Crayon Roll

Hola Amigas! Happy Monday! I am GLAD that the weather is not as SEVERLY HOT as it has been...Have you seen the new fabric from Stampin' UP! LOVE THEM! There are three new additions to the fabric line. Here is a new project I have made not only for my nephew's birthday but to also sell at craft fairs...

Here is the Crayon Roll opened. It holds 16 crayons. Never LOSE a crayon in the car or on a trip again! And the next picture shows it closed. I added ribbon so you can just Roll it and tie it up.

These make GREAT birthday gifts, stocking stuffers and MORE! If you are interested in one or more of these please email me


Ribbon: Real Red 5/8' Grosgrain

Stamp-a-Holics Challenge 179-3D Challenge

Hola Amigas. How are you? Are you surviving the sweltering Heat Wave? Today we are going to see Kung Fu Panda 2. Then to AC Moore to buy more decorative Duck Tape. Then HOPEFULLY back home for lunch and naps. Today our 3D Challenge is brought to us by Nancy Dawson. The challenge is to make a 3D gift idea. This is what I came up with. A cute way to gift a bracelet to my neice. I saw this idea when Demo Reporters from SU Convention were sharing all the ideas they got to see In Person. Look how cute? This is one of the stamps in the NEW IB&C. It's called Kidoodles. Do you see the tie dyed paper inside. It's a coffee filter. You will need a plate and two to three ink refills. Place a couple of drops of each on the plate. I used Pretty in Pink, So Saffron and Tempting Turquoise. Then spritz with water and lay the coffee filter over it.
You can let it air dry or use your Heat Tool.

I hope you will play along with the Stamp-A-Holics.


Paper: Melon Mambo Textured, Pretty in Pink

Stamp: Kidoodles

Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Refills (Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise)

VC Rocks Blog Hop-Anything but a Card

Hola Amigas! How are you on this GORGEOUS Saturday. Yesterday my mom took Solimar, Joaquin and I out for lunch and then to a movie. My youngest sister, Sally also came with us. We saw Cars 2 because Joaquin is OBSESSED! It was really cute. And she also let them pick out a toy! Sally bought them popcorn an Icee. Thanks MOM and Sally!
Starting today we have a FA-BU VC ROCKS Blog Hop.

The theme this month is Anything But a Card.
My first and second projects are an Acrylic Frame Post It Note Holder with matching pen. These make great inexpensive gifts for teachers, secretaries and more.

Look at what a difference our DSP takes on the same project.

And my last project are Jumbo Paperclip Bookmarks. I made these for my Girl Scout Troop.
