Looking Back…

Hello Lakeside Readers, Stampers, Scrap-Bookers and Paper-Crafters!  (I think that covers all of us)


I’m going to share with you my three favorite projects of 2010. The first one Is a card I made back in February. It’s perfect for this time of the year with Valentin’s Day closer then you think.


I call this card “THREE HEARTS & A BIRD”, for obvious reasons.


For the saying on this card I stamped “Heartfelt Thanks”from the Sweetheart Stamp Set, because I needed a thank you card. In the class we stamped “Love”from the Wonderful Words Stamp Set (retired). Both were embossed with White Embossing Powder.


Because I love the Two-Step Bird Punch and the Scalloped Heart to Heart Embosslit so much I decided to make another card using them.


For this card I cut pieces of:

Real Red Card Stock (10″ x &” and scored it at 5″) and

two (3″ x 3″) squares

     Blush Blossom Card Stock (4-1/2″ x ^-1/2″),

Regal Rose Card Stock (3″ x 3″)


I punched the Two-Step Bird out of Real Red Card Stock and with The Big Shot and the Scalloped Heart to Heart Embosslit Die I cut two hearts from Regal Rose Card Stock and one from Real Red Card Stock. I used 5/8″ Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon and Hodgepodge Hardware to complete the card with the perfect touches.


I’d love to hear from you in the comment section if you have a favorite project as well. Tomorrow I’ll share another and on Thursday the last one. Oh, by the way ladies I screwed up. 2011 isn’t a Leap Year, next year is. I guess I just got too excited.


Thanks for  re-visiting!

Today is Freddie’s Birthday…

I have been a very busy card-maker. In fact as busy as a bee…


There sure seems to be a lot of December birthdays! Yikes… This card I made for my closest friend Freddie. I just had to use Betsy the bee-keeper because I adore her. This one’s for you Freddie!




For this card I used Daffodil Delight and Basic Black Card Stock. On the smaller piece of Daffodil Delight I stamped the flower from Stampin’ Up!’s Just Buzzin’ By Stamp Set in More Mustard Ink then I used my White Gel Pen and colored in the petals of the flowers. I stamped Betsy in Basic Black Ink on a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and water-colored her in with my Aqua Painter, Markers and Pencils. The happy birthday greeting is from the Happy Moments Stamp Set. Once stamped I used two oval punches, one scalloped, as shown. A piece of Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon and Basic Pearls finishes the card off.


Take a closer look at Betsy:






As I mentioned in an earlier post I’m internally doing major construction to my blog. I would love for you have your very own gallery page, but, in order to do that I need some photos of your work. Here’s the deal, you send me, attached in an email, any card, scrap-book page or project you have done using all of Stampin’ Up! products. I’ll feature it on a gallery page I’m designing just for your works of art!  Include your name and a title for the featured project. So, get on the band wagon, as they use to say!


Make it a great day!
