Every little girl likes Paper Dolls




Here is a Christmas tin I made for a little girl for Christmas.  I wanted her to have a variety of paper dolls with different hair colors and bathing suits.  I stamped several outfits on designer paper and cut them out.  I left room for her to pick some clothes of her choice.  I used velcro to put them in the tin for storage.  Thin magnets should work well, too.   I thought tin would be very convenient  for storing the clothes  and the dolls.

These paper dolls will be in the Mark's Finest Paper store next week.  We will also have a blog hop next week so be sure and join us.

Thanks, for stopping by today and be sure and let me know what you think of  the paper dolls.

Speedy Fox and Friends - Happy New Year

Speedy Fox and Friends theme for this week's challenge is to make a New Years card.
I use the new set by Mark's Finest Paper called "New Years".    I colored the image with copics.
I thought a New Years card definitely needed to be "blinged up" so I added some gems and ribbon with silver cording.  The paper is by Color Bok.

As always, we hope you will join us for the challenge.  Thanks, for stopping by today.

Speedy TV Inspiration Challenge - Cookie Jars

The Speedy TV Inspiration Challenge is all about cookie jars this week.  I really thought I was going to
do the pink and blue cookie jar because I have that same cookie jar.  When I was getting ready to look for paper for it, I switched and went with the Campbell's Soup cookie jar.   I used  Mark's Finest Paper
stamps- Celebrate Big, Country Charm and Flaps my Wattles.  The sentiment is computer generated.
Come on over to Speedy TV and join us for this challenge.  You will find the inspiration pictures below.



Thanks for stopping by today.

Speedy Fox and Friends - Christmassy Birthday card

Today Speedy Fox has  a challenge for a birthday card, but it must have a look of Christmas to it.   Now I have just the perfect birthday card for someone who has a December birthday.  I wanted to make it so it could be for a man or a woman so I decided that black would be a perfect color for it.  I used the
Mark's Finest Paper stamps "Christmas Cardinal" and "Pansy Riot".

Thanks, for stopping by today.

SpeedyTV Inspiration challenge #42 - "Glamper" Interiors

The Speedy TV Inspiration challenge this week was another one that I really liked, I think it is because I love those vintage "glampers" inside and out.    I used Stampin' Up paper.  The
Mark's Finest Paper stamp I used is called "Huge Blooms".  I stamped it direct to my paper and fussy cut it.  I took a  Sharpie Poster painter and added the white to make the flower pop.  I learned this trick from Angela Bode, a Sister designer for MFP.   I think she used a different type of white pen.  I need to find out, my Sharpie kept fading into the paper and I had to keep adding more white.  Below you will find the Inspiration pictures, I think you will be able to pick out the one I was inspired by.



I hope you will head on over to Speedy TV Inspiration Challenge and join us for this challenge.
Thanks, for coming by today.

Clearly Dramatic with Bling



Todays Splitcoast Stampers TLC challenge is to use clear embossing on dark paper with clearly dramtic results.  The CAS challenge is to bling it up so I combined the challenges.  I used a ODBD stamp that a friend sent me for my BD.  I really love this Christmas collage stamp.

Hope you are having a great day.  Thanks, for stopping by.

Speedy Fox and Friends - Use three Christmas papers


The Speedy Fox and Friends challenge for today is to use three designer papers on our projects.
I needed two tags so I made this for this challenge.  I used the Mark's Finest Paper stamp sets called
"Holly Jolly" and "Holiday Tag".   For the berries, I used sequins and added some ribbon to complete my tags.

I decided to recycle a paper bag for my wrapping paper.  Here is the package with the bag I stamped to match the tag.


Be sure and come on over to the blog and join us for the challenge.  Thanks, for stopping by today.

Speedy TV Inspiration Challenge - Glamper Fun - Exteriors

I have had a blast making my card for the Speedy TV Inspiration challenge his week.   We got our inspiration from some of the cutest glampers.  Have you read about the Glamper craze?  People are buying retro campers/travel trailers and giving them a face lift.  I have see so many cute ones.   When I first heard of this, I thought it was silly, but it sure has grown on me.   I think it would be a fun thing to do.   I used the Mark's Finest Paper stamps "Mountain Selections" and "Scenic Selections" on my card.  I cute the little glamper with a Silhouette.   Around the fence and the  "Cottage Cutz" trees I added a little Spanish Moss.    Below you will find the inspiration pictures.














What do you think of these cute glampers?  There are a lot of cuter ones out there, too.  I just thought these would be fun colors to work with.

I want you to feel free to come on over to Speedy TV Inspiration challenge and join us for the fun this week.  See you there.
