2 Days Left!!

Just a reminder that it's 2 days until the Mini Occasions catalog is closed out! It will be a sad day!! I truly do love the papers and stamps in this issue.....going to miss them! (However, I don't give up my stamps very easily, so you just might see some posts in the future with more ideas with the stamps that are going away!)

So, with another look at the gorgeous paper from the's a Thank You card that I designed that I hope you'll enjoy and get another glimpse at the many possibilities with this Twitterpated Designer Series paper! :-)

Blushing Indigo!

Have you ever had a stamp set that sits on your shelf and you just never seem to have a need for using it.....even though you like it?! I have several of those! Soooooo......I purposely set out to use one of them! Lol.

It's a great stamp set.....called 'My Friend' and I think it worked well with this design. Let me know what you think. :-)

I do love these colors together, and yes, as I've said before I just LOVE this DSP paper pack from the Mini Occasions! Don't forget to get yours before it's no longer available! Only one more week left for the Mini Occasions goodies!!

Have fun throwing buttons, pearls, ribbon and curled up paper into little flowers, into your cards! Makes it so much fun and interesting.....even if it's only you that thinks so! ;-)  It's your creation, right?!

MDS Easter Fun!

It's been awhile since I've posted a digital scrapbook page from "My Digital Studio."  Easter antics was the perfect opportunity to break out the camera and get some fun pics of the kids! They had such a great time running all around the house searching for eggs.....and then consuming the goodies inside. :-)

There's not much better in this world than watching your kids have enormous amounts of fun and enjoyment! Don't you think? :-)

Hope you enjoy another example of the endless possibilities with MDS! So easy to use and create quickly with!

White Peony

Ok, I'm trying really hard to come up with some simple designs, occasionally.....less layers and less time consuming because I'm so short on extra time to 'play' these days! I know many of you are in the same boat. Too much to do in so little time! :-)

My little girl is blossoming overnite into a young tween.....wanting to spread her wings, show her independence and yes, try and act and dress older than she really is. Sigh. It's a full time job, in itself, of trying to slow the process to an acceptable limit. Lol. If only they could realize there is no rush on this journey.......and so much for them to miss out on on just being a kid!

So, with the few opportunities I have to get in my craft room, here's a look at a 'simple' card! The flowers are made with just a series of different sized circle punches from Stampin' Up! The more circles you use, the thicker the flower. I distressed everything with ink to give it a more 'aged' look. The stamp set is "Tea Shoppe"......just love it!!
Hope you enjoy and have fun using the design in your own creations!

Noooooooo!!! Stamps going away!

It's that time again....pleasure and pain.....great stamps going away to make way for new stamps coming in! Be quick about getting what you want because it tends to go very quickly!!

Rue Des Fleurs!

I'm so sad to say that time is speeding towards the end of the Mini Occasions items! This has been such an amazing collection of wonderful stamps, papers and accessories that I'll bee so sad to see go, but will definitely reman in my stamp collection! :-) I'm even stocking up on the Designer Series Paper because I love them so much!!

So, with all that said, here's a couple card designs using the great set "Rue des Fleurs" in two different ways...both embossed with the umbrella in two different colors...with one colored. It's been so long since I've embossed any images, I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed doing so!

The DSP paper, center die cut, brads, and stamp set above were all from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.
