Aloha

The summer is here and the temperature outside makes me want to relax on a beach, read a good book & sip on something cool.  OK its a nice thought but not realistic.  So I'll just stay home in the cool air and make a card that reminds me of a beach. Be real & stay cool!

S’UP?

How cute is this card!  I'm not the biggest punch art fan but this guy really caught my eye.  We made this for card for Laurie's Line UP! and at a recent stamp camp.

Bee Happy

The lovely and talented Kim Coulter used this adorable bee on front of our menu folder at a demonstrator event we had this past January.  I showed the menu (plus all the other charming things Kim made for this event) to my customers and they asked to make The Bee.  It was something I had in my mind all year but I just hadn’t really got around to it.  When the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalog was released, I saw a stamp from the Sweet Stuff stamp set that just called out for The Bee.  Here’s what I camp up with:

Happy March

Here is my March Facebook Cover that I created in My Digital Studio. It's a lot of fun making these. I am also including the image that I am using a my badge this month. It is from a card I made at my peep’s (Judy Sumner, Mary Taylor and Marla Schack) Card Buffet. It was designed by Judy Sumner and it just a cute as it can be!

Happy March Everyone and Think Spring!

My grandson Joshua has gotten plenty of use of Grandma’s Stampin’UP! products this year as he has had several assignments that require him to make a visual project. This coursework is a cereal box book report about Charlotte’s Web. His assignment was to create the book cover on the front of the box and other requirements for the sides and back. Mom took charge of the sides and back, Grandma took charge of the front.

We used punches, embossing folders, textureplates and some dies as well. Joshua has become a pro at running the Big Shot,
sponging with the ink pads, tracing with the light box and of course, punching.

You will recognize most of the punches of each character except maybe Templeton the Rat. His body is made from the Owl Punch. His tail and ears were made using the Bird Punch.

Joshua is one Terrific Grandson. His score on this project? 105%

The Tin Can Challenge

Each month the Pieces of Heart SU demonstrator group get together for dinner and a challenge.  This month Patti Schnell challenged us to alter a tin can—probably from a can of vegetables.  I Googled and Googled trying to find an idea.  I looked under paint cans, coffee cans, soda cans etc. with no luck.  I even looked under bed pans.  Then one afternoon I was browsing thru my mail when I came across a Macy’s ad.  The envelope had an just the  image of a Santa belt with a red background.  BINGO—I was inspired.  The Santa punch art was inspired by Patty Bennett.  Here is what I came up with:
