This and That

Just a bunch of random stuff for you today...

1. There's a new podcast here.

2. A new Make It Monday video from me here. It's a tutorial on reverse masking (thanks for your suggestions!). Here's the card I'll be making.

3. Here's another card because I like bicycles and the 4th is coming up. I think I made a special online order just to get the double seater Hero Arts stamp. LOVE it!

Bike Stamp: Hero Arts
PTI's Background Basics: Stars, Banner Builder, Mixed Messages
Double Ended Banner Die
We R Memory Keepers patterned paper

4. And...saving the very best for last...guess who turned one last week! :) Hard to believe. The bigger she gets, the more excuses I have to buy her clothes. I have WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too much fun dressing her. Obviously. (ETA: The outfit is Gymboree and I bought it back in January/February. It's no longer available in the retail stores, but it can be found on Ebay for around $40. Or, if you are willing to wait a year and have a Gymboree Outlet nearby like I do, you can pick it up January/February 2012. Love the Gymbo Outlets. Just got Eliza three 2T summer outfits for next year for $28 total!)


  1. Love the cards but LOVE the adorable outfit on your little one even more! Where is that from??? My 9-month-old NEEDS that too :)

  2. Happy birthday to her!!! And, hahaha, I did that with each of my kids...first birthday party outfits were chosen months before the birthday (in the case of my son, he was a NEWBORN when I bought what he wore for his first birthday!) :) I adore that strawberry skirt!!! I love the tandem bike card...but then I love any red, white & blue card with bicycles of any sort on them.

  3. Look at that sweetie!!! AWWWWWW. ;)
    Such an interesting stamp! Love the idea of using it for the 4th of July. ;)

  4. Oh so precious she is!!! I love the cards!!

  5. I'll try it this way. Since for some reason when I try to leave you a comment it NEVER goes...we will see if this one works.

    Oh, my GOSH she is ONE already. Where does the time go.
    She sure is a cutie, oh, and so are ALL of your projects
