Tea Time....

Welcome back.
I found this wonderful blog.......The Shabby Tearoom, a few days ago and I am loving it.
I discovered they are having a Design Call and you have to create a card or project based on this inspiration piece.
As soon as I saw the Teapot, I knew what I wanted to make.
I had this template I had bought from Lauren .......Here
I have many of her temaplates and never used them.
I was first intimidated by the pieces and wondering how I was gonna get it to work around the curves.
I was so surprised how easy it was to go together.
I know what I wll be doing later,digging out the rest of my templates from
I then went thru my papers to find something and I found this paper, I believe its Foo fa la,not sure as there was no name on it.

I started by printing off the template for the Teapot onto cream Cs.
The handle and spout on red Cs.
I don't have a cutting machine , so I cut everything by hand.
I then printed the panels on the pattern paper, cut and layered , after having the pot all together.
The teapot is holding 6 cookies.
I then made the teabag holder.
I so wanted to try my hand at a Teacup card, but time didn't let me as I wanted to get this done in time for the design call, so settled for making a fairly simple card using the cup as its focal point.I just used up scraps of the paper setting on my desk.
I then did some punching using a SU punch and a small EK success punch to create my flowers, used some nesties for my labels.
Wish me luck with the design call.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day.

Hi and welcome back to another MoJo Monday.
Todays sketch was so fun to do.
I used it for a fathers day card for my hubby.
Dh is my biggest fan and loves what ever I make, but I kept his card
pretty simple.

I made another billfold to go along with this card.
Its great for giving gift cards, since Dh loves his Timmy's,
I plan on putting in a Tim card.
I used up more of the heidi swapp paper I still had out on my desk.
Thanks for visiting.

I do , Ido , I do ...

Hi and welcome to another Stamptacular Sunday.
Todays challenge .....To make a Wedding or Anniversary Themed Project.
To create a card or project that is Wedding or Anniversary related.
I have a couple of weddings coming up this summer amd I went
with this project to go with the card I made several weeks ago.
My card can be found >>>>>Here.
I saw this shoe done on Becca's Blog awhile back and wanted to try one.
My shoe doesn't look as nice as hers,but I was pleased with it,lol.
The tut for the shoe can be found here........Elegant Shoe Tut
I had wanted to make a gift card thingy to go into the shoe, but everything was to big, so I went with a Tag to fit inside the shoe and then made a gift card holder to hold a gift card.
The couple that is getting married has been together for 14 yrs and what do you get for someone who has everything already.So I figured I give them a gift card and they can get whatever they want.
The box I made for the gift card can also be found on Becca's blog here>>>>>>>Tag Box
I made it a bit smaller to hold a gift card.

The sponsor for this week is .......There She Goes Clear Stamps
A coupon worth $24.

wonderful creations.
