Curvy Keepsake Pumpkin

Well it's Friday and hopefully for a lot of you it means an extra long weekend.  I know I'm really looking forward to it.

On page 11 of the NEW HOLIDAY CATALOG there is a Thinlits die set called Curvy Keepsake Box.  I wasn't sure if I would purchase this because there was so much in the catalog that I wanted, but after seeing how cute it was I added it to my order.  Those that ordered earlier than I did always do such a good job of enabling those of us who wait a little while before ordering when the demo pre-order period starts.  I finally got around to using it this morning.  I might have too many new toys right now so it's taking me awhile to get to all of them.....just sayin', but that is just between us here. ;)

Isn't it just the cutest?  It's finished size is 2-1/2" x 2-3/4" x 2-1/2"  It will hold little candies or mini candy bars perfectly.  I stamped on it with the Work of Art stamp set.  The little tag is part of the Thinlits die set.  I then stamp the For You from the Around Array stamp set and punched it out with the 7/8" scallope circle punch and added it to the tag using a Dimensional.  From the Fall Fun Framelits I cut out the little leaf in Mossy Meadow and it matches up perfectly with the leaf from the Autumn Wooden Elements.  If you remember I used one of the other leaves in my Fall Wreath card earlier in the week.  I just added a little of the Monomulti Liquid Glue to the back of the wooden element and then attached the leaf.  I wanted to be able to open the box without having to until the tag so I punched a hold in the top and added the tag and the leaf using some of the Burlap Ribbon.  I cut the edge off the ribbon and just pulled on the fibers to be able to use them to tie the tag and wooden element on.  There are so many other cute ideas floating around with this die set and I hope to make some and share here on my blog in the coming weeks.  

 I had some questions about this notebook that I posted last week.  Below you will find a couple of pics that will hopefully answer your questions.

This shows the inside.  I made a little pocket in side and to make the scallop I used the Large Scallop Edgelit.  I only glued it on the bottom.

 Here is the notepad that I used.  It was just a cheapie scratch pad, but you could do this with almost any small notebook.

And last, but not least I want to share a cake I made for today.  This cake is for a young lady who is a niece of my good friend Deb.  Deb is the one that lost her dear husband a year ago today to the horrible disease of cancer.  He was only 50 years old.  It just so happened that Eric passed on Hannah's birthday so Deb wanted to do something extra special for her to make the day a celebration.  The family will be celebrating not the passing of Eric, but the memories of the life he lived and also they will be celebrating Hannah as well.  I wish Deb and her family many blessings this day and may the God of all comfort and peace give them this day to rejoice that Eric lived and to celebrate the 14th birthday of Hannah.  Many hugs to the Herzog family.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend.

Ahhhh......... seems like it should be Friday, but it's only Wednesday.  It's been a long week, but the weekend is coming.  My dad had 3 doctor appointments this week; two yesterday and one today.  The good news is all the things they were testing him for came back negative and the symptoms he was having have disappeared and he is feeling great.  No cancer or anything else.  His oncologist gave him the all clear and will see him in another 3 months.  Praise God!  Such a relief, hence the title of my post today.

After I got home today I wanted really bad to take a nap.  You know that feeling when your nerves start to relax even though you didn't think you were nervous and then you want to sleep?  Well instead I headed to my office and worked on business this afternoon.  I even got a little stamping in as well.  Here is the project that I have for you today.

 This is a candle holder made from a tuna fish can and clothes pins.  My daughter had made a bunch of these for a graduation party for a friend and when the party was done I snatched them up of course.  I made one for the 4th of July, but I can't seem to find where I posted it or if I did post it.  I added a 1-3/4" strip of Color Me Autumn DSP (Holiday Catalog) around it and then tied some of that luscious Blackberry Bliss Ribbon around it.  I punched a 2-1/2" circle punch from Hello Honey and sponged it with Hello Honey and some Tangelo Twist.  The little ghost, pumpkin and leaves are from a new set (Holiday Catalog) called Fall Fest.  This set comes in Photopolymer and has matching Framelits.  I applied everything to the circle using Dimensionals.  I still thought it needed some sparkle so I added a little Dazzling Details on the leaves.

