New and cute...

As soon as I got my samples, I knew I had to play with them. These stamps are made with really good rubba. I can ink them up and the images stamp so
well. Especially for me since I tend to have a heavy hand and I'm always smearing my images.
If you've never tried Jean's Dandelion stamps before, you really need to try them.
I used the Sizzix XL shaker box die for this sample. It fit the image perfectly.
Here are a couple of pictures so you can see what the box looks like. It's
great for filling with little candies and makes a cute little gift for someone.
The blue card is actually a gift card holder that I saw on someone's blog and I can't remember who it was. I used the same words from the shaker box. That puppy stamp is so cute with the cupcake and he has a name but I forgot it.
The last picture is made from the Sizzix XL box die. It is actually big enough to fit a cupcake. One of our customer's (Michele) came up with the idea. She even dropped off the samples
with cupcakes in the boxes and gave me all the measurements. Thanks Michele! I used the little cupcake Sizzlet to decorate the box.
So glad that tomorrow is Thursday because the weekend is almost here. G'night!

One of my first dies...

Several years ago, I bought my very first die cut machine. It was the old red Sizzix machine, the one that you pulled down on the handle as you pushed the die through the machine. Anyways, as I was cleaning up today, I found this cute puppy die that I probably used only once. So I thought I would make something with it and used one of the new XL dies that the stores now carry.
Here's the deets:
Sizzix original puppy die, chipboard (puppy), Sizzix XL scallop bag die, Cuttlebug swiss dots emboss folder, Hero Arts round gemstones, SU scallop punch, Sizzix rub-on, and ribbon.
Well, tomorrow is Friday and the weekend is here. Have a great one!

Yesterday, I heard the ups man coming up the stairs with a delivery of samples for me, but I didn't expect to get a box of these new stamps. Of course I got a little excited since I was dying to see the new sizes of the clears. I can hardly wait to try them out.

I spent some time later this evening making some samples for the store. I slapped these together just so people can see the sizes of these new dies. The first box is called the shaker box. It's a good size to put little candies in. As you can see what the candies look like from the second picture. I don't know why this picture came out blurry but it must be my eyes. My LCD screen is quite big but I think I need a bigger one. LOL! The last picture is a sample of the horizontal card die and

matching envelope. It's smaller than the normal A2 size but it's mailable. I hope to finish with all the samples of these new dies by this weekend. Have a great weekend everyone and Happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there.

A busy Sizzix Saturday

This past Saturday was another busy day for me. I did a make-it take-it at Taj Clubhouse in Ward Warehouse. We used one of the new XL dies - the scallop box die. I decided to use the cute piggy die since it fit perfectly on the front of the box. The ladies had a great time and the 2 hours flew by real fast.
Then today, I had to make a sample using the new XL box #2 die. I wanted to keep it simple so I decided to go with the Sizzlets snail die.
I also used the Spellbinders long oval nestabilities dies that are a new size. Something that I've been waiting for. And believe it or not,
I don't have all the nesties.
We've been playing with the Wii everynight and having so much fun. I never thought that my hubs would even be interested in playing with me. Well, I better get cooking with dinner. Have a great night everyone!

Lion around

When I first cut this box out, I used parakeet green cardstock. I was going to make it into an alphabet block. I even cut the alphabets out of chipboard and a red apple to use for the letter A. But somehow, it just wasn't looking right to me. So I changed the box color and decided to make something else. I ended up using the lion die that has been sitting on my table for couple weeks now. I kind of like how it turned out.
Here's the deets:
Sizzix XL box die, Bigz lion die, DCWV cardstock for the lion, felt for the hair and tail, Bazzill for everything else, and Quikutz grass die.
Well, I'm heading to the shower, hope you're all having a great evening!
