~ Hi everyone ~
Ruthie and I had a great time last night with so many of you during our PJ's, Popcorn and Pajama's Ustream! It was a HOOT ! If you missed it, here is the link to the ...RECORDING . I will warn you though, it went 4 HOURS! LOL!...I guess it was more like a "Virtual Girl's Night Out" with some projects and giveaways thrown in all night! We had A BLAST!
Here's what we made and info/link to go with each project...
PROJECT # 1
I designed this votive candle holder using PSA Essential products! If you are interested in purchasing PSA they have an exclusive offer for my viewers! Isn't that AWESOME!
Go to...2 PREPPY GIRLS.com and received 10% OFF all PSA Essential Products. Just enter the code: CRAFTERS at checkout. The offer expires midnight 2/28.
PROJECT # 2
Aren't these ROLLED FLOWERS AWESOME!
Ruthie found the cut file for these super cute and easy flowers on Shelly's blog. She offers the cut file for purchase for a $1.00. You will need to have either, Make-the-Cut or Sure Cuts A Lot to cut them out.
We had some technical difficulties, getting the roses together, during the giggle fest Ustream, but actually, they are super easy to make. Ruthie and I are planning to make another quick video showing how to make them. We will have it posted by the end of the day.
PROJECT # 3 & 4
HEHE these are TOO ADORABLE ! Just makes me giggle to look at them ! Unfortunately, we cannot claim this super cute project as my our own idea. Ruthie found it on Tamara's super cute blog.
She has a tutorial showing how to make them and she even gives you the cut file, of the box, for free! WooHoo! Makes the box that much cuter huh?
"Fun" sized candy bars fit in each box. Ruthie used Peachy Keen stamps for the bunny and leprechaun PKS- 450 Wide Eyed Kids Assortment
for the bunny's face and the PK-470 Happy New Year Face Assortment for the leprechaun's face. Both the bunny and the leprechaun were cut from the Simply Charmed cart at 4". Thanks so much to Kathy and Angelica at Peachy Keen Stamps for sponsoring us and donating two assortment sets!
PROJECT # 5
It's a personalized etched casserole dish. Ruthie surprised me and personalized it for my family :) She purchased the dish at Wal-mart for $7 and used some vinyl, my Gypsy, Cricut, and some etching cream. It came out so cute and I LOVE it.
PROJECT # 6
Looks like a simple box, right ? but...
It opens up to this! Isn't that SO COOL!
This Stationary Box, which I dubbed "the transformer stationary box" was originally designed by Jackie Topa @ Split Coasters Stampers. It looks complicated by it really isn't. I just had to share it with you! It holds, A2 size cards, 3x3 cards, tags, notebook, stamps, and match pen! My version came together in about 30 minutes, however I was LAUGHING so hard at the Ustream, you may want to check out her awesome and super detailed tutorial and video!
