Just a little Behind......

Well, I WISH I had a little behind. But I AM really behind and haven't even started on our Christmas cards. We have no family picture (with our newest member, our dog Tessa, included), no holiday newsy smoozy letter typed up and ready to send out, no tree up (it's broken, but that's an entirely DIFFERENT story), but the stockings are hung by the chimney with care in hopes that Dear Old Santa will soon be here!

I do have to share with my readers an amazing little book called Love Letters. I met a dear soul, Rosa Szynski, at one of my craft bazaars. She bought a few cards and told me about the book she was writing. This was a year ago October. Since then, the book has been completed. Rosa's book is all about listening to those inner voices (well, for me, I have many! LOL) but listening to those promptings in our hearts and head that tell us to pen words on paper out to someone. Words of encouragement, self confidence, thankfulness, prayers, and most of all, words straight from our hearts. Rosa came to my Holiday Open House with several other vendors last weekend. She had pre-ordered cards from me to bundle up and go along with her book. I'd forgotten to take pictures but I have her little treasure so took a few of my own.

If you'd like to visit her website go to She's quite amazing and is a dear sweet person! Once you buy her book, if you need cards or stationary to go with it...just give me a holler! :)

Stamp Club this Week!!!

Howdy all!!!

Stamp Club is this week on Thursday. I have plenty of space so let me know if you'd like to attend. For Club Members, this meeting is a Hostess Month meeting and you will need to place your order. The class fee is waved since you are ordering. Others may come and join us for the class. The cost is $8. Let me know if you are interested.

Above is the Diaper Fold Pouch. This name always just makes me laugh. Must be cuz I have boys and can just hear them say "Awwwww, you said diaper!!" This is such a fun packet to make and a pouch of Hot Chocolate fits right in. This would make a great card to give as a gift along with a new mug, coaster, etc. I used an 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 square of Very Vanilla for the card base. I rolled the Take A Sip wheel across portions of the Very Vanilla. The ink I used is Early Espresso and the designer paper is Autumn Spice...all Stampin Up items. If you are interested in making one of these....come to my monthly stamp class this Thursday. The fee is $8 for all 3 items shown here.

This card is the Ghirardelli Pocket Card. I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the card base and Very Vanilla for the inside. I used the stamp set Christ is Born for the poinsettia and the sentiments. The Poinsettia is also cut out and on the front of the paper with Jolly Holiday designer paper. These make fun Secret Santa treats to leave on your co-workers desk, or stuff into a stocking for Christmas.

We will also be making this nugget tin. It holds 10 Hershey nuggets. I stamped on address labels then you peel and stick the label around the nugget. This set is a retired hostess set from last years catalog. I'm such a dork...I thought this was a new set. I found it in my stack of Christmas Stamps still not put together. So, I assumed I had ordered it just for these tins for this class. Then I got to typing up the directions for my Stamp Club ladies and realized that this set was a retried hostess set. Oh, well, an updated stamp set that I would use would be Sparkly and Bright on page 44 of the catalog, or the Jumbo Roller Sparkling on the same page. Serene Snowflakes would also be a great one to use for this.

Stationary Box

This is my first attempt at a Stationary Box. You can find the directions at I'll admit, it as easier than I thought to put together and the video tutorials on SCS really helped. I need to see something before I get it in my head. LOL! Anyway, I made this for a raffle auction fundraiser for a Craft Bazaar that I'm participating in on November 19th and 20th from 5-9 on Friday and 9-3 on Saturday. It will be at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church/School on 191st Street and SR 37 in Noblesville. Hope you can stop by.
This is the box all folded up with everything inside.

Take the lid off and this is what folds out and is inside.

There are 4 of the regular sized cards, 4 of the mini 3x3 cards and 4 Thank You tags.

The part of the box that folds out contains a small address book and a pocket that contains 8 stamps. The little roll at the bottom is for a pen but the only pen I had that fit was bright blue. I think I need a different, more neutral colored pen. Bright blue just doesn't cut it!

This is a more close up view of the cards the box contains.
I will say that I think this turned out great and it was very fun to make...but, boy, did it take a long time to create. Maybe because it was my first just seemed like it took forever and maybe will get easier each time I make them. I would love to make a Christmas box so that may be next.
I used most all Stampin' Up! products. The designer paper is the Specialty paper out of the Mini Catalog....Autumn Spice. This dp is ultra thick and perfect for making a box. It's very sturdy. The stamp sets I used were Day of Gratitude, also out of the mini. And, Just Believe, out of the Big Idea Book and Catalog. Just Believe is located on page 109. I also used More Mustard and Early Espresso cardstock.
If you'd like to order one of these, please let me know. I'm not sure of the pricing did take forever to make! LOL! You can also order any of the Stampin' Up! items by clicking on the link over to the right of this post. The link there will take you to my 'store'.
Thanks for looking at my fun paper stuffs!!!

Just Believe!

I love the Just Believe stamp set out of the big catalog (page 109)....Just Believe. The sentiments remind me of the faith we can choose to have in believing in Jesus. Sometimes we need to take that step and believe to see all that HE has for us. This month is Minister/Pastor Appreciation Month and I made this for our minister and his family. We included a special fun treat for them in the card. I'm sure their kids will enjoy it! ;)

As for the card, I used Baja Breeze cardstock for the base of the card. It is a 5x5 sized card which gives one a little more space to play! I also used Crumb Cake and Soft Suede cardstock for layering and included a strip of the Soft Suede on the inside of the card. The scalloped edger punch from Stampin Up was used as well as Elegant Sairee designer paper that can be found on page 175 of the Big Idea Book and Catalog. I used markers and ink of the same colors to color directly on the floral stamp. I added Wild Wasabi green for to the grass and stems. I also used the 1 3/4 Circle Punch (page 202) as well as the 2 3/8 Scallop Circle Extra Large punch (page 200)

If you are interested in purchasing the items to make this card, let me know by posting a response or by checking out the links to the right. Just click on the Big Idea Book and Catalog and it will take you to my website. You may also purchase this card already made up directly from me. The cost is $3.

Enjoy your day and JUST Believe!

Coasters for Special Events!

Are you looking for a special party or wedding favor to give to people who come to your event? I may be able to help you out. I made these for a friend who plays the harp for wedding, corporate events, etc. She played at our wedding and is exceptional. Her blog is at the end of my blog. She is doing a small bridal show and needed 25 gifts to give to the people who are coming to the event. She ordered these tiles to give to the Brides-To-Be. They will be given in a pretty mesh bag with both our business cards. I think they turned out lovely and would be so excited, if I were a bride, to get one of these as a 'freebie' at an event. I hope all her potential clients will enjoy the coasters.

I also personalized one tile with our monogram and wedding date to use as a sample for customers. I think these would make lovely gifts for a bride. One could include 2 coasters, 2 wine glasses with a bottle of wine and it would make a lovely gift for a Bridal Shower or Engagement party. Coasters such as these would also be great as bridal, anniversary or wedding favors for guests.

If you are interested in tile coasters for your special event, leave your info in the comments section and I'll get back with you. The coasters sell for $2.50 each. 25 or more sell for $2.00 each. 100 or more sell for $1.75 each.

Supplies: Tiles from local home improvement store.
Staz-on Ink
Just Rite Wedding Ensemble Stamp Sets and letters/alphabet
Felt 'buttons' for bottom of coaster corners

One of a Kind!

A friend of mine from church had surgery on her foot and isn't able to wear many of her shoes anymore. She sold me a bunch of pairs for cheap, cheap, then gave me a few others. I really appreciated it so much and wanted to make a special card for her as a Thank You. She used to make cards, too, so I'm sure she will get a kick out of this. As you can see, one pair is obviously a different caliber from the others. The sentiments on the inside of the card says "You R One of a Kind!". I hope she enjoys it as she is one of a kind! Thanks, Priscilla, for all the shoes!

Golf Tile Coaster

A friend of mine from out of state wanted me to make a tile coaster for her boss for Christmas. He's a big golfer and I had no golf stamp sets. So, I asked my wonderful knowledgeable Stampin Up upline, Nicole, if she had any golf stamps. No, she didn't but she always has wonderful ideas. She gave me this one...I used a sea sponge to stamp the greens and browns on the tile for the golf greens. Then used the pennant from the SU set Sock Monkey Accessories to make the flag. I used a straight edge to extend the flag pole down to the ground. I used white Staz-on ink and a pencil eraser to make the golf ball. I see there is a little glare from the flash beside the ball. There is really only 1 ball on the green! I have a set of Sharpie markers that I added some detail with to make the hole and highlight the grass in some areas. I also used my Just Rite stamper set with all the little letters to make the golf words. I had to Google golf terms to make sure I got them right...I no nothing about golf except you try to whack the ball into a hole! Anyway, Thanks, Nicole, for the wonderful idea and I hope my friend scores a 'hole in one' with her golf themed Christmas gift to her boss!

