Laurie made me do it

My friend Laurie shared a link with me to a card on Pinterest using the Blossom Punch.
I had to CASE it.
Wonder if the ladies in my group wold like to make this one....

22 March 2013

Oh Mia!

Boy, she is far from helpful!!

I was prepping a project for a Club Gathering and had to go into the other room for a moment.
I came back to find Mia "prepping her spot for a nap!"

Her she is right after literally pushing one stack on the floor

Then she grabbed my fingers when I tried to pick some of the pieces up off the table.

She really didn't like it when I moved her to pick up the pieces from under her. Little monster! LOL

Using up some of the In Colors heading out this year...
Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder
I used Twitterpated DSP and the Bird Builder Punch to make the Tulips 
Petals A Plenty TIEF
Scallop from Adorning Accents Edglits
Bitty Banner Framelits
and One In A Million Stamp Set

You mean so much to so many people (outside)
One of them is me (inside)

20 March 2013


My friend Kelly told me to go check out her blog post last week. So I did..humm show what's on my desk (table).

This is the photo I tried to post last Wednesday... 
Some projects have moved off to make room for the next.
Notice Mia? She doesn't care what's on the table or in her way.
See the plastic container under her..it was switched foe tote in the next photo.

WOW! This is embarrassing to see a picture of this.

A close up of the main pile.... ugh I shouldn't had taken this one!!!
Honest I am not a slob, that's not a pop can just laying there. 
It's all rinsed and cut to be run through the Big Shot.
I found the coolest project on Pinterest for the SU Flower Folds Die and a pop can made into a tea light holder (forgot before cutting it, I do not have the die, I just received cuts as a wish)

This plastic tote (which started out as a small 8 1/2 x 11 case) was s'posed to be a temporary holding zone for all the cuts, images and Impression samples that I have been receiving.
 Oh, it's taking me so long to put together samples to show my ladies.

As soon as I moved it from the edge Mia took post

Ahh my scraps basket.. it has gotten thinner since I started this endeavor of making samples of everything Big Shot. 
Please tell me I am not alone in the stock pile of scraps.

Behind Wilbur.... that's where all of my card stock belongs, including the scraps basket. 
On the right is the shelf of inks and stamps.


 Here are 3 of the cards I have done with the samples (and scraps)  The piece in the bag on the right is going to be a sample swatch of the In Colors. Just waiting on my Card Stock order to arrive. Oh yeah, more stuff to put on my table.

Looking over the photo of all the clutter, figuring out what's in it...well I noticed my notebook. I made this back in 2007 from a File Folder. It has a 5x7 note pad in it, it just hangs out next to the computer. I usually write down measurements from tutorials I watch. Not sure if you can tell, but I also used it as a sponging pad! heee heee

Just got these 3 sets yesterday... I'm dying to create something! The dilemma is to put them away until I think of something or keep them out til I do.

Love this drawer unit..it fits so nicely under the table. All of my adhesives, scissors, rulers, all of it..right there! I even bought of the drawer organizers  for each drawer. Love this thing!

This is for my ex MIL Judy her b'day is this week.
It's in the first photo, but I took this photo over by a window.
 Only way things get off my table, photo ops! hee hee

I found a blog of Punch Art using SU punches....he is so darned cute I had to try it.
 (I forgot to give him lips!)

Honeycomb TIEF, Blossom Punch and a Treat Cup for my little MJ's Easter card
Also made one for my sample projects.

Another from the samples tote. Little Leaves Sizzlit, Fun Flowers Die and Flower Garden TIEF,
Oh I really like how this turned out, I might need to buy this Die for myself.

Blossom Party, Tasteful Trim and Fancy Favor 

Delicate Designs, Beautiful Butterflies Sizzlit, Just Believe, Organza Ribbon and Bakers Twine

Silver Glimmer Card Stock and Tag Punch 
(isn't this a cute one)

Elegant Lines TIEF  used as a card front for....

I used aluminum foil for the mirror. 

Tea Shoppe with Delft Technique 

Tommy is over 30# and he seriously moves things out of way. 

I had to clean up a bit..mostly off the floor. 
I came back in the room to find Tommy found a spot (or made a spot)

Mia seems all tired out by all my cleaning.
Oh, see the pages there on the right..I am hoping to paint my ceiling in here come July (when DD visits) and finding color ideas. So not interested in Blah White.

To explain that water bottle, and what is so fascinating to have the cats all looking up...I got  a pair of parakeets for my b'day last week. The water bottle, reminds them I am watching when they get  too focused.  Since my table is covered with so much paper I am happy they don't make me spray it! 
Spook doesn't seem to care at all.
