Sharon Fincham’s May 2024 Shoebox Event

With Mother’s Day and Father’s Day right around the corner, Sharon designed cards that we could use for both.  For Father’s Day she used a Stampin’ Up! set of dies- ‘Trusty Tools’ that cut out tools!  She had pieces for a toolbox so we could slide the tools in the box and then glue it to the shiny silver embossed background!  Our part was easy in putting everything in place.  Her part would have been hard with making the little tools!  Thank you, Sharon!


I saved two of the tools Sharon had in our kits for the inside and used ‘Guy Greetings’ for a fun saying.  The paint brush swirl and the ‘you are extraordinary’ are in the ‘Beautiful Blizzard’ stamp set from years ago.

  Another stamp from the Bake Sale list!  You should just delete that tab.  

You’re probably right.  Or maybe I should make a card with each of the products and offer the product with a card for sale to see if that would market the stamp set.


For the second card, Sharon designed a fun gate fold with a piggly wiggly!!

I colored him too dark at Sharon’s house so when I got home I tried to lighten him with the blender pen but the ink ran outside the lines on the left, so then I had to find more flowers like Sharon had for the crown to hide my goof.  We have our ways of fixing mistakes!

I will send it to my daughter with the movie “Charlotte’s Web”.

The heart is from the ‘Pictogram Punches’ stamp set.   I loved how it had a heart in the heart which went so well with the greeting which is from the ‘Places In The Heart’ stamp set.

Sharon had a third card for us – peak performer that she is….. with products from Stampin’ Up!  The designer series paper is ‘Meandering Meadows’ and the die is ‘Garden Meadows’ die.


The Happy Mother’s Day and little rose bud are in the ‘Tea Together’ stamp set.

The jewels really sparkle!

They are Swarovski crystals I purchased at the Scrapbook Expo years ago.  I save them for very special cards like this one.  This year’s expo in Denver is Friday May 17-18th.

Thanks for stopping by!

SAL,  Smile A Little – summer is coming!
