Baby Boy Eclipse!

Posted by on Nov 15, 2017 in 3D, Techniques

This absolutely adorable Eclipse card was a swap I received last week at OnStage, created by Linda Bobb.  Everything on this card is perfect! Are you or someone you know having a baby boy!  Change it to a baby girl by simply chaning the color of the baby onsie! The Eclipse Technique is a technique you must try!  Every month I teach a Technique class and Eclipse is the one I taught in October.  If you’d like to learn new techniques, then you’ll want to come!  I offer three different times/dates for this class so why not check my calendar for more details and plan to come to the next Technique class. Thanks for visiting today!  Happy...

Warmth & Cheer Treat Bags!

Posted by on Oct 30, 2017 in 3D, Christmas, Holiday

Today’s share is a sweet little treat bag made with a 6″ x 6″ piece of Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper (retired).  This is a great way to use Designer Series Paper–make these bags up with whatever paper you have to suit the occasion, add a little treat and ‘voila’, your gift is ready! The clothes pins are stamped with the holly from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set and the stockings are cut out with the coordinating dies.  A little Wink of Stella on the holly and the berries made this project a WOW!  Unfortunately, you cannot really see the sparkle, but it’s there and it’s beautiful! Thanks for visiting today!  Happy...

This adorable Top Hat was another Retreat project!  You can fill it with treats of your choice or magnets like stampers did at the Holiday Escape & Create Retreat.  The hat features the Softly Falling TIEF from the Annual catalogue and the Stitched Felt Ornaments from the Holiday catalogue #144619.
