Santa Soup plus a Bonus project

HAPPY 12/12/12
 
 
Ohhh aren't these cute! 
 
A great gift for kids if you're going to visit or a teacher gift...or even an office party gift!  Check out how I made these for the Christmas Table setting:)  Scroll to the bottom to see my Bonus Project!
 
I used my TH Pillow Box die (again) to create the suits.  Just remove the end flap with the notch.
 
 
I cut a strip of white for the collar and embossed it with that folder...Divine Swirl(?)  Then some punching for the buttons and buckle. 

 
I have a bunch of test tubes I picked up at my LSS.  Fill with a packet of hot chocolate (about half a pack), some crushed candy cane and a few mini marshmallows.
 
 
Then I made my little tag tied with twine.   Isn't this stamp adorable... Scrappy Moms Stamp from their new Christmas Cheer set.  Works perfect!

 
BONUS PROJECT!!!!
 
I made the same thing (made these first) but these are cutlery holders for the Christmas Table.  My BIL & SIL are hosting Christmas dinner in their home this year.  So, I made her 20 of these cutlery settings for her table.  I made 10 each of the red and green.  She can have kids one colour and adults another.  Or alternating colour for a more festive table setting. 
 
How festive these will look! 
 
 
These are really fast to make and one sheet of 8 1/2"x11" paper makes 2 pillow box cuts.  The best part...you can use up your scraps to build them.

  3. These are adorable.
    Great way to use this die!!!
    Wayne had this die in his hand for me when we were on our trip. But I didn't get it.
    I think Wayne has a man-crush on Tim Holtz products ;)

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
