Want to sing anyone?

I love to sing don't you? I just love music in general. This is, I know a winter scene. But I don't think of it that way. I just see the kids singing and having a good time. It reminds me of being in school and being in chorus.

I just love this stamp and don't you? It can be found at Stamp N Plus Scrap N. If you want to go right to it click here. If this section you will find a ton more of fun stamps. Stamp N Plus Scrap N has a wide variety of stamps for every personality.

I stamped this image on vellum and colored the back side with Stampin Up markers. I then mounted the vellum onto a coordinating orange and then onto the background paper. I added a few eyelets and a ribbon to finish it off.

As always I love to hear from you, so please leave a comment as to what you think. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Heritage always fun....


Heritage, what is yours? I have a ton of different parts to my heritage. They even have a show on TV that shows celebrities finding theirs. Here is a heritage that I love to color.

This is a great stamp from Stamp N Plus Scrap N.

You will find it in the Heritage Collection. Dexter Griffin is the designer of the collection.

This stamp is called Block Print Frame w/Image. I used the large size you will see that you can get this in several sizes. What I like about this is no one colors it the same way. Every time you see this stamp used it is in a different way.

I have noticed that the blog team has done a few in the Heritage Collection. So don't forget to go check out what the Stamp N Plus Scrap N Blog Team has come up with.

As always I love to hear from you so feel free to leave your comments.

Thanks you in Patti's Kids

Don't you just love spring and flowers? I do.....I just can't think about anything else right now. I know I should be doing some other cards for challenges but just can't. I don't want to see anything to do with winter. I just love the Patti's Kids line that you can find from Stamp N Plus Scrap N.

This stamp is called Amy & Rascal. There is a medium and large version of this. This is in the large one.

I colored Amy & Rascal with Copic markers and then cut her out. I added a few roses in a matching color and the card was finished.


I hope that you all are enjoying your spring. I am hoping to get more and more cards done in the next few weeks.

As always I love to hear from you so please, leave a message. Feel free to share my blog with your friends.

Friends............

I was thinking of a really good friend of mine today. And how much I miss her. We used to get together all the time to scrapbook, but she moved to Arizona several years ago. I was also thinking that her daughter Gianna would be at the age that she would love to make cards. I really think that she would love this little guy. So this card is for Evelyn and Gianna!



I love browns (who Knew). So most of this card is in shades of brown to keep it simple and clean. I even used copper wire as an accent. I colored him with Copic markers and added a brad that says friends. The brad is close to the color of the roses.



This stamp is from Stamp N Plus Scrap N. They have so many varieties of stamps there. I am sure that you will find something that you just need to have. I have been on the design team for almost a year now. Stamp N Plus Scrap N just started a blog so stop on by and meet the blog team. Come back and visit the blog as there are new cards added daily. You won't want to miss when they introduce the rest of the design team.

Only a Dreamer...

Today is a day for day dreams. I have some and I hope that they come true. I created this card with a cute stamps from Stamp N Plus Scrap N.

She can be found in the Fantasy section or just click here for a fast link to her.

I stamped her with black ink and then colored her in with chalk. What you say, that doesn't' look like chalk. Well it is chalk mixed with paint to create a look of gloss. All I had to do was take a little bit of the colored that I wanted, put it onto a acrylic block and mix with white glossy paint. and wallah I was ready to color my image. I like to use an acrylic block for my paint pallet as it just wipes clean with a baby wipe.

Stamp N Plus Scrap N has the best chalks that I have ever worked with. LuAnn has come up with a powdered chalk called Chalk-Ah-Lot. There are so many ways to use these chalks with paint, glue, mixed with bubbles and more. They are so easy to use that you will never go back to the cake ones that you have to scratch at. There is a huge variety of colors that include fluorescent and metallic.

Now back to what I did with the rest of the card. I layered her on card stock with brads and added a flower and some beads. I like this clean and simple look.

Yes Only a Dreamer... Can Make Dreams Come True....

