I have a treat for you ….If you live in the Georgia Coastal Low Land area….. On November 5th, I am having a Holiday stamp camp …..I'm still working on the details ….and next week some time I will have it ALL for you …..but today I thought I would share a sneak peek …of my favorite project….. a Tri-Flip-Fold scrapbook…..
I love Morning Mocha Designer Series Paper…..I also love how this album has a Christmas feel without screaming Christmas…..perfect for gift giving…….
are you ready to see a sneak peek of some of the page layouts?…….
In this Holiday Extravaganza…..everything will be cut and scored for you….with a packet of direction with Photos of every layout …..and there are 14 layouts…..and notice …there isn't any bling … you will get your own set of bling …..to do or place where ever YOU want…..I will have a sample of this book with bling at the camp …for those who would rather not have to think…..I like to give every one their choice of personalization ….
So be on the look out for more pictures of different projects and the other good stuff …..
I'm so excited today…. My Dear Sweet Friend, Teresa Hafso otherwise known as The Scrappin' Mama…asked me to be her Featured Artist on her Blog…..I am so honored … I don't know what to say…but Did know what to do ….Create a project just for her…but I couldn't just stop there …I also Created a little picture tutorial to go with it ….SO …Want to see the project that is being featured on the Scrappin' Mama Studio's Blog …..
It is this tiny little 1 inch box , made with the Petal Card Double Punch…these little boxes are perfect for all sorts of things…..this one I made to go on a Halloween Spooky Tree…….
So let's get going on how to make one of this little gems …
You will need the Petal Card Double Punch, Bone Folder and either Designer Series Paper or Card Stock
1. Punch out 4 of the Petal Cards…. Look at the picture to the right…can you see how clear the score lines are?…To get those score lines super clear… Here is an Important tip….. stand up when you use this punch…use two hands, one on top of the other, and after it punches give it an extra push…. 2 Times…..I like to make my desk creek 2 times but that's just because my desk is really old ……..
After you punch either your Designer Series Paper or Card Stock, use your Bone Folder to Reinforce those score lines …..
I'm sorry this next picture is blurry …..
2. Next you are going to use your adhesive and glue two of the petals together… put your glue on the outside of the petal…..At this point don't forget … if you are using Designer Series Paper, the design side you want is facing down… or wrong side up …..
I use TomBo Multi Purpose because I live in GA, where the humidity is really high and it seems that for projects like this ….. it holds better…
Continue Gluing your petals cards together …. like a string of paper dolls……so it looks like this …..
A Nice neat little row ………
now the Hard part to explain …..bring the left and right petal on each end together ….I hope this next pictures helps …
See how it almost Rolls into the box…….
to finish getting your box shape … glue the 2 petals on the end together …..just like you did for the others…..these petals are going to be on the INSIDE of the box…there is enough room for you to pinch those two petals together from the inside…..It really is a lot easier than I'm making it out to be …..
When that's done your box should look like this:
Now you can close your Box by gluing the flaps down or doing that " under over thing" … I don't know what it's is called or what ever way you like …..
If you are going to decorate it and turn it into a hanging ornament…Be sure to close the top first …I used the "under over thing-y" so I had that little space in the center to put a Brad … so you will need the bottom open to secure the brad …..
Here is another tip for you…..have you ever looked really looked at you paper piercing tool….. you have the pokey end and you have the flat end…well the flat end is perfect for reaching into the box and really flattening and securing the brad….. the same trick works when you add a brad to a card or other project…..so they are always perfectly flat ….
I just used Baker's twine to make the loop so my little box could hang…..
So see you're done not so bad …..I made a whole slew of them in just a few minutes….
See the top one in the Picture… Looks like a Christmas Present…..and it is the perfect size to hang on one of those office desk top Christmas trees…..
There is my Halloween Box on the Bottom Row,,, you can get a good look at that " under over thing" I was telling you about…..
and the other ones in fun bright colors… are just Perfect for birthday…..a teeny tiny present to sit on a card that you give a Co-worker or teacher …when you want a little something more than a card … but not really a full gift… just a little extra ….
So what fits in these little boxes?
1 Hershey nugget or Kiss…..or any other individual wrapped single piece of candy…
Eraser tops or baby erasers, you know the ones in the dollar stores that come out for every holiday…that's what one of my kids teacher is using them for …..she lets the kids pick a box when they do something good…they are high school kids and love it …..she also said she is putting candy, paper clips, and all those little things…It's like the days of the "Grab Bags" you never know what you are going to get ….and that's half the fun …..
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial …and don't forget to visit Teresa at the Stampin' Mama Studios….she has some great Christmas ideas … you really should check them out…..

