I have this small little additction to squares......

I love everything about them.  I love how easily they can make a card so cute!
I stamped 4 with Book It, 4 with Dots For Sure and 4 with A Bit of Burlap using 3 different colors of ColorBox ink that matched the colors in the Basic Grey paper I stamped the butterflies on.  They are from Now and Always, I embossed them with Black powder from Stampendous.  The Thanks is from Regal Greetings.  I used Chestnut Road to ink all the edges.  This card was fast and fun!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Many, Many Thanks

I made this card for someone I have never met.  An old friend of mine had a friend at work who gave me all of her Daughter's things for Carlee.  It was like Christmas all the time!  SO SWEET!  The other day there was a huge box on the porch.  She mailed me a huge box full of the cutest clothes you have ever seen!  I couldn't even believe it!  I used my {ippity} stamps BIG SHOCKER!!  LOL  Music Of My Heart.  The music stamp I used my Versamagic black pad.  The bird I embossed with silver EP by Ranger.  It is the BEST!  The ribbon is from Creative Impressions and my favorite!

Do you like to Paper Piece?

I have been loving it lately!  I used to really dislike cutting.  But with my Tim Holtz scissors it is almost easy for me LOL  The stamps are from A Little Buggy.  This card was for another Unity challenge.  We had to use scallops.  I used my Fiskars border punch.  The ribbon is from my stash.  Have you bought any {ippity} stamps yet?  They are all so fantastic!  I have them all for sale here, you should check them out.  They are all on sale too!  :)

Merry Christmas

This was a fun card to make!  It was a Unity challenge.  We had to make a Christmas Card but we couldn't use red or green!  It was a fun challenge.  I used the {ippity} stamp set Season of Joy
The ink is Colorbox and the Siver EP is by Ranger.  All the bling is from a little pack I picked up at Big Lots for 50 cents LOL  they are cell phone bling!  I love a deal like that!  I had to peel the back off of each one!

Thanks for stopping by today!

They are perfect for gift bags, lunch boxes, pillows etc.  This particular one just after I snapped the picture the entire ribbon popped up.  It definitely didn't stick with my ATG gun!  LOL
Both stamps are {ippity} A Moment In Time and the sentiment is from Simply Home.
All the paper is from my stash.  I love making a card all from scraps!  The ink is all Colorbox!  Thanks for stopping by today!

She is my BFF, her name is Heather and she ROCKS at scrap booking and card making.  She LOVES {ippity} stamps and said I could post all her work! 
Here is a card she whipped out last weekend, isn't it so cute?
She used Kissmas & Mistletoe, one of her favorite {ippity} sets!  The blue paper is from a DCWV pad.  The white paper is  Coconut Velvet from Creative Cuts & More.  The Stickles are from Cropping Corner.

Today is SUPER exciting because we are releasing the new Fall 2010 Collection!  It is SUPER CUTE!  I really love it and I think you will too!  I hope you arrived here from NoraAnne's Blog!  Isn't her work amazing!  If you didn't arrive here from her blog you should start from the top so you don't miss any of the fantastic work!
 I LOVE Party Hat Wishes!  I think it is one of the cutest sets in the new release!  I used Gurnsey Gingham for my background. I'm pretty sure it is my new favorite background stamp!  The ribbon and rhinestones are from my stash.  I used Black embossing powder from Ranger. 
 I did an 8 x 8 album page using Cuppy Cakes!  This is my MOST favorite set of the new release!  They are so much fun to work with!!
I did some paper piecing.  I used some Glossy Accents and a whole bunch of Stickles to add some dimension and bling! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I just became an {ippity} chick and I am having a 20% off sale to celebrate my new adventure!  I would love for you to check it out!

Now it's time to hop on over to Susan's Blog!  Get ready to oooh and ahhhh over her fantastic work!

Thanks for hopping along with us today!  Happy Stamping!

Welcome to our November Blog Hop!!

