Scrapbook Sunday # 31

This photo makes me smile whenever I see it. I think of a bright-eyed frog. So this Stampin' Up! stamp set was perfect to use on this page. It is the You're Sublime stamp set.

50th Anniversary Card

Have you noticed this Large Numbers Framelits Dies set in the new spring Occasions Stampin' Up! catalog? It is very popular. I have pinned a bunch of cards created with this die set and the coordinating stamp set, on my pinterest site. Check them out here.

This is the first card that I have created with this set, but I have many others planned.

Tuesday Tutorial # 29

I didn't think that I was going to get a Tuesday Tutorial done in time and then I saw the Mojo Monday sketch and it inspired me to make a card. Once I had the card made I decided to go ahead and create the tutorial! Sometimes when one thing leads to another, it's a good thing!

Scrapbook Sunday # 30

This is a simple page but the photo is mounted in a different way than I usually mount photos. Usually for a page such as this I would adhere the photo to the mat and then adhere the mat to the page. For this page I chose to cut the area out of the Sweet Li'l Things Designer Series Paper and then adhere the card stock mat behind the opening before mounting the photo onto the card stock mat.

It gives a slight shadow box effect to the photo mat and the added bonus is that I have a piece of Designer Series paper that I can use for a greeting card or other project!

Perhaps I will use the extra piece of DSP to create a card using the Sale-A-Bration stamp set "Sky is the Limit"

This scrapbook page is 8 1/4" x 8 1/4"

Have a blessed day,

Snow Place Tags

It has been a long time since I have posted any projects. 

Have you ever been pulled in so many directions and so stressed that you just shut down? That is how it has been for me for at least a month.

I have come into the stamping studio to stamp some samples and create some blogs posts and just end up going on Facebook to see what everyone is talking about. I just couldn't get creative. 

I have created a few scrapbook pages which I will be posting soon. 

When I was getting ready to create a January themed page with snow people, I pulled out the Snow Place stamp set and found a bunch of card candy that I had created to give away at the classes that I usually have in October or November, but didn't this year due to some family happenings.

So, I decided to post the photo of them so that you could see the long overdue project and give you a chance to get a set of them. As I said, I usually give them as little extras to my customers, but I have 10 sets and I will give them to the first 10 people who leave comments on my blog.
These can be used as tags or as embellishments on cards.

If you use them on Christmas cards you can get a head start on your cards for next year!

This is one set that was carried over in the new Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog that went live January 5th. It is toward the back of the catalog and is a fun bundle to have.
