Halloween Blog Candy

This post will remain on the top of my blog until this Friday, October 24th. For more recent posts, please scroll down..

What is the better time for the candy then Halloween? Even if it's not real candy, but a Blog Candy instead.. I would actually go for these goodies over candy any time ;-)..

Another reason for the Blog Candy is to celebrate a new milestone for my blog. Now it is rated at #345, that means that my blog has moved into a higher ranking and is now showing in the 301-350 bracket on Stamping Top 50 website. (I know it doesn't show 345 on my blog yet, but it does on their website and should be updated on my blog within a few days..) Updated 10/21 - Oh, look, it is already at 337!!!

This is what I have for the Blog Candy this time:


Oh, sorry.. Cat is not included ;-)

But here what is included: Stampin' Up Simply Scrappin Kit - Just Delightful (with cardstock, printed paper and tons of cardstock stickers), Halloween and Christmas stickers, tons of Prima Flowers, some ribbon, Raining Tilda stamp (used by me only once). Plus I will stamp for you 20 Tilda and/or Edwin images of your choice. Cranberry Hill Mercantile sponsored the package of the pink Paper Frills and the clear stamp set by Stampendous with so many different greeting !!

And here is what you need to do to enter:

- We are going to play a little Treasure Hunt this time.. Please visit the Cranberry Hill Mercantile's blog, here is the website http://stamponover.blogspot.com/ . Check out my classes there, whenever it says "with Irina" in the title, those are my classes. Then leave a comment on my blog under this post and let me know which one of my classes you would take if you lived in the area.

- If you are one of my students and already take my classes, please leave a comment under this post and let me know what type of class/es you would like to see in the future.

- To receive a second entry into the blog candy, please mention my Blog Candy on your blog and leave a second/separate comment under this post.

If you don't live in US, not a problem. I will ship internationally!!

I will pick the winner at around 8 pm PST on Friday, October 24th.

Good luck to all!!

Hugs,

:) Irina

I would totally take Halloween Tilda and Edwin AND I would also take the class called Fall Tilda with Irina!!!
Both of those classes sound AMAZING and they would teach me how to use my Copics and Scor Pal better!!
I so wish I lived near you!!!
PS. I don't have a scrapping blog to be able to link :(

Susan said...

I would take the Cuttlebug and Nestabilities for Christmas and Introducing Sarah Kay classes in a heartbeat if I were closer!

Heather "Hev" said...

Congratulations on your scale up the ladder of success!!! Heres to makeing it closer to the 300 and beyond!!

Scor-Pal Boxes and More with Irina looks like a really fun class :)

Will add you to my candy store on the side bar of my blog

Have a great day!!

WOW!
It's quite hard to pick one or even 2 classes because they are ALL incredibly amazing and I think that they inspire a lot of people. If I lived in your area I would love to take all CLASSES but most of all I would take "Introducting Sarah Kay! with Irina" (because it's so lovely and I'm dreaming that maybe one day I will be able to make this card for my sweet babygirl) and ofcourse I would like to take class "Penny Black Halloween with Irina" (because I just adore CATS).
And I would like to give thanks to you because your works inspire me. I so wish to have possibilities to tke your classes but I live toooooooo far from you, in Estonia where such kind of things as scrapbooking and cardmaking are just in the beginning of their way.
Oops! Sorry for so long comment! But I just like to talk sometimes =)

P.S. By the way sorry but I don't have blog to be able to link :(

Hi Irina,
I'd take your happy birthday class or your scorpal and cuttlebug! (Actually any of your classes! :) Always love your cards and you are an awesome teacher).

Hugs,
Michelle

Kathy Billings said...

Hi there...I would take all but the halloween because I don't celebrate it. I would take the Cuttlebug and ScorPal class because I love those butterflies, the Happy Birthday because I love the little chicken coming out of the cake and I want to learn to color better with my Copics. Also the Cuttlebug and Nestabilities class because I want to learn how to use the Nesties.

Irina - I would take the Cuttlebug/Nestabilities class. I have seen these items listed under other blogs but have never seen how they are used. I was even looking for Nestabilities this weekend.

Irina, I would definitely sign up for your Halloween Edwin and Tilda class--gorgeous cards!!!

Kathy Billings said...

OMG...I didn't look all the way down. I would love to take the Sarakay class bcause those stamps are gorgeous but I would also love to take the Score Boxes and More because I love those purses. Is there a way for those of us that can't go to the class to get the instructions and patterns for the purses?

Annie said...

I sure wish I lived close enough to take Cuttlebug Meets Nestabilities and also a Sarah Kay class.
Do you think you'll ever have "online" classes?
Thanks for sharing!

Pam's Pride said...

I would love to take Cuttlebug Meets Nestabilities with Irina because I just bought some Nesties last weekend...and I still have not used them!
Off to link you up to my blog!

Brenda said...

What great candy, thank you for the chance to win. Well I would love to take any class from you, but if I had to pick one it would be Scor-Pal boxes and more. I just got me a scor-pal and would love to learn any tricks and tips on it. Have a great stamping day!!

Brenda said...

Ok I just linked you up on my blog here http://stamp-it-up.blogspot.com/2008/10/blog-candy-alert.html

JenMarie said...

I would totally be at the CB/Scor-pal class, I have a S-P and don't do much w/ it.
And the nesties class...and...
Ok, you should move to GA! :)

Anonymous said...

