bagged & tagged

I'm getting a jump on mother's day projects with papertrey ink's "bagged & tagged" challenge:

stamps:  papertrey ink
papers:  stampin' up
dies:  papertrey ink
embellishments:  ribbon - stampin' up; glitter - stampin' up

spring into action

this papertrey ink anniversary stamp set hadn't seen ink until today. . . and actually, there are a few more sets in the drawer that haven't either.  (so many stamps . . . so little time)  my mother will turn 85 next month - I sure hope I inherit her longevity!

stamps:  papertrey ink, stampin' up
papers:  stampin' up
dies:  papertrey ink

build a bouquet

I don't use yellow very often (I think I need to branch out a bit!) but I was getting tired of all the red & pink for valentine's day.  I pulled from 4 different stamp sets to create this sunny little birthday bouquet . . .

stamps:  papertrey ink
papers:  stampin' up, papertrey ink
dies:  papertrey ink
embellishments:  sequins - avery elle; baker's twine - the twinery

celebrating blue skies . . . with blue ombre

well, blue just happens to be my VERY favorite color, and my creative goals this year are to: use more vellum; experiment with watercolor techniques . . . so here are both!

stamps:  papertrey ink
papers:  papertrey ink, stampin' up
dies:  papertrey ink
embellishment:  rhinestone from my stash
