Deer Friends


Check out these 2 cards we made a Cheryl’s Stamp-a-Stack. The first one is a criss cross card using the Sizzix Pennant Die and the Top Note die. We used the reindeer from Deer Friends and added the eyes that move and a red nose. Riding Hood Red ribbon completes this card. I almost forgot to add the Holiday Treasures DSP.

The second card uses the same stamp set and DSP, but we used the scallop edge punch. Notice the small strip at the bottom, that is what is left after you punch your scalloped edge and I decided to add it to the bottom of the card, kinda neat, isn’t it? The sentiment is Heard it from the Heart, stamped in Riding Hood Red ink. We also used the 1 1/4″ & 1 3/8″ circle punches. I don’t know what I would do without those two punches. I use them all the time.

C/D Photo Album




Here is my version of Patty Bennett’s C/D Album. I used “Summer Home” Simply Scrappin’ kit, and added the 1″ Double-Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, in Chocolate Chip, and a small piece of Kiwi Kiss/Vanilla Satin Ribbon to the front cover. The rest of the album uses all the C/S, DSP and stickers from the Scrapbook Kit.  I made this album for my “Adopted Mom” Carol. She turned 70 years old in September. She loves my Granddaughter’s like they were her own and I wanted her to have a memory of the 4 of us celebrating her birthday. The Girl’s helped me make cup cakes for her, and she has lunch with us on Thursday when I have the Girl’s. She always brings us soup from Panera’s. Jocelyn and Gianna are great soup and bread eaters.
I can never get my photos to load in the right order. So sorry!

Top Note Teat Box


We made this cute little box in our Stamp Club this month. Of course we used the Sizzix Top Note as the front and the back. I found this tutorial  from Angie Tieman. She modified the “pizza” box pattern for this great box. We also used the Ghostly Greetings DSP and the Pumpkin Pie 1/2″ striped grosgrain ribbon. The bats are made with black c/s and the square scallop punch. So easy, and cute too! These would be really cute out the Christmas DSP too. Fill this up with some home made fudge, or some wrapped candies, and you have a simple little gift. Great for teachers, neighbors, and people you just want to have a little something from you.
