The Great Outdoors.

Did I tell you that I love the shrooms from The Great Outdoors set? I do - I think it is too cute and for some reason reminds me of the Smurfs....

Bloomin Doodles

I wanted to show another card from Bloomin' Doodles today. I love how simple this card is and how quickly it came together. I added shimmerz to the flowers and it gave it that extra bit of sparkle - although you can't tell in the picture.

Sneak Peak #3

Today is the final day of the sneaks peaks! My first card showcases Oh Christmas Tree, I love this set (have I said that before) I used the tree you see as the main image in white for my background paper as well, stamping it in Kiwi on white paper. The second card, is from Love and Joy Labels - so perfect for all those upcoming Christmas and Holiday gifts you'll be making! Again I stamped the background (red) with a versamark ink to give a bit something more. I hope you enjoyed the sneak peaks! Tomorrow everything will be on sale!

I have two sneak peaks to share with you today - first up is from the set The Great Outdoors. Loving it! Love the sentiments - so very clever! This set also has a corrdinating digital paper - loving the shrooms!
Next to show is an image from Cute as a Bug. I thought this would make a fun baby card - a little different from the overdose of pink! This set has coordinating digital paper as well!

Hey Sunshine

Sweet Summer! Strawberries make me think of summer, this is another image from LAD's new Monthly Mix - Hey Sunshine! I'm just loving it! It has so many fun images to play with! Hard to tell in the picture, but the strawberry and cupcake have just a bit of shimmerz on them.

So FUN!!!!

I got the new Monthly Mix from Lizzie Anne in the mail today and couldn't wait to ink it up! There were so many choices! It fills up two cases! First up is the owl in the tree - I just love this little guy! I also love to make my animals a color other than what is expected.

This card is a pocket card - great for a birthday gift card or really any reason for gift giving. The gift card can go in the pocket and I can add a sentiment across the bottom when I'm ready to use it.
Go to Lizzie Anne to get all the details on the Monthly Mix and see how you can get it for just $25!

July Single

It looks pretty plain - huh? but it's for my girls. Everytime I am at my table stamping - they ask me to stamp them something - usually it is one of the little people from LAD. So I made them a box full of stamped images for them to color. (Did you see the cute new cheerleader? - LOVE her!) Now i can just hand them one - or maybe even give them the whole box!!!!

I was up for the Project of the Month for LAD today - I decided to make a Summer Fun Kit - the possibilities are endless! I put a popsicle kit in mine along with a water bottle and drink mix pouch, hand sanitizer, spray on sunscreen, chapstick ( i got the idea for this here, changed up the dimensions and such) drink stir sticks, and a card (include a fun popsicle recipe in here). What a fun little gift for someone or just to have all together in one spot of your house - you summer fun kit!
Starting today is Lizzie Anne's Anniversary Celebration - lasting through the 14th. Great things are in store this month! Everyday a different set will be spotlighted and on sale - so be sure to check it daily to stock up on all the great sets!
Here's a few more popsicle recipes:
Watermelon Popsicles
2 cups watermelon cubed remove seeds
1 cup apple juice
Blend in blender until smooth. Pour into Popsicle molds and freeze.
Multi Layer Fruit Pops
2 Cups sliced fresh strawberries
¾ Cup sugar, divided
1 1/3 Cups fresh peaches, sliced
2 cups diced watermelon
Puree in blender strawberries and ¼ cup sugar. Pour small amount in molds or paper cups about 1/3 full. Put in Popsicle sticks. Freeze. Puree peaches and ¼ cup sugar in blender. Pour over frozen strawberry layer. Freeze. Cube watermelon and remove seeds. Puree watermelon and ¼ cup sugar in blender. Pour over frozen peach layer and freeze.
This one would be fun to alternate fruit and yogurt or ice cream layers!
