Rubber Redneck Box of Sunshine

Today's share is my box of sunshine. This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE. I still plan on sharing everything I made some items used to create these gifts maybe retired. Ironic part when we created this little did we know hubby's grandpa would have a stroke so it was a much needed gift that week to cheer everyone up. For dh and I we were happy that it helped; that was gift enough for us!

Sunshine Sayings

This card I shared for the Stamp Review Crew Hop awhile ago but this was only part of the gift. :)

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Create your card base from the Whisper White Thick card stock.
  • Zip a piece of Crushed Curry card stock through the Big Shot with the Sunburst Thinlit Die.
  • Ink the stamp from Sunburst Sayings Stamp Set (unfortunately this stamp set retired before I shared this project) however their is an image in the Inspired Events Stamp Set that you could used to make the dots, or use the Crushed Curry Marker and ruler to make your own dots.
  • Zip a piece of vellum through the Big Shot with the Stiched Shapes Framelits.
  • Ink the stamp from Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set in Versa Mark then Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and stamp onto the Vellum Circle. Pour Clear Embossing Powder over the image and heat set with the heat too.
  • Die cut out a piece of Basic Black card stock by zipping it through the Big Shot with the Sunshine Wishes Thinlit.
  • Finish off the card by added Silver Metallic Thread and Metallic Sequins.

Sunshine Sayings 2

I didn't decorate every package but some of them I did and this was the outside of the box. I used shirt boxes and those worked slick! It happened to be a dreary day when I was creating these so it sure made the day better!

To decorate:

  • I cut some gift packing ribbon and curled with scissors.
  • Die cut out a piece of Crushed Curry card stock using the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits.
  • I die cut out sunshine again in Basic Black card stock using the Big Shot and Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.
  • Finished with a Rhinestone.

Box of Sunshine

When I got the year gift idea I knew I wanted to do a box of sunshine in it. I've done these in the past and they have been so much fun to create! Of course each family got some of the same gifts but also different gifts to suit that family likes. Some of the items were just by chance too. Hubby and I both busted out laughing when we found the google eye key change. The little coin purse and hand santizer was a happy accident. I was in the check out lane at one store and glanced over and there they where. lol

I added my stamping touch to it by die cutting out a piece of Crushed Curry card stock with the Sunburst Thinlit Die. Then stamping on it with the Sunburst Sayings Stamp Set. So much fun!!

Did you miss out on this die when it retired this past may? I have good news friends!! Right now the Sunburst Thinlit Die is in the clearance rack at a huge discount!! Awesome Sauce!! Get it before it's gone!! Clearance rack is only while supplies last!

The Stamp Review Crew; This Little Piggy

Stamp Review Crew blog banner(2)

Welcome to another The Stamp Review Crew Hop!! We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who will be bringing you lots of ideas for one particular stamp set twice a month!! The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month, you can hop along from one blog to the next gathering all kinds of inspiration for one Stampin' Up! stamp set. Please note the blog doesn't officially start until Monday August 7, 2017 so some of the links may not work.

If you are following the hop in order you just arrived from Holly Stene's BLOG  where she showed you all something fabulous! We are featuring the This Little Piggy Stamp Set (W) item #143919 (C) item #143922 from the Stampin' Up! Catalog. This is such a cute little set!

This Little Piggy

On personal note.Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers for our family. It's been a very long journey and we still have a long journey ahead of us. My dad is still not better thus why no blog posts I just can't keep up. I'll do an update in a few days here. This is the firs card I've made in 2 months. lol Thank you again for calls, texts, emails and all the cards I am greatly touched beyond words!

When I first saw this set I knew it was one I would need to get ASAP. Why?? When I was 3 my parents started raising pigs for many, many years. My brother and I showed them in hog shows, 4-H and several time's went to the MN State Fair with our 4-H pigs. They had pigs for 27 years so it was a pretty big part of my life growing up. Lot of stories, great memories and not so great memories from winning grand champion, finding my awesome husband, loosing a pig named Sweet pea to be found months later, broken hand, loosing part of a finger and some fabulous bacon! My husband and I were dating when my parents still had pigs. Out of all my boyfriends he was the only one that ever would help with chores and cleaning barn. He was a city boy; so he won my dad's approval right off the bat. lol His exact words to me were daughter he's a keeper ya better keep that one. haha

The funny part about the set is I ended up winning it at Onstage so it was meant to be mine! lol They raised a breed called spots so that is what inspired today's card. I colored the pig to look like our spots we raised all those years.

