Cookie Sheet Message Board

I made these for a swap I do each month with my amazing demonstrator friends.  I first saw this idea on my upline's blog-Christie Hagerhjelm.   You can see her cookie sheet HERE
This was so much fun to make.  The hardest part was finding the cookie sheets at a dollar store. Finally I found them, and I was so excited!!!
I made marble magnets, and covered thumb tacks with flowers. 
Close up of 2 of the magnets. 

Stamp sets: Contempo alphabet, Eastern Blooms
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Cameo Coral, Tempting Turquoise
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral, Tempting Turquoise
Tools: SU! Big Shot, scallop edge punch, trio flower punch, circle punches, Tombo liquid glue
Thanks for looking!!

"On the Go" stamp scrubs

I made these mini stamp scrubs for my club stampers as their christmas gifts.  I laminated each one, and monogramed each for personalization. 

Finished gifts, complete with mini bottles of Stampin mist :)

Inside look

Paint pads

Cut them in half-one for each side

I glued Pink Flamingo DSP to cardstock -this is the cover

This is the inside. 
I decorated the front with the monograms, (I had embossed their initials-however when you try to laminate the whole thing-the embossing powder melts further and the effect is not the same-oops)
I used the crop a dile to punch a hole and attach the jumbo brads (double mounted-1 outside and 1 on the inside) to secure the elastic to hold the bottle of mist. 
I attached the scrub pads with velcro so they can take them off and wash them if they want to! YAY
Email me if you want more details. TFL!

Awesome Ornaments

Swap from Chas Mullins.  I know she dyed Dazzling Diamonds glitter with her reinker, added rub ons and some ribbon!  Beautiful!

The other side

You can barely see inside but Chas stamped on acetate and added dazzling diamonds. Love it!

This was one of my projects from a while ago.  We embossed silver snowflakes on the outside of the ornament, stamped on acetate a snowman and tree, and hung them inside with silver cord.  We added some fake snow, dazzling diamonds, and real red ribbon.  It was a fun project.

This was made by Jodey Batay.  It is made out of DSP, and the Pretties Kit! Awesome Jodey! Thank you!

Gifts and Giving frame from 2008

I love this little candle.  So cute! It was also from my Gifts and Giving class last year.

Framed art from AGES ago!  This was a class I took from Christie Hagerhjelm, now she is my upline.

This was a shadow box project I came up with for my very first Gifts and Giving class.

Hot cocoa packet from Jodey Batay-So cute!!
It was raining so hard the night we had our christmas demonstrator party-I am responsible for the ink smearing on the front cover!  UGH!  I was so sad it smeared!!!
