Accents & Elements Scrap Tin

So I was supposed to have a Craftin' with TLC night but never got around to a project.  However I myself did do some craftin'.  Not only will I be a vendor this year but my best friend volunteered us to run our church Holiday Craft Fair this year. SO that means I need to get busy. 
I found this project on splitcoast & just LOVED it.  With the help of my husband (he's so wonderful) he made me see how easy it was to actually put together.  You see I'm a visual step-by-step learner but have been getting pretty good at looking at just a picture & figuring it all out.  This will be one of the items I'll be making to sell.  Hope you enjoy & keep an eye out b/c this could be an upcoming class ;-)
Thanx 4 lookin' & Happy Craftin'

 This is the Accents & Elements Tin (empty) that is available to purchase while supplies last on the clearance rack.  I used the old Island Blossoms Simply Scrappin' Kit, which was a hostess item, some soft subtles & rich regals brads, stampin' dimensionals, snail & sticky strip.
As you can see I kept this VERY simple since it will be the sample one shown at the fair.  You could go crazy with adding all sorts of embelishments.
There are a total of 8 inserts, 4 on each side & can hold 18 wallet sized photos.
If this is a class you & some friends would be interested in taking please contact me & we can set something up!

First Day of School ~ 8x8 Chipboard Album

Hello out there, I hope this post finds you welcoming the fall like weather with great joy! I don't know about you but I LOVE the fall. I know it's technically not fall until Sept. 21 but it sure feels like it. Now that my daughter is in school I truly can remember what it was like growing up. Weird how those memories come to the surface once we have children. So I'd like to share a few photos of Deb on her first day of preschool (she's in the 4's class this yr) WOW!

For all u mom's out there to girls, Hannah Montanna seems to be the "new" thing for the 4yr old.  All I have to say is, it's a good thing I like her music!! She picked out her outfit, right down to her princess socks (at least she hasn't "grown-up" that fast).
OK, so this seems to ber her new "pose" for pictures. Gotta luv it
Ah there's my little peanut.  When u stand back she looks so little. God I love this Kid!
Now onto some "craftin" :-)
I made this album at one of my INKredible events a few years ago. It's been sitting on display ever since. It's our 8x8 on board chipboard album & I just love them. You can create the entire look & feel you want your album to have. So I figured since I ordered like 1,000 pictures (the online site I use had FREE shipping) I needed a home for the many pictures that just couldn't go into the scrapbooks. I tell ya I have to either A, stop taking so many gr8 shots B, stop ordering the pictures or C, add them to the projects I've made. So I did just that, I hope you enjoy viewing them. To see the entire book click here.

Until next time
Happy Craftin'

Michelle's annual summer class

For the past two year's Michelle likes to get her friends together & have a class. It's a great way to see those she doesn't very often, me too as I they have all become such dear friends of mine. I also look forward to this b/c she keeps me on my toes for ideas. We always make a scrapbook page, card & anything BUT. So here they are, hope you enjoy. If this is something you'd like to do, well then contact me & we'll set something up.
Happy B-day 2 pg 12x12 layout
I found this sample on splitcoast & knew it would be perfect for the class. It uses 2 sheets of whisper white 12x12 card stock & the Happy B-day simply scrappin' kit (SSK). No stamps 7 EASY to make!!
Happy B-day Card
This card came right out of the catalog, see how simple that was? I find it so hard to come up with ideas that I regularly find something & either copy it exactly of change something, in this case I used the ice circle rhinestone brads instead of the button. This card again uses whisper white card stock for the base & the happy b-day SSK.
Desktop 2010 Mini-Calendar
I again visited splitcoast & found some various samples for this project & this is what I ended up making. I used the big shot & the top note die (my favorite die, so versatile). The designer paper was a level 1 hostess benefit from last year's catalog Prints Pack II. Some grosgrain ribbon, lg oval & scallop oval punches, adhesive & dimensional & voila a cute little calendar. If I decide to do the craft fair again I am DEFINITELY making these!!!
Well I hope you liked what you saw today & don't forget to contact me if you'd like to have your own class.

Designs by TLC

So I had my first official Designs by TLC project. My godmother called and asked if I would make her girlfriends bridal shower & wedding invitations. Of course I said YES YES YES!!!!

I was all gung ho & excited until I got the colors, lavender & salmon pink. The closest colors we have to those are our lavender lace & cameo coral which are very pretty but not so elegant for a bridal shower or wedding. So I took it upon myself, with asking the bride-to-be of course, if she wouldn't mind vanilla & chocolate. Once she agreed I knew JUST what to do. I broke out the Big Shot & got started. Here are the bridal shower invites & thank you cards. I incorporated her colors in those. Oh did I mention that we no longer sell vanilla note card sized envelopes? So those were copied, cut & assembled....I can't take credit for those though, my friend Amanda helped with them, along with helping me design the wedding invitations.
Card Stock: Pale Plum, Very Vanilla & Chocolate Chip
Classic Ink: Pale Plum, Lavender Lace, Cameo Coral & Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Ivory Wide Organdy Ribbon (discontinued), Big Shot, Top Note Bigz Die & Manhattan Flower Textured Impression Embossing Folder
Stamp Sets: Manhattan Flower & Wonderful Words (retired)
Adhesives: Snail Adhesive

Here are the wedding invitations & thank you cards, I again incorporated her colors in these. The invitation itself is the envelope. I liked the square b/c I think it's elegant for a wedding but we no longer sell the envelopes so that is what we came up with.

Card Stock: Pale Plum, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip & Vellum
Classic Ink: Pale Plum, Lavender Lace, Cameo Coral & Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Big Shot & Background 1 Texturz Plate, Eyelet border punch, Sponge
Stamp Sets: Thoughts & Prayers & Sincere Salutations
Adhesives: mini glue dots & snail adhesive

If you or anyone you know is looking for custom handmade invitations please feel free to contact me.

Until next time
Happy Stampin'

I Got My Groove Back!

So I had an open scrapnite/class on the 11th. It was the first time I combined both my events. I had noticed a decrease in my class events so I decided to try something new. I think it went fairly well, even though only 3 of the ladies made the projects they were able to do it at their leisure. They had the option of making a set of 4 money holder cards or a Gift card & Drink Packet or both.

I even got to get some of my scrapbooking done. I'm happy to say I only have 5 more pages to do in Andi's first year book (she'll be 2 in August). So here are the pages I completed, I have my journaling & a few accessories to add but at least they are done.
I also made these cute bookmarks for a customer who wanted to give her PTA staff a little gift. This was her last year as PTA President, I think they came out cute. She laminated them so they would hold up.
Hope you enjoyed this latest post, until next time.....Happy Stamping!
I've been having some "blogger" issues lately which is why I haven't updated in a bit.
