I've been playing some more...

I really need to be doing my taxes but playing with my stamps and paper is so much more FUN! This is made using the Sale-A-Bration DSP, Ribbon, and the Polka Dot Punches Stamp Set. I bought the tutorial for this cute project from Becky and you can find her blog in the next post down. Hope everyone has a good day. Now, I guess I'll go clean off my table and get the rest of my taxes done.

Big Shot Purse!!!

Isn't this the cutest thing you ever have seen! I am so excited about this little purse. I found the idea for it on Becky's blog. Check out her amazing blog to see where she got the idea and to see othe great projects she has made and some wonderful tutorials she has for sale on how to make them. I used the new Parsian Breeze DSP for my purse, along with Close to Cocoa and Baja Breeze. It takes 2 Top Note die cutes, 1 of the biggest scallop circle die cut and then I used the new circle cutter to make my other circle for the top. I used a Designer brad to finish it off.
Side view of purse.
The box on the inside is 3 1/4" x 1"x 2 1/2". You make it out of a piece of cardstock 5 1/4" x 6". Score it at 1" on both sides lengthwise and a 1" wide score though the middle width ways. You should be able to figure out were to cut your sides in from there and glue to form a box. If you have a BS give a try. It's really a fun little project to make. I'm going to use some of these for Hostess Gifts. Are you watching Sherri & Christi, because some of these are coming your way!!! Have a good day! If you looked at this post earlier in the day to get measurements, I've changed it for the inside box. It's right now. Sorry about that.

Just Buzzin' By

I think this is one of my favorite sets from the new catty! If you click on the picture and make it bigger you can kinda see the little black flowers I put on the card using the Trio Flower Punch. I also layered 3 black circles one on top of the other to add some depth to the little bee. Doesn't he just make you smile to look at him?

February Stamp-a-Stack

These are the projects I had for the ladies to do. Some of the ideas came from my side-lines and some from SCS. We had a total of 34 stampers. Everyone had a good time stamping.
These are the projects my friend who just happens to be a downline of mine had for everyone to make. Thanks for helping me out, Shannon! I thought we had a very good variety for the stampers to choose from.

Valentine card for my Aunt

Hello, sorry I've been gone for awhile, sometimes you just have to take a step back and that's what I did. I've got lots of cards and ideas to share with you in the next couple of days. But DH says I've got to work on taxes today, so I'll just share this one. It's a valentine I made for my Aunt who happens to be crazy about monkeys! When we were little she made sock monkeys for us and for our kids. I got the idea from SCS of course. I think this DSP is the closest thing I have seen when it comes to looking like the real sock monkey (except I should have made his butt red.) It's made using the Candy Lane DSP. Have a nice day everyone and come back and we'll stamp a little longer.

Sad Day

Hey everyone. I'm not having a very good day today. A very close friend of mine died early this morning. I'm going to miss her very much. She was always full of energy and would be the first person to jump in and help anyone that needed it. I know she is in a better place and doesn't hurt anymore, but I still really miss her.

It's been awhile...

View out my window.
I love living in the country!
Lots of snow!
This card is made using the sets A Happy Heart and the little set Sprinkles. The DSP is Raseberry Tart. Love all the SU DS Papers!!!

This card was super easy and used two SAB sets, Congrats and Polka Dot Punches. I just love the Sweet Always DSP! Don't you?

Hey all, sorry it's been awhile since I've posted. We've had about a foot of snow since I last posted. As you can see by the photos. I've posted a couple of cards we made last night at a workshop I had. I've got one more but I can't get it to look right. The battery in my new camera is already dead!!! and I'm not to happy about it! So I'm going to buy a rechargeable one so it won't happen again. Sorry if the pictures are kinda fuzzy. Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by.
