Coaster Perpetual Calendar

I really love how this turned out! Very simple project with, I think, a 'wow' factor finish. Of course the Everyday Enchantment paper pack is awesome and makes this project too.

I just covered two 4x4 coasters with the patterned paper and then cut some cardstock and corner rounded it. I used a stamp from to stamp the actual calendars and months and bound everything together with my Bind-it-All.

Great to keep with you or put on your desk or counter. Good tool to remember to send out those Birthday cards!

Twitterpated Birthday

I really like how clean and fresh this card is. You'd think with all the gray skies we have here in Oregon that I'd be sick of gray, but I really like Stampin' Up's Basic Gray. And gray really does go with a lot.

This is a good sample of our current DSP in the Mini Catalog, Twitterpated. And the new stamp set Mixed Bunch along with the new punch, Blossom. The label and sentiment are from an old SAB set, Vintage Labels.

You Light Up My Lawn

This little Gnome is so cute! I just received the Gnome Sweet Gnome set and thought I'd share a little sample. You can get this set from the new Mini Catalog that just started on the 3rd. Fun, fun, fun!

I paper pieced her little apron. Adds that extra special touch. I actually really enjoy and like the look of paper piecing.

Carson's Birthday Goodies

Today my first born turns 8!! Friday the 13th, whoa! And of course I cannot just bring Hostess Cupcakes to school. Each of the kiddo's has to have a something special too. 34 kiddo's in his class.

I got these adorable mini clothes pins and put magnet on one side and decorated the other with patterned paper and the stars I cut from a Cricut cartridge. Cute, cute! And Carson picked out which colors he wanted me to use.

Then I just wrapped a Kit Kat, Carson's favorite candy. These were super easy and the kids are so fun when I bring goodies to their class. They all squeal and are so appreciative it's really nice.

Seems like yesterday I was holding this sweet little bundle. Oh he was the most gorgeous baby boy.

He's becoming such a big guy. And I am so proud of him. Carson is funny and thoughtful, he cares about others, he is a great big brother and I wouldn't trade him for anything!

I love you Carson. Thank you for making me a Mommy!

Everyday Enchantment Clipboard

Where do I start? I wanted something really usable to keep my grocery shopping list and my coupons. I remembered I had picked up this 6x8" clipboard from the Dollar Tree a while back and so I decided to embellish it with the new Sale A Bration paper; Everyday Enchantment.

These are mostly all the same colors that I have in my kitchen! Now I can just put it up on my fridge, write down what we need and after I go through the coupons in the Sunday paper, I can just slip them in the envelope on the back! Whala, its all together and I just take it with me to the store!

For the back, I just sealed a kraft envelope and then slit open the top/side. I also just added the adhesive in the middle on the reverse side so that you can really slip your hand in and grab all those coupons.

Thanks for looking today!

Twitterpated Birthday Card Organizer

I am just in love with this new paper pack! Twitterpated! Lots of great colors and so feminine and just makes you think, 'tea party' and 'spring'. Love it! Two of my favorite things!

I used the Two Tags Die and Sincere Salutations for the front cover, along with the Blossom Bouquet punches to layer on top.

Look how adorable these patterns and colors are together! Lovely!

I almost always add an extra page to the backs of my organizers to keep some anniversary and sympathy cards on hand. Here I used the Four Frames stamp set and the Decorative Label punch. My favorite things about Stampin' Up! = Stamps and coordinating Punches!! ;)

School Pictures

Here's a little something I've been working on. School pictures for my family. Unfortunately for my family, I cannot just send out pictures! They have to be embellished and given in something cute. But that means that sometimes it takes a LONG time before they get any. ;)

These super simple matchbooks are a great way to share pics. And these include both this year and last years photos! Oh yeah, and soccer too. ;)

Here's my oldest! Cutie pie! I left the pics super simple, just adhered them to the pages and then wrote their descriptions. Names, age, year of school.

Hope you like this little project! They were super fun and I know my family will love them! ;)
