Painting

If you want to learn how to paint, drink wine and just have fun here in Olympia…
Check out letspaintoly.com
There is a picture everyone will start painting.
You can paint it similar to the picture or do your own thing.
Here are some paintings my sister-in-law painted.

Lucky Eagles Casino

Staying In Olympia with my Sister-in-law for several days.
She’s driving us around today.
Went to brunch at the Lucky Eagle Casino.
Since my birthday was in June, I get a free brunch once for the month of June.
Brunch was all you can eat, YUMMY!

20130630-164614.jpg

Here is the lucky salmon stone in front of the casino.

20130630-164837.jpg

In the restroom, on the toilet are seat covers that automatically changes.
Very interesting.

Next stop was at Michaels to look for penny items.
Look on YouTube for penny items found at Michaels.
The items are not priced at a penny or zero cents but when scanned it will price at a penny or zero.
I’ve been watching many YouTube vids. Hope I find some.
First stop is Michaels in Chehalis.
I found many items that were on the vids but was not priced at a penny or less….hmmm
I bought them anyways because they were so cheap.
Go on the website and print out the coupons.

Next stop was at Michaels in Lacey.
Got one penny item.

20130630-171647.jpg
This is a chipboard sticker for a penny.
Bought lots of blue tagged item but didn’t ring up a penny but was under a dollar.
Checking all over the store and way in the back.

From Wednesday, we’ll be staying in Gig Harbor.
There is a Michaels there so I’ll be checking there.
Driving from Olympia to Gig Harbor are 3 more Michaels along the way.
Heard Michaels will honor their competitors coupons.
Go on Hobby Lobby and print out the coupons.
Have a nice evening!

4th of July

Here is a Fourth of July card I made using Rosalie from CC Designs Rubber Stamps.

20130630-075455.jpg

The stars I found on sale at Ben Franklin.

I wanted to use this sticker but I did not want it green.
I wanted something white for red, white and blue.

20130630-075708.jpg

I flipped the sticker over and sprinkled glitter on the sticky part of the sticker.
Then I applied glue to the green part and placed it on the card.
Happy Crafting!

Entering this card in Kitty Bee Designs Red, White and Blue challenge.

Cupcake Birgitta

Sandy stamped up two CC Designs Rubber Stamps and gave them to a few of us.
Here is Cupcake Birgitta that she stamped up.

20130627-185011.jpg

The sentiment, Happy Birthday was from Elizabeth Craft.

20130627-185243.jpg

Used the Curly Q Border from CC Designs Cutter die.

20130627-185409.jpg

I glued down the Curly Q Border but….was a little bit messy so I used the adhesive remover from Cute Stuff.   It acts like an eraser and removes the excess glue.

20130627-185656.jpg

Found the buttons from Ben Franklin’s Red Tag sale. Got containers filled with green, blue, red & pink buttons.   Anyone need buttons?
Thanks for stopping by!!!

June Cricut Meeting

Wilma and Charlene did the projects for this month.

Starting with Wilma.
She made a Sympathy card and Thank You tag.

20130619-183854.jpg
She used the Cricut cartridge Base Camp for the Black Frame and White Background.
The Walk in the Garden cartridge was used for the tulip.
Wilma gave us two options for the inside of the card
–use a Cheery Lynn die cut design-With Sympathy
–use a stamp sentiment

20130619-184455.jpg
Sentiment for the tag was from Die-Versions.

20130619-184652.jpg

Next is Charlene, she made an Owl card using Create-A-Critter cartridge.

20130619-185126.jpg
She showed us how she used the Die-Version die cut sentiment Congratulations on her card.

20130619-185324.jpg
Congratulations is too wide for the card. Charlene snipped Congrat and left the “tail”. She then cut off the s also leaving the “tail” before the s then you join Congrat and the s.

Coffee Emma

I’ve been sick since the last day of school.
Lots of coughing and running nose.
But I’m getting better and hope to go out this week.

Made this card thinking of my weekly coffee drinking with my BFF Carol.
Haven’t had my coffee at our regular hangout for 2 weeks.

Used CC Designs Cocoa Emma and the cozy chair is also a CC Design stamp.

Can’t believe one of the blue embellishment moved when I took the picture…started to bug me so I fixed it and re-took the picture.

Okay now I’m satisfied.
Thanks for stopping by….is it coffee time?
