Good Morning! Well….before I inspire you with some video links for you to watch and be inspired with…we have a WINNER! You are just going to LOVE this fun and easy project….you know me, I love to share with you ideas and inspiration….
On Wednesday I had another challenge as to how I would choose up to $125 with of products from the supplies that I used on Wednesdays post to fill my picks for the Ultimate Bundle. I gave you the clue that the targeted amount that I was going for was $124.50. If you missed the post on Wednesday…..please click here as it is a super sweet card that ALWAYS gets rave reviews!
The winner is Dana M…..way to go and please email me so I can mail you the Fast Fuse. Here was Dana’s picks:
- Stampin’ Trimmer
- Layering Circle Framelits Dies
- 1/2″ Circle Punch
- Pansy Punch
- Whisper White Medium Envelopes
- Multipurpose Liquid Glue
- Tear & Tape Adhesive
- Stampin Dimensionals
- Polka Dot Basics Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
- Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
All of these items are link below at the end and when you add them up…..yep, $124.50! That is a perfect target amount to make the most of a $125 threshold. It truly is as easy as that…pick what YOU want and just pay $99 but remember, you can still pick ANY 2 stamp sets….and it all ships for FREE!
You can see from the list above that these are staples and tools that make the classics. I adore punches and Stampin’ Up! does a fantastic job with the quality of our punch offerings. They are a HUGE time saver and I encourage you to have a solid punch collection as it is a product that you will use over and over. When I started….I would add a punch on every order….and then in no time, you will have a great collection.
Punches are a product that I rarely get rid of if they become discontinued. If there is a specific punch that goes with a discontinued product than I might but in general if it is a shape I will keep it. I think we all love and covet our punches.
On Wednesday I shared that we were going to get Easter Inky today….and what I was going to do was show you the finished products that I made from doing the below videos…..BUT….I am KNEE DEEP in a project that is going to make you smile from ear to ear but I do not have the directions typed up yet…..
So…the moral of the story is – you are going to have to wait a wee bit but TRUST ME – it is worth the wait because you will just have the biggest smile…so fun…so cute yet very doable! In the meantime….ENJOY THESE VIDEOS as they are just amazing and these are the easiest project to do!
The videos are SUPER FUN techniques to use alcohol inks with plastic Easter Eggs….Tim Holtz is a fabulous teacher and trust me, you will be wowed with how easy they are to make. Sit Back, enjoy these short videos and then grab coupons to go to the store and get the supplies – you will have a ball!
TIP FOR THIS VIDEO – Remember to get the smaller plastic Easter Eggs…..I bought a bag at Hobby Lobby that had 24 for a whopping.60! The foil paper is also super inexpensive…..like $3.00 for 50 sheets. Last Friday Jeanie and I made these and they came together perfectly – the only thing that we giggled about was the fact that the end product looked like a super expensive chocolate from a candy store….and when our loved one open them up and see a Hersheys Chocolate….well….they will know that we love them!
TIP FOR THIS VIDEO: I had a hard time finding white eggs where I live but here is a heads up…Jeanie found them at 5 Below…..a store that I have yet to go in but that’s where they were! These make up an AMAZING EGG…they would be beautiful as a centerpiece on your table or you could fill them etc…..
If you have not played with Alcohol Inks….I say, grab a coupon and go to the store and get a few colors…..don’t go crazy and get a ton but grab colors that you like. They are a super fun product to work with and there are ENDLESS videos out there with different techniques!
I will see you soon…..(hopefully later today) and if not, I will be in your IN BOX in the morning! If you are out and about getting some of the supplies to make this super fun eggs…..go ahead and grab some Easter Candy as when you see my next post…..you will have wished that you got a PICK UP TRUCK LOAD of candy….that Easter Bunny…..he is a sweet guy!
