Clear Acrylic Block Guide

My mother came up with the greatest idea! She made a guide so people can see what the sizes of the Clear Acrylic Blocks look like. She has this out on her table so when people order the clear stamps they can hold this over the images in the catalog and make sure they are getting the right sized clear blocks to fit them all.
This is the greatest idea! The only thing I would add is put the ordering number on them so people have the size, the letter, the price and the number to order each block. You could also do this out of the clear window sheets so you can see through it and just write on it with a permanent marker!

Such a good idea Mommo! Thanks!

Military Vehicle or Jeep Card

Here is my Military vehicle (or Jeep) that I made out of the template from my school bus!
All I did to make this was to cut the top off of my bus template and make it out of Always Artichoke card stock instead of yellow. I also put the front grate on in the opposite direction.

Below are the original cards.

Fire, Bus and Police Car Cards

Here are my bus, police car and fire truck cards! These are all vehicles that my son loves so I thought it would be a good three card project! These would work great as cards or as additions to scrapbook pages.
With school starting the bus is the perfect card for bus drivers coming to pick up the kids or for your scrapbook pages of the first day of school! I thought a police and fire truck would be great for scrapbooking or thanking our wonderful service people.
You can easily change the color of the fire engine to be a tractor trailer truck or change the bus to green to make a hummer or military vehicle!

*** I am now working on being able to offer my new templates in svg. format so those of you that have the Cricut or other cutting machines will be able to use them! Thanks so much to Danielle R who offered me all the help in figuring this out (and it was her idea for me to do this!).
If you want the template in this format just send me an email after your purchase and I will send the templates to you this way. I should have it figured out soon!

Pull-Out Corn Card

Corn In

Corn Out
(Hee-hee, I know, I'm super mature)

Here is my pull-out corn card!
And yes, I did have a reason for making a corn shaped card besides corn jokes. My husbands Uncle gave us a bunch of fresh corn from his garden the other day and we just had it for dinner. It was really good so the kids thought we should send him a thank you card. Ashley said it should be shaped like an ear of corn... so here we are!

To make this card I cut out the large corn husk out of garden green card stock and the two side pieces out of Wild Wasabi card stock. The corn is cut out of Daffodil Delight. I sponged the edges of the husks with Wasabi ink.

To make the rows of corn I used the scallop edge punch. I just cut a 2" wide strip of Daffodil delight paper and punched the end. I cut that strip off and then did the next and so on.

I sponged the punched edges with Daffodil ink and then glued them down on my piece of corn in rows. For the last row I traced the end of the corn and punched the top (so you wouldn't see the cut edge) and then glued that on top.

I put a very small line of Tombow adhesive along the edge of my back husk shape. I then put the right husk on top. Make sure you stay close to the edge so you will be able to slide your ear of corn in at the end.

Do the same thing for the other side making sure not to overlap on the first side so it will still be loose enough to open.

Let it dry and slip in your piece of corn with your message written on the bottom.
Instant thank you card for free corn!
I thought this would also be cute on a fall scrapbook page... maybe with the journaling on the inside corn card.
I'm sure you will see one here eventually!

Owl Punch Makes an Owl!

I have had this Owl Punch for quite some time now and this is the first actual owl that I made out of it! I have been using it for all of its pieces but this is my first owl. That being said, he is so cute!
I used the Woodland Walk DSP to make the tree just by cutting the shapes out of it. The mouse body is half of a 3/4" circle punch and the head is made using the owl punch circles. The middle of the ears were cut using the Crop-a-dile.
The sentiment is from the Word Play stamp set and is punched out using the Decorative Label punch from the upcoming Holiday Mini.

Buttons, Buttons and More Buttons!

Here are some more buttons that I have made out of paper using some of the other punches. I figured, why keep it to just circles?!
For the ones with the patterned paper on top I just did 5 layers of card stock of a matching color and then just the top layer with patterned paper so I didn't have to use a lot of it.
