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 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.

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 www.chicnscratch.com, 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 :)

Mother's Day Card and Box
















Hello Everyone, Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here posting my project for the month. I made a box and a card for my mom for mother's day. I put a little candle in the box. On the card, I used white card stock for the base of the card. I took another piece as a layer and used the butterfly thinlits from Stampin' Up and cut out the butterfly. I adhered that to the card. I used a glue stick on the cut out and added dazzling diamonds to give it shimmer. I then cut out two more butterflies, one with a piece of white card stock and one with patterned paper. I used glue dots on the white butterfly and adhered that down, then I used dimensionals on the patterned butterfly and attached that to the white one.
I cut out two labels with a punch, one white and one patterned, and layered them. I used dimensionals to pop it up. The sentiment is from Mom You Rock from Creative Time For Me. Finally, I added some rhinestones.



 Isn't the dimension of the butterfly awesome? So pretty.

On the box, I used the same patterned paper. On the lid I used white card stock, the scallop punch from Stampin' Up was used to make a border. I adhered each section to the inside.

On the top, I stamped an image from Butterfly Basics, I cut out one butterfly in white and stamped the other butterfly, then cut it out and adhered it to the first one. I added some twine and rhinestones. The image is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, that was punched out with the word window punch. I just love how this set came out. That's my project for you. Thanks for stopping by and thanks again Sheila for having me.

Screen Divider Card with Envelope


























Hello my fellow scrappers,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share another project for the month. I saw this card on Dawn's site and fell in love with it. I love cards that are different and this card can be made for so many different occasions. I made it for a friend's birthday.

It starts off with card stock measured at 5 1/2" x 11". You need to cut 4 each of layers of colors of your choice, the card stock, I used blue, for the layers, I used white, measured at 2 1/8" x 4", yellow, measured at 2 3/8" x 4 1/4" and black, measured at 2 1/2" x 4 3/8".

The base of the card, score it on the landscape side, (the 11" side,) at 2 3/4", 5 1/2", and 8 1/4". Fold the card in half and put a pencil mark at the bottom of the score line to use as a guide for punching a border. I used a scallop border. Then you can fold the card, mountain and valley folds. On the bottom, the decorative label punch was used to create "feet" for the card to stand.

Then you decorate the top layer of each panel and adhere them together and then to the base and you have this darling card. I just love it. "Thanks Dawn" :)

The envelope was made on the envelope punch board, starting out with a piece of card stock measured at 9 1/4" x 9 1/4", the first score will be at 4 3/8" then you just score each corner from there. I also rounded off the corners. I stamped a cupcake and a sentiment on the envelope.

Well, there you have it, a sweet card and envelope to match. Thanks for stopping by and thanks Sheila for having me for another month :)

How to do 3 step stamping




















Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to show you my project for this month. I decided that I haven't been good at posting pictures of the process of my projects, so I figured that I would show you how I do my 3 step stamping. I'm sure most of you know how to do it, but, I just wanted to show how I do it.

I used The Sweet Life stamp set from Paper Trey Ink. The roses are gorgeous, they have dies so that you can cut them out using a cuttlebug or a Big Shot, but I decided that I would just stamp. Another stamp set I used is Butterfly Basics from Stampin' Up. I used the background stamp to cover the base of the card to give it texture. I used Lavender Lace for that. The sentiment, the butterfly and the fern are also from Butterfly Basics. I stamped the butterfly twice with Soft Suede. The first one was stamped on the card, then the second one was cut out and adhered to the stamped image. I folded the wings up a little to give it dimension. I just inked the top of the fern with Pear Pizzazz to stamp it at the bottom.

The inks I used for the rose are Lavender Lace, Perfect Plum and Blackberry Bliss all from Stampin' Up. The trick is to use 3 of the same color family, light, medium, dark. Or you could use the darkest ink and stamp off between layers.















Here are the three stamps.















The first step, I used the lightest color, Lavender Lace for the base stamp.















The second step, the medium color, Perfect Plum was used. Now the rose comes to life.















The third and final step, I used the darkest color, Blackberry Bliss.




























Isn't it pretty? For the leaves, it's two steps, the first color, I used Pear Pizzazz, which is green ,and for the layer, I used Soft Suede, which is brown.
















That's my project :) I hope you find it useful if you are new to three step stamping. Thanks Sheila for having me and I hope you give this a try.

Lotus Blossom Card - Three Step Stamping

























Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here for my second project of the month. I made a card with the Lotus Blossom stamp set from Stampin' Up. It's such a beautiful flower. Previously I used the same stamp set to create tags. This card was also made for a sketch challenge.

