Napkin Holder

What is a crafty gal supposed to do with the kids when it's cold and raining outside? Make napkin rings for Thanksgiving of course! Hanna made one of these in school for art and I thought it was the cutest thing ever. So today, we cut up all the toilet paper rolls and paper towels we had. YES, I do collect them...just for reasons like this! :0) We are going to two places for Thanksgiving this year, so the kids made 10 for each hostess. I'll just wrap them up in simple cello bags and tie them up with pretty ribbon and attach a cute little tag.

Supplies needed:

Paper towel/toilet paper rolls
Brown craft paint (Mike's 40% off coupon)
Googly eyes (Dollar Tree...big bag for a buck)
Feathers (Mike's...use another 40% off coupon)
Circle punch (I used 1 1/4)
Creamy Caramel paper (Stampin' Up!)
Only Orange paper(Stampin' Up!)
Crafters glue

Simple easy directions:
Cut the empty rolls into desired length
Glue 2 feathers on one side (or desired amount of feathers)
Glue the circle (face) over the feathers and be sure to apply pressure to stick.
Cut thin strips of Only Orange c.s. Fold in 1/2 and cut at a point to make the beak.
Glue beak.
Glue eyes.

A simple card

Here is a simple card I just made during nap time. I wanted to make more, but I can't concentrate on anything right now.

I used SU set True Friend and SU Red Riding Hood ink. Ohhh, I'm so love that color and I am NOT a red person!!!

Stamp Club

These are some creations from Stamp Club. The Halloween card and tin was made last month, but the gift card holder and the adorable bag/tote was made last night.

3D Design Challenge

Here is the box I made for the 3D design challenge this week. I wanted it to match Angie's baby announcements because I'm filling it up with little goodies for the new baby.

I used 4 sheets of 6x12 paper and scored at the 6. Layer the bottom pieces, fold up the sides, tied together. Cute, cute, cute. I was going to add more to it, but ran out of time. So much for me huh?

Angie's baby announcements

OK, so tomorrow...or today depending when you read this (November 11th), my best friend is being induced. They are having their 5th child. Their second girl. She has everything...her fourth child is a girl, so they have clothes, blankets, everything you can think of. I decided to make her baby announcements. I found this set from TAC called Hello Baby. I love it. I think it's just adorable. I knew when I saw the catalog that I had to get it to use on her cards.

Since diapers are white (ha, when clean anyway), I wanted it to stand out. I used Liquid Glass by Close To My Heart and sprinkled Close To My Heart glitter on it. When you heat Liquid glass and it gets hot, it bubbles decided to do that on the diaper to give it some dimension.

Ang, if you are reading this...good luck. I love ya and I can't wait to meet our new baby girl!!!!

Sympathy card

I cased this card from here. The original card is much prettier. I fell in love with it when I saw it. Anyway, Angie asked me to make a sympathy card for her, so this is what I did.

SU stamp set: Inspired by Nature
SU: Close to Cocoa, Barely Banana and Certainly Celery PP
SU ink: Close to Cocoa

Three things on my holiday WISH list....

Three things on my holiday WISH list...

I was tagged by my crafty friend Tonya in a fun little internet meme. I am to list three things on my holiday wish list. Fun!

Now remember...these are only WISHES, not something I would ever get. LOL!

1. A Cadillac Escalade. Yep, that's right. I want an Escalade in White Daimond with Chasmere interior...and TOTALLY PAID FOR!

Hummm, this is hard. I have no idea what else I want. LOL!

2. A mansion that looks like this with 7 bedrooms, an office and a craft room...but it still has to be in the Oak Hills school district and it MUST come with a maid or 2 to clean it.

3. Another baby. Heee heee.

Now it's your turn...if you read have been tagged!!! Bwwwaaahhaaaa!!!
