Here are my latest creations. I found some picture frames at the dollar store and thought they'd be fun to dress up. I did this pretty pink one first and like it so much, I wished the DSP was current so I could enter it into the challenge over at Late Night Stampers. It was all about punches last week. Anyway, I ended up making another out of current Stampin' Up! products as that is the rule over there. All current Stampin' Up! products only.
This lovely pink one uses last years Raspberry Tart paper. I think it is sooooo pretty. I guess you can see I'm still on a paper flower kick. hee hee! These are made out of vellum and sponged with Regal Rose ink
This second one is covered in our ever lovely Cottage Walls DSP. I added more vellum flowers sponged in Rich Razzleberry. The phrase is from the Razzle Dazzle stamp set. I thought it turned out pretty, too, even if I did shabby it up a bit. I found an old picture of my 2 oldest boys. Look, the little one has on daddy's shoes and socks! LOL Of course they are both grown now, but it was a fun trip down memory lane just so one of the frames had a picture in it.
I know, I know. Some days I'm too silly for words! Oh well, at least I have fun! That's it for tonight. I hope you guys have a great week! I know I will be glad when it's stamping time again. As a matter of fact, I'm having a Learn to Stamp class on Saturday the 27th. If you are in the OKC Metro area and would like to come, let me know. I'd love to stamp with you! Until next time, remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!

I will tell you that I have spring on the brain AND I've been stuck in a yellow/pink mode for the past week or so. I'm trying to break out of that, but I'm still thinking spring!
This sweet little matchbox was cut with the Big Shot and the Stampin' Up! Matchbox Die. It was quick and easy!
Cardstock: Old Olive, Welcome Neighbor DSP (Sale-a-Bration)
Ink: Crushed Curry
Stamps: Tiny Tags
Misc: Sweet Pea Felt Flowers, Medium Jewelry Tag Punch
I hope this card looks spring-y to you. I got it made and then couldn't decide if it looked like spring or not.
Cardstock: Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, Whisper White, Welcome Neighbor DSP
Ink: Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Glorious Green
Stamps: Whimsical Words, Good Neighbor

This is for St. Patrick's Day. I put a self-stick bar pin on the back so it can be worn, but I'm sure you could find other uses for it.

Stamp Set: Fine Flourish
Misc: Fun Foam, Clear EP, bar pin, Crystal Effects, Movers and Shapers Die, Big Shot,
That's about it for today. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!

I saw some great flowers done by another Stampin' Up demo, Lee Conrey and they were beautiful. She said she used an old cookbook. Well I like my old cookbooks, so I used a magazine and a PHONE BOOK!!! How green is that?!? Seems like I get a new phonebook on my porch every few weeks. They were really stacking up, but now I can turn them into beautiful flowers! All it takes is a Scallop Circle punch from Stampin' Up!, a little ink, a Stampin' Sponge, and a brad. Voila! A flower as pretty as can be!
I hope you like them. Give it a try. They were a TON of fun to make! Until next time! Remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!

Hello Stampers. I had a great time seeing what you guys thought I'd used in my project sneak peek. Some of you were really good! I guess I should tell you what I did use. Lets see....On Board Heart Book, Sendling Love DSP, Go Anywhere Glue Stick, Very Vanilla Cardstock, Serif Essentials Die, Big Shot, and Stampin' Deminsionals. I still haven't finished, but it will be a name banner for my DD's room. I promise I will show you when I do finish.
I suppose you are all on pins and needles waiting to hear if you were the winner of the blog candy. OH! You want to know what the blog candy IS! The winner will recieve, from me, the single stamp Flowers in Silhouette and some 6x6 sheets of Sending Love DSP. Now on to the WHO!!!
Hmmm... Big Shot, sending love DSP, & the M from On Board Timeless Type, oh! And Stampin' Dimensionals! Can't wait to see!
Jacqui, please email me with you address so I can get your candy in the mail! That about wraps it up for this evening, folks. Remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!

Sis was tired of the boring ugly white showing when her work ID flipped over, SO....she created this insert to go behind her ID in the plastic holder. Isn't it gorgeous? It makes me wish my
work ID was in a pouch. However, I have to swipe mine to get through doors, so no pouch. :(
DD was working on valentines to take to her friends at school. I admit I did help her a bit, but she chose colors and worked really hard on these great candy treats. She and I took turns running the cardstock through the Big Shot with the Matchbox Die. She assembled all the bases and I punched hearts out of the sliding cover. She put the candy in and put the cover on. I think she did a great job, don't you?!?
I spent part of my time working on a project that is not quite finished. I'm going to tease you with a sneak peek. Can you guess what I'm using to make it? Here's the deal. Name 3 Stampin' Up! items from this photo and I'll put your name in a drawing for my very first Blog Candy! Just leave a comment with your guess and I'll pick and post a winner on Thursday night 2/12/10! All the names will go into a bowl and DD will draw one out randomly. Good luck!
Edited to change drawing date. I said I would draw a winner for the blog candy on Thursday 2/12/10, well, Thurdsay is actually 2/11/10 and THAT is when I will draw. Sorry for any confusion! Have a stamping good week.
