Clearly Inspired Challenge #21--Take 2

I have so enjoyed using the digital stamps Clear Dollar Stamps made to Help Katie.  Using them reminds me to pray for Katie and her family.  So. . .here is take 2, using a sentiment from CDS.  I ususally make several similar cards once I decide on a plan.  In case my lay-out looks a little weird, this is the outside of one card, next to the inside of another.

Clearly Inspired Challenge #21 (CIC21)

    I have had an idea for a bubble gum machine in my head for a while, mainly, because I wanted to recycle some little plastic doohickies that my very expensive medicine came in.  If it cost that much the containers must be too valuable to just throw away!!  So this digital stamp from Clear Dollar Stamps couldn't have come at a better time!  I used the plastic from my containers for the machine's globe and the stamp for the rest.  I filled it with punched out hearts.  Personally, I love it, but I still have a hundred or so containers, so I'll have to come up with another project!
     I am also loving these dies from Clear Dollar Stamps.  I find they are the perfect size for so many sentiments I want to add.  The sentiment on this card is also from CDS, part of the Help for Katie set.

JustRite Friday Challenge 046: Technique - Scoring!

How could I pass this one by?  I can't craft without my Scor-Pal!  My project here was for a reception for my daughter and new son-in-law.  Because of health issues, I was unable to attend their wedding in Las Vegas.  We had a small family reception this past weekend.  Of course, my JustRite fonts were a great tool, too!  I stamped, then embossed the bride's and groom's names before cutting the tags with a Spellbinders die.
I love that I can make boxes of any size so simply with a Scor-Pal.  My kids got me a mini cupcake maker for Christmas so I had to make a prototype for that size, too!
