I saw this sweet, little container on Chic ‘n Scratch’s blog and printed up the instructions and knew instantly I wanted to make a Christmas one…maybe to put out on the Christmas dinner table this year.
I use to have a whole bunch of these containers…guess what? I recycled them all!
I had one lying around, so here is my prototype!!! Quick and very easy!
The weekend of June 8th I went to the SYH Retreat…their 5th one and my 5th one…this retreat is soooo wonderful and every year the gals just blow me away with their talent, projects and subject matter.
The little extras they do to spoil us are amazing!
This year’s theme: Garden of Life
This is a little canvas that we received with a paper napkin with a butterfly on it (tan in color). That’s it…2 things! A 5 minute project Christy said…ya right…more like 5 hours for me!!! LOL.
This was actually the 2nd attempt…the first time I stuck the napkin on with Modge Podge and it looked horrible…so I peeled it off, than I applied another square, same thing happened so I threw it in the garbage can! My friend Brenda-Lee took it out and peeled bits and pieces of the napkin off and said I think it will be fine…so I left it on my table and came back to it a while later…added some more paint, bling, ribbon and some inspirational sayings and voila…I’m in LOVE!!! Thanks Brenda-Lee!
These are a set of 6 postcards we made to stand on a easel.
We went to 6 different tables and made these postcards with inspirational sayings on them using different techniques. At first I thought: this is a whole LOT of work but, in the end I am so glad I took the time to make them.
Last night was my montly Stamper’s Group and I was the hostess…I earned $40 in FREE stuff!!! Yeah!
These are the projects we made:
Gorgeous Post It Note Holder using new stamps and paper from the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue. The Post It Notes inside are 4×6.
We used the Baby Wipe Technique to stamp the flower.
Very cute window card using new stamps and paper.
I love this little lunch bag holder that was very easy to make.
AND LOOK…the Post It Note Holder fits nicely inside the pocket…awesome teacher gifts!
We have a teacher in our Stamper’s Group (actually she teaches Grade 2 at Jaiden’s school) and we all asked her if teacher’s would like this as a gift…she said YES because it’s consummable and you can re-load more Post It Notes inside when done and of course it’s CUTE!!!
