3D Triangle Tree

I litteraly made ALL of these trees in about 15 minutes!! You'll be amazed at how easy they are to make. Check out Fairle Beaman Carroll's blog for complete (excellent) instructions with pictures! Stamping 101: Dashing 3-D Tree I used some of my scrap pieces of DSP to make 2 of the trees and then I found this background piece I had made a few years ago and thought it would be perfect for this project. It's the tree with the leaves stamped on it. Seriously, check out Fairle's blog and follow her awesome instructions and you'll have one (or more) of these cute little trees adorning your home in no time!! By the way, they fold flat and fit in a standard card sized envelope perfect for mailing!! These could be the easiest Holiday cards you've ever made!If you have any questions, please let me know. Have a great day!


All in the Family Campaign Update November 28, 2007

Our sincere thanks go out to all those who are participating in the All in the Family campaign. As of now, demonstrators worldwide have sold over 4000 All in the Family stamp sets!
There's not much time left to participate in this campaign, so if you have not yet placed your orders, please do so no later than November 30. Remember, every dollar Stampin' Up! receives from the sale of this set will go directly into a fund dedicated to helping Dave Abbott's family. Even if you already own the All in the Family stamp set, it would make a great holiday gift for someone that does not have it. No matter how the set is used, you can be sure you are making a difference in the lives of Dave's wife and three children during this holiday season.
We are so proud of you, our customers. We are so touched by the love and compassion you show for each other and for those who need your help. Thank you again for all you do!

How about giving to a wonderful cause like this during our Holiday Season. A family in need is the most worthwhile cause and I'm happy to be a part of a company that acknowledges that. Happy Holidays to you all!!

"Gift" Card

I had a dream about this card. Yes, you read that correctly...I actually dream about cards. I know, you think I'm crazy but, sometimes I'm so into my stampin' that all I dream about is making cards and I get some pretty good designs when I'm asleep. I think this was a pretty good dream that came to fruition today. The overall size of the card here is 4" x 4". I used our Dashing DSP for 2 of the "gift" boxes and an old DSP for the red one. I used the real Diamond Dust on each package using 1/8" Sticky Strip. For those of you that don't know what Diamond Dust is, it is super, tiny glass shavings. It is dangerous (I had a piece stuck in my foot the other day) and should not be used around children of any age. I recommend using it over a Powder Pal tray to keep it contained at all times. Or, better yet, do the Faux Diamond Dust technique explained in an earlier post here. Anywhoo...I hope you like my little Christmas card and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Rolled Star Ornaments

I got this idea from a Martha Stewart Project Sheet at Michael's. (click here for the Martha Stewart Craft website with full instructions: Martha Stewart Crafts - Glitter Star Ornaments) The first one I did is the blue one with polk a dots. I really am not too happy with this one since the paper is a little thicker than patterned paper but not quite as thick as card stock. It is from one of the old Stampin' Scrap packs and it's not even double sided. That's how old it is!!! I liked the print, that's why I tried this paper first. The second one is made with our new Designer Series Double Sided Paper which is much thinner and more flexible to work with. I'm still not sure I like the "open" side of these ornaments but I do kinda' like the back ok. I hope you like them and try one. They are pretty easy to make and would be nice on a Christmas tree or just hanging around your house for the holidays.

Halloween Board Book

Ok, I know Halloween is long over but, I had signed up for this class at our local scrapbook store, Scrapbook U ,back in October and the instructor got really sick so she rescheduled. Boy am I happy she rescheduled!!! I love this book and I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures. Amber is the wonderful instructor that designed this book. We had a full class of 12 and she was so patient with everyone as we all went through creating this awesome book!! Thank you so much Amber!!
