Happy Birthday

Good morning!  I don't have anything new to show you because all my stamping stuff is currently packed up waiting to be put into my new stamping space on Friday!!!!  Yea!!!  It is almost ready and I can't wait.  Today I have a card I made some time ago but had forgotten about because someone immediately bought it.  Luckily I had taken a picture of it.  This card is almost an exact CASE of this card.  Hope to have some new stuff to show you starting next week.  Thanks for stopping by!

Sail Away

Good Monday morning!  Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend, we had a jam packed one with lots of family.  My oldest daughter didn't get to come home but she was here last week.  Today is a sneak peek from the Summer Mini (which you can order from in just a few days.  This is a single stamp called Sail Away and I used the Nautical Expedition DSP which is the perfect masculine choice.  The mini also has three colors of Baker's Twine(hopefully the catalog will have even more!).  I made this card for my brother who has a birthday in a few days.  Thanks for stopping by.

Pink Pirouette Medallion

Good morning!  Today's card is cased but now I can't find where I saw it, I have looked for over an hour and still don't where I saw it.  I did change up a few things such as the Medallion on the center piece and maybe the stamp used for the beveled frame.  I used my favorite color combo, Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla.  If you know who I cased this from let me know, thanks for stopping by!

Because I Care

Good morning!  It is a very chilly and wet morning here in Southern Illinois, we had some severe storms pass through last night.  Luckily we only had slight damage to property and kept our power on.  Our swimming pool was damaged,  but so many people are without power and have damage to their homes, ours seems very trivial.  I had to dust this stamp set off for today's card, I haven't used it in a while.  I needed a card for a friend who is going through a tough time right now and just needed to let her know I am praying for her.  I kept the card very simple.  Thanks for stopping by!

Flower Garden

Good morning!  Today I have another sneak peek from the Summer Mini, the Flower Garden embossing folder and the Bakers Twine.  I love this new embossing folder, it's unusual for me to just let the embossed image stand  alone on a card but this one certainly can.  I just added a little color to it,  a seam binding bow, twine, and a sentiment and it was done!  One thing to keep in mind though, the samples in the Summer Mini show the image on the left-hand side when the card is embossed but the image is really on the right.  The samples in the mini were done before the final production of the product was completed.

Curly Cute

Good Monday morning! I have most of my craft room packed, I didn't realize how much I have accumulated over the past few years.   I can't wait to get moved into my new craft room!   I got my Summer Mini preorder in on Friday so I did manage to stamp a few cards.  I really like the new Triple Layer Punch which is what I used on this card.  You can get a lot of different looks by playing around with these punches and layering with other punches such as the circle.  I also used Beyond the Garden DSP from the Summer mini and added Melon Mambo, Pacific Pointe, Daffodil Delight, and Tangerine Tango card stock.  Some of the flowers are raised with dimensionals and some have buttons(SAB).  The sentiment is from the stamp set Curly Cute.  Thanks for stopping by.

Good afternoon!  I got a few minutes to stamp this morning so I made this card for one of Sadie's friends.  Hopefully after next week I will have everything put back together in my new craft room and be able to get back to posting daily again.  I used the stamps from The Nicest Things set, I have had this set a while but this was the first time I have inked it up.  I used Copics to color it and DSP from Pawsetively Prints II.  Thanks for stopping by!

In My Thoughts

Good afternoon!  Busy week ahead but I was able to get a card made this morning.  I used Paisley Petals DSP which will be in the new Idea Book and Catalog but is available now until the end of April as a Sneak Peek.  There is a link on my side bar where you can check  out all the details.  The sentiment I used is from the stamp set Word Play and the flower was cut using the Blossom Party die.

Bunny Family

Good morning!  Today I have the rest of the Bunny family to share with you. I shared Poppa Bunny last time and he was made using the Scallop Circle die and the Fancy Favor die.  Today I have Momma Bunny and Baby Bunny.  Momma was made using the largest scallop on the Scallop Circle #2 die and I made a box to fit her.   Baby Bunny was made using the large Scallop Circle punch and I made a tiny box to fit him. I love how they turned out!

My posts will be sporadic for the next two weeks, my craft room is being moved and renovated, can't wait to show you pictures of my new space.

Bunny Basket

Good evening!  Well, the terrible twos are here for sure, Dalton has been rotten for the past two days.  He is in to everything and my stamping time has been cut way down.  I did manage to stamp for a little while as he napped today.  I made a cute little bunny basket using the Scallop Circle die and the Fancy Favor die.  I used various other dies for the bunny parts.  I made one very similar last year but must of sol it because I didn't find it in my Easter decorations.  The girls like to have a few decorations for their rooms so I will have to find time to make one more of these for sure.  Thanks for stopping by.

Girly Power

Good afternoon!  Hope your weekend is going good, mine has been perfect!  I have another scrap booking project for you today, this one is actually on a 12x12 stretched canvas and I love how it turned out.  I used the scalloped paper from the Nursery Suite Specialty collection.  It is kinda hard to tell from the photograph but it is Baja Breeze and I used Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, and Cherry Cobbler card stock which are the colors I pulled from the crazy quilt in the photograph.  The yo-yo flowers are all made of fabric except for the Cherry Cobbler one.  Click on the photo to see all the bling around the outside, pearls and rhinestones. 

I am using this page for a challenge at the OCC blog, the Spectacular Sunday Challenge blog, and at the CES blog which is featuring a challenge for or about children.  The challenge is to make something "girly" and use flowers, ribbon, and bling.  My ribbon is in the photo in Sadie's this cheating:)!!

Beach Page

Good afternoon! Here is another scrapbook page, I have been scrapping like crazy this week. I used a sketch by Julie Bonner for this one. The shells are a Sizzix die cut and I used the Tasteful Trim to die cut the red layer. You can click on the photo to see it more closely.   It is a lot prettier in real life, the second layer looks like sand. I really don't like my handwriting but I did use it for this page. Thanks for stopping by.
