Silhouette Animals

Hello Stampers!  Once a month I go to a Silhouette class to continue learning how to use my machine.  I love it more and more all of the time!  This month we made animals to go on cards, scrapbook page, or decor item.  These animals are the cutest darn things ever!  Check them out!

Dragonfly Treats

Hello Stampers!  Every month at my crop, I make little table gifts for the attendees.  It is so much fun to try to come up with these goodies!  Well, tomorrow is my crop so I thought I would show you what I made for the attendees!

Detailed Dragonfly candy nuggets, Inkin With Dink Here is a small cluster of dragonflies (did you know that is what you call a group of dragonflies?)

Detailed Dragonfly Hershey nuggets, Inkin With Dink And here is one upclose.  I wrapped a Hershey nugget with a 1" wide strip of designer series paper from the Fresh Florals designer series paper stack.  I then cut out a dragonfly from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.  The dragonfly is simply glued down to the candy!  So cute!

It is still a secret to the attendees tomorrow, so don't let them know what they are!  We want them to be surprised!!!

Weekend projects

Hello Stampers!  Thanks for coming back today to check out my fun projects that I made over the weekend!  I got together with a good friend of mine that I actually met through Stampin' Up!  She lives a couple of hours away and we used to get to see each other every year at Convention and again at Leadership.  Now that Stampin' Up! has changed the way they hold Convention, and the locations, we don't get to see each other very often!  So we decided we just needed to make an effort, and this weekend was it!  We met in the middle on Sunday.  Got a hotel room and stamped and talked for hours!  We had so much fun!  Here are the projects that we made:

Twist & pop card, Inkin With Dink This was the first project that I brought.  I wanted to figure out how to make a twist and pop card!

Twist n' pop card, Inkin With Dink We did it!  So easy and such a WOW card!

Gift card wallet, Inkin With Dink I also wanted to make a gift card wallet using our gift bag punch board!

Gift card wallet, Inkin With Dink They turned out really cute too!  Be watching for a video on how to make these!

Cool Treats Clip

Hello Stampers!  I have to show you this super cute big paper clip that I received at a class that I attended at OnStage in April.  The whole class was centered around the Cool Treats stamp set and was super cute!  The supplies that we needed for the class were all in a bag that was held closed by this super cute clip!

Cool treats paper clip, Inkin With Dink

I have made clips like this before, and the are super easy to make!  The scallop circle that is around the image, just be sure to cut two of them.  They they are held together with glue dots with the large paperclip sandwiched between them!  It's that easy!

I was able to find these large paper clips at Walmart, but I'm sure they are available in multiple locations.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh So Succulent Box

Hello Stampers!  Yesterday I shared with you the cards that we made as make n' takes at our April team meeting.  I made anther box, but it didn't make the cut and got scrapped at the last minute!  Would you like to see it?  I do really like it!

IMG_8843-001 Here are the measurements of the box:  3 3/4" wide x 1 1/2" deep X 7" high.  I used the Succulent Garden designer series paper.  The flower is made from the Pansy punch, Blossom Builder punch, and a White Accent in the middle!

Now my question to you is, what would you do with a box this size???  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you would do!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Summer wrappin'

Hello Stampers!  When I was trying to figure out a title for this post I came up with Summer Wrappin' and I immediately got the Grease song Summer Lovin' in my head!  Guess I'll be humming that for the rest of the day!  Anyway, I just wanted to share with you the fun packaging the Shelli shared with us on her blog!  For all of the family birthdays she designs a wrapper that shows off the receivers personality.  I love this one!!!

Sean's+pkg+2017

Isn't it fun?  And doesn't this just scream summer??  What do you think is in it???  I'd guess either cash or a gift card!  Thanks for stopping by!  

This morning was my Sale-a-bration Celebration!  We had a fabulous time even though the weather didn't really cooperate!  I'll show pictures of the event soon!

Happy Easter!

Hello Stampers!  Happy Easter!  I hope everyone is having a blessed holiday with your family!  I have both of my daughters home for the weekend.  We had a great time outside yesterday walking, playing washers, and just having family time.  Today Amie will be heading back to school for the last time this year!  Two weeks until finals start and then she is home!  

Today I have some Easter goodies to share with you that I have received from friends.

Shrinky Dinks!

Hello Stampers!  I have to show you the super cute gifts that I made for my teammates that went to OnStage with me!  As I was cleaning my stamping room a few weeks ago, I came across a couple of packages of shrinky dinks.  I had a package of clear and a package of white.  So, I decided I would use them to make bag tags for my gals going to OnStage with me!  

They were so much fun to play with!  My daughter made some with me and commented that she remembered doing these as a little girl!

So, do you want to see what I made?  Here you go:

IMG_8636-001 

Here are some close ups:

IMG_8637-001 I made this charm using the Custom Tee stamp set that is currently available in the Occasions catalog!  Love it!

IMG_8639-001 For this charm I used a retired Christmas stamp set.

IMG_8642-001 Over the years I have accumulated several Stampin' Up! demonstrator stamp sets which were perfect for these!

Thanks for stopping by and checking these out!  Use some of your stamps and try some of these on your own!  Remember that you have to use Staz On stamp pads on the shrinky dink material.

OnStage roomie gifts!

Hello Stampers!  I can post this because by now my roomies have received their gifts!  A lot of times when we attend Stampin' Up! events, we do roomie gifts.  This time, we decided not to, but I don't follow directions very well!  I just couldn't help it!  Plus there were only three of us going so it wasn't a big deal!  

I made new catalog kits!

Here is one up close:

I also made some super cute name tents to put at our places on the table:
