Wacky Watercooler Anniversary DSP Hop!

Welcome to the first anniversary of the Wacky Watercooler Hop!!
We are excited about celebrating our first year of working
together to bring you lots of creative ideas.
Stampin' Up! is currently running a sale on Designer Series Paper (DSP), so that is our theme for this month!
I'm first in line in our hop order, but you may have 
arrived from Kathe's blog HERE
 Didn't you love her projects!!

My first project features the Confetti Celebration DSP (p 186).
The advantage of using DSP is that you can get crazy with
your punches, creating all kinds of different flowers!
For the flower centers, I wound Thick Baker's Twine (p 207)
around dimensionals, to add texture and softness.
Colors:  Whisper White, Confetti Celebration DSP,
Basic Gray, Strawberry Slush, Bermuda Bay
Sets:  Fabulous Four (p 13),  Chalk Lines (p 114)
 My next project is a good ole Sour Cream container,
made out of a piece of DSP 4x51/4 inches.
Colors:  Whisper White, Sweet Taffy DSP (p 186),
Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight
Other:  Brights Candy Dots (p 208),
Candy Dots Brad Base, 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch (p 220),

 1. Place in landscape orientation and attach the 2
ends together with Sticky Strip.

 2.  Squeeze one end together and adhere.

3.  Squeeze the other ends in the opposite direction.
Fill with candy prior to adhering, or use a brad to
create a temporary closure.

My final project is a decorated photo of lovely Sarah.
Rather than using magnets to attach photos to your 
refrigerator, you can mount them on a piece of DSP
covered (in this case, with Confetti Celebration)
 cardboard or coaster.  I added a magnetic clip to suspend the coaster, but you could just add a magnet to the back.
The sentiment comes from 
Work of Art (p165), punched out with the Label Bracket
punch (p 220).  Finally, I added Rhinestones colored with
Melon Mambo and Crumb Cake Blendabilities.    

Now hop on over to Heidi's blog to see her wonderful projects!

I love your projects, Jackie!! You're so talented!!! Happy Blog Hop anniversary!

Deborah Smart said...

Love the way you showed off the DSP, Jackie! (mine will arrive tomorrow - a little late for our hop!) Thanks for sharing, and happy blog-a-versary! :)

Bev said...

Great ideas, Jackie. I just may give that photo magnet project a try.

Gail said...

Your choice of DSP is perfect for the Anniversary Blog Hop! Love how you displayed the photo on the coaster.

Heidi Weaver said...

Oh Jackie! What a great set of projects you've put together! I love them all but I think my favourite has to be that beautiful decorated coaster/magnet. I love every bit of it: the way you've put it together, the colours, that added frivolous bit of ribbon. So perfect! Thanks for being part of our 1st Anniversary.

I'm jumping up and down clapping my hands. I love these and isn't that DSP awesome. It is one of my favorites. I love all the color.
Very clever using the twine for the center of the flower.

Jackie, you always give me something to thinks about incorporating into my own projects.

Jackie, I love all your projects, but oh, my goodness, baker's twine "buttons"! I'm so in love! I thought I was getting tired of baker's twine, but no, now I need them ALL! I don't know how many more exclamation points I can stand, myself, but truly, this may be my most favorite idea this year.
