Urban Oasis Card Class!! March 7th!!

I don't know about you, but I LOVE Stampin' Ups Designer Series Papers, actually I loved them so much, I wasn't even able to cut into them until recently! A little crazy I know! The Urban Oasis Paper is one of my very favorites, I just love those blues, greens and grays! Maybe I've been in Ohio too long, after all it is pretty gray here! Oh and the grass IS greener here in Marysville...thats the motto anyway! I guess if you don't count the 4 months of yellow grass then it is! Ok, I'm rambling on...
So the cards and box in the pictures are what we'll be making on March 7th at my 1st card class! They are all fairly simple to do. I'm really looking forward to sharing something I love with others around me! If you are interested in coming please shoot me an email! Cost is $12 or FREE with a $25 Stampin' Up Order from me.
As much as I would love to say I came up with this awesome project...I didn't! So thanks goes out to Sheryl Braun & Stephanie David from the SU website and to Andrea Wolford for all of there amazing ideas, that I compiled into one great class!!

Color Challenge

So I decided to do the SCS Color Challenge. The colors were Rose Red, More Mustard and Kiwi Kiss and this is what I came up with! I used Stampin Ups embrace life stamp set. I clear embossed all of the pink flowers and the saying. I am loving these challenges so plan on seeing much more!

Summery Birthday Gifts!

I thought I'd post these gifts that I made last summer, I was just organizing some pictures and was excited to see that I took pictures before I gave them to my cousins! So here they are all bright and summery! I used the Stampin Up Tart & Tangy stamp set, I got the ideas for the purse, bookmarks and push-up pop from SCS, Its been so long I don't have the links to those but here is the link to SCS. I purchased the bins from Big Lots for $1! I stamped some plain white paper (from a paper roll) for the presents and I threw in some candy too! I'm off to try a new challenge, I'll post what I come up with later today!
