For the Dad

Spread the diaper in the position of the diamond with you at bat. Then fold second base down to home and set the baby on the pitcher’s mound. Put first base and third together, bring up home plate and pin the three together. Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game and start all over again.

Washi Tape

With father’s day coming next weekend, I wanted to make a manly man card. No buttons or flowers or ribbons – just something simple from me to Mr. Catered Crop.

You Have My Heart

It seems I can never say it enough. Father’s day is as good as day as any to say it again – You Have My Heart.


Tips & Techniques

It’s teaser time at My Favorite Things (MFT). Some beautiful and fun new toys have already been revealed, so be sure to check them out, along with all the gorgeous creations from the Design Team at the MFT Blog.

I used the new set, Bold Statements, for the sentiment with Black Licorice ink.

I made my own Washi Tape! What?! Yeah, really. This new Washi Tape Die-namics is so fun to play with.

Here are the MFT products I used today. The links for all of the new products will be live and the products will available for purchase in the MFT Boutique on June 11th at 10:00 PM EST .

Finished size: 4-1/4″ by 5-1/2″. Other ingredients: Fancy Pants Designs Etcetera 6×6 Paper Pad, Ranger Old Paper Distress Stickles, Tim Holtz staples/stapler. The layout is inspired by this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches, #201.

    LOVE today’s quote, heading to today’s game at 4! Must save quote for a scrapbook page! Diapering page or baseball page, maybe both, not sure! Meanwhile, back at the paper crafting side of today’s show…. Love the neutrals with the triple scoop too! They absolutely lend themselves to the masculine side of things — now that you mention it! Graduation, birthdays, congratulations, stuff like that. Excellent idea! thanks for sharing it with us!

  9. Ohhh, love your card and all the details. Great guy card for Mr. Catered Crop. Love those Bold Sentiments and new faux washi tape stamps and dies.
