|Lip Balm Folders w/ Avon Lip Balm|
|Night Before Christmas Scroll|
|Travel Tic Tac Toe game|
|inside game board|
The Lip Balm Folder is one another demonstrator shared. I copied the instructions for the folder itself, then decorated to my taste.
Have you ever read "Twas the Night Before Christmas" to you children on Christmas Eve? I know I did when my children were younger. It became our tradition after Christmas Eve Candlelight Service to come home and read this story. A couple of years ago, another demonstrator, Lynn Pratt, designed a Night Before Christmas 'SCROLL'. I liked the idea so much, that I made several and gave them to family members to read to their children. This year we welcomed another great-nephew into the family, so he'll probably get a scroll this Christmas. I have also made just a few to sell at the Scenic Drive. If I sell out, I'm willing to take orders for more. They are $10 each.
Tic Tac Toe remains one of my kids favorite games on paper when they are bored and don't have access to other activities. These games are even better than the paper version, since they produce no trash. The game pieces are also magnetic, so it is the perfect traveling game for the kids.
For the finer decorators, the tealight candles are some of my favorite. The flowers are cut from colored craft metal sheets, then embossed for an elegant look and layered on top of glass or mirrored candle plates. The tealight has a small band of colored metal glued on the side, so when the candle burns down, just insert a new candle. They slide in and out very easily. I will also take orders for these when I run out, but will have to order more metal sheets before they can be completed.
Again, I hope you get the chance to stop in and say hello one of the next two weekends in Knoxville.

I also make similar frames with individual first names (usually kids), or last names with wedding dates. I've also done family groups. These are $10 for simple inserts that measure 12 x 5. Prices vary for different sizes. Just give me a call if you are
Thanks for checking in!

These 'Need For Speed' coasters should be just the ticket for the man that likes his 'toys'. They are actually ceramic tiles that are decorated with chipboard to protect the table surface. Want to own a set? Look me up at the Knox County Scenic Drive in Knoxville the first 2 weekends in October.

This post is dedicated to my late niece, Angie, who lost her battle with cancer in April. I wanted to make this album and used Elegant Eggplant since I have an abundance of this paper right now. Well, purples are Angie's favorite colors, so I decided to make this little album for her sons. The first picture shows the front cover of the album. The picture below is what you see when you open the album. I created the dedication page using My Digital Studio, saved the page to my computer, then cropped the page to fit the album. One of her passions was Belly Dancing, so I figured it should be the first picture seen. Isn't she beautiful? I'll have this on display at my Open House this coming Friday from 2 to 7. The pictures really don't do the album justice.
|When you first open the album, this is what you'll see.|
|flaps opened on both sides.|
|Right side of album opened with final tribute.|
|Left side of album opened.|

You may be wondering why the catalog is ending so soon? Stampin' Up! has re-designed the catalogs and the timing to better suit the needs of customers, so this years' catalog is ending a month early. The new catalog begins tomorrow, June 1, 2012.
I'll be planning a new catalog Open House later in June, so watch for details.
