A Christmas Angel??????

Don't let the innocent face fool you - he's a Boo Monster!!!

Another January SU! class project...

This toilet paper tube mini album is also for my Jan. 7th class. I demonstrated these for another group of customers in November and they enjoyed them so much that I thought I would demonstrate them for my regular group next week. All supplies are SU!, the papers are from their Merry Moments collection. I filled mine with black and white pictures of my 2 great-nieces from Christmas 2008. I printed the pics in black and white to showcase the colors in the papers. I think it worked! I really like these little TP mini albums, I love the little journaling tags and what a great way to recycle!

January SU! class cards....

This card was lifted from joyk on Splitcoaststampers. I changed the colors and patterned papers a little to make it a bit more gender-neutral, but the basic design is all hers. All papers, stamps and inks are SU! This is my first attempt at a Stair Step card and I can't wait to see how my customers like them!

I lifted this card from Splitcoastampers too - from gbarron. I was looking for a way to showcase my new SU! "With All My Heart" clear stamp set and I fell in love with this card. You can't tell on here, but the paper is glittered, It's brand new and it's really nice in person. The scalloped edge really adds a lot of interest. It showcases the backside of the double-sided paper. It's a bit tricky to do, so I hope my customers don't struggle with it. Again all supplies are SU!

Baby girl card...

Here is a baby card I made for our neighbors whose baby girl was born on Christmas Eve. All papers are SU! I didn't have any pink patterned papers for the flowers so I stamped my own! I also used a SU! textured plate for the dots. Used a lot of pop dots on this one too!!!

Tangerine with Tearing COM for January

Here is my take on the Card of the Month for January. January's challenge is "Tangerine with Tearing" I chose to do a Criss Cross Card. The striped and dotted papers have been in my stash forever and I thought they went perfect with the Tangerine/Orange. Let me know what you think!

Another Gift Card Holder...

Here is a gift card holder I made for my Mother-In-Law for Christmas. I've made several of these style gift card holders and I really like the design. All the papers, stamps and ink are from Stampin' UP!

A little bitty pocketbook...

Here is a purse I made for Dylan's girlfriend for Christmas. All the papers are SU! - Raspberry Tart, I think. Used my Gypsy to tinker around and get it just the right size to hold a gift card. Added her name, using Gypsy Font to personalize it a bit. Hope she likes it : )

Wouldn't have been possible to make big enough without my Expression - thanks to my hubby again for getting it for me for Valentines Day! Between that and my birthday Gypsy I'm one happy, lucky gal this year!

A couple cards...

Here are a couple cards I made recently. One is a birthday card for my niece and the other is a birthday card for a friend. I made both using my Big Shot Movers and Shapers dies. First time I've used it - so much fun to play around with. I love the little window!

All of the papers are SU! The tree stamp is also SU! and the kitty stamp is a Penny Black.

My First Word Book

Here is my first attempt at a Word Book. I always wanted to try one and thought the upcoming birth of my new great-niece would be the perfect opportunity. We draw names for Christmas in my family and I have my youngest niece to buy for. She is pregnant with her first child and baby "Bella" is due January 9th, 2010. Please feel free to leave a comment if you like.
