On another note, our lot purchase went through yesterday so the beautiful piece of land where we will build our dream home is actually ours! Hopefully there will be a big hole in our lot next week at this time. I am planning to scrapbook the building process and I am anxious to get it started. I am actually hoping to do it as the house is built instead of waiting till the end. Well, I think I may just head downstairs to do a little stamping before my hubby gets home!

I want to try this stamp using markers to colour each stripe. I think it could make some fun cards. Maybe I will sneak downstairs tomorrow and play a little! I had intended to do some today but we are having the most incredible weather (25 celcius today!) so I took advantage and did some yard work. The rest of the week is supposed to be even warmer so hopefully I can get most of my fall cleanup done. Happy Stampin'!
I am hoping to get to do some stamping tonight but I am way behind on laundry so who knows if I will get a chance. I have a few other cards to show you so maybe I will have time to post again later today. Plus I have pics of the paper shares to post. It never ends...

Tomorrow I hope to post the DVD tin I started today. It's super cute and another project we will likely do at my gift workshop coming in October.

You can't make something for one kid and not the other. So, I asked Parker what kind he wanted. He chose light and dark blue with stars. The little stars are tricky as I had to use the 1/4" punch for the magnets and also the dimensionals. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out and he likes it so that's all that matters. This project will definitely find its way into a stamp camp one day soon! This would be cute using Santa and the reindeer from Deer Friends. Might have to try that tomorrow if I can find some time to stamp. I made a few cards for my upcoming stamp-a-stacks that I will share over the next few days. I am also working on a punch box tin but need a few more things first.
I bought a bunch of CD tins from PaperWorksCo . Wasn't sure what I would do with them. And then I thought of this! The outside is decorated with Chocolate Chip cardstock, designer paper, and the big scallop is cardstock on chipboard (made using the Big Shot). The J is embossed in silver. (It's for my daugher Jenna). For the inside I cut a piece of designer paper and made a grid with ribbon. Cardstock would be simpler but this ribbon just looked so darn cute. Then I stamped kitties and puppies from the All in the Family Accessories stamp set. They are punched out with the 1 inch circle punch. Then I took some old magnets (business card kins..really thin) and used the 1/2" SU punch. I was so happy it punched thru the magent, and easily. Then I used a dimensional on the magent and stuck it onto the 1" circle. The dimensional is important as you want it to be easy to pick the peices off. You need 5 of each game piece. There is 1 more circle (puppy) not shown that is stored on the inside of the tin lid. This is such a simple project but I think kids will like it. It's perfect to keep in the car to keep them busy while you drive, or even in restaurants.

On another note, today is the first day of school here. Parker starts grade 4! I can hardly believe it! Jenna will start grade 1 tomorrow as only half go today, half tomorrow and then the whole class on Thursday. I know Parker will do great but I am nervous for my little Bear as she is such a mommy's girl and cried at playschool and kindergarten. However, I know she will get over it quickly and will love grade 1. And I will have the house all to myself...sigh...
