Cards from the weekend

Here are all of my cards from my stamp-A-Stack, plus a few more things.

How Cute are these lil guys! I saw these fish in a magazine and couldn't resist making them! Super cute! I use the Delightful Decorations stamp set and the coordinating punch.

This was my attempt to make a Boyish card. I didn't like it at first, but now that I think about it, its kinda cool.

I used a stamp set out of the Sale-A-Bration catalog for this card along with an oval punch to make the vase.

This little thing can be used to hold a little note for someone or can be used to put a gift card in.

I got hooked on all of these cute litte Aligator purses that I kept seeing on other blogs, so I wanted to test it out. It was tricky at first but I got the hang of it. Here is my first creation. More to come...

Today I had my first workshop! It was such a great afternoon and quite a learning experience for me! There were 6 awesome ladies and a whole lot of cards! Aside from all of the glue on the fingers and ink on the hands, I think it was a success. (or at least I hope it was) I went to post pictures of everything, but when I went to grab my camera the battery was dead. So I plugged it in and will have to post tomorrow. Thanks again everyone! I will see you on Sunday at Kathy's! Get ready for the cute flower pot!

New Stamps Today!

Today my order from the Occasions Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Catalog came in!! I have so many stamps that I just don't even know where to start! I wanted to post a few quick things today before I went to bed.

Here is a CUTE heart bag. This was actually a lot bigger that I thought it would be. But I absolutely loved it! And the paper too!! It is the DSP from the Mini and all of them have Glitter on them!

These two cards are little 3 X 3 cards.

The last two cards will be part of my Stamp-A-Stack o January 24th!

A few projects

I saw something like this and thought it might not be too hard to make. I printed off all of the months and put it inside card stock. It's not the greatest of presentations but I was a little tired. This is just my trial for when all of my new fun stuff comes in this weekend. It is the size of a normal card too. I put two brads at the top of the white calendar pages and then attached it to the card stock with tacky tape.

Isn't this super cute! It is made up of 12 little boxes from the Matchbox Die cut. I just tacked on a top and bottom and called it good! I have it on my desk and put all of my brads inside each drawer.

I forgot that I had this picture from Christmas. It is a gift card holder that I found off of my one of my favorite Blogs Inking Idaho. With different paper it can be use for any occasion.

V-Day is just around the corner!

Now that Christmas is over, I thought that the next thing to work on would be a Thank You card. Obviously I didn't get very far because I only made one set. I used my new faves, Rich Razzelberry and Melon Mambo (along with Old Olive) and the Circle Circus Stamp set.

My other creation was Valentine's Day inspired. Inside the box are 5 mini Valentines day cards. The set is retired I think, but it was the only thing I had to work with at the moment. I need to find a nice background to work with, so for now, its just my floor :-)
