Using Older Products

Good afternoon! Hope everyone is staying warm today. Our temp is at 18 degrees right now, but it's overcast and the sun is hiding so it feels COLD!

Today's post is about using older products. Products that you bought because you loved them, but haven't used them yet. Some people will throw things out because they are old and 'not in' anymore. Now, if you throw things out because it's not your style anymore that's a totally different thing, but don't just throw things out because they're old. Find a new use for them. Cards are perfect for using things that are older and even things that may not be quite your style anymore. This card is an example of that. I have had these epoxy stickers for a VERY long time and haven't used them in probably as long. But on there is a card-a-day challenge and one of the days was to use epoxies. Now, epoxies aren't really my style, so I don't have many of them, and I just don't buy them anymore, but I did have these in my stash, so it allowed me to play as well as use some of my collection that I normally wouldn't have used. It was a win-win all the way around. Plus I think the card turned out pretty cute! Another one to add to my Valentine's card collection.

Remember, yesterday's post was about "Loving your Unloved Stamps" so be sure to scroll and leave a comment with a link to your creation using your unloved stamp.

Love an Unloved Stamp Challenge

Good morning! I figured today is a GREAT day to start our new challenges. Today's is "Love an Unloved Stamp". This does not mean use a stamp you don't love :) It means dust off a stamp that has either never felt ink or one that you haven't used in a long time and use it! Some of my stamps I look at and still LOVE the images, but just haven't used much, sometimes not at all!!! The stamp I used today is one of those. I still love the image, I just have never used it. Since I'm cleaning out my scrapbooking room, I have most of my 'stuff' in tubs and boxes getting ready to paint the room, so I had very limited supplies to use, but it actually made it easier because I didn't have so many choices, so that may be a challenge sometime in the future too! I used some old ProvoCraft 8X8 slab paper, my hero arts stamp, my prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits (those have been left out of my packing and are easily accessible :), prima flowers, and Bella Baubles. You can also get Robin's Nest Dew Droplets in the embellishments section of These things are soooo cool. Bella's Baubles are carried by Both places have great selections and colors! This was definitely a fun challenge and now I challenge you to use a stamp you haven't used in a long time. Leave a comment on this post and include a link so we can see what you created!!! Have fun!

Good Morning! It's supposed to be COLD here today, but I do have to get out this morning, definitely NOT looking forward to that. This is not one of my unloved stamp posts, this card is one that I did recently for another challenge. I really love the challenges because sometimes they get me to try things I wouldn't ordinarily try. Also, by seeing all the things that other people come up with, I gain tons of new ideas and it just helps tremendously with my own creativity. So, I really hope that you will consider participating in the challenges here on Lagniappe. You don't have to do them all, just when you can, jump on in!!

This card uses a Stampendous clear stamp set that I have misplaced recently. In all of my scrapbook room remodel etc (which by the way is going VERY slowly because I get so overwhelmed - I know I should be just ecstatic about it and I am, it's just so overwhelming), I have managed to misplace the whole set.......I will find it though. Back to the card, I colored the flowers with, of course, prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and cut them out. I cut about 1/2" off the front of the card and put a strip of patterned paper on the inside of the card where it would show when the card is closed. Then I attached the 1/2 flowers with pop dots. The front of the card has Basic Grey paper as the background, the 'hello you' stamp is from Hero Arts. I punched circles from the same pp I used on the bottom under the 1/2 flowers with my Marvy scallop punch and pierced the scallops and then drew stitching lines with my Sakura glitter pen. I pop dotted the flower onto one of the circles. The ribbon I think is from Oriental Trading Co. I don't order much from them at all, but I just can't resist ribbon! Oh, I did put bling on each of the flowers, one has gems, the big one has stickles in the center and the others have glitter pen accents.

And the winner is...................

First I would like to say "Thanks" to all of you who took time to let me know your opinions on what we do with my blog. I'm really excited about all the encouragement of my ideas, as well as your ideas that you have shared with me. The idea that was most favored was the "Unloved Stamp Day" so that is what we will start with. I don't know exactly what day it's going to be, but I'm going to try to get one going very quickly. Many other ideas gained alot of interest so in addition to the regular "Unloved Stamp Day" I'm also going to randomly have an "It's a Lagniappe Day". On those days the challenges will be one of the other ideas or something new that I've come up with. It's not going to be on every Monday or anything like that, it's going to be completely random, but I think will be fun to include some of the other ideas that we have gathered! I really appreciate your ideas and encouragement and I hope you enjoy what we're about to start!!

