Yowzer!!! As a Kindergarten teacher and a mom of high schoolers, I’ve been on high gear lately. Prepping for end of year festivities as well as attending end of year band concerts and various sports banquets has kept me out of my craft room. Boo! The dust will settle soon, but in the meantime I thought I’d post some of my favorite projects from this past year. Be sure to read the funny story I shared for the fourth card posted.
I’m offering Blog Candy … Without going to Pinterest :), guess which of these projects received the most repins. Leave your guess in a comment below and state WHY you think it received the most. If several people guess the correct one, I’ll put those names in a hat. I’ll reveal the results on Friday, May 22nd.
I was on a Gorgeous Grunge kick with this card. This was one of those projects that came to me without much effort. It was as if “Truffula trees” was whispered in my ear. Don’t you love that?

This is one of my favorites because of the brayer technique that created the mottled background. A video tutorial explains how this was done. See the original post here.
If you’re familiar with my blog, you know that I love, love, love the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. I’ve showcased it numerous times because it’s sooooo versatile as shown here. This box was featured in the November/December Stampin’ Success magazine that we SU! Consultants receive. Stampin’ Success is a fabulous magazine with oodles of ideas – and it’s just another great benefit to being a Consultant. If you would like to discuss the many other benefits, I’d love to speak with you! See the original post with template and video tutorial here.
I can vividly remember the day this was stamped. My friend and fellow stamper, Lynn Dunn, was here and we were playing with new product that we had preordered from the upcoming Occasions Catalog. We had so much fun that day! I had just invited her to stay for dinner when we used my new Big Shot for the first time. As I cranked the die through, the Cutting Pads made that loud cracking sound that they often do. We had no idea that that was normal so we freaked out! I stood there bewildered and silent for a few moments and then hurriedly announced that she had to go home. Ba ha ha ha!!! Why did I send her home after having invited her for dinner? We still laugh about that today. You can see my original post here.
This card is probably one of my top three things I’ve ever stamped. Ever! I made several of them and have had a hard time using them. If you received one of these cards from me you are mighty special. And if you didn’t, well … You can see my original post here.
It’s hard to see in this photo, but there are trees heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder on the white base of the card. Oo la la. So pretty. You can see my original post here.
Peek-a-boo! I love this little birdie from the SAB stamp set A Happy Thing. After stamping and coloring the bird, I smooshed the whole circle punched paper into my Versamark pad and then heat embossed it several times with Clear Embossing Powder to give it a high sheen. See my original post here.
I hope you had fun going down memory lane with me. I’ll post another Memory Lane later in the week. Be sure to comment on which project you think was repinned the most – and state why. I’ll announce on my blog this Friday who won the blog candy.
