Bee Happy

I have to admit that I'm addicted to chapsticks, can't live without it! One of my favorites is Burt's Bee.  My project today is a chapstick holder using Dress Up Fhionna and Die Set in her bee outfit, how appropriate is that : )

You can find a tut for it HERE, super easy!

Welcome to another Fun Friday with YNS!!

I used Tags Galore One along with Easter Bunny Fhiona for this card.  The tag and sentiment were stamped on white card stock, outlined with copic (B52) then sponged with Distress Ink in faded jeans.

Knit and That

I'm so excited to be back as GDT for YNS this month, I have a big soft spot for YNS (I was on the first DT) : )

Next to stamping, I also love to knit so when I saw this Ellie Loves to Knit I almost fell off my chair...she is sooo cute!  As a busy mom, my knitting projects sometimes take a long time to complete, seems I'm always forgetting where I left off from the pattern, so I used Ellie to make a cover for this little notebook to keep track of which row I'm on or listing supplies.  It's also small enough to fit into my purse : ) no more forgetting what size needle I needed.

supplies: stamp - Ellie Loves to Knit, YNS, copic, CB embossing folder-Argyle, MS border punch

Another s.w.a.l.k.

Hi Friends!

I couldn't resist coloring up another cute image by s.w.a.l.k. this one is called Little Madam. This is for a friend's daughter who is having a "pinkalicious" 7th birthday party.  I'm hoping to get some Halloween projects done over the weekend, how about you?

Whatcha Brewing?

I recently ran across a super cute and easy tutorial for this coffee cup card and had to give it a try. You can attach a gift card where I put the image but I couldn't resist using my newly purchased MFT stamp and best of all I used the paper crimper I've had for many moons!  The sentiment is made with MS Office Word.

New Stamp - Honey

I finally got myself some super cute stamps from CC Designs!  This card is for my middle daughter who will be going to science camp next week with her 5th grade class.

I think my coloring is a bit rusty due to lack of practice : )

Honey - August

I'm entering this into the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.

See you soon!

Flowers and Banners From Corner Punches

The tutorials are from Fiskars HERE and HERE.

It was not in the plan, but if you look closely, the MS corner punches I used matches the patterns on the papers.  I guess it was meant to be : )

Still Here!

WOW! It's been a long time since my last post. The summer seems to be slipping by so quickly, I thought I would have more time to craft since the kiddos are out of school, but obviously not.  We only have another 1.5 weeks left.  I have not been stamping much (at all), but trying to finish up a crochet project that has been waaaay over due.

Here is a card I made a while ago using Nesties Blossom die, leaves and sentiment are from Hero Arts.  I hope you are having a great summer.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet Mermaid

Yesterday was the last day of school for my kids, I still can't get a grip on how fast the year went by.  I'm hoping that the summer vacation will not whiz by either.

I made this card for my son's teacher using the sketch from The Deconstructed Sketch Challenge #4, it also qualifies for the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge #79 - Anything Goes.  

stamps: C.C. Designs, Hero Arts

Have a great weekend!
