Hey chicky!

Hi everyone! Hope you're all making it down for the sale this week. In the meantime, I made another sample over the weekend using Dandelion's new stamps.The coconut tree was cut out from a Sizzix Hello Kitty die from last months release. The trunk of the tree is embossed with a woodgrain folder.The thought bubble is a real old punch from EK Success and I'm not sure if it is still being made. There are probably other companies out there that make a punch like that.

Another crafty customer

Hi everyone! I know, shocking that I am posting again. But my husband wanted me to post this next creation from Connie. She made this using the Hello Kitty Cricut cartridge. It is all glitter paper and she made everything 2 sided.She put everything in this cute yellow pot. With the mossy grass too. I'm not sure what you call it but it's the same thing they put in flower pots.Here's a closer look at Hello Kitty.So cute!!! Don't forget to check this sample in the store too. So much detail was put into this.
Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Crafty customers

Hi everyone! Gosh, this week went by so fast. One of our customers who's name is Renee, made a bunch of card samples for the store. She used all the Sizzix dies that she bought from here. First one up is Hello Kitty with a rainbow. So clever how she placed Hello Kitty on a star. Cute and simple.
This 2nd card uses a Hello Kitty deco strip die. She used this clear bubbly paper in the background to look like shower bubbles.The 3rd card is a fold out card. She used the Aloha Hello Kitty die and a bigz castle die. I'm not sure what kind of paper she cut the castle out of but it really looks like a sand castle. Another clever idea.
This last card pops open like an accordian and she used a sizzlit set with the frog and bee and ladybug. If you get a chance while you're shopping at the store, check out Renee's designs. And thanks Renee for making all these samples for the store!!!
Have a great Friday everyone!!!

Pink elephant woodgrain card

Hi everyone! I was in the stamping mood yesterday and wanted to try out the new Hero Arts woodgrain stamp.The elephant is a Penny Black stamp but I'm not sure if we still have it in the store. I used Tsukineko Versamark dazzle frost ink to do the embossing when I stamped the woodgrain background stamp on white cardstock. You can really see and feel the woodgrain texture on the card. The "you're special" stamp is from the ink & stamp sets that is in the store.


Penny Black elephant stamp, Hero Arts woodgrain background stamp, circle nesties, ink & stamp - you're special, Stickles glitter glue and Hero Arts gemstones.

Have a great evening!!!

Sizzix heart 3-D pop-up

Hi everyone! I know, I've been lazy and haven't been creating much and my hubby has been after me to post this. I saw this online at Sizzix over a month ago and made it but haven't had the time to really post this.I know it looks plain but the reason for that is instead of turning it into a mini album, I decided to make it a favor holder.This is all the pop-up hearts when you lay it down. I used Imaginisce paper because I wanted it to be 2 sided which you will see why in a second.This is the favor holder after you open it and tie the ribbons together on the side. You need 3 papers to make this. It's super easy and very fast!You can add little bags of candy in each heart. The sample will be at the store so you can see it and I hope to finish the mini album that I made with the rest of the hearts that I cut out.

Have a great weekend!!!
