My First PTI Blog Hop!

PTI's blog hop this month is to show something you made previously then make something new with it in mind. I made this get well card as part of a gift set of cards.
Here is the new one I just made using the same DSP just in a different color.  I love the topiaries from the Door to Door stampset.  Gotta run and get my kids so I don't have to post the recipe but if you have any questions just leave one in the comment section.  Look Here to see what everyone else has created!  Thanks for looking!

CAS Tag Card for Paper Players

A clean and simple card for Paper Players Challenge #79.  This was ever so simple since all I used was the elements from the Good Times Simply Scrappin' kit from Stampin Up!.  Just cut my tag from PTI's tag sale #1.  Thanks for stopping by!

Loopsy Daisy Die boxes and Blog Candy!

Yay I finished the boxes for all of the tags I made.  I'm going on a stamping weekend at a local B&B in a couple of weeks so a few of them are for the friends that are going and one for the owner of the Inn.  I LOVE the new loopsy daisy die (obviously!)  It worked perfectly for the top of my box.  I'm going to give one of these away as my first blog candy along with some other craft goodies including some new copic markers, some DSP from PTI and SU, a butterfly punch from SU (I accidentally bought 2...duh!), last year's anniversary set from PTI and whatever else I may find in my stash.  To win please do the following:

1. Leave a comment here. One comment per person please.
2. Become a follower (click on icon on right side).
3. If you have a blog please add this blog candy to one of your posts
    linking it back here.

I'll leave the comments open until January 31st and I'll pick a winner. There's no way I can list everything I used but all of the info for the tags is in my previous posts.  Any other questions just ask in the comment section.  Thanks for stopping by!

Valentines for Card Drive

Made ten of these for Winter's Card drive HERE. She's sending them to four different hospitals (as of right now).   I don't have many Valentine stamps and since I made ten I wanted to keep it simple. They are supposed to be for any age and gender.  I know pink is feminine but I couldn't help it, pink says Valentine's Day to me :)   Check out her post and send some of your own if you're able to.  Thanks for stopping by!

Last of the tags!

This is the last  three tags in the set of ten.  Now to get the box done!  I hope to at least get it finished by the end of the week.  I want to say thank you to everyone who has welcomed me so warmly to the blogging world with such sweet comments!

Three More tags

Three more tags for my set.  Almost done so I guess I'll have to tackle making the box for them soon.  I'm looking forward to it but at the same time it will be frustrating.  I want to challenge myself though.  The more I do that that easier it will get the next time.  Hoping that what it looks like in my mind will be just as nice in real life.  Thanks for looking!

Stamps: In Bloom, Enjoy the Ride, Signature Series Cupcake (All PTI)

Rosie Posie for a Few Challenges

Happy Sunday! Saw the sketch challenge yesterday for Just Us Girls and knew I wanted to make a card for it. A friend of mine asked me to make a Valentine's card for his wife. This set just came in the mail yesterday and I love it! I will definitely have to make another tag out of that big flower.  The sketch was an oval but this is the only die I had that would fit the flower so I hope that's ok.  I'm also submitting it for PTI's MIM #47 which was  a rewind of all of the previous year's challenges.  I used the challenge from week 2 using the vellum strip. The third challenge is the Paper Players #77 which is a Love challenge.  I still need some work on my photography and photo editing skills!  Thanks for stopping by :-)

Tags 3 and 4

Back today with tags 3 and 4 in what was originally going to be a set of  eight but I just ordered the new Rosey Posey set from PTI so it will probably end up being at least 10 now :-)  I need different lightbulbs or something to take pics with, this looks so yellow.  If anyone has any suggestions I'd be pleased for any help in that area!
Thanks for stopping by!

Tissue Box holder

I made this tissue box holder using the tutorial on Splitcoast. I keep it right on my desk, I like it so much better than the original packaging! I wish I knew what the DSP is called. It was from a monthly kit from Taylored expressions. The cardstock came from the same kit.

Stamps: Bliss, Happy Moments (SU)
Dies: Limitless Layers (PTI)

Tag #2 and ColorQ #118

I sat down to make my this second tag today and couldn't decide what colors to use...then I saw ColorQ #118. Thanks ColorQ! I'm new to this blogging thing so if someone could help me on how to put the ColorQ tag I'd appreciate it very much, thanks! These tags will be CAS but I'm making 12 sets so I need them to be! I notice now looking at my balloons that the left one is a bit crooked. I'm just going to say that a slight wind caught that one..hehe. Thanks for looking!

My First Post & MIM 47

I finally got around to starting a blog. I've had the name saved for quite some time. I decided on it because my last name is Peters and I've always had people make jokes about it. The company I work for used to be called Peco Powerlabs. I had to answer the phone "Peco Powerlabs, Penny Peters may I help you"? After that was laughed at a few times I would leave my name off. Then one day I realized I was Penny Peters from Parkesburg Pennsylvania and I worked at Peco Powerlabs. My kids like to say it and laugh. The papercraft blogging world is so friendly and inspirational so I wanted to join in! I hope someday I can inspire someone as well.

Papertreyink is one of my favorite companies and this Monday they're make it M0nday challenge is a rewind of the entire year's challenges. I loved the dies into folded tags so I decided to make a birthday/any occasion set of them for some stamping friends. This is the first of eight I made. I will post the rest also when I get the time. I also want to make a cute box to hold them in.
