Lyla’s Notes…

So when “the littles” were here a week ago and we were playing in the studio, Lyla saw the notecards I posted yesterday and mentioned she’d like some notes of her own.

So this is what happened…


If you ask Lyla what her favorite color is, she will tell you “magenta”.  Seriously?  These colors aren’t magenta by any stretch, but she will like the ombre effect achieved with these colors.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits on these little “Lyla Notes”…


  • Paper:  3 1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White notecard, plus heavy weight Whisper White cardstock and Crisp Cantaloupe.
  • Ink:  Watermelon Wonder, Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe and Blushing Bride, plus Memento Black
  • Stamps:  Epic Alphabet, Layered Letters Alphabet and Tin of Cards
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  None


  • The Crisp Cantaloupe layer is 3 3/8″ x 4 7/8″ attached with adhesive to the 3 1/2″ x 5″ notecard
  • The Heavy Weight Whisper White cardstock is 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″
  • Everything in Memento Black was stamped first and heat dried to be sure it wouldn’t smudge.
  • The different colored rectangles were stamped last.
  • The stamped layer was put on the card front with Tomboy because it is heavy and I wanted to be sure it stayed put.
  • You can see the envelope has a coordinating letter in the corner.

I sure hope she is excited when these arrive in her mailbox.  Kids LOVE to get mail…

Things here in the studio are chaotic to say the lest…lots of projects on every surface getting ready for two classes and convention.  It’s all good stuff though…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


Hope that made you smile…

Get those fingers inky…Be HaPpY!



Monogram Notecards….

Around this time of the year, notecards for thank you’s are very much in demand.  For the grads, and the brides…a must have.

So here’s an idea for you to gift those you know who will be needing to say “thank you”.


This is one of my personal stash…I can never keep enough thank you cards on hand.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Whisper White and Bermuda Bay cardstock, 3 1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White notecard
  • Ink:  Pool Party, Pear Pizazz, Old Olive and Memento Black
  • Stamps:  Your Perfect Day, Sophisticated Serifs and Sheltering Tree (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Basic Pearls, Itty Bitty Flower Punch


  • Whisper White 3 1/2″ x 5″ notecard
  • The Bermuda Bay layer is 3 3/8″ x 4 7/8″
  • The Whisper White layer is 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″
  • Punch out the three flowers in Bermuda Bay, push with blunt end of piercing tool to curl, add Basic Pearl and set aside
  • Attach Bermuda Bay layer with adhesive
  • Stamp wreath once in Pear Pizazz and again slightly offset in Old Olive on Whisper White layer
  • Stamp initial in Pool Party and leaf in Pear Pizazz in center of wreath
  • Stamp sentiment in Memento Black at bottom 1/4 of layer
  • Add punched flowers to wreath with glue dots and Whisper White layer to front of card with adhesive.

Once you get these going, they really go together fast.  These really make a thoughtful gift.
