We met yesterday for our monthly RubberFUNatics downline meeting. One of the highlights is of course, swapping! I look forward to seeing all of the creative ideas that everyone comes up with. It really brings out their personal style and creativity!
This adorable project - Leprechaun "Poop" was created by Rachel (my daughter as well as my downline :o). Is this little owl not the cutest little leprechaun you've ever seen?
I will post more of the projects in the comng days, so be sure to check back!

I have the March Framed Art to share with you today! "Welcome Spring" is the theme and I thought the Sizzix Elegant Bird (125593 $21.95) is just perfect for this. I incorporated the Fresh Vintage stamp set (w125115 - c125117) and the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (126154) from the Sale-A-Bration brochure - they all work so well together, don't you think? If you click the photo, you can enlarge it to see the detail in the background. I added the image from the Fresh Vintage in Versamark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder for a subtle but elegant look to the background.
I have a few customers who prefer to do scrapbook pages instead of the Framed Art. I simply took the basic layout from the framed art and used it on (2) 12"x 12" pieces of Baja Breeze cardstock. So versatile and easy to accomodate all papercrafters!

It's FRIDAY! And a snowy one at that! Actually, it looks like a Christmas card outside - it is so beautiful!
Today's Fast & Fabulous card is an easy one to duplicate. It features the Doily Triple Layer punch (122465 $23.95) and the Delicate Doily Stamp set (w125590 $21.95 - c125592 $16.95).
Normally when you punch, you stamp your image first. It is so much easier to line up your image where you want it. However, in this case, it is difficult to line up your image with the doily punch because you can't see where your image is from the backside. So, I simply punched the piece out first and carefully laid it on top of the stamp:
Easy peasy! Punch (4) pieces and stamp in the following colors: Wysteria Wonder, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron and Baja Breeze. I adhered them to the card using dimensionals. The sesntiment is from the Delightful Dozen stamp set (w122650 $32.95 - c122652 $24.95) and stamped in Basic Gray. A rhinestone tops each one for a little "bling"!

I have fallen in LOVE again! Shhh... don't tell my husband...That seems to happen every time a new catalog comes out - lol! The Tea Shoppe stamp set (W125545 $24.95 - C125547 $27.95) from the Occasions Mini Catalog is to blame this time. I am featuring this stamp set in my Tea for Two class this coming Monday, February 27th @ 7pm. We will be creating these projects - 2 cards & 2 tea bag holders - for $15. Also included is a package of the Twitterpated Designer buttons (125579) a $6.95 value!
Contact me to reserve your space. Kits are available and include all of the consumables (NO STAMPING) & instructions to create the projects.

Easter falls earlier this year, so I am getting a head-start on my projects. Today's project I created as a "thank-you" for my customer orders this month.
I began with the large oval from the Sizzix Ovlas die (114525 $15.95) on Very Vanilla cardstock.. I stamped the bunny image from the Everybunny stamp set (w122705 $27.95 - c122707 $19.95) in Early Espresso ink. I colored the image using the Watercolor Pencils (101879 $19.95). I finished it off with a few little flowers & pearls as well as a little sparkle with the Dazzling Details (124117 $2.50).
This can be used as a tag for an Easter Basket, added to the front of a card, or for any other Easter papercrafting project!

I found this simple idea while browsing Pinterest not too long ago. What a fun idea for a child's Valentine treat! Best of all, you can make this is UNDER 5 MINUTES!!
1. Begin with a strip of Whisper White cardstock measuring 1 1/2" x 6".
2. Along the bottom of the strip, punch the Pinking Hearts border (117649 $15.95).
3. Fold the strip in half and stamp the Valentine sentiment from the Delightful Dozen stamp set (w122650 $32.95 - c122652 $24.95) in Real Red ink.
4. Tie a piece of 1/8" real Red Taffeta ribbon along the fold.
5. Lay 3 Pixie Stix along the fold and glue the flag closed.
6. Snip a "v" along the right side.
7. Punch a small heart (117193 $5.95) from the Red Glimmer paper (121790 $4.95) and adhere it to the pennant.

This month's card kit of the month features the Button Buddies stamp set (w122735 $29.95 - c122737 $21.95) I love this set not only because it is versatile & has something for every occasion, but because it has a spot for buttons on each image - and who doesn't LOVE buttons???
The basic layout of the card is the same for all of them making it real quick & easy to recreate the cards. The kit contains all of the supplies (NO stamping) to create one of each design - a total of 8 cards for only $10!

I came across these mini acrylic appetizer plates (3"x 3") at the party store during the holidays. Honestly, how much can one fit on a tiny plate of this size? Not a whole lot, so I decided to repurpose them. I embellished them with everything Valentine thinking they would be fun on a tiny plate stand or with a magnet on the backside for hanging.... This was my 3d swap from Leadership...
