September Camp Projects

I can't seem to get back into my routine of posting again....sorry 'bout that. I will try to do better and now that it is Fall and there won't be as much to do, I should be able to keep my promise.

I wanted to post a few of the camp projects for those of you that were not able to attend. We had a really great time and everyone seemed to enjoy the projects.

#1 - Booglie Eyes "2,4,6,8 box"
This box is so super simple to make! All you need to do is take a 1/2 sheet of paper (8 1/2 x 5 1/2) and score down the long side at 2", 4", 6", and 8". Turn to the short side and score at 1 1/2". Make slits in the 1 1/2" scores to make the flaps for the bottom of the box. Make sure you stamp your paper before you fold the box and secure it together. I took a scrap to make a handle and attached with brads. We embellished the box with an embossed mummy tag and a tag made from a shrinky dink! Attached some frayed ribbon to the mummy tag and attach all to the box with silver cord.

Full Details:
Stamps: Booglie Eyes
CS: Kraft, Whisper White, Black
Ink: Versamark, Black, black stazon (for shrinky dink)
Other: Creamy Caramel Marker, Black Grosgrain, Silver Cord, Black Emb. Powder, Brads, Shredded Paper, shrinky dink sheets, tag punch

This project was inspired by a swap I received at Regionals made by Nancy Smith of Evansville, IN.

Stamps: Give Thanks
CS: Fall Flowers DP, Really Rust, Pumpkin Pie, Choc. Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Really Rust, pumpkin pie, Choc Chip, old olive
Other: Watercolor Crayons, Stampin Dimensionals, tag corner punch

I had a little trouble with this card at the camp, but when done at home, alone, no one watching, it worked out fine. It is a suspension card and you can find a full tutorial here.
Stamps: Autumn Dots Wheel, Booglie Eyes
CS: Only Orange, Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, Black
Ink: Old Olive, White Craft
Other: Eggplant & Orange Grosgrain, Hemp Twine, Tag Punch, 1 3/8 punch, 1 1/4 punch, dental floss

Today's Feature

I am really getting excited about Regionals this weekend. I have been going through by swaps from last year and can't wait to get some new ones! Here is one from last year, unfortunately there is no name or info on the back. The colors are: Not quite Navy, More mustard, choc. chip, and old olive. Fall is approaching with my favorite colors and this card reminded me of that! Enjoy.

Featured Card

This card is another from my stash. It has no information on the back so I have no idea where I got it or who made it. I think it is very classy looking and could be used for any occasion. I love reds and blacks together. This card looks like Ruby Red, black, vanilla, and copper. Enjoy.

stamp camp winner

I announced before the last camp that I would pick a winner from the people placing orders for a stamp pad or a pack of asst. card stock. The winner has been randomly drawn by my son, Jarrett and the winner is.......Jennifer Stinnett! Congrats Jennifer! Please email or call me to let me know what ink pad or paper you would like!

Featured Stampers

I am going to add a new feature to my blog called "Featured Stamper". I will pick cards out of my stash from stamp camps, clubs, swaps, etc. for you to use for your own inspiration. This will help me out during my busy weeks when I don't have time to create new stuff for you all to look at! I have chosen my cousin-in-laws and partners in crime, Tabitha Davis and Donna Ross (they are sisters and work together on most projects/camps). I received the Glub-Glub card at a swap that we did at a demonstrators meeting and the clock card was a project at one of their camps. I just want to thank them for being supportive uplines and for letting me "bum" supplies off of them when I am in a bind! Thanks girls!
