119-122: More Scrabble Tile Jewelry December 27, 2010

It’s been hard to wait on posting these, but they were ordered as Christmas gifts from a friend at work….so I couldn’t risk ruining the surprise.

Some of these were designed using My Digital Studio images in Photoshop, and others were made from photos supplied by the customer.  I just love how these can be customized for ANYONE or anything. 

Be sure to contact me if you are interested in ordering one….I can literally put just about anything on these tiles.  The price for a tile pendant or charm is $8 (which includes shipping anywhere in U.S.)  If you want it personalized with a name, a specific image or photo the cost is $10 per tile (including shipping anywhere in the U.S.).

The $8 charms are any of the ones you see in this or other posts that do not have personalized words or photos on them…… Just contact me and I will send you a paypal invoice!!

It looks like the damask charm might be showing up too dark on some monitors 😦  In person it is a really pretty gray background with a black damsk image in the center….Looks great with any outfit!!

Hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas!!!

Projects 104-110 of 365: Scrabble Tile Necklaces November 19, 2010

Tis true…if you love Stampin Up’s Patterned Paper as much as I do you can wear it!!! 🙂

I’m sure you have all heard or seen this Scrabble tile jewelry trend, so ofcourse I just had to jump on the bandwagon.  And I am so glad I did…..These cute little pendants are so fun and easy to make.  All I did was trim little focal areas out of some of my favorite patterned paper, adhered it to the tile, sanded the edges and sealed it with epoxy resin, attached a jewelry bail (so I could dangle from necklace), and there you have it….I personalized piece of art for your neck or charm bracelet.

I also stamped a small image on one of them….the one with the little vine/leaves was just stamped in Really Rust ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock.

If anyone is interested in purchasing a pendant, necklace, or charm bracelet just let me know….I take custom orders.

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 🙂  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 56-66: New Baby Girl Scrapbook Kit July 20, 2010

Hi All,

You’ve probably been wondering were I disappeared to for the past week….Well I have been cooking up some really cool stuff for you.  To start with I am going to slowly start adding crafting kits for purchase to this blog (like the album kit posted today.)  My goal with these kits will be to make great projects which you can complete at home in about an hour or 2 without any special tools or supplies!!!  How cool is that?

The album kit I am posting today is designed for new born baby girls (I am working on a VERY similar album for new born boys, I just need to find paper with the “right” colors.)  This album is a 6×6 album, designed to stay as THIN as possible (less than an inch thick even after you add photos) so you can just slip it in your bag or desk, and you will have the perfect Brag Book for any time someone asks about your beautiful baby.

For $19.99 you will receive:

1. A very nice 6×6 album with 10 page protectors (20 pages).  This album cannot be expanded, it is designed to stay thin, so all pages are permanently inserted with no posts or rings.

2.  All the die-cuts shown in all the pictures below.  Plus, any die cut made of multiple layers is already assembled for you!!!  So no need for you to try and solve the puzzle of how/where to attach the tiny layers 🙂

3.  All the patterned and solid CARDSTOCK (not thin paper) used.  Again, to keep this album as thin as possible, both sides of each sheet are used.  This is very high quality (non SU) cardstock which is solid on one side and patterned on the other.  Since it is very sturdy you can use both sides, saving you from an unsightly over-bulging album.

4.  You will also be emailed a PDF of all instructions (including photos) to complete the album.  The BEST part is that all you need to complete the album is the adhesive of your choice and a couple markers, and you can complete this album in 1 hour (maybe 2 hours if you add photos right away.)

While this will be presented as several projects (for the purpose of fulfilling my 365 in 365 goal) you will receive EVERYTHING in this post as part of your KIT!!
