SU124 Merry

To make the poinsetta, I stamped the image once with Red Rose ink then gave the stamp a half turn and stamped again without re-inking. I used the Double Rectangle punch to make the slot for the ribbon. Because I only needed one slot, I glued the punched out piece back over the hole.

Cardstock - White, Always Artichoke, Rose Red.

Inks - Always Artichoke, Rose Red, So Saffron.

Accessories - Whimsy Jumbo wheel, Ribbon, Double Rectangle punch, Sponge Dauber, Swiss Dots CB folder.

Stamp Sets - Paint Prints, Word by Word. Both are reitired.

My computer is GONE!

I have kinda come to a halt here! We left home on Nov 24, 2009 for a bit of a road trip. We had no particular plans to be anywhere except to see Wayne's Aunt and a few other relations in BC, Canada. I also hoped to meet a few stamping friends off the internet along the way too, however, my computer would not Send my messages. So unless they were on Facebook, I had no way of getting hold of them. I did meet a few and I am sure happy about that!

Anyways, we left Shelby MT at 7am on December 2nd for home. We made a few stops here and there and arrived home 15.5 hours later. My laptop was not in our vehicle! A cloth bag with some personal stuff in it, is missing too. I phoned back to the hotel in Shelby but no computer or cloth bag was turned in!

Since we are from the sticks, we are very poor at locking our vehicle. Heck, the keys are left in our vehicles in our yard! So it is quite an effort for us to remember to lock our vehicle! I'm pretty sure we will remember from now on!

So, as soon as I 'get a grip', I will be back. I feel like I am in mourning, it is such a horrible loss! Everything that was just a click away is GONE!

SU185 Padfolio

These instructions were given to us by Marian back in 2001 but I do not have her last name marked anywhere. If you are out there Marian, please let me know and I will add your last name. We are leaving for Salmon Arm, BC on Nov 25th (this post is delayed until December 2, 2009). I'm hoping to meet a few stampers along the way. I have made up a few of these to give as gifties to the friends that I have never met except via the internet. I hope they enjoy them.

Place a sheet of 81/2" x 11" cardstock in front of you with the 81/2" on the right and left for the directions.

From the left side, mark a score line at 5/8", 7/8" and 6". From the top right corner, mark down to 31/2" and up to the 6" score line. Cut this away. You can cut this on a curve or straight, whatever you want. Score at ½" at the bottom, right across the 11". Cut away the ½" up to the 6" score line only.

Fold all the score lines to the inside or wrong side. I splattered the front with navy acrylic ink. When dry, glue the 5/8" lip on to the back of a 5" x 8" writing tablet. Fold the last piece to the inside to form a pocket for important papers. Glue the bottom 1/2" to the pocket.
For some reason, the next photo did not listen to me when I asked it to rotate so you have to look at it sideways! I've added a 'business card' holder using photo corners and you can see I have a card tucked in the pocket.

Now you are ready to stamp and decorate the front. I used:

Stamp Sets - Inspired by Nature, Riveting.

Cardstock - White, Night of Navy, Old Olive.

Inks - Night of Navy, Old Olive, Navy acrylic for splattering.

Accessories - 11/4" circle punch, 13/8" circle punch, ticket punch, silver brad, sponge, mount, toothbrush to splatter.
The last photo is the back of the padfolio. You can see that the 5/8" lip is all that gets glued to the writing tablet.
