I ended up not getting around to making this project till today (I know insert roll your eyes here). Was a pretty busy week and yesterday we worked cows (shots and pouring for manage) finally after being behind on that for like 4 months and of course it didn't go well cause I needed to be done early and home to work. It's like the cows just knew. lol I had to chase a calf twice through waist deep snow and of course I had all my heavy gear on. At one point I was ready to just lay down in the snow and give up. I so can't wait for this snow business to be OVER!!! haha I of course was shot when we finally did get home and woke up this morning just as tired. So today I made a card for me :) lol

IMG_0813

O lala right? This set is AWESOME SAUCE!! Not bad for not really feeling like creating anything. I love that it has matching framelits to go with it too! It also pairs awesomely with the designer paper from the Sale- A- Brations Brochure called Carried Away. Lots of fun details, and layers to this baby. My favorite was adding all them rhinestones to the hot air balloon :) I don't know why but it was fun to do. hehe

IMG_0820

Inside I kept pretty simple. I love decorating the inside of my cards it makes it feel more complete to me. I promptly after creating this went and took a nap ;)


Now you'll want to head on over to Brownwyn's Blog where I know you will love her project!!

Family Gifts; Family Jar

Happy Saturday Peeps!

Yes we are alive and well I've just been incredible busy and have not had time to create or post to my blog. I am in the process of several major events here that I am making decorations for, lots of regular work, work and work, tax time, plus lots of different things going on. There is not enough hours in the day! We did have my mom's retirement party it was a success and I will be sharing photos in a couple of weeks here. I am sorry I worried some of you but we are okay and I will not be posting regular till I get stuff done and caught up.

Customer Updates:

I did mail out the catalogs weeks ago so if you didn't receive one please let me know and I will check my list. Everyone who placed orders in Dec and Jan all of your thank you goodies were mailed out too!

Family Jar

This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made! If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE. It is a family jar. I saw this idea last year on pinterest and thought how cool I gotta make this! The idea is all year long record the awesome things that happened and then on new year's eve read through everything. How cool right? Another demo/friend did this with her family and it's become a family tradition for them. This uses the Layering Love Stamp Set (W) item #141962 (C) item #141965 which I thought was fitting for this idea!

IMG_9955

Theses were such a blast to make! We made a total of 4 of them. I should have made one for us but didn't even think about it. lol Super easy to create too!

Supplies Needed to create Family Jar
Stamp: Layering Love
Ink: Early Espresso
Paper: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Copy Paper
Acc.: 1 3/8 Circle Punch, Very Vanilla 1/2 Lace Trim, Gold Binder Clips, Pearls, Jar, Paint, Silhouette

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Paint the jar lid in your color choice and let dry for several days.
  • Using the Silhouette cut out the vinyl in black and attach to the front of the jar. Sorry I forgot to measure the jar. lol I got them at Target in the $1 spot last spring.
  • Create a pouch to hold slips of copy paper out of the Early Espresso card stock. They don't need to be that big but I really wanted the saying on the pocket. Punch one end of the Early Espresso card stock using the 1 3/8 Circle Punch. This will make it easier to grab the slips of paper.
  • Ink the stamp from Layering Love Stamp Set in Early Espresso and stamp onto the Very Vanilla card stock. Glue to the front of the pocket and added some Pearl Basic Jewels to finish it.
  • At the top I clipped a Gold Binder Clip to the pocket then thread some Very Vanilla 1/2 Lace Trim through the binder clip and tied it around the top of the jar.
  • Then I typed up a note to add with the jar to let each family know how the jar works.

Here is all four of them. Again I either did people's favorite colors or the color that would best in there home since I didn't know who would actually leave them sitting out. Pretty awesome I think!

Retirement Party; Invite

Invite

Wow Peeps dh and I had one VERY busy crazy weekend. We made some awesome progress though! Hubby got the tile laid by my parents front door FINALLY....yeppers we still have stuff to finish at the parents place from our project this fall. Then we figured out my parents new kitchen layout. Parents need new kitchen cabinets BAD but we were going to wait till after the wedding....but mom's dish washer and stove started to not work, so new appliances had to be purchased....and of course the new appliances won't fit into the openings because it's an old modeler home and a LOT has changed since it was built. Just WOW right? Yes this is going to be squeezed into everything else we have going on. I CRUMBA It's exciting though and it will be awesome when it's done! What a weekend.

I mentioned the other day that my beautiful mama is retiring! She is starting another chapter of her life and we are all so excited for her! I personally am hoping this means more apple pie ;) hehe j/k mom. This is the invite I created for her special retirement party; all 60 of these babies. The invite uses the Bundle Birthday Fiesta Photopolymer Stamp Set & Fiesta Time Framelites item #142268 on pg. 11 in the Stampin' Up! Catalog. We are having one big Fiesta!!

Birthday Fiesta

I can't even begin to tell how awesome and fun this set is!! I was meh about it but WOW amazing things can be done with this beauty! Of course it has a lama in it, I honestly don't understand the craze over them to me there just like goats only a bigger version nothing special. lol I don't know maybe because I grew up on a farm. Please don't report me to the lama lovers. hehe When you purchase as a bundle you can save 10%!

IMG_3098

60 cactus and flowers die cut out thanks to hubby. He's the best I just stamped them! I ADORE that cactus!!

IMG_0716

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • I took the stamp from Birthday Fiesta Stamp Set; inked it in Tempting Turquoise and stamped around the edges of the Tempting Turquoise card stock.
  • On the left side I added a strip of Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper.
  • We printed out the wording onto Whisper White card stock. That was a little trick finding fonts and figuring out the spacing but hubby is a genius at this.

IMG_3096

  • After printing I cut them down. We printed so we could get 4 to a sheet of card stock.
  • I stamped the Fiesta in Melon Mambo onto the Whisper White card stock and then stamped the little flower on the right in Crushed Curry.
  • Then started the assembling process. I glued the Whisper White to the Tempting Turquoise card stock.
  • At the top is the one banner that was die cut out using the Big Shot and Fiesta Framelits in the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper. Next is the Crushed Curry banner. I die cut it out using the Big Shot and Fiesta Framelits, then I stamped onto the Crushed Curry card stock.
  • On the bottom left side I added the cactus and flower.

I love how it turned out and the colors are so festive! Perfect for this big celebration!