Hi Hoppers!  Hopefully you arrived here from the fabulously talented Scrap-a-Teeny girls blog!   Isn't Kim's work amazing?  If you didn't arrive from there, you should head over to the start so you don't miss anything!
 I decided to make the Gable Box - Tall!  I had it cut in kraft.  The stamps are from Unity.  The EP is Stampendous; Red Metallic.  It doesn't really seem red to me, more like hot pink LOL!
 Here is the side view.  That EP is Ranger in Black.  The stamp is also Unity.  The ribbon is just from my stash.  I did use a little Killer White Tear-able Tape to close the bottom.
 I LOVE this Scallop Purse!  It is so easy to put together!  No adhesive required!  The stamps are {ippity} Season of Joy.   The embossing powder is Ranger is evergreen and silver.  The Stickles are Candy Cane.  The ribbon is from my stash but I know I bought it at Hobby Lobby.
 I ordered a piece of Coconut Velvet Paper to make this card.  I used the Straight Frame - Small for the belt buckle.  The red and black paper is Bazzil Bling.  I'm addicted to it you know!  I was no really happy with the way this card turned out.  I thought it need to be a little bigger.  You know, Go Bigger or go home?  So bigger I did!
I was much happier!  I also happen to have a big daughter and a little daughter so they will see these by their stockings on Christmas morning!  Santa sends cards you know! 

OK, I am the last one on the list!  Now you need to head back over to the start and leave us a comment telling us you did the hop, left everyone a comment and want to win the Christmas Card Kit! 

Thanks so much for hopping with us today!  We hope you are inspired to make something for someone on your list!  Happy Shopping!

I've been scrappin'!

 I love this layout!  That dress was so cute I could hardly stand it!  I'm bummed that the glare is on that picture.  Her face in all of these is super darling.  :)  I layered the Antique Elegance Frame with the Decorative Label to highlight that darling Pooh from her dress  :)  The flowers are Prima and the buttons are from my stash.
 This is Just Dreamy paper by MME.  I used Unity stamps Grateful You.  The buttons are by SU I think!
 I love this outfit too!  I could not help myself and took so many pictures of Carlee in all of her darling outfits LOL  This is Basic Grey Oh Baby Girl paper the ink is Studio G and the stamps are Unity Be "Owl" Mine.

I am on a big mission to use stuff UP!  LOL  The words at the bottom and the Sisters are Rub-On's.  I don't know who made them or where I got them but they are darling and out of my room!  LOL  This layout didn't need much.  The pictures are so sweet I love them.  Morgan was so in love with that baby.  It was the sweetest thing I have ever seen!
OK, that's it for me today.  Thanks for stopping by!

I got to play with some {ippity} stamps last night!

My nephew is going on a road trip to see my Dad so I thought he needed a card!  All three stamps are from the Summer 2010, Authentic Man kit.  I used ranger silver embossing powder.  I love it so much I even inked the edges of the black paper with my Versamark and embossed them too!  The sentiment says enjoy the ride.  I stamped the car on Bazzil Bling.  I love that stuff!  The card is an A2 from Creative Cuts and More!   Authentic Man is available and on sale for $14.40!  Email me if you would like one!  noellereese@q.com.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

The {ippity} stamps are IN THE HOUSE!!

Today I heard the UPS truck, so I went tearing up the stairs, sliding across the hardwood floors only to see it was the trash men.  WHAT???  At 2:00??  That is really late for them so I came back down here and got things ready for work.  I leave at 3.  At 2:55 I hear the truck again, this time I had my shoes on so there was no sliding!  But there was THE BOX!
 I could not believe I only had 5 minutes to go through it.  I seriously considered calling in very, very sick. I kid, I kid!  I have the greatest job on earth!
 The catalog!   Which includes the new beautiful release so you may only see the cover for now.  Once the 18th hits it's fair game!!
 All the kits for sale!  Those are Summer 2010, Spring 2010 and Winter 2010I want to get in that box and roll around!
 These are all the sample sets so I can make beautiful things to sell!  :)  The catalogs and some little ink pads!
 Here is a close up.  The stamps come in the yummy Kraft packaging which I LOVE.  Next to it is my sample set so you can see what they look like.  They come with a white backing, you just peel it off and throw it away and it will stick to any acrylic block you have!
I'm sorry, my model is not for sale.  She works for cheap!  A pack of fruit snacks and this baby will do anything!  However no bribing, begging or pleading was involved.  She is as excited about these stamps as I am! 
So please head on over to my {ippity} blog and take advantage of my 20% off grand opening sale!
Thanks for stopping by today!  It's so exciting around here!  :)

I placed another IPPITY order today!! Here is a SNEAK PEEK!

