Live, Laugh, Stamp!

A window to my creative world.

Butterfly Thank You

Posted by emileehathaway on November 10, 2009

Sorry it’s been a while since posting … again, but I have had two really sick kiddos.  We have had the croup for the last week and a half and I am here to tell you, it’s not fun!!  Carson started feeling sick on Sunday night, by Tuesday morning we were at the Dr.’s, then Kyler started filling icky on Wednesday night, so back to the docs on Thursday and back again on Saturday for the last treatment.  So, needless to say I haven’t had 1 minute to do anything!  But we are on the mend and the house has been cleaned and lysoled, floors moped and laundry done so I feel good about spending a couple of minutes on the computer!  🙂

I don’t know if any of you visit Dawn McVey’s blog My Favorite Things, but I have to say she is one of my favorite’s!   I love her stamping style and she has a super cute personality.  Anyway, the other day she posted these darling butterfly “embellies” as she called them and I fell in love with the card she made!  I had a couple of thank you’s to make so I hurried and whipped up 3 or 4 of these bad boys.  I love her color combo and so why mess with a good thing, right?  I used tempting turquoise, kraft, and pixie pink.  I love the simple look of the card with one big embellishment that is the focal point.


I hope you are having a good week and I’ll be back in a couple of days with more Christmas goodness!


Stamps:  all in a row, season of joy

Are you ready for the holidays?

Posted by emileehathaway on November 3, 2009

I am!  I have been Christmas shopping since August!  I love Christmas, it is my favorite holiday! 

I got my Christmas supplies order and couldn’t wait to use my new goodies and here are the first 2 things I made.  The box is super duper cute and super easy to use!  You get five in a package and these are going to be awesome neighbor gifts.  All I need to do is a little holiday baking … But that will need to wait until December! 🙂


The little canister is filled with candy for my sweetie … it is simply a Crystal light canister modified. 


Don’t you love the ornament on top?  I’ve seen these all over the internet so I don’t know who to give credit to, but it is just 3 ornament punches folded in half, hooked together and attached to the lid.

Both of these projects together took only 20 minutes!  Can you believe that? 

Have a super day!

Papers:  DSP from Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin’

Happy Halloween!!

Posted by emileehathaway on November 1, 2009

I hope you had a super fun Halloween.  We did!  It was fun taking the kids out trick or treating.  Kyler was so excited to get candy!

It was super cute because at each house he would say “Trick or treat … thank you for the candies!!!”

Happy Halloween from my little bunch of clowns!

Where has she gone?

Posted by emileehathaway on October 26, 2009

I am so sorry it’s been so long since I have last posted.  But I have good reasons, I honestly do!

First, and  most importantly, I have been hanging out with my two boys!  I have to say, it’s been such a fun summer hanging out with my kiddos.

Second, I haven’t made anything to share … sorry, I’ve been with my kids!

Third, my computer broke about a month ago.  I had a Dell Laptop and the screen went out and the mother board started to fail wich basically means “too expensive to fix”.  That was awesome!  Since I only had the stupid thing for 2 years.  Well, my new computer arrived today and so hopefully I am back!

I have some fun things to share, I just have to finish loading all my software on my new laptop tonight after my kids go to bed and then I should be able to post pics starting tomorrow so stay tuned!

Have a fabulous day!

I’ve been busy …

Posted by emileehathaway on August 3, 2009

With the cutest little boy!  My little Carson is so dang cute and my Kyler is so cute with him! 


I know I haven’t posted in a really long time, but I’ve been having so much fun being a mom I haven’t made anything since club last month!

But I do have a sneak peek at what we are doing for club on Saturday.  This was the technique for the week on Splitcoast and I had never made one before so I thought it would be super fun to make one for club.  They take a little bit of time to put together, but I really like the outcome.  Ladies, don’t worry about bringing any paper or embellishments, I’ll provide everything, just bring your paper trimmer, adhesive, and scissors.

Hope you like it, and I’ll see you on Saturday!

Club is this Saturday!!

Posted by emileehathaway on June 23, 2009

Alright Ladies … Hold on for the ride, this is going to be a LONG post!

YEAH … Club is this Saturday at 11:00 at my house, it feels like FOREVER since we have had club and I am SO excited!

OK, so we are making stationary boxes and 3 mini cards.  Here is the list of stuff you need to bring, just in case you forgot …

  • 2 pieces of Designer Paper, ribbon or any embellishments you want to decorate your cards and stationary box
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive
  • Your Catalog

This post  is one idea for your stationary box, here are some more ideas.  These first couple of pictures are the same kind of idea as the previous post.  I made this one for my Grandma for her birthday.  Her favorite color is red and she sends out more cards than any woman I know so I thought this would be the perfect gift for her.  So ladies, you can make these boxes as elaborate or as plain as you like.  As you all know, more is more in my book and I love to embellish the crap out of my stuff.  🙂



This next idea I had, probably because I have baby on the brain :), (he is 7 weeks old tomorrow, can you believe it?) is to double up the boxes and make a gift bag.  I filled it with a onesie and shoes on one side and bath supplies on the other.





So, what do you think?  Are you as excited about this project as I am?  It’s going to be super fun! 

The other idea I had was a recipe card holder … I didn’t make one, just thought it would work for this box.  It’s your choice what kind of box you want to make so for Saturday be sure to bring everything you want to make your box super fabulous and your cards incredibly cute!

See you then!