I started off with a white base and used Blackberry Bliss, Lavender Lace and Pink Passion inks from Stampin' Up. The first stamp, you ink up and stamp, the second stamp, you ink up and stamp off once, just on a piece of paper, then stamp on top of the first stamp and the third stamp, you ink up and stamp off twice, then stamp on top of the second stamp. There is a point on each stamp, so it makes it easier to line each flower up. That's using just one color of the ink, you can also use three of the same family color inks from light to dark. I used Pear Pizzazz for the stem. The sentiment was stamped with Blackberry Bliss. Both the stem and sentiment are from the same stamp set.

I tied twine around the base, cut out the border with a border punch also from Stampin' Up, then adhered the base to a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" white card. I trimmed the side a little so that the border wouldn't hang off.

I love this stamp set, I think it is so pretty. Thank you Sheila for giving me an extra day :)
Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.

Easter Wreath




















Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my monthly project. Finally, the snow is melting and the temperatures are rising :) I decided I wanted to make an Easter wreath for my door. I've been seeing the Geomesh wreaths all over the place. They are gorgeous. I need a little practice with making them though, they are actually pretty easy but you have to manipulate the mesh to make it look nice. I got the ribbon at AC Moore, it is wired but it doesn't seem to be a real good quality but that's ok. I got the wired framed wreath, the Geomesh, the egg pick and the carrot pick at Michael's.

Well that's it for me. I have another day this month, the 31st. Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day :)

Lotus Blossom Tags

















Hi Everyone, I hope you are enjoying your weekend and are maybe finding a little time to create. I have been trying to get more productive. :) I decided to make a set of tags. Aren't they pretty? The Lotus Blossom stamp is from Stampin' Up, it's a three step stamp, along with the sentiment. The ribbons, except for the purple one and the rhinestones are also from Stampin' Up. The hemp, I purchased from Lakeside Collections.

I ran my tag, which is from My Creative Time, through my cuttlebug on white card stock from AC Moore, then I ran it through again on Crumb Cake card stock, from Stampin' Up, I cut the white tag in half, then adhered it to the crumb cake tag with glue. I added a ribbon across the middle, stamped the sentiment and added a rhinestone. I added ribbons to the tags and tied a bow around them with white hemp.

Thanks for stopping by. Your visits are very much appreciated :)

Snowy Days
















Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my project for this month. WOW, I don't know about where you live but, here in Southern New England we have been getting snow storm after snow storm. It's beautiful but, there is way too much of it now. People have to walk in the streets because there really is no where to put the snow. I am exhausted and my body is sore from shoveling so much. :)

So, that is what inspired my project. I made a card with the Snow Buddies stamp and die set from My Creative Time (Emma). I stamped the image with a new ink (to me) that I wanted to try called Darkest Night, which is a Black Hybrid ink from My Pink Stamper (Robyn), it's great.
















I stamped the cute snowman and snowlady images, then cut them out on my cuttlebug. I colored them with markers. My base of my card is 8 1/2" x 5", scored at 4 1/4". I ripped white card stock to imitate snow and used my tape runner to adhere them. I used dimensionals on the snow people. I used a glue stick on the edges of the "snow" and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds from Stampin' Up. Lastly, I glued those cute plastic snowflakes on that a friend shared with me.

Well, that is my project for you today. Thank you Sheila for another month :) I know Spring is right around the corner :)

A Baby Shower Card




















Hi Everyone,

It's my turn to share a project this month. Thank you Sheila, as always :)
I am going to a Baby Shower in a few weeks and figured I would have plenty of time to make a card. So I decided on this animal mobile card. Isn't it so cute?
I love how it came out. The base of the card is green card stock, cut at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". The layer is a lighter green card stock, cut at 5 1/4" x 4".

This was a rough draft on what I wanted it to look like. I ended up changing the sentiments.

















 I used the Create a Critter cartridge and cut the animals out at 1" except for the giraffe, which is cut at 1 1/4". I just added some eyes and mouths with a marker, the lion, I did rough lines to make the mane stand out more. It's a little challenge working on tiny cuts.



















I cut light green yarn into strips to hang the animals from, and glued them down, then I cut two strips of tan card stock and glued them down almost crisscrossed. I used that darling ribbon as a border across the bottom.



















I added some of the same yarn to a light green button, tied it in a knot and glued that down. The sentiments are from Robin of My Pink Stamper.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, have a great day. :)
