Teacher Clipboards

These are a couple of the clipboards I made for the boys teachers this year. (There are 3 more to come!) I went to Archivers and tried to find papers that had the teacher's favorite colors or things I thought might suit them. These two turned out especially cute, I think! The boys signed the back and wrote a little message!
We just love our teachers and are so grateful for all they do!!!!! Thanks for stopping by!

cutest m&m treats!!

Is this not the cutest??!!! I am LOVING it...I already started to make a bunch of these for teachers and a few friends cuz they are just too cute not to share with someone!!! I saw this cute idea on Jenny's blog Stamping Moments. She was kind enough to share her directions for this cute box! {look for Spring Lollipops on her blog} I loved the idea of doing suckers but after I went to the store and couldn't find just the right sucker I decided to buy some m&m's and come home and try this! I just changed the template by punching 3/4 inch circles instead of the little holes for the sucker sticks! Super cute right? You can also see some other cute versions of this on Inking Idaho and Thoughts that Stick. Have a fabulous Friday!!!

Thanksgiving Flashback

Happy Thanksgiving weekend!!! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! We had a fabulous Turkey Day! It was so relaxing...full of family time! It was perfect. We didn't have any visitors and we didn't go anywhere it was just us and we loved it! I thought I would share our Thanksgiving table since it was very crafty. I have been working on it here and there over the last few weeks. I like to keep things simple when it comes to the table so that the clean up is that much easier. I have never been big on "real" plates...cuz it's just more dishes to wash. I always find cute square paper plates and then we pull out the fancy wine glasses so we can have sparkling cider! So...under the flowers is a placemat type thing I made. I got the idea from Mary Jo's blog. It was so easy...you just cut out the large pennant die in different coordinating papers with your Big Shot and tape them together. The confetti circles are just extras from cutting out the pennants. I made some paper pumpkins for the center too. Each person got a pillow box with Andes Mints in them. I punched a big scallop circle from my giga scallop punch to put under the sparkling cider glasses. I used some dsp from last year that I had for the place mats under the plates...the colors just happened to match my Autumn Vine paper. The last thing is the name cards...I posted those awhile ago...I used some Doodlebug Rub-Ons for the names.
Have a wonderful rest of your holiday weekend!

Tropical Treat

How cute are these? I wish so badly that I didn't have to give them away! I just loved how they turned out! This ridiculously cute box is one of the great tutorials that you can purchase from Becky over at Inking Idaho! These 2 boxes were early bird prizes for an activity that was for the women at my church! We are joining together to read the Book of Mormon and I thought it would be darling to put a mini Book of Mormon in here. The girls that won can keep it for themselves to read or give it to a friend with their testimony on the inside!! The dimensions in the tutorial worked perfectly to fit the book!! I added some york peppermint patties, kisses and yummy ghirardelli chocolate on the sides. They were a big hit with the gals! The only complaint was that there weren't more to go around!

what's in it?...
stamps...Tropical Party
ink...chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, rose red, tempting turquoise, so saffron, old olive

welcome vinyl

So I am pretty much copying this one from the Stampin' Up! catalog! {shhh don't tell} I actually would have ordered the one from Stampin' Up! but they didn't have the size I needed and I didn't like one of the phrases on it. What's a girl to do???...well make my own of course! I just chose all different fonts and played with the sizes and thicknesses. I like how it turned out! It looks really cool above this mirror in my entryway. I love the collage of words! You could do this with so many different things, words, rooms, occasions...the possibilities are endless!! If you are interested in some cool word collages for your walls shoot me an email! {fabfullmers@yahoo.com}
thanks for coming by...have a wonderfully vinylicious Monday!!!
chat at ya later!
what's in it?...
vinyl...brown (oracal)...I like to call it chocolate
size...8 1/2 in. x 35 in.
fonts...can't remember all of them {oops}
hours of sleep lost playing with words and getting them in just the right spot...2 or 3 AND lots of numbness in my mouse-clicking hand from being on the computer too long!
what can I say...I am a committed girl!