Here you can see what it looks like from the top.  The little glass tealight holder was purchased at Walmart.  These make very inexpensive decorations, centerpieces or even to give as a little gift.  I thought this turned out pretty cute.  Hope you enjoyed it.

I want to share one more thing tonight.  My last class we did a One Sheet Wonder project and the ladies loved it.  I talked them through the cutting that night and then I promised I would post the template so here it is.

Here is the Original Project.  Now that I've typed all this Blogger is acting up and I'm really hoping I haven't lost everything because at this point I'm not seeing the pics I have in this post.  Grrr....I hate when that happens.  Well I'll give it a shot and hope for the best.  Oh and one last thing.  There were questions about the notebook I shared the other day and I will try and get that answered tomorrow and post some pics showing exactly what I did.

Hello Fall Wreath

The weather here today feels like anything, but Fall.  I'm actually glad.  I feel like we haven't had much summer and today it finally kicked in gear and we are in the 80's with some humidity.  Can't say I'm awfully fond of humidity; well really not at all if I'm being honest, but this kind of weather makes our pool much more useful.  I love to be able to use the pool.

This wreath was made with the new set Wondrous Wreath and it will be available in the Holiday Catalog that makes it's debut this Friday, August 29.  Once again this set has so many possibilities.  Change the colors for whatever season we are in.

The bow on the wreath looks red, but it actually is Cajun Craze.  The colors on the wreath are Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie and Garden Green.  I added some of the sequins from the In Color Sequin Assortment.  I used the Coastal Cabana, but as you can see they really compliment the Garden Green.  I love how our embellishments are so versatile.  The little wooden leaf is from the Holiday Catalog as well and I color it using the Pumpkin Pie ink pad.  I added little veins with the Chocolate Chip Stampin'Write Marker.

Well that's it for now.  I'm not sure if I'll get time to post something for tomorrow or not.  I have to be with my dad for his doctor appointments tomorrow.  He has two tomorrow and then one on Wednesday so it will be a busy couple of days.  If you would say a prayer for my dad that his tests will give us some answers and that his treatment will be an easy fix, we sure would appreciate it.

Kraft Cardstock Notebook

Well we made it to Friday.  What does the weekend hold for you?  Probably not much around here.  Frank works every Saturday so we very seldom get to go away, but hoping that this will change sometime in the near future.  When he's working it's always a good time for me to stamp.  I didn't get much of that in today because I had a cake to make for today, but I have a project for you today that I made yesterday.

When I saw the new Kraft Cardstock in the new catty I knew I had to get some.  It's a nice cardstock weight, but it's different than the Crumb Cake in color.  It's the color of a paper bag.  I took a notebook out of my stash and went to work and this is how it turned out.

Ain't it purrtay?  The pieces I used on this were actually in my scrap pile.  I had colored the flowers back when I first ordered the Blendies.  The Blackberry Bliss was an oval that I had cut a piece from the Chalk Talk Framelits out of.  I stamped the Kraft Cardstock with Gorgeous Grunge and Perfect Pennants.  The words are from the Perfect Pennants stamp set as well.  I thought I might give this as a gift, but now that I've made it................well you know how that goes.  LOL!
Well enjoy your weekend!

Joyful Christmas Poinsettias

I cleaned up my stamping area yesterday and I had a little pile of things that were started, but not any completed projects so I started with my pile and here is what I came up with.  I'm still in summer mode myself so don't get worried, but wouldn't it be nice to have your cards done so that when Christmas does get here all you have to do is address and send?  I thought so.  Well here is a couple of idea for you using the set Joyful Christmas.  This set was in last years Holiday Catalog and is on a carryover list that is still available until August 28, so don't miss out on this great set.  I just love poinsettias.  I used the Blendies on these and I know I probably didn't do them justice, but I think I didn't do too bad. 

Looking at this picture I see that my lighting doesn't seem to be very good.  The base layer and the leaves are Soft Sky, which is a light color, but this picture it looks more faded out.  Sorry about that.  For some reason I struggled with getting the Night of Navy to blend well on this, but like I said it's not a very good picture.  The embossed background on here is a new embossing folder that will be out in the new Holiday Catalog.

