Pink Elephants

A new line of paper from "My Mind's Eye" recently arrived, its called "Just Dreamy" and the cardstock is so pretty. They have tons of cute frames and embellishments to match. I have been wanting to use this Hero Art stamp set with the elephants and was inspired by this pretty pink gingham paper.


I stamped the elephant on the cardstock and trimmed very closely to make him look checkered. I used the Labels 1 Nestabilities to cut and emboss the background.

Recipe Box class

In this workshop we will be making a recipe box with dividers and recipe cards. We will be using the new JustRite stamp set to create the divider cards and even making our own stamped recipe cards too.

At a closer look you can see the front of the box has a little metal fork and spoon.

When you remove the lid there are 9 divider cards for separating your recipes.

We will also be stamping 9 recipe cards to get your box started. This box would make a great gift if you decide not to keep it for yourself, this is the season for bridal showers and engagements!

CLASS DATES:

Saturday, May 30th @ 11 am. (2 spots left)

Sunday, May 31st @ 1 pm. (2 spots left)

Wednesday, June 3rd @ 1 pm and 6 pm. ( 1 spot at 6 pm)

New stamps

New stamps have come in from Stampendous! I ordered new ones and reordered a few favorites too. This Changito stamp was originally a St. Patrick's Day one. I thought I would change it up a bit to keep him around all year...


Here is what I originally used him for...

He was too cute to store away until next March so I just placed a Prima flower over the shamrock.

Lime Rickey

Some of the new "Lime Rickey" Basic Grey papers and stickers are starting to arrive...

I loved these cute & funky birds, they go great with the stamped saying "a little birdie told me..." I have been using a lot of fat ribbon lately too.

Hang on to you


I was dying to play with this stamp so I figured I would work ahead on a Father's Day card for my husband. This little Changito actually reminds me of my youngest son Tyler, because he will hang on your leg just like that!
I love to make masculine cards because I can use cute embellishments like the brads that look like screws. Its hard to tell, but I used the plain rectangle nestabilities and embossed around the edge. It was difficult to refrain from using the scalloped Nestabilities!!
