Glass Block

I finally decided what to put on this block. I have stamped out different images, and then I remember this old retired SU set. This is really a fun project.
I purchased the blocks (I had to buy a case)

Get the hole drilled. I am proud to say that I drilled my own holes ~ Rinse the inside and
outside of block to make sure it is clean ~ Cut a 6-1/2" x 6-1/2" pc. of mulberry paper. I did try the tissue paper, but I like the thinkness of the mulberry paper (not cardstock) ~ Stamp your image with StazOn ~ Color in image, I used Watercolor pencils and SU pastels ~ Brush on modgepodge in the 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 surface and then place your paper directly onto the glass~ Spray with a sealant ~Install your lights ~Tie a ribbon around and hot glue it in place

Viola' You are done!

Trivets make a Great Gift

I had a little time the other nght and I decided to attempt these tiles. I decided to give them as gifts or sell them on my Etsy account. Still haven't decided. I looked at this tile and wondered what would look the best. Well, you use a trivet in the kitchen and on your table so I pulled out the Viola set and the rest is history. I also used the Medallion stamp, but I didn't use the right color because it looks like it ran, but you just can't see the detail because of the color of the tile. Sorry for the glare.
I purchased 6x6 travertine tiles for this project

Notebox of Goodies!

I tried to make a tote out of paper, but I was not happy with it at all. I found a chipboard box, covered it in DSP and made cards, mini notebook and pen, post-it-note holder and a bookmark.
I think it came out really nice and makes a great gift for someone special.

Stamp Set: Fresh Cuts, Razzle Dazzle
Paper: Cottage Wall, Rich Razzleberry, Certainly Celery, Mambo Melon
Accessories: Post-it-Notes, Mini Gel Pens, Scallop Punch, 1-1/4 circle punch, Brads and Twine


Joy Coaster Banner

Hi Everyone! I love making projects with coasters. This banner was made using the rectangular coasters. I have had this paper for a while waiting to use it. The letters I got at Michael's. I made a "NOEL" Banner last year, so I figured I would do something different this year. I hope you like it. It was real simple to make.
