It was really nice having him all to myself - and I am going to do the same today and tomorrow as well so not much stampin' going on around here!! But, I wanted to share the last sketch of Tamara's for this year! It is a great sketch, and I hope you all can find some time to do it!! If you do, make sure you leave a link on Tamara's site so we can all see it, you may be chosen as the featured designer!! And, check out what the rest of the DT did with this one, they totally ROCKED it!!! Not everything on this card is SU! and there is NO stamping - can you believe it?! I just used my rubons, which I totally love!! And, how can you go wrong with yummy chocolate chip designer paper and card stock? The ribbon I used is very vanilla taffeta from SU! and I just love it, it is beautiful ribbon!!! If you have any questions, give me a shout, otherwise, I am off to go Christmas shopping with Zach!! I will be back with my Stamp Something Challenge tomorrow and then that is it until Christmas!!!

Hi all!! Sorry about the lack of posting yesterday, but we had no Internet for most of the day due to a huge snowstorm that has moved in! It is REALLY cold here (remember, I live in CA, it should not be REALLY cold!) and the snow actually stuck so we have several inches on the ground and we are supposed to get more today!! Ack! At least I have Internet again, I can blurf some and catch up!!! I did do some cards yesterday - I made some thanks cards for some of my husband's coworkers at his last job for getting him some nice farewell gifts as well as some for Christmas packages and such! This is one of the ones I did. I did some stitching and I cut out some of the flowers on the designer paper Urban Garden...I just love that paper! I also decided I needed to break out my build-a-brads again, as they have been neglected for a little while! I really love them, and need to remember that they are on my stamp table just begging to be used! It was kind of nice to make something other than a Christmas card, although I love all my Christmas papers and will be sad to see them retire!! I have soooo much left....need to find some projects to use them all up!! So, I am off to blurf and then hopefully stamp some more thank you cards. Here is the recipe - thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Hi all!!! Well, today is Tony's birthday so I am making him a homemade lasagna and his whole family is coming over to help celebrate!!! He told me not to make a fuss, but I think he is secretly pleased that I am, lol! So, a quick post today! I wanted to share this cute treat box I made for my hostess of my workshop last night (it went very well, they were wonderful ladies!) Now, this idea is not my original idea, but when I saw Angie's tutorial a couple of months ago, I knew I had to make one!! That girl is a pure genius, I tell ya!! If you have never been to her blog, you really are missing out, she makes such wonderful things and she is sooooo creative!! This cute little box uses the Top Note Die with the Big Shot - just love how versatile this die is!!! It came together very quickly and then I decorated it using some of my favorite winter embellishments to include my Felt Flurries of course!!! I am working on coming up with a way to use these after Christmas is over....I just love them! And, I added some bling in the center with the ice square green rhinestone brad. The closure for this box is made using Jumbo Eyelets , which if you know me at all, know this is my all-time favorite embellishment! The inside of this cute little box holds small candy bars, or little single chocolates, which is what I used here. Yummy little Reeses, who can resist those? My hostess absolutely loved this and the rest of them really wanted her to share, lol!! This last picture is of the side of the box so you can see what it looks like all closed up. I love this and already have plans to do something with this for Valentines, it's too cute not to!! I will leave you with the recipe, then I am off to make lasagna AND a homemade chocolate chip coconut cake - YUMMY!!! Have a wonderful weekend! And, stop by tomorrow, and I will share the project we did for my workshop!

Happy Friday!!! I REALLY look forward to Fridays now because Tony comes home - WHOOHOO!!! However, tonight I won't see him until late since I had a previous workshop already booked for tonight - but he understands!! I have shifted my schedule around so I don't teach classes and hold workshops if I can help it while he is home. Although sometimes I have to since it IS the weekends and that is sometimes the only time people can do them. He is such a great guy though....never complains about it, and is very supportive!!! Okay, I know you did not come by to hear my ramble, you want to see my Stamp Something card!! Well, this week's challenge is sponsored by our very own Denise, who is the new, proud owner of Whymsy Stamps! She challenged us to stamp something Red, Green, and Gold. I decided that in honor of Denise, I would use one of her adorable new stamps - they are soooo cute!! Check this guy out - how can you resist? I decided on a non-Christmas card, I am all done making mine, have mailed them all, and wanted to do something else - LOL! So, I made a card for my husband! I watercolored my little frog, and then added some Iridescent Ice to his lily pad and to the hearts. Here is a closeup of the image so you can see his sparkle! So, how about checking out what the rest of the DT gals did this week - just head on over to Stamp Something and check it out!! You know it's always worth it, everyone of those ladies have super mad talent! And, why not try the challenge for yourself? There is always a drawing for blog candy, and besides, it's fun!!

I will leave you the recipe - I am off to finish the last preps on my hostess gift (will share tomorrow), and then clean the house! Busy day again!

Hi all!!!! Another busy day for me today - I have kits to cut for a class AND a workshop I have this weekend, but that is it until the New Year, WHOOHOO!!! I am taking the rest of the time off to spend time with my son when he comes on Tuesday, and my mom and sister when they arrive the following week!! But, first, I am going to share with you the card I made for this week's sketch at Tamara's!! I kept it pretty simple but I still think it turned out okay!! This is a great sketch, very versatile, and I am sure I will be playing with this one again. Make sure you hop on over to Tamara's site to check out what the rest of the DT did for this week's challenge! And, why not try it yourself? If you do, remember to upload to the site so we can all see it!! I gotta run so if anyone has questions about anything on this card, just holler!! Smooches!!!

December 10, 2008


Hi all!!!! Well, yesterday was a very busy day, but also a very productive one!!! Car washed, hair cut, Christmas shopping done, tree decorated, baked cookies, mailed out all my Christmas cards....Whew!!! But, I felt good about it even though I had no stamp time!! However, I thought I would share some of the pics I took of the kids as they decorated the tree last night!! I was trying to keep it very upbeat since their dad was not there, and for the most part, I succeeded!! We laughed, looked at all the ornaments, remembered when we bought/made certain special ones, and then I gave them their ornament from me for this year. And, instead of me doing all the hanging of the ornaments, I let them decorate the whole tree by themselves with me just watching and taking pictures!! We had such a good time! And, Kayla and Tyler were actually being nice to each other, which is a welcome change from the norm - LOL! And, look how nice the tree looks! (well, a bit bare since there is nothing under it yet, lol!) They really did a great job! Here are some fun pictures of the two of them - they crack me up! They were posing and dancing all around with each other in their silly hats. Here is a sweet picture of the two of them, I just love how this one turned out and can't wait to have it blown up and scrapped!! And, not to feel left out, Cisco wanted in on the action so we gave him a hat too and he offered to shake my hand - too funny!!! He is such a cutie, even if he is getting to be an old man at 11!! The kids would not let me get away with not having my picture taken, so here is one of me with my new do! Now, be honest and tell me what you think!! I went for a totally new look, and even had my highlight colors changed to a much lighter shade. I was starting to feel like I looked old and tired, and not very attractive so I thought a new look might make me feel better! I really like it and the kids seem to like it, I just hope Tony does, lol!!! Well, that's it for today - I am off and running with a TON of errands, but I really hope to fit in some stamping time today. I hope everyone has a fabulous day, and I promise to stop by and visit later on!

December 9, 2008


Hi all!! Well, another busy week ahead, as I am sure it is for most of us!! I have soooo much to do to get ready for Christmas! My son comes home a week from today - WHOOHOOO!!! I cannot wait to see him, the last time I did was for the 4th of July!!! I cannot wait to spoil my baby!! Can I still call him that since he is almost 20??!! Heck, I am going to, LOL! So, I am going to share the gifts I made for the teachers - there is chocolate involved so I figured I am good, right? *wink* I made these cute little tins, and wrapped the chocolates to match the dp I used on the outside. I know a lot of people make these, and now I see why, they are easy and FUN! I used rub-ons for the tags, love them!!! And, of course SU! yummy winter dp, who can resist that?! The chocolates are assorted chocolate treasures made my Hershey and should be illegal!! So, I made three of these - and then I will put together some cute little gift bags for them to go in - and maybe a matching card too! Here are the other two tins, they are all different, but all use the rub-ons and yummy dp!! I will leave you the recipe and then I am off to get my hair done - whoohoo!! I need a haircut sooooo bad!!! Tony asked me to please not get it "butched" - I think he is remembering how short my hair was when I went to Iraq - lol!!! Have a wonderful day all!!!