I used the Cherry Cobbler Blendies on this one and some of the new Satin Silver Ribbon.  I just love blues and silvers for the holidays.

I wanted to show you as well today something I also did yesterday when I was cleaning.  I organized my collection of Framelits.  My good friend Vicki had given me the case you can see in the back of this box and some of the magnet sheets for storing the Framelits.  I really like this idea and the box will be great for taking them on the go, but for working here at home I was having to dig through the pile so I ended up buying this little plastic box at Target and it works great for storing the magnet sheets upright and I can put the storage box in behind so it is ready for taking my Framelits with me as well.  I then used my label maker and made labels for each set.  Now I can quickly flip through them and find the Framelit set that I need.  Cool huh?

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Halloween?

I know most of you are probably saying, "Halloween already?  Summer's not over with yet."  I totally agree, but when new Holiday Catalog products come out one has got to play a little and besides it will be here before we know it and I'm determined to be ahead of the game this year.  You may even start to see a little Christmas as well.

Here is the card I made using the same set from yesterday's card.  It's called Holiday Home and comes in Photopolymer which is really great because you can see through it and it make it easier for creating scenes like this.

Colors are Pumpkin Pie (of course), Basic Black, Whisper White and Hello Honey.  I colored the house with the Blendies and to get the leaves all the different colors I used our regular Stampin'Write Markers directly on the stamp.  Did you notice the new Lucky Stars Embossing Folder that I used on the background?  You can find this new stamp set along with the matching Framelits and Embossing Folder in the new Holiday Catalog.  If you are customer and have placed an order in the last six months you should be receiving one in the mail.  If you haven't received one, but would like to please feel free to contact me.  Just drop me an email at
I'll be placing an order in a few days so if you'd like to order please let me know.  You can order from the Holiday Catalog on August 28 when it goes live.
Thanks for stopping by!

Monday, Monday, Monday...........

Well today was Monday.  Seems no matter how hard I try Mondays are just a hard day for me, but we are almost through it.  Yay!  Something that I try and share every Monday on my own personal Facebook page is one of my obsessions, passions, likes....I don't know really what to call it, but what it is is little hedgehogs.  I think hedgehogs are so cute and I just love them.  I've looked into getting one for a pet, but they are a lot of work and that is something I'm not willing to do at this stage in my life so I have decided to admire them from afar.  So on Facebook I post what I call Happy Hedgie Monday!  Some people have asked me why and I really don't have an answer other than hedgies make me happy and I feel like Monday can use as much happiness as possible.  I've decided maybe I should share here as well, so today becomes the first Happy Hedgie Monday on Renee's Rubber Stamping Ramblings.

I just pick these pictures up randomly on the net and share them.   Not sure why this little guy has mini colored marshmallows all over him, but I thought this was cute.  Here's wishing you a HAPPY HEDGIE MONDAY!
Now onto my project for today.  I got my new Holiday Catalog goodies on Friday so I've played a little bit and wanted to share this card with you.  It's using a new stamp set called Holiday Home and guess what?  It has matching Framlit Dies to cut these little houses out.  How cool is that.  This set has so many possibilities starting with Fall and running right through winter and Valentine's Day.  You will be seeing a lot more of this set as time goes on.  It will be available for purchase on August 28.  I colored the houses in with the Blendies.  Notice how there isn't marker streak lines from coloring?  That is one thing I really like about the Blendies.  The background paper is from some new DSP that is in the Holiday catalog as well.

Well I've still got lots to do yet tonight so I better get going.  Thanks for stopping by!

Yes, No or Maybe So?

It's a rainy, cold, damp Saturday in the Thumb of Michigan.  I hate days like this, but hoping the sun will shine tomorrow.  Hope you all are having a good weekend.  We are just hanging out inside the house today.

I made this card and I'm not sure how I feel about it.  Can't decide if I like it or not, but it's what I have to share today so I guess you are stuck with it.  LOL!

