This blog is dedicated to stamping, tips, musings, and whatever I want to post. I want my cards to make you smile. You may copy, post, pin, anything you want. To me this is a sharing hobby.

Beach Baby

All dies from AE. Sand is made from a cork sheet. Clothes are from a baby die set put on one of the girls and I switched her legs out with another girl.

Sunflower Mice

Background pieces are designer papers from my stash.

Die Storage

I am currently using this system for my dies and it works, except that occasionally a little piece falls out. My problem is getting it all put back in without mixing up sets.

Craft Organization Tip

This is where I keep my Big Shot Plus. It is an old hospital table on wheels and goes down very low or up to standing height. I put a wire shelf basket under and keep the garbage can right there. I have pulled a muscle in my shoulder so I recently lowered it to the height where I can use it sitting down in my office chair.

Just For You

Sentiment is part of an AE set that makes a little box, background is an "expensive" die and mice are from WYSE store on AE.  I make the clothes using an old denim fabric background stamp inked unevenly.

That Horrible Feeling

That horrible feeling when:
1-you drop a handful of very tiny dies on a floor already covered with scraps of paper.
2-you press "submit" at AliExpress when you suddenly realize you already have that die on the way and at a cheaper price to boot.
3-you grab a piece of white scrap paper to practice cut some dies and turn them over and realize it was a piece of designer paper that you had been saving for something special and you cannot get another piece.
4-When your alphabet set shows up with no "a".
5-When you have lost the pin for your Art Glitter Glue for the millionth time.
6-When your mailbox contains no little packages from AE.


Welcome Baby

All dies are from the inexpensive die site. Love my mommy and baby mouse and having fun doing baby cards with them. I don't have the search words for the background, but I did do it from blue fun foam.

Every die used on this card is an inexpensive die.

Paper Button Centers

Floral dies are inexpensive dies. Greetings is an expensive die. The button is an old punch but available as an inexpensive die. I prefer paper buttons to real ones for ease of mailing.



All dies used are inexpensive dies.

Mixing Old Dies With New

I don't have sources for most of these because they are old and I don't keep sources on things. The little girl is from AE, but I put a different head on her because the one that came was just creepy.

Opening Comment Section

I  have had the comment section closed for years due to a problem person. I am now opening them because it is a good way for me to stay in contact and answer questions. Play nice, ladies.

Ladies Just Receiving Mice---

My mouse clothes are definitely tight, but I don't have a problem with the suspenders because I always put the face over and it covers. Dress is not a problem because I prefer to layer like a little slip poking out. It is pretty easy to trim. To tell you the truth on the branded set the suspenders don't go to the top their either. They are not perfect but I am happy with them.

To Unbranded Dies Closed Group Members

If you want the mice grab them now, as I have just been informed that all mice will be deleted EVEN if branded. It also appears they are adding other companies to their "no-post list" one after the other.
