Holiday Tag

Good Tuesday Morning to my paper crafting friends!  I hope you are having a FABULOUS day!  I have a QUICK share for you today....a FUN gift tag that I made for a retreat treat!

Isn't this adorable?!?!  I used the Chalk Talk framelits to cut the tag in Lost Lagoon, inked it with Crafters White ink, added a sentiment and some frosted sequins, rhinestones and made a punch art snowman using the 1 3/4" circle punch, the Heart punch (for the nose), the 1" circle punch for the mouth and I colored some Perfect pearls for the eyes!  SUPER EASY and SUPER CUTE!  It would be really cute with at TO: FROM: stamped on it too.  I am using it on a treat I have made for my upcoming retreat...I don't want to ruin the surprise, so I will show you that treat during or after the retreat!

Thanks a bunch for stopping by!  Have a FANTASTIC and BLESSED day! 

Hope to see you again....REALLY SOON!

Good morning...again....I wanted to be sure you all remember that the Holiday Extravaganza begins today! 

Here are today's DOORBUSTER sales - TODAY ONLY!!!!!



My Pumpkin

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  I'm so excited....I'm off to see Fleetwood Mac tonight with my husband!  It's going to be SO MUCH FUN!  I do have a post for you though...I LOVE it and hope you do too! 

Today at 5pm PST I am participating in my second facebook hop with gals from my SU group.  This is my project!

I made this little pumpkin using canning jar rings!  I was inspired by the one below that I saw on pinterest!  Of course...because I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator...I wanted to make mine using ALL Stampin' Up!  products. 

I used 24 canning jar rings and wrapped them in Color Me Autumn Designer Washi tape then tied them together to form them into a pumpkin. 

I added a stem that I made from the Burlap ribbon which I had partially unraveled.  I added some leaves which I made from the Autumn Accents Bigz die and ran through my Bigshot in the Woodgrain embossing folder.  I cut pieces of Old Olive card stock 1/8" x 11" and curled some around a pencil and some around my piercing tool (the pointed end) to add texture! 

I used the For All Things stamp set for the tag which I made with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.  I also used Nature Chevron ribbon and 1/4" Early Espresso Cotton ribbon I just LOVE it!

Be sure to go like my facebook page and follow what the other gals came up with .  Our theme was fall and I'm sure there is some beautiful projects to see!  It starts this evening at 5pm California time!

Beauty of the Season and Ornamental Pine

Good afternoon!  Well I had a post for you yesterday...but for some reason...I did not publish it...so TODAY...I have two cards for you! 

My youngest daughter, Kathryn, is in girl scouts and is selling nuts and candy right now.  One of the caramel candies comes in a tin...which is my inspiration for these two cards.  You can find inspiration ANYWHERE!

Here is my inspiration and my first card!  This card was made with the Hardwood stamp set, Ornamental Pines stamp set and the Beauty of the Season stamp set.  The colors are Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Real Red and Mossy Meadow.  I LOVE how it turned out!

Here is my second card....I really wanted to make a birdhouse...because the tin is a birdhouse.  It was simple to make.  After stamping my Basic Gray in VersaMark with the Hardwood stamp, I used the circle from the middle of a stamp in the Chalk Talk stamp set....(yes....I save those pieces of stamps that normally get thrown away)...to make the opening to the birdhouse by stamping several times in VersaMark.  The bird...OF COURSE....is the Bird Builder punch....the one I thought I would NEVER USE!  I colored my Basic Pearls with my Cherry Cobbler Blendabilitie and added some Dazzling Diamonds paper to make the roof look like it had snow on it.  I used the Ornamental Pine stamp set...isn't it BEAUITIFUL! 

My lesson of the day is...look around...there is LOTS of INSPIRATION out there!

Thanks for stopping by and

EXCITING NEWS....TUTORIAL section is here!

Hey there everyone!  I have EXCITING news to share with you!  I now have a tutorials section!!!  My first tutorial is for my VERY POPULAR Curvy Keepsake Box Snowman!  You'll find it on the left sidebar!  HAVE FUN CREATING!!!!

Thanks so much for hanging in there with me and for supporting me through your purchases from my online store!!!

Envelope Punch Board Box

Good morning and Happy Veterans Day!  I hope you are enjoying a day off...I know I am...the kids are home, the husband is home...it's kinda nice having them around!  We enjoy these freedoms because of our soldiers...THANK YOU!

Today I have another box to share with you.  It's just like the one I shared the other day only bigger!  You start with an 8 X 8 piece of cardstock or designer paper.  This is Under the Tree Specialty designer paper.  Line up at the three on the Envelope Punch Board, punch and score repeat on the other three sides.  Then you need to flip the paper over and punch on all sides at three...the score line is already there from doing the other side.

Add some ribbon, bakers twine a All is Calm Snowflake embellishment with a tag.  I chose the sentiment from the Ornamental Pine stamp set.  It would also be really cute with a TO: FROM: on the tag.

I am really loving this paper...it's really thick and sturdy!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hope to see you again tomorrow!

Cheerful Christmas

Good Monday Morning!  It's been so busy around my house and the kids are home from school today and tomorrow...but I do have a quick Christmas card to share with you!  Remember back in October I shared a card that my up-upline had prepared for a make and take for our monthly meeting.  This my take on here card!  I love the colors Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Lost Lagoon.  I also love the simpleness of it.  I stamped the sentiment, which is from the Cheerful Christmas stamp set, in Versa Mark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  The Christmas tree is stamped with the Festival of Trees stamp set and cut out with the Tree punch.  I also used All Is Calm designer paper, the Filligree Frame embossing folder and Basic Rhinestones. 

Thanks for stopping by today!  
Have a great day!

Envelope Punch Board Boxes

Hey there my crafty friends!  I'm in Modesto this morning....hanging with the family...maybe visiting with a few old friends...it's a great day!  I have a really cute box to share with you today!  I made it with the Envelope Punch Board.  It holds about one dozen chocolate kisses!  What a great thinking of you gift to give your secret pal...or kiddos...or hubby...etc.

I made this box with the Under the Tree Specialty Designer paper. The tag is made with the Merry Everything stamp set.  The embellishments used were All Is Calm Snowflakes, Natural and Old Olive Two-Tone Twine and Linen Thread.

To make this box cut your designer paper into a 6” X  6” square.  Line the designer paper up with the 2 on the Envelope Punch board, punch and scored.  Slide the cardstock to 4, punch and score.  Repeat both steps on the remaining three sides.  Cut with scissors at the corner score line to the score line on the right and left side.  Fold in and adhere sides.  Punch hole in tabs (which you have already rounded on the Envelope Punch board) facing each other and tie together with twine.
