Global Design Project #GDP074 - Perfect Mix


I've been busy creating for a stamp class Tuesday night and planning for a March event.  But once in awhile, it's fun to have someone tell me what to make.  When I'm needing a little break and to revive my creativity, I like to participate in a challenge. I knew I wanted to use my new Perfect Mix stamp set, and this Global Design Project #GDP074 was right up my alley.

I used a banner from the Lots of Labels Framelits and did some paper piecing for the mixing bowl.  After adding a little Whisper White Baker's Twine, I was done.  Quick and easy.  Thanks Global Design Team for the inspiration!

Beautiful You Reflection Technique


For anyone who has been stamping for awhile, the reflection technique has been around.  But not many stamp sets lend themselves to the technique.  I've used Lovely as a Tree several times, but now Beautiful You has changed all of that!  I started out with the umbrella lady, but then I decided to try the dancing lady.  I can't decide which one I like the best.  So Tuesday night, my stampers get to choose.

Cool Treats Holder


Doesn't this paper and stamp set just make you think about warm weather?  It's going to be record breaking warm today so I'm getting my stamping done this morning and plan some yard work for this afternoon.

We'll be making this clever little box Tuesday night at my stamp class.  The Cool Treats stamp set and product suite is about my all time favorite in this catalog!

Tasty Trucks Birthday



Oh my goodness!  Tasty Trucks was one of my two favorite Sale-A-Bration sets the first time I saw the catalog.  I chose to use that set for a demonstrator swap card that I created back in December, but this one was for last weekend's Stamp-a-Stack.  We were already using the watercolor pencils with a blender pen so I decided we should keep with the blender pen and use the stamp pads.   For anyone who had never used the blender pen, it was a great chance to learn a couple of different ways to use it.

Paper Pumpkin Valentines

Thanks to My Paper Pumpkin, I put my valentines together pretty quickly for my class last night.  I altered the set a little and left off the wooden arrows.  I've seen them tear into a handmade project pretty quickly so I knew they wouldn't be missed.

Sealed with Love Valentine


I spent some time this weekend getting ready for my Stamp-a-Stack next weekend.  I am pretty pleased with my cards this month and we will be doing 4 designs instead of the usual 3.  Here is the Valentine card we'll be doing.


Here's a close-up of the envelope.  Such a fun little detail!

Valentine Sampler Sealed with Love

I had my stampers here last weekend for team meeting.  One of our Make-n-takes involved a tub of valentine supplies. We all work together and created this fun sampler.

Thank You Notes with Scraps


Thanks to the icy weather before Christmas, I'm going back to school and will be having a Christmas party with my students on our first day. I wanted to be prepared with thank you notes since we are well past Christmas.  How do you use your scraps? I used a piece of 3 1/4 x 2 3/4 DSP on a note card.  It's a quick thank you card and a simple way to use up some scraps. If you're using card stock and standard envelopes, make your center image a little bit bigger or post it in the upper half of the card.

Online Ordering Thank You Gifts

Happy New Year!  I am looking forward to a new year of stamping and scrapbooking!  I'm also looking forward to my new thank you gifts to customers who order $40 or more online.  If you are a scrapbooker, I will send you the pieces to create a quick 2 page 12 x 12 layout.  All you'll have to do is drop in photos and create your title.  I'll send you a picture of my finished layout and the pieces you need to duplicate the page.  And each month, there will be a new layout!!  Be sure to use the hostess code that can be found in the upper left-hand corner of this page.  

What about those of you who don't scrapbook?  I haven't forgotten about you!  I will send you a couple of finished cards or card kits at the end of each month.  No two will be alike!
