let it snow...

I love my snow globe die. It makes the darn cutest tags or card. I used amuse blueberry polka dot and french roast cardstock. I also used the "holiday tags" stamp set for my scene inside my globe. Add a little twine and oh so cute!

Crop for a Cause

I am setting up at a crop fundraiser today and this card is what my make and take will be.
I thought I would keep it simple but cute.

If time permits we will make this tag as well.
I love all the dies from amuse studio! 

All set up and ready to go! I am excited about the crop today and sharing amuse with everyone!

warm winter wishes

This is a winter scrapbook page using the "snow crystals" stamp set and the snowflake die.
I stamped the snowflakes in winter sky ink onto sugar cardstock. I used twinkles to jazz it up a bit.
I love this stamp set and have used it so many times!

8 x 8 scrapbook page

I will be at an all day crop to share amuse studio with some scrapbookers. I thought I would make a few scrapbook pages to show them all how you can incorporate stamps into making your pages. I love how this one turned out using "autumn leaves" by amuse studio.

Pringle package

We went to Xavier University yesterday to celebrate Emily's 20th birthday. These are the beautiful packages we took with us along with cake and ice cream! Emily loves Pringles so I wrapped a can of them with bright polka dot paper and topped the can with a pretty felt flower made from amuse's new felt. Everyone loved it!

The birthday girl!

Emily and her friends.....Caroline, Felicia, and Mary....all enjoying CAKE!

creepy spider card

My very talented sister made this creepy spider card. She used an embossing folder to make the web and then using a cirlce punch she attached the spider on a thread between layers of paper so that when you open the card the spider spins. So very cool!

mummy treats

My sister made each member of my family one of these mummy treats for Halloween. She took oreo cookies, dipped them in melted white chocolate bark, then drizzled them with more melted bark to make them look like mummies. She added candy eyes found at Michaels and using amuse cardstock and twine made a darling tag. They were yummy mummies!

My sister came by my house yesterday and brought me this amazing gift. She used all amuse products to make this Halloween decoration for me. Each wood block is painted black and decorated with amuse studio paper and embellishments. 
Isn't it just darling!? I just can't tell you how much I love it!!
Thank you so much Shari! You are so very talented!

Any occasion tags!

I love to make tags. These would be beautiful on any gift. I used the Marvy Tag Punch and added a little stamping, coloring and embellishment to make a simple yet beautiful tag.

I used Brioche Paper pack by Memory Box to punch the tags out.

I used the smile inside and essential sentiments stamp sets from
amuse for the sentiments on each tag.

More cute Halloween treats!
 I used the onyx woodgrain cardstock to cover packs of gum. I then cut some wasabi and pumpkin cardstock and stamped them with the "too cute to spook" images.

Halloween treats!

I found these "ghoul-aid" packs of kool-aid at Krogers and thought they would make the cutest treats for Halloween. I made a pocket to hold them in and then deocorated the front...cute as can be!
The stamp is from Hampton Art and is called "spooky tree". I used the Martha Stewart punch for the fence along with a cirlce punch for the moon. The paper is Memory Keepers and it is called Spookville.
The bat and sentiment stamp are from amuse|studio "too cute to spook".
