Today is Wednesday!!

I just did something so exciting I can hardly stand it. Either that or I might throw up!!

I just uploaded my first Stampin' Up! video demonstration....and folks, if you go see it (and I hope you do!) I pray you will be gentle with me.

You see, I am not used to doing demonstrations. Sure, I talk to people all the time like you guys do, but to actually show a demonstration of something and try to remember the names of the things you are demo-ing. It is a bit daunting, especially at first. So when you see the video just remember all that. Above all, even with all my word stumbling and forgetting names of product at first, the overall message of showing another person how to do something is hopefully THERE.

But I will let you guys tell me what you think.

While I find the link, check out the cool little gifts I put together for my granddaughter's kindergarten class. When we were in Long Island, she watched some videos with me and LOVED the idea of bringing in a little gift for her friends so she chose this one. The next time we were at Target she helped choose the pencils from the dollar aisle in Target and I already had the cello bags at home from Stampin' Up! For the sentiment we chose the "Happiness is Coming To Town" from the Hang Your Stocking photopolymer bundle, and the decorations for the label were from Santa's Sleigh - we used the little stocking and the snowflake. For colors, the paper scraps I had were from my scrap bin and I chose the blue and aqua background paper that was available, no idea how old it was!! Whisper White card stock was used for the labels and for embellishments I used the basic rhinestone to decorate one snowflake on each label just for a pop of bling!  Hey, even kindergarten kids love bling!!
The measurements I used were 2" x 4" for the color layer and folded them in half. For the sentiment and decorations I cut the Whisper White at 1 7/8" x 1 7/8" so there was just a tiny bit of the colorful background showing. The colors coordinated with the colors of the pencils that Kiera chose so it looked really cute. Tell me what you think:



So what do you think?? The pencils weren't on sale or anything but they were only a dollar for 10. Not bad. The erasers were bought at the .99 Only Store and while I wasn't thrilled with the selection they worked for what I needed. Had I thought about this project a month ago I would have had a much better selection of stuff but as it was so last minute, that's what I got! lol. I used some twine to bundle them all up for her so she could get them to school safely.

    1. Thanks, Ing. They had some similar stuff I found for older kids and some of the moms/grandmas like to individually wrap those Hershey's Nuggets but I didn't want to give out any candy. :)
