Wishing for Spring...

Good Morning,
I have a few more cards to show you soon as I saw this stamp set Trendy Trees(pg 91) I knew I had to have it! These trees can be used in so many ways, for this card I wanted to have green trees, to remember that Spring really is on its way! I stamped the tops in Garden Green, Kiwi Kiss, and Old Olive, then used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the tree trunks, which I stamped in Basic Brown and then layered on Old Olive cardstock. I added a little red sentiment using Real Red, tied a little ribbon on and there you have it~ Thanks for stopping by!

Trying to find some mojo....

I've been struggling lately trying to come up with some ideas for cards and scrapbook pages....I haven't been 100% happy with anything I've made lately but oh well...I suppose it will get better~at least I hope it does! These are two way simple cards I made a little while ago, I just HAD to have that daisy stamp and the poor thing had yet to see that I've finally broke it out I can't wait to play with it a little more. I have really been loving kraft cardstock these days, I think most of my projects the last month or so have used it in one way or another! Anyway these cards as I said are pretty simple and straight forward...hope you like them, Thanks for stopping by!

Hi World...I'm Back

So I have been on a blogging break, while I tried to survive the holidays...but now its a NEW Year, full of NEW opportunities, NEW ideas and best of all a NEW Stampin Up Catalog! Last Thursday was our monthly Stamp Club and I think we made some fun projects. Our hostess for the month, made all the girls these adorable notebooks with the Flower Layers dies, so CUTE!
Our first project used the Mark The Date and Full Calendar stamp sets (found on page 126 of the new catty) We stamped the calendar in Basic Black, and the months in a variety of Stampin Up colors! It was pretty simple to assemble, if you want exact measurements leave me a comment and I'll post them.

The current month hangs with a clip adhered to the front with glue dots, while the months not in use sit in the pocket on the back, I just folded up the Kraft c/s and held it together with the twine from the Holiday Mini (now discontinued).
I thought this was a great way to start off 2009, a little calender perfect for the kitchen counter, next to the computer, or a desk at work!
For our next project I wanted to use the Valentines Bundle, I am loving this cute Valentine set Love You Much (pg27) The bundle includes, the Love You Much stampset, coordinating paper Candy Lane, and cute new punch Heart to Heart...all packaged together at a 20% savings! Contact me to order your bundle!! Anyway onto the project. We started with a Kraft cs base, and layered Riding Hood Red, and Pirouette Pink, on Very Vanilla cs the image was stamped in Basic Brown and colored using the AquaPainters and coordinating inks, to finish it off the ends were sealed using my paper crimper.
As I mentioned our hostess for the month made these adorable books for everyone...I love how great the dies work on such a variety of mediums-fabric, felt, cardboard-so many possibilities!!
Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
