First Scallop Dress!

Alright I know that this Designer Paper is LONG retired, but I thought it would make a cute dress. (Glad I saved it now!) Does anyone remember what this is called or do you even have any left or am I the only one? I am down to less than 1 sheet of this one and the purple one like it. Hard to believe, I know. Shows how big of a paper horder I am! LOL Any way, made a little purse to go with it from the Round Tab Punch. I know it's hard to see, but I did the background using the Soft Swirls BG stamp for that little touch.

STAMPS: Cute Converse, Soft Swirls
INKS: Black Staz On, Versa Mark
PAPERS: Old Olive, Pink Pirouette, Pickles DSP

Pinwheel Card

Hi everyone! I saw this pinwheel card on Lyssa's blog and thought I'd give it a try myself. It was pretty easy. When I was out shopping the other day I saw these colors on a pair of sandles and thought I want to use these colors on a card. Well I just put the two together and here is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy. And check out Lyssa's blog (Song of my Heart) for instructions on how to make this card.

PAPERS: Close to Cocoa, Cameo Coral, Tempting Turquoise, Candy Lane DSP

ACCESSORIES: 1 1/4" square punch, Scallop Edge Punch, CAD

Decorative Mirror

This year I have decided to get a head start on my Christmas Craft Show projects. So here is a peak at another one I am FINALLY getting around to. I got one of these last year during a swap at Convention and KNEW I wanted to do one for the craft show. As usual time got away from me and I never got to it. Well, I did this this morning. I really liked how it turned out. And believe it or not it is really easy to make. I hope this is a big seller for me this year. There is magnets on the back so that you can hang it in a locker. It perfect for that all important check between each class. It also has a cork board to pin up any important notes, phone numbers, ect.... I think girls will really like one of these. I am thinking of (maybe) making an option of having them personalized. What do you think?

PAPERS: Gable Green, Tempting Turquoise, Only Orange, Rainbow Sherbert DSP
ACCESSORIES: Tangerine Grosgrain Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Heart to Heart Punch, Oval Mirror, Corkboard, Particle Board, Tacks

Flowers for You!

I had some "ME" time today to play with my Big Shot! So I came up with this little number. I saw a technique where you inked up your embossing plate before sending it thru and it comes out looking so neat!!! I just love it! This just might be a new favorite! Then I cut out all the flowers and leaves and layered them in the flower pot and here is what I ended up with. Hope you enjoy!

INKS: Perfect Plum
PAPERS: Pale Plum, Mellow Moss, Rose Red, Regal Rose, Old Olive
ACCESSORIES: Big Shot, Paisley Embossing Folder, White Gel Pen
