Here is the welcome sign and favors that I created for our Stamp Camp that we are having today. For the favors, I used the Scallop Envelope die, Fun Flowers die, Perfect Polka Dots textured impressions folder, & Little Leaves sizzlits die. Most of the same dies were used for the welcome sign but I also added in some butterflies that I cut out with the Beautiful Wings die. I hope those of you who attend our Stamp Camp today will be inspired to create, meet some new friends, and have lots of fun! Until next time...

How come no one ever told me that this cricut cartridge would be so addicting? LOL! After making the turtle in my last post, my other daughter asked me to make a lion. This is what I came up with. Hmmm... I wonder what my other daughters will ask me to make next? I hope you all enjoy your weekend! I'm looking forward to mines.

Just like the title of my post, I finally dusted off my cricut to use the Create-A-Critter cartridge that one of my daycare parents gave me for Valentine's day (thank you Kris)! It took me a while to choose which animal to cut out first, but I decided to ask my girls and my 7 year old chose the turtle. I couldn't believe how easy it was to cut and put together this turtle. What's even better is that this card was made using only scrap card stock, dsp, & ribbon. Happy Wednesday!

Here are some punch art checkbook covers and photo holders that I created for our upcoming Stamp Camp. Punches are another one of my favorites tools to use when creating a project. There are so much things you can create with a punch! The frog punch art is new and was inspired by my daughter's kero keroppi figurine. The other punch art are old time favorites of mines. Please enjoy your weekend!

Here's some birthday cards that I created using some retired DSP and stamp set. Can you tell I love using my textured impressions embossing folders? I like to incorporate them into all my projects. If you haven't given these a try, you should. Trust me, you won't be disappointed! Have a great day!

I decorated these boxes and filled them with candy for my girls to give their hula sisters and for my hubby to give his co-workers. The stamp set is called Greeting Card Kids. The boxes that I used are actually from the Candy Countdown Calender Kit that SU was selling in their Holiday Mini catalog. It was one of those things that I bought with the intention to use it for Christmas and then forgot... lol! At least I found another use for these boxes instead of them sitting around for another year.
I decorated these boxes to give to some of the teachers at my girls' school. I used the big shot die to make these boxes and used the same stamp set. These boxes were filled with sweets and a decorated post-it note. Happy Valentine's Day!

I dusted off my build-a-bear die and decided to create these cuties... BAB meets punch art! LOL! After putting these bears together, I added them to some notepads that I had covered previously. Wishing you all a fabulous weekend! Take care and be safe!

Some of you were wondering about what I would create using the paper flowers my daughters helped to make. I decided that we would use them to decorate some post-it notes. Of course I couldn't resist using my embossing folders for the background. Happy Wednesday!

My hubby came home one day of a sample of a "swing" card (I think that's what you call it). I decided that I wanted to give it a try, but also include a pocket in the back to hold a gift card. This is what I came up with. I used one of my new SAB stamp sets to decorate the card and added a punch art monkey to the front. Hope you all enjoyed your weekend! The days went by too quickly... it doesn't seem like we just had a weekend... lol!

I created this cocoa box for our upcoming Stamp Camp this month. It is going to be up for grabs at our Silent Auction table. The peacock was created using the scallop circle dies, owl punch, itty bitty punches, & the 3/4" circle punch. I shaded the edges of the peacock's feathers using the sponge dauber and of course added lots of rhinestones! The dimensions for the cocoa box can be found here. Hope you all have a great weekend!

The first picture is of the sweet treat that Berenice sent me over the holidays. It took a while to reach me so she thought it was lost in the mail. She decided to send me another package full of treats, but low and behold, the first one finally arrived too. Thank you Berenice for the wonderful surprise! I really appreciate your thoughtfulness!
