More kisses.

So here is another card using the adorable bugs and kisses set. This is like the first set I really wanted when I first got introduced to Stampin' Up. Its wonderful. This card is fairly plain but I still like it. I used tempting turquoise and old olive cardstock. Then using the stampin' write marker colored the snail choco chip and olive and stamped the ants in black. Finished it off with some chocolate chip ribbon and of course the swiss dots embossing folder. Thank God for the big shot. lol. It so simply adds so much to a card. I mean "back in the day" the green wouldnt have had any texture or dimension at all. How sad is that? Anyways, thanks for popping by!
Have a great day!

Bugs and Kisses

Hello everyone. So here is today's card. I made it a few months ago (dont recall the reson why) and just adore it. It uses Sahara sand, marina mist, and wild wasabi cardstock. I used the twill ribbon, swiss dots embossing folder and of course the bugs and kisses stamp set. I am attending regionals this week and this is going to be the swap card I use. Hopefully other people like it and "want" it.

In other news, One more week until my friend and her family come out to visit from colorado. Havent seen her in about 7yrs so it will be a nice but very short visit im sure. She has two little ones and they have decided they are going to drive out here so most of the vacation will be spend in the car with only a few days actually visiting, but Ill take what I can get. Hopefully we make them like it here sooo much that they will move. ;)

Have a great day!

its been almost a year.....

Yep. thats right. Its been almost a year since my last post, how sad. Nothing new has really happened, just "havent had time". I may not have posted in a long time, but I certainly didnt stop stamping. I actually have learned how to sew a lil....well, im still learning. Ill post some projects over the next couple days.

So, i thought today I would share one of my latest favorite projects. Its nothing difficult and youve seen it before Im sure but I think its cute. Its a mini composition book and matching pen all wrapped up with a topper. I used some retired SU DSP (I dont recall the name but I think you can still get it through my online store on the clearance rack) and of course my fav owl punch. I LOVE his googly eyes. I used the retired set "a lil somthin" on the topper which is made with the SU bigshot top note die.
well thats all for my post today. Ill work on updating this thing over the next week and hopefully get back on track. Thanks for poppin by.

bag scrapbook

Hello Everyone! Here is the project we will be making on the 24th. Its a brag book so to speak. It can hold up to 9 pictures if you wanted it too. We will be using the sweet pea felt flowers which are coming to an end this month. Thats right, this is the last month for the occassions mini so you will want to get your orders in before the end of the month.

This first picture you see is the cover. I kinda messed it up as I decided I wanted to emboss it after I put it together. So I gave it a whirl and missed some and then I did it backwards so the

impression is on the inside. At the class however,
we will do it the right way. lol.

The next picture is what it looks like when you open it up. you can see the cardstock in front of the picutre which allows for some journaling. You could also add some paper and a picture to the outside of the bag and make room for more pictures. Totally up to you. This is how I opted to do it. I think next time Ill try it the other way. So thats the project. Please let me know if you are attending or not. The class fee is $10f and I have to know by the 14th.

Well thats all for now, I have other stuff i have to get done but I will be posting again later.
The weather is amazing! Get out and enjoy it!

So here is the keychain i was telling you about. This is the one side of it. I know not all of you might like my choice of paper but its just to show you the idea. I used our hodgepodge hardware. Whats nice about using that is they cooridnate with our punches so all you have to do is punch out the paper and glue it in. you can get the keychain rings at any craft store and the chain I used came from michaels in the jewelry section. the keychain has 2 sides. You glue the hardware together to make it have a front and a back. You dont have to use just dsp, you can also stamp an image or whatever you want to do. You can make your very own, one of a kind, personalized keychain.
Well I hope you like them. If you would like to learn how to make them just schedule a class with me. We can do it at your house or mine and you can invite whomever you want. Well hope you enjoy your day and find some time to stamp.

Rag Shag Purse

Hello all. Todays post is called a rag shag purse. I wish it was my original idea, but its definately not. I love these things. Got the idea from That woman is amazing. She is so talented it makes me jealous. lol. So Ive been dieing to make one forever. Last night I went to my mils and she helped me. I couldnt have done it without her. I really suck at sewing and all that type of stuff. It wasnt super hard. Ive learned that I need to buy more fabric than I did. I didnt have enough black to put on the inside so I used a pink fabric that I really like, but would have rathered have it be the same colors on the inside. I think the next time I will make it another layer deeper and wider and maybe add the button that she did.
Stop back tomorrow to see the keychain I made. Again, not my original idea... but I still like it. Dont forget this is the last month for SAB. For every $50 you spend you get to pick something for free out of the SAB catalog. Get your orders in. you can call, email me, or shop on my website.
Have a great day!

So, im a little slow today...

Well, after posting the last post, I was puttsin around online and when i was done and closed out the web browser I found the pop up to upload my picture. So I guess in reality it wasnt blogger that was being a pain, it was me being slow. lol. So this is the card for the day. I NEVER make cards like this. I always see other peoples cards that are like this only with a different layout or something, and it always looks amazing. Thought Id step out of my comfort zone and give it a whirl. I used the flower #3 die for the flowers and the corduroy brads for the center. I used the paper thats in the mini-dont remember the name- as well as the lots of dots embossing folder. The border punch is in the SAB catalog for FREE! A free doesnt get much better than that! Remember, this is the last month for SAB.

well, now that I got the picture to upload its time to get working on other stuff. Ive been making invitations, rsvps, and tickets for my friends jack n jill party in may. I have 40 sent and another 25 to stuff, stamp, stamp again, and mail. My goal was yesterday, but that just didnt happen. Hopefully Ill get the rest out today.

Have a great day!
