A Tisket, a Tasket!

It's Friday .... Fabulous Friday!!   (Spoken especially for a couple of friends who have been counting down to the weekend.  (Psssssssssssssst, girls .... You made it!)

Yesterday was a 2-class day here in the studio.  The evening class is always a repeat of the morning class ... so it's really more of a participant rotation rather than a change in projects all in one day.  I'm always happy to hear requests from customers, and today's project was requested by a class attendee last month.  Thanks for the suggestion, Christie!
These little Peeps jumped into my cart the very first day I spotted them in a store last month ... just begging for a basket to be created especially for them.  I had little choice but to oblige!

I wondered how it would look "tuxedo style", so here's the one I demonstrated for the ladies to follow along.  Experimental try on the color scheme, and we all agreed that it's a favorite!  The darling little bows are so easy to make with the Bow Builder punch!

Here's an easy way to pick up a free choice from the Sale-A-Bration catty!  The Berry Basket Bigz die sells for $37.95.  By simply adding on another $12.05 in products to your basket die order, you'll qualify for your choice of one free Sale-A-Bration offerings!  Or if you would like to earn even more, please just let me know and I'll be glad to help you in any way that I can.  

Now, here's a great little video on how to create with the Berry Basket Bigz die!

Sorbet Mini Gift Cards & Box!

Are you ready to create?  How about this little mini gift card box set?!


These little gift cards are easy-peasy to make.  Their finished size is 2.75" X 3 7/8" ... perfect for those hand-delivered gifts, such as those darling flowers you know your BFF simply can not resist!  I used the same simple layout on each card, simply varying the sentiment, with or without punched layers.  Whip up a group of these in just a few minutes, then you're ready to make their little custom-sized gift box!


Gather up your favorite papers & cardstock, and get ready to create this cute little giftable.  Make some to give, but be sure to make one for yourself as well!

Fringe & Banner Mega Bottle Cap

Still hoping that yesterday's "sharin' of the green" will begin to work some weather wonders & bring on some Spring!

While we wait, I'll share a 3D decor idea with you today!  Please don't tell me that I'm the only one who has a 'stash' of crafty items that is just ready & waiting to be brought out into the light.  Are there any brave stampers/scrappers out there willing to confess?


I'll go first.  This huge, 4-inch diameter 'bottle cap' has been amongst my alterables for too long, i.e. many months.   Now it's filled with little goodies and has its own spot here in my stampy zone.  The background paper is from the Watercolor Wonder dsp.  
Next, fringe scissors to the play table to create a happy two-color blossom, with leaves from the Secret Garden stamp set & dies.  The little 5-piece banner was a snap, from the Sale-A-Bration 'Banner Blast' stamp set and coordinating 'Banner' punch.  Tiny dots of Crystal Effect glued the banners to Linen Thread.  Then Mini Glue dots were used to adhere it all to the bottle cap's edges, with a couple of Candy Dots for good measure. 

In reality, this project has morphed one final time for better display here in my stampy classroom area.  The Taffeta Ribbon is great for wall hanging, but I've since removed that and it is now appearing on the magnetic display board here in the studio.

Okay ... Now it's your turn to confess to 'stashing' use-it-someday-goodies!

So glad you're here ... and I'd love to see you back again.   Hope you've found some inspiration for your own craftiness today!

Wasabi Birthday Wishes!

Welcome to March, everyone! 

It's been a crazy-busy time here for the past 2 1/2 weeks or more ... so I owe y'all a big apology for missing blog posts.  So off we go into our brand new month ... getting that much closer to finishing off this incredibly cold & icy & snowy & crazy winter!  Yay!!

Let's do it up in green!

Wild Wasabi green is the main color here, and it's CAS for an easy start.   I honestly adore the Watercolor Wonder designer series papers from the Occasions catalog.  This green chevron is just one of the several awesome papers in the set.  And, it will matches beautifully with your Gumball Green cardstock as well!  Marina Mist cardstock & ink are used in small amounts as an accent color.  'Subtles Candy Dots' are an easy little addition ... they're even self-adhesive!

See those bitty banners on the lower  portion?  The 'Banner Blast' stamp set (133554) and the 'Banner' punch ( 133519) are FREE Sale-A-Bration choices!

That's it for now!  I have several more creations to share here this month.   Hoping that you found some inspiration here today!


February! * Fun or Flurries?

Can you believe it's already February, 2014?   
And to top it all off ... I'm a wee little bit 'behind' on my blogging as of this latest flip of the calendar. 
Solution?   Start correcting that issue ... right now!

One of the January Creative Crew challenges back at Splitcoaststampers was to creative something other than a card for the CCREW0114HF challenge.  "HF" refers to 'Holiday Focus' ... and the challenge theme notes that January was National Hobby month.   (See why I'm a bit 'behind' now?)

Well, I just couldn't resist jumping into these 3D snowflakes as my contribution:




The one above turned out to be approximately 7 3/4" diameter, which is a nice "medium" size for hanging here in my studio.  I did happen to explore the original size I had viewed on the internet, but felt it was too large for my purposes, so I experimented with sizes for the starting square shapes to bring down the sizing for myself.  Here are a couple of 7.75" snowflakes that I used for packaging over the holidays.  All of the flakes were sprayed with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz for close-up shimmer ... a very easy & fun addition!

Here's my video tutorial to "enable" your own snowflakes decorations.  The video was actually created before I had this new SU-Only blog ready for viewers ... so it still refers to my other blog, Savor the Journey.  Signs of the changing times!   I hope you enjoy it.     ;) 


If you have questions, I'm happy to try to help in replies right here, or via my contact button/email in the left blog column.   Happy day to y'all!
