Oh Im so sorry I’ve been absent! I have alot of deadlines to get done.

I know alot of you are excited to see some of the photos from my meeting with Debbi and Paulette (StampinCPA, plwwolfe). I have to get some more photos on the disc then Ill edit and post all about it!

For those of you who DON’T know there are a group of friends on SCS called Alexa’s Pretend Stamping Friends (aka PSF’s).

I met these people over the course of the last 1 1/2 years. They are some of my closest friends who ahve taken the journey through Alexa’s chemo and the up’s & downs of life. Its become an amazing, supportive, and loving group of women. We can say whatever we feel. This group of people have really helped me through the toughest times of my life, and done some of the most AMAZING things you could ever imagine. I cherish each one of them.

Recently the ALL got together and made an ENTIRE HUGE scrapbook to document Alexa’s Make-A-Wish! It was quite amazing. Each page is such a cherished, loved work of art. Ok Im rambling here, and this need to ahve its own “TOPIC” so I will save it for then.

So since I am swamped, and haven’t been online much, or updated here much-I figured I’d share a trio of baby cards with you. Seems like alot of my friends are getting pregnant, so I need to keep some of these on hand! LOL! Alot of people ask what is the reason for no heads! Well its kind of Kim’s signature design. It makes her line unique, and stand out from the crowd. I think its kinda cool-

I always spot her sets a mile away. Being on her team I can tell you that she has some jaw dropping sets coming out!

And I heard about some of the stamps in an upcoming Christmas set-DROOL BUCKET please!

I have MANY samples with her yet to gbe released sets, and hope to share with you when I get the OK! I wouldn’t want to “enable” you to want something you can’t get yet (wink,wink)

Here are 3 samples all done with the same set She’s Having a Baby.

I love this image. I had to cut out the background, and layer over patterned paper (DCWV spring stack). I was just thinking the colors, and patterns were very soft and sweet. I used my hobby blade to cut around the woman. My bestest used tool-Cuttlebugbaby folder was used for the bkgd. I just colored in with SU! markers. I used Sprite Prima’s because 1)they are my favorite 2) they matched the row of flowers on the patterned paper! 3) They also took the place of the ones drawn on the frame 4) I felt they added a nice balance.

The buckle is a new punch by EK success. I got that at Target.

Sweet Baby Girl

I decided to use the small images in the set, primarily cause people always say they never know HOW to use them, and make them the FOCUS of the card. So, the next two do just that.

The paper is by Prima the Baby Girl collection. I get those goods from Jacksonbelle’s ebay store.

That was the starting point of this card-with paper like that stamping is EASY peasy.

I knew I wanted a hanging tag, but was clueless as to HOW I would hang it. When I got SS magazine I saw a similar thing done using a photo turn-VIOLA! I knew I could use the general idea for my hanging bear tag. The ribbon is by Bo Bunny. The pink paper is Prism Razzleberry light.

I bought these acrylic letters at Jo Ann’s like a year ago! I wanted something on the side-without taking the focus away from the bear tag. Since they are clear-I felt it was a perfect touch. Balance is very important to a card or project!

Baby Blocks


Now this is the third design. I made it because there is a baby block stamp in the set-thats what made the light go on! Again, used the small images of the set as my design focus. Kept it clean and simple. Used my markers to color each letter a different color-I love dong that. The buttons are Brads by Making Memories. I thought this was pretty cute.

Well I hope that tides you over till later. I hope to stamp things I can post sometime today.

Thanks for checking in with me!

Stay tuned cause I will be posting more blog candy in a few days…..you never know when!
