Magnolia Blooms Frame

Cheers to Friday, friends! How did your week go? We had a very wet few days with lots of rain and wind, and I loved it! Let’s get down to business with today’s handmade gift I received at our recent demonstrator meeting. This beautiful gift was created by Robin Castagnola. She used the Magnolia Memory Dies and the Hot Air Balloon Punch to create these gorgeous magnolia blooms. If you look at page 39 in the Annual Catalog, you will see these blooms. Love it ~ thanks Robin!

Daisy Lane Frame

Welcome back to a new week, friends, I hope your weekend was grand! Each year my demonstrator group meets in November or early December and yesterday we held our annual Christmas Party with a potluck, shoebox swap, play a silly game, and exchange a handmade gift. This was my gift bag this year, I always change it up, so nobody knows who brought what gift!

Want to see what was inside? I am happy to say that this frame was very easy to put together and I am so pleased with how it turned out. My friend and fellow demonstrator Robin won this gift! The frame is a CASE from the Annual Catalog found on page 23.

Here are some close up pictures of the gorgeous flowers.

DIY Mason Jar Candle Holders

Happy Hump day friends, we are half way through the week!  I wanted to share with you a fun project that is not stamping related, shocking I know, right?!  I saw these on Pinterest and they were so much fun and super quick too.  Well do you need to wait for the glue/Epsom Salt to completely dry.  The only thing Stampin’ Up! on these candle holders were the rope twine.

I made several and lined them up down the center of my dining room table for Christmas dinner.  Everyone loved them and I even sent several home with my SIL.

Home – Gift Exchange

Happy Hump day, friends!  We are half way through the week!  Each year my demonstrator group meets in November or early December and we hold our annual Christmas Party with a potluck, shoebox swap, play a silly game, and exchange a handmade gift.  This was my gift bag this year, I always change it up, so nobody knows who brought what gift!

Want to see what was inside? While I made several of these for gifts back in June, I have been addicted to making the interchangeable “O”. My friend and fellow demonstrator Sheila won this gift!

Home Decor with an Interchangeable “O”

Hello friends!  I have a very fun project that begins with a 5″ x 7″ frame.  I have seen this project made on various sites and thought I’d give it a try.  I will be honest with you that while it was time consuming (I made several), it is also highly addictive!!  Each interchangeable “O” has a magnet on the back as well as on the Thick Whisper White 5″ x 7″ cardstock.

This was a going away gift that I made for a good friend that is moving away…boo!!!  I have a feeling that she is going to love it!

Take a closer look at the Mini Pizza Box. I absolutely love the Share What You Love Specialty DSP and the Make a Difference Stamp Set!

Wanna see what’s inside?

Here are all of the interchangeable “O”‘s that I made.  Many of these were inspired by Lynn Strifert ~ thanks Lynn!

Noel – Gift Exchange

Happy Hump day, we are half way to the weekend!  This past Sunday was my demonstrator group’s annual Christmas Party.  We allow 3 hours for the festivities filled with a potluck, shoebox swap, play a silly game or two, and exchange a handmade gift.  This was my gift bag this year, I always change it up, so nobody knows who brought what gift!

Want to see what was inside? I love this fun technique (Eclipse) and it was very easy to put together.  Turned out great, right?!?!  The only two items used that were not Stampin’ Up! is the white frame and hot glue gun.   My fellow demonstrator friend Sheila won this gift!

CARDSTOCK CUTS FOR THIS PROJECT:

  • Cherry Cobbler: 4-1/4″ x 6-1/4″
  • Whisper White: 5″x 7″ and 4″ x 6″

Window Box Luminary

I made eight of these luminaries for Mr. Wonderful’s party and I am thrilled with how they turned out.  I placed an LED tea light into each one and they sure made the tables look pretty.

These are not hard to make and here are a few step by step photos that I made using a template, but you can go to YouTube and watch the Stampin’ Up! video for the Window Box Thinlits to see how they go together as well as all of the other dies and uses.

  1. Cut two of the basic shape.  If you want to create the intricate cut-outs, now is the time to do so to make a luminary.

2. Snip the tabs off of only one of the pieces.

3. Adhere Tear & Tape as shown on one piece as shown below.  You will also add Tear & Tape to the top tab (not seen in the photo below).  This piece will become the bottom of the box.  

4. Adhere Tear & Tape on the other piece as shown below.  This piece will become the top of the box.

5. Then line up the bottom piece with the top piece (as seen in the photo below).

6. Then gently, adhere the sides together and form the box.
