Some more projects to share and time again for blog candy

I was up in Mid-Michigan recently visiting family. My mom and I were bargain shopping, and I found this fun wreath of roses for a super low price -



I bought it, and picked up a fun tassel and metal heart at two other stores for ridiculously low prices. I combined it with LOTS of sparklie Glimmer Mist and a few other odds and ends and it now it is a fun Valentine Wall hanging that looks like this (click on the pic, it will give you a better close up so you can see a bit of the sparkle)-



I have been playing with my Spellbinders dies like crazy lately. I have gotten on a flower making kick, I think it has to do with the fact that it is stinkin' FREEZING outside, and I am ready for spring to arrive. I was fine until we had the big thaw a week or two ago, it was 50 degrees and all the snow melted (about 2 feet worth, wooooo!). Then of course the temps dropped back into the single digits again. Yikes! So, to cheer and warm myself up, I have been making flowers. I have also been playing with boatloads of Glimmer Mist, love that stuff.

Here are some tags I just made for a swap I am in at Scrapbook News and Review (I made extras of course). The theme was metal, so I included lots of coppery accents including copper UTEE, and of course Glimmer Mist (wish you could see the sparkle) -





A close up peek -



Still playing with my Spellbinder dies and Glimmer Mist, here are 2 of my February projects for Zutter which will have tutorials posted on the Bind-It-All Blog, so please watch for them -

A Card -



A Candy Box -







Here is a mini book I made for my boss, her personality is super energetic and fun. She loves bright and fun colors, and leopard print. I combined those things to creat this mini -







I also have some other projects finished for Sketches - Creatively Yours, but can't show them to you yet. It will be a few weeks til I can. They were fun to create though, can't wait to show you.

Sissel was the winner over at the Zutter Zisters mb, I have mailed off her lovely prize -



OK, time for the blog candy post. Since I have been making so many flowers, I thought it would be nice to share. Simply sign up to be a follower, and you are in the drawing. Comment here and you get an extra entry in the drawing. Post about it on your blog and you get an extra two entries in the drawing. If you are already a follower, you are automatically entered for one entry. Sound easy peasy? This contest will run until February 21, that will give me plenty of time to create some more beautiful flowers. There will be two winners selected. You can tell me your preferred colors, and I will do my best to create something gorgeous ~ and there will be two dozen flowers per winner. Alrighty then? Here is a sample pic of what some of your flowers might look like -



You might also get a few of these cute little tags, or somethings similar -



If you like sparklie stuff, you will like my flowers and tags. I am somewhat addicted to Glimmer Mist. :)

Well, off to work on projects again, and look at a few more gardening and seed catalogs. Can't wait for spring.....................

Have a joyful and creative day ~ Pam

Wowza Pam! You've been busy! Fabulous projects! I just adore your flowers. The smaller flowers in that picture of your RAK...do you have the die name or tite? I really like it. Maybe the other one too? Thanks!

Sherry said...

Pam, your projects are gorgeous! I love glimmer mist too - it's so addictive. As are flowers!

I'm a follower and I have posted a link to your blog in my latest post: Here mostly because I want to share your brilliance but also because I covet flowers ;)

Thanks ladies!!! Kayla, both of the flower dies are made by Spellbinders. The smaller flower die is my current fav die - Daisy Heads. It has three flower shapes and two leave shapes and is super versatile. The larger flowers are made with the Blossom Nestabilities die which comes with 6 dies that are progressively larger. I also combine the two together for a completely different flower look. :)

Warmest hugs,
Sandi @ Bearly Sane

Thanks for popping in at P52- I would love to see your take on the challenges!!!!
Wonderful Blog

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
