Techno Stampers Lunchtime Sketch Challenge

This is for Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 356!

I love the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack (137780) from Stampin' Up. There are loads of papers for Masculine cards and just plain neat for any occasion! It is just the perfect size for greeting cards or even scrapbooking. I used Island Indigo for the bow and Meadow Moss. The little Bow punch is just the perfect accent!

Until next time!

Scrapbooking - Vintage

This gorgeous layout was shared with me by my cyber-friend in NC. I had to make a few changes since I didn't have all her ingredients and I did make a few 'artistic' mistakes but you'd never know... LOL

Crumb Cake is the base with Marina Mist mats! A few of my customers had asked for vintage layouts and that's really not my thing so it's hard for me. Hope you like it!

Until next time!

Masculine Card

If you haven't purchased the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack - now's the time. It is the best for making masculine cards.

The card took less than 5 minutes to make! I used the Hello You 137363 Framelits in Garden Green and the sentiment from the Crazy About You (set of 2 - 138859) set.

The possibilities are endless.

Until next time!

Techno Stamper's Lunchtime Challenge

I decided to take this challenge for two reasons. One of my customers wants to make the pop-up gift card holder card and I love Mary Jo's outline for all to follow.

This is a pop-up gift card holders that ties together in the back with a piece of Baker's Twine wrapped around the brads. Inside is a nice surprise gift card. It is standard card size (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) for mailing but a bit bulky so requires extra postage (.21 cents)

I used Big Day (FREE from Sale-a-brations 139112) on the inside and a sentiment from Something to Say (134180). The card itself is from Daffodil Delight using Sweet Taffy Designer Paper (133639) to complete this card. It is accented with 3 Bright Candy Dots! I plan on doing this type card at one of our Stamp Club meetings soon. Thanks Cindy for the idea and inspiration.

Until next time!

Mickey and Minnie!

Mickey and Minnie Coasters!!! Too cute. I just love the vinyl creations using my Silhouette. Too funny, I made Minnie on a coaster I had here and so I ran by Lowe's yesterday to get a matching one to add Mickey. Well Minnie is on a cream colored tile and Mickey is on a white tile. His tile is also a border tile!

A friend of mine on Facebook then suggested to go back to Lowe's and get the same two mismatched tiles and then I would have two sets! I will have to do that. Thanks for stopping by!

We still have loads of snow around but other areas are worse. Our drive still covered but has drive-able ruts! VDOT has cleared most roads for safe travel. NC seems to be getting snow this am.

Be safe and WARM!

Until next time!

Treat Box

My stampin' friend, Betty saw this on Pinterest and we decided to make one. Of course it was in another language and in cm's... so I translated it (well, Google translated it) and I went to work making a prototype and then the final version.

The top flips up for easy filling and then bottom acts as a drawer for easy 'pickins'!

I did make a file for my Silhouette to make this easier to cut and assemble. Thanks, Betty for passing this on! Plans to make one at our April Club meetings will be a great idea! (To get an idea of size, it's approximately 3" square) Think Easter, Juvie, Valentine's, Christmas or any occasion for a small remembrance gift!

Until next time!

Total C.A.S.E...

Yes this is a total CASE from Pootles in the UK! I love the combo of papers and being able to make use of the Adventure Bound Designer Paper. These papers are super great for guy cards! (and girls, too!) and the wooden heart is the perfect embellishment!

Would be a great Father's Day card, masculine birthday or just a Thinking of You card!
