Mini Milk Cartons For Halloween

Project #3 from last Saturday's Stamp Camp...


 These were made with the Mini Milk Carton Die and the Got Treats stamp set. After I made my sample, I got to thinking that there has to be a better way than stamping and then trimming to get the layers to fit on the milk carton. Duh- the tag punches work perfectly! So imagine that I had used them both, as everyone at the Stamp Camp did. Colors used are Concord Crush, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive.


Here's another milk carton I did using a piece of last year's Halloween Designer Series Paper to wrap around it. Then I used the "To Open" stamps on the top, just like a real milk carton! I left my thumb in the picture so you can get an idea of the size of the milk cartons. They are just larger than 1 1/2" square and 3 1/4" tall.


And I made a little caddy that holds 4 of the milk cartons. Sorry this is last year's Halloween DSP, but I didn't use much of it and didn't want to buy this year's and not use much of it either! I don't usually do much for Halloween.

Composition Notebook Ready For Fall!

Project #2 from last Saturday's Stamp Camp- a composition notebook


We stamped 3 leaves from French Foliage (Holiday Mini Catalog) with Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, and More Mustard, and stamped the French words with Crumb Cake on Very Vanilla cardstock. Then we sprayed the cardstock with Smooch Spritz in either Gold Glow or Vanilla Shimmer to add some sparkle. After that had time to dry, everyone picked a definition from Define Your Life, which was then punched with the Wide Oval punch and layered on the new Decorative Label punch (Holiday Mini).

Ornament Fish? Yes, FISH!

Sorry I haven't posted for awhile- I've had a nasty sinus infection and haven't stamped much. But last Saturday was the September Stamp-A-Stack that turned into a Stamp Camp! More involved projects that took a little longer to complete, so we did just 1 of everything. This 1st card wasn't very hard, but it was requested at the last Stamp-A-Stack...

Here's another use for the Ornament punch- FISH! That's right- 3 totally different images from 1 punch! Use it as it was intended for an ornament, upside down and trim off the point to become a vase (which we did at last month's Stamp-A-Stack), and now sideways as cute little fish!

This card was done in Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz- both are this year's In Colors. The weeds are from Inspired By Nature. The tails, fins, and eyelids are from the 5 Petal Punch- 1 for each fish.

Come back tomorrow to see another project...

After the Walk...

Sydne & Vonnie on the couch

Yesterday we (John, Sydne, & I) walked in the Heel & Wheel for Can Do Canines. It was a 1.4 mile walk at Clifton French Park in Plymouth, MN. I didn't catch the exact total (it was more than last year's $45,000), but they said it was the 2nd largest in the 17 years they have been doing the Heel & Wheel! There were 173 registered walkers, but way more people than that. And lots of dogs of all breeds! There was music from a local bluegrass band and games for the dogs before the walk, including bobbing for hotdogs! Sydne drank some of the water, then sniffed at the hot dog chunks floating in the water, like "what are these little things that smell so good?" She tried to get one in her mouth but it slipped out, so on the 2nd try she pushed one up against the edge of the bucket and got it! I think she checked every water container for hot dogs after that! After the walk everyone headed back to the pavillion to get something to eat and drink. Sydne had a few chunks of my bagel, a bite of my banana, and shared John's apple. She also had lots of doggie treats throughout the day! I think she was exhausted by the time we were done! She flaked out on the couch when we got home and took a nap with Vonnie. We decided not to bring Vonnie with us- she just turned 14 last Thursday, is almost deaf, and her sight isn't what it used to be. I don't think she would have enjoyed it.

A big THANK YOU to everyone who donated money and helped us with the walk!
We raised $535! Woohoo!
