Some non IHP samples


So in between filling lots of orders today (people are realizing the coupon expires soon!) I put these together.

First, I know this isn't really IHP related but what girl doesn't love PTI?? It is ALL PTI, except for the Cuttlebug background and Goldenrod Stickles.

Summmer Sunrise, Dark Chocolate, First Fruits DP, First Fruits set and PTI sheer gold ribbon.

Then next, I picked up my finished home decor pieces, made with SU! Decor Elements. When these things came out I complained and was deadset against them. But, I tried them and eh...they're not so bad. :) They make nice gifts, don't you think?

So here's the story with these. I made two of these - one in yellow and one in red. One for me and one to give away. Tee hee.

Here is how I did it. First, I went to the frame shop and picked out a frame and mat. They made the shadowbox out of the mats for me. Here's what they looked like.


At the same time, they gave me the cut glass to take home so I could lay it on the box, decorate the box and apply the DE to the glass.













I got a steal at Target with buying some leftover Decorative Potpourri Filler. All of the leaves and acorns and pinecones were in there. SCORE!

So, here, the DE are applied and the glass is just resting on the box. I glue dotted the nature stuff in certain spots and then left a pile of it at the bottom loose.





So today I returned to the shop and they put the actual frame on it and put it all together for me. Normally when I photograph framed things I do it without the glass, to reduce the glare, but obviously that can't happen so. So...sorry for the pictures. The glass was reflecting my light tent.


I actually did some IHP crafting today but until I send those cards out (and certain people have received them,) I can't really post them. Sorry!

Hope you like my DE and PTI card!

Thanks for stopping in!
