Shopping Spree!!!

So yesterday, I decided that I would head to Michael's and spurge a little on myself. I only had interest in getting a few stamp sets to create some samples for my sister. She's turning 16 in two weeks and is having a small get together with her friends and wants me to create not only her cards, but of course, her cake as well!! But as much as i love my sister, she is incredibly picky and specific about what she wants. SOO...I went out and headed straight to the scrapbooking section. I was there for a good hour (as I usually am) first just browsing, and than putting stuff that I spotted before in my cart. When I left there I had the following to go home and play with...
*A Crop a Dile (yes i know your thinking, what scrapper doesnt have one right from the beginning!)
*7 Stamp Sets
*A heat gun (yes, i have never had one before so I was excited to get home and use it
*Versamark and embossing powder
*A ribbon punch

Im honestly like a kid in a candy store when im in Michael's, AC Moore, or Joann's!!! Any who, i spent most of last night and this morning embossing and creating 2 cards for my sister to "approve". Hahahaha.

So I'll show you something else that i've recently created.

This idea is not mine, although its so clever I wish i had thought of it!! This idea is from Angie at Chic n Scratch . Like I mentioned before with one of her other ideas that i re-created, I absolutely LOVE all the stuff Angie makes and if you havent checked her out yet, you definitely need to. She is FABULOUS with stamping and paper goodies :) For the cutouts, I used my Cricut Stretch your Imagination and DoodleCharm Cartridges. The Spring box was using the measurements that Angie offers, however I have (and use a ton) of the Large notecards so I adjusted the measurements to fit the box(summer box). And than one of my good friends from work, Jenn, saw them and wanted one for her desk for her smaller notecards. She is a college student and uses them like crazy to study so I made her one to fit the 3x5 notecards. She was so excited about it that I made her a little carrying case to put her notecards in her bookbag to take along and study.....she absolutely LOVED it! :)

And thats it for tonight! I've been missing my husband like crazy lately so im going to get back to creating my sister's invitations and keep busy :)
