Happy Monday Morning

This is how I spent my Sunday afternoon.
I saw this awesome banner and knew I had to make one.
I would have been much happier making it in shades of pink
but, Maggie has changed her favorite color to blue.
So, since it is for her, I decided to make it with her
colors in mind.
I LOVE how it turned out. I wish I had a picture
of her face when I gave it to her. She was so thrilled with it.
That makes it all worth it!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a happy Monday. XO, Mimi

Third Time's a Charm!

Ok, this is the last tri fold card, for this week.
I just love them and they are soooo easy!
This card is for my friend's husband. His B-Day was Saturday
so, hopefully he has already seen it and likes it.
The paper is from Basic Grey. Remember Skate Shoppe
and Lollipop Shoppe? I loved those lines!
I still have a few sheets left and I use them sparingly.
Thanks for checkin' it out. XO, Mimi

Have a great "Hump Day! XO, Mimi

Tri Fold Cards

I found these awesome tri fold cards and envelope packs at Michaels and thought, "I can do somethin' cool with them."
So I did.
This card has American Crafts paper and a stamp set from TPC Studio.
You know how I love coffee stamps. *wink*
It was super easy to make.
I just covered the first two panels with the AC paper and then I cut the windows with my Nestabilities and Voila!
Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy! LOL!
Thanks for stoppin' by! XO, Mimi

Too Funny to not post.

Friday night, my friends came over to play in The Studio.
We always have lots of creative fun.
Especially when Jello Shots are involved.
Well, the last of them didn't leave till around 1:30am.
This is what happens to me at 1:30am after a night of Jello shots and paper crafting.
That's right, I grow a mustache! LOL!
Have a great "First day of School". WaHoo!

P.S. I made the pic small so I wouldn't scare anyone too bad.

Scrapbook in a day!

I made this cute little scrapbook for my friend's daughter to show the photos that I took at her Sweet 16th party. Hope she likes it.
The album I picked up in the clearance bin at Michaels for $1.99 and the paper is BoBunny from Serendipity Kits. The ribbon is a little bit of everything but my favorite is the glitter! I love glitter!
Well, I have to do a demo on the Cricut and Your Story at work today so, see you soon. Have a great Sunday! XO, Mimi

The Card Cafe' Debut

What a great workshop! Yesterday, was the debut of a workshop that I call Card Cafe'. It is an "all you can make" buffet. I pulled out lots of fun embellishments, papers, cards and envelopes, ribbons, stamped images, stickers, flowers, stamps, inks, punches, etc. You get the idea? Everyone had such a great time creating fabulous works of art. These are a few of the pictures that I took of their work and of the buffet table.

Feeding the Fishies

Yes, I really did scrap another page.

These are more photos from our trip to The Keys.
This is at a place called Robbies where you get to feed the HUGE tarpon. They jump and swim on top of each other to get to the food. It is really fun to watch. The kids really loved it. I think everyone got in on the action but me. I was happy standing back snapping pictures. That is, until my batteries died. Argh!

Thanks for looking. Have a fabulous Friday! XO, Mimi

What's all the hype about chandeliers?

I really don't know why chandeliers are so "IN" right now but I have tried to fight the urge until I found a nice little set at Michaels with several different chandeliers. Low and behold, while blurfing,(blog surfing), I came accross this beautiful card and couldn't wait to make my own version. I think it is very pretty. Happy Thursday. XO, Mimi

Playdate scrappy page

A couple weeks ago, Maggie had a playdate with a little girl that she has known since pre-school. They haven't seen each other since they started elementary school. When they were in pre-school, they were inseperable and so adoreable.
When Mags started summer camp, she came home one day and told me that Jenna was there and they are best bugs again.
I was so excited and just couldn't wait for them to get together and play.

I hope they are friends for a very long time.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great hump day! XO, Mimi

Let's Do Coffee!

I love coffee and anything to do with coffee. These chipboard coffee cups are a favorite of mine. They come on a chain from Maya Road so you can use them as a book but I like to use them individually on things.
This card was so much fun to make. I just dug through my scraps and came out with what you see. I honestly don't know the names of the different papers since they are just scraps but they looked fun when I put them together. The letters are from Michaels and they are just $1.00 so I feel free to use them up!
Hope you enjoyed coffee with me and Have a great day! XO, Mimi

My first CLEAR card

I have seen so many people making these great clear cards with transparency material and I finally decided to give it a try.
Super easy to do. I just ran my paper through the Xyron so that the adhesive wouldn't be ugly on the other side.
I used some KI Memories paper, that I have had for a while, along with some buttons, bling and Primas. I am thrilled with the end result and intend to make more soon.
Happy Monday to you and come back tomorrow for coffee! XO, Mimi

Love those vintage BINGO cards!

I saw a card like this on one of the blogs that I surf and decided it was time for me to print up some vintage BINGO cards. So, I hit the Google button and started searching for some pictures. When I found what I like, I printed some up on cardstock and made this little gem.
I love how it turned out!
Oh, and by the way, I made the crochet flower too!
I have been crocheting up a bunch of them.
They are so easy and fun to make.
I have started carrying my needle and thread with me so that I can do them anytime I am sitting and waiting with nothing to do.
Thanks for looking. Hope you have a relaxing Sunday! XO, Mimi

I'm a Slacker!

Sorry for the brief delay in posting. I had some very minor surgery done and have been busy, busy, busy ever since.
The card I am showing you today is one that I made for my dear friend's daughter, for her 16th birthday. It was a luau theme and she is not the real girly cutesy type so I tried to just make it look cool. I used the Cricut and the Life is a Beach cartridge. I accented the cutouts with chalk, glitter and a white pen. I was very happy with how it turned out and I am sure she was too.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Saturday! XO, Mimi
