Stamper’s Group January 2013…

Altered Notebook 

Went to Stamper’s Group on Wednesday, it was nice to get back into creating mode.

Our first project was re-creating the cover of the mini catalogue.

BTW I love ALOT of the products in the mini BUT, not any of the stamps!

I Love You Card Front 

The 2nd project was a Valentine’s card that fits into a letter size envelope.

I Love You Card 

The “To You From Me” part flips down to say “I Love You!”

Christmas Paper Ornaments…

Taylor and I made some Christmas tree ornaments a while back but, I wanted to wait to post as I wanted to take a picture of  them on the Christmas tree.

We had fun making these and they look pretty on the tree.

I wanted to make these ornaments last year but, didn’t! This year I made a couple, so cute and quick and SMALL!!! 

You can find the tutorial here.

I found tutorials for the last 3 on Youtube or ideas on Pinterest.

It’s only 3 weeks till Christmas…yeah!

Wishing each and every one of YOU a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Stamper’s Group June 2012 {Last One}…

Last night was my last Stamper’s Group for the year…I can’t wait till October rolls around again!

First we made this AWESOME Honeycomb card…I have been eyeing these FOREVER…so easy to make just time consumming!

Than we made this cute little box…I think a gift card should be able to fit in it…I haven’t tried yet!

I really had a great time…something to look forward to each month…anyone want to join me in October (Airdrie)?

Scrapbook Your Heart Retreat Projects…

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 used Cathie Allen’s Super Stock Cardstock (absolutely gorgeous cardstock).

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.

My fav.

My least fav!

Stamper’s Group May 2012…

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!!!

Sour Cream Christmas Favors…

I spent the afternoon today at my friend’s house making Sour Cream Christmas Favors for the dinner table on Christmas Day.

We always make something cute and yummy for the table for everyone.

These are so simple to make and have been around for a very long time.

Now they will be stuffed with yummy goodness, sealed and we made a cute tag with some twine to put on top.
