Project Life coming soon!!!!


INTRODUCING PROJECT LIFE


We are so so so excited to let you know we've partnered with the amazing Becky Higgins to bring you the real deal-authentic Project Life products, now in exclusive Stampin' Up! colors and designs. If you've somehow missed the Project Life craze and are wondering what it's all about, we'll fill you in: it's a super simple, totally affordable way to get your photos into albums: you just slip your photos into Photo Pocket Pages and add designed cards. It's a back-to-basics approach to documenting your life. In a nutshell, it's all about spending more time making memories and less time scrapbooking them.

If you would like to learn a little more about it, click on the You Tube video below.

I have added the video once more in hopes that it actually works, this time.  If it doesn't, you can go to this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8r2VmVJ2Zk and check it out!!

FUNNNNNN....can't wait!!!  I may actually start scrap booking now!!

Have a great day and remember to take time to Paws N Stamp!!

Another Easter Bunny

Here is another Easter Bunny I made just this past week. I am usually good about
giving credit when I find a cute idea.  But, for the life of me, I can't remember, now, where I saw this.  It was basically a photo with some punches....and I had to figure out the punch sizes from the photo.

I love using the Top Note Die....I have made so many fun cards using this die. (the Leprechaun was one of them, last month) If you don't have the die....you NEED it....  :-)

I'll try to find time to do a tutorial later.

Like I said, in an earlier post, I have company.....so am spending time playing with her this week.

But, isn't this bunny cute???  I made 30 of him sitting in front of the TV one night, watching Amazing Race, Survivor or one of those shows ;-) Actually, I had already punched out all the parts so I just set up a card table and just sponged the different parts, and put them together. That is 60 cheeks, 60 eyes, 60 blue irises, 60 eyelids, 60 teeth, 60 ears, 60 inner ears, 60 floppy ears, 30 noses and 30 top note dies folded in half.  But, it was fun!!

I want to do a class on just using the Top Note Die one of these days!!!  If you live in the area and would be interested, let me know.  I'll contact you when I get it scheduled.

Have a GREAT day!  And, remember to take time to Paws N Stamp.

Easter is a comin

Oh gosh, I just realized that I haven't shared ONE Easter card, yet. So, I had better get to hopping along!!

I have a few cute ideas for you to do for Easter.  I wish I had time for a class but we have company coming on Wednesday and I threw my back out on Saturday (now why would I do that? Don't you NEED your back?) doing....who knows what.  So, I am gimping along trying to do last minute things before company arrives.  And, then, because she is also a stamper, I know we will be stamping fools for a week!!!  I'll have lots to share after that.

ANYWAY........here is one fun project that my Granddaughter and I did together a couple of weeks ago.


These were just too much fun!!!  She helped me punch and add the layers and of course fill the cups....every once in awhile popping a jelly bean in her mouth.

I got these cups from http://www.webstaurantstore.com/

The item number for the cup is 9994W and the lid is 999L4W.

We used the Large Oval punch for her ears and feet and used it again for the inner ear, but cut it down to size.  We used the Owl Punch for the little pink pads on her feet.  The small heart was used for her nose. What we didn't show was the cute little tail on the back of the cup using the 7/8" scallop circle punch.


Add some Easter grass and some jelly beans or coffee beans and you have a cute little treat to give to your neighbors, family,  friends, hair dresser....well, they ARE addicting to make!!  Not to mention,  your Grandkids will love them. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me by leaving a reply to this post.

Have a great day!!!

Dancing with the Stars!!

Dancing with the Stars


Have you been watching this season's Dancing with the Stars??  Well, we also watch The Voice, so I have had to tape it and watch it later but Wowza....they have some talented dancers this time.  I am really enjoying the skating team, Meryl Davis and Charlie White, that won the Gold medal.  And, it is awesome to see Amy Purdy, who lost her legs at 19, perform.
If you would like to read up on this years celebrity dancers, here is a link.  

Tonight, they are going to shake things up a bit and switch around partners.  Should be interesting and fun to watch.

I recently saw this on an author's blog and I thought it would be fun to do here. Below would be a few people that I would like to see on Dancing With The Stars. 

Read mine and then add some of your own choices in the comment section. 

1. Shemar Moore (from Criminal Minds)
2. One of the Property Brothers (Jonathan or/and Drew Scott)
3. Hoda Kotb
4. Jeff Foxworthy
5. Blake Sheton
6. Anderson Cooper

Oh I am sure there is more.....and if I only got to pick one...it would be Shemar Moore.


Okay your turn :-)

Sale-A-Bration.....Final Day to order!!

Hi,

Just a reminder that today is the last day that you can order from the Sale-A-Bration brochure and receive a free gift with a $50 order (before tax and shipping).

I just sent in my final order for Sale-A-Bration....because there were still some things I wanted to get for free.  :-)

I think my favorite of all the free items was the Designer Series Paper and the Stamp sets.  Of course, I had to have that embossing folder and I also got the punch and a couple of card kits.


Thought I would share the March Paper Pumpkin kit that I received recently.

Wow....all I had to do was open the box.....and everything was ready to put together.

I loved the little wooden sentiments.  The other one that was included said, Thank You.  Basically, I just folded the card, added the stamped pattern, the little round glitter stickers and the wooden sentiment and DONE!!!!  Then, all I had to do was just put the envelope liner in the envelope, write something on the inside of my card....address the envelope...and it's ready to send.

I love having these quick cards at hand....when I don't have a lot of time to sit down and play!  And, they are super simple for first time stampers.

My Granddaughter loves them!!

I am getting ready for company!!  I am sure when she gets here, next week, we'll be stamping up a storm!

Hope you are having a great day!!!  Remember to take time to Paws N Stamp!!
