Black White and Red Paper Flowers

I decided to take my paper flower making technique in a new direction for this arrangement.  I combined stamped flowers on top of the die cuts and played around with patterned and colored card stock.  I was inspired even further by the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab to add the orange in with the red, […]

Gift Tag Bird

My bird stamp obsession is now in full swing, so I have broken out yet another new set for some challenges.  There were two challenges I had in mind when creating this tag and combining both ideas worked really well. Isn’t this little blue bird just….”cute as a button!”  I LOVE him!  He is from […]

Paper Flowers Birthday

This is one of my earlier paper flower arrangements.  I made these for a friend to be used as a centerpiece for her Daughter’s 1st birthday.  Since it was a ladybug birthday party I tried to incorporate lady bugs wherever I could.  I thought it would be cute if the Flowers could be displayed year […]

Waltzing Mouse Sketch challenge #78

I happened upon the Waltzing Mouse sketch challenge this afternoon.  I had been trying to come up with a masculine card idea.  Our computer guy refurbishes computers and was kind enough to give an oldie but goodie to my 5 year old son.  Jack is a budding Lego artist and frequents Youtube tutorials to gain […]

Pyrex Effect

    I absolutely loved this weeks trigger so inspiring and FUN!  My Mother still uses her 70′s Pyrex bowls (they don’t make em’ like they used too!)  and I always tell her how the designs remind me of my favorite stamp sets.  The bird designs on the bowl helped fuel my latest addiction to […]

Ribbon Flowers

My Grandmother is in a nursing home so for Valentine’s day I wanted to do something special for her.  I had come across some beautiful ribbon flowers in a random Google search and decided to give them a try.  My sewing skills leave much to be desired.  In fact I have owned a sewing machine […]

One of my Husbands co worker’s is a HUGE comic book fan.  He loved the vintage comic book school desk I made so I created this flower-pot as a house-warming gift for him.  Again, I used the same old comic books I had on hand and some clippings that I had left over from making […]

DC/Marvel School Desk

My husband found an ad on Craigslist for two vintage school desks under “free stuff”.  Since the owner of the desks was only a couple of towns away from us we couldn’t resist picking them up.  What a score!  Not only did they have a lift top and inkwell but an attached swivel chair as […]
