Lots to Love Box 3D Lemonade Stand

Hi Stampers,

First of all, don't forget Sale-A-Bration will be ending at the end of this month--which is at the end of next week!!! EEEKKK!!! That went by way too fast!!! Can I ask something of you? I am close to meeting my goal I set for Sale-A-Bration but not quite there yet. Would you help me out and go to my website and place your order before next week? I would truly appreciate it!!

Now, for today's blog post. Playing with the Lemon Zest stamp set and Lemon Builder punch last week, I came up with the cute idea of making my own Lemonade Stand out of the Lots to Love Box Die. All you need to do is cut 2 of the box framelits only take one of the die cuts and cut off the tabs so the top is open. Then, take a layering square framelit and cut out the opening. Stamp with the Hardwood stamp. Put box together and decorate. I put in 2 of the Crystal Light drink mixes in mine. Isn't this cute? I used the Colorful Seasons stamp to make the little lemons and limes banner.




All decorated and ready to give away!!!

I hope I was able to inspire you in some way. I hope you get to play!!!

Make sure you go to my website to place your order!!! Thank you so much!!!

You've Got This


Hi Stampers,

Back for another installment of the Lazy Days of Summer. Well, being that it is shark week on tv, I had to try to make a shark card. I know a couple of people this would be good for. You know, the kind that are going through tough times, trying times and sometimes, they needed to be reminded that, hey---You've Got This!!! The bell punch with a couple of cuts makes a great shark fin don't you think?




I hope I inspired you in some way!! Be back tomorrow for another Lazy Days of Summer post!!

Thanks for stopping by!!


Sand Castle Treat Holder


Hi Stampers,

Today for my Lazy Days of Summer blog post, I made a Sand Castle Treat Holder. I saw one in the Silhouette Store but I don't own a Silhouette (insert sad face). So, I got out scrap paper and pencil and drew one.

Here are the four pieces you need. You can cut out the "treat holder" out of kraft cardstock-which, by the way, is coming back in the new Christmas Catalog!!!! This only uses one sheet of Gold Glimmer Paper. I thought the Gold Glimmer Paper looked like golden sand.


Download SandCastleTreatHolder

The treat holder "box" you will need to cut a piece of Kraft cardstock 2-1/2" x 9 inches. Score on the short side 1/2" on both sides. On the long side, score at 2" on each end.

The little circular towers I used a 3/4" circle punch to cut them out. I also used the smallest oval of the layering ovals framelits to cut out the 3 windows. I just partially die cut these and finished cutting across with scissors. I used the second bigger one to cut the door. I placed vellum on the back for the window and door covering. 

I traced my pattern on the back of the Gold Glimmer Paper and cut out. In fact, you can see some of my markings in the pics. 

You will need to use either Tombow green glue or tear and tape to adhere the box together. SNAIL will not hold!!!! I used dimensionals on the front of template to adhere to the bigger piece to give it some dimension.





I didn't even use any stamps on this project!!!

I found this candy at the Dollar Tree!!! Perfect for this treat holder.


Starting today, look what you get to order!!!

3D Seaside Shore


Hi Stampers,

Back for another Lazy Days of Summer post. I really like how this "card" turned out. I love the 3D feel it has to it. The only adjustment I would make next time is to make it longer. It does have a lot of fussy cutting but who cares. Cardmaking relaxes me and it is a lot cheaper than therapy (well, maybe *Ü*) The best part is -- it lays flat for shipping and fits into Stampin' Up! envelopes.



I stamped the sentiment on the back of the aquarium.


Again, I used the Seaside Shore. I "shore" am getting the use out of this stamp set!!!! LOL

Thanks again for stopping by!!


Life Preserved


Hi Stampers,

Today's card uses a different fold than the card from the other day.



I think it is a cute card for someone finishing swimming lessons, summer birthday or who just loves to swim!!! In the summer heat, who doesn't?

Thanks for stopping by!!!


DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #241- Oh So Eclectic


Hi Stampers,

This week's challenge is a Home Sweet Home challenge and I reached for my new stamp set Oh So Eclectic!!!! I have been wanting to use this and I also incorporated it into my summer theme for this week.

First off, I made my own DSP. I just took colors from the photo, inked up my stamps and went to town on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I then traced my flip flop template and cut out by hand. I have even included a template for you and the text. I was stumped for finding just the right sentiment. So, Voila!!! I typed my own!!! Enjoy!!!


All I could find on the internet were flip flop templates that were too large for Stampin' Up! envelopes so I made my own. If you cut a card base of 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and fold in half, as if you were making a card, place the one template on the fold line, trace and then cut out. I hope this makes sense (?) As always, if you have any questions please feel free to shoot me an email. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.


Here it is open.


Berry Burst is my FAV new in color this year but Lemon Lime Twist is a close second, so of course, I had to make one in those colors too!!! LOL I popped the toe thong up on dimensionals to give more of a 3D effect. I think these are so cute!!!

You are a Lifesaver


Hi Stampers,

For today's blog post  and enjoying the Lazy Days of Summer, I made a life preserver card. Just make your card base and punch a 1-3/4" hole where your head would pop out. Again, getting much use of this sentiment from Seaside Shore.
