Carousel Notes Card

OK, so I lied. This is the last make n take we did. We used the Carousel Notes, Afternoon Tea DSP, Chocolate Chip Poly Twill Ribbon, & the Live Your Dream stamp set all found in the Occasions Mini Catalog. Did you know that the brass template, Pick A Petal, found on page 187 coordinates perfect with the Carousel Note Cards. You can use the template to do the paper piercing. So you get perfect…

Tart & Tangy Card Case

I found this card case on Paperpleasing.typepad.com. I know you are probably getting tired of this stamp set. But I just can’t stop using it. Oh, and the Summer Picnic Designer Papers either. It holds 4 cards that are 3 1/2 x 5 plus the envelopes. This would make a very nice teacher gift.

Carousel Note Treat Holder

Isn’t this cute? So easy. You use the Carousel Notes in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I found this on Andrea Walford’s blog.

I then added a 1 x 7″ piece of Afternoon Tea Designer Paper for the belly…

UpperCase Living

My husband many years ago started calling my crafts, “Cincraft” for Cindee’s Crafts. So I thought it only fitting to have a sign with my Craft Name in my Fabulous Craft Room. ( I will post photos of my room soon, need to do some cleaning up). I was able to custom design my expression thru Lynne Marini at UpperCase Living. You then need an ID# which is 487562, Token: marini. Check out their web site.  I…

Jeremy after hair cut

Here is Jeremy and Cassie after their hair cuts. We keep them short. Cocker Spaniels are suppose to have long “skirts”, but unless you brush them every day or they are show dogs, why go to all the trouble and they really are much happier with less hair.This is Jeremy. He will be 9 years old next month. We adopted him when he was 4. We think he was a show dog that just didn’t…
