School starts this Monday!

This summer is going by so quickly! Having all four of my kids home on summer break is great, but I really like it when school starts again and we get back into our routine. One of the things I am looking forward to getting back at is this blog! There are lots of great specials going on with The Angel Company right now. I have listed most of them in the scrolling text box at the top right-hand side of this page.

For those of you who haven't seen TAC's new Fall/Winter '08 Inspiration Book & Catalogue--here's the cover. That cute little cowboy is the son of one of my fellow angels. This new catty is filled with new stamp sets, paper collections, punches, and other great accessories. I've already received some of them and I will be showing them off on some new projects here soon.

If you would like to receive a copy, the cost is $4.95. Contact me and I will get one out to you right away!

The Crop-A-Dile II/Big Bite has arrived!

Have you heard about the Big Bite? It is the second generation of the Crop-A-Dile. Not only will it set your eyelets, snaps, and grommets easily and quietly--it has a 6 inch reach! I think the best thing about it though is that this one is hands-free. It sits on your table, leaving you to line up your hole or eyelet using both hands. This bad boy will go through everything from cardstock to chipboard to thin metal.

The Big Bite retails for $39.99 and is a great item to get for half-price with an order or FUNshop over $100. TAC also carries the Big Bite case, which comes with 100 grommets and sells for $12.99.

Prego Card

We made this card at a class I did a few weeks ago. I think it will be a fun card to give to the next person that I find out is pregnant. This card has NO layers, but the cut-0ut on the front makes it fun.
Supplies used:
How Swell R-2025
Spring Dream T-2688
Circle Sampler T-2691
Ordinary Greetings T-2881
Palette inks: Giverny Green, Claret
Kaleidacolor: Spectrum
1 3/8" circle punch
Gelly Roll clear glitter pen
white cardstock
Stamp images on front of card. Punch circle and stamp "Oh Baby!" on the inside layer. I used the clear glitter pen on the butterfly and the inside of the flower on the lady's hat--this pen is great for adding just a touch of glitter here and there without any mess! I made what I call a No Bow, on the top of the card by punching a hole about 1" in from each end along the crease. Then take 16" of ribbon and insert each end from the top to the inside of the card, cross and come back up through the holes, pull snug, and trim.

Stamping on Onesies

I have been interested in stamping on onesies for a long time, but put off trying because I thought it would be difficult to get good results. Finally, I tried it and I am very happy with the results. This is a great idea for a cute, quick gift for a new baby. So easy to personalize with the baby's name. It will be one of the projects that we will do on Friday, March 14 at my Baby on Board! Class @ 7pm.

Supplies used:

white onesie
Wild for You stamp set T-2727
Toodle-Bet stamp set T-2740
TAC Palette inks: Chartreuse and Prussian Blue


I would suggest stamping a sample design on paper (trace outline of onesie) before you do it on the fabric. Slip a piece of cardstock inside the onesie so that the ink does not soak through to the back. Ink up your stamp well and be careful not to rock it as you are applying pressure. After I was finished with all of the stamping, I used a hair dryer for a minute to heat set the ink. I think a heat tool might get a little too hot for the fabric.
