My Family

My favorite times are when Braydon comes home to for holidays. However, this trip home was short, we treasured every minute with him. Brit said she was bruised from wrestling with her older, much stronger brother....We wish all visiting my blog a Very Happy New Year!!!

Zebra Goodies

This is a zebra goodies package from my husband's secretary for my birthday. The larger piece has a spinner underneath it so it turns all the way around. The box is tea bags and the rest you can see, I think. Love the zebra pen and it is embellished no less.

Purses and Coffee Cards

These are little holiday purses used as gift bags for coffee cards. I got this pattern from Becky @ inkingidaho.blogspot.com and now that I have made a couple they sure are fun. Key to remember is use heavier paper and double sided. Wouldn't a teacher think you were the best getting one of these?

This is a cookbook I made for my mom for her birthday. I have missed placed the name of this scrapbook paper, but I think it was Teresa Collins. It is a 12X12 piece of paper with the recipe words and I just added and embellished where I felt it needed a little something more. I also used ribbon and the bind it all and scallop punch.

Happy Birthday to me!

This package arrived in the mail for my birthday from a wonderful friend.....She has so much talent and is so creative. I love seeing packages in the mail and can't wait to get them opened up to see what she has been up to these days. Gotta love the zebra print even more!!!!

Twirp Placement Cards

We hosted Twirp ( the formal dance where the girl invites the guy) Dinner for our daughters Senior Year at West High. I knew I had to have something stamped everyone would expect it right. So I printed these on raised business card and stamped them with zebra stripes. They were the perfect touch to each place setting.

Grrrreat Under the Stars

Ok when they demonstrated this set at Convention I know I had to have it!!!! This little bear is so cute and fun to work with. I put him around a candle and on a box of chocolates that was invested with mosquitoes. He is "hiding" behind a "bush" made with the scallop punch....

Sweet Treats

This is right out of the Mini Catalog with minor changes to make it my own. I thought you'd get tired of tags, so I changed it up, but there are more tags coming. I was waiting for the Big Shot punch to arrive for the top of the bag (green) and it was back ordered so I have had to make due. I also thought of putting "Meet me under the Mistletoe" would be cute to add to this with Hershey Kisses instead....so if that happens i will post that one as well.....

There IS a Santa Claus!

Sorry this is blurring....but it was cute enough to share. Rather than putting "to and from" and just left plenty of room to write your message.....and we are not done with tags....have you had enough?

Gift Tags

I am working on holiday gift tags and enjoying it you'll notice because you'll see several posted over the next days. This was a $1 Michaels stamp and I raised it off the paper with SU holiday paper from last year.....this years paper is still coming. I used a gold gel pen to add some "wow". They also have dimensional on the back for easy attachment. I am selling these tags in gift bags of 8 for $10.

Holiday Lineup

Holiday Lineup has started...This is the cutest snowman set and fun and easy to color. I also ran the Bordering Blue paper and the patterned paper through the Big Shot with my Cuttlebug embossed image of snowflakes. I love the texture it gives it. The reindeer I used my Primacolor pencils and Mineral Spirits along with the SU markers. I especially like the greeting from Hear from the Heart as well. I am making several different cards this holiday season. So check back and see what is in store.

Thank you Dawn

I am way behind on my thank you's, but this was one I made Friday for Dawn, my husband's secretary. She brought heart shaped muffins on a zebra plate when we were moving in...I should have taken a photo of them, but then again where was the camera!!!!! Just kidding, it is always close to where I am for sure. They just gotten eaten before I could capture them on film, so thanks Dawn, they were wonderful and very cute!!!!!

Test Tube Halloween

I bought these test tubes on ebay, would love to find more!!!! These treats turned out so cute and I would give credit where it is due, but I have forgotten where I saw them since it took me a while to locate the test tubes. It was someone creative however!!! I made these up to share with a couple of my new neighbors.

I have Spiders!!!!

I got this cute idea from Diane Dimich. I thought I would make them up for the kids my daughter babysits. This is a great use of the punches and they stand alone.
