Flirty Aprons

Oh my gosh, How cute are these?! They are called Flirty Aprons. I found my over to Oops, I Craft My Pants via Sabriena Satchwell at Little Miss Scrapalicious and I am so glad I did. These aprons are too stinkin' cute! I have got to get a matching pair for my daughter and me. She loves to be in the kitchen with me no matter what I am doing. They have men's and children's aprons as well as women's. You have got to go check out the wonderful aprons.

Thanks for visiting and see you next time.

Blue Bell and PPA

This week Pals Paper Arts is having a Summer theme challenge. If ice cream doesn't scream summer to you, I don't know what does. For those of you who are unlucky to not know what Blue Bell Ice Cream is, it is the "Best Ice Cream in the Country." Blue Bell is a local Texas favorite and not available everywhere. I would recommend that if you ever get a chance to come visit us down here in Texas, you try it and you will agree.

Now on to the 6x6 scrapbook page. I used Crumb Cake as the base and layered a piece of DSP from the soon retiring Tea Party set. I then layered a piece of Chocolate Chip and another piece of Tea Party DSP. The two photos are each matted with the soon retiring Gable Green, as was the top note in Very Vanilla. The ice cream cones are from the Sweet Scoops set available in the Summer Mini Catalog. The bases are stamped in soon retiring Close to Cocoa. The ice cream is stamped to look like Mint Chocolate Chip, Strawberry and Cookies and Cream.

King of the Grill

Just in time for Father's Day and Summer BBQs! I love this set! It is called "King of the Grill" and it is from Stampin' Up!'s Summer Mini catalog.

For this card, I used the woodgrain background stamp inked with Chocolate Chip on a piece of Kraft card stock for the base. I then stamped the "King" in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla and colored him with a few new colors (returning in-colors). I used Pacific Point for his shirt, Riding Hood Red for his apron and hat, Wild Wasabi for his tools and Crumb Cake (Kraft) for his pants. I didn't want to color the grill because I wanted the focus to be on the "King". He is backed up by a piece of To the Nines DSP. The sentiments are stamped in Riding Hood Red on Very Vanilla and punched out with the Word Window punch.
