Simon Says Stamp presents: STAMPTEMBER!

It is a month long stamp party!  There will be sales and new products.  And on the SSS blog there will be giveaways, inspiration, celebration & special guests.

I will be linking to all the fun stuff so keep checking back all month long!


Birthday Haul from my Mom

My Birthday is coming up on September 9th so my Mom asked what I wanted and of course I said craft supplies! LOL  ....what else!

We went shopping on  I got a Royal Sovereign laminator, lots of foil, a toner pen, Silver paintbrushes, dies and Post-It tape.  Plus she got me a new cardigan....but let's stick to the fun stuff.

Here are pictures of what I got:

So many pretty colors to choose from!

Silver Black Velvet size 2 & 4 paintbrushes.  These are great
for watercoloring!

These are stitched border dies.  There is a dot, dash, cross stitch and diagonal.
The leaf dies are the stitched leaves.
Post-It tape is great for masking.

I can't wait to get back in my craft room and try these things out....ok so I have played with the laminator some on the kitchen counter! :)  The floors are in the process of getting refinished so I hope to be back in my craft room hard at work in about a week.

Craft room remodel

Due to a broken pipe flood we had recently we have been forced to refinish all the wood floors.  So that meant I had to pack up my entire craft room!  Ugh!  I won't be able to make anything for a couple of weeks but the good news is my floors will be refinished and I will be forced to reorganize my craft room!  So stayed tuned for good things to come!

Scuba Shaker Card

This was my very first shaker card....learned a lot!  I think the next one will go a LOT smoother! LOL

I was tasked with creating a scuba themed birthday card and that it would make a great shaker.  I searched Cricut Design Space for the elements of the card including the frame with the wave.  The print and cut feature made quick work of this part of the card.  I just added a little clear Wink of Stella and some Glossy Accents to give them some shine and dimension.

Then I used some foam tape, some clear acetate and glass beads to complete the shaker.

This is a top folding card that measures 7" x 5" when folded.

Here are the supplies used.
