Christmas gifts!

I made these cute clear case notebook holders for Christmas. Kris showed us how at the Christmas retreat! They are super easy!

The other two gift ideas were from the swap. My mom made the cute coffee gift using our skinny bags! Amber made the planner by decorating a planner she bought at a department store! Thanks for the great ideas ladies!!

Veering from Christmas just for a post!

I still have more Christmas ideas and cards I would like to post including some of the beautiful swaps from the retreat. I just wanted to post this card because it so pretty. I am spending the day making Christmas presents and would also like to post those. Necklaces for the ladies in the family and notebook cases for teachers.

These were a couple of projects we did at our annual holiday retreat! We had a great time and appreciate the wonderful group we get to stamp with for the day!

Christmas is coming!

This card has a very elegant look to it because of the rhinestones, golden cardstock and seam binding ribbon. I love the added texture the dry embossed and torn paper adds, too.

Quilling Card

This was a new technique in our Stamping Sucess that I wanted to try out. I thought it tuned out pretty!

Fabric card

Here is another card using fabric and I adhered a sparkly flower that had fallen off one of my daughter's headbands. I love the new label punch, too.

Charissa made this card for our club a couple of month's ago using the faux

silk technique. (Stamp on tissue paper and crumple and adhere onto cardstock.) Nice and Springy!

Thank you Charissa for the fun cards. It is fun to see how the different ways our fabrics can be used. I love our new vintage paper.

Spinner Fun!

Here is Lisa's card from our stamp camp. These cards are going to be a lot of fun to make so I ordered the stamp set and it is in the mail. We are going to make spinner cards at our next Roseau stamp club! Yay, can't wait!

Valentine Gift Tag

These were the favors I made for our Stamp Camp in Park

River the other weekend. Thank you everyone for attending and the lovely demos Kris and Lisa who are so creative and do such beautiful work. (I have a link to Kris's site at the left)

These gift tags were run through the big shot to cut and then emboss. I used build-a-brads and lots of punches!! I thought these would be cute hanging from a wine bottle as a gift or just on the outside of a package.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Thank you mom for the lovely Valentine. Sorry for all of the interfence when I was taking the picture. I love how all of our SU colors complement each other! I have seen some incredible projects done with our new fabric which coordinates with our colors too. I will post them soon.

Last of the Christmas projects!

Here is an ornament I made using some fake snow, the Big Shot and snowflake die, ribbon and one of our treat cups.
The second picture are a couple of examples of some wonderful swaps we shared that day! Thank you ladies again for your awesome swaps!!!

More Christmas projects

As I was walking through Sears the ornaments decorating their trees gave me some inspiration. I thought I can make that using some felt and my Big Shot and sure enough they turned out very cute. The first picture are the decorations at Sears and the next is the ornament I made at our Holiday Retreat. I know we have ribbon that looks a lot like the ribbon covering the ball ornament, but I didn't get a chance to try that one. Maybe next year!!

Christmas Gifts that I made!!

Some of the pictures posted sideways. Sorry - I am not sure why?

Here is a message board I made using Kris as inspiration. I also made a Christmas magnet, file clips and sticky note gift for a teacher by decorating one of our SU tins.