Back to the winner of the fun blog candy: Adair

Blog Candy with some help from You :)

Good Morning! Well, today is the day! I told you I've been thinking about some different things that I want to do with my blog and I have come up with a couple of ideas, but I want your opinions on what you want to see and what would be helpful to you and any different ideas that you have. Whatever we decide won't be set in stone. If we try something and it really isn't working, we'll move on to another idea. But I would REALLY like to hear your opinions on this so please leave me a comment with your opinion and you will be entered into a drawing for this lovely blog candy pictured here, fun stuff!!!

Okay, here are my ideas:
1 - Unloved stamp day - this doesn't mean you use a stamp you don't really like, it means you use a stamp that you love, but that you haven't ever used or you haven't used in a while.

2 - Use this image (or one similar) - With this one I will post a stamp and you will be challenged to use this stamp if you have it or one similar to it. If it's a background stamp I post, use a background stamp, if it's a flower, use a similar flower.

3 - Patterned Paper Combo Challenge - With this one I would specify 2 or 3 patterns of paper and you would be challenged to use all of them on a card or page or altered item. For instance I might choose dots & paisleys, or plaid & stripes.

4 - Use these products Challenge - With this one I would specify 2 or 3 specific products for you to use on a card, page or altered item. For instance it might be chipboard, and buttons, or ribbon and stitching.

5 - We could also go for a specific type of card day, like Thank You Thursday or Birthday Tuesday and maybe we could also specify the kind of thank you or birthday card, for instance a thank you card for men or a birthday card for a child.

With all of these challenges, after you've created your item, I would love for you to put a link in my comments so we can see your creations as well.

Okay, today is Thursday so I'll will take comments until Sunday night midnight and then draw a winner of the blog candy on Monday morning. If you have any additional ideas I would love to hear them too! Thanks for your help with this.

Using What I am "Saving"

Good Morning! Looks like there is more snow in our forecast for today, not alot, but still......

Today's card is about using what I am "saving". I know I have written about this before, but I think it deserves another post. My personality is such that with things I love, I tend not to use them, saving them for the 'perfect' card, scrapbook page, or project. What happens though is that I don't use them and then something else comes along and I purchase it too and then that gets saved and on and on and on, you get the picture. My daughter is helping me with that because she picks out the things she loves and makes something with them. This chipboard "M" is my example for today. You know only 1 "M" came in the package and if I use it I won't have another one to use if by chance the perfect time for it comes along. But I used it and it's a happy "M" now. I'm hoping that when my room finally gets finished, I will use more of my "good stuff" and make it happy too! All this beautiful stuff doesn't do anyone any good just sitting in my scrapbooking room!!!!! Besides that, the more stuff I use and give away, the more room I'll have for new stuff :)

Making the Most of Scraps

Good morning!! It's COLD here again today. I took Sara to school this morning and the thermometer on my car said -1. The sun is supposed to shine most of the day so I'm thankful for that! Well, we are working on my scrapbooking room. It is going to take some time, so I don't know how many cards I'll get made in the meantime, but I will do my best.

This card is made with scraps. I save most of my scrap paper and right now they are all sorted by color, but cardstock and patterned paper all goes together. In my new room, I think I'm going to separate cardstock from patterened paper and still sort by color. It works well for me. The giraffe stamps are from Autumn Leaves, they're called "Mindy's Zoo" and the welcome to the world stamp in from a Fiskars baby set. The giraffes are colored in prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and the welcome to the world is stamped in Sepia Versafine ink.

Have a great day, stay warm, and go do something fun for yourself!!!

a Fairytale

Good Morning! Hope everyone is warm and cozy this morning. Our temp is +12 this morning so we must be in the midst of a heat wave :) We did get some more snow last night but just a little bit.

This card is one that can be used for more than one occasion. It can be a Valentine's card, a wedding card, and anniversary card, a "just because I love you" card. I like cards like this and when I make them, alot of times I won't stamp anything on the inside until I decide what occasion it's going to be for and then I can just add, "Happy Valentine's Day" or "Congratulations" or whatever is appropriate for the occasion. It's fun to have some of these around!

Well, the kitchen is finished being painted and we did start on my scrapbooking room, but we have a LONG way to go. I really am excited about it, but also overwhelmed!!! I keep telling myself that it's going to look so good when we're finished and even more, I'm going to be inspired when I go in there and I'll be very productive. Sara will also have room in there to work with or without me and she's excited about that! So, I will work as hard as I have to, to make this reality! Please wish me luck :)

So take this day and make the most of it!! I haven't forgotten about getting your opinions on some new things to do on my blog, just getting my ideas together, thanks for your patience with me. Have a great day!!!

Baby, It's Cold Outside...............

