Vintage Earrings

I made this little match box to hold a neat pair of earrings made from the Vintage Flowers from the last mini catalog.
I put posts on the back with Crystal Effects. What a WOW gift for someone special. Until next time! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

Fun Flower Pin

I made this jacket pin using the Fun Flower Die from Stampin' Up. I love the Daffodil Delight and it really stands out when sponged on the edges. I put a craft pin back on the flower using Crystal Effects. Makes a great gift and with all the colors available from SU you can make one for every outfit!
Until next time!

Thomas the Train

A friend of mine asked about a Thomas the Train punchie so I made this for her today! Hope she likes him. I used Stampin Up punches and cardstock.
Here is a list:
Punches: Tab punch Label Punch Large Circle (2 ½) ½” Eyes – 3/8” for black of eye ¾ circle for cheeks; yellow, blue, 2- gray ½” gray in the light Nose is from the tab punch then RE-punch to make it smaller – round nose and cut in ½ Eyebrows corners of square punch Light on front label punch RE-punched to make smaller Top of chimney is a part of the tab punch trimmed Cut ½” black for chimney Red bumper is ¾” wide Gray bumper is ¾” wide glued behind the red one The rounded pacific point top is a part of the Scallop frame DIE cut Then I cut 2 rectangle pieces of Pacific Point for the front of the train. The ‘tires’ are ½ of the window word punch Mouth was cut from the large circle REPUNCHED to make a mouth shape
Hope this helps so you can make one too! It will be a great embellishment for a scrapbook page or a great birthday card!
Until next time!

Graduation for Zach

My second eldest grandson is graduating from high school next week and I made this business card holder (gift card holder) for him. I used his school colors and on the front it has a cap and diploma; inside a greeting and a gift card.
I hope he likes it! It is a great way to give a gift card in the biz card holder. (holds money too!)
Until next time!

Challenge 171 - Stamp A Holics

Our fearless leader, Carole Anne', provided our 3D non-card challenge this week. A friend of mine gave me this box to 'recycle' and I needed a box for a small thank you gift (key chain) I made using a bottle cap and Stampin' Up stamp and charm.
The rose is made from the owl punch and from a YouTube tutorial by Valita's Designs & Fresh Fold blog. It is quick and easy. This is the first one I made and learned alot and plan to use it more often. I coated it with Crystal Effects and it would also make a nice pin for your jacket too!
Run on over to Stamp A Holics and check out what the other Design Team members have done and PLAY ALONG!
Until next time!

Father's Day

This technique is called 'inchie border' and makes a great addition to this Father's Day card. I used the Stampin' Up Plane and Simple stamp set (compliments of Brenda, thanks). Marina Mist and Wild Wasabi is the carstock with a touch of Baker's Twine. And don't you just love the new Postage Punch!
Until next time!

Page-in-a-Box

Here's another scrapin' idea from the NEW Technique Junkie Stampbooking CD (available June 1) Be sure and be the first in your group and pre-order!
What a neat conversation piece? I used Cajun Craze Stampin' Up cardstock and for the background I took the reverse sheet from my SU Chipboard alphabet letters and traced around the letters j-a-c-o-b for the background! Makes an interesting background.
Until next time!

Diaper Cake

I made this Diaper Cake for a Stampin' friend of mine for her daughter's baby shower last week. The design was inspired by her printed shower invitation; colors and all. I hope they enjoyed it. I used 68 size 2 diapers following instructions I found on You Tube! They are quite fun and interesting to make! Her baby girl is due soon and her lovely name is going to be Addison.
Until next time!

A trip to Dairy Queen! Jacob is really loving that Blizzard. He changes every day although this was in March (I'm a little behind) and it has been a while since I scrapped. I used Pacific Point with Real Red accents and Bashful Blue mats! 12 x 12 LO. Hope you like it.
Until next time!

Sail Away

This is the greatest little stamp! So many different looks; imagine the possibilities. Let your imagination run wild with such a 'calming' stamp. This was inspired by a birthday card my hubby received from his friend in North Carolina. Not the best shading ...Simple yet effective. Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time!

Another Sneak Peak at the NEW Stampbooking CD by Technique Junkies. I love using black and white pictures. This is 6x6 Stampin' Up Basic Black and I stamped and embossed the big letters with SU white embossing powder. This technique is called Faux Pewter done on the round title letters! I love it and it goes so well with the B&W pictures. Be sure to pre-order your CD today.
Until next time!

Hubby's birthday is Monday and this is perfect for him. I used a sunset picture he took on his last trip to Montana. Using Stazon I stamped images from Nature Silhouettes. I saw this technique on somone's blog this week and for the life if me I can't remember where but thank you for such a great, easy 'personal' card technique.
Until next time!

Fun Flower Bookmark

I finally received my back-ordered Fun Flower Die from Stampin' Up and just had to play with it a little. I saw this bookmark on somebody's blog a while ago (and can't remember who). Anyway it is the coolest idea for a little gift for MOM or Grandma or your special friend. And it is quick and easy. I just love it!
Until next time!
