St Patty’s Day

I am going to see my sister-in-law tomorrow and I thought I would make her something and this is what I came up with.



I used up some retired Kiwi Kiss cardstock for the milk carton and used Always Artichoke for the other green. The little hearts are punched out from the new Designer Series paper in the Mini Occasions catalog. It’s too hard to see but the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and says Happy St Patrick’s Day. I versamarked the Watercolor Vine jumbo wheel around the carton before I put it all together. I filled it up with Whoppers. I hope she likes it…

Thanks for checking my blog today…….

February Stamp Club

When I finished putting together the post for my March club I realized I did not have the February club, oops, life gets busy.

So here are the projects from February…018  “Springy” isn’t it! I used the embossing folder called Elegant Bouquet. And the “flutter bys” are from the Occasions Mini Catalog. It is a Stampin’ Up! embosslits die called Beautiful Wings.  The scallop is made with a punch from Sale A Bration catalog and it can be yours with a $50 purchase thru the end of March. The stamp set is called Celebrate Everything.

019 A great card for Spring…

The die cut is Flower Daisies #2 and the stamp set is called Bella’s Bloom, a set you can get free with  Sale A Bration $50 purchase.


My sister was the hostess for the month and she ask that we make a cone for filling with flowers or candy….

022 I used the designer paper called Sending Love, it has a touch of bling. The flower is from Die Cuts called Blooms (pg 169 in the Idea Book and Catalog). The stamp set is With All My Heart.

Spring Is Finally In The Air

I am so glad it is warming up and I am ready to put away the Christmas colors and break out the Spring patterns. I was getting ready for my club meeting this month and tried really hard not to use the Big Shot for everything, A few of my club members don’t have a Big Shot and the remark was made last club that it is hard to duplicate some projects at home. I mentioned that I was willing to let them come to my house anytime (within reason) and bring their own supplies and cut out some dies to make at home. I don’t want anyone to feel frustrated about being in the club.

Anyway here are some fun projects that are great for Spring….

014   The technique I was using this month is spotlighting/reverse spotlighting. I have never done these until now. What fun. It didn’t take much to make these projects and the wow factor is huge.

The scrapbook page is the spotlighting sample…..

011 I spotlighted the flower from the Kind and Caring Thoughts (level 3 hostess set). The main paper is Melon Mambo and the flowers are Rich Razzleberry. I highlighted the melon Mambo flower with a punch of Basic Black.

This card reminds me of a Hawaiian shirt….012   What do you think?

I used the reverse spotlighting on this one.The stamp set is Circle Circus and the colors I used are Cameo Coral, Ruby Red and Certainly Celery. Super simple!!

And last but not least…..013

I love this little “whopper” box, as I like to call it. I broke down and used this die cut for the club. One out of three isn’t bad right!?! I used Summer Sun cardstock and the patterned paper is Cottage Wall. The ribbon is Whisper White. After I stamped the bunny(from the Eggcoutrements stamp set in the Occasions Mini Catalog) in Summer Sun ink, I punched the bunny out and layered it on Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I fill it with Strawberry  Whoppers,  Yummy!!