I have been trying to think of away to save money for my trip to the Stampin' Up Convention next year AND save Money for My High School Senior ….who's Senior trip is 10 days in Europe….10 days at $2500.oo, plus all the other senior costs…..so this is what I came up with …..
I washed out a 12 oz Plastic Coke Bottle and dressed it up with some In Color Designer Series paper and some Paisley Petals Designer Series paper and added a little ribbon…..Now I can't remember if it is a 16 oz or the 20 oz plastic bottle but either case … if you fill it with dimes …when it full you should have roughly $300… give or take …..
So I thought that was a neat little trick and I always have Plastic beverage bottles….so I thought I would be a little greener and make my new bank as pretty as possible…..So I then decieded I needed a reminder on my Bank to help keep me motivated …..
So I added a tag… just some punches and a hand written label ….. too stinkin cute… who wouldn't remember to save with a cute reminder bank like this …
Oh yeah …. for those of you who would be interested in Sponsoring my son … email me and I will send you the information needed….
Thanks for dropping by today
Here is a fun fact for you…..Today is National Trail Mix Day,….Yep,…..it is …. how do I know this?….My son is in a video Broadcasting class at his school, and they do the morning video announcements, and they try to find a funky holiday for everyday to add to their "news broadcasts" … So what does that have to Do with Cindy Sue, my white trash queen ? ….. absolutely Nothing….really….
Here's Cindy Sue …
Remember the Card from the day before yesterday… my 5 minute , 50 cent card …..here is a step up version of the card…..so now it about a 10 minute card, and about 75 cents…. anyway ….I just love this image…and I'm not sure is stampin' Up gave her a name, so I'm calling her Cindy Sue, and she reminds me of those loud, outgoing, lots of fun broads…the kind who are the queen of everything but just a little off and lives in a trailer …..we all know one and love her to death …..Remember the old TV show Alice, and the character of FLO,…..
Now take Cindy Sue, and just Change the greeting…
Now, she's saying Happy Birthday!!!!!
Now I just love making her dress as gaudily as possible …..so look closely ….see anything ?
are you sure?
well how about now?
how about now?…..
Look closely at the polka dots on her dress, her shoes and earrings….
they are all shiny and sparkly…what did I use to make it that way?…..Nope not crystal effects and glitter….
you are looking at a sneak Peek of Dazzling Details…a new product …that will be release tomorrow in the NEW HOLIDAY MINI Catalog…..I can't wait …. you are going to be creating your little butt off….
anyway….Dazzling Details is a bottle of liquid glitter with a fine pencil point tip for precise application … in ways that tradition glitter can do….and the best part …NO….I Mean NO Mess…. how cool is that … way cool …. and just like all Stampin Up products…it is coordinated to match all there colors…. the bottle comes in clear, but next week or so … I will be releasing my First Video Tutorial …yup scary I know….but in the video I will show you how to color you Dazzling Details……..

I haven't done a scrapbook page in a while and i was thinking it was about time…And on one of the Stampin' Up Demo Professional groups I belong to , they had a layout in their Weekly Scrapbooking Challenge that really just …spoke to me…I instantly know what to create…..so here it is …..
I used the Best Friends Forever Stamp Set, it is awesome for creating scrapbooks …take the BFF out and you could have an entire album done …all you would have to do is change up some of the bling and placement of the pictures ….I bet you could ….really….
Here is a little close up …. I used only In- Colors…Pool Party, Island Indigo, Cameo Coral, Lucky Limeade, and Poppy Parade, and I also used Glimmer Brads…I also used the Two Tags Die for my bigshot to create my photo mats….Since I was using such vibrant colors but still wanting a vintage-ish feel …I used confetti White Card Stock…..as my base …..
This stamp set is so versatile …. I made a matching card…..Did I tell you … I used vanilla Smooch Spritz on both the page and the card … it is my favorite for sparkle…..actually …..my whole desk is covered in Smooch Spritz…..because I'm too lazy ….I just move paper and stuff out of the way …and spritz away…..Some days you would think I was part of the Twilight cast , because somehow I get it all over me including my face…lol
Ok back to the card…the same elements ….almost the same focal point ….again this could a thank you card or a birthday card …just change the BFF to what ever your heart desires…..
Now BIG Reminders …….Tomorrow …Tomorrow …Tomorrow
yep the BUY 3 get 1 free ENDS TOMORROW !!!!!!!
STampin Up campaign Against Breast Cancer ENDS TOMORROW!!!!!!!
YEP ….. the Summer Mini Catty Ends TOMORROW ….

