Party Favors

So it's your turn to host Thanksgiving this year. Great! You'll have to clean the house, cook a turkey, make a pie and do a little something special for each guest. How about handmade favors using the Fancy Favor Box die. This box is so fast and easy to make. I spent more time making up the front embellishments than I did putting together the box.

I also include some other designs for making gifts for Christmas. A cute little box that holds a chocolate. Birgit gave me one similar to this and I followed the template and made a Christmas one.

Of course the gorgeous ornament that's on the cover of the Mini Catalog makes an amazing embellishment to any gift and they can hang it on their tree too.

I hope you can come to my Nov. 3 class on Christmas projects. It will be fun and lots of great ideas you can duplicate at home.

Take care and God Bless!


Thanksgiving cards

This card was made at my Marker Club. I showed the ladies how to color and blend using markers and a blender pen.

I think I'll make some more and sell them at the craft fair I'm doing on November 10th. These were really fun to make.

Hope you are having a blessed day! Jackie

Holiday Ornament in Blue

Here's my version of the Holiday Mini Catalog Ornament. Do you like the colors?

Midnight Muse, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla Do you want to learn how to make this ornament? Come to my Christmas Projects Class on November 3rd. 1-6pm. Email me or call to RSVP.
I may make more of these since it was so easy! I used the silicon pad and hot glue. Makes this quick and easy to put together.

I hope you can join me soon!


Christmas tags

Oh I was inspired by something I saw on Pintrest today and so here is what I made:

If you like this tag we will be making it at my Christmas Projects class on November 3rd. Haven't signed up yet? You can do so on my website under events.

Here are some other fun projects I've been doing recently.

This is my first ever easel card. I liked the swirls on the background. I used several different sets and a retired wheel. Those google eyes work great! They fit perfectly into the eyes of the bat.

Here's another Halloween project I did a while back but just got them laminated. (Thanks Flora!)

I made 22 cards (two are the same). This is for my girl scout troop to play at our Halloween party. Yes I stamped each card by hand using markers. Crazy huh? It only took a couple hours and after laminating them I'll be able to use them year after year.

I hope you enjoyed todays projects. Come back again!


Christmas Projects

Hello again,

I've been busy with Girl Scouts lately but today I was able to finish a few projects that I'm offering at the November 3rd class.

Here's some of the things you'll be able to make:

Plus we'll have the ornament to make that's on the cover of the Mini Catalog. Oh and Laura and Diane are also having some projects for you to pick from. There will also be a tags class. TO and From tags so you can make special tags from Santa. I hope you can make it! Please go to my events page and RSVP. Thanks!

Happy National Card Making Day!

I did in fact make some cards today. Thank you cards for the businesses that donated food, door prizes and more to the first Girl Scout Convention for our area.

Here's a picture of them while I was putting them together.

I used mostly Stampin' Up! supplies for this. The Girl Scout Logo is online and the paper is from the Girl Scouts too. Punches are from SU!.

As a Girl Scout leader I do a lot of fun crafts with my troop. Today I was able to share what I do best (crafting) with new leaders and help them learn about SWAPS, earning badges through art, making special gifts on a budget. Not that I really know how to budget but I do try to be frugal with my supplies and use up what I have and not have to buy too much.

Each of the leaders in my class today got to make a swap using the butterfly punch and then add a few beads. Really easy. I also let them use some stamps, markers and blender pens to make a card.

Talking to these wonderful ladies about Girl Scouts was amazing. I thi…
