many thanks

I recently picked up the Cosmo Cricket mini deck Togetherness. There are some fabulous papers in this collection. They look really nice with PTI's Hawaiian Shores ink.

This was another quick card. I will make this one again. The frame is Spellbinders Labels One. ~Rhonda

Christmas Light Tip: This light gun is the best thing for getting your lights to work. It doesn't look like much but it is fabulous. It didn't help my tree this year- too far gone, But it has in the past. I have seen these at Hobby Lobby and Walmart. Here is an on-line source for The Light Keeper Pro.


stamps: PTI - Take Three: Summer
paper: PTI Vintage Cream; Cosmo Cricket Togetherness
ink: PTI Hawaiian Shores
other: Spellbinders Labels One; PTI Lemon Tart ribbon

Triple Play

I'm playing along with Verve's Triple Play Project Parade. The challenge is to create a terrific trio of yumminess!  You can create three different things that all coordinate (like a bag, a card and a tag) or create three different cards or three different tags, etc. I chose to create 3 ATC scripture memory cards.

I used the Pyrus mini deck paper from BasisGrey. Added Verve Plain Jane stamps, dyed seam binding, die cut tags and TA DA! 

They will be perfect on a mirror or on the car dash. Much better than a 3x5 index card. LOVE THEM!!!!

Hope you are having a wonderful week!!! 

Here's a free tip for your Christmas decorating. Just cuz the LED lights say they are Warm White - half will be Cool White and then you figure this out after you have them on the tree!!!!! Check them at the store ladies!!!. :) ~Rhonda

Homemade Cookies

My Mother was baking cookies for a sale so I of course had to pull out PTI's Everyday Treats. The treat toppers really made the bags stand out on the sale table. They were ALL gone!!! 

Don't you love the embossing on the Pure Poppy? I couldn't decide if I liked the clear or white the best.

Mom used this recipe for Oatmeal Chocolate Walnut Cherry cookies. Absolutely fabulous. 

Enjoy your weekend! ~Rhonda

Gift Card Tag Bag

Thought you might enjoy seeing a picture of the booth from the Arts & Crafts show I participated in on Saturday. I had a blast talking to people and selling some goodies. That makes for some guilt free stamp shopping!!

Do you see the tag bags on the little tree?

I used small glassine bags that are the perfect size for gift cards.

Here is a close up of a couple of the tags. They are so cute!

I turned down the little top flap of the bag and punched a hole. Insert your gift card, fold over the top, and then attach the gift tag. These are perfect for the tree or a little something extra for a package. You could even put just a note if you don't want to put in a gift card or cash.

I hope you are having a great week! I can't believe that it is already Wednesday again. I ordered a ton of the glassine bags so I'd be happy to sell you some if you need them. ~Rhonda

Lady Bug

A friend had a new baby girl and the room is decorated with LADY BUGS!! PTI had the perfect set for creating this framed birth announcement. What do you think???

The sunshine impression plate added the right amount of texture to the background. A few RED rhinestones as the dotted i's added a little fun. The largest lady bug is popped up.

I had to make a matching gift bag/tag as well. I really like the black gingham ribbon.

I want to thank Steph from the PTI forum for letting me borrow this stamp set!! Hope you have a fabulous weekend! ~Rhonda

supplies used:
stamps: PTI Little Lady, Signature Greetings
paper: PTI Stampers Select White, Black, Bitty Dots
ink: SU Real Red, Memento Tuxedo Black
other: Frame and bag from Hobby Lobby, PTI Tag Sale One die, rhinestones - stash

Notebooks - Take 2

Just a few more notebooks! The perfect little gift for friends and family. I am using a large glassine bag folded in half for the packaging. I ordered a large amount from a supplier so I'd be happy to sell some if you need them.

I had several questions about my holiday gig! Depending on the home size, the team can be as small as four people or as large as 14 and we are at the same home for FOUR days!! Just a FEW Christmas trees there. As you can imagine, the Christmas tree toppers are fabulous and the decorations over the dining room tables!! OH MY!

Happy Stamping Everyone!! Rhonda


Just a quick post! I'm headed to my first day of my holiday job. I'm part of a team that sets up Christmas in client's homes. I did this last year and had a blast.

I love these little notebooks. I used PTI and Verve stamps. If you have a question about anything, just pop me an email. No time for supply list today. 

Packaging in the glassine bags certainly finishes them nicely.

Hope you have a wonderful week!! ~ Rhonda

Little Ladies

Yesterday I met 5 of my sweet "Z's" friends for a stamping party. "Z" helped to pick out the projects and the colors earlier last week. We created 3 projects that kept everyone's attention. The girls were so focused and did a great job. They used the Big Shot to cut out dies and the Crop A Dile to punch holes. Girls of all ages like to play with gadgets.

"Z" setting up the first project, M & M tubes. 

Group photo with our completed projects. Look at those gorgeous SMILES!

A closeup of our projects. Don't you LOVE the PTI leaf die on the M&M tubes??? Did you spot the Verve Plain Jane verse on the card?

Everyone had fun! "Z" and I will need to collaborate more often. ~Rhonda


The FIRST day of November is HERE!!! We are having a beautiful fall with clear days and perfect temperatures which is a little strange for Texas.

I have been working feverishly to get ready for a craft show on the 13th. One of the things I needed to figure out is how to display everything. My sweet husband made this wood and wire art piece to show off the cards. What do you think?? Contemporary?

Now here it is with cards!!! I'm hoping that these will draw shoppers over!!

If you have any presentation ideas or tips from your experiences, I would love for you to share!! ~Rhonda
