You Came, You Sawed

I found the colors in this week’s ColourQ challenge very striking! But when it came time to actually use them, that got a little tricky. I decided to follow Krystal’s lead, and make a masculine card with them. Since I had Crumb Cake (formerly known as Kraft) for Wood, and Basic Gray  for metal, I … Continue reading »

Bring on the Bling!

I was amazed to find two different challenges yesterday with the same theme of “Bring on the Bling”– Hand Stamped Sentiments and SUO Challenges — so how could I not do them? I was stamping with my downline Samantha yesterday (she’s taking over the after-school kids’ class for the upcoming semester),and we came across the … Continue reading »

Desk Calendar in real life

I finally got to see the desk calendar in real life, when we went to my parents’ house last week. This is a new format that Stamin’ Up recentely added to My Digital Studio, a 5 ½” x 6 ½” easel desk calendar. And it is just as cute in real life as I had … Continue reading »

Color Challenge Bird

My mom had asked me to make her some more thank you notes while we were visiting her last week, but I didn’t have the right supplies with me. When I saw this week’s Curtain Call Color Challenge, I knew it would be a great start. My mom loves doves, and while Stampin’ Up’s two-step … Continue reading »

Getting Ready for the New Year

Now that Christmas is over, I am all ready to move on to making Valentines! But Eve said that it is too early to start making Valentines, so I decided to make a New Year’s card with this week’s Stamping411 sketch. I used Night of Navy and Silver as my main colors, because I don’t … Continue reading »

Merry Month of May

I have one more page of the desk calendar to share with you today. My Mom’s birthday is in May, and her favorite color is yellow, so I wanted to be sure to create a page that suited her. The background is Daffodil Delight. Doesn’t it look great with the Marina Mist ribbon? I wouldn’t … Continue reading »

Baby Girl Thank You Notes

One of the teachers at school is expecting her second baby, a little girl. After her baby shower, she asked if I could make her some thank you notes. She wanted something quick and easy, and I wanted to make sure they weren’t lumpy so they wouldn’t cost extra for her to mail. Here is … Continue reading »

This is my favorite page of the desk calendar that I made my dad. It is for November, and contains pictures of Eve & Leo from this past Thanksgiving. Both the paper and the saying are from the Autumn Spice Digital Kit. I can’t wait to see how big Leo will be at the next … Continue reading »

Another Purple Monogram

According to the Color Coach, Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant are a “dynamic duo” so I decided to use them together on this monogram card set for another of Eve’s teachers. I was pretty excited to have been able to come up with three completely different purple monogram cards. Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Broadsheet Alphabet Ink: … Continue reading »