family vinyl

I have been on the hunt for awhile now for an idea that I just loved for a Fullmer Family vinyl. I finally found a few ideas that I liked and from that I created this...I just adore the way it turned out! I have had the picture frame for a few years now {yes I still need to add a few pics! I got so used to seeing those white spaces I sorta forgot they needed to be filled} and I have wanted the vinyl above to finish off the wall. I love when something turns out even better than you hoped for!!! I had my doubts as I was putting it up as to whether or not I was going to like it! Now I love it so much I feel like all my vinyl needs that 2 tone/layered look!! :) If you are interested in having your own "family vinyl" email me or call me and I will be happy to quote you a price.
chat at ya later!
what 's in it?
vinyl...tan & chocolate (oracal)
fonts...Aquarelle & Lucinda Bright

summer blocks

Nothing too fancy, just some summer blocks that I have been wanting to make. I had some wood laying around {these are 2x4 cut at various sizes} and figured it may as well be something cute in my house instead of ugly in my garage! I love this summery paper from Stampin' Up! It's in the Summer Mini catalog right now. It's called Island Oasis. I sanded the edges and made it look a little worn. I used my silhouette to cut out the vinyl letters. {it's chocolate brown} I added 3 little vinyl flowers with brads in the middle. I think it's going to look great on my shelf. Even if summer is half over!
Thanks for coming by! Don't forget to check the post below for some great stamp sets and ink pads I am selling!
chat at ya later!!
***Would you like a set of these blocks? I will send you the paper, brads and the vinyl all you have to do is provide the blocks and some glue. Email me to place an order...cost is $10.00--that includes shipping!***

Motorcycle Card

I made this card for my dad for Father's Day! He loves Harleys and I couldn't pass up this stamp when I saw it in the mini catalog. I knew it would be perfect for him!

Have a great day! chat at ya later

Vintage Grad

Happy, Happy Friday! Happy Mother's Day weekend to me and to all you ladies out there! I started my "weekend" celebrating already! My hubby came home from work early and we went to lunch and a movie before the kids even got home from school! Then he let me take a nap when we got home! Talk about spoiled!! We saw Iron Man 2....so good! :)
These are graduation announcements that I made for a very sweet girl. I made 50 of them. They took some time...but it was sooo worth it! They turned out darling and I think totally reflect who Alleigh is! The main card has the graduation announcement and info. The small pullout has info for the party after that she is having.I found a really cute stamp set at Archivers with different vintage chandeliers. The little swirl things in pink are from the same set. (I have no idea what it's called or the company) I embossed the image in black & added some pink blink to it to make it even cuter!I used my Silhouette to cut out the 2010 on the front! I {heart} my Silhouette! It does so much!
Have a WONDERFUL weekend!!! Thanks for stopping in!

Subway Art....my version

For Family Night a few weeks ago (actually it's more like a few months ago, who am I kidding?!)...anyway we all sat down a made a list for each one of the kids and came up with words that described that person. I took the lists and made my own version of "Subway Art" for the kids to hang in their rooms. I thought it would be a fun way for me to be creative and play with my vinyl and also a great keepsake for the kids. They will have a fun reminder of all the great things we thought of them in 2010!
I love how Kailee's turned out. I bought 16x20 canvas and painted it black. I used teal and white vinyl. I am a little bit picky so I spent a ton of time ( I won't even admit to how many hours) getting the image just right. I wanted the fonts to also express Kailee...which I think it does! She loves it and I love it! I have started on Austin's...we'll see how long it takes me to get it done....1 down, 3 to go!
**I also learned that vinyl doesn't stick so well to canvas. So after I got it all on there I painted a layer of modge podge over the whole thing!! {{Also I am pretty impressed with myself...I made the books on there all by myself from scratch!!!}}
