My son (The Boy) and his beautiful wife Em are expecting their third baby in the next few weeks. His or her arrival brings a total of 5 grandLittles in our blessed family.

There’s a baby shower tonight and among the surprises I have for Em is this sign.


While planning this gift I realized that I’m not so sure I like telling the anonymous public that there’s a baby in the house, so I decided “Quiet Time” would get the point across just fine.

I started with this inexpensive chalkboard blank from Walmart.


I wanted teal vinyl but didn’t have any so I chose the green, loaded the mat into my Silhouette, chose the font and BadaBing! It’s a gift.



Well, actually it became a gift after I weeded the vinyl letters, drew little dashes with my Expo marker and added some perfectly matching  (green with white dashes!) ribbon from Stampin’ Up! This ribbon is discontinued BUT there are lots of gorgeous ribbons here in my store!


Come back later to see the super cute cards I made to go on the gifts!

Y’all have a blessed day! Thanks for stopping by!

I am so excited when my Paper Pumpkin surprise arrives in the mail each week! Even better is when I can use part of the kit to create something entirely different! The Paper Pumpkin for April 2015 features the base that this sweet greeting is built upon. That kraft sleeve is the Paper Pumpkin part. All other goodies are from the 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up annual catalog or the 2015 Occasions Catalog.

Y’all know how much I love vintage (as does Shelli Gardner, co-founder and CEO of Stampin’ Up!), so I couldn’t wait to put all these beautiful elements together. image


And the fact that there is not a specific sentiment means this beauty can be personalized for any occasion.

As far as supplies are concerned, I had them all listed here with links to my store, but there was a glitch and I lost all of the text in this post! So sad when that happens!  I will gather those items and list again, complete with links. Meanwhile, visit my store here! 

Thanks for stopping by! God bless.

Guy card: techniques and products focus!

What a week this has been! I began on Sunday, meeting with a super sweet lady who loves Stampin’ Up as much as I do, then on Monday I signed up a wonderful friend to be on my Stampin’ Up team. I received a phone call tonight from my new (Sunday) friend and she is going to sign up as well! That makes my downline number FIVE! I am so excited! They are all talented demonstrators and I am just thrilled to be a part of this amazing group of women.

I’ll spend all next week making sure I’m up on all the latest so I can encourage my downline to succeed in their dreams. What a gift God has given me. I do not understand the timing, and I won’t question it… I’m just incredibly, wholeheartedly blessed.

To celebrate, I made this video! LOL! Please subscribe to my channel… it’s brand new and I promise to keep it fun and informative! God bless!

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!
