2014-09-02 Left over card parts from August Shoebox


Last month when I met up with Maggi, she sent me home with card parts. I had black & white printed DSP; and a few swirl backgrounds from the black & white card that we had made together.

I took those card parts and added another big flower and came up with this sample…

Here is a close up of the big flower. It’s been colored, had 3-d T-shirt paint added and some white gel pen as accents added.

One last look before you go on about your day…

Maggi will be pleased to know that of all the cards we made together; including this extra one from spare card parts; have all been mailed out to stamp friends. I guess it’s time to make more!

2014-09-01 September’s calendar page


The calendar page you see is a project that was started and completed September 2013. This calendar project was made by all of the Shoebox Ladies and two Stamping Friends from Washington State. We each made two pages (or 2 months) in the calendar. Instead of showing them all at once back in 2013, I’ve decided to delay posting until the actual month they were created for.

This month the calendar page was created by Jane Cherney.

My continuing thanks to Maggi who organizes us each year. She also works hard on collecting, punching, binding and redistributing the finished bound pages back to the players. I look forward to seeing the finished pages each month!

2014-08-30 Last project from the August Shoebox & review


This is the last project I have to share from the August Shoebox I enjoyed with my stamping buddy, Maggi. This particular project was sent to me to make by my Stampin Up (SU) demonstrator, Sally. Thanks Sally! Maggi was a good teacher and showed me just what to do.

If I protect the bottom portion; I can use this as a plant poke or even a cake decoration!

and a review of all the projects that we made together….

This was quite the afternoon. Not only did I get to make all of these fun things, but Maggi made homemade soup and filled me with a tasty treat. Besides that, she sent me home with all of the rest of the soup which I enjoyed for two more meals! Delish!

2014-08-28 Flower shop shoe box project


For this project (that was brought for a shoe box project) I used the Stampin Up (SU) set Flower Shop.

2014-08-12 (22)

I filled the flower centers with some SU eyelets that I picked up at a rummage sale. The ink colors I used are all SU as well: more mustard; going gray; tempting turquoise.

The larger sized sentiment is also ny SU from the set All Year Cheer I; I picked this stamp up as an individual stamp from a rummage sale. The crystal gems make you want to look inside, right?

2014-08-26 2nd sample of the swooshy gift


As promised, here is the 2nd card front that I made while visiting my stamping buddy. I again brought this home, matted and mounted it. This time however; I played by added different mediums and textures.

On the border I used Scor-Tape and multi colored gold leaf flakes. On the center strip I added some Martha Stewart mini marbles.

To add texture to the zig zag I ran a line of perfect paper adhesive, zigging and zagging following the stamped image then sprinkled with extra fine glitter.

I like both of the swoosh cards and can see using this image a lot in the future!

Thanks Maggi for the fun mini challenge.

2014-08-24. Swooshy gift


when I visited home a couple of weeks ago I was given a rubber stamp of a swoosh image. While I was visiting I played with the sat amp and made a few quick card fronts. I then brought them home and mounted them. This is the first one. Just matted and mounted.

The only thing I did add extra was the Flower Soft. I love the bit of added texture it adds to this otherwise flat design.

2014-08-21 Card kit finally used!


I made this card kit in early July and then put it away so it would be ready for when I had a shoebox meeting. I finally put it to use when I met up with my friend Maggi.

I still had one kit left when I headed home so I changed it up just by using a different image and verse from the same Stampin Up set, Words by Wanda.

The original version is on the right; the extra kit that was made up when I returned home is shown on the left.

I have a few more projects to share from my craft day, so be sure to stop back!
