Stampin’ Sunday 2-22-09

My up-line Mindy Bywater made this for our 3D swap at Convention.  It’s a smaller version of the table top scrapbooks.

This cute little mini album is just 5″ x 5″.  It would make a really cute gift or is a fun album for little girls.  It’s really easy to make and I love that it’s sturdy enough to  stand up on a counter-top or you can fold it up and leave it flat.

Stampin’ Sunday 2-15-09

Today I decided to share the projects that we did at club this month.  They were all centered around the wonderful Sale-A-Brations Sets.  We also used the technique that I showed on Technique Tuesday February 3rd.  You can check out all the details there.

The Scrapbookers got to make this cute 12 x 12 double page layout.  I got the idea form page 4 of the sale-a-bration catalog.  I love that the paper, Polka Dot Punches stamp set and the ribbon all work together.

Stampin’ Sunday 2-1-09

Last weekend we had a fun day of Stamping at Janice’s down-line meeting.  Here are the rest of the fun projects that we got to make.

This is a fun pillow box.  I know you can’t see it but we used the new textured plates on it and it looks really cool.  The flower is the new Simple Flower embosslit die .  I love that it embosses it and cuts it out with just one quick turn through the big shot.   We used a half pearl from the pretties kit for the center.  The tag is made by stamping in VersaMark pad and embossing with white embossing powder.  I love that we got to use the new organza ribbon.  I think it is so pretty.

Stamping Sunday 1-25-09

I had a meeting on Saturday and I was asked to demonstrate and new technique.  She explained it to me over the phone and sent me a few pictures then I had to figure it out.  This technique was so easy and I loved it.  I also love that it looks really complicated.  I debated on which category to post my samples in.  I finally decided on Stamping Sunday because I think I’m going to use this fun technique for club.  I still have a few openings so if you want to come and learn how to do this great technique come and check out club.  Click here to find out more info on club.

zoofariThe technique is called faux leather so I started to think of what kinds of things I could do that would have a leathered look.   My first thought was an alligator.  So I started playing with punches and came up with this fun alligator.  Then the page just developed from that.  All the letters are also done with this great technique and then I cut them out using the big shot serif alphabet #113464 $149.95.  I really love how the page turned out.  I can’t wait to put some of our pictures on it from Animal Kingdom.  I used the Wild About You set #115110 $25.95.  The paper is #112164 Chocolate Chip Patterns DSP $9.95 and #112160 Old Olive Patterns DSP $9.95.

leather-purseThe project that was shown to me was a purse so this is what I came up with.  Once again I used the big shot and this time I used the top note die #113463 $21.95.  The basic purse is made with 2 dies and the top is done with the faux leather and then folded over.  I used the awesome Filigree Designer Brads #112577 $5.95 to dress it up a bit and give it the girly girl look.  Underneath the brad is a piece of Velcro so it’s easy to open.  I stamped on it with Doodle This #114954 $33.95 and used Tombow Glue #110755 $3.95 to apply Dazzling Diamonds glitter #102023 $4.50 to give it a little sparkle.  The butterfly is from the set Dreams du Jour #111624 $18.95.  It’s wings are also touched with glitter.  I filled a cellophane bag with chocolates so it makes a great gift for any girl.

mama-baby-elephantMy last project was these fun elephants.  I got the idea from one of my favorite blogs Inking Idaho.  If you want to check out the actual post you can click here.  I believe it was idea from several other talented demonstrators.  I believe the name of the talented person that came up with this darling nugget box is Kelly Sampson.  I followed some of the links and found her website.  She has a whole family of these great critters.  You can check it out by clicking here.  They are designed to hold a little chocolate nugget.
