Another awesome Paper Girls swap.......

In June we swapped birthday cards for a child. Boy or girl, our choice. So I did half and half. My original thought was to use real Popsicle sticks but I thought it might look weird having them glued to the back of the card so I used a woodgrain background stamp Versamark ink. I like the results. The Popsicle SVG is from the Summer Treats collection at Lettering Delights. I added the faces and speech bubbles to their card base.

The boy cards....

Miriams Crafting Blog Challenge #2

Miriams challenge for this month is to make a something using buttons. I made this birthday card for an online friend and mailed it off to her with a custom tumbler I made as well. She really liked the card and I hope you do too!

You can learn how to submit your own project here: Miriams Crafting Blog Challenge #2

I know it's only got one button, but I thought it was too cute not to share. lol

I love vinyl!

I discovered vinyl's officially an obsession. lol I've done a couple home decor projects and more recently picked up some outdoor vinyl so I could do some graphics for my car but instead I've been having fun making custom tumblers instead. These are the ones I made so far.....the first two tumblers were end of the school year gifts for my sons bus drivers, the last one was a birthday gift for a friend. Then I made a coffee mug for my friend Linda who is a HUGE fan of the Time Bandit of Deadliest Catch fame. I made a custom jar for my cousins awesome homemade bbq sauce, now I need to make HIM one.

*Looks around the house to see what I can vinyl up next! lol*
