March Calendar Entry

March always yields the color green, So decided to use up some Greenhouse Gala DSP for this months Calendar Scrap. I used the DSP for the background , and layered with Chocolate Chip CS and Baja Breeze CS. I punched out 2 Fancy Flowers and cut by hand a flower from the DSP, and added a chocolate chip brad for the center of the flower. I also punched out the strip with Baja Breeze using our scalloped ribbon punch.

Check back tomorrow for April..

Stampin'UP! Calendar

Ok, so I so didn't make 12 posts over the Christmas Holiday.. I'm a little busy this time of year:) But I have made up for it! I just finished a calendar using the Days-To-Remember Flip Calendar from Stampin'UP! I think it came out really nice, and can't wait to demo it at a friends birthday party!! Hope we can complete it in 3 hrs:) Today I am posting January:
Ok, so the one the ladies at the birthday party will not have the flowers in the background:) I accidentaly picked up the wrong stamp, and in my stamping stupor didn't realize it wasn't the snowflake stamp and just stamped away.. I actually don't think it looks that bad, just not what I wanted for January.
I used Marina Mist ink, Snowflake punch, small oval punch, scalloped punch, boho punch, and of course had to add the bling:)
Come back tomorrow for February!

Christmas Gift Card Holder

This Gift Card Holder is actually made with SU Basket and Blooms Big Shot Die. I just sticky taped the two sides together instead of making the whole basket. If you put the tape on the bottom it becomes a pocket and holds a gift card which you can then hang on the tree!! SUPER CUTE!! I used Soft Suede CS and than stamped with Soft Suede Ink a snowflake stamp from Christmas SS. I punched out the Scalloped Circle in Always Artichoke , and punched out the For You ( Vintage Label SS) with the large circle punch. I than tied the victorian ribbon around the handle. Another great way to use this die!!

Hope your all close to getting ready for Christmas!! Finished up teachers goodies today, and goodies for my club ladies.. Will post pic tomorrow... oh no no tomorrow. I'm off to Mexico for a day mission trip to Aqua Prieta. We get to give presents to the kids and play games with them.. Fun!!

This Cute little box is made very simply with Cherry Cobbler CS, and the Candy Candy DSP paper from Holiday Mini. I also used the snowflake punch and some Chocolate Chip ribbon.

Measurements are 7 1/4 X 71/4 for bottom box. Score all sides at 2 inches.
Top of lid is 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 Score all sides at 1 inch.

Box is then folded with sides coming in at each other than folded over to the middle and attached with a brad, so you don't need any tape on the bottom unless you want to add so extra strength ..than you can add a couple of strips of sticky tape to sides.
For Lid cut into score lines to middle and adhere all side with Stick Tape. Add DSP and Wala!!
Holds 6 3X3 cards, and envelopes.

I love how each ladie made them theirs , and all the creativity it sparks. We had such a good time just being together on a beautiful Saturday ! Can't wait till March.
This are the ladies kicking it up with the Big Shot and the Cricut machine.. I love how paper and toys can add up to so much fun and laughter!!

These are two wonderful sisters , Carla and Debra, who love to scrap, so we had a good time.. Seems like the cropping portion didn't last long enough,, so I may have to seperate out the crop from the camp:)

Thank you ladies,

You so made my day!!

This is the layout that used the Friend stamp.. I used watercolors to color the flower, then used glitter on the middle. Versamarked the flower on the Baja Breeze. You can't  see it really well, but also used the mat piercer around the edges of the Pear Pizazz. Love the SU ribbon.. I stick it on everthing.. I also added the Pearl bling in the left hand corner of hte Pear Pizazz to even it out.

Guys Cards

Ok, one of the hardest things to do in carding/scrapping is trying to come up with creative cards and pages for our guys.. These two cards are just a couple of ideas to show some of the  Stampin'UP! Stamp sets.
This card is a graduation card for a friend of ours in Nebraska... ( Congratulations Sean!!) I used the Fourth of July stamp set out of our new Summer mini as the Stars, and used the Well Scripted stamp set for the greeting. Stamped out 4 stars, and layered them with a brad. Super easy, super cute! What do you think?? Let me know.. As Father's Day approaches this would work well for a card, or you could blow up the idea for a layout using more stars:) Try it~~

This second card is a birthday card for my nephew Joshua.. It uses the baseball stamp set, and I versamarked the hats on the back , then stamped out the baseball and bat. I used the Well Scripted stamp set for the greeting, and stamped the baseballs on Old Olive. Layered and walaa!! There ya go.. Super easy.