 The set used here is Choose Happiness.  I masked the flower to allow the leaves to look like they were coming from behind the flower.  If you've never masked before, here is what you do.  Stamp you image on a piece of scrap paper and cut it out.  Copy paper works best because it is thinner than cardstock or better yet if you stamp it on a post-it note it's even better because then you have the sticky on the back to hold it in place when you stamp the leaves.  Then take you same image and stamp it on your project.  Now take your scrap that you've cut out and place it over your image on your project.  Now ink up the leaves and stamp right over the scrap piece of paper.  Viola!  Now your leaves look like they are coming from behind the flower.  Easy Peasy!

And here's another project that I did some time ago.  It is just like the one I did for my July class, but different colors and papers.  I used the lovely Gold Soiree DSP for this project and colored the flower in with Old Olive Blendies.

If you have any questions please let me know.  Thanks to those who stop by here and special thanks to those who leave comments.  They mean so much and I appreciate your time in doing so.

Thanks very, very, very, very Much!

Well it's finally the weekend.  I've had a busy week and I'm looking forward to not having any real plans this weekend.  I really hope that the weather is good.  They are talking some scattered showers, but hopefully they won't be scattered here.

The news this week of the passing of Robin Williams was really so sad.  He made us laugh for years and we hoped it would be many more.  I think we all felt like we knew him.  He seemed like such a fun loving guy, but as so many others he was fighting battles that most cannot understand.  Depression is hard to deal with.  I have dealt with it off and on for 23 years.  Not to the point where I would take my own life, but to the deepest of dark places at times.  Feeling hopeless is hard, and yes even Christians can feel that way. It is so misunderstood and to hear someone say, "well just get over it" or "you don't have enough faith", really makes me angry and sad.  It's not that simple.  At one time I thought maybe I didn't need medication and I had a doctor say to me, "if I told you that you had high blood pressure and needed medication for it, would you take it?"  Well of course I would.  He said this is no different.  From that moment on I knew that I would take medication for it for the rest of my life if need be, but sometimes medication can't completely help.  Our brains are like any other organ, but even more complex.  I don't pretend to know what Robin Williams felt and I don't pretend to have all the answers on this subject, but I do know that we need to reach out with compassion to those around us because you just never know what kind of battle someone is in. 

So today's card is a tribute to Robin..........Thanks very, very, very, very Much!  Thanks for the entertainment, the tears, the laughter, and for the memories.  We are so sorry you left us.  I don't know anything about his beliefs, but I do know that as a Christian myself I have that hope and I hope that Robin knew the Lord and one day we will see him again.  I know heaven is going to be awesome enough, but can you imagine Robin Williams for extra entertainment?  LOL!

I know this post may have been a little different today, but I guess that I just needed to share a little.  I'm a very open person and just maybe something I've written in this post will help someone.  If it's you, then I'm glad I took the time.  Please know that if you ever need a friend I'm here.
Blessings to you all!

Box Fold Card

Hey peeps!  I know it's been a couple of days since I posted.  Still lots going on with my daddy and we don't have a diagnosis yet.  Praying it's not anything bad, but they have to rule out all the really bad stuff first.  He is having a biopsy on Tuesday and then we still won't know anything more for a few days after that.  We just keep trusting the Lord.  Frank got a good report at his annual cancer checkup.  No signs of the cancer returning and he's in good health.  We are so thankful and praising God.  I'm doing ok although I am dealing with some fatigue, but I keep plugging along.  It felt good to get back in my stamp room after being away from it for a couple of days.

What I have to show you today is from a tutorial I found over on SplitcoastStampers.  I watched the video and thought I'd give it a try.  It's something a little different.  This card folds up like you would fold a box up.  You know under/over, under/over?  So without further ado.......

I put some punched out confetti inside so that when the recipient opens it, it will fly out.  How fun huh?  The inside Strawberry Slush piece is actually a card from the All Occasion Project Life Kit by Stampin'Up!  I've used the current hostess set Hello There once again on this card.  See I told you that you need to host a party so you too can own this adorable set.  Colors here are Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush.  The DSP is from the All Abloom DSP stack.  That stack is so cute and is only $6.95 for 48 sheets that measure 4-1/2" x 6-1/2".  The punched flowers are punched using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

An update on the Blendie holders.  My dad has some of them cut out and has redesigned a little so that we can get it in a 12" box, which will really save on the shipping.  I will be contacting you shortly with all the details.  Dad has several made.

