Woo hoo! The Magnetic Platform is back! Stampin' Up! has received a full shipment of Magnetic Platforms (Item #130658, $39.95)! They are pleased to announce that the great wait is over and they can start filling new orders on September 12 (today!)
Why not place an order for the magnetic platform, and add the new Envelope Punch Board (Item #133774, $19.95)?
My oldest granddaughter had a birthday recently. I made her a few jewelry items and packaged them up in a little tin for her.
Here is the card I made for her using Gorgeous Grunge and Tape It stamp sets. It's not my usual style but thought it was appropriate for a teenager.
Torri and Darcie (my daughter in law) took a European trip for Torri's high school graduation this summer. They enjoyed Paris and the Eiffel Tower so I thought these items were perfect!
I got this bracelet and paper last year at CKC. I used my hole punch to punch the circles out and glued them on with Crystal Effects.
This is a little key chain with the Eiffel Tower and a jewel on it. This stamp set is retired but it is great for these soda top items. I really was surprised that Stampin' Up took these out of the catalog this year!
This is the necklace I made for Torri. Again, with the Parisian theme.
Here is everything inside the small tin. I put a piece of DSP (non SU) in the bottom of the tin.

I am so in love with this necklace! When I taught the MDS class a couple of weeks ago, Nancy Carr gave me this great necklace that she made. I have been wanting to make some of these but I keep forgetting to order the Soda Caps (mini catalog). I have then on order now but I couldn't wait and bought some this weekend with a gift certificate that I got for my birthday (in October). I'll be playing with them today since it is pouring down rain here and COLD!!

I did something a little different today. I was creative but with jewelry! Remember THIS post at Christmas? Well, today the Newcomers Garden Club had the gal who created the Jewelry Trees come and help us each make one with our own special jewelry. My Aunt Love had so much jewelry that I thought I would have no problems making one or two of my own .... except Mom has gotten rid of a lot of her jewelry. So I scavenged through Mom's jewelry box, my jewelry box and even found some pretty cuff links in Sonny's box! I had bought some velvet fabric a few weeks ago when I was in Pittsburgh. Now all I have to do is find a pretty frame for my creation.
I wasn't going to do a tree shape because I was afraid it would look too Christmas-y and I want to hang it year round. But, I changed my mind and I really like it! Most of the jewelry are old pieces that were my aunt's - some shoe clips, pins and brooches. But there are some pieces that are mine - like the spoon pin, Texas rhinestone pin, my name that came from a necklace I had when I was a teen, an earring that my kids gave me when they were young ... What fun to look at something and remember when!
It was fairly easy to make. We just glued the velvet to cardboard (hot glue); cut the backs off the jewelry with wire clippers; made the arrangement and hot-glued them down.
