Owl Punch

I can't get enough of this cute owl punch! I didn't even give it a second thought when i seen it in the catalogue, but when you see it come to life, it's a different story. This was one of the projects we made in our stamp club with Lisa Freeman. On the inside is a cellophane bag with some M&M's. Putting the eyes together is a bit tricky because it's so tiny. Personally, I think if you have some googly eyes it would be just as cute. I know I have some somewhere, if only I can find them. Hmmm?

Baby Shower Invitation

I did not intend to make baby shower invitations but I couldn't pass it up. It was for an extra special occasion, a baby shower for two of my closest friends, who are both having girls. I spit out 21 invites on a rainy day. I was dying to use some of my new products like the XL scallop circle punch and the elegant lines embossing folder. The stamp set is Out of the Box, which is retired along with the polka dot melon mambo ribbon. The color combo is certainly celery and melon mambo. I loved seeing the reaction on my friends' faces when they seen their invitations, PRICELESS. I live for those moments, so rewarding.

August Card Swap

I woke up early the morning of and had to make 10 swap cards. I had no clue what I was going to do. All I knew was that I had to use an accessory from the catalogue and I was pressed for time since my family was visiting from AZ. I had been waiting to use the itty bitty buttons so I put my thinking cap on and created this card. I used Elegant Soiree dsp along with Baja Breeze and Crumbcake cardstock. The ink used is Soft suede along with the stamps sets Just Believe for the flowers, and Upsy Daisy for the greeting For the accessories I punched out a flower with the new Itty bitty punch and the coordinating itty bitty button was glued to the top. Last of all, I tied a bow with the Very Vanilla satin ribbon.
