3-D Bird in a Cage - HALF PRICE!!

This is my three-dimensional Cockatiel bird in a cage project!
I just have to say that this is my all-time favorite project and it was my mother's idea to make this! My mom, Gerry Dyer, is also a Stampin' Up demonstrator and is in my downline. She came up with the idea and I figured out how to make it!
This project DOES NOT use the two-step bird punch, it is a template that I will send you to make the bird three-dimensional. It is slightly larger in size then the bird punch. The cage stands about 9 1/2" tall and is about 4 1/2" wide. The pictures do not do this project justice, it is very elegant and beautiful. This would make a great piece to put on a shelf for decoration or in a child's room instead of a real pet! What's better then a pet that you never have to feed? These birds would also be cute all by themselves sitting around the house or in a plant!
The bottom and top of this project uses the Tulipe die. You can do this project without it, it just wouldn't be as fancy.

Because the Tulipe Die that I used to make the top and bottom of this project is retiring I am offering this tutorial at a discount for the rest of this month.
Then it will be gone!

Dry Erase Calendar -HALF PRICE!!

Dry Erase Calendar Project
This project is a Top Note framed Calendar that you can use a dry erase marker on so you can use it year after year. This would be great to use yourself at home or at work or it would also make a great gift! I used the All in the Family stamp set on it but you can easily change the entire look of the project by changing the colors and stamped images. You could also write the days of the month in under the plastic and then use your dry erase marker to cross out the days as they pass if you only wanted to use it for one year.
The calendar ties together as a book and opens up to stand on a desk and display each month.

Because the stamp set to make the calendar on this project is retiring I am offering this tutorial at a discount for the rest of this month.

Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head Cards or Game

Here is my Mr. Mrs. & Baby Potato Head Card Project!
You can make these into cards or add some Velcro or magnets to the back, put them in a case and you have a great game for kids! You can mix and match all of the parts as much as you want to make your own custom Potato Heads. Use the small potato template and you can make a baby potato head too!
If you want to do this project with kids I have added simpler versions of most of the pieces in the directions to make it a little easier for them.
The adult potato heads fit in a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" envelope without arms or if you fold the arms in. The baby potato head fits in a 3 1/2" square envelope.

Artisan Award Loser.... #5

This was another of my losing Artisan Award cards. I used the Dasher stamp set with the All Holidays stamp set for the sentiment. I used sponges to get the fade in colors near the moonlight. I used the top note die cut with the Big Shot to get the shape in the center.

June Green Mtn. Stampers Meeting

We had another Green Mountain Stamper's meeting this past Saturday under my upline Jennifer Heffernan in Addison, Vermont. We have swaps and demonstrations and some of the ladies bring in samples of their work to share. Jen so wonderfully prepares 3 make-n-takes for us to do each meeting that are always great! Everyone brings some sort of good snack to eat so we have a table of snacks and drinks.
This is a great group to be a part of! If you are interested in becoming a demonstrator and joining this great group, contact me for all of the details! You do not need to live close by! You can still participate by doing a long distance swap and Jen sends out an email after the meetings giving us a rundown of what went on and everything that was demonstrated!
I do have to say that this is a group of GREAT ladies! I did not get a chance to make a swap this month since I am preparing my swaps for convention and everyone gave me one anyway!! I have all these swaps to share just because they are great generous people! Thank you to all of you!
