Tag Topper Card

Hi! Hope everyone had a great weekend.  We had a lot of rain and even more snow! I hope that was the last of it and that Spring weather is on its way.

I spent Sunday playing with some new Stampin Up supplies that I received this month.  I was so excited to get the scalloped tag topper punch so I could make some of the great cards I have seen on many blogs.  And I love the Stamp set Happy Watercolor.  Both the stamp set and punch is available in the Occasions catalog

Supplies: Cardstock - Whisper White, Island Indigo, Pool Party. (Scrap piece of retired designer paper). Stamp set - Happy Watercolor. Punches - Scalloped Tag Topper and 7/8 Scallop. Pool Party ribbon. Ink - Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry.

Gorgeous Grunge Scrapbook Page

Happy Friday!! Hope everyone had a great week.  I am excited for the weekend, I will be traveling a couple hours to visit family and get some stamping time with friends at my upline's house.  Can't wait to see the great projects she has in store for us! Plus I haven't seen some of my family since Christmas.  This winter was not very good for traveling.

This is one of my favorite pictures from my wedding.  One of my ring bearers (my great nephew - Landon) got a little bored during the ceremony and decided to crawl thru the best man's legs and about knocked him over.  

I used lots of Stampin Up supplies for this page.  Colors: Tempting Turquoise.  Stamp Set: Gorgeous Grunge.

Have a great weekend~ Shelley

Pop Up Box Card

Hi! I love all the Pop Up Box Cards I have been seeing on blogs!  So I finally gave it a try, it was a lot easier than I imagined it to be.  But I realized in this picture you can't really see my back layers very well.  Might have to add some more flowers to it.

Stamp Sets: Missed Bunch (coordinates with the Blossom punch) and Label Love (coordinates with the Label punch)

"Live" Mini Album

Hi! Last week was a busy week for me.  I went back to work full time after a 2 month "vacation".  Clothes and dishes are piled up.  I need to get back into a routine again.  It was nice being able to do those chores any time I wanted, but it was back to reality making a steady income. So far I think I am really going to like this job!!  

Here is a mini album I made on one of my "vacation" days.  I made two similar ones that I am going to give as gifts.  I love the stamp "Live the Life you've Imagined" from the  Really Good Greetings stamp set.  The papers are from a retired Simply Scrappin" set.

The pages are Stampin Up envelopes that I cut open so I could insert a piece of card stock for more photos. 

Have a great Monday ~ Shelley

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! We had gorgeous weather, with the threat of snow on the way.  I am hoping that snow stays far away from us!

Here is a wreath I made for our door for St. Patrick's Day.  I love the green, it makes me think of the start of Spring! Flowers will be blooming soon.  Lots of daffodils are starting to sprout up all for our hills. :)

I made the rosettes from retired designer paper.  I wrapped the wooden wreath with burlap ribbon. The shamrocks are made from the heart punch, with little buttons in the center.

Have a great day ~Shelley

Today I wanted to share the card my husband made me for my birthday! He went into our craft room/office the night before my birthday.  I thought he was in there working on a computer, but he came out and couldn't wait until my birthday to give me his card!

It's it great!! I love it!