Hi all!!! Whew! VERY busy weekend, taught two classes, went to a birthday party, did the decorations, and waved goodbye to Tony until next weekend!! So, not much stamping BUT I do have another scrapbook page to share that I did at my recent crop - I love how it turned out! We drove up to Boreal which is a couple of hours from our home, and we went skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing - it was sooo much fun!! Well, Kayla is a HUGE fan of the snow and wanted to make snow angels. She was sooo cute, I just hat to take her picture!! I decided on non-traditional winter colors for this page, drawing inspiration from her snow pants and jacket. I cut a giant scallop out of my designer paper using a die cut machine at my LSS - I love it!! And, I punched small circles out of the same paper and placed them randomly all over the page, trying to give it a snow effect!! The letters are Creative Memories glitter letters, and they are really pretty and add a lot of pop to the page!! I also added some cute snowflakes, and hot pink and white dotted ribbon - love it!! Some Scallops to frame the picture, and done!!! Very simple page, but I think it turned out cute!! I hope you all like it too!! Today is errand day, then hopefully some time to stamp this afternoon!!! And, I have to catch up on my blurfing!! Have a fabulous day!!

December 6, 2008


Hi all!!! Today is going to be sooo busy but really fun - I have two classes today, so I will be stamping my little heart out for six hours straight - well, teaching stamping anyway, lol!!! But first, I wanted to share with you this layout I did of Kayla last Christmas morning. Like you all, I take a lot of pictures (well, I am guessing you do!) and Kayla was getting tired of me taking pics of her, so she gave me this face - but then ended up cracking up!! Well, I caught the look on camera and could not help it, I had to scrap it!! Isn't she just sassy!!! No stamping on this, but I did use my GIANT felt flurries, which I love and are perfect for scrapbooking! I had such fun putting this page together - the deer is a die cut made from naked chipboard. I covered him in Cinnamon glitter, used a little piece of gold trim, and added a small silver bell -isn't he cute??!!! Here is a closeup so you can see him better! Also, notice that I laced all around the edges of my dp with ribbon? I just love how this turned out, really made the page soft!! I cut the title out of red glitter dp using my Cricut winter cartridge - the letters are really fun, if you look at this closeup you can see that the letter A is a tree, and the letter H is actually two little snowmen holding hands! The picture is mounted on Pink Pirouette card stock and I used one of my designer corner punches to mount it. Then, a little bit of pink polka dot ribbon and done!!! I had such a good time putting this page together - I hope you like it!!! Now, off to finish getting ready so I have some time to blurf later - LOL! Enjoy your weekend!!!

December 5, 2008


Happy Friday!!! I am so excited, my husband will be home tonight for the weekend!!! Whoohoo!!! Of course, I am teaching two classes (scheduled before we knew he was leaving) so he is going to take the kids Christmas shopping while I do that! So, today is the day for Stamp Something and the challenge today is Snow Somethings - perfect, don't you think??!! I decided to make a clear card - you know, out of clear card stock (yep, I found some!) and use some of my fabulous Old Saint Nick rub-ons, available in the Holiday Mini. The inside of the card there is a piece of Bashful Blue card stock which I stamped my snowman on - and you can see him through to the front where all the snowflakes are!! I added some silver mini eyelets to the center of my snowflakes to add some pop, and trimmed the front of my card a little shorter than the back so I could adhere my scalloped and stamped card stock to the front. Then, ribbon, a pretty brad, and done!! Well, what do you think? I am quite happy with it - and it is in the mail today, lol!!! So, if you want to see what the rest of the DT did, head on over to Stamp Something and check it out, they are soooo very talented!! And, why not try the sketch yourself? Just upload a link to your project so we can all look AND you can get entered to win some yummy goodies!!! So, I am off to run a few errands, and cook a nice meal for tonight!! Enjoy your weekend ladies, I will see you tomorrow for Scrapbook Saturday when I have a really cute layout to share!!!

