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 Ziegler.com.
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.

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!

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 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

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.

I Heart {ippity} Wednesday Wowzer

18 Apr
My post is late today as I was awaiting the right amount of sunshine to take my picture.  I had the card all ready to go, when MARMALADE..the neighbors cat decided to come and visit!  OOPS!
Anyhow, I am using this fun sketch from the Chick Challenges blog.
 Here is my take on the sketch.
Lots of stitching on this card.  There are quite a few layers!
I am using the set called We’re Better Together.
I also am using lots of fabulous Vellum and Metallic Foil Board from GRAFIX ARTS.
Are those bees just the cutest little things or what?
One final look.
Thanks for stopping by today and I am on way to link up to the sketch challenge over on the CHICK CHALLENGES blog!  I have used this sketch quite a bit and it is a good one!
Join us..or at least go visit to see all the fabulous entries.

4 Jan

Today, I am going to try something new…

I have a lovely project today and a giveaway!!

My resolution for this year is to keep enough money in my bank account to mail out my giveaway’s the same week I announce a winner!

In the past I have been bad about having winners and then no funds to mail the prize off..


So..on to my post..

I had this little mini  box of chocolates…hmm where did that chocolate go??

Anyhow, I wanted to make this into a box of cards..

Here is a sneak peak at the final product…but you will have to head on over to…

I Heart {ippity}

to see how it turned out and what my GIVEAWAY is!!!

I hope you come back and tell me what you think!

Have a wonderful and wacky Wednesday!

Thursday Thoughtfulness with I Heart {ippity}

17 Nov

I wanted to make a quick post for I Heart {ippity}.

I just got done making a very fun card.

I used the set called Flowers + Friends = Priceless.

Here is what I came up with.

I am using some Authentique Paper from the Free Bird collection called Poised.

What do you think of those flowers?  I hand made each one of those!

I love the way the handmade flowers look with the flower stamps.  I embossed the stamps in a thick black finish.

I tried to create a blanket type feel by fringing the edges of my paper.

Altogether, I love the way this turned out!

I hope you enjoy the things I make, it is the best part of my day to share ideas with you!

Have a thoughtful Thursday and go make your self a great day!

{ippity} Stamps –  Flowers + Friends = Priceless

Patterned Papers –  Authentique Paper -Free Bird – Poised

I have someone to thank today for helping meet my deadline to I Heart {ippity} earlier than usual!

For those of you are new, be sure to read about my FAVORITE CARD DESIGNER, Deena Ziegler.

Here is the link to my post about her.


I have lots of card kits that I still need to make, so I grabbed a card and sort of made it my base.

I used the {ippity} set called BECAUSE OF YOU.

I love this card for so many reasons!

First of all the colors.  Did you know my favorite color in the world is red?

I also love using the applique stitch on my machine for edging cards.

Lastly, I love the POLKA DOTS!  I have said it before and I will say it again, they just make me happy.

I have to tell you these {ippity} stamps are the best.  I Heart {ippity} has fabulous prices so go on over and order yourself a set if you don’t already own any!
