Meet Marisol!

     Hello!  Happy Monday to you! I spent some time this weekend playing with some of my new Prima doll stamps!  Have I mentioned how absolutely nutty I am over these cute stamps?!!  I wanted to show you how versatile one of the stamps can be.  I challenged myself to use one doll stamp only and the clothing accessories that you can purchase to go with her.  This is Marisol:

The accessories pack of clothing stamps comes with this mini dress, 1 short skirt and 1 long skirt.

Here she is with the short skirt (double layered!).

The short skirt on the bottom of the mini dress!

This is the mini dress with the long skirt, but I shortened it and gave it a double layer trim.

Here she is with the mini dress and the long skirt!  I added an over lay to the top of the skirt using doilies.

Here they are all together!  I made the bows out of heart punches and a hole punch and added lots of little flowers using the smallest scalloped circle punch and hole punch.

I made this tag to tuck into a pocket letter!  

I am having the absolute best time playing with these stamps! They are just so much fun! There are so many possibilities!  I have several more that haven't even seen ink yet, but I will be sure to share them once they do!

Off to tackle my day!   Hope you have a good one!  I will be back soonest with more to share!

Pocket letter love!

Hello!  Hope you are having a nice weekend!  I had a few minutes and thought I would stop by and share a couple of pocket letters with you!  One of my pals was feeling blue recently and needed a pick me up so we agreed on the theme of "Happy!".  This is the one I made to try and brighten her day:

I embossed clouds into the background pieces and sponged all of the edges with Stampin' Ups! Bermuda Bay. All of the butter flies are cut using SU! dies or punched with their punches.  I popped every one of those little guys up with a dimensional and they appear to be flying right off the page!


Here is another one for a pal that is having a birthday! 

Lots of color!  5 different shakers pockets on this one for lots of bday fun!

Lots of stuff popped up on the outside too!

Sorry to post and run, but my gma is waking up and is very serious about lunch time so  am off to make that happen!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!  I will be back soonest with more to share!

My new obsession!!

Hey there!  So, I told you that I had a new and different post to share with you today!  I am soooooo excited about this!!!!  About three months ago I stumbled upon a new line of stamps.  (Ok, they aren't really new, but they were new to me!)  They are becoming very popular in the Pocket Letter community (which is over 5,000 people big now wooo hooooo!!).  I must admit at first glance I wasn't completely enamored with these!  I barely gave them a second glance in fact!  Once I started to pay more attention though I started to really like them!  So, then I started to collect them! LOL  I own several now and finally for the first time in a couple of months was able to sit down and play with a  couple.  I am head over heels, totally and completely smitten with these new cuties!!  They are Prima  doll stamps and they were designed by Julie Nutting.  They are basically a grown up's version of paper doll stamps!!  You stamp them and then create clothing using any medium you like!!  The possibilities are endless!!!  Take a look!

This is what she looks like stamped straight from the package:

This is Olive!  First thing you may notice is that she is faceless!  Well, that is the first thing I noticed anyhow!  That bothered me...a lot! Once I found out though that you can also get little faces (different company...weird, huh?!) I started whistling a whole different tune!  My faces haven't arrived yet though so we will just have to pretend she has a face! ;)    Anyhow, Olive is 7.5" tall!!  She's giant and I love that!  Way too big for a card, but perfect for a hundred million other projects!  The  creative side of my brain is in over-drive right now!!

Here she is after I colored her skin and hair.    I used Stampin' Ups! Blendabilities, but sadly they have all retired.   

Here she is all dressed up!  I added an extra layer to the bottom of her dress and made a flower to attach to her head band.  I also added a tiny  little necklace made of pearls!  I made the clothes by paper piecing them.  I am discovering that I really, really love that technique.   This is such fun stuff!!!

Here is a second one that I made! Her name is Dita and I think she is adorable!  I also added an extra layer to the bottom of her dress!  LOL  

Here are the two together!  I am so excited for all the possibilities these dolls offer!!  I can see lots and lots of projects in my future with these cuties!!  I have several more that haven't seen ink yet, but I'll be sure to share as they do!  I am hooked!!!

Ok, well I better scoot!  Hope that you have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!

Lady bug, lady bug!!

Hiya!  I have a really fun pocket letter to share with you today! I made this one for one of my on going pen pals!  We have been crafting buddies for years and I am so excited for her to receive it!!  I filled the back with all  kinds of fun goodies for her planner (but since she may not have received it yet I will refrain from posting those!).

I have no idea if she likes lady bugs or not, but I am hoping these are cute enough to sway her if she doesn't! LOL

Tag which she can  add to her planner if she wishes! The lady bug is made from punches and the whole  thing is  fused together with the cool new Fuse tool.

Lots of punched hearts and a lil' bit of stamping!

This one too!

Made this little cutie using Porter!

This one too!

I had so much fun making this letter!  It took me three days to do (10 minutes here and 20 minutes there!), but was totally worth it!  Hope she loves it!


I have something completely different (and so exciting I could pee!!!) to share with you tomorrow!!  I hope that you have a good day today and I will see you soonest!

Fun with Porter!

Hello there!  Quick post today!  I spent some time recently playing with my Silhouette cutting machine (Porter!) and am really enjoying using it!  It has so many possibilities!  I have been printing, cutting and piecing lately!  Here are a few of the things we have made:

Isn't that the cutest little doggie?!  It was in about 1,000 pieces before I glued them all together! LOL

Same with this cute kitty!!

My little lady!!

This one is my favorite!!

She is kind of giant and oh soooooo cute!!  Who can resist such a sweet little (well kind of little!) face?!  

Hope you are having a good day!  I hate to post and run, but I must!  I will be back soonest with more to share!

Fur babies!

Hello there!  Hope you are having a nice week!  I have been busy up to my eyeballs, but wanted to stop by and share my latest pocket letter with you!  I have slowed way down on making these lately because my time has become pretty limited.  I have tried though to devote at least a little bit of each day to being a little bit creative and crafty!  Here is one that took me three days to make! LOL

I hope that you are finding the time to be creative!  Have a wonderful day and I will be back  soonest with more to share!

Coffee...yes please!

Hi there!  Are you a coffee drinker?  I am!  Let me tell you a sweet hubby and I will be celebrating 25 years of marriage this year!  I have known him since I was 12 and am still head over heels, nutty, crazy, madly in love with him.  He is my very best friend!  He tells me daily, but more importantly shows me daily with his very kind actions how much he loves me.  One of the things he does for me is makes me coffee and brings it to me every morning.  It is a simple gesture that speaks volumes to my heart!!  He is simply the best!  I've rambled...ok, back to the post!  I made a coffee themed pocket letter for one of my very sweet on-going pen pals!  Here it is:

Lots of coffee goodness on the inside and fun things popped up on the outside!

Some goodies to be tucked into the back pockets!

And another!

More goodies! The cups are made using Porter and the donuts (can I get a big yum?!!) are made from punches!

Here it is again after I added the little dangle-y side tag!

Not unlike the others this one was a lot of fun to create!  Hope my pal likes it!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!  I will be back soonest with more to share!
