Chocolate Tins

Thought I would post a couple of these. SU designer paper was used to cover the nuggets and rub-ons were used on the lids. Wired ribbon was wrapped around the lid. SU DP was also wrapped around bottom of tin.

Sunflower Clipboard

Here is another clipboard I did. I really like making these. SU designer paper was used.

SU ribbon and fall stamp set. Rub-ons from Michaels.


This is a clipboard that I did recently. All of the paper & cs are from SU. The ribbon is SU and the felt snowflake. I also used a chipboard snowflake covered with DP and edged with SU chunky glitter. Rub-ons are from michaels and stickers are Jolees.

Test Tubes

I had a couple of people ask where to find these. I got them from Michaels, they were Martha Stewarts' brand and they are plastic so very safe for kids. Thanks to all for your interest.

How to for Re-inker Glass Ball

I had a few people ask how to do this.
It is very easy and lots of fun. Get glass ornament (Joannes or Michaels), pick out your re-inker colour and pour some into your ball. Roll around until all the inside of the ball is coated. I then drain for about a minute to get rid of any extra (on a paper towel). Pick a matching glitter and scoop or pour into ball then shake it until all inside is coated. You can then tap out extra (this can usually be put back in glitter container). Let it dry for an hour or so, then put hanger back in and decorate.
Have fun !!

Re-inker Glass Ball

I also did these for the craft fair. So thought I'd post one. This one is all SU except for the stickles on top. The SU rub-ons worked best on the balls, the ones from Michaels didn't want to stick so I made most of them using SU rub-ons. All were made using SU re-inkers. I did use glitter from both SU and others.

More Test Tubes

I am doing a craft fair next week so I made a heap of these, here are a couple. I just love making these they're so easy and look so darn cute.

I used SU Ribbon, Chunky Glitter on the corks, the rub-ons are from Michaels but you could use SU ones and the little dangle things (don't ya like the technical term) are from Wallymart. I also put stickles on the bottoms which took about 48 hrs to dry.

SU paper pinecone

I love blue at christmas. The new ski slope paper is beautiful. I really like how this came out.

I used Ski Slope Paper, Foam Ball, SU Felt Snowflakes, Gem Brad, SU ribbon and some from Michaels and pins to hold it all together.
I found the tutorial at SCS but not sure where.
