Hi everyone! I just got back from the most fun any woman with 2 small children can have! I went to the NC SU Demo (a yahoo group for NC demos) quarterly meeting! There was about 30 demos from all over NC there! And we had 6 demonstrations showing some FUN techniques and ideas! I'll share those with you another time (I'm EXHAUSTED - we started Friday night!), but I wanted to show you what I won! YES! On top of a good time and learning experience, we got prizes! YEAH! So take a look!

So, are you wondering WHAT IN THE WORLD this thing is? Well, take another look!It's a heat gun holder! AND it's been decorated using the rub-ons from the SAB mini! You can do the same with the rub-ons from the Spring/Summer Collection AND the Occasions mini! I also got to see samples where people have used the rub-ons to decorate travel mugs, glass flower vases, jars, rocks (YES ROCKS! The shiny worry rocks from the beach, not the rough ones you find on gravel roads :P I'll show you a pic of that another time - as I unpack!), cards, scrapbook pages, picture frames..... I could go on and on! The only thing is, they have to be hand washed (rubbed, not scrubbed), but for something this cute - WHO CARES! LOL
More goodies to come soon!

Isn't it great! My mother made it for me! Don't you want one! I think she could start a business making them!

As far as I know I didn't case these from anyone! LOL That doesn't mean I didn't see something similar MONTHS ago and unknowingly implemented it here! So here they are! I'm trying to decide which one to do for a swap I have in a couple weeks. ANY SUGGESTIONS as to which one to use are welcome! LOL I like them both!
Both use Pretty in Pink as the base and Mellow Moss, Barely Banana, and Perfect Plum as accent colors.
This one uses the Always stamp set (I LOVE this set! I just got it!). I stamped the heart in versamark, then using my Stampin' Pastels, I tapped my applicator randomly over it with the Mellow Moss. Once I had a few spots of that, I applied the Pretty in Pink pastel! I like the look of the heart :) I then cut the square (originally 2.5"x2.5") in half both ways, mounted the 4 squares on a square (3x3) of Perfect Plum and, using my Mat Pack, pierced down the middle. The sentiment is stamped in Perfect Plum Craft ink and embossed using clear embossing powder. I also added some natural hemp twine to tie it all together!
This one is using the A Beautiful Thing stamp set (another new one I LOVE!) For this one I stamped the flower in versamark and added the Pretty in Pink and Perfect Plum from my pastels again. I mounted each of those on Barely Banana and mounted THOSE on one large square of Perfect Plum. Using my mat pack again, I pierced down the middle both ways again. For the sentiment, I used my markers and colored it Mellow Moss (small words), Perfect Plum (Life), and Pretty in Pink (little flower and swirly). Then I mounted that on Mellow Moss and added it to my card with dimensionals. At the bottom I wrapped a piece of Mellow Moss taffeta ribbon and tied a piece of Whisper White taffeta to it. This one takes more time than the other....

Well, I hope you enjoy!
