Something Springy

So, it's snowing outside and I thought I'd post something springy....  These are pencils I made.
I punched from the pendant punch from Stampin Up!, and I also used the banner punch.  Tied it all off with some bakers twine.
 Then I made these bows.  So you know how you always have designer paper left over from whatever project that you have made.  Well, I've been saving them in a folder and here is what I did with them.
 Each have six strips, all are 1 inch shorter than the next layer.  There are three layers of flower and the best way I could find to put them together was my trusty glue gun.  Then a silk flower in the center with a button to tie it off.
Hope you like!

Ahhh, back again.

Hi.  It's been forever.  But, on the plus side, I have been busy.  So, lately I signed up to be a team demonstrator with my upline in Stampin Up!.
So I made a couple of things lately.  Here is the first, I am doing some hot chocolate carafes for my neighbors.  I love that I get to use some straws with this one.
I am also using old retired Stampin Up! paper...

 I wrapped them all in cellophane bags.  I love using stuff I got eons ago.  These bags I got from that magazine with all the cheap things in it, Trading something or other....anyways, it was almost 15 years ago.  I bought a bunch of these bags and I got to use the red and green ones for this.

 Guess being a pack rat is good sometimes.... :)
 Here is the new Snow Flurry stamp set.  I love that the punch matches it.  I used blackberry bliss paper and the new branches embossing folder.  I rubbed the trees in my white ink pad after I embossed it.
 Same embossing folder, only this time I stamped the large tree from the Tree stamp set, names escape me today and I am too lazy to go look it up.  But you know the one I mean.  There are about 7 stamps and its all trees.  Its also the oldest stamp set in the catalog going back over 12 years.... The bear is from the camping stamp set.
 And this one.  All sets are from the Holiday catalog, this tree had the weird antlers in the set, but the trees are gorgeous.  I stamped them in black twice on the background paper, then in color and cut out the third set.  Then I masked a moon and sponged the heck out of it.  Twirled silver thread behind them and popped them up.  I put stickles on the green trees and around the moon.
Last I stamped the All is Calm on the bottom.

Hope you like!

Treats for Retreat

Over at Express the Moment, they had a spring retreat.  I got to make a couple of the treats for them
It started out with these cute little sixlets!  
 And then I put them into clear bags, sealed them and made some little tags to go around them.
 Lastly, I did a little flower punch to tie it all off.
 Then I did these treat bags, they are filled with skittles.  I made little tags for them, and tied them with ribbon and bakers twine.
 I did them in three colors...
Hope you like!

 A couple of months ago, I went to a scrapbook crop.  We each got wooden letters spelling out family.  We chose our own papers, and most everyone there stained their wood deep brown.
I decided to make these for my mom, but she is not into the dark colors, so I took mine home and painted them white.
 Here is some closeups of the letters.

 and an even tighter closeup so you can see the mini buttons!
Hope you like!

Baby Banners

It's baby banner time!  Not for me though.  These are for a lady who makes baby diaper cakes.  She wanted something to help promote her business and she asked me to make some banners for her.  This is my first one, and first banner I ever made!
 I love the little clothes idea, and I had a thing full of little clothes pins that went perfect with them
 I used Zelda Letters from Quickutz.
 I also used the round scallops die from spellbinders.
 The patterns were mine, from my head. :)

 Do you love the baby buttons?

 This second banner is a little more traditional... and yes, I know the letters are spelled wrong on the end, but  I redid them and they are right, but didn't get a pic of them before I sent them to her.
 Here's the letters up close.
 The black and white dots are not brads.  They are half circles, found in the plant section of the craft stores.  they come in every color...

 The letters are Tangerine from Quickutz.

It was fun making it, Hope you like it!
