Wow! It has been a while since I have posted. I have a good reason though! My little man was born five weeks early on October 17th. He was in the hospital for 11 days to get bigger. I have been off work on maternity leave until today. This is my first day back to work and I miss my baby! Here is a picture of him in his santa suit on Christmas Eve.

Someday soon I may have time to get back into my craft room and do some stamping! He is just too cute to put down right now and do that though. :)

CD pin

This is a pin made out of part of a CD. You know those ones you get in the mail from companies and you usually toss them out. Well don't! All you have to do is heat up the CD with a heat gun until it is a little bit soft and cut it into pieces (this is a fourth of a CD). I also rub off the logo or whatever is on the CD. You end up with a clear piece of plastic to work with. Then I used Ranger Alcohol Inks and dabbed them onto the CD. I used Black StazOn ink to stamp the horses. Then I used a Gold Pen to put on the border. Super easy and quick.

Stamps: Bareback
Paper: Gold
Ink: Black StazOn, Ranger Adirondack Ink
Accessories: Gold Pen, CD

Isn't this just amazing? I had a 3D ultrasound on Wednesday night. I am 32 weeks pregnant and she got this awesome shot of my babies face. I just can't wait to meet him!

Tim Holtz

Last Saturday I was lucky enough to get to take one of Tim Holtz classes at the Mall of America. It was awesome. I even got to have my picture taken with Tim after the class. He is so fun! I think it is very nice of Archiver's to have such a great event right at my birthday every year. :)

Tumbled Tile Coaster

Coasters are super easy to make. You can get these unglazed tumbled marble tiles at Home Depot. Be sure to wash them first and let them dry. Then use Staz On or another permant ink to stamp your images. You can color your image with almost anything. For this tile I used Fabrico Markers but I have used Sharpie Markers, Chalk and Classic Ink Pads before. When you are finished spray the tile lightly with Krylon (I use Matte Finish) and let it dry. Be sure not to spray to close to the tile or your ink and color will run. Always use the spray outside. Repeat once more and your coaster is done and ready to use.

Stamps: Frosty
Ink: Black StazOn
Accessories: Fabrico markers, Tile, Krylon Matte Finish
