Mini Pumpkin basket

Hi there,
Here is one of the projects made at my October club. (we made 3 which i'll be sharing)....
Here are the directions....the box with handle is so cute and can be used for so many different holidays...can you see Easter Eggs? Hearts? etc....

Pumpkin basket (as found on Inkin’ Idaho’s blog)
1. Cut cardstock to 2-1/4" x 5-3/4".
2. Score along the bottom at 1".
3. Score the length at 1-3/4", 2-3/4", 4-1/2" and 5-1/2"
4. Cut on the score lines up to the intersecting score line at a slight angle (to avoid any overlap and it 's cleaner look). Cut off the little piece at the end as shown in the photo.
5. Punch 5 ovals with the Wide Oval Punch, sponge the edges for added depth. I used Pumpkin Pie cardstock and ink.
6. Handle is 6" x 1/2".
Happy Stampin'

Holiday Card Class for October

Happy Friday!

I can finally share the 2 cards the ladies made this month at my Holiday Card class. I had 2 evenings of these projects. Everyone made 5 each of the 2 samples below.

On the cardinal card there is crystal effects to add a touch of elegance. I had each lady bring a cookie sheet so they could take them home spread out since they take awhile to dry....I sometimes wonder what my neighbours think we do in here :)

The second card is a case of a card I found online....I liked the way it was 11" x 3 1/2 . You punch with the scallop circle to create a 'hole' where you put the individual snowman. The individual snowman and the sentiment are raised on dimensionals...Of course every snowman has to have dazzling diamonds so that adds sparkle. Images coloured in with Stampin' Write markers in Bashful Blue, Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie.

Thanks for dropping by,

blog header update

Hi again,
OK, well it was perfect timing as today Patty Bennett on her blog posted on how to make a blog header! I was using a card template and instead I was to go to Multimedia I made it again (took 2 minutes) and then saved it, went into Picaso and croped it to a more blog header size! Easy as pie! It will be fun to change it as the seasons change....I really should have a Fall theme right now as the colours on the trees are AMAZING this year! It seems we've had record sunshine since May and I sure am used to it! I hope the rain stays away! Can you believe on the weather netword I saw today the SNOW symbol for tuesday.....mixed precipitation and since we live on a mountain i'm reallllllly hoping they are wrong! I had the girls try on their winter boots from last year today just in case......2 fit, one to buy a bigger pair. Not bad.

Anyway enough ramblings.....

Happy Thanksgiving!!!! Tomorrow we're having our traditional turkey dinner at my parents so looking forward to it!

Happy Stampin'

hmmmm blog header

Hi there!

Well I'm not sure how many of you view my blog without a feeder but if you come take a peek you'll notice I have a new blog header. I made a card on MDS, saved it to my computer and just uploaded it as my header. Now I realize its quite small but it works! This is a great option if I want to change it more often to suit the season.

Anyway off to play with MDS some more!

Happy Stampin' (and scrapbookin')

Playing with My Digital Studio

I've been missing in action as I've been taking some time to learn more about MDS. It is now available to purchase and I wanted to get more knowledgeable so I've been watching the webinars that SU has provided for us Demonstrators to watch. I'm also finished taking the quizzes and will have my Certification on using MDS. One of the requirements for Certification was submitting to print one digital card that we create on our own. Here is the card I made this evening once the kiddies were in bed.

I have learned SO much from watching the webinars! As you can see from this card I learned how to make the inside page of a card. Also how to LAYER! Lots of embellishments, stamps and layers on this card! I wanted to use what i've learned, LOL! (a bit overboard maybe????)

Anyway I've submitted this for printing and look forward to sharing the real copy in person when I see you soon!

Until next time,
