February Stamp Club Samples

My two new stamp clubs met last night. Hello Chocolate Chip and Pretty In Pink Girls! Here are the three projects that we made.

This card is done almost completely with Sale-a-Bration items. The stamp set used is Polka Dot Punches from SAB, the Designer Paper is Delicate Dots from SAB and the Ribbon is So Saffron Grosgrain from the SAB Ribbon Bundle. The card base is Certainly Celery with one edge being punched with the new Eyelet Border Punch. All the images were punches using various SU punches. The flower eyelet is from the new Asst. Flower Brad Asst.

This card is done in the new Retro Fresh Style. The set used is Cheep Talk. We also used the coordinating Good Morning Sunshine Designer Paper, Pacific Point/Chocolate Chip/Kiwi Kiss/Pumpkin Pie cardstocks and Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon. The pumpkin border around the edge of the branch image is distressed. This was a super simple fun card.

Lastly we made these card carriers. I found the design on SCS and followed a tutorial online done by Julie Buhler. It's fabulous and so cute. I will definitely be making more of these. The supplies we used on this one are Rose Red and Kiwi Kiss Cardstocks & Inks, Kiwi Kiss Striped Ribbon, Raspberry Tart Designer Paper, Pretties Kit, Scallop Punch, Aquapainters, Tool Kit, Word Window & Corner Rounder Punches, Silver Brads and lots of Sticky Tape. The "For You" image comes from the One of a Kind Set.

Happy Valentines

I know I am Here are the Valentines I made for my oldest daughter. They are sucker covers and each one has a Tootsie Pop inside. I bought these sets a long time ago, probably pre-kids. They have long since retired, but I held onto them just in case someday I had kids. I had grand plans to make the Valentines for all three kids, but 60 turned into too many. So Allison gets to take these and the twins got to take store bought ones..... I know.... gasp. Anyway, I kept these simple The backs had a Happy Valentine's Greeting an space for the To/From as all kids Valentines had. I am glad I saved these sets. I will be using them again someday.

Happy Valentines Day Everyone!!!

January Open House Samples

Thanks to all that attended my New Catalog Open House last month. It was a lot of fun. Many of you have asked about my retiring set sale. I did sell many but still have well over 100 sets to sell. My husband is in the process of taking pictures of them all. Once we get them processed I will post them for sale online.

Here are the two make and takes that I had at the Open House.

This first one uses Delicate Dots Designer Paper and Botanical Blooms stamp set. These two are items are part of the Sale-a-Bration Promotion. Order $50 worth of product and choose a SAB item free. In addition we used the new Eyelet Border Punch.

This next sample uses my new favorite set- Trendy Trees. Love that set. This is a super simple card with my standby favorite colors Pink Pirouette & Chocolate Chip, plus a hint of Kiwi Kiss.

See you soon with my kids Valentines and Upcoming February Stamp Club Samples.
