Vintage Gas Pump- Completed Project

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are having an enjoyable holiday season! I am fortunate to have a little time off from work and I am in NJ at home instead of in San Francisco. I am extremely grateful.
 Back on Black Friday, Kathy Orta-Files, Paper Phenomenon , had a huge sale! I have followed her for years and years, and was really thrilled to be able to purchase a few of the tutorials. I purchased the Vintage Gas Pump tutorial, to create this for my hubby Keith as his last name is Filling. Get it? Filling Station, Gas Pump...(insert cymbal crash here....)

 I purchased the trinket kit from Kathy as well for the findings. I used Tim Holtz's Lost and Found Paper Stash, ( my fav!) and kraft card stock. My distress ink color choice was Vintage Photo. Can you believe after 20 years hubby got me some ink for Christmas? I was so proud of him.... He got me a new Vintage Photo

In the video I talk about a contest, well I was late to the party, submissions had ended by the time I completed this. Kindly ignore the mentions of the contest.

 Here is a video of my completed Vintage Gas Pump:

Here is where you can shop for Kathy's great tutorials and kits and trinkets: Paper Phenomenon Shop

 Thank you, and Happy Holidays!

Tealight Christmas Ornaments

Hello Friends,

I had a day to craft and due to some great tutorials on the Snowman from several YouTube Stampin Up Demonstrators, I ran with it. I have made so far 12 Snowmen, 5 Santas, and 6 Reindeer. Love this project because I had all the supplies!

Video is lengthy, but I had fun. Check out your punches and see what you can come up with. This is an easy to do stocking stuffer for a co worker, teacher , or friend. I have also seen a pin back attached to the tea light and then worn as a pin.
I am back on the road soon, so I am trying to get all my crafting completed.

Thanks for stopping by, see you real soon!
