Fun projects

Jumbo paper clip with paper flower.
Miniture clothes pin with paper flower.

Hanging star, made from the 5 point die cut for the Big Shot.
These projects are some I made up for the Open house I am having in June. I thought it might be fun to do something for the home, and since Independence Day will only be about a month away, what a great project.
The mini clothes pin can be used as a book mark or magnet, all you'd have to do is attach a magnet on the back.
The jumbo paper clip is a great book mark.

More non-wilting flowers

Just some more non-wilting flowers. I found some cute but simple ribbon at Wal-Mart and decided to make some flowers. I am going to take these flowers up to the restaurant to try and sell. We'll see how well they do. I really like a lot of the flower combinations. It's fun to see those colors together.

My mom found a recipe for Rolo cookies. We decided to try something different than rolos, we put Reese's Peanut Butter cups in them. YUMMY!!!!! The recipe is also really easy.


1 box chocolate cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 c. oil

Mix together. Form into balls, press rolo or PB cup into the center and cover up. Bake at 350* for 9 minutes.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies, if you make the cookie small.

Results from Saturday's Stampin' Up Party

Well, those who came to the party did a great job making their flowers. Here's a picture of every one's together.
Rhonda made this set, look at her pink ribbon flower, she put a bell in the middle (how creative).
This one was made by Robbin. I love her color combinations. Janica and Avory made these two. Avory's is the one with three green flowers. I love Janica's purple yo yo flower with the pink button.

This one was made by Stacey. She has some great colors and I love that she used six flowers.

I had so much fun with those who came. I love getting together and making things with these ladies. They are truly amazing and they teach me so much. I just hope I am teaching them!!

"For You" Card

The Make and take card for the Hostess club on Saturday, May 15th is a simple card but something in which it can be used for almost any occasion. I used the Medallion stamp and stamped it in Dusty Durango. Cut a piece of Real Red 1/2" x 4 1/4" then I cut a piece of Thoroughly Modern 1/4" x 4 1/4" and placed it on top of the Real Red strip. "For You" is from the Vintage Labels and I stamped it in Soft Suede then I used the Curly Label punch and punched it out.
It's a very simple but great card.

Flowers that won't wilt

I hate it when you get a great bouquet of flowers and a few days later they have wilted. Not any more. With a variety of ribbon, fabric, and paper you can create a long lasting flower bouquet.
I used an old bed spring as the vase, put some floral foam inside and covered it with floral moss. The stems of the flowers are wire and I stuck each flower into the foam. I tied a piece of ribbon around the foam to help hide it and hold the moss in.
Two flowers are made from paper. I made the lollipop flower and glued the wire to the back. Two flowers are from ribbon and the last is a yo yo flower from some scrap fabric.
I really enjoyed making the flowers and putting this together. I am going to have it as a project for the Hostess club coming up on Saturday, May 15th.
