New Product

TGIF! Good morning I have a couple of cute cards to share with you today. It's been so much fun using Stampin' Ups new products.

Valentine Card


To make this card I used the new #137779 Stacked with Love DSP, #133781 What's Up punch, #133519 Banner Punch and the heart is from the #137547 Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. This is such a versatile framelit with 12 pieces.

Hello Card


The #137363 Hello You Thinlit Dies was used for this card. I just love this playful font. The other words included in this set are: You, Thanks and Happy. It took me about 5 min. to make this card and was super simple! TIP: Don't forget to use wax paper before placing your cardstock on the thinlit. It is much easier to remove the phrase:o).

Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!

Weekend Retreat

Happy Tuesday! I think everyone needs a little down time after the holidays. So this past weekend I went on a retreat with some friends and did lots of crafting!

Pinecove




Sunsets at the Bluffs!


On the way we stopped in Canton and did some shopping and found lots of great deals.



Here we are in front of our cabin. Julie, Ann, Mary and Me.



My first project was thank you cards. I did not send any thank you cards for my birthday gifts in Sept. YIKES!!! Better late than never:o).

 My Stash



Next, I opened up my box of goodies from Stampin' Up...woo hoo!


Valentine Treat Bag



I was so excited to use our new framelit and made this bag for Valentine's Day.

The Snowflake

Hello! Hello! Just taking a little break to post some cute little cards in honor of our freezing temperatures!

Snowflake Cards



To make these cards I used the snowflake stamp from the #135116 Nature's Peace stamp set, #102283 VersaMark pad, #109132 white embossing powder, #133520 Decorative Dots embossing folder, #119861 1 1/4" circle punch and scraps of cardstock.


Next, I decided to use a single snowflake. I used the #119854 1 3/4 Scallop Circle to back the snowflake and a little bling! in the middle with the #133203 Just Sayin' stamp set...super simple, super cute!



Here I reversed the colors giving you another look for the card!



Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!
