I am back…..Valentine inspiration

30 Jan
Hello Everyone!
It is me, Jeannie.  I am back today with a fun project I hope will get your attention!
I am using products from a fabulous kit from Clear Scraps February Kit club.
This little project I’ve made is a home decor piece.
I am using the itty bitty Unity set called You Make me Mushy.
This is done on a leftover 6 x 6 acrylic page I had from February’s kit.
I also used some Inktense pencils to shade the mushrooms.  I am hooked in those pencils after my first use,
Don’t you love how colorful and happy this looks?
A special thank you to Jamie for my mushroom embellishment on top.  I only use them on the most special of projects!
I hope you like this!  It’s good to be back making things!
I will be back next week with another WOWZER!  Until then!
Ta ta for now!

Wednesday Wowzer, Hooray!

14 Nov
I made it, not even late!
I was inspired, today, since I saw an old friend, sort of, today, and I hope that I will see her again tomorrow to give this to her.
I manage a small gym in my very small town and I have not seen this one lady,that I adore, in awhile because **GASP** she has been going elsewhere for her workouts!  I know small town scandals, I could tell you a few! Any how, I saw her today but just missed her, so I’m hoping tomorrow I can catch her and give this to her.  She is the epitome of STYLE and this card is especially for her!
I have used the Love in an Instant – KOM May 2012 set for this card.
For the sentiment I have done one of my favorite things which is to just cut and piece phrases from ones I like to come up with a phrase that suites my needs.
I had the pewter charm that says
“be yourself”, which fit this card perfectly.
Here is one last look at my “couture” stylin’ card.
I hope you like it!
I’ll be back next Wednesday to WOW you again!

Thankful Thursday

Today’s post, you will not read any complaints from me.
I have made some Thank-you cards to hand out to some dear friends who have touched my heart.
For that reason, this will be a thankful post and I hope to get through this with no complaining whatsoever.
I made 4 cards, they are all somewhat similar, with slight variations.
They all have this sentiment inside.
The first part is a stamps from the Unity May 2012 Love in an Instant set.
The 2nd part is just words I printed out from my computer.
It was my birthday on Sunday and I had some friends who went over and above their call of duty in recognizing that it was my birthday. So these cards are for those friends who I wanted to say thank you to.
Each card is different, in the way the borders are done.
Some have patterned paper,
some have washi tape and some have border stickers.
Here they are all lined up.
I love making a group of cards together
.
Its a great way to get a lot of people takes care of at one time, and by just mixing your embellishments, you can easily make each card unique so they do not end up looking exactly the same.
So did I make it with out complaining?  I hope so!!
The set I used to were

Wednesday Wow, it’s Halloween!

31 Oct
Hey Creepers!!
Happy Halloween and Happy Wednesday.
I have a fun post to share today.
Something I passed out to my co-workers and friends today.
These cellophane bags contain my much admired and craved caramel corn.  I try to only make it this time of year so that is really treat people look forward to.
The stamps I used were, Gurnsey Gingham and Halloween Greetings.
I stamped my cardstock with the Gurnsey Gingham before cutting out the pumpkins.
I used little letter stickers to remind me who each bag went to.
This is not a great picture, but it is 2:00 in the morning, so it’s the best I could do!
I hope everyone has a great night with their kids or what ever it you are doing tonight.  Be safe.
Those of you on the East Coast, I can’t even imagine what you are going through, none of this seems to matter compared to what you are all facing.  Our thoughts and prayers be with you, I wish I could do more.

Wednesday Wowzer, Bee-Lieve it!

10 Oct
It is Wednesday and here I am with my WOWZER for you!!
I am using the {ippity} set called BETTER TOGETHER.
I have used this set many times and love that you can make up your own sayings for it,
therefore the set can be used for EVERYTHING!
On the inside I made my own “honeycomb” strawberry.
I attached a phrase I had leftover to turn this into a cheerful type card.
Here is a side look at my 3-D strawberry :)
Bright and colorful, perfectly representing many of my favorite things!
Red…polka dots..cherries…
There you have it, my a Wowzer for this Wednesday!
I hope you have enjoyed my creation for today.