Well thanks for stopping by!

Hello There Hostess!

As most of you know I deal with Fibromyalgia and a few weeks ago and had a terrible flare up and ended up going to the doctor.  Well after a shot and some meds I was feeling better and have been on the upswing the last couple of weeks....just feeling great.  Well, I should have known it wasn't going to last for long I guess.  I could feel it coming on last night, but thought that with some rest I'd be ready to go this morning.  Such was not the case, I went about with my routine.  I went for my morning walk and well let's just say I didn't go as far as I usually walk and it felt like I was going up hill both ways.  I got back and thought a shower would do it.  Took my shower and then got started on a cake order I had for today.  It was all I could do to get through.  I'm just exhausted feeling, but I'm going to remain optimistic that I will feel better tomorrow.  Here's hoping and praying.

Well here is the cake that I made and I felt like I was making it in slow motion.  Thankfully I double checked the spelling on the name because I had made this young ladies graduation cake several years ago and spelled her name wrong and ended up going to her dad's house to fix it.  Silly me!

This is the card I squeezed in today as well.  Something simple, but simple is good too.  Not every card needs to take a long time to make unless you want it to.

I used two of our new In Colors for this card.  Hello Honey and Black Berry Bliss.  The Hello There is from the hostess set Hello There.  Not a surprise there is it?  The star is from the set Be a Star stamp set and cut out with the Star Framelits and the little stars I made using the Decorative Mask Hearts and Stars.  These are really easy to use and super inexpensive.  You get the stars and the hearts for $2.95.  There is another set called Dots and Strips as well.  I used Sponge Daubers to sponge the ink on the mask.  The Hello Honey piece was a leftover piece that I had used the Deco Labels Framelits on, so no waste with that piece of cardstock.  I colored the Rhinestones using the Wisteria Wonder Dark Blendies Pen.  The little heart is popped up on a dimensional.  The background is the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.

So that is it for tonight.  Time to relax with my hubby for a bit.  Tomorrow will be a busy day.  I have to take my dad to Bay City for a PetScan and then we have Bible school in the afternoon.

HOT Glue Dot Fun!

I had some fun a couple of days ago trying out the Blendies with some hot glue.  I scribbled on my SU! Silicon Mat with the Blendies and then squeezed hot glue onto the color.  When it was dry I could easily peel the glue dots up.  Here's a pic to show you what I mean.

It will stain your mat if you don't clean it off right away.  As you can see I cleaned right away with all of them except for the Melon Mambo ones that I did last.  Oops!  I haven't tried it, but it still might come off a little.  I used a bit of rubbing alcohol when I did the others and it came right off.  The Blendies came right off of my PJ top too using some rubbing alcohol. (Don't ask) LOL!  Anyway, if you mat gets stained it is no big deal.  It still works great as a non stick surface and it saves your table or counter top.  I don't think something like this is expected to stay looking new.  If it does then that means you aren't having fun! *Ü*

Here is the card I made using them.  Cute huh?  I used the set Amazing Birthday.  This is such a cute set and after I saw what Shelli (Stampin'Up! Owner & CEO) did with it at convention I knew I had to have it.  Shelli is amazing like that!
Amazing Birthday Clear Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!It is so much more than a birthday set.  Stay tuned for more projects using this set.  I haven't begun to play with it yet.  Oh and BTW I adhered the hot glue dots with some Tombo Mono Multi Glue (the green cap glue)  It worked great!
Lastly I thought I'd share a pic from my neighborhood.  I took this the other day on my morning walk.  It just seemed so pretty with the wildflowers, the green field of beans and sugar beets and the windmills in the background.  Truly some of God's beauty going on here.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to sharing with you tomorrow.

A Little Early Christmas

I know many of us don't like to hear it, but Christmas will sneak up on us quicker than we like so today I'm going to share something with you that I made last Christmas, but the great thing is that most of the products used to make them are still available for purchase.  The only things that aren't are the DSP and the little Frosted Flurry Embellishment, but I'm here to tell you that there are new things coming in the upcoming Holiday Catalog that will work for those two things.