Hi all!!! Well, I am steadily getting the rest of my Christmas cards done....I am hoping to get them all in the mail this week!! I used Cardinal Christmas set on this card, I just love how pretty this stamp is. The dsp is not Stampin' Up! because all the rest of it that I have is going to be used in my two classes this weekend and my two workshops next week - sheesh, I am going to be busy!!! I love it though!! I also did not add too many embellishments to this one (although I was tempted to!) because I don't want it to be bulky when I mail it. So, a little bit of stitching and a little bit of ribbon will have to do!!!! Today I am going to be super busy taking care of household chores and errands...I have been letting them go and now I need to get to them!! I sure hope to find some stamping time this afternoon though!!! Enjoy your day!

Love him always, I mean!! This card I made for my husband who is totally the love of my life, my best friend, my soul mate!! I not only love him, I like him, which I think is pretty important!! He started his new job yesterday which will require him to be away from home Monday through Thursday and I miss him already! Yes, we talk on the phone about ten times per day, but it's not the same!!! It will take some getting used to...this new schedule....but it's not forever!! So, I decided since he was on my mind, that I would make him a little card and slip it into his truck when he comes home as a surprise!! I used Taylor's sketch challenge for this card, although I did flip the sketch on it's side because it worked better for me!! I also decided to ink up this cute little owl who has been sadly neglected since I got him - I can't believe I never used him before, he is so sweet!! I will be in my craft room for most of the day today (yippee!) working on projects for the Coconut Scrapshop Holiday Hooplah and some other things I have up my sleeve, so I will leave you the recipe! See ya tomorrow!

Hi all!!! Today starts the first day of Holiday Hooplah at the Coconut Scrapshop!! Every day there will be a new challenge posted and fabulous prizes awarded for the winners!! Then, three semi-finalists will be chosen to compete in one final challenge and THAT winner will be our GDT member for the month of January AND receive a FREE kit!!! WHOOHOOO!!!! So, I am in charge of the first challenge and I thought I would share my project here!! I challenged everyone to make a 3d holiday gift item with matching card. Now, I have shared the card with you all, but not the gift idea, so I am sharing that with you today!! This is a little box made out of coasters and held together with ribbon. It turned out super cute, and will be a gift for my daughter's teacher this year. I made the holes with my Crop-a-dile, used sticky tape to adhere the dsp to the coasters, and then a really strong glue to hold the entire box together. I also used my giant Felt Flurries and added some bling to the center - I just love these things and have made great use of them for holiday gifts and cards this year! Here is a picture of the side of the box so that you can see how it actually is "sewn" together by the ribbon. You can either lace your ribbon up the sides or tie individual pieces of ribbon through each pair of holes - I chose to lace each side up with alternating colors of grosgrain ribbon. Here is a picture of the box from the top so you can see what is inside! I placed a cello bag full of chocolates inside the box, and added some fun festive shredded paper to give it some fun holiday flair! I know Kayla's teacher will love this - I mean, who doesn't love chocolate, right?!! So, that is my sample for the challenge - want to play along? Just head on over to the Coconut Scrapshop, and to the Message Board and you will see the thread for Holiday Hooplah!! Not registered?? No problem - it's easy and it's FREE!!! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see some of you come over and play!! Here is the recipe for my box - have a fantabulous day!

Hi all!!! Well, I hope everyone who went shopping yesterday got all the deals they were looking for - I did :-)! Very happy although I did not get my shopping all done so I will be back out there during the week since I want to be done!!! It has gotten cold here so I thought I would share this layout I did a few days ago depicting our beautiful snow-covered landscapes in the mountains - you may recognize one of the pics as the header on my blog! The layout of this page was actually done using Pamela's sketch from over at the Coconut Scrapshop - she is a fellow DT member and a very talented gal, so swing on by her blog if you get the chance!! She stamps and scrapbooks fabulously! Now, I want you to know how excited I was to FINALLY get a chance to use some of the HUGE Felt Flurries - they are sooooo fun to play with!!! I love the layering effect and how pretty they look! I also used a few of the smaller one and added some fun buttons!! The middle of the large ones have silver snowflake brads I had in my stash. I also did some sewing on this layout, around the edges of the half-circle. And, I stamped little snowflakes all over my white thickers letters in Bashful Blue ink! Here is a close-up so you can see how they turned out! This was a really fun page to do - and I love that we are surrounded by this beauty where we live!! Well, I am off to a scrapbook crop tonight, whoohooo!! I can't wait, I need some time with some other gals chatting, and scrapping for my own personal enjoyment!!! Have a fabulous weekend and I will be back tomorrow with a fun project to share!!
