Disney Paperbag Album and Explosion Box

some pages from the paperbag album

The explosion box with the lid sitting inside.

My sister asked me to make her a couple of albums that she can give as gifts. She's going to
Disney with extended family over Christmas vacation. So, I created the above for her.
I love making paperbag albums and explosion boxes because they are fun and quick. But there's a story behind the Mickey paperbag album. My friend, Twila, wants me to sell it to her. I think she's mainly teasing me. I hate to disappoint Twila, but I just can't do it!! You see, soon after I finished the album, I spilled COFFEE all over it!!!! It was soo depressing. I had to completely remake the album. The second time around wasn't as much fun. Make a third one??? It would completely lose the fun!!! But Twila's welcome to come over and copy this one ;-)

Candle Tin for gift

I love these tins!!! I've used them to make nugget tins and saw the idea somewhere on the net (sorry that I can't remember where) to put tealight candles in them. I found some wonderfully scented ones at Wal-Mart. They were cheap! 30 for 3.50 I used designer series paper from Stampin' UP called Ski Slope and the Felt Flurries from SU. The rhinestone brad is one that I got in a trade a long time ago. I used the Punch Pals scallop circle stamp; stamped it in white craft ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. I used the SU silver elastic cord to tie it to the belly band. I LOVE SU elastic cord and it's only sold during the Christmas season, SO BUY SOME NOW.
p.s. I have some extra tins for my local customers. If you'd like to buy them, they're $2.

Merry and Bright Snowman card :)

This card uses 5 of my most favorite stampin up things :)

#1 The scalloped square made with the Scallop Edge punch on a 2.75" square piece of paper. I just love these!!!! You just center the paper in the edge punch (using the markings on the black guide) and punch each side.

#2- The snowman from the Merry and Bright set. He is just sooo cute! And he's so versatile! I've made all types of gift bags with him :) snowman soup (hot cocoa), snowman poop (marshmellows), snowman kisses (tic tacs), etc...

#3 --Dazzling diamonds!! I love filling in the white parts of the snowman with the 2 way glue pen and then covering him with Dazzling Diamonds. A girl's gotta love her BLING!!

#4- ribbon!!
#5- SU Designer Series Paper--gotta love these last two because they just pull the project together and give it the perfectly coordinated look :)

Can you believe it's November??

Time has flown by! I can't believe it's November already! Where has all the time gone? This week is gonna fly by too! Today I'm getting a workshop and a demonstrator order from SU and another package from a different company for tins for an upcoming Christmas Treasures workshop. I can't wait til the man with the big brown truck visits today!! 3 boxes of goodies :)
So, I'll be creating until the midnight hours :)

Tomorrow I'll be standing in line to vote! DON'T FORGET TO VOTE!! This election is sooo important!! Wednesday my women's Bible study meets. Thursday is my Christmas tags class. Yippee!! And Friday we're visiting DH's aunt! Time is gonna fly!!!!
