Good Grief; where have I been? Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida
Good grief indeed!
You would not believe the internet issues I have had. I've been trying to recruit physicians from home but my DSL service is a joke. Then my e-mail started sending out random spam, so I changed all my passwords. Including my Blogger one.....which I couldn't remember....tee hee! My whole life has been a comedy of errors.
Anyway, here are a few of my Spellbinders(TM) Christmas projects that have been posted on the Spellbinders' blog, so I can show them to you now!
First is a log cabin that I made using several different Spellbinders die templates. The details are here on the blog. There are additional photos and I believe a supply list as well. It was a lot of fun to make! The scalloped die template would make a great gingerbread house roof, wouldn't it?
I found these awesome papier maiche stars at Oriental Trading Company last year, so I decided to cover it and decorate it this year (finally - ha!) I used the Nested Hearts die templates as well as Labels Fifteen peeking out from the back. The paper is retired from Close To My Heart, but any vintage paper would do nicely. Or take it in another direction by using bright and cheery colors. By the way, you can find my rose tutorial here.
My third project features a viola made from Labels Fourteen. And real wood paper - how cool is that! I colored it with Copic Markers and used Doodle Parts to finish the viola handle and vents. The 2010 Snowflake die template is covered with glitter. What a mess I made!
Now, I usually give you all of the SKU numbers, but I am anxious to get this posted. And I am a bit lazy tonight too. Ha. Suffice it to say that you can find all of them here.
I was in Gainesville last weekend to celebrate my son graduating (go GATORS)! He earned two Bachelor's degrees - one in Physics and one in Astronomy. He is so awesome!
Well, I'll be back soon with a couple of more Christmas projects - can you believe it is seriously almost here?
