I cased this ornament from Ilina Crouse, a very creative demonstrator.  I did change mine around a little but the main idea is from Ilina.  This, believe it or not, was not as much work as it looks.  I guess the hardest time I had with it was keeping it glued together long enough so the glitter and flakes stayed put.  I apologize for the reflection of light on the top of the bulb but that is almost impossible to remove while photographing.  I think I could have had better luck if I shot the picture outside in daylight.  The backgound in the bulb is stamped with the set White Christmas.

When you order these journals (page 200) you get two and they make great gifts.  They are 3 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ so they fit nicely in your purse or pocket.  I covered the journal with our DSP Flashback found on page 186 and embellished it with some of our rhinestones which I colored with a black sharpie.  So much fun to decorate!  OOPS! just realized I spelled Stampin’Up! wrong on my watermark……bummer!

08. October 2014 · Comments Off on More from WCMD · Categories: 3D Items, Cards · Tags: , , , ,

These are more cards from my class on Saturday and the 3D item we made!  The first card is made from Fall Fest and the matching Fun Fall Framelits Dies and Motley Monster DSP.   The Football is made with the Curvy Keepsake Thinlits Dies found on page 11 of the Holiday catalog.











The third card is from the big Catalog, Flower Patch, page 156 and cut out with the matching Flower Fun Framelits Dies using the Big Shot. We left the inside blank so you could make it any greeting you wish.   All of the sets posted today that have matching die cuts can be purchased with a 15% discount if bundled.IMG_1855

22. September 2014 · Comments Off on Dishwasher Magnets · Categories: 3D Items · Tags: , , ,

Again, I used my iphone to take pictures of these magnets.  We had to buy a new dishwasher and the new one was Stainless steel inside and out and we could never tell if it was dirty or clean because we both load and unload the washer.  Well it was driving me nuts!  So, I needed to improvise, instead of going out and buying a dirty and clean button, I made these with our retired framelits (Cannery Set).  I used Flashback DSP and linen thread to decorate them and used the adhesive letters from Project Life BY SU Everyday kit to add the words.
I also made one for my Water Aerobics instructor as she and I have the exact same Dishwashers and that was her only complaint also.  See, stamps aren’t just for cards and memory keeping.

This is my creation for the tag swap at convention.  Fortunately I only had to make 8 of these.  It is a small swap. So in turn I will get 8 different ones back.  Of course, I will be coming home with tons of swaps to share with you.

12. July 2014 · Comments Off on 3D item · Categories: 3D Items · Tags: , , , ,

I got the idea for this from a video posted on the Stampin’ Connection by Linda Bauwin.  I think it is so stinkin’ cute!  I used our new incolors and the stamp set Work of Art.  The flower is made from the new Fun Flower Punch.

28. May 2014 · Comments Off on Hamburger Box Bigz Die · Categories: 3D Items · Tags: , , ,

We made this at Stamp Camp on Saturday and everyone loved it.  It was made with a new die that is coming out on the 2nd of June.  Different versions of this are all over the internet so it has become very popular.

25. April 2014 · Comments Off on Diorama · Categories: 3D Items · Tags: , , ,

I love making these you can be so creative with them.  They are very easy to create.  I used the tulips and the bird from Backyard basics found in the big catalog on page 79.  In addition, I used the backyard basics framelits to cut out the tulips and the bird.  There is a framelit for every stamp in this set so you don’t have to fussy cut anything.  So simple!
I used the sentiment from Trust God on page 78 and I covered the tulips with Crystal Effects to make the flowers pop! The stamp set and the framelits you can get as a bundle and save 15%.  See details on page 79.







13. April 2014 · Comments Off on Card in a box! · Categories: 3D Items · Tags: , , ,

These are all over the net.  This is my take on CIAB.  I made it the same way we used to make the 2-4-6-8 box.  I watched several videos on this and they are all different.  Some with some intricate measurements that I wasn’t having any luck reproducing.  I loved how the box came out but I am not in a hurry to make another one right away. I think I want to wait until the new in-colors come out and then it will be like trying something new.

