Love the Magnolia Stamps

Tuesday, December 27, 2011


Had a really great Christmas this year. My daughter Stefanie and her family were home for Christmas this year from Texas.  We always have Christmas eve with Jeff's side of the family at Nicole's house and Christmas at my house.  It was such a good year.  I got some really nice gifts from my family, a big shot from my hubby and a michaels gift card from Chad and Rhonda, a cato gift card from Nicole and Jon and kids, a bathrobe, pjs, and a shirt from Stefanie and Rene and kids, and a bath set from Michelle and Brian and kids plus a lunch date on her. Hope everyone had as nice of holiday as I did.

Thank you card

I made this card using SU plain papers.  The butterflies were cut from a scrap piece of paper..  The stamps are SU.  The floweres are Prima and Recollections(sprayd with coral reef glimmer mist).  It looks pink in the picture but it isn't.

Altered tin

I altered a small lunch box tin using patterened paper from paper pizazz.  I used flowered on top and on bottom I used the stripe.  I added pearl spray from Hobby Lobby and the flowers and butterfly were from Michaels.  This is for my grandaughter Briann's room.

Altered Paint Can

This is the paint can I altered for my grandaughter Carlie..I used paper from Paper Studios, flowers from Petaloo flora doodles.  The ribbon is from my stash..I used a pearl swirl from Say it With Crystals.  I thought it turned out rather cute.  Her room is the same color green as in the paper.

Altered Paint Can

I out did myelf on this one.  I am so pleased with the way this turned out.  Both my grandaughters loved this can and want one like it.  I started with  plain paint can from Home Depot.  I covered it with two sided paper from Chatterbox.  I added a wide light aqua ribbon from JoAnns Fabrics and a bow.  I then added the pearl swirl from Hobby Lobby and flowers from Prima.  I sprayed the flowes with glimmer mist to get the turq. color and then sprayed them with pearl glimmer mist.  I added a turq. rhinestone brad to the center of the flowers..  The lid I did with the sdame paper and flowers and added pearl rope around the inside of the lid.

winter blahhs

It has been awhile since I have posted.  I guess you could say I have had the winter blahs.  I don't like getting out in the cold that much, it chills me to the bone. Any way just wanted to let people know I'm still alive and well.  Looking forward to spring and summer.
