Bangles Anyone?

Hello friends!

I’ve got a question for you. Do you remember that song from the Bangles in the 80’s called Hazy Shade of Winter? There is a reason I ask (and you can hear it here!)… The song starts out saying “Time time time see what has become of me”. This is relevant. I have been so busy and where has my crafting time gone?! I JUST NOW got to play with my Designer Vellum Stack from Sale-A-Bration!

But play I did! I whipped up some cute note cards using the Crazy about You set. SAB

I colored the back side of the vellum with matching Stampin’ Write Markers. These 3×3 lovelies let me play with all the different vellum sheets at once. 🙂  Can you guess which one is my favorite? Think pink ink… ha!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great weekend and maybe a chance to enjoy some good 80’s tunes! Ha!                                                                                                                                  Remember, shop with me here for your craft supplies! 🙂

CASology

Mini

Hello Again,

This time coming from a lazy Sunday. Oooooh so lazy. I’m literally in bed as I type. I decided this week to join a challange from CASology. It’s not too late for you to play too! The challange closes at noon tomorrow so go play while you can!

The challange this week is “Mini”. It just so happens that I recently made a cute little 3×3 for our wonderful mail carrier. It may look a little “Valentines-ie” because it is. I put this in our mailbox on Valentine’s day with a box of chocolates for our Mr. Ed. I’m getting a bit off here but bare with me… Mr. Ed is over 80 years old. He works five days a week delivering our mail. He leaves lollipops in the mailboxes for the kids in the neighborhood and on his day off you can find him and his wife volunteering at the VFW. Such a sweetheart!

Ok, back to the card! This is a simple little number that was fun and easy to make. I just layered the Basic Black card stock with Real Red and a 2.5″ x 2. 5″ sheet from the Stacked with Love DSP stack. These little cards are a great way to use up your scraps!

Anywho, I stamped the sentiment (Something to Say set) in craft white and heat embossed. I layered the hearts with some dimensionals and voila, C’est facile! 🙂

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!

Scrappy Note Cards n’ Box

Hello There! Are you a paper hoarder like me? Does any of this paper look familiar to you? It may not because it is quite a few years old and it has been sitting in my secret stash of scraps.  I just cannot purge. It is too much to bare! So… I decided to use them! These cute note cards are all made from scratch paper, even the card stock was scratch. I hereby announce that not one single sheet of 8.5 x 11 card stock was cut!

The stamps are all current though. We have the Four Frames, Petite Pairs, and Teeny Tiny Wishes.

I made a little gift box for someone and put a couple of these cute numbers in there. I took the pic of the box in a hurry with my cell phone and the picture is so awful that I put it in black and white. It’s just so busy with the counter top, paper, ribbon, and reflection from an empty box of cupcakes. 😉
