Happy Birthday Jocelyn!

October 1st was my oldest granddaughter’s birthday. Where has the time gone? I love to take my grandkids out to lunch and shopping for their birthdays. They love it too, because no brother or sister, just her. Jocelyn wanted to go to Panera’s for lunch and get her favorite, Broccoli Cheddar Soup in a bread bowl. This is the card I made for her. I love this technique.  I adhered the Whisper White piece down…

Wouldn’t you know, I put all of my gifts inside their orders BEFORE I took…

Merry Patterns, Again!

This really is such a fun set. How cute is a deer with a sweater? I love the Quilted Christmas Suite. It works perfect for this stamp set. We’ve got the Stitched Felt Embellishments & the Quilted Christmas Ribbon in the right corner & the branched below the deer. I used Dimensionals to attach the Stitched Felt Embellishment. The sentiment is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and added with Dimensionals as well. You could say this…

Acetate Treat Holders

I made a few of these treat holders. This one was for my friend Lynne. It was for her birthday. Have you seen the Acetate Card Boxes that are on page 13 of the Holiday Catalog? Did you know you can cut them to whatever size you need/want? That’s what I did for my treats. I ended up going to Cost Plus World Market for my treats. I wanted something a little different. Yes, they…

Christmas Quilt Treat Holders

Oh my goodness! Aren’t these adorable? Patty found them on Pootle’s blog. They are so easy to make. We used the Quilted Christmas 6 x6 Paper Stack. You only need 4″ x 6″ to make the treats, so this paper stack is perfect. And you can put all sorts of candy, pencils or even Wink of Stella (2 of them fit inside perfectly). We prettied them up with the matching Stitched Felt Embellishments and the…

I didn’t think I needed the Marbled background stamp (you can find it on page 165 of the Annual Catalog)……what was I thinking, of course I need. Thank you Patty for being my “enabler”. LOL Doesn’t’ it look like the same image you get when you use shaving cream? So much less mess. The top layer was first…

Another Hearts Come Home Card

If you saw my blog post yesterday, you know we used the same stamp set. This time we took it up a notch. We’ve got a Dapper Denim card base and added a few more details. First you will need to sponge the top of the card with Dapper Denim Ink and a sponge. Kind of gives it a Ombre look. The Snowflakes are from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits. After die cutting them with Shimmery…
