Here is a framed sign that I made for my SIL. She recently bought her first house, and I wanted to give her something for it....I really think it turned out good. I used the Porcelin Prints Designer Series paper to create the background, and On Board Letter for the word home. This was such a quick and easy project - I think I need to make more! Groovy Huh!

They say it's your birthday!!!!

My niece Allana will be turning 6 in a couple of days. She likes girly things and it's fun to have a girl to create for - living in a male dominated household. I had a good time coming up with her gift - a lunch tin and a journal. We filled the tin with all kinds of markers and colored pencils for her to in turn create some goodies of her own. Nothing like firing up the creative juices of others!!! Here's what I came up with:

I just love all of the frilly colors and the spring feel that they have. The flower on the journal is really Groovy Guava, although it looks rusty in the photo. I did use clear embossing powder on it to give the chipboard a more shiny look. Also used Stampin' Up!'s new Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware. I don't use my Hardware enough, and now vow to get it out and use it. It's really an easy way to glam up anything. I'm such a hoarder - I've got the stuff, but feel like I need to save it for some reason. I do the same thing with wrapping paper and fabric. What is wrong with me??? I just need to let go - I really love the look once I use it.

Well, I hope you liked my new creations. Now I'm off to finish up a sign that I made for my sister in law for her new house. I'll post it in a bit!

A Good Egg

Oh, what fun I'm having with this stamp set!!! The little chic is so cute. I can't wait for Easter so that I can come up with some great scrapbook pages with this set. And once again - I'm loving the glitter!!! While home recovering from my surgery, I've been watching Ellen, and she is campaigning to BAN glitter. I shudder at the thought! If she could only get her hands on our Fine Cosmo Glitter, she would surely change her mind! Oh, Ellen, please see the light! It sparkles with glitter! Any-who, here are my latest creations:
