Homemade Clip-it-up Video

This is a video of how I made my homemade clip-it-up. The wire frames were from two old lampshades that I replaced for new ones ( you can look for at second hand stores or check online for these). The threaded rod, locknuts ( I used 10), and the 2-in-1 Canapy Kit were all purchased from Lowes, where the lamps are located for about $12.00. For the clips : I used 28mm Paper Clips ( from the dollar store) and the Mini Spring Clothpins (I found at a local craft store for $1.19 for 50).

Here is my version of the clip-it-up. I just finished making it today. I still need to cut down the top, but I wanted to wait until I make sure it is the right size. I made the clips with 28mm paper clips and mini spring clothespins. The rod, blank canopy kit and locknuts were purchased from Lowes in the lamp department. I purchased two new lampshades for our bedroom and took the old lampshades apart to use for this project.
I really like having my items to see what I have. I didn't know I had so much until I started pulling things out. Still have more to put on.

Fathers Day Cards

These are three cards that I have been working on for Father's Day for DH from myself and my two DS. This is pic of one of the cards. I saw this one on youtube (KuKu Card) and had to make one. This card was sooo much fun to make.
This next card is the Joy-Fold Card, it was also fun. The last card is a Waterfall Card, the waterfall part is stamped with You're #1 then at the end it says Happy Father's Day. I also saw this one on youtube but changed the size of the card. Not sure if I am done with these last two cards, they may need a little bling. LOL.

Thank You Card

These are the thank you cards that I made for my DS to send out to everyone from his graduation party. I wanted to make a simple card d/t having to make repeats. It was made from regular cardstock. I used the Cuttlebug with the Thanks embossing folder. The Celebration Cart to make the scalloped circle. Stamped with thank you from Inkadinkado. The ink was a Black by ColorBox. Finally the ribbon used was 1/8" yellow by Offray. I left the inside blank so that he can write a special note to each person.

Graduation Cards

These are two graduation cards that I completed today for my son and great niece who are both graduating high school this week. My son was homeschooled for the past nine years. My niece is graduating from Independence High School in Columbus, Ohio. I wish them both good luck as they both look to the future and will be starting college this fall. The papers used were Paper Pizazz - Graduation, The Paper Studio - Caps & Diplomas, and regular card stock. The carts used were Wild Card, Lyrical Letters, Hello Kitty Font, Locker Talk, and Paper Doll Dress Up. I used the crystal Stickles to accent my DN card.
