Prima Dolls, and Paper Dolls

Just sharing a few new stamps I recently purchased.

I'm hooked on Julie Nutting Prima doll stamps. 

and because a gal has to have accessories I got

two packages of hats. The witch hat I showed you yesterday

on the witch tag I made. 
As my Pinterest follows have seen I've also be into

paper dolls. Funny how when you get older you start to

rediscover the things you liked as a child. Well I least I've been doing that. 

I always loved paper dolls. This teddy bear set I got over the summer at a 

garage sale for a quarter. Haven't used it yet, but I'll get to it.
I didn't get to stamp yesterday. Spent some time cleaning the house. 
Lately I've been neglecting it. Today hubby is taking me out for dinner, 
and since the restaurant is close to Michael's, and Catan's I think I'll be
stopping there just to see if there is anything I need. I know I'm bad!!!

Halloween Witch Prima Doll Style

I made another tag yesterday afternoon, and now this

one is my favorite!

The doll is called Valentina. The 

cauldron I got from a swap I was in. Thought

it was the perfect size to use on this tag. 

I used a spider web embossing folder on the background layer. 

I sanded off the black to show the light violet color under it. 

Used coordination cardstock.

The designer paper for her hat, boots, and dress is

retired Halloween from SU. 

I'm getting addicted to these tags. I bought

some more Julie Nutting Prima dolls and I'll

share those on tomorrows blog post. 

Yesterday it rained all day. I could quote the Cat in Hat

all I did was sit, sit, sit! But I did get some crafting done.

Completed Family Art Journal

The art journal I started in September at a class the Brunswick

library offered is completed. Had fun making this and plan to make more. 

Skip even asked me to do one with his family. 

Inside cover. 

Pull out from pocket. 

I got to use my new Tim Hotlz photo wheel. 

Close up view. 

I made two one for the front an back of the pocket. 

I made a black bow to go with the bows that the women are

wearing on there clothing.

The oldest photo I found was of my grandmother, and her sister taken

in 1918.

Inside back cover. 

The next photos will be of the other side of the book. 

One of the neat things about my family.....

Three sisters married three brothers. Not at the same time

of course, but all within a few years of each other. Mom always told

me about her "double 1st cousins" 

Me and my brother got our musical talent from our Uncles. 

I added some of the school photos of my mom's cousins. 

I think the book came out really nice. Going to give it to my daughter either

for Christmas or her birthday in November. Nice keepsake.

3 Pocket Snowman

Hi everyone!
Here is a 3 pockets Snowman theme letter that
I made for a swap I joined. 
Used different stamped and embellishments to create it. 
My favorite panel is the last one. Love
the greeting "Snowmen fall from heaven unassembled" 
 These 3 pocket letters are so much fun! Quick to make to. 


I want to shout from the rooftops that the Cleveland Indians are 

going to the World Series. It's been 19 years since we have been there. 
Still waiting to see if we will go up against the Doggers, or the Cubs. 
Doesn't I've already put myself out there and predicted that the
Indians will win. Its our year (finally).

Parcel Post Julie Nutting Tag

I have to tell you I've been having a blast making these tags

using Julie Nutting Prima doll stamps. 

This one is my favorite (at least till I make another one)!

The background is Tim Holtz Wildflower designer vellum. 

When I saw the postal post script I knew I could use a stamp set

by Stampin'Up! to go with it. Off the top of my head I can't remember 

the name of this set. 

I cut the dress out twice. Glued one to the doll then 

popped part of the dress over it. Prisma pencils were

used to color the doll's hair. 

Used some lace and made a rosette for the base of the envelope I placed

at the top of the tag. 

Added some hearts, buttons, and pearls to 

complete the tag. 

This one will be in a swap that I joined on a FB group. 

It has been so warm here, but we did get rain in the afternoon. Still

a great day! 

The Tribe lost yesterday, but no worries as they still

have 3 more games to play and only have to win one of those. So I'm 

sure they will do it. GO TRIBE!!!!!

Flip Bags

I got some happy mail! 

My mailbox was like Christmas yesterday. 

This is the Halloween pocket bag that my partner

Natasha sent me. 

This was jammed packed with fun goodies! 

Look at the little bag on the lower right with the wod

eek on it. That is the size bag she used. Still can't believe

she got it all to fit in there! Love that little spider with

the eyelashes. 

I also received the Thanksgiving pocket bag from Kathleen. 

Lots of goodies in this bag too. 

The file folder she made was well done and full of Anna Griffin die cuts. 

Leave die cuts were in an flower topped envelope. 

And the leaves clips she made are so nice! 

Isn't the ribbon pretty! Love how she made a bobbin to hold it. 

Here is the front of the file folder. 

Both of the swaps are from Swappers Corner. Its a facebook group. 

Sorry I haven't posted for a few days. I've been 

keeping my kitty company. 

We had to take Cherokee to the vet on Thursday. She had to have surgery. 

She's and indoor outdoor cat, and while she was out last week she got bit

by either other cat, or something she was chasing. Anyway....the bite got infected,

and the vet had to remove the damaged tissue and sew her up. 

You can see the line of stitches. Vet also trimmed her claws, as he couldn't put

a cone on her neck as the wound was there. Thankfully she's been a good girl and hasn't

be scratching to much. 

She's on the mend, but she is not happy with her mother as I've

been giving her eyedroppers of medicine in the morning and evening and she

doesn't like it! 
I'll be going to the library today. We are sharing our art journals that we
have been making at class. I finished mine, and will be sharing it on the blog this week.

Swirling Leaves Pocket Letter

Thanksgiving pocket letter I made for a FB group I'm in. 

Since I wanted to use leaves I chose to make them

appear like they were swirling by turning them differently

in the 4 pockets. 

Bow was made with white seam binding that I dyed

with orange, and tea stain ink. 

Little rosette in the center was also sponged with tea ink. 

Back of pockets filled with goodies. 

Safe trip to Joe and Kat who are traveling home today. 

I'm going to get outside an try to soak up some sunshine as

its suppose to be sunny and in the 70's.

Great job Tribe!!!! They won the first game with the Blue Jays

yesterday. YAY.
