Knit Happens

This week's design team theme @La-La Land Crafts is... PETS!  I've used the 3 li'l kittens from the Knit Happens clear stamp set along with the Yarn Basket Die and the needles from the Knit and Crochet Die set.  It may be hard to see, but the peach floral thing is the ottoman from the Comfy Chair die ☺  


I can't leave without sharing photos of our own pets!   Currently we only have one dog, however we had 2 cats for 16 and 18 years - they were brother and sister that we got when they were small kittens.  I miss them so much!  The girl was named Squirrel, because she would sit up on her hind legs and eat like a squirrel!  And the boy was a big fluffy boy we named Raja - after Jasmin's tiger in Aladdin. We've also had a couple other dogs, 2 bunnies and a couple of hamsters (the kids had those!) 

This is Ginger, a puppy we adopted from the vet hospital when she was just a small puppy.  She loved playing in the snow with the kids.  We had her for 13 years.  She passed away in 2017. ♥  

Here is our Pom-chi we rescued from the Oregon Humane Society in Portland, OR. around 5 yrs of age and we enjoyed her for 7 years.  She passed away in late 2019.  Still breaks my heart to not have her with us anymore - miss her so much ♥

And here is our current (and only) dog - a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix.  She was a street dog we rescued from Guadalajara in 2020.  Super sweet and loyal.  She loves cuddles and can't get enough petting.  And she deserves all the love we can give as she had a really rough start in life.  ♥

Happy Inking!

Multi-Tiered Pop Up Penguins

 Welcome friends!  I had a great time last night on a Zoom call with my SU! upline and 8 others in her downline group - so fun to "meet" them and put faces to names and craft together - for 3 hours!  :)  We all worked on our own projects and they were so diverse, love it!   For my zoom project, I created a multi-tiered pop up box card --- no surprise there, right guys?!  BUT, this one was on a much larger scale and needs a 6 1/8" square envelope, which I had to make myself, but with the help of my nifty envelope punch board , it was pretty easy... PRETTY being the operative word as I used some the same Whimsy & Wonder dsp from SU! as I used on my card!   I will include the measurements for making this card below my photos, so keep scrolling :)  The Whimsy & Wonder dsp has holographic striped paper that I used on the sides of my box.   These cute penguins and matching punch are bundled in the new Holiday Catalog, July - Dec. 2021, and so is the Whimsy & Wond

Multi-Layered Cube Card

Ok y'all, those who know me know I love a card challenge - especially fancy folds!  So when I saw this gorgeous card of Lavonne Schwendeman's I had to try it.  And as impressive as this style of card is, I prolly won't make another of these for a long while as it took me quite a long time to make.  But it was worth it for my daughter who's birthday is in a couple of weeks!  Maybe I'll make a (fall/winter) one for my other daughter who's birthday is next May, LOL!     I love how the sentiment and larger butterflies actually POP OUT away from the card base!   Here's a view from the top-ish.... The "Lovely Wishes" foam words are pink foiled on the front and are shiney when the light hits.  They are attached to clear window sheets that are then glued to the cardstock in front of them.   The flourishes were pretty flimsy, so I cut out 3 of each and glued together to make them more sturdy. Each size of butterfly is embossed with a different texture - th

Tutorial - Box Cards W/O Dies

 Hello again!  I'm back with 2 more box cards using some brand new stamps and dies from the upcoming SU! Holiday mini catalog & SAB and a tutorial on how you can make these without using special dies! First I'll show you a card that uses special dies that make it super quick & easy to create the basic box base to showcase all your fun images, and then I will show you how you can make a very similar card without using the dies.  This is a fun new stamp set featured in the upcoming SU! Holiday Mini Catalog called "Penguin Place" - I bought the bundle, so it has a punch that goes with it to punch out the sitting/standing penguin outline, the white inner piece, and the feet.  I had to fussy cut the trees, gifts, hats & scarves and the sliding penguin.  This is one set I wish they had made a die set to match for all those smaller pieces.   The Box base is created with dies by  My Favorite Things  called " Outside the Box Level Up Die-namics ".  My

Tutorial - Origami 4-Drawer Easel Card

 Happy Sunday crafty friends!  I was asked for instructions after posting pictures of this box card on a FB group, so here it is!   While I am not the original creator of the 4-drawer easel card that were all the rage 10 years ago, I thought of a way to create the drawers from designer paper ,  when others were creating it using cardstock.  Some had dies that cut the drawers and others were clever enough to come up with the correct measurements to cut and score and tape, but I couldn't wait to find what I was looking for so I just made a simple origami fold box for the drawers and wha-la!  It worked ... and is prettier than plain cardstock IMO.  :)   So I'm here to share it with y'all again, this time using Stampin' Up!'s Ornate Garden Suite (stamps, dies and paper!)   Supplies Needed: - (4) 6-inch pieces of designer series paper - (2) 4 ¾” coordinating designer paper (or can use same   as 6” pcs.) - (3) 8 ½ x 11” sheets of cardstock – can be same or different color
