Rock star birthday

Sports-oriented card

Last week, I shared a patriotic card made with the Baby's First framelits. That card was actually my second design using the shirts -- this is the first one. My husband is SUPER-athletic, and has started running marathons near his birthday. Since my idea of exercise involves walking to the kitchen to get another glass of wine, I'm floored by the commitment and willpower my husband has. For his birthday, I wanted to celebrate his unique awesomeness.

I trimmed onesie die cuts into shirts, using paper from the Flashback DSP set and then grunged it up a bit with some sponging. The one on the left actually looks like a bike shirt to me, so if you have a biker in your life, this might be good for them, too. You could also make soccer shirts in your kid's team colors, rock band shirts ... you get the idea.

If you do make a shirt card, let me know! I'd love to see how you mix up this design to make it yours.

Three cheers for the USA!

Patriotic card using Stars decorative mask

Today, our family said goodbye to the German exchange student who has been visiting with us for the last two weeks. We'll miss her!!

I put together a little travel bag with granola bars, tylenol, tissues, mints, and this very American card, to wish her well on the trip home.

The design was inspired by one that I made for my husband's birthday -- I'll share that one next week. Recognize the shirt dies? No? That's the onesie die from the Baby's First framelit set, with one snip to square off the bottom. I sponged around the edges to give some texture, and added letters with small dies from my stash. In the background, stars sponged with the Hearts and Stars decorative mask add a little more patriotic flair. I tucked in a little "Friends forever" banner to make this a perfect "See you again one day" message.

  • Banner Greetings (retired)


  • Real Red base, plus scraps for die cutting

Tweet treats for the teens

My kids are GIANT. Way too big for Easter bunny baskets. But ... they're not too old to like a surprise treat.

This year, we were up in the mountains for Easter morning. I needed transportable treats! I found exactly one each of three bags big enough to fit the goodies I'd bought. *sigh. Making do with what I have, check!

These tags, made using the Cheerful Critters set, made the random assortment of treat bags into something special, plus made it easy for our visiting exchange student to take hers home if she wants.

Stamp sets

  • Cheerful Critters (2015 Occasions catalog)


  • Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White scraps


  • Memento black

Tools and accessories

  • Blendabilities in Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, and Smoky Slate
  • Scalloped Tag Topper punch
  • Pearls, colored with Blendabilities

Easter Shaker Card

Easter Shaker card
Today's card is no April's Fools joke.  It is absolutely adorable.  Are you in need of an adorable Easter card?  A fellow demo, Marcia Shields created this adorable shaker card for a shoebox swap.  A shoebox swap is an opportunity for stampers to get together and make cards that other stampers have created.  As a demonstrator, you bring a completed card and all the supplies for other stampers to create your card.  It is a great opportunity to learn new techniques and try a style that you may not normally be drawn to creating.  It's also a lot of fun!
inside message
I love how bright and cheery this card is for Easter!  This card uses the SAB DSP, some In Color sequins, Oval Framelits, and an adorable Easter stamp set.  To create this card, you need to adhere the DSP layer to the Coastal Cabana card stock and put them both through the Big Shot to cut out the oval using the Oval Framelits Dies.
