For today's card, I used the Bella & Friends stamp set. This is just a cute, cute set. Maybe I am smitten because my sweet dog's name is Bella. Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment.

Cut It Out! - Pals August Blog Hop


Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for August 2016.  We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects using our favorite Stampin’ Up! cutting tools. There are so many wonderful punches, framelits and edgelits available that help make papercrafting more detailed and fun! We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.
You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.
I created a Birthday, Stair-Step Card using Framelits, Thinlits, and Punches.  But I used one thinlit die in a different way than what you normally see on cards.  The Swirly Scribbles Thinlits created the candles using the long curved die.  Using the curved pieces creates movement in the candles.  The flames were made from the smallest leaf die.  I cut two per candle, stacking them on top of each other, for more dimension.  I know Ms. J will love her birthday card!  Please leave me a comment below!

Baby Crib

We will soon be Grandparents for the first time! Yay! I made a baby crib for our daughter's baby shower, to wrap as a gift. I thought it would be cute, instead of bringing the actual crib to the shower. I think my crib turned out pretty cute and it was much appreciated.
I want to give a shout out to, Paper Is Bliss, as my inspiration. Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment!

PPA310 Sketch Challenge

This is the first card I have created using the Jar of Love stamp set. This stamp set was high on my wish list when the new catalog was released. I have a collection of Blue Mason Jars that I use in my Studio to hold paint brushes (and, anything I can fit in them)!
For the PPA310 sketch challenge, I created a card with a Blue Mason Jar filled with flowers. As a matter of fact, I have two Blue Mason Jars filled with flowers on my Farm Table, in the Dining Room. I think you get the picture (I love Blue Mason Jars)! Ha!
This birthday card was created for my daughter-in-law (Ms. K). I think she will love it!
