This is the welcome sign that I created for our End of Summer Stamp Camp. I used the Scallop Square & Beautiful Butterflies dies to cut these out. I also used the Vintage Wallpaper textured impressions embossing folders.
These are the favors that I created to match my welcome sign. I used the Beautiful Butterflies die and the Perfect Polka Dots textured impressions embossing folder. My upline was saving these containers which used to hold some type of powdered drinks, but after removing the labels & washing them out, I filled them with M & M's instead. It was actually nice to hear feedback from a few guests saying that they have been saving these containers, but just didn't know what to do with them... until now. I'm so glad that I created something that inspired someone. Thanks for stopping by...

Here are the wonderful projects our guests got to make at this weekend's Stamp Camp. These projects were designed by Sonya, Naoko/Lorinne, Jane, & Jenn! Thank you ladies for doing a great job teaching everyone how to make these. Looking forward to our next Stamp Camp! Check back tomorrow to see the welcome sign and favors that I created for the Stamp Camp.

We held our Stamp Camp yesterday and it was great seeing everyone having so much fun doing what they love... crafting! I will share the projects that they did later this week, but for now I wanted to share these post-it holders that I made to sell at our camp. It is only now that I am noticing that I took these pictures before I added the mini pens... sorry. These were made with some stamp sets/punches that are both retired and current. Wishing you all a great work week!

Here is another mini recipe book that I created using some of my favorite recipes. I made these using some left over DSP and the SU set Tart & Tangy. Hope you all have a great weekend! I'm looking forward to seeing my fellow crafters at our Stamp Camp this weekend! Hopefully I'll get a chance next week to post the projects our guests will be making. Thanks for stopping by...

Here is another project that I've been seeing on several blogs. I finally got the chance to sit down and figure out the dimensions to make one. I kept the decorations simple since the area on top isn't very big. I decided to decorate them using the SU set Fox & Friends.

I decorated this post-it holder and photo album using my monkey punch art as the projects that I will be donating for our Stamp Camp this weekend. Each time we have a Stamp Camp, the demonstrators donate handmade items that are used for our Silent Auction. It is so much fun to see the excitement as the guest line up to bid on our handmade items.

I made more of these mini recipe books that I created a while back. Of course I didn't have the same supplies to create the exact same layouts so I changed it up a bit. Wishing you all a great weekend! Be safe!

Here's another project that I worked on last week. I created this box to be big enough to hold 3" x 3" scrap pieces of paper. I love the sentiment that I used... "friends are the family you choose yourself." Isn't that sweet? It comes from the retired SU set Small Sayings.

This weekend I was able to squeeze in some crafting time with my girls. Of course, they wanted to make Hello Kitty stuff... but then again, who wouldn't? Anyways, we made a couple of cards and decorated some SU boxes with the Hello Kitty that we cut out using the big shot. These were kept simple since my littlest one doesn't have much of an attention span yet and quickly found my paper snips and wanted to cut my cardstock instead. Have a great week everyone!

I created this mini easel card using an image that my niece drew. My niece is very talented when it comes to drawing and I wish her the best of luck as she begins college to major in graphic design.
Whoops, back to the card. The card measures 3-1/4" x 3-1/4". I wasn't really planning on making it that small, but I actually started off with the white scallop square that I had left over from another project. I worked my way around the scallop square and that is how the card evolved. Isn't it funny how things come together from one little thing? The sentiment that I used is from the SU set Petite Pairs. Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend!

Just a short post today. I saw some of these cute little butterfly post-its on several blogs (but I don't remember which one... sorry) and decided to give it a try too. They were really quick and easy to make using my die and big shot. Have a great day!

This wonderful bunch of goodies was sent to me by the fabulous Leanne! Look at how adorable her card, tag, and magnet is! I was so lucky to be paired with her last month. Now it's time for me to get started on this month's CATS set. The only question is... what should I make?

I can't believe it's been such a long time since I last posted. I guess you could say that life caught up with me and blogging (& crafting) was put aside... again. But I'm finally back to show you a little project that I was able to work on this week. I made these tags using various punches and the stamp set Every Little Bit. The to and from stamp is from the retired set Tiny Talk and the sentiment from the box is also from the retired set small sayings. I'm so happy that I have something to share with you today. Hope it inspires you to get crafting...
