Easel Card

Good Morning,

Here is one of our stamp club projects from this month. It is an easel card. These are super easy to make, you just cut your piece of card stock the long way. Fold it in half and then fold the top in half again. Then you just add a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece onto the folded top piece. I make it sound more confusing than it actually is. Anyhow, try it and you'll love the results!

More fun today!

First of all, let me say that my three year old sweetheart/whiner has turned into a four year old diva! She insisted on wearing this vest to school this morning even though it is freezing out. After she put it on though she looked so darn cute that I had to take a picture. My friend Jennifer gave it to her and she thinks it's the coolest thing ever. Thank goodness we only run from the car into the building.

I got a box full of goodies today and had a ton of fun using them. This is a purse gift card holder that I made using the FREE Sale-a-bration paper, "Welcome Neighbor". The paper is adorable, my favorite part has to be the Sweet Pea stitched felt flowers. Aren't they awesome!

I used a top note (made with the big shot) for the top of the purse and wide chocolate grosgrain for the handle. On the inside is Old Olive and Whisper White card stock. I used a greeting from Whimsical Words, another FREE Sale-a-bration set. How do I get these free stamps, you ask? Easy, you can get a free Sale-a-bration product for every $50 you purchase in product. You can do a phone, e-mail or online order. Even more exciting is that I will send you all of the supplies along with a tutorial (colors will vary) for the adorable purse gift card holder absolutely FREE when you place a $50 order via phone, e-mail or online by January 18th. Don't forget to check out the all new Occasions Mini Catalog. It is also packed with all new products that will blow you away. I will be posting new ideas in the coming weeks with all of the new products, so stay tuned!!

Talk to you soon,

Stamp Club

So today was stamp club and it was very fun, as usual. I love seeing everyone and catching up with them. Here are some of the projects that we made today:

Sorry the pictures are not very good, my camera and I are not getting along well lately. Anyhow, the first one is a quick and easy card using Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss and Whisper White card stock. It also uses Lovely as a Tree and Many Merry Messages. We stamped in Artichoke ink and then added the white using white craft ink and an Aqua Painter.

The next one is stamped with the Autumn Splendor stamp set (new favorite) and shimmer paint mixed with a reinker. We then embossed it with clear embossing powder. We used soft suede and dusty durango card stock.

If you are interested in one of the stamp clubs, here are the details:
We meet on the second Thursday of the month at either 9:30 am OR 6:30 pm. Each month we make three projects, including a new technique. Each person puts in a $20 order each month and then we all take turns getting the hostess benefits. We meet for 6 - 8 months (depending on the number of participants). It is a very fun time and I have openings in both groups. Please contact me at or 810-694-5409 for more details.

Hope you all have a great evening!
