I made the following goodies...

Fourth Of July Fire Cracker Tube:

( I made this to use to fill with sparklers as a party favor for
your guest-and then can be saved and used for a decoration gift for them too! )

This tube is made from the inside tube in your wrapping paper! I just chopped it off
and made a belly band to go around!
The tube itself is covored in Red Tissue Paper and has
a red pipe cleaner on top to mimic a fuse.
I used my Circles #2 Die at the bottom Product # 114526 $15.95
( I have used this die over and over again. Don't let me count the ways!!)
The very bottom around the edge of the Largest circle of the die
I wrapped some Very Vanilla coordinating paper punched it out

Product # 118523 ( Wood ) $18.95. Product#120063 ( Clear ) $14.95.

I wanted to make something I could use this Fourth...and it is always about presentation
for me when it comes to surving food! And how fun to have a theme!! I thought it might
be cute to make a simple holder to wrap around your napkins. These were super
fun and easy to whip up. Something you could difenately make enough for all your guest at
each place setting.

One week old.

3 months.

Story: One day after getting my little sweetie dressed, I got up off the floor and put something away in her drawers and as I looked down on the ground I saw her laying there like a little doll. I hurried and grabed my camera and snaped this picture. She was just looking up watching Mommy.

Stampin'Up! Decor Blocks & Big Shot

(Decor Accents Blocks 3"Square) Product # 116829 $ 9.95

I love these!! Unlike some I have bought in the past.
These measure perfectly 3" square which makes cutting to fit the blocks a breeze!

I made these blocks for my very good friend's baby Lincoln. Her Nursery theme was airplanes and her inspiration for her new little guys room was from this quilt and bedding set (In the bottom picture) . There were a couple paper scraps I had to use to match the color of her quilt exactly but everything else is Stampin'Up! Products!!!

I use my Big shot for SO many things!!!
Big shot Die: Alphabet Simple LettersProduct # 115960 $ 89.95

Big Shot: Stars #2 Die Product # 113461 $15.95
