Make a Wish

We had such beautiful weather this weekend! Sunny and perfect temperature Saturday and Sunday.  I didn't get very much accomplished, I sat on my porch enjoying the weather and read a book. Then Sunday my son and his fiancĂ© surprised us with a visit! 

It is that time of year again for Stampin Up's retired list.  We hate to see the products go, but it makes room for lots of new and fun products!  You can check out the retired list here.

The fun designer paper I used on this card is one of the items retiring, it is called Birthday Basics.  The stamp set is Perfect Pennants and the Banner framelits are available in the Occasions catalog.  

Have a great day! Shelley

Mojo Monday Birthday Card

It's Monday! I had some birthday cards to make so

Lots of birthdays this month in my family and at work.  This one I made for my oldest sister's birthday at the end of the month.  I used lots of different products on cards.

Wallet Mini Album

Happy Wednesday! Hope everyone is having a great week.  My new job is going great! I really love it there. Such a nice change from the last one.  I am excited for tomorrow evening, I will be attending a "Girls Night Out" at a local library.  I am excited to see what all they have to offer and find some ladies interested in Stampin Up!

This is a wallet mini album I made recently.  I didn't take a picture of it closed, but it closes up to about the size of a women's wallet.

Lots of pockets and tags inside to put your favorite photos!
I used Soho Subway designer series paper.

Have a great day ~ Shelley

Love it!

I altered this 8 x 10 canvas in February for Valentine's Day and never got around to sharing it. They make great gifts for grandparents, or just about anybody. Just add a cute photo and they will love it!

The background paper is a retired piece from last year's Valentine's Day collection.  I used the Banner Blast stamp set and punch that was available in the Sale-a-Bration catalog. I also used Hearts a Flutter stamp set and matching framelits. 

Have a great day ~ Shelley

Easter Baskets

Happy Hump Day! So far this week the temperature has been feeling more like Spring!! The daffodils are blooming all over the hillside. I love to look out the windows in my craft room at all of the beautiful blooms!

I found instructions to these cute little baskets on someone's blog, sorry I can't remember where it was.  They were so easy to make I made several of them to give with Easter treats.

I loved the color combos on these two.  Rich Razzleberry is still one of my favorite colors.  And I love the Retro Fresh designer paper available in the Occasions catalog. 

Have a great day ~ Shelley
