Welcome, baby Elias

Happy Sunday -
Waiting for my sister to drop off the littles to spend the day with me! Can't wait to see them. It's been a week of rain and baseball games are being delayed so I haven't seen them all week.

I want to share another baby boy waterfall folio mini album I made for baby Elias who was born about 2 weeks ago. Mom works for the same company I do, but in another department.
I used the Graphic 45 Precious Memories paper, & chipboard embellies.

                                               Stick pins from my stash

Inside pocket....
                                          Tags and photo mats.....

That is it from me. The boys are here and we are off to have a funday Sunday!
Enjoy your week~

Memorial Day Weekend

Happy Friday! Wow, I never post on a Friday but I have been on vacation all week and have lots to share with you! But first of all, I wanted to wish you all a blessed Memorial Day on Monday. Let Memorial Day be a day to count our blessings and remember those who serve to protect our country and our freedom.

I have a few cards using the Stampin Up Butterfly Basics stamp set along with their Butterfly Thinlits die set.
Some of the cards you see on this post have been CASED. (Copy and Share Everything). A few are my own design. Please know that if I have copied an idea that was orginally yours I do thank you for your original creation and the fact that you shared it on the web. Hopefully you will consider it a compliment.

Everything used on this card is from Stampin Up - cardstock, ink and pattern paper. Twine is from my stash.

 Same with this card, everything used is from Stampin Up except the vellum layered over the blue cardstock used to die cut the butterfly.

The cardstock, ink, dotted embossing folder and ribbon are all from Stampin Up. The white pearls are from Queen & Co. The sentiment is from Crafty Secrets.

The next group of cards are from the Stampin Up Painted Petals stamp set.

 Card stock and ink are all Stampin Up products. The ribbon is from my stash. I don't remember which online company I ordered this from as I have 3 different suppliers that I use.

 Again, cardstock and ink from Stampin Up. Ribbon and button are from my stash.

 Cardstock and ink from Stampin Up. Love this sentiment which is included in the set.

 Another amazing sentiment that comes with this set!

 This card uses both the Butterfly Basics stamp set and the Painted Petals stamp set. Pearls and twine are from Michaels Craft Store.

 ...more from Painted Petals. Flower from Michaels.

And last of all....the butterfly on this card was stamped and punched out using Stampin Up Papillon Potpourri stamp set and Elegant Butterfly punch. Blue and white pearls from Queen and Co. The Honeycomb embossing folder is from Stampin Up also.

That is it from me. I am off to run some errands. Keep your fingers crossed that we all have some decent weather this holiday weekend!
God bless you all~

Happy Mother's Day

I'm popping in to wish all you ladies a wonderful Mother's Day today. I hope the weather is cooperating with your plans for the day! It's on the cool side here in Chicago land with a slow, soft drizzle off and on.

Here are a few cards I made using the Stampin Up Lotus Blossom stamp set. I absolutely love this set!

The die cut butterfly is stamped and cut out using Stampin Up's Papillon Potpourri stamp set and their Elegant Butterfly punch.

The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Thoughts and Prayers stamp set.

This card was made using Stampin Up's Butterfly Thinlits and Butterfly Basics stamp set. The pattern paper is also from Stampin Up's Designer Series Best Year Ever.
One more card and that will be it - I promise! I learned a new technique using masking tape and ink pads! I should have bought a wider width of tape but this one didn't turn out too bad.

Again, I used Stampin Up's Butterfly Basic stamp set on this card too. That is it from me!
My daughter and I are going to spend some time together getting a mani-pedi! Fun times!
Happy Mothers Day
