Stamped Wine Bottle Wall Art

Hey Stampers!

I have a new video for you this month along with a new look on my blog.  Hope you like both.

The video is on a piece of wall art I CASED and created using the Half Full Stamp Set and the STAMPARATUS!   Wooo Hooo!  I finally got mine, and when I did I realized it would be perfect to use on this project.  The Half Full Stamp Set is a carry over from last year’s Holiday Catalog.   The video is a little long, but it is definitely worth the time.   I hope you enjoy making this project as much as I did.

Two items that are not listed in the supply list at the end of this post is a 5 x 7 shadow box frame in black and some washi tape to tack down the edges of your card stock and your letters dies.  Now on the frame, as I show you in the video, you do not need a shadow box frame.  You can use a less expensive $3.00 5 x 7 photo frame if you choose.  Your end product will be just as nice.

Just a reminder that SALE-A-BRATON ends on the last day of this month so if there is anything you have been wanting, but you have been putting of purchasing, now is the time.

Sorry about the glare and shadows in the following photos.

 

 

Here is my video!  Enjoy!  🙂

Party Panda Valentine Treat Box

Hello Stampers!

I’ve been absent and I know it.  I’ve been busy doing tons of other things and not stamping like I should be, but I have managed to create another video tutorial for you.

“What has been keeping me busy?” you ask.  Well…I’ve been busy crocheting these messy bun hats/beanies that I’ve decided to sell in my online Etsy store.  I had a practice run with selling them last weekend at a local indoor garage sale and I did quite well, if I say so myself.  They are the latest rage for people with long hair.  And a few of us with short hair have been known to sport one on occasion as well.  It is easy for me to convert them to a regular beanie without the bun opening on the top and I’ve done that with a few.  My online Etsy store is called FancyforStampinEtc meaning I don’t only fancy stamping, but other crafts as well.  It isn’t totally up and running yet, but it is my goal to have it complete by Tuesday of this week.

But enough of beanies, and on to my video tutorial of my Party Panda Valentine Treat Box.  It has been awhile since I last created a video and it is amazing how out-of-practice I’ve become.  I made quite a few mistakes and one you might notice is…Well I’ll see if you can guess.  In spite of the error, the tutorial is still a good explanation of how to make this cute Valentine for your sweetie. So, I won’t be real hard on myself.  🙂

The Party Panda stamp set is a Sale-a-bration item and is yours FREE with any $50.00 purchase in my online store.  Just click on the link to shop on the right side of this page or on the link at the bottom of this post.

Hope you enjoy the video and you have fun making one of these cute little treat boxes for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day.

Until next time…

Happy Stampin’

Envelope Mini Album

Hello Stampers!

No, I have not fallen off the face of the Earth; I am still alive and well!  The last few months have been pretty busy as you can imagine.  My daughter gave birth three days after my last blog entry and much of my time has been spent admiring her and her partner’s handiwork.  Baby Stella is beautiful if you ask me!  I am totally in love with her. 🙂  In October my mom, sister and brother-in-law visited to see the baby and just last week I was in Salt Lake City for OnStage 2017.  So the last few weeks have been busy.

If you will indulge me for a moment, I want to share a few pictures of the newest edition to my family.  Thank you in advance for humoring me.  I know all Grandmas think their grandchildren are beautiful and I promise I will not make this a habit.  🙂  These are from earlier this month.

Now on to the real reason why we are here.

I created this mini album awhile ago, but I wanted to make sure I shared it before too much more time passes, because I think something like this would make a really good Christmas gift to someone you love…maybe a new Mom or Grandma!  Now you know what I plan on doing with mine.   Both videos run a little long, but I think they are well worth the time.  I don’t go into details on the decoration of each page, but I have included a photo of each at the end of this post with a description of what I used to decorate it.  I hope you like what you see and take the time to make one for yourself.  I think it would be well worth your time.

Enjoy the videos, and if you have any questions about anything related to this project, please email me.

 

 

 

Until next time…

Happy Stamping!

 

 

 

These are the front covers of both albums.

This is the inside of the front cover and the pocket on page 1.

Pages 2 and 3.  On the page 3 on the right I cut a reindeer in gold foil and quartered a foil snowflake for each corner.

Pages 4 and 5.  I made pockets on each page.

Pages 6 and 7.  I used the snowflake dies from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits and the 1/2″ circle punch to make the circles on the right.  The left side is a pocket with a half circle notch cut at the top edge using the 1″ circle punch.  I also cut a foil snowflake in half and glued it over the pocket and cut the center out with the 1″ circle punch.  I used the Winter Wonder and Holly Textured Embossing Folders one each page.

Pages 8 and 9.  A small corner pocket and bands to hold photos/mementos.

Pages 10 and 11.

Daisy Delight Gift Bag and Cards

Hello!

As I mention in my first video, it has been way too long!  June and July seemed to fly by.  We left for vacation in June right after the new Annual Catalog went live and July was spent catching up and anticipating the birth of my granddaughter.  My daughter is pregnant due to give birth to baby Stella in September. I can barely contain my excitement!  Yes, I have three other grandchildren through marriage, a 6-year-old and almost 2-year-old grandsons and a 6-year-old grand-daughter.  This one is a little different.  It is MY baby girl having her OWN baby girl and making me a REAL Nonna!   (Italian for Grandma).  I needed to make some shower favors and complete a few crochet projects I had started for her.  That is all done now.  Now we just wait…..:)

As I also mention in the video, I was inspired by July’s Paper Pumpkin to create this gift bag and cards.  I think I call it a box in the videos, but it is really a bag.  For July’s Paper Pumpkin, I created two different sizes of bags; one for the note cards and one for the 5-1/2 x 4-1/4.

 

 

So here are the videos.  I hope you enjoy them. Before you watch, you need to know that I mis-called the color of navy card stock in the videos.  I said I used Not Quite Navy (a retired Stampin’ Up! color) when in fact I used Night of Navy.  Sorry.  🙂 If you have any questions, please let me know.

 

 

 

 

Hope you enjoyed your visit today!  Until next time…

Happy Stamping!
