February Stamp Club!!

The ladies and I had a fabulous time last night at our February Stamp Club. We stamped, chatted and of course had chocolate, what more could you ask for? We "oohed" and "aahed" over all the new goodies in the Occasions Mini Catalog and of course the wish lists were growing.

We started the night by making a beautiful pouch (shown at the Anaheim SU! Regional Conference). Thank you Lynda Glassmoyer for your directions (and showing me how to make this). It was a bit of a challenge at first but everyone quickly caught on. We even added a fun new way of dressing it up and opening it. The best part is that you can open the pouch to reveal the 'card' section on the inside. This is a great little gift to say thank you with! If you would like directions on this pouch please contact me and we will set up a time to get together!

The recipe is: Stamps: Lots of Thoughts (SAB Set); Cardstock: Bashful Blue; DSP: Le Jardin; Embellishments: Grosgrain Ribbon-Bashful Blue; Tools: Crop-A-Dile; Accessories: Medium Cellophane bags and mini chocolate bars.

This month's Technique was "Watercoloring", a basic technique I know, but we had so much fun! I decided to use a set from the Occasions Mini -- Sassy Suzie. As soon as I saw this set I knew that I had to have it! I love it! I knew my Stamp Club members would enjoy the sassy sayings just as much as I did. I was right! I CASEd this card off of Split Coast Stampers but I don't know the name of the original artist. I adjusted and tweaked the card for me and my club. Here is the final result:

Recipe: Stamps: Sassy Suzie and Polka Dots & Petals, Cardstock: Pink Passion, Basic Black and Whisper White; Ink: Basic Black and too many others to remember; Emeblishments: Gingham Black and white ribbon.



Busy, Busy, Busy!

I have been very busy with kids, husband, school and all that but I have made time for stamping. I just finished a stack of these criss-cross cards for my daughter's birthday invitations. I love the cutie pie paper and so does she. The colors are so much fun and girly at the same time. Completely my daughter! I think I am going to use the cutie pie paper for her birthday scrapbook pages as well.

The recipe is: Paper: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, and So Saffron. DSP: Cutie Pie. Ribbon: Bashful Blue Grosgrain.
The Red flower and striped brad are not Stampin' Up! they are just some accessories I had lying around that looked perfect. If you want the tutorial for this than go to: Criss Cross Card and you will find the complete directions. Enjoy!
