Sizzix Pennant Die

Are these not the cutest? I cased them from Patty Bennett’s blog. I used the Maine Blueberry DSP and the Pennant Die & also the Top Notes die. You also get the scallop flowers that are on the same die as the Pennant die. I cut in between each scallop and added an Old Olive 1 3/8″ circle and a white 1 1/4″ circle punch. I used the level 1 hostess set, Best yet and…

Holiday SAS

Yesterday I had a wonderful group of ladies attend my Holiday Stamp a Stack. They were a delight to have. They loved my stamp room, but so do I. My DH is very good to me. He told me I need a small refrigerator in my room, yeah! So I will post a couple of the cards today. Most you can figure out, but if you need any specifics, send me an email. I have…

Clear Album

I’ve been wanting to make one of those acrylic photo albums for a while now, but SU doesn’t sell them and the ones I’ve seen are at least $14.99 each. So I was talking to a friend, (thanks Elisa) and she said that she’s made them using our Paper Holders that are found on page 195 in the catalog. I found these photos in an envelope in my craft room when I was purging. I…

Bigz Scallop Envelope Box

Checkout the box I just made with the Bigz Scallop Envelope Die. I found this on Fireflies and Flutterbyes blog, (thanks to my Sister). I ended up using adhesive to hold down the envelope flaps, she didn’t adhere her flaps. This was so simple. You use 4 envelopes and adhere the side flaps together. Check out her blog she has a tutorial. I used: Riding Hood Red c/s Holiday Treasures DSP Cute & Curly stamp set,…

RAK

Look what I got in the mail last week. Pam Downs from Controlfreakswappers sent me this gift for the tea bag card I gave everyone who met at convention. This is similar to the ones I made, but she put  4,  3 x 3 note cards and envelopes in hers and also put the whole thing in a cellophane bag. Mine I put candy in a small cellophane bag and stuck it inside the envelope.…

Comments

Ok, so finally you really can leave comments on my blog. When my DH tried to help me with this a couple of weeks ago, we still thought you couldn’t leave comments. Then, much to my surprise I saw I had 2 people leave me comments. Thanks Connie Babbert and Shona Watson. I really wish I got all this computer stuff. Just when I think I do, something happens and I don’t.

Window Dressings

I made this card for my Sister who had surgery end of last month. I used Window Dressings which is a level 3 hostess set and the Joy Fold for the card. Also used the Bella Rose DSP and my chalks to color. I really like this fold.  Notice how the scallop on the bottom left holds the center part of the card closed. Too cool. Just wished I’d thought of it………
