Cherished Wrap

Cherished Wrap - as in wrapping paper - ideal when you don't have the appropriate wrapping paper . I had a bit left over from last Christmas... and I'm so glad! I wanted the gift to match the card I made her (shown in a previous post). I'm loving this new set from Stampin' Up!

Baroque Motifs, wrapping paper, purely pomegranate, gold encore

Snappy Birthday

This little lady is from the summer mini catalog - Crab & Company. It was a 'he' lookin' crab... but a few eyelashes and some makeup made 'her' look adorable!
So if you have some birthdays to celebrate... he or she... this fun lovin' crab can help you celebrate - in a snap!

Howdy Baby Jacob!

Baby Jacob was adopted into a horse-lovin' family... so this little cowpoke will look great in his stable (I mean bedroom)!

Decorating tins is easy and fun! Your best adhesive for gravity defying projects is sticky strip. Glue dots and dimensionals work well for adding additional elements to a tin - like the ribbon and twine for a lasso.

There are so many great ways to use these once some paper has been glued on. This tin is holding 8 photo dividers for the first year until Mommy has time to scrapbook them (which amazingly I think she is caught up so far!!!)... and it also holds a plaid shirt and denim shorts.

Can you think of ten more uses for a personalized tin?

Beautiful Baroque

I loooove being a demonstrator and PRE-ORDERING goodies!!!!

SU! was awesome and gave us all an extra discount on the stamps in the preview catalog... so of course I ordered them all! Now they are all cut out and happily asking me to play with them! No problem!!!

My backdrop is the new Brocade designer series paper... double sided for double pleasure. The card is stamped on shimmery white cardstock with the new Baroque Motifs set in Gold Encore metallic ink and the new in-color Purely Pomegranate. Add some Pomegranate Palette O'Prints paper, wine organdy ribbon, and vintage brads for finishing touches.

Father's Day Folds

I love folding clothes... when they are made out of our new palette o'prints paper!!! In fact, I seem to have turned all the household chores into stamping techniques. The iron is for wax resist, the mopping cleaner adds shine to my projects, bleach works great on dark cardstock, the oven is for polyshrink, and the blender is for handmade paper! lol

I had fun uisng the old in-color Vintage Violet and the new in-colors Soft Sky and Pomegranate!! Don't they look nice and crisp together? If you live nearby, come on over Thursday night and we'll make this card together.

I had not posted in awhile... technical difficulties. But as they say, there is more than one way to skin a cat (is that the right saying... why would you want to do that?). I can't connect my camera to my computer, the scanner and computer aren't talking, the computer won't read the USB memory stick where my photos are stored as I could only download to the computer without internet access... urgh! So... that new little camera on the computer will have to take my card photos for now! I feel like a 'MacGyveress' having figured that one out!
