Those were the Snowflake Soiree in clear 127925 and Christmas Star in clear 134813 I also got the Natural Ribbon 7/8 Trim 129287 Mini Muslin Bags 132180 Personalized Name Stamp Casual Monogram 131146 Real Red Reinker 103287 and cardstock in Very Vanilla 101650 and Whisper White 100730 What have you bought recently?

Oh Baby!

Oh baby card
Last week I was invited to a baby shower. My youth minister and his wife are expecting a baby in December. I wanted to make more things for them like a baby album but ran out of time. So I made them a card using mostly retired product and my new favorite the Envelope Punch Board. 133774 What have you made with the Envelope Punch Board? If you’d like to order one you can do so here. Online Store

Merry Little Christmas

Have Yourself a Merry Little ChristmasHope Your Christmas is Snow Much Fun
Last Saturday I had a group of ladies over to work on the Merry Little Christmas Simply Created Card Kit. I went ahead and got the bundle which came with the Merry Little Christmas Stamp Set. Here’s the bundle number W-131826 C 131829. I thought I’d share the samples I made to showcase what you can do with this kit. In the first picture the one without the sweater trim is the basic card you can make with the kit. I added my own special touch by adding the sweater trim from last year’s holiday kit as well as a retired stamp set in the 2nd picture. It was a lot of fun to make these cards and a chance to be with those that like to create. Christmas is 2 months away. Are you ready? Thanks for stopping by!

Oh Baby!

Oh Baby!
I just wanted to share a quick post of what I am working on today. I got asked to help make baby shower favors. So this is a practice example of what I came up with. This is the Oh Baby! single stamp using the Strawberry Slush ink and using the Top Note die.  I am thinking of blinging out the favor I make for Mom to be with our pearls or rhinestones. I haven’t decided yet. What are you working on this World Cardmaking Day?
