Tag you're it!

Today is a little emotional for me as I post this entry. It is my last Stamptacular Challenge while being on the Design Team. We were selected for a 6 month term and the term is over today. I was asked to stay on, but I had to decline as orders for my handmade items are keeping me very busy these days. I would like to thank all of the DT girls for making this experience such a fun one. I am so glad to have gotten to know you all and plan on staying in touch. Priscilla... you are awesome. Thank you so much for putting this team together and for running it all so well.

Ok ... on with our challenge! The Stamptacular Sunday Challenge today is "Tag you're it!" You must include a tag somewhere on your project. I used the new Stampin Up! modern label punch to make my tag. I am considering using this design for my Christmas cards this year. It's just so crisp and clean.

Thank you for coming by to see me!

Paper = CS (Making Memories Winter White)
Stamps = SU (Snow Swirled)
Extras = Pearls, Nestabilities, Dimentionals, Ticket Punch, Modern Label Punch, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder

Family Mini Album

Hi everyone,
It's a little crazy here as I am 1 week out from my home party. I am done making things and now it's time to focus on the house and food! But not before I share a little project with all of you. This is a mini album that I am giving as a hostess gift. The blank book is from 7 gypsies. It took me a while to find a blank spiral bound chipboard book. So if you are in the market 7 gypsies have them!

Here are a few inside photos:

Thanks for taking a peek! I'll see you on Sunday for another challenge!

Anything but a card

Hello! It's Sunday... and you know what that means? It's time for another Stamptacular Sunday challenge. This week the challenge is to make anything but a card. That should be easy enough. If you play along and link your project over at the SSC blog you'll be entered to win a fabby prize!

For this challenge I decided to make one of these teacher jars. I have kept this idea in my head for awhile now. The jar is filled with smarties candy and the sentiment reads "Because of you I'm a real smartie". Perfect for a teacher. And you know what's right around the corner? Teacher appreciation week.

I hope you'll join in the fun this week. Thanks for stopping by to see me.

Paper = SU
Extras = SU (ribbon, dimentionals, heart stamp(on top)

B is for baby!

These little baby cards are so fun, and they are so easy to make. I am making these for my home party to sell. This MS punch is perfect for any and all things girlie. My cricut is getting a workout lately. I really never used it much for making cards until I saw a few pieces inspiring me to use it. These outfits were made using my cricut and the new arrival cart. The embossing was made using my cuttlebug.

Thanks for stopping by!

Shopping List

This little book is actually a Christmas shopping list to keep in your purse during the holiday shopping season. On one side is your list and the other side is a pocket to keep all of the reciepts for that person. What a great way to stay organized. And guess what this book is made out of? Playing cards!! Yep... that's right! I have always wanted to alter a deck of playing cards. I came up with this idea the other day and jumped in this project with both feet. It was so fun to make.

All stamps, ink, paper, are Stampin Up!

Card Sets

Hi Guys,
Sorry so long since my lasy post. I have been busy working in my studio! Finally time has allowed me to post some of my creations. These 3 sets of note cards are packaged in sets of 6. I plan on selling these at a holiday open house I am hosting in my home in a few weeks. I am trying to produce as much product to sell as I can. So that doesn't leave much time for posting. If you bear with me for a little bit I will eventually post everything I have made.
