I wanted to do a Diaper Cake and little Thank You Favors for the guest. I put inside some nice tea and chocolate. YUM...
Here are photos of my FIRST Diaper Cake I made. Her room will be Butterflies and the colors are "Green Galore, Temp. Tur. Purple, and some kind of Blue.
I choose different color ribbons and Purple poppies and White and Pink Roses at the top. The pictures don't do the cake justice, really. It's 3 tiers and flowers, booties, bibs, onesies, and toys all around and diapers for use.. This is my Centerpiece for the Food Table.
And We're having a door-prize also, but I didn't have any of those tickets so I made my own. Just used DSP and printed on them the same info. from the front of the favors and ten Numbered the back.
I'm a little over-whelmed but if I wasn't I'm not doing it right :) Yes, I have my CHECK LISTS!!! I'm scared I'll forget something..
So all the little stuff is done. Now,,,Tomorrow will be the FOOD day.
And then SATURDAY is our Big event. March 12, 2011.
Thanks for staying with me. And I hope you can share in our excitement. Baby Girl is Due April 14th....Can't wait.
After all this I will get back to making cards. But for now my craft room is a mess!!!
Have a marvelous Day.......Joyce

Today while driving I saw a Valentine Flag with Red and Purple hearts all over it. I scaled it down a little and this is what I came up with. I was thinking that would look good with Rich Razzleberry and Real Red.
Do you find every time you go out and about you see something and say to yourself "Oooou, that will make a nice card! And then start to imagine the colors and stamps your going to use when you get home, I do it alot. I just find it funny :)
So here are the materials I used for my Card Today:
SU Folders: Tulip and Square Lattice
SU Bigz Die: Topnote
Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry
Stamps: Be My Valentine
Accessories: Pearls, Rich Razzleberry Ribbon, Dimensionals, Vintage Brads (I love these)
I stamped on the topnote cutout and then ran that thru the BigShot. Then stamped and cut-out the Real Red heart and popped on top. Added some ribbon and brad.
Hope you like it. Not bad for looking at a Valentine Flag...
And I hope it inspires you like the flag inspired me today....See ya soon!!! Joyce

I used here:
CS: Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red (don't you just love this color, I hope they keep this one forever).
Stamps: Punch Potpourri & Holiday Best
Accessories: Sizzix Folder and Note die.
-Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon cut at an angle

-Some sponging on the folder as I ran thru the BigShot machine. The just ran under the water to wash off.

I've always wanted to make a "Scallop" card. I made this one into a Giftcard Holder inside. One of the Girls from our "Friday Night Hostess Club" is expecting in Feb. So tonight I will see her and we will give her this card.
Here are the materials I used:
-Large Scallop Circle Sizzix Die
-Coluzzel for center circle
-SU Swiss dot Folder
-CS: Certainly Celery and White
-Stamps: So many Scallops and Baby is from (Retired set) Baby Firsts
For the Scallop Circle for Card you take your 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 CS and fold in half and then place on Die about 3 or 4 scallops from the top of the die-leave it folded and run thru your BigShot. Easy Peezy.
Hope you can use the idea!!
Thanks for stopping by. I have a "Valentine's Day Card" to upload also I made for class. Have a Warm Evening and let me know what you think??
I HAVE GREAT NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My Su Demostrator offered me a STARTER kit to become a SU DEMOSTRATOR, WOO-HOOO. I JUMPED ON IT. SO SOON I WILL BE A BON-A-FIDE STAMPIN' UP DEMO.....WISH ME LUCK..

I don't have a card set-up for these yet. I'm thinking of maybe using these on some Christmas Tags... Just wanted to show how versatile this punch is. If you remember I did a "Pointsetta" card with this punch that was just awesome. And I used the 5point flower punch also from SU to make my little pointsetta there.
Yesterday -I also cleaned all my craft scrissors!!! Have to cut with clean scrissors. So I just use odorless Mineral Spirits and cotton ball and then wipe off the sticky stuff and dry with wet paper towel. Hope you keep your scissors clean also. Helps give clean cuts.....Geez, can you tell I'm a little bored and brain-locked.
So thanks for stopping by and I hope you make some birds also. And when you do upload them and let me see which ones are your favorite. Have a marvelous day-Joyce
