Sweet Sunday..

Hi everyone! I'm back with another really fun card to show you all. This card was made using the technique called the "Amazing Fold Card." That's what I've heard it called, but I'm sure there are other names. It is a super cute card; it looks a little challenging, but once you get going it isn't bad at all!

Ooops! The 2nd picture should be rotated, but you can still get the picture! The top pic shows what the card looks like when it is finished. The 2nd one shows the card once it is opened. It's a really cute little card and it's different; you can't buy this! I got the directions from Stampin' Up!. Also, all of the products are SU!. Hope you enjoy this! I think it's just adorable!!

Stamp sets: Awash with Flowers, Just Believe (Friends sentiment)
Cardstock: Rose Red, Perfect Plum (DSP), Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla
Inks: Same as above
Accessories: Early Espresso tafetta ribbon which is retired :(, Basic Pearls, Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Modern Label punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

Friday Favorite...

Hi everyone! I'm back for my next Friday Favorite! Today's product is the Paper Piercing Tool. This is one of my favorite items!! It took me FOREVER to finally decide to buy one. I don't know what I was thinking!! It is an awesome product! It's great for piercing holes for brads, picking up the Rhinestones and Pearls, pushing ribbon through a hole, making holes on your cards, etc. The possibilities are endless for this little guy! It's definitely something everyone needs in their craft rooms! Hope you enjoy it! If you would like to purchase this awesome tool, the item number is #116631 and it is ONLY $3.50! That's a steal! Thanks for looking and check back soon!

Swap cards from fellow demos...

Hi everyone! I'm back today to share a few cards I received from the demo meeting swap. Hope you like them! These are some cute cards!
This is Jenny Young's card. Too cute!

This card is by Jana Fetch. This is an adorable card. There's so much detail in this!! She even sewed vellum together to make an envelope. The rhinestone was colored with a blue Sharpie marker...how cool is that?!

This card was designed by a new demo in the group, Theresa. I really can't remember what her last name is...sorry!!! :( But, this is such a cute card!

Okay...those are just three of the great cards I received in this swap. Hopefully I'll be back to share some more with all of you! Be on the lookout for new card samples from me and hopefully a new tutorial! :) Thanks for stopping by!

Demo meeting swaps and projects!

Hi everyone! I'm back today to share pics of cards that I received from my demo meeting card swap. I'm also going to share the two projects that we made at the meeting. These meetings are filled with such great ideas and inspiration!! Ok...onto the good stuff! :)

Here is my swap:
Stamp sets: Day of Gratitude
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, First Edition DSP, and Crumb Cake
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green, and Early Espresso
Accessories: Scallop Square die, Daffodil Delight grosgrain ribbon, Pumpkin Pie taffeta ribbon, Pearls, Scallop Oval punch, and Smooch Spritz

This next is a project that we designed by Kim Peles...such a cute project! It uses the Blossom Box die for the Big Shot. It would be good to use for some kind of a favor!

The next project was thought of my Linda Pastva-Callahan. This was made using the Matchbox Die for the Big Shot. I LOVE this thing! I'm pretty sure the Matchbox die is going to be mine soooon!! This project would be perfect as a wedding shower or baby shower favor. Very cute!

I just love this little box! It's adorable! And it's super easy to make. How cute is that little piece of DSP wrapped around the box?! Now's a great time to stock up on that DSP...it's buy 3 get 1 FREE! Awesome deal! :) Contact me for more info, or shop online in my SU! store! Hope you enjoyed these projects today. I'll be back soon to share some swaps that I received from other demos! Thanks for stopping by!
