Bridal Shower presents for someone special . . . .

I've had these pics ready to be uploaded for some time now, but wanted to wait until today (the day of the shower). These are for my dear, dear friend in Florida who is getting married later this year. She's more of a blue and silver kind of girl (like myself). This is the box that holds her thank you notes & matching pen.

Here's a quick tutorial on how to make this box:

1. Take an ordinary cigar box & cover all the edges & inside with silver paint.

2. Using ModPodge, glue on decorative paper cut to fit around the sides & top (I used a solid color on top & bottom, and striped around the edges).

ModPodge the entire thing and set to dry. (I added more silver paint and ModPodged it all again.)

4. Add embellishments (ribbon, primas, etc.) and you're finished!

This is a matching recipe tin that I sent along with the thank you notes/box. Inside, another friend and I added our favorite recipes.

Happy Birthday

I created this card for a friend's birthday this month. I just LOVE that Cuttlebug! I like the way these colors went together. I think they really fit the person I sent it to. (Brocade Blue, Certainly Celery, So Saffron)

Happy Father's Day!

I almost totally CASE'd Cambria Turnbow's card. I just loved that little shirt pattern, and I loved the way she used the Palette O'Prints paper.

I chose Almost Amethyst and used Soft Subtles brads instead of a tie. I also stamped "Happy Day" with Eggplant Envy using the "Happy Everything" set and "DAD" in Perfect Plum with Whimsical Alphabet (uppers). I layered everything on Eggplant Envy on an Almost Amethyst card.

So sorry!

Hello everyone,

I'm sorry I haven't posted lately. It's been a crazy week. I have made a bunch of things, but can't quite post them yet (three pictures will be posted Saturday, after they have been given to the recipient).

I've also been working on more Stamp-A-Stack projects. I've come up with a different version of 2 cards I previously posted, so I'll get those scanned in today.

The Stamps in the Mail participants have mostly received their projects, so I'll post a pic of their 4 projects, too. I just started videotaping the tutorials for those and put them on YouTube. I'll put a link here later for a "teaser" if you're interested in that program. (You have to sign up in order to get the supplies and tutorials.)

A couple other items that will be posted soon (hopefully in the next week):
1 - A review of a UHU glue roller.
2 - new stamp projects from both Stampin' Up (from the preview brochure) -- just waiting for them to arrive.
3 - new stamp projects from -- just waiting for those to arrive, too.

Ok, off to chase my 4 year old and 2 year old around the house, and to work on some Father's Day cards!
