Butterfly Easels!

These butterflies are fluttering all over Splitcoast Stampers and related blogs lately! I made a whole plate of them!

They are pretty easy - just cut a large butterfly on the fold for the easel using the butterfly die cut for the Big Shot. Then attach the two butterflies in the front and you are done!

Club Project Wedding!

These are the 3 wedding cards we will be making on Monday night.

Love Birds....

The DSP on this card is Elegant Filagree that's retiring : (

A Wedding Cake! This one uses the Elegant Lines Embossing folder for the Big Shot and the new triple punch for the cake top.

See the 'frosting' between the layers? I used a thin strip of cardstock and ran it through the crimper for a finished look. This card idea came from Linda A's blog 'polkadots and petals', although I did change a few things.

Super simple card but very classy.

You may remember this card from last fall. I made this for my brother's wedding and really liked it, it's very elegant (and cased right out of the catalog!). The "happy I do day' has a jewl and is heat embossed for a shiny finish - but it's difficult to see in this photo.

Club Members - I will see you on Monday!

Graduation and Teacher Gifts

This is a 5th grade graduation card that I made for some friends of ours' daughter. (sorry the picture is blurry - I'm not sure if my new camera is a dud or if it's me : ) This card uses the owl punch and Melon Mambo polka dot DSP. I had to make it girly-looking!

Another blurry picture but you have to see the matching envy!

And the gift - I made a juice pouch bag and put a pair of flip flops inside.

These are the juice pouch bags I made for my sons' teachers and student teachers. Whew! Now I need to make a couple more - one for me and one for Sam.
I'm liking the Kool-Aid JAmmers better than Capri Sun for these right now because of the graphics and bold letters. Fun!
