Pocket Calendars

Pocket Calendars

I wanted a little Happy New Year gifty for my stamp club members… so on one of my excursions to target, I happened upon these in the Target Dollar Spot:


Super cute little calendars with a clear plastic cover.  I used to decorate these a million years ago… and with the digital influx, they seem to have not been as prevalent as they once were…

So, I loaded up.  And decided I needed to do something nice, but it had to be fast.  Cause, I don’t have these brilliant flashes of crafting genius when I actually have time to make anything.  It’s always last minute…

So, I thought watercolor and Flowering Field (a Sale-a-Bration set).  You can whip up a gigaton of these in a jiffy!!


They are perfect!! the aqua painter makes this go so fast.  Use some favorite colors and you have an instant gift.


I love simple field flowers…


I was just at the dollar spot yesterday… they have more…  Hurry.  Before I go back and buy the rest…


A Valentine Treat





Hello!!  I have a quick little treat bag to share with you today.  I must say, this latest catalog and subsequent releases from SU have really incorporated packaging and gifting into their line-up.  And I LOVE IT.  And, you will too.

These are the Sweetheart Treat Bags (#134610). These treat bags come 12 in a set…Bags, large striped tag, and twine.  AND… the best part is… IT’S ONLY 4.95!!  For 12!!



I added the two little banners from the Banner Blast stamp set (it’s an SAB set, and won’t be available until tomorrow) and punched them out with the coordinating punch (again, SAB item and not available till tomorrow–with qualifying purchase.)



Here it is with some of silver tissue that I folded and used the ‘grass scissors’ from the Spring Occasions catalog to cut the little fringe on the top…



And, of course, what is a Valentine’s treat bag without a TREAT??

These bags are only available until MIDNIGHT MOUNTAIN TIME today.  This means order by 8:00 tonight Hawaii Time to be safe…  You can order through my online store if you so desire.  And, they also have cute kiddie valentines and other valentine cards if you need something quick and easy…

It’s not too early to start on Valentines… It’s only a couple weeks away…



Best of SAB


Hello!!  And welcome to the FINAL installment of the Best Of Tour!!  I think they saved the best for last.  BEST OF SALE-A-Bration!!  Sale-A-Bration is my favorite time of the SU year cause there is lots of FREE stuff floating around.  And who doesn’t love FREE??

Here are a couple of cards created with said free items and the Best of SAB set…


This first card uses the little flower in the Best of Set.  And what I like about this is that an actual SAB set has a larger version of this same flower.  Imagine the possibilities.  And, here, I used the SAB DSP and some of the gorgeous Crisp Canteloup twine that comes with one of the SAB kits.  Super simple and easy, this card is perfect to put a smile on someone’s face.  And, since there are no words, it can be used for any occasion!!

This next card was my first attempt at the file folder card.  So, I could try to explain how to make them, but if you google it, you will see easy peasy videos to make it happen…  And, it is SO easy.  But, you need the awesome envelope punch board.  WAY easy…


And, there is more of the super awesome DSP.  I just love this year’s offering.  And, the scallop punch on the card had the words ‘for you’ on it, and after I inked it up, I wiped those words off.  I used a stamp from Fabulous Phrases for the ‘HI’, and the ‘wish big’ from  “A Dozen Thoughts” set (a set I LOVE, btw).

And this is the inside….


Another view:


And, oh, this is the same as the first card…but instead of making the background Sahara Sand, I used Basic Black.  I needed to make some for a swap and didn’t have enough Sahara Sand.  Which do you like better??


So, you are off to see what Deb Lehigh has for you!!  Hope you enjoy the tour!!
