The sale-a-bration set Bliss is quickly becoming one of my favorite! It is soooo versatile. I made this card for my co-worker and it is a case of one I saw on Frenchie's site. Use a sticky note to mask off the area you want and use dark to light shades of ink. I then used versamark and white embossing powder. All SU products.

Sense of Time Clock (2nd one)

I made this clock for my stepmother's birthday-a gift from my Dad and they liked how it turned out. She loves Victorian, so I chose shades of pinks and burgundy. This one came together much easier than my first one. So I guess it's true what they say-practice makes perfect! :)


I saw this little Easter Egg tree somewhere in blogville, but don't remember where. If it is you, please let me know so I can give you credit. Found a twig in my yard that had a few branches and heat embossed the egg stamp from the Easter Blessings set-used a glass candle votive holder and VOILA!
This next one is a glass block (love altering glass blocks) that I drilled the bottom out and inserted white lights. I used SU Vinyl in white and my Cricut for the Bunny and Happy Easter.


I made this clear stamp case for an associate who is pregnant with her second boy. I know how much you need thank you cards during this time so I inside are four baby boy appropriate cards and envelopes. She seemed to really like it.


I love altering boring black and white composition journals with the beautiful SU cardstock and embossing folders. I will be selling these at my upcoming fair, but also made them for my co-workers to keep track of our weight loss challenge. I thought they would make great food journals (as long as we really write down everything we eat :)!

Craft Fair

FABRIC PINS IN ALL DIFFERENT COLORS! My daughter is too old for headbands but I
remember the days when she LOVED them
and I think the little girls will love these in all different colors.

I'm in a local Spring Fair and have been soooo busy working on new items that I haven't had time to post! I figured a Saturday morning was a good time to play catch up.
These fabric pins were made with the BIG SHOT and the fancy flower folds die. I used some leftover fabric and felt and am happy with how they turned out. I wear one on my jean jacket and have received many compliments-yay!


I love making these paper wreaths and was thinking of selling them at an upcoming fair I'm working on. What do you think?

This smaller wreath uses the beautiful Stampin' Up Springtime Vintage DSP, which is gorgeous in person!
The larger wreath uses non-SU paper in shades of black/white & grey.