I hope you all had a great weekend…Hurricanes aside, I hope you all had plenty of time for stamping. I got my weekend silly on , as usual… but for today I wanted to show you a card that is Silly but took me less than 5 minutes to make and only cost me 50 cents… including envelope…..
I used the Not So Seriously stamp set …and just did a speck of coloring with my Stampin' write Markers…that's it …..no layers, no fuss no muss…..This card is 50% cheaper that the cheapest store bought card…..and I love it ….
Remember you are creating and giving a piece of your heart when you give someone a hand made card…so not every card has to have a gaxillion things on it …as long as you made it ….your time and effort mean more to family and friends than an email or anything else ….because it really is part of you …that you are giving them …
Have a Happy week and if you would like to purchase this stamp set or Stampin Up stampin write markers just click the shop now button at the right hand corner of this page and off you go …..and while you are there don't forget the buy 3 get one free Designer series paper
You would not believe how much work goes into getting 3 boys ( that includes DH) ready for a Mom's getaway weekend…..you would think I was moving to the moon …..let's just say that even though I have their meals planned out and in the fridge…all they have to do is use the Microwave…it's only a 50/50 chance if they eat it or not …..I hope the dogs get fed …lol
Since I have been running around crazy, I haven't had much time for creating … so I thought I would show you the latest digital downloads from My Digital Studio…
I just Love ..the smitten Alphabet Punch…that's right a punch…
Did you Know the My Digital Studio have it's own Web page full of tips and tricks….
I really need to start doing more projects with my MDS…..
Here is the answer to a email question I get all the time …"what does my crafting space look like and how do I get my pictures to look so good lately?"
I would show you more but right now my craft room looks like an episode of Hoarders…lol
For my Pictures… I just use whisper white cardstock , to make this little "light box Cubby" and just use my Walmart $15 version of a crafter's "otto" daylight desk lamp…for my photo editing, I just use the software that came on my HP laptop …..just so you know it might take me 15 pictures using my little 4 year old canon coolpix camera to get one good edited photo …just to show you what ever it is that I'm highlighting on that particular project…..
Ok here are some reminders …..
August is winding Down …..so order you Designer Series Paper Today
The Strength & Hope Campaign is also winding Down…..you Need to orders your now before it too late and they are gone …..
I leaving for Stampin Up's Regional Event today …..so I'm not sure if I will be able to post over the weekend or not….but I will definitely have great stuff to show you when I get back ….
have a great weekend everybody
I'm still working with the Christmas Lodge Stamp Set ….it is a really fun set …..
It actually is a really easy card to make … the only problem is, I don't think you could mail it … it is just a wee bit too tall for a standard envelope….Well, I guess you could use a padded bubble mailer…. but I prefer to just hand deliver this type of card….I love to watch the recipients' face light up, when I hand it to them…
I just love the little birds image, and it fits perfectly in the XL Label Punch…
Here is the reason hand delivery is best for this card, Look at that Accordion Folded Medallion …or what ever they are called …it seams everybody calls them something different…..Anyway, thanks to a sister demo, Heather, I learned a faster and better way to make them ….and now… you will see a whole lot more if these in the future…..I'm saving the How-To, on this for my Christmas Extravaganza Stamp Camp in November……
Here on the greeting I embossed it and the little branches on the Lucky Limeade oval …I embossed with the New Pewter embossing powder…I love how it looks Guilded….
Well I'm off today for today… Lots to do to get ready for my Girls Weekend in North Carolina, at the Stampin' Up Regional Event…
Thanks for visiting today…and always my email is Sherry@sherrystampinbella.com
Don't ask what the title of the post means…I'll I can tell you it is Saturday and that's usually when my silly comes outs …..
I'm telling you… I really can't get enough of the colors Island Indigo and Melon Mambo…and today I threw in some Pool Party…
This is a super fast card, the base layer is whisper white and then I just layered In Color designer series Paper …
The Congrats sentiment is from the Stamp Set Tagtastic, a hostess exclusive set….
I did just a tiny bit of sponging around the sentiment, in pool party, and mounted the sentiment with the new Mini Brads…
What I love about the flowers in the bottom corner…that under the button is a layer of pool party designer series paper…but it's so subtle …and they are not overly flowery…
I might dare add that this card could actually be given to a person of the male persuasion. I think that it would be perfect for the new Dad, or even an office promotion…
I really think this is a bright and cheerful gender neutral card …..
Ok … I have to put the silly away for a couple of hours while I mow the lawn …..big yuck… I know … but it seems if I don't do it … no one else will….but when I'm done I will get to play with my new Holiday Mini Catalog Pre-order Stuff … I can't wait …soon I get done with the yucky ….the sooner I get to the fun stuff…
have a great weekend …see you Monday
The Hinesville Farmer's Market was a Blast yesterday….it was a bit hot but that band was awesome…and the new Food vendors …. OMG …..Not to mention the time I spent with my stamping friends….what a great afternoon …It reminded me of the stamp Set Friends Never Fade….
