Wednesday Valentine Wowzer

6 Feb
Hello Crafty Ones!
I am here to show you my I Heart Ippity project, hooray:)
I have used a lot of different stamp sets for this;)
The polka dot gift bag, I picked up over at Deena
I made a heart shrinky dink with some Grafix Arts Red Shrink Film.
Inside my gift bag is a candy filled tube of M & M’s.
Plastic tube and papers are from my workplace, Ben Franklin Crafts in Grass Valley, CA.
Now to let you know all the stamps I used, get ready….
What do you think?  Wouldn’t you love to get a Valentine like this?
I hope I have “WOW”ed you today!  Thank for stopping by and visiting.

From Trash to Treasure

27 Jun
This might sound so cliche, but I am so excited to share what I have made today!

My daughter could not find any shorts in the stores that she likes(they were all too short) so, we bought pants and I made them into shorts.  Call me a hoarder, but I have a tough time throwing anything away.

Here are the pieces of denim I cut off the pants.

A normal person would have just chucked them in the garbage.  But, I am far from normal!
I thought it would be cool to emboss in white on the denim, I tried that first, but the white actually absorbed too much into the denim.
Here you can see I have all my supplies ready to go.  I have the denim on top of some large acrylic stamping blocks for a hard surface to stamp on.
Here you can see I stamped all the supplies wanted to use, denim, Mary Engelbreit fabric, twill tape, and organza ribbon.
Here is the final product after I put it all together on come thick chipboard and mounted it on some fabulous coordinating Canvas Corp Papers.
I am using the set called:  Let your Heart take Flight.
The lettering is much darker in person,
I just had a blast making this picture.
It’s so fun to find buttons and beads to add to projects like this.
The puffy heart pillow really adds a fun touch to this.
So there you have it, my attempt to WOW you!!
How did I do??
This has been my version of from Trash to Treasure, with Jeannie from The Polka Cabana.

Mother Daughter Wednesday Wowzer Time

4 Apr
I had a busy work week so far and my daughter was so sweet to try and do my card for this post. while I was at work tonight.
I will show her card after I show you the card I was able to come up with before going to bed.
It’s so much fun to get new stamps in the mail to play with.
I can’t show you this whole set, but I am using one of the sentiments, from this set, for this card.
The set is called Let your Heart Take Flight.
Since the sentiment is supposed to be the star of the card, I kept the rest of the card pretty simple.
Using paper from My Minds Eye Dolled Up and dies from Cheery Lynn Designs…I think the card is perfect for the challenge.  It also will go along with the challenge that is up on the GHWI blog, GHWI Challenge #18.
I had a busy work week so far and my daughter was so sweet to try and do my card for this post.
She tried to focus on the sentiments also, by stamping them on white.
She used the {ippity} set called:  Straight From the Heart.
Here is her card: (She is 13 & I think she did pretty good for her age group!)
So there you have it…a mother and daughter post for you today on this Wednesday Wowzer.
