Paper Pups Hi Card

I look at this cartridge all the time and think how cute it is but it seems like I never use it. Do you have any carts like that? Anyway, today I just wanted to make some simple cards to have on hand so that I could use them to just send a note to anyone. I think it is pretty cute for a really quick simple card. I am also glad I used this cart. Again I used stickles and liquid pearls. I seem to use them on everything. The ink is CTMH Cocoa and dog face stamp is Peachy Keen.

(The card looks bent in this picture but it actually the shadow)

Hello Kitty Strawberry


OK if you haven't seen her 100Th video yet you might want to go over to the The Pink Stamper's Blog and watch it! There is a great surprise at the end. I am not going to tell you what it is though....you just have to go watch. While you are there check out some of her other videos too! She has some great stuff there.

In the video she made the cutest card with the Hello Kitty Greetings strawberry. I loved this card so much I had to give it a shot. I didn't stamp mine because I made a bunch of them and thought I could stamp them as I use them. I do this often with cards, make a bunch and leave them blank. Then I can add the finishing touches when I actually use the card. Her finished card is wait cuter well because it is finished and because she stamped it and added some cute buttons but I still like mine! lol

Little box purse...

So lately I have been using liquid pearls. Every tried these? I don't know what it is but I LOVE them. Really I mean what does Ranger make that I don't love?? Anyway you can see all the colors if you click here. I use to look at these all the time before I finally bought them at the LSS. I just wasn't sure what I would do with pearl. I am so glad I did because now I use them all the time.

Here is a little box purse that I found on clearance. I think I paid a buck for it. It was so cute I just couldn't pass it up. So I decided to use it for a swap but I wanted to dress it up a little. I used stickles to give it some sparkle and you guessed it.....liquid pearls! Here is picture of the box and close up of the pearls.

Altered Journal

I made a couple simple gifts for a friend who has a birthday this week. I think they came out really cute and they so easy to make.

The journal I bought a while ago....actually I bought several of these, planned on using them for something, did use them, stuck them away. I found them a couple of days ago and thought they would make really cute altered gifts. The paper is from the Spring DCWV stack and the stamp is Close to my Heart. You can see the whole set if you click here I have had this set for a while now and love it. I find I can use it for a lot of different things.
The Starbucks bottle has starburst in it (yes I bought candy to match the paper,lol) and I have wanted to make some of these for a while now. I have tons of these bottles that I have been saving and finally used one! I just painted the lid and used the same paper that I used on the journal. Hopefully, she like it!

Cupcakes!

They seem to be the craze now! But these aren't for scrap booking or card making. These were eaten. I made these for my friend who had the birthday this week. They were so good! I actually filled them with chocolate and then did the tops. I only made 6 though because it took me forever.... and the Happy Birthday I cut with the Cricut.
