Pay it Forward

Pay it Forward

I found this over at Nancy's blog..
she is doing this pay it forward..
so I thought.. what a great idea.. :)

"Pay It Forward" is the idea of blessing someone with a random act of kindness without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness, hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect and share instead of just keeping it to ourselves.

"I promise to send an original creation to the 1st 5 people who leave a comment here. They must, in turn, post this, and send something they make to the 1st 5 people who comment on their status."

Here's what you need to do:

1. Leave a comment on this post. I will send a handmade
gift to the first 5 commenters.

2. Create a post on your blog offering the same.
Email me your address AND a link to
your blog where this is reposted.

3. Send a handmade item to your first 5 commenters.

4. It must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011.

Please do not sign up unless you are fully committed to making your 5 items!

Immortal Love Alterd Tin

Here is a Stampin Up tin that I altered using the Immortal Love paper stack.

It was fairly simple! I addd a zipper flower, a Tim Holtz style flower, feather, Prima Bling (colored with a red Copic marker) and a metal heart embellishment. I also sprayed the paper with peral Glimmer mist for more sparkle.

Quick, Simple and Fast!

Hello Tilda Blog hop

I am party of a blog hop as a part a swap on the Cricut message board. I just love the kindness and generosity that these ladies have shared with me. So in that spirit I will be offering blog candy. Just add a comment and the winner will be selected using a random number generator. The winner will receive this project filled with goodies.

I made the cone using Stampin Ups Sizzix Bigz L Petal Cone die. I then used my big bite to make holes and place the grommets so that I can make a handle.

I colored Hello Tilda using my Copic markers, and cut it out using spellbinders Nestabilites. This was a very simple project, like most of my projects, lol. With 4 kids I have to do things fairly quickly!

Copics I used:

skin: E00, E50

Hair: E23, E25, E27

Egg shell: C1, 00

Dress: Vooo, V01

Shadow: W0

Flower: R81, R83, Y02

Thank you for taking the time to look at my project. Next stop on the hop is Grandmaj at My Little Craftin Corner

Lilly of the Vally birthday card

This is my first card that I made using this line of stamps, and I now think I have a new obsession!
I colored it using my Cpics and I just loved how it came out. I then added a patterned paper, a small sentiment and some pearls for primas E line. I added bling to the stamp both with Copic Spica at you line, and some Stickles. I cut it out using Spellbinders Nestabilities. Most of my projects are very clean and don't have a ot of busy work. They are simple and easy to complete. Looking back I may have added a bow or another patterened paper, but I made it in less then 30 mins! Thanks for taking a look!

Stamping Shrink Material

This is a tutorial on how to use stamp on shrink material. It is a very simple process.

Step 1:Before you can stamp you will need to prepare your material to except the image by sanding it down.
Step 2: Stamp your shrink material with Starzon Ink.

Step 3: Color your image with color pencils. It will look very, very light. To the point that you can bearly tell that there is any color. Once it shrinks the color will be much darker.

Step 4: If you are going to use the material as a charm or any other reason that you need a whole, you must put a hole in it now, before you heat it.

Step 5: Using a heat gun start to heat the material. It will start to shrink and fold up on itself, so don't get scared it curls up. just keep using the heat gun, until it is completely shrunk.

Here are a few shrinks that I made using Magnolia stamps. I finished them by adding Glossy Accents to give it a shine. When I took this picture they were is in the drying stage, which is why they look foggy. Also, in this project I used the matte finish of the shrink material. On another project I used the clear, which I liked better, since it had more of a clear finish. However the Matte finish gave it a more used, old kind of look. So it completely depends on which way you want it to look.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my project. Comments are always great!
