Each paddle has a number on it.    Each prize has a bid amount- 1, 2, 3, or 4 quarters.  You toss the amount of quarters in the bin on your table when you hold up your paddle.  Then the auctioneer calls random numbers pulled out of a bin.  The 1st paddle with the number called is the winner!  So for just a $1.00 (or so) you could have won this prize!

Lots of direct selling Consultants participate.  There were demonstrators from Southern Living, Longaberger, Lia Sophia, Tastefully Simple, Party Lite, and many more.  Its not just stamping...plus all my prizes are completed Projects.

Back to the prize:  This is a Bitty album I made with the Apple Cider paper from last year.  I modge podged the cover and each page has matching paper.  I made a matching 8.5x11 frame with matching paper.

A birthday Thanks




These were the Thanks You notes for My daughter's 6th Birthday party.  You can see the invites HERE and the Party decorating HERE.

I wanted them to be ice cream theme related, but I just could not make it work.  So we went for the Birthday cupcake (Crazy for Cupcakes set that's on sale this month).  Its is layered on a 3 layer flower, cut from the scallop circle nestabilities.  I sponged the edges and then snipped into each petal to give dimension.

For the inside I used some CTMH stamps to thank each girl for the fun party and the great memory Sydney has.  The group photo is die cut with the Top note.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless noted

Recipe:
Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes, Friendship word puzzle(CTMH)

I look forward to hearing from you!

Convention Scrap Page- converted

Does anyone else out there have several piles of unfinished projects???? I sure do and this was one of them! Above is the 8.5x8.5 scrap page we made at convention. I don't own any scrap books that size, not to mention I did not want to waste the page, so I transformed into a 12x12. I took an 8.5x11 sheet of Kiwi Kiss to match, scallop edge punched it and layered it with the original page. The base is 12x12 Sahara sand card stock. I love that wide double stitched ribbon!!

Recipe:
Stamps: Flight of the butterfly
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Pumpkin pie, rose red, Sahara sand

Christmas card designs

One of my club members (Hi Perrie)  asked me to design some Christmas cards for her.  She sent me a page of stamped images that she loves and these are what I came up with.  





So How did I do? It was a fun little challenge and best of all she loved them and she has already added a few of the items used in the cards to her last club order!  (I am sneaky, LOL).  These designs lend themselves to a variety of stamped images.  Check out your stamps- Do any of your holiday images fit these layouts??  & The glitter is there-look close!

Stamps:  Unknown
Paper:  Holiday Treasures, Celery, riding hood red, chocolate chip
Ink:  Brown, from what I can see
Accessories:  Wide oval & square scallop, scallop edge & circle punches, various ribbon and Brads, piercing tool,  dimensionals, markers for coloring

The crazy bird


I made this bird a while back- maybe even July or August? It was when I learned the technique of ribbon fraying. You pull a small piece of the end of the grosgrain(only 1 end works) and you unravel the ribbon. That's how I got the crazy Birds hair.

The Bird is cut from the Oval coluzzle in so saffron. I sponged the edges in pumpkin ink. The grass is hand cut from scraps then I ran them through the crimper. The nose and legs are also hand cut. To see my inspiration, click here.

Recipe:
Stamps: circle of friendship (retired)
Paper: so saffron, old olive and rose red card stock and DSP
Ink: rose red, pumpkin
Accessories: ribbon, oval coluzzle, paper crimper, circle punches

Club Card Spoiler!!!

Yes, that Monkey is still hanging around....


Isn't he cute?  I cased this from a card I received from a swap I am in.  Unfortunately the original artist did not put her name on her swap card.  Big bummer- since I really want to give her credit!

I have to admit that the Sock Monkey is on my least favorite sets list!- I know there are lots and lots of you out there who LOVE him to pieces.  After this card, and the bib card- he is starting to grow on me.  I am sure to make at least a few more seriously cute projects with him.  (wink)

Recipe: 
Stamps: Sock monkey, Fresh Cuts
Paper: Kiwi kiss, close to cocoa, black, vanilla
Ink:  Kiwi Kiss, black
Accessories:  DMC thread, curly label punch, dimensionals, markers for coloring

Big Shot club projects

Each month, as part of the club, my Big shot club members get to make 4 projects. These 1st 2 you have seen before in previous posts. I loved them so much I had to share them with the girls.



This project utilizes the pillow box die. I cased this from Angie Juda. You can see hers HERE. Its super cute don't you think!

This project uses the top note, folded into a purse. We made these at a Diva Day team event last month. the chocolates fit in perfectly! The club girls made theirs in bashful blue designer prints paper and chocolate chip. so cute

Pocket Silhouettes swap card


I am participating in a swap group with a few other Demonstrators. Twila and Becky have blogs and are in the swap group but I am not sure about the details of the other ladies. I will add them later if they have blogs. This was last months card submission, anything from the new Fall Winter Idea book & Catalog. I chose Pocket Silhouettes.

To get the green background, I used a technique called reverse masking. I took a piece of scrap copy paper and punched 4 square scallops from the new SU square scallop punch. I overlapped the corners so the scallops would be even in the middle. I sponged through the mask with Kiwi kiss ink. Then I stamped the images over it with Chocolate chip ink.

I just finished this month card- I'll share that this week.

ETA:  I used a 4x4 pice of paper for the mask.  Any size scrap paper will do as long as you can punch 4 squares from the scallop square punch and overlap the corners when you are punching.

Recipe:
Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Whisper white, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Kiwi kiss, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Square scallop punch, god brads, striped in color ribbon.