IMG_1904

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Zip the Smoky Slate card stock through the Big Shot with the Pinewood Planks 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I placed the card stock at a slight angle in the embossing folder to create my look.
  • I inked the kisses from This Little Piggy Stamp Set in Basic Gray and stamped on the Basic Gray card stock to create a pattern look.
  • I added some Pick a Pattern Washi Tape, 1/2 Powder Pink Finely Woven Ribbon (I cut it in half to make it a smaller strip) and some Silver Mini Sequin Trim. Love the new sequin trim!
  • Stamp the pig from This Little Piggy Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White card stock. Zip it through the Big Shot with the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut it out.
  • I used a Blender Pen and colored in the image with Powder Pink and Basic Gray Ink to achieve the spotted look. The Powder Pink is the perfect color for pigs too! Love this fabulous new in color! On the back of my circle I added some Black Metallic Thread.
  • To finish I added some of Black Rhinestone Jewels (sneak peek from the holiday catalog).

IMG_1896

The inside was kept simple. Basic Gray and Whisper White card stock. At the top some more of that awesome Pick a Pattern Washi Tape. Bottom left corner I stamped some more kisses in Powder Pink and Basic Gray.

Scrapbook Saddle Up Friday; Project Life 2017 Plan

Life's a Party

Happy Friday Peeps!

Lot's to share today with ya! Did you see the title and think hmmm Holly it's April already. I know I usually share what I am doing in January but it's never to late to talk Project Life Plan's! For me it's an evolving system with change ;) It's been hard to find time for just me this year, thus why this post is so late in the year. I came up with a really fun idea that I am having a blast with!! I will be sharing that idea very soon.

Let's discuss plans:

We definitely are continuing the daily journal style. This is where we are documenting each day. It's been fun to look back on the past years just to see what our day to day life is like, the weather, and etc. At the beginning of the year dh and I sat down and kicked around idea's for a theme this year. We had so much fun with last year's theme we wanted to do that again and see how it went. Last year's theme was New you can view that blog post HERE. January we knew lots of big things were happening this year, lots of things that we would be celebrating.....little did we know how many things we would be celebrating and how crazy it would really be. lol So we decided the theme this year would be............

IMG_0978

AWESOME SAUCE! This truly is fitting our life this year! This year I decided to go with the Black Faux Leather 12 x 12 Album item #135292. I used the Silhouette to decorate the cover with our phrase for this year! How cool is that and so easy to do!!

SAB Card Tin

Some of you have already seen this fun tin. I shared this in the Stamp Review Crew Hop HERE, today I am sharing the details. This is the Card Tin from Sale-A-Bration. I decorated it to fit our theme "Life's A Party". This tin will hold the completed cards for this year's project life at the end of the year I will slide them into the album. Why don't I put them in the album right away? So many of you have emailed me telling me you want to see what I come up with to hold my cards for the year and how fun it is. So I plan on keep doing this till I run out of ideas. lol I used the Balloon Adventures Photopolymer Bundle item #144708 to decorate my tin.

Balloon Adventures

This is one of my favorite bundles and I am so sad to see this retire! You'll want to get it before it's gone!

IMG_0732

Close up of the front of the tin. Looks like a party is going on!

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:
Front

  • I wrapped some Emerald Envy 1/8 Taffeta Ribbon around the tin. I love this stuff!
  • Cut pieces of Pacific Point and Whisper White card stock.
  • I inked the stamp from Balloon Adventures in Emerald Envy Ink and stamped towards the top of the Whisper White card stock. I inked the confetti image from the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set in Crushed Curry and stamped across the bottom of the Whisper White card stock.
  • On the bottom of the Whisper White card stock I added a piece of Party Animal Designer Washi Tape, a piece of Party Animal Designer Series Paper and some Gold Sequin Trim.
  • Using the Big Shot and Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits I die cut out a piece of Tangerine Tango and Gold Glimmer Paper to create my balloon.
  • I added some Metallic Enamel Shapes to the Whisper White card stock and some Brights Enamel Shapes to the Whisper White card stock and tin.
  • Once done decorating the layer of card stock I attached it to the tin with Stampin' Dimensionals.

IMG_0722

These are the dividers. They are labeled Jan. -Dec.

