If The Shoe Fits

Hello, my friends!  Do you LOVE this witches shoe as I do?  I have had this pattern for years and years.  I never get tired of using it.  I especially love using it during Holloween.  However, you can make these shoes for many different occasions by simply changing the paper that you use.

I can see Dorthory’s shoe from the Wizard of OZ.  I can see a girlfriend’s high heel for a birthday or a wedding shower.  If the shoe fits?  Right?

Here is the link to the pattern.https://www.skiptomylou.org/2008/10/28/paper-witch-shoes/

Now all you have to do is cut down your designer series paper to 8-1/2 X 11 and place it in your printer.  Then print the pattern onto your designer series paper and you’re ready to create.  Cut out the pattern using your snips.  Score on all of the dotted lines and lastly add tear and tape to the tabs.  Fold on all score lines and put the shoe together.

To embellish my shoe I used Stampin’ Up! black satin ribbon for my bow and the medium daisy punch with Gorgeous Grape cardstock to make the flower.  Lastly, I embellished the flower with a Clear Faceted Gem.  That is it!  It is really simple.

Have fun with this, my friends.  Let me know if you need any product or if you have questions.

September’s Paper Pumpkin

Happy Fall Y’all,

My Paper Pumpkin kit arrived yesterday.  I immediately sat down and opened it up. I was so excited, I could not wait to see how cute this months kit was going to be.  I’m not disappointed, this kit is eveything I hoped it would be.

As usual I did not follow the instruction pamplet that comes with the kit.  Instead, I created an alternative project to share with YOU.

These little gable boxes are so cute that I can’t give them away.  Is that bad?  I don’t think its to bad since the kiddo’s who visit us on Holloween will receive one of those super cute coffin boxes that Stampin’ Up! currently carries in the Holiday catalog.

Because I love holiday decor I made this project.  These little boxes will add to my collection of Holloween decorations.  Every year Stampin’ Up! comes up with the cutest items for each holiday, collecting them year after year has paid off.  I have a good little collection.

Using the Hand-Lettered Prose Dies I spelled out happy holloween ( these dies are sold seperately).  Then I added each letters to alternating colored tags that come in the kit.  When I was done I added the lettered tags to the boxes.  I made sure to alternate the pattern boxes just to add to the whimsy.  Next I embellished the boxes with the webs, skelton hands and Mr. Bones, as I call him. The embellishments are set into place using those super cute black clothes pins.

After Holloween when I put these boxes away I can remove the embellishments store them inside of the boxes and keep everything safe from damage.

This kit was so easy to use that I actually sat on the couch and made this complete project in about an hour while watching Doctor Phil, LOL!

 

If you like what you see here, let’s talk about the next two months.  In October the kit will include everything that you need to make 10 Christmas Cards with envelope and the November kit will contain everything you need to make 24 Christmas gift tags.  Getting these kits is such a great way to get your Christmas creating done.  And having everything at your fingertips is priceless.

Good Morning Magnolia

Good morning!!!! Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting.

Today I’m sharing a project that I’ve been dreaming about for a really long time.  It involves vintage luggage, chalk paint and the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.

I have a few pieces of vintage luggage that I’ve been wanting to dress up.  I took this piece and decided to transform it.

Yesterday I painted my luggage white using Annie Sloan chalk paint.  This morning I grabbed the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp set and our black ink and stamped away.  I colored the flowers in using Stampin Blends.  Then I sponged all over the place using soft suede and petal pink ink.  Lastly, I stamped gray polka dots randomly using the eraser of a pencil and Smokey Slate ink.

I think this piece is going to look great in our guest room, it wil fit in with a travel theme.

After stamping the handle I added a bow.

Here is a close-up.  I think you need to visit me and take a look in person.  Stamped luggage can be a sweet addition to your home decor.

Thanks again for spending part of your day with me, I appreciate you!

Facebook Live Bath and Body Works Packaging replay

Thank you to all, I’m glad you enjoyed Sunday night’s Facebook Live.  Many have asked for the written dimensions of the lotion holder so here it is.

