Current and NEW

Hi ladies,  the NEW HOLIDAY catalogs have arrived.  All you have to do is contact me if you want one.

 

Tonight I made this cute little notebook by combining the current product with NEW product.  I love the fact that so many of the products in the new holiday catalog can be used all year long.  The current product that I used tonight is the Daisy punch, the trio punch, the 1/2″ circle punch, Basic Black cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Daffodil Delight cardstock, liquid glue, Memento black ink, paper trimmer, snips, and dimensionals.

The NEW product that I used is the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine ( for the stem and leaves) and the Buffalo Check background stamp to make the front and back cover of this notebook. This Buffalo Check Background is one of my favorite things in this catalog.  There are so many fantastic items in this catalog you just need to see for yourself.

I wish I had more little notebooks.  Go figure that I only had one left.  I feel like making these little books and seeing what they would look like with different colored flowers.  I bet real red would be darling.   How about our new in-colors?  Oh boy sounds like I need to make a Walmart run.

Have a great evening! And thanks for stopping by.

August Color Fusers Blog Hop

Hi there!  Thank you for hopping over to the color fusers blog hop today, we love having each and everyone one of you.  This month we are sharing projects that you can make using these five new and fun to use colors.  These colors are very bright and when you group them together they bring life to each other.

Isn’t this new stamp set ” Love You To Pieces” darling?  Pairing this set with these colors works perfectly.  I honestly made these project very quickly because everything just came together nicely.

I started out by cutting out the individual puzzle pieces. I cut one of each color.   Then I stacked them onto each other using dimensionals.  I liked them stacked.  I also like one facing one way and the next piece facing the other.  The cluster of puzzle pieces is a cute focal point.

Because the cluster needed a base I used the large puzzle thinlit to create a base.  I use whisper white cardstock for that and then backed the white puzzle with basic black cardstock.    The third thing I did was stamp the sentiment.  Because the main puzzle was backed in black I also mounted the sentiment onto basic black cardstock.

Next, I thought about how I would lay everything out.  I cut the card base from Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  Then, I cut a layering piece of the same color and embossed it using the Striped Scallops folder and the Big Shot.  Once my card base and layering piece were together I just built the card.  I put the big white puzzle down, then the cluster of pieces and lastly the sentiment.  The sentiment is lifted too.

The puzzle pieces in this set are just so darn cute.  The pieces are such a great size and you can use them in so many ways.  On this card, each puzzle piece was brushed with Wink of Stella.  The Wink of Stela made each piece sparkle and that stepped up the look.  For just a bit more bling I added a snippet of Silver Mini Sequin Trim.

After making the card I started thinking about a goodie box.  I grabbed one of our clear acrylic boxes and started to design.  I was thinking that the heart could be used for Valentines.  So I started my project with that in mind.

Oh, my my, what a cute box.  I’m thinking Candy Kisses would fill this box nicely.  To start I just punched a small hole in the lid of the box and slid a striped stick into the hole.  I want the stick to stand up straight so I added a mini glue dot to the bottom and pressed it down.  Now it stands straight and firm.  With the stick secured I stamped and cut out the heart then mounted it onto a scalloped square.  I added liquid glue to the stick, let it get tacky and then stuck the sentiment on.  I wanted a cute bow to dress everything up so I used the White Polka Dot Ribbon.  This ribbon is so stinkin cute.  I find that it can be whimsical or elegant, it just depends on the project you add it to.  Lastly, I added a puzzle piece to each side of the box. I used glue dots to secure them.

Triangle Treat Boxes

Hello and welcome back to my blog.  I’ve been back from the annual Stampin’ Up! Incentive trip for 3 days and it just feels like there is not enough time in the day to do all the things I want to do.  Today I made this MILLY THE MOUSE triangle box.  I love the way she turned out so I just had to share her with you.

I got the idea and instructions from Steffi Helmschroff.  Steffi is a Stampin Up Demonstrator from Germany.  She is an amazing demonstrator and a wonderful person.  Steffi and her husband Frank were assigned dinner seats with us so that is how we met.  Steffi does not speak English and I don’t speak German so her husband Frank interpreted for us.  Frank is a sweetheart too, we really enjoyed meeting both of them.  Steffi and I exchange information so we can stay in contact.

Stefi has a YouTube Channel, so I checked it out.  I fell in love with this watermelon box that she made.  Her video is in German, but somehow, I figured it out.   Isn’t it cute?  Mine is slightly different than hers because the punch that she used to make the watermelon seeds is discontinued now and I didn’t have the stamp set she used for her sentiment.  But other than that I copied her idea.

 

Once I knew how to make the box, I started to think about other things I could make that in the shape of a triangle.  The first thing that came to mind was Candy Corn.  Halloween is coming up ( yes I know time flys) and we could use another cute goodie box so I made this one.

Notice that it is the same layout as the watermelon just made for a different occasion.

Well, what else can I make?  How about a mouse?  MEET MILLY the mouse.  Notice her tail, she makes me happy.

 

 

Here are all three boxes together.  Milly is bigger than the other two.  As long as you start with a square piece of cardstock you can make them any size.

 

The watermelon and candy corn were made from Whisper White cardstock and colored with the sponge rollers and ink.  On the watermelon, I used Garden Green and Real Red.  For the candy corn, I used Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie.  For the seeds on the watermelon, I used the little bits of cardstock that drop from the Hold Onto Hope Cross thinlit.

The product used to make Milly the Mouse are listed below.
