Right at Home for the Holidays Ebook Inspired Projects!!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a fun company called Right at Home!!  The owner Nicole is awesome!!  In July 2015, she launched her first stamp set, called Happy Mail.

Today, Nicole is launching her first ever E-Book called:

Right at Home for the Holidays”

home-for-the-holidays-ebook-post

Its a totally awesome E-Book!!  E-Book what does that mean?  An E-Book is a digital book that you purchase and its sent to you via email.  A physical version is not sent. You save the file to your computer and print it as many times as you need or you simple read it from your computer!!

Now what is in this E-Book, you ask?  Nicole put together 6 different project ideas with a supply list and instructions on how to create each project!!  This takes all of the guess work out of creating projects this holiday season.  You can create them as you see them in the book or you can put your own spin on them.  Its all up to you!!

Now take a look at one of the tags I re-created with the supplies I had on hand:

Sending Warm Wishes

I created the holiday tag on page 4 of the E-Book. I went with the dies and paper I had in my supply stash!  The hardest part to creating this tag was picking out the colors and papers to us.

The instructions were clear and to the point.

So what do you think of Nicole’s E-book?  Do you need more inspiration? We’ve got you covered.  Check out my fellow crafting friends blog for more inspiration:

Top Dog Die – DIY Kids Book

Hello eveyone!!!  It’s Top Dog Dies Wednesday!!!

Today I’m working with the Top Dog Dies Pocket Page Banner Die Set and the Top Dog Dies Vintage Alphabet Die.  I’m back again with another DIY Book, this time for my niece!!

Take a look:

TDD Book

My niece is learning her sight words, so I thought this little book would help her out.  Its small enough for her to carry and its super pretty for her to show it off to her friends, LOL!!

Lets take a look at my desktop after I cut out all of my letters:

TDD

My daughter loved die cutting these letter out using my Big Shot.  She thinks that machine is super cool!!

Lets take a look inside:

TDD Book 4

TDD book 1

I included a lot of common words that she should know.

Lets look at how many pages are inside:

TDD Book 3

TDD Book 2

I wanted the book to be super CAS (clean and simple) since I want her to focus on the words and not the design.

How I created this mini book:

  1. I used the Top Dog Die Pocket Page Banner die and die cut out 15 pages out of my cardstock.
  2.  Then I used the Top Dog Die Vintage Alphabet Die to cut out 5 pages of letters so that I had enough to make a couple words with the same letters.
  3. After that I used my We R Memory Keepers Cinch to punch the holes in the pages and bind them.
  4. Once the mini book was bound, I added the words to the pages using my Xyron Create a Sticker Tool.
  5. To finish off the book, I added ribbon to the spine for a little girly flavor!!

My nieces is going to love it!!

So what do you think?  Please let me know below!!

Top Dog Die – DIY Notebook

Hello everyone!!!  It’s Top Dog Dies Wednesday!!

Today I’m working with the Top Dog Dies Pretty Petals #3 Die Set!! I love this set!  You can use it on just about anything you create.  This die set is my go to set for dies!

Take a look at my project:Notebook 3 (TDD)

I created this notebook for my daughters teacher!!  My daughter and I are having a rough time this year because of the common core.  The way they teach math is unbelievable hard.  It makes no sense to me and teaching my daughter the way I learned it may not going to help her on test day.  So its been a struggle for both of us.

I talk to her teacher almost everyday so that I can stay on top of what she is learning and I wonder if she is tired of me, LOL!

I decided to create this notebook to show her that I truly appreciate her time, patience and her helpfulness as it pertains to my daughter.  I’ve said it before teachers really need all of our support because they have a tough job.

Creating this notebook was super easy!  I used my We R Memory Keepers Cinch and We R Memory Keepers Journal Kit!!

Notebook 5 (TDD)

Notebook 6 (TDD)

I decided that I loved how the chipboard looked just as it was.  I simply stamped my sentiment from Stampin’ Up! For Being You Stamp set (it was a sale-a-bration item) with My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

Then I used my Faber-Castell Polychromous Colored Pencils #140 and #125 to color my image in. The coloring is so beautiful to me.

Then I die cut my petals attached them to the front of the book, drew in a stem that attached to the sentiment.

Notebook 2 (TDD)

I added wink of stella to the letter and rhinestones to the petals.  I added the tabs to the pages to finish it off.

I love how this notebook turned out.

Notebook 4 (TDD)

What do you think?  Will my daughter’s teacher love this book?

I’m also entering this project into Jennifer McGuire Share Handmade Kindness Challenge.  We are on Week 2: Community

CASology 172 – Give

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card is:

Week 172 - Give

Take a look at my card:

Congratulations (CAS)

I went with a very classic card today for our cue card!  People give gifts all the time so I figure I could demonstrate that.

To create this card was very simple:

  1. I used Create A Smile Wrap it Up stamp set and stamped my image and sentiment using my Misti and My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.
  2. Then I colored my presents in using Copic markers: r37, R39, R89, Y38, YR68, YG03, YG25, YG17, Y02, Y15, Y19, B12, B14, B37, V15, V06, and V09.
  3. Then I trimmed my card panel down and adhered it to my card base.

Nice and easy!!  What do you think? Please let me know below.

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
