Christmas in September Stamp & Swap

More Baby Cards

I did another baby card today. It is cased from atomicbutterfly on SCS.

The DP is from Basic Grey, the ribbon is Cosmo Cricket and the stamps, of course, are Stampin' Up! (r). Stamp sets include Buggies & Booties (retired 2007), So Many Sayings (current Hostess set), and Baroque Motifs.

I also did this card while trying a new technique called the criss cross card/envelope.

Thanks to a friend for the use of her punches. I'm definately going to have to invest in the scalloped punches. They are just too cute!

Baby Cards

So, I had baby cards on the agenda the past couple of days. Here are 4 that I've done.

The papers are not SU! but the stamp is from the SU! stamp set "Year after Year" (images copyright Stampin' Up!)

This is the boy version. . . stamp set is SU! "Year after Year" (images copyright Stampin' Up!)

This stamp is from a retired set that I just couldn't let go. It is Stampin' Up! (r) set "Favorite Teddy" (images copyright Stampin' Up!)

This is another retired stamp set that I couldn't let go of. The printed paper on this one is one of the new Stampin' Up! (r) Designer Double Sided papers "Outlaw" (images copyright Stampin' Up!)

Okay, I had a little more time tonight to do more of the recipe pages. These will be the last pages I post on the blog. The rest of the pages will be uploaded as available HERE

Also, per a request below are full pictures to give you a better idea of the entire book. I love the way it sits. It was one of my many cheap finds from

I also wanted to share this card I put together for a birthday party this weekend.

And as always . . . THANKS FOR LOOKING!

Sorry I've been gone so long. . . . work has been crazy and we also took a family vacation. I did however, get to sit down last night and work on my family scrapped recipe book. The papers used here are NOT Stampin' Up! (r). If you have any questions on particular supplies please let me know.

I still haven't completed the cover of my book. I've got some ideas, but one thing I'm concerned about it that I'm a dirty cook. I really want to protect the cover from grease, flour, etc. Vote to help me decide how to protect my cookbook.
