Fall Card & Holiday Illusion Card

This is a Christmas card I put together for a home party this past weekend. I love the Illusions stamp set and really have been challenged to make cards that I like using the set. The colors are Wild Wasabi and Real Red.

Thanks again to Beate for another wonderful weekend challenge. This is such an easy card, with a great look. I had to borrow the stamp set from my mother (**thanks!**) and this is the first thing I've put together actually using the set. I'm thinking this will be a great card for my stamp club. Colors are old olive, more mustard, and choc chip.

It's hard to see in the picture, but one of my favorite things about this card is the depth. . . maybe this picture will help a little.

As always, thanks for looking!

Baby Scrapbooking

Today I was invited to take part in a Baby Scrapbook Shower. We had tons of fun. After the party I realized that I was busy helping everyone else and didn't get to make any pages of my own for our friend. So, these are the pages I've made that I am going to take to her.

This page has the new larger grossgrain ribbon in Olive, DS paper is "Cutie Pie" and the stickers are from a non-SU set.

I know that I'll get in trouble for this one :) but I thought it was cute anyway. The DS paper and stickers are non-SU.

I really am enjoying the 12 X 12 pages much more than before. I even went through my old scrapbook from college the other day to see if I could salvage some of those pictures for my new scrapbooks. Next on the "To Do List". . . . Clean my craft space!!!!!!

Mini Card & Scrapbook Page

Some of you will see these Thank you cards when you pick up your product from last week's Stamp Club. I was really excited to get my Illuminations set in today and couldn't wait to get some ink on the rubber. These are probably some of the most simple cards I've ever made, but I still think they look great. These are 2 3/4 X 4 1/4 cards. I am using them to put in product bags for my customers right now, but I think they would also work well for Christmas Gifts. Colors are Old Olive and Basic Brown.

In the past some of you may have heard me mention that I don't really like doing 12 X 12 scrapbook pages. I prefer the 6 X 6 books and I like creating the pages much better. Well. . . . it's been a while but after scheduling a couple of scrapbook classes and getting in the new Simply Scrappin' (r) set "Home Again", I had to try a 12 X 12 page. I'm open to critiques. . .

As always, Thanks for Looking!

Better Late than Never

Here are some new pictures. Sorry again for the delay, I did however get my kitchen painted this weekend! :)

These are two of the cards that we did for World Card Making Day. Thanks to everyone who attended.

This card base is Blush Blossom and the stamps come from the "Doodle This" and "Baroque Motifs" sets. The flower is 3 layers with Pixie Pink, Blush Blossom and Chocolate Chip (yummy). I love this card!

The stamp set is "Year After Year" and the DS paper is "Cutie Pie". Coordinating ribbon is celery placed on a strip of Old Olive paper. **Secret Note** - I don't have the ticket corner punch so I used my 3/4" circle punch to create the same effect on the corners of the white card stock. SSSSHHHHHH!

As always, thank so much for your patience and Thanks for looking!

I just realized that I haven't posted anything new in over 2 weeks (at least with pictures). I will make myself find time tomorrow night to upload new pictures and project. Please forgive me, it's been crazy around my house. I've had a couple of parties and will show you the new cards we've put together. See you tomorrow!

And the prize goes to. . . .

I've come to a strange conclusion. . . either the past month was a bad time for a contest (travels, school starting, etc) or the 4 responders have clicked on my website ALOT. ;)

Anyway, with only 4 responders, I have decided to give 4 gifts. Each of you will recieve 2 6X6 pieces of paper of each of the designs from the Designer Series Paper "Wintergreen" (total of 12 6X6 sheets). Thanks so much for your patronage. Please don't forget to send me your address so that I may ship your package out, and make sure to send pictures of what you make with your gift.

Thanks again for looking! And keep watching for more contests to come!
