Another Day In Paradise-My Scrap Chick









This is one of my favorite cards from My Scrap Chick! Bright-Cheerful and flexible enough with 4 different sentiments that you can change it up and make it over and over again!

I made this card for a couple guys-so I limited the pink somewhat :)!If you look below-I will show you a little trick I have used for several years-makes it easy for placing small letters etc.  I believe the idea came from Jennifer McGuire.







Cut out your letters...I always add a box around letters-a habit I picked up from cutting vinyl.
Put a piece of Glad Wrap over your letters and burnish really well.

Pull up your letters...they will not stick like vinyl so I give each letter a little nudge with my paper piercer. They will stay stuck to the wrap but because they have a fair amount of suction to the mat -they need a little help. A little nudge to dislodge is all it takes.

 Here is what it looks like when pulled from the mat.
                                                            
I lay it down and add some Zig 2 way squeeze and roll glue.
Here you go...all glued up and ready to go!
Gently place over your prepared piece, arrange as needed and then stick down.  You can still nudge the letters a little if needed. Wait just a minute for the glue to stick and then take off the wrap.  MUCH easier than placing each individual letter.  In the file, the letters are set perfectly for cutting and placing on the panel. 



Love the sun in the background...wishing I had my toes in the sand right now!

And of course they fold flat to easily fit in an envelope!

Happy Easter!!




Hope you all had a Happy Easter.  I had a nice dinner with family and am now ready to sit back and rest for a while.  I made several projects over the last few weeks that I just could not find the time to share, so today I am sharing them with you.  


Rice Krispie Easter Cake...the inspiration came from HERE.
This was so fast and easy to make!!!


The Easter Bunny sent me this picture because I forgot to take a picture before popping them in the mail.  Go Ducks!


Another Dollar Tree basket for a a good little friend of mine. The bunnie is from a file named Sweet Bunny Easter Set-from the Silhouette Store, but I can not find the link right now.

Thanks for stopping in...sorry time is short for me these days but I did want to at least share-even if it is the last minute :)

My Scrap Chick Bunny Lollipop holder









Are you seeing spots??? I think you all  know how I love polka dot paper! It just makes me happy!  

I bought these pastel tootsie pops and matched them to my polka dot stash! I used a cut file from My Scrap Chick named Bunny Lollipop Holder. Easy enough to make in bulk quickly!! 

 Darned if the tootsie pops of my youth have gotten so much smaller-sheesh! I did resize the file to fit my suckers. I resized the bunny to 6.334 x 1.862 and that size fit the suckers nicely(don't forget the little pieces like the nose, ears and eyes too-resize them all at once). I chalked the white ears with a little pink chalk and tied them up with Offray 1/8 inch white ribbon. (Tip: chalk your ears while still stuck on your cutting mat-very fast!) Polka dot paper is either SU!, Bazzil or Bo Bunny.  


There is something satisfying about lining up all your little projects and taking a picture.


 Love how greeny is photo bombing in this pic!

My Scrap Chick-Just Saying Thanks












Just saying thanks to those that are oh so nice. 
I needed several thank you notes for co-workers and because I work at a plant that processes cherries-it just goes without saying...



I used  a cut file from My Scrap Chick named Cherry Circle Tag Scalloped and a stamped sentiment from Simon Says Tilted Banner Sayings. I added a little doodling with a white pen for a quick finishing touch. I made these large enough to slip in to a 5 inch square envelope-so it's a pretty good size to write your message inside.

Penny Black Sweet Talk. April Spring or Easter Challenge














April Challenge

Spring or Easter





I am a little late with my Penny Black creation today...I can't believe I did not even know it was April 1st today! I have lost all track of time...

For my card today I pulled out an oldie but goodie stamp named Sweet Talk (1442J) --a sweet Penny Black vintage stamp. I have colored it with copics and added it to a lovely lattice backdrop designed by My Scrap Chick. The file is named Lattice and Doily Square Card and and comes with a  center square or center circle version. I actually made one with both backdrops versions but due to short term memory lapse, I forgot to take a dang picture of the other one. I did add a Lawn Fawn stitched square to the lattice doily as well as a little LF grass too. I added a very much loved SU! Easter greeting.

You can also find a smaller version of this stamp in the clear set Garden Friends

House Mouse Spring Challenge











The NEW HMFMC #237 is
hosted by mousey teamie Karin and the theme is:


**SPRING**






Who doesn't love a nice sunny spring day? Oh my, they can't be that far away!

Today I am using a sweet stamp named Blowing Bubbles--keeping it simple by cutting it out with a lawn fawn stitched rectangle die, sunny lawn fawn paper and finishing it off with a pretty SU! ribbon. Wow, it has been a long time since I have tied a bow in ribbon...it is so pretty! The sentiment is from a Simon Says Tilted Saying Banner clear set.