  • Create more dividers out of the white chipboard that comes in the 12 x 12 Designer Paper Packs. I just traced each card that I needed onto the chipboard and cut them out.
  • Each card then was decorated with the Party Animal Designer Series Paper and Party Animal Designer Washi Tape. I altered the patterns and layouts for each card.
  • I used the Thoughtful Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set and  Project Life Date It Photopolymer Stamp Set to label the month's. First I took the stamp from Thoughtful Banner Stamp Set; inked in Pacific Point and stamped 12 hex banners onto Whisper White card stock. Next I inked each month in Emerald Envy and stamped inside each hex banner. I then used the Classic Label Punch to punch out each image. I attached them to the divider card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • To finish the card I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the months.

IMG_0739

I wanted the top to be pretty too!

  • Cut a piece of Tangerine Tango card stock and stamp the confetti image onto it in Tangerine Tango.
  • Add different patterns of the Party Animal Designer Series Paper in the center.
  • Zip a piece of Emerald Envy card stock through the Big Shot with the Stitched Shape Framelits to die cut it out. Place some Gold Metallic Thread onto the back of the die cut.
  • Ink the banner from Balloon Adventures in Pacific Point and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. Ink the Party on in Emerald Envy and stamp inside the banner. Cut out the banner and attach to the die cut. Finish by adding some Metallic Enamel Shapes.

IMG_0741

I am so excited to use this tin this year!! It just screams party time! So that's the plan this year for our project life daily journal. If you made it to the end and read it all good job! lol

Stamp: Balloon Adventures, Project Life Date It, Thoughtful Banners

Suite Sentiments Card

Happy Tuesday Peeps!

I am back up and running! When I posted on the 28th I thought the Typepad issue was figured out...it was apparently NOT. Short version Typepad was basically out in MN only something about security issue with one of their providers. I for one am very glad the problem is fixed!

It continues to be wild here for us. Boy oh Boy what a wild ride this year has been so far! Wedding invites done and out the door, 1st birthday party, bridal shower party stuff done! Another batch of successful parties were pulled off (some how). Kitchen cabinets for my parents ordered! Of course while this is all going on my cousin decided it was time to work on my parent's bathroom.... What a mess and nightmare they had more water damage then originally thought so new bathroom and new entry way will be happening. I crumba and if that wasn't enough my dad fell and got hurt very bad he tore a tendon in his shoulder and tore his rotator cuff. Ughh and yes he will be having surgery we don't know when yet but just in time for calving season. haha April I don't plan on sleeping at all. Haha Life is never dull for sure! I sure hope the rest of you have not had crazy stuff going on like us!

Suite Sentiments Card

Did you know February 21 is National Card Reading Day? SWEET perfect for us card makers a holiday for us :) This card was doing double duty for February. I made this for the Year of Gifts or visit HERE to see all that I have shared so far. I also used it for Sudsol Challenge #156. It uses the stamp set from the Occasions Catalog called Suite Sentiments (W) item #142968 (C) item #142971 and that FABUOLOUSE Carried Away Designer Series Paper item #143608 from the Sale A Bration!

Suite Sentiments

This is a fabulous greeting set! The fonts? Astounding. The statements? Endearing. The stamp set? Breathtaking. It is a must have!

IMG_0171

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Create a base out of Whisper White Thick Card Stock. I use the thicker card stock when it's the base for a card stock since it is heaver.
  • Cut a piece of Smoky Slate card stock. Cut the Carried Away Designer Series Paper into little squares using 4 different patterns. Glue to the Smoky Slate card stock. Reminds me of a quilt.
  • Ink the stamp from Suite Sentiments Stamp Set in Night of Navy and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. Zip it through the Big Shot with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I placed it in the center with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Randomly place some Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

IMG_0174

The inside I kept it simple I added little strips of Carried Away Designer Series Paper across the bottom and right side.

Retirement Party; Invite

Invite

Wow Peeps dh and I had one VERY busy crazy weekend. We made some awesome progress though! Hubby got the tile laid by my parents front door FINALLY....yeppers we still have stuff to finish at the parents place from our project this fall. Then we figured out my parents new kitchen layout. Parents need new kitchen cabinets BAD but we were going to wait till after the wedding....but mom's dish washer and stove started to not work, so new appliances had to be purchased....and of course the new appliances won't fit into the openings because it's an old modeler home and a LOT has changed since it was built. Just WOW right? Yes this is going to be squeezed into everything else we have going on. I CRUMBA It's exciting though and it will be awesome when it's done! What a weekend.

