**Giveaway Closed** Popcorn, Pj's, and Projects Ustream Recap!

Happy Wednesday!

Whew! Alex and I had so much fun last night at our Popcorn, PJ's and Projects Ustream! Thanks so much for everyone that attended! We ended up broadcasting for an hour longer then we had planned, a total of 4 hours, so thanks to everyone to hung out with us for that extra hour! If you missed it, you are in luck because we recorded it! Here's the link. :)

As we promised, below are pictures (in order) of all the projects that we made and all the sponsor links and blog info.

First up was Alex's decorative votive holder.
Pretty no?
Alex designed this votive candle holder using PSA Essential products! If you are interested in purchasing PSA they have an exclusive offer for our viewers! Isn't that AWESOME!  Go to...2 PREPPY GIRLS.com and received 10% OFF all PSA Essential Products. Just enter the code: CRAFTERS at checkout. The offer expires midnight 2/28.

Next up was the rolled roses...
I found the cut file for these super cute and easy flowers on Shelly's blog. She offers the cut file for purchase for a $1.00. You will need to have either, Make-the-Cut or Sure Cuts A Lot to cut them out. 

We had some technical difficulties, getting the roses together, during the Ustream. They are super easy to make... once you make a few of them. Alex and I are planning to make another quick video showing how to make them. We will have it posted by the end of the day.
Next up were these super cute favor boxes... 
Unfortunately, I cannot claim this super cute project as my own idea. I found it on Tamara's super cute blog.

She  has a tutorial showing how to make them and she even gives you the cut file, of the box, for free! WooHoo! Makes the box that much cuter huh?

This one is for St. Patrick's Day!
I put 2 small "fun" sized candy bars in each box. I also used Peachy Keen stamps for the bunny and leprechaun's faces. I used the PK-450 Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment 

for the bunny's face and the PK-470 Happy New Year Face Assortment for the leprechaun's face. Both the bunny and the leprechaun were cut from the Simply Charmed cart at 4".

Thanks so much to Kathy and Angelica at Peachy Keen Stamps for sponsoring us and donating two assortment sets! Love you girls! :)

Next up was Alex's "Transformer" Stationary box...
 It opens up to this!
Can you believe it? I know! So cool right?
This Terrific Stationary Box, which Alex dubbed  "the transformer stationary box"  was originally designed by Jackie Topa @ Split Coasters Stampers. It looks complicated by it really isn't.  I just had to share it with you! My version came together in about 30 minutes, however I was LAUGHING so hard at the chatters on the Ustream, it took a little longer. You might want to check out her awesome and super detailed tutorial and video!
Check it out HERE!
Last but certainty not least... I made my super fantastic co-host a gift...
It's a personalized etched casserole dish. I purchased the dish at Wal-mart for $7 and used some vinyl, my Gypsy, Cricut, and some etching cream. I put her last name on one side and chickens on the other! It came out so cute and Alex loves it. Well... at least that is what she said. :)

I want to thank Super Joy at joyslife.com for sponsoring us and donating a Vinylology DVD

Cricut* Vinylology DVD

In this 2 Disc DVD, you’ll enjoy over 3 hours of projects and instruction about using vinyl with your Cricut. I’ll teach you techniques for glass etching on flat and curved surfaces, reusing vinyl, layering vinyl, adding vinyl to your walls, windows, cars, t-shirts and more! We’ll use vinyl to create unique magnets, tiles, frosted glass block, monogrammed glasses, reusable designs, chalkboards and even more. You’ll also learn about different kinds of vinyl, transfer tape and how to use both wet and dry vinyl application. 15 different Cricut cartridges are used to create a variety of projects that are designed to teach you techniques that you can use to create these projects and more!

  Thanks again Super Joy! :)
