Deb and I got these fun corner punches at the same time, and she is so right.....they are so much fun to play with! If you don't have them you REALLY need to contact Loreen and get some! They are so easy to use, and add that little extra to your creation!
So far, I have used the corner punches to accent the insides of my cards. Below are some of my examples!
Wishing you and your family a splendid holiday season! May your 2009 be creative, successful, and inky!

Well, I do love punches but never can be very inventive! I ordered 3 corner punches from Loreen at Wish on a Scrap
They are awesome! I used my Coluzzle to cut out the circle, pied the circle and punched between the pieces. If you hold the punch at an angle, soooo easy. Then cut anotehr circle to put the punched out cirlce on. I had some great chipboard pieces that I had never used. They came from the $ store. This was so easy to do!
Give it a try, you will be amazed how easy it is.
I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas!

You so need to contact Loreen today to get your colored applique! Head on over to the store to order yours! The snowpeople are colored with my Copics (which you can also get from the Wish store)!

When Loreen asked me what I would like to play with next, I immediately thought of Liquid Applique! I have seen so many people use it on their cards for the "fluff" on Santa's hat and the like! And the look it gives is so great!!! Did you know this stuff comes in MANY different colors?!? Wow the possibilities are endless when it comes to creating!
Today I am going to share with you my snow creations using white liquid applique! I made a BUNCH of these candy bar wrappers for the craft fair that I was in recently and they sold like hot cakes!
Ooops, this next one kind of got smudged! Didn't even realize it until now! ha ha!

Well after recieving 6 new mags yesterday in the mail from Loreen the ole MOJO returned! So last night, the dining room table became a mess once again.
The base of the card is from SCS and is called a Double pocket card. I made this a while back. Worked perfect for what I wanted. Tilda with Dalecarlia Coat, I love this stamp! Colored with my Prisma's and googone. Nesties used for rectangles, DP is from TAC, Penelope and Willoughby,I love that paper! Ribbon is stash. I used a snowflake punch for the snowflakes and colored them with my dewdrops, just a touch of stickles and a pale green rhinestone in the middle! The little tree is also a punch. Winter Wishes is Fiskars "Tis the Season" acrylic stamp set. The card has two pockets but I only used one. The little envie is done on my enveloper, a wonderful gift from Loreen! Thanks Loreen!!! I love that tool! Making envies are FUN! I tied it with ribbon! I used my scor mat from Scor-Pals and that is also a great tool! all those angles are a cinch!

Loreen just started carrying the Magnolia stamps and I was one happy girl to order some of these fun Tilda stamps! I love the Magnolias, and they are so much fun to color!
First I made this super fun card with Tilda with Hood! I colored her with my Copics, and used liquid applique and glitter for the edging on her hood and shawl. Tim Holtz snowflake embossing powder was used on the sentiment.
Next I made a candle with Tilda with Dalecarlia Coat. This Tilda is so darn cute. I stamped her with my Stazon jet black ink onto tissue paper. Then I colored her with my Copics. After adhering her to the candle with wax paper and my heat tool, I added some stickles to glitz her up! Then added the snowflakes and bling for extra shine!
I can't wait to ink up the others that I have ordered! So be on the look-out for more samples! I also have some surprises that I have made this weekend and will have them posted later this week, so make sure you stop back!!!
Don't forget to head on over to the store and get your supplies so you can play with Tilda too! Loreen has the best supplies!!!!

This is the BIG project I was talking about, the one I said you were going to love using the Wish on a Scrap Kit. It looks like a purse, but it's actually a little photo holder! That's right, open this darling up and you've got a spot for 2 pictures! What a way to showcase your work!
I got this project idea from a blog called Stampspaperscissors. However, since I didn't have many of the items she used for her project, I kinda created my own variation of this darling little project, perfect for a gift for any female in one's life.
And I LOVE the way it looks at an angle. That fold is just so cool I think. Sure it could have been a flat based purse, but this gives it so much more character!
And here's the little detail on the front of the purse. The ribbon and hardware are not from this month's kit, but everything else is. As for the interior, well I decided to use 2 stamped images in the smaller areas, you could always use flowers but since I'm a book lover I decided to use images related to that. You can also see from this picture how I used velcro to adhere the top together.There are a few more pictures on my blog. Please swing by and say hello!

