Terrific Tuesday Video for September 5, 2017

Hi everyone and welcome to another Terrific Tuesday Video!

Today I am going to share two projects with you.  One project is an AMAZING kit that Stampin' Up! is offering in the annual catalog.  A special thanks to Ann Hill for allowing me to use her planner for my video.  

The second project is the Christmas card that I made for my husbands business.  He is an electrician and owns his own business, so the stampset called "Wishes all Aglow" was fitting for his holiday card.    

Here are pictures of the projects I will be showcasing today.  




This week's card focuses on the Wishes all Aglow stampset which is a MUST HAVE in my house. 
Before I get started I would like to share a picture of my girls with you.  Today was the first day of school,  It's so hard to believe I have an 8th grader and a 5th grader already.  

It was so sweet this morning.  The girls leave at different times as their schools start about an hour apart. I drive Natalie to school and Claire rides the bus.  I think they bonded some this summer as they gave each other a hug and wished each other a good day as Natalie and I wereleaving.  It totally melted my heart.  I Just love my girls!



First I will share with some some details regarding the Planner kit.  It is called Love Today and is an awesome kit for teenagers, college students and busy moms.  The kit sells for $37.00 and the awesome part about it is that you can purchase a refill kit for $27.00 so you can get a couple of years use out of it!  

I will be purchasing this kit for a couple of my nieces and a couple of co-workers for Christmas.  It's never too early to start that Christmas shopping.  Make sure you check out my video for a walk through on this awesome kit. 






The second project that I am showcasing is this AWESOME holiday card.  I have lots of these to make so I had to keep it quite simple, yet nice.  I think I accomplished that.

Terrific Tuesday Video for August 22nd - Decorating Candles for Home Decor/Gifts

Hi everyone and welcome to another Terrific Tuesday Video!

Today I am going to share with you a gift that I made to give all my attendees coming to my 12 hour scrapbook retreat scheduled for this weekend. I LOVE how they turned out!  

Here is a picture of the project I will be showcasing today.  I love how these candles turned out.  



Before I get started I want to take a moment wish my mom a very happy birthday!  She is an amazing lady and definitely special to all of us!  Here is a picture of her with all of my extended family including my brother, my sister and her family, and all of us.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM - WE LOVE YOU!



This week's project focuses on the Painted Harvest stampset that is available in the upcoming holiday catalog. This set has home decor written all over it.  I am having so much fun experimenting with different color combinations with the two step flower from this set.  

In this picture I showcase crushed curry and tangerine tango ink (candle on the left), and crushed curry and cajun craze (candle on the right).  For the green leaves I used pear pizzazz and old olive ink.  



You will need some white tissue paper for this technique so make sure you have some on hand before you watch the video so you can make your own candles.  

Here is a picture of the stampset, painted harvest.  Make sure you add this to your wish list and order it right away on September 1st!  I used the larger image for the crushed curry on both my samples, and the smaller image is what I used for stamping the tangerine tango and the cajun craze.
