Frank Day

Frank in our office celebrates his company anniversary by giving us a pizza lunch yum yum. Well he scheduled his pizza lunch on a day that we had something else going on. So instead of today the actual anniversary date we will have pizza tomorrow. Anyway I thought it would be nice to make tags that everyone in the department will wear in honor of his anniversary. Then I decided to make something for his desk so I re purposed the Michaels find from Saturday which is a little metal thingy. It cost 39cents after 90% off! I used the same paper on it as I did the card.

Baby Boy Gift Set

This was a baby gift set that I did for a close family friend's new little baby. I made my own paper by stamping the little feet all over the card stock. The initials were done using my Just Rite Stamper Curly Font.

The tin was leftover from the Michael's $5.00 stamp set that they sold at Christmas. The onesie idea was taken from Taylored Expressions. The onesies are sold at Joanns for $9.99 and with a 40% coupon what a score! I used the hippo from Gina K's Just So Hippy. I also used a little giraffe from Michaels and a bear from a very old Dot company stamp. The tin belly band was made from little boy patterned paper from Michael's. The ribbon is from the Fabric Barn in Long Beach, CA.

I really like the way this gift set turned out.

More Whiff of Joy

Katharina is taking pre-orders on her new Whiff of Joy stamps starting June 30, 2008. In addition, free shipping! So go check it out!

Monday, July 28, 2008


I went to Michael's and got all this stuff for $1.77! Well I had a $35 store credit! The actual total was $34.63 minus $9.00 for a return.

This stuff was 90% off! I bought every item that I knew could be used. The wooden boxes were regular $19.99 and I paid $1.99! I am going to but wine in them and give them as gifts. Same with everything else. The clock was regular $59.99 and I paid $5.99. They were given this stuff away. I original went in to buy some more black embossing powder and the powder that keeps the embossing powder from sticking where you don't want it too. Of course I used a 40% coupon on the non sticking powder since it was $5.49. The bridal flowers were clearanced at $2.00! Oh the shadow box was only $3.99!

I just love a deal! My husband had a look as all the items were brought in and when I told him that I only spent $1.77 he was smiling more than me!

Happy Monday to you!

Rappin Bear

This card is for a pre-teen. I airbrushed the chipboard letters and the bear's background with my Copic markers.I colored the image with Prismacolor markers months before.

I really have to work on taking better pictures. This picture doesn't do this card justice! I have to say this is one of my new favorites because it's simple and the Copic markers really pop off the page. Just take my word for it. I made my own coordinating ribbon by taking plain grosgrain ribbon and making circles with my Copics. The aloha sentiment is a rub-on that I also colored with Copics.


Stamps: High Hopes
Ink: Mememnto
Paper: Neehah Classic crest, and Stack patterned paper
Accessories: Grosgrain ribbon, nestablities ovals, rub-ons

BBQ time!

Since I haven't blogged in such a long time I have had a lot of projects to share. Last month we had a BBQ celebrating our youngest daughter's middle school graduation. I made 100 of these invites! I kept it very simple because of the amount that needed to be done. I did everything in stages and it took me about a week working on them after work. I stamped the BBQ pit which is a stamp set from Provo Craft that I bought on clearance from Js last year. It was $2.97! Anyway I colored them with my Copics. The BBQ was cut using my Cricut Expression Alphalicious cartridge. I used Cuttlebug folders for the embossing.

I can't seem to locate the pictures of the party favors. I guess I didn't transfer all my files to the laptop. I will post them when located.

A Lil bit of me is posting some blog candy! Yum Yum! Go check it out!

Happy Sunday

We had an awesome dinner last night. I grilled steak, scallops, shrimp, crablegs, and asparagus. If that wasn't enough we had a baked potato on the side! Delicious. My husband loved how I grilled everything. He took a picture cause he said no one would believe it!

To the card:

This card for this week's Taylored Expression challenge.

The card is stamped on Neehah Classic cardstock with Memento Ink. The stamp is from Safire Designs. I colored the image with my Copic markers. I used stickles to give the cupcake a little sparkle.

I'm Back.............

Sharing a computer with a husband and 3 teenagers makes blogging hard. So now I have a Laptop! I don't have to kick anyone off so I can blog and download pictures. I have no excuse not to blog!

Anyway to the card! This card was made for Kraftin Kimmie's Challenge.
I actually downloaded the cupcake image from Microsoft Office templagtes clip art and colored it using my Prismacolor pencils. I just love using clipart like this cause there are no stamping mistakes! The paper is Georgia Pacific Cardstock. The ribbon I believe is Martha Stewart and the buttons are from Wal-Mart. The patterned paper is from Joann's. The large flower was cut using my Cricut Expression George cartridge.

Well I have had a busy day so til tommorow.