I just wanted to post a beautiful project that Ann made with the September kit and wish her congratulations on winning the October Contest Kit. Check out Ann and her wonderful work on her blog. Join me in congratulating her on win =)

I cannot get by without making a card! I love to make cards, love bling! and I love this October kit! The ribbon is from my stash! Everything else is from the Oct. kit. The chipboard is from the Sept. kit! I made an envie to go with this card. ON... drum roll.....The ENVELOPER!! What a cool tool that is! I made the box envelope. Just the right amount of room in there to make your cards EXTRA thick! Of course this won't be going through the mail, but I just think its that added extra touch to a card!
Thanks for stopping by, make sure you check out Kim and Kimmies creations!! AWESOME!!

OK Crafters....so I told you I was working on a SUPER fun project with this kit! Here are my nugget tins that I have been working on! These are SO easy and fun to make! You can head on over to Wish On A Scrap to get your tins, paper, adhesives, and flowers to put these fun tins together! These would make WONDERFUL gifts for family, friends, and teachers....who doesn't love chocolate! I know I do!
To make these fun tins all you need is: Hershey Nuggets, your little pieces of paper (cut 1" x 3") for each nugget, your tin (of course), and whatever you would like to decorate the outside of the tins!**I want to give credit to my Stampin' Up Demo, Kersten M. who gave me the directions to make these cutie pies!**
Can't wait to hear what you think! Thank you for taking time to leave your lovely comments....they do make my day!
Can I just tell you, every month I say, "WOW, this is the best kit Loreen has EVER put together..." but this month, she's blown me away. The October Wish on a Scrap kit is by far the best kit I've seen for this month.
So I thought I'd share my first creation with it. Sorry that the pictures are a little dark, I took them at 11:30pm and there wasn't much light. But you can see what I made. It's a card holder with 3 cards. The papers are just so yummy, I've been hording it like a fool!
Card 3 (and my favorite of the trio)...
And the notecard holder...
And make sure you keep checking back both here and on my blog, because I have a project I"m currently working on that (hopefully) will blow you away!

I can't wait to see what everyone else creates with their kits! I have another SURPRISE in the making! I just have to add finishing touches to it and then I will have another post! See.....I told you all I can't keep my hands off of this kit!!!

Kim is right, this kit is FABULOUS!! The colors are rich! All of my favorite colors on paper! I did something I normally don't do, ALTER! I'm not good at it, for some reason getting from the brain to the fingers don't make it! My granddaughter Reese had her first birthday! Her colors? Pink and brown!! Paper was perfect for something to make for her in rememberance of that party! So I made a coaster frame. Put my favorite photo of her in it, and give it to my daughter M, for Reeses room.
The idea's are endless with this paper!!! Super kit Loreen!!! Love everything in there! THANK YOU!!!

Welcome to my 1st Tutorial for Wish On A Scrap! I was so excited when Loreen asked me to make a tutorial for all of you with such awesome supplies! I had so much fun playing with these beads....just beware when you play you will have little beads all over the place. hee hee! Well I sure did! You will be taking your everyday Cuttlebug embossing folder and turning it into a whole new tool to give you a very elegant look!
For this project you will need:
1. Cuttlebug with A plate and both B plates;
2. Cuttlebug Embossing Folder of your choice;
3. Ink (I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink);
5. Sticky Powder; and
6. Micro Beads (these come in MANY colors....e-mail Loreen what color you want and she can definitely get them for you!)
(All of the above items can be purchased from Loreen at Wish On A Scrap...you should head on over to get your supplies!)
First, you are going to take your brayer and get it all full of ink (make sure your folder has LOTS of ink on it....you are going to have to work fast so that your ink doesn't dry before you put your sticky powder on). Roll your ink on which ever side of the embossing folder that you want your beads on. For this project I chose the background area to have the beads and then then branches would be embossed without any beads. (Don't worry about your embossing folder getting stained, I just rinsed mine off with water almost 20 minutes after I was done making my project and the folder cleaned right up!)
Next, you are going to place your paper inside your embossing folder. Then sandwich your folder as you normally would when embossing. (A plate on the bottom, then a B plate, then your embossing folder, and then another B plate.) Crank this sandwich through your Cuttlebug.
Take your paper out of the embossing folder and immediately cover the paper full of sticky powder as shown below.
When you tap off the excess sticky powder your paper should look like the below picture.
You will then use your heat tool to heat up all the sticky powder which will create the adhesive so your beads will stick to your paper.
Once you have all the paper nice and warm, immediately dip the sticky side of your paper into your tub with your micro beads. You might have to rewarm the sticky powder to get all of the beads to stick.
After your paper is completely covered in beads, take your heat tool and warm up the whole page once again to set the beads.And that is how you create an awesome bead page for your cards or scrapbook pages. Below is a card that I created with this technique. The beads add that extra flare to your card!
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Now, head on over to Loreen's store and get your supplies so you can play with beads too!
