Here Comes Peter…

Cottontail!  Yep, Easter is right around the corner and this little guy was made for a private party of friends coming next week.  This group has been friends for decades and I get to see them once a year as they celebrate their friendship with a stamping party here at the studio.

My question is … what should I get to fill the bunny?


Here’s her cottontail…

It happens…

My fingers are inky so you know I’m HaPpY!


Roomie Gifts…

Making a little special “something” for your roomies at convention is traditional.

today I’ll show you what I made for my roomies and later I’ll show you gifts I received.

Here’s one of mine…


“Sweetums” put the handles from the hardware store on for me.mmthen the new Timeless Elegance DSP was used to line the case with a little marker coloring on one of the designs. Mother case straps are Watermelon Wonder with stitching.mmthe postage stamps are retired but fit the project so I used them.

A little initial tag and and some pretty Watermelon Wonder Lace trim are added to personalize the gift.

ill show you the gifts inside in tomorrow’s post. Hope you will stop by.

New In-Colors…

I’m so excited to show you this piece today that showcases the new in-colors.  But I have to tell you this is totally CASED from Krista Frattin who is a member of the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team.

Take a look…


Doesn’t that just make you want every single color?  I’m not sure how she backed hers or put it together but I’ll give you directions on how I did mine.  I was just thinking this would be a great gift for someone who is in the hospital or ill rather than a bouquet of flowers.  Now my head is spinning off again.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits

  • A store bought frame with a 5 x 7 opening.  Save the glass to use as a palate for painting maybe.
  • Cut a 5 x 7 piece of cardstock for the base (I used Tip Top Taupe here) and stamp your sentiment.  The one here is from You Got This stamp set.
  • Get that Spiral Rose Die out and cut three flowers of each color.  I cut three at a time and it worked fine.
  • It had been a while since I “rolled a rose” but it came back to me.  You might want to do a little break down of the cardstock with your bone folder…just don’t get to energetic and tear your paper.
  • Cut 1 1/2″ x 5″ strip of four colors you didn’t use for the background piece and adhere to back piece you stamped with adhesive.
  • Hot glue your roses over corresponding color strip keeping them aligned a straight as possible.
  • Slip all the flowers inside your frame and enjoy!

I’m planning to keep this framed piece around for classes next month…then make a gift of it.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Tomorrow I’ve got some ideas for Father’s Day cards…

Get yourself inky…you will BE Happy!



Girly Birthday Favor…

You are only eight once…

And one of my “littles” (Lyla) is turning eight later this month.

So this happened…


And look what’s inside!…


Well…nothing yet.  But when she was here a couple of weeks ago, we went shopping one day (imagine that!) and she found these cute little BFF necklaces.  I’m thinking that would be perfect for her little girlfriends.  She’s having a painting party…won’t that be fun?

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you just incase you have a girly girl party coming up at your house…


  • Paper:  Blushing Bride, Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock plus DSP (here I’ve used Best Day Ever)
  • Ink:  Calypso Coral
  • Stamps:  None
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Scoring Board, 2 1/2″ Styrofoam ball, mini cup, leftover Easter Grass, Washi Tape, Sequin Pins (they are shorter) Itty Bitty Flower Punch, 2 1/2″ Circle Punch


  • Cut your 2 1/2″ foam balls in half.  I used a heated Styrofoam cutter.
  • Punch a 2 1/2″ Crisp Cantaloupe circle and hot glue to bottom of Styrofoam
  • Cut a 2″ piece of DSP and score every 1/4″ then fan fold.
  • Cut down the mini cup half way and hot glue DSP to side and where the seam meets.
  • Punch your flowers…between 70 to 75 and make a stack of several to sponge the edges with Calypso Coral
  • Cover the 1/2 Styrofoam ball using sequin pins.
  • Add a piece of Washi Tape to the lid and the cup for a hinge.
  • I may end up tying a ribbon from bottom to top to be sure the lid stays closed until the gift if opened.

