Baby Girl Memory Pail & Tin Set

What a cute set for baby's first year!?!?!   On this memory can & tin set, I used certainly celery, baja breeze, and pink piroquette (last two are retired).  The alphabet set is taffy.  I used chipboard for the hearts and since I didn't have craft ink for the two retired colors, it was a bit of a challenge.  But I figured it out (emboss them white first, add your color to the white, and emboss with iridescent ice to finish).  I just love making these sets.  I know they'll be cherish forever.  This set was an order that I was just finishing up.  A set costs $33 or if you just want the memory can it's $18 and the memory tin is $20.  Let me know what you think!

Scrap Night at my Sister's

I am really enjoying scrapping every few weeks over at my sister's house.  Sure it's a pain in the butt to pack up what you "think" you'll be using...but it's a lot better than not getting anything done.  And I know I always hear that people never have time to scrap...well this year...I'm MAKING time!  That doesn't mean that my house isn't going to stay clean or I'm not involved in my children's lives...it just means, I'm taking time too...to do what I love!  But anyways...one to the pages!!!!

Bufflies Fly Away!!!

This is a paint can that someone ordered for a baby shower.  It has a cute saying on the back.  I used some retired colors (Baja Breeze, Pink Piroquette, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White).  I also used the new punch Scallop Trim Punch that you earn for FREE with a $50 order!  The butterflies I used were all Big Shot accessories:  Beautiful Wings (Embosslits Die in Mini Catalog) and the Beautiful Butterflies die in the annual catalog.

I make customized paint cans and memory tins for all occassions.  Let me know if you need one!!!
