Sail Boat Baby Shower

A while ago someone contacted me about making some sail boat baby shower invitations. But she was in a rush for them and ended up running out of time for shipping and production of 30 baby shower invitations. However, I thought this sweet little sail boat card came out adorable. 


It's been quite some time since I made this so I don't remember the punches used, but the inspiration for the sail boat came from Mary Fish.


I just thought I would share this cute card instead of keeping the pictures hidden on my hard drive.

Hideaway Cupcake Container and Lid

This little ‘Hideaway’ Cupcake Container is a festive way to wrap a birthday gift for someone special. Or, how about just filling it with some yummy little treats? Whatever you choose to put inside, the recipient will surely be delighted with the container. The quick and clean card, with the coordinating envelope, will be sure to please as well!


This adorable project was designed by Julie! If you have a chance please head on over to Craft Project Central and leave Julie a comment on her project!

Floral Wall Art

For a simple gift I re-purposed this four panel frame by popping in some pieces of Whisper White card stock that I stamped with images from Peaceful Petals and Sweetbriar Rose in Momento Ink. Then I simple colored in the images with a variety of Blendabilites markers. 


  • Stamps: Peaceful Petals, Sweetbrier Rose, Everything Eleanor, Perfect Pennants
  • Ink: Momento Black, Versamark
  • Blendabilites Markers: Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Wisteria Wonder, Old Olive
  • Accessories: Iridescent Ice embossing powder, Gold embossing powder, uni-ball Signo Gel Pen, Rhinestones



On one panel I added this fabulous greeting from Perfect Pennants in gold embossing powder. Each panel was stamped with the large beautiful swirl from Everything Eleanor in Versamark ink and embossined in Irridescent Ice embossing powder.


In the Sweetbriar Rose flower centers I added some white dots with my uni-ball Signo Gel Pen.


This was such a fun and simple project. I just taped the card stock to the backside of the mat and popped it into the frame and it was done! Did I mention I just LOVE the new Blendabilities markers???

What have you been using your new Blendabilites on?
