Whatever Will You Do With All Those Pieces??

From the Country Living Holiday Kit of course!

As you can see it says Holiday but it doesn't have to be just for the upcoming Holiday right? To tell you the truth I don't think I could Even Use everything in this kit as it has ALLOT of stuff to play with and if I am saying that you best believe its true.. It seems everytime I go in and make something with stuff from it the next time I go in there is even more to play with! SOOOO
I thought I would share what you can do with some of the goodies after the holiday to use up what you have left over!

For this little 3x3 card I used some of my Designer Paper from the Hostess Level 1 pack as well as paper from the Kit and an oval chipboard from the kit, I was thinking I could use this as a nice gift card.

Of course we always need Bday cards and here again I used Designer paper from the kit and a Chipboard star, I also had left over pieces from my Best Ever Simply Scrappin another fast and cute card.

Sooner then we know it Valentine's day will be here! Can you believe it.. Well that's what I though about when I made the next card. Again using the left over chipboard and paper I covered the scallop and stamped the sentiment from "A Happy Heart" from the Holiday Mini and punched it out with the 1 3/4 circle and there you have it.. easy peasy! The ribbon is from the Holiday Kit as well. I {{HEART}} this kit. I have many other cards I have made and you shall be seeing it soon.

For now I leave you with those little samples and hope you enjoyed them. If you don't have your kit and would like to order yours all you have to do is go to that little shopping cart and it will lead you to my Stampin Up! site where you can get your kit.

As always thank you for stopping by and don't forget to spread the Love so you can have a change at my Blog Candy!

For the Holidays

Hello everyone,

Hope everyone is doing well, I have been having fun with my Country Holiday Kit
It is more amazing in person, once you have all the yummy material in front of you. I kept thinking of how it would be a perfect gift for someone to make their holidays projects with. I have a couple of things I will share with you,but those will be on Tomorrow's post. Today I will share with you something I made for my Hostess for this Saturday. I {Heart} the Holiday Treasure Designer Paper and its prefect for you to make cards with it with minimal stamping but still make amazing cards.

Here are the cards I created :

This is what I made to put then in :

All about the Technique

I have been playing allot lately with my stamps and must say that I really am enjoying this technique which is called Masking. This is going to be a quick post as I need to get some rest as tomorrow is going to be a busy day.

For this card I used my Pocket Silhouette set that is so fun to give that affect of a view from a cottage in the country.

For my next card I used one of my fav. sets which is Flores Suaves which is actually from the Spanish Stampin Up catty.. I really enjoyed making this card.

Sorry to cut it short but promise to be back with some more goodies later in the week. As always thank you for stopping by!

Hello everyone!

Hope everyone is enjoying their day. As for me I was actually working on some cards but stopped and was emailing with a dear friend who gave me that push to submit something for Shelli's Monthly Challenge.

Shelli said to make something (open range) that would show what we are thankful for well if you know me that is a no brainier as it would have to be about my babies. Therefore I thought hmm should I make a scrapbook page, then I thought of how I will be taking a trillion pics (OH I FOUND MY CAMERA! HA.. YEAH!!!) and when I take the pictures I always wish I had somewhere to joint down my memories of the moment because I have the worst memory. Then I thought what could I do. Then the light bulb went off and this is what I came up with :

What is it you ask? Well its my Scrapbook prep book! To start to create this album I had to decide what size I wanted it and since I would have to stick it in my bag when we go to our family for Thanksgiving. I had some 5x7 1/2 Stampin Up Chipboard around (ok I always have chipboard around lol) and then I cut it down to 5x6 (2 boards for front and back) and for the spine I cut a 1x6 piece and then I grabbed some DP from the Holiday Mini- Autumn Vine (YUMO) and cut one at 6 1/4 x 11 and then started to make my book. To cover the inside I used another sheet (aren't you proud of me I cut in to my Designer paper!) and that one was cut into 6x11. To bind the book I used our Tombow glue. What I suggest for you to do is is do one board at a time so that way when you close your book it wouldn't be wrinkled inside. Also for the "Blessing" outside I used my Chipboard letters I had left over from Regionals and painted then with my ink Craft Inks!Then took one of my flowers from my Prettiest Kit and dressed it with color as well.

So what does the inside look like your wondering? Well I'm glad you asked..

As you can see for the inside I used 2 of our Clear Envelopes and cut the flap off of both. One of the envelopes will hold my pictures(for now they have my Sassy pics which I took but will soon be replaced with my Thanksgiving pics of the kids) Then of course I am always looking for a pen so that is what I have in the middle I adhered a 3 inch piece of Double-Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon(Chocolate YUMO Chip) and put a pen in there. Then I said well since I made this cute book I have to make a cute little scrap pad right? and so I remembered something I learned watching my SU WOW DVD (see another perk being a demo! lol) and made my own little version.. These pages are 4x6 and scored at 1 inch and used the DP again to cover where it was scored and added some eyelets and into the pocket it went. I am so excited because when we go around the table I will be able to write down what the kids (ok the boys lol were thankful this year) and I can hear it now when I get to the dinner "Ellie why didn't you make me one!" Lol.. Well this project was really fun and so easy I just might surprise them!

Here is another little pic of the inside with the scrap pad out of the envelope :

As always thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful evening everyone.
