Amazing Balloon Celebration

I am so in love with the font of the sentiment “celebrate” in the Sale-a-Bration set Amazing You. I’m foreseeing a LOT of Birthday cards featuring it! Sometimes I forget about the extra dies in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set, so when I decided on the banner in it, my eyes drifted onto the die that makes a row of circles. Perfect for that extra little pop of shine! This card makes me especially happy since it features the colors of my Alma Mater, Lakeshore Public Schools – Go Big Red!

Banner Blessings Sticky Note Calendars

Every time my stamping club, The emBOSSing Queens, meet, I like to give them a thank you gift. Each November, it inevitably ends up being something I can put a calendar on. This year is no exception! The hardest part, for me, is deciding on the sentiment to use. As I was looking through all my sets for an appropriate one that fits throughout the whole year, I happened upon Banner Blessings. I haven’t used it in a while, but it was a great fit for my club ladies. And bonus – you can score it for half price in the clearance section, while supplies last!  These are so quick and easy to make. It takes just 2 pieces to make the base – 4 ¼” x 11” and 4 ¼” x 5 ½”. I found the easiest visual online at:  http://www.cardcreationsbybeth.com/2009_11_01_archive.html

Candy Cane Christmas Bag Card

I apologize for the length of time since my last post. I was crazy busy putting samples together and getting organized for the Mystery Hostess Party I did last Saturday. Everyone seemed to have fun, so I will call it a success! One of the samples I made is this fun card that shows off the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. The Mini Treat Bag Thinlits are super fun – I love all the extra dies that come with it, including the banner and heart dies I used on the front.  With the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot, I was able to carefully center the heart die to cut the candy cane design just where I wanted it.  The Real Red Enamel Shapes from the Brights collection give it little pops of shine.  The top corners of the pull out card are rounded using the corner rounder punch on the top of the Envelope Punch Board. Sometimes we forget about those tools when they are tucked away. So glad I dusted it off for some of my recent projects!

Independence Day Celebration!

I just love the Fourth of July.  When my son was a baby, the movie Independence Day came out.  We were visiting friends in Escanaba, Michigan in the Upper Peninsula.  It was an awesome time and my little Marcus, just 9 1/2 months old, sat on my lap for the whole movie, mouth open, eyes wide, riveted to the screen.  Ever since then, I started the tradition that, after walking home from the July 3rd fireworks display in town, we all stay up and watch Independence Day.  Reminiscing, it started on a VHS tape…then eventually DVD…and now we have it on Blu-Ray.  We don’t get to sleep until around 2am, but I have a great time (and I hope the kids do, too).  So, to quote my favorite Patriotic movie, “Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!”
