Pizza Boxes

Splitcoast Stampers had a tutorial on making a mini pizza box. These were so fun and easy to make. Again, I used retired paper. I have to get rid of that stuff! I know we have a new catalog and new colors and paper, but I have to use up some of the old to make room for the new. Actually, the truth is, the summer has been busy with kids for me and I haven't gotten to do a lot of stamping. I actually moved my craft room out of one room (which became Zaden's) and into another. So, my supplies were in piles and boxes for awhile. It is coming together and that is great. I even had a stamping event in the new "Rubber Room". It is a combo toy and craft room. I'll have to get some pictures once I get a few more details taken care of. I also have some cards to post that are new and I promise to get them out to you. :)

Talk to you soon,

A little Thank You

These post it note holders are sure easy to make. I used an acrylic 5 x 7 frame and cut designer paper to fit. I created a decorative strip for the bottom and added a ribbon. I gave these as gifts to the girls in my stamp club. They seemed to like them.

After some time has gone by though I realized that these standing up the tall way is not such a good design. The sticky note pad falls off - not the back page I stuck down but it seperates from itself. So, the next batch needs to lie down, not stand up. It will just get better and better!

Talk to you soon,

All in Our Family

Isn't this a cool piece of art? It was a birthday gift from Jenn. She stamped our family with the "All in the Family" set, then she masked us and then finally printed our name. So cool huh? She rocks. I'd like to say I taught her all she knows but I haven't. :)

Our family life is crazy this summer. I have spent weeks now, 10 exactly, doing nothing but caring for Zaden and Zoe. Mostly Zaden. These infants now days sure are needy. (hee hee) But I have sure loved it. He is starting to smile and grin more and more and the coos are more frequent too. Zoe is adjusting to him and learning to be gentle. The kids and I will be heading to Colorado this week to visit my family there. I'm not sure I'm prepared to travel with the two of them. But, I'm sure it will be fine. Thank goodness we have a direct flight!

Talk to you soon,
Amy
