Happy Thanksgiving to all my US reader!

Here is how it looks like inside.

Mini Thank You Cards

I made these four mini Thank You cards awhile ago. There was a matching card holder that came with it but my lovely 2 years old did something to it. It would have been a nice little gift to give away but I don't have this DSP anymore. I used the left over DSP to make these 3"x4" cards. I used the Much Appreciated and To Have and To Hold stamp sets.

Have a great day and thanks for visiting! It is raining real hard here as I'm writing this.

Little Gift Box

Isn't this gift box the cutest? I got the instruction here. I filled the small cello bag with chocolate covered almonds, tie it off with 5/8" grosgrain ribbon with a tag that said "for you".

Here is the side view of the box. I used my scallop edge punch to punch the side pieces.

Here is the back view. I stamped something I didn't like so I covered it with DSP and chocolate chip card stock.

Thanks for stopping by!

Star Ornaments

These stars a fun to make and very easy. I purchase the Star Bright DSP Ornaments kit from the Holiday Mini Catalogue. They are die cut so it was easy and fast for creating. More time for you to do other things like make a card. I made mine 3D. I used 2 Way Glue to glue the tips together. I also made some paper globes but forgot to take a picture of them. I'll post them when I get to it.

I Will Not Misplace a Stamp Again!

Do you have tons and tons of stamps and some of them are almost the same? I do. Especially snowflake stamps. I just love snowflakes. I have about almost every set that SU sells and they can be confusing as to which stamp goes back to which set when using all different snowflakes to make cards. So I found a way to keep track of my stamps. This really helped me when I do classes and workshops. Some of my customers like to help cleaning up and this idea shows them which stamps goes to which set without asking me.

This picture shows two of the same sheet of the stamp adhesive labels. The top one is the original and the bottom one is the copy one. Before I put the labels onto the wood, I make a copy of that label sheet. Then I cut the copy one to fit in the stamp box. Now I can put the original labels onto my wood.

Here is how it looks like in the stamp storage box. Now I know if I'm missing/misplace a stamp from that set.

Hope this idea help you to be more organize with your stamp sets.

Happy Stamping!

Birthday Invites

I made this invitation for Faith's and Hope's birthday party this Saturday. I used the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set to make this invitation. I put Dazzling Diamonds on the frosting of the cupcakes and they looked so pretty IRL. The sentiment is from the Please Come stamp set. I cut a sheet of card stock into quarters for these invitations. I stamped the back info with the Welcome, Little One stamp set.

I pray that it will be a good weather so the kids can go outside to play on the playground.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

CASED Create-a-Calendar

I CASED the calendar front and back page from Jen Tink. She is so creative. The inside pages are all my own creations. I used mat board for the stand which made it sturdier. I find the calendar doesn't stand as well with just card stock. Too flimsy. I'm hoping to do a class on this calendar in December.

Side view of the calendar.

SCS Colour Challenge 191

Here is my take on the SCS Tuesday Colour Challenge. I love all this colour combo! they are so pretty together.

I used the Eastern Bloom stamp set for main image and Pocket Silhouette stamp set for the sentiment. I cut two circles using the Coluzzle Cutting system and pierce the Riding Hood Red circle one. The blossom branch was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink onto Whisper White cs then in Pink Pirouette ink onto another WW cs. I cut the flowers out and adhere them with Two Way glue. Yes, I did cut every single flowers out. It was a lot of work but very worth it. It made the flowers stand out more. The two big flowers was stamped, cut out and adhere with dimensional. The rest of the card is self explanatory.

Have a great day and thanks for looking!

Dazzling Couple

You like my tittle? I don't know about the couple being dazzling but I put dazzling diamonds onto the image. It it so pretty in person. I hope you can see the dazzling diamonds. Click on the photo to enlarge.

I did the scallop square using the scallop edge punch. I love this new punch! I cut a 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" piece of card stock and then use the scallop edge punch and punch around the cs. It is really quite easy.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
