Happy Fall!!


Happy Fall to All,

As you can see from above I have been busy creating cards and craft items for my craft fair in November.

I made the card that has the “Looks Who’s Turning 95″ was made for my Uncle who will be celebrating his 95th birthday on October 4th,  He loves to play cards.  So to make this card, I used black card stock for the base;  Layered a piece of orange cardstock 4″ by 5.25” and downloaded an image of the card picture and printed it on white cardstock.  I used gold foil paper to cut out the 95 from the “Number of Years” stamp set from Stampin Up which is now retired.  I also used the sentiment from the same stamp set and embossed in with gold stampin up embossing powder. All materials are from Stampin UP with the exception of the deck of card print.

The second card:  is from the made using the “Love What You Do” stamp set  and Designer Series paper.  The base of the card stock is 4.25 by 5.5 the DSP was cut at 4″ x 5.25 Then I took a piece of Powered Pink card stock and edged with the the new Detailed edged Thinlits.  The sentiment came from the Love What you do Stamp Set and I used the new Label thinlit dies.  I also used the leaf punch to add as embellishments and the lastly I used the pearls on the the label.

The 2 packaged items are Lip Gloss holders that I made from a You Tube video by Karen MNall.  The dimensions were hers but the designs of the papers and designer series paper are my own.  I made 18 of these and plan to sell them at the craft fair in November!

The Holiday Catalog is live and you can start to place your orders.  There are so many cool items in this catalog.  I just ordered the Take Your Pick Tool.  See next paragraph.

 The Take Your Pick tool (item # 144107 found on page 30). I almost missed it as there were so many wonderful things to look at.  After viewing the video, I realized it does way more than I thought.  It has a putty end that aids in picking up items like sequins.  The other end has a spatula that helps in picking up adhesive-backed items or moving them after placed.  That spatula piece can be reversed to a paper piercer.  Also included is another piece that can be inserted there that has both a small and a large stylus.  This tool can be used to replace two tools so it’s easier to do everything with this one tool.  Amazing!!  A $10.00 value which is well worth it.