Good Morning! This card seemed to be the most appropriate for today as our temperature is -9 this morning with a wind chill of -22!!! Some of you may think so what, it's winter, but this southern girl has never been in temps this cold. I always joke that my blood is still southern so when it's cold, I'm REALLY cold. When we went to Louisiana for Christmas, Cliff wore shorts while we were there! It's COLD outside! No plans to get a whole lot warmer either. I guess I will be inside today other than taxi-ing kids around.
This little guy is a felt snowman that I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby after Christmas. I just thought he was so cute so I bought him. That's how most of my purchases go, I see things I like and I buy them even if I don't have plans for them right away. That's why I need a "new purchases" basket in my new room! So I don't forget I have them. I almost always find a good use for something I love so shopping this way works for me. How do you shop? I also used the cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder and the paper behind that is Paper Salon.

Just Because.....

It's definitely a "just because" day! It's really cold outside and the wind is blowing and the snow is still kind of swirling down. Our temp is 10 with a high this afternoon of 14. Tomorrow our high is supposed to be 4. And these are without the wind chill! BBBBrrrrrrrr!! I should be making winter cards, but I made this one "just because" I wanted to and for the card-a-day challenge at

I used old SEI papers, an AMuseArt stamp "just because" and two new stampendous clear stamps. the background on the top of the card is a clear stamp that's about 3/4" X 1" and I just stamped repeatedly to make the background. the daisy in the vase I stamped on watercolor paper and watercolored. It was a fun, simple card.

Part of our kitchen is painted so we have about 1/2 left and then we'll be starting on my scrapbooking room, yeah!!!!

Love ya......

Good morning! Valentine's Day is getting here quickly so if I'm going to send out Valentine's Day cards instead of Christmas cards I'd better get after it. In other words, you may be seeing LOTS of Valentine's Day cards for a little while :) Of course this also means that I have to round up my children for a picture........................

This card is based on a sketch by Janelle Richmond. If you go over to there is a place where she posts sketches and you can link your creation to it. All of the die cut hearts on the green circle are from a cuttlebug die. Michaels had this particular die on clearance and since it was Valentine card making time I decided to purchase it! The love ya.... stamp is from Stampendous, a clear set made exclusively for Archivers. The ribbon is from American Crafts and the buckle is a punch that I love from EKSuccess.

Valentine Time

Good morning/afternoon :o) My posting time keeps changing. I really like when I can post in the morning, but that doesn't always happen for me.
It's time for posting Valentine's cards!! I didn't get Christmas cards sent out this year, so I'm going to try to do Valentine's cards. First though, I have to get pictures of my kids taken somehow. For some reason that's just not on their priority list!!!
For this card I used a new product for me. The Castaway ink pad by Jacquard Products. You stamp the image(s), wait 5 minutes and then iron your cardstock and the images lighten. I did the background of this card with it. It was pretty fun to do. I have more practicing and playing with it to do, but it was fun, kind of like the reverse of versamark, or bleach stamping without the bleach. I also used the CC Designs Valentine's set available at, and my nestibilities and Marvy scallop oval punch. A little ribbon and a little bling on the flower and presto it's finished.
I made this card as a challenge of using only 3 colors (I didn't count the white that LuLu is stamped on). The challenge was from Click on over there and check it out!

You Make Me Smile

Hi! Sorry I didn't get a message posted yesterday, Sara had a volleyball tournament that lasted all day and it was in a town 2 hours away. The girls were so much fun to watch and they won the consolation bracket!

I love that the colors of this card are happy so they just go along with the birds and the sentiment! The birds are the ones by CC Designs that you can find at and the sentiment is from Hero Arts, one of the clear sets.

I have a bunch of ideas going through my head of things to do on my blog. On Amy Westerman's blog she does Scrap Stash Saturday and Taylored Expressions has Cupcake Fridays. I've got a couple of things roaming around in my head that I want to know your opinion on so stay tuned for your chance at helping me with some decisions and winning some blog candy :)

I love quotes and am a collector of them, so I am going to start ending my posts with a quote that fits the post for that day.

Things that Inspire Me

Good morning! Still no sunshine here today, we're supposed to get some, but I am not seeing signs of it yet and I really want to see it!!!

Today's card is all about inspiration. I was in Target one day and was browsing the stationary isle and saw these cool little fabric labels. They had Happy Birthday ones and Thank You ones so I bought a package of each. Well, hopefully I'm not the only one who doesn't actually USE the products I purchase right when I buy them :o) When I finally got around to using them, I couldn't find them, but I loved them so much that I went to Target the next day and bought some more. Yes, I know that's BAD, but I'm hoping that as we clean out my scrapbooking room I'll come across them and then I'll have some extra supplies that I didn't think I had :o)

Anyway......I was doing a challenge to make a birthday card and this label became my inspiration, so I dug into my scrap papers and found these brown and pink papers and I dug into my Maya Road flower chipboard shapes and painted them to make this flower. The blue center is a brad. Then I just used ribbon to make the stem and leaf.

