Hand-made Holiday Table

Some of you have been following me through this adventure for a while now.  It started back a while ago with me bribing you for ideas.  Then we moved on through the process of making a paper cake.  And the last part was the creation & assembly of the flatware and table details.  Now, I [...]

Jewelry Boxes

My last gifts were personalized jewelry boxes.  I always have a hard time with gifts for my husband’s siblings – he has 4 sisters and I just run out of female gift ideas.  So, here’s what I came up with:

And the inside mirror has rub-ons added:

Here’s the second one:

And the second mirror:

Again a lot of [...]

Altered Clipboard

Here is another gift item I made for this Christmas.  I bought a 97 cent clipboard at wal-mart and covered it, embellished it & sealed it.  Most of the items I used are non-SU and I apologize.  You could do the same thing using our SU projects, but I really enjoy personalizing the gift to [...]

Card Purse

Wow.  This has been a crazy weekend!  My husband’s family was here for Thanksgiving & Christmas festivities, so all day Friday & Saturday my house was full of people, food, and presents.  And now that I’ve had a day to breathe again, all I’m left with is a giant mess to clean up.  But, such [...]

Scrapbooking Family Traditions

All of us have things that have become “tradition” in our family. It could be as simple as the routine that your children go through every night to get ready for bed, or as complex as getting the whole, extended family together for Thanksgiving dinner. Either way, these moments make your [...]

Tiny Treat Box

Hey, there!  Today’s project is another 3D item.  It’s a tiny little treat box made from the Ski Slope DSP and some acetate.

Here’s another view:

This was super quick & easy to make!  The box bottom measures 3″ x 4.25″.  Then I scored at 7/8″ on all sides.  Next, cut the tabs in from the short [...]

Minnie Christmas Ornament

Okay, finally, I have a chance to post something!  I’m actually proud of this one because it doesn’t use any stamping and started out as a clear glass Christmas ornament.

I took some black craft ink and squeezed it inside the ornament and rolled it around and around and around to coat the inside with ink.  [...]
