This card was inspired by colors from the current stampin up catalog. I love certainly celery and any color blue. So This color combination is pretty but not pink... I like that! I also like pink... but now that I have a boy I am getting into blues and greens!

Cardstock: very vanilla, bashfull blue, certainly celery, not quite navy designer paper prints

Inks: not quite navy

Stamp set: A beautiful thing

Punches: 1 1/2 circle, round scalloped, medium oval (vanilla), trio flower, double circle punch (flower centers), scalloped edge border

Other: Paper piercing tool and mat/guide. I also used a white gel pen to fill in the holes I made in the scalloed edge. Not sure it did a whole lot put it added a little with the polka dot paper on top.

I am quite proud of this card. Not only did I complete it quickly but I did it on my own without CASEing another card! I am challenging myself to pick a color combo, stamp set, and create!!

I got a chance to get our last night and go to our stamp club event! It was nice to go and stamp! Crystal gave us a neat tip on how to use scrap pieces of ribbon... slip it into the middle of a knot and its so cute! Here is a card that I have been putting together for 3 days. I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with it and then finally I came up with this! I used mini clear beads on the center of the flower. The stamp set is called eastern blooms. Its a very versital set (in my opinion) I also used in colors from stampin up that were from last year (river rock, purely pomegranet, groovy guava)... but I love!

I will getting the new in colors soon!

Sweetest Day!

Hope everyone had a nice sweetest day! My husband forgot.... however its not a big deal since he don't acknowledge "Halmark Holidays" anyway. So this is the card I made for him.... we had a wedding to go to and it matched their wedding colors. Which seems to be a common color scheme right now. Anyway back to the card... I wanted to do a two color theme.... I think it came out pretty good! I also like the double fold with the hears on opposite sides when its open. This is unexpected which makes it kinda different! Chocolate chip and vanilla cardstock were used from SU. Along with the stamp set Always.

Have a great day...

OMG!!! This is too funny!

I discovered last night my son doesn't like bananas! We are working on introducing foods... (seemed early to me but doc suggested it) He LOVES to eat!

This face is priceless! (My husband makes the same face.... (not when he is eating) Typically when he doesn't agree with something... Its strange how much he looks and acts like my husband at such an early age..... I think I am in TROUBLE!!!

Just had to share this... more cards coming soon!

Card for a friend...

Card for the grandparents to be.... Yes... this is a pregnancy test! I have it on the inside of the card. Its from QuicKutz! However now a days they are quite technical and have a digital display that actally says "Pregnant" or I am assuming not pregnant if its negative. The only time I took one of the digital ones it came back pregnant and I dropped it so it didn't work again! So in this case the old test would have been better even if you dropped them they still had two lines (laughing) It was quite a shocking result for us.... and now we have Zachary!
Here are two cards I have made for a friend and her family! I like the stamp sets used here.... you grow girl and the beautiful prego lady is from All That Scraps. The little birdie card is stampin up. The paper set used was part of a scrapbook kit fromSU in an older catalog. I am working on getting some ideas together and figuring out how to create card sketches in Adobe and post them. I too often get caught up on dulpicating a card and lose sight of making it my own. So for me lately... picking a sketch and a color combination has been a lot of fun. I will share them with you once I get them all complete!

Happy Stamping!

Another scrapbook page!

This was the second two page layout that I completed when I was away for my mommy time! This is my favorite new saying "Mommy's New Little Man"! My son is really a momma's boy right now. He is with me 24-7 so he really has no other choice!

I dress him in all sorts of little man outfits! I hate how stores have so much more clothing for girls than they do for boys! Also having two girls and four generations of all girls in our family it is difficult to find cute boy stuff! So I make sure he has cute little outfits and plaid shits, matching hats and socks, matching blankets etc. Its not like I get to put bows in his hair..... which is a shame since he actally has hair and has more than my oldest daughter had!

I am working on some cards today and over the weekend so I will have some new cards to post! I got a really cool stamp set from Stampin Up called Always! LOVE IT!! Check back soon!
Just a note on how I did this page.... I used aquarius 4x8 alphabet dies from Quickutz and the rest was a really cool paper line that happened to match his shirt! Of course from Capture a Memory! I will need to look up the company name for the paper line and acryclic accessories!

QuicKutz!!! I LOVE THEM!!!

Ok... So I haven't had a lot of time to post but I finally was daring enough to leave our son with my husband for a few "mommy time" hours at my favorite local scrapbooking store Capture a Memory. I went to a Friday night crop and complete two layouts( I will post the second 2 page latout tomorrow!) .... I know it may seem like not much to get done in five hours.... but hey.... I completed them, got out of the house and these little animals take time to cut out. Also I kept losing their noses and spots! But it was so worth it in the end. Its adorable!!
The grass, vines, and all the animals are QuicKutz!

Thanks to the wonderful people at CAM!! I am in love with QuicKutz once again! You must check them out if you don't know what I am talking about.

I am also working on cards and can't wait to share them!!
