I really like the new Swirly Bird stamp set and matching Swirly Scribbles Thinlet dies. I needed a baby boy card for a friend and love how the little boat turned out. the photopolymer stamps make it so easy to line up when you are stamping several pieces. Don't forget, YOU can order from the new catalog tomorrow!

My Shelby's favorite teacher is retiring this year so she wanted a card to give to her. I had made a similar card as a birthday so I just had to change it a little.
I had already made her this as a teacher appreciation gift. I used the Wood Mount stamp boxes and just added some DSP and the rose to the front. This DSP is from the upcoming catalog and is called Pop of Pink.

This card is my newest kit for $5.00 Friday classes. In case you are wondering, the $5.00 Friday classes are not my usual classes where everyone is working on the cards I choose for them to make but instead I have 34 kits available with all the pieces precut so that you can chose which 3 cards you want to make . They are designed so that you can make all three in about an hour. You work on your own, I am usually working on a custom order or prepping for another class but am available to answer any questions that come up. By request of several long distance ladies, I am now offering these as a mailable kit as well. Kits in the Mail will be $10.00 to cover postage but you will also get five cards instead of 3. You will also get directions for making the cards and a substitute list of stamps in case you don't have the ones I used on the card. A link to a photo of the sample cards will also be included. Some of the DSP I use for these kits is retired. Send me an email if you are interested at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you photos of the available kits. thanks for stopping by!

Have you thought about joining Paper Pumpkin? I can't wait to get mine in the mail every month. For May, we got this pretty die cut piece and orange corrugated paper to back it. Not only is Father's Day covered in this kit, but there are 19 other stamps in the set. The kit even includes the ink. The good part is that you can skip a month if you want or even unsubscribe for a while and then start back when you are ready. A subscription to Paper Pumpkin would be great for a card ministry at church or any group that meet regularly to stamp or scrapbook. If you are interested, go to mypaperpumpkin.com and get signed up.

I went on a field trip today with this handsome guy and we had a blast. We went to Castle Rock Park which is awesome park in our area.
And all Kingdoms have to have a Unicorn.
This was my favorite, there are two frightened knights hovering in a tree while Dalton hangs out with the dragon totally unafraid!

We are also adding a gift card with each one.

Today I have another sneak peek from the new catalog. The flowers were cut with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits dies which coordinate with the Swirly Bird stamp set. I used three of the new In Colors...Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, and Sweet Sugarplum. The ribbon will be available in the new In Colors and the DSP is from the Pop of Pink DSP. The Birthday sentiment is from a Hostess set called Time of Year and the Happy is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set. These items will be available for ordering on June 1. Thanks for stopping by!

I have a start on teacher appreciation projects, I showed each of the kids a sample of what I have done in the past for teachers and let them choose what they wanted me to make. Dalton chose these Post it Note holders, they are really quick and easy so I have his done for both teachers and the teacher's aide.
I always use retired papers for these kind of projects.

Today I have a card made of mostly retiring product. The Birthday Blooms stamp set is carrying over in the new catalog but the It's My Party DSP, the Baker's Twine, and the Circle Framelit dies are all retiring. Don't forget the Retiring List will only be available until May 31. I have the new catalog available for FREE to anyone who has ordered from me in the past 6 months. I have had a few people order from me online who checked the "no contact" option and that means I don't know who ordered so I can't send you a catalog. Thanks for stopping by!

I can't believe it has been over a week since I posted anything, but my life has been crazy busy. I took on a custom job of decorating bags for the After Prom event and it was a bit overwhelming. I didn't get the bags until a week before prom and had to do 300 so I put in some long hours. In addition to that there was a lot to be done to get my Shelby ready for the big night.
I couldn't leave Sadie out, she was very excited to be asked to tag along for pictures. I didn't get one of Shelby in the swing but the photographer did and I can't wait to get the CD of all the shots.