 I made these as gifts for my daughter to give to her co-workers for Christmas last year  In this picture you can see that they are back to back.  The stamp set Festive Flurry and the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies, while not in any catalog are still available and you can still get them as a bundle.  You can make beautiful ornaments, cards, scrapbook pages and so much more with this stamp set and dies.
  • Wood mount (131778) is $39.95
  • Clear Mount (131781) $29.95
  • Festive Flurry Framelits Dies (132193) $24.95
  • Wood Mount Bundle (133284)  $54.95
  • Clear Mount Bundle (133285 $46.95
As far as we know right now these will only be available until August 28 so don't delay if you want them.
This is a little angel that I made using the Gift Bow Bigz L die and some round punches.  The Gift Bow die is available in our current catalog and was a carry over from last years Holiday Catalog.  You can make so much more than just a standard bow with this die.

  • Gift Bow Bigz L Die (129977) $32.95
For those who have inquired about the Blendies holder I will be getting with you shortly.  After figuring size and shipping, my dad is going to do a little modification to get it more affordable to ship and yet still hold your Blendies in the same way and look the same and be just as great.  Mine was actually just a prototype.  So look for information from me soon.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Blendie Holder

Well I'm late in getting this posted today.  Seems like it's been a busy day just getting things done around here.  My dad stopped over earlier with a project that I had him working on for me.  As you know already I'm really in love with my Blendies and I wanted some way of having them at my disposal and not have to dig through a container to get at them.  I told my dad what I was thinking and he went from there and this is what he came up with.  Very similar to my ink pad storage he made me several years ago, but this one is for the Blendies.  My dad is so awesome! 

 He made it bigger than the amount of Blendies that are currently available.  Does he know something we don't?  Yeah he knows how we are and planned just in case Stampin'Up! comes out with more colors.  Now wouldn't that be awesome?  If you are interested in something like this contact me and I can get you fixed up.  Price is $38 and comes unfinished. I'm not sure on shipping if you aren't local, but I can look into that.  I had him just put a clear coat on mine.

Note the ones we are shipping now hold 78 markers.  We made them slightly smaller than the one pictured here to make them cheaper to ship.  They measure 12" x 5" x 5-1/2".  Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.
Here is a little project I completed a week or two ago.  These are 3 x 3 cards and a little box holder for them.  The box was made using the Stampin'Up! Envelope Punch Board.  Yes, the envelope punch board isn't just for envelopes.  It makes great boxes too.  And speaking of boxes.............I have a class scheduled where we will be making a box that will hold 5 cards and envelopes just like this.

I know only 4 cards are shown here, but you will be making 5.  The class is scheduled for August 19 at 6:25 pm.  You need to bring your own adhesive and if you have them a bone folder, scissors, paper trimmer and the Envelope Punch Board.  The cost of the class is $20 and if you place an order that night the class fee is $15.  Please RSVP by August 14 so I can plan accordingly. 
Well that's if for today.  Time for supper and some time with my hubby and my daughter who happens to be here tonight.

PS  The next person to place an order on my Stampin'Up! website will receive the little 3 x 3 box and cards.  So who's it going to be?

Bachelorette Stamping Party

Well this past Saturday I did a bachelorette party.  This was a whole new avenue for me, but I have to tell you I really had fun and the ladies who came had fun too.  Recently I had a friend's daughter get married and where she lives they went to a place and painted a canvas as their party.  I thought that was a cool idea.  Anything crafty always sounds like fun to me.  Well it wasn't too long after that that I had this lady approach me about doing a card making party for her daughter's bachelorette party.  I was like, sure sounds like fun.  Well here are the projects.

 Here are 4 of the cards and then they made a fifth one to give to the bride.
 This is the card box to store their cards in and we made the cute little belly band to keep it closed.
This is a little corsage I made for the bride.  Inside the bag was a mini Christmas scrapbook for her to use for their first Christmas.  Everyone had a great time.  I would love to do more of these so if you are getting married or know someone who is getting married and you'd like to do something a little different, please contact me for further details.

I will also be offering this as a class her at my place so it you are interested, please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by!
