Anti-Bac Holder

Do you have blogs that you love? I have quiet a few =) Erica Cerwin is one of those bloggers whose projects I adore! They are always so fun and bright and very simple to do.

A few months back I found her tutorial for an Antibacterial Soap Holder I even bought the small oval punch just for this project. Well I finally made the holder and let me tell you it is so super easy! Very step by step easy to follow directions.

I made the for the kids' teachers last week for the first day of school. I want to do something for them for each holiday and things like that. I try every year but this time I'm going to stick with it!

They were a hit and the kids said they will have the best smelling teachers =)

Witchy Stamps

So when I saw the sketch over at Paper Pal Arts, I knew exactly what I was gonna looking for paper, no deciding what colors, just sit and do it!

HERE is the sketch:

Ppa sketch

Here's my hats!

I used my postage stamp punch (You know, the-one-I-had-to-have-cuz-I swore-I would-use-it-all-the-time punch) with the hats and pop dotted 'em on a black square. I glitterized the bottom hat with dazzling diamonds.

I'm trying this whole non traditional Halloween thing right now. So we'll see how far it goes until I'm back to Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Peach Parfait......

**With these hat being a solid image, it's important to condition your stamp before using it. You can do this by basically taking an eraser and erasing the thin layer of film off your stamp. Trust me, night and day difference when stamping. I used THIS post over at Technique Trail for tips.**

Clean & Simple Flowers

Ahhh Wednesday already! This week is so far so good, but I won't count my chickens yet because the week isn't over....always a skeptic huh?!

I used the following as inspirations for my clean card: Clean & Simple 152 & Color Cue #15

I made the melon mambo flower the main image and lightly stamped the image in baja breeze and so saffron flowers on the side, that way the main image didn't look so lonely. I cut a decorative label punch in half and put one at the top and one on the bottom (that punch is so versatile!). The dots are done with a Stampin' Write Marker (another I don't regret it purchase). I shoulda only done every 1/8" instead of 1/16" but eh it looks ok.

Happy Wednesday!

{Paper} SU! Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Whisper White
{Ink} SU! Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo, Baja Breeze, So Saffron
{Stamp} SU! Button Buddies, Happiest Birthday Wishes
{Extras} Button, Decorative Label Punch

Need DSP? Look no further! When you buy 3 packs of Designer Series Paper at the regular price of $10.95 you get one is a good thing =)
