Baby Chic Valentine Card

Baby Chic ValentineGood Morning! Hope your weekend is off to an awesome start!  So far so good over here!

I have another quick share before I head on out to my sons Basketball game.  Now isn't this the cutest? I did one like this many years ago but for Easter. Which you can see HERE!

I came across it and thought how cute to make one holding a heart.  So this is what I came up with!  I've got a few more shares but will post a little later!

Questions email me or comment here!
Thanks for stopping by and as always….

Wedding Party Favors

Happy Saturday all!  I know I am so sorry to have been MIA for a month! 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!


Ok, I’ve got to get ready to take my son to a birthday party today!  I’ll also be sharing the Wedding Invites I made, Convention Swaps, and much more! Questions email me: or call/txt me 760-597-0020

Thanks for stopping by and as always…

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!

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.

 Happy Stampin',

Valentine Class Share

Evening all. Well today was a busy Monday lots going on. I wanted to share my projects and cards that we did for my class that I had on Saturday. Now I have already shared all the Cards, just not the 3D projects. I do have to say I think the favorite was the Lion Card.  I am showing a group shot but will share the 3D projects with more detail on each photo soon. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

Valentine Class
Valentine Class Projects & Cards
On top are the 3 cards that I've shared before. The 3D projects from left to right are:
Love Top Note Die box – Saw this on SCS website and they have a great Video Tutorial and it was super easy to do. The Middle is from "Stampin'  Up!s" New Petal Cone die – LOVE this die and was inspired by the On Stage presentation from Bonnie at Leadership in Nashville. Then I saw the one that my lovely Florida friend Sharon Field made, and HAD to "CASE" that Tag. You can't see it to well but you'll see it in a close up photo when I post it. It just gave it that extra "touch" and I think all the Ladies loved it too. Then the last one I cased from "Becky Roberts" she shared some super cute treat holders that she made during the Holidays for a craft fair and they were just the cutest so I new I had to make some for Valentines Day.

Questions please don't hesitate to ask. Check my events for upcoming classes
