Oh My Goodness!

Stampin' Up has out done themselves this year!  I, L-O-V-E, love the NEW 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog!  I love it so much I think I may have to host another class each month just to fit in all the projects I would like to do!  The NEW catalog is available on July 1st - contact me to find out how you can receive your very own copy.  Look for my new class schedule coming soon!

Something Blue

I have a couple weddings and bridal showers this summer so I thought I would try my hand at a cute gift tag.  I used the level one hostess set in the summer mini, It's the Thought, along with the hearts from a Last Chance set, Sprinkles (one of my favorites).  I love how it turned out - can't wait to attach it to a gift!

Mojo 143

I used this week's Mojo sketch to create a card for my father-in-law.  He is an "outdoorsie" kinda guy and I thought this tree paper pattern from the Sweet Pea DSP pack in the occasions mini was a perfect fit.  I love the texture plates for the sizzix and thought the wood grain texture was the great compliment.  This paper is not available anymore but I'm trying to reduce my "stash" so I'll have more room for all the new DSPs coming July 1st.
Card Recipe:
Card Stock - So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
DSP - Sweet Pea (no longer available - sorry)

Stamps & Ink:
Good Neighbors, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Relay for Life Silent Auction Item

Here is the set I put together for the Relay Auction.  It's a dozen of all you see everything is neatly stacked in the box.  It was super fun to put together!

PPA 45 - An Inspired Challenge

I had a bunch of graduation cards to make this year.  I used this week's PPA challenge to create a more masculine one.  Here is it:

Stamping 411 - Sketch

Happy Graduation!  I needed quite a few graduation cards this year.  The Stamping 411 sketch came in very handy.  Here are two cards I put together:

Ice Cream, Presents & Cake OH MY!

It’s been a month since my last post – too long!  Life has been full to say the least.  Now I’m back on track. I am donating a silent auction item to our local Relay for Life event.  It’s the basics to start a birthday party – here is the invitation but it will also include thank you cards, party favors & hats.  I’ll post pictures of the finished project when it’s complete.
