Just {Plane} Cute

I had a little spare time today after cutting paper for classes so I wanted to do something I rarely get to do for myself... Scrapbook!


I worked on some little boy pages that I will be able to fill easily with pictures. I used paper and Chipboard stickers from Creative Imaginations.



I also used "Thickers" for the lettering, ribbon, and lots of pop dots!
I am starting to get pretty handy with the craft knife. I was happy that these pages turned out just "plane" cute!

Copic marker sale!


I am offering a sale on the Copic set of 12 markers.
I use them alot for coloring my stamped images in my cards that I post. I love them because you can color without leaving all those streaky marker lines and you can blend colors together (which I am not that good at yet...)

The regular price for this set of 12 is $50.49
My sale price is $39.99

The perfect entry level marker- great color selection, lower price! Ciao markers feature a super brush nib on one end and a medium broad nib on the other. The alcohol based inks are permanent, non-toxic, low odor and acid-free. They will not damage paper when blending and layering colors and can be used on many surfaces such as paper, leather, wood, plastics and more. Ciao markers have a 3-year shelf life and are guaranteed for color consistency.


This set has 12 great colors to start your collection with. I have 3 sets in stock right now so just call or email me if you would like me to hold one of these for you.

Morning Meadow

I needed some quick and easy thank you cards to send out. Since the weather is supposed to be nice around here, I felt like making some spring colored cards.
I used the Pebbles Inc. duplicate stickers... perfect for card making! I also just got in some beautiful satin ribbon in a few colors. The paper was from SEI's Morning Meadow line and I used the matching buttons as an accent.

I dont know about you... but I've got a few little monsters at my house!

JustRite Graduate

I used the new JustRite stamper to make up some graduation cards ahead of time this year. I could have easily personalized the card with someones name, but I wasn't sure how many parties there would be this year.
I used the JustRite Celebration set and scalloped nestabilities for the focal point. Its hard to see in the photo but there is a black ribbon tied around the card. I may change the color of the ribbon to match the school colors later on.
The "class of" stamped in the center is an old, old Stampin Up set. I was trying to find a graduation cap but didnt have one handy.
