Good evening, sorry for the delay in getting a new project up. I can't believe how busy this week has been. Tonight I want to share with you the tags we made this week at club. They are made with the Peek-a-Boo Die in the Holiday Mini and the Tags Til Christmas Stamp Set. We used Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Always Artichoke and Whisper White for our tags. They all have either Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Whisper White Baker's Twine to tie them to your packages. The Do not Open til Christmas as a bell added. If you have any questions about the tags please leave a comment and I will be happy to answer them. Thanks for stopping by. I am going to keep this short as I still have projects to complete. Have a great weekend, Tonya

Hello and welcome to the weekend! We are planning on doing some decorating today at our house. Not sure how much we will get done but maybe a tree or two. The little bear that I am sharing with you is actually a case from one that was on Shelli's Blog a while back. I have been wanting to make one but just kept putting the project off. Well after making this one and seeing just how easy they are to make I am ready to make more. He is a small bear just about 3 inches tall but oh so cute. He is made with three different sizes of scallop circle dies and our Flirtatious Designer Fabric. He has brads for his eyes and nose and Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon for his bow. Each scallop circle is hand sewn and stuffed with polyfill or cotton balls then the pieces are hot glued together. If you are interested in making these let me know and I will be happy to show you. Going to keep this quick today so we can get as much as possible done today. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend. Tonya

Happy Friday! I am so looking forward to the weekend! It is going to be a busy one. My kids and I are taking part in our Church Annual Living Nativity both tonight and tomorrow. It is a ten scene drive thru that will involve lots of people and live animals too. The kids are excited and so am I!
Today I have a quick and easy gift bag to share with you. I am always in need of gift bags and love when I can make them myself. This one uses a brown paper lunch sack. I punched a hole in the top for a handle with the Wide Oval Punch then stamped snowflakes across the bag with Whisper White Craft Ink and the Serene Snowflake Stamp Set. I added Whisper White Card Stock along the bottom for snow but first I tore the top edge and added Mica Flakes with Tombow Multipurpose glue. It really holds the Mica Flakes in place. To make the snowman and present I used punches. The present is made with the 1" Square Punch and the Blossom Bouquet Triple Lyaer Punch. The Snowman is made with the 1 3/4", 1 3/8" and 1" Circle Punchs, 1" Square Punch, Word Window Punch, Snowflake Punch and the Bird Builder Punch. I added the buttons, eyes and mouth with the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. My snowman looked a little cold so I added a scarf made with the Marina Mist 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon. Now I just need a gift to add inside. I must admit I have not done any shopping this year and I really need to get busy before I can't find what I need.
Well, I am off to start decorating the house. Have a great weekend and Thanks for stopping by! Tonya

The ornaments and trees were also cut out of felt. I glued two layers together with the Tombow Multipurpose Glue so they were a little strudier, then decorate them with more felt accents made with the Tasteful Trim Die and Dazzling Details. There is a close up below and of course you can add more accents if you want but for me I thought I would keep them simple.
Then because I wanted it all to be easy to store I added ribbon to the back and I am able to roll it all up and all the pieces stay inside ready for the next round of tic-tac-toe.
I had the chance to make a card that my oldest son and I had sketched out the other day so I wanted to share it with you today too! He is inspired by return address labels that we received from our Insurance Agent and we thought I matching card would be perfect. The supplies I used are Real Red Card Stock and Classic Ink Pad, Whisper White, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, and Garden Green Card Stock, Serene Snowflake and Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Sets, Big Shot, Scallop Oval Frame, Snow Burst Textured Embossing Folder, Modern Label Punch, Heart to Heart Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Circle, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Owl Builder Punch, and Blossom Petals Builder. Thank you for stopping by today and now I will send you on your way to the next stop which is Chelsea Malouf I hope you enjoy the hop!

To make the bag I simply cut a rectangle that would go around my item to be wrapped. In this case it is a bottle but it could be anything (bread, cookies, or even numchucks that my 13 year old want to put in the bag) If you want to decorate the front I would recommend doing so before you sew your bag across the bottom and sides or you could add it later but it is more challenging. Ask me how I know? For the front of the back I used the Perfect Pennants Die to cut out the tree. There are three different sizes of triangles on the die so you can make several sizes of trees. I used the largest one. I added Chantilly Crochet Trim to the tree and a Chocolate Chip Scallop Ribbon tree trunk and stitched it to a off white piece of fabric. I added a More Mustard Button from the Regals Designer Buttons to the top of my tree. I then stitched the piece to my Cherry Cobbler fabric before adding the Cherry Cobbler Satin ribbon that was stitched by hand to cover the edges. Now to finish the bag fold your fabric in half with right sides together and stitch along the bottom and side. I then folded the top edge down and stitched it in place to give it a clean finished edge. For this bag I tied it shut with more Chantilly Crochet Trim but you can use any ribbon you like.

way they turned out. I will show them to you at a later date as they are an order for a Women's Group and I want them to give them out first. Today I want to share with you a stocking we did at club last week. It is very similar to the one I showed you last week except when you look inside there is a place of a Gift Card. It was easy to make just by adding another Stocking inside and using the Word Window Punch to make the slot for the gift card to slide into. The most important part is to add you sticky strip to the back with the gift card in place as a guide to show you were to put and not put the sticky strip. This stocking has a gift tag on the front so you can hang it on your tree and everyone will know just who it is for. The colors are Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Old Olive. Such a great traditional color combo and the Designer Series Paper is Letters to Santa. Please let me know if you want to order the supplies for this project. They can be ordered online or by contacting me and I will help you place your order.
Well, I have a big to do list today and grocery shopping is one of those activities so I had better run. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Tonya

Hello and good afternoon today I want to share one of the projects that we will be making this week at Stamp Club. It is a faux tile and is so quick and easy to make with the help of our new scoring board. I love mine and am so glad that Stampin'UP! added it to our products. The stamp set is Gently Falling which is in the Holiday Mini. I used the colors: Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip and Elegant Eggplant for this card but any fall color combo would look great. The layout is pretty straight forward but I did add a little extra texture on the Elegant Eggplant band by using the Big Shot (free this month to all new recruits) and the Houndstooth Embossing folder. The sentiment is from the Pretty Postage Stamp Set and after marking each Thanks for either Elegant Eggplant, More Mustard or Cajun Craze and stamping on Very Vanilla Card Stock I punched it out with the 1" punch and then layered it with the Postage Stamp Punch. Sorry for the short post but I am off to make some phone calls and see if I can fill up my schedule with workshop for November. If you would like to host give me a call. Thanks, Tonya
Also to Stampin'Up! has challenged their Demonstrators to book 10,000 workshop world wide during the Oct 15- Nov 30.
