Beate’s Weekend Sketch Challenge #40

Here it is…I had to try out my new set of stamps I got when I was hostess a few months ago at my Stampin’ Up! group.  This set is called “So Many Scallops” and honestly, just by looking at the stamps, I never thought that they would fit inside the scallop punch and look great when they were punched out.  But it works!  Great!  All you have to do is line up the punch with the indentations on the stamp and punch!

I made a card that made me think of warmer places!  I can’t wait for Spring to ACTUALLY get here-no matter what the calendar says, Spring is not here yet! 😦


Beate’s Weekend Sketch Challenge #39

Here’s my entry for this weekends sketch challenge. I used all scraps and of course the Cricut machine! Leave a comment and let me know what you think! 😉


Birthday Blessings!

Of course I just had to use my new Cricut instead of doing my kid’s report cards for conferences on Tuesday! I wanted to show my hubby just how much I needed it to begin with and how much easier it will make my life! I sat down to make as many things as I could, and decided to use one sheet of DSP (Designer Series Paper) and see how much I could do with it!

This is a pocket card. The area where the polka-dot paper is has a pocket that would be perfect for a gift card! Click on it for a better picture.

It’s up for sale!


My New Cricut!!

I am sooooooo excited!! I FINALLY was able to get my hands on a Cricut Die Cut Machine!! It took about 6 months of convincing my hubby to let me get one. So I went to Jo-Ann’s last night where they were supposed to be on sale, but they were ALL OUT! I was so sad I almost cried! I asked for a raincheck and they said they weren’t going to get anymore in, so I went to Wal-Mart and for a mere $8 bucks more, I got one!!! I also got some extra cutting mats, blades and a few cute dinosaur dies for the Cuttlebug, for my son (I’m secretly planning on using them to make his birthday invitations, but he doesn’t know that yet!) Here’s a picture of my new toy!


500+ Hits!!

I’ve decided that since we’re almost to 600 hits now, that who ever e-mails me back with a $25 order or larger, will get some jumbo paper clippes in a Spring design for each $5 they spend!  That’s 5 gifts to give to friends or 1 to keep and 4 to give away!  So hurry up and e-mail me back with your order!!  I’ll dream up something big for 600-it just may take me awhile!

Beate’s Weekend Sketch Challenge #38

Here is my first submission for the WSC posted by another Splitcoast Stamper, Beate.  You can find the original sketch here if you would like to try one out.  I’m not sure if I totally hate it or like it yet–pretty undecided! 🙂 Let me know what you think!

Yeah!! 500 hits!!!

I’ll have to think of something special to do since I’m 1/2 way to 1,000!

Get back to you on that!
