Marcelyn Monday

Marcelyn Churchill is my friend, stamping team member, fellow BSFer (Bible Study Fellowship) and prolific crafter.  She doesn’t have a blog, so I share some of her creations on most Mondays.

Stampin Up Sale-A-Bration Until March 31, 2018. See card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

Have you chosen what free Sale A Bration items you want to receive?  Every $50 order gets another free item!  Please watch the video below to learn more.

I have more videos about the free items at the very bottom of this post.

I think Marcelyn’s first choice was the Party Pandas.These Pandas are so adorable, as is Marcelyn’s Valentine Panda cards!

The Sweet and Sassy heart framelits helped make quick work of these sweet cards.

The Quilt Builder Framelits are retired, but I love these cute cards made with the Delightful Daisy DSP, which is still current.

This is a shadow box lotion holder.  My name for it…we’ll have to ask Marcelyn when I ask her to show me how to make one. This isn’t half of what Marcelyn got made last week and she is still recovering from a very bad cold.  Please send her an email at marcelynchurchill@msn.com and let her know which card is your favorite.

The videos below showcase some of the Sale-A-Bration items available.  Please watch the short videos and choose your favorites.

Blessings,

Beth 🙂

Keegan had his Ensemble Acting performance on Saturday and he and Nora did awesome!  Unfortunately, the judge didn’t like it as much as we did and they got a 2. They needed a 1 to go on to State competition.  In the scheme of things this isn’t a big deal, but it was a huge deal to 17 year old Keegan.  He’s a senior and will never get to do this competition again.  I reminded him of John 16:33, “In this world you will have trouble. “(Keegan feels really bummed about this) and also Romans 8:39, “Nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God.”  From an eternal perspective, suffering on this earth has an expiration date, but glory is eternal!

 

Valentine Triangle Box

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for January 2018. This month our theme is Valentines!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Beth McCullough @ Stamping Mom or may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

Stampin Up Valentine Triangle Box designed by demo Beth McCullough. Please see more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

You need a 6″ x 8-1/2″ piece of cardstock to make this box.  Recently I made a dozen of these for an event and then realized I had lots of 5″ x 8-1/2″ cardstock leftover.  What should I do with that?  Well, you can cut that in half, making two 5″ x 4-1/4″.  You get two of these and can make a Lots to Love Box a little smaller than the intended size.

As you can see the paper isn’t as long as the die and barely fits width wise.  (You can also see I get a ton of use from my Big Shot from the well used plate.)

You can get both of these cut from the 5″ x 8-1/2″ leftover piece and make the box below.

The Tutti Frutti DSP  is 2-3/4″ x 3-1/4″. The circle punches are 1-3/4″ and 2″.  The heart is from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits dies.  The heart is popped up on dimensional. What’s going inside my box?  I asked Steve what he would want to receive, and he thought Dove Dark Chocolate hearts would be a great thing to put in this box!

Here’s the Lots to Love Box at it’s intended size of 3″ x  4-3/4″.

I had a lot of questions about directions for the Triangle Box, after I posted it last week.  Well, here’s some basic instructions.

I left the back of the box open to put the Lindt Lindor Truffle in the box.  I used a little bit of SNAIL adhesive to attach the back flaps.  I want the recipient to be able to get the candy out and not ruin the box.  The Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon is tied on the top of the red box and gold Love Mini Tinsel Trim on the Melon Mambo box.

The DSP on the front of the Triangle box is 1-1/2″ x 2″.  I used the 1″ and 1-1/4″ circle punches.  The heart is cut from the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  My email is Beth@StampingMom.com

Marcelyn Monday

Today we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the USA. Here’s a famous quote I love from MLK, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Stampin Up Hold on to Hope cards made by Marcelyn Churchill. Please see more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

Marcelyn made these gorgeous cards for our Central Iowa Demo card swap.  She used the Hold on to Hope stamp set from the new Occasions catalog.  I love the crosses cut from Silver Foil. I’m excited to show you all the other cards from the swap later this week!

Do you know the best way to get all your Christmas cards done for 2018? Yep, start today! It’s ironic that while Marcelyn was working on 2018 Christmas cards, my family and I were busy dismantling our 2017 Christmas decorations.  On Saturday we got everything taken down and got the main floor cleaned up and back to normal.  We did have one issue, however. Steve and I couldn’t remember where we had stashed the lamp to make room for the Christmas tree.  Steve checked the basement and upstairs.  I pondered while I was busy cleaning.  Later Steve came in and saw the lamp back in place.  “Where did you find the lamp,” he asked?  Would you believe it was sitting on one of the other end tables in the same room?  Hope we aren’t the only ones who do things like this! 🙂

Today is the last day to sign up for our stamp camp, Saturday January 27.  Total cost for all day is $35.  Total cost for only am or only pm is only $20.Please email me today at  Beth@StampingMom.com

If you have any questions or comments for Marcelyn, she would love to get an email from you. marcelynchurchill@msn.com

Blessings,

Beth 🙂

Keegan performed his Ensemble Acting play for Parent’s Night on Friday. It’s a sad story relating to the 9/11 tragedy.  He performs it again next Saturday.  Love watching Keegan sing and act!  Abby goes back to college tomorrow and I’ve had a heavy heart all day.  I love having my sweet girl at home.  Love you Abigail!
