Mini Treat Bag Thinlit ideas!

This was one item in the catalogue that I purchased first, but sadly I hadn't opened it until about a week ago. Don't be like me and wait that long!  It is soo cute!

I made several samples with this thinlit and it is very versatile especially all the "little bits" in the set.

137547 Mini Treat Bag Thinlit $48.95
For club we made two samples with this thinlit but I shared 4 in total so here they are!

This one was created with the Painted Blooms Designer Series paper and how the thinlit creates this cute little bag.

Then by adding the heart framelit in the middle and adding a window sheet you can make a shaker bag. The heart strip is made with the Silver Foil paper and heart line thinlit.

Now for the ONE CARD I had to create!  I saw this one Splitcoast Stampers from Anne-Marie Jeuken so here is my CASE.

You can see the other pieces of the thinlit set here with the "for you" and the star strip. 

 Also don't forget the amazing Bow Builder punch too!

Wax Paper Resist Technique

Here is the latest technique we tried at my Cardmaker's club last week.  Sorry for the picture quality but my camera is having "issues".  Maybe user error?  That's what I'm guessing.

Well, break out that iron and ironing board that is holding all the dirty or clean clothes in your house.  It's time to craft with it!  

One small fact about me that you may or may not know is that I don't mind ironing.  I iron shirts, pants, skirts and sometimes hoodies but I DO NOT iron sheets or towels despite what my good friend, Allison, may think ;)  I know it's a weird and wonderful fact but it's true.

 I just love the way this technique turned out and it is SUPER easy! One tip though - don't leave your iron on the wax paper for too long or it melts ALL the wax paper onto your shimmer white paper and there won't be a pattern in sight!  Don't ask me how I know this :) Just a few secs is all you'll need!

Thanks for checking in!

Club Create - Canvas Art

Yesterday I was reminded the creativity and amazing spirit of kids! 

I planned to have the kids create a Canvas piece for their room or a gift.   I created this "Seasons" Canvas art piece to as a sample with the Sheltering Tree stamp set. 

 Often they will copy my idea or do some slight variations of my design, but this time they proved me wrong . . . way wrong.

Check out what they created!

Thanks for checking in and have a happy Family Day!

Lovely Amazing You stamp set - A MUST GET!

Hi all

I'm still alive!  I'm treading water here trying to catch up on all the things that have been happening around here but it's not working.  The plan is to be back to regular blogging next week so watch out world!

I just have to share with you this amazing stamp set I saw at Leadership a few weeks ago.  It has finally been released for us to purchase and I'm telling you - YOU MUST GET IT! The sayings are amazing (hence the name) and the FONT!!!

I just love this cute sample they shared with the "back" of the photopolymer stamp as the background (Smoky Slate I believe) and the adorable envelope on the front - super simple!

Plus here are the weekly specials for Feb 10-16.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend and watch for a great Kids camp project we will be creating this weekend.
