Happy Valentine's Day!

I love this PTI stamp set, so I decided to use it to make this year's valentines.  I don't like to mass produce the same design multiple times, so I made variations on a theme and this is one of my favorites.

Supplies:  Paper Trey Ink Stitched with Love, Stampin' Up Happiest Birthday Wishes and Teeny Tiny Wishes, There She Goes Penguin Love stamp sets, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler & Soft Suede cardstock and inks,  ribbon and baker's twine, Adorning Accents edgelits, Paper Studio Doodle Hearts embossing folder, paper piercer, dimentsionals & circle dies, silver embossing powder and Versamark.

Time for cake?

I got out of my comfort zone, used some less traditional colors and added some paint splatter to these otherwise traditional clocks for a friend's birthday.  Too bad she lives in Kansas, so I won't be able to share any cake with her. 

Supplies:  Papertrey Ink Hands of Time, Stampin Up Afterthoughts and Gorgeous Grunge, Whisper Whtie, Rose Red and Peach Parfait card stock and inks, grosgrain ribbon, Nestabilities circle dies.

Going in Circles

Sometimes I feel like I'm going in circles, especially when it comes to keeping the house clean.  It seems like the other "residents" here are out to make my life difficult, continually adding to my workload!  Yesterday afternoon I found (fresh) peanut butter on the stairs as well as on the wall leading up the stairs,  -What?????  The kids and I were at work and school during the day, so there's only one likely culprit who simply doesn't seem to recall how it could have happened . . .

I saw an idea for a card similar to this in PaperCrafts' Stamp It Techniques Volume 2.  It required me to pull out my Stamp-a-majig in order to line all those circles up, but I think it was worth the trouble for this crisp, clean look.

Supplies:  SU Soft Suede and Sage Shadow ink & cardstock, Spellbinders circle dies, Studio G alphabet set, Quickutz Geometric Circles embossing folder.
