This would make a great addition to that book you were planning to give for Christmas. Some genius on SCS came up with it; I take no credit! It's made using the gorgeous satin ribbon from the Holiday Mini. I used Chocolate Chip. I recommend starting with 12". I folded each edge over twice (using Sticky Strip) to prevent fraying. Each end has 2 scallop circles punched from Brushed Gold cardstock. For the other piece, I stamped Baroque Motifs in Chocolate Chip onto Shimmery White cardstock. Then I sponged Creamy Caramel on it to make it beige. Everything is stuck down securely with Sticky Strip so it will hold up to use.

and hopefully I'll have some new class mates.
Well I was going to add a picture here but it doesn't want to let me do it... sorry guys.
I'm not sure how much I'll be around this week as my friend in Virginia died and I'm headed
that way. We know that she has gone to be with the Lord and is at peace.
You all take care now.

Pat, you did it. The correct punches were (the grass was a
leaf that wasn't stampin up but I didn't have anything else
to use for that.) circle punch (which I gave to you if you
said 1 1/4 or 1 3/8)
tag punch, round tab, word window, key tag and the one
some got wrong was designer label.... yes you would use the
ticket punch but then you woul have to cut out a piece of
paper first but sorry ladies I didn't give you that one...
designer label punch was the one I used...
So Pat I'll be emailing you a choose of stamps for you to pick from.

How fun is this.....glitter dying!!! Sometimes I'm a bit hesitant about a new technique or idea but this is SO easy and SO cool!!! Here goes:
Step #1: Gather your supplies. You'll need a little container (eyelet or brad containers work great!!!), a reinker, Dazzling Diamonds glitter and a tooth pick.
Step #3: Pour in about 1/2 a teaspoon of Dazzling Diamond glitter into the container. You can either put the lid on and shake or stir it up with a tooth pick. (*TIP* I rubbed my embossing buddy all over the container before I started so the glitter wouldn't completely stick to the sides)
Step #1: Stamp your image. I used Stazon ink for this image so it wouldn't bleed when I apply the 2 way glue. Colour in the image using the 2 way glue pen whereever you would like the glitter to stick.
Step #2: Sprinkle (okay, if you're like me....pour) the glitter onto the image and shake it around a bit so it all gets covered. Pour extra glitter back into the container.
Step #3: Create your card using your glittered image. Try not to rub the glitter until the glue has completely set.
Stamp Sets: Warm Words, Bugs and Kisses
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Silver
Have fun making your 48 varieties of glitter!!!

Carol this is for you more than anyone.... Just cause you got your blog going I had to add or is that update mine. Why am I doing this at am.. grrrrrrr....
Went to Charlie goodnights comedy club last night and man those guys are so good but sooooooo bad.... and my daughter got all the jokes and it was supposed to be PG....haha...not likely. But yes they were funny.
Ok I found a scrapbook page I did with Amanda but you can't tell I used chalk on the pumpkin and her face. and those other faces are older stampin' up! stamps. The top was done with a baby wipe and reinkers. then with the journaling area I crumpled it up....
So why is it I don't think I can do scrapbooking. hmmmm going to have to work on that.

I made cards to my mom, mother-in=law and my second mom..lol
only thing was that I didnt' tell them how to open it, let alone I didn't
write on it.. it's double slider card and there really isn't a place to write
unless you do it on the back...my mother in law is 90 and she was the
only one who didn't figure it out... ok I'm a little crazy...lol
don't say it... I always have been..haha
Hope everyone had a great day.

It's been a long day and I havent' done a thing... so bad of me.
I'm almost ready for my first class sense surgery and I think I messed up as it's Memorial weekend when I'm doing it. The card I posted is one of the cards I'm making at the class.
I'll keep this short as I don't have much to say today. Maybe tomorrow will be a brighter day.
