Thursday's Workshop





I'm going to doing this make and take. They don't get to make both. The hostess wanted to do the frog waterfall card. I figured I would give everyone a choice of one or the other. I've precut 10 of each. I called her and she said there would 8 or 9 guests. I'm covered I think. Doubtful there will be 20.......lol. I have a few demo's I still need to work on but I'm glad this part is ready to go. Thanks for stopping by! I really appreciate all your comments and feedback!

More Teacher Gifts

Well, I totally case'd this idea from Carrie Gaskin's blog. Artistic Avenger. Her link is on the sidebar, go check her out! Thanks for the great idea Carrie.....I love it. It's like a little stationary container for pens, pencils post-it's etc. This brocade blue and polka dots and paisley DSP caddy is for Ryan's Kindergarten teacher. I included some lined post-it notes, pens and pencils. I even tied a ribbon handle so she can tote it if she wants.
These are some bookmarks I made for a coupld of the TA's that take the afternoon kindergarteners during their lunch. We see them everyday at the playground and they are just a couple of great ladies.
Here is the second caddy I made for Ryan's other teacher-Mrs. McMaster. She teaches them occasionally for gym and music. Usually 1/2 an hour twice a week. Really nice lady too!

So now, I'm officially done teacher gifts and I can concentrate on prepping for my workshop on Thursday night. I've already prepped 10 waterfall cards and need to do 10 more and then also some other little goodies. It's real late now, so I'm hitting the hay. I know for sure, I'll be dragging my butt tomorrow!

Nite.

Teacher Gift-My First Canvas

I started with an 8x10 canvas and inked it first with my creamy caramel craft ink pad, then my close to cocoa craft ink pad and finally a few swipes with my chocolate chip craft ink pad.
I then added a strip of patterned paper from the recollection collection and used my distressing tool to rough up the edges.
I then copied my sons class picture on my printer onto glossy white paper (it's not the greatest but I know she has an actual photo of the class) I then mounted the picture on chocolate chip which I also distressed the edges. I then used my mega and giga scalloped punches with chocolate chip and close to cocoa paper. This is where I wrote the kids names. Of course I needed to add some bling, so the I added some flowers and some rhinestone looking flowers.
Here I added to the bottom chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon with pewter hodgepodge hardware ribbon charms. I attached them with glue dots all the way around to the back. *Just under the charms)
Finally, I used sticky strip all around the edge and attached cranberry crisp stitched ribbon for the hanger.

This is the final product. I think it turned out ok. I really like it! What do you think? What would you do different?

It's late, I've been stamping all day- is this too gawdy?

At first, I loved what I created here. Now after making 17 for a swap with our Stampin' Up! group, I'm not feeling the love anymore. Tell me in your honest opinion, what you think?


This is a set of 12 thank you cards I made for Sue's neice as a present for her baby shower. The left side is the front and the right is the inside part. Then there was the gift bag with everything in it as well as the envolope for the card I made her which you can see in the previous post. Thanks for coming to visit my blog!


G'nite.

A couple of new creations

This is a CD calendar that I saw on someone's blog- I think Amy Celona. I made this for my friends new office. They needed a calendar for the front desk.

These are the scrapbook layouts for our scrap club yesterday. Isn't Ryan cute?!
This is a card I made for my g/f's niece. (Her shower is today) I originally tried to stamp these on the new blossoms chipboard but the color was totally faded out so I ripped them off and stamped it on Whisper White and cut them out. I just love this new Purely Pomegranate color! The top layer is the new River Rock. It was late when I took the picture so it's not very bright. I bling is a new rhinestone brad from SU! It's driving me crazy that the sentiment is crooked, but I don't have the time or patience to fix it. Sorry Lin...... I made more goodies for Lin last night so I will upload those tonight or tomorrow. Need to get cracking and make the 7 layer dip for the shower.

Ciao!

Terrible! I'm sorry to leave you all hanging...

It's been crazy around here! I have been crazy busy crafting so stay tuned for new posts by Sunday! I was getting ready for my scrap club on Saturday, birthday cards (So Aysha if you're reading this, look away....lol) I mailed you this card on Tuesday I think. I of course have some great ideas in my head, just lacking in the time department. I will get them out of my head to share with you. Here is the card I made for Aysha's 29th ehhem....birthday....Hope you like it!
