G is for Ginny

So my daughter and I went birthday shopping in Evansville on Thursday and of course that includes Target and you know what that means.. Dollar Spot finds!  was able to snag 5 wooden jumbo clothespins, 3 green and 2 pink.  So I altered one up for Ginny to tuck in with her other Birthday gifts yesterday.  My baby girl is 28!  Where does the time go!...Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a nice memorial week-end with family and friends.  Please take a moment to remember all those who have served and those who gave their lives so that we might have a nice week-end with our family and friends.  THANK YOU!

Graduation Money or Gift Card Holder

Lot's of graduations going on and I'm so glad I don't have to pay $3.00 for a card! Besides they are more fun to make yourself. Again I'm using the DSP "Celebrations" and the stamp set that's on sale this month "Word Play". Stampers made this card at my monthly get together last week that Jonee hosted.

I saw a wedding card someone had made and they had put two bis hearts inside to hold a gift card and I thought, well why not do a graduation card and add stars to the inside. So I did. Thanks for stopping by and come back soon. :)

National Scrapbooking Month Project #3 The Best Yet!

So here is the last of my projects at the Scrap Camp. I love how it turned out. A scrapbook purse made using Stampin Up's 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" square envelopes. This was a big hit but very time consuming and I had to stand at this table all the time. So warning this would be a great project for a scrap camp on it's own. The DSP I used was Blueberry Crisp, another DSP that was available to use was Sweet and Sour Specialty DSP and boy was it pretty too! I believe I first say this idea on Dawn Olchefske's blog where she used the Brown Square Envelopes and the Scalloped Notes we used to sell to make a purse scrapbook.

Here's an inside shot of it: Papers I used were Not Quite Navy, Pacific Point, Very Vanilla, Whisper White (5 1/2 x 5 1/2" square to attach the envelopes to on the back side" and the Blueberry Crisp DSP - Inks: Not quite Navy, Pacific Point - Stamp Sets: Define Your Life, Note & Detail, For All You Do - Punches: 1 3/4" Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, Boho Blossoms, Itty Bitty Shapes Trio (the flower), Photo Corners - Ribbon: 3/8" Very Vanilla Taffeta, and 3/4" Pacific Point Stripped (retired) - Big Shot: Scallop Circle Die - Circle Scissors Plus, Rhinestones, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Mono Glue, Paper Cuttter with Cutting and Scoring Blade. Non-SU Small magnets tucked under the DSP for a closer.

Inside shot with the pages pulled out of the slots. Thanks for stopping by. Have a good day!

National Scrapbooking Month Project #1

This is one of the pages we did at our Scrapbook Camp last Sunday. Stampers used the Stamp Set "Word Play" which is on sale this month for 30% off. What a great deal! and then to go along with the graduation theme we used the DSP "Celebrations" to coordinate with the Real Red DSP. We did use the "Arrows" punch which sadly is retired. But anyway, thanks for stopping by and have a good day!

Jessi's Graduation Gift

Ok, so Jessi's announcement was just too cute so I had to do something with it. I love how this shadow box turned out and I hope she will too. Jessi holds a special place in my heart because I taught her in Sunday school when she was younger and I've seen her grow into a beautiful young lady who loves the Lord. So proud of you Jessi! ♥ you! Congrats on your HS Graduation.

As you can see I added some of our SU Baja 1" stitched retired ribbon all around the box and tied on top with a bow. Love our new punches! and I used the new 3 part flower punch to accent with some flowers. The Big Shot and Go-go Boots Alphabet die to add her name and the year. (I used an S to make the 2 ) and used the Jewelry tag to added the name of the school. Just a happy little box. :) Thanks for stopping by! Have a good day.

Jessi's Graduation Announcement

OMGosh! is this not the cutest graduation announcement you've ever seen? A good friend of mine sent us an invite to her daughter's graduation and open house. It's like a matchbook card. So cute! Thanks for letting me share it with my online friends, Jennifer. ♥

Sunny Garden Trio

This is my other project for this round of UStamp. Classes, Clubs, and Camps. I decided to do something a demonstrator would offer for a club that meets once a month. The stamp set I used was Bold Blossom.

A 6 x 6 scrapbook page of (my daughter and her husband Matthew.)

Matching card and envy, always have to have that. :)

Next an embossed Top Note purse box with some chocolate and a gift card. Never can go wrong with chocolate my dears. I dry embossed it with the Big Shot and embossing folder then used versa mark and the brayer to go over it , then sprinkled clear embossing powder over it and heat set it. It's really shinny now.

Here's what it looks like open. Thanks for stopping by. See ya!
