A Fun Day in the Stamp Room

I had a Wonderful Day today, got caught up on alot of stamping and swaps. A few of us stampers in my area get together every month and stamp and share ideas. Our next month get together we were given a challenge. It was to decorate a tiny post it note. She mentioned doing something other then a match book. So this is what I came up with: This is the size of an ATC

2 1/2 by 3 1/2. The bottom half flips open to reveal the post it note. With a calendar on top the picture uploaded a little blurry.

This is the other post it note holder, more in the shape of a pack of gum. Which I thought would be perfect with a pack of gum in it for the kids to take to school as a Valentine's treat. I may be making more of these. My 5 year old will need to take treats to school. Let me know what you think of these.

I also had time to make up some more ATC's for swaps. I used the Bridal Bella with a rose for a rose swap on Split coast stampers

This is an ATC I created for my pals that I swap with every month. It is a small calendar with the saying "Take time to smell the dewdrops on the flowers" Just something I typed up. I thought my pals will enjoy having a calendar set up for the year to enjoy.

Happy New Year! Be Safe!

Christmas Gifts and ATC's

How is every one in Blog Land? Did we all have a great Christmas?

I had a wonderful Christmas. I received a sizzix, with 12 die cuts and an alphabet set. Soo much Fun! It was something I wanted and had to order myself to make sure I got what I wanted HAHA!

My husband did go out and get me two bamboo cutting boards a small one and a large one, along with a new frying pan. Which was also a few things that I wanted for the kitchen. He also got me three new sets of clear rubber stamps. I will try to post pictures later. My Lovely mom gave me a new House Mouse stamp and a carry and go ribbon case because she knows I have an addiction to ribbon.

From my secret sister I received a cigar box, undecorated, so I can't wait to decorate that! Inside was a moose and bear stamp, along with ribbon, stampin up ink pad, and a box filled with chocolates. And three tag christmas cards. A wonderful surprise just before Christmas.

This is an ATC I made a while back. It is stamped with Stamps by Judith. Obviously the camera shot is not the best.

My mom and I joined an ATC

House Mouse swap on split coast stampers, where we had to use a certain House Mouse and incorporate it into something else and this is what my mom came up with. She sprinkled glitter all around the globe to make it look like a real snow globe and that is a real picture she took of her home while it was snowing. This picture does it no good it is totally a neat idea! I had to share with you!

This is what I was able to come up with, not quite as neat as the snow globe, but still pretty creative. I needed some more inspiration before I worked on this. But what canI say!

Blog Candy at DeStampinCorner

There is blog candy give away at Go and check it out! I recently found her blog through Angelosity! Also a wonderful blogger at go and check her out too. They both do wonderful work!

I have been very busy trying to work and get ready for Christmas. My lovely Husband helped me out and wrapped all of Santa's presents for the boys and hid them in our closet. Well the oldest boy told me last night that there were presents in my closet just fo him and that they should be under the tree. So Santa presents were spotted. Darn now where am I going to hide them. Any way we are going to have to rewrap with different paper and hope he understands to stay out of mommy's room. So that Santa can still bring them. I think we will take them to the neighbors house for hiding.

We have 4 inches of snow on the ground and it is pretty! Wish I could stay home and stamp but I have to get to work. Have a great Day!

School Candy Bags

Dallas's Birthday Treat Bags!

I was cleaning things up and just realized that I did not post the Birthday Bags I made up filled with candy. The bear is an unknown stamp, the balloons and hats are stampin up. My mom punched out the Happy Birthday Balloons on her sizzix. I stamped the Happy Birthday Saying on them, a stamp also from stampin up. Then there is also spots of confetti stamped all over them. For added color, another unknown stamp. Dallas had alot of fun passing out his Birthday Treat bags. I had a lot of fun making them. There was 19 bags all together.

Don't forget to check out my Envelope swap at the Split Coast Stampers. Under cards. It is not going as well as I expected it too. Maybe it is because my numbers are too low and I am too new. Just trying to make myself feel better.
