New bird punch

This is a quick Thank-you card I made using the new punches in the mini. That bird punch is just so versatile, love it!

My Boys...

This is one of my favorite pictures of my beautiful boys together. I used the new Vintage Vogue clear-mount set for all of the stamped images, except for the "tiny tag", I can't believe how much I am actually using that punch. I did a 6x6 scrapbook page to hang in my magnetic frame. It could be put into any 6x6 frame and make a great piece for the wall as well.

Colors: Chocolate chip, Sahara Sand, Bashful Blue, and Very Vanilla

Acessories: Build-a-Brad, BB ribbon, button, vintage brad, dimensionals, linen thread, new edge punch

A bag for my bags....

Can you believe I don't already have one of these??? My bags are always just shoved underneath in my sink cupboard. I decided to use some of the fabric that I am hoarding and make a plastic bag holder. The black satin ribbon that I used for the "hanger" is the new ribbon from SU in the Spring mini...see even usin my ribbon stash ;)

I made this using the new Vintage Vogue clear mount set. I stamped the image twice and cut out the F and mounted it with dimensionals. The background was stamped in Versmark, and I finished with some bashful blue 1" ribbon, and a button tied with linen thread.

Bat Treats!!

I made the "thank-you's" for my son's Batman party with the Cast-a-Spell DSP (SU), and basic black cardstock that I layered using the tag punches. I then punched out the thank-you sentiment using the new Tiny Tag punch. I pierced through all 3 layers and used the black hemp twine to tie it to the chocolate bar.
I also couldn't resist adding a picture the cupcakes that Markus and I decorated for his party!
