It's been a long time...

I know it has been a while since I posted but life just got in the way! I have been a good granny and been sitting with my grandkids some, worked some, and did get to play some.

These are two pages I made using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set that was just perfect for these pages. Jake's school had a Color Run fund raiser and it was amazing! The kids (and teachers) had a blast! Everyone was covered in COLOR!


Then I whipped up this little 3D pumpkin decoration using my Silhouette. I know it is two different oranges but I ran out of paper so I made an 'artistic' decision and finished it anyway!
I really like this pattern and only took about an hour to assemble!

Until next time!

Snowman...

I have been working full time (40 miles away) so I have not stamped in a while but hopefully I will be retired again sometime this week! and I promise to do some stampin' for you guys.


Today I made this snowman tea light. I found the round jar at the $-Tree and glittered the inside and will soon doctor the hat, paint it black and dress it up!

Until next time!

Lighthearted Leaves

I used all Regal Stampin Up Markers to color this image… Love it. I left the sentiment blank so I could use as a birthday, all occasion, hello there or get better wishes.


 (139712 and fits the Leaflets Framelits Dies – 138283)

Until next time!

Accents are essential!

Love coloring using these great new designs from Stampin Up. I used the Lighhearted Leaves set (139712) and the Dove of Peach (139800) for the other card. Using the gold thread to add color to the cards was just the right touch.


They were so quick and easy! I used the Chalk Marker to color various places. You can also use a Gel Pen. I am working on using these designs on Whisper White and use the SU Markers to color various places to add color. How FUN!!! Must have sets!

Until next time!

Vellum Butterflies!

Cleaning went well… Dusted, Vacuumed, mopped, cleaned the bathrooms and even made a card!!! And cut some vinyl… now it is time for dinner soon and REST…




This butterfly card was done using the retired book of vellum. I started this 6 months ago and just found it again so thought I would finish it up so I could say I did accomplish something today! Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Until next time!

No Bones about It (138754) is featured on this card. I used Basic Gray as the base and Cucumber Green for the mat from the InColor Designer Paper collection; accented with 3 Basic Gray Candy Dots! Don’t you just love this set and especially if you have boys you need to make cards for!


There are four dino images with BONES!!! And great sentiments to go along with them! This card was inspired by Mary Brown! I also used the NEW 3-corner Punch! (Available Sept. 1)


Hope you enjoy this card for today! 

Until next time!

New Baby...

As some of you may know we have just had our 8th grandchild - Scarlett Rae Dawson! She was 3 weeks early but a good weight.

Here's my card for today!


                Here’s  a neat card I made using the Brick Embossing folder and the NEW Hearth and Home Framelit (139666). Cajun Craze is the base and frame color and I used Smokey Slate for the Mat and Cajun Craze ink on the embossing folder. I punched a butterfly and some leaves and flowers to accent. The stamp Set in the window is called Happy Scenes (139821)… Can’t wait to order from the new mini; some great products coming September 1.

Have a great day!

Until next time!

Perpetual Calendar

I made this using retired Designer Paper and thick cardboard from the back of one of the 12x12 papers. I printed the months and cut them in 1/2 2 4 1/4. Decorate as desired. The clip on top also acts as the hanger! (double-duty)


Makes a great gift! Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time!

Journal & Ornaments!

Sorry to have been MIA (missing in action) but I have been working full time to help out a dear friend of mine.

I made this journal today from some retired designer paper. The bookmark attached behind the flower so you can always save your place!



I have too been doing a few vinyl ornaments already and hope to make more. They are addictive.

The new mini-Holiday catalog will be out soon and I know you will be filled with great Christmas and Holiday ideas.

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time!

Using three rolls of Mentos wrapped in cardstock then tied together with twine, it makes the pretend TNT for a cute little gift!

Elegant Baker's Box

Here's is an elegant example of the Baker's Box Die 138279- The box is Basic Black with Timeless Elegance Designer Paper 138444. I accented the little box by punching 2 each of the 7/8" and 1 1/4" scallop and snipping them so I could curl them for the 3D effect topped off with a White Perfect Accent colored with a black magic marker! 138416


Will make a great container for some goodies! Oh the ribbon is retired! Enjoy!

Until next time!

Finally...

Am not working full time again so now I will have more time to donate to crafting...

Made this card today, inspired by Mary Fish using Farmer's Market Designer Paper 138448 and one of the Expressions Natural Elements 138395. Blackberry Bliss is the card base and Mossy Meadow is the mat! I love the Farmer's Market paper!


This is such a quick and easy card but well done!

Until next time!

Baker's Box

I know this is not very decorative BUT I wanted to put it out there for you to see. Betty graciously let me use her Banker's Box Thinlit (138279) to see how easy this box was to put together.


It comes with several dies to cut a hole in the front of the box as well as lots of handle options. It even has the words YUM... I am off today and hope to get some things accomplished before working again tomorrow. I hope you will consider getting this really cute thinlit!

By the way it measures 2 3/4 x 2 1/4!

Until next time!

Stationery Box

I saw this on a Blog Hop and had to make one. It holds 4 greeting cards, 4 gift tags and 4 gift enclosure (3 x 3) cards.



There are NO sentiments on the 4 greeting cards which can be added as needed! All contained in this neat box. Would make a great gift item.

Have a great day!

Until next time!

When life gives you lemons...

I found an old piece of plexiglass that was all stained up and yukie! So... I sprayed it with 'frosting' and made this sign.

Will get two holes drilled at the top and hang! Love recycling!

Recycle

I love recycling! Especially in crafting! Here are two things made from old hanging file folders. My work has tons of these we no longer use since we are going digital.



Boxes & Envelopes!


The box is PERFECT for Christmas Ornaments!  You can also use old manila or colored file folders. I used the Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board and the Gift Box Punch Board!

Until next time!
