Has Christmas Gone to the Dogs?

I had an exciting project this week.  My mom wanted me to make a special Christmas card for her hair dresser who loves dogs.  Hmmmmm….OK.
I started searching Google for any interesting designs and eventually landed on this beauty.  I was LOLing at my computer and knew it was perfect!
I embellished the curlers with Stickles and then made the snowflakes with a Sizzix die.  I used sticker paper upside down for them and then added lots of loose glitter.  Finished it off with a rhinestone brad and lots of tulle.
Inside, I wanted to do some kind of hair-themed statement, so I hand-stamped this unique Christmas sentiment:
I think it was a hit ~ my mom didn’t even send it to her hair dresser for 3 days, as she wanted to show all her friends first.  That’s the best!  🙂
Merry Christmas!
XOXO

Birthday Girl

I recently made this birthday card for a very special 4-yr-old.  I thought the image looked just like her, so I was excited to make this unique greeting for her. 
I was also in the middle of moving, so I only had about 1/2 my scrapbook supplies on hand (how did I make it through without my goodies, you ask?  It wasn’t easy!)
I had no access to buttons, brads or ribbon, so I had to be a bit creative.  🙂 
I went a little Stickles crazy here and then embellished the card with tons of flowers and rhinestones.  The scalloped ovals and swirls in the corners are from the Storybook Cricut cartridge.

(Re)Discover the Joy of Stamping

Ever have the supplies that you just have to have, but then never end up using?  Stamps are that never used must have for me.  It wasn’t until my 8-year-old niece came over this weekend that I re-discovered how much fun stamping can be (not to mention all the versatility)!
She asked to see my stamps so she could craft with Aunt Gen (that’s what we do here at Gen Co.)  I took all my stamp drawers out for her and realized that I have a metric ton of these rubbery embellishments!  
I began organizing my stash and then I felt like playing.  I spent the rest of the weekend making dozens of these cute little summery treats.  My hubby came home Saturday night to find penguins as far as the eye can see!
 
I had so much fun!  Granted, it does take more time than using ready-made embellishments, but there is a real satisfaction that comes with building from scratch.
I went all out on these mini-cards, too.  I was feelin’ it ~ from Stickles to watercolor pencils ~ it was crafting madness this weekend!
  
These mini-cards are my new
