Eli just purchased the cookie presses and she and her son, Theo, made these. After she was done baking them she painted them with WiltonBrand Edible Markers! What a great idea and I am sure they had a lot of fun with this project! Thanks a bunch, Eli, for sharing!

Rosette Tag

We made this tag at club this month by punching out the tag with the Big Shot and then adding a rosette , scalloped punch, whit circle punch, and a button. The thread was made from thin cs. It seemed to work best if you scored the rosette every 1/4 of an inch.
Had a great time at Free Stamping today! Really felt good about it and got several projects accomplished by customers and demonstrators! Fun day! We also had a great downline meeting this morning and saw lots of fun show and tell! Tonight I went to the Broadway Play "Fiddler on the Roof" and it was excellent-had a busy day!!

Inspired by Nature Card

This card uses the Faux Tile Technique that I saw when I was blog hopping one day! I will give credit to you if you recognize the card! It would also make a very nice sympathy card. I used 4 x 5 Vanilla cs and scored it every 1/2 inch horizontally and vertically. Then stamped the En Francais stamp very lightly with Crumb Cake ink. Then I stamped the flower with Expresso, let dry and covered with Versa Mark, Clear Embossing Powder and then heated it. Add a piece of Expresso cs and mount on Vanilla cs. Then I added a banner and some pearls. A fun card to make!
Enjoy your day! I will be attending the Shopping Suite at the Comfort Inn on Elk Vale Road from 4pm to 9pm today. Lots of vendors! Stop in and see me!!!

Fall Tree Card

Shirrise inspired me to make this card for our club. It was a fun card to make with the triple punch and then use the left overs for the leaves on the ground. We used the oval punch to punch out the tree trunks and used some Bakers Twine, and paper tore the striped paper. We used Olive cs for the base and Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron for the trees.
I hope you are enjoying your day! I am on my way to Woman's Network and then to run some errands!
Remember, the Big Shot offer ends on Friday, November 11th! Congratulations to Carol and Jayne for joining our team!!!

Rosette Scrapbook Page

This is a scrapbook page 12 x 12 that we made this month in club. I made the rosettes scoring at 1/2 inch but we decided it was too thick for a scrapbook page so the club members scored a DSP 1 x 12 on every 1/4 inch. If you make a punched out circle and add some glue and then stick the rosette to it this is much easier to do. Theresa had a lot of good tips for us to used.
12 x 12 Pool Party cs
2 dsp 1 x 12
2 large buttons
2 scallops from Pool Party cs
A strip of vanilla cs
A strip of soft suede cs

Calendar Class

Outside cover

This is the new 2012 Desk Calendar. I put my daughter's picture on the front and then you can also add a picture on each month of the year. It is not really very easy to see but hope you can get the idea of the calendar-26 pages. You can either add the pictures after the calendar is made or I can put the pictures in for you if you have them in order before the order is placed.
