Nouveau Chic gift Set

Nouveau chic DSP on Scrap tin, top note chipboard brag book, and Sizzix die cut #2 box
Embossed stamp from /a

Oh' Sunny Day!

This tin was created with the Stampin' Up! Sunny Day Simply Scrappin Kit and I have enough left over to make one or two more supplementing the paper of course. That is why it so nice to have all the SU cardstock colors on hand!

Inside of the tin the embellishments are small and work well with the scrap tin concept.

Scrap tins are great because you can finish them in a DAY!! Love INSTANT GRATIFICATION!!
This is my absolute favorite DSP SU has ever came out with! Nouveau chic!

This is perfect if you want to take your pictures and change the tone to black and white.

This tin has a top note that has been die cut a second time and then embossed in silver with my fav stamp from All Holidays, check out how to cut the top note again at
My friend Laurie's blog she has step by step instruction photos

inside of tin just customize your pics to less than 3x4 in height and width or use the wallet function if you don't have the option to customize on your printer.
I made this in a flip scrap album as well, which allows you to put larger pictures and journaling on the side.
All tins here are available for order in pre-cut kits or pre-made.
If you would like to just purchase the directions for the tin supplies and assembly directions for $24.95 shoot mean email at

Scrap Tins for Custom Order

I picked up this paper at my local scrap store when all the paper was 1/2 price
and I had the cutest chipboard cupcakes made by Creative Imagination (BE) which I covered with cardstock and used puffy paint and made the frosting. you have to use a blow dryer not you heat tool to heat puffy paint up. Trust we learned the hard way at Christmas last year!
I chose to widen my array of collection of tins that I am selling at my craft store at the Daytona Flea Market. Especially because so many ppl that come through are visiting from other areas. It also shows them that they can take materials they have at home and apply them to the techniques they learn in my stamp camps! I teach a stamp camp monthly on how to make the scrap tins! It is so much fun sharing with people who have never heard of Stampin' Up! about the SU advantage and then they go home and look up a demonstrator in there area by going to under demo locator and find a stamp group in their area!
All these tins are for sale and available for custom order.

I made a few vacation tins with some of the paper I purchased at the scrap shop. Unfortunately right now Stampin' Up! does not have a selection of vacation or baby papers right now. So I am
in cases like this we have to get crafty. The flip flops on the front are a Sizzix Big Z die which I think just make this tin adorable!! They also make a great card!! Especially here in Daytona everyone wears flip flops it is like an unspoken mascot for feet! LOL!

The inside of the tin is bright, cheery and just waiting for your vacation pictures! These tins make wonderful gifts for any occasion. I am already receiving custom orders for tins that ppl want to give their loved ones as presents. Please if you have an order in mind go ahead and email me so I can schedule you in. Time gets away from us this time of year.
I look forward to receiving your orders soon!

I have more samples I will be posting soon!
Hope you enjoy them!!

Chesne Gets her Drivers License!!

This is my oldest daughter Chesne who I can't believe will soon be 17!
Yes, I took her to get the old DL! This is before we left the house.
Chesne holding her drivers license in front of the 96 Camry I have saved to give her on this day!

This is right after she came back from her driving test and she knows she passed shes breathing again!

If you have a teenager I strongly suggest the book "The Language of Letting Go " by Melodie Beattie. It will help you through some scary times and help you learn to let go and let them grow up! Remember you raised them, you are not responsible for their choices or their consequences they are!! God however will just give you the strength and courage to help them through life. But God has got them, you are not in control, God is. Ohhhh that is so hard to remember on a daily basis! Keep praying!! I am so proud of my beautiful daughter she has grown up alot this summer. She will be a junior this year!! She knows things now that took me 25 years to learn!

Guest Designer Sue Gilroy

My friend and customer Sue Gilroy has been attending my classes for almost a year now in Brandon, Florida. She attended the Scrap Tin class I held one month and fell in love with making tins! She has made them for several family members, neighbors and friends for all different occasions. She received this kit as a gift from me as a Hostess gift for hosting several meetings/classes for me now that I am out of town.She provided a wonderful location for our group Serenity Stampers to meet
She made a beautiful tin and I love the design on the front of her tin which she used her SAB punch set and her eyelet border to really dress it up.
Aren't Simply Scrappin Kits fun and easy to use for ONLY $ 19.95 Everything so color coordinated and the die cut adhesives(stickers) are so beautiful and match the cardstock perfectly! You get so much more than those kits in the stores!!
Sue thank you so much for the wonderful demonstration of what you can do with a pre-cut ready to assemble scrap kit! I am very proud to have you as a friend and a class member.
Sue and her husband travel the craft fair circuit and that is where we met they make beautiful jewerly check out their blog at
