Do you want to make one of these Family Frames? Have you RSVP’d for this class? Please click here for class details. If you would like to attend, please let me know how many you plan on making, and which color. I must know by Wednesday so that I can cut paper and prepare all of the supplies.
Today’s card was one of our projects from Stamp Club last week. We used the Modern Mosaic Stamp Set, Punch, and Embossing Folder — The Modern Mosaic Trio! These 3 items work together beautifully, and have quickly become very popular new products. I also incorporated a strip of a new DSP collection, Quatrefancy, and lots of new In Colors. And how about the new little ruffle ribbon peeking out from under the greeting? The feminine side of me really likes this new product!
If you like the looks of these words, you’ll want to take advantage of this set while it is on sale 25% off. There are 3 word sets on sale, so take a look HERE and see what you think!
Today’s card is CASED from one of my fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators, Amy Storrie, who is also one of my Sorority Sisters from my Baylor days! We reconnected years ago when we noticed each other at a Stampin’ Up! event. Amy is a fantastic demonstrator who lives in McKinney, TX and is currently on the Stampin’ Up! Advisory Board. Yes, I feel like I know someone famous! And I knew her before she became famous – ha! Her version of this card can be seen on her amazing blog, Stamped with Joy, but she used our new DSP called Modern Medley. I didn’t have that, so I improvised with our Neutrals Paper Stack and it worked just fine. However, her card has totally convinced me to order that DSP as soon as possible. Other items used for this card include: A Fitting Occasion, Label Love, and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamps sets, Label Love and 1″ Circle punches, Gumball Green Ink & Cardstock, Dimensionals, Mini Silver Brads, Black StazOn ink and Basic Gray Ink. In the midst of posting this photo, I just realized the words are upside down on the top square. OOPS!
Happy Father’s Day to my wonderful husband and awesome father to our 3 girls and 18 foster children!
I stumbled up on the most adorable (and EASY) way to make a perfect paper bow! I just knew my Club Ladies would like this idea, and sure enough, they loved it! Tonight was our last formal club gathering until the end of summer, but we will start up again in late August. If you would like to join us in August, please let me know.
You can find the “perfect paper bow” instructions from Elizabeth Price’s blog, Seeing Ink Spots. She is in the upline (or sideline) of my fellow demonstrators in Florida, and I have always loved her work. This may be something that you’ve seen in a lot of different places, but its a first for me. I’m hoping you will give this technique a try and be inspired like me!
The Designer Paper that I used is a retired product, sorry! The focal image is from Sketched Birthday — and I was reminded how thankful I am for Stampin’ Up!’s generosity. We received this stamp at Leadership this past January, and I had forgotten that it was going to be in the new catalog. This is my first time to use it, but I think it added the perfect touch to the card.
Today’s card was made a few months ago……and it has some Retired products on it, but I found it when I was sorting through some photos on my iPhone. I took this card to a baby shower a few months ago, and forgot to photograph it before taking it to the shower. I took it out of the gift bag and took this photo in my car! The color isn’t the best, but I liked how sweet the card turned out. I’m really going to miss the “rainbow” colors that this DSP from the Spring Catalog had in it’s collection. So sweet and cheerful. This stamp image is from Easy Events (now retired) but if you decide you want this set, I have mine for sale. I’ll get my sets listed on my Etsy store in the next week or two.
If you haven’t looked at the new class that I’m offering on the 21st and the 22nd, you will want to scroll on down to the next post. The Family Frame project is going to be very popular, and I’ve already had several RSVPs. Please let me know if you plan on attending and also what color you’d like to make.
Have a great week!

I want to show you the adorabel pouch that I received from my partner who lives in Canada. She did a fantastic job! But first, a reminder that I will be having a class on Sunday afternoon from 3-5 p.m. making 5 cards from the new catalog and using new In Colors. Please RSVP if you are planning on attending. You can see all the details for this FREE class on my last blog post.
Also, I have decided to list a great deal of my retired stamp sets on my Etsy site. Last weekend, I found time to list most of my retired alphabet stamps. If you are interested in seeing what’s there, please check it out HERE or following the link on the right sidebar.
Both sides of my zipper pouch were so creative, and suited my tastes just perfectly! The small Dresden Plate (above) used 30′s fabrics — which are some of my all-time favorites. Such gorgous quilting, as well as the color combos shown below — using PINKS in every color of the spectrum. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect pouch for me!
She also threw in some fabrics, buttons, zippers, and a cute notecard. Who could ask for more?
I have now done 3 round of the Pretty Little Pouch Swap. I have thoroughly enjoyed this great and can’t wait for the next round!
