Faux Leather

I learned this technique from my upline Amy. This was my first try since our tutorial. Doesn't it look like the real thing ?!!!! (it sold my hubby) all you do is:
1. Cut foam sheet larger than image to be stamped.
2. Ink stamp and have waiting on the stamp pad.
3. Using heat tool, heat foam until it starts curling up.
4. Quickly stamp image-press firmly and hold for 20 seconds.
5. Remove stamp and trim foam to desired size.

The Poem :

Pour the packet in a mug.
and the snowballs too
Throw in the kisses;
the snowman sent you.
Now add hot water
and use the cane to stir it.
Sip slowly and soon you'll feel
the warm winter spirit.

Memory Page in a Box

Take a 12 X 12 piece of CS and score at 4'' on all four sides, fold up to create box. For the top you need a 6-7/8 X 6-7/8 piece of CS and score it at 1-3/8 on all four sides. Then just decorate to your liking. =)

Thanks to Linda for sharing this clever idea on her blog.

Advent Candy Dish

This is so adorable. I can see making this for lots of holidays, birthdays, or a just because.

... punch your holes in the corners of the fold and add your string/ribbon. Pull together.

...and tie.

To finish add your favorite candy.

Nov. Stampin Class

This is what we did at Mondays Stampin Class. It was so simple. The ladies just loved it. Perfect for any occasion. The tags were from the stamp set (tags til Christmas) and (delightful decorations).

Supplies: Go to the dollar store and purchase tea lights,cardstock, mathcing DSP and classic ink, stamps that are on the smaller side, tissue paper, copy paper, 1-3/8 circle punch, and the punch you use for small brads (scoring tool).

Fold a smaller piece of tissue paper into 4 layers, sandwhich between 2 ieces of copy paper and punch with your 1-3/8 circle punch. Tissue paper is to soft to punch alone.

Keep the "tissue and copy paper" sandwhich, punch the hole in the center for the wick. Now stamp the tissue circles with the images of your choice in classic ink. Place them on your tea lights.

Heat the with your Heat embossing tool until the wax melts over the tissue paper (its pretty quick) Set aside to cool. Repeat with the remaining tea lights.

Box Bottom: 4.5X4.5 Square. Score 3/4'' on all 4 sides. snip short score lindes to form box. Adhere with sticky strip.

Box Sleeve: 3-1/8X9. Score at 2. 2-3/4, 5-7/8 and 6-5/8. Wrap around box and adhere to make a sleeve. Embellish as you wish!
