Botanicals Wall Art

DSCN4084

Here's a project I've been so excited to share with you!!! We have a gift exchange at our annual Demonstrator Christmas party and this is the gift that I made for the exchange. I am in LOVE with the Botanicals Suite in the Occasions Mini Catalog! I combined the Botanical framelits with the Hello Life stamp "DO MORE OF WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY" to make a beautiful framed piece. The frame is for a 12" x 12" scrapbook page.

DSCN4077

Here's a close up - this was really quite easy to make - all I really did was die cut the flowers and leaves...sponged some color in the middle of the flowers and drew some lines on them with my Real Red marker.  The leaves look like they are porcelain because I squished them in VersaMark ink and embossed them with clear embossing powder - twice!

DSCN4081

The words are embossed with black embossing powder and the designer paper is from the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper. Add a little burlap ribbon and white baker's twine and WAAA LAAA!

Gor-Jee-Ous Gift Holder

DSCN9560

Isn't this adorbs???  It's two of the Pillow Box Dies - just slide them together and you have a gift box that is double the size.  This is a pretty good sized box - like you could fit a pair of socks in this puppy. The black belly band adds some support to the middle and covers the seams where the two boxes come together.

The Pillow Box die is shown below and you can bundle it with the A Little Something stamp set for a 15% discount.  The stamp set has the perfect sized stamps to decorate your box if you choose to use solid cardstock instead of Designer Series Paper.

I received this box from Jill Olsen when I was in Utah - she really loaded us up with some great treats!

Gifts for my Downline - OH MY!

DSCN8156

How stinkin' cute are these????  I had so much fun making them!  These little gift bags were given to my team members that attended the Stampin' Up! convention in Salt Lake City a couple weeks ago!!!  I filled them with all kinds of little goodies for them!

DSCN8150

I used the ENGLISH GARDEN DESIGNER SERIES PAPER and the BOLD BUTTERFLY FRAMELITS - the little gift back were made with the AMAZING GIFT BAG PUNCH BOARD!!!  This punch board makes up three different sized gift bags in a snap.  This was the smallest of the three.  I have a video below from Stampin' Up! that shows you how easy they are to make.

Butterflies for your broken leg?

DSCN7040

Here's a pretty card to share with you today - it was shared at my May Team Meeting.  Love the butterfly dies!!!!

DSCN7039

 

And here's another story....my BFF broke her leg!!!! EEEKKKKK!  She called me one day recently and told me that she had a fabulous idea - it was going to transform my stamping business!  WOW - couldn't wait to hear all about it -you know how much I LOVE my stamping business!!!  So this is before....

 

 

DSCN7980

And this is AFTER!!!  How stink in' cute is this????  Wanna know how we did it?  Mod Podge and die cut Designer Series Paper and Gold Glimmer Paper!!!!  I gooped the Mod Podge on her cast and then pushed the butterflies into it and painted over them again with a sponge brush.  One application - I didn't need to go back and paint over it after it was dry.  We did this a week ago and all the butterflies are still in place...the edges aren't popping up - no problems!  Funny thing...my BFF walked (opps - crutched!) into a local Mexican Restaurant last night and one of the customers saw her cast and said "are you friends with Kelly Acheson because that cast is FAMOUS!!!"  How funny is that???

The cast comes off next Tuesday - she's going to get a red or blue one and we are going to get to work decorating that beast for the 4th of July holiday!!!!  Can't wait to show you what's up next!