I mentioned the other day that my beautiful mama is retiring! She is starting another chapter of her life and we are all so excited for her! I personally am hoping this means more apple pie ;) hehe j/k mom. This is the invite I created for her special retirement party; all 60 of these babies. The invite uses the Bundle Birthday Fiesta Photopolymer Stamp Set & Fiesta Time Framelites item #142268 on pg. 11 in the Stampin' Up! Catalog. We are having one big Fiesta!!

Birthday Fiesta

I can't even begin to tell how awesome and fun this set is!! I was meh about it but WOW amazing things can be done with this beauty! Of course it has a lama in it, I honestly don't understand the craze over them to me there just like goats only a bigger version nothing special. lol I don't know maybe because I grew up on a farm. Please don't report me to the lama lovers. hehe When you purchase as a bundle you can save 10%!

IMG_3098

60 cactus and flowers die cut out thanks to hubby. He's the best I just stamped them! I ADORE that cactus!!

IMG_0716

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • I took the stamp from Birthday Fiesta Stamp Set; inked it in Tempting Turquoise and stamped around the edges of the Tempting Turquoise card stock.
  • On the left side I added a strip of Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper.
  • We printed out the wording onto Whisper White card stock. That was a little trick finding fonts and figuring out the spacing but hubby is a genius at this.

IMG_3096

  • After printing I cut them down. We printed so we could get 4 to a sheet of card stock.
  • I stamped the Fiesta in Melon Mambo onto the Whisper White card stock and then stamped the little flower on the right in Crushed Curry.
  • Then started the assembling process. I glued the Whisper White to the Tempting Turquoise card stock.
  • At the top is the one banner that was die cut out using the Big Shot and Fiesta Framelits in the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper. Next is the Crushed Curry banner. I die cut it out using the Big Shot and Fiesta Framelits, then I stamped onto the Crushed Curry card stock.
  • On the bottom left side I added the cactus and flower.

I love how it turned out and the colors are so festive! Perfect for this big celebration!

Family Gift's; New Year's Eve Jars

New Years Bundle

New Year's Eve has come and gone but I plan on showing all the stuff I made for our family gifts. This project is the New Year's Eve Gift Jar that we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made! If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE. This was one of my FAVORITES out of the Year Gifts, yes, we made a lot of AWESOME stuff but I thought these really rocked! This was also one of the projects that I didn't get made till December because of the candy that would go inside some. I used a lot of different stamp sets to create this project but the main stamp set used is Designer Tin of Cards Photopolymer Stamp Set item #141739 on pg 161 in our main catalog.

Designer Tin of Cards

This is one of those sets that I think everyone needs! It works for many occasions and is also perfect for your project life!!

The Break Down of Goodies in the Jar

Everyone's jars were different for several reasons. Not everyone got the midnight kisses, some don't do candy at all. A couple of the Jars didn't have balloons in them because of Latex Allergies. Some of the confetti stuff had to be different too because of allergies. I also made the jars different to suit people's favorite colors too! I personally hate the color Pink so bad. It literally gives me an instant headache and makes me want to vomit when I see it. I don't know why it's been like that since I was a kid, so I personally didn't want to give someone a color they hate. lol To me that is knowing someone and truly caring about them. So yeah, I really put a LOT of thought into this gift!

Noise Makers

IMG_9893

These were so AWESOME when they were done! I saw the idea on pinterest and knew I had to make them! I thought they would be perfect for the two little ones too. This project however didn't go well for us... hahaha, it was quite the project and story! First, I thought I had picked up the black paint, nope and of course this wasn't discovered till 8pm at night when we went to work on them. Strike 1! I picked up paint the next day, came home painted them and let them dry overnight just to be extra safe. However what pinterest didn't tell you is you definitely need bigger bells. With smaller bells, you can't slide the gift package ribbon through them at all. ROFL Another discover at 8pm at night and in this small town where in the world do you find this many bells at Christmas time no less (we made 13 of these and they each had 8 bells on them). ROFL Strike 2!  Off to town the next day yet again when I should really be home working on the gifts. lol Luckily for us I managed to find some and they had exactly just enough packages left (my angles working full time again). Home to work on them, but I noticed that the wrapping ribbon paint was coming off so they looked bad. Ughh Strike 3! Off to town again to find higher quality ribbon. They finally worked after having 4 days tied up into this project. lol We for some reason we also thought they would fit into the jars too and they didn't. It was pretty funny. The lesson don't wait to do this project in Dec try starting it in November. Haha

