Stamping, Crafting, Creating


Sunday, October 31, 2010



This was my last workshop here in Germany with my friends. I love the girls I got to hang out with one last time for some stamping fun. It's just such a shame that I met them so late....4 years with them would have made my time here much more fun and bareable!!!!
Here are the projects from our fun morning!

This is a little photo holder we made. Super simple but super cute right?
Items used:
office clip
round SU! punch
oval SU! punch
early espresso ink
??modern punch SU!?? (is this the right name for that punch?)

wow..that picture is bad!!! We did watercoloring with this card. I hadn't done that in a LONG time and had so much fun with it. The girls did too, is super simple and so much different the using markers. All items of course are SU!

A treat bag!!! I found a tutorial on youtube for this! The folds were kind of confusing but having it on youtube I could stop, go back and replay as many times as I needed to get it right!!

This is one of the gifts I made for the workshop. I filled it with buttons and brads, ribbon and a free shipping card!!!
Another quick and easy project.....just used a frap bottle!!

My decorated table!! Do you notice a project that I didn't add to my post today???? Well come back tomorrow to see's part of my post for the Critter DT!!!

Paper Princess Blog Challenge

I have a fabulous group of girls in a blog group that Melanie and I put together and it's much more then just a blog's a group of women that have the common interest in crafting but also in enjoying the company of other women. We have become such a close group and I love each and every one of these girls. We were doing a little challenge and this month our hostesses Melina and AnnMarie decided to do punch art. If you've never seen AnnMaries punch art...your truely missing out because she comes up with some awesome creations (with the help sometimes of other bloggers and such...that's the beauty of blogs) so for this challenge she really came through...I mean look at this's the most bling bling pooch I've ever seen! This picture is pretty crappy...doesn't do the pup much justice!!!!

I promise next week or so I will have some pictures of our empty house for you! Then maybe you all will feel bad for stamping conditions are less than acceptable to my personal standards....just wait till you see...LOL!!!!

It's a new week for the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog so of course there is a new challenge. It's also a new month for us so we have a new sponsor. Our sponsor this month is MelJens Designs. Have you ever been over to their challenge blog? If not, please take some time to check it out. She has some really great images over there, they have a new challenge each week and every week the have a new freebie...who doesn't like freebies???? I know I do!!!
The image I used today is actually from MelJens.
This week, actually all month over at the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog we are doing sketches so if you are in need of some help putting a card together, hop on over, look at the sketch, make your card or even scrapbook page and then link it to the blog for a chance to win a great prize from MelJens at the end of the month!

Posted by PicasaMaterials used:
SU! Brads
Kaisercraft and Imaginance flowers
Dots from Stamping Bella
Copic Markers

Challenges Entered:
MelJens Designs~Monocromatic and no glitter
~MelJens is sponsoring OWH (operation write home) a wonderful organization that sends handmade cards to soldiers who are defending our freedom. I love this organization and what it stands for because I have had my husband deploy several times and have heard of some guys never receiving a single thing from anyone there entire time there....that to me is heartbreaking and I have taken it upon myself to make sure that everyone my husband is deployed with always gets a card (if not two) while he's deployed. I know what OWH cards are doing for these guys...brightening their day and making their time there a bit more bareable. So go over and check out the link and more information!
