Altered Wood-Mount Case

I just love all the different ways I am finding everywhere to alter the wood-mount cases Stampin' Up! sells.
I saw a video to use one of the half size cases to make a little Post it note case. You can see the original video that I saw and create some of your own. Here is the pictures of the one that I made from the tutorial.

Instead of using pencils which is what she used, I managed to find some pens from Staples that are assorted colors and I believe, come in a box of 12.

December 2013's Pumpkin Kit

Here is the Real Life Journal that was the December 2013 My Paper Pumpkin kit.
Of the projects that came within the year, this is my favorite! I like staying organized so this project might actually be used. 

January 2014 My Paper Pumpkin

I didn't really get at the kits last year but this year I am going to try my darndest to get them done each month. I am always so excited when it comes but never get around to them.
This year is going to be different. I am off to a good start and have the January kit all finished. I didn't veer too far from its original look but I did fancy it up a tad :)
They stepped them up a little. The kit this month has some free embellishments and there was 2 sheets of the stickers. I still have lots left over! 

Order your My Paper Pumpkin kit today and choose me as your demo!
You will enjoy something new each month :)

Happy Craftin!

Altered Wood-Mount Cases

I finally got all the cases done that I wanted to do for my girls.
These cases are really quite simple to do. For the base piece of DSP, cut it to 7 1/16 x 11 3/16 and just decorate from there. I had somewhat of a hard time trying to find different ways to decorate them, but I managed and am really pleased with how they turned out.

All the DSP for these cases was from my retired stock so that is one way to use up some of your old stock.
The letters are from Taylored Expressions but everything else is Stampin' Up!

       I am also doing one of these cases for the My Paper Pumpkin stamps that will come in the monthly kits for this year. Last year I used the clear mount stamps and had to use 2 of them, this way I will just use a chunk of the window sheet to stick the stamps to and that way they will all fit in one case.

April 2013 My Paper Pumpkin

I finally got to doing some of the My Paper Pumpkin kit's from 2013!! I managed to do the very first one but that was it. The rest got stacked to do later. I am so excited to be ahead of the game and get to
starting them. 
I want to first of all thank everyone on Pinterest as I used a few different cards to get my inspiration for doing my cards. I am really pleased with how they turned out!

January's Club Cards

I finally got my butt in gear and got January's Club Cards done!
I really love the Mojo Monday Sketches and find that I use them a lot. I used last weeks sketch for Card #1, Mojo 327 and Stampin' Up! set Santa's List

Card #2 is also a Mojo Monday Sketch. It's an older one, Mojo 312 and I used the Kidoodles stamp set from Stampin' Up!
I have to admit, I totally forgot about this little feller! I won't do that again, he's too cute!

Happy Crafting!

Tool Box

I made myself a tool box from a wood mount case and decided I would make one for a few of my ladies.
Here is the first of 6 that I will be doing. Keep posted as I will be putting them up as I make them!
They are great for beginners with just a few things to take to Club Night.
The measurement I used for the Base DSP was 11 3/16 x 7 1/16, that gives you a little room on the edges so it's not too tight when decorating.

Happy Crafting :)
