Animal Print Bookmarks

Go Wild with Bookmarks!

By | 3-D Items, Kids | No Comments

One thing I love about my oldest daughter is that when she gets an idea she makes a plan and she runs with it. She is an animal lover and in the last 2 years has raised her own money to adopt a whale and a sea turtle through the Pacific Whale Foundation. She sold cards made with a whale stamp to adopt the whale and made mini turtle cheesecakes to sell for the sea turtle. Yes, I have a little entrepreneur on my hands. So imagine her delight when earlier this week she found the World Wildlife website and an…

Foxy Friends & My Limited Imagination

By | Cards, Home Decor, Kids, Product Tips | No Comments

Sometimes I don’t have a very good imagination. I look at a stamp set & punch like Foxy Friends and all I see are odd shapes with no idea what color to use or how to put them together. Thank goodness for creative people and Pinterest!! A quick search on Pinterest gave me a GAZILLION ideas on how to use those random stamps and punch shapes to create all kinds of fun animals! I pinned a few favorites on my new Foxy Friends board. Fox, skunks, reindeer, cats, raccoons, lions… you can create a whole zoo full of animals with…

How to Make an Envelope into a Bag!

By | 3-D Items, Kids | No Comments

When I first started stamping back in 1998, one of the first things I learned how to make was an envelope bag. Otherwise known as a Bag-a-lope. Those cute little bags in the photo above? Those were both made from a single business envelope. That’s right, a regular old security nothing-pretty-about-it business envelope. There’s just something about turning something so basic and dare I say ugly into something fun like a little gift bag. And really “Bag-a-lope” is just a fun word to say. Go ahead and try to say it 5 times fast. Here’s a view from the top… The possibilities…

Forget Black Friday, we had Craft Friday!

By | Cards, Christmas, Getting Started, Kids, One Sheet Wonder Cards | One Comment

Yesterday instead of Black Friday shopping, we declared it “Craft Friday” at our house. We had fun making Christmas cards and a few other top secret projects. The most fun for me was when my younger daughter and her friend were going to make Christmas cards and my daughter asked if they could make One Sheet Wonder cards. My older daughter has been making tons of One Sheet Wonder cards, so it was nice to see that the younger one has been paying attention. 🙂 I said yes, of course! Once I set them up with their own stamping stations…

A Valentine Treat

By | 3-D Items, Big Shot, Kids, Valentines | No Comments

So often we get stuck on what a product is “supposed” to do that we forget to look beyond that to see the many other uses. I wanted to use the Stacked with Love paper with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets Dies, but the 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ paper is just too small. So I got creative and used my thinlets in a different way to make this cute little Valentine treat bag that perfectly fits a small size Hershey’s chocolate bar. Want to see how I did it?
