March Paper Pumpkin Alternative gift cards



I am loving these March 2016 Paper Pumpkin stamps. They are so sweet. I case'd this adorable 3x3 gift card. I'm using the about to expire SU! In Colors for these. I also gave them a flick of gold Wink of Stella for a little more cuteness. 



Then I decided to make matching envelopes, using up more expiring products, the DSP stacks.

I love these cards. They will be so cute to add to gift bags. Super quick to create but they have a big wow factor.

Disneyland 50th birthday trip pics



Since I have nothing creative to share just yet, as I have just returned from an epic 50th birthday trip with my mom, I will share some of the fun pictures from Disneyland.



Here we are sitting on the porch on Main Street. There was actually a couple of gentlemen sitting here who offered to vacate so we could snap a quick pic. One of them was wearing a button that said Porch Potato. It's a real thing there. I wish I was close enough to visit the park that often and earn the title Porch Potato.



The park is dressed up in its party finest.



Perfect ending to a perfect first day. Shared with 10,000 of our closest friends.



Beautiful Carthay Circle Restaurant in Disney California Adventure.



Cooling our heels in the lounge, waiting for our lunch reservations. By the way, every single thing about this restaurant is AMAZING!!! Ambiance, decor, cast members and the food. Oh the food!!! Such an amazing meal.



So much fun having a chat with Fifi the Photographer. Sweet, sweet lady. (Wow, I just noticed the background. No other guests. That is deceiving because the park was pretty busy.)



We Uber'd (that's a verb now, right?) from our time share right to the front doors of Disneyland Hotel. What an amazing time saving and inexpensive plan that was. It cost $6.25 plus a little tip, and saved us walking from the shuttle area, through the security check points, all the way down through Downtown Disney to the hotel on the complete opposite end. Not that I don't love walking the entire length of Downtown Disney, just not when we have reservations so I can't dawdle and shop. We enjoyed an AMAZING breakfast at Steakhouse 55. I highly recommend this restaurant. Another location that feels like an event just by the ambiance and decor. But the food was so delicious and the price shocked me at how reasonable it was. Be sure to add it to your to-do list next time you visit Disneyland. You will not be disappointed.



Back at my favorite place on the planet. Home sweet home.



Love, love, love this sweet nostalgic ride.



Good bye for now, Walt! Thanks again for a fun filled, amazing visit. I already can not wait to be back here again.

Honeycomb Happiness cards


I designed this card after this beauty, for a SU! Stamp-A-Stack class. I used the adorable SU! Honeycomb Happiness set, some neutrals DSP and some embossed resist paper. I water colored the chickadee in SU! Blushing Bride and cut her out so I could mount her directly over a second image stamped on the card stock circle. Lots of sponging and a little sequins action and she is properly blinged up and ready for giving. 



I had a few pre-cut sets left over after class so I played around with different layouts and stamps.

Balloon Celebration birthday cards



These cute birthday cards where inspired by this pinned beauty. I shrank the card base and upped the balloon count. The card base is 4.25 x 4.25 intentionally. With the balloons extending upwards past the fold line they will still fit into a standard A2 sized envelope.

I always love a project that allows me maximum washi tape usage. This fit the bill. I used tons of different selections from SU!. I stamped with SU! Balloon Celebration set in Momento Tuxedo Black ink on various card stock and punched out the balloons with the coordinating punch.

Sketch challenge card


A sketch challenge card I created. I used SU! English Garden DSP, Melon Mambo and Blushing Bride card stock and 1/8th inch Melon Mambo ribbon on a Vintage Faceted button and a portion of a doily. The Crushed Curry polka dots on the background were made using the stamp from SU! Garden in Bloom set. The sentiment is from SU! Greatest Greetings set.

Sketch challenge in SU! Birthday Bouquet DSP



This card was created for a sketch challenge. I decided to let the GoRgEoUs paper do all the hard work on this baby. This is SU! Botanical Blooms paper and I love every single thing about it. The color combinations, the soft watercolor feel, its just perfect. I did stamp the sentiment and the card base, then layered all the dsp designs on SU! Blushing Bride card stock and embellished with a twine bow and some glitter paper punched circles. Depending on what sentiment you put inside it could be a beautiful birthday, mother's day, thinking of you....anything really, card. 




This is what happens when I have scraps of beautiful papers sitting on my work space. I love when something that might have been tossed into the trash can be used for something beautiful. Simply darling.

Washi note card gift set



These cards are perfect to me. Such a simple way to make an elegant note card. Who am I kidding? I love these because they USE AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF BEAUTIFUL WASHI TAPE.

I case'd this gorgeous card  here, first. But as is my way, I couldn't stop at just one. And I do have a crazy amount of gorgeous Washi Tapes in my stash. So off I went. 




Some twine, some epoxy dots colored with any form of coordinating alcohol markers and this is now a fun set of note cards to gift to someone. I do believe I am going to need to make more of these. Many more.
