For Father

I so struggle with watercoloring and I so need the practice. This is the second card we will be doing for our club day to practice watercoloring. I used the Wanted stamp set to give the Western Sky paper a splash of brown and then the For Father stamp for the main image. This was watercolored with the watercolor pencils.

True Friend

Thank you Brandi!!! I received some cards from Brandi from a meeting that I could not attend. I absolutely fell in love with this card. I needed a quick thank you card that I could mass produce to send out to my JCPenney Merchants. I thought this one would be perfect. I was able to make 20 of them. Now I really wish I could get some more Apple Cider Paper :)

Baby Shower Favors

The one thing I did get accomplished this weekend... Well almost. I have about another 2 dozen to make :) My niece had her first baby a couple weeks ago. Prepping for her baby shower and made these cute little York Peppermint Patties. I love the scallop punch. It really dresses up projects.

For Father

I cased this card from SCS. I wanted to teach my customers how to watercolor so this is one of the cards we will be making for this months club day. Love this puppy. Hoping to get the second project created and cut tonight :)

Prepping the Stampin Area

I am turning the family room into a stamping area. A place where we can comfortably hold classes and club days... So I found these wall hangings at IKEA. Got them put up today. I will change the cards out periodically. One small dent in prepping this area :)

Bodacious Bouquet 12x12 2 page spread

I really loved these scrapbook pages. We made these for club last summer when the set was still current. It was a great way to show them how to make your own designer paper.

Special Delivery Girl 9x9 Chipboard Album

I don't know why my pictures are sideways. Went into the file to fix them and the file is correct. Can't seem to flip them back the right way. My niece had her first baby tonight - Emma Rose. So I decided to make a 9x9 chipboard book for her new baby using the Simply Scrapin Kit - Specially Delivery girl. The colors in this kit is Sahara Sand, River Rock, Apricot Appeal and Groovy Guava. The photes look so different than they do in real life. In the pictures it looks more orange. But anyway - wanted to ge this out there. I really like these albums. I want to try a few more. You just have to be really careful because it is not very forgiving if you make a mistake. I plan to take this to her tomorrow but then take it back to use a a sample for my class - before returning it to her :)

A Good Egg

This is a picture of the items we made at our Easter Stamp Camp. I loved them all but especially the scrapbook page. This used the Good Egg stamp set and the Spring Fling paper.

Big Birthday Candle

I have been so bad at getting birthday cards done this year. I go to family events with no card in hand most of the time. So this trip (I travel almost weekly) I decided that I would work on some cards. I totally cased this off of splitcoast stampers but I must say I really like it. I am making 20 of them so I have some on hand. I will probably pick one other design to make next trip so I have a couple to choose from. They are taking a little longer than expected but it will sure be nice to have. 1 down - 19 to go :)

Garden Whimsy CD Holders

I just love the Garden Whimsy set. We made a WOW card at convention last year, with our upline, using this set. Thanks Brandi - you sold me on this set. This is one of the first projects I made since I received my set. I used it to put in CD pictures from Convention 2007 and others went out as gifts.

Garden Whimsy Card/Tag Class

This is the last set that I am making for our class. It is made with Garden Whimsy and the Cutie Pie Paper. I really loved the way they all turned out. People will have their choice as to which color they want - Brilliant Blue or Rose Red. And then they can choose which stamp set they would like to use. This will be offered as one of our June classes. Out of the 3 which one do you like best?
