July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop


(updated to include my art)

If you've come from Michelle's blog you are headed in the right direction.

Here is the stamp set itself:

Here is the card I created:  yes it is sideways.  It is upright in my file and will NOT load upright.  I am so sorry!  I miss my camera- everything runs smooth when I use that ;(
Products used:  For Always paper pack, White cardstock, Ruby cardstock, Ruby and Sweet leaf Alcohol marker sets, cocoa ink pad, blending pen, cocoa pigment ink square, burlap ribbon AND since I created this at convention I snuck in a little twine from the BRAND NEW Ruby mini medley.

Now check out Priscilla's artwork!!

Thank you for bearing with me this month as I deal with camera issues that made posting difficult!

orange you glad?


I wanted to share with you some fun, quick gifts I threw together for end of the year teacher gifts.
I found this idea on pinterest and LOVED it.

I went to the Dollar Tree and Target to stock up on "orange" items:  orange trident, orange summery plastic cups, orange carbonated drinks, orange cheese crackers...etc.  It was a total pinterest idea (I LOVE PINTEREST)  There is an online link here to the jpeg of the printable tags.  I just printed 5 on a page, cut them out and backed them on orange cardstock.

I thought this was super fun... and hope you do to!  If you had smaller gifts you could also buy the orange bags the Dollar Tree sells (woven handled bags 2/$1) they just didn't hold all of the items I purchased. 

Have a great day!