04. April 2014 · Comments Off on Treat Holders · Categories: 3D Items · Tags: , , , ,

We made these little Easter treats at Stamp camp and hostess club.  I used the new Scalloped tag punch and covered the nuggets with In-color designer series paper.  The bunny image is from Storybook Friends.  Just the right size for classroom friends or co-workers.
To make, cut the card stock at 2″ X 8 1/2″ and score from each end at 3 1/2″.  Punch both ends with the Scallop Tag Topper punch and thread ribbon through holes.  Decorate front of treat holders with something Easter.  Wrap the nuggets with DSP cut at 1″ X 3″.  Adhere with glue dots.  Easy peasy!

14. September 2013 · Comments Off on Wall Hanging · Categories: 3D Items · Tags: , , , ,

I cased this from a felllow demonstrator on Stampin Connection.  It was on the leaderboard and when I went back to get her name so I could give her credit, it had dropped off the leaderboard.  So unfortunately, I am unable to give her credit for her inspiration.  If anyone knows who this talented demonstrator is, please drop me an email so I can add her name here.

This so easy to make.  The entire wall hanging is one sheet of the Witches Brew DSP.  You just cut it out in sections, adhere it to heavy chipboard (I used tombow multi purpose glue), the kind that comes with our specialty DSP.  Sand down the sides and cover the exposed sides with basic black ink.  Punch holes in it with a cropadile, add the silver rings and hemp twine to hang it with and viola! you are good to go.

This is the 3D item we made at camp on Saturday!  Everyone loved it and so easy to put together.  Just the perfect size to hold 3 little Hershey nuggets for that special co-worker or little Goblin.  If you aren’t coming to my monthly camps, you are missing out on some really neat projects.  They are held on the 4th Saturday of every month.  See my calendar HERE for clubs, classes, and camps.

Don’t throw out those little brad and button cases that you get.  Turn them into little gift holders.  This one I covered with washi tape and made the rose from our Blossom punch.  Just put in a piece of jewelry, candy, or whatever.  Too much fun to create.

06. August 2013 · Comments Off on Summer Camping Tent · Categories: 3D Items · Tags: , , , ,

A few days ago I posted a video on how to make this little tent.  It is so much fun to make and very easy.  Watch the video and if you have any problems, just contact me and I will walk you through it.  I used Gorgeous grunge stamp set to create the digital camo look on the tent, but you can use anything to decorate it.  I just thought this pattern would be good for girls as well as boys.

13. February 2013 · Comments Off on Baby Memory Cans · Categories: 3D Items, Uncategorized · Tags: , , , , ,

I used to make these baby memory cans for people that I worked with and sell them for $35.  It included the can with all the baby firsts, the poem, the can opener, matching pen and milestone cards for them to write on.  They told me they were always the “Hit of the baby shower”.

In addition, I included a 3″x3″ gift card and a very vanilla bracket to personalize the baby’s name on the top of the can.  However, the last 2 years I have turned this project over to my Daughter Maureen, who is also a demonstrator.  This memory can below is made by her.

You will also note that I made the little Tooth Fairy box out of our button and brads containers for an additional fee.  All of the stamps that I used for these were from 2000 and 2004 (all retired).  The tooth Fairy stamp was just a couple of years ago I believe but also retired.  These are all stamp sets that I could never part with.  They are so versatile.  I would love your comments about these memory cans.  Hugs, Patti

Mo and I just went to Tiffany’s baby shower and this is how I wrapped my gift for her baby.  I used Birds of a Feather DSP and the Primrose petal ribbon and inks.  Second picture is the 3″ x 3″ gift card I made to attach to the side of the bag with baby clothespins.  Hope you like it.  Hugs, Patti















09. February 2013 · Comments Off on How about some chocolate? · Categories: 3D Items, Uncategorized · Tags: , , , , ,

I cased this lovely little chocolate box from another demo, Martha Lucia Gomez on Stampin’ Connection.  She used a little wooden clothespin and I used the Crumb cake taffeta ribbon for closure.  Thank you Martha for the great video (even though it was in Spanish) that inspired me.  It fits perfectly, three (3) Chocolate Nuggets if you stand them on on ends, side by side.  Really awesome teacher gift for Valentine’s day.