Wednesday Wowzer & Tribute

26 Sep
Today it’s all about Amy.
We here at I Heart {ippity} are not just team mates but buddies.
We have a forum where we chat and check in with each other, lift each other up when needed, etc.
Well I felt a need to dedicate today’s post to Amy.
Now that might sound silly, right?  I mean you could say, you guys just are on a team, you’ve never met!!
Well there you’d be wrong!!
Here we are
I got to meet Amy earlier this year!
I just felt like I lived closer to her, she’d be someone I’d hang out with all the time!  She is such a doll!
(Left is me, right is Amy)
Here is a cute thought I came across to go with this post.
What better kind of helmet, than a CROWN?
I vote AMY, QUEEN FOR A DAY!
I am using the {ippity} set called Dream a little Dream.
What do you think?  Perfect to cheer someone up?  Right?
Now I’ll have to figure how to whisk her off to this Spa in Tuscany and I will have truly made her Queen for the Day!
I hope you have enjoyed my little Amy tribute and Wednesday Wowzer!
This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana posting for I Heart {ippity}, have a great day!
This is me today….

Wednesday WOWZER TIME!!!

19 Sep
Hello everyone.  It is me Jeannie, here with a fun, quick and easy WOWZER card today.
I am using the Sketch from Chick Challenges With Ippity CC44.
Here is my take on the sketch.
I am using 2 different sets.
The flower is from the set called, BECAUSE OF YOU.
The word “friends” is from the set called TIME FOR…FRIENDS & WINE.
I stayed pretty simple with my color scheme and spritzed the card with some matte Tattered Angels spray, since I could not get my glimmer mist unclogged! (ARGH!!!)
It still turned out lovely, I think!
I like how the flowers mimic “friends”.  Different, but the same.
I hope you have enjoyed my quick and easy card today.  This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana posting for I Heart {ippity}.  Have a great rest of the week!

Halloween is Almost Here???

12 Sep
Can you believe there is only a month and a half until Halloween?
Where is this year going?
Today I made a cute little Halloween treat box using the new {ippity} set called Halloween Greetings.
I filled a Clear Acetate Pillow box, from Joy’s Life.com, with Candy Corn and decorated the outside with the stamped image and other things to match the stamp and the season.
The adorable die of the Witches legs is from Cottage Cutz.
Wouldn’t these be cute as table decorations or party handouts?
Did I WOW you?  I hope so, or I’m not doing my job!!!
You better start thinking about Halloween, it is fast approaching!  This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana posting for I Heart {ippity}.  Have a wonderful day!

Wednesday Afternoon Wowzer

5 Sep
 Today is a day I really should have just stayed in bed!
I thought it was Tuesday, and it hit me at some point that it was Wednesday and then I remembered I am the WOWZER girl, and I have NOTHING to show for it. I dropped the kiddos off to school and had every intention to come home and make a QUICK, CLEAN and SIMPLE card and load it up real quick on the blog.  Well that is not so easy for me to do…I get sidetracked as I go!
First, I knew I wanted to use my own nails as my inspiration.  OK, that might be kind of VAIN but so what!  If you knew me, it is rare that I have a vain moment, allow me this one, OK??
To add to my own vain moment, well yes those are my nails…and I made my little design up all on my own…Yep I know…Nails = Just like crafting!  Easy Peasy!!
Here is my card based on my nails!  I am using the fabulous set called, FABULOUS GIRL.
What a fitting title!  Since I’m feeling rather fabulous about the way this card turned out!
All except for my intention of it being clean and simple.
Plus, I  will not go into the gory details of glue malfunctions, sticky tape stubborn backing, hot glue annoying web like strings, craft room mess that allows me to find nothing when I need it….
Nope we won’t talk about any of that at all.
I love working with tiny things like putting a tiny skirt in the stamped dress…
…adding the ruffles to the phrase…
…it’s the little things that make a card unique and a work of art!
I hope you have enjoyed my WOW for the today!
This has been me,  Jeannie,  from The Polka Cabana posting for I Heart {ippity}.
Have a great Wednesday, well what’s left of it that is!!!
