She’s All That


I received a really cute card from my friend Barbara a while back that looked a little like this one. I loved it so much I have made it tons of times! This is one of my favorites. I used Ballet  Blue for the base. Pretty in Pink is the next layer, followed by Pawsitively Prints DSP. Images are stamped on Whisper White.  She Birthday girl and sentiments are from the retired set She’s All That. Sure miss that set! The ribbon is Ribbon Originals Mistletoe. There is also a cute little Pretty in Pink flower button. What you can’t see in the picture is that the girls dress and bow…and cake are covered in Dazzling Diamonds. Very blingy! Just like my niece loves!




Father’s Day Class

Last week I did a Father’s Day class. These are the projects that we made. Thank Heavens for Lorri Heiling, because she sure helped me get it together! I showed up at her house to borrow a stamp and left with GREAT ideas! She is wonderful!!

DSC02838This first project is the cute little Tool Box. It is Lorri’s tutorial, and if you are interested, click here to order it. I love it! So did the ladies in my class. For it, I used, Soft Suede CS, Natural Ivory CS, Woodgrain Background stamp, and Totally Tools. It is colored with Basic Black and More Mustard ink. Then just some silver brads.


Next is another one that I CASED from Lorri. I used Handsome Hunter for the background, More Mustard, Basic Black, and Whisper White CS…then TIN FOIL put through the sizzix machine for the background. Stamps are Totally Tools. The ribbon is some cute ribbon I picked up.


The Third is a Shirt Card. I found it at She has such great ideas! I used Blue Bayou, and a Blue Bayou DSP that I can’t remember the name of…I think Jersey?? Silver Brads too. Simple.


The last card was a CASE of one of my  up line Wendy Janson’s cards.  She always has such great cards. I miss stamping with her! For this card I used all retired stuff. I bought it long before I cared what it was all called, so I really can’t tell you the colors….except Cranberry Crisp!  I used Soft Suede for the ink on the B. The Stamp set is Party Hearty. You can see Wendy’s Card here.

Lily’s Birthday

I am late in posting this one too, but I still must post it! Lily turned 7! I can’t believe that she is 7 already!


Lily wanted a Brownie Mountain for her cake again. It doesn’t look the greatest, but there are never leftovers!



This a cute cupcake that Lily’s Cousin Emily made for her. It was almost too cute to eat. She even made this cute little pedestal plate for her.

When I went to Convention, I got to take my kids along too. They had a little vacation with Aunt Laura, Uncle Ken and Cousin Chelsey.  It was a blast for them! They are so fun to be around. I am so thankful that they spent the week with the kids. 

Friday was Aunt Laura’s birthday so this is what the kids and I put together for her. I was inspired by this one here. There is also a great tutorial on splitcoast for it too!

I had the kids write down why they loved her and then I added some pictures to it. I like how it came out!

PAPER: Bella Birds DSP, Bordering Blue, Chocolate Chip CS.
