Movers & Shapers Bags for PPA35...

Last week's challenge at Pals Paper Arts was "Anything but a card"... I don't take the time to create much besides cards so I felt like this was a "little" out of my comfort zone! I was trying to come up with something to make and suddenly had a brainstorm... why not make a little fabric bag with the Movers & Shapers die?! I decided to try it out... can't say that it turned out as cute as what I thought it would, but I'll post them anyway! The girly one is for my niece for her birthday... she loves making cards. The two cello bags full of embellies (a bunch of different Stampin' Up punches) will be stuffed into her bag. The star one is just to have on hand... it will probably eventually be filled with pencils or candy or something and given to one of my boys' friends for a birthday gift. The star one is my personal favorite... maybe because I'm used to all things boy! :) What do you think?
Heart bag: Movers & Shapers die (114506), Punch Windows die (115953), 5/8" Red Satin ribbon (117286 - Occasions Mini), fabric scraps from my stash!

Guest Stamper at Stampin' Pretty...

A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate enough to be the guest stamper on Mary Fish's Stampin' Pretty blog. This is the card that I made for the occasion...
I ran a square of old olive cardstock through my big shot with the little leaves die (114511)... then popped up the "negative" with dimensionals.
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Ribbon: Old Olive grosgrain (111368)
Other: Little Leaves Die (114511), Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware Ribbon Slide (112454), Polka Dots Impression Folder (117335- Occasions Mini Catalog), Scor-pal


Have you ever played at PPA? Go here to check it out.
Margaret Moody's sketch for this week was perfect for the birthday card I needed to make for my Dad...
For the grass under the deer, I inked just the grass on the tree stamp... I used my trusty Stamp-a-majig to line it up just right!

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow, To The Nines DSP (114038)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Nature Silhouettes (111542), Well Scripted (118601 - Occasions Mini Catalog)
Other: Modern Label punch (116630), Punch Windows Movers & Shapers die (115593), brown brads

Chicken Alfredo... Yum!

You really need to try this recipe... it's delicious! I created the recipe card in My Digital Studio (MDS). Someday I'd like to make a recipe book with all of my favorite recipes... someday...
