3D Tuck Bag & Snowman

Too cute! I bought this cute little tuck bag and cut with my Silhouette! The one in front is the size it comes in but I enlarged it for the one in the back (not SU paper).

I used:
All Is Calm Specialty Designer Paper 135823
All Is Calm Snowflake 137383
Linen Thread 104199
Tree Punch 135859

The colors that match the Designer Paper: Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon, Pear Pizzazz, Simply Slate & Whisper White. Great for a small gift.

Can't let this pass! It is the best snowman - no MESS or MELTING! My grandkids will love it!

Until next time!

Cookie Monster

Another character! Who doesn't love Cookie Monster! I am still trying to figure out a nice topping for him.

Thanks for stopping by! Now is the time for a really busy season to get going in full swing. I still have lots of gifts to make and wrap. Time is running out...

Snowman Candle

Love these skinny candles and it makes the perfect snowman! Was too cute to pass up. Hope you are enjoying the vinyl creations.

This is the first vinyl floating ornament I have made. It was fun but tedious! The picture is not the best and I still can't figure out how to get these tiny styro balls in the ornament for the snow effect. Too much static!

It's Olaf and it says 'some people are worth melting for!'

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time!

Lovin' these character wine glasses (can't think of a better use!) Anyway... here's Rudolph. I used SU Cardstock for the antlers and mini glue dots to adhere them to the glass and believe it or not Walmart had brown glitter.
I used Modge Podge inside the glass to adhere the glitter. They are such fun projects.

Until next time!

Today... (Saturday)

Had a class today to make two ornaments. It was fun but lots of folding!

These are dressed up a bit from the ones we made today but great for practice and a sample!

The Grinch

My first order was for two Grinch glasses! They are so cute. I could not find the plastic ones so these are glass but the neat thing, they are tinted green. Perfect for a Grinch...

Until next time!

Craft Project Central

I subscribed to this month's project done by Regina! The directions were so easy to follow and it turned out so great!

Let’s face it . . . not every stamper is a scrapbooker, but we all have dates, events, activities, milestones, etc. that we’d like to record and remember. This Monthly Memories Album, which can stand on its own, is comprised of pockets—one for each month—with at least one card in each pocket to record (with journaling and/or photos) special events. Of course, photos and mementos can be included or attached to the front (and/or back) of each pocket. The whole family can be involved recording a memory about something special for each month! The handy gift bag features a really neat way to make sure the card doesn’t get lost or separated from the gift and, of course, there’s a gift box for the album! This is an especially perfect gift for a New Year’s party hostess, or host your own party and give this ensemble to each of your guests! (Regina's description)

Until next time!

Who doesn't love this cute little snowman from Frozen! This is my second attempt to layer vinyl and I love

I didn't have all the vinyl colors so I used the Stampin Up Blendabilities to color the nose, twigs, mouth & buttons. Works wonders!

Thanks for stopping by and I promise I am working on some 'stampin' projects to share soon.

Until next time!

Late Night Stampers December Challenge

WOW what a quick month November turned out to be!

Now it's that time of year! Christmas time is coming. This month, December's Challenge is to create something with a Christmas theme... cards, scrapbook pages, gift items - etc. Would love to see what you come up with...

Post your creations here!

To create this simple Christmas card I used the Ornamental Pine (135107) Stamp Set which I really love. It is so self-contained. It has the stamps for the front as well as a sentiment for inside the card! What possibilities!

Come on gals, play along.

Until next time!

Monograms and more...

OK I will admit I have neglected my stamping for the last week BUT I do plan on some new stuff after Thanksgiving.

These are recycled (love to recycle) CD Cases with the top put on backwards. I sprayed the backside with Frost (Rustoleum) and then monogrammed them using vinyl.

This is a teacher gift for my grandson's 4K teacher!

This glass cutting board is from $-Tree! Love that store too!

 They were such fun to create! Love my Silhouette!

Don't forget to take advantage of the Extravaganza at Stampin' Up. Either order OnLine (use Hostess Code: 6PFK2DM7) or email me by Saturday night and I will order for you!

Until next time!

Santa Plates

I recently joined a FaceBook group - Silhouette for Beginners. Well don't let the name fool you, they are MASTERS not necessarily beginners. But I do love their ideas and tips.

So I made my granddaughter and grandson a Santa Cookie plate. Got the plates at the $ Tree and used white vinyl to make these adorable plates.

I know Santa will enjoy his cookies on Christmas served handsomely on their new plates. 

Until next time!
