wheely deal

I am so glad I got to use my stems and silhouette wheel and my all time favorite color Always artichoke! this card took less than 5 minutes! I wheeled the back ground on mellow moss in always artichoke ink. I cut a piece of very vanilla and also wheeled that. Then using the your photo corners punch cut a corner and also cut a section of always artichoke to back the very vanilla. Lastly on a scrap of very vanilla in always artichoke ink stamp a a flower from small flowers set and punch with 1/2 inch punch. If you are still interested in the wheel deal click here to veiw and contact me by Wednesday morning. I will pay the shipping if you place an order over $50.00 Contact me at Thanks for looking Virginia.

Life's a beach!

Using the Life is a breeze stamp set and the wheel deal still available till Wednesday!
I made the summer page. It's been warm around here for the last two weeks and this page reminds me of the fun to come this summer.
Page started with a so saffron 12x12 sheet I used summer sun and night of navy for the photo corners. I rolled with the fishy wheel I got from my Wheely deal on vellum and on a strip of bordering blue that I ripped to mimic waves, in Night of navy ink. I cut a circle using my coluzzel in whisper white. I cut in half a sheet of blue to create a frame for my pictures. I stamped several images with night of navy ink and summer sun on whisper white. I cut some out, but punched quite few soooo much easier! Then I layed it all out and here is my life's a beach page thanks for looking, Virginia

I'm Back!

Wow vacation is wonderful but I missed stamping! I have a few projects to share that I have been meaning to show you. This page was last month's Scrapbook page.
Stamps Big flowers small flowers, Wanted, so many scallops, Wonderful words.
Ink Ruby red, River rock
Paper Kraft, very vanilla, river rock, ruby red, true thyme, ginger blossom designer series paper
Accessories True thyme ribbon, crimper, stampin Dimensionals, Tag Punch, assorted circle punches and scallop punch
I started with a 12X12 sheet of craft paper. Placed a full 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of very vanilla paper and centered it at the top of the Kraft paper. Cut a 2 Inch strip of DS paper and then snipped the ends to create a flower box and adhered it with stampin dimensionals at the bottom. I stamped on assorted scraps of very vanilla and river rock in both ruby red and river rock ink. I punched and cut out images and played with the layout. I created a Dahlia fold flower as the center piece. I used ribbon for the stems and made the leaves using true thyme strips of paper. You fold the strips length wise and run them through the crimper. open up the strip and using your oval punches punch out the leaves. Cut two thin strips of ruby red paper to make the window frame and then using the blossom cut outs from the occasions mini assemble and place flowers using snail adhesive and dimensionals.
