Belated Birthday Vase

Belated Birthday

With my son graduating from high school in June I am flooded with his childhood memories and this card brings back one in particular.

How can vases with flowers remind me of my son’s childhood?  Here’s the story…

When he was 7 years old he went with me to the grocery store with me and while we were shopping he asked me if he could go get something.  He said it was right around the corner and begged to be right back.

He was gone for one minute and as he ran up to me I noticed he was hiding something behind his back.  With a big cheesy grin on his face he said the following as he thrust forward a bouquet of flowers…

“Mom, if I had a job this is what I would buy you.”  I had instant tears in my eyes because of his thoughtful nature.  So, I bought them for him and he gave them to me when we got home.

With this sweet story in mind please view the video at the bottom of this post.

Lesson Learned:  Stamp images like this vase stamp on your favorite designer series paper, snip each vase just slightly inside the lines and glue the cut out vase to the main image.  It will surely add a whole new visual to the image itself.

A MUST SEE!

I’ve been a mom for 19 years and I know the requirements firsthand.  In turn, my mom definitely has the world’s toughest job too!  I have already started making her Mother’s Day gift… made of paper of course! =)

Please leave a comment below… tell me what you think of the video?

The whole purpose of this blog is to share my simple handmade cards with as many people as possible and I can’t do it without your help, so go on and share.

If you could pass post this post along to at least one friend
who you know has the world’s toughest job, I will be grateful!

Word for Word Translations are Funny

Spanish MPP

That’s Great… Enjoy… This Day – This is how it reads literally translated.  No wonder some people don’t understand me… LOL.   I sometimes feel as if some people may not understand the way I explain things.

I’m just joking, but seriously, there are times when I have to think things through a little more than the average person because I also think in Spanish as I write in English.  I know some of you are knodding yes… because you know it’s true.

Eso es genial … Disfrute … Este Día – Así es como se lee literalmente traducido.  Con razon algunas personas no me entienden… JAJAJA.  A veces me siento como si algunas personas no pueden entender la forma como yo explico las cosas.

Sólo estoy bromeando, pero en serio, hay momentos en que tengo que pensar las cosas un poco más que la persona promedio porque también pienso en español, mientras escribo en Inglés.  Sé que algunos de ustedes dicen sí…porque sabes que es verdad.

Spanish MPP2

Lesson Learned: This lesson is an old one you’ve heard over and over again.  Yet I will continue to preach it… why?  Because it’s true!  THERE ARE NO MISTAKES IN STAMPING.  If you make a mistake, it can be covered up with an embellishment or do what I did here and turn the paper to the other side… =)  Did you see how easy that was?

 Lección Aprendida: Esta lección es una vieja que has escuchado una y otra vez. Sin embargo, lo voy a seguir repitiendo… ¿por qué?  Porque es la verdad! NO HAY ERRORES EN ESTAMPADO.  Porque es la verdad! Si comete un error,  puede ser cubierto con un elemento decorativo o de vuelta al papel para el otro lado. =)   ¿Viste que fácil fue?

NEW PRODUCT COMING SOON!

Birthdays – Who Keeps Track?

Birthday

I haven’t used the Birthday Basics designer series paper in some time now and I figured I should break out with it because I have some catching up to do with a few birthday cards.  I lost track of the dates.

Click here to view all the cards I’ve made with this paper.  There are kids cards and masculine cards in there that you can copy and share with all your friends.

Birthday

Lesson Learned:  Card making has taught me that there are three rules we can follow when we are making cards.  It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or advanced card maker either.  The three rules are:

  1. Color (use your color coach to help if you are like me with no sense of color-LOL)
  2. Shape (use any shape – circles, squares, or any framelit)
  3. Texture (embossing folders are perfect)

What is your go to designer series paper?  Leave a comment below with your favorite paper regardless of what brand you use.

If you could pass this post along to at least one friend that would be great!
