Daughters flipflop invites

These were made for my Daughters Birthday. Her party is at a pool so we thought a flipflop theme would be fun.
I hate cutting so I got to thinking how I could get a flipflop look without cutting. I know it's not a conventional flip flop look but you get the idea right?

I used the tagnote diecut from Stampin up and I used the curly label punch. I also used a 1/8 inch punch. Only stamp used was the all holiday. The designer paper is from a dollarstore and the ribbon I used was either orange or certainly grosgrain ribbon. I typed up the info and printed it up and used the tagnote diecut again. Then I just stuck them together. Lots of fun and quick to because of no cutting. hehe TFL

Name fram for customer's daughter

I did this frame for a teacher at my daughters school!! I made her 1st daughter one a few years ago as a gift and she came to me wanting one for her youngest girl. It's got alot of bling that's hard to see from the picture!! I got the frame at Michaels crafts and used a Stampin up retired lowercase alphabet. The small butterfly is from the set live yourf dreams. The Designer paper is stampin up tea party. I also used so saffron, whisper white and almost amythyst. Accessories: I used Stampin up's butterfly die cut, large oval and oval scallop, white taphia ribbon, wide white organdy ribbon , white spackle tape(mesh) from home depot and lastly lots of dazzeling diamonds. I love doing the frames. thanks for stopping by: Terry

Frame and card for Retiring Teacher

Above is a Name frame I was hired to do for a Retiring Male Teacher at my Daughters school. I made the frame similar to the card below as far as the background goes. I bought the Frame at Michaels Craft. Loved it because it's very manly looking. I got a hold of a past yearbook and cut and matted the front part of the school and the sign name that's infront of the school. If you really look close you'll see I made the page look like a faux book front. I have scoring on the side to give it a binder look. I embossed the paw stamp on the top of the binder part.
Stamps I used were Artifects, It's Academic, Natures beauty and retired set of little alphabet from Stampin up. I used the computer for the teacher quote on the side. Ribbon I used a blue grograin. Ink I used blue frost spectrum pad for the Letters and I used so saffron. Thanks for stopping by: Terry

More Dominos from my crafty day

My Domino Crafty day

I had a crafty day yesterday. I made these dominos into decorated keychains.
I used Stampin up retired chalks for the base heat set it then stamped what I wanted in stazon on. I used their markers to color in or you can use sharpies. I just heat set the color and had my husband drill the holes before I started. At the end I sealed them with a clear matte finish sealer. I bought the keychains at michaels but had to buy the top ring separate. otherwise you wouldn't be able to get the domino on. I used some bling too just so you know. Thanks for stopping by. Terry
