Two Tags Die

Tags, tags and more tags! I have seem to have got a kick about making tags with the Bigz Two Tags Die and the Big Shot! We made some of these at Convention and then I ordered the Die and I am just now using it for Christmas Tags for the Bazaar! Once you start making them there are all kinds of ideas to use on them. I worked on these tonight while a group of Lion's Club members were in our garage sacking candy for our local music program. I can remember as a little kid when Santa would always bring a sack of candy and an apple to us after our program. I used Real Red, Whisper White, Kraft, Chocolate Chip and Glorious Green card stock and ink for these tags. I also used the Scallop Punch, 1 1/4 Circle and 1 3/8 Circle Punches, Oval Punches, and the new Large Snowflake Punch. Watch my blog this week and you will see what else you can do with the Snowflake Punch. Have a great evening!

Thanksgiving Card

You gotta love it! This is a card I just got in the mail from Theresa! It is so cute with the Sock Monkey stamp set! Theresa, thank you so much-you are so creative! I had a great day today-getting some more projects done for a Bazaar next Sunday. I am just about done! Tomorrow night the Lions Club is coming to our house to sack candy for the Elementary School Program. Lots of candy in our garage! I am sure they will have fun putting it all together. A busy week coming up but will be fun!!

Christmas Snowflake Card

This card was made with Whisper White and Bashful Blue card stock, glitter, snowflake punch and Heard from the Heart stamp set. It is one of those really fast and easy cards that we made at our Stamp-A-Stack Christmas Card Class last Sunday. I CASED this from Dawns blog. Today I made 6 batches of chokecherry and grape jelly for Christmas gifts. So glad to have that job done! I also got to see my sister and her husband for a little while. Sam even stopped in for a bowl of chili so had a great day visiting with everyone. Have a great evening!!!

More Downline Projects

What a day! Today I went to the Assisted Living and we made 2 cards for New Years! Oh, my I just can't move fast enough for them and we need patience! They are so funny!!! All the years I taught Kindergarten and First Grade and I would say"there isn't such a thing as Can't" and still when people are older they say they "Can't do this". It was a great hour and I really do enjoy working with them! The two pictures today are some more crafts and cards that my downline brought to the meeting on Monday. So many clever ideas! No one should wonder what to make for Christmas gifts as there are so many ideas on the internet! I am going to get a sample scrapbook page made for my December club and then hopefully I can get some jelly made tomorrow before my sister arrives in town. I hope you have a great evening!!!

Downline Projects

These pictures are from our Downline Meeting on Monday. Cheryl made a Ribbon Holder out of an Oatmeal Box and put holes in the side so the ribbon could be pulled out. Sarah made the beautiful card that looks like candies and Cheryl also made the pinwheel card. In the picture below we have several cards that Sarah made from a Scrappin' Christmas Kit. Some of the cards I used at my Stamp-A-Stack Christmas Class. On the side you see some batting stacked and this is for the purses I have been making with the Big Shot. I hope everyone has a great day! It is so nice outside. I was out cleaning up the horse corrals and actually had to take my coat off. I am off to work on my tiles and make another purse. Enjoy the day!

Some More Tiles

This tile was made with Craft ink and a dauber. I stamped the background stamp on with Craft ink and then added the leaves with Ruby Red, Really Rust and Mustard. You put Glassy Glaze on it and bake it in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. After it cools you can put the Chocolate Chip Ribbon and leaf from the Big Shot on it. This is to be used a a decoration to sit on a stand!

Gayle made this tile by putting it in the oven 3 times. First she stenciled the Ruby Red, glassy glaze, baked it for 10 minutes, cooled and then added the mustard bell, glassy glaze, baked it for 10 minutes, cooled, and then added the brown swirly stencil and added glassy glaze and then baked it for another 10 minutes. These tiles all used the CRAFT inks. We had a lot of fun making these tiles. Today was my downline meeting so I will share some of the projects my downline made-Wow! So creative!

We made Christmas 6 x 6 tiles and also some fall ones. Everyone seemed to be having so much fun and creating a new style. A great group of gals on Nemo Road! I will be showing you more tiles and some closer up pictures of some of them! Thanks gals, you were a lot of fun!

Christmas Tile

I have been having so much fun making some tiles for Christmas presents and last night I thought of putting this cute "Jingle all the way" saying on a 6 x 6 tile. You can purchase these tiles for under $1.00 at your local stores. The Definitely Decorative image comes in 2 different sizes and in 3 colors--black, chocolate and real red.
117508--Black #114713 Chocolate #114707 Real Red 3 x 3 5/8 for $3.50 (shown)
#117509 Black #114714 Chocolate #114708 Real Red 6 x 7 1/4 for $9.95
Red Stitched Ribbon #115607 and the ribbon also comes in Chocolate Stitched
These could not be used for warmers, just decorations. I hope everyone has a great day! I am going to be sewing away and making more tiles!

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Isn't this just the cutest little bag? And it is already made for you so you just have to add the ribbon and tag. You can purchase this Treat Box (#115690) for only $3.95 and you get 5 per package. They are 4 5/8 x 2 3/8 x 6 1/8! What a deal and so easy to use!
I just finished making a bunch of Christmas gifts and tomorrow (oh, guess it is today) I plan to get some sewing done after I make a quick trip to town to cut my hair and visit my dad. I hope you have a great and fun day today! Do something exciting!

This is a Christmas card that we made at Convention using the Stamp-a-ma-jig. We made this at our November club meeting. This is the inside of the card.

You can fold the card and add a belly band and some ribbon and it makes in to a wonderful card. I used Garden Green and Very Vanilla Card stock. The ribbon is the new Real Red stitched ribbon.

Club Cards

It was such a beautiful day again today! Wow! Well over the 70 degree mark. We loaded cattle out and then I put up Christmas lights on my fences and decorated 7 trees. I dont like to put on lights when it is cold out so this was a perfect day to do that. I also got up extra early and made the help some homemade doughnuts and cookies!
Last night at Club Peggy and Kris shared these 2 neat projects that they made (I forgot to do mine) At this club I give the members some cardstock, DSP and embellishments (all the same items) and then they see what they can create by the next club meeting. You would never know looking at these 2 cards that they had the exact materials to begin with! Very nice job gals! Have a great evening!
