Take a Sip!

I'm sure nobody else does this.... but I bought this wheel when it first came out in the Stampin' Up! catalog and finally got around to making cards with it last weekend!!  aaaah!!

FEATURED ITEM: TAKE A SIP WHEEL, item 120323

Take a sip 4x4

These are more customer thank you cards for Sale a Bration orders.

Take a sip cards

Take a sip tag

Did you catch this fun little thing I did with the tag?

I used a scrap of Natural Ivory cardstock, ran it through the Big Shot with the new Framed Tulips Embossing folder (item 121809, pg 28 occasions mini catalog), then use the Decorative label punch (item 120907, pg 30 occasions mini catalog) and just punched part of the punch.. fun shape.. right?  That gives it the flat sides and flat bottom.

I also punched it out using the whole punched image on the tags in the cards above.

Scrapbook Class at CCCHS

Some of you will remember the iCraft Class I taught at Contra Costa Christian High School 2 years ago... my son was a Senior there then and I had a great time creating stamped crafts with some of the HS girls.

This week I am back at CCCHS to scrapbook with 10 lovely HS girls!!  They are the best!!  I showed them several of my scrapbooking creations, including several projects done in My Digital Studio. Many of them were very curious to learn more about MDS and how to purchase it, so here is the link, girls. :)

I am having a blast and wanted to show you some of the projects we are creating!

  DSC06377 DSC06378
So far we have made 2 scrapbooks.. I took a huge bin of retired designer paper and cardstock and lots of fun embellishments for them to select from.

I will be putting more details, close-ups, directions, etc., for our projects on my blog next week.

Beveled Windowpane Necklace - more info

Necklace box I made one of the Beveled Windowpane necklaces for my downline Cindee who was so kind to take swaps to Leadership for me, since I could not attend... and several of you have asked for more info on how to make these.. so here are a few more tips for you...

ScreenHunter_07 Jan. 08 21.09

Cindee front<< NECKLACE I MADE FOR CINDEE

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MY WINDOWPANE NECKLACE:

1.  you will notice 3 sizes of Windowpanes in the package, I used the largest one for these necklaces.

2. measure the size of the windowpane you are using and cut your cardstock or DSP to that size

3. stamp or decorate your piece of cardstock as desired.

4. put a small amt of snail at the very top and bottom of the cardstock/dsp and adhere it to the back of the windowpane to hold it in place while you get the ribbon on

5. place this on the cutting mat from the Mat Pack, paper side down/window pane side up, and use the Craft knife to cut slits in the cardstock, (you will place your knife in the slots in the plastic)

6. Thread your ribbon through the slots and to the back, securing with sticky strip, or snail, or glue dots or Crystal Effects. (I used crystal effects)

7.  add a loop of ribbon to the top, using your choice of adhesive (I used Crystal Effects).

8. if desired cut another piece of DSP or carstock to attach to the back to cover the ribbons (see photo in this post for a back view).

9. string a length of ribbon through the loop for your necklace

10. embellish with your choice of Key and Crown Trinkets, brads, flowers, etc.

wear and enjoy!

Upsy Daisies Decor Elements

 
I know... call me chicken.. but I have not wanted to apply the Stampin' Up! Decor Elements to our walls... we have a ton of artwork in our home (all painted by my dad), so I've been using Decor Elements on "things", not walls.

Welcome 1


For this 12x16 wall decor piece, I used the UPSY DAISIES DECOR ELEMENTS pieces in So Saffron and Rose Red. I layered the Saffron one over the Red one. 

Then I used my STAMPIN' UP BIG SHOT with the SERIF ESSENTIALS ALPHABET DIE (#113464) and the Chocolate Decor Elements Vinyl Sheets (#11437) to cut out the alphabet letters  to spell WELCOME.

  Welcome 2

Rather than putting this onto the wall, I put it on a 12x16 piece of Artist Board.. you can find this at most hobby or craft or art supply stores.  This way I can move it around, take it to Luv 2 Stamp Group meetings, workshops, etc.  It is VERY sturdy, it is NOT canvas on stretcher boards.. it's a nice hard surface PERFECT for decorating with Decor Elements pieces.... now... what pieces should I buy next..

Oh Garden.. how I've missed you!

I've really missed being in my garden.. I didn't get out there much after my surgery in Oct., and then we've had a TON of rain... but I spent some time in my garden on the weekend with the gorgeous weather.. no jacket required! .. I finally got my roses pruned and took some photos of what was blooming...

Alstromeria 1

I LOVE my Alstromeria plants.. I have 2 of them that thrive all year.. they bloom 365 days a year! They seem like a tropical type plant and we've had temps in the low 30's over the past couple weeks (I KNOW!!! gasp!).. but they still keep on bloomin' !!

Alstromeria 2

I still had 1/2 a dozen roses stil blooming, even though I needed to prune them... don't they know it's JANUARY ?????

Roses jan 2011

My camellias are starting to bloom.. they usually bloom between New Years and Valentine's day..

Camellia 1

Isn't God's handiwork just amazing? I mean who else could design a flower like this!?

Camellia 2

Camellia 3

Yep.. Fall finally came... IN JANUARY!!

Fall leaves jan 2011
i LOVE Gardening in my SLOGGERS... thanks again Jan.. they rock and so do you!

Sloggers
