Welcome Baby Owen!

I finally got around to posting pictures from my best friend’s baby shower! (Talk about better late than never! lol) I was tasked to make all the lovely goodies with help from the wonderful mother to be and friends!

I absolutely love this picture frame we made for the wishing tree!

We stayed up until the wee hours of the night wrapping gift boxes and tying bows to make cute little stands for all the yummy food.  And the food was absolutely delicious!

I founds this adorable baby favor stamp set from PTI – it had all of these cute sayings like “Bun in the oven” and “About to Hatch” that were perfect to make into little tags/flags for food!

Who doesn’t love a ducky on a stick with banana budding?

These water bottles were too cute to even drink!

This was such a wonderful event filled with so much love and happiness! It’s so true when they say love is in the details… We love you baby Owen!


Chipboard Alphabets Letters – I heart you!

So I’ve had these chipboard alphabets stuffed away in my stampin’ stash for a while (at least a year) and I finally decided to use it!

Here is a happy birthday version:

The Greatest Thing…

About me… is you!

I looooooooooove this card!! For the girl chickie, I created a flower hat by using white sequins and added pink bling to the center. I took the conductor hat from my chickie train stamp and used it for the boy chickie. For the clouds, I used a variety of chalk inks to get that subtle color and then sprayed frost shimmer to give it that lovely frosty look.  Love it!

Chickie Choo Choo!

Just a little birthday wish from some cutie chickies! Choo choo!

When I saw this stamp from DeNami Design I had to have it! It’s soooo adorable I just squeal every time I use it.

For this card I used Copic Markers to color the chickies and added stickles to give the chickies a little glitter and glam. To make the clouds pop, I added some pink cardstock to the polkadot paper and cute little buttons.  Finally, I used glossy accents for the wheels and parts of the train!

I can’t wait to make more adorable cards using Denami Design Stamps!

This card is available for purchase at my etsy shop!

Chickies Like to Shake Shake It!

So I wanted to try something new…

So I’m shaking things up with shaker cards! My bestfriend sent me an awesome youtube video showing how to make your own shakers and I’m officially obsessed!

I’ve filled this shaker card with beads and star sequins.  I found a great way to store all these goodies along with my other craft essentials and will be sharing that in my next post!

Yellow Submarine!

Actually this one is silver! A yellow one is on the way!

I used clear cs to make a glass window on the submarine and loved how it turned out! I also stamped the submarine on glittery silver paper which gives it a nice finish.  This is also my first card using distressed inks correctly. YAY!

I really need to combine stamp sets more often!
