A Butterfly CASE from Angie's blog!

Hi!!  I was browsing some of my favorite stampin' blogs the other day, and I came across THESE cards on Angie Juda's Blog.  They are so cute!!!  I recreated her cards with the supplies that I had, and I'm very happy with how it turned out!!  It's difficult to see in the picture, but for the butterfly, I stamped the solid butterfly image off in Wisteria Wonder to get a lighter tone.  Then I stamped the polka dots on top.
Looks better in person!!  :)

Trio of squares!

Hi!  Here is a card that my Tuesday morning Day-Timers stamped this month.  Some time ago, I saved an idea, but did not write down who created the original idea for this card.  I really liked it and thought I would tweak it a bit for my class.  I searched through Stampin' Connection (on-line community for Demonstrators), but came up empty.  So I'm sorry I can't give credit for this inspiration.

So pretty!!
Stamps: Just Believe, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso
Paper: Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Pear Pizzazz Patterns DSP
Accessories: Scallop Border Punch, 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" Square Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Pearl Jewels, Early Espresso Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!!!  Hope you have been enjoying a bit of inspiration!

A Special Gift for a Special Someone!

Hi!!  A special friend of mine is celebrating a special milestone birthday.  Her party was on Saturday, and she insisted on "no gifts", but I couldn't resist making her something!!  So I made her a notepad holder with Stampin' Up's clear stamp storage cases.  These are great to keep in your purse or even in your car, for when you need to jot down a little note or something.  I also included some post-it notes on the inside front cover.  These are so easy to create, and such a nice gift for that someone special!!!

Happy Birthday Carol!!
I also created a coordinating card for her!

Stamps: On Your Birthday
Ink: Markers: Wild Wasabi, Pacific Blue
Paper: Pacific Blue, Whisper White, Beyond the Garden DSP
Accessories: Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Big Shot, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Rhinestone Jewels

I love how this turned out!  I also baked a little treat for her...Pie in a Jar!!!!  I have been making these little pies like crazy!!!  I have several in the freezer just waiting to be baked for when I get a little craving!!  I love the peach ones!!!  I warm mine up in the microwave, then add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top...heavenly!  You can make your own pie crust and your own filling, but that's just not for me at this point in time.  So I went with the refrigerated pie crust and canned pie filling and it was delicious!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
