Wreath again

This is the wreath that my 8 year old granddaughter put together. She took the lollies that were left from class this week, and I helped her make some more. She had lots of fun choosing the embellishments! She was so tickled with her wreath! Thanks for stopping by. Brenda

Wreath Class

In our Wreath Class we had a lot of fun--and created not only pretty wreaths, but a huge mess! lol Love, love our new Simply Scored tool. It makes creating these "lollies" for our wreath so easy. We found that using the Cropadile to make holes at the top of each lollie, and using Baker's Twine to put through the holes and gather the lollies made much nicer lollies than using the glue gun, or the Double sided sticky tape. Stampin Up has such a nice selection of button and brads, that we had a hard time choosing which ones to use! Sue and Renee proudly display their wreaths for us. Sorry that the picture of Sue is slightly blurry. Thanks for stopping by. Brenda

Candy Bar Pull Card

Good morning! Today's post was inspired by Dawn Griffith. Isn't this the cutest thing! It uses grocery bag strips to work the Magic to make the candy bar and the message slide right out! The Christmas tree is from Christmas Lodge stamp set. This is one of my favorite Christmas tree stamps that we have ever had. It has Dazzling Details to give it the sparkle. Much more impressive in real life! Thanks for stopping by. Happy stamping. Brenda

Gum Holder

Today's sample is of a gumholder that we made in the Small gifts class last week. This one was so simple and easy to make. I was inspired by Judy Lynn Morton for this one. I used a small strip of magnet to hold it closed. Love the Christmas designer paper! Thanks for stopping by. Brenda

Small Gifts Class

Good morning and thank you for stopping by today. I want to share with you today 2 of the items that we made in my Small Gifts class last week. The tile on the left was a quick and easy gift to make. We used 6" tiles and stamped on them with Chocolate Chip Craft ink. We used the Hello Doily background stamp as the focal point of the tile. The verse is from the Blessings from Heaven set of stamps. After stamping with the craft ink, we added clear embossing powder and baked at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. My husband made the stands to put the tiles on! I owe the thanks to this project to one of my downline, Rhonda McCutcheon! Thanks for letting me case this idea! The candle uses our silver glitter paper and the Big Shot snowflakes and the Scalloped silver Glitter paper was also done with a Big Shot die! In fact, all the decorations on this candle were done with the Big Shot. (Did I mention that you can get one free if you join my team by November 11th???) Contact me if you are interested.
Happy Stamping! Brenda
