Wine Bottle Details

New Year's is coming!  Do you have any plans?  If you are like me, I will be spending a quiet night at home staying warm!  These single digit temperatures can go away any time now.  This morning was 3 degrees!!!  But my dad would always say, it's too cold to snow, so maybe I will keep the cold temps for a little while longer.

Well, if you do have plans and are going to a friend or relative's house, do not forget to bring a bottle of wine or bubbly to share.  From my wine class a few weeks ago, we made a cute decorative holder for wine.  I am sure a bottle of champagne will fit too. Aren't these cute and make a great presentation?

To make the wine bottle holder:  

Cut a piece of black card stock to 11" x 12"

On the 11" side, score at 1-3/4", 3-1/2", 5-1/4", 7", 8-3/4" and 10-1/2" (at top of paper, take a pencil and mark with a dot, the middle of each column)

Turn paper so 12" side is at top and score at 2" and 10"

Turn paper back so 11" side is at top.  You will have 2 horizontal score lines (one at top and one at bottom).  Cut up the 1-3/4", 3-1/2", 5-1/4", 7", 8-3/4" and 10-1/2" to the first score line.  This should create all the flaps that you will adhere together to make Wine Holder Bottom.

Now the top, cut just like you did above.  On each score line to the first horizontal score line you come to.  Next, cut each of those squares into a triangle.  Use the Pencil mark as your center guide. Remember only cut to the horizontal score line.

Once your triangles are created, use the 1/8" hole punch and punch a hole towards the top of each triangle.  This allows you to weave your ribbon through and tie off the neck of the bottle. 

Designer series paper strips are all 1-1/2" x 7-3/4".  You will need 6 strips. 

Embellish how you chose.  Create a tag and hang from the ribbon.  

Wine and Friends... and Stamping!

What a great night with fellow stampers!  I know after a long week, there is nothing better than sharing the company of some great friends, new and old.  Especially when those friends love to stamp and make cards as much as I do. And a glass of wine! Well, we did just that.  


I think there is one or two hiding back there!  This was my Wine & Cheese Night product class.  Class fee covered so many things...  everyone received a Bottle of Wine (first and foremost), the fabulous HALF FULL stamp set, 4 card projects and a wine bottle cover.  Between laughs, chatter and some wine, I was amazed that we got everything done.  

20171219_133749[1]Thank you to Linda Bauwin for not only inspiring some of the project ideas but this is her Million Dollar stamp set she helped to create with the home office creative team at Stampin' Up!.  How cool is that and what an accomplishment.  Be sure to to check out Linda's blog for a lot of ideas using her set, Half Full.  Here is what the entire stamp set looks like.  


Be sure to order this stamp set by January 2, 2018 before it is retired!

Christmas in a Box

I am enjoying a girl's scrapbooking weekend in Lake Chautauqua, NY.  I have been coming here for the last few years, every spring and fall.  We have scrapbookers, card makers, those that sew and some who color Mandala books.  It is your weekend to do what you like, hang with friends, relax and enjoy.  The retreat center over looks the beautiful lake and normally we have the sun shining so we can go for a walk and take in the fresh air.  Not this time though.  It is cold and rainy, with the chance of snow for tomorrow.  I guess that means I can get more Christmas cards done. 

This week was my second product based class.  The girls were super excited to see what I had in store for them.  For the cost of class, they received "Feeling of Christmas" stamp set, Winter Wonder Textured Impressions embossing folder, 6 silver foil snowflakes and 6 gold, 5 yards of Silver and 5 yards of Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon, and 5 Acetate Boxes.

We used the Winter Wonder embossing folder to add the snowflake image on the Acetate Box.  Such a cool effect.  Then I gave them some extra ribbon, a silver snowflake, 2 silver ornaments and a spring of greenery to decorate the box.  I love how they came out!

The class then made three standard size cards with envelopes to go inside the boxes.  These are perfect gifts for a co-workers, neighbors, or if you are on a bowling team or book club.  What a great, inexpensive gift to hand out to someone that might not be expecting anything.
