Field Flowers

Got back to my stamp room today. Been a busy week and it was nice to relax.  I realized I didn’t have any projects for my classes the end of April and tomorrow is April!!!

Here is a card we will be doing on April 20th.  It’s made with the set, Field Flowers.  Such a nice set! There are 2 different versions below. Not sure which one I like better. What do you think, pearls or no pearls?

Stay tuned for more info on my upcoming clubs.  I can’t believe the new IBC will be out in 2 months!!!  Are you as excited as I am??

Hoppy Easter

I have to go on a business trip this week so I won’t be posting much this week.  I’ve made these pencil holders before, but not any Easter ones. The pictures are a little big, but you cam see the detail better I guess. These are so simple to do.  Cut the DSP 7 1/2 x 4. Score it on 1 1/4 and 2 3/4. Put adhesive on one of the long sides and bottom.  Place the pencils in it and seal it up. Pull the pencils out and take a crimper to the bottom.  The bunny is just circle & oval punches. I used the computer for the verse.

The thing that took me the longest was finding the stupid googly eyes!  I had to take them off other card projects!  Time to go to the dollar store and get more of them! Don’t you just love the back!!!

The punches I used were as follows:

Ears – SU Large oval, SU Small Oval

Head: 1 3/8 circle, 3/4″ circle for jowls & 1/2″ circle for nose.

I confess, I’m a big CASER. I saw this card (and pinned it on Pinterst) and just loved it.  I changed around just a little – adding a base layer, I always have a darker color for the base card.  I also decided to do this card for this Friday’s class. I didn’t really like the original card I chose for the class so this gave me a good excuse to change it. I still have room so contact me if you want to join us!

Happy Accident

So, I was playing with my new Summer Smootches DSP tonight ( I LOVE THE SUMMER SMOOTCHES by the way, wait till you see my upcoming projects!) and while cutting some of it for projects, one piece ended up on the back of my iPhone. It was the exact size of the iPhone which made me think “hmmm, I have a clear case on my iPhone, I wonder how the paper will look under the case.”

So, here’s what it looks like! It was SO easy!  Just measure the size of your iPhone, corner round the corners and use a circle punch to punch out the hole for the camera (you trace the oval through the case and punch holes around it. My particular case has a black trim around the hole so you don’t see any jagged edges).  You can change this out for the seasons!  So cool, don’t you think? This was the chattiest post I’ve done in a long time 🙂

Working on new things to sell at my upcoming craft fair this Saturday. I keep seeing cards and things with the Angry Birds on them and thought I would make these little beauties.  They are done with punches and Sizzix dies.  Figure the kids would like them. Although I have no clue what Angry Birds are all about!

Thought I Lost My Mojo

I’ve been trying to design a card for my team meeting tomorrow night and I’ve been stuck for a while. Finally came to me tonight!  I’ve been into the Island Indigo lately so I thought would just stick to what’s been working.  I love the big pearls and have been trying to incorporate it into a card. Looks great on the bow doesn’t it?

Special Birthday

Tomorrow is my Great Nephew’ Wes’s first birthday party! I can’t believe I’m old enough to have a Great Nephew!  You may recall he was the cut Chewbacca in the Christmas card I posted in December. I made him this cute birthday card – it’s retired Celebrations paper. Luckily, I bought up a ton of it when it was on clearance in December!

Mixed Bunch Again

Ok, so if I haven’t convinced you to buy the Mixed Bunch Punch & Stamp set, this project will probably  help you make up your mind!  These were super simple Post-It-Note holders I’ll be selling at the craft show I’ll be at in 2 weeks. Great for spring!  They work up SO FAST!!!!
