Feeling Wishy Washy

When I started working on a project today, I knew I wanted to use my trio of mouse stamps along with the trio of word stamps "Be Happy", "Have Fun" and "Laugh Out Loud". I also knew I wanted to punch out circles and glue them onto an acetate backing so they would look like they're floating in air. I just couldn't decide on a project...first I did a gift box/container:

But, that turned out a little too big...I wouldn't be able to scan the pattern on my then I thought...maybe a smaller box with the punch outs going around the container instead of up one side:

oooh...maybe I could use it as a candle holder!!! (Please use with battery operated candles ONLY!!!). If you want the pattern for this here. Uhhh...maybe gift cards!!!

In the end, I couldn't I just posted all of them!!

Stamps used: #1101 (Mouse on Balloon), #1102 (Mouse With Rose), #1103 (Happy Mouse), #5048 (Be Happy), #5049 (Have Fun), #5055 (Laugh Out Loud) and #5030 (Scattered Flowers). Thanks for stopping by!!!

Happily Ever After

I picked up this frame at Ben Franklin a little while's sold as a wedding placecard, but I decided to make it into a picture frame:

I don't know if you can really see it, but I used Stickles to glitter-up the bride...from her tiara, down to her shoes!!! The flowers are from All Natural Accents. Now that I've made it, I realize that I don't know anyone getting married soon!! If you can make use of this frame please leave me a comment by midnight tomorrow, July 24 and I'll pick one person to get this frame. ('s a 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" frame.)

Stamps used: #B107 (Ever After), #C102 (Wedded Bliss) and #5004 (Rosebud).

Stopping By To Say Hi

Just a quick post today to say Hi!!

I cut out just the top part of Maddy (from the Maddy & Pip stamp) and glued it down on the bottom (under the flowers) and put a pop dot under her head to make it look like she's popping out of the flowers. I also hung a funky flower from a jump ring.

Stamps used: #6004 (Funky Flower), #B124 (Just Me) and #C104 (Maddy & Pip).

Hope you're all having a really good summer...isn't it just flying by?

One More Cupcake

While I'm on a cupcake kick....thought I'd make a quick cupcake card:

I used a 3-1/2" x 6-1/2" cardstock, crimped and scored at 2" and 5"...topped with a swirl of icing cut out of "Sprinkles" paper (from Doodlebug) and closed with velcro. Super simple!! Wouldn't this be cute as a birthday party invitation? Stamps used: #B102 (Max With Cupcake) and #A105 (It's Your Birthday).

I also wanted to share this card from Joni:

Isn't that just the cutest? The card hinges on the top to reveal a message inside!! So clever!! Thanks, Joni!!!

Hope to find some stamping time soon...until then!!!

A Cupcake Favor

Hope you all had a very Happy 4th of July!! I'm still working on my pile of scrap paper and came up with a remake of a favor idea I had previously posted. My original project was for a little purse to hold one of those chocolate nuggets. I thought it might be cute to take that same idea, but make it into a cupcake purse like this:

There's a VERY simple pattern that you can download here. Cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. Here's a shot of the pieces:

As you can see, I ran the rectangular piece through a crimper so that it looks like a baking cup. I used double stick tape to attach the ribbon handle along the top crease. I also glued the "frosting" to the top flap of the purse. Velcro was used to keep the purse flap closed. I topped the whole thing off with stamp #4010 (Cherries). Here's a view from the side so you can see the candy taped to the bottom:

The pattern that I am providing makes the pink cupcake purse...I played around with the height of the pattern to make the blue and lavender purses. Hope you can give this one a's super fast and easy!!
