Owl Magnets

There's still time to play along with the Stampin' Celebration challenge this month!  My mid-monthspiration for you this time around are these adorable little owl clothespin magnets. 

I've been making these little clips and packaging them to sell at a craft bazaar/fundraiser for my daughter's preschool.  I have a variety of different colors, themes, etc but these little owls are one of my favorites. 

I used Mod Podge to adhere the Designer Series Paper to the clothespin, and dimensionals to adhere the owl on top. 

To add the magnet (it's a rare earth magnet, so it's stronger than it looks given its size!) I used Crystal Effects.  Simple and sweet--a great stocking stuffer gift idea. 

You have a few more days to be inspired to create a project!  Link your creation to the Stampin' Celebration so we can see your project. We will choose the "Pick of the Party" at the end of the month. We can't wait to see what Stampin' Celebration inspires you to create!

Paper:  Spice Cake DSP, Early Espresso, More Mustard, Pool Parry, Very Vanilla
Accessories:  Owl Punch, Clear Envelope, Clothes Pins, Mod Podge, dimensionals

Stampin' Celebration #60

November 1st and another Stampin' Celebration challenge!  This is an exciting month since we are also welcoming a new member to the Design Team--Jenny Peterson!  Make sure to stop by her blog and welcome her.  :-)  My card for this month: 

I took my inspiration from the top right photo--wood cabin and colored leaves.  We also made this card at our October Stampers club meeting since it shows off some of the fun new product from the Holiday Catalog

I've been loving the new Core'dinations Cardstock and the fun look you can get.  I used the Early Espresso color and ran it through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  I sanded a little bit along the wood grain to bring out the lighter color that is in the middle of the card stock giving it a really neat look.  If you'd like to read a little more about how I did the leaves, you can see this post here

We'd love to have you play along with us this month at Stampin' Celebration! You have until November 25th to link your creation (a card, 3D item, digital item, scrapbook layout, etc.) to the Stampin' Celebration blog and be in the running for the "Pick of the Party" at the end of the month. We can't wait to see what Stampin' Celebration inspires you to create!
