Project 92 of 365: Haunted Mansion September 23, 2010

How excited was I this morning when I received a note from Kim Score over at Paper Punch Addiction saying that she would be using my Pumpkin Patch card (project 91) as one of here inspiration links on her blog today?! ¬†I’m telling you there is nothing better than when one of the “WOW” crafters stumble on to you, and like what they see ūüôā ¬†So if you get a chance click on the link above and check out her blog, she has some awesome stuff over there and is a whiz at making great creations from the basic shape punches used by Stampin’ Up!

More excitement….if you can handle it…..I’m having a hard time typing this up because I know I have a box full of new stuff from the Holiday Mini catalog just waiting for me to go start experimenting for upcoming workshops! ¬†(I know…I gotta get that catalog posted up here already so all of you can drool over all the great new stuff.) ¬†I literally wanted almost EVERY thing from that catalog, so Stampin’ Up! definitely did good with this one. ¬†In fact, all the stuff I can’t afford right now is going on a Christmas wishlist to be distributed to all the people who ask me what I want for Christmas ¬†LOL! ¬†Most years when people ask me what I want for Christmas I usually refuse to answer or make up jokes (except for my husband who gets many specific requests…hehe….) because I hate “asking” people to buy me stuff, and I’m worried of someone buying me something that maybe they really couldn’t afford, but thought I would be disappointed if they didn’t get me whatever ridiculous thing I wanted. ¬†But this year I think I will put together my Stampin Up wishlist, because there is stuff in EVERY price range.

Well I gotta hurry up already, and get this thing finished up so I can go play!!!

This haunted mansion came from the new Cricut Cartridge- Happy Hauntings. This is the FIRST year I have ever done anything decorative or crafty surrounding Halloween. ¬†I am probably one of the few people who have never really gotten into the “Halloween Spirit,” ¬†but there is just something about all the great stuff out there this year that I can not resist. ¬†This Haunted Mansion is currently the centerpiece on my table as my FIRST EVER Halloween decoration (that’s right, even as a child I have NEVER had a Halloween decoration in my house. ¬†A few years I dressed up and did the trick-or-treat thing, but we lived so far out in the country that no one came by our place to trick-or-treat anyways, so there was no need for decorations.)

I also purchased my first Halloween stamp sets, so I will soon be showcasing my FIRST halloween cards that I will be making. ¬†What a year of firsts for me… ¬†LOL!

Can you believe that this whole thing is just made out of card stock? ¬†It is surprisingly sturdy!! ¬†When I picked it up to move it from my craft room to the dining room (downstairs) I was worried it would fall apart, but to my surprise it was heavier than I thought it would be, and while the walls did move a bit while carrying it they quickly put themselves back in place when I set it back down. ¬†I made this about a week ago, and have moved it to different rooms, up and down stairs, in and out of the photography booth, yet nothing came apart…..Yay!!!

I was thinking about offering this haunted house as a kit to purchase, but it does take at least an hour to put together (and that was after it was all cut and removed from the Cricut mats), and it can be a bit trying on your patience….but once it is done it is awesome, and if you stored it in a ¬†sturdy sided plastic box you could use this as a centerpiece year after year (since it needs to be glued together to make it sturdy, you can’t fold it up to store after assembled).

If this is something you would be interested in please let me know and make me an offer of what you think I should sell such a kit for.  This house stands more than a foot tall once assembled. (shipping is simple and cheap as it is shipped flat and you assemble it.)  Just leave me a comment with your email or email me at betty.ray020  at  gmail.com

(of course you know to replace the spaces and the word “at” with the @ symbol…just have to type it in this way due to crazy spam creating software that read blog posts to get your email address and fill your inbox with nonsense….the new age of telemarketing….LOL)

You can also create this on your own if you have a Cricut Expression and the Happy Hauntings Cartridge, but you will need the special 12×24 paper to make one as large as this one I made (putting two 12×12 sheets of paper together will not work).

Hope you enjoyed this one….I know I had fun making it!!

Projects 42-45: Eclipse Movie Hats July 3, 2010

Hi all!

Tis true, I am slightly behind on my 365 project goal. ¬†It has been a sad time around the house… My grandmother, who was the closest thing I had to a “Mom” growing up has fallen very ill and has “temporarily” been placed in a nursing home. ¬†Personally, I’m not so sure this is a temporary move for her.

