Definitely Decorative!

This week over on my Sisters in Stamping blog we are highlighting the Definitely Decorative home decor elements.  I've been wanting to do a little decorating in my home office so I picked a beautiful decor element called Wild Flower Bouquet.  As you can see from the picture I put it on the mirror in my office.  Sorry for all the background mess shown in the picture.  It's my goal to get my office cleaned up by the end of the year! 


Supplies Used:

Wild Flower Bouquet Crumb Cake Large  #121668 $39.95

Decor Elements Applicator #114285 $1.95

Bigz Die Spotlight for Fabulous Friday!

This month the focus for Fabulous Friday is the Big Shot dies.  I have to admit when Stampin’ Up! first announced that we were going to start offering the Big Shot, I wasn’t that interested!  I love stamping and didn’t know then how much it would enhance and add to my stamping and other crafts!

My guest bathroom is decorated in browns and Fleur De Lys pictures and other baroque accents.  I thought it would be neat to add my own personal decorating touch and make my own Decor Element!  I used the Tulipe Bigz Die and our Chocolate Decor Elements Sheets.  I ran the decor sheet through the Big Shot using the Tulipe die and then transferred the cut out die to the mirror. 

It was so easy and inexpensive to do and now I want to make more!  The hardest part about the whole thing was taking the pictures so I could show you how it turned out.  The lighting in the bathroom is very soft to begin with, and then the flash on my camera kept washing out the image (who takes pictures of mirrors anyway?!?) and then I didn’t want my image in the mirror, so anyway, I hope you can get a good perspective from my photography!

Here is the big picture…


And here is the close up!  If you want to see it better in person, you’ll just have to come on over!




If you’d like information on creating your own personal decorations using the Big Shot and our decor elements sheets, please call or email me!

Spooky Expressions Halloween Jar!

I saw these cute jars at WalMart and just knew they would be cute with our Spooky Expressions Halloween Decor Elements!


The Spooky Expressions Decor Elements #117568 are only $4.95 and come with three different "spooky" expressions, so I can make three of these cute jars!




I put the decor element on the jar, added some 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, and stamped a little tag!  I used our Eat, Drink & Be Scary stamp set, our Scallop Circle punch, 1 3/8" Circle punch, 1 1/4" Circle punch, and our Stampin’ Write Markers to make the tag.


Here’s a close up view of the tag.


And filled up with candy ready for me to give to my favorite little monsters!


Place an order through my online store and I’ll send you detailed instructions with color pictures on how to best to apply!
