Winter Wishes...

Another Short Post....
with all the excitement around here there is lots to do and so much catch up on.
I have slowly been working on this for the past couple of weeks.
My goal is to have a whole slew of new Holiday Decorations for my home...especially in time for them all.
I'm almost thinking it will not happen, but I keep truck-in on.
I know I can...I know I can...I know I can!

And what could be Yummier than the Candy Cane Christmas Fabric 121715 from the Holiday Mini.
Big Designer Buttons and some coordinating Satin Ribbons.
Want to make one, only hand sewing required and I will show you. Contact Me.
 Next week after Baltimore I will put up the mitten pattern in a Free Link. In my Share Tab up top!
If you cannot wait all I did was use some punches to help give me some guides.
Then free Handed it to my liking.

Have a Good week...I'm off to Baltimore for a lovely and fun filled Girls weekend!
See become a Demo and join me next time.

Sharing What I Love...Marker Clear Case Inserts!

So excited...
finally finished one project I started...recruit video next!
Stampin' UP!® has a great case for when you purchase the full set of Stampin' Write Markers 119806.
I never had the case, only cause I still have some of the original marker Stampin' UP! started with (sister gave to me) and they did not come in the cool case they do now.
BUT! I think these cases are just as cool.
I purchased the empty Clear-Mount Stamp Cases 119105 Stampin' UP! Offers for 4.95$
To store my markers. Easy for Transport also.

I created some covers to insert for easy Identification.

So I'm Sharing it in a Goggle Doc Link.

Smooch! Gone Good...

  Sam! Gone Camera Bad....Again,
so you really cannot see the details of this card.
The Cherry Spritzes, kinda like how that sounds.
I know you said it HE HE!
Of coarse the Spritzer has become my new go-to tool and is a must have for just that right finish.
Another fun tool and I've think I have mention it, Smooch Accent Ink.
This card was Complete until I picked it up again
and decided to paint some Moonlight Smooch in the lines of the  
Big Shots Textured Embossing Folder Spider Web

Smooch Accent Ink has a brush when applied that can appear Harsh, make sense?
Almost started to cry, why, why, why?...
Can I not leave great things alone.
Until I tried to wipe it off, UH not Happening!.."It's Ink you Dodo".
But what appeared after softening the harsh lines made me keep going and going...
I Liked it, so I'm sharing it with you.
Sometimes bad things, turn into good!
Try it.
Need some Smooch Accent or any Products shown on this card Order 24/7 from anywhere in the US or Call Me, I can Help!
Don't know what is on this card, cause you do not have a Holiday Mini, Call Me, I can Help!
Have a Great Weekend!

Ooooh I give up....

No,  not that....
Taking pics and editing!
  Is that Marina Mist?....maybe my eye's are going.
Oh well, just can't win at it, so you'll get what cha get 
(and then my kids would say,"and ya don't throw a fit")
I ordered a light tent a while ago,arrived broken sent it back and think they forgot me....
credit card co called. Bought a new camera- HATE IT!
Lost the receipt.
No fits here....anymore.
Kind of wish Stampin' UP!® would have this color....
but I swear it is Marina Mist☺
*Re-took this pic (this is not the original) still cannot make it look like Marina
Guess your going to have to come and see it in person.

Blog Break Over.....

 So I took a little leave of "blog" absence, did ya notice?
Didn't think so,
your probably as busy as I am, at least most of my busy is all in my head...somewhat!
First week of school went surprisingly GOOD!
Paper Craft wise, some deadlines crept up on me for submissions I wanted to do, of which I didn't make.
So because I didn't submit and they are not strictly SU, my creations will be up at Splitcoast.....
As soon as I get a new SD Card to take pics of them, must of worked my old one to death and all my back ups are loaded with music, go figure, am I hurrying to get a new one....nope. 
Ill let ya know.
Why I don't care I didn't make the deadlines...check these out
Lilli's Birthday
Ignore the Gigantic Chewy and Dolphins Decor "Decocrap" in my Husbands Man Cave, 
of which I use more than he does...
  Scope out those gigantic Cup Cakes...did em!
Not burned at all, melt(ed) in your mouth, AND ALL GONE! I'm Shocked!
No Kids going to the hospital for food poisoning. 
Lilli kept saying "go buy them Mom", she knows me so well, and probably a little afraid for her friends as well (she actually wanted me to go to Cup Cake Charlies. A little point at the map, "Road Trip" was all she said, I agree)
They made Frames and guess what, that was one of several pic I could not wrestle out of the over worked SD card. She loved it...Made me Happy!
And That is all That Matters!!!!
So before I bore you to death. The card way up top (guess I talked a little more than usual, HA!)
is for the Brand new 
It's not just for Demo's it's for ALL WHO LOVE SU, but it has to be ONLY SU. 
Retired & Current does not matter, make a card that says "Fall" and LINK it up!
Stamp set Paisley Print from the Holiday Mini & the Bigz Tasteful Trim Big Shot Die of which I cannot not stop using.
More Later Gators!

A little Home Decorating

Just a little change...
was all this wall needed.
I had a beautiful flowered wreath in this spot, that just kept whispering "not your style Sam"

A little while ago Kathy a great friend and fellow demo gave one as a gift at one of our Birthday Shoe box swaps, a few of us local demos celebrate for each other through the year.
I knew I had to make one and exactly where it would go, in the spot that kept whispering☺

Here's a close up, you can click the pics to get a larger view.

I used every Big Shot Flower Die I had....
 Flower Daises-Island Floral-Floral Fusion-Birds & Blooms-
Blossom Party-Leaves #2. Glued to Skewers, arranged in Wall Tin stuffed with Floral foam.
Then covered with crimped & shredded SU box filler...not a hoarder (previous post)☺
Off for the last minute school stuff.
Have a Great Labor Day Weekend!

Convention Quilt Square Swap

I did a Fabric Swap at Convention this year with Angie Juda.
Thank You Angie!
She organized an 8x8 80 Block Quilt Square Swap using the Big Shot and the Flower Bigz Clear Die
I only signed up for 4 slots which would give me 40 squares, 
more of a throw than a blanket, and quite a big throw.
"MENTAL PICTURE".... Big enough to cover the top of a Twin bed.
All the participant choose awesome Flower Fabric's, I thought it gave the throw a "Fabby
(bohemian, vintage, shabby chic) Look" not to try and match the flowers.

Very challenging for me, taking it slow and sewing around each petal, but so glad I did it.
I now feel I'm a much improved sewer.
My MIL (♥her, yep really do) helped finish it off.
The soon to arrive Grand Baby now has an Heirloom, to love, wipe her tears, snuggle, cover her eyes during scary movies☺, security, warmth, and pass on to her Future Lovey's so they can do the same!

Like to start sewing with or need the Big Shot Dies for your sewing.
