Ahoy Matey!

Well, friends -  I've got one more shape card for you this week -  A fun treasure chest card - another project made with the help of my Silhouette cutting machine.
This one was actually published in the just released July/August 2012 PaperCrafts Magazine - in the Summer Shaped Cards section (Page 46).  I embossed the sentiment and skull on the front, sponged the edges and drew stitches with a Micron black pen.

The Ahoy Matey is from the Half Pint Heroes set by Waltzingmouse, the skull stamp is a wooden $1 stamp from Michaels.  And inside the Happy Birthday is from Birthday Basics by PTI
Perfect for all the little pirates in our lives right?!

I just have to share these recent pics of my two Grand Nephews, Landon and James.

 This is Landon (he'll be 2 in Sept) -  I was baby sitting him recently and doing a craft with him (of course!)

 and he decided it would be fun to stick these pieces of paper on his face!!!
He wore them for about 5 minutes while he continued to color his project!!

And here is my Grand Nephew James (Landon's Cousin)  He just turned 1 - here he is at his party with his dad opening presents.
And here he is with Aunt Katie (Landon's mum) in his Cat in the Hat hat!  I'm so blessed to have these beautiful little boys in my life!
I'll be back here on Sunday with my Waltzingmouse Blog Party card (are you joining in?) -  don't forget the WMS Sketch on Saturday and there's still time to join in the Stampin' Sisterhood June challenge!

And in case you were wondering when there was going to be another Waltzingmouse Release -  it's happening on July 1st!  Just wait until you see the 3 lovely sets Claire has for us!  Sneak peeks will start on 6/28!

Practical Solutions

Today I have a few cards to share that were published in the recently released PaperCrafts publication - Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters

This card was accepted for the category - Paper Scraps -  and can be found on page 69



The 'Join Us' and 'for a Baby Shower' are from the Join Us Set by Waltzingmouse.  The cute giraffe is a Snag It stamp by Imaginisce.  The twine is from The Twinery.
Inside I stamped this line stamp to write the details of the shower on.  It is from the Victorian Fripperie  set by Waltzingmouse and I adhered a giraffe stamped and cut out from the patterned paper used on the front of the card. (PTI - Bitty Dot Basics)

My 2nd project was accepted for the Five for $5 section.  Where you had to make 5 cards and include the receipt showing that it cost no more than $5 to make all 5 cards!
My 5 little Valentine cards (each one is 2 1/2" x 4 1/4") actually only cost $3.07!    I found a wonderful piece of patterned paper by K & Co. at Michaels for 40 cents! (Postage Stamps from Sweet Talk Valentine's Day Collection) that was full of these little 1"x3" images.  I cut out 5 of them and layered them first to a panel of Scarlet Jewel card stock and then to the Vintage Cream card.  To finish them I just tied a narrow dotted satin ribbon around the top!
 These remind me of the little valentines we used to exchange with our classmates in elementary school  - putting them in brown paper lunch bags we decorated and hung on the wall in the back of the room! (one of our first craft projects right!?!!)
 These cards can be found on page 152 and 153.


The card stock and ribbon on these are from Papertrey Ink.

So that's it from me today!   Did you by any chance see these in the magazine??!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A Card in PaperCrafts!

Just wanted to share with you that I had a card published in the just released PaperCrafts 365 Cards!  Have you seen this great issue yet?  It's just loaded with cards for all occasions (365 cards in fact!!).


If you check out Page 112 you'll find my card - a card for when you really need to let your friend know you're sorry for something that came between you.
A very clean and simple creation -  just a piece of pretty patterned paper from Webster's Pages, the lovely sentiment from Fancy Phrases by Waltzingmouse die cut with Fancy Tags 2 Spellbinders!  I sponged the tag before taking it out of the die with Dried Marigold Ranger Distress Ink and popped the tag up on foam tape.  I added 2 rhinestones and that's it!

Check out the PaperCrafts blog to see how you could win a copy of this magazine.

Happy Saturday everyone!   Don't forget to check out the Waltzingmouse Saturday Sketch Challenge!

For the Graduate!

With graduation time coming up for both high schools and colleges - I thought I'd share a project I made that was recently published in the May/June 2011 issue of PaperCrafts Magazine.

It's an autograph book that I made using coasters and my Zutter Bind it all.

The stamps are from Free Spirit Boy and Free Spirit Sentiments by Waltzingmouse.

On the inside of the front cover and on the outside back cover I stamped quotes from the set Words of Wisdom

Just click on the pics to see them larger.   This one says "You've got to do your own growing no matter how tall your grandfather was" Irish Proverb  along with 'do it'


And this one says "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new"  Albert Einstein  along with 'Go For It'
Perfect quotes for the new graduate don't you think?!  This little book could also be used for photos of the big day and the celebration held after!

Have you got a graduation coming up in your family??

The Perfect Cat

Confused by the title and the image?!!

I combined both Monday Split Coast challenges in my card today. The CAS challenge was to use humor - the Try a New Techinque challenge was to use a different shape for your card.

I found this cute little scottie dog template in Papercrafts Magazine on line. Isn't he just adorable?!

I cut the dog out of a textured Bazzill paper, added his little jacket, stamped the sentiment, cut it out and tied a bow around his neck!
The sentiment is from Rubbernecker.

I used to be just a dog person - we had a sweet cocker-springer spaniel mix dog growing up and later I had the most wonderful great dane, but years later someone gave me a little homeless kitty and I became a cat lover too.

Now we have two beautiful Russian Blue cats who are sisters, named Scout and Boo. I have to say, they are a lot easier to take care of than a dog......

Scout always sits with me when I stamp - so I had to explain to her that I really didn't mean what I stamped on the card ....... LOL!!

This sweet little pup will fit in a regular size envelope in case you're wondering!

Stamps: Rubbernecker - The Perfect Cat is a dog #77-11
Paper: Black tie Bazzill Basics, More Mustard - SU, DP OCtober Afternoon/Modern Homemaker Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: wrinkled seam tape - http://www.prairiebirdboutique.etsy.com%20shop/, brad - Imaginesce, template from PaperCrafts Magazine
