Fun flower magnets!


Quick and easy favors or gifts.  I love making magnets using my SU supplies.  The new Fun Flower Die for the Big Shot is perfect for such a project.  I also love the words in the new "You're a Gem" stamp set.  They are great for my magnets.  In addition, I used the crown from "Artistic Etchings" since it goes so well with the "Queen for a day" stamp from "You're a Gem".  I ran the layers of my flowers thru the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper Texturizing Folder.  Our new crown trinkets also add just the right amount of bling, especially when you add some our adhesive rhinestones to them.


My color combo was Basic Gray, Old Olive, Baja Breeze. 
I also used the friends word and tag shape from "Tiny Tags" stamp set.

Framed Art


So, I have been trying to come up with easy, inexpensive ways to decorate the house that I am renting for me and the girls.  I picked us some cute frames at the M store recently using some coupons and played with my Stampin' Up! punches and DSP and came up with these ideas.  I like the butterfly under glass theme so I used my butterfly punch and some retired DSP to try it out.  While it doesn't really go with my colors in my house, it did come out nice and gave me more ideas.  So of course, I took it to Vintage Market to sell!


I love this frame!  I used our Large Heart Punch as well as our Scalloped Heart Embosslit and showcased the Love Letter Designer Series Paper.  This project was cool because one sheet of the DSP is actually a grid pattern which made is super easy to line up my hearts.  I loved the flourish on the lower right hand corner of the grid pattern.  It just added that extra design touch.  These colors are perfect for my kitchen but not my living room, so I took this frame to Vintage Market as well.
