Quick and Easy Valentine

I used the full set of the Framelits in different papers to form the heart! The inside has the little sizzlits embossed hearts. It was just a quick and easy Valentine.
Until next time!

Purse Notepad

I found this note pad in my stash and used the crop a dile to punch a hole. Then covered it with Poppy Parade and used the new Blossom Builders (125410) from Stampin' Up's new mini-Occasions Catalog for the flowers. I colored the pearl with a permanent marker to match. Makes a neat little quick & easy hostess gift to put in your car or purse when you always need a piece of paper.
Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time!

Bordering on Romance

Bordering on Romance is the stamp set used along with the new Stampin Up Label Framelits! I am not sure I really like the card or not. Turned out very different from what I had in mind. O well I do love the combination of colors; Eggplant Envy, Wisteria & Limeade! I did stamp the small flower on the inside as well!
Until next time!

P S I Love You

This is with the P S I Love You stamp set thru MDS! I put Crystal Effects over the 'Chocolate' and it looks really good and yummy. I used Chocolate Chip Cardstock and the DSP from Chocolate Chip edged using the new Edgelit (embossed and cut). The tiny hearts underneath were from the set of three embossing folders.
Until next time!

I have been busy and not sure if I posted these cards. The top card was inspired by a flower I found in my stash and I added to it and made the faux postage! Kinda cute!
The next card I used Attic Boutique Designer Paper. Boy the new Occasions mini just has too much good stuff! I also used the new Framelits Labels Die. Too cute!
The last card is using the Apothecary Art Stamp Set which is so gorgeous. I also used the new Edgelits along the bottom of the card for accent. The Framelit Label Die was used to cut the main focus stamp after using SU markers to color the image! The pearls on both bottom cards were colored with permanent markers to match the card.
Until next time!

This beautiful card was inspired by one of my favorite and very talented designers, Sage Kimble aka the Mad Stamper. Stop by her blog and browse some of her great designs! She also offers lessons on organization which I highly recommend and lots of video instruction.
I used the new Elementary Elegance stamp set (125122) which YOU can get for FREE during Sale-A-Brations. Loads of potential for this set!
Until next time!

Lace Doily Heart and another recycle

Over at Butternut Sage Donna has created this cute little lacey heart using the new Doily Sizzlit! Hop over and check it out. She has done a video on how to make this lovely heart to add to your Valentine collection.
I also am including the Bowling set I made from recycled Pet Milk containers for my grandson, Jacob. He spends lots of time playing the game and loves it. I think next week we're gonna add stickers to them.
Until next time!

Jacob's 2nd Birthday

On his actual birth date, he went to Koto's for Japanese and a little cake! I guess you can tell by his face that he really enjoyed the cake with his Nana (his other grandma), Mom & Megan. You can say he really dug in! LOL Oh I made the little cake using scallop oval punch and the regular oval punch!
Thanks for stopping by!

Second Birthday

Yep I am a little behind with this one! Jake had his second birthday a few days early at Riverside Park. It was raining that day BUT it stopped right before his party started and turned out to be a great day! He was so excited and lots of Thomas the Train.

Too much fun!

Hooters!!! WOW... just take a look at that face under the WOW label! Hummmm... I ran across these today and just had to scrap them. The owl punch just fit the occasion. This is also a good way to use last year's little calendars that we always have left over! TFL

Mulching with Dad

Mulching with Dad April, 2011. As you can see I have neglected scrapping lately but promise I will catch up (one day soon) Looks like Jake is having fun with all that mulch. Help, maybe not so much!
I paper pieced the digger and I bet they wish they had one to help spread. Bashful Blue is the background with crimped 'dirt' on the bottom.
Until next time!

Just for You

I love the new items in the Occasion mini. I made this card using Eggplant Envy and a piece of Sweet Shop DSP. The stamp set is Tea Shoppe 125547 and the tea bag added just the right touch along with the new Sizzlit Doily Die! What a great card to send! Makes you want to have a 'cup'!

Holiday Memory Book

This is the cutest album provided by Amy Celona at ustamp4fun. She has given us the instructions FREE! My album is a bit different since I did not have the fabric or stamps. I did however use MDS to make the greetings and Christmas Lodge stamps! It is so neat. The good thing is you can use these instructions for any occasion, not just Christmas! Thanks, Amy!
It was such fun to make and her instructions are super! Give it a try!
Until next time!