Do you love these??  I am such a HUGE fan of cupcake stamps!  I must own 50 of them.  I can't wait to get some ink on these!!

I also really love tickets!  So these are right up my alley as well!  This is only 2 sneaks of 8 different sets, you will love ALL of them I promise!  They will be available to buy on the 18th!  HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!  :-)

I also ordered all the previous releases earlier in the week.  Monday I think to be exact!  Those will be here soon!   Here are some group pictures of all the sets I will carry:

I can't get any of the paper, it is all sold out.  But they now have 6 x 6 pads from COSMO CRICKET!  You are going to LOVE those!!  They are super cute and I ordered them!

Being an Ippity Chick is one of the most exciting things I am doing!  I am SO excited!  I can't wait to ink up all those stamps!

Ippity Stamps are the same great quality as Unity stamps!  Do you have any of those?  Let me show you how FANTASTIC they are!

They stamp PERFECTLY with every ink pad I own and so far I have used, Colorbox Chalk, Colorbox Pigment, Studio G Chalks, Studio G Pigment, StazOn, Tim Holtz Distress, Brilliance, Hybrid, Versafine and SU!  Not even one ink was a problem.  They also stick to all acrylic blocks!  They also stick to the lid of the ColorBox chalk in and stamp like a charm!

You get it, you get, it I know!  I just LOVE them!

Unity motivated me last night!

I signed up to sell Ippity and all of a sudden I was racing down the hall to make some cards LOL  I LOVE it when inspiration kicks in don't you?  I turned on the 2nd season of Army Wives and got to makin' cards.  I even joined 2 challenges!  You should too!  Split Coast is a really great place to get inspiration!  I am loving it!
The above card is for The Unity Hip Hop Sketch Challenge #31.   I love using a sketch for cards and layouts!I had to get an emissions test for my car this year.  Well that place happens to be on the same street as Archiver's.  HOW CONVENIENT!  :)  I have been wanting this stamp since the second I saw it so I got it and I had a 30% off coupon WOOT!!  What a steal!  It's a Unity What's Shakin' Itty Bitty in case you want it too!  The card is an A2 from Creative Cuts & More.  The DP is My Mind's Eye [of course].  I used my Spellbinders Labels 4.  All the paper was from my stash!  Don't you love that?  Using scraps always makes me happy!
 The above card was for the Unity Addicts Challenge #24.  There is a recipe and with your initials and birthday month that tells you what you have to make.  I am N [Kraft, White plus 1 color], A [Ribbon] R [2 layers] and I was born in May [Embossing]  The stamps are Unity Mix Up of Cuteness.  The card is an A2 from Creative Cuts and More.  I cut it in Bazzil Kraft and the layer is a pink scrap from my stash.  The ribbon is American Crafts Haute Glamour.  Isn't that a hilarious name?  I love the ribbon though, it is stretchy and sift.  I attached it with Killer White Tear-able Tape.  I love this stuff!   It's hard to tell but I embossed the pink part of each cupcake with the Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug folder.   I put Glossy Accents on the white part of each cupcake and some Stickles on the cherry.
This card is for a girlfriend of mine.  I messed it up TWICE!  LOL  So it's smaller than the average card.  I just cut the edge off both times LOL  Both stamps are Unity [another of coarse they are] The scallop edge is from Fun With Four Inches and the stacked coffee cups are from Wonderful You which I bought as a single from my pals The Scrap-a-Teeny Girls!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'll have the Ippity stamps up for sale shortly!  I placed my order yesterday and they are all FANTASTIC!  I am SUPER EXCITED about it!
