Button, Button Fun!!!

I wanted to share a fun silver tin I made at a Convention class I went to. We used the "Button, Button" set which is one of my FAVORITE'S!!!! :) So here you go...


That band is a belly band that just slides right off so that you can open it up and use these sweet tags...Isn't this so fun?! I am not sure who designed this project for us to make but I LOVED making it!!! Hope you enjoy it too! Thanks for visiting!!!!

November Club Projects...

YIKES! Where is November going?! I have to say...it's FLYING by!!!! Yesterday was our club day. I had a blast with my gals and they seemed to enjoy the projects. :) (Which is my goal so always hoping that one happens! :) ) Here is a Christmas card we made this month. It has a fun 3D Christmas tree made with the Perfect Pennant stamp set and the Pennant Punch...
The Designer Series Paper is from the Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin' Kit. I am LOVING that paper so I had to buy some of those kits to use on some fun projects this year! And see that fun tree?! LOVE it. Here is a close-up of the tree before it was put on the card...

Love the dimension it adds. And then we also made this 3D project...


We learned how to make this box at Convention this past July. I fell in love with it and have been dying to make it ever since. :) It's made with two Milk Carton dies! SO PRECIOUS! The one they showed at convention had holes poked in the top and were tied closed with some Baker's Twine. But when I went to close mine and just pushed the top it...it stays just fine. So now it's easy to open and pop your gift in and close. Then easy for the receiver to open and close as well!!!! And the Designer Series Paper is also from the Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin' Kit. Images are from the Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set! (SO NOT JUST FOR BINGO CARDS!!!! :) LOVE those images!!!!)

And stamp club gals...I will be sending out your step-by-step directions for these projects today! So for you long distance club members that weren't there last night...now you will know how to make these projects when you receive them with your order! And for you gals that were there last night...now you can remember how you made them! :)

Thanks for visiting! Hope you enjoy!!!

Halloween Fun..

A little late...I get it! But wanted to share some Halloween fun with you! I am the room mom for my daughter's Kindergarten class so I got to plan the Halloween party! We had fun! Forgot to take some pictures of some of the things...but do have pictures of part of it. Oh shoot. Just remembered I forgot to take a pic of the favor I did for the other mom helper's and the teacher. They were a decorated white craft bag...using the Frightful Sight Designer Series Paper and Batty For You stamp set. With candy bars inside. I did take a pic of the treat I made for the bus drivers. (She has two...one takes her to school and a different one brings her home.) I actually forgot to make these the night before her Halloween party...so I had to hurry and pull something together in about 5 mins before we left for the bus. So these leave a little to be desired. :) But here you go...


Using that fabulous "Batty For You" set for the tag, some ribbon, and a large cello bag...you have some festive candy! Although I have to admit it is driving me BATTY that the Starburst is upside down! :)

Next up....how about a cute drink for your kiddos for a Halloween party?! It's a drink box I just wrapped with some white electrical tape and added some googlie eyes...

I saw these online somewhere and I about died! I HAD to make them! They are TOO CUTE!!! :)

And I know it was a Kindergarten party...but I had to make some centerpieces for the tables. So this is what I did...
Some fun lollies, rosettes, whatever you want to call them!!!! Turned some into pumpkins and some into ghosts and VOILA!!! A fun centerpiece!!! :)


I made some favors for the kiddos as well. Used the WONDERFUL 1"x8" cellos from the holiday mini and made these...

There were quite a few more in the box before I gave them all out! But sorry I forgot to get a pic of them then! And of course I had to decorate the box to take them in! :) Here is a pic of just the pencils with a pair of fangs I gave them all...

And then my fave part of Halloween this year...dressing up TWO KIDDOS for the festivities!!! We had two ladybugs at our house this year!!!!! And just had to throw this last one in there. My hubby chuckles every time he sees me take a self-portrait with one of the kids. He says, "What?! Is that the only way you can get a photo with our kids?!" cause I always give him a hard time about never picking up the camera to take a picture of me WITH the kids! I am always behind the camera taking pictures of them or him with them. :) We are working on it! But for now...here is the self-portrait...


I hope you all had a GREAT Halloween! Can't believe it's almost THANKSGIVING and then CHRISTMAS!!!! Time FLIES!!!! Thanks for visiting! Hope you enjoy!!!
