Home made Stencils

Home Made Stencils

This is my AHA moment...... home made stencils. This is a nice idea to make for yourself or even as gift for a friend, this one I made is for my sister. I used transparent layout 8 1/2" by 11" sheet and cut them into squares just bigger then the hole punches.I've cut the transparency overlay into 3 1/4" by 4 1/4" and the smaller ones into 2 1/16" by 2 3/4". Each One has been made larger to protect your projects from being covered in ink. Also made a quick folder and reference book to go along with the stencils. The reference book has the measurement's and pictures for a reminder of what stencils are in the folder. I've also included the plastic punch outs for embossing or tracing around. This is a great versatile tool that could be used for so many projects.

The pictures are a bit hard to see the stencils hence the black paper to hopeful
show up enough to make out what they are.
Thanks for peeking.

Recipe Cards "Sugar Cookies"

Sugar Cookie Recipe 6x6 card
This is the first recipe card (and My first real Post seemed perfect) I ever made for a swap that was going on over a year ago in the town I live in and had so much fun making it too!
This recipe card is made from a 6x6 off-white card stock and Christmas sugar cookie paper cut abit smaller and mounted on for the background. As soon as I saw this paper I knew it was just so perfect for this recipe too.I've distressed the edges with a brown ink. I just love the way inking the edges gives it and just me but I love to distress everything. I've used the computer for the title and recipe card it self (Fonts Kringle & Lucida Handwriting).

To Make the Cookies : Need 2 different sheets of card stock (Brown for cookie and White/Beige for icing) cut out 2 old shaped circles. First ink the around the cookie to give it a bit of a darker affect to looked just baked. With the icing crinkled it up then flatten out and glue it down. Use small red and green beads to make the sprinkles. This seems to be a recipe I make every Christmas for my family and friends. My girls favorite part in helping me out is with the decorating......I also hide some extra candy to make sure there is always enough.... one for me and one for the cookie.....LOL.
Thanks for taking a look.

Halloween Pumpkin Boxes

Hall-o-ween Pumpkin Boxes

My family is always saying to me we never have enough Halloween decoration so in October of 2008, I made these cute and charming stack able pumpkins. This idea came from a magazine I saw years ago and decided finally to make them.

Materials used:
*3 different sized boxes from large to medium to small
* Bo Bunny orange paper tow sided
* deep orange bazzil textured card stock
* black and white gel pen
* scrap brown
* green textured card stock

I measured, cut and inked the paper to fit on each side and inked the edges of each box with the same colour as the paper. This is so it wasn't as noticeable to see it was just a plain box underneath. Color the face in before glueing it in place. I used the template from the magazine for their faces. I used my sizzix green leaf die and cut out as many as I wanted to layer between and 3 for the top as the box was small. I curled and bent the leafs before gluing to give it more shape to them.Used a scrap piece of brown and rolled it up to make a stem for the top of the last pumpkin then glued it in place. I can't remember which magazine if anyone knows post it below I think my hubby wanted something a little more scary then this for Halloween ........ lol...... he is just a big kid at heart.

Thanks for peeking. Anne :)
