Butterfly Pansies

This is a video from a Stampin' Up consultant, Dawn Olchefske. She makes the cutest pansies from the SU Butterfly punch (that is no longer available), so if you have the punch already, then you're all set!.... If not, the 2 pieces could be cut by hand.

Either way, the "reinker spread" technique is great!

Dome Cards

In the following video tutorial, Christina shows how to make beautiful and fancy Dome Cards using Spellbinders Oval Dies. 

Watch on YouTube: HERE

Now while she repurposed a plastic cover from a chocolate egg, thus rescuing it from ending up in a landfill, you can get these domes in craft stores as well. And I've even seen them at Flower Soft US (United States) online.... here. ... Or Flower Soft UK (United Kingdom) online.... here.

Herringbone Patterned Background

Beate from SCS has made a video to show how to make a herringbone design on background paper. I'll have to remember to run the base cardstock through the Xyron. Looks like the easiest way to do the adhesive!

... a GREAT way to use up scraps!

Another Granddaughter Update!

Well I haven't posted any pictures of the grandbaby since she was 2 months old.... and she's 8 months old today! I can't believe how time seems to be flying by.

This first one was her first professional sitting at 6 months old, back in February. I get the impression she's going to be a "thinker"!

Here she is toward the end of last month.... such a cutie! I just want to reach out and give her lots of kisses on those adorable chubby cheeks!

The photo speaks for itself as far as when it was taken... 
our precious bunny!

And finally, the most recent.... taken just a few days ago with her mommy....

Our girls!

And on one final note for today.... I thought I had already posted this, 
but looking back, I can't find it.... we found out almost a month ago now, that we'll be grandparents again!!! 
Our son and his wife are expecting their first in mid-October!
Won't know for awhile yet whether it's a boy or girl,
but either way we are excited for them!

Thanks for letting me share!


I like the following quote I found on my daughter's Facebook page:

The next two are on a much lighter note. I found the first one on my son's Facebook page, which really made me laugh, because I remember all the times I had to ask him over and over to get something done, when he was a teenager and on into his early twenties. He's older and wiser now, married.... with their first child on the way! 

I can't remember where I found this last one, 
but I liked it because our daughter is a lefty!

National Scrapbooking Month of May

Close To My Heart (CTMH) will be offering this exclusive paper pack during May. It's called Dream Pop.

The B&T (patterned) papers are just bursting with sweet summer flavors!

And the cardstock sheets have glossy patterns on one side that coordinate with the B&T patterns above, for a "pop" of shine! 

Can't wait for May to get here!
