My Stampin' Up! Classes

Wonderful things on my desk for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday...

I found a chipboard ornament-shaped album for only a dollar at an area store and thought it would make a great stocking stuffer for my niece. I think it'll be adorable with black and white photos. At least, that's what I'm thinking in my head!


I'm using Candy Cane Christmas designer paper - this Baja Breeze paper has glittery red dots on it, then I added trim from the Tasteful Trim die for the Big Shot. I just put SNAIL adhesive on one side of the ornament, put it on the designer paper, cut it out, sand it with a sanding block, and add the "topper," which is a solid piece of coordinating card stock I distressed on the bottom and punched holes with a Crop-a-dile.


Do you see those two little clear pails? I picked those up yesterday and want to add some nice paper and ribbon, a tag and maybe some candy. I think they're so cute!


Did you notice the cardinals? I copied those from Stamping Sharon. Here's a closer look.


I hope you'll go snoop at others' desks. Start at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com. Say "Hi" to Julia and start popping in on all of the wonderful ladies who share their craft area. It's fun!

peggy aplSEEDS said...

wow, i love the look of those Christmas papers. the cardinals are so cute!
you asked how long it took me to make an ATC. well, i was so happy that the copic markers made it so easy to color my ATC and since it was just a trial to look at the colors, it took me maybe 10 minutes (that's what i love about ATCs, they're so small and i use recycled cardstock so if i don't like how it turns out i can just throw it away.

Tracy said...

Ohh your mini looks fun. I may have that chipboard album as well.
Ohhh nice I have that punch, time to play with it.

Terry,

It's bad enough that I am running nearly a week late, then I have been plagued with that pesky 503 error all night. Just wanted to drop in and let you know I was here this week. I really love the cardinals. They are my favorite bird and I have them in my bathroom (not real ones, of course).