First, I should clarify, that I have a VERY lovely, kind mother, unfortunately I did not know how wonderful she was until I was almost 30 years old, as unusual events resulted in my brother and I being raised by our grandparents and ill father. ¬†This is why I say my grandmother was my Mother-figure growing up, and I have to say Grandma did an AWESOME job raising us!!!!! ¬†My brother is now an Electrical Engineer, with a wonderful wife, and beautiful daughter, and they live Charlotte, NC. ¬†I have a Master’s Degree, the best husband in the world, and the two coolest Bullmastiffs ever, here in Milwaukee. ¬†Who could ask for more??? ¬†I know sooooooo many others who grew up in situations like ours and took such a drastically different path than we did, and I can only believe that my grandparents must have played a BIG role in this. ¬†They never gave us anything for free, we had to work hard for everything. ¬†They never babied us because we had unfortunate childhoods. ¬†They didn’t have a lot of money, but what they did was make sure we knew we could do anything we wanted as long as we worked hard at it. ¬†They made sure we knew life was not supposed to be easy…to get somewhere in life you had to fight for it, and never give up. ¬†They reminded us that if someone told us we couldn’t do something because we didn’t have the “right upbringing” we had to stand up and SHOW them we could. ¬†Because of our grandparents we knew the world did not OWE us something just because we had it harder than others, and that the only way someone was going to get us down was if we let them.

Four years ago today, grandfather passed away. ¬†Now it seems as though grandmother wants to give in and join him. ¬†I visited her 2 days ago (her nursing home is 2 1/2 hours away). ¬†After spending the day with her it was clear that she misses grandfather terribly (they were married well over 60 years, and since they owned and ran a business together they never spent more than 24 hours apart.) ¬†I thought about how hard it was to think of her being gone, but I also thought about how unfair and selfish it is to continue to beg her to fight and stay here. ¬†She is 86 years old and in constant pain every day. ¬†She has had so many surgeries, and there is no way her life will ever be comfortable again. ¬†Yet family members insist on more and more treatments and surgeries to keep her alive. ¬†It hurts me to think of the pain she is in and the fact that she will never be well again, yet is forced to endure more and more pain, instead of accepting the fact that no one lives forever and it is not fair to “torture” someone. ¬†How could they even agree to giving a frail 86 year old chemotherapy???? ¬†When our pets are in pain that we know we can not make better, putting them to sleep is considered the only humane thing to do. ¬†Yet, when our parents and grandparents are in torturous pain, and begging to “go home” after having lived a very LONG and FULL life we pump them with poisonous chemo, and further surgeries just so we don’t have to say good-bye. ¬†SHAME on us!!!!!

I would not wish her agony on anyone, which is why I kneeled beside her bed with her almost lifeless hand in mine and told her how much I loved her, and how thankful I was that she raised me to be the person I am, and with tears in my eyes I told her that if she was tired and if she felt she had waited long enough to be reunited with grandpa that it was okay to go to him, that everyone was taken care of here, and no one would be upset at her for her for going.  She grasped my hands with more strength than I had felt from her in a long time, looked me in the eye, with tears in hers, and said thank you, I love you so much.  It was the hardest thing I have ever said to anyone, I only wish the rest of them would tell her the same and let her go peacefully.

Sorry for diverging from the goal of the blog, but let’s just say writing it out and posting it for others to read is my budget-friendly therapy. ¬†Isn’t therapy all about getting it out and telling someone else so that you don’t hold it all inside. ¬†So thank-you for being my therapist….just don’t send me a bill. ¬†LOL! ūüôā

Today’s projects aren’t Stampin Up, but they are too cool to not show you all, plus they were the other time consumer that has put me behind on my 365 goal (luckily I am only a few projects behind, and there are still 10 1/2 months to get them all done).

In total we made 12 of these hats (I think there was one missing when we took the photos.) ¬†There are 4 different “designs” in these hats (hence counting them as four projects.) ¬†There is my hat which is totally different from everybody else’s (completely covered with black and white photos with red satin ribbon.) There is Tina’s hat which has the basic design of the rest, but then I cut some really cool stuff on my die cutter for her to add, and she used red and black tulle ribbon. ¬†Then there are Team Edward, and Team Jacob hats.

I should also be clear that I did not make all the hats.  The design for all the hats (except mine) was a collaborative idea from Tina, her two daughters, and me.  And everyone helped put the hats together.

The reason I am including Tina’s hat as project 44, even though she assembled it, is because I made the die cut Edward profile, and Cullen Crest for her, and making these die cuts was quite a “project” ūüôā ¬†But aren’t they awesome??

24 of 365: Top Note Business Card Holder June 13, 2010

A few days ago I ran across a lovely business card hold made using the Sizzix Big Shot and Stampin’ Up! Top Note Die. ¬†The one I found had flowers on the front of it (like the one I made.) as well as a link to a tutorial by Nicole Kowalk. ¬†So I used Nicole’s Template (with some adjustments), but I can not find the person who gave me the idea for the flowers on the front again….

