Simply Scored Class: Project 4

We had to make a simple box with our Simply Scored as well.  The bottom is measured at 9"x9" and scored every 3".  The lid is 5 1/8"x5 1/8" and scored at 1" all the way around.  We added a peek-a-boo window so you can see the treats inside.

Simply Scored Class: Project 3

We HAD to make a lollie you know.  Well, I turned it into a Christmas ornament.  To make the lollie I cut 2 1"x11" pieces of Garden Green card stock.  We scored on the Simply Score every 1/2" and then accordion folded them and attached them together.  Added some Shimmer Gold card stock, rhinestone, and some Log Cabin Smooch Spritz.

Simply Scored Class: Project 2

We made this diamond pattern with our Simply Scored by lining up the corner at the 6" mark and the diagonal lines that are on your Simply Scored.  Have you noticed them?  Go check it out.  It makes it so easy to do patterns like this.

Simply Scored Class: Project 1

I held a Simply Scored class last week and the next few days will show the projects we did.  Everyone brought their Simply Scored with them and learned a few ways to use it.  First we did this fancy fold card.  It is so simple and I was inspired by multiple demonstrators who made a card similar to this one.

TIP:  Card Stock is 5 1/2 x 12" :   score at 1", 2", 4", 6" and 9" accordion fold and make it your own.
These measurements came from Janella Sibert Clough , a fellow demonstrator.

Making Stampin' Up! Cookies

The kids and I LOVED making cookies with the Sweet Pressed cookie stamps.  The shortbread recipe is delicious and it was a memorable success!  The kids could not believe they could stamp on cookies.

Ceramic Christmas Ornaments

Here are my ornaments that I did this year.  I bought plain ceramic ornaments at the craft store.  I painted them with ceramic paint and then I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the snowflake and embossed my images on the rest.  I sealed with acrylic sealer and then added my ribbon.  Easy but makes a great gift for anyone.

Christmas Countdown

I made this advent countdown and I LOVE it.  This would make a great gift for someone and it really did not take too long to make but no one would ever know that by looking at it.  I found the tin sign at a craft store and grabbed it.  I used the 25 & Counting stamp set out of the Holiday Mini Catalog which made this a breeze.

My Crazy Life

I have not fallen off the planet.  I have just been consumed with my family this past week so I thought I would share.  Last week my daughter got strep and was down and out.  I was a crazy mom running around trying to air out the house and do every piece of laundry in hopes that no one else would get sick.  It worked because she is now well and no one else got sick.

That could not be it though.  On Monday the kids were playing football and Lorin tripped over her brother who had slipped.  Her two front teeth hit the back of his head.  His head is fine but her teeth were NOT.  Sticking out in funny angles and bleeding.  That took us to an emergency trip to the dentist who said all was well, luckily we are still talking baby teeth.  He said they would fall out on their own soon.

Next, Tuesday ,we went to an already scheduled dentist appointment where Lorin needed a filling.  This was her first one and she did GREAT!  No problems.  HOWEVER:  The dentist said the tooth sticking out at all angles needed to come out.  It was getting abscessed and it was inflamed.  She was already numb so I said go for it.  She had been in pain, not wanting to eat or drink and just miserable.  Soooooooo, the tooth came out.  Our dentist did an amazing job!  She had no idea it was even out.  He was just wiggling it just to see and it just happened to come out.  That is the story we are sticking with.

Today, she woke up and the tooth fairy had been extra special to her and brought her a little extra gift as well for her trauma:)  She wrote a note asking for something special.  She is feeling great, closing her mouth, eating and drinking and talking normally.  Maybe things can start getting back to normal around here?

So after all that, I will try to get some posts up and ready later today.  Be sure to check out all the October promotions on my right sidebar.  You don't want to miss it!
