welcome baby

I made a gift card holder for my friend who was attending a baby shower over the weekend. I used yellow gingham from amuse along with french roast and sugar cardstock. I stamped the polka dots in lemon whip ink. The words and baby buggy were stamped in french roast ink. I added some ivory pearls and twine to finish it off. The buggy is a clear amuse stamp from a long time ago. I hope the lucky recipient liked this gift card as much as I do.

O' Christmas Tree.....

One of two trees we put up over the holiday weekend. We had plenty of help from family that had come in town for the Thanksgiving holiday. I am ready for the rest of the festive decorations.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with the family! We missed you Collin!

I have always wondered what it would be like to be in the front of the line at any store on Black you go!
For all you brave shoppers out there, I hope you snag a good deal! Enjoy!

thank you

I always like to include a small thank you note in each customers order when I deliver them. I love the indian corn stamp in the harvest blessing set. Thank you ladies for making every workshop a fun time. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

fall rosette

My sister creates the most beautiful rosettes. I call her the queen of rosettes! She made this beautiful decoration using the tweet heart set from amuse studio. She stamped it on shrinky dink in an array of fall colors, layered it and put a ribbon hanger to make a gorgeous fall decoration. Can't wait to see what she creates next!

gobble gobble.....

My sister surprised me with this darling little turkey! Is he just not about the cutest thing you ever saw?!  Everything but his body and the wooden disc his feathers are attached to are part of a snowflake....his feet, feathers, nose, arms, and gobbler are made from one of the snowflake dies. My sister used the beautiful fall colors of cardstock to create his turkey feathers.
I just love this little guy!

warm wishes

I made these darling cocoa bags to sell at my craft show this weekend. I used the small mitten die to cut the mittens out of blue and white amuse felt. I adhered them to a small clothespin and added pearls to the cuff. I stamped a snowflake on glassin bags and slid in the cocoa packet and clipped the mitten to the folded edge. How darling are these to give to co-workers, family or friends this holiday season!

Santa, is that you?

Here is another project we will be making at Regina's workshop. I just love the Naughty or Nice stamp set from amuse studio. It has become one of my favorites!

decorative mint tins

These two altoids containers have been decorated so you can present them to someone as a little secret santa gift or stocking stuffer. The one on the left is covered with the cello wrap removed and the one on the right still has the cello wrap on. You can decide which one you like better, but I think they both turned out cute. This is one of the projects we will be doing at Regina's workshop on Sunday. It's going to be fun!

thank you

Fall is my favorite time of year and I love everything about this card!

rainbow of pearls

Amuse has a beautiful selection of pearls in so many is just so hard to choose one so I got them all in my last order. I know I will be using them on many projects. So very pretty!

stocking stuffers

I made these for my next craft show. I thought that they would be great stocking stuffers, secret santa gifts, or something teachers could give their students for the holidays that would be very inexpensive. I used the 1 x 8 amuse cello bags and added a topper using the words from the naughty or nice stamp set. I stamped a small heart for the finishing touch!

craft and vendor show

On Sunday my church had their fall festival turkey dinner along with a craft and vendor show. It was a beautiful day and many people came out to have a delicious dinner and browse among the many crafters and vendors. It was a great day to meet new people and spread the word of amuse studio!
