Easter Bucket

Posted by creativemindsstampalike on January 25, 2009

Hey everyone!!

I know it’s been awhile since I posted.  Just been busy with these swaps I’ve become addicted to lately!!  It’s just so much fun to see what others come up with and inspire ideas of my own.  Here is an easter bucket I’m doing for my Easter swap.  We are taking a dozen eggs and filling them with something crafty like brads, eyelets, just anything that will fit in the eggs.  We can also, but don’t have to,  alter a basket or some kind of cantainer to put our eggs in and it will be swap with one that someone else did.  I used a clear paint can that I got from a naked swap I did in December.  It made the cutest Easter bucket so I just had to share.  Hope you all had a great weekend!!!    WendyEaster BucketEaster Bucket top view

Hey everyone!!  Wanted to tell you about a fun new swap I am hosting on Splitcoaststampers.

I have a hard time coming up with cards for the men in my life….my husband and teenage boys (my 5 yr. old is easy)   So anyway I decided to host one for everyone to design a MALE card.  You do 5 +1 and send them to me and in return you get 5 different cards back.  You should check it out!! It will be a lot of fun.  And the one that my husband likes the best will win a prize.  Michele will also be hosting some too.  I will post them as soon as they are ready 🙂

Have a great week!!!

Card Swaps

Posted by creativemindsstampalike on January 10, 2009

Good Morning everyone!!  Hope you all had a great week!!  Mine was okay getting everyone back in the routine of getting up early for school.  But they survived…haha  I did find time to make a couple of cards yesterday for my swap on Splitcoaststampers.  This swap is a monthly card swap where 3 people are chosen each month to receive a card from everyone in the group.  So I decided to get a little ahead and make my cards to send out for February, and once my creativity started, I was on a roll so I also made my cards for March!!!

February Card

  • CS:  Pretty in Pink, Pale Plum, Whisper White, Orchid Opulence
  • Ink:  Orchid Opulence, Pixie Pink
  • Stamp Set:  Something New to Love

I just stamped a simple heart on the inside so personal sentiments can be written.

February Card Inside

This one with the butterfly is my favorite.  It is even prettier in person!!

March Card

  • CS:  Sahara Sand, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla
  • Ink:  Basic Brown, Wild Wasabi (retired), Cool Carribean (retired)
  • Stamp Set:  Garden Whimsy

If you want instructions of either of these just let me know and if you would like to order the items to make them check out my Stampin’ Up! website……Hope you like them!!!  Have a great weekend!

Getting Organized!!!

Posted by creativemindsstampalike on January 7, 2009

Yes, once again, my new year resolution!  I get organized but then it’s not long until I need to do it all over again.  So, guess I should say I’m going to stay organized this year.  Michele found the blog to these cute shelves at Rebel Inker.  My sweet husband made the one for my ink pads, and bless his heart, it took him 3 hours+.  I wasn’t even going to ask him to make another one…hehehe And Michele’s husband made her one, and was not looking forward to making her another one for her ribbon.  So I decided to give it a try.  It was a piece of cake.  I had it finished in 1 hour….lol  And then I decided to come up with one that would hold my markers.  So, I’m on my way to organization!!!
