This Little Piggy for SSINK

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team will be showcasing Animal Ideas!  I chose This Little Piggy!  

Most of you probably think of playing “This Little Piggy” with your babies.  I think of something a bit different.  My dad was a HUGE Big Band Fan!!  I’d be trying to do homework after school and I’d be the one yelling at my dad to “Turn down the music!”.  Glenn Miller had a fun song called, “Boogie Woogie Piggy”  that we’d dance the jitterbug to.  That’s the song I sang to my babies when I’d tickle their toes!  Does anyone else remember that song??

Back to my card.  My daughter, Malia, actually gets the credit for this cute card!  She came up with this fun opening that has a 3rd circle on the inside for your personal note.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure & hop over to the SSINK Page to see more animal ideas!

I’ll leave you with a picture of my handsome dad, probably taken around the time I was a baby.

 

Double Z Fold for #SSINKFF1

Fun Folds are my favorite!!!  And today at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration we’re featuring a Double Z Card!  This is so simple & cute that you have to give it a try!!

Here’s how the card starts out.

But when you open it…isn’t that pretty?!!

I started out just wanting to use that gorgeous black background paper!!  That’s the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper.

I’ve seen a lot of variations on the Double Z Fold.  Some move the bottom strip up a bit and others have a wider strip.  Head over to the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Page to see more ideas using the Double Z Fold!

SSINK CASE the Catalog

Why don’t I do this more often?!!  I’m talking about CASE-ing the catalog.  I’ve been wanting to play around with my new stamp set, So Many Shells, so I went to page 38 in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

Well, not a big surprise, but I can’t find my Mini Treat Bag Thinlits!!  It’s here somewhere!  So I made a card instead, & LOVE IT!  What do you think?

I just love 2-step stampin’!  And I love that new Ombre Ribbon!!  Supplies listed at the bottom of this post.
