I saw this post on June's blog a while ago, and I have always wanted to CASE it and make it my own. I showed it to one of my customers last night, and she LOVED it and pleaded with me to make it one of the projects for September, especially since we all need to blow the dust off our crimpers. Begging and pleading generally work for me, and I am also one short week away from having to have all my workshop projects planned, so here's what I just threw together:
Recipe (All products from Stampin' Up!):Stamps - Think Happy Thoughts; Paper - Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Kraft, Bella Rose DS paper; Ink - Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red; Other - brads, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, Lg Oval punch, Round Tab punch, Dimensionals, Crimper.
Isn't it Fabboo? Is that a word? This card was soooo easy and quick. Naturally, since I did not have to think it up! Just make sure to put your piece of folded-in-half oval punched card stock into your crimper on an angle, like the bottom one I did. The top one is a good example of what not to do. I could say I did that on purpose, and take credit for staging a How Not To Be Like Me segment, but alas, I did not see that it was crimped poorly until after the screw-up. Okay, it is not a screw-up, but I do think the more angled leaf looks better.
Moving on before I dig that hole any deeper, in case you were wondering how those Rice Krispie Treats turned out, here they are:
The recipe calls for 6 Cups of cereal, and since the Fruity Pebbles were really fruity, I used 4 Cups of Rice Krispies to 2 Cups of the Fruity Pebbles for color. And also, as it turned out, for flavor. They are really fruity, so I am glad I mixed them up with the plain ones.
I have both my Saturday and Sunday markets again this weekend. I need to be at the Saturday market very early, though...there is an annual 5K race in the neighborhood, and they close the streets for it, which means we need to either set up before 7:30 or after 9:30, and we cannot park on the main street, either. I usually opt for early arrival, so I think I'll bring a good book.
After the Saturday market I plan to head down to VA to Angela's Happy Stamper to pick up (ie: buy) the goods she has been saving behind the counter for me. I have some (of all things) more baby stamps, some of the new Basic Grey 6x6 paper packs, a Copic marker, and some cutting blades and mats for my Carl cutter. And I am sure I will stumble upon a few things I did not know I needed. It always happens. Hopefully I will have the energy to play with my new stuff and show it off a little bit tomorrow. Ta!