I was looking in my paper drawer and noticed I had this huge stack of Bravo Burgundy…and realized it has been a neglected color for a very long time…and I thought it would be a perfect match with the Friends Never Fade…..I embossed with clear embossing powder …all the ink…I'm still in an embossing mood …lol
First off I have to say… I think this is on of the best bows, I ever made…..I am not know for my bows…lol
I stamped the flower in So Saffron and Always artichoke and then embossed with clear Embossing powder….the greeting is in Bravo Burgundy and is embossed as well …..
While I was at the Hinesville Farmer's Market, my UPS man delivered my Holiday pre-order from the up coming holiday mini catalog …that will be released Sept 1st…..So I should have some sneak peaks coming your way, I can't wait to crack open that box and get stamping …..
Don't forget the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Special running on Designer series Paper…..
the Strength and Hope campaign is winding down so be to order your stamp set before they are gone ….
Have a great weekend everybody …
Oh what a busy day , today is going to be,… starting with my son's Traditional Senior Breakfast…and parents have to attend…..at 7AM….. it too early for me …..I really hope they don't expect me to be a willing participant at that early hour…lol
After that…I'm going to do some more creating …I have a few ideas to work out …yesterday … I decided that since I was going to the Stampin Up"s regional training, next week, I thought I would break out my 2' x 1 1/2' Simply Adorned Charm …and yes I'm still embossing everything ….
Where there is ink …it is heat embossed with clear embossing power…I used the Charming Stamp Set for all those images… This set is really perfect for creating inserts for the Simply Adorned charms…
I also used some Pool Party Designer Series Paper, actually just some scraps I had laying around.. Designer Jewels Pearls, the new Mini Brads, some Victoria Lace and Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon ….There is also a Paper Daisy, and mini safety pin ….can you believe I got all that in there …..
Now on the Backside … the same Charming Stamp Set …all embossed….This side is a little more simple…because you can only fit so much in the charm, otherwise it wont close…The background is stamped with Island Indigo and embossed with clear embossing powder ….Don't you just love how Cherry Cobbler pops against pink pirouette….and of course i had to add the rhinestones and pearls …..
Ok I gotta run ….. Senior Breakfast …If you have any question or would like to purchase any of the supplies for today project … either click my shop now button or email me at Sherry@sherrystampinbella.com
See you tomorrow
I'm so glad it's Saturday, a few tedious chores and then I get to play…..I have a few things floating around in my head for the Kindness Matters stamp set ….I started playing with it …I just love the butterflies…
Sorry about the shadows, the sun was not cooperating with me …..the base colors are Melon Mambo and Island Indigo….that color combo seems to be my favorite these days …Can you believe I fussy cut those little tiny butterflies…..and I used the Island Indigo Pattern paper….a few punches, little ribbon and Baker's twines …and that it …
Here is a quick close up of the fussy cutting…The butterflies curled up on their when I cut them out … and I just used mini glue dots to attach them.
In two weeks I'm going to the Stampin Up regional conference…and it is going to be one great weekend…Part of going is swapping cards with other demos, to get a variety of styles and ideas …and well I needed to make about 25 of the same card to do this …and I really like this card and it would be perfect for this …except … I'm sorry I'm not into fussy cutting THAT many butterflies…
So … I created this version …..It may or may not be the final version that I take with me to the regional conference …either case I still had fun making it …
It's the same basic layout, I just change up the layers and made it a little cleaner. not so much fussy design. I love Fussy design, little bows,strips of paper,matting punches …but when you are mass producing about 50 of them …..easy with a WOW.. is what you want …..
Have a great weekend everybody…..
Between getting my teenagers ready for their first day back to school …..which is this morning by the way…and doing the not fun at all, business side of being a Stampin Up! Demo … My creativity has left the building just like Elvis …..I have several Projects sitting on my desk just waiting for that final piece to bring it all together …..So today …I thought I'd show you …well an idea that came with my first cup of coffee but then …by my second cup ….didn't really work… or the base part didn't … and what I am left with is what I'm calling
The Boho Blossom Butterfly Menagerie…….
I used the Butterfly stamp from the Kindness Matters Stamp Set and the Boho Blossom Punch to make this menagerie….. I love the word menagerie … I think it will my word of the day…..
Anyway ….. I'm going to play around with this today … and see what happens ….I'm the mean time If you have an idea of what to make with this …. PLEASE email me asap at Sherry@sherrystampinbella.com
