October is "STAMP OUT BREAST CANCER" month!

Amuse Studio is pleased to announce a massive promotion for the month of October!! We are promoting breast cancer awareness & we are giving away 10,000 FREE "Fight like a Girl" stamp sets!

Each set includes a "push-pin" stamp that women can use to stamp their calendar each month to serve as a reminder to do a self-exam, which is so critical for early detection. There will also be information on breast health included with each stamp set.

Starting on Monday, October 1st go to my webstore   and order your free set.  The stamp set must be ordered through a consultant and will have a $3 shipping and handling fee per set.

note holders

My friend Jeanne, had these at her craft show a few months ago and I decided to make some for my upcoming craft shows. I found these large clothespins at Michaels and decorated them with various patterened cardstock. Added a few embellishments and ribbon and you have a darling note holder. It is a great way to display a favorite picture too.

Here are a few that I have made up. Each one has it's own them all!

minty snowman

Another treat I am working on for upcoming craft shows. These are just mints covered with snowflake stamped cardstock and then the face was stamped on and the nose colored in. I drew the coal buttons on with a sharpie, tied some ribbon for the scarf and you have a cute treat.

I am making these darling owl treats for a craft show. I took a card class at my friend, Sylvia's house a week ago and this was one of the treats we made. They are so easy and fun to make. I put a fun size M and M pack inside for the treat.

This is a great card to make for Halloween. It is so easy when you use the new bat dies from amuse studio along with the new onyx chevron ribbon. The screenprint background gives it just enough creepiness and the word "spooky" from the candy corn kisses stamp set is embossed.

Gena had the perfect space for her workshop.
We all could gather around two tables to do our projects.

Counterspace was perfect to display samples and some amuse products.

A little closer look!

snow burgers anyone?

My nephew got married yesterday and as part of his gift I had my friend Donna make this wonderful holiday decoration. Donna is very talented at what she does. The Weber grill is perfect for this occasion, as my nephew's last name is Weber. How could I pass it up! I hope he and his new bride will love it too!

A little closer look.

big rosette!

I made this extremely large rosette for my in-laws 60th anniversary celebration. I cut 4 strips out using the amuse rosette die, folded and adhered end to end. then I cut 2 out, stamped a design on them and adhered it to the center of the large one. Using the big celebrations stamp set I stamped the 60 and cut it out and popped in on the rosette. I love how it turned out!
You can do so many things with the dies from amuse studio.