Doggie, Doggie, Where's Your Bone??

I have a dear sweet customer whose doggie was sick a few weeks ago. They were really worried about him and their vet took such good care of him during that time. She wanted me to make up a few Thank You cards to give to the vet and the staff at the office. I took my friend's picture off her Facebook page and printed off the dogs picture to use for the front of the card. The one that was sick is the one on the right, I think. Anyway, I couldn't resist adding a milkbone to the front of the first card. The card is a little top heavy but I love how it turned out. The second card has a rawhide chew attached to the left side of the card.

I love personalizing cards in any way, shape or form! :) And these were especially fun since we have gotten a dog to add to our family too! Her picture is below the cards! :)

Birthday Bash and Bundles for Baby

I made these two cards for a special client of mine. I hope she likes them!!!
This card is for her friend's baby, Asher. I love the whale from Animal Stories and the the little fishy from Something Sweet. I used some generic designer baby paper for the stripped paper. I used the scalloped large circle and scalloped edge punch. The cardstock and ink is Blissful Blue and Marina Mist...two of my favorites.
This is for Asher's mom! She is turing 30. I used an old SU punch and am totally forgetting the name of it. I think my client should tell Asher's mom to watch out.....she will be losing her memory next at the Big O Birthday (40) in a few years. I cut the pieces in half to make the candles and used the scalloped circle punch and cut out flames from the scallops. The sentiments is from a Sale-A-Bration set. Designer paper is the retired Tea Party that I really wish was still current. The solid cardstock is Old Olive and Rose Red.

Bunches of Punches!

My next stamp club/workshop at our home is going to focus on Stampin Up Punches. This sample uses the new Two Step Bird punch (#117191 $16.95) which I simply adore. It's so easy to use and put together. I used Wild Wasabi, Garden Green and Rose Red for the colored cardstock and whisper white for the base of the card. I scored a 1/4 inch line on the Wild Wasabi and lined up the circle punches along that line on the back of the Wild Wasabi main image cardstock. The score, that you can't really see in the photo, adds a little dimension to the card, too. I used the 1 1/4 inch Circle Punch for the circle scalloped edge (#119861 $15.95). I also used the Filigree Designer Brads (#112577 $5.95) for the floral brad inset in the upper right corner of the main image. I used the oval punch (#119855 $15.95) and the small sclloped oval punch (#119856 $16.95) for the sentiments. The stamp sets I used were Elements of Style (Wood #118611 $$27.95 or Clear Mount #120045 $19.95) and With All My Heart (Wood #118134 $17.95 Clear Mound #118623 $13.95)

You can make this card, and 3 others, using the Stampin UP! punches by coming to my next class offerend on Thursday, August 12th, at 7:00. The class fee is $5 for 4 cards making it only $1.25 for each card. Hope you can make it. Please RSVP if you can!! You can purchase this card for $2.50 from The Loft (my 'store' of baskets full of cards that I make in my loft!).
And, as always, thank you for stopping by Hartley Handcrafted at Home!

Pencil Boxes Make Great Teacher Gifts!!!

I'm a teacher by trade and love getting ideas to make teacher gifts for my kids teachers. I love getting little goodies as a teacher, too.....just perks up my day, so know my boys teachers will enjoy these 'beginning of the school year' teacher gifts. I'm not sure I have the measurements down 100%. A friend shared a pencil wrapper idea from her blog then I found on another blog a box for votives and other box for 4 pencils. I wanted a box for 8 pencils so came up with this design. If you want more info, just ask and I can e-mail you the dimensions....maybe I'll have them worked out by then! Ha! Otherwise, you can purchase these boxes with pencils included for $4.00 each. I hope to have a bunch made up prior to the beginning of school and will have them at my craft booths this fall.

To see the other two pencil containers, check out these blogs:

Nichole is Hosting a can YOU!!!

One of my friends', Angela, had a workshop for me a few months ago. This is her second workshop she's had for me (She's the Hostess with the Mostess!). And, now, her friend, Nichole is having a workshop the first part of August. THANKS GIRLS!!!

