The Rubber Room is a Mess!!

The Rubber room has seen some action lately!
Unfortunately, the cleaning lady (that'd be me, lol) has been on break.....
I REALLY wanted to stamp today, but first I had to find a surface! So, I got down to business and by the time it took to throw 2 loads of laundry in, I found my counter and table top!
UGH.... (no need to say more)

AAAAHHHHH.... (no need to say more!)

I'll be back later with some proof that I actually did stamp to make that mess. For now, please excuse me while I go mess it up again, lol!

Stampy Wackers Stampin Up! Demo's Meeting - Group Make & Takes

And here is a quick picture of the group make & take projects that we did at the Stampy Wackers Demo Meeting. Aren't they the cutest! I LOVE the bermuda bay and melon mambo colors together and I really like the easy slit punch treatment that this card has. Perhaps I'll do a short tutorial on how to achieve that look. It's something that I have seen around and hadn't yet tried, so I was excited to have a chance to do it (with supervision of course, lol!) The giraffe I just assembled here at home as I didn't have a chance to finish at the meeting, but it was simple to do. The "dots" are actually punched out of the summer sun layer and then placed on top of a choc chip piece... easy peasy! Thanks for stopping in!

Jones School Fall Fun Fair Fundraiser Event

Tonight I am doing a fund raising event at a local school. I was asked to provide some quick make & take projects for adults and kids to complete. This is what I came up with. The adults will be making the triangle treat box with the ornament punch tag. The kids will be offered the bookmark in a variety of colors with either the boy or the girl Build a Bear stamp. I think my station will be next to the build your own teddy bear station, which is why I selected the BAB stamp set.

Below are just some of the samples that I will be taking with me to show what can be made with some paper, stamps and punches! It should be noted that many of these are not my original design, but rather found on blogs and sites featuring papercrafts. How fun are they!

If you attended the fair and are here, thanks for stopping by my booth, please feel free to contact me for any of your stampin' needs!

Stampy Wackers Stampin Up! Demo's Meeting

So this past weekend, I was invited to a demo group meeting. I am an orphaned demo, so I've never had the privilege to attend a demo only meeting... boy I've been missing out! What a great group of ladies that I got to met and stamp the day away with! Thanks for the invite Gayla, and thanks to the head stampy wacker for opening the mtg to us orphans! We were asked to either do a short demo or bring an item for the door prize table. This is the prize that I brought. I've had this white melamine bowl on my counter for a while waiting for a purpose. I cut some letters using the simple letters die out of chocolate vinyl and put them on the front of the bowl. Inside the bowl is a 2-4-6-8 box with a window sheet and a bottle of hand sanitizer with some rub on's. The filler is some of that brown paper that comes with each order. I just shredded it up! The recipient sought me out to thank me and it was one of the first 5 or so gifts chosen! I hope to get some more pictures posted tomorrow of some of the great card front swaps I received!

a quick birthday card

yes I know that baseball season is over here in Central New York (well, not for my boys, they are doing indoor workouts for next year, ugh!). They were invited to a birthday party and I had 1 hour notice to prepare a card! Talk about performing under pressure, lol. I decided on the baseball theme as it's an easy, peasy card with no coloring! I cut a circle with my circle scissors plus. I love that thing now that I have a spray adhesive covered glass cutting mat! Cut a bigger circle from the certainly celery mat and placed the works onto the black piece. I did the letters in the birthday boys' name quick, quick by using my simple serif die and adhered them with tombow mono multi. The tag was made using the sporting set and tag punches. Thanks for stopping by!

Gift Card Holders with Rub On's

More Craft Show goodies! These are gift card holders made by using the pre cut and scored gift cards from last year's catty. I prettied 'em up with rub on's, ribbon and some dp. I think they

came out cute and whatever doesn't sell, can be used by me for gifts!
Sorry I haven't been posting a ton of new stuff lately, I've been sooooo busy with the kids, work and my gram that I haven't had much time to stamp. I'll try to post more when I can!

It's World Card Making Day!

Happy World Card Making Day everyone! I'm sorry that I couldn't plan an event this year - I really wanted to, but my boys have me too busy with their overlapping sports right now. Hopefully by the end of this month, I'll put together an event and have everyone over for a little rubber room stampin'!

Enjoy your events today! Here is a little inspiration for you.... (they are covered gum sliders)
