Christmas is coming!

Just wanted to share 2 of the projects that we will be doing in my holiday class in Nov. (date to be announced later) I absolutely love the new vintage look to the deck the halls paper in the holiday mini, and the colors are beautiful!
This first one is a cute box with 2 stamped candles inside. I love the vintage look of this project!
And I really love this glitter bulb! The picture doesn't do it justice, it is so pretty! So if these projects look like fun and you want to join me in making them, stay tuned, I will be posting the class date in the next week or so.  Thank you for looking and enjoy!

Busy weekend

This weekend was busy busy, Started off yesterday morning watching one of my granddaughter's soccer game, they won! Way to go Reesy! Then it was off to the parade with my oldest, his daughters were sick so they didn't get to go. Then my daughter and I went to the state fair with her little one to see all the animals and displays. Nana slept really good last night!
Today I had some of my stampers out to work on Stamp-a-stack cards. I always have a good time with these gals. Here is one of the cards we did today, I wanted a more manly card to add to the bunch so this is the one I came up with.
This was made with a set that is new in this catalog Out West 120543. The paper is Sahara Sand, Early Espresso, and a little bit of Old Olive. The Cowboy is stamped with Sahara Sand ink on Sahara Sand CS. The stars were inked and then spritzed with Log Cabin Smooch Spritz 119921. Hope you enjoy!

Well as much as I wanted to be crafty today, it didn't happen! Instead I spent my day cleaning! But in the process I did get my craftroom cleaned agian, so at least I can find things agian! I did a couple scrap pages yesterday to enter in the local fair and I 'll post them after the fair is over in 2 weeks. So I wanted to put something up so I went back thru some of my older pictures and found this one I did a year or so ago.
I did the dryer sheet technique on this one and used our Dazzling Diamonds on it. Hope you enjoy it and I'll be playing for sure tomorrow and see what I can come up with to share! Have a wonderful evening!

One of the demonstrations at convection was using the new Decor elements Spooky things in the Holiday mini and the Designer Jewels, so I searched around until I found the white pumpkins so I could make my own. The picture frame was from the dollar store, the decor elements are on the glass then I put a piece of Cajun Craze paper in for the background! Hope you like them!

Rag bag

After convention I just had to order the square scallop die and make me a rag purse everyone was showing off. I thought they were so cute, this was my sample bag I even put a pocket on one end for my cell phone, Cuz I'm forever loseing it in my purse!

ok final post for tonight! I picked up this paper box at the dollar store and decorated it for a small gift for a friend (can't show the gift yet!) I love our new vintage paper in the holiday mini, This is the Deck the Halls Designer series paper 120810. And if you look real close on the top is our new fabric! And even though I didn't get very good pictures, it matches the paper! And of course I used the Deck the Halls fabric 121716! I had a really hard time cutting into this material because it's so pretty!! The label on top is also a new punch, Decorative Label 120907, and the extra large oval 119859. The label stamp is also retired out of the summer mini.
Well thank you for looking!

Well this is part 2 of my post tonight! I have a hard time getting things on here the way I want them to show up so thought if I did them in multiable post I can get it right!

Ok here is another TP roll! This one is decorated for halloween goodies! I used the Wicked Cool stamp set 120600, the orange ribbon is actually a retired tangerine tango that matched the only orange, so I went ahead and used it! The lace on the take is out of the new holiday mini, I just love it!1/2 lace trim 120988

ok here we go agian with side ways pictures! This little card uses our treat cups 116802
and the sweet centers stamp set 116521. Papers are Concord crush, black and Pumpkin pie.

Oh I do love the weekends! Had a great time this weekend with grandkids yesterday and Hubby today! But I did find time to be crafty too! I picked up these little hanging boards at a local store thinking I wanted to do something for the grandkids room. I started with the youngest one first and I love the way it turned out.

I used the Wild Wasabi, and Mango Melon papers and didn't even know what picture I was going to use, and they matched perfect! I inked the edges of the mats and the butterflies. The butterfies were cut useing SU die beautiful butterflies 114507, and the Beatiful Wings embosslit 118138,
the buttons were cut with the sizzlits die Buttons #5 113440, I embossed the DS paper using the Background texture plates #1 114512.
The DS paper is from the Subtles patterns designer series paper stack 117152.
The ribbon is retired and I actually took it out of my old ribbon sampler! The buttons I gave a coat of crystal effects 101055 to give it the shine. And of course had to add some bling with our new rhinestones 119246! The alphabit stamp set is retired and was in the summer mini.
Hope you enjoy it!