Project 24 of 365: Top Note Business Card Holder

24 of 365

24 of 365: Top Note Business Card Holder

I just love the vintage look of this one. ¬†I created the flowers with patterned paper and edged them with chocolate chip ink. ¬†Then, as with any vintage project, I threw in a few pearls for good measure ūüôā ¬†On the top center of the card holder I wanted to add a “Please take one” stamp, like in the tutorial. ¬†I thought I had a stamp like that, but I don’t, so I am still thinking of what to put there…..Maybe I will just create some word art and print it on cardstock to say “StampinBetty”?????

Supplies:

Paper:

  • To the Nines Specialty Designer Series Paper (you need the thicker paper for this project to be sturdy)
  • Autumn Vine DSP (retired)

Ink:

  • Chocolate Chip

Accessories:

  • Sizzix Big Shot
  • Top Note Die
  • XL Fancy Flower Punch
  • White Grosgrain Ribbon (wish I would have used vanilla)
  • Large Oval Punch
  • Tombow Glue
  • Sticky Strip
  • Pearls

To find the tutoral please visit Nicole’ Blog, and then make adjustments as needed for your project….

Project 19 of 365: CosmoBella Hits the Town June 5, 2010

I have the cutest card today…well at least I think so ūüôā ¬†I just wish I would have come up with it last week, because with the Cosmo and all the Pink this would have been perfect for “Sex and the City 2” movie night!

I made this card as part of Splitcoast Stampers Technique Lover’s Challenge #275. ¬†Each Monday they post a technique to try…This week the technique was to create a Tent Card. ¬†This is a ¬†card that stands on its own, has a cut out in the center and a dangling image. ¬†I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted to use this Stamping Bella stamp that my great friend, Kelly, gave me a couple years ago. ¬†Of course now that I found the perfect project to use it on it was MIA. ¬†After much searching I found the Cosmo wielding Bella, and designed the rest of the card around her. ¬†So, no, the stamp is not from Stampin’ Up! but all the papers and brads are ūüôā

Project 19 of 365: CosmoBella Hits the Town

19 of 365: CosmoBell

19 of 365: Cosmo Bella

While this front view is cute it is even better when you view it from the side and see how the card is actually open and the image is really “dancing” there in the center. ¬†I tried to make it look like Cosmo Bella was in a trendy downtown bar with the vintage-looking wallpaper design in the background. ¬†Sure its a bit pink, so this bar probably wouldn’t attract too many men, but if you’re hanging with the girls, having a Cosmo, are your really looking for guys???

Then for some extra 3D effects I added a couple of flowers. ¬†One made with the XL Fancy Flower Punch, the other one made from the Flower on the Tropical Island Bigz Die. ¬†These flowers are so fun and addicting to make. ¬†This is why I prefer to make my own embellishments rather than buy them. ¬†I don’t know what embellishment I would have bought that would have worked the same as the flowers…

Here is a better view from the side so you can get a real feel for why this card is so cool…

19 of 365: Cosmo Bella

19 of 365: Cosmo Bella

The idea behind the tent card is that it is a 3D card that also folds flat so it can be mailed in a regular envelope. ¬†Obviously mine would not fold flat (due to the roses), but a girl’s gotta have fun and I really wanted to give this card some SUPER girl power ūüôā

Everyone is sworn to secrecy…..Do not tell my husband that this card ended up costing me $40! ¬†Don’t worry the card itself did not cost $40 to make. ¬†The issue was that I did not have the jump rings to dangle Bella from, and I did not want to substitute thread (it wouldn’t have the same affect). ¬†I knew it was dangerous to take a “quick” trip to JoAnn’s to get the $2 package of jump rings, but I risked it and FAILED. ¬†Try as I might I just could not go in, buy the jump rings I needed, and walk out ūüė¶ ¬†But hey, I got some new crafting toys that I will share on my blog ūüôā

Supplies:

Paper:

  • Whisper White
  • Rose Red
  • Cameo Coral
  • Sweet Always DSP (retired)
  • Raspberry Tart (retired)

Ink:

  • Rose Red

Accessories:

  • XL Fancy Flower Punch

Project 13 0f 365: Anniversary Explosion Box May 30, 2010

13 of 365: Anniversary Explosion Box

Hi All!

The project I am posting today is a belated Anniversary gift for some friends. ¬†When I posted my first blog they had mentioned they liked the Explosion Box Project, and since I had neglected to make them an Anniversary Card, I told them I would make them one if they told me what colors they liked. ¬†Tina said she liked Green and her husband liked Dark Purple, so I hope the colors I used are close enough. ¬†I will soon find out as I will be giving this to them when I head over there in a little while for a pre-Memorial Day cookout! ¬†Yum- Yum…I can’t wait…..Plus I get to give them their gift in front of other people…and maybe, just maybe, some of those people will want one too ūüôā

I have been thinking about either holding an Explosion Box class or selling them per request (incorporating colors/themes the people want.) ¬†I am still working out how much is a fair price….So if any of you out there would like me to make an Explosion Box for you, or are interested in hosting a class let me know!! ¬†Email me at betty.ray020@gmail.com.

