Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room with my monthly project. Thanks Sheila and I hope you are doing well. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I went to another card party and these are the cards we made. It's fun because a lot of the stamp sets we use, I don't own so it's nice to stamp new things. I haven't had too much time to play in my craft room because I've been busy with appointments and to be honest, it's been too darn hot. I hope you all are doing well and are enjoying each day.
Have a great weekend and Happy Fourth of July to you all.

Hi Everyone, Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here, sharing my project for the month of May. Thank you Sheila for having me :) A friend is celebrating her birthday next week on the night of our card party at her house, so I wanted to surprise her with this paper bag album. This is the front of the album. Her favorite color is green so I went with different shades. (I don't know why these pictures don't show the true colors, maybe it's the lighting). I punched holes to hold the album together, added grommets, then tied different ribbons to each one. I had this flower in my stash forever, it is a two part flower with a brad, so I added a doily, some burlap and jute and a fabric flower under it so that it had layers.
I covered all the pages with designer paper from different stacks. The first page I added a pocket, a tag, a butterfly and ribbon on the side. The stamped balloons, candles, cupcakes and die cut butterfly are all from Stampin' Up.
The second page I added a mini paper bag, which I put mini cuttlebug folders in. The butterfly, heart and sentiment is Heidi Swapp stickers. The flowers are from a kit from Stampin' Up that I ran through my crimper and added a brad.
The third page I die cut a tag from My Creative Time, tied bakers twine around it, added a wooden woman, which I bought at Hobby Lobby. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up along with the tag punch that it is stamped on.
The fourth page I added silk flowers from my stash with rhinestones which are from Stampin' Up. I ran the background, which is also from a Stampin' Up kit through my crimper. The sentiment was cut out from a sheet of designer paper. I made a junk bow from paper and different ribbons and adhered that on.
The fifth page I made a little pocket and added a couple of mini cuttlebug folders.
The sixth page I had a premade tag, I stamped the woman, which is from Close To My Heart. I added a rhinestone to her pony tail and her wrist, the sentiment is from Stampin' Up.
The seventh page I added a premade pocket which has a mini cuttlebug folder in it. The cake is an older stamp from Stampin' Up. I used glitter markers to highlight the candle and the frosting.
The eighth page I added a premade mini paper bag, a crocheted flower, a button with bakers twine tied to it, three mini silk flowers and rhinestones. I stamped that cutie face from Peachy Keen and colored in the eyes and cheeks and added a little stickles to the eyelashes.
The ninth page I had a premade folder, this is it closed.
This is it opened. I used some stickers from my stash for her name. The stamps are from Stampin' Up. I added some stickles to the cupcake.
The tenth page I stamped the month of her birthday just randomly, that stamp is from Paper Trey Ink. I stamped the block sentiments which is from My Creative Time, and some blotches which is from Stampin' Up. I added some jute, then stapled a piece of wire mesh on top. I had that premade tag in my stash, so I adhered that under the mesh.
Finally :) this is the back of the album. I just added a piece of tattered ribbon to cover the seam of the paper.
I tucked these two cuttlebug folders into the pockets of the album.
I can't wait to give it to her. I'm sure she will love it.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here sharing another project for this month. I hope you are all doing well. Thank you Sheila for allowing me to share my creations.
So, I went to a friend's demonstration party. The company is called Pink Zebra. It's soy Sprinkles that you put in warmers. They sell warmers and lights and other things. Their products are beautiful and the Sprinkles smell amazing. Check the company out. They also do community things. It's popular down south but fairly new to us here in the South Coast area. I ended up booking a party to help my friend out. So, I wanted to make these darling favors as a thank you for my guests coming. They have little hand sanitizers in them. I purchased them at Walmart. I used my stitched lollipop die from Emma and cut out 20 of them in different colors. (Not that I'm having 20 people :) just to make sure I have enough and extra just in case.
For each color, I punched out scallop circles in the same tones, then punched out white circles. I used dimensionals on both the white circle and the colored scallop. The punches are from Stampin' Up. All the inks used are also from Stampin' Up. I stamped the Thank you also in the same tone colors. The Thank you is also from Stampin' Up.
Isn't that stitched lollipop die adorable? I love it. I haven't made one with a lollipop yet though :)
The last thing I did was add ribbon to each one. Again, they all have ribbons to match.
So, that is my project for you. Thank you so much for looking.

I saw this cute birthday card on Chic n Scratch. She added a little banner to the corner with a rhinestone. I didn't add that. I decided to make a few of these cards. Aren't they cute?
The balloons and cupcakes were stamped then punched out and I added dimensionals to them to pop them up. It's hard to see the dimension in these pictures. It's always nice to have cards on hand.
The stamp set I used is called Party Wishes along with the punches Party Punch Pack from Stampin' Up. The card stock is also from Stampin' Up and the Designer paper, which is called Cherry on Top.
I can't wait to start making more cards for different occasions. I hope you all have a wonderful week.
Thanks for stopping by.

Well hello strangers. I'm so glad to be back. I had to take some time off to move and get settled. I'm still trying to find my mojo though :) LOL Thanks so much to Sheila for allowing me the time off and thank you for letting me come back.
I decided to make a card. I have to start back slow, until I can get my creativity flowing again.
I used the stamp set, What I Love, to create a background, stamping off in most areas to make it lighter, using Baja Breeze ink, then I added a piece of blue card stock as a layer. I stamped the sentiments with black Momento ink.
I stamped the chick from the stamp set Honeycomb Happiness, colored it yellow and the beak and feet orange with markers, cut it out and adhered it to the card. I added a honeycomb embellishment to the belly. I stamped three flowers from the Petite Petals stamp set, punched them out using the matching punch, then used dimensionals to make them stand out, then added rhinestones to the centers.
Well, that is my project for today. Thank you for taking the time to stop by. Thanks again Sheila :)

I hope all is well with everyone. The days are just getting away from me. I saw this cute Halloween project on Chic n Scratch and decided to make one. I'm so sorry I didn't do a tutorial but we are in the middle of packing and purging :) We are moving so it's been a lot of work, trying to get everything done along with working. I just wanted to make sure I had something to post.
I made this last week and it's been sitting on my table. I ended up stamping the trick or treat to complete the bag. I didn't want to make it too busy.
Hopefully, next month I will be settled and I can start really concentrating on my crafts again. Thanks Sheila for having me and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here with my project for September. I thought I would put my gift box punch board to work. I started out with an 8" x 8" piece of Designer Series paper. I lined it up on the punch board to the S mark and punched and scored each corner. The long mark was scored using the L mark. I guess that makes the box tall. I'm still learning which marks make different size or shaped boxes. This box I copied from www.chicnscratch.com.
After you do all the punching and scoring, you turn the paper over and line up the score lines and punch each corner. Then you put adhesive on two corners. I used the tear tape from Stampin' Up. All the products used are from Stampin' Up.
Then you fold the box together. To decorate, I used the Boo and Owl from the Howl o ween Treat stamp set and framelits to cut them out on the Cuttlebug. The Boo was cut out using the back of a scrap of the paper and the owl was stamped on white card stock with Black Momento ink.
I used glue to adhere the Boo, and popped up the owl with dimensionals. I punched holes in the top with a ribbon punch and threaded white ribbon through and tied it together with gray and white baker's twine. I added rhinestones to the owl's eyes and colored his beak orange with a Stampin' Up marker.
Here is the finished product. Isn't it so cute? Thank you for stopping by, your comments mean a lot. Have a wonderful weekend.
