2011 Calendar

Hello everyone! I haven't posted since before Christmas! Wow! I have been crafting though, and I have come across a wonderful template at Splitcoast Stampers. If you would like to download this calendar,  click here. I made this as a prototype for a class I will be having in January. I made it with my new, fantastic, wonderful, amazing Zutter Bind it All!(can ya tell I really like it?!) Anyway, I used some chipboard for the front and back cover. I stamped a background stamp from Unity, all over the front. I added papers, and my tattered florals die flower. The label was made with my top note die, and with a little trick, made it small. I don't have Tim's die, but I'm sure his fancy label is close to the top note die from Stampin Up. When I get ready to have the class for this, I will post it here, and on my Ippity blog. It may have different papers, and color scheme. Have a Happy New Year everyone!!

Christmas Ornaments

I made a couple ornaments today for gifts, and thought I would share them.
They are made with cardboard.These are from  paper packs. The tree pattern I got from a blog, and for the life of me can't find it now! I did save it to my computer, so I can email it if you want it. The tree is about 6 inches tall, and about 4 1/2 inches wide. I cut the cardboard shape, then covered it with patterned paper. Cut into 3 pieces, each being 2 inches. Punch holes with any paper punch, and attach pieces with ribbon.
The snow man was made the same way. I cut 3 circles, 1 1/2", 2", 2 1/2"  I stamped on the two pieces, then used a marker for the eyes and nose.
Very quick and easy to do. Would make a cute topper on a gift too!

Jennie's Tag Withdrawl Entry

I made this tag from the inspiration that Jennie posted at the Gingersnaps blog, and am entering it on her blog here !
I used a tag from the office supply store. I do not have the rosette die yet, so I did mine the hard way! I used Stampin Up ink in bordering blue. The swirl stamp is from My Sentiments Exactly, and is embossed in clear. The music score stamp is from Stampin Up. It's a Stampin Around wheel. I used some gold star mini garland, and gold wire trim for the top of the tag. Jennie said she wants to see everyones take on her tag, so here is mine!

CCC #24 Entry

This week's challenge at Linda's blog is all about sparkle. And it's been snowing here the past few days, and with the upcoming holiday, the timing is perfect! I did a tag because tis the season! And to go along with the snow here, I did a snowman one. The stamp is from Stampin Up, as is the music notes. The sentiment stamp is My Sentiments Exactly. I embossed the snowman with Ranger's embossing powder, and used vintage photo DI all over the tag. Then at last came the sparkle! Which I spread all over the tag. I decided to use gold ribbon to match the brown ink. Check out the L3 blog here for all the other great entries for this challenge! It'll sure put a 'twinkle' in your eye!
