All-Inclusive Stationery Box

I got the design for these great stationery boxes from Jackie Topas's Blog. Be sure and check it out for all the directions. This is my October class. Some of my friend's have just been waiting and waiting for this one to come around. Each kit is made with one half of a Simply Scrappin KIt, plus pen, beads, 4 regular envelopes and 3 3x3 envelopes. No stamping involved! THey can always jazz it up at home. But honestly, I really like the way they look, even w/o stampin or ribbons. My class gets to choose from I Wish or Best Ever. If you did not get the evite , but want to come... just let me know!

Halloween Spook-Tacular Class/ Sept 21st

I am having this great little class tomorrow. Lots of fun Halloween projects using new papers and stamp sets. The door hanger was inspired by Andrea Walford. You can find the pattern on her blog. Frankie was inspired by similar projects posted by many different crafters on splitcoaststampers.com. The little cookie holder , made form a cd sleeve, is so quick and easy to make. The two little baskets are made form an exclusive Stampin' Up! die for the Big Shot.

Merry Cali-Christmas!

Don't you love when you think up a card and it actually turns out just the way you envisioned it? Rarely does a finished project look the way I first planned it to look. Sometimes that is good and sometimes that is bad. LOL This one went from brain to paper in one easy movement. I love those days!This was for a swap on splitcoaststampers.com and I made 10 of them. My hand was killing me from all that distressing. I would love for this to be our family Christmas card, but I don't think my hands can take it. :)

All supplies are SUO:

cardstock: Very Vanilla, Kraft, Baja Blue, Brocade Blue
Ink: Brocade Blue, baja Blue
Acessories: 1" double stitched grosgrain in Baja Blue, blender pens, dazzling diamonds,, hemp, word window punch, colored pencils, cutter kit ( distressing tool)
Stamp Sets: Shellebrate, Warm Words ( on dormant list)

Goodbye Summer.....

Fall weather is finally showing up around here. We were having a heat wave and it was getting old. I love fall and expect that I will be posting tons of fall projects on my pages in the weeks to come.

This 6x6 recipe is my farewell to summer. It is a friend's recipe for Strawberry Spinach Salad. It is so good. Strawberries are getting a little harder to find now, so I better make it one last time. The strawberries were embossed, cut out and pop-dotted.

All supplies Stampin' Up!

Real Red , Old Olive, Whisper White
Tart and Tangy Stamp Set
From The Kitchen Of Stamp Set
Embossing powder, pop dots, 1/2 striped grosgrain

Two Months??

I just realized it took me two months to actually make another post after I created the blog. It is a lot to get used to, but I think I am really going to enjoy it with a little practice. :)

Seriously Dude!

My clubs are having a card swap this month and the theme is "Kids Cards". I went more towards the pre-teen/teen side with my cards. I did a version that is sure to make a boy or a girl smile. If they aren't wowed by the card, I am sure they will love the gift card that tucks into the little inside pocket. The card base measures 4 3/4" x 9" and it is scored at 4" and 8" on the long side. Each card has it's own special embellishment. Crystal Effects makes the boys card look like mud and a girl card just can't be without Chunky Glitter!All items used are Stampin' Up!I saw the measurements somewhere online for this type of card. Unfortunately, I did not save the link and I am not sure whom to credit with it. If I come across it, I will be sure and let you know.

Supplies Used:

Boy card: So Cool stamp set, Pacific Point, Chocolate Chip, and So saffron card stock, Chocolate Chip ink. Crystal Effects,Window Punch.

Girl Card: Seriously Sassy Stamp Set,Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, and So saffron card stock, Chocolate Chip ink. Chunky Glitter.
