I stamped Marci three or four times and cut each layer of her tutu out and adhered it with thick glue dots so that it would give the tutu some dimension.

Whatcha Workin’ On Wednesday


The girls on our Stamping Scrapping Design Team and I have been talking about sharing photos of what we’re currently working on.  So, this is what my current project looks like……………….unedited, just for you!  ;o)


Yes, I have a bit of a mess in one corner of my room!  Some girlfriends & I are getting together to have a HUGE yard sale at my house on April 9.  It was originally supposed to be just three of us, but I think we’re up to at least 5, with potentially one or two others.  We’re going to have so much fun!!!  LOL

The plastic table and chair to the right of this photo is where my friend, Tina, sits when she comes over to scrapbook.  Melody sits at the table that butts up against this one.  This is where they sat the first time they came over and they just always go to that seat.  It’s quite funny!! 


We’ve even made our signs!!  We made three double-sided neon signs for the three entrances into my subdivision, seven more double-sided signs for the various turns to get from the entrances to my house and we did 3 double-sided signs to hang on the neon signs with my address and an arrow.  The cuts were made with my Cricut Expression and Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  We’re prepared!!! 

So, today (and for the next several days) I’m working on cleaning out what I’m going to get rid of.  NO!  The My Mind’s Eye paper and the two stacks in front of the JetMax cubes will NOT be included in the sale.  I can’t part with my MME papers!  LOL 

I’m going through every piece of loose paper and every other thing in this scraproom and cleaning out the things I don’t like, don’t want and/or things I’ll never use!  And as I’m cleaning things out, I’m organizing it in my cubes and labeling each cube so I can go to the appropriate drawer, pull out what I want and know exactly where to put it back.  So far, so good. 

So, what are YOU working on today??

Easter for 10, please…


I had an order come in yesterday from a lady asking me if I could make 10 Easter cards.  Her request was that they have an Easter Bunny and some eggs, so this is what I came up with.  All the layouts are the same, just slightly different papers.




Did you notice that fence?  It started out as a Martha Stewart Iron Fence Deep Edge Punch like this:

Iron Fence

I snipped the bats off and voila………a cute fence to put the bunnies behind!  I actually bought this punch (with a 50% off coupon, OF COURSE!!) to do just this.  I rarely do any cards or projects for Halloween, but it works perfectly for this!  :o)


This photo kind of shows the dimension.  I popped up the two bunnies on the left and right, but not the one in the center.  The fence and sentiment are popped up too. 

For this project, I used:

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have an awesome day!

SSCC - Sketch

For the current challenge at Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central our challenge is to use a sketch that Sheri created. 

I’ve done another CD cover for the photographer that I’m working with.  She does such a great job of capturing her subjects and this particular photo shoot is no exception!  When I saw THIS PHOTO on Kelli’s Facebook page, I knew I had to use it.  Isn’t that just the sweetest photo of a happy couple?  Awwwwwe!!!

Okay, so this is the sketch:

SSCC 2-28

And this is my CD cover:


I used Kelli’s photo, made it into a digital image and colored it with Copics.  I wasn’t terribly happy with the way his skin tone turned out, but Kelli said the couple liked it.  That’s what really matters, right?  :o)

For this project, I used:

Now……….what can YOU come up with for Sheri’s sketch?  Make sure you link up at Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central.  We can’t wait to see!!

Fight Club For Deer




This is totally NOT CRAFT RELATED, but I wanted to share this hilarious video with my friends and followers.  My husband shot this video out of our dining room window recently and I finally uploaded it to YouTube last night. 

From the looks of it, this deer is fighting with himself?  Pretending to fight with another deer?  IDK – but watch him and listen to my daughter in the background.  She’s such a mess!  LOL


Become a follower and leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  One lucky person (who leaves a comment AND becomes a follower) will win a little something from me!  ;o)
