Journals with Pen

I made several of these for some of my stamping friends. I used Stampin' Up! Flower Folds (115970), Scallop Square(115950) and Little Leaves (114511). Put these through the Big Shot and then decorated the pens with matching paper. Fun and useful projects...

Every year for Christmas I make calenders for my three children and ourselves. The pictures are from the months of the previous year. I always bought from SU but they have discontinued them. My husband bought me a bind it all for my birthday last year so made our own... They are made from 99% SU products both current and retired. Lots of fun to do although they take a lot of time. It is so fun to see the grandchildren grown and all of us change as the years go by. I am hoping to use My Digital Studio next year. I think this is the first time that I have never had snow in November. Actually we had a dusting this morning but it is almost gone.. Thanks for stopping by Leave a comment if you wish.

Just to let you know I have completed the My Digital Studio course and am now certified.. It is a fun program and very easy to use.

We still are having very nice weather no sign of snow, we do have our BIG snow man out in the yard I will take a picture one of these days.. Our new furnace has been installed so we should keep nice and warm this winter, also a new air-conditioner will try that next summer.

Senic Season

Here is a card that we did at one of my last workshops. The trees are embossed with Clear powder (109130) over Garden Green Craft ink (101841). Then I used a cloud template and sponged with Bashful Blue classic ink. I had cut the Seasons Greetings off of my stamp set and remounted it so that I can use the trees by them selves. I took my Two Way Glue Pen (100425) added glue then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds(102023) on top. This uses Whisper White and Not Quite Navy card stock.
Much prettier in person. Thanks for dropping by.

Gift bag

Hello all, well it has been a very busy time. Did a couple of craft shows and a stamp a stack in the last few days. Thanks to all who supported me. I did very well and am pleased with the turn outs and all the comments I received. This gift bag my sister brought with her on one of her visits a long time ago. I know my stamp groups made them last year and really like it. So thought I would share here. I know my sister got the idea from Peg B from Washington State, her demo and the girl who actually got me started with SU products. thanks Peg... It uses Night of Navy, Old Olive and Confettie White paper. The stamp set Heard from the Heart (111644) the wide oval punch(112082) and a retired snow flake punch. I put wiggly eyes and a bit of wire as well.
