Angel Company Circle

This last Sunday we had yet ANOTHER great circle with some amazing ladies. We always have so much fun at our circles with yummie desserts and lots of laughs. Anita was the host this time and this was her gift for hosting the party. The tag was done with justdream stamp set that I absolutely LOVE!!!

Here are the projects that we did. All the projects were made with poprocks paper collection. The popsicle we made using an'udder birthday stamp set. I was so happy with how big the scrap-o-dex was and how fun it's going to be to alter the whole thing! The one that we altered we used the justanote stamp set and the new card stock strips.

and last but not least this cute little simple candy purse with sour skittles in it.
If you have any questions about any of these projects please ask away!

Last Thursday Patricia came over so we can do our weekly crafts..this time she came a lot earlier and we were able to work a lot longer and do a lot more projects together. We had such a wonderful day and made some SUPER cute things.

We made this super cute summer card from a new Close to My Heart stamp set called Do Nothing that I purchased a week or so ago. If you need a CTMH demonstrator contact Anna. Here is the link to her blog She just started out not to long ago and is a GREAT demonstrator.

Hello :)

Last Thursday Patricia came over to do some more stamping! I had came across a thread on Splitcoast to a pattern to make cupcake cards! So we decided to try it out..we didn't finish them on Thrusday because my embossing gun bit the dust haha! So we got to finish them on Sunday. If you want to make a cupcake card the pattern is here on Linsey's blog she also has a pattern to ice cream cones that are adorable!!! I can't wait to try them out also. Thank you Linsey to your awesome patterns!

My cupcake is the pink one and Patricia's is the blue one..I just LOVE the way hers came out.

Since we were unable to finish the cupcakes on Thursday we decided to make another card and Patricia brought a couple of her stamp sets so we used one of her sets and here is the card we made.

PS: sorry about the horrible pics that I took for this post my scanner works when it wants to and I didn't feel like waiting for it to work haha!
