Hiddy ho stampers! Here is a fun little project made with some new In Colors and the individual stamp Tiny Teacup. The colors are Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant and Lucky Limeade. I am going to be using this for a club project later in September. I absolutely love the little polka dot brads and used them for the centers of my flowers that I punched with the triple layer Blossom Bouquet Punch - these are a great way to get alot of value in your punch. If you are interested in joining a club and live in my area, contact me today as clubs are resuming in September and I will have a few spots opening up. Clubs are always alot of fun and I really look forward to each one, it's like having a whole bunch of friends over. Some of my club girls have been with me since I started just about 3 years ago and I have really gotten to know them and love getting together. It's always so much fun to share what you love doing and get paid to do it - now that's a great job!

Happy weekend peeps! I know it's been a week since I've posted and I say it everytime, but seriously, I need to hire an assistant. I just tried to post this here and blogger lost the whole thing....don't they know I don't have an extra 10 minutes in my day! If I didn't have to take care of everything else, like children and housework, I'd have so much time for playing with my stamps - LOL!
Here is the ribbon swap that I recently did. The fabric is coming out in your new Holiday Mini on September 1st and just look at those huge buttons - I just can't get enough Stampin' Up. The box is a BigShot die, Box #2 and was so amazingly easy to put together, I'm sure you'll be seeing lots more of this one around
I'm off to try and get the next month's worth of club prep done - got that back to school, get organized feeling - maybe even get another little creation done
Till next time....thanks for stopping by - hope you enjoyed your stay!

So here is a Mojo Monday sketch again. This time using Sahara Sand and Poppy Parade with the Aviary and Tiny Tags stamp sets. These colors are really great together - thanks to my super duper Color Coach. I just love it - always so easy to put together some great colors that you may not normally reach for.
Happy Sunday Stampers!

tata for now.....
My niece (my sister's daughter) is having her 3rd birthday party tomorrow and I had seen this bird quite a while ago and saved it until now - I just added the fence and scenery. I just thought it was so perfect for her and so easy to make - all you need is a circle punch and a scallop circle punch - well actually the Word Window punch as well to make the fence. I sponged the clouds in the sky with a scallop circle, added a little grass behind the fence, a flower and butterfly and I think it turned out darn cute! Hope she likes it - actually hope her mom likes it too, there is always a friendly competition when it comes to family birthday cards - heehee!

My brother and his family arrived last night from out of town, so I am hoping to find time to still post this week, but if you don't see much of me, it's because I am spending time with family. I get to meet my niece I haven't met yet (she's 10 months old) and he will get to meet my daughter he hasn't met yet (she's 15 months old) Sometimes I wished we all lived closer together
Thank you for stopping by.......hug someone you love today

Hiddy ho stampers! This has got to be one of my most favorite color combinations Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride. I always, always reach for green! My house is green, my scraproom is green - I just love green and with pink and brown it's a match made in heaven! This is the new designer paper called Nursery Nest, I loved the pink bird on the bottom of the 12x12, so I just cut her out and used it as my focal image instead of a stamped image. The sketch started out as a Mojo Monday sketch and sort of evolved since my image was too large. If you haven't ever worked with a sketch, I just love http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com/ for their awesome sketches. They really get the "mojo" flowing and stretch your own creativity.
Well, it's getting late and I have a little one clinging to my leg crying - she just won't go to sleep tonite, so I am off to try again
Thanks for peeking in

Today's post is made with the Nature Walk set, I am so happy this one made it into the IB&C. I've used Early Espresso (an all time fave!) Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. I am so sad though that the Early Espresso Satin Ribbon is no longer, although we can still get other colors, this one just looks so rich and yummy! I've added a little piercing in a couple of corners and the new Mini Brads - these are just so....well, cute 'cuz their mini! and as I mentioned yesterday I love anything mini:) I used this card last night for my nephews birthday (he's 20 something??) so I thought it served well as a more masculine card
Thanks for peeking in.....enjoy your day - do something that makes you smile - life's too short not too!

Happy Tuesday peeps! I have been away for a few days relaxing with my family on the beautiful beaches of Vancouver Island. Oh how I missed my stamp room, I would love to be able to take all my stampin' things with me but I think I might get in trouble with the "luggage department" in my house - LOL!
This was one of those sets that I just had to buy to make the project. This little counting book is made with the Barnyard Buddies set and I normally would not have bought it, but the project in the Idea Book and Catalogue inspired me! I also used the two tags die and a mini alphabet set (that's another story for another day!) So very simple to make - the only thing I may change is to limit the embellishments to something a little flatter so that I can have it laminated for my little one. She saw it sitting on the table after I took the picture, grabbed it and immediately was ripped of the buttons, which tore the paper. So maybe 14 months is a little young to learn how to count!
I can't wait to get all this vacation laundry done and be able to go play in my room tonite - I started a cute little project before I left and will finish it up so I can show it to you tomorrow.
