Welcome Home Birdhouse Candy Holder

This little birdie gets a warm welcome home greeting
every time he returns after a long day of
hunting and gathering for his family.

The Milk Carton Big Shot Die from Stampin' Up! is
the perfect size for making a little birdhouse
candy holder.  One side of the roof is held
shut with a little bit of Sticky Strip tape, but
when used with the Core'dinations card stock,
it becomes repositionable, yet strong enough
to stay closed.

Bloomin' Bouquet

Don't you just love fresh-cut flowers?  Are you
sad when they wither up and you have to
throw them out?  Well, these paper
flowers never die are sure to keep a
smile on your face!
This sweet arrangement is made using 
Stampin' Up!'s Bloomin' Bouquet kit.  
The kit comes with laser cut flowers,
enough for a baker's dozen, and has
floral stems, buttons for the flower centers,
 and labels as well.  All you need is
a cute flower basket or vase to display them in.

Here's a little closer view so you can see
the Faceted Vintage Button centers (included).

Better hurry and get your kit because
they're only available for a limited time
and while supplies last.
Get your kit HERE.  This link
even has a step-by-step video tutorial.

New Catalog Blog Hop - Epic Day Hexagon Card

Welcome to the Blog Hop! I hope you've just come 
from Cali's blog after checking out her project made
from new products from the Stampin' Up! 2013-2014
annual catalog.  You can see the catalog here.
Here's my contribution for the Blog Hop:
Did you notice the little buttons I made at the bottom?
Yes, you read that right, I MADE them!  And so can you!
A few of the many new, cool things in this year's
catalog are the Simply Pressed Clay Molds and Simply
Pressed Clay.  There are two molds, one that has
three sizes of buttons and one that has three
sizes of flowers.  It's super fun to make these!

Here are a few more samples of the finished flowers
and buttons:
The clay is a white color, and you can
add a few drops of re-inker to color the clay before
you place it in the mold (like the one with the white
arrow pointing to it), or you can color the finished
button or flower with Stampin' Write markers once
it's completely dried.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I hope you have
fun on our Blog Hop today, and be sure to visit
