Watercolor Wonder Crayons are now available!!

Watercolorwonder

Great news! The Watercolor Wonder Crayons are now available for purchase. The Watercolor Wonder Crayons were delayed due to a relocation of the supplier. You can start ordering today!

When you receive your Watercolor Wonder Crayons, you may notice that some of the crayon sleeves feature old artwork on them. This does not affect the quality of the crayons; we simply need to deplete inventory of crayons with the old artwork before we use crayons featuring the new artwork.

Use the following item numbers to purchase your Watercolor Wonder Crayons:

  • 120949 New Color Kit
  • 119802 Subtles
  • 119803 Regals
  • 119804 Brights
  • 119805 Neutrals

Thanks for your patience!

Clear Mount Stamp Case - Notefolio

Foliocandycanechristmasout I just love this greeting from the Tags til Christmas set (W120847 or C121169) and it is so true!!!   I made this Notefolio (made up word?) for a certain someone on my list this year who shall remain nameless.  They are easy to make, inexpensive and will fare well in a purse or tote as the embellishments are all under the plastic cover!!  In the past, I have purchased the metal DVD tins online to make these but the shipping was EXTREMELY high.  I was thrilled to realize that I can make them in our Clear Mount Stamp Cases #119105 and they are only $4.95 for four cases, what a bargain.  You can get them in my Online Store right now.

Foliocandycanechristmasin We will be making another version of this at my annual Holiday Gifts Stamp Camp this Saturday, December 4th in my Stampin' Studio in Sheridan, Wyoming.  You can see the other projects on my Facebook Page, remember to "like" me when you get there!!

If you are in the neighborhood and would like to join us, shoot me an email and let me know that you are coming.  The cost is $25 and I ask that you bring your own SNAIL adhesive.  

1group100 All online orders placed until 11:00pm MST on Tuesday during the Holiday Spectacular sale will be entered in a drawing for a FREE Be A Big Shot At Home Kit.  The November kits went out last week-I have one left and maybe it will be yours!!

Ribbon Flower Pins - Gifts for my Club Gals

Ribbonflowerclubgifts 

Wow, what a pile!!  I have over fifty of these babies in this pile and they are gifts for my local club members.  I love these gals and have been making them goodies this year to say thank you for hangin' with me!!  You can see the other goodies I made for them HERE.

Ribbonflowerclubgifts7 I used our Big Designer Buttons and 1 1/4 Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (notice the Riding Hood Red, I got it off the Clearance Rack for $1.99!!).  I simply ran a stitch up the edge of the ribbon and gathered it into a circle.  I added the button to the middle and a pin to the back.  They can take their pick from a large trifle bowl I have them in on my stamping table when they come for club this week. Ribbonpinback

Jolly Holiday Candy Stick Display

Candysticksgroup Doesn't this look yummy!!!  I filled these skinny cello bags with Skittles and M&M's and created a topper for each of them.  Thanks to Carla for the idea!  I used a variety of stamp sets on the treats and one of them is from the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog, can you guess which one?  I wrapped the container with a strip of Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper 117159 and added the main image using the Jolly Jingles Jumbo Wheel 120864 and my 5 Petal Flower Punch 119880 to create the Poinsettia.  The 5/8 Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon 109054 adds a nice touch.

Candystickcontainerside Here is a side view of it.  I have it on display in my stamp room and everyone wants to eat them!!  Tonight is the first of six stampin' sessions for club week.  I love it when the gals come over to stamp, we always have the most fun and I have some stinkin' cute projects for them!! 

**Do you live long distance and want to be a part of one of my clubs?  Stay tuned as I will be releasing info on my Coast to Coast Stampin' Buddies program very soon.

Scallop Envelope Treat Holder

Scallopenvelopenaugtyperpemintbarkfront The Scallop Envelope Bigz Die can be used for alot of things and I am using it today as a treat holder.  I cut two envelopes with my Big Shot in Real Red.  I cut a little over an inch off the bottom flap of each envelope and glued the three sides together

Here is the side view so you can see how deep it is.

ScallopenvelopenaugtyperpemintbarkI added a 2 x 3 piece of the Candy Cane Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper, folded the front flap down and adhered it with my Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I made a tag with the Tags til' Christmas set (get it in a bundle for 20% off!!!) some Stampin' Write Markers and my Scallop Square Punch

As I was shopping today I found these yummy Peppermint Bark Ghirardelli Squares and my favorite Bob's Mini Candy Canes to fill them with.

Scallopenvelopenaugtyperpemintbark1I am lovin' my new camera!! I am still learning how to use it but it takes great pictures without me having to do anything, even under the fluorescent lighting in my stamp room ....... WAHOO!!  My old Kodak took OK pictures but I spent too much time setting my "studio" up all over the Scallopenvelopenaugtycandycanes house to get the right light and editing them alot to get them to look decent. 

In case you are wondering, I got a Canon Powershot SX130IS.  It will do a ton of cool things but I need to learn how to use if first!!  Thanks for lookin' today and just a little reminder that my Be a Big Shot At Home series of classes is starting this month and you only have about a week left to sign up.  Read all about how you can get a FREE $150 Shopping Spree at the end of the class run!!!

Stampin' Up! Fabric Accents

 

 

 

Fabric accents are all the rage lately and I thought I would try my hand at a couple.  Stampin' Up! has two different packs of fabric in the Holiday Mini Catalog. They are priced at $9.95 each and you get three extra large fat quarters in each pack.  Each piece of fabric measures 18" x 28" so you have plenty to play with.

Winterpostfabric This card was so easy to make and may just be the one I make this year.  I used the Winter Post stamp set and added a folded strip of fabric from our Deck the Halls Designer Fabric Pack (121716) around my 1 1/4" Early Espresso Striped Grosgrain

DeckthehallsfabricCandycanefabric 
 

Fancyfavortagsbutton Here is another project with fabric accents.  I ran the Candy Cane Christmas fabric (121715) through the Big Shot Machine with the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets and the Tasteful Trim die to create the scalloped border on along the bottom of the Fancy Favor Box.  I found an old button covering kit while cleaning a while back so I decided to play with it.  I covered a few buttons with fabric and ribbon and added this little cutie to the center of my focal point.  The Silver Tinsel makes the perfect handle and is also in the Holiday Mini Catalog.

Time is running out to join my Be A Big Shot At Home series of classes.  We will be starting this month.  Sign up for my four classes and at the end of the series, I will give you a gift certificate for a $150 shopping spree.  Find all the details in THIS POST and sign up today!!!