Supplies Needed
Wavy Wood Sticks
Black Craft Nontoxic Paint
3/4" to 1" bells
High quality present wrapping ribbon

To Create Them:

  • I picked up wood wave sticks from walmart you get like 24 in a package. Then paint with craft paint. If little ones are involved, you want to make sure you get a paint that is nontoxic if they happen to stick it in their mouth. lol All the sticks were painted black and left to dry overnight.
  • You want larger bells so they will slide easier over the ribbon at least 3/4". I used gift wrap ribbon and you want a high-quality ribbon so the color doesn't flake off.
  • Put all the bells on your ribbon first, you will want quite a bit of ribbon to work with. Tie one end of the ribbon to the wavy stick and then start wrapping around the wavy stick you'll want 4 bells on each side. Tie the other end to the stick when done wrapping.
  • Cut some more ribbon and tie to the wavy stick on the bottom and curl it.

Swizzle Sticks

Swizzle Sticks

These were awesome too! They do take some time and a lot of work because you know me I can't do simple. lol Each jar had 3 different designs of swizzle sticks.

Supplies Needed
Stamps: Designer Tin of Cards, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Thoughtful Banners, It's a Celebration, Sunburst Sayings
Ink:VersaMark, Memento Ink Tuxedo Black, Crushed Curry
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Silver Glimmer Paper
Tools: Big Shot, Star Framelits, Heat Tool, Medium Star Punch
Acc.: Gold and Silver Embossing Powder, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Rhinestones
Misc: Wood Stir Sticks, Gift Packaging Ribbon

To Create Them:

  • Punch out the Whisper White and Basic Black card stock with the Medium Star Punch. Attach the Basic Black stars to the stir sticks with Glue Dots or Dimensionals.
  • Stamp onto the Whisper White card stock using the following stamps Designer Tin of Cards, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Thoughtful Banners, It's a Celebration, Sunburst Sayings in the following inks Memento Tuxedo Black, Crushed Curry and VersaMark. Emboss the images you want with Silver and Gold Embossing Powder. Add Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the ones you want. I did each set design at once to make it easier and that way your ink doesn't dry before you pour embossing powder over your images. Attach the Whisper White star with a Glue Dot or Stampin' Dimensional.
  • Zip Silver Glitter Paper through the Big Shot with the Star Framelits and attach to the ones you want to have the glitter star. Attach with a Stampin' Dimensional. Add Basic Jewels Rhinestones in where you want.
  • Tie some gift wrap ribbon around the stir stick and curl.

Here is a close up of them. SWEET!!

New Year's Resolution Cards

New Years Resolution Cards

Super easy and fun to create! I printed out the resolution cards we designed onto Whisper White card stock. In the corners, I inked the stamp from Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set in Crushed Curry and stamped. Across the bottom, I added some Silver Glimmer Paper.

IMG_9937

Then tie some gift wrap ribbon around to keep them together.

 Download New Years Resolution Card for your next project. Simply print onto Whisper White card stock and trim the border off if you don't want the border. Enjoy!

Midnight Kisses

IMG_9910

Another idea I saw on Pinterest and absolutely loved!! Very easy to make and these also would be awesome for any event or occasion.
I purchased 3/4" Circle Labels from Target. Using the Project Life Date Stamp Set; I stamped 2017 in Memento Ink Tuxedo Black onto the labels. Then I using a Sponge Dauber I add Gold Metallic Ink onto the label. Then placed the labels onto the bottom of the Hershey kisses.

IMG_9927

It's hard to see but we used the Silhouette to cut out Happy New Year 2017 in White Vinyl. I then added it to the jar. The jar lids we painted in the black craft paint. Then filled the jars with filler I purchased at Hobby Lobby. We punched stars and etc. to place in the jars too. I added gift wrap ribbon and another bell onto the jar.

IMG_9918

Here are the 4 Jars all done. Each family received a New Year's Jar. Aren't these AWESOME!! Even with the crazy stuff that happened they turned out AMAZING!!! For us we made a pretty fun memory with LOTS of laughs.

IMG_9912

We also created this for one family as it was our nephew's 1st New Year! I picked up a frame from Walmart. Slide some Basic Black card stock into it. Using the Silhouette, we cut out My First New Year in white vinyl. I added a Gold Foil Star and a Silver Glitter Star in the bottom right corner to finish it.

Since we didn't do our family Christmas till December 31st. We were able to be watch my brother and wife to be open their New Year's Gift. Which was pretty awesome to be able to be part of it!
