Myer's Baby Contest Can

Here's Myer's can for the baby contest. I got the idea of doing a Build-a-bear Uncle Sam from Barb. You can check out her wonderful blog HERE . She has lots of great projects.

If you are in our area and would like to vote for Myer, he has a can at Pizza Hut, Bolin Enterprises, and Casey's Gas Station. Remember, all the money goes to the Shriner's.

Thanks for looking and thanks for the inspiration Barb,


ps - the one thing we forgot to do was to put the muzzle on the bear.

I'm sorry to say I still haven't done any stamping, so I'm showing you another Itty Bitty Button Card. It's the same design has in the previous post, I've just used different Designer Series Paper and a different button.

I did however help my daughter make some decorated cans for a baby contest that my grandson Myer is going to be in on July 4th. You vote for the "cutest" baby by putting money in the cans, then all the money is donated to the Shriner's Hospital. I will try and get a picture of the cans from my daughter and get them posted. They were almost as cute as my grandson.

Itty Bitty Buttons

These really are itty bitty buttons that I used on this card. The buttons have a matching stamp set called Itty Bitty Bits of course. And there are also three punches that coordinate with the buttons and stamp set. All of these items are available in the Summer Mini catalog.

This card is a very simple card. I just let the Designer Series Paper be center stage on this card. I stamped a sentiment and added the button with the coordinating stamp. You could really mass produce these cards and just change the sentiment to match the occasion.

Thanks for looking,

ps - Thanks for the comments, emails and well wishes for my husband Steve, he's getting a little better everyday. It's just not fast enough to suit him though LOL.

Lots of Dots

That's what this card has - lots of polka dots. This is another "old" one that I haven't posted before (at least I hope not). I'm still not crafting and since I have to start on VBS this week, it's not looking like I'm going to get to anytime in the near future.

I have however cleared off one of my memory cards and have now started on my second, so I do have lots of things to show you. I just need to find the time to post them.

This card uses the stamp from the Happy Moments Sale-a-bration stamp set and the colors are Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink and Melon Mambo. I'm so glad they are keeping Melon Mambo but I really hate to lose Close to Cocoa.

Magnetic Boards

I'm sorry I haven't posted in such a long time, but I think I have a good reason this time. My husband has been sick. He's doing better now and it was never life threatening, although I wondered for a while. After three trips to his doctor, a trip to the ER, a couple of nights in the hospital, tons of blood work, X-rays, Cat Scans, Colonoscopy....they finally discovered what was wrong with him. HE HAS MONO! Can you believe it? It's ok to snicker a little bit, I did when I found out. The doctor said he had never seen anyone his age have it before - he's 54. Our daughter had it about three years ago, but it was completely different symptons. We were just thankful that it wasn't anything more serious, although it will take him several weeks to recover.

So that's my excuse, do you think it's a good one? So I haven't done any crafting for the last few weeks and the project I'm showing you now is an old one (and the picture isn't very good). I just had never posted it before. I have made several of these and used them for hostess gifts for my last club. They are very simple to make but the ladies really seemed to like them. These magnetic boards are made from step flashing covered with Designer Series Paper and the butterflies are magnets.

Thank You

Ok, this is the last one for today. I know you are seeing these cards one day at a time, but I have scheduled all these posts on Saturday when I should have been working on the church bulletin.

I can't really tell you much about this card, I made it so long ago that I don't even remember the name of the stamp set I used. I know it was an old hostess set, but I would have to go through a ton of sets to find this one and get the name for you.

I do remember that I watercolored it with Stampin' Up's Watercolor Pencils. And I am pretty sure that the cardstock is More Mustard, Rose Red and Soft Suede.

Graduation Card

I really should be working on the church bulletin instead of scheduling these posts, but I have found several cards that I haven't posted yet and I really thought I should get this graduation card in. I know lots of seniors haven't had their graduation ceremony yet, but for us it is all over with.

This is the male version of the grad card I posted earlier. Instead of the lacy shirt and pearl buttons, I added a tie on this one.

Thanks for looking,

Chocolate Chip Flowers

Here is another Flower Brad Card. This is the same layout as yesterday's post, just different colors. If you don't have any of these great brads, don't worry. I hear (although I don't have my new catalog yet) that they will be in the new catalog in new colors. You will definitely want to add some of these to your order.

I am trying to clean off the pictures from my camera card, so I am scheduling posts as I come across cards that I haven't posted yet. So check back often this week.

Thanks for looking,

Flower Brad Card

A while back I made several of these "Flower Brad" Cards. These are real quick and simple cards to make. I left the sentiment off for now. I will add one from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set as I need the cards.

This card uses the retiring Barely Banana cardstock and the Razzleberry Lemonade designer paper. This is also a great way to use up those little scraps of paper, and I save every last little piece. The stem was stamped using the image from the Cheap Talk Stamp set. If you don't have any of these cool flower brads, you could use buttons instead.

May 2010 Stamp Club Projects

Here are the three projects that we did for stamp camp last month. The first card was cased from Tami White. The second card used the set King of the Grill from the new Summer Mini. I really like that set. And the last project is actually a brag book. The inside used the clear envelopes that Stampin' Up sells and this is where you insert your pictures.

I think everyone really liked this project as most of the clubbers ordered the clear envelopes to make more of these cute brag books. You can make them for any occasion and jazz them up as much as you want. I had in mind just general family pictures for this one as the saying in the middle is "memories". I printed the "memories" stamp from My Digital Studio program as I don't own the actual stamp set. Although I am not much of a "scrapper", I'm really finding a lot of uses for this program. I might even attempt a full blown scrapbook some day.

Retirement Time Again

It's time for Stampin' Up's annual retirement of stamps and accessories.

Hundreds of products from the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog and Definitely Decorative brochures are retiring. Now is the last chance for you to get them before they're gone for good! Some items have even been specially priced.

While the retiring stamp sets are available through June 30, the retiring accessories are only available while supplies last.
