Here is the first of several projects I'll be doing in my January Classes. They will be featuring the Valentine's Bundle on special from Stampin' Up! this month into next. It was a fun easy project.

Hi -I haven't posted in over a week-I just seem to have a hard time keeping up the week we go out to New Mexico to visit my DD. I made this right before we left for my Kids crafts class. Unfortunately no one signed up, I will be making a bunch to give as gifts-I hope if I have time. I have so many things I'd like to make and so little time. So hopefully I'll get my blog rounds done soon and get to enjoy everyone else's creations as well. The Christmas countdown has begun and we all are rushed I'm sure-so thanks for looking and enjoy the process! All products are SU! except the calendar.

Here is a project I'm planning for a class this month-it can be either a card or a table top decoration-or both. It fits in the Small Open End envelope and uses Windsor knot DSP. I used Chocolate Chip Ink on Sage Shadow Paper. The Paper is 6" high and each panel is 3.25" wide. I am going to make these to send to a few special people in my life, I really hope some customers sign up for this class.

These are small wall hangings I made-all SU products except the wood they are on. They we very quick and easy, both are watercolored with watercolor crayons and aqua painter. I drilled the holes and just hammered in the eyelets they couldn't be set but they aren't going anywhere.

Here is my countdown to Christmas, I used an oval plaque from the craft store and wooden ovals, the edge is painted with crackle paint-this was my first experience with that. It was a bit of a pain the wood had to be sanded, sealed then painted. The oval is about 20x12 so I had to use two sheets of DSP to cover the front. The edge of the oval is beveled so I couldn't trace it-I rubbed a lead pencil around the curves to make a line to cut-then made a rough cut, pasted the paper down the used a craft knife to remove the overage. I then sanded and distress the edge. The little dots in the vinyl didn't stick to the backing and I had to pick each one off the transfer paper-ugh! the black stand is from that giant store that has every thing and was $3.89 or so. This is an amazing project much cuter in person, it did add up to be about $45.00 to make. The plaque was about 11.80 with coupon, decor element 24.95, paint, sealer, paper, little ovals were 3.25. I still have to make the rest of the numbers-so I had better finish this!

These are the five cards for The Christmas Card Stamp-a-stack. I have changed the Mr. Twigster card since the initial draft-I like this one much better. I hope you do too! These cards will hopefully be simple enough to finish quickly 3 of each.

Here is a framed Decor Element-used the Autumn Paper from the Holiday Mini, The frame is 16x20, I would consider doing this as a class if anyone is interested. It was quick and easy and will adorn my kitchen counter as soon as Halloween is over.

This is a thank you gift I made for someone that has helped me with Emily unfortunately I forgot to bring it with me when I saw her. It is all retired papers, I love the flower brad, I just wish those dark chocolate kisses weren't purple foil.

I sure had fun this rainy weekend with my Spooky Paper-this is the smaller board Book Basic with a decor element-only available till October 31.Below is a threesome of fun-the new Stampin'Up! Sizzix dies are so stinkin' cute! can you see the little dementionaled spider on the candy cup? so fun-I love that every bit of the die has something to punch out-no waste more for your money!
Okay so how cute is this? this picture doesn't do this banner justice-I will so be making this for every Holiday! My DSP is in trouble-no paper is safe-this was so easy-so fun and not even very time consuming-I completely loved it-the letters were inspired by decor elements sadly the welcome doesn't come in black so I had to die cut letters but I then decided hey-black chunky glitter! WOW-so cool-except the part were I rubbed a sparkle in my eye-humm safety glasses for glitter projects? I think not-maybe I should just slow down and wash my hands occasionally?

Since someone heckled me for not posting for almost a month want to make sure I share at least once a week. This is what I've been playing with this week. A little Halloween sweetness. It's a card, a candy bar wrapper and a candy stick holder-orange candy. All super easy and fun to make.
