I so love this Storytime DSP.  It is on the retired list and will be gone forever soon so get it while you can.  So today I decided to make up some projects using the Storytime paper.  I do a school days album for each of my kids with just their school photos and info of that year.  Here are a couple that I did for my kids for this year.  I made 5 of them today even though my youngest is not school age yet I figured I would start him one.

With teacher appreciation next week I also made up these cute nugget tins.  I haven't bought the nuggets yet so it is not completely finished.  But I do have all the strips cut and ready to go.  :)
I do have a few full sheets left of DSP from the Storytime that is so stinkin' cute that I am going to get some 12x12 frames and hang it up in the toy room.

HSS #158 Sneak Peek & So Sweet Page

This is the sketch for this week over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  
 I flipped it a little for my card and can you see the SNEAK PEEK?  I know squeal.  Love it!  This little  label comes in a set with 6 others and it has a matching punch!  YIPPY!  I also used two of the new in-colors Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantaloupe.  YUMMY!  These will be available to purchase on May 31, 2013.  

This technique of tiling in the background was shown at Regionals.  It is done with the simply scored diagonal plate.  Once you have your score lines you sponge away from the groove to give the elusion of tile.  So FUN!

I know this is retired.  It is an oldie but a goodie.  The Sweet Shop.  I saw this page over at All I Create and just had to recreate it for a Valentine page of my kiddos.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stampin'!

Blue Ribbon Birthday

Such a happy day!  When I woke up this morning I had an e-mail from the gals over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I was one of the Artist Picks for their color challenge!  Check out my cool badge I received on the right.  :)  So made my day!  Thanks ladies you are amazing!

Scrapbook Page #23
My oldest daughter just turned 12 the end of March.  It is so bitter sweet to see my kids grow up.  I love to watch them learn and grow, but hate sometimes to see them become so independent.  Just the realization that our time with her at home is getting shorter makes me sad.  Kinsley is such a sweet fun daughter.

For todays page I used:
Melon Mambo Embossing Powder 123223
Color Spritzer Tool 107066
Basic Gray/Basic Black 1 1/4" Two-Toned Ribbon 129295

Thank for looking!

Scrapbook Page #19
Here is my page for today.  I am loving the clean crisp look and all the bright colors.  I am so ready for warm weather.  So trees just arrived yesterday for me to plant and it was blowing snow.  YUCK!

I used the Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP 126922 from the spring catalog.  
I love all the bright colors and fun patterns it has.  The fun thing about the double sided DSP is that if you don't like the pattern you can just flip it over and you have another option.  

Reminder:  Stampin' Up! Scrapbook Workshop Thursday, April 25th at 7:00pm.  Come make a 12x12 page for only $5.  Place an order that night and your page is FREE!  Call me to save your spot.

Have a great day and happy stampin'!
