As I said in my last post, I am a chicken lover! (I’ve been told the first step to recovery is admitting your addiction.) So it only stands to reason that I love this stamp set. If it has anything to do with chickens or roosters, it is for me! Especially vintage and antique roosters and chickens. Two former students got me started on collecting them a few years ago. Their names are Matt and Brooke, a brother and sister team. They were both in the same 8th grade class as my son. (Yes, I taught my own children in middle school and I tell them it was equally painful for me as it was for them.) 🙂 They gave me a set of three decorative plates with roosters on them. I hung them in my kitchen, and it has been downhill ever since. That was about 15 years ago, so that is a long time to collect a lot of chickens! My husbands famous words are, “Just what you need, another chicken!”
This chicken set is a Sale-a-braton set. With any $50.00 purchase in my online store, you can get it too.
Isn’t this sweet? I love these little guys, and I’ve created a video just for you so you can make a card just like this one. Hope you enjoy it!
Here are some other FREE Sale-a-bration items you can have when you spend $50.00 in my online store.

Today I am sharing a video on how to make this special Valentine card for the special person in your life. This one is for my husband…lucky guy! 🙂
What makes this Valentine so unique is it comes in a box, and when you remove the lid, the card pops up out of the box.
Adorable! And it is really easy to make.
I hope you enjoy your visit today! Until next time…
Today I am sharing a video for a great little gift idea for this Christmas. I found these 13 oz. liquid hand soaps the last time I was in one of our local craft stores. They were only 99 cents! You can’t beat that! I bought several and came up with a way to decorate them so I can hand them out at Christmas to those people who, you know, you don’t normally give anything to. Every year I usually have one or two guests that I don’t normally have on Christmas day…someone is always alone at Christmas…and giving them a little inexpensive gift is just one of my ways to make them feel welcome. Or, as I mention in the video, I used to give out little gifts to many of my co-workers for the holidays. When you have a lot of co-workers, you can’t spend a lot of money. These would make cute little gifts for something like that too. You watch the video and then you decide what you want to do with these adorable little gifts. I know some teachers that would appreciate one! 🙂
I only go over the decoration of one bottle in the video. You can probably guess from the photos how I decorated the others. I will list the supplies I used on ALL of the bottles, not just the one I do in the video.
If you click on the photo of one of the supply items at the bottom of this post, it will take you directly to my online store. Or, you can just go ALL the way to the bottom of the post and click on the link to order everything you might need to make this gift, excluding the soap bottle. 🙂
Here you go, and I hope you enjoy!
Sorry, there is no printable tutorial for this one. 😦
Until next time…
I have another video tutorial for you today. You can tell that I am still getting over a cold that I got last week. I spent three days on the couch last week and even took a nap on my bed one day. I never do that! Fortunately, I am feeling a lot better but there is still a little congestion.
I got the inspiration for this card and box on Pintrist. I have to admit that I would have never thought of using the Floral Phrases Thinlits and the Botanical Builders Framelits dies for Christmas cards. But I REALLY like the way these turned out. As I mention in the video, the card is decorated exactly as you would the box. So I only go over creating and decorating the box in this video.
I hope to have another Christmas gift video for you in the near future.
Before I forget, check the very bottom of this post to see this month’s special offer from Stampin’ Up! Ooooooo…you are gonna love it!
Hope you enjoy!
