Howdy stampers!
Did you get some crafting in this weekend? I did, here is a card one of my downline (Judy) and I prepared for our monthly team meeting. We were inspired by the talented Becky Roberts.

I will be featuring this card in my July clubs as well.

More Kids Crafts!

toilet-role-puppets

Hi Friends-  Remember last week’s post about popsicle stick people? Well, the concept artists at Stampin’ Up! were at it again, today’s post shows you how to recycle those tubes you collect…. Have fun!

Want to teach your children to recycle while doing a fun craft activity? Just save up your toilet paper rolls, then show them how to make paper dolls. It’s simple! Just cover a cardboard toilet paper roll with cardstock or Designer Series Paper; for the face, punch a circle from cardstock using the 2-1/2” Circle Punch. (I shaped the faces using Paper Snips.) Cut the hair from cardstock and use a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker for the eyes. Done! Add as much detail as you want. Let the kids come up with different outfits, hats, etc. (You might even end up wanting to make a few for yourself!) 😉

If you prefer, attach the faces to popsicle sticks so the kids can use them as puppets.

These would be great for a school party. You could even put a small gift or candy inside for a teacher gift.

Hop over to my Online store if you need anything! Thanks so much for stopping by, and don’t forget- I LOVE to see your comments here! thanks for visiting!

Tea Time Dry Erase Board

Today I had the pleasure of spending time with my wonderful upline, Dania Welch, in her stamping studio… this was the project she planned for us (she made hers in the Epic Day This and That DSP). My kitchen and dining room walls are light yellow so I thought the Gingham Garden DSP would look great. It is a 12 x 12 frame, once you design your page and put it under the glass, you can dangle trinkets to hang on top of the glass, and then a dry erase marker is used to write messages, grocery list, recipe, and more. It was so fun to make!

We used punches, oval framelits, and banners… what do you think? I treasured this 1-1 time with Dania and we really got some details worked out for some upcoming events… more details on that another day.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of this project.

Where does Inspiration come from?

Hi There Stamping and Crafting Friends! How are you??? Do you ever get in a rut? Wonder what I do when I need to plan a workshop, club, class or make a card for someone quick?? This post today features Cards inspired by many talented people at Stampin’ Up, Pinterest, and Stampin’ Connection (a website with cards and samples made by other demonstrators)…. without technology and all these wonderful ideas, I wonder if I would be doing as well with my Stampin’ Up! business… I often need a “jump start”, a glimpse of someone else’s cards, 3D items, scrapbook pages, and gifts- and often that gives me the “spring-board” I need to create… where do you get your inspiration?? I’d love to hear from you!

The layered Strawberry Slush ruffled ribbon is adorable on this card!

The beautiful patterns of the Soho Subway designer series paper make a quick background for any project.

Happy Stamping everyone! Leave me a comment and let me know what new stamp set you need inspiration for… maybe I can help!
