Crazy Shadow Box

I made this as a gift for a girl in my downline who had an amazing month last month. I used up a lot of my Designer Series paper scraps to make something fun for her. If you love this paper and all it's glitter goodness you can still order it but today is the last day. You can head over to my business website and shop 24-7 to get it before it's gone! Happy stamping!

Love Bugs

Wow what a crazy month this has been! I've had lots of classes and workshops going on and I love that kind of busy! I made this adorable box using a template from Ustamp. This is a stamp set I've had forever and it was really great to bring it out and play with it again. I loved building this project and the insides were so much fun to decorate. Wouldn't this project be great for a teacher gift? As amazing as it seems that end of the year is coming up fast. If you would like to schedule a private class for you and your friends to make a project like this please head over to my business website and then give me a call to set up a time. Happy stamping!

New Colors!!!

Well Stampin' Up! has made an announcement that just blew my socks off! They have spent the last two years getting ready to renovate our current colors and here is what their fabulous hard work looks like. They are bringing back some amazing colors from years past and made them part of our permanent line up along with bringing in some gorgeous new colors for us to play with.

Animal Stories

One of the great challenges at UStamp inspired this creation. They gave us a photo to use for our inspiration and I decided to use the colors in it along with the giraffe that was prominent in the photo. I used the Scallop Circle die and my Big Shot to create the unique shape to this card. Wouldn't this card make an adorable baby card or even a birthday card for a child? Hope you enjoyed looking, happy stamping!

Easter Carton

This is a gift I made for my downline for Easter. I used the Eggcutrements Kit that is no longer available. I also used the Mini Milk Carton Sizzix Die (that is still available). This die is a wonderful size for small gifts or candy holders. It is a lot of fun to play with. If you would like to order your own Milk Carton Die you can always call me or shop through my business website 24-7. Thanks and happy stamping!
