Vellum Lantern and orange juice

Diane from Capadia Designs gave me the idea to drink a lot of orange juice! Actually she meant the lid from Tropicana orange juice makes a great holder for a lantern.  I spray painted the lid gold, added some bling and little homemake roses and leaves and wa-la a beatuful vase for my lantern. I took a piece of vellum and ran it through the Big Shot using the Petals-A-Plenty folder from Stampin Up.  Next I cut the top with a scallop punch and rolled it into a tube amd glued it together. I dabbed a glitter pen in the center of each flower to add some pazazz!  Next I made a box with Tami's inststructions and decorated it with Stampin Up paper and ribbon.

Glitter Ornament and a pretty Box

Diane from Capadia Designs has a link on her blog to Everyday Cricut showing how to make beautiful Christmas ornaments starting with Pledge Floor cleaner.  The Pledge is hard to find, but I asked Wal Mart to let me know when they got some in which they did.  It was under $6 for a large bottle.  I checked out Tami's blog and she had very easy instructions to make a box.  I decorated it in beautiful Stampin Up Christmas paper and have been giving the two as gifts.

My unedited work space!

Christina from Creations with Christina told everyone today to grab their cameras and take a picture of their work area.  What a shock!  I always try to keep my room clean and organized, but obviously today wasn't one of those days.  Clutter, clutter, time to find the wastebasket and start dumping all those little sticky notes I seem to stick everywhere there's a blank spot. Christina wants us to send her our if only I can figure out how to do that!  I'm so new at this blog business.

American Ink May 2011

This is the card I made to swap at our May American Ink card day.  I'm finally getting the hang of the difference between a Swap, Workshop, Technique and a Class.  There is so much to learn when you are just starting out as a Demonstrator.

Mass Production

This is a picture of my desk after I had just finished mass producing an Easter card for my American Ink StampinUp! card club.  We meet once a month and have a swap, make and take and demonstrate a technique.  Of course there always has to be food involved!  There are usually 12 of us or more and we have a great time.  I always look forward to our monthly meeting.
