I am so excited! I finally got The Wizard of Oz, they just re-released it, I looked for it a few months ago and it was no where to be found. I have never seen the movie. I have seen snippets here and there, and I think I read the book when I was younger, and I read Wicked not that long ago, but I have never sat down and watched it from start to finish, and now that I read the Wicked book I want to see it even more. So today I met Ellie and Nancy for lunch and we ran a few errands, luckily we had to go into a craft store cause I needed some white shredded paper for one of the projects for my Big Shot this weekend.
One of the other projects they are doing is this one, and I already had the red shredded paper for it. This pattern is from Splitcoast stampers, but I didn't cut the bottom of my bucket like they said to, I just cut it like they said to do the top, I liked it better and it was even, and well the anal person in me smiled.
I got the idea for the Santa bucket from an awesome stamper, Tammy, I changed mine just subtly, I made my ribbon more like suspenders. I used a couple square punches for the belt buckle.
What do you think? Wouldn't you like to get a little giftie* in this little Santa bucket? *little giftie is not included with class…ha!
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Brushed Silver, Basic Black Textured
Ink: Real Red – it is hard to see, I did direct to paper on the red cardstock
Misc: Pillow Box Die. Stampin' Up! backgrounds Texturz plate 1, Real Red Polka dot grosgrain, black brads, silver 5/16" brads, 3/4" square punch, 1 1/4" square punch, round tab punch, sticky strip
Hopefully everyone will have fun making this little bucket, I will show you another project they are doing tomorrow.

Right now, I am gonna go pop my new movie in. Eric got a Wii yesterday, and my arm is killing me…we played bowling (boring) and tennis (much more fun) unfortunately, they both use my right arm…yowza! But I felt like I had a work out.
Have a super Wednesday and thanks for stopping in!

I love your little Santa bucket! Great job, especially with the suspenders! My dad used to wear those…brought back a sweet memory for me! Have a great day 🙂
Hey Di, where did you get the movie from? I have been looking for it and would love to know where to find it. Thanks!!!
Diana Gibbs says
I just got the movie at Walmart.
Oh gosh, the Wizard of Oz is one of my all-time favorites. I read Wicked, but it wasn't until I saw the broadway show that it totally changed what I see in the movie now. I am so pro-Wicked Witch now! Enjoy the movie.
Diana Gibbs says
Yes, I felt bad for the wicked witch in the OZ movie, after knowing her "back story" I have not seen the play, but hope to someday!
Candice Schwartz says
