DATE:  Saturday, April 24, 2010

TIME: 10am-1pm

COST: $10.00

PLACE: Kristi Kelly's house
610 Painted Opus Pl.
North Las Vegas, NV 89084

Email me at to sign up.

This is the inside of the purse. There are two pockets inside that will hold 3 cards & 3 envelopes on each side.

This was my first attempt at making this purse. Thanks to Ilina Crouse for the pattern. When you make yours it will not have the pattern on the inside of the box.

These are two pictures of the cards. Love the butterflies!!

Two different Happy Birthday cards or you can put a Thank-You card in there if you want.

A Best Wishes & a For You card.

The cute little box is about 3" tall when it's closed. It's made with the retired designer paper that went with the current Tart & Tangy stamp set. It's made using the Petal Card Sizzix Die. Thanks to Ilina Crouse for directions on how to make the box.
This is how the box looks when it's closed.

This is is how it looks when the box is opened. It will fit quite a bit of candy or a small gift. The Designs will vary for the kits. I have some paper with Cherries & flowers. I don't have any more Red apple patterned paper but I do have a lot of Green apple paper. If you want something specific, please let me know in your email.  If you can't make it, but would like a kit, please let me know. If you're out of state I can let you know how much the shipping will be. I only ship to the US.

My wonderful friend Sandra made this for me. I don't remember where the idea originated from since I've seen them several places. This is the Milk Carton Sizzix Die from Stampin' Up! It's in the Occasions Mini Catalog which is good through April 30th.  The die measures 6" x 8-3/4" so the milk cartons are pretty small. The mild carton holder was made separately. They're just the right size to hold a small gift or candy. I've seen so many different ideas on how to use this die cut. You can order it from me at

If you're looking for retired Stampin' Up! items check out my


I just love these brag books! It's so fun to use different patterns of Designer paper, cardstock. & embellishments. I used the Sweet Pea Designer paper from the Occasions Mini Catalog & Pumpkin Pie C/S. I added some half pearls & some little stick on pearls from a craft store. This Designer paper pack is a must have!
This is the inside of the CD holder with more Sweet Pea DSP, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, & Sahara Sand is in the pocket. The silver ribbon holder is a piece of the Hodge Podge hardware. It's actually holding a piece of Whisper White paper.

This is the 3rd & 4th page of the book. These Sweet Pea colors are just beautiful together with the brown C/S. The embellishments are punched from the Trio Flower punch and the butterflies are from the Beautiful Wings Sizzix Embossing Folder. I believe it's exclusive to Stampin' Up! I've added some rhinestones to give it some bling.The last 2 pages are my favorite. See the cute birdies sitting on the clouds. The 3x3 envelopes are from Stampin' Up! They're so smooth & easy to work with. The C/S inside the envelopes are Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, & Bashful Blue with matching Grosgrain ribbon. So Saffron was used inside the CD pocket.  I'm going to be making some more different varieties until I use up this paper pack. These make great baby, wedding, birthday, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Easter, Summer fun Brag Books for gift giving. Why not give yourself a gift? If you're interested in purchasing one for yourself or to give as a gift, please email me.
The cost is $15 plus $2 shipping. I do take Pay pal.

These are the two projects that we did on Friday evening at my Technique Stamp Group at Dana's house. Stephanie was the Hostess. She earned 3 free Sale-a-bration stamp sets. a 6x6 pad of Designer paper, a Level 1 Hostess stamp set, the Level 1 Designer paper pack, a Level 2 Stamp set, & $60 in free merchandise. It was like Christmas for her in March!! We all had a great time and every learned how to make the crimped lace flower. I learned this tutorial from Patty Bennett's website.
This is a side view of my project. You can't see the candy inside, but there is a mini cello bag with a small amount of mini M&M's inside. I used the Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel w/Perfect Plum cartridge on Old Olive C/S, Mistletoe Ribbon (retired), the Scallop Lace border punch, crimper, Welcome Neighbor 6x6 DSP pack of paper, Circle Ice Rhinestone brads and Big Shot Two Tags die. Ink color is Perfect Plum sponge daubered onto the crimped Whisper White paper.  
The other project was an Easter card using the Big Shot embossing folder Petals-a-Plenty & the Daises Die cut.  I also used the Chocolate Bunny Single Stamp & the Happy Easter from the new Well Scripted stamp set in the Occasions Mini Catalog. The colors that I used were Crushed Curry. The beads & Rhinestone were from a craft store.

This card was designed by Erlinda. I was supposed to leave a blank spot for the Happy Birthday but I got carried away with the stamping. I will stamp the Happy Birthday onto a white piece of card stock and punch it out with a scallop punch and mount it on this card before I give it away.

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted something. I've been busy working on my Stamp Group projects and preparing for my March Scrapbook Camp.

I went to my Demonstrator meeting and we had a Shoe Box Swap. This is where we each make a project and bring enough supplies so that everyone that's coming can make the project. I had mine all ready to go and in my rush to gather everything up to run my earrands before I went I left it on my table.  I was able to give everyone $.50 to make their cards that night. 

I'll post a couple cards as I have time to scan them and get them ready. I don't know who designed each card, but I did stamp and put together each card.