These boxes really show better when they are filled with pictures and momentos….so click HERE to be taken to the original one I made a couple weeks ago which looks more polished since it is full of pictures and other little things ūüôā

Project 1: Urban Oasis Explosion Box May 13, 2010

Hi everyone! ¬†Well more than likely….hello no one ūüôā ¬†I am sure it will be several months before anyone stumbles upon this blog except, of course, the friends I call or text and remind them over and over to come check out whatever cool thing I made that day. ¬†Anyway….. the idea behind this blog is that I have challenged myself to create 365 Stampin’ UP! projects in one year. ¬†When I first came up with the idea I thought I was being crazy, and that this would be a very hard task, but as I searched around the web I saw many people posting several projects a week, so maybe this isn’t going to be as tough as originally thought. ¬†That is, not until you factor in my personality ūüôā ¬†I am a chronic PROCRASTINATOR!! ¬†I have no idea how I survived Graduate School…..I just can’t seem to even start a project until it is so late in the game that there truly isn’t enough time to complete a polished looking result, yet here I am telling the world I am going to complete 365 projects in 1 year. ¬†This does not mean that I am going to make a project and actually post it everyday. ¬†Things will come up, illness, family, vacations, or days where I just don’t feel like it. ¬†On other days I will make or post multiple items….All in the intent that there will be 365 projects here by the end of the year. ¬†Hopefully I don’t follow my normal pattern where I would end up posting about 200 projects all on the last day. ¬†LOL!! ¬†So I need you guys to keep me on track and push me to finish this!!

Along the way you will learn a lot about me. ¬†I like to talk ūüôā so I’m sure you will hear whatever gripe or praise I happen to have ¬†on my mind on any given day. ¬†Hopefully I learn about other people to….. ¬†Share with me, I need more human contact….I sit at home all day with my two AWESOME bullmastiffs, and even though the looks on their adorable faces make it look as though they understand me, and they always seem to give me big slobbery kisses just when I need them the most ūüôā It isn’t the same as really talking with others.

I am a Stampin’ UP! Demonstrator, and being honest, I hope this site helps me meet new customers (and friends). ¬†I live in Milwaukee, WI, and even though I have been here for a few years I know almost NO ONE besides a few people I met at Graduate School who are too busy to lift their heads from their books, and the few friends I have met through my husband. ¬†So basically I am a lonely craft loving girl reaching out to find others like me. ¬†Their are links along the sides of this blog to shop my Stampin UP! site so no matter where in the country you are I can be your “demonstrator.” I am a “house wife,” but this isn’t exactly by choice…..It almost seems as though continuing my education has actually made it harder to find a job. ¬†I started with Stampin UP! almost 2 years ago. ¬†This was mainly just a hobby for me, and a way to get discounts to feed my crafting addiction, but now I am turning what I LOVE into my full time career!!

So on with the show…… ¬†My first project is the cute “Explosion Box Scrapbook” I have been working on the past couple of days. ¬†See….I am already behind and this is just the first project..hahaha. ¬†I really wanted this to be “something.” ¬†I usually start with someone else’s idea and work from there, or when I am learning a new technique I will completely copy their project….whenever possible I will give the appropriate person credit for their hard work. ¬†For this first project I am actually very proud to say I designed this one myself….. ¬†Part of the hope with this 365 project challenge is that by the end of this one year project I will be better at envisioning and designing my own projects.

Without further delay……PROJECT 1: Urban Oasis Explosion box

A great tutorial on how to create this Ornament Punch Flower by Becky Jensen can be found at:  www.stampthat.com/blog/ornament-punch-rose-tutorial

Before assembling the flower I Sponged the edges of the individual petals with Going Gray Ink. ¬†Then after assembling the flower I sprayed with Silver Foil Smooch Spritz, followed by the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. ¬†Sometimes I wish I had not used the silver smooch as it left big splatter marks……but I LOVE the effect of the vanilla shimmer!!! ¬†The Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz is very subtle and may not even show up well in the photo, it just gives it that “sparkle.”

Then I punched 3 more ornaments from the Kiwi Kiss textured paper (retired) scraps….I folded them in half, and then I ran those through my crimper, unfolded them and then sponged the edges and ridges with Old Olive Ink. ¬†I used Glue (not sticky strip as in tutorial) to assemble my flower.

Below are various pictures of the box open…you could easily substitute the retired items used with new ones.

So there….I’ve done it 1 project down and 364 to go…..hopefully I can do the other ones quicker or I will be in trouble.