I would so take the Cuttlebug and Nestabilities Christmas class. I have a Cuttlebug and absolutley love it. I have some circle nestabilities and have no clue what to do with them. I do need to go and explore all the possibilites. So with that in mind, either move to TN or I will need to move to CA...lol. Love the blog candy. Thanks for the chance to win.

Jacqueline TresBella said...

I would take the cuttle bug class and the Happy Birthday card class, because they are so colorful. All of our locally owned scrap/stamp stores have closed and I really miss taking classes. I wish you were closer!
Jacqueline

Lynn Anne said...

Wow! I would definitely take the Happy Birthday class - one, would like more practice using these copics I have sitting here, but especially two, those designs look so great and colorful for little children -- I am always needing kids' cards and never know what to do to make them look like they're for kids instead of grownups. Your samples are so much fun!

Irina-

1. That is not fair- how could I pick just 1? I love the whipper snappers, Tilda/Edwin and the Sarah Kay- I would take them all! Honestly!

2. Your cards are fabulous!

3. Thanks for offering this wonderful prize!
Heidi

Heidi said...

Oh- AND I will promote your candy on my blog too! I will add you to my blog candy roll call!

AngelBear said...

I love all your cards so it is really hard to choose but I think I would take your Whipper Snapper Snowmen class because those snowmen are just too cute!

Bev said...

Wow do I wish I lived in your area. I would love to take all of them but my favorite would be Scor-pal & Cuttlebug Card Class, Happy B'day Cards, Fall Tilda, Whipper Snapper Snowmen, and the Scor-Pal Boxes & more
Congrats on your blog. Love it

Tracey said...

WOW!! Your classes look amazing! I would sign up for the Happy Birthday one - those cards rock!!!

Thanks for the chance at the awesome candy!!!

Melissa said...

Ooh, this is a tough call! All of your classes look great! I couldn't pick just one, so if I lived in your area, I would sign up to take Fall Tilda, Whipper Snapper Snowmen, and Happy Birthday. You want to come to the East Coast and teach a few classes, right? ;)

Cindy said...

If I lived by you I would take EVERY class!!! But I for sure would do the snowman one as I collect snowmen.
Thanks Irina

Ashley said...

I wish I did live in your area so I could take your classes. I would want to take the Scor-pal boxes class.

Denise said...

Introducing Sara Kay with Irena is the class I would take. I would love any lesson with you really. You are very talented. I (sad to say) just purchased my first nestabilities and I would like help using them. I would also love lessons using copic markers.

Irene Lenihan said...

I sure do wish I lived near by so I could take several classes. I liked the Kodomo Cards class best but love the Scor-Pal boxes and more class too.

Valems said...

Gorgeous candy! Thanks for a chance to win. If I were closer I would take the Sarah Kay cla(Introducting Sarh Kay), defirnitely.
I will link you now on my blog

Maylee said...

I would take your "Fall Tilda" class. Congratulations on meeting you milestone. Your cards are just beautiful!

Anonymous said...

Hi Irina,

I've been thinking about which classes I like best and you make it so hard because I haven't taken a class from you that I didn't like. Of the more recent classes I love the witches and Tilda halloween classes. I also love the box class, the scor-pal clas even though I have a hard time getting it right but the look is fabulous. See how hard this is for me? You know that I love all of your classes. I could mention the older classes too but I don't think that's what you want right now. You're upcoming birthday class is adorable and I love, love, love the upcoming scor-pal and cuttlebug class. It reminds me of the elegant cards you began with. Oh so diffcult too choose.

What I'd love to have a class in is airbrushing with copics. I saw that you can even do easter egss with the air brush. That's my suggestion. Otherwise just keep on doing what you're doing. You're a fabulous artist.

Hugs,

Sylvia

V Colbourne said...

Awesome giveaway! I just love dropping by your blog and seeing the new creations. I wish I could join every class, but if I was in the area I definitely would like to try Cuttlebug Meets Nestabilities!! I just got my first cuttlebug and any new things to do with it would be great. Too bad I live here in Canada and so far away :(...lol...

Ashley in AZ said...

Hi Irina: Love your sweet offerings and I would love to have it come to Arizona! If I was around the corner from you, I would do your Cuttlebug/Nesties Christmas and the Scorpal/Cuttlebug butterflies as it is on my birthday. Would be a great way to spend my birthday.
Thanks for your great website.
Ashley in AZ

Keyla said...

I will certainly sign up for your Halloween Edwin and Tilda class.

wendy peatross said...

I'd love to take any of your card classes. They all look fun. But if Ihad to choose just one, it would the Fall Tilda Cards.

Jules said...

This was a difficult choice because I would probably take them all! I really like the Kodomo cards so that would probably be the one I would take (with the Scor-Pal Boxes and More coming in a close 2nd!).

karen n. said...

Irina, you create so many wonderful cards that it's always hard to choose which class to take! Since I have to travel so far to take a class, I try to take one that features a completely different technique each month. I really loved the Christmas cards you designed using the cracked glass technique. Congratulations on your continued success!

Score pal boxes and more. I love the whole concept of assortment card giving but could really improve on my presentations. So your boxes and more would definatley be my choice.

I'm posting on my bloggy about your RAK, although it ends tonight.

Congrats to the winner!
