Video Camera is BROKEN :(

I'm so sorry to say, my video camera is broken.  The connector inside my camera some how got damaged.  I can make videos, I just can't upload them to my computer.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet.  Hopefully I can either buy a new camera or fix the one we have.  Just not sure who to call?  Any suggestions? 

For now I will have to do tutorials via pictures.  This way you guys can still learn and get some fresh stampin' ideas. 

Thanks for visiting my blog!!

2 Way Glue Pen (item# 100425 - 3.50)

Have you ever wonder why Stampin' Up's glue is called "2 Way"?  Well it can be used two ways.  It can be used for a Permanent bond and /or a Temporary bond.

When you first get your glue pen the tip will be white.

Push and hold the tip down until it turns blue.  Once you see the blue it is ready to be used.

Ready to be used!  Always replace the cap so it doesn't dry out!

If you want a permanent bond adhere the glue to your object and while the glue is blue, make your bond immediately. 

If you want a temporary bond, (same as a post it note) then you add the glue to your object and wait until the glue turns from blue to clear.  Once it is clear it will be tacky, a removable adhesive. This is great for making a mask or using on your stencils.

Some great features of the 2 Way Glue Pen are:
  • Can be used for permanent bond or a temporary bond
  • Dries quickly
  • Great for adhering glitter
  • Chisel tip
  • Washes off with soap and water.

Punch Art - Mr. Fish!!!

I love making punch art, it is so much fun!  Here is a tuturial on how to make Mr. Fish.  I got this idea from

Punch out the following pieces:  You may pick any color of your choice. Sponge edges of all pieces with a darker color. Add a little blue to the eye.

One (1) Ornament punch - fish body
One (1) Modern label punch - fish fins
One (1) Scalloped oval - fish fin
One (1) 3/4" circle  - eye
One (1) 1`/4" circle  - center of eye

2. After all edges of pieces are sponged with color add adhesive to the front of the modern label punch out.  Leaving both edges free of tape. Adhere the punch out to the back of the fish's body so you only see the top and bottom of the punch.

3.  Glue black circle to white circle to create the eye.  Adhere the eye hanging off the fish's head.

4. Cut scallop oval so you only have 5 scallops showing. Discard the larger piece or save it for another fish.

5.  Adhere small fin to the fish. Add ant white highlight markings.

Here is a quick card I made using my fishes and one cute stamp set (You and Moi) from Stampin Up.

Have fun making your fish!!!


Pocket Matchbook Candy Holder Tutorial

Step By Step Picture Tutorial on How to make a Pocket Matchbook Candy Holder

1.  Cut two pieces of cardstock (color of your choice - I used Very Vanilla - SU) at 5 3/4" x 2 3/8"  and another at 7 3/8" x 2 3/4".

2.  Score the following pieces at the following measurements:

5 3/4" piece of cardstock needs to be scored at 2 1/4", 2 1/2", 2 3/4", 5", 5 1/4'', and 5 1/2".
7 3/8" piece of cardstock needs to be scored at 3", 3 1/2", and 6 3/4"

3.  With the 5 3/4" piece of cardstock fold the cardstock to make a mountain and then a valley fold and then adhere, as shown here. 


4. With the 7 3/8" piece of cardstock, fold the score lines, and add a piece of red line tape (I used scor tape in this example) to the 1/2" flap.  Make sure when applying the tape you place it close to the score line and not at the other edge or else your top flap won't be able to tuck inside.

5.  Place the pocket insert as shown and adhere the flap to the insert.

6.  After adhereing the insert open the matchbook pierce holes for the brads, and add brads to the front flap. 

7.  Decorate the inside flap as desired.  Black cardstock is cut at 2" x 1 3/4".  The other pieces of cardstock are cut 1/8" smaller.  Adhere to inside pocket .

8.  Decorate the front flap.  Black cardstock is cut at 2 1/2'' x 2 1/2'' .  The other layers are 1/8'' smaller. Adhere to the front flap.

Add 1 Ghiradelli chocolate inside the pocket insert.  You can make these for anyone and any occasion!  Have fun!
