Enjoy the Little Things

Sorry my photo isn't very good, we are having a super gloomy day here is southern Illinois.  I really like this daisy punch and stamp set which will be available in the new annual catalog starting June 1. There is even DSP to match as well.  Thanks for stopping by!

Bride to Be

This is the third card we made at this month's bundle class.  I used the retired dress die and added the t-shirt to the top of it to make it look like a blouse and skirt.

I don't know what  it is about tie dyed t-shirts but my kids have always loved making and wearing them.  One my girls was looking through the Occasions catalog and saw the Custom Tee and Tie Died set and told me I had to order it.  It was on my "can live without it list" but that changed so here is what I came up with.  The Groovy is part of  a very old stamp set from 2001 I think but one that I have used a lot for birthday parties so I pulled it out for this card.  On the inside I used another stamp from this set that says "Hippie Birthday.   Love how it turned out.  Thanks for stopping by!

HAPPY Mother's Day

I realized this morning that I only had one Mother's Day card left in my shop so I got busy and made a few of these.  The 'Happy' is a sneak peek from the new annual catalog that goes with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  The die actually cuts out Happy Birthday but you can easily trim away the birthday part and add a different sentiment.  I also used another sneak peek, the Glitter Enamel Dots, on the flowers and the lid of the teapot.  Thanks for stopping by!

Daisy Thank You

I love daisies, my sisters and I used to pick them and tie them together to make necklaces  when we were growing up.  We would be entertained all day making daisy necklaces and just lying in the yard looking up at the sky talking about boys.  My kids think entertainment means going somewhere and spending lots of money....what happened??  Anyway today's card is a sneak peek from the new Annual Catalog, the daisy is made from a punch and the DSP is called Delightful Daisy.  The stamp set and punch will be available as a bundle.  A few months ago I had the privilege of viewing the catalog on line and take a survey about the product offerings which I was delighted to do!  This set was my favorite pick and a close second was the Wood Crate which I hope to have time to make soon.  Thanks for stopping by!

Eastern Palace Sunflower

I couldn't get a very good photo today because it is cloudy and rainy outside.  I made this card using items from the Eastern Palace Suite that will be in the new annual catalog but customers can start ordering it now!  You don't have to wait until the catalog goes live, you can go to my online store and purchase it now, just click on this link.

It includes DSP, card stock, stickers, stamps, dies, ink,  tassels and more based on which option you choose.

To Have and to Hold

Today I have another wedding invitation sample to show you, these are full cards with the invitation part printed on the inside.  I had made some samples from preprinted templates as well but the girl I am working with wanted a more handmade look so I made up several styles for her.  Thanks for stopping by!

S'more Love


This is another item I am making as part of the wedding ensemble I have been sharing.  The bride and groom are having their house built and are adding a fire pit so they want to have s'mores as part of their reception at their new house.  I made this little tag to add to the s'mores kit.  This stamp was in one of the sets that I ordered when I first became a demonstrator almost 9 years ago.  I have used it many, many times and once again it came in handy.  Thanks for stopping by!

Wedding Samples


Happy Monday to you!  Today I have another wedding invitation sample.  I had to hurry and get the samples photographed because the sweet gal that is getting married was coming to pick them up.  I forgot to take one of this one opened up, it is really pretty.  I put a  layer of vellum underneath the die cut image and the wedding info is typed onto a Pink Pirouette layer.    Thanks for stopping by!
