Becky's Birthday!

A card I made for my daughter-in-laws birthday. Paper Stampin Up courtesy of Beate's blog candy! Thanks Beate!

Sunday, September 30, 2007

This is a gift card holder that I made for boss's day! It was a very quick project...I can't wait to make a few for Christmas!

$ Stamp Basket = Halloween Shopping Spree! Yeah Mike!

After reading blogs about the dollar bin at Michael's I thought I would take a look. I was disappointed because our Michael's didn't seem to have any Halloween stamps (boo-hoo). THEN! AT THE CHECKOUT! I spied the stamps!!!! Needless to say I picked up a couple...check them out! I am ready to stamp!

Altered Composition Book

I had a blast making this journal today. My daughter in law is great about sharing stories that Levon (My grandson) says or does. I want to have a place to write them down. Maybe someday he will sit down and have a laugh or two.
I used Stampin Up paper (Beate's candy!). Offray blue ribbon and Daisy D embellishments. To initially adhere the paper, I ran it through my Xron sticker maker. After all paper was set I used Mod Podge to bond the paper together. When it was dry I added buttons, jewels and ribbon!

The Stamping Hours

When all I can hear is the hum of the computer and the whirl of the fan, I find myself most productive/creative. Right now my desktop is so cluttered with a modge podge of supplies, but I am having a blast. The computer in my stampin room is really my daughters, so I can't upload my latest cards. I just wanted to share this peaceful fun moment! Happy Monday morning...12:55.

Goodbye Card

My husbands co-worker was retiring, so I used this flamingo stamp that I got from the $ bin at Michaels. I colored it with Prisma pencils and used card stock and ribbon. It was a quick card.

My New CHF Stamps

I got my new Cat Dancing Designs from CHF and had to take them on a test run! Wow what a ride. I had fun and love the barbed wire backgrounder.


I am sure this isn't a new blog or site, but it's new to me, so I wanted to share it. It had some neat projects and stamps.

You Have A Type B Personality

You're as laid back as they come...

Your baseline mood is calm and level headed

Creativity and philosophy tend to be your forte

Like a natural sedative, you have a soothing effect on people

Friends and family often turn to you first with their problems

You have the personality to be a spiritual or psychological guru

I guess the go with the flow mentality evolved over the years working with 4 and 5 year olds!

Cornish Heritage Farms-August Challenge

I Got Mail! Stamp Mail!

My sister and a her friend came by on Saturday and we stamped the afternoon away! It was a lot of fun. The card below was stamped with a Stampin Up set. I used a single giraffe stamp, but honestly can not remember the name of the set.

Well, the mail carrier was kind to me this week! I got my MFT stamps! They are fun! I used the piecing technique to make my first card and I think it turned out ok, I like the depth it adds.

My More Serious Side

Since I shared my funny card, I wanted to also share the intended use for this great stamp set. My favorite right now because it is so fun and versatile.

Funny Card

I love my Voila set by Stampin Up! I wanted to play with it a little bit so I stamped the image on printed paper, the tray I stamped on sparkle paper. I didn't like the face so I added a picture of my sister! The sentiment is:
(William Hanna / Joseph Barbera)"Charlie" and "Irving" Lyrics, the two carhops Fred was trying to hide from his wife.

Here we come on the runWith a burger on a bunAnd a dab of coleslaw on the side,Oh your taste we will tickleWith a great dill pickleAnd all of our potatoes are french fried, fried, fried,Our burgers can't be beat,'Cause we grind our own meat,Grind, grind, grind, grind, grind,
When you drive away,You'll really hear us say,We bid you bye, bye, bye, bye, bye,We bid you bye, bye, bye, bye, bye!
And as your on your way,A tip upon our trayWe hope to find, find, find, find, findWe hope to find, find, find, find, find.

Ok, now you know I am a bit.....peculiar? He He He

On My Way

It is starting to look like a blog now. Yippeee! I haven't figured out how to shrink my header yet, but I will. Stop by again soon!

Friday, July 13, 2007

I had no idea it would take me so long to REALLY get started with my blogsite. I still have so much to figure out. Like my header and how to put my slide show on the side? I will get there eventually-at least I hope I will!
