Making rosettes

Hello,
So excited to share my latest project with you. 

My brother-in-law, Juan and 6 other Genentech employees are all co-owners to Three Mile Brewing Company in Davis.  This week from Feb. 14-18, they are celebrating their 2 year anniversary and I was asked to help make the decorations. I was tasked to make over 40 of these rosettes all in black and white. 
Here are some of them.
 Here is the variety of papers I bought at It's All About the Scrapbook store in Dixon.  They have THE BEST paper selection!!
 Here is part of the selection all made.
 
 Then, I decided to add white centers to the  large black ones.
 Stephanie made the burlap banners, it says, "Cheers to 2 Years"
 Here's a few close ups of the rosettes hung on the wall.
 Jaime hung a few of them in the windows with fishing line.
 Here are some more rosettes hanging from the ceiling.

Thank you Shelley and Nicole for helping me!
I will be publishing a video on how to make these rosettes soon!

Happy 2nd Anniversary to the Three Mile Brewing Company! Looking forward to many more years to come!!! Go to Davis and celebrate with them!

Thank you for checking in!
Looking forward to sharing more with you next time.

A Box with dividers for the Stampin' Up! Blends


Hello,
I had my fellow demonstrator, Kim,  loan me her Stampin' Up! Blends for my Open House.  She asked me about having a container to hold them all, so I suggested a Paper Pumpkin box.

And as a "Thank You", before I returned the markers, I decorated her Paper Pumpkin box and made a divider/holder to have inside.  I followed Holly Smith's tutorial on YouTube. Holly's  instructions were clear and easy to follow.
All it took was 2 sheets of 12 X 12 Whisper White cardstock, a scoring tool, and some glue.

Here is the outside, I used some retired DSP to cover the outside, and cut out letters in Old Olive to spell out "BLENDS."
 Here is the inside with the dividers with the entire set of Blends, all 27, including a spot for the "Color Lifter" marker on the right.
I set them in them using the ROYGBIV order, but I have seen it the markers placed alphabetical order too.
 Here is a close up of the divider.
 This is the divider without the markers.
If anyone is interested, I would be happy to make one for you.  
Let me know.
Thank you for checking in!

Had a great day of crafting with my fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators

Hello,
I just spent some time with my fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators on Saturday and we shared some great ideas.  These are the 7 projects we all made that day.  It was a WONDERFUL day of FRIENDSHIP, FOOD, and FUN!!!
The first project is a Birthday treat box made from a 6 X 6 sheet of paper.
Here is a side view of the box that is tied closed with some Baker's Twine. There are Balloons punched with the Balloon Bouquet punch and the Myths & Magic Glimmer paper.
The second project uses a Striped Treat Bag and making it into a gusseted treat bag for Valentine's Day.  We also used the Sure Do Love You stamp set,  Lots of Love Box Framelits Dies, Gold Binder Clips, Gold Doilies, and Love Mini Tinsel Trim.
 Here we used the new stamp set, Bubble Over and the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits Dies, Silver Doiles, Shimmer Ribbon pack, and Tutti-Frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequins.  My favorite part were the silver "bottle caps" that were cut using the framelits. 
SO CUTE!!
For this card, we used the Happy Wishes stamp set and Stampin' Write Markers to accent the stamped image.  We also added the Petal Passion Embellishments.
 This card uses the Party Panda, the Myths & Magic Glimmer paper, In Color Bitty Bows, and Smoky Slate and Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends for the bottom shadow and the cheeks on the panda.
 Using the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes, we embossed them with the Petal Pair Textured Embossing Folder and used sponge daubers to "color" them in. We stamped using the A Good Day stamp set, Baker's Twine, and the 1-3/8" and 1-1/8" scallop circle punches. We also punched a 2-1/4" circle punch to "line" the inside of the envelope.
 We decorated a Silver Mini Gable Boxes with the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper, the Sure Do Love You stamp set, the Lots of Love Box Framelits Dies, and Basic Gray 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon.
 Here is a side view of the box.


Thank you for checking in! 

Which one was your favorite project?

Brandon's Farewell Celebration!!!

Hello,
My friend Shelley's son Brandon just got a job in Seattle and I was asked to help with decorations.  This is what I came up with.  I bought a scrapbook page with the United States and added a little "extra" to personalize it for Shelley.
We went the funny route instead of the normal "Bon Voyage" and "Good Luck Brandon." 
One sign says,  "Bye Felicia!"

The other one said, "FINE. GO." 
I also traced the states onto foam board and cut them out, punched out 2 hearts, and connected them with some twine.  




























I also had a lighted sign that you can choose from a selection of letters to make your own sign.



We also had a candy bar.


I made another gift for Brandon's friend's twin sons, I put a "B" for Brandon in Washington and "L" and "A" for Liam and Alec in California. They are 4 years old so I thought it would be a great geography lesson too.
This is what the table with all the decorations looked like.  I also made a fold out card that had "Follow Your Dreams."  It was made by connecting envelopes together and decorating one side.  The station had blank cards for people to write their well wishes and the cards were then inserted into the envelopes for Brandon to read when he moves to Washington.
Here's the guest of honor in front of his banner!  Good Luck Brandon and we wish you well in your new adventures!!
Thank you for checking in!

Had another GREAT craft faire today!! October 2017

Hello,
I was selling my wares at the Harvest Festival at the Community United Methodist Church in Fairfield today.
It's a great event with all hand crafted items, homemade bake sale, fundraiser lunch (taco soup, chicken noodle soup, hot dogs and lumpia!!). All to raise funds for local charities!

I love this venue.  Such great fellow crafters and a caring team of organizers.  Here is a picture of my table.  Some were some new items, some were items I've sold before.

Here are some test tubes I had and made holder for them.  
Here is a picture of them close up.

I used a different die called a Curvy Keepsake die and made a few different boxes that holds chocolates. Here is the pumpkin one.

Here are the Fall/Harvest ones.
Here are the Christmas ones, a Santa one and a Reindeer one.
I also made some holders for some Starbucks Via Instant Coffee.
I also made some banners with one side that says "be Thankful" or "so Thankful" and on the other side is...
Merry Christmas.  What do you think?
For Halloween, I made some mummy Hershey candy bars.
I also made some Turkey Pops using Tootsie Roll pops.
Here are some stamped frames I made with some inspirational quotes.
Here is another one.
And here is another larger frame.  I really like the quote on this one.
I also made some Halloween and Fall "crackers" that had 2 Ferrero Rocher candies inside.
Here are some Halloween pencils I made in case you need some "goodies" for the kid's classroom and you don't want to give them candy.
Here are some new gift card holders.  You put your gift card in the front pocket, where I put my business card and the back card has room for you to write "To:" and "From:" on them.
Here are some pillow boxes that had Hershey kisses in them.
Here are the matching card.
Which is your favorite item?
