Baby girl caddy

My cousin just had a beautiful baby girl named Emily!  We are so happy for them!  She is crafty as well so I knew she would appreciate the gift I made for her  :)  Anyone who has poked around my blog will know that I had gotten some caddy's at a recycling place and I love to alter them, there are a few examples and before & after pics HERE and HERE.

This cute little bear is an SVG from Designs on Cloud 9  I ran it through the Cuttlebug with the dot folder.
I made the banner with a Close To My Heart stamp set called Pennant Alphabet.

 Finished with cellophane which I think was a bit sloppy because my 2 year old came in just as I was trying to wrap it and was getting into all of my Spellbinder dies!  So needless to say I rushed to finish it  LOL!  It could have been worse :)  At any rate it stayed together and she really liked it and that's what matters!

Yankees magnet and acrylic block tip!

I made a magnet for my husbands locker at work.  Mind you he works in know...Red Sox Nation!  Needless to say he's outnumbered there but he loves to torture them!  LOL!!  This is an old stamp set from Autumn Leaves and the ROCKS are letters from another license plate set and don't remember who made it!  I'm bad but it's old too!

Here is the back, I added some chipboard for support.  Stamp by Verve.

Ok so here's my tip.  I was looking for my really large acrylic block and can't find it...I rarely use it.  I was going bonkers looking when it finally hit me...I could use the embossing plate from my Cuttlebug!!  Duh!  Well it worked great!  And definitely large enough.  So don't waste $ on a large block just find something else to use  :)

I am entering this in Tammy's Scrapin Corners challenge this week which is #14 For the Boys.  And linking to The Sunday Showcase Party #106 and Made By You Monday.

JDE Inks and Such Challenge

It's time for another Jackson's Digital Expressions Challenge!  As usual it's Anything Goes and I'm featuring one of the new releases Just Purses II.  I tried something different today,  I colored my image in with Copics (pink RV63 and Cool Gray No. 5 on the handle) and Pearl Ex on the bag and the light purple flower under the paper flower.  I used silver, interference violet, duo red-blue and flamingo pink.  Unfortunately, the shimmer does not show up in any photo!  You'll have to trust me when I say it's a very pretty effect!  LOL!  Papers by Coredinations - Gemstones and stamp by Verve.

Graduation Candy Poem

Hi all,

I'm trying to get ready for my daughter's graduation from high school tomorrow!  Really really having a hard time with it!  (sniff...sniff)  so I'm doing some therapy ;)  I made these for my daughter and some of her friends.  I found the poem HERE but tweaked it a little. I created the 2012 file in MTC, banner is an SVG  from Designs on Cloud 9, tag is a Spellbinders die and the little pails were from Target's dollar bins.  I like them they're so cute  :)

Lighthouse Birthday

Here's a birthday card I made for my sister-in-law who loves lighthouses. This is an image from that comes pre-colored or plain digi image, also comes with two coordinating digi papers.  I chose to color mine with Prismacolor pencils...I know shocking!  LOL!  And I haven't used mulberry paper in years!  I'm entering this in their challenge this month.
