And this is a photo cube that folds down for storage or mailing. This one is matted for 2" square photos. There is room for 5 pictures, or 4 pictures and a greeting. I suppose you could put one on the bottom too if you wanted, but we won't be at club.

Happy Shopping! And remind those hubbies out there that Stampin Up! stuff makes the best gifts!
Here it is with a packet of tea and a couple of wallet sized pics of my daughter in her Junior ROTC uniform from a couple years ago. Yes, my totally hippie daughter was once in Junior ROTC and actually considered joining the military. :) I did a video tutorial for the Cocoa card here.
Stamps: A Cardinal Christmas
Paper: cream colored 3-5/8"x6-1/2" envelope, Very Vanilla, Kiwi Kiss
Ink: Basic Brown, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive and Ruby Red with Aquapainter, Real Red and Pumpkin Pie markers
Accessories: Riding Hood Red ribbon, Aquapainter, paper crimper, stapler.
First cut your envelope into 2 pieces, one 3" long and the other 3-1/2" inches long. The longer piece will fit into the shorter piece.
For the card "front" (the shorter piece)I watercolored the image with Ruby Red classic ink, and then on this one I used the Old Olive and Real Red markers to color the branches and berries. I did a different one watercoloring the branches with Old Olive and I liked that effect better. I highlighted the berries with a dot of white gel pen. Inked the edges of the image pieces with Basic Brown. Adhered the ribbon all the way around with Tape Runner, then adhered image to card.
Now, I stamped the branch shadow image in Kiwi Kiss repeatedly on front and back of the longer piece. Run piece trough paper crimper. Take an approx. 2" long piece of ribbon, fold in half over closed end of piece, and staple it on.

And the Thanksgiving layout. These pictures are from 4 years ago, can you believe it!
Saturday, November 1, 2008
Each card kit will be enough supplies for 3 each of these 5 designs and will cost $25. I will have everything at the class for stamping and embellishing your cards. Sounds fun doesn't it!
These are the cards we will be making, except for the pink angel I guess. I have been told that pink is not very Christmassy and since these are for others to make and give away, I should really listen to that advise huh, lol!
So we will make this blue angel instead. You can't really tell in these pics, but there is glitter on the angel's wings, on the snowflakes on the snowman card, and on the house, dove, and snowflake on the "balls" card as Mary calls it, lol! We will be able to add some colored glitter to the the Swirled tree also, if you would like.
Come join me for a very productive and fun Saturday afternoon. Tell me what you think and leave a comment!

This is one of the Layouts I did this weekend. I wish I had thought to take some pictures of everyone else's stuff, that would have been fun to see!
One our friends is also the one who cut the kids hair that time, say cheese Audrey!
OK, I have to admit to one of my weak spots as a mom. I am bad at getting my kids haircuts frequently enough, about 3-4 times a year is my usual. So, they all look pretty shaggy and the beginning of the school year is one of our haircut seasons! This is in Sept 07, and Geoffrey says good-bye to his tail :(

You will need:
Scallop Circle Punch
Standard hole punch
Paper: Blush Blossom, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White
Trim 3 scallops off of one White circle
Trim 5 scallops off the remaining white circle and the red circle
Glue mustache on front of Santa just above the front white piece as shown.
Glue the 9 scallop red piece on the back of the Santa with its first scallop behind the 2nd red scallop on the front so part of it extends past the face, forming the hat.
Add the standard hole punches as the eyes and nose, then use marker to add the eyeballs. All done!
We'll start with the one I put together while talking to Heather, but actually planned while driving home from Walmart that morning when the weather was so gorgeous! I just got the Watercolor Wonder Crayons, and I am in love! I love how rich the color is with these things!

Ok, Heather had made a comment to me about how someone else had made some simple, yet beautiful cards, with patterned paper. It made me realize that I don't use it much in our projects and I thought I would try to incorporate some in each project we do this month. Don't expect it to become a habit though, LOL!
This is the Halloween page we will be doing, aren't these papers fun! I used the new Ghostly Greetings paper that I just got about a week ago.

Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Ghostly Greetings DP

This is a close up of one of the versions of a scrapbook page we will be doing. I was ind of thinking of a "First Day of School" kind of page, but it could be used for all kinds of things. I wanted a boy and a girl feel available also. No scallops or flowers for the boys, :)
This is the girl version, so cute! The patterned paper is 2 sided, so everyone gets both prints at once!

I got to thinking about how I could do this with the empty syringe holders that we throw away at work. So this is my fisrt attempt at it. I think I must have scored something a little crooked but I still think it turned out cute!
I also got to use some the new halloween paper from SU called Ghostly Greetings, lots of great print is that pack. I will forever regret not getting last year's Halloween paper that had purple in it too.
I got the directions from Lisa's blog . There is a link to an instruction sheet there. I modified it a bit because the 3ml syringe cases are shorter than the test tubes :)
So the dimensions of the back piece are 7x3, scoring at 1 1/4" on 2 short sides and 1 long side.
For the front piece it is 7x 4 3/4. Score sides at 1 1/4". then from bottom score at 1 1/4, 3, and 4 3/4.
I also used a 3/4" circle punch for the holder holes because 1" was too big.
Here is a close up of the tube with M&M's in it, and the top of another tube leaning on top it. Cute huh!? Let me know what you think. Does the thought of using a syringe case freak you out? Or is it a neat new way to recycle?

Make sure your acetate edges are evenly just below the score lines so that your top will be on straight.
I then laid the box on it's side and used my bone folder to rub the acetate and cardstock together until the glue held well.
Now, find the side that you want to be your front of the box. Trim about 1/8" off the front flap with paper trimmer.
Turn this side to be facing you.Fold right side flap in.
Fold back flap down.
Fold left side flap in.
Fold front flap down. Now, note which edge of the left flap corresponds with the back edge of the front flap.
Then use slip punch centered on that edge.
Now the top flap will tuck into the slit and hold the top closed!
