I just wanted to let you know I will no longer be posting here.  My husband and I have started a new combined website called Eclectic Fellows.  We will be posting about many things we love to do: home improvement projects, gardening escapades, technology obsessions, and OF COURSE my Stampin' Up! crafting!

We love to see the steps other people take when they're trying to complete a project so you'll see our successes and our failures and hopefully you'll learn a few things and have a few laughs along the way.

I've already published 3 Stampin' Up! posts there and my husband has posted about his new Apple Watch so meet us over at Eclectic Fellows!

...Wink of Stella, that is!


I'm super excited to show you this project today.  You know, as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I try to stick with Stampin' Up! products in my crafting but a year or so ago I saw a few card makers using this amazing glitter brush pen called Wink of Stella.  Well, after seeing it used a few times, I broke down and bought one.  I've been loving it ever since!

Then when the Occasions Catalog came out this year, and I saw that SU! now carries the Wink of Stella brush pens, I couldn't contain my excitement and I've been using it on all sorts of projects and have now ordered a second one! They come in Clear and Gold.  Woot!

So let me show you my favorite project so far using the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush:

Please, please, please look at the full-sized image if you possibly can.  I haven't seen a camera yet that can capture the magnificence of the amazing glitter effect the Wink of Stella gives to projects.  But trust me, it's AMAZING.  Even better? No stray glitter on your pets, under your eye, on your husband's get the idea.  :D

Here's a full view of the stinkin' cute 3x3 card I made.  And again, for the love of all things crafty, look at this photo as big as you can to see the glimmer. You won't regret it.

Those Honeycomb embellishments are adorable, too are they not?  And they coordinate perfectly with the Sale A Bration stamp set, Honeycomb Happiness. If you love this stamp set, (and how could you not?), you can earn it for FREE during Sale A Bration with a $50 order.  Who doesn't love a free gift when they spend money?

A lot has happened since I last popped in here.  My dad lived with us for a month then went back home because my nephew moved in to help him.  So far it's going pretty well.  I think my dad is realizing he can help himself more than he thought and although he still misses my mom terribly, I think he feels a little empowered.  I keep telling him I think he's strong.  Someday he'll believe me. :)

Things are feeling a little more back to normal except when the phone rings early in the morning and I think it's my mom calling to say hi. Ahh, I'm sure it's going to take awhile for me to get used to her not being on the other end.

Life keeps going though, and it comforts me that she is pain free and helping others on the other side.

Anyway, back to the purpose of my blog:  crafting!

Do you want me to tell you what I think is the BEST kit in the new Stampin' Up! Occasions 2016 catalog?

It's this!

Meet the Enjoy the Little Things Project Kit!  It's an adorable home decor project kit that has 13 interchangeable display pieces that you can use all year long and for many years to come!

It was fun and easy to create each little masterpiece.  Some took a little longer than others, but they were all straight forward with the included instructions. Let me show you all the display pieces.

I'm so excited to display this on my mantle and change out the pages each month!  There is a coordinating stamp set, Enjoy the Little Things, you can purchase separately and I highly recommend it to complete this kit.  If you bought the kit, the stamp set, and the Fine Tip Glue Pen (which I also HIGHLY recommend.  Notice in some photos, how I didn't and my glue squished out the sides?), you would be at the qualifying mark to earn a FREE Sale A Bration item!

Thank you for sticking with me and please choose me, Rebecca Fellows, as your Demonstrator of choice when it comes time to ask any crafting questions or to place a Stampin' Up! order!

I have been gone awhile from my blog.  I haven't been in my craft room for a few weeks now.  I think I've mentioned my mom's terminal cancer throughout her body.  I have been spending a lot of time over at her house helping her and my dad the last while.

Fortunately for her, but sadly for her family, she passed away on November 4th.  It has been so weird not having her call, something she did practically daily, even if I had just left their house.  She was large as life and you always knew when she was around.  She was my dad's caregiver.  Now, I am his caregiver.  We moved him into our house this week.  Such a huge adjustment for all of us.  It's been really hard but I have hope it'll get better.  He misses his wife and home so much.

I am anxious to get back into my craft room for some 'me' time.  I can tell I will be needing that more on a regular basis to give me respite from caregiving.

