Our New Adventure

Our family has made the journey from Maryland to Florida. We all arrived safe and sound and are now staying at my dad’s house until we go to settlement on the house we are planning to purchase. I don’t want to jinx us by posting pics of it yet but hopefully everything will go through with no problem since the first house we wanted ended up needing a new septic and lots of other things we couldn’t really handle.

For now we are enjoying time with our family in Florida and the boys are loving staying at poppops, so close to the water. My dad lives right on a canal and yesterday there’s were quite a few quick heavy rainstorms that flooded his lower dock. The boys thought it was the coolest thing. Here are some pics of the boys having fun in the water. I can’t wait to scrap the pics from yesterday.

Valentine’s Treat

  I participate in a local swap every month with a great group of ladies. I will definitely miss meeting with them at Panera Bread every month for an evening of good food, good company, relaxed conversation and wonderful swaps!! I truly hope I’m able to do something like it when I get to Florida but with definitely miss my girls here in Maryland.

For the month of January we had a love/ valentine’s etc theme. I decided to create a little 3-D gift. I used the Big Shot and the Matchbox Die to create this cute little box which is big enough to hold 4 hershey minis. I chose to put heart shaped chocolates in my box 🙂

To decorate the box I used the Petals of Plenty embossing folder and the large Heart Punch to create the heart in the background. The Best Friends cardstock sticker came from an old Scrappin Kit that I had. You can use any type of personalization here. I also added some little pearl accents at the bottom just for a little added touch.

So Grateful

On Friday I received my order from the NEW Occasions Mini and Sale A Bration catalogs. I didn’t know what to play with first. Today I’m going to a gathering and we are exchanging swaps. The only requirement is that the swap has to have pink in it. So I chose to use the NEW Apothecary Art Stamp Set with the matching Labels Framelits. I decided to make a simple but elegant card which is easily reproduced. I added pearl accents to add a little something special.

You can purchase all the materials for making this card at my website or by contacting me at shorestamper@hotmail.com or (410) 476-7757

Christmas Card for Local Swap

I just finished making 12 of this card for a local card swap. This months theme is Christmas. I love doing swaps because it gives me a chance to get many cards in different styles to send to my family and friends. It also is great to get together once a month with friends to swap cards, chit chat and of course eat!! LOL

For this card I used the Letters to Santa Paper which features Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive and Marina Mist. I also used the Lace Ribbon Border, Chocolate Chip Scallop Dots Ribbon and the Dasher stamp. Dasher is a single stamp which makes it an inexpensive option for beginners and stampers on a budget and he’s ADORABLE!!
