Tart & Tangy

This is one of my favorite sets. I think of Summer, picnics, homemade lemonade and all the great things Spring and Summer bring. I also think this this set is perfect for teacher cards. I am very disappointed that they chose to retire this fabulous paper called Summer picnic, but what can I do. I know I will have to get some more of it somewhere as I plan on using this set for a long time. The box is designed to fit the 3x3 note cards and you can get 10 or 12 notes with envelopes in it.

Love You Much Bundle

I received my Love You Much Bundle on Friday and I have had a great time this past weekend playing with the stamps and paper in this set. I have to say that "I LOVE IT". I found the set easy to work with and I was able to come up with card ideas quite easily. I see so much potential for this set. Anniversaries, Valentines, Birthdays and Just because cards. The Designer Series Paper is one of my favorites from the new catalog. I just love stripes and this set of papers has 3 different striped papers and they are all gorgeous! The pirouette pink and riding hood red papers have flowers on them and it is subtle, but very beautiful. I am looking forward to coming up with other ideas for this set. And for those of you that joined me in the Striped ribbon share; the pirouette pink and Riding hood red ribbons match the papers in this set.

Dates: December 23, 2008 - January 31, 2009

Valentine Heart box tutorial

After many requests for the directions for my Valentine Heart box I have made another one of my video tutorials. Sorry it has taken so long to get it posted. The systems seem to be so slow and it has taken me several tries and all day to get it uploaded. This is a great little box for the someone special in your life. It is made with Stampin' Up!s Pretty in Pink DSP and the matching cardstock. I also used sticky strip and double sided white satin ribbon. I have so many other ideas I want to share with you for Valentine's Day and I am trying to decide what little something I am going to make for my Son's class and Teacher and as soon as I have it completed I will post it. If you like the videos please take a moment to leave comments, feedback or suggestions for what you would like to see next.

Valentine's Day

As you know Valentine's Day is right around the corner and handmade cards to your loved ones is a wonderful way to let them know how much they mean to you! The Love You Much valentine Bundle is a fabulous set and a great value not only for Valentine's Day cards, but Anniversary, Birthday, Love notes and more. This set has endless possibilities and at 20% off it is a great deal! While I am waiting for my set to arrive I thought I would use another set that just screams Valentines, Anniversary and more and that is the Always stamp set. Below are some cards I made today using the Always stamp set and I really love the heart in this set. I see so many possibilities for it and the bird and did you know that birds are the hot new design element this year? Take a look around and you will see them everywhere. I hope you like the cards and I look forward to sharing more of my creations with you. On a side note. I do want to mention that a couple of the cards are CASED from SCS. Just love all the inspiration over there!
