Miscellaneous Projects And A Card

I have a confession. Its nothing new to those that follow my blog. But in case you didn't pick up on it, I always forget to note the details of my card such as what stamp, cartridge, or size of paper on the card. I am so sorry! Many stamps that I have are garage sale items etc. So I have no idea who the manufacturer is. But I will do my best to note them when I am able. I don't use fancy solid paper. So you'll just have to go with my blue, green, red, or whatever description at this time. Maybe in a decade when I use up what I already have, I'll get the really good stuff with names like lucious cherry blossom etc. LOL! And as far as the card sizes go, I really had no idea anyone would want to know or reproduce what I make. I am terrible about measuring. Often I just wing it. Which probably shows. HOWEVER its been brought to my attention that it is driving some of you bonkers. Therefore I am going to really really REALLY try to give some deets in the future. And here is what I came up with as a solution to my problem:

Isn't that neat? I used a removable dry erase board surface that I picked up at the dollar tree. So if someone needs to borrow my table I can quickly peel it off. But it will be there to note all my sizes and stuff I am working with. Cool eh?

The other thing thats miscellaneous but I thought I'd share is a sign that I made in a hurry for my mom. Since its vinyled I thought you might be interested. If not, just skip on down. Really simple sign using Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. Cuts are at 2" and 1" respectively. Nothing fancy on the sign. Didn't want to detract from the message I was trying to send. My mom has alot of company and often they just let the gate stay wide open and we've had some pretty close calls with the busy street that we live by. So we hope this will get their attention.

Then lastly is the card that I promised. Its a super simple card that I sent out to a few people as thank you's for their gifts and/or noting how good it was to see them over the holidays. I used Christmas Cheer Cartridge for the tree located on page 10. Cut at 3". Martha Stewart glitter for the swirls. Background paper is from Recollections. The naughty or nice package. Love that one. So many great designs on there. Here is the card:


  1. Oh it is a good thing I started taking the baby asbrin the other day... Lol What a good idea to use the dy eraser... You are so clever.. And I love the sign - yes our furry babies are irreplaceable.. You have been very busy, I love how you put the sentiment on the star... Well my friend I am at DISNEYLAND but wanted to check up on you... You did good with the sizes... And who would want to reproduce your beautiful creations... Hugs

  2. Happy New Year!!!

    Oh, the suffering you've caused!!!

  3. Ducky! I'm glad I'm not the only one that forgets to take notes on products, stamps, etc. I'm lucky to be making a card..LOL! Your projects are wonderful. Love the vinyl sign ;)
