Tropical Treat

How cute are these? I wish so badly that I didn't have to give them away! I just loved how they turned out! This ridiculously cute box is one of the great tutorials that you can purchase from Becky over at Inking Idaho! These 2 boxes were early bird prizes for an activity that was for the women at my church! We are joining together to read the Book of Mormon and I thought it would be darling to put a mini Book of Mormon in here. The girls that won can keep it for themselves to read or give it to a friend with their testimony on the inside!! The dimensions in the tutorial worked perfectly to fit the book!! I added some york peppermint patties, kisses and yummy ghirardelli chocolate on the sides. They were a big hit with the gals! The only complaint was that there weren't more to go around!

welcome vinyl

So I am pretty much copying this one from the Stampin' Up! catalog! {shhh don't tell} I actually would have ordered the one from Stampin' Up! but they didn't have the size I needed and I didn't like one of the phrases on it. What's a girl to do???...well make my own of course! I just chose all different fonts and played with the sizes and thicknesses. I like how it turned out! It looks really cool above this mirror in my entryway. I love the collage of words! You could do this with so many different things, words, rooms, occasions...the possibilities are endless!! If you are interested in some cool word collages for your walls shoot me an email! {}
thanks for coming by...have a wonderfully vinylicious Monday!!!
chat at ya later!
what's in it?...
vinyl...brown (oracal)...I like to call it chocolate
size...8 1/2 in. x 35 in.
fonts...can't remember all of them {oops}
hours of sleep lost playing with words and getting them in just the right spot...2 or 3 AND lots of numbness in my mouse-clicking hand from being on the computer too long!
what can I say...I am a committed girl!

family vinyl

I have been on the hunt for awhile now for an idea that I just loved for a Fullmer Family vinyl. I finally found a few ideas that I liked and from that I created this...I just adore the way it turned out! I have had the picture frame for a few years now {yes I still need to add a few pics! I got so used to seeing those white spaces I sorta forgot they needed to be filled} and I have wanted the vinyl above to finish off the wall. I love when something turns out even better than you hoped for!!! I had my doubts as I was putting it up as to whether or not I was going to like it! Now I love it so much I feel like all my vinyl needs that 2 tone/layered look!! :) If you are interested in having your own "family vinyl" email me or call me and I will be happy to quote you a price.

summer blocks

Nothing too fancy, just some summer blocks that I have been wanting to make. I had some wood laying around {these are 2x4 cut at various sizes} and figured it may as well be something cute in my house instead of ugly in my garage! I love this summery paper from Stampin' Up! It's in the Summer Mini catalog right now. It's called Island Oasis. I sanded the edges and made it look a little worn. I used my silhouette to cut out the vinyl letters. {it's chocolate brown} I added 3 little vinyl flowers with brads in the middle. I think it's going to look great on my shelf. Even if summer is half over!
Thanks for coming by! Don't forget to check the post below for some great stamp sets and ink pads I am selling!
chat at ya later!!
