Cute Bow...

Natalie is a week old today, so mommy thought she should get out of PJ's and put on an outfit.
She couldn't wait to use the hair bows.
Natalie decided she would hold still for two seconds and be awake.
This picture will be going into the scrapbook.
I guess I better get started on that!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Molly Makes A Detour...

The image is by Stamping Bella.
There are so many wonderful images in my box to choose from that is was hard to decide this month.
But I haven't used any of these yet, so they won.
The fun paper is Imaginisce - Sole Sisters.
It's really fun with purses, shoes and girlie stuff.

The image is pretty big at 4.25" x 2.75"
It also come with the sentiment.
The stamp is Un-Mounted grey rubber, but I have included the EZ Mount in your kit.
So if you haven't picked that up yet don't forget to get one.

They are only available while supplies last.

Fun Ways to Use Rubber Stamps

Rubber stamps are the perfect tool for enhancing your artwork. They are popular for their versatility and their ability to be used nearly anywhere. Stamps can also be embellished in a number of ways. Most art suppliers offer a wide variety of rubber stamps of different shapes and sizes with handy shapes, text, and images. If you’re an art student or aspiring artist, consider art college as a way to channel your creative focus and make a career out of your passion.


Stamps are commonly used to enrich birthday cards, graduation cards, wedding cards, anniversary cards, get well cards, and thank you cards. Specialized stamps are always around for any and all of the holidays, and they’re not limited to Christmas and Valentine’s Day—surprise your friends and loved ones with stamped cards for Thanksgiving, Easter, the fourth of July, or Hanukah.
Whenever you use rubber stamps, remember to use a hard, flat, stable surface like a table. Be sure to remove dust and particles off of the rubber with a sponge or stamp cleaner to ensure a clean mark. Also, when you stamp, use your fingers to apply firm, even pressure to the stamp without rocking it in order to avoid a blurry image, and make sure your stamp is well inked!


Use rubber stamps in your scrapbook! Most professional scrapbook makers use rubber stamps for their creations, and it’s easy to see why. There will always be a stamp related to the subject on a page, or even an aspect of the topic. You can even get stamps with days and months to commemorate the dates of your memories instead of writing them in. Rubber stamps will provide a delightful contrast to photographs, cutouts, and the other media on the page.
You can also switch things up and make a pattern by forming a series of stamps on a page (this works for cards, too).

Rubber Stamp Ideas

The site gives clear directions and helpful guidelines for each of the listed techniques.

Balloon Kaylee...

I was checking to see how many stamps I had in the store yesterday so I could order a spinning rack and came across this cute Balloon Kaylee stamp by Some Odd Girl.
I was like why is this cutie still here?
So I grabbed them off the hanger and made a card kit out of her.
The stamp set has Balloon Kaylee & the Happy Birthday Sentiment.
Didn't she turn out CUTE!

The beautiful paper is Echo Park This & That Graceful Collection.
I picked the diamond paper out before I colored my image so I could match my colors to the paper.
Picking a piece of paper first makes the coloring easier for me.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a Great Day!
