Dress Up Nurse

Dress Up Nurse
Let's play Dress Up!  Playing with the Stampin' Up! Dress Up Framelits reminds me of all the fun I had playing paper dolls as a girl.  And today I dressed her up as a nurse complete with a recover  rapidly Petite Purse.


The Patterned Occasions stamp set-another Sale-a-bration Freebie- provides a sweet Get Well message on both my Get Well Card and my sweet little purse.

Now you are ready to make your Get Well Nurse -Dress Up Framelits (130101) 

Petite Purse-Nurse


Petite Purse becomes a nurse's bag


The Stampin' Up! Petite Purse die is just what the Doctor order.  It's pure cuteness.  Tuck a treat inside and it's sure to bring a smile.  Bandage the Boo Boo with the Patterned Occasions stamp set and a small heart.
Perky Card Design Inside too


  • Use those smaller strips of Designer Paper Scraps to dress up the inside.
  • The Small Heart & the Itty Bitty Punch Pack provide a pretty Red Get Well Heart and cross.
  • My verse is from the Thought and Prayer Stamp Set.
  • And I personalized the message for my sister who broke her foot  (ouch) with the Family Reunion Stamp set.

DIY Famous Couples Pillow

DIY  Famous Couples Pillow made My Digital Studio. Here's a Home Craft that's fun, fast and easy to make.  These handmade gifts are great for Weddings, Anniversaries or just because.

I originally saw the idea of making pillows with the You & Me Designer Download on   Amy from the Stampin' Up! home office posted a picture of her pillow and I knew that I just had to make one for my husband and I.  It was really easy to match the colors in our comforter and I love that I could place Joe & I in the center of all those famous couples.

Home Craft-Famous Couples Pillow

DIY Home Craft Tips

  • Change the colors to match your bedroom or to match bedding on Wedding Registries.  How fun it would be to give a comforter and a matching personalized pillow
  • Personalize it-Change out the You & Me with the Couple's Name.   There are even additional couples names to swap out.
  • Convert to Mirror image and print on Fabric Transfer Iron Ons
  • Pillow- Make your own or buy a light color pillow.  Remove Stuffing
  • Iron on Transfer and replace stuffing. It's as easy as that!