But until then, I'll share with you a photo of our last Stampin' Up! girls' night craft.  We chose World Card Making Day to make, not cards, but the Witching Decor Project Kit.  This was about a month before my mom passed away and her hands didn't want to cooperate, but she did as much as she could on her own.  My mom and I did a lot of Stampin' Up! crafts over the years, and I will definitely miss crafting with her, among other things.

She loved to support me and my business.  She would order my Christmas and birthday gifts (all Stampin' Up! wish list items) from me to support me.  My birthday gift arrived on my porch the day after she passed away.  That was a bitter sweet package to open.

I'll be back very soon posting more fun projects so stay tuned.

Thanks for joining me at The Table today.

I'm back again with another seasonal project to share.

Someone needs to tell Mother Nature that it's mid-October!  Where I live, it's usually chilly by now and my trees have colorful leaves that are starting to fall.  But as I sit here typing this post, all my windows are open and it feels like late Spring-early Summer.  Only two of my trees are following the calendar.  It's kind of hard to start feeling all cozy and sweaters with a warm breeze blowing in so I decided to make a new Autumn craft to help get me in the spirit of one of my favorite seasons.

Before I share photos, Let me just give you a little background on this craft.  I have a simple frame that I have on my gallery wall in my living room.  I found the frame at a thrift store and backed it in a vintage-old-book-paper-type of DSP that Stampin' Up! used to carry.

I use that frame to house different little banners I have made to display throughout the year.  Today I decided to make a new Autumn banner to hang there.

Here's how I made it.  I took some ivory tags that I've had in my stash for way too long and stamped them with the Hardwood background stamp in Tip Top Taupe.  

Next, the leaves.  I was fortunate enough to get my hands on the Witching Decor Project Kit.  My daughter, daughter-in-law, mom and I had SO much fun putting it together on World Card Making Day! You'll notice there's no link to it.  That's because, sadly, they ran out quickly and won't be getting any more. HOWEVER, don't fret!  You can still make your own gorgeous leaves with the Vintage Leaves Bundle.  Anyway, there were so many leaves left over from the kit that I just grabbed 6 to use for this project.  I added some texture to each leaf by stamping them with the design images from the I Think You're Great stamp set and heat embossing them with Versamark and clear embossing powder.  Then I sponged them in coordinating colors (Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon) and crumpled them up a bit.

After that, I used my Tombow Mono-Multi glue to adhere them to the tags.  

Because I was still trying to be thrifty and quick, I used some gold chipboard letters I already had in my supplies to spell out Autumn, adhering them also with my Tombow glue.

Now, just because I thought the project could do with a little more color, I pulled out the faceted sequins from the Brights Sequin assortment to accent each tag.

Here's a closeup of the embossed texture and the Old Olive sequin.  LOVE!

 Last, but not least, I used my Gold Metallic Baker's Twine to string all the tags together. And here it is in it's place of honor.

If it doesn't feel Autumn-ish where you live, pull supplies from your stash to make a cute project to bring the season in!

I love Halloween.  I love decorating my home with spooky finds, I love taking a drive with Superman around our town to see how others decorate their front yards, and I love watching Hocus Pocus every Halloween night while eating donuts and sipping apple cider.

Last week was Stamp Club and my ladies loved our project:

I used the spider web image from the Witches' Night Stamp Set to clear emboss a spooky element on to the sentiment die cut.  I think it turned out so good! That was the only stamping on this project. To make the sentiment stand out, I mounted it on a vellum banner that was cut with the thinlits die included in the set.

Here's one more look.  To add one extra pop of color we punched stars out of the Rich Razzleberry card stock and adhered them to the ends of some fabulous Metallic Gold Baker's Twine.  Then, because every treat bag needs a treat, we stuck in a yummy peanut butter pumpkin and we have something fun and festive to give away!

The best part of the night for me was when most of my ladies said to me "Stop creating such cute projects for us to make!" They had all come with their pre-planned lists of what they were going to buy then changed their minds because they HAD to order all the supplies we used so they could make more Halloween treat bags at home!  A job well done, I say. ;)

I hope I've inspired you to make some fun Halloween treats to give away this year.
