Just a few things to Share

I thought I would share my Make & Takes from my retreat last week. I did four of them and made all of them super simple.

This little ornament is using a coin slide. I stippled the slide with L'Amore Red, Jardin Moss and Raw Sienna Palette pads. I stamped the peas on a white piece of cardstock and colored with colored pencils. I then adhered it between the slides. I punched a hole in the top with the Crop a dile; added a ribbon and brad and you're done.

The stamp set has just been discontinued by TAC.

This little snowman box is a die cut I got from Donna Polley at She is really reasonable and quick. Not to mention she is also a TAC Demonstrator. The box is called a small pyramid box on her site.

This is a magnet calendar done on a coaster. The calendars came from a company called vippies. Their website is This is the medium sized calendar. A fast project that would be great for craft fairs.

This is called a Z fold card. I used the floral dingbats set, More Abundance and the Hemingway Paper collection. This card is also in an older post so you may have already seen it.

We had a Shoebox Swap. We had 11 people get in it. This is the project I did. It is also a die cut from Donna Polley. The link for her site is above. I used the Simply Christmas set and Whimisical Greetings.

This is the purse I made from a wooden box I had bought and put in everyone's goodie bag. The post before this shows the contest winners purses. It was fun to see what everyone came up with.
See you all in a day or two. Have a good one!!!!!!
