These photos were taken when my boys were almost 3 (I wrote 2007, but it was really 2006, oops..I'll have to find a way to fix that). It was thier first time dying eggs and they of course LOVED it. I love the little hand in the glass...who needs spoons, right? The paper is from DCWV Sweet stack, the blue is SU, the bunny is SU stamped/embossed and hand cut, the word EGGS is from the Kitchen cart and the actual eggs are part of a freebie 6 pack for SCAL2. If your doing the eggs, some of the designs are intricate, so I would keep them at 1.5 inch or bigger, do blackout for a base. I was going to post a picture of the six pack, but something is up with blogger and it won't let me do what I need to do....so you'll just have to download to see it.
Thanks for looking!

My name is Shirley, and I am a paper hoarder. I buy pretty paper, but I don't have the courage to use it. I'll buy a whole pretty stack, and only use the papers out of it I like least. Sad. Yesterday I tried to break out of my bad habit a bit and got out my EveryDay Blessings paper pack from PaperTray. I used my new cartridge (Straight from the nest) and stampin up top note die to make a few cards. The grass/stems are from the cartridge cut at 2 1/4. For inside and outside, each card sucked up 4 sheets from my pretty 6x6 stack, it was hard, but worth it, with the pop dots and all those layers, they are thick pure paper yummy-ness. The bunny stamp is stampin up, embossed chocolate on chocolate and hand cut. My challenge for all you paper hoarders for the weekend - you know who you are - is to get out some of that paper, take a deep breath - and CUT!

I got a new cart in the mail yesterday and although I have other things I should be doing, I chose to play (I've had NO time to play and I'm having withdrawls!) I did an "Even in Pink they are 100% boy" scrappage, and then with my "oops" tree I made a quick card. For the card the tree is at 4 inches and the friend verse is at 3/4 (real dial size ON). For the grass I used a gathered strip of 12 x 3/8 inch paper, I ran a strip of sticky tape on the card, then just pressed the folds into it, no need to sew (why didn't I think of that sooner?). This card is for my friend that was supposed to come visit me today, but she is home with a sick husband and we all know how fun that is. Now its time for me to put things away for a bit, but I'm hoping to get a couple more cards in later today with this fun new cartridge. Thanks for looking!

We have a new little girl in the family and today I got to go see her at the hospital. I wanted a little "add-on" gift so I made these for her closet. I used New Arrival characters cut at 2 1/4 inch, then used story book to make the scalloped rectangle (3.5 inch) and the tag part (I used DS for that, if you want the file, leave a note, but it was only two pieces from Storybook welded). I added a jumbo eyelet and tied it to a baby hanger with some ribbon. The age tags are printed on the computer (Harrison font at 20pt) in colors to match each tag and punched them out with the Stampin Up word window punch. I used pop dots on the animals and the age labels to give them some life. Thanks for looking!
