25 Day Countdown to Christmas

Nov 23, 2012

Today, I’m making a 25 day Countdown to Christmas project with my nieces Madelyn and Bellie. As you can see from the photo they are loving their new matching jammies. New flannel jammies are the best especially when you find matching ones like my mom did with a monkey print design. Ok sorry, back to the project. Both little sweet peas will decorate 12 standard sized card envelopes using stickers, self adhesive gems, then stamp the numbers needed on each of their bags. Madelyn will stamp the odd numbers and Bellie the even numbers. I will decorate envelope 25 for them to either use as a sample or for inspiration. Once all the envelopes are decorated I’ll fill each one with 2 pieces of candy and a printed strip of paper that has one...

This week, as I was in Hobby Lobby I saw that they are putting out all their seasonal items and crafts for all those who like to start working on projects for craft fairs, gifts and home decor items.

UTEE Love

Dec 15, 2011

One thing I love to do is look in the $1 section at Target, in Thrift Stores or in the clearance aisle for silicone baking molds. I like to use them to create holiday and seasonal Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE) embellishments and small projects. Well, the other day I scored big time in the $1 section at Target. They had these super cute cupcake (Christmas Tree, Snowflake and Gingerbread Man) silicone molds. I grabbed them like they were gold and could not wait to get home and start playing. To make these soon to be ornaments all you need to do is melt clear UTEE as instructed on the UTEE Melting Pot. Make sure you have the Melting Pot on a Non-Stick Craft Sheet and remember UTEE and the Melting Pot are HOT...

So what do you think…

Sep 11, 2008

Yesterday I was wondering how a small brown paper bag would emboss using an embossing folder well… I used the textile embossing folder (seems to be my favorite) then covered the embossed bag using Ranger Distress Inks in Vintage Photo and Spiced Marmalade.