Below are the sample cards we will be making at Nichole's workshop. Each person who attends will make these 3 cards for FREE. Nichole, being the hostess, just has to open up her home for the fun event and provide a few simple snacks. In return, she will get a free ink pad (while supplies last), a free NEW 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog, and with a qualifying party of $150 she will also get $15 in free Stampin Up items and a free hostess stamp set of her choice. Lots and lots of benefits and freebies right now. I would love it if YOU would consider hosting a Stampin Up workshop in your home, too!

Vacation and Cards!!

This summer is nearly OVER and I can't believe it. My boys start back to school on August 11...wayyyy too early in my opinion. Hubby was in Italy for work earlier this month for 2 weeks, we've had church camps for the boys, vacation in the Smokeys last week and finally home for a few weeks of quiet (hahah, that never happens) before the boys go back to school. I have a few weeks after they begin before my school begins. Summer.....always goes too fast!

Here are a few cards that I made for my club this month. I have 6 wonderful ladies in my club and might have 2 more. We just started this month and had a wonderful time. If anyone wants to stop by for a club meeting, you are free to do so. We meet the 2nd Thursday of each month.
This is a simple Buckle Card. You can find directions here . I used Real Red, Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock. The designer paper is from an old set of Stampin Up paper called Summer Picnic. I made the apple core by using the Round Tab Extra Large punch and coloring in the skin and seeds with my Stampin Write markers. I printed the sentiments off on my computer and the inside says "keeps the doctor away! Please feel better!" I also used the Extra Large 2 3/8 Scalloped Circle punch to make the scalloped circle behind the apple.
This card uses a new Two Step Stampin set called Awash With Flowers. I used So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip cardstock. The tab on the right of the main image was used by punching out one Curly Labels Extra Large punch and adhering half of the punch behind the image. The metal hardware that contains the sentiments is from the Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware set. I also used Chocolate Chip ribbon across the edges of the Pumpkin Pie strip. I used the SU Petals Aplenty embossing folder and ran the Pumpkin Pie strip through my Cuttlebug.
All these supplies can be ordered off my Stampin Up website located to the right. Just click on the Stampin Up catalog. You can also purchase these cards from The Loft. The Apple card is $2.50 and the Flower card with the metal hardware is $3.00 E-mail if you are interested or if there are any stampin needs I can help you with...I'm happy to assist!

New Catalog is HERE!!!!

The new Catalog is going live later today so click the catalog picture over to the right to see all the new fun stamps.

Below are a few samples of cards made from a few of the new stamps.

This card is made from the new Because I Care Hostess stamp set. This is a set that you can earn for free byhosting a workshop in your home! I used two new colors, as well. Crumb cake and Cherry Cobbler. I can already tell that these two colors will be some of my favorites! This is one of the cards we will be making at my July Stampin Workshop. All are invitied!!

This set, Elements of Style, is in the Summer Mini but I'm thrilled to see that it was carried over to the new catalog. Tis is one of the most elegant sets I think Stampin Up has come out with. Truly beautiful. I used Cameo Coral cardstock and Whisper White Craft ink. I made this for a wedding card but it could be used for anything.

Cool Down Summer Cards!!!

It's been either rainy or HOT here in Indiana the last few weeks so I thought I'd demonstrate a few 'cool' cards. These are two that I demonstrated at a workshop in a customers home this past weekend. You can make similar cards if you host a workshop in your home. We typically make 3 cards....all of your guests will make the cards for FREE. Let me know if you are interested in hosting a workshop in your home! They really are fun, easy and relaxing!

I used the Sweet Scoops stamp set out of the SU Summer Mini catalog. This set is so fun and 'cool'!! Will cool off any ones hot summer day if they get a card with cool scoops on it! I used Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise card stock. Originally, I used SU's scalloped border punch but had a few young girls try to punch through 3 layers of card stock and it broke my punch. I'm so sad!! :( Goes with the territory though. So, I used a Martha Stewart punch for the one I made at home to take a picture of after the workshop. The Designer Paper is from an old set that SU had a while back. It's since been retired but I still have some! :)
I was browsing around Splitcoast Stampers this week and found a cute tutorial for these Cup Cards. They are really neat and you can find the tutorial at

I used Happy Thoughts as my sentiments and Green Galore, Cameo Coral and Rose Red card stock.

Father's Day Fun!

Here are a few Father's Day cards I've demonstrated at workshops. The Ice Cream stand card is one we will be making this Thursday. If you wanna come over to get inky.....give me a buzz and come on over. The main idea for this card came from Search her labels for Sweet Scoops.

