Ever hear that song by Veggie Tales in Madame Blueberry??? Alexa LOVES Veggie Tales-always has.

When I saw my title made me think of that song! LOL! I LOVE it. Its called Im SO Blue. About a blueberry who has everything but always wants MORE! Im sure at times we can all relate to that!

Anyone know how to link songs to click “play” here? Its really a cute song.

So Im in a blue mood these days-

Seems to be a color I pull out alot as of late. Maybe cause its soothing? I need soothing.

I dont know! But what I do know is these are a few ideas all with soothing schemes of blue.

I hope you get inspired somehow! Im not in a chatty mood-tired and stressed. “I” want to stamp but my body say’s “NO! Not today” I dont want to agree, but if the mojo needs to rest, then you gotta let it.

I feel like I have ALOT on my plate. I get SLAMMED this time of year with TO DO’s that I put alot of pressure on my self to be Miss Martha Stewart for! WHY? I dont know. Maybe cause my mom always did? Its an inherited thing like her OCD, and cleaning obsessions.

Amber’s birthday was August-Alexas was end of September, Jason’s 30th was 2 days after in which I trying to pull his plans together for. We are doing a last minute (hopeful) gathering THIS weekend.

Noahs b-day is Nov 13th, and lets not forget Halloween projects, and Christmas. AND a baby shower for a close friend-which I have a cool idea for-just need to implement it!

I cant even think that far ahead-I need to go ONE day at a time. I am stoked I got Noahs birthday invites done! Now I need to just get them out. His party is planned and taken care of. Will post that on Friday!

Got the kids Christmas photos done and am so stressed about our family card! Im leaning towards no stamping but think of the HORROR!!! See theres that self pressure.

UGH!! OK who really came hear to see that? I dont know, but I feel better already!

So for now-I promised to share a super cool idea-new to me 😀

flocked flower bag Flocked Flowers

I have to say I LOVE this bag! It is the tin tie bag from Paper Trey Ink. I always chop off the tie part! LOL!

1)I ran some cardstock through my Xyron machine (adhesive).

2) I then punched the 2 flower shapes with my Martha Stewart flower punch.

3) Removed my backing, and put into my Fun Flock.

4) Brayer-ed over it to smoosh it in permanently.

CHEAP Velvet Flowers in any size punch you own! That can be shaped to pull forward or whatever.

Now for the stems I used this super cool tape (from Scor-Pal) directly on the bag-then added my flock.

You know I LOVE my butterflies, and so I had to add this one from Card Greetings II.

NOTE: BTW Little Monsters set is on SALE! Till Halloween 😀

Here is a quick card I did for the sale-click for larger view. Its pretty cute. Details HERE


Here is a sample I made with the MFT set Meet me at the Cafe. Sentiment was Fancy Flexible Phrases by SU!

wedding window Bridal Boutique

I kept thinking about those windows you go by, and there is a wedding display with cakes, and gifts, and wines. Like a boutique. So I set me window scene. Not too overdone-simple.

I had gotten this pale baby blue toile type of printed paper at a LSS (more scrap), and found it to be perfect!

It has a hint of shimmer, so I used shimmery white cardstock.

I kept thinking blues for something old, something new……….you get the idea. A nice bridal shower card I think.

Then onto a bag of treasures

bag of treasures

This was a quick idea-cutting down a lunch bag.

I used Ooh La La by Lizzie Anne Designs for the Eiffle Tower. I loved the whimsical style it has. Its stamp[ed on shimmer white-punched with SU! Scallop circle-which is so pretty!

This is clean and simple. Great for a need to whip a gift package together in 3 minutes! LITERALLY!! LOL!

The layer of patterned paper is actually a card (from Target $1 spot!!) cut in half-so its like a small card mounted to the front of the bag, so you can put your message right there. I get my white lunch bags from Walmart! Wicked cheap too.

I could have dressed it up, but was playing with the idea. I liked it simple.

OK Im off. Tomorrow Ill be posting a card using Alexa‘s set!
