Another day, another project!

Here it is almost noon time and I still have barely got out of my own way. Hubby spoils me. On the weekends he cooks breakfast. Oh, he can cook a darn good breakfast. He leaves a giant mess ~ but the breakfast is SO worth it!

Then I thought, I'll just sit at the computer and take a look around blog land for a few minutes.... Well, that turned out to be a trip to Jacksonbell's and a few dollars later (she's having a Labor Day sale!!) I'm still sitting here.....

So I figure I might as well be productive and show you what I did yesterday.

These cards need a little something else... But the idea was to show the actual birthday. I've got a little something else cooking along the same lines as this though. Hopefully I'll get that done today and show you tomorrow!

I took the Calendar set from TAC (it's discontinued) and stamped the calendar, date and month out. Then layered that on a piece of TAC paper from the Brighten my Day collection. I then took the happy bday from the Changito set that Nic sent me and stamped that out. I used a little glitter here and there and I was done.

I am in need of making some items for my stampers group. I've been busy making things for my family and the Peddler's Mall that I've "neglected" my other duties.

I always sent little things that I make along with my customer orders. I think that it is only right. Just because we are not sitting down to actual "parties" does not mean that they should not get something. Just my way of thinking....

So being stumped ~ I was off to look at my TAC catty. I think that it's kinda cool to have "recipes" for different projects right in the catty itself. And this is one of them.

It's called a treat holder. Now, I'm not sure what type of treat you can put in there because of the belly band, but I was thinking of using it as a coupon holder for my purse... And it was really super easy to make. The directions right there in the catty with the picture really helps!

I took a piece of Chocolate Chip cs for the base. You use a paper lunch sack to create the inside.

The belly band is made up with paper from TAC's Willoughby collection and a piece of Certainly Celery cs. I used my Mega and Giga scallop punches to adhere the image on to. The image is one of the previous stamps of the month from TAC. I added a loopy brad and some ribbon scraps ~ stamped the sentiment from Trendy Greetings and I was done! I am so using this as a coupon holder....

Well, enough of my babble ~ it's time to get going and try to make something out of this day.
I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
Hugs,
Joani

Okay, Joani, I have been bothering you with emails about the post-it holder; now where do I find directions for the coupon holder?! I carry quite a few "just in case" coupons and such in my purse, and they get messy. This is a much nicer idea than a regular envelope.