I printed the sentiments on the computer and used my oval and scalloped punches to punch and mount the words. I used the word window punch for the stripes for the ice cream stand and canopy. I cut a 1 inch strip and scored it in half to mount the canopy to as well as the counter top. This card was super easy and really fun to make. I think a gift card to Dairy Queen would be a blast to put inside as a gift. The stamp set can be found in the Summer Mini catalog. It's the Sweet Scoop set. I used 3 new colors for the cones....Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze and Crumb Cake. The card stock I used is SU's More Mustard and Night of Navy.

You can never go wrong with Lovely As A Tree! I used Garden Green, Black and So Saffron card stock. I stamped the tree with VersaMark and used my chalks and sponge daubers to daub on on the chalk to give the tree color. I used the leaf stamp and versamark to stamp a border down the side of the card. I also used the Tab Punch for the black tab and a silver brad to attach it to the main image.
I hope all our Fathers and Father-like-men in our lives have a wonderful Father's Day this weekend.

Stationary Set

This stationary set is a gift for a sweet young lady from our church who graduated from High School this year. She is going off to college and I hope this will encourage her to write home! ;) The paper is SU's Chocolate Chip and the stamp set is Elements of Style that you can find on pages 11 and 12 in the Summer Mini. I just got this set last week and love, love, love it. It's a very elegant set. The monogram and letters for her name is from the Just Rite monogram stamper. I used SU's Scalloped Punch for the note cards and I believe the Giga scalloped punch for the stationary folder and sheets of stationary.

If you'd like to order the items to make similar items, you can contact me directly or click on my catalogs over to the right of this post. You may also order personalized monogram sets already made for your special person. The box of note cards sell for $20 (set of 8 cards) and the stationary folder w/ 5 sheets of stationary for $10.

Another Mother's Day card.....

I just can't get enough of Watercolor Trio!!! I just love this set. Here is another card I made for a special Mother! It was a simply easy card with a beautiful look. I used Certain Celery, Perfect Plum and Pretty in Pink ink. And, Certain Celery cardstock was used for the scalloped circle punch (SU's scalloped circle punch). The sentiments are from a set from Clear Dollar Stamps. I don't have the name of the set on my case so can't pass that along.
Happy Mother's Day to all you special mother's out there!

To Our Wonderful Mothers!

Happy Mother's Day to our wonderful mothers! I think I have the best mom in the word! If you know her, you will know why I think that! :) Mama, if you are reading this..I love you!!!

Over the last few days I made several Mother's Day cards to send out and to put in my card stash to sell. Here are a few:
If you have not seen the new set in the Summer Mini Catalog called Watercolor Trio..check it out. It's becoming my new favorite floral set. It's on page 16. I used Sage Shadow card stock and the designer paper is some I had in my stash that matched perfectly. I also used Ruby Red to pick up the red color in the designer paper. The sentiments lightly stamped on the DP are from a set that I've had for a while from Clear Dollar Stamps, I believe. I can't find the set name on my case so can't pass that along.
Below are the other details:
Card stock-Sage Shadow, Really Red
Ink-Sage Shadow, Versa Mark
Pastels-for the Poppin' Pastels flower from the set Watercolor Trio,
Punches-SU scalloped edge punch, giga scalloped punches
Primas and pearls from my local craft store.

I love this new preview stamp set that will be in our new Idea Book and Catalog that is coming out this summer. It's called Awash With Flowers. Now, I'll admit, I'm not a big fan of Two-Step Stampin' stamp sets. I don't think I'm coordinated enough or something but I am sort of getting the hang of it with this set after playing around with it for a while and I kind of like it! It's a fun whimsical floral set.


Card stock-Certainly Celery, Lavender Lace and Whisper White

Ink: Certainly Celery, Lavender Lace, Perfect Plum

Ribbon-Certainly Celery, and SU scalloped border punch

You can purchase the items to make these cards by clicking on the catalogs to the right. Or you can purchase them pre-made. Just let me know. They range in price from $2.50-$3.00.

May Brings forth Graduations!

Here are 2 cards I made today. I love personalizing cards and when I get a fun Graduation announcement in the mail that I can cut apart and recycle for a neat Grad card I'm all up for it!!! These turned out a little blurry and I'm not sure why. I took multiple pics of each and this was as good as I could get. I hope our camera is not biting the dust! Ugh!

I would be happy to make your personalized Grad cards if you wish. Just bring me the announcement or notice, picture, or mascot off the school website and we'll be in business! Cards range from $3.00-$4.00.
