ONLY 2 More Day of The Occasion MIni

HI all!!
When I started out making this card I had something different in mind. I was not able to get the birds to line up the way I wanted so this is what I was able to salvage from the pieces of paper I has cut. In the end I was happy with the way it turned out. This and other wonderful papers are in the Sweet Pea DSP pack 48 sheet for $24.95. #117161

The DSP and the epoxy brads will only be available until Friday April 30Th. Click here to order your now.

Have a great day!

The Write Stuff Mini Scrapbook

I LOVE kits like this. The papers patterns and the cover weight cardstock die cuts are great. This is the second project I have made from this one paper pack. I will share that one another day. After completing these 2 projects I still have 1 die cut sheet and 2 1/2 sheets of DSP. O' what should I do with that?
I will be scheduling a class to make this very soon. Check back for update soon.
Or if you would like a kit in the mail let me know and I will get that out to you.

Fox & Friends- Sketch and Color challenge

HI! I have wanted to do a sketch or color challenge for some time. I always see them and never get back to making them. Not this time I was determined to try one. I love the color combination. Chocolate chip, Tempting Turquoise, Only Orange and a hint of Summer sun. The little critter turned out so cute. If you look closer the lion and owl have a cool tie-die effect. I originally thought I wanted the critters to be only orange but when I layed it out they just did not look right. I switch to the Tempting Turquoise and O I forgot to clean the stamp. BUT look at how they turned out. LOVE IT!!

If you have not tried a sketch before you should their fun!!

Occasion Mini Ends soon have you Order this wonderful Stamp set yet?

Take care!

2-Step Bird punch -Chickadee

This is a twist on the 2-step bird punch. I have seen this and other birds on a few different blogs and thought I would give it a try. I think the Chickadee was one of the easiest to do. The bird is basic black, whisper white and gray. If you would like directions for the birds please e-mail me and I will try to find the link where I found them for you.

*Note the 2-step bird punch is in the Occasion Mini that ends SOON.

Ribbon: Dusty Durango
Dies: Top Note
Stamp sets: Pocket Silhouettes and Teeny Tiny Wishes

Halloween & MY Digital Studio?

Yes, I am aware that it is April and we should be thinking SPRING! but I wanted to share these pages of my boys with our new neighbors or did I want to share the layout and cool techniques? I used the Cast a Spell DSP along with Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie cardstock. I used my Digital Studio to create my "Stamped Embellishment".
What I did was open a blank document and placed all the element on the page that I wanted to use. My next step was to change some of the colors and increase the size of some of them to fit them on the Scrapbook pages. Very cool benefit of having the MDS if you ask me.
Have a good day!!
