Tasty Flowers & Bugs

Adorable, edible bugs and flowers ;o) MMM!!!

Another creation shared from the creative studio of my darling downline, LuAnn.

When she was over stamping a few weekends ago she had asked me for input on coming up with a movable 'door' for the back of the treat cups, so they can be enjoyed by the recipient, filled again and regifted. We came up with a slick fix for that so it appears as tho she has been super creative and busy ;o) YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for shaing LuAnn!!!

Purses! Purses!!!

A few days ago I posted the purse that I had so lovingly CASED from my darling downline, LuAnn, during our stampin' weekend.

Welllll, she has been creative in her studio ~ taking inspiration from my CASED inspiration of her own and came up with THIS! (Did you follow all of that?! lol)

LuAnn used Dusty Durango sponged with Chocolate Chip and of course Michelle's (2stampis2b) Shimmer Spray technique.

Soooo awesome LuAnn!! Soo glad you shared with me ;o) We need to get together again before all of this snow melts!!!

Stampin' Weekend ~ Continued....

The moment I spotted this idea on SCS I knew I needed to try it! I had the SU! file folders on hand already as I thought they were just adorable and would be fun to use in my home office! So what a perfect idea it was to use the rest this way ;o)

Here is the link to the step by step tutorial from SCS if you'd like to make some too! No stamping involved here since the folders are already decorated!!!

Stampin' Weekend ~ Continued....

Can you say adorable??? This cute purse idea came from my team member, LuAnn, during our stampin' weekend! I just had to CASE it ;o)

Just to make this one a bit more 'rittizer' I did Big Shot emboss my purse pieces and I applied a clear finish to the front and back of the purse by using the clear embossing powder. The top part, or the flap, is a piece of card stock vellum Big Shot embossed, sponged with chocolate chip ink and then Shimmer Sprayed (ohh lala ~ Thanks Michelle!)

I used a 1/2 piece of velcro to hold the flap down right under my 'button like embellies' and added the fun brad and ribbon to the side vs. a traditional purse strap for something fun and different.

This would be great for holding money or a gift card for a special occassion!

Stampin' Weekend ~ Continued....

I just loved this idea the second I saw it! How simple, yet elegant! Thanks to fellow stamper Debbie Naylor for sharing her idea!

I used the SU! Card Stock Vellum and Big Shot ~ I love love love these!!
Oh and in the very last picture, on the back card I tried the 'shimmer spray' technique from Michelle Tech (2stampis2b) on the vellum --- ohhh ahhh ;o)

Stampin' Weekend ~ Continued....

This is such a fun technique to do with white shimmer paper, your reinkers and a spray bottle of water ;o)

Adding the beads as the frosting to this one was fun!!

My nephew Jack and I recently took a trip to AZ to visit Grandpa and Grandma for a few days...oh the fun we had! Here are a few snapshots of our trip that included flying in a big plane, the zoo and swimming!!!

Just as our plane touched down back at home Jack asked me if I would make him another countdown calendar...I asked him what we were going to countdown and he suggested 'oh maybe Florida'.....lol!

Telling Grandpa and Grandma WERE COMIN'!!!

Zoned out with a drink, snack and a cartoon ;o)
