We were shown a project at convention that I just loved.
(I know, I know, there have been A LOT of those!  Why do you think I keep going back?!  LOL)
I am so intrigued when projects are made using things that were meant for something else.  Meaning, the journal project I am about to show you was made using the table setting kit from SU.
AWESOME, eh?!  

Here is the Kit...

Here is a table setting I made with it.  
I was hoping to make my table look amazing this Thanksgiving...until  I remembered that THIS project would be wicked too!
Here's the journal....

I cased the first few pages from the convention project, then finished it off with my own pages.  Now to find photographs to put in and then journal it.

BUT, now I have to order another kit....there are SO MANY MORE things I can create with this kit!!

IT'S HERE!!!!!!!!!


Check out the video here....
133774Envelope Punch Board$24.95

Available to customers beginning September 1, 2013. 

  • It creates totally customizable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes!! (not to mention a million different color and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create!
  • It's super easy to use; it looks intimidating at first glance, but when you see that all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score you'll go crazy (in a good way).
  • It's small and lightweight; It's small and light enough that you could use it while watching a soccer match, at a park, at a friend's for craft night-anywhere.
  • It even has a slick scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes.
  • It's easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don't have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won't lose them!).
  • The price is terrific-especially for a tool that does so much!
  • It will be in next year's annual catalog, so it's here to stay.

Friday Mashup!

This is my second try at the Friday Mashup.
This one took a bit more planning on my part.  Loved the challenge...a true challenge with thinking and planning and trial and error!  :-)

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with using "A-B-C (use elements on your projects starting with the letters A, B, C). "
  2. Create a project using a "1-2-3 card recipe (1 embellishment, 2 Stamp Sets, 3 Colors) ."
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project "A-B-C & a 1,2,3 card recipe. "
So, I chose A (always artichoke), B (baked brown sugar) and C (crushed curry).  For my 1 embellishment (burlap ribbon), 2 stamp sets (lovely as a tree and tags 4 you! and 3 colours (mentioned above)

Here are my cards.  I made two just 'cause!  Both identical except for the saying is in a different place (couldn't decide!!) 

Very fun!!  Loved stamping this morning to get my mind off our guy heading out for his first day of GRADE 3!!!!!  Holy Moley!!!  *sniff, sniff*

Dynamic Duos - my 2nd Challenge

We had a fabulous long weekend away visiting with close friends and family.  It was a nice way to finish off the summer. FINISH???? I can't believe that back to school is tomorrow!
I think I may be in denial, or just so emotional over it that I can't concentrate. Our guys is going into GRADE THREE!!!  It can't be real!
 Here I am "back to the grind" and I am finding that my day has been "full" of NOTHING!!  I can't get things done!  LOL

SO, I thought, lets check out the challenges for this week!  :-)
Stamping is always good when I can't focus...calms me.

...and here is the card that I made.  I laughed so hard when I saw this stamp at convention and KNEW I had to have one in my collection.  HILARIOUS!  I this is my go-to combo with Perfect Plum.  Wild Wasabi!  Just love saying that name.  LOL  
Lots of embossing on this card and it needed a little something...a bow it was!

This has made me a bit calmer today.  Perhaps I will get something done after all!!!