Inspiration can come from anywhere, just be careful walking down the isles at Target, there is ALOT of inspiration there!! :o) Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Something Different

Good Morning!
We are still gloomy here today and are supposed to get a little bit of snow so I have no plans of getting out unless I have to. We are still working on our house and today we are supposed to start painting the kitchen. After that we are moving to the scrapbooking room. HUGE undertaking, but I'm so excited about it. Right now it's so disorganized that I don't get inspired when I go in there. Sara loves to scrapbook and make cards too and sometimes she decides not to, just because there is too much stuff in the way. I have some organizational things that work well for me and some new ones that I want to try. But first, the kitchen!

I made this card as part of the Card-a-Day game that's going on over at If you have had a chance to go check it out, please do. Lots of fun and lots of inspiration! You don't have to start from the beginning, just jump in. I took one day and made about 4 or 5 cards to catch up, but you don't have to do that. Just check it out, it's fun!

I love this stamp!!! It's made by Rubber Stampede and I bought it at Joanne's one day. It's a cherry blossom and I just love the softness of it. On my card, I colored it with copics and then used green twinklette pen to color the insides of the flowers so it has some bling to it. I'm really not that much of a glitter girl, but I sure do love all these products that let you put just a little bit of bling onto things. The papers are some that I pulled out of my scraps and the sentiment is from PaperTrey Inc. The brads are Making Memories, as is the ribbon.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!!

Bucket of Hugs & Kisses

Good Morning! This morning I'm still enjoying the National Championship win of my LSU Tigers, but the reality of laundry is sinking in too!

Today I am sharing a little tin pail that is available at along with the piggie stamp and the LuLu stamp that is on the other side (you just can't see it :) The pail isn't huge, but it's perfect for a teacher gift or something like that. It holds about 1/2 package of Hershey's Hugs and Kisses, did you know that you can buy them in a package together now, it was a cool find for me. My kids couldn't wait until I finished the pail so they would know how many candies I would have left for them to eat!

I used a distressing block to take the gloss off the pail first, oh, the pail comes painted white so you wouldn't even have to cover it if you didn't want to. Then I cut a template because my paper had to have curves to fit around the pail correctly. I mod-podged the paper onto the pail (I love mod-podge) and let that dry completely. The "hugs & kisses" stamp is from a Hero Arts set exclusive to Archiver's so if you're ever in Archiver's be sure to check out the things that they are getting exclusively. I colored my images're right prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and then cut them out and mounted them on Marvy Scallop circle punches. Then just attached everything to the pail. I used lots of fun ribbon to decorate the pail handle. Last step, fill with candy.

It's pretty gloomy here today, but it's not supposed to snow until tomorrow so maybe I'll get some stamping done. We did paint our stairwell yesterday, today is supposed to be the 2nd coat. Also, I want to post about a fun site that I have been playing on, right now they are doing a "Card-a-Day" theme and it's fun!! The site is call and if you go to the message board you can find it, if not let me know and I'll give better directions :o) I will be posting some of the cards I have made for that too....eventually. Have a great day!!

My Little Funny Bunny

Good morning! I had to stay up a bit late to watch my Tigers win the National Championship, but I think I've recovered. Another card using the CC Designs new sets. They're available at I love the colors in this one, I just love the pink and green! I love that you can color the bunnies whatever color you want too, you know, you'll even be able to use him at Easter. Because he's so whimsical you can color him purple and he'll still look adorable! I keep calling the bunny 'he', but it's also a 'she'. I put a little bow on her ears on one of my cards. Again I colored with my prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, I also traced over his whiskers, eyes, nose and mouth with my black glaze pen so they wouldn't get lost in the coloring and it gave them a little dimension too. Liquid Applique for his tail. Nestabilities for the scallop rectangle then I punched holes in the scallops with my paper piercer and used DMC embroidery floss to 'sew' around the outside. These are such fun stamps to use!! Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day!!!!


Just an update for those of you who didn't get a chance to watch the game. Ohio State did come on strong in the first quarter, but after that it was all over!! Final score LSU 38 - Ohio State -24. The LSU Tigers are the National Champions!!
Now, if you did watch the game, you probably noticed how many seniors we will be losing this year, so please bear with me as I enjoy this moment as next year we will have a much younger team and odds are we won't enjoy the rankings that we have enjoyed this year. Not that I'm a fair weather fan, I will always be true to the Tigers, just being realistic.

