Quick Cards and Father's Day Cards

Well, I surely thought I would have updated my blog earlier in the summer, but as time would have it, this is my first post in awhile. I have made three projects over the last few days... The first is a card for my landlords. They were kind enough to give us brand new carpet in the house, so I felt like a thank you card was in order. I used a card in the latest issue of Paper & Crafts for the sketch and just adapted it to what I had.


Recipe: SU Creamy Caramel paper, SU Designer Series paper in Certainly Celery, SU Outlined for Fun stamps, SU Close to Cocoa ink, Prima Flowers and a button. The button is actually green, but for some reason appears as blue in the picture.

You Rule!:
Late last night I was looking for a cute project for my father-in-law and as luck would have it, I actually found something. I got the idea for this project from: and it was perfect for the gift card! Thanks so much!

Recipe: SU Really Rust paper, Yellow Cardstock, Black Cardstock, Tan Cardstock, George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartride for the star, Frosted Lace Stickles, Charcoal Cat's Eye for inking edges.

Last but not Least! Father's Day Card:

This last project is my favorite. I made it for my husband from me and our son. I got the idea from another post on Splitcoast and the free digital stamp from The Paper Makeup Stamps Blog.

Recipe: SU Sahara Sand paper, SU Creamy Caramel paper, SU Baja Breeze, SU Designer Series Paper pack, Digital Stamp for Sentiment, PTI Brown Ribbon, Chestnut Cat's Eye for inking edges, Nestablities, SU mat stack for paper piercing.

I didn't take a picture, but I also made a matching envelope using the Kreate-A-Lope templates. Super easy and cute!

Thanks for looking and until next time... Happy Scrappin'!

Here Comes Peter Cottontail

Well, not really, but take a look at these cute little Easter baskets I made courtesy of CopyCatCreations!! So, what is it called exactly when you copy a copycat??? I have no idea, but Adriana gave me a sample of this cute little box when I was visiting the other day and I just had to make time to make a few. I only made 8, so it was quick and easy!

Recipe: SU Pink Pirouette cs, SU Basic Background Stamps, Scor-Pal, SU Mat Pack, pink brads, SU Regal Rose ink, CTMH egg stamps, adhesive and paper piercer.

Cut the cardstock 7 3/4 x 4 3/4. Score at 1 1/2 inches on each side. On the long sides, cut up to the intersection. Stamp the background. Fold and glue. Add the handle and secure with brads. I just used the long piece I trimmed off when I cut the 7 3/4 side. It was perfect. Add the Easter grass and candy eggs and you've got the perfect little favor!

Three Up, Three Down

I am living, eating and breathing softball, hence, the title.... but this weekend, I actually managed to spit out three fast pages of my favorite little guy. They are not my usual style, but it worked to quench my crafting lonliness I have been suffering from. We found the "boy" pages at a scrapbook store in San Antonio that I like, that is actually called... The Scrapbook Store! I have been there a few times, and like it. Hoping I can take a few classes there when this softball madness is over. Anyway, the papers are "Genuine Boy," and then just a few stickers. I honestly did not have time for me. TFL!!

Just checking in

Just wanted to let everyone know that I am still in the land of the living, just been busy with softball! IF if EVER ends, I will begin posting again. I did make 3 pages yesterday, which was totally amazing considering everything in my craftroom had dust on it; but, of course, I haven't had a chance to take pictures and past. Maybe tonight???? Can't wait to rejoin the stamping and scrapping community!! :)

Everything was out of order on that last post. But I don't have time to fix it!! You'll figure it out when you see it. Thanks!

Little Boy Blue

In this next page, he was helping me make sugar cookies during Christmas... I let him be in charge of putting the sugar on top!! I think there was more sugar on top that in the cookies!! But, we ate them and they were the sweetest cookies we had ever eaten because he had had a hand in them! I love doing things like this with him because I know it won't be too long and he'll only want to be doing boy things with Daddy! You probably can't see it too well, but in the picture, he has powdered sugar all over his nose! :) Thanks for looking ! These are some of my favortite pictures of Easton! He looks so grown up, and yet, he is still my little boy. He is such a joy to spend every minute with!

I used my new paper pack from My Mind's Eye called Twinkle Twinkle Little Boy, and its a glitter pack too. I LOVE all the designs and especially the colors! Lots of brown and blue which is my favorite!
