Make a Flip Flop Card!

You can freehand your own template, using the photo as a guide. I used the larger hole on my cropadile to punch the three holes. Trace it on your paper, flip it over, and trace again for the other one. After cutting out, you can put them back to back and punch the holes at the same time. I crimped the flip flops for this card, but you don't have to. Add two small lengths of your ribbon for each sandal, I just taped the ends on the back. I added a punched flower and rhinestone brad to the top hole after adding the ribbon. Have fun, and happy stamping!

Make a Simple Corner Bookmark!

Make this simple bookmark from one piece of 6"x6" paper. Fold diagonally, open, and fold again in the opposite diagonal direction, cut away one triangle, fold up and adhere, it's so easy! Decorate however you want, I punched the triangle that gets cut away with Stampin' Up!'s Round Tab punch, and used the reverse side of the double-sided paper to make a little tab for the top. Then, just slide it over the corner of the page you're on in your latest book!

My Latest RMH Donation

I have been so busy with my boys' school carnival that's coming up, I haven't really had time to do much stamping. I did manage to crank out some cards and these cute purses for our local Ronald McDonald House for Mother's Day. I love how the purses came out, and I got to use some of my favorite dies and my Big Shot!

Here is another card I made using my new Choo Choo set from the Occasions Mini Catalog. Visit my website to see all the great products and promotions! This set is so fun. It coordinates with so many other sets, I am finding. The train can haul away a huge cupcake from Party Hearty, or you can make a circus train if you combine it with the animals from Wild About You, which I plan to do next, by the way. I have seen some great projects using this set in the splitcoaststampers gallery.

Cocktails, Anyone?

We made the champagne glass card at my class yesterday, and with the leftover kits I made the rest of the set! I love this set. These cards may need a little glitter...

Some of my latest creations! The airplane card is for my best friend Bridgett's dad, he had hip surgery a few weeks ago, and is not back to his old self yet. I thought this would cheer him up, he's a pilot! I used a little retired paper, I like to use up the stuff I've hoarded...

Ronald McDonald House Easter Treats

Here are the 10 Easter treats I made for our Ronald McDonald House demo group's donation. They each use one piece of 12"x12" patterned paper, folded up into a little pouch.
