I Scream, You Scream....

Hey, this is Jan taking time away from the scorching Arizona heat to show you my latest!
I LOVE the Sassafras paper line, all of it! But this Me Likey collection I received from Liz at has to be my favorite! The bright colors and cute images...they are to die for!
I made this mini entirely from the collection to create a summer album about my grandson. This is the little guy who referred to Bubble Gum ice cream as "Guggle Bum" for a long time. I always think of him when I eat ice cream! The best memories are of those of summer and the special treats that come with it!
So get out your primary color buttons and ribbons, and your color palette is set! And the "coloring pages" in the collection are perfect for letting your child personalize their pages!!
This is an album or page you can whip together in an hour. How easy is that?Simple supplies used: Sassafras Me Likey paper collection; Primary buttons from JoAnn's; ribbons from American Crafts and my own scrap stash; Spellbinders, Labels Four for cover title, Candy Cane Stickles for cupcake on back cover.
You can purchase all of these at the Thoughts2paper store and have your album done in no time!
Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Goodtimes Great!

I love the stamps in the "Because of You" Unity Stamp kit! I knew I wanted to use them on my very next card! Thanks, Liz, at!
I used: Mama's Curtain's, 29th Street Market paper, Unity Stamps, Because of You; Bazzill paper flowers, Spellbinder Nestibilities, Labels Four, and stock ribbon from JoAnn's. The flower is spritzed with "homemade" mist made from Ranger ink, Tumbles Glass. The Helmar's 450 adhesive makes attaching thick ribbon a breeze!

July 4th BBQ Invitation

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!

I made this invitation using one of Dustin Pike's cute little Doodle Dragons from his website,! I can't get enough of these darling little guys!

I used my Copic markers and Creative Imaginations stickers to make these invitations quick and easy!!! Popping the dragon up with 3D foam made it even cuter!

This card is also entered in the bi-weekly scrap challenge over at Wish me luck!

Thoughts2Paper Projects!

Talk about a fun project! Decorating this Dress Card is like playing paper dolls again! I went with the satin fabric for the skirt, and then made it formal with the velvet ribbon and rose! What young lady wouldn't love this card?
Supplies: Accucut Die Cut; Fabric, JoAnns; Ofray Ribbon Rose; Label by Anna Griffin; Bazill cardstock. If your cut edges of fabric tend to fray, my friend, Delphina, showed me that heating it with a flame will melt and bind the edge! Cool, eh? Be careful, satin burns quickly! LOL!

A Birthday Card for HIM!

With all the great products offered over at, I just can't resist tearing into it and letting my imagination run wild. There are never enough masculine birthday cards out there, but the cake die cut lends itself to almost ANY one's celebration!
