Tile Coasters

I found a tutorial on Stamp TV on a really simple and quick way to make beautiful tile coasters. I just happened to have 8 tumbled tiles that I brought home as a sample for by back splash, so I made a set for my Father in law and a set for myself. I used my 2 favourite stamp sets from Stampin Up These actually took more time to set up and clean up then to actually make. Give them a try! I also had a chance to work on a LO this weekend too! I was actually able to complete the Friday Formula from one of my favourite scrappy sites Create My Keepsake. Thanks for stopping by & have a great night.

Oh--Just a reminder that the new Stampin' Up catalogue debuts on July 1st. Take a look at the Last Chance stamps and accesories. Once they are gone, they are gone forever!

Latest card to share

Well--it has been a long time since I have been able to post! I have been busy finishing up the home renovations, staining and varnishing the furniture (that we had custom built), and various other things all on top of working full time. Okay, so I snuck a bit of card-making into the mix. I am probably the only person I know that can have varish, stain, paint and glitter on them in one day! This card I made is for a lady that I work with who has been taking my card classes. She wanted a special card for her granddaughter's Christening but could not find anything she really likes. She is still in the beginning stages of becoming a stamper, so she is lacking in supplies and asked if I could do one for her. So this is the one I came up with. I hope she likes it! Have a great rest of the week. Thanks for looking.
