Erin Go Bragh

I have been playing with the cup cake holders again, these are the small ones, you can pick them up 100 for $2.99, they are so much fun to create with.  A little hint - dip the holder in water and then smooth it out on a flat surface when you have it all smooth then iron it.  I used hot set webbing on this holder and then ironed it to the candle, if you get the candle at the 99cent store you have a great holiday decoration for half the output. 
And here is a card done with the same cup cake holders, the shamrocks were cut out with 3/4" and 1" circles, the stamp set is from Hero Arts. 
Happy Monday, Hugs

Some Luck of the Irish

Sending out some luck to all of you.  The dark green shamrocks were printed on the cardstock using "Everday Paperdolls" with the cart and "I".  Then cut out the larger ones and glittered them up.  The tag is computer generated.
I will be posting infrequently until after April 15th but I will be keeping all of you in my thoughts and in my heart. Hugs

Happy Birthday Bookmarks

Cut at 2.0 the "bee-utiful" banner from "Imagine More" cart makes a great bookmark.  After getting the hang of it, it is easier than it looks.  I changed the colors (but not in layers), I did the bee in a pattern and then cut out a bee just a little bit smaller for a little dimension. I love the "Happy Birthday" from Lori's Garden, it is printed at 4.0 and added some musical notes from a QK die.

This is the back ( it is blank so it can be personalized.)
Then I printed out the bookmark using the standard bee and flipped the image and adhered them. I have mentioned this before but it is worth restating, when customizing with the Imagine be sure to write down your numbers so if you want to recreate the project you do not have to re-invent the wheel.  The composition books at the Dollar Tree are perfect for this process.

 This is another one.  Happy Tuesday, Hugs

The Imagine is the most used tool in my studio, but each time I use it I realize I am not using it to its full potential and this is now my goal, to start beefing up and expanding my use of the fantastic "I".    The background papers are this are scraps, the caked plate cut using the gypsy and "I" from velum, "Celebrate" is a stamped image from DenamiDesign.  The candle is from QK.  The cupcake was cut using the "SweetTreats" cart gypsy and "I", I then used a Fiskars Clear Stamp Set "Cupcakes and More/Petits, coloring done with the Copics.
This is the inside, the lined paper was cut using the "Imagine More" cart, I then took the "Happy Birthday" from "Lori's Garden" and printed it onto the lined paper.  The candles again are QK.  Happy Monday, Hugs, Sandi

Memory Keepers

Hi there, hope your having a wonderful Super Bowl Sunday.  Tomorrow is the viewing for Beau and then Tuesday is the funeral.  I did this as a special gift for Lois (Beau's widow), although she is surrounded by a devoted family and friends there is still a big void there.  Hope it helps just a tiny bit.
This is a paper bag album/memory keeper.  Its overall size is 5 1/2"X 5 1/2" , it was bound with the Cinch and the background papers are "Graphic 45" for the cover and inside pockets are "Pixie Press".  The tags were stamped using StampinUp and Yes, my sentiments.  The photo corners are EKSuccess and the Flourish is from QK. Misc. angel charm, gems, silver thread, ribbon and silver squares at the corners of the cover.
There are 10 pockets, each pocket has a journal card and the back is blank for a picture or more journaling, stamps used StampinUp and Hero Arts.
I used one of the tags as a book mark and had to add one of my signature dragonflies. Have a safe and Happy week. Hugs

Adios Amigo

My son's Father and my friend passed on Sunday, we were divorced but we were still family.  He was very much a part of my life and my heart.

A Tribute to Beau Michael Boyer

Beau was BIG in stature
He was BIG in Heart
If you wanted it done, ask Beau
If you wanted a hug, ask Beau
If you needed a song to lift your spirits, ask Beau
He would buy you a beer or help mend your fence.
He could tell stories that would make you laugh or bring you to tears.
He could carry you to Heaven or drive you to Hell.
He was human
May his train stop in Heaven, may the angels welcome him
with song, May he rest in Peace.
We Love You BIG Guy!
