Hello You Thinlets

Good Morning! The "Arctic Blast" has hit Dallas. My boys were overjoyed to get the text that school was cancelled...I was too! Because days like this are perfect for crafting and spending time with your family :o).

Happy Birthday Card



You can never have too many birthday cards so I wanted to share with you this card that I CASED from Wendy Cranford using the #137363 Hello You Thinlet Dies. I love this playful font...just looking at it makes you happy! And it can be duplicated by using all of Stampin' Up's color combinations. My favs are the brights!

For the balloon you will need the #119861 1 1/4" circle punch along with the small heart from the #118074 owl punch to create the bottom of the balloon.


Hope you enjoyed...thanks for stopping by!

Our Beloved PaPa

On January 29, 2015 we lost our beloved PaPa.

 “What the caterpillar perceives is the end, 
to the butterfly is just the beginning.”   
(Anonymous)
  
PaPa has not died...
He has begun a new journey in heaven,
reborn just like the butterfly.
The world was a better place when our PaPa was here
AND he will make heaven a little brighter.

Sale-A-Brations Big Day Stamp

Happy Tuesday! It's starting to warm up here and I am ready to be outside. 
Big Day Stamp Set


In the Sale-A-Bration Catalog there are some super cute products but my favorite is the #139112 Big Day stamp set. I first made this tag using Black CS and #109132 white embossing powder. It is absolutely beautiful!



Next I cased this card from Katy Harrison and changed it up a bit. I used the #131298 Crisp Cantaloupe, #137779 Stacked with Love DPS and #139112 Big Day stamp set. This set has endless possibilities and has quickly become one of my favs :o)!

New Product

TGIF! Good morning I have a couple of cute cards to share with you today. It's been so much fun using Stampin' Ups new products.

Valentine Card


To make this card I used the new #137779 Stacked with Love DSP, #133781 What's Up punch, #133519 Banner Punch and the heart is from the #137547 Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. This is such a versatile framelit with 12 pieces.

Hello Card


The #137363 Hello You Thinlit Dies was used for this card. I just love this playful font. The other words included in this set are: You, Thanks and Happy. It took me about 5 min. to make this card and was super simple! TIP: Don't forget to use wax paper before placing your cardstock on the thinlit. It is much easier to remove the phrase:o).

Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!

Weekend Retreat

Happy Tuesday! I think everyone needs a little down time after the holidays. So this past weekend I went on a retreat with some friends and did lots of crafting!

Pinecove




Sunsets at the Bluffs!


On the way we stopped in Canton and did some shopping and found lots of great deals.



Here we are in front of our cabin. Julie, Ann, Mary and Me.



My first project was thank you cards. I did not send any thank you cards for my birthday gifts in Sept. YIKES!!! Better late than never:o).

 My Stash



Next, I opened up my box of goodies from Stampin' Up...woo hoo!


Valentine Treat Bag



I was so excited to use our new framelit and made this bag for Valentine's Day.

The Snowflake

Hello! Hello! Just taking a little break to post some cute little cards in honor of our freezing temperatures!

Snowflake Cards



To make these cards I used the snowflake stamp from the #135116 Nature's Peace stamp set, #102283 VersaMark pad, #109132 white embossing powder, #133520 Decorative Dots embossing folder, #119861 1 1/4" circle punch and scraps of cardstock.


Next, I decided to use a single snowflake. I used the #119854 1 3/4 Scallop Circle to back the snowflake and a little bling! in the middle with the #133203 Just Sayin' stamp set...super simple, super cute!



Here I reversed the colors giving you another look for the card!



Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!
