Here's another picture of the table runner I showed you yesterday. For some reason I'm having a hard time getting good lighting. Oh yeah I forgot it's November and I live in Michigan. LOL Here's the details I promised. I used brown felt to make 16 pennants (SU's exclusive pennant die) The snowflakes are made from light blue (hard to see from the pic) and the large snowflake die from SU. I bought all the materials (or should I say my mom did? Thanks Mom!) from Har Jo's Ben Franklin. I love that store. I guess because it reminds me of the old fashioned 5 & dime. The small snowflake was a Sizzix die that my mom has had for several years. We glued it together using fabric glue and just so you know fabric glue can get old and very clumpy over time so it's best to use new glue to make it go faster. Don't ask how I know. LOL We used the large #2 scallop circle under the large snowflakes. You could sew this together if you wanted, but using fabric glue was pretty easy. Hope you like it. If you are interested in purchasing one of these or even the materials to make your own please feel free to contact me.
We're having a snow day here so maybe I'll be back later with something else to share.

Speaking of catching up. Here is the pattern I had promised you a couple of weeks ago for the magazine box type card holder. Sorry it's taken me so long to post it. I actually had it done, but it was at the bottom of my "to do list" pile. Hopefully you can understand what I did here. Start with the size of each piece of cardstock and go from there. If you have any questions refer back to this post or drop me an email.

I have to say that I had so much fun creating this cute little box. Don't you just love it? Again I say there is just something about that Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette together. I think it feels sort of vintage Christmas maybe? Not sure, but I know I like it. This is one of the items we'll be making at my Christmas Gifts class. Wanna come? Look for details soon.
I've got to run. I just found out I need to go help my dad at the hunting lodge. Glad this is the last of it. I'll be back later with more I need to share before I head to Chicago early tomorrow morning.

I'm off now. Frank and I are going to a movie tonight since our anniversary is tomorrow. We don't do things like this very often. He's usually not home from work very early and let's face it, I couldn't go to a late show. I'd be sleeping no matter how good it was. LOL He was sent home early from work today--something about parts not coming in for the tractor he was working on. UPS lost them. UPS didn't loose my SU order. It just arrived a few minutes ago. Now the choice, get ready to go or go through the box of goodies. Hmmmm let me think.........................

Probably more info than you all needed to know, but I thought I'd catch you up a little. Oh and did I mention that I taught 2 World Card Making Day classes during this two week time frame? Yes, I did and if you come back tomorrow I will show you the cards we made. I just can't do another thing tonight except go put some ice on my wrist and get some sleep. See you all here tomorrow when hopefully things calm down a little.

I'm sorry the picture here is so blurry. Not sure what's up with my camera today. This card is actually quite pretty in real life. I stamped the pumpkin on some Shimmery White cardstock and colored in with ink pads and aqua painters. Colors: Choc. Chip, Certainly Celery, Tangerine Tango, Haiku DSP, Autumn Harvest stamp set.
Here's Frankie Boy! Ok, my Frankie Boy doesn't quite look like this, but I do think this card is cute. There have been lots of different versions of him floating about in the stamping world and this happens to be my version. He's made with various SU circle punches. Colors: Old Olive, Lovely Lilac, Basic Black, Whisper White, Basic Gray
Yes, I dabble in the jewelry world a little too. This is a jewelry set I actually made on Labor Day. The beads are beautiful glass beads that you have to see in person to really appreciate. I made two sets of these so that I could feel like I could sell one set and keep one for myself. LOL If you would be interested in purchasing this set, please contact me.
This is probably my most favorite project as of late. I got my brayer out and several colors along with some sponges and this is the result. I followed Dawn Griffith's awesome tutorial on this. Isn't it preeettty? Makes me want to go and catch a sunset. Colors: Choc. Chip, More Mustard, Whisper White. Ink Colors: More mustard, Pumpkin pie, Bravo Burgundy,Chocolate Chip.
