Aren't these "CUTE" sooooo LOVING them. I used some sneak peaks from the NEW Holiday mini. A Cute Christmas (Wood 120825 clear 121133), Candy Cane Christmas DSP (20809), Candy Cane BIG Designer Buttons (121718), loving these. They are so BIG. Oh and yes let's not forget the Extra-Large Decorative Lable Punch (120907). It just makes me happy typing in all these new things and this is only a small portion of what the Holiday Mini holds. It goes live on Sept 1st so be ready. If you have not received your copy please contact me. I know and I just couldn't help myself. I so LOVE this little owl(118074). He just screams my name. And let's not forget the Play Date DSP (117168). They just make this little tin adorable. The tin is roughly the size of an altoid tin and inside it holds 5 mini note cards. SO cute!

Mojo Monday 152 something retired something new

I know I just had to pull out this retired DSP (Parisian Breeze 113993), and buttons (Corduroy Baja Breeze) and ribbon(Baja Breeze Striped 111375). I just love them and still had some left. The picture doesn't do it justice but I used the Smooch Pearlized Accent Illuminate Top Coat (121084). It just add such a beautiful sparkle to the flower. The flower is from the Greenhouse Garden set (113824). Love this set. I also pulled out the spritzer tool (107066) if yours is collecting dust, pull it out and use it. I just love what it adds. I know you see the sneak peek. The Extra-Large Decorative Label Punch (120907) it is in the Holiday Mini. If you have not yet received a Holiday Mini contact me and I will get you one. The holiday mini is good Sept 1-Jan 3 and is full of so many fun things. LOVE IT!

First Day Milk Carton & Convention Make & Takes

Okay so maybe I am a little stuck on the back to school. see how my life is with 5 littles. I just love this little milk carton. I used the First Day set out of the mini. It is only available until the end of this month. I think it turned out stinkin' cute. Don't you? My sweet little VT received these today at our visit. I also started cleaning out my scrap room. It can get a little out of hand from time to time. I have been clearing out and have some of my retired sets, wheels, pads plus refill and DSP on sale at the Bazaar here in Blackfoot so go and check them out. I will also be getting my cardstock ready to clear out within the next week or so . So keep looking. I am thinking of having a Retired SALE here at my house. While I was cleaning out I came across the make and takes from convention. They were all so cute and fun. So I thought I would share them with you. They use the Just Believe set, So many thanks, Paisley Prints and Paisley Party Wheel (the Paisley ones are from the holiday mini.

I got my holiday mini yesterday. If you have not received one let me know. I have some on hand I can give you one.

Mojo Monday and School Supplies

Here is my Mojo Monday 151. These sketches are so much fun. As you can see I am still hooked on the Play Date DSP. It is just so fun and perfect for back to school time. I also used my son's favorite Make a Monster. These little guys are so cute with 3 bodies to choose from, horns, eyes, hair, spots, several mouths, and more. The are just out of this world. I also used the large star punch to make the little penants. Aren't they just adorable. I just love them. They are so in right now.

Look what my girls and I were working on yesterday. Yep, school supplies. I think they turned out so stinkin' cute. We had so much fun. In fact it has given me more ideas for teacher gifts. "Whoooo" wouldn't like a bottle of hand sanitizer for the first day of school to sit on their desk if it was this cute. Or a little note book all decked out.
These memo books make such cute journals also. If you have any questions on how to complete any of these projects don't hesitate to contact me.
Also don't forget you can order via my website 24/7. Just click HERE.

DSP Covered Pencil & Owl Punch

I covered some pencils for my kids with the new Play Date DSP. I absolutely love it. You will need paper trimmer, DSP, pencil, 5 clothes pins, Mod Podge, brush, and I use wax paper so it doesn't get on my table.
Cut your DSP (designer series paper) to 1 inch x how ever long your wood part of your pencil is. Mine was about 6 5/8 inch. Paint your paper on the wrong side with Mod Podge.

Roll the DSP around your pencil. Yea, this is hard with one do need both hands. I found it easier to keep the pencil pressed to the table and roll rather than picking it up. Make sure to tuck one end just under the other to slightly overlap. Secure your paper with clothes pins. Make sure to check them so they don't stick to the paper. Let dry 30-60 minutes.

And here you have it a super cute pencil. Don't you just love the little owl that I added to this one.

And here they are in an adorable little box I CASED from this month's Stampin' Success. Absolutely adorable and ready for school.

More Convention

I was trying to find a picture of the main stage that was good, but you are going to just have to imagine what it was really like. HA! The theme for convention was share what you love as you can see from the giant tag hanging. And don't you just love those giant stamps. SOOOO cute. The top picture is a group performing a song written just for stampin up. I just loved it. The next picture is Shelli with her daughter. Their skirts are both made out of fabric that will be coming in the hoiday mini catalog. Can't wait and I can't wait to show you all the adorable stuff that was displayed at convention made from it. Definately a holiday class coming from it. Anyways their skirts doubled as tree skirts. the tops were draw string. Way cute idea.
