Added Items to my Etsy Shop

A quick post today to highlight some new items added to my Etsy shop.
I made up some of these embellishments with October Afternoon paper, Kraft card stock, buttons, and string. The edges are sponged for an "antique" look......
Below are some tags I made up for those crafters who like to put their own "signature" on their items when they sell them or set up for craft shows.
These are already for you to add your initials or name and then tie to your creations!!

These were all die cut from quality Kraft card stock and stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
The stamps are from the new kit from
{Stamps} of Life - stamped4you
The tags here measure approximately 1 1/2" x 2 3/4" and come with the string attached!


Here is another set of tags from the same stamp set......

and a close up below............

Thanks for stopping by today!

{ippity} Monday Post

You don't get much simpler than this card.....
The flower is from the small {ippity} kit
{This kit is still available from me for $5.95}
I stamped the image onto some October Afternoon paper and added a little glitter to the flower petals.
The sentiment is from the new Mint Motif set by Kimberly Crawford - available at
i Heart Papers
I thought the simplicity of the card, paper, and sentiment font went really well together here.
Happy Monday and thanks for looking!!

Monday & some Hip Hoppin'

Very, very quick post today............still trying to catch up from being away at a conference this past week........
This is a quick, simple card using the {ippity} kit
Faith Blooms
It is one of the smaller kits available through me for only $5.95.
There are four stamps - two flowers and the sentiments seen here.
This picture below is the inside of the card....
All the stamping was done on PTI white card stock and I used my SU! markers for the coloring on the flower. This allowed me to use multiple colors on the flower and color the stem separately.
Happy Monday!!

FWF............with {ippity} and a side of Unity

Lots going on right now, so this post will be quick.......
Here is a cute little thank you card put together using the Labels 1 Nestabilities.
This is the largest of them and makes a card 4x4.
I simply scored one of them at 1/4" and added adhesive to make the card base.
That cute little bug is from the new {ippity} release
A Little Buggy
The sentiment is from {ippity} kit
The Simple Things
(Both kits available through me ----> HERE
and...
the background ledger stamp is from last months
Stampin' Store Kit by Unity.
That's it............added a couple of Kaiser pearls to the bug, sponged the edges and offset it all with some October Afternoon paper.
Have a great weekend!!

Monday with {ippity}

Today I have a few dressd up manila tags to share with you.
I used that wonderful October Afternoon paper that was part of this last {ippity} release on all three of these.
BTW - I have this paper for sale here on my blog - I sell it in 6x6 sheets if you are interested.
On the center tage, the word Happiness on the paper stood out to me, so I coated it in crystal effects to make it pop a little.
The kits used on these tags include:
The Simple Things
A Little Buggy
Fall For You
All are available to purchase at a very reasonable price ---->HERE !!

TGIF......where did the week go???

It is that time of year, and I thought I would do a couple of these up for my son's teachers.
I'm still not sure what I'll be adding inside these cute little "tool" caddie.....
guess I better get on it since school is almost out!
Maybe I'll find something nice while I am shopping at Mall of America the week after next.....heading there for a conference!
The cute little apple is from Unity's Hodge Podge of Happiness kit.
The template for the tool caddy is from My Time Made Easy -- HERE
It is the Trendy Tool Tote......
I love it, and it is super easy to make!!
See the close up of the paper?????
It is also from My Time Made Easy....
It is a digital paper called School Ruled -- HERE.
I printed mine off on some vanilla cardstock and sponged the edges just a little.

Below is a second Trendy Tool Tote I put together using Unity's Stampin' Store Kit for May.
The flowers in this kit are gorgeous, love them too!!

Not sure what I'll be putting in this one either.
Candles possibly??? These are very roomy little "packages" and
very versatile.
