Stampin' Up! has finally caught on...

If you can believe it or not Stampin' Up! has finally caught on to the clear stamp block movement. They will be releasing their new line of stamps in January along with the acrylic blocks. They will still be rubber stamps but you will be able to use the clear blocks which will make it easier for positioning the stamps to where you want them on your design. Go check this link HERE for a great video tutorial and some more explanation on the new release coming in JANUARY!

Birthday invite and a cute Paper Backpack!

This was what my darling daughter wanted on for her birthday invites a couple weeks ago. She decided on the snowman from the new Snowfriends cartridge from Provocraft. We cut her all out and then added some sparkle fibers to the top of her hat for fun. She then added hand drawn snowflakes all by herself.This was a fun backpack I made up for the craft fair, actually I made 4 of them. They are fun for the holiday and easily hold a gift card or other little goodies :)

Here is another "Tote-ally Awesome" tote from Inking Idaho's blog. If you click on the name then look down the right side of her blog its one of the tutorials for sale. The paper is Stampin Up! and the owl's are from the Storybook cartridge.I added some of the blue bird paper to the inside of a pen for a great touch on the project.

Close to My Heart Birthday card kit

This was a Close to My Heart kit I got free a couple months ago. I decided I needed to use it, here are the finished cards. This kit included, a stamp set, cards and envelopes, 2 sheets of 3 different pattern papers and 1 sheet each of 3 different colors of cardstock, 2 small ink pads, all the brads and ribbons that you see. All I had to do was cut, stamp, and put them together.

Craft Fair Goodies

After seeing something similar on Inking Idaho's blog, I had to copy her again. I thought it was a great idea to have a little something sweet to give away so I made these up real quick. I used a Stampin Up set called "Circle of Friendship" and of course my Cricut. Mini Monograms scalloped circle and regular circle cut at 1 3/4. This picture is bad but I tried...

Stocking Gift Card/Money Holders

Made this fun little stocking with the new seasonal cartridge from Provocraft called "Very Merry Tags" cut it at 7 1/4 so it was big enough for the card to fit in but sadly it wont fit in an A2 envelope. Papers used are Die Cuts With a View the Christmas Glitter Stack from 08 and then cardstock in Red #1. I also cut another "back" stocking out of white cardstock so that's what the GC slides down between. (cut 3 total, 1 white back, 1 glitter paper middle, 1 red top) hand stitched with a white gel pen around the edge and added some fun snowflake ribbon. You could use this as an ornament.
With the GC all the way down...This one is a money holder cut from Christmas Cheer at 7, the $$ slides down between the green top part and the red back part.
