sweet birthday

I made this card for my boss' birthday. She will be celebrating her "sweet" birthday this weekend. The hey cupcake stamp set is great for making fabulous cards. I love the mermaid paper in all styles...solid, chevron, and pinstripe!

tile coasters

These tile coasters make great gifts. I am helping my boss make a variety of these for her family's holiday get together. You can make your own by using your favorite stamp set and Stazon ink. You can find the tiles at Lowes or Home Depot. These tiles were purchased at a tile store. I love the look of the white Stazon on these slate tiles.

happy birthday

Miss Emily is celebrating her birthday!

It is my daughter, Emily's birthday today! She is 22 years old. I made a card similar to this for my other daughters birthday last month and loved it so much I did another for Emily using different colors. The itty bitty birthday set is perfect for this as well as the let's get merry set. Happy birthday Emily!

tiny packs

I covered tiny packs of Orbit gum with petite polka dot cardstock, added a punched snowflake and a tiny red jewel. I think these turned out adorable. A great little stocking stuffer.

on my nice list...

Working on items for upcoming craft shows...these nugget packs are always a huge hit at every show. I love coming up with new designs each year and this year turned out very cute.

A fun event

I was in Columbus on Wed. visiting my sister-in-law and her friend Doreen. We all went to a fundraising event/luncheon and had a great time supporting the Christ Child Society and do a little shopping. To top the afternoon off we enjoyed a great fashion show.

The tables were beautiful!

We enjoyed a delicious lunch and dessert was provided in the form of a cookie decorated to go with the theme of the days events. The cookies were quite delicious!
So glad to have joined Melissa and Doreen for the day.

trick or treat banner

Another treat my sister gave me was this Halloween banner she made using the banner die and a variety of amuse studio products. I have it hanging in my kitchen. I love how her mind works and how she creates such wonderful treasures. Thanks Shari!

trick or treat candy box

My sister ROCKS! 
She created this amazing little candy box using all amuse products (excludes box and candy). She painted the box black and then cut out a piece of wood for the back and designed the haunted Halloween cute. My favorite part is how she cut out each little trick or treater. She is very talented at what she does. The detail cannot be appreciated in a picture. Thank you Shari for such a wonderful "treat"!

thank you...

I love it when one of my stamp club friends will send me a photo of one of their creations. Casey used one of my favorite stamp sets from amuse....friend to friend. The kraft cardstock is very popular and she did a great job on her card. Thank you Casey for sharing with us.

I made this card for both of the girls that were here for 8 weeks doing their clinicals. I gave them each a Roell family cookbook so they will always remember their time spent with us and all the dinners we had together. Best of Luck to Kelsey, Emily and of course our own miss Alison!

boot support

I made these boot supports for both my daughters for their birthdays. I bought swim noodles and cut them into thirds using an electric knife... not just for carving your cut through the swim noodle with ease!  They can now put them inside their boots to keep them upright.
