Published: Day Wasted?

A day without paper, ink and stamps is a day wasted.  Stampers, don't you love that sentiment?  It's by There She Goes Clear Stamps.

This is one of my older designs.  I believe this was my card at a Shoe Box Swap back in the day.  I was on a big doily kick.  I like to say, I was doilies when doilies weren't cool.  Now they are popular to craft with.  I still like making cards with doilies, I just haven't made as many lately.

I Want a Hippoppotamus for Christmas!

Sing it with me...

"I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles
No rhinoceroses
I only like hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me too"

I love hearing that song this time of year :)

Now back to our regularly-scheduled programming...

I saw this non-Christmas stamp (Stampendous! V271 Hippo Cycle) and knew I had to make a card for my friend Jane with it.  (From a recent adventure with her, I learned that she likes to count hippopotamuses...she'll know what I mean...LOL).  I Christmas-tized the image by adding a Santa hat sticker and using Liquid Applique on the had and umbrella.

Other supplises used:

Red and White Cardstock
Christmas Embossing Folder
Heat Gun
Copic Markers
Tuxedo Black Momento Ink
Green Ink Pad
Sentiment - Clear Dollar Stamps "Deer Wishes"
Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles
Christmas Designer Paper
Stampin' Up! Punches - Modern Label and Word Window

Cigar Box 31 - More Cupcakes

Here is the second altered cigar box made with this paper.

Follow this link to matching Cigar Box 30.

Cigar Box 30 - Cupcakes

I bought enough of this line of paper to make 2 altered cigar boxes.  However, I didn't save the piece of paper that says who made this paper...oh well.

See matching Cigar Box 31.

Cigar Box 29 - Music

 Altered Cigar Box #29 is made with Moxie's "Musically Inclined" paper line.

I believe I picked up this paper in Gettysburg at Forevermore Scrapbooks during the 2012 Buggies & Buds Shop Hop.

Stampin' Up! Ornament Kits

Well, it only took me a year, but I finally finished!

Remember the SU Ornament Kits from last year?  Yeah...those are the ones :)

I made one for each of my co-workers.  I hope they like them :)
