Thank you tags

I like to put pretty tags on customer's bags from workshop or class orders.  Usually there is enough left over pieces to come up with some cute design, and this month's class was no exception.  The stampers loved the Daisy Delight Suite (who doesn't?), so I used scraps from those projects to make these tags.

SSINK Summer Fun

Summertime is perfect for bike riding, and what's more fun than riding your bike with your friend.

This pup is happy on the front of this pretty bike made with the new stamp set, "Bike Ride" and coordinating Build a Bike framelits.

The Pool Party and Flirty Flamingo bike reminds me of the cruiser bikes I see faculty riding around campus on in the fall and spring.  One of my co-workers has a very similar bike, complete with the basket in front.  She'll often bring in flowers or baked goods, but so far no puppy!

Cruise on over to the Stampin' Stylin' INKspiration blog and see what other summer fun creations the design team has made.

Carols of Christmas

I was so happy when Stampin' Up! released one of the Christmas stamps from the Holiday catalog for a sneak peek.  I start getting ready for my big October Christmas Stamp Camp in July, so this was very helpful to me.

The Carols of Christmas stamp set and Card Front Builder framelit bundle is an awesome way to make so many beautiful Christmas cards.

I always make a tall Christmas card as one of our Christmas Stamp Camp projects, so I thought this would be the perfect set to use for a long card.  I embossed the words with white embossing powder on Night of Navy, tore Whisper White hills for the trees that I cut from Be Merry DSP and a cute little Crumb Cake deer.  The next layer is Whisper White which lets the top moon and stars shine through brightly.  All that is mounted on Cherry Cobbler.

You will love this bundle too!  It's available in August

Christmas in August

It's never too soon to start thinking about Christmas!  And Stampin' Up! is giving us a great chance to start making our Christmas Cards with the early release of "Carols of Christmas", available now!
This new stamp set and coordinating framelts have oodles of possibilities for your Christmas-time stamping.

Here, I used the nice, big "Deck the Hall" stamp and layered on top of Be Merry DSP (available in the annual catalog), a strip of Gold Glimmer paper and Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

You will get to use this stamp setand framelits at our August stamp class October Christmas Camp.
