CRACK ME UP! Yes, I just sat down to type this post and my little man Kaleb decides to walk around the house in my heels.... talk about funny looking - and cute. My husband isnt so fond of it though. Ok back to the post. This is the card we will be making at my downline meeting on April 7th. well, maybe I should say my upline meeting as my upline is the one having it. either way, we have been taking turns coming up with the make n take for the meetings. I love the meetings, they are soo much fun. We talk about all the important business stuff, then we spend the rest of the time stamping! Its really great. You - Yea you reading this- should join our team, now is the perfect time to do so. You get 15% off of the starter kit-which is customizable- you get a free stamp set of your choice, and if you dont have all the money right now, you have the option to make it in 3 payments. Check out the post a couple down for more details.
Back to the card... I used one of the New sets from the occassions mini -available to customers in April- called Great Friend. I LOVE that set. Thats another thing I love about being a demo. You get to preorder stuff before its available to anyone else. I used the Parisian Breeze specialty paper- my other new love. Its textured--which is AWESOME! I added a white scalloped edge paper under my dsp layer. Adhered it all to a Baja matte which is layered on a chocolate chip base. The butterfly has glitter on it, thats why it looks all funny in this picture. Its the way the light is hitting it. It looks better in person.
So, DONT FORGET, sign up to be a demo before the end of SAB and take advantage of all the great deals! If you've ever thought about signing up, NOW is the time to do it!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed the card!

Here is the third project we will be making at my class on the 29th. It is a treat bag using the the top note die for the big shot. I was totally inspired, again, from my upline Angie. She is so very talented and has a TON of great ideas! If you dont have the big shot, you need to get one. I dont know how I lived without this top note die. I use it for EVERYTHING! There are so many different projects you can make with it, is Amazing! So there it is, if you scroll down a few you will be able to see the other two projects I already posted that we will be making. In case you forgot, its March 29th at 2:00 in turners at my apartment. Proceeds will be donated to the Franklin County Relay for Life. Please RSVP asap so I can be sure to have materials ready for everyone. Please bring your own adhesive for those of you planning on attending.
Hope you like it. I will be posting the other two projects either late today or hopefully tomorrow. Thanks for stoppin by!

My Favorite thing about Stampin' UPs stampin write markers is that they are easily washed off of walls and children. Yes, they are FABULOUS for stamping and making your images colorful, and well my kids think they help make my walls not so blah... Thats right. I have been scrubbing my floors and walls getting all the red out. I dozed off on the couch cause I was up half the night with my 2yr old. When I woke up, I saw this lovely face peak from around the stairs. I went up the stairs to find red marker EVERYWHERE! I should have taken pictures for you, but I didnt think about it until I was done cleaning it all. Thankfully the marker comes off with some water, you dont even have to really scrub it if you do it right away. Well thats all for now, if I get a chance later I will post a stamping related project, for now, im going to try not to strangle my boys.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy this beautiful day!

Im not going to have any pictures to post anytime soon. I got a new camera a few months back and it was a used dslr. Well, i dont have a battery charger for it. I kept putting off buying one and now my battery has finally kicked the bucket. I have to order one online so Im hoping to do it today and maybe have it by the end of the week.... Lets hope so! So no pictures today. Thats ok though. We have my beautiful niece Makenna for the weekend so I wasnt going to have time to make anything right now anyways. I will though and when I get my bettery charger Ill have a ton of stuff to post!
It's beautiful outside.... get off my blog and go enjoy it!

Another quilt card. My sil loves this paper and my other quilt card so she thought I should make one with the Rockabilly DSP. I love it! Well... I just Love that paper period. I figured it wouldnt look so good with the butterfly I used in the previous card and I just got the Little somethin hostess set that has this oh so fabulous rockstar stamp and I thought it would fit perfectly! I tried stamping it in red and thought about it in green and black but it just wasnt gonna stick out like I wanted it to. So I decided to emboss it in silver. Imo, it came out Awesome! These cards are so simple and come out so great...i think I just might make a ton of them! lol.
well Im pretty tired this morning so I think Im gonna go chill on the couch and watch mickey mouse clubhouse with kaleb. Thanks for stoppin by! Have a Great Day!

How cute is this paper? I love it! I definately have to get more of it! Since I ordered this paper I have wanted to make a frame out of it. This is what I came up with. I made the owl out of SU punches and I used the petal pizzazz and cheap talk stamp sets to make the flowers and stamp on the pacific point. I used a rub-on from last years sale-a-bration set--yes i still have 2 packs, but I love them. As you can see i also used buttons in the middle of the flowers, they just needed something. They are popped up on dimensionals and I think thats about it. There isnt a picture in it, well because I didnt want to put off posting it until later cause I never would have gotten it done. I really like how it came out. I think I just might make another one...we'll see cause I also want to make one with my parisian breeze and rockabilly dsp. I LOVE those dsps too... I really like almost all of them and hate to use them, but there is no point in buying them if they are just gonna sit there! Ok well this is it for today. Short, Sweet, and to the Point.
Have a great day!

So, for those of you that know me, you know that my craft room was basically a coat closet...well not basically, it was a coat closet. It was very frustrating cause if I wanted to work on something, I had to lug everything out to the living room then put it all back when I as done. I wasted most of the little stamping time I get taking stuff out and cleaning it up. So a couple weeks ago we decided to move Kaleb into a regular bed and put him and Wes in the same room. This opened up a spare room for us. Well its been empty ever since. Scott went away this past weekend to PA and so i decided I was done having an empty room. I turned it into a craft room. Well Im working on it anyways. I still need some shelves and stuff like that, but it is WAAAAAAAAAY better than a closet.
Again, it doesnt look like very much right now, but it will after i get around to gettin some stuff. There will be a chair and tv in there so Scott can at leat be in the same room with me and we can kinda watch tv together at night. That was one of the conditions, he didnt want me to just disappear and never see me so we comprimised. And thats fine, I rather it that way anyways.
This is all just in time for all the new stuff I ordered. I finally got my bigshot! I am soooo excited! I ordered a bunch of new stamps, punches, and all sorts of goodies. I also preordered stuff from the new occassions mini the other day, its the first time I preordered on the first day it started. I now know why I dont do that, I forget tons of stuff that I wanted or order something that in reality I know I probably wont use very often, but oh well. I will be geting more new stuff so Im not complaining. I am however putting my self on an ordering freeze... I have spend so much money the past few weeks on stuff its crazy! So I am banning myself for awhile. I need to start using the stuff I have before I get more!
Well thanks for stopping by! Have a Great day!
