New Catalog "Sweet Stems" Preview

Ok.............finally something not Christmas........are you shocked? Well it was driving me crazy to not play with my new preordered stamp set from the new catalog, so I made a few cards last night using the new set called Sweet Stems and the new designer series paper. Looks like these new spring colors are going to be Kiwi Kiss, Regal Rose, Rose Red and Perfect Plum! Spring is on it's way!

Stationary Box

I also attempted to make this Stationary box using the "Winter Post" stamp set. These take forever to make but are such a cute gift idea. They hold postage stamps, 3x3 note cards, tags and regular size cards as well as a pen and paper. I have the instructions if anyones interested. Just email me!

More Christmas

I love how Angie Juda made this card with all punches. You use the 1/2", 1", and 1 1/4" inch circl punches to make the tree and case her idea. I used some of my fancy scrapbooking brads to make the tree top but you could use ribbon as well.

Candy Boxes

Here's some better pictures of the boxes I made. I found this template on splitcoast. I used my new felt flurries and build-a-brads to spruce it up a little! Plus I found clear asitate at Michaels in the drafting aisle and used it to make a window so you could see candy inside.

Holiday Stamping!

Now that the last class of the year is over, I have been playing with all my left over Christmas product and putting to good use the "12 days of Christmas" I bought off of Becky over at Inking Idaho. The packet was $12.95 but i've really used it to make cute stuff. Here's some of my alterations to her originals. Enjoy!

Last Stamp Class of the Year

Wow..........i've been meaning to get these pictures up for over a week now. It has been so crazy trying to get ready for Christmas. Here's some pictures of my last class and the rob your neighbor presents that I gave each person who attended class.