It’s so much fun making these little surprises to make her day feel special.  Hope you are inspired to surprise a little one of your own.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

A Little Cup of Love…

Here’s a 3-D project we made in my classes this week that seemed to be a hit.  I know these are in a lot of places, but I first saw this little cup on Frances Martin’s blog and watched her video.


This little cup is actually 4 1/2″ tall and holds a nice amount of chocolate or whatever you’d like to place inside.  Perfect for Valentine’s or a luncheon.  Maybe tea and biscuits for someone who is ill.  I like this little 3-D project because it is versatile and only uses 1/2 of a 12×12 DSP sheet.  Would you like to have the Stuff ‘N Digits for this one?  Here you go…


  • Paper:  DSP (your choice)
  • Ink:  Calypso Coral and Pool Party
  • Stamps:  Build a Bouquet
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Calypso Coral Thick Baker’s Twine, Something Borrowed Embellishments, Washi Tape, Doily, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and 4″ Circle Framelit


  • The cup DSP is 6″ x 9″, scored on the 9″ side at every inch mark and on the 6″ side at 1 1/2″
  • Cut a 1/2″ x 7″ piece of DSP for the handle.
  • Two 1 3/4″ Circles Punched from coordinating cardstock.
  • One 4″ Circle of coordinating cardstock.
  • Burnish all score lines with bone folder.  The 1 1/2″ scored side is the bottom of the cup.  Cut out one rectangle on one side of the bottom.  Then cut from the bottom on each vertical score line to the 1 1/2″ score line to create tabs.
  • Use Fast Fuse or Sticky Tape on the side where you cut away the bottom rectangle and glue the other side of the cup to this side.
  • Now turn your cup upside down and place a dab of Tombow glue on one tab.  Fold the tab across from this one on top and add another dab of glue.  Keep turning down opposite sides and gluing until all tabs are glued.  Place glue on one of the 1 3/4″ circles and cover the bottom of the cup tabs.
  • Turn your cup right side up and glue the second 1 3/4″ circle to the inside of the cup for support.  Place something inside the cup to hold these layers together while drying.
  • Glue the doily to the 4″ circle and the bottom of the cup to these two layers.
  • Place Fast Fuze on opposite sides and ends of the 1″ x 7″ strip.  Place one end at the bottom of the cup and turn the top end under and attach to the side of the cup to create a handle for your cup.
  • That was easy right?  Now all that’s left is to create a pretty tag and tie it along with your embellishment piece to the handle.
  • A little tissue paper and some goodies and you’ve got a great little gift!

I hope you will be inspired to get some of that DSP out and give this little cup a try.  Always let me know if you have any questions….I’m happy to help.

So here is me today…


Yep…today is the beginning of the Sale-A-Bration deals and the launch of the new Occasions Catalog.  So many beautiful things in these catalogs…it just makes me want to dance like Snoopy!

Here is your “B-ism” for today…


Ah yes, my word for 2014.  I hope I was successful in doing just that.  My word this year is “courage”.  Wonder where this word will take me on my journey?

Today I’m inky…and HaPpY!






Close Ups…

Here are three more of the miniature art cards in the Christmas Framed project I posted yesterday.

Each of these tiny pieces of art measure 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.  They are pretty simple individually, but put together as a whole make a fabulous holiday decoration.

If you plan this project with a group, it becomes even more invaluable because it is connected to friends and sweet memories.

I thought I’d show the next three pieces today and follow with three more tomorrow.  Here are today’s three close ups…


Making this punch 3-D with the All Is Calm washi tape.  Add the tiny tag and you have perfection!


Silver glimmer paper makes everything sparkle.  More All Is Calm DSP and a little heat embossing.  Your art piece is complete!


Another beautiful 3-D piece using the Fun Frames Embossing Folder.  There are four layers to the poinsettia with dimensionals between layers and Crystal Effects covering all the petals.

If you are feeling inspired to give these miniatures a try, beware!  They are absolutely addictive…and so much fun!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Be sure to come back to see the rest of the close ups.

Here is your “B-ism” for today…


Definitely the cookies part!

I’m soooo inky today….and HaPpY!
