So easy and so precise!

Here is a beautiful centerpiece I gave my mother-in-law for Easter. I had heard about these tulips in a jar and  was in Kroger's one morning before Easter and found them.
They are just about as pretty as can be!

Happy Anniversary to my wonderful sis-in-law Melissa and her husband!

recipe swap

I participated in another recipe swap with fellow consultants. I chose Mother's Day. This recipe was in memory of my Mom. She loved the color orange. Marigolds were one of her favorite flowers to plant and the Marvelous Marigolds stamp set was perfect for this.

Below is a link to all the wonderful recipe pages created by fellow consultants. Everyone did a great job and I can't wait to try out some delicious recipes!

easter treats

A muse Studio has been very busy making Easter treats. I have loved making treats like these for all holiday occasions and these will definitely be added to my Easter treat making. I like to use Palmer mint patties...though Linda found some yummy treats at Trader Joe's to use.
The yellow gingham just gives these treats a cheerful look. 
Thanks Linda for all your inspiration!

I pop dotted the little party hats for some dimension.

birthday wishes

I love the new 6 x 6 paper pack from A Muse studio. 
It is so easy to create a birthday card. 
I added a few flowers from our new flower dies to add a bit more color to this card.

Splash can be fun!

Linda over at a muse studio shared another fun technique using splash spray ink. 

  1. Grab a small paintbrush, your favorite Splash! ink, a clear block and a water misting bottle
  2. open the top of your Splash! ink and put a few drops on the clear block
  3. Mist the Splash! drops with water (3-4 pumps should be fine)
  4. Mix the Splash! and water
  5. Paint
                  So Easy!

for Mom

Linda, over at amuse studio, created a beautiful Mother's Day card using a very simple technique. You stamp the image 3 times without re-inking your stamp.
 Look how gorgeous this card turned it!

Thanks for the inspiration Linda!
