Scallop Circle Punch Santa

Ho! Ho! Ho! Isn't he just cute! Hey there, sorry I haven't posted in awhile, but there has not been much time for stampin'. We are still in the fields! But I think we can finally see the end of the tunnel. Just two more fields of corn and double crop beans and we are done!!! at least for awhile. I was on SCS last night and was looking at some of the Santas people were making with punches so here is my version. Check out my gallery to see what you need to make him.

Tonight's workshop goodies

Chapstick holder/ door prize

Inside of holder

Scallop Punch Medallion Card

Snack Size Hershey Bar Treat Holder. I CASE'd this from Angie Kennedy here:

Same card, but oops I forgot to thread my ribbon through the holes and I don't know how to delete it.
This is the other project everyone got to make and take home with them.

These are the little DSP box bags I gave to my hostess tonight. Then I showed everyone how to make one and gave it away as a door prize. Gotta love that Crop-a-dile. This project is a good way to sell it for sure! Love, love, love this paper! If you want directions how to make these Diana Gibbs came up with the idea. Here is her blog:

Well needless to say, I was kept busy today go-for-ing around so I didn't get to Joann's to buy fabric! So I took another spider jar kinda filled with the same stuff as the one pictured a couple posts back. I did add some of the spider peppermint patties and some other goodies. We had a good time. Don't get to see some of my relatives on my dad's side very much anymore.
We've got a family reunion tonight and a silent auction. I'm trying to decide what I want to take. I'ld love to be able to do a banner using the BS but I don't know if I've got time to get some material since the guys are still in the fields. So it may have to be another Spooly Spider Cookie jar. Check back later to see what I decided to take. Have a nice day!

Quick and Easy Wedding Invitations

Here is a sample of the wedding invitations we made for my niece today. It has three layers. The top layer is vellum, next layer is Very Vanilla, and the third is Bravo Burgandy. The couple is stamped on the vellum. We were able to make 3 of each layer out of one piece of cardstock and vellum. Bottom layer messures 8 1/2" x 3 5/8" in length, middle layer 8" x 3 5/8" and top layer 7 1/2" x 3 5/8". When cutting the cardstock in thirds I did have to cut a little off the last one of each piece. When you do it you'll understand. This invitation will fit inside a business size envelope. Used the stamp set "To Have and To Hold" and Burgandy grosgrain ribbon. We made 130! It took us four hours including a cake break. (It was also my niece's birthday.) I didn't think that was bad at all. She loved them. I was happy that she loved them!

Hi ladies,
I've been pretty busy lately. I've been trying to figure out my niece's wedding invitations. I'll try and post what I come up with tomorrow. They are going to be very simple. Simple is good!

World Card Making Day

Some of the snacks we had. I also had a friend who sells Tastefully Simple make some samples for the ladies. Even though she had broken her foot the week before, she still made us some goodies to try and her daughter was kind enough to bring them by for us. Thanks Sherri and Christi. They were wonderful. I just love Tastefully Simple!

I made 34 of these little baskets and everyone who came got to take on home as a thank you for coming to stamp with us.

These are the 5 projects I had them make. They did make 2 spiders. Some of the ideas are cased from some sidelines of mine and from the SU sight or SCS's. Thanks for stopping by.

Hello, sorry it's taken me so long to post about our event, but I've been pretty busy helping out at a little shop I work at part time and helping the guys farm. The event was a success. My downline (Amanda) and I decided on 4 cards and 1 3-D item for the ladies to make. So they could make a total of 10 things if they wanted. We charged $1.00 for each project. Now some of you may think that's too cheap, but we just wanted to have a good time and maybe get some new customers. We had a total of 30 show up. I made 34 of the little BS baskets! Just enough! We had a basket full of goodies that we raffled off to help pay for the room, a couple more raffles, and 8 door prizes. Everyone had a good time and we even got a few orders.
