annie-goodday-smAnnie made this cute little card – a nice “just because”, don’t you think.

Pitter dog’s tail wags as he eyes the little inchworm Annie drew. I think her choice of muted colors is very nice and the polka dot ribbon adds just the right finishing touch.

Meg created this too cute card! She said that it’s taken up permanent residence on her desk because a paper piece Callie (dog) makes any day brighter. I agree!

Here’s what Meg did:

  1. I printed out the quote using Love Ya Like a Sister font onto Echo Park “A Walk in the Park” paper and cut it out.
  2. I adhered-some directly to the card, some with popdots, and “is not” with multiple layers of popdots.
  3. I stamped Miss Callie twice onto the same yellow patterned paper, cutting out her body from one and her head from the other, then more popdots!
  4. I added some sewing around the edge because why not? (which she says is her new stamping room motto)

Well Linda has been BUSY AS EVER! Apparently she got really got carrot’ed away and just couldn’t help herself. :) I’m so glad she did. These little jellybean jars are just the cutest! And the carrots – just adorable!

She credits Mel Stampz and Clare’s Craftroom for giving her the inspiration (and instructions!) to make these yummy low-cal carrots.

meg-smellcarrots-detailMeg is at it again with another Easter card. This one is so cheerful with it’s Springtime color palette of pink, green and a lovely yellow. I just love all the textures each of the papers have and the little pink paw pad on Curious Cottontail is so cute.

To make one of your own, Meg wrote down the following instructions:

  1. I crumpled a piece of white cardstock until it was soft enough to peel apart, then stamped Curious Cottontail Bunny 3 times.
  2. I added some grey shading and pink pads.
  3. I cut out her entire body, then cut out just her bunny butt from the second image, and just her feet and cottontail from the third image, then layered them with popdots.

The sentiment is from The Cat’s Pajamas, and the paper is all retired Stampin’ Up patterned paper.

meg-happyeaster-smMeg made the cutest little Easter card! She used the Flopsy bunny stamp and I’m sure there’s a wonderful surprise inside that colorful egg! :) I suppose Flopsy (and Kaitlyn) will just have to wait until Easter to find out.

Meg used papers and stickers from the Echo Park Little Girl collection. And here’s what she did:

  1. I cut out the banner using PaperTrey Ink’s banner die, and attached with Tim Holtz’s tiny attacher.
  2. I stamped Flopsy Bunny’s Got an Egg twice onto white paper and once onto the striped patterned paper.
  3. I added some light grey Copic shading to Flopsy and cut out.
  4. I added the egg with a popdot, and cut out his hands from the second stamped image to adhere to the egg

jinah-candles1Another oh so sweet project by Jinah. She took little tea light candles and used the toy stamps to decorate them.

She said she first stamped the images onto tissue paper and then colored them in using her Copic markers. She then cut them out and put them on the candles and used a heat tool to melt the candle a tiny bit.



jinah-candles4Aren’t these the cutest! I don’t know if I could bring myself to actual light them!

meg-noodles-smMeg sent in this card and I love what she did with the sentiment – crossing out “days” and then “weeks” and adding in “months”. Sometimes it certainly feels that way!

Here’s what Meg did:
1. Kitty Noodles was stamped in brown, then heat-embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then I used Wild Honey Distress Ink and an aqua painter to paint him, and carefully cut him out (hint: put some clear packing tape on the back before cutting out those thin little whiskers).
2. I printed the sentiment on my computer, doing a couple test drafts and using my stamp-a-ma-jig to check the placement of the Journal Blotch Circle before printing on the kraft paper and stamping the blotch.
3. I distress the edges of all the paper, and attached everything with my sewing machine and tim holtz’s tiny attacher.

wanda-forthebraveWanda sent in this great card featuring the kids of Maple Lane. As if it wasn’t festive enough with the red, white and blue color scheme – she threw in those great yellow stars with button centers. I also love the paper punch she chose, it makes it look like a decorated bandstand to me.wanda-forthebrave-detail2
