Easter Bird

I made this Easter card at stamp camp. It wasn't meant to be an Easter card, but that's what I wanted/needed, (and Susan had an Easter stamp in the 'greetings' box). I thought this was a fun little bird with the whimsical squares down the side. All Stampin' Up product.

Birthday Card

Hello Everyone!
With this gorgeous weather we have been having here, I haven't been blogging as much as usual.  This card is from February stamp camp. It is all Stampin' Up. Black and white and grey, for a man or woman. Why can't a guy enjoy flowers? We get to stereotypical about things when making cards, I think. Well I tend to, anyway.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks to all of my new followers and circle additions!!!!

Woods Ware Creamer and Sugar Bowl

 I don't know if this is a 'collector' set or not, but it was one of my grandmother's treasures. That's part of why I love it. I also love the smooth feel of it, the blue & white color and the scenes it depicts. Here it is holding my sugar and instant Christmas coffee packets.

This set sits next to my coffee maker so I see and use it everyday. Memories of my grandma. . . . .

I Was Featured

I was featured at I Gotta Create!, for the Kiss Me I'm Irish Party. Thanks Christina! This is the ATC card featured:

A Lil' Luck O' the Irish

I made this with a free printable from Cheryl at That's What {Che} Said. I found her blog at a Blog Party, she's great!

A word about Blog Parties.....

I think it is important to visit other blogs from the parties. I visit & comment on the post just before mine and 3-5 others. When I go back later I visit & comment on the post just after mine too. Be sure to leave a comment, not everyone receives a lot. If they have word verification on I tell them that they will get more comments if they turn it off, so come on ladies, TURN IT OFF!!! Anyway, be nice, make someone smile. Visit what looks interesting, or what is different from what you do, you never know what you'll find.
Thanks for listening! Smiles~Lori

A Little St. Patrick's Day Vignette

 We are not Irish so I have no St. Patrick's Day Decorations! I wanted to put a little something together, and this is what I came up with.... A beautiful doily in white with a bit of green that I found in a box of linens from both of my grandmothers....a white plate with hand painted clovers, in a box of dishes from both grandmothers....3 of the 4 ice cream glasses that I bought long ago, because our kitchen used to be light green....a bunch of silk daffodils that I've had forever....and I put together a page using brushed gold card stock, green card stock and a printable from Krista at While He was Napping.

I took the lazy way out, not a ton of thought or work. Oh well, it's a little festive, anyway!!! **grin**

Thanks so much for viewing my quickie vignette, please let me know what you think!
~Hugs, Lori

My [Late] Top Five Friday #2

Really? How did I miss posting my second, (only the 2nd), Top Five Friday picks? Oh, yeah, I felt awful and haven't turned on my computer at home for two days. Anyway here there my top five Otter Pictures from my 'Beings That Breathe' board on Pinterest:


I just love otters, they are so sweet! Probably not 'in real life', but they sure look like they are in pictures. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and please leave me a comment, what do you think about otters?

Embossed Blue

I found pieces of this card the other day. We made it at stamp camp a few months back and I never finished it. The blue leaf stamp is heat embossed and the brown branches behind are stamped 3 times without re-inking. We were at Susan's, but I have no idea what her example card looked like. Probably like this. Everything is Stampin' Up.
Thanks for leaving me some love,

Top Five Friday

It's Top Five Friday!!!
Yes, something new here at Creative Paper My Way. I decided that I should do something with the Pinterest habit I've developed. I have always loved pictures in magazines and in print of every kind. Guess what happened when I found Pinterest? That's right, I fell in love with all of the fabulous pictures. I tried to keep my number of boards to a minimum, but what the heck?! I have so many ways to do Top Five's using my various boards. I did a Pink post on Sunday, which had me thinking. Why not do this once a week? Top Five Friday sounded good, so there you have it. Here are my top five favorite, in no particular order, Blue & Green tea cups that I pinned at Pinterest.....

You may be saying to yourself: "4 of the 5 are blue, where's the green"? My Board is called Blue & Green, and there is a mix of, well, blues and greens, solids and not.
Go check out Pinterest if you haven't yet by clicking on the Follow Me At... button, on my lift sidebar. I would like to keep this weekly post short and sweet. I think next week I'll add a bit more about the items that I show though. Thanks for visiting!
