Fabric pennant card

Did you know that Stampin' Up! sells adhesive sheets that are perfect for adding fabric to your projects? It isn't washable but works great on cards. That is what I used to adhere the fabric onto this card before sewing.

I made this card a while ago, sorry some of it is retired now (the DSP in the center pennant and the greeting) but the fabric is still available to order! I used some cardstock that Is definitely looked over, it is the Naturals White cardstock, it comes with all these awesome flecks on it!I got my inspiration from this card... It is on display at the Riverton SU office. Since I live pretty close, I have had quite a few opportunities to visit and if I have time, I always stop and check out the samples! This card also uses the Stampin' Up! fabric! Love it!

Butterfly Wands

I recently had a couple of young girls at my home and I wanted to make something cute with them. I had some of these wood skewers out from another project and thought a magic wand would be fun! I let the girls choose their favorite felt from my stash and help me cut out the butterflies with my big shot. I let them help me pick out some coordinating ribbon and voila! Super simple. I love being the cool neighbor :)

Strength & Hope

I was so excited that Stampin' Up! came out with this stamp set. (It is in the new Summer Mini Catalog) I of course love the images, but on top of that, Stampin' Up! is donating $2 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for each set that is purchased! How cool is that! I decided to feature this set at Stamp Club this month. This is the card we made - I will post the scrapbook pages soon!
I loved the butterflies that were shown in the Stampin Success Magazine with the pearl and rock and roll technique, so I copied them!

If you haven't tried the triple layer punches, you must! They are so fun! We used the new Doily triple layer punch to make these flowers, I just scrunched them up in my hand for a little more dimension.

YW Mother's Day Card

It is awesome being a demonstrator. We have so many awesome resources! I was asked to design a card for the Young Women in our church to make, so I pulled out my trusty Stampin Success Magazine (the one demonstrators receive every month!) and found the perfect card. I changed a few things but it is basically the same card. Thank You Stampin' Up! you are the best.

Wedding Shower Decor

I recently helped with my cousin's wedding shower. I made a few of the decorations, all sticking to her colors. I wanted to decorate this jar and fill it with candy, so I made this tag with the 2 tags die and the big shot, found some black jellybeans at the store and filled it up. It was great because the candy matched the colors - which is all that matters right? I hope so cause hardly anyone ate them but me... so I took home the leftovers, but let me tell you, the jellybeans do wierd things to your system, seriously it would make a great st patricks day prank. LOL! ok sorry if that was too much info... Here is a close up of the tag, everything is from Stampin' Up! except the flowers.

The best part, is that my cousin took the tag and ribbon to decorate a picture frame!
Another decor item I made were these medallions that I hung from the light above the table. There was a black one too, but it wasn't in the picture...

Artistic Etchings

These are the cards we made at stamp club last month. Everyone got to choose their favorite strip of DSP and ribbon. All the cards use the same basic supplies, and I encouraged them to make it their own. It was fun to see all the different card combinations! What card is your favorite?

T-shirt Yo-Yo's

Another reason why I love my Big Shot! My sister asked me to help make a skirt and decorate a shirt for her 2 year old's Easter dress. We decided to cut out circles from the big shot to create the yo-yo's, and I love how they turned out.
