My First Big Shot Scallop Square Purse!

Ok, so here it is! I love it and it was really easy to make after I decided to sit down and sew it together. I've really got to be in the mood to sew, but after I start I don't want to quit! So I had to go to Joann's and get some more material today!
Here's a close up. These are so easy to make! Can't wait to make more... See ya later.

I'm Very Thankful For My Customers...

Last night was my annual Customer Appreciation Night. I had a great turnout! I was so happy to see you all. We played Bingo and ended up with nine mystery hostesses. How fun is that! Here's what the ladies made. Actually they made their own thank you gift from me. You might think that's bad, but it's better if you make it yourself then I don't have to give you directions. (o:This was the Thank You gift. An altered DVD tin, which I got from a Late Night Stampers bulk buy and I need more!) I had everything cut and they just had to stamp and assemble it.

This is the inside view. On the left hand side are the SU color charts in color families for them to keep track of what they have and on the right is a scratch pad to sketch out designs or take notes.

They also made fun cards. An Easter Card with a punch art bunny! Very fun to make! and actually pretty easy. There are so many cute punch art bunnies out there! This is a combination of some of them.

and another card featuring a flower made with the eyelet border punch and a 1 x 12 piece of DSP. Donna over at DoStampin with Donna has a great video on how to make them. My card is pretty much a case of one of hers. The ladies got to pick the color of flower they wanted then added it to the Creamy Carmel background which I thought went with them all. Great choice Donna! Have a great day everyone!

Lady Bugs

Here's a couple of different versions of a lady bug card we made the other night at Sherri and Christi's workshop. Christi loves lady bugs!

The cards are pretty easy to make and are made using two stamp sets. Pick a Petal and Flight of the Butterfly. Along with some black circles and you've got a lady bug. Of course I got my idea from the lady bugs from several different cards I've seen, so no I'm not too clever. Have a great day everyone!

Can't Get Enough of Pink & Brown

Here's a couple of 3 x 3's that I did for an organized swap over at Stampin' Addicts.

I wanted to make them all using the paper on the left but ran out so had to use some of the other. I just love this stamp set called Vintage Vogue and am so glad it will be around for awhile. And guess what I got in the mail yesterday? more of this Specialty paper so I'm good to go for awhile longer. Whew! Have a good day everyone, I've gotta go to work.
