Challenge #22 - All about food

This week at Just Buggin' our challenge is all about food. I got this file from Okieladybug. I love how she names her files, so when I use one I know who to give credit to. She made this file that you can find here on her blog. It cuts out 4 lollipop treat holders. Visit her blog at Okieladybug's Scrap N' More. The file can be found here: Lollipop holder.

I used this cut file from Plantin Schoobook for my project, and used stamps from Stampin' Up's "Love Bandit" stamp set.So, if you share your cut files make sure the download file has your name on it, so those of us that download it can give you credit when we use it.
Card Recipe: Stampin up Mellow Mambo Cardstock
Stampin' Up - Love Bandit Stamp set
Stampin' Up - Mellow Mambo, Chocolate Chip ink
Stampin' Up - Grosgrain Chocolate chip ribbon

Challenge #20 - About Pets

This week our challenge is all about pets. Hop on over to Just Buggin' to join us this week.

This layout is a scrapbook page of Rop our cat, his expression in the first picture just says to me, hey where are my presents. I used Animal Kingdom, Celebrations, Stretch your Imagination, Christmas Cheer, and Alphalicious. I also used the Martha Stewart branch punch to punch out the branches I adhered to the tree. I used my new love Stampin' Up Crystal Effects to apply glitter to the gift pages and tree and the santa hat, with Stampin' Up's dazzling diamonds.

Free Template Challenge

Today I came across a Stampin' Up demonstrators blog, Lynn Pratt. She had a template on her blog, you can check it out here. It was to use the template and decorate the box. Here is my take on decorating the box. You will see this box again, I'm going to use it for another challenge, but I have to come up with a new idea. If you win the challenge, you receive two of her kits free. There are only a few days left. I hope I win, I'd love to get two of her tutorials since I've just kicked up my business, it would make workshops a little easier with ideas.

Isn't he just adorable. I got the idea from the cricut messageboard from one of the posts in paper dolls dress up.

I'm having a Love/Hate Relationship

With my new Stampin' Up Milk Carton die. I've been working for the last two hours on projects using it, and maybe I'm too critical, but I just don't like them. Please tell me what you think.
For this carton I used very vanilla cardstock, tea party designer paper, so saffron for the bunny and lovely lilac for the easter tag, and pretty in pink ribbon.
On this one I used Mello Mombo cardstock, real red satin ribbon, heart treat cups, love bandit and sweetheart stamp sets.
Lastly, I used the dsp from the free hostess set in SAB, I used the {I} heart hearts stamp set, and the SAB border punch, the scallop border punch and real red satin ribbon.

Challenge 19 - Stampin Fun

Good Morning from the snowy south. Oh my what day, school closed early (I forgot Robby's emergency plan was for me to pick him up), Business closings, and basically a shutdown of the entire city. So, I guess it's a good thing so I can get ready for the crop I'm going to on Saturday, that is if we thaw out by then. It's suppose to be 19 degrees tonight and just barely above freezing today.

Well, onto today's post for my Challenge #19 - Stampin Fun, over at JustBuggin'. This week we were challenged to stamp on a project, I had a blast, I made my own background paper for my February Calendar. I used designer calendar and a retired stampin' up stamp set.

So join us over at JustBuggin', and get creating with your cricut.

Happy New Year!

I'm very excited for 2010 to begin. I have become a Stampin' Up demonstrator and so far it's going so well, since I decided to step it up. I have one club already formed and another workshop planned for February. It's been so easy, and once I started talking about it the workshops just started falling into place. Also, I will continue to have my weekly posts as a designer over at Just Buggin'. I will have more posts on Stampin' Up products, so watch for those a couple of times a week.

So, you will notice links to the new catalogs beginning January 5th on my sidebar. There has been a mishap with Stampin' Up mailing the new catalogs, so they have given us permission to post them a few days early.

If you would like to place an order you can contact me via email at
Currently, I don't have a SU ordering website, so I have to place the order for you.

Happy Stamping in 2010,
