New Class to go Kit - Simple Friendship

The neutral colors of the Bella Bleu DP combined with the Simple Friendship stamp set give this card set a vintage feel that brings us back to the days when sending hand-written notes to our friends and loved ones was common. In this class you’ll create a card portfolio and 4 standard-sized cards.

Introducing Something New- Stamp set of the Week

Introducing something new I am going to give a try: I would like to showcase a different Stamp set from Stampin Up every week. This week is one I hate to see retire, it's so pretty and versatile: Scene in a Garden

The first card is made with To the Nines Specialty Designer Series Paper, and features the word window punch and aqua marker. Don't you just love the little rain boots?

The second card features Parisian Breeze Designer Series Paper and Baja Breeze ribbon, both of which are also retiring this month.

I water colored the ground on both of these cards with the aqua painter and the new Soft Suede ink...

I will be back later with some more Scene in a Garden samples, in the mean time, what last chance set would you like to see featured next week?

Wanna grab Scene in a garden, before its gone? You can get it here!

Paper Displays

I was working on Paper Displays for an upcoming craft show. I really liked the ones that I made for my binder, but at a craft show, I need something that will grab the attention more quickly than getting them getting customers to look at a binder, so I made up these quilt cards and used the new modern label punch to label the paper line. They arent as pretty as some of the others I made, but, I was able to get one of each papers, and both sides on there which make it perfect for display. I purchased a tri-fold display board at walmart and will put these on the board with some of my upcoming class flyers.
