Family Sunday: Kristin’s Fun Projects

Kristin My daughter Kristin has always been uber creative.  She and her husband recently moved to Austin, TX and moved into a new apartment.  She has been busy decorating.  But she also goes to garage sales, buys salvagable pieces, remakes them and resells them for a great profit – all in the same day usually!

(She also has a cooking blog!)

Here’s just a couple of her projects.

Garage Sale Find – glider before make over:

Stampin’ Up! Just Believe Notepad Tutorial

just believe notebook

A small, handy decorated notepad can be a perfect gift for a birthday or thank you.  I made similar little pads and attached a little bag of candy kisses as a thank you to some friends who helped me with my daughter’s wedding a couple of years ago.

All you need is a little 3″ X 5″ notepad found in any drug store, Basic Black cardstock, Whisper White Craft stamp pad and a stamp set.  In this example, I used Stampin’ Up! Just Believe stamp set.

Sometimes getting around the spiral binding can seem a little tricky.  So I created this video tutorial to show you how.

Watch the Video: How to Decorate a Spiral Notebook

As you can see it’s super easy to get the chalkboard effect with the black cardstock and the white craft pad.  Also, I like to keep the front of the notebook super clean and simple without a lot of embellishments because I think it’s easier to carry with you for taking quick notes.   But isn’t it just so much more fun to take notes in a sweetly decorated notebook?!  🙂

Be sure to use lots of adhesive to keep your cover intact.  I used SNAIL adhesive in the video, but Multipurpose Liquid Glue would be an excellent choice too.

Stampin’ Up! Halloween Treat Petite Purses!

halloween purse treat boxes Remember the angry bird purse? – well, what about Halloween! These Halloween purses were inspired by projects created by Missi Roeber and featured in the September exclusive Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator magazine.

Each little purse has it’s own little personality and each started with the Big Shot and the Petite Purse Bigz Die.

frankenstein purse treat box

Let’s start with Frankie!  I started by die cutting the Petite Purse Die in Lucky Limeade.  Then I used a white gel pen to trace the lid on the back side of black cardstock.  Then I hand trim his hair with Paper Snips  to fit over the lid.

The eyes were punched with circle punches and highlighted with white gel pen.  I punched the nose from the corner of a square punch.  Black Glimmer Brads were added for bolts and the mouth and stitching were hand drawn with a black Stampin’ Write Marker.  The edges of the box and the nose were sponged with black ink.

jack-o-lantern purse treat box

Jacko the Jack-O-Lantern is Tangerine Tango embossed with the Stripes Embossing Folder.   When you use the embossing folder on the purse, you’ll need to run it through twice, once for the front and once for the back, lining up the stripes with the bottom fold line of the purse.  After embossing, I sponged it with Tangerine Tango ink to bring out the stripes.  The mouth was created with the Extra-Large Oval Punch, punching out the ‘teeth’ with paper snips.  The eyes and nose were punched with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and trimmed to size.

halloween bat purse treat box

Batko the Halloween bat was created with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and the Extra Large Oval Punch and the ¾” & ½” circle punches or his eyes.  To create his wings, I first punched two ovals  and then punched small circles from the bottom edges.   The wings are then adhered to the back of the purse.
