Hostess Club Project-Oh What Fun!!!

We made these notepad holders in our July hostess club, and everyone thought they are fantastic gifts.  We took one of the cases that holds our clear mount stamp sets, they come in a pack of 4 for just $5.95, and decorated it with DSP, much like you would a card, and inside is a note pad and a pouch to hold coupons or receipts.  Very easy, and lots of fun.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day,

My favorite armchair

Now, who would have thought you could make an armchair from cardstock?  The pattern for this cute little ditty came from  The directions were very easy to follow. 
The designer paper is from about three years ago called Sweet Slumber.  It is like decorated cardstock.  Great for projects like this.

Fourth of July Masculine Birthday Card

This card will be offered in my July classes, and I think it makes a great masculine birthday card as well as Happy 4th of July. It was made by brayering the raised stripes on the inside of the stripped embossing folder with Real Red ink, then insert Whisper White cardstock and emboss using the Big Shot. The ink transfers to the Whisper White cardstock, and you have perfect Red and White stripes. So easy. The embossing folder cleans up with a baby wipe. The words came from a SU set from 2002, Star Spangled Day. The star was punched with SU's Silver Glitter paper, and mounted on a piece of Night of Navy cardstock.If you would like to attend one of my classes to make this lovely card, and live in or near Graham, NC, please let me know via email or phone. It's a lot of fun and I would love to have you.Hope you have enjoyed this post. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day,Linda

Yo Yo Flower Card

I made a fabric yo yo using Stampin' Up's! fantastic fabric and used Linen thread to sew the button and YoYo directly to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  I used the leaf from the retired set, Sweetheart,  for the stem, and I used two large square scallops from the Scallop Squares Duo Bigz die to make the long scalloped background behind the Whisper White.  I covered the place where the two scallops overlap with a piece of Daffodil Delight 5/8" ribbon.  I mounted this combo to a piece of Tempting Turquoise and mounted all to Daffodil Delight.  A bright and cheery card for a birthday, thinking of you, and even a get well. 
Yo Yo's are easy to make, and not to worry if you do not have any sewing skills, anyone can make one, it's quick and easy.  Learning is fun by following a YouTube video.  Type Fabric Yo Yo in the YouTube search engine, and there you go.  You'll have a yo yo in no time. 
I hope you have enjoyed this post.  Thank you for stopping by and have a great day,
