DtsArt Desgin team. Panda Bear

This week for my DtsArt design team project I had a little boy and girl Panda bear cut to play with. I wanted to make a cute card with them and was looking for a cute little slogan to put on the card. Well who remembers that crazy Milkway commercial from 2006 where the girl comes out of the bar and says "why so blue panda bear?"  Well I  thought wouldn't that be the perfect saying for the front of a card with a Panda Bear on it, I thought it was! So here is what I came up with:

Here is the commercial for anyone who doesn't remember.

Make sure you check out what the other designers did this week to!

DtsArt Desgin team. Red Bird!

This week Dardi gave us the cutest little red bird to work with, and I absolutely love this little guy. I knew I would end up making a card with him, but I wanted to do something more then just a "normal" card. So I was thinking it would be fun to make him a spinner card, and then I remembered on the pooh and friends cart there is a log so I thought it would be really great to make him spinning down the log! I absolutely love how this came out, I don't think it could be any cuter.

Ok on to the photo so you can see what I'm talking about:

I also did a little video so you can see him spin:

If you would like to see how to make a spinner card please check out my tutorial I posted back in Jan 2011.

Also make sure you check out DtsArt to see all the other great projects that were made this week with this cute little guy!

Stampin Up Club!




In the last 2 yrs I have become addicted to Stampin Up its such a great company and their products are fantastic, and my favorite is their paper! I've officially become an SU paper snob! I have shelves and shelves of DCWV paper and I never use it, I hate how the stuff cuts in my cricut it always tears and you get those little balls of fuz on your edges and then you have that ugly white core that you have to some how cover up. Ick! When I use my Stampin up paper I never have any problems, now it is thick so I do have to set the multi cut, but I always get a nice clean cut, and no ugly white core to cover up! Plus their stamps are fantastic and I love all their punches and ribbon, and the list goes on!

So that's why I'm putting together another Stampin Up Club, I took a little break while I waited for the new catty to come out but the 2011-2012 catalog is out and let me tell you it is fantastic! Your going to love it!!!

So if you love SU as much as I do, or if you haven't tried SU yet and would like to here is your chance! Please see all the details below:

I’m looking to put together another on-line Stampin Up Club, made of 5 craters that will run for 5 months Aug - Dec. Each month everyone will put in an order of at least $30 (plus tax and shipping to me, shipping is 10% of order cost, I will pay shipping cost to you) and each month one member (everyone will get a turn) will be named as “host” and receive at least $25 in hostess dollars.
In addition everyone will get:

A welcome kit with a bunch of goodies in it (I don’t want to give away the surprise),
A free ’11-’12 catalog,
any mini’s that come out during the club,
2 project kits each month,
and a chance to win a raffle each month.

Please email me with any questions: Chrtob@msn.com.

Baby Cake

We had a small baby shower at work for my co-worker who was expecting. I volunteered to make the cake so I could play with my cricut cake. This is the first time I have used Fondant, and I have to say for my 1st time I think I did a pretty good job. Of course the cupcakes helped hide some of the imperfections! :)  For the fondant I used Duffs fondant from Ace of Cakes and it was pretty yummy for fondant.

 A close up of the little cake, which was my fav part!.
