I follow so many blogs that it's hard for me to keep track of where I get ideas from!! I may get ideas from multiple people for one card! I try to give credit when I remember where I saw the idea...

Well, here's my first attempt at make some of the flower pins that all the rave!! The colors look more fall to me so I need to try it again with more springy colors!! I know Patty Bennett has done lots of these but there other people as well.

The next 2 cards are the swap cards I made for the Stampin' Up! Regional Conference I attended in March in Lafayette, LA.

(This is the inside of the above card.)

I tried my hand again at using the sponges again... thought these turned out ok.

The next 2 cards I made for my mother and my mother-in-law for Mother's Day.

(I think I saw this rose technique from Gretchen Barron.)

And I couldn't resist doing this cute Easter basket card...

I've seen this shadowing effect on several blogs...

If you have any questions about techniques or products used, just email me at and I'll be glad to send you the info!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter!!

Here's a thank you card I made for a friend using the "lace" technique, which came from Patty Bennett's blog. (She got the idea from Tana Conley.) The Medallion stamp was used to make the "lace." I also used the With All My Heart and Vintage Vogue stamps sets from the Occasions Mini catalog. If you don't have them, GET THEM!! They are awesome!!

Well, it's been awhile since my last post. Needless to say, I have been quite busy! I attended Crop Connection in January as a Stampin' Up! vendor and I thought I'd share some of the projects I did there. A few of the ideas came from Splitcoast Stampers (unless otherwise noted)... I'm horrible at remembering where and who I got an idea from!!

First up, is the Foldout Scrapbook....

Here is a cute little card using the Sweet Treat Heart cups.... pull the "love you" tab and you can get to the M&M treats!

And here is a cute Heart Sucker card...

This little nugget candy bar purse was by far the biggest hit!! And it was the easiest one to make!! (I think this idea came from Angie Kennedy Juda.) Everyone LOVED this idea!!

Next up is the Medallion card... I LOVE this stamp!!

This was a fun project... faux marble card using shaving cream and Classic ink refill!! It's really a neat trick and makes a beautiful feature to cards! You can even change up the colors!

The Bottle Treat Tote was quite popular too! (I got this idea from Andrea Walford.) You could easily change this up for any occasion.

If you have any questions about the products used, just send me an email at and I'll send you the list of products.
