Trick or Treat Bag

Hi Everyone,

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.

Treat Box

Hi Everyone,

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

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.

Dimensional Stars

Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my project for the month. I don't know about you, but, this heat is knocking me out. I find it hard to do anything. Anyway, Angie from chic' n scratch shows how to make these stars and I thought they were absolutely awesome. I even got my son to make one. His is the second one. He did a fantastic job. I also made one with black and pink card stock for a friend, but, I must say, they look so much better with patterned paper. The size to start out with is 2 - 6 x 6 pieces. The black and white one is a 4 x 4. I was going to make a 5 x 5 but thought the 6 x 6 were a good size. The 4 x 4 is a little too small. Maybe the 5 x 5 might be better, we'll see someday.

I thought these could be made for any occasion, as long as the paper is right. Christmas, of course, but, what about Halloween, or Birthdays. I could even see them hanging as a mobile or maybe at a baby shower. Of course you would have to make a ton but, you could recruit family and friends to help out. They are not too bad to put together. I'm sorry I don't have a tutorial, but if you go over to Angie's site, you can follow along on how to make them.

I hope you are all surviving the heat. Unless you are a beach goer or have a pool, then I think you are fine :) or maybe you are sitting in air conditioning :) Have a wonderful weekend. Sheila, thank you for having me again :)

A Card For A Different Occasion

Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my project for the month. Can you believe we are in the middle of July already? I hope you all are enjoying your summer.

I made these cards a while ago because I was trying to build up my items to open an Etsy store, but, I realized that you really have to have a lot of stock and I don't really have a lot of time to do that now. At least I have some cards on hand. The Designer series paper is from Stampin' Up. I added them to A2 size cards which are black card stock. I added a piece of white card stock inside. I used the scraps to cut banners by hand. I ordered the punch later :) I used twine to wrap around the DSP before I adhered it and tied a bow, then I adhered the banners on top of the twine. I punched out a scallop in black and a circle in white, then stamped the sentiments.

The sentiments are from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set also from Stampin' Up. The sentiments are, thank you, I'm so sorry, thinking of you, With Sympathy, get well wishes, and just for you.

Thanks for stopping by. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend. Thanks Sheila for having me for another month.

Butterfly Bag and Card

Hi Everyone,

I friend at work is retiring, so I made her this darling bag and matching card. I put Hershey kisses in the bag but some of us chipped in and got her a gift certificate to a nice restaurant.

Aren't these butterflies gorgeous? They are the thinlits from Stampin' Up. I just love them. I added pearls to them. The card is embossed. The bag has doilies on each side and I used the oval punch for handles. I put a piece of white card stock across so that the butterfly would stand out. After the fact, I should have embossed it the same as the card, but that's ok. I tied a piece of jute ribbon with hemp. I added a tiny pearl to the i on the sentiment.

Father's Day Card from a Sketch

Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my project. I joined a sketch challenge and decided that I would post my finished card for my project. I thought I would make mine a Father's Day card, seeing that it is Sunday.

For my card, which is a 3 1/2" x 5" base in whisper white card stock, I embossed a piece of chocolate card stock which is cut at 3" x 4" and the patterned paper which is cut at 2 3/8" x 3 1/2". The tag was made using the scallop tag punch. The ribbon is Early Espresso and the sentiments are from Sheltering Tree and Teeny Tiny Wishes. All the products used are from Stampin' Up.

I'm so glad that we are in the "KISS" (Keep it simple sassy) season because I am finding it hard to get creative. 

Thank you so much Sheila for having me and thank you all for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend.

Card Party Cards

Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here for another post this month. Thank you Sheila :) I went to my very first card party and I wanted to share the cards that I made. It was fun and I know that everyone does the parties different. At this party, the hostess made all the cards ahead of time, then gave us all the supplies, one at a time to make from her samples. I know Sheila has card parties and does them another way :)
We each got to make 5 cards, she also gave us the envelopes. Some people decorated them their way.
I think they are all very pretty cards and I would re-make them to give away.

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon :)