You will need:

1 – 12 x 12 piece of Very Vanilla or Whisper White  cardstock

1- 8-12 x 11 piece of Verry Vanilla or Whisper White  card stock

For the box that goes around your  8 oz bottle of lotion cut your 12 x 12 piece of cardstock down to 3-1/2 x 12 ( you can make 3 from 1 sheet).  Lay your cardstock landscape and score at 5-1/4 and 6-3/4.  Burnish your score lines using your bone folder.  Now set your lotion into the holder to make sure it fits well between the score lines.

For the insert and the top of the holder: Cut two pieces of card stock from your 8-1/2 X 11 sheet down to 3-1/2 x 2-1/2. Lay your cardstock portrait style and score 1/2″ on both sides.  Place your number 5 oval die in the middle ( portrait style) of the score lines and cut out both ovals all at once.

Burnish your score lines and add the tear and tape to all four tabs

Embellish the front of the box as desired.  Make sure you stamp everything onto the box prior to assembly.

Add the insert and the top to the box.  Work slowly and make sure everything is lined up.  Add your lotion and stand back and give yourself a round of applause!!!!

Have fun and let me know if you need any other assistance.

Do Your Heart A Favor part 2

Hello and happy Friday!

Yesterday’s open house was a GREAT TIME!  So many came and seemed to enjoy themselves.  We enjoyed ourselves so much that I closed a little late.  Some times time just flies by and suddenly you look up at the clock and ooops, it’s time to go.  Well, that is what happened last night, but it was worth every minute.

My customers LOVE LOVE LOVED the make and take.  I taught each one how to make this cute heart favor.  However, I didn’t give out written measurements just because I promised I would give instructions today on this post.  So here we go.

  1.  You will need a piece of designer series paper cut at 3-15/16 (which is one line under 4″ on your trimmer) X 5-14/16 (which is two lines under 6′ on your trimmer)

Now for the scoring.

With your dsp laying on your paper trimmer portrait style place the left end of the dsp on the 3-1/2 mark and score lightly.

Next, slide the end of the dsp to the 1-3/4 mark and lightly score

Now holding your dsp portrait style simply fold it in half.

Burnish all of your score lines and then open it up flat.  Next, you will fold over the smallest scoreline

The next step is to add Multipurpose glue to that thin tab.  Once you have the glue on the tab, fold the dsp closed at the center score line.

You are ready to create the rounded heart humps.  Using a 1-3/4” circle punch or die cut out a circle.  Place that circle on one end of your dsp tube and draw a half circle.  Do that to both ends.

After drawing the half circles cut them out using your snips.

Your tube will now look like the image below

Turn your tube so that you are looking at the glued seam and press in lightly.  The center score line will give in and the two ends will fold up towards each other to make your heart shape.

Your heart shape should be formed like in the picture below.  Gently pinch the bottom.

Our next task is to make the heart stand up on its own.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Choose a front and back to your heart.  Working with the back of the heart pinch the bottom and fold the tip back towards the seam on the side.  Once you have folded it back pinch the score light tightly.  Then fold it to the other side and pinch the scoreline tightly again.

Open your heart back up and you will notice a V shape at the bottom.  Push in on the center score line and the two other score lines will go in also.

In the picture below I’m showing you where to place the tear and tape.  Burnish the tape well and pull off the tapes protective paper.  Gently push the heart pieces together.

Place your heart on your table leaning it on the back V that you made and it will stand on its own.  If it does not stand, just keep gently pressing on it until it molds and stands alone.

Embellish as desired.  I use the stitched Shapes and the Layering Circle Dies for the white and the Rococo Rose circles.  The ribbon is the 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Rococo Rose Linen Ribbon.  The sentiment is from the stamp set  Country Home.  Lastly, I cut a little flower from a scrap of dsp and layered that onto the white circle.

I know these instructions seem lengthy but the project is really pretty easy.  If you need my help, let me know.
