I couldn't wait to use this new background stamp, Medallion.  So pretty!  Perfect to use for the faux shaving cream technique (thanks, Tiffany!).  Used beautiful new In Colors Rich Razzleberry and Soft Suede.

Another Stamp Club project!  Love the embossing folders for the Big Shot.  The embossing is so much more POW!  I used the stamp set and introduced the Stamp-a-ma-jig to the girls for this one.  Some loved the stamp-a-ma-jig, others hated it.  I know how they feel, though.  I resisted it for a loooong time.  But, the more I use it, the more I love it.  Especially for those of  you who are perfectionists!

Sweet Treats!

How flippin' fun is this?!  I love these sweet treats cups on the Holiday Mini catalog!  I used the Sweet Centers stamp set and Cast-A-Spell DSP.  I used Tiffany's trick for the inside of the card (so you can get the treat out without destroying the card).  Love it!  Stamp Club girls loved it, too!!

Tri-Fold Shutter card

Here's one of the cards I did for my Stamp Clubs last month.  The technique was heat embossing and the card fold.  This kind of card looks so pretty opened up.  I will definitely be using this technique again.

Season of Friendship

One of my favorite stamp sets.  It's so versatile.  This was a  card I did for my Stamp Clubs.  I used the Sizzix Big Shot Top Note Die and embossing. 

Ignore the big Chocolate Chip ink mark in the upper right corner.  It accidently got extra ink on it during one of the club meeetings!

Scrapbook Event November 2009: Layout #3

Disclaimer:  this layout really isn't crooked IRL.  It's just shoddy photographer skills and even worse PSE skills (and a little bit of laziness)!  LOL!!

I used Thoroughly Modern DSP and the stamp set Flight of the Butterfly.  Sizzix Big Shot Decorative Elements in the corner and Go Go Boots for the title.

Pics are of my girlies from our annual Rock Park photo op from 2008.

Scrapbook Event November 2009: Layout #1

Tiffany and I had our Scrapbook Event on November 14 and it was another huge success!  We were just 1 or 2 people from selling out!  WooHoo!!  So, over the next several days I'll post my layouts from the event.  You can check out Tiffany's blog for all the layouts (hers and mine). 

This layout is using the Autumn Meadows DSP from the Holiday mini.  The pics in the mini do NOT give this paper justice at all.  It's beautiful in person.  Love the colors.  Stamping on the background is done with the Autumn Splendor stamp set from the Holiday mini catalog as well.  The leaves are done with the Sizzix Big Shot. 

Pictures are from Fall 2005!  Yep, that's right, I'm not caught up and I'm not worrying about it!  It just guarantees that I'll always have pictures to scrap!  :)

Wonderful You stationary

Yo.  Long time no talk.  Life without internet pretty much sucks.  I've always known how much I rely on it, but I think it's finally sinking in to Steve how much he relies on it as well.  I gotta get on when I can.  Sometimes the connection is super fab (like right now).  Other times, it's so ssssslllllloooooowwwww (like earlier in the evening).  And, more times than not, we can't even get on.  Totally sucks. 

I know I'm going to win the Worst Mother of the Year award for this, but we signed Mara up on facebook.  She's been dying to play all the games....FarmTown, Cafe World, Roller Coaster Kingdom.  It's a sickness that I've passed on to her.  Trust me, strict strict regulations are in place for her use of fb. 

Here is the stationary I recently made for my awesome step-Mom-in-law.  I used the retired set, Wonderful You.  Beautiful stamp set.  Bummed me out that it retired.  I guess I issued a challenge to myself and didn't know see how many punches I could use on one card.  Total is 6 punches to make that bad boy there.  That's my newest obsession.  I loved the stationary so much, I almost kept it for myself! LOL!! 

Enjoy.  Peace out.
