Mother's Day Place Cards

Here are some place cards I have been working on for Mother's Day.  I will have a house full of company so I always like to do something special for those occasions.  My table will be decorated with lots of pink to honor the Moms as well as our granddaughter on her baptismal day.  These were made with Memory Box stamps and dies that were made especially for Simple Pleasures last year for their anniversary celebration.  I have stamped and cut 2 of each hummingbird for added dimension which you can not really see in the picture.  The centers of the flowers are also stamped and cut out twice.  The placecards are by Sizzix and the nametag is a Spellbinders die.  I added a few pearls to the medallion in the center.
And now I'm on to my next project...baptismal announcements!  Happy crafting!

The most adorable little girl...

My local stamp store posted these adorable little girl stamps on their FB page a few days ago and I knew I needed to get to the store to get my little hands on them.  And it is just a good thing I went today because they are selling like hotcakes!  They are big stamps of the most adorable little girls.  The stamps are by Julie Nutting.  I think it is a new company.  She also has the tags in a pad to go with the girls so I couldn't pass those up either!  I have stamped the girl image on cardstock and cut it out.  Then I have stamped the image on a few DP's and cut them out so it is like paper dolls!  I added some embellishments from my stash.  How cute is that!
So I really need to get back on track and work on some baptismal announcements for Mother's Day!  Fun fun!  We'll see what I can come up with!  Happy crafting!

Happy Mom,s Day

Time seems to be flying by me...way too fast!!!  I think I only have Mom's Day cards and one birthday card this month...so maybe there is hope!  Here is one that I have done!  The papers and center floral diecut are by Melissa Frances.  They actually came in a kit by Becca Feeken.  She always provided lots of extra papers so I am using them.  These are especially beautiful papers too!  The dies used here are designed by Becca for Spellbinders.  The stamp is currently hiding from me so can't give you the manufacturer!  Need to do some serious cleaning around here!  Not sure when it will happen but hopefully soon!
We may be doing my sweet granddaughter's baptism in 2 weeks (when I have a house full) so I am trying to get my daughter's christening gown cleaned and repaired so Aubree can wear it.  I made it for Brittany 26 years ago so the elastic in the sleeves has pretty much died.  I think it will be so special for her to wear it and then maybe I can make another one for the next child that comes along. 
Hope you have a great week of crafting!  I hope to get in a few more projects too!!!  We'll see how that goes!

Diecut Barettes!

Yes, I'm still around!!!  I know it's been over a month since I last posted!  I just have not had time to work in my craft room much lately.  Lots of other things going on around here and a new grandbaby to play with!  But, here is a fun project I worked on last month.  These are all dies by Papertrey Ink.  I just cut everything out of felt and added a few stitches here and there.  The card that they are attached to are also by Papertrey Ink.  I stamped them with PI stamps and also SU stamps.  It will probably be awhile before Aubree will get to wear these but my time seems to be so limited lately so I need to do things when I can!  I have a houseful of company coming for most of May so I won't be around then either!  Have a fun day!
