She's Here!!!!

Introducing Little Miss Riley Veruka Dixon born yesterday at 3:33 pm weighing in at 8 lbs 3 oz and 20 inches long.  I am over the moon in love with this tiny bundle.  Her mommy did great and her daddy did too, I was actually worried he might pass out but he didn't.  Did I mention how much I love her.  She is coming home today so you may not see much stamping here for a few days.  Thanks for stopping by!

SAB Pretty Pocket Card Kit

Today I have a sneak peek from the SAB catalog which becomes available Jan 4, if you didn't get one stop by my shop and pick one up or send me a message and I will get one out to you in the mail.  This is part of a kit that is FREE with any $50.00 order from SU, it has enough supplies to make 8 of these pocket cards in two designs.

These are easy to assemble, they already have tape on them so you just peel and stick the base together and then add the stickers to the front and they have lines to add your message.  The kit also includes some white Bakers Twine which I left off of these and envelopes.

Hugs and Kisses


My kids are still on Christmas break so I am not back to stamping on a regular basis but hopefully after the first of the year I will be able to get more done.   I did manage to get a Valentine card done using the stamp set Sealed with Love and the Love Note framelits.  I loved the color combination of Real Red and Mint Macaron for Christmas so I tried the Mint Macaron with Pink Pirouette and it is even prettier. 

Here is the inside of the card.  Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine Treat

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, we spent Christmas with all our kiddos at home.  That is all I wanted for Christmas, just lots of family time.  We started the day at church, then home to eat lunch and open gifts.  Our oldest son Chad and his wife Katie  are expecting their first baby and she is 39 weeks so all day we kept asking her if she was having any pains. She was a good sport about it but I know she was tired of hearing it.  We all wrote down the date we think she will deliver and whoever gets the closest gets to be the first to hold little Riley. 

As much as I love Christmas and making Christmas cards and treats, I am ready to move on to Valentines.  This little box is a 2,4,6,8 box that I make for a lot of different occasions.  I saw one on Pinterest with the attached lid made by one of the Artisans so I had to give it a try.  Thanks for stopping by!

Lift Me Up

Can you believe it, I am posting two days in a row!  I think this has been the busiest December I have ever had with custom orders.  I thought I was finished and then took another one yesterday.  I did have a little time yesterday to make a card for Shelby's best  friend who lost her Dad last week.  This is a new stamp set from the Occasions catalog called Lift Me Up and has matching framelit dies.  The DSP is called Carried Away. 

Here is the inside.  Thanks for stopping by!

Moon Baby

Today I have a sneak peek of one of the stamp sets in the Occasions catalog called Moon Baby.   This card is for my nephews little baby Colton which I can't wait to see.  The stamp has a star at the end of the string but I wanted to use the new stitched framelits and the largest one in the set wasn't quite big enough so I added a diecut star.  Thanks for stopping by!

Bell Box Template

Since I have had several  emails requesting   dimensions for the little box I posted yesterday, I decided to give them here as well.  Above is a crude cutting pattern.  The paper is cut at 6 1/2 x 5 1/4 and scored on long side at 3/4, 1 1/2, 5, 5 3/4 and the shorter side is scored at 3/4, 2 1/4, 3, and 4 1/2.   My template doesn't show that the part of the flap that tucks in is corner rounded but that makes it slip in better.  hope this helps, if  you have further questions email me at  Thanks for stopping by!

This is For You

I sold more than I anticipated last week so I have been busy this weekend making teacher gifts and have even made a few more Christmas cards.  I made this box to hold some treats I found that are perfect for this pretty Presents and Pinecones DSP.

Here is whats inside, bell shaped Reeses candy.  I also found some bells that are Peppermint/dark chocolate flavored but haven't made a box for them yet.  Thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas

My pastor's grandmother orders something to give to her Sunday School class every year and this is what she picked out this year(also what she gave them last year but  she said since they liked them, it was ok).  She is probably close to or already 90 years old and still drives and teaches Sunday School, I admire her a lot and always look forward to when she comes to my shop.  I hope that when I am that old, I am still as active as she is!  You can find directions for these chap stick holders here Thanks for stopping by!

This is the treat I made for Dalton and Ava to give to their teachers.  It contains a hot chocolate packet, a Hershey Bar, and a small bag of marshmallows.  I used the retired Square Pillow box thinlet die and cut off the top two flaps.  Thanks for stopping by!

A Cup of Cheer

I had an idea to make some hot chocolate holders for my last craft show and had cut out several of these mugs but ran out of time so I thought I would use them to make Christmas cards instead.  I had scraps of this Presents and Pinecones DSP laying on my desk so I used it as well.  Thanks for stopping by!
