Thanks Hanging Treat Box

Another school creation!

I did this with a group of mothers for Staff Appreciation Week at Erilynne's school. We made fifty of these projects. We hung the boxes off of water bottles and stuffed them with Crystal Light To Go and candy. Everyone just loved it!

I can't remember where I got the design. Sorry to whomever I owe the credit. Though, I did change it a bit color wise and made it into the Hanging Treat Box.

"All In the Family" Jacob's Ladder Book

I can't believe it has been so long since I have posted! Yikes! So sorry, Stampers!
I'll keep the chit-chat to a minimum and just give you the creations I've been working on lately.
I made these two very cool Jacob's Ladder Books for Erilynne's teacher and room mother at school. Tomorrow [well technically today] is the last day of school and I wanted to give them something to remember the class by. Today the 4K class had a special field trip to Griffen Park where they got to play and had a presentation for the parents. So sweet! I took a boat load of pictures and will put them inside for a remembrance.

Go here to get the directions to do your own Jacob's Ladder Book. Split Coast Stampers is a fabulous resource. I found the directions on this a little hard to comprehend [could be because it is soooo late]. But, when I actually got to making the book, it worked out beautifully. Now it is a cinch!
This is a picture of the unfinished inside. It actually works like an old-fashioned Jacob's Ladder. So cool!

"Wild About You" Clear Evelope Brag Book

Happy Mother's Day to all of you stampin' moms! Hope you had a great day!

Well, I loved that Clear Envelope Brag Book I made a while back so much that I just had to make one for my mother and mother-in-law to celebrate this day with them. This is what I came up with! Erik and I wrote personal notes on the back inside cover to our moms. We then sat down with them and chose recent favorite pictures of family to put inside. They LOVED them!

A Light Unto My Path

Hi Stampers -- Well the demonstrator Boho West Event 2008 that I attended on Saturday was fabulous! I met a great bunch of fellow demonstrators and got all jazzed up with new ideas and techniques. Thank you to all who said a prayer for me with the little Power Tip that I did. The butterflies in my stomache stayed in control and I didn't do or say anything embarrassing... PHEW!

I ended up spending the entire night last Friday making roughly 50 swaps to trade with others, and I came home with some of the most fabulous color combos and layout ideas! Thank you to those who shared their talents!
Here is the swap that I made. I used one of my FAVORITE new sets...A Light Unto My Path. I have a thing for lighthouses. So serene and peaceful. It must come from growing up in Maine near the ocean and Portland Head Light. I just LOVE to visit there. The waves. The rocks. The history. But, I digress......
This card is beautiful, yet quick and easy! Enjoy!

May Flowers - Ginger Blossoms

Hi Everyone!

May is here and with it Spring! I just love watching all the plants come back to life and sprout flowers and buds. So exciting! Though, it has been a little on the cold side of things this week. Not to complain, this is better than all the snow!
Thank you so much for all your patience as I have been undergoing construction. My stamping room is still torn apart and now waiting for paint. Ugh! is going to be so fabulous to have it DONE! Woohoo!

I am headed off to my upline's Stampin' Event 2008 tomorrow. Please pray for me as I am doing a short presentation for over a hundred demonstrators. I am a little nervous....yikes, but on the whole, the day is going to be AWESOME!!! I am currently mass producing a card to swap there. I hope to come home with some fabulous new ideas and layouts that I can share with you later.

I know you must be chomping at the bit to see something new. So to go along with May Flowers, springtime and things that are new, I have created something to make you think outside of the "box" [card or whatever you usually stamp]. Tupper, my husband, has taken to saving all sorts of containers for me. Lately [well, before the construction], I would go downstairs to find some new container on my work table. "What I am supposed to do with this?" I would ask. "I thought you could make something out of it." He would answer. Aww....he is trying to help me create new stuff! He is so great!

O.K., enough mushiness, THIS project is made from an ice tea canister. The top comes off and I am using it as a door prize bin. I was always forgetting a basket and I think this is soooo much better! You can just let your imagination run wild with all the uses: piggy bank, candy container, gift container....your turn!

*Measure the height of your canister and cut the DSP to match.
*Wrap the DSP and mark where it touches to get the circumference.
*Create your embellishment and adhere with Sticky Strip. SNAIL adhesive just is not strong enough for this project.
*Decorate the top of the canister.
*To create the hole in the top, us the Word Window Punch as a template on a scrap piece of paper. Decide the width of your hole [mine is one and a quarter WW Punches. Very exact, as you can see ;-p ]. Place the template over the center and cut with your hobby blade. [Mine did not cut so well, so I added the accent paper to cover the boo-boo. See pictures below.]
