Thinking of You

My dear friend's wife is having a surgery today.  She's been in our thoughts lately and we sent this card to her last week.

Banners are very trendy and I love using the Sale-A-Bration Sycamore Street DSP.  Jeannette swapped this card with me and I love the layout and rich colors.  

Sweet Essentials is a great value and beautiful fonts.  Check it out, below.  

Have a great Tuesday.

Pretty Petites

I love this little note card, but these colors are difficult to photograph.  This is Island Indigo and Cajun Craze on Very Vanilla.  I love the simplicity of this layout, perfect for mass producing these note cards.  This was created by my teammate Tara, she loves these little stamps and she's teaching how to effectively use them!

Make A Wish

Happy Saturday!  I've told you I love swapping because I love seeing new color combinations or layouts or use of product.  Yes, I can pin it, but there's something intangible about that.  Nerd alert:  I really love Summer Starfruit and when you pair it with Rich Razzleberry, I get tingly!

I'm glad Jeannette swapped this card with me; I absolutely love it.
Have a creative day!

A Shower Thank You

When mass producing cards, invitations or projects simplicity is the key.  It'll allow you to keep your sanity too :)  This is a swap card from Tara and I promise you'll see this layout again.

Don't miss earning the petite curly label punch for FREE during Sale-A-Bration.  It's so much fun to work with!  And if you love this ruffled ribbon, stock up now.  Because it is a 2011-2013 in color, we know it will be retiring with the catalog.

How about a Friday Fun video?  I love bloopers and these come from Demonstrator and Product Training at Stampin' Up!

Have a great Friday and I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned!

Thanks So Much!

How about one more Feeling Sentimental project?  I saved the best for last.

Are you falling for the chalkboard-look?  The Subway art?  I am!!  Simply white emboss, as usual but afterwards, take a cloth or cotton ball (or sponge dauber if you have a lot of these to do) and smear additional white ink anywhere you fancy.

One of the most enticing items in the Spring Catalog was the delicate details lace tape.  I couldn't wait to try it out.  It's amazing. It's the great doily on the Cherry Cobbler panel.   There are two rolls in the package.  It's repositional and more like thin vinyl than scotch tape.  

Leave me a comment and tell me what you think!

Admit One

Did you look up yesterday's song?  Did it make you smile?!?!  I'm using Feeling Sentimental again today; it makes me smile.  

This is quite a clean and simple card for me.  I resisted the urge to emboss and sponge :) I love this stamp that requires no coloring or fussing.

Feeling Sentimental

I'll be sharing projects using Feeling Sentimental this week.  It's one of the FREE selections during Sale-A-Bration.  This awesome bicycle is a penny farthing.  I love it!  This would be a great anniversary card with "I'd go anywhere with you." or something equally witty on the inside.

This reminds me of "In the Summertime" by Mungo Jerry.  Quick, go look it up!  Or better yet, download it!  It'll make you smile!  There's tiny rhinestones on the middle spokes.

I hope you have a great day.

One More Starfruit

I hope you enjoyed the tour yesterday!  I was nervous that my project wouldn't be snazzy enough. Hopefully you had time to see what everyone had been working on.  We'll be back next month and I'll be a touring pro by then :)

I have one more Summer Starfruit card to share with you.  This pattern from the Sycamore Street DSP (sale-a-bration exclusive) is my favorite!  I paired Summer Starfruit with Riding Hood Red, Early Espresso and Crumb Cake.

This was the very first card I created with my Sale-A-Bration goodies.  Look at the details....the doily is great all on its own.  

Have a great (holiday) Monday!!
