Gumballs For You!

Here is one of the Valentine cards that we made at the Valentine Stamp Camp Fundraiser for New Hebron Christian School. It's one of my favorites! I just love this new stamp set, whether you use it with the treat cups or the 1 3/4" circle punch, I think it turns out cute either way! We had a great turn out, 34 stampers! and half were kids. And although my stamps and some of my inks had the marks to prove it, everyone had a good time and really that's all that matters when it's all said and done.(:

What did I use?

Stamp Sets: Something Sweet, Tiny Tags
Cardstock: Whisper White, Real Red, & Basic Black
Inks: Real Red, Basic Black
Other: Black Gingham Ribbon,
Heart to Heart, Small Word Window, My Way, 1/2", and 1 3/4" punches

Remember to let me know if you'd like to purchase anything from SU and if you spend $50 when you order from now until March 31 you get a FREE item from our Sale-a-Bration Flyer! Have a great day and come back and stamp a little longer with me.

Sale-A-Bration Blog Tour Stop # 21!

Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts SAB Blog Hop, each blog will be featuring different products from the free items available to you when you order during Sale-A-Bration. If you are traveling forward in the blog hop you just came from Heidi's blog Running w Scissors Stamper. She did such a super job showing the stamp set "Things I Love". What a great variety of projects, Heidi! I will be showcasing the stamp set "Very Thankful". It is the Ronald McDonald stamp set for this year and every time one is purchase SU donates $2.00 to Ronald McDonald House Charities. It can be found on the very last page of the big catty. In case you didn't know this year Stampin' Up! will be letting you pick from a limited list (on the last page of the SAB brochure) of stamp sets from the big Idea Book and Catalog and this one just happens to be on the list. There are also 6 wow products (stamps, a punch, and paper) in the SAB brochure available only through March 31st, 2010.*****Don't forget to check back after January 18th for the how-tos on the different projects I created.
The first couple of projects features the Turtle stamp and the Little Boy w/heart stamp. I chose to change the stamps a little bit. The turtle stamp had a "thank you" at the base of the turtle and I cut it off and mounted it on the side of the wooden block so I didin't have to use it all the time. Also I did not color in the "thank you" on the little boy's heart, but instead wrote "I love you" on the heart. The turtle box is made from the SU die Bitty Box and holds a Giradelli chocolate perfect! The little boy is covering a flat sucker.
The next 3 cards are "Thank you" cards. This is a pretty card using the peacock stamp and also one of SU's new punches that you can get for FREE w/ of $50 purchase. How fun!
This card is pretty much a CASE from the card shown in the big catty. I just love this color combo. Old Olive DSP, Chocolate Chip, and Kraft for the cardbase.
Last just a simple little "Thank you". No bells or whistles just a little thanks.
Next on the blog hop is Heather's blog, Candle with Two Ends. She will be showing you projects created with the stamp "Vintage Labels" (one of my favorites). So hop on over and see what she has instore for us. I hope you enjoyed seeing the projects made with the products that you can get free with a $50.00 purchase during Sale-A- Bration.
Contact your demo to find out how.
What's that you said, you want some Blog Candy! Ok leave me a comment and the winner will receive the "little turtle box and sucker". How's that. Hey, thanks for hopping with us this weekend and come back and "stamp a little longer" with me.

Throughly Modern Altered File Folder

How fun is this! I love these file folders that Stampin' Up has right now. You get 12 of them for $10.95. This is not my original idea and I'm sorry but I can't remember who came up with it, all I know is I found it in a demo forum. If I figure it out I'll let you know.I didn't have directions, just pictures to look at, sorta like the ones you see here of mine. Don't you think this would make a nice gift or maybe a super class project?
So can you figure out how to make one by looking at mine? I bet you can.
I did add a few more do dads just to make it funner! If you want to order any of the folders, I'd be happy to take care of it for you, just let me know!

Fraying Ribbon...

A few of you have ask to know how I frayed my ribbon for the mini clipboard, so here it is...Start by cutting a piece of ribbon the length you want...
Cut the edge off...
and start pulling small lengths of it apart...
until you get as much as you want...
to tie onto whatever you want. It's pretty simple. Congrats again to Lisa Naples on the blog candy win and I'll ship that out to you on Monday, Lisa! Hey, hope everyone has a great weekend , and come back soon so we came "stamp a little longer".(:
