I’m loving this months arrows and numbers challenge at Scrap It Girl
One of the things I really enjoy besides being creative is repurposing. If I can do both at one time, I’m over the moon excited! I think that’s why I just fell in love with this card.
Do you see something at the top corner? Yep, it’s plain ole baby wipes.
I bought these at Kroger when they were on sale for $1 each. They are perfect for my purse, as my hands can’t tolerate the hand sanitizers or industrial soaps in public restrooms. I always have a pack of baby wipes.
I have been intrigued with that little “door” and finally decided to repurpose it into an interactive card.
Here’s the inside. I fussy cut the cake (heat embossed and marker-colored it too) and I put it on an action wobble spring, which makes it jiggle.
The card also opens like a regular card, offering a place to stamp or write a greeting.
And to think it all started with this! (I’ll use the orange “door” on another card or scrap page soon!
All products (for the exception of the happy birthday embossing folder and the action wobbles) are from Stampin’ Up!
Let me know if you have any questions about my card or the supplies used! Join the challenge at Scrap It Girl for a chance to win some goodies! And please check out my Stampin’ Up! store!

Today’s FTF for the Scrap it Girl team is “favorite electric die cutting machine”.
Well, this is easy-peasy in my opinion!
I have both the Cricut and Silhouette Cameo, which means I also have a lot of cartridges for my Cricuts. One of the things that sold me on the Silhouette was the fact that I can order a single design and my bundle came with $10 worth of free software of my choice from the Silhouette store. To be fair, Cricut is now offering a similar setup but I love my Cameo. It’s projects like this one that made me even more excited about my new Silhouette:
Isn’t that bottle cute?
It was so stinkin easy to select layers to omit so I could have a simple vinyl design.
And that bottle? It has a mister, which was perfect recently for a very hot and humid day in Savannah, Ga. I found it at Academy Sports
Thanks for stopping by! Be blessed.

It’s time for Scrap it Girl’s Favorite Things Friday!
This week, it’s washi tape!
Here are my “go to” favorites, the MOST fave being the pointing hand.
I love washi because it’s easy to use and adds such fun elements to my cards and scrapbooks.

I’m always excited for the Scrap It Girl Favorite Things Friday! It gives me a challenge to create something fun.
Today I’m blogging from my tiny crafting corner in my RV, somewhere on the east coast just steps away from a long pier where manatees and dolphins frolic in the sea. It’s a sweet spot, if only for a while, then it’s back to reality!
Speaking of reality, let’s get back to it!
This Friday’s assignment is to use our favorite embossing folder.
Mine is Beautifully Baroque from Stampin’ Up!
It adds such elegance to a card.
I used it with Graphic 45 paper, the Place in Time collection.
Here’s my finished card.
Hope you enjoy it and maybe get a bit of inspiration to join the fun! If so, just click HERE and add your creation!
Thanks for stopping by, be blessed!

It’s time for the monthly challenge for Scrap it Girl!
The May 2014 challenge for SIG designers is to create a layout or card using a choice of Mother’s Day or Mother Nature. I had this card in mind and decided to give it a whirl.
My mom as well as mother in law have both passed so I’m hoping a friend might need this little card.
I used all Stampin Up products to make the card and lined envelope. Here’s the list:
Whisper white card stock
Ink: Pistachio Pudding Crisp Cantaloupe Summer Starfruit Coastal Cabana Island Indigo
Stamps: (retired, but you can choose more here!)
Blessings from Heaven
Best of Butterflies
Chevron Embossing folder
Spiral flower die (FUN!!)
5/8 organza ribbon
Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper
I did notice one boo-boo, and that is the pretty envelope- this card really needs a handmade box due to the 3D rose! Oh well, it’s the thought that counts, right?
With two grown kids, two in-law kids and 3 grandLittles, I’m looking forward to Mother’s Day this year.
I hope you have a happy and blessed Mother’s Day too!
Thanks for stopping by! God bless,
