Hello, my friends! It’s a beautiful Monday here in CA. This afternoon it will be 70 degrees and tomorrow 73. I think this warm weather has made me rush spring just a bit. As a result, I decided to make some paper flowers using my SU product. I had seen these flowers made using paint, but I think it is much easier to use our stamp pads. No drying time needed when using the pads. If you are like me, I hate to wait or place things into the oven to speed up the drying process. When you use the stamp pads for color, the drying process is not needed and the results are stunning, YEAH!!!
Also, I used the largest die in the Magnolia Memory Dies to create a leaf. I do that all of the time. I love 3-D items and usually, the projects are large and need a big leaf. This die does the trick.
After Making your flower, place it onto the canvas to determine where you want to stamp your sentiment. The stamp set Ridiculously Awesome is truly awesome for this project.
I used the subtle folder and a bit of stamping just to add even more texture and interest to the leaves. To fill in some space on the canvas I added Metallic Pearls. I feel that the metallic pearls give the canvas just the right bit of elegance.
Kick back, enjoy the show and let me know if you have any questions.
Here is a list of non-SU products that I used. A canvas, skewer, coffee filters, a pencil, hot glue and gun, floral tape.

Hello friends, On Wednesday I had a Stamp~A ~Long on my Facebook business page. Here is the replay! At first, you may think, THAT LOOKS difficult. It really is not, just go slow. Once you have made one, you will have the concept down and any others you make will be easy. Enjoy!!!
Hello my friends, As you know I love home decor and 3-D items. Yesterday afternoon I shared on my Facebook Live a project I had made earlier that morning. Here is the replay for you to enjoy.

Hello, my friends! Do you LOVE this witches shoe as I do? I have had this pattern for years and years. I never get tired of using it. I especially love using it during Holloween. However, you can make these shoes for many different occasions by simply changing the paper that you use.
I can see Dorthory’s shoe from the Wizard of OZ. I can see a girlfriend’s high heel for a birthday or a wedding shower. If the shoe fits? Right?
Here is the link to the pattern.https://www.skiptomylou.org/2008/10/28/paper-witch-shoes/
Now all you have to do is cut down your designer series paper to 8-1/2 X 11 and place it in your printer. Then print the pattern onto your designer series paper and you’re ready to create. Cut out the pattern using your snips. Score on all of the dotted lines and lastly add tear and tape to the tabs. Fold on all score lines and put the shoe together.
To embellish my shoe I used Stampin’ Up! black satin ribbon for my bow and the medium daisy punch with Gorgeous Grape cardstock to make the flower. Lastly, I embellished the flower with a Clear Faceted Gem. That is it! It is really simple.
Have fun with this, my friends. Let me know if you need any product or if you have questions.

Happy Fall Y’all,
My Paper Pumpkin kit arrived yesterday. I immediately sat down and opened it up. I was so excited, I could not wait to see how cute this months kit was going to be. I’m not disappointed, this kit is eveything I hoped it would be.
As usual I did not follow the instruction pamplet that comes with the kit. Instead, I created an alternative project to share with YOU.
These little gable boxes are so cute that I can’t give them away. Is that bad? I don’t think its to bad since the kiddo’s who visit us on Holloween will receive one of those super cute coffin boxes that Stampin’ Up! currently carries in the Holiday catalog.
Because I love holiday decor I made this project. These little boxes will add to my collection of Holloween decorations. Every year Stampin’ Up! comes up with the cutest items for each holiday, collecting them year after year has paid off. I have a good little collection.
Using the Hand-Lettered Prose Dies I spelled out happy holloween ( these dies are sold seperately). Then I added each letters to alternating colored tags that come in the kit. When I was done I added the lettered tags to the boxes. I made sure to alternate the pattern boxes just to add to the whimsy. Next I embellished the boxes with the webs, skelton hands and Mr. Bones, as I call him. The embellishments are set into place using those super cute black clothes pins.
After Holloween when I put these boxes away I can remove the embellishments store them inside of the boxes and keep everything safe from damage.
This kit was so easy to use that I actually sat on the couch and made this complete project in about an hour while watching Doctor Phil, LOL!

Good morning!!!! Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting.
Today I’m sharing a project that I’ve been dreaming about for a really long time. It involves vintage luggage, chalk paint and the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.
I have a few pieces of vintage luggage that I’ve been wanting to dress up. I took this piece and decided to transform it.
Yesterday I painted my luggage white using Annie Sloan chalk paint. This morning I grabbed the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp set and our black ink and stamped away. I colored the flowers in using Stampin Blends. Then I sponged all over the place using soft suede and petal pink ink. Lastly, I stamped gray polka dots randomly using the eraser of a pencil and Smokey Slate ink.
I think this piece is going to look great in our guest room, it wil fit in with a travel theme.
After stamping the handle I added a bow.
Here is a close-up. I think you need to visit me and take a look in person. Stamped luggage can be a sweet addition to your home decor.
Thanks again for spending part of your day with me, I appreciate you!
