Need a little "pick up"?

All puns aside, you "gotta" love this set from Stampin' Up. It is so versatile. You can use it for so many occasions. The samples I have today are thinking of you and birthday.

Toadily Simple!

With the cold winter weather, I just like to snuggle under a blanket and watch movies (which is what I did this weekend!) But I always have a hard time just sitting - so I like to keep my hands busy with some cutting. I cut a bunch of these toads (plus used up some of my left-over green scraps). I love the saying "You make me toadily happy". I thought this would be a cute Valentine sentiment for my first graders (because I "toadily" love them!!) Here are a few other simple ideas I to use up the rest of my toads! (I cut out 38 of them and I only have 21 students!)

Winter's Here!

Well, in Michigan - winter is here! I'm not much of an outdoor person, so this is the perfect time to settle in for some card making in my nice cozy room. Here are some cards perfect for this weather! I found these card kits at the Jo-Ann store. I love the patterned cards and the matching embellishments. I kept the cards simple and just added some Stampin' Up chocolate chip satin ribbon and I used a circle punch for the white circle and the Stampin' Up scallop punch for the chocolate chip scallop.
