NSR: About Jeff

Today I want to talk a little about a friend from church. His name is Jeff and he has Non-Hodgkins (Grey Zone) Lymphoma cancer. He just started a blog Goodman Shoes about his cancer. Please pray for him as he goes through this trial. Today he is on his 4th chemo and really appreciate it if you'll pray for him.

Christmas Tree Ornament Tutorial

1" x 4-1/2" designer paper
1-1/4" x 5-1/2" designer paper
1-1/2" x 6-1/2" designer paper
1-3/4" x 7-1/2" designer paper
2" x 8-1/2" designer paper
4-1/2" x 6" Gumball Green card stock
Crumb Cake scrap card stock
8" linen thread
Trimmer with a scoring blade
or Simply Scored Scoring Tool for scoring
hot glue gun

 1. Score all the designer paper pieces at every 1/4" as shown in the photo. Lines drawn in in the photo is for instruction purpose only.

 2. Accordion fold the designer paper pieces. Make sure the ends of the designer paper pieces are facing down. Set these aside.

3. Use a pencil and mark 2 lines at 2-1/8" and 2-3/8" on the short side of the card stock.

4. Draw 2 lines as shown in photo. This is the tree base.

5. Cut off the sides.

6. Draw curve lines on the tree base. Starting from the bottom draw a line about 1-5/8" from the bottom edge. Draw the other 4 lines decreasing 1/4" measurement. The lines doesn't need to be perfect. They will be cover up by the designer papers.

7. Starting at the bottom line first and add hot glue to it.

 8. Adhere the 2" x 8-1/2" designer paper to the line.

9. Adhere the rest of the designer paper pieces to the tree base.

 10. Adhere a scrap piece of 1" x 3" Crumb Cake card stock for the tree trunk from the back.

11. Thread a linen thread through the button holes and tie a knot.

 12. Turn to the back of the button and add hot glue to the centre of the button.

 13. Adhere the button to the top of the tree with hot glue. Embellish the tree. This tree is flat on the back and it shows the Gumball Green card stock.

optional: You can make another set of the designer paper pieces and add it to the back of the tree to hide the back.

You're done! Enjoy making the tree. I love to hear from you and if you make it I love to see it too.

Birthday Treat Bag Tags

Good Friday everyone! I'm so glad it is Friday. I'm spending a night in Washington at a Couples' Retreat with my husband today. I look forward to this time to be with my husband every year. No kids around just the two of us.

I put together little treat bags filled with yummy for my 2 daughters for their birthday. One birthday yesterday and one birthday today. They are 4 years apart minus a day. This is just a little special treat I made for them to let them know how much I love them. Of course they get other things too for their birthday.

I made 2 tags using the Labels Collection Framelits and the Apothecary stamp set. Made 2 little roses and put them onto the tags. Very simple thing to make.

Thank you for visiting me today! Have a wonderful weekend!

Little Princess Invitations

Hello, everyone! Hope you are having a great week so far. This week went by so fast. My two daughters made these invitations for their birthday party this month. They stamped, colour the pictures and put the invites together all by themselves. They were ecstatic that they got to stamp. They do have their own stamps and ink to play with but they prefer my stamping toys.

They used the Little Princess stamp set and the Hugs and Wishes stamp set to make their invites. I think they did a wonderful job making the invites.

Thank you foe stopping by!

Pink Christmas

Hello, stampers! What a week! I'm happy I got a lot housework done today. It usually takes me a couple of days to finish everything and the week starts over again. But today I got a lot done, made some cards and work my the 12 Days of Christmas Projects. It'll be fun. If you have not subscribe to my blog yet you should really do so. You'll receive FREE tutorials of the12 projects. You can't go wrong with free stuff.

I was cleaning (I'm always cleaning) yesterday and found these poinsettia all done up but not onto cards so I made some cards with it. I think these were left overs from the Ladies' Christmas Tea a few years ago. Can't remember which year. The cards are not in the traditional Christmas colours but it still looks nice. The beads on the poinsettia was adhere with Crystal Effects. Very strong stuff!

Thank you for stopping by!
