Trivet and Coaster Sets

So one of my best friends Kristin is getting married this summer. Today was the bridal shower. These are the tile trivet and coaster sets I made for her.

I bought the tiles from Lowes and stamped the images with black StazOn. After baking the tiles for 30-45 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees, I let the tiles cool down and I sprayed them with a clear sealant.

I also gave her this card to go along with her beautiful gift.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week! I'm off to pass out, listening to the wonderful sounds of the rain outside my window!

Bridal Shower Prizes

Here are the prizes I made for the games we will be playing at Kristin's Bridal Shower on Sunday.

Here are the four cards I made that I am going to give out together as one prize. I think they turned out really cute!!

Here are the envelopes for the mini-note cards. I made all of these by hand since I didn't have any on hand and also didn't have a template for them.

This is the outside of a lip balm holder. I saw this idea on Splitcoast and decided it would be a cute prize to give away. The stamps are from an old SU Hostess Set called "Reason to Smile." I love the butterfly!!

Here is the inside of the holder. A girl can never have too much lip balm!
I love the sentiment. Thank you Chris for this set!!! I LOVE IT!!!

I think this card turned out super cute. I love the colors!!

Here is a card that has a bookmark as a part of the card. I think it turned out nice. I got the idea from a fellow stamper on Splitcoast.

Here is the bookmark by itself. I like this idea a lot!!

Here is another bookmark idea I got off of Splitcoast. Cute huh? So easy to make!!

Here are some gift tags I made - aren't they cute??

Well I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!! Enjoy the weather!! I love Spring time....

Sweet 16

Here is the beautiful card I made for my brother's girlfriend. Her Sweet 16th Birthday is today and I thought she would like this card from me. I based it off my very first swap I made when I was a SU demonstrator.

Have a wonderful week!

Scratch n' Sniff

I wanted to share with you all this really cute card that I made awhile ago at one of Chris' fun stamp camps. Although you won't be able to smell it, we made a scratch n' sniff card. We used black cherry Kool Aid mixed with clear embossing powder. We stamped the cherries, then used a Versamark pen to apply the embossing powder to just the cherries, and lastly heated the powder. I have had the card for about a year now and it still smells like cherries!! Well I hope I inspired you all to try this out. I love the idea =) Have a great week!

Fun Past Projects...

I was cleaning out my craft storage boxes and came across these cards I made awhile back and thought that they were too good to pass up sharing. I believe they are 5" x 5" cards. They fold close like a card board box would. My friend and fellow blogger Chris came up with the idea and let me use her materials to create them!! I miss our crazy fun stamp camps!!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a wonderful night!

Get well wishes for a special friend...

This is the get well card that I made for my special friend Chris. I thought she was having surgery this week so I made her a little pick-me-up card. Now the surgery has been postponed, but I already sent her the card. Hope she has a speedy recovery!!

Hope you all like it too!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Photo tag!

My blogging buddy Chris has challenged me to a game of photo tag. The rules say go to the 6th folder and share the 6th photo.

This is my photo. This is a picture of my younger brother Josh and his cat Goyannee (however you spell it... it means Cat in Korean). We call him Nannee for short. He's a beautiful Mainecoon, but a very heavy cat - 23 lbs!!

So, I'm supposed to tag others to play along: Chris, Nadia, Autumn, & Allison. Play along if you want to and if you do play, leave me a comment so I can go see what you came up with!

I've been tagged!!!

I've been tagged by Christine to play a fun game involving my photos. Here's the scoop - you go to the folder where you store your pictures, go to the 6th folder and select the 6th picture and post it on your blog along with the story that goes along with it. Here's my picture:

This is my kitty Milo. He was two years old in this picture. Goofy cat decided to climb into one of the bags that my mail came in. My bed is a bit messy considering I just got home from visiting family for the holidays. He fell asleep in there on my new shirts!! Too funny. He has a habit of climbing into strange places - the most recent being the dryer! I have a picture of that too... Too cute to pass up showing off! :~)

I am supposed to tag six more folks to play along, but I am not sure I have six more to tag. The ones I have that I could tag have already been tagged so... I'll just leave a comment for you, Christine, to see pictures of my cute kitty!!

Well I hope you enjoyed my pictures!

I hope to get some cards made this week for a few of my girlfriends who have upcoming birthdays. We'll see what I can come up with....

Have a great week!! Thanks for stopping by!! :~)
