I couldn't resist putting my Stampin' Up Build-a-Bear in this picture. He's almost as cute as this 12x12 Spring layout. These pictures just don't do these pages justice. I used the Big Shot Scallop Circle dies, the new Butterfly Embosslit, Little Leaves Embosslit, The flowers are from the Eggcellent Egg Kit & a few are punched with the Boho Flower Punch. Soft Subtle brads are in the middle of the flowers. I also used pearls in the middle of the bigger butterflies & rhinestones on the smaller ones. The grass was punched with the Scallop Border Punch and cut to make it look like grass. The fence was made with the Jewlery Tag Punch. This design was inspired by Carla Brasher. These pages would be great to put your Spring/Easter/Wedding/or Baby pictures on.

Easter Brag Book with Sweet Pea DSP Butterfly Design

I just can't get enough of this Sweet Pea Designer paper. My Easter Brag Book Stamp Camp was a success. We had a fun time together making our beautiful books. There were a few different designs. I wish I would've taken a picture of each different one. This was the 2nd one that I did.  If you'd like the measurements you can email me.  Thanks for stopping by.

Join Big Shot Club-Budget Friendly

I know you have seen me using my big shot at classes, clubs, stamp camps and really wanted one for yourself but it may not be in your budget well I have the answer for you. I am offering the opportunity to get your own big shot on a budget sort of like layaway. Here are the details with two options.

The big shot comes with cutting pads, and platform for the $99.95


Textured Impressions Embossing folder of your choice (page 195), 2 dies that cost $19.95 of your choice (pages 196, 197, 199), Stampin Up backgrounds 1 (page 195) and ... A hostess stamp set, and... $15 in free merchandise (That's over $25 in FREE merchandise!!)


Fancy favor die (page 200) and Stampin UP backgrounds 1 (page 195) and...A hostess stamp set, and... $15 in FREE merchandise (That's over $25 in FREE merchandise!!)

TO JOIN the Big Shot Club, you must have three buddies (4 total ) or be willing to wait until three others sign up independently..

Here's how it works!

OPTION 1 sub total cost $159.75

Shipping $15.98

Tax $13.62

Total $189.35 divided by 4 = $47.34 per month per club member

OPTION 2 sub total cost $151.85

Shipping and handling $15.19

Tax $12.95

Total $179.99 divided by 4=$45.00 per month per club member

Club members take turns "hostessing" workshops and receiving hostess benefits. (You don't really have a workshop in your home, but we do the paperwork as if you had.) Each person gets the big shot and the dies, and the person "hosting the workshop receives the hostess benefits. At the end 4 months everyone has a Big Shot and several dies (depending on the option your club decides on), a hostess stamp set, $15 in free merchandise.

It sure took me a while to get this card figured out. I knew I wanted to do The Polished Stone Technique and I wanted to do a St. Patrick's Day card for my Stamp Group. I tried something new with my rubbing alcohol. Instead of putting the re-inkers on the glossy card stock and daubing with a cotton ball dipped in rubbing alcohol. I took my spray bottle that had the alcohol & Champange Mist Shimmer Paint mixed together and spritz that onto the glossy card stock that already had the Green Galore, Glorious Green, & Gable Green, & Gold re-inkers on it. I got it wet enough so that I was able to move the colors around the card stock. I had rubber gloves on and used my fingers to move the gold around. I spritz it some more and moved the colors around just by holding up the card stock and moving it to where I wanted the color. When I was happy with the design I stopped. I dried it with the heat gun and then sprayed it with Krylon clear coat and let it dry for an hour.  Then I used the Full Heart Punch and punched out four hearts to make a clover. I stamped the "Go Green" stamp in Glorious Green and then punched it out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch. I did marker around the edges of the circle & put a Gold Brad in the middle of the clover. Then I sponged green around the edges of the card and sponged (or you can stipple) the front. Add the rest of the paper. I used Green Galore cardstock & the Welcome Neighbor 6x6 paper pack. I also used the new border punch you can get for free from the Sale-a-bration catalog for placing a $50 order. Or you can have a workshop/catalog party with $300 in sales and earn it for free.
Thanks for stopping by!

I finally got my Simply Adorned Charm and necklace that I've been waiting for since Convention. Those of us that attended Convention got a discount on the 1 1/4" charm & the 21" chain.  I love to wear the long chains since I'm so tall so I got the 34" chain instead.  Since I still get the discount on the 21" chain I think that I'll still order that one too.  The charms are just beautiful!  Those of you who know me know that I can't stay away from the jewels or anything that sparkles.  So when I saw these in person I knew that I had to have one eventually. The Charm's open from the top where the clasp is. They're magnetic so they stay closed really well.  I used the paper insert as a guide to see where I wanted to stamp my image. I used the new Tiny Tags set from the Mini Ocassions Catalog. I did a little sponging with Old Olive on the edges & lightly with Razzleberry in the middle. There's a small Rhinestone at the bottom and 3 small dots of Crystal Effects with Dazzling Diamonds sprinkled on top.  I did the same design twice and put it on both sides. When I have some more time I'd like to do another design for the back side. The charm turns over easily so it really needs something on both sides.  I hope that you like my design. It even has my inital on it.
