Altered File folder Note pad holder

Loved making this!
Really cute and easy to make.

I found a tutorial on SCS and fell in love.
The folders I found on the SU clearance rack as well
as the matching DSP! Whoo Hoo for a good sale!
The note pad is from the ACMoore $1 rack.

The paper flowers I made using the new MFT Rolled flower dies.
Really fun and really easy to use.
Can't really see it in the pics but I sprayed the flowers with
Glimmer Mist to give them some sparkle.

Have a GREAT day everyone!

I'm gearing up for the upcoming
DVD release of Eclipse!

I was going to make these Ornaments
for all of my Twi-hard friends but they
are a PITA to make.
Because they are layer with CS vs just coloring
on the transparency they had to be
assembled in the ornament...

If your a Twi-hard you will get it
if not...No I'm not crazy just a
fan having fun! lol

Sparkles Forever

Altered Mailbox

Rainy Day in Maryland.

Its a good day to stay home and alter something!

I found this really neat mailbox at a local thrift store
for $2. I loved the scallop boarder around the top
of the mailbox.

Sorry the pics are so dark! One day I'll have a stamp studio
with lots of natural light....a girl can dream.

I painted the box Cherry Red (lowes) it matches SU cherry cobbler perfect.
Used Greenhouse Gala DSP (SU) to cover the middle of the box.
For the scallop I use the new SU die Tasteful Trim and
chocolate chip CS. Then used some crocheted flowers
from the same thrift store, made the leaves with a nestie die and matching DSP,
the pearls are from MM they were white and I needed cream so I colored them with
a light brown copic marker.

Hope everyone is have a great day!

Stay inky my friends!

Teacher Treats

Hello Everyone!

These are Teacher Treats that I made today.
They are an old stand by in the Stamping world but
just what I needed this year. Time hasn't been on
my side lately. Seems I always have more to do than
time to get it all done. So quick and cute was just
what I needed to get these done!

I used Black SU cardstock, Spiderweb embossing folder,
white chalk ink and Offray ribbon to create the candy bar slider.
The Stamp Set used in one of my very favorites! I just
love this set its called Batty for You is from SU.
So easy and fun to use and NO COLORING!
Whoohooo for that, when you don't have a lot of time.

Happy Haunting!

Day of Gratitude,

but a friend asked if I could do I'll do
it for her.

This is one of the project I came up with.
It's a votive candle (flameless) holder.
These are simple, cute, and easy to make!

Problem with Cling Mount stamps....?

Anyone else having this problem?
Cling mount SU stamps not sticking to the box.

I was at a SBS a couple weeks ago and
someone had came up with a
great solution for this problem.

Problem ^ ****************** Solution ^
This is the solution! Peal and Stick the negative piece of rubber
into the case, punch out and add the stickers just as directed
then simply push them back into the cutout.
It works like a charm!
Just wish I would have found this solution sooner!

Whoever came up with this idea...God Bless You!
You have made my world a little better!
I'm sure you will keep me from loosing stamps
and for that I'm thankful.

SBS Thank you gift.

Hello Crafty Friends!

I'm hosting another Shoe Box Swap in Oct. but the
swap will be Christmas/Winter themed.
These are going to be for a little game.
All but 4 have ribbon inside the special 4 will have
something more! Can't give it away just yet...
several ladies that attend my swaps read my blog.
So just a little teaser for them!

I just love the pillow box die!
It's one of the easiest dies to use, they don't
take a ton of red tape.
Just a GREAT die. I'm also in love
with these two stamp sets
Tiny Tags is truly a MUST HAVE
it adds that little something without
digging for hours for the perfect embellishment.
Punch Potpourri is a SU level 1 hostess set
and it's GREAT it will be a go-to stamp set for years to come!

Hugs and stay inky!

School Punch Cards.

My Oldest is having a hard time in 1st grade. He's not wanting to
let Mommy go! So the Teacher and I came up with a punch card idea,
if he keeps a smile in the mornings and through out the day he will get a
punch on his card. At the end of the week he gets a special treat of his choice (within reason).

Hope it works!
