See NO Evil, Hear NO Evil, Speak NO Evil

I love using my punches, here's another card made
from the Stampin' Up Owl Punch.  

Crappy Day

This is just a fun card.  I cased it from the Unity Blog, because it was just so easy,
and it makes a statement at the same time. 

Circle Border

This card is made from DCW Mat Stack - Retro Prints.
The Stamp is from Unity, and you can't see in the picture
but the little flowers are all glittery.  And I've fallen in love
with Twine, I bought this at All That Scraps.

Rolling Along

Another of my January Birthday cards, the paper for this
one is from Prima Marketing, The Breathe Paper Collection,
something I picked up at Big Lots.  And again the stamp
is from Unity.

Lamp Birthday Card

This was the sketch at My Favorite Stamps for this
week, and I thought I would give it a try, this is what
I came up with.  The Lamp stamps are from Unity. And the
Patterned papers are from Making Memories.

Picture Frame

This was a prize for my Niece's Baby Shower, it is made with the Stampin' Up set, Fabulous Florets.  I think there will be more of these in the future.


My second card for 2012, I have a few birthday's in January that I need to make cards for.  The paper is from Kaiser Craft - Devonshire Collection, the stamps are from Unity, the rose stamp is called - Tattered Roses.

Christmas Tree Card

This is the other Christmas Card I made for 2011.  The tree is from the Stampin' Up set - Patterned Pines, and the words are from Unity new favorite company.

Christmas Cards

I didn't make alot of Christmas Cards this year, I went to my box of cards that I had been making at Stamp Camps for the past few years and pulled out all the Christmas cards, just didn't have time to make all the cards I needed.  This set of stamps is from Stampin' Up and it's called Big On Christmas.

Football Birthday Card

This card was for my Grandson's 13th birthday, and I did it in his uniform colors.  The stamp is from The Angel Company.

Robot Birthday Card

This card was for my Grandson's 3rd birthday, this one took me awhile to get the proportions right.  But I think it turned out cute.

Baby Shower Cards

These are the Baby Shower Cards that I made for my Niece.  I made a total of 91 of them!

Elephant Birthday Card

This is the card I made for my daughter's 17th birthday.  She is always saying she wants a puppy sized elephant, so here it is.  He is punch art with various punches.


At Christmas time, Big Lots was selling these candles for .25 cents a piece, I bought a bunch to use as gifts, I decorated them and actually used them for prizes at my niece's baby shower.

M & M Holders

These are small Matchbox cards cut to fit the snack size
M & M's, only plain work, peanut are just to bulky.
The face is made from various punches.

Pretty in Pink

This was a challenge on a blog...didn't turn out that
great.  The stamps are from the Stampin' up set
Fox and Friends.

These are the pages that I came up with for the Girl's to make for their calendars.

Spring Basket

This was a fun little basket.  It's made from a 8x8" square of paper,
scored at 2" and 4" on both sides.  The handle is made from 3 12"x3/4"
strips that I braided and they are attached on the sides by
brads.  The flowers on the front are from Stampin' Up set "All Natural".

Snowman Candy Bar Wrappers

These are the mini Kit Kat bars, wrapped with white cardstock,
the hats are a small square punch with the corners rounded, the
brim of the hat is from the Word Window punch, cut down to
match the hat.  The rest are various size punched circles.

It's been awhile

It's been awhile since I updated my blog, so much going on, and not enough time to get everything done.  Christmas was here and gone in a flash, I almost have my livingroom back to normal.

On December 26th we welcomed Brady James Jacobsen to the family, he is my niece's first baby and he decided he wanted to be here a bit early, his due date was February 6th and arrived weighing 3 pounds 12 ounces and was 17" long.  He is in the NICU in a neighboring hospital, he is doing well, as of January 7th, he weighed just a bit over 4 pounds.  We look forward to finally getting to meet him sometime in February.

It's a beautiful sunny warm day here in Wisconsin....winter hasn't found us yet.   It's 44 degrees today, I even opened a few windows to air out the house.

Hopefully this year will bring more crafting to me, last year I had a hard time finding my mojo.

Happy New Year to all!
