PREVIEW and BLOG CANDY!!

WOOOO HOOOO!!!  I am sooo excited to be sharing my PREVIEW PROJECT with you!  When January comes around I’m always thinking about organizing.  How about you?  As I was working on an idea for PREVIEW I was thinking about ways to better keep track of some of stuff and came up with this idea….

How cool is this?  I’ve done this before where you use a picture frame with the glass in to make a dry erase board but I thought how fun some of the new products would make a different dry erase board.  This board is BIG…10 x 20 and uses the FUN new Celebrate Banner Kit.  I added some lines (I like my writing to be relatively straight – LOL!!!) and had fun decorating it using the COOL paper and stuff that came with the Calypso Coral Accessory Kit!  LOVE this kit!

Too big?  This would be JUST as CUTE as a singe banner in an 8 x 10 frame!

JOY Banner

And here is the last of my angel projects.  I absolutely LOVE this little banner and it has been hanging on my mantle to Christmas.  I just looks so nice there!  After making my Spooky Banner, Fall Banner, and Snow Banner I had 3 banner panels left from my original kit.  How perfect was that!

The J and the Y is in Whisper White and I made them using letters in MDS.  These were cut out and added to the frame using double layers of dimensionals.  The angel is made using Whisper White, Blushing Bride and Silver Glimmer.  The snowflakes are stamped using Versamark, Silver Embossed, Vintage Buttons.

I wanted to make a special project for some people at school so I made two of these.  One is for my former office mate and one is for the teacher I co-taught one of my classes with.  They are both such terrific women!

For the most part this just goes along with the other two projects I have shown already.  I used a print from the Season of Style dsp pack 12 x 6 then added Cherry Cobbler strips to each side (to fill the frame) and strips of Silver Glimmer paper.  The J and the Y is in Whisper White and I made them using letters in MDS.  These were cut out and added to the frame using double layers of dimensionals.  The angel is made using Whisper White, Blushing Bride and Silver Glimmer.  The snowflakes are stamped using Versamark, Silver Embossed, Vintage Buttons.

Trio of Holiday Gift Card Holders

PreviewGroupShotI AM BACK!!!!  Sorry about that yesterday…of ALL days for them to decide to HACK my site!.  Anyway…I am keeping my BLOG CANDY OPEN THROUGH TUESDAY!!!  So stop by and leave a comment!

WOOOO HOOOO!!!!  And it has begun…PREVIEW WEEK for Create with Connie and Mary Winter Collection 2013!  And let me say…it is beginning and to look a lot like Christmas!

Yesterday we announced our Guest Designers for this collection and we are so excited they will be joining us!  And today…I’m sharing the first Preview Week Project!  (oh…and some BLOG CANDY TOO!!!)

I LOVE designing and making gift card holders.  With giving more and more gift cards I want to package them up with a little something that I made.  I had decided that I was going to make a set a gift card holders for you all for Preview Week and started creating.  And then I just got stuck!  My deadline was looming and one partial one was just sitting their and going nowhere fast!  So what do you do when you are stuck on ideas?  Well for me it’s off to Pinterest and Google Images!  First came the stocking cap.  The front panel flips down and is tucked behind the HO3.  I just couldn’t resist making a Christmas Tree/Snowman combo to go with our Winter Collection logo!  Where’s the gift card?  Well lift up on the tree trunk and it is in a little holder behind it.  My husband’s favorite is Santa.  This is a new take on an old classic.  Pull up on his hat and the gift card is there.

Here’s some individual shots of the gift card holders…

More Monograms

ConnieWell I promised yesterday during the Control Freak Hop that I would share some more wood letters!  These are the ones I made for my roommate Sharon and my special friend Connie (yep, of Create with Connie and Mary) and Annette.

I asked my friends what their favorite dsp was in the new catalog and had to laugh that they all picked the SAME one!  I sure did make doing these quick!

I got the letters a Michael’s and they were plain wood.  I started by spray painting them white so that when I left a gap between the hexagons it would show white!

Sharon

The Gingham Garden dsp is just so happy!  Yep…that’s the best way to describe this dsp…HAPPY!!!!  So many fun prints to use and it just soooo looks like a quilt when you are done!

I punched out a lot of hexagons and made little piles so I could see all the different prints.  This helped me be able to make sure I use a variety and not keep using the same print.

I used Modge Podge to add the hexagons to the wood letters.  I like using these because you have a little ‘wiggle’ time to get it where you want it.

AnnetteAs I said in my post yesterday, once I got all the hexagons on there, I let it dry then added a layer of Modge Podge on top.  You need to make sure that is good and dry then spray paint it with Clear Acrylic Spray and let it dry.

I made the flowers using the coaster board that I added cardstock and dsp to.  I used the Fun Flowers Die and I added the layers of the flowers together using dimensionals.  I finished off the flowers using a Strawberry Slush Boutique Detail in the center.

LisaOkay…and one last one!  My friend Lisa has been my roommate for several of the conventions and she has not been able to go.  Also her birthday is in June and this month, well…she just had a rough start to her month.  So I thought I’d bright her day with a surprise letter.

She loves the Epic Day dsp and so I used that on hers.  It’s made just the same as the others except her flower is all dsp and the center is Crushed Curry Button in the center with Whisper White Baker’s Twine bow on there.

So I hope you have enjoyed my monograms!  I just had sooo much fun making these and they really didn’t take that long at all!  You will notice that I didn’t add the extra flowers on these.  The reason I kept these more simple is because the top three were traveling to SLC then back with there new owners and Lisa’s was mailed to Nebraska!

Set(s): none
Paper: Melon Mambo, Gingham Garden dsp, Epic Day dsp
Ink: none
Other: Fun Flowers Die, Hexagon Punch, Boutique Details, Regals Buttons, White Bakers Twine, Coaster Board, Dimensionals
