Glycerin Colored Dragonfly Dreams

Hello Everyone ~ I have a fun Glycerin Colored Dragonfly Dreams creation for you today.

I had a very productive day yesterday.  I did not have to go anywhere so I managed to get my 3 videos for this week recorded, some cards and card fronts I needed for a project I am involved in, and most of Remi’s birthday card completed.  It was relaxing as I did not have to rush and took my time and enjoyed my creating!  Today I may be going to Barb’s house for a play date.  I will check with her and see if our plans are still good.  My plans are to work on a mini accordion album with a Disney theme.  If I don’t work on that I will find something else to do.  I always have things I can do!

For my 10 Minute Creation today I used a layout I found on the internet and put my spin on it.  I also used my favorite way to color now using glycerin.  I did a Facebook Live showing how to do this in several different ways.  I just love the soft look you get and the fact that there are no streak lines.  You will have to give it a try if you have not tried it yet.  Here is the video showing how I created my Glycerine Colored Dragonfly Dreams creation.

Valentine Treat Holder Idea

Hello Stampers ~ I have a quick and easy Valentine Treat Holder Idea to share with you today.

I had a day of play yesterday.  I had to get the girl’s Valentine boxes ready to be mailed.  I had picked up some things but wanted to make a few things to go in with the other items.  I made 3 different ideas that I will share with you over the next few days.  After I got everything made, I realized I did not have a card so I made a card for each of them which I will share also.  That took me all day but that is ok as I was not rushed and could enjoy my play time!  I then went down to the house to see what they got finished.  I have crown molding in the great sunroom and some baseboard in some of the rooms.  Things are moving quickly but I am certain they will slow down when we wait for the flooring to be installed.

To make my Valentine Treat Holder Idea I used an idea I came up with and modified it to use Valentine items.  This idea would be perfect for the snack size bags of candy you can get.  I had to use a snack size baggie for my candy.  Here is the video showing you how to make this cute treat holder.

 

 

 

Here is a photo of the treat holder so you can see it a little better.

Here is an adorable Valentine's Day Treat Holder idea for those candy treats.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I do not have any plans for today either so I will be playing again ~ that is unless I get called for something at the house and have to go check it out.  Have a Super Saturday and what did you think of my Valentine Treat Holder Idea?

Stampin’ Up First Frost Friend

It’s Friday Everyone ~ wait until you see my Stampin’ Up First Frost Friend creation for today.

I am so excited!  I was very successful at the yard sale yesterday.  I got a twin bed headboard, footboard, and rails ~ I still need another one.  I got a Queen headboard and rails.  And I also got a coffee table.  The headboards and footboards will be painted so it did not matter if they were a little banged up.  When I bought the coffee table, I did not realize it but I have a table in storage that I use as an end table that is a perfect match for it.  I will have the top refinished but there really is nothing wrong with it.  It was a successful day for me.  After we made our purchases, I went down to Barb and Doug’s house to help unload his truck.  I then met the trim guy to go over and see a house that had a chair rail I was thinking about.  I loved seeing the trim in a room and knew it would be a good choice for the look I was going for.  I came back to the apartment and took Bijou out and then went to a friend’s house for lunch.  It was a full day but I still had my Facebook Live last night.  After the Live was over I could finally relax!  It was a very full day!

My Fast & Fabulous series is today.  I used a great set with a color combo that was a new one.  I love how simple this card is and how cute it turned out.  Here is the video showing you how I created my Stampin’ Up First Frost Friend card.

 

 

 

Here is the card so you can see all the details.

Stampin’ Up Decorative Masks for a fun background

Hello Stampers ~ Are you ready for to see how to used Stampin’ Up Decorative Masks for a fun background?

Well I spent yesterday shopping.  Barb and I went to Talbot’s, had lunch, and then did some furniture shopping.  I found several patterns of fabric I liked for a love seat and chair.  I have a few more stores to go to and check out their fabric selections.  I know what I want I just cannot find a love seat and a chair in the same fabric.  I will check out the other stores over the next week or so as there should be some President’s Day sales coming up.  The builder also contacted me about the paint color I had chosen.  That means they will doing the painting soon.  It won’t be long now!  The floors still need to  installed but they have to be in the house for several days so they can acclimate before they are installed.  They also have to have the heat on so it will be a while before that happens.  They installed one of my stained glass pieces yesterday.  I am so excited about it!  It looks so good.  We are still waiting on someone to install the metal roofing accents before they can finish the siding.  I am headed down there tomorrow so I will get some pictures of updates to share.

It had been a while since I had played with my Stampin’ Up stencils.  I pulled them out for my creation today.  I used the brick pattern and Crumb Cake ink to create the background.  The Silver Metallic edged ribbon was added to the top along with a bow.  This panel was added to a Balmy Blue card base.  I stamped the flowers using Balmy Blue and Old Olive.  I fussy cut the flowers and then cut the Old Olive one apart to form the leaves.  I attached the leaves to the back of the flowers.  The flowers were then added to the card base using dimensionals.  To finish off the card some rhinestones were added to the center of the flowers for some sparkle.  Here is the completed Stampin’ Up Decorative Masks for a fun background.

Look at how I used a stencil for this greeting card making idea!

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I am headed to a Lion’s Club yard sale this morning to see if I can find some headboards and footboards that I can paint and use in my guest rooms.  I also want to see if I can find a coffee table I can do the same thing with.  Wish me luck as it can be hit or miss.  Have a Great Day and have you played with the Stampin’ Up Decorative Masks for a fun background?
