8th Grade Night Project for Athletes

I was responsible to create a special project for our 8th Grade athletes last week.  Here is what I came up with.  The glass containers were filled with blue shimmering crinkle and white crinkle filler as well as candy.  My BIG SHOT and dies and Decor Elements Vinyl were instrumental in this project.

My eldest son, Steven, is on the front right of the picture.  Each family provided a picture of the 8th-grade athlete from their K3/K4/K5 years to provide contrast to how much they’ve changed throughout the years.  It’s hard to believe they’re reaching the end of their grade-school years.

Decor Elements – Valentine’s Day Projects

I’ve made several projects with raw vinyl and my Big Shot.  It is so easy to create fun home decor items with these items.  Here are a few of the projects I’ve made:

25 Days of Holiday Projects – Day 6

At my Simple Christmas Gifts Stamp Camp, I wanted my customers to create a NONholiday-themed gift.  The reason for this is simple – by the time you share your holiday gifts with others, the holiday decor comes down very soon afterwards! 

I used a basic wood plank and had my son Michael spray paint it (thanks, Mike!) with a cream-colored paint.  The Inspiration Decor Elements set has four sayings (life, hope, faith, and love).  It is easy peasy to cut them out separately and get 4 projects out of 1 set.  I used some retired flower Decor Elements for these plaques, but there are several other choices still available you could use.  Just add some picture hangers to the back, and you are all set!

Halloween Decor Elements

2009fallproject-glassjar

At my Fabulous Fall stamp camp, my customers altered these glass canisters with the Definitely Decorative Spooky Expressions.  Aren’t these just adorable?  You can fill them up with candy, potpouri, tissue paper, candles, or any other goody.  I think this item is such a fabulous deal – you get three "faces" for only $4.95!  Certainly, you could use them all on one project (like a metal washtub or large wooden sign), but I like the ease and functionality of separating them out!

My customers also made little boxes using the Big Shot and the Box #2 die.  They stamped with the Frightful Nights stamp set and embossed the gift tag with the new Grateful Greetings stamp set.  They filled them with yummy chocolates.  You could easily make a bunch of these and add them in the jar as a staff gift or to hand out for your trick or treaters.  These would be a big hit!  I love the Box #2 die – it only takes just a small bit of Sticky Strip to complete the box.
