New Stocking Die!

I received a wonderful swap card made by Barb Faulkner & I loved her idea of making a card from the stocking die! Had to break open the adorable new felt accents & this was a perfect place to use one. This was my project for my last downline get together.
I made another version for our last demo stamp n chat & I will share that one later.
Thanks for taking a peek at my blog today!

Recycled Butterfly!

I am kicking myself  right now for throwing out my daily Starbucks cup sleeves! I am sure most of you have seen the adorable corrugated cardboard embellies you can purchase here & there. Anyway today I was about to throw out my Starbucks cup & the kids had pulled the sleeve off & inside I saw the cutest corrugated cardboard! So off to my beloved Big Shot I went...

Now I am sure lots of other wonderful crafty gals have already had this idea but this is a first for me so humor me, ok? LOL! I have thought about using the boxes my SU products come in but then the embellishments are so bulky, which is ok if your not mailing the card. Anyway this works great for me since the sleeves are so thin plus the corrugated lines are a lot smaller. So Cute! Gotta Love Free Embellishments!  Hope you give this a try if you haven't already & I'd love to see what you've done with your recycled embellies! Post a link to your project in the comment section & I am going to put together some blog candy for my favorite one. I'll pick a winner on Friday 9/16. Good Luck!

Congrats Annette & Big News!

Ok here is the card I made for my friend, Annette, to congratulate her on the birth of her second grandson! I am so excited for her! Babies are so great!
I have one more card that I made for a friend that likes Marilyn.

I picked up the Marilyn stamp in Vegas awhile ago. If you haven't noticed I LOVE the Hand Penned Holidays set! I hope this set stays around for a long time & hopefully they'll have a hand penned all occassion set too! Ok now on to some Big News for me, I was contacted by Dawn Rapsas to be a guest designer for...

Squeel!!! So excited & honored to have been invited to be a part of such a talented group of gals!
Since I am an absolute PAPER ADDICT I am even more excited about not only creating something fabulous for you but also seeing all the amazing creations the other designers make for you! As a designer I have already gotten a sneak peek at some of the projects & they are BEAUTIFUL!

Paper Parade will be focusing on showcasing Stampin' Up! Paper from the USA/Canada 2011 - 2012 Idea Book & Catalog as well as the 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog!!

This is a HUGE Challenge to cover all the papers in 40+ projects...but all the Designers are way excited and are more than up for the challenge!! Keeping in mind that the most important element is the AWESOMENESS of the project, each Designer is working MAGIC with the Stampin' Up! Papers!!