Cup of tea anyone.......

Today is a overcast day, not much sun. On days like this I could drink pots and pots of coffee. Instead, today I had coffee in the morning and switched to tea this afternoon. Oh, the hubby bought me some good tea.


I made this card a while back but it is just too cute not to post here. I loved the rick rak on this card, it just added that needed touch.


This stamp is one one Patti's Kids from Stamp N

Calla Lillies

Spring is here and I am so excited. I came home from Florida to see more of my flowers coming up in the yard. The tulips should be opening up this week. Wow is that early. I love flowers and saw so many beautiful flowers while in Florida. So flowers is the inspiration for this card.

Here is a simple but fun card. I used the same stamp to make the background as the main image. I used chalk to color the flowers and leaves.

As always I love to hear from you, so feel free to leave a message or even a question.

Goodbye Duluth...Hello Florida!




Tammy and Kathy in photo one. Russel and Mike in photo two. All for of us in the third photo. I am in the white and Mike in the brown. More fun photos to come.


As promised, I would write a little about my vacation. Also add a have a few photos of the fun I had. We decided to stay in Cocoa Beach for four nights. We had a great place on the Ocean. Our room was a bit large for just the two of us. It included 2 bedrooms, living room, dining room and full kitchen. Even the walk in closets in the bedrooms were huge. Our first day we walk to the Cocoa Beach Pier. It has lots of shopping and restaurants to choose from. I enjoyed peel and eat shrimp on the Ocean, wow! After our dinner at O Shucks, we moved onto the beach to walk back to the hotel. While walking we met a couple that we hung out with for a few days. I am very out going, so I challenged this woman to a race on the beach and we became friends. Kathy and Russel invited us to their favorite beach bar. The Florida hospitality was amazing. They purchased our apps and drinks, refusing us to help pay for anything. It was such a great time. We had to leave as it was getting dark and we still had a ways to walk to get to our hotel. While walking on the beach somehow we walked almost 2 miles past our hotel and had to walk it back on the street side. None of the hotel have names that can be seen from the beach. It was a great first day and night in Florida. We had a blast. So here is a few photos of Kathy, Russel, Mike and I. More to come this week on the rest of my vacation.
Now I will have to get busy on some vacation inspired cards. And of course the scrapbook pages will follow too. Thanks for stopping. Leave a message as I love to hear from you. Happy Stamping.....

To the beach I come...........

Well not yet but it is so close now. Still planning details of a trip. Going to see a rocket launching and hitting some flea markets. Looking forward to the warm sun at the ocean.

I am so in the mood for Spring and Summer themes. I can't even think about doing anything with winter right now.

As you can see from this card it is all about the beach. This Patti's kids has her pail, shovel and a umbrella to shade her from the sun. She has a nice sandy background I made with some textured paper. Added a pink ribbon to finish her off.

Are you wondering where you can get her or more of Patti's Kids stamps? Try Stamp N Plus Scrap N, they have 50 pages of choices for just this category. They have a nice variety of all kinds of themes.

As always I love to hear what you think, so please post a comment. Thanks for stopping and looking.

Polka Dot Girl



I wanted to play with my new markers and new stamps from Stamp N Plus Scrap N. So this is what I came up with. The girl is called Polka Dot Girl and the flowers are from the Mother's Day Set.


The girl and some flowers are popped up for added texture. I didn't want to add too much cause I wanted to focus on the markers.


I added corners from a corner rounding scissor that I have to finish the look. This is my second attempt with the markers so I hope that you like it.


Spring is finally here and I am so in the mood for it. It will be another great day in Northern Wisconsin. I have flowers coming up through the snow that I still have by my deck. I can so wait until next November to see it again. I really am not a fan of winter at all though the snow is pretty when it is fresh. This year was great though we had a very short winter cause it was nice in October and November and March was awesome.


I love to hear from you, so please leave me a message.


Happy Stamping....Tammy~
