A Birthday Basket

A Birthday Basket

I needed a birthday gift.  But it had to be a stampin’ birthday gift cause it was for a stampin’ friend…


And I had just received my new Spring Occasions Catalog worth of stuff so, I thought I’d play around…

Here’s the card:


The words for this card are from the Celebrate Today stamp set.  I love layering them one on top of each other…


Sorry, but I cut the flowers.  They’re from the Best Day Ever Salebration Stamp Set (which is FREE with a $50 purchase).  And, do you notice the little heart??  It fits PERFECT in the scallop border punch.


For the gift, I just got a gift card, which is a universal delight.  But, to jazz it up a bit, I made a gift card envelope with the gift card framelit (which is still available, btw).  And, I wanted to present it in something special… so I put together the berry basket.  IT IS SUPER CUTE.  LOVE THE BASKET (and stay tuned, there will be more baskets in the future).  The DSP used here is also the SAB Best Year Ever DSP…



So, there… The birthday Basket.

You know you want one…  🙂

Valentine’s is coming. And if you are like me, it’s one of those holidays that just kind of sneaks up on you (confession: they all sneak up on me). But I’m trying to do my due diligence and send out fair warning. VALENTINE’S IS TOMORROW. Ladies. Feel free to forward this to your husbands as well. Valentine’s. Day. Tomorrow.

Anyway, I enjoy this holiday cause it’s not as stressful as Christmas. And its a fun holiday cause chocolate is generally the food of choice when celebrating it. Which is fine by me.

So, in prepararion, Isaac needed some treats for his classmates. And so we made some.


Okay. Lots.


Isaac was my sprinkle-putter-on-er.  Yes. That is the official title.  These are those wafer cookies, strawberry flavored, of course. Dipped in almond bark. And heart sprinkled. And when I ran out of cookies, we switched to grahams. Both of which are delicious when covered in sugar and then more sugar.

And here is what they look like all packaged up:



Its hard to see the candy. But they’re in a fry box and the tag is made with the super cute cheerful critters stamp set.  Blendabilities makes coloring this super easy…


And here are some more fast, easy valentines that you can get together before tomorrow:




Both are from the You Plus Me Stamp set.

If making them isn’t an option at this point, and you live on Maui… Then head over to Perfection Bra Fitting. In Wailuku… On Central.  See Terri.  She has some of my hand made valentines in her store. And all you will have to do is sign the insides. Super easy. And if you are interested in her services (her incredible brafitting services) let me know. I have a coupon for you to get $5 off your purchase (for first time customers). Fittings are free. And she is amazing.

So. Happy Valentine’s Day to you.

Raining Love


Happy February to you!!  Here is the latest installment of the easel calendar!



I know pink and hearts are a little cliche for Valentine’s but I couldn’t resist.  I love this little rain cloud.  It’s so sweet…

I used a hostess stamp set from the 2014-14 Idea Book and Catalog called Hello Love.  It’s a fun little set.  Has lots of various images to do different things.  Spoiler Alert:  You will see this set again in the calendar series…  🙂
