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!!!

Wednesday Wowzer {ippity} Time

22 Aug
Today I have a fun card I have made with a special friend in mind to give this to.
This is for a friend who lives locally and works harder than most women I know.
She is quiet and has been known to hide behind produce to avoid talking to people, but I can say I have been lucky enough to go out to Ice Cream with her, so it’s safe to say, we are beyond the hiding behind the produce stage:)
I am using the set called SIMPLY HOME for this card.  While making this card, I thought of my friend Brooke, for so many reasons.  She runs her own farm, she posts the most hilarious things sometimes about her adventures on the farm, she works with the local search and rescue team(I don’t know if I got the term right, sorry), she is a wonderful cook, a wonderful mom, wife and a devoted and loving daughter of god.
The phrase on the card says “Life is Simple.”  I thought of that, and physically life in far from simple for Brooke.  But it is important for you to know, that she is the kind of person that would tell you that if you just break life down to the basics, such as Living for and Loving God and finding Joy in something every day, then you could say that yes, “Life is Simple.” ….and that is why this card inspired me to think and write about Brooke and make this just for her!
So there you have it..a little peek into the life of someone I know!
I’ll give this to her as is…so she can just have it in her home, or if she feels like giving it someone at some point..she can!
I hope you liked my story…
Special kudos goes to Cheery Lynn Designs for the dies I used on this card also!

Wednesday Wowzer Time

25 Jul
Maybe I’ve said this before, but sometimes I make something and I’m just giddy about the finished product!
Today is one of those days!
This is the card I have made for I Heart {ippity}
Have you ever had a need for a card to give to a friend that’s not really a sorry card but more like a Murphy’s Law card, Luck of the Draw card, Guilt by Association card?
This is one of types of occasions.
I am using the set called: Simply Home.
I have paired the set up using Pink Paislee’s Hometown Summer Paper.  The fun thing about this card is the sarcastic humor.  This sweet phrase says: “Life is Simple”
But the occasion I am giving this card, to a friend, for contradicts that, so when you open the doors to the house, it says, “yeah, right!”
Lots of machine sewing and fun details went into this card, since it is Wednesday and I am expected to WOW you!!
I had a ton of fun making this and it was well worth losing quality sleep over!
I hope you have enjoyed this fun card today, this has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana.
Have a great Wednesday.
I made this card based on sketch #CC40 and will be entering it in that challenge.
Here is the sketch.

White on White Elegance

20 Jul
Hello, it’s me, Jeannie with a card based on our theme over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog.
The theme is White on White.
There are so many fantastic entries so far.
Our designers also have some fabulous samples to show you so be sure to visit over there soon.
Here is my card based on the theme.
I started by using the Rectangle Scallop and embossing is with my favorite embossing plate, Black Eyed Susans.
The decorative edge you see to the right of the ribbons is made from s strip cut from Cuties 3.
The tag with the phrase is made from 2 layers of French Flair.
The flowers are made from Judy’s Blooms.
The phrase is from an {ippity} set called Be Brave Branch Out.
I have really enjoyed making cards to go along with our challenge themes.  If I am ever stuck for an idea, I just look at what the them is and I immediately have an idea to jump start me.
I hope you have enjoyed my post today.  This has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana.
Have a great Friday.

Wednesday Wowzer with {ippity} stamps

18 Jul
Today I am sharing a card I whipped up very last-minute for my, I Heart {ippity}, post.
I am using a set that is called Born of my Heart.
There are lots of great phrases in this new set.  I did not use the full phrase that went with this “LOVE”.
 But, that is what is so great about this set.
You can break the phrases apart and use bits and pieces or use the phrases and words “as is.”
I was able to create this card in literally no time at all since this is a card I have from one of my older kits from my delightful friend and mentor, Deena Ziegler.
I love to buy her kits and sometimes I create her cards like her diagrams say to and other times like with this one, I just kind of do my own thing!
 I hope you have liked my WOWZER for today!
This has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana with today’s post.
