Blendabilities will be available late June or early July!

From left to right, top to bottom: Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Old Olive, Night of Navy, Rich Razzleberry, Wisteria Wonder, Smokey Slate and Crumb Cake Assortments
As a demonstrator, I can preorder these now so that I will have them for my class on July 8th.  My dilemma is what colors to choose?  They are all amazing!  We will be making 4 notecards with a flower on them.  We will be coloring the flower using the Blendabilities markers.  I'm thinking to go with Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, and Cherry Cobbler for the flowers, Daffodil Delight for the centers of the flowers and Old Olive for the leaves.  What do you think??

Fourth of July Card Hybrid Card!

I had so much fun making this hybrid card using some of the great stamp sets and fonts from My Digital Studio!  I also got to use my new Fringe Scissors to make the flowers.  I hot glued them on so they will stick really well to the card.

We will be making this card as an added bonus at my Dad's and Grads class!

Materials Used: Real Red, Night of Navy, Crumb Cake and Whisper White Cardstock, Fringe Scissors, MDS, Star Punch (new catalog), Real Red 1/4" in Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Rhinestone Jewels

Dad and Grad Class!

Here's some of the projects we'll be making at my Dad and Grads class the second Tuesday night in June!  I just love the Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit.  It comes with 20 cards, stickers, stamps and everything you need to make these great projects.  You don't even need Snail Adhesive!

 Below is a belly band I made cutting one of the cards from the kit and half and then scoring it on either side at 3/8".  Then I added sticky strip and secured one to the other and decorated it!  I'm giving the two chocolate bars to Marc and Seth, friends of ours whose sons are graduating high school this year.

Work of Art Wood Block Configuration

Somebody from our Luv to Stamp Group asked "How do you get the Work of Art Blocks back into their box after you;ve used them.  So I thought I better take a picture...

So that's it!  That's how it's done.  We will be using this stamp set at my Open House New Catalog Workshop and will be available for order on JUNE 2nd!

Teen Girls Afternoon of Stamping!

We had so much fun stamping together with the teen girls from my church last Saturday!  They are so creative.  Here are some of the samples of the cards we made using the photopolymer stamp sets, the Faces and Sweetie Pie Frames.

 We also made Mother's Day Corsages as gifts for their moms!

Bouquet for Angelina

My niece, Angelina, performed on Mother's Day for a local choir she sings at and I made her a bouquet out of the Spiral Flower Die to give to her after the show.  She loved it!

I used the retired in-colors for the flowers; Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals and Midnight Muse

Treat Boxes made with Project Life Everyday Adventure Cards!

Two of my friends' children had birthdays last week so I needed a quick and inexpensive gift idea.  I got the idea to make these two treat bags after watching the Catalog Premier video.  They even gave us the dimensions to use so I made my own sample of that below.
For the gray striped goodie bag I used one of the large cards from the Project Life Everyday Adventure Cards.  Even though these cards are about a 1/2" too short, I loved the design and had to use it anyway.  So I added washi tape in the back to close it.

I made this treat bag using the Fresh Prints DS Paper Stack papers.  This paper is the exact size you need to make this treat bag, 5" x 7".

Here's how I cut and scored the 5" X 7" paper.  I used snail adhesive to secure the bottom flap closed.  By the way, they loved their gifts as one's a marathon racer and the other likes sugar free chewing gum :).

Project Life Everyday Adventure Cards!

I love Project Life!  Not only can you use the Notecards and Accessories to make great scrap book pages but you can make cards, too!  It is so fun and easy and the design possibilities are endless!
I really don't know which one is my favorite.
I love the Hi card and check out the great button that came in the accessory pack.

Best Day Ever can be given for a birthday card or graduation.  The washi tape also came in the accessory pack.

I love the colors on this card, Strawberry Slush, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizazz, Bermuda Bay and Basic Black.

The camera button also came in the accessory pack.

Love the colors on this card.  You can order your Project Life kits on June 2nd!
