Happy Birthday in PINK!

Hi there!
How's your day been? Mine has been super busy and I'm happy to say that I got several things knocked off of my "to-do" list! However, I think I may have added as many (or more) things back to that stinkin' list that really need to be completed in the next few days :(

But, for now at least, the list is on hold and I've got my Dr. Pepper and M&Ms right beside me!  I also have a sweet birthday card to share with you....

I used several goodies from The Stamps of Life for this card:

I really love the fun font Stephanie used on the Happy Birthday Die set ♥

Thanks so much for stopping by! As always, I appreciate your visits and sweet comments.  Have a good one and I'll be seeing you soon....

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380!
So, how's your day going for ya?  Mine is going to be another one of those busy, busy, busy days so this is going to be one of those short and sweet posts!  I've got a really fast and easy Halloween card to share with you today, so here we go.....

Not only was this one fast and easy to put together - I think it's really kinda cute!

I started with a solid white mat and inked it up using the Colorbox Chevron Stencil designed by Stephanie of The Stamps of Life.

I added a fun purple tulle bow at the top of my card - sentiment is from the crazy4daisies stamp set.

And, last but not least, those yummy little candy corn candies are from the cute, cute, cute candycorn2cut stamp and die set.

Okay, short and sweet as promised!
Have a wonderful day and I'll be seeing you soon...

You are my Sunshine

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope you've had a wonderful Monday. It has been a very long Monday for me and I really should be calling it a day.  But, I decided to play with some new stamps rather than go to bed - it's been fun, but I'm pretty sure I will be sorry when that alarm goes off bright and early in the morning!

A couple of months ago, I joined the Unity Kit of the Month Club and tonight I decided to finally pull out my stamps and play a bit.  I have really been loving all the projects I've seen lately created with watercolors.  And, I really wanted to give it a did.  And...after I went straight into the trash can....sigh.  Maybe I'll give it another try sometime soon, but after the day I've had I just did not have the patience to deal with a new technique.

So, I pulled out my Copic markers and while I'm not thrilled with my efforts, it's definitely better than the water-colored version.....

The images and sentiment are from the July 2014 Unity Kit of the Month:
Beautiful - Inside and Out

This really is a beautiful stamp set and it puts me in the mood for fall. I need to give it another try when it's NOT Monday and I'm NOT so tired!

I'm going to wrap this up for now because in just a few minutes it won't be Monday anymore :(
Have a wonderful Tuesday and I'll see ya soon...

Hi there and happy Saturday to you!
I hope you are having a great weekend and are able to fit in some time to do something you love.  We are having a good day at my house - spent the morning helping my grandson, Blake complete his first Kindergarten homework project and going for a swim later this afternoon.

While Blake is enjoying some Lego time, I thought I would get a post up and running.
So, here we go....

These cute candles are from The Stamps of Life.  I used the candles4birthday and morecandles2stamp stamp sets along with the Candle Club Die Set.

I really love the fun chevron pattern stamp!

This is one of those bright, happy cards that just makes me smile!

That about wraps up today's post, but before I go I have to share this cute picture of Blake with his completed "homework".....

His homework was to decorate the letter 'A' to go along with the story "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom".
Didn't he do a great job? 

Okay, we are headed to the pool!  Have a great weekend and I'll see ya soon....

Birthday Altered Tins

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope your week is going well for you. We are rolling right along my house - getting into the back-to-school groove!  It's been a while and I'm still adjusting to having a 5 year old in the house full time, but we are getting our routine down and each day gets a little easier.

Stephanie over at The Stamps of Life released 4 new exclusive die sets today and I thought I would share a project I created with the new Happy Birthday Word Dies....

I started with these cute little metal tins. They are about the size of an Altoids Mint tin.  I've had them stashed away in a drawer for a long time and I don't remember where I purchased them.  Sure wish I could remember because I think they turned out really cute!

I covered each tin in patterned paper, one appropriate for a girl and one for a boy.  I used the "celebrate" sentiment and banner die from the Sizzix Framelits Birthday Cake Set on the inside of each tin.  A bit of ribbon wrapped around the bottom of each tin adds to the festive look.

Instead of candy or gum, gift cards and cash fit in these fun little tins quite nicely!

These were so quick and easy to put together and if I can ever remember where I found these little tins, I plan to purchase more to keep on hand!

Okay, that's it for me today.  If you come across these tins, please drop me a line and let me know where you found them!  Have a great day and I'll be back soon.....
