Hostess Appreciation Projects

I've invited my hostesses over for dinner tomorrow night and we're going to make these projects:
Actually, we're only making the card and the pillow box.  The scrapbook page is an example of all the great things you can do with our marvelous stamp sets!  I hope they like them. 

Ingredients: Hello Again stamp set, retro remix wheel, real red, old olive, pumpkin pie, kraft cardstock and ink, old olive 1/4 grosgrain ribbon, big shot, curly label Bigz XL die, pillow box die, scalloped border punch, scalloped square punch, spiral punch, corner punch, tag punch, 1" circle punch, 1/2" circle punch, stampin dimensionals, paper snips

The scalloped edge on the tag was done with the scalloped square punch.  the scalloped square is just slightly larger, so I trimmed it to fit.  Cute huh?
The scrapbook page is 81/2 x 8 1/2.  The photo mount is 4x5. Got questions...just ask!

This stamp set Hello Again is available FREE right now with a $50 purchase. 
Check out the Sale-A-Bration catalog! and then go shopping ONLINE at my store.

Well, this is neat...what on earth made the formatting go back to "left" is beyond me...nice blogger.

The next hostess appreciation dinner will be in August 2010, so BE A HOSTESS before then!!! :-)
Thanks for stopping by!

February 20th Birthday Card Class in Sidney, NE

Come and join me this Saturday, February 20th in Sidney, NE for a birthday card classe.  Fee is $15.  We will be making 10 cards, 2 each of 5 designs. Please contact me for additional details. Here are the cards we'll be making...
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink (5 1/2 x 4 1/4, 8 x 4 1/4-score this piece at 4" and 6"), Whisper White (3 3/4 x 5, 1 3/8 x 3 3/4), and Close to Cocoa (5 1/4 x 4, 4 x 2-punch one long edge with scalloped edge punch)
Pretty in pink 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon, stampin dimensionals, Stampin Write markers: creamy caramel, rose red, gable green, chocolate chip, pink passion.
Stamp sets: Beary Best Friends, Beary Nice Wishes
Ink:  Chocolate Chip.

Fisherman's vest card uses Chocolate Chip and Close to Cocoa Cardstock, large tag and tag punch, large oval punch, black stampin write marker, stampin sponges, chocolate chip ink. Take a 8 1/2 piece of chocolate chip cardstock and score at 2 1/8 and again at 6 3/8, bend back the collar, punch out the arm holes and neck hole with the large oval punch.  after punching out the pockets with the 2 sizes of tag punches, fold back 1/4 inch on all flat ends then decorate with stiching lines and sponging with chocolate chip ink.  Add brads for the buttons.  I'll add a 4x4 piece of very vanilla to the inside with my greeting when I send it.  I will also probably decorate the pockets with some of my fishing stickers.  Remember when you bought stickers for EVERYTHING once upon a time?
This darling card features the butterfly embosslit found in the mini occasions 2010 catalog. Rich razzleberry, old olive, mambo melon card stock, old olive and rich razzleberry ink, the Big Shot, Top Note die, and rich razzleberry polkadot ribbon.  Stamp sets: Inspired by Nature and All Holidays.

Isn't this frog too cute!  I saw him on the new Stampin Up demonstrator only share site.  He was posted by Kellie Anyn Paxton.  I used Gable green paper and ink(sponging).  The punches used were wide oval punch for the head and body.  The legs were made with the large oval punch, feet with the boho flowers punch.  The belly was made with the small oval punch.  The eyes were made with the 1", 3/4" and 1/2" circle punches.  The background was stamped with Inspired by nature in close to cocoa ink that was stamped off first.  The stump was hand cut and decorated with black marker and sponging in chocolate chip.

This beauty was also cased from stampinconnection, but as always, altered just a bit.  I used the vintage vogue set to stamp the flowers in crushed curry ink and soft suede using the rock n roll technique and then cut them out.  You gotta get the paper snips for your detailed cutting if you don't have them already.  They're the best!  The "patterend paper" was created by rolling the very vintage roller stamp in crushed curry then using a sponge inked with the same, just smoosh ink all over the stamped image till you get the desired effect.  The polka dot panel was made with the new polka dot embossing folder from the Occasions Mini Catalog 2010.  I LOVE the embossing folders...Love them!!!

Thanks for visiting!

Shelly and My Digital Studio

I finally got to play with My Digital Studio a little. Shelly, my aunt, posted some photos up on Facebook and asked me if I wanted to scrapbook them. She and her husband had a lovely hike in the Brown County State Park in Nashville, IN after a beautiful snow fall.  Looks a little cold for hiking to me, but they're used to winter.
Don't you just LOVE that swirly flowery boder? This was fun. I'd love to know what you think. 
Thanks for stopping by!
