Quick & Easy Bookmarks

Pirate Bookmark

GBook Marksood Morning Stampers!

Just wanted to post this super cute project today before I head of to work!

Awhile back my son had a corner bookmark he got from a friend and it was a pirate. It was falling apart and he asked me to fix it. So of course I did!

His classmates really liked it and kept asking where he got it from.

Well over the weekend I had a little time in my craft room SO I made all his classmates a bookmark!  Aren’t these the cutest???

Well they where a hit!  Don’t these just make you smile??? I LOVE them!

Anyway, I am making a quick video on how to make these. I will post  as soon as it’s done! Monster Book Mark 2I’m almost done with it just need to edit it!

Couldn’t resist this close up picture!

Thanks for stopping by and as always…

Happy Stampin!

Little Monster Patties

Hi Stampers & TGIF!!!  This week flew by!  Spent most of the week getting "caught up", re-organizing, stamping here and there.  I wanted to share a picture of the little Halloween party favors I worked on Saturday Night.  I am making these for my Son to take to his class mates!

Little Monster Patties
Lot's of Little Monsters! Are these not the cutest??

I got this idea from a Swap at Convention! (Traci DeGolier) LOVE THEM! Of course there is a Peppermint Candy sandwiched between the Scalloped Head.

My son did to and wanted me to make them for his classmates.  So yes lot's of work BUT what's a Mom to do? Make them of course! LOL!

Little Monster Patties 1Here is a close up!  I just love the one-eyed Monsters don't you?

I used Stampin' Up! Punches for them. Scallop Circle Punch, 1/2 & 3/4 " circle punches and the Word Window Punch. I will show you the finished packaging when I am done with them.

YIKES!  Let’s just say that it’s been crazy busy here in my home!  My Aunt got married July 9th and I was super busy making her Wedding Favors!  Which I am posting below.  I know finally! Then let’s see Convention – WOW that’s a whole other post!  Coming back from that it’s family vacation – Sea World, Lego Land….Hubby just went back to work this week and my Son started Summer Camp. So let’s say I’m am playing catch up, but slowly but surely I am getting back into the swing of things.  To say I’ve been overwhelmed is putting it mildly! ; )

Anyway, on to my Wedding Favors!   I hope you enjoy!  Questions please don’t hesitate to ask!  If you want more details don’t hesitate to ask me!

I made these Super Cute Favors for the Wedding party! Super easy to make.

I love the Bride one…I LOVE all the details on both of them! 

These were made with Stampin’ Up!s Milk Carton Die! How fun is this?

They look so elegant!




Next I made about 80 of these!  LOVED how they came out. 

Don’t you just LOVE the Tie? Love all the Bling too!

I sure hope the guests liked them too! 

 These were also super fun and easy to make using the Two Tags Die also from Stampin’ Up!

Top Note Bunny Box

Bunny Top Note Favor Box 1

 Who new I was going to have to make a box? LOL! This could not be helped at all what so ever!

As I mentioned in a previous Post I had Bunny parts everywhere so I just whipped it right up!

Here is what I used:

The Big Shot – Oh Yeah! Top Note Die

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Pretty in Pink

Punches: Wide Oval – outter ear and feet, Large Oval – inside of ear

Circle Punches, 1 1/4, 1', 1/2, small circle from the 3 pk of punches then the small heart punch turned upside down for the nose

Scraps of white thin strips for whiskers,

Bunny Top Note Favor Box Stampin' Dimensionals, I also sponged with Basic Gray ink around the ears, feet and cheeks.

Black Marker and white gel pen. Last but not least Certainly Celery ribbon for her cute little bow.

 Oh almost forgot The Fancy Favor Box Die.  NOW that's all I used.

Easter Bunny Card

Bunny Card Happy Saturday! 

I have yet another Bunny for you! I LOVE this Top Note Bunny!

Got the idea from Maria Cameron on Stampin' Connection who I believe got it from Terri Ransom. They made a box.

I could not resist making one.  I just added mine to a card…but you could easily put on in Front of the Fancy Favor box….which hmmmm….I do have and could show you later!  I will list all the supplies on that post. ; )

Now this would make a cute "Some Bunny Loves you card too" Doesn't have to be just for Easter.

Anyway, hope you enjoy heading out to take my son to Breakfast and then Easter Egg Hunting at the Fields should be fun!

If you have any questions please let me know.
