    Last Sale-a-Bration inspiration Giftable, Catching Butterflies.

    Last Sale-a-Bration inspiration Giftable I need to share one more idea with you. Here is my Last Sale-a-Bration inspiration Giftable idea. I am using the Daffodil Afternoon DSP and the Catching Butterflies stamp set. Of course there are a few more items too. This was a live from a week ago. I needed a fun way to share some flower seeds with my neighbor. Here is what we came up with from that video. Starting with the Ombre Gift Bags for this idea. There are five different colors, humm, the 2021-2023 In-Colors to be exact. I used the Soft Succulent because I knew that the recipient would love it. Added…

  • Paper Pumpkin

    First from the Lots of Pun, Paper Pumpkin kit.

    First from the Lots of Pun This alternative is the First from the Lots of Pun. This Paper Pumpkin kit is going to make EVERYONE smile. It is all about silly puns. Best thing since sliced bread I would say. For this idea I used only what was inside the box. However, I cut is all in half. The cardbase, the layer piece and even the centers. Yup, all in half. Ohh, did I mention even that little Pool Party piece?? It was also cut in half. Here is my idea… I was thinking that this could be for a thank you gift. Birthday bag tag is also another possibility.…

    Last of Mystery Card Night from May.

    Last of Mystery Card Night Here is the Last of Mystery Card Night from May. She sure is a cutie, right?? Remember the theme was farm animals. Yes, I do think that a rabbit is a farm animal. I justify this because they get shown at the 4H fair. This stamp comes from the soon retiring Springtime Joy stamp set. The butterflies are a bonus from this stamp set. Would you not agree?? Out colors here are Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green. Using the same colors the rabbits flowers and leaves. How?? Well, do not forget that there are TWO different watercolor pencils packs. Assortment one has the Daffodil…

Add in a few pieces of bling, a few flowers and of course butterflies!! What would you have added?? Funny how just adding a couple things different they all kinda change.

    Happy 4th of July to you and your family.

    Happy Birthday America! Sounds kinda funny saying Happy Birthday to a Country, but… That really is what today is all about. How as a new country “we” decided “we” wanted freedom from Tierney and Oppression. Those freedoms were as the result of many brave men and women. Freedoms that at times get taken for granted. As a Marine mom, I have a small understanding of the drive that it takes to be brave and go off to fight for those freedoms. The worry of a family when loved ones go on faith and belief that our country stands for Freedom. These freedoms that are still alive today, gratefully!! Hugs and…

Paula is one of my partners in shenanigans, crafty guru, unofficial team secretary and MY FRIEND! I am sorry we could not have celebrated in a much more fun way, but chatting on the porch will have to do… for now! Happy HAPPY Birthday to you!! Remember during Coffee and Cards yesterday, I told you I had a plan for the Bumblebee card?? You BET!! I knew it would be part of this special ladies birthday gifts. However, it…

    A Look back..

    Here is a retiring stamp feature… Beautiful Day. Want to take a peak back at the post… Link. This “watercolor” technique and Birthday cards were so fun to create. Thank you again Korine for letting me use your stamp set!! Retiring… Love What you Do! Ohh, I am sniffling just a bit over this one. I can promise that this one will NOT be in the BOGO sale next month! This “tag” has been issued to a few business owner friends as a “Free Class Pass” and will be honored once again once thing get back to “normal”. Check the original post here.

    11/30 Coffee and Cards

    Ohh, what fun I had out at Geodes and Gemstones today! Thank you to Holly and Dennis AGAIN for letting me use part of their space! I appreciate all that joined us today! But let’s talk Coffee and Cards. Can you believe that we did not stamp one single thing?? I did however find the Santa and reindeer. So there is your bonus card. The sentiment from the Santa’s sleigh is a sticker from the Memories and More pack (150808). The card base is from the Memories and More Cards and Envelopes (150440), which can make 20 cards. The Santa on the right is a card from the same Memories…

    11/23 Coffee and Cards

    Had so much fun with Coffee and Cards today. We worked on 6×6 paper and what could we get out of it. Using some bigger pieces this time, still being about to get 2 cards and 4 tags. Yes, I am getting ready for Christmas, but.. please be sure to enter the Challenge on Facebook. I bet you are asking where this snowflake paper came from?!? The Feels like Frost as two sides and this foil side is the reverse of the “frost” photos. The other side is pretty don’t get me wrong, but its almost a one and done side. And are you loving the alternative colors?? I sure…

    Gift Tag-Come to Gather

    Remember the Butterfly tags?? This is the same size 3 x 4 1/4. Using the Stamps, Dies and of course that DSP. The Burlap Ribbon was cut apart and use as the vines stems. I wanted to coordinate and also highlight the different colors used in this pumpkin pattern. I know, I know, Mint Macaron Pumpkins are very unusual. So are Soft Sea Foam ones, but why not?? I do want to draw your attention to the sentiment. This is one stamp, one verse that is easy to cut up into these three pieces. Also, notice that the double pumpkin set as been split up. I bet, you can not…