Monday, January 7, 2008


Good morning! Today, I'm sharing one of my favorite stamps on these CC Designs sets. These little birds can be used for so many things and colored in so many ways. I LOVE them. They are part of the CC Designs set, "Love Ya Much" set and you can scoot on over to to see the sets as well as to check out the gallery and see all of the different feelings you can make with these stamps!
Okay, there aren't too many differences between these two cards I'm sharing, but the main difference is the way I colored the birds. The top one used Copic markers, yes, I'm learning, and the bottom one I used my good ole prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits. I also covered the birds with Diamond Glaze to make them glossy. If you notice on the top one, I have also added primas, that was NOT my original idea, but when I cut it with my nestibilities, I was a little off so as my philosophy is, there are never mistakes, just changes in plans! The "will you be my tweetheart?" in pop-dotted on both cards. Can I tell you have much I love these birds???

Now, onto the business of my beloved LSU Tigers. Tonight is the night!!! 7:00 pm. I have my list of food and snacks, I just have to go to the store and get everything. I can't wait to watch the game, are you tired of hearing about it yet? Well, after tomorrow, you won't have to hear about it for awhile, well, maybe :)

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Funny Bunny Valentine

Hi again. I know I'm falling behind in trying to post everyday. I apologize for that, but I think I'll be doing okay for the next couple of days :) Just a public service annnouncement, the LSU Tigers will be playing in the BCS National Championship Game in New Orleans, tomorrow, yes tomorrow I believe at 7:00. I WILL be staring at my tv :) GEAUX TIGERS!!! While we were in Louisiana, we got a little sign that says GEAUX TIGERS, and I hung it on our front door. One of Sara's friends' Dad, said, "You don't see many of these around here" :) I guess I need to do more recruiting!
Now, onto the card. Aren't these the cutest little bunnies you've ever seen. Once again part of the CC Designs sets, "Love Ya Much" and both of the sentiments I used on this card are part of the set too. $11.00 for the entire set, can't beat that. Click on over to and see all the cool stuff Christine has. I used the little heart that also comes in the set to go around the outside of the red base and then I embossed it in clear. I also used Copic Spica glitter pens to doodle around the hearts and the pink base that the bunnies are on. I used liquid applique on their tails and tied a little bow for the girlie bunny's hair. These are WAY fun I tell you!! Thanks for stopping by and I've got more to share...........

Sneak Peak from All That Scraps - CC Designs

Good afternoon! Here is my first sneak peek at the new CC Designs available on January 4th at Isn't he soooo cute! I know pink doesn't really go with a boy lion, but I just loved the combo! I also know that I will be using this cute lion for Valentine's for my grandsons, I'll probably use blue or green with red hearts though :o) This set is called "Love Ya Lots", the other set is called "Love Ya Much" and they are both filled with the cutest images!! Be sure to go check them out! I got nestabilities for Christmas so of course I had to use them on this card. I think, okay, I know, I'm going to have so much fun with them!!! I'm cleaning today, but I'm also trying to get some stamping time in too so hopefully I will have more to share shortly! Thanks for looking and have a great afternoon.

Happy Winter from LuLu (and me too)

I did it!! I got two posts done in the same day! This is another one of the CC Designs images that you can find at It's definitely one of my favorite ones for winter, I just LOVE LuLu's snow outfit and the little snowman. Tomorrow I will be sharing a card made with one of the newest sets that will be released on Jan. 4th. They are very, very cute!!!! I still love this one though and will probably be making some more winter cards to go along with the Valentine's Day ones. I tried something different on this card and found that I liked it alot! The top paper on the card is embossed with the cuttlebug snow folder and then I used the snowflake cuttlebug die to diecut some white bazzill bling snowflakes to add to the top. I liked the little bit of extra sparkle it gave the card. As usual there is glitter sparkling on my snowman, but you can't see it. I also used liquid applique on LuLu's snowsuit and glaze pen on LuLu's facial features and the snowman's facial features. Coloring was done with my prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits! Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by!

The Kids

As promised, here is a picture of all 4 of our kids and 1 of our 2 grandsons. From left to right, Ben, Tyler, Amy (Tyler's Mom), Erin, and Sara. Jay (Amy's husband) and Case, our 2nd grandson are missing from the picture. We had such a great time being with them for Christmas. We miss them tremendously! They are so much fun to be with and we wish it could be more often, but we'll take what we can get!!!
Hopefully I'll be back this evening with some new cards. Happy New Year everyone!!!
