"Make-It Monday" Evergreen Elegance

Hey there friends!  I hope your weekend was terrific!  If you have been affected by Hurricane Ida, flooding, fires, etc. I pray that you are all safe!  Last week, the day after we brought our daughter and her horse home from our son's place, there was a fire threatening his home.  Thankfully he is safe and the fire is out.  Today, another son's place is being threatened by fire.  These fires are consuming so much of California.  Dan, Kate and I are all safe as are our adult kids. Tomorrow, Kate, begins her Junior year in high school.  It's another year of anything but normal....but she is blessed to be able to attend in person!

It's Monday and I have a beautiful tutorial to to inspire you!  ENJOY!

Hello there!  I'm excited to share that we brought our daughter and her horse home today!  YAY!  We are still on evacuation warning, but the town west of us was changed for order to warning yesterday.  My husband feels like we are okay for now because the fire has slowed.  There is a fire to our north that we are keeping a close eye on!  Continued prayers are appreciated!

"Make-It Monday" Cutest Halloween Treat Box

Hello there!  I hope you had a terrific weekend!  Did you find any time to create?  Things are really strange here due to the fires.  We are still on evacuation warning.  The town next to us was on evacuation order and it has just been changed to a warning so I'm hoping that is a good sign.  We so want to bring our daughter home and the horses too.  I miss waking up to my girl...my hugs and kisses and I miss looking out the window at Shyanne and Teddy in their corrals!  I even miss them kicking their troughs when they want to be fed!  Maybe tomorrow will be the day! 

Before I share today's tutorial, I'd like to make sure you know I'm still able to place orders if you're not wanting to place them online!  You can email them to me at scraphappenshere@gmail.com - I'm 1,500 points away from earning the Western Caribbean Cruise in 2022 and would so appreciate any and all orders!  I have until September 30th to make it happen!  Be sure to check out my monthly special below the tutorial!  

It's Monday and time for a fun Make-It Monday tutorial!  Halloween is right around the corner so I thought I'd share this cute treat holder!!

Expressions In Ink Pocket Card

Hi there!  How was your day today?  I hope you were able to get some creating done!  I've been busy doing nothing but waiting.  Well, I did make a potato salad to go with our BLT's tonight.  We still have our evacuee company which is helping me stay busy.  We're just constantly looking for updates on the fire!  We also rounded up the same sheep we moved about 10 days ago...not easy and a bunch of chickens.  They are now being evacuated to the coast!  What an adventure!  My family and I are all safe.  We're still on a warning of evacuation but not an order yet.  The winds have been in our favor and we actually could see the sky and sun today.  It was wonderful and heartbreaking at the same time...because the fire is moving towards our neighboring communities.  It's about five miles away from us now.  We are still praying for rain....lots of rain!  The winds are predicted to change on Friday, making it come our direction faster.  Please pray for rain, the firefighters and all those involved in getting the fires out...not just ours, but all those that are burning throughout the Western United States! 

Here's a fun tutorial using one of my favorite designer papers!

·         DSP: 5-1/4” x 4”, then cut in half diagonally

           

Instructions:

1.    Burnish the folds in the two Shaded Spruce CS bases.

2.    Lay the bases side by side, lying horizontally, so the folds are on the left and right.

3.    Cut the front of the left base diagonally from the top left corner to the bottom right corner.

4.    Cut the front of the right base diagonally from the bottom left to the top right.

5.    Glue the back of the bases together, so that the triangular fronts overlap in the front.

6.    Glue the DSP triangles onto the two card fronts.

7.    Using Tear & Tape, adhere the left front onto the inside, only along the very bottom edge.

8.    Using Tear & Tape along the bottom edge, and glue where the two fronts overlap, adhere the right front down. Now you have a pocket!

9.    Using the large ink splotch stamp and Pale Papaya ink, stamp along the top edge of the 5-1/4” x 3-3/4” Basic White Thick CS piece.

11. Die cut the sentiment using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

13. Lay all the die cut pieces on the front of the pocket to arrange them, then glue all the pieces together in a cluster.

14. Adhere the cluster onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals (I used the regular size and the mini.)

15. Apply sequins onto the large flower and the larger two of the tiny flowers.

16. Slide the Basic White Thick CS piece into the top of the pocket.
