Trying out the new Schtuff!

You know... moving stinks!  But in the same breath, I can say it's like Christmas for me!  I had gotten a few new things prior to the move, while in the moving process, and of course after it's all said and done. So, I have quite a bit to play with and try out.  One of the new "toys" I got was a Bind-it-All.  (This would be in the after-it-was-all-said-and-done category)  This was an item I really wasn't sure if it was a 'must have.' But now that I have it, I love it!!! It's just really fun to create with it!  This is the first item I made and it's for my sister who is getting married in November.  I created this To Do and Weekly checklist that I thought she could use whilst planning and traveling between home (Switzerland) and where the wedding will be held. (The Netherlands)  Nothing fancy, but just something she can chicken scratch in. I purchased the new SU! set of It's a Plan which I stamped, cut to size and filled the inside with.  While I was at CHA this summer, I came across the Amanda Blu (AB) booth showing off their line of self adhesive glass tiles.  They were pretty cool.  Well, I came across those the other day in a $1.99 bin! There is a 7"x7" set inside each package and thought it would be cool to make the entire cover of this book with them.  So easy to use! It would also be really neat to buy various colors and collage them together.  I used Papertrey's set of Out on a Limb for the outside and used ribbons and rhinestones for embellishments.  Again, nothing fancy, but trying out my new stuff!! Thanks for taking a peek!!

Materials used: Zutter acrylic covers, wires, and bind-it-all, AB glass tiles, SU! It's a plan, Tab punch, metal embellishments, Papertrey Ink, ribbon, self-adhesive rhinestones.


Another item I got (finally!) was Nestibilities.  (This falls into the Prior-to-the-move catergory) For this card, I cut out the front with my large nestie and placed a transparency inbetween.  The image was stamped on the inside and then embossed.  I added some ribbon, a sentiment, embellishments and I was done.  Just another quick item.  Thanks for stopping by!!

Materials Used:  Nestibilities, PIP, Basic Grey's Lilly Kate, Dew Drops, EP in Pearl olive green, Bashful Blue ribbon, oval punch, button
