Carousel – GDP079

This week the Global Design Project Theme is Amusement Park.  There’s nothing that says Amusement Park more than the Carousel!  I remember dashing to get on the ride & choosing the prettiest horse to ride on!  Then waving to my people & feeling like a princess!

I couldn’t find a carousel picture, but here’s a couple of photos of Disneyworld with the girls…fun!!!

 

If I thought of it sooner, I would have done a teacup card!!  Malia!  How many times did you make Mom go on those teacups?!!  I’m dizzy just looking at it!

Card Details:

  • Stamps:  Carousel Birthday
  • Ink:  Peekaboo Peach & Wisteria Wonder
  • Paper:  Peekaboo Peach (5 1/2 X 11, scored at 4 1/2, & 3 X 4), Whisper White (5 1/4 X 4), Wisteria Wonder (5 1/8 X 3 7/8), Carried Away Designer Series Paper (5 1/8 X 1 3/4)
  • Accessories:  Enamel Shapes

Don’t you love those 2 colors together?!  And the enamel dots really add a lot!  The Carried Away Designer Series Paper is FREE with any $50 order while Sale-A-Bration is happening… ends March 31st.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great week!

We’re going to package them in these cute little tins.  They don’t ship to Hawaii, but I HAD to have them!!  Thanks to my brother, Gary, who lugged the big box on the plane last time when he flew over to see me & Mom.  Shipping to Hawaii.  You’d think it was another country!  But that’s a whole other story…

ICS Blog Hop Carried Away With Banners!

Today is the first Wednesday of the month, which means it’s time for the Inspire, Create Share Blog Hop!  I’m so excited to be part of this talented team!

We wanted to share some love with you this month so our theme is Happy Valentine’s Day!  We’ve just had our kitchen remodeled and I wanted to make a banner to hang up there…here it is:

Isn’t that fun?!!  I used the Banner Thinlits and the Carried Away Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration (FREE with any $50 order!).  If you look closely you’ll see some goodies from Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit (tassles, bow, ribbon).

My Big Shot finally kicked the bucket while I was making this project!  It has served me well for many years & been used & abused!  It has been groaning & making noises for a few weeks & actually spit some things across the room!  May it Rest In Peace!  I can’t get myself to throw it out yet.  I have to admit though, Sale-A-Bration is the best time for this to happen!  2 more FREE SALE-A-BRATION items!

Thanks for joining us this month and feel free to leave us some love in the form of comments!

Now hop on over to Terry’s blog and see what she has to share this month.

Can’t wait to see what other 3-D ideas the SSINK Team has come up with!
