Wedding Invitation

Here's the invitation I made for my daughter's upcoming wedding celebration. It was pretty simple -- just 3 layers. First I cut Cranberry Crisp card stock (SU) to 5-1/2" x 4-1/4", and black card stock to 5-1/8" x 3-7/8". I printed the monogram and text on heavy white paper, and trimmed them down to 5" x 3-3/4". I adhered the invitation to the black card stock, then wrapped the ribbons around before adhering the unit to the Cranberry Crisp. Fast and easy -- I only had to make 100, and they went more quickly than I really expected. It gives me hope that I can actually make 100 swaps for SU Convention!!!!

Pup cake

This is too cute for words -- I just had to share it. A co-worker gave me this today. It's made of two cupcakes (and an AWFUL lot of frosting!). The picture doesn't do the little guy justice.

More chocolate...

Have I mentioned that my daughter is getting married in June? I'm really excited, and I keep trying out ideas for favors, etc. (I've already made the invitations and shipped them off to her.)

This is a basic 3-nugget box. The labels were pretty simple - I just stamped on adhesive address labels and wrapped them around the nuggets. I used gold gel pen to embellish the stamping, but it looks yellow in the photograph. I couldn't decide WHICH of the Stampin' Up Mini-Mates stamps I wanted to use, so I made several. If I decide I can actually make 100 of these, I'll let DD decide which ones she wants included.

Chocolate Rules!

I've been pretty busy at my "day" job lately, so I haven't posted much, but last night I ran across a discussion of "The Ten Rules of Chocolate" on the SU Demo site. I immediately told my husband I needed candy bars to make CHOCOLATE BOOKS! I ultimately made 20 of these goodies and took them along for everyone at the meeting scheduled for today. It was lots of fun, everyone loved them, AND I was able to use up some old patterned paper...a win-win situation. (And my DH got chocolate for dessert!)

These are made from 6x6 squares. There's a full-sized Hershey bar under the page on the right -- I think the original one I CASE'd had two bars, one on each side, but my little book didn't want to close with two. If you'd like the "rules," drop me an email at
