Birthday Treat Bags

Last week just seemed to drag on forever and I didn’t get anything accomplished.  So I decided I needed to do something fun, bright and cheery to get myself back on track.  So what better way than to make some fun birthday treat bags or maybe it’s more like a box that looks like a… Continue reading Birthday Treat Bags

A Giraffe Parade

Giraffes are the tallest mammals in the world...anywhere from 15-20 feet tall.  So of course if you were taking a close up pictures of their heads, you would’nt see any of their bodies....just like my card! And don’t those cute little giraffes look like they are in a photo?  That would be creative use of… Continue reading A Giraffe Parade

Giraffes in the Midst (of Leaves)

My title is a really bad play on words....Gorillas in the Mist.....Giraffes in the Midst (of Leaves).  I’m going to blame it on the fact that I was on vacation last week and was out in the sun a lot, might have baked my brains.  But it’s back to reality....no more 80 degree sunshiny days....back… Continue reading Giraffes in the Midst (of Leaves)

Simple Stamping

Stampin’ Up has been encouraging the concept of “simple stamping”....just using paper and ink to make a card.  No fancy cut outs, not along of layering, skip the bows, the fancy embellishments, etc.  That is kind of hard for me....because I really like adding all the extra’s.  But for first time stampers and for those… Continue reading Simple Stamping

Enjoy the Simple Moments

When life gets busy and you feel like your caught in a whirlwind....it’s time to just take a deep breath and sit back and relax and enjoy the simple moments.  For me that’s lunch with a friend or some quiet time stamping, a movie date with my husband,....just not planning and filling every waking moment.… Continue reading Enjoy the Simple Moments

One Design – Two Different Cards

Recently I was playing around experimenting with some water color backgrounds when I was making Valentine cards.  Some of my attempts were not good...so I just put them aside thinking maybe I could use them for something else.  Besides I hate to waste paper.   One of the instagram people I follow does beautiful watercoloring.… Continue reading One Design – Two Different Cards
