Sorry to hear you're in a jam

Hello everyone and welcome to Studio 5380!
I hope this new week is off to a great start for you.  My week is going to be pretty busy, my Mama is coming for a visit...yay! And, we have lots of catching up to do. So, I'll be popping in here and making visits to all of your wonderful blogs as I can.  If you don't see or hear from me for a few days, don't give up on me!

So, today's post is going to be short and sweet as I MUST get this house somewhat cleaned up before my Mama pulls into the driveway.  I've got another cutie from this month's stamp release by The Stamps of Life....


Anybody remember this old paper stack?
While searching for some purple prints, I came across an older stack on the bottom of my paper pile...er....collection!  These are from the "Latte Stack" by DCWV and I think they are just perfect for this card!  I bet I've had this stack for 3 years or more.


Stamps of Life products:
pb&j2enjoy stamp set
morejb&j2stamp stamp set
pb&jdies (for the grapes)


Okay, I'm off to tackle this house - wish me luck!
Have a wonderful day and I'll be seeing you soon....

Thanks a bunch!

Hello everyone and happy Saturday to you!
I hope you are having a great weekend. It's been cold and wet here today after a rainy, rainy Friday.  I'm not sure my yard will ever dry out!  I had planned on a bit of yard work today, but it's much too wet. So...I stayed inside and played around with my Copic Markers instead - much more fun!

My sweet (and very talented) friend, Ann who owns and operates SVG Cutting Files  also has a digital stamp blog.  Her images are super cute and are available at Digi My World.  I decided to work with one of these cuties today while practicing my Copic skills. And, here's my finished card....


Okay, so I still have lots of room for improvement with my coloring skills.  But, each time I complete a project I find myself more comfortable with my markers (I don't think I'm holding my breath as much...lol).  And I do see a bit of improvement with each new project.

This sweet image is called Flowerbox Girl and I think she is sweet as can be!
I used some pretty papers from Simple Stories and added a bit of machine stitching around the edges.  The sweet sentiment is from the Smell The Flowers stamp set by Jaded Blossom.


My sentiment is stamped onto a banner created with the Mini Tag Dies set also by Jaded Blossom. The pretty Crinkle Ribbon is from My Craft Spot.

Okay, that's it for me today. I need to get up and get busy around this house.  Laundry is waiting and I can't use the weather as an excuse on that chore!  Have a great weekend and I'll be seeing you soon...

You're such a nut!

Hello everyone - thanks so much for stopping by today!
I've got a super fun, super easy, super yummy treat to share with you today....


I came across this cute little candy bar box and wrapper in the Silhouette Online Store awhile back. I purchased the file and there it sat in my Library of cutting files. Then....Stephanie from The Stamps of Life came out with the awesome pb&j2enjoy and morepb&j2stamp stamp sets and right away I remembered that fun little candy bar box!


I love the fun sentiment - I mean, seriously, how cute is that?
I stamped the peanuts all over the outer candy bar wrapper and colored them with my Copic Markers.


The cutting file did not include the little band around the box.  I just cut a strip of cardstock about and 1.5 inch wide and taped the ends loosely so that it would slide easily on and off the box.

And that's it - simple, fast and oh so yummy!
Thanks again for stopping by today - I always appreciate your visits and sweet comments! Have a great day and I'll be seeing you soon...

SVG Cutting Files Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to Studio 5380.
I can't believe that it is the middle of April already - this month is just flying by!  The 15th of each month brings a new Challenge from SVG Cutting Files and I've got a sweet project to share with you today.  This month's challenge is all about the special ladies in your life - it can be for your Mom, sister, grandmother, etc.  My project is for a sweet young lady who has a birthday in the near future....


I just love this fun Nugget Easel Drawer Box created by Ann!  It is so cute, so easy to put together and the possibilities are endless.  This file is one I will use again and again.

I also used the cutie pie Cupcake Girl to decorate the easel portion of my box - isn't she just the sweetest?  I gave her a Peachy face using the Sweet & Innocent Face Assortment Stamp Set.


My Happy Birthday sentiment is from the So Many Birthdays stamp set by Jaded Blossom.  I stamped it onto that cute little ticket which was created with the Jaded Blossom Ticket Book Die.

The wrappers for my Hershey Nuggets were created with the Jaded Blossom Candy Wrap Dies.


And there you go!
Be sure to stop by the SVG Cutting Files Blog to see what the other Designers have in store for you.  There are some amazing projects and you don't want to miss any of them!  I hope you will play along with this fun challenge - I look forward to seeing what you create.

Have a wonderful day and I'll be seeing you soon...

My Craft Spot Challenge #133

Hello everyone and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope you had a great weekend and are ready for another Monday!  Those Mondays sure do roll around fast, don't they?  Well, let's get this one off to a creative start with a new challenge from My Craft Spot.  This week's challenge is all about Tags and Banners.....


For this fun card I started with the Simple Label Card Base from SVG Cutting Files. That cute little driver is from the Go Kart Racers set also available from SVG Cutting Files.

I created my fun finish line banner with the Tiny Banners & Toppers Metal Die Set from My Craft Spot.  I love this die set - take a look at all the options available in this one set....


The combinations are just endless - this set is a "must have" in my opinion!



I added a sweet sentiment from the MCS stamp set Tiny Tags 3 to the license plate on the front of the Go Kart.  I love the shine from the metallic paper!

And, of course, I had to decorate the inside as well...


The racing lights are part of the Go Kart Racers cutting file and the sentiment is from the My Craft Spot  Big Sentiments 2 stamp set.

Okay, that's my project for this week's challenge!  I hope you will drop by the My Craft Spot Blog to take a look at what the other Designers have in store for you.  I also look forward to seeing your creations linked up with us this week!

Have a wonderfully creative day and I'll be seeing you soon...
