Picture Clip

This is just an altered jumbo binder clip. I used purple paper to cover the metal clip the I wrapped ribbon on each side. Next I stamped the image and punched it out using my scallop punch. The stamp set had a snowflake in the middle so I just didn't ink it and added the yellow dot to look like sun. My mom gave me this idea when she used it on her flip flop photo album. The words say Celebrate the Season and I think it's fitting for a cute summer pic! The picture is of me, my sisters, and my mom swimming at moms.

Super Cute Baby Gift

This is a super cute little gift bag I made for the soon to be newest addition to our extended family! My sister is due in two weeks and I'm acutally planning ahead!! The nursery is decorated in pink and brown and has lots of polka-dots. So I decided to make a bag that would match!! I used pink CS and then used my fiskars embossing plate to give the background nice texture. Next I took a brown band of paper and stamped the dots with versamark and then heat and stick powder then I adhered the pink flocking. (that's the fun fuzzy stuff) I think next time I use flocking I'll just use a glue pen to make sure the stuff sticks were I want it!! So I glued that to the bag and decided to add the teddy bear I colored it in using a brown crayola and then blending the color around using my blender pen dipped in goo gone (LOVIN' that technique!). I decided to add the little tag It's a girl using my new SU punch. Lastly, since I didn't have any brown tissue paper. I just stamped the brown dots onto white tissue paper. I think it all ties together nicely. Obviously the picture does not do it justice!!

Post-It Note Holder

This is such a quick and easy project!! I just covered a chipboard coaster (you could even use the free coasters from restraunts) with some cute paper. Then I took a post-it note pad and clipped it to the top using a medium sized binder clip. Next I stamped the quote and glued it on. I even make matching RSVP pens (from Wally World) and give them away as quick gifts!

Tommy's Bday card

Made my nephew's bday card today (only a couple weeks late!!) I tried to do a simple little boy card. I stamped the worm first in green then stamped over the image in versamark then put heat and stick powder on it. Heated it with the embossing gun (from underneath to prevent flyaway) and then covered it with green flocking I love creating kids cards that have fun texture. So Tommy has a fuzzy green googly eyed bug to touch on this one!! I also embossed the wording wiht green embossing powder. The worms were stamped with green galore all over the background cardstock! Hope he likes it!! (the ribbon is the $1 ribbon at Michaels --gotta love that store!!)

Late Night Decorating

Okay so it's almost 1am on Friday night I spent most of the evening cleaning and went out to pick some fresh flowers for my table. After putting my dd to bed and finishing odds and ends I decided the vase needed to be a little more cheerful. Since I have extra Frap bottles I thought that would be the perfect vase to spiffy up! So here's what I came up with! I just covered the bottle with random paper and used the Doodle This SU stamp. I stamped the image twice and then colored them in using crayons and goo gone (hoping to explain this tech in more detail tomorrow) Then cut them out stuck em together and added the jewel in the center for fun. I also pinched the petals to give it more dimension.
