The June issue of Creating Keepsakes features a die-cut favor box made with the new Stampin' Up! Fancy Favor Bigz XL die from the upcoming 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog.
NOTE: This product is not yet available. However, I thought you might enjoy an advance sneak peek. This amazing product along with many more new Stampin' Up! products will be available for purchase on July 1, 2009, when the new Idea Book & Catalog is released.
So, I've started yet another new craft! LOL You would not believe how my felt I have. I make tooth fairy pillows, felt food, and ornaments out of felt, but I wanted to start making something else, so I decided to start making finger puppets. I posted them on my Etsy site to see how they do. I also thought that they would be perfect in September when I'm teaching for the children to use. Samantha tried them out last night and had a blast putting on a "show" for Nan and I! =)
Here's a layout that I did of Sami and "Aunt Peggy". She is not really our aunt, but Sami has always called her Aunt Peggy. LOL Last summer we were visiting and mowed the lawn while we were there. Sami and Peggy were not impressed by all the grass that was on the lawn afterwards so they both grabbed a broom and began sweeping. LOL
This is a card that I made for a boy's b-day that Sami is going to tomorrow. It is using the stamp set and wheel from the Occasions Mini Catalogue currently running with Stampin' Up. I used the Cricut to made the number 3. The colors are not quite as bright as the picture is making it seem.
With Mother's Day coming up on Sunday, there is always the issue of what to get MIL from Sami. MIL is not a knick knack person and has everything under the sun. I decided to make a wallet album for her. It has three pictures of Sami in it. I got Sami to write "To Nana" and "Love Sami" in it. I hope MIL likes it. What do you think?
I have made a few soother clips as gifts for people, but have decided to start making them to sell. If you are interested in purchasing them, you can check out my Etsy site. They are $5 each. Here are the ones that I made today:
