More Punch Art

These punch art fish were made by Ashley for the punch swap. Keeping with the Disney theme - these are Flounders cousins. Just kidding. But they are cute.

Mini Composition Books

Okay I don't know why some photos do this. I can view them correctly on my computer and then when I upload them in blogspot it flips them to the side and I can't figure out how to rotate it in blogspot. So just turn your computer 90 degrees and you should be able to see them okay. These are some mini composition books that I made for convention. I wanted to make matching pens with them but have not had time to start that. I had seen a few pictures of some and didn't realize how small they really are. I had a hard time finding them at an Office Supply Store. Someone had posted that you can find these at the dollar store but I had no luck there. So if you look for them - think small.

Punch Art - Fairy

Here is another Punch Art Character made with the Stampin Up Punches.

This character is for those in my Punch Art Swap in group 1 I believe. I think I need to travel with a background piece of paper so I don't need to improvise with things around a hotel room. This was again cased frfom stamp_mom on SCS. This again would be great on a scrapbook page - I am thinking Disney's Tinkerbell. This is the last thing I have to work on wile on the road so tonight I think I will go and maybe see a show in Vegas :)

Punches: 1" Circle, 3/4" Circle, 5 Petal, Scallop, Word Window

Paper: Yo Yo Yellow, Green Galore, Blush Blossom, Vellum Cardstock

Punch Art Swap

Please excuse the lighting on this photo. Hotel lighting is always the worst for picture taking. I'll update the picture later. This is one of the characters I am making for the Punch Art Swap I hosted. So if you are in group 2 I believe this is your special character :) This would be great for a scrapbook page. I am thinking - Disney's the Little Mermaid :) This was cased from Stamp_Mom on SCS. I am planning to put together a book of Punch Art to show all the wonderful things one can make with the punches.
Paper: Rose Red, Blush Blossom, Pink Passion, Green Galore, Lovely Lilac, Taken With Teal
Punches: Scallop, 1" Circle, Boho Blossoms, 5 Petal

Pun Fun

I saw this card on SCS posted by justbehappy. I love the little rocket in the the Pun Fun set. It is a cute and easy Pun Fun card and first time I have used the East Coast Prep paper.

Sunday, July 13, 2008


I bought this set a year ago after seeing such cute and fun things with it. I even mounted it right away - but sadly never used it. Then I saw this card made by Jodi Collins and just fell in love with this set all over again and had to stamp with it. This is totally cased from Jodi with a few minor changes. The only difference is that I used Copic Markers for the coloring instead of watercoloring with a blender pens and the number of items popped out and the background stamp.

Stamps: Unfrogretable
Ink: Basic Black, Purely Pomegranate
Paper: Whisper White, Purely Pomegranate, Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi, Groovy Guava
Accessories: Purely Pomegranate Double Stitched Ribbon, Dimonsionals

Water Bottles

These are very quick and easy to make. I wanted to make some for my nieces baby shower and use up some of my designer series paper scraps.

More Altered Notebooks

Made some more altered notebooks for the Farmers Market. This week it was not as crowded as it was a couple of weeks ago. We think it may have been due to the holiday weekend. I should say we hope it was due to the holiday weekend. We now have 6 weeks to prep for the next one :) Let the stamping begin again :)

Tabletop Scrapbook

This is the last of the Tabletop Scrapbooks that I am making for awhile. Made 10 these past couple of days for the Farmers Market. This one is made out of the L3 Hostess Set Just 4 You, This was cased from Brandi. I really love this kit.

Kristina's Color Challenge Continued

Decided to play with this a little more after speaking to Ashley. Wanted to see what it would look like with gray flowers and changed the ribbon.
