You Made My Day

Have I ever told you about my wonderful neighbors? Well my sweet neighbor Kristina left a bottle of wine on my doorstep on my anniversary so this card is for her.


The stamp set that I used I got for FREE during sale-a-bration! It’s called “Best Day Ever”. I also topped it with a button that I got for free from the “Best Year Ever” accessory pack.  I used the new beautiful, shiny, and lovely Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim from the Occasions Catalog. Geez, you would think I like that stuff or something. 😉

The texture you’re seeing comes from the Happy Heart Textured Impressions folder. I paired the Bermuda Bay with Melon Mambo and for a little fun threw in the Calypso Coral. The wee little hearts I made from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit that I posted last time. That thing is VERSATILE! And I just happen to love it!

I think this card packs a punch with color, texture, and dimension thanks to my lovely dimensionals adhesive under the banner! I hope you like it and I hope that the lovely Kristina does too! 🙂

What a Treat!

Well, I had to do it. I just HAD to get the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit in the Occasions catalog. But I will say this… I am glad that I did! I love this little booger! It’s on page 9 of the catalog. If you don’t have one let me know and I’ll get one to you.

Some Designer Series Paper I hoard. I know that it sounds ridiculous but at times I feel that it is just too pretty to use. This little bag that I made is a prime example. I used DSP that I have been hoarding for many many moons. But, I said enough with the madness and used it and I’m so glad that I did!


I cut two pieces of DSP out to use with the Thinlit. One 6″x6″ and the other 6″x3″. I just used the multi-purpose liquid glue to hold the bag in place and it did great. The little heart below the sentiment is actually from the owl punch. I use that little guy for so many different things!

This treat bag was for Belle’s teacher for their Valentine’s party so we put a little message inside with a Ghiradelli chocolate square in the bag.


To get the cute little tab on the message I just used a small scrap of the DSP and used my bone folder to curve it. I used the new Handheld Stapler on page 21 of the Occasions catalog to attach it. I have really come to rely on this thing. It staples through many layers just as easily as a single one.

So there you have it, a CUTE little gift bag that is easy to make. And really it can pull double duty. The receiver can use it again to give to someone else once they take their personal message out. The gift that keeps on giving folks!

Happy Valentine’s Day

Well, Happy almost Valentines’s Day! I would post tomorrow in true celebration of the holiday but it also happens to be my wedding anniversary. So here is a “love” card I made with some of our new products.


Some products aren’t so new like the gold sequence trim and the chevron embossing folder. The ribbon is from the Sale-a-bration catalog and is a wee bit brighter than the Crisp Cantaloupe (it’s Calypso Coral) but I like the way it pops! I used the new “Stacked with Love DSP Stack” in the Occasions catalog that I loooove. In this picture one of the banners is from the same paper stack and the other is the fancy gold foil paper.

The stamp set is “Crazy About You” and I tell you, you can use this stamp set for any occasion. From “Happy Spring” to “Celebrating Father’s Day”. CUTE CUTE CUTE! And it also has a couple flowers. I used the coordinating Flower Medallion punch under the sentiment.

I think my next purchase is going to be the Bouquet Bigz L Die so be prepared for some flower projects to come! Ugh, I am ready for spring. Are you with me?




Hey Hey! I have to make this post super short because I sneaked away while little miss fell asleep in the high chair! Don’t you LOVE this stamp? It is from the Salebration catalog. It is the Best Day Ever stamp set and I used the Happy Hearts embossing folder. It’s a cute bright card that is easy to mass produce. During this promotion for every $50 you spend you get to pick your selection of free goodies! You know that I took part in that action! You can too here!

Sorry I don’t have more pics to post. I’m pushed for time and for some reason my computer is saying that the pics of this card that I do have are too large to upload! Ugh!

Have a great week and make time to create! It does a body and mind good! ❤


Cutie Pattootie


Hello Indeed!

This little cutie is for my dear friend Becca. Just a 3×3 to let her know that I was thinking of her and of course I used the Punch Board to make a coordinating envelope. The “hello” comes from the Perfect Pennants stamp set and I used the Banners Framelits.

The card stock is the Baked Brown Sugar (I always want to call it burnt brown sugar, that doesn’t sound very appetizing does it?!) and I stamped with the wood grain back ground stamp and put a layer of vellum on it to soften it up a bit. The little bling is from the gold sequence trim.

So there you go. Easy Peasy three by threesee. Yes, I am the dork that said that! Ha!
