A Crop-A-Dile Class Project

Using the Stampin' Up! Crop-A-Dile

We had such a fun time at the Crop-A-Dile class last night!  I just loved the expressions when they set an eyelet or made a faux brad for the first time!  It’s always so neat when something gives a WOW moment!

In the course of the class we made several projects, each using the Crop-A-Dile in a fun, new way.  The last project we made is what you see pictured above.  I knew I would get the question of how to remember the settings.  This is my cure.  We each made a display to hang on our walls so the next time we pick up the Crop-A-Dile we’ll know just what settings we need.

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you’ll join me later for the 10 minute challenge!

Home Sweet Home Framed Artwork

Sweet Pea Stitched FeltI wanted to share this fun project with you that I made the other day.  I used Sweet Pea Stitched Felt and the Timeless Type embosslit Dies.

I didn’t want to squish the the felt so I decided to adhere them to the glass.  By doing that, I can easily switch the paper behind the flowers if I decide later to use some DSP instead of Whisper White.  I can also change the words if I like because those were glued to the Whisper White cardstock.  I hope you like it!

All Holidays Stitched Felt Card

All Holidays stamp set

Yesterday I sat down to play with the Sweet Pea Stitched Felt.  I’m going to miss this when the mini catalog retires at the end of the month!    I’m not sure how many packs I have gone through in the last couple months!

Bella Toile Background stamp

I used the Bella Toile background stamp for the background of the card and the All Holidays stamp set for the sentiment.  Do you see that little paper the sentiment is stamped on?  That is one of the kisses sending love notes on page 19 of the Occasions Mini Catalog.  It’s very easy to overlook those so be sure to check them out.

The designer paper on the bottom of the card is from the To the Nines Specialty pack.  I used two types of ribbon, one is the Chocolate Chip Satin ribbon and the other is Pretty in Pink narrow grosgrain ribbon.  This is a very simple but fun card to make!

Thank you for stopping by!  I made some other fun projects yesterday that I look forward to sharing with you soon!

Another Handmade Apron to Share

Dressing up the Soap Bottle

I promised I’d share my second apron with you when I was able to get decent pictures.  Here it is!  I know someone who crotchets little dresses for on dish detergent bottles like this so I decided I would make my own version.  What do you think?

Sending Love Specialty DSP

I used the Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon from the Occasions Mini Catalog and some Pretty in Pink narrow grosgrain ribbon.

Tag punch

The pocket is made with the Stampin’ Up! Tag punch.  I used a Pretty in Pink Stampin’ Write marker to draw on the stitching.  Very simple and easy.  It only took me a couple minutes to make this and it sure dresses up a boring bottle of soap!

Thank you for stopping by!

Get Well Wishes Card

Abundant Hope stamp set

I had a fun time coming up with this card yesterday.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Two Tags die which I just got along with the Abundant Hope and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets.

Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set

I decided to add some texture to the So Saffron cardstock with one of our Stampin’ Up! backgrounds I texturz plates.  The designer paper used on the card is from the Cottage Walls DSP and the ribbon is the Rich Razzleberry grosgrain.  I hope you like it!

Thank you for stopping by to visit today!

One of a Kind & Sweet Pea Stitched Felt Artwork

One of a Kind stamp set

I wanted to share this framed artwork with you that I made for one of my upline.  I used the One of a Kind stamp set from page 130 of the Idea Book & Catalog along with the Sweet Pea Stitched Felt from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

Handmade Framed Artwork

This is a little frame that I picked up from the local dollar store.  The Stitched Felt fits wonderfully in it and the black of the frame brings out the colors so well!

Around the base of the frame I used the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware along with Old Olive narrow grosgrain ribbon.  The saying from the One of a Kind stamp set fits wonderfully inside the Designer Label Punch and therefore the Hodgepodge Hardware.

Thank you for stopping by!  I would love to hear from you!

Abundant Hope Easter Card

Abundant Hope stamp set

This is the card we did as the Make n Take at the party in Bel Air, MD yesterday.  It was a hit and everyone seemed to like it!  We used the Abundant Hope stamp set which can be found on page 24 of the Occasions Mini Catalog.

Hand-stamped Easter Card

To make the card we used the Cottage Walls DSP along with Rich Razzleberry ribbon, the Scallop Circles Big Shot die and of course the Abundant Hope stamp set.  it’s a very simple card to make and could easily be duplicate!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by, I hope this will be an inspiration to you!

Heard from the Heart Sweet Pea Card

Sweet Pea Stitched Felt Card

I made this card yesterday when I had a few minutes to sit down and play.  I just got the 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain ribbon as part of the last product share (yes, I like to participate in those too!) and I wanted to put it to use!  Be sure to check out the new Stampin’ Up! Product Shares I posted yesterday!

Heard from the Heart stamp set

I decided to use the Sweet Pea Stitched felt instead of a bow to spice up the card a little more.   To get the effect I wanted I used a large brad to pull the ribbon together and then adhered the stitched felt to the brad using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The stamp set I used is Heard from the Heart which is a great set that covers several occasions.  The colors used on the card are Real Rose, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla.

Stampin' Up! Backgrounds I Texturz Plates

Can you see the swirly texture on the Very Vanilla cardstock?  I used one of the Stampin’ Up! Backgrounds I texturz plates to do this.  I wish is was easier to photograph the texturz so you could see it better but .  .  .  .
