SAF group

We missed getting Jess Witty in this pic. Had such a fun time w/these ladies @ Kristin's house -- great food & lots of die & patterned paper swapping! I got cool washi tape as a door prize & I even made 2 cards amidst the visiting.
Let's not wait a year to get together again.

Birthday card

I wanted to make a card for a special friend's b-day & wanted to use my new Nesties. Here is the result & I must say I am very happy w/it!

PTI Princess Challenge -- Washi Tape

I have been buying washi tape like crazy & I'm sure that some of you have as well! Let's make a card using some of it.
If you don't have any, & don't wish to make some using tissue paper, just use strips of patterned paper with a torn edge to mimic the washi tape.

I die cut the butterfly from paper I'd attached the washi tape on. I also applied the banner of washi to some cardstock to give it some body.

Thanks for playing along. Can't wait to see what y'all come up with!

Supplies: MME & Target washi tape, HL pearls, Cuttlebug folder, PTI stamp

Well, what I planned to make today happily lined up w/the challenge for the PTI Anniversary -- make something w/hearts!
I wanted to give out some little Valentines to church friends & so I came up w/these little wraps for the Ghirardelli chocolate squares. The pile of 15 looks so fun! And... I'm so pleased w/myself for actually DOING the something thoughtful that popped into my mind.
Thanks for taking a look!

Dang! this was going to be for PTI 5th anniversary!

Pardon the sideways picture - that is the least of my mistakes this afternoon!
I was going to make this card (CASE-ing Erin Lincoln's card) for the PTI 5th Anniversary & then send it (actually them, as I made 2 the same) to Operation Write Home.
BUT....I didn't use ANY PTI product! I thought I was being so slick using this self-stick paper to cut out the alphabet instead of deciding how I would do the adhesive on PTI cardstock.
Well, I think it's kind of cute & I believe that some deployed hero will be blessed anyway!
Thanks for coming by!

supplies: Sizzlets alphabet, versafine ink, Hero Arts stamp, copic, Colorbok adhesive paper, red scrap

In honor of their 5th Anniversary, Papertrey has given us a download of some free digital images. You can find them on Nichole's blog HERE

I didn't have the exact Copics to match my paper, so I went for harmonizing. Thanks for taking a gander.

Quatrefoil thank you

This is a (late) thank-you to my in-laws for the PTI GC they gave me for Christmas. Cut me a bit of slack since I didn't use it 'til January 15th & I have not yet played with (nor rec'd) the goodies that it bought.
I finally used the PTI Quatrefoil cover plate. I used the metal shim in my Big Shot & it cut beautifully. I like the way that the free Thank You stamp came out, too.

Supplies: PTI ink, cardstock, PP, ribbon, Quatrefoil die, stamp; Nesties label
