PPA100! Can you believe that there has been 100 challenges? Thanks to the PPA for making it possible!

My favorite technique is punching! Punching paper that is! I love to use punches to create fun and fabulous cards. I went a little crazy with the flower punch and layered them on paper using the Scallop Border punch. Happy Birthday is stamped with Stampin' Up's All Holidays set which will be retiring. Rose Red and Pixie Pink paper were used along with Rose Red Ink.

I enjoy looking at all the fun cards and visiting the blogs and have even made a few new Stampin' friends! Thanks again ladies for making the 100th PPA Challenge possible!

Jackie has been rocking out the cards for our upcoming booth at the Mishawaka Summerfest! This card was created with a guitar stamp purchased at a local Scrapbook Store called Pages in Time Forever. Whisper White and Basic Black card stock is used and the stars are cut with the Big Shot from some silver scrapbooking paper. The letters were also cut with the Big Shot.
It's fun to rock with the PPA!

PPA97- What's my style? Whimsical and fun! I do a lot of custom invites and these were one of my favorites to create! It's fun to play with paper and embellishments and then use digital resources and when you "marry" them - you'll get the best of both worlds!

Father's Day Card

Happy Father's Day to all those wonderful dads! This card is cute and easy to make.

I started with some royal blue paper purchased at Archivers. The Sahara Sand or creme color paper was embossed with the Square Lattice Folder. Chocolate Chip paper was then cut in a rectangle and layered on some striped paper that I previously purchased for scrapbooking. The collar is also from the same paper and cut in a rectangle then folded and brads were used to make it look like a button down collar! The tie was easy too- I just cut that myself without a pattern. Happy Father's Day is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.

Stampin' Up Items Used:
Paper: Sahara Sand #121043, Chocolate Chip 102128
Square Lattice Embossing Folder#119976
Metallic Brads#119741
Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set#115370

Happy Stampin' and Click on "Order Online" to the right and get started!

Jackie's Birthday Gift

I just love to wrap gifts and think of creative & fun ways to embellish a package! I dressed up this Jackie's birthday present in Houndstooth Wrapping Paper. She loves the Paul Frank Monkey, Julius, and Julius Ribbon was 75% off at Target so I stocked up! I punched out some Real Red Paper circles and applied some sparkly letters and there you have it! I can't wait for her to open it! My baby will be 28 years old this year! Where did the time go? Happy Birthday Miss Jackie!
