Party Favors

My Bestfriend Jen is moving to Florida. I am so sad since she is the one who introduced me into stamping and now I'm in LOVE with this hobby. I probably would have never got into this if it wasn't for her. I had a good-bye party for her at my house and wanted to give a little something to all our friends. So I made this flip flops with the flowers for each girls with Jen's new address. I used the big shot and the circles die to make the flowers and used the scallop envelope die to make the new address card. The boys got a jar of mints with the new address card. I think they turned out so cute and my friends LOVED them!!

New Colors

Yikes! It's been so long since I've updated this blog!!
So much has happened since the last post..
The Summer catalog is availble until August 31, 2010 and the new idea book & catalog is here!
I had my first open house on July 1st and I'm waiting patiently for my shipment to arrive. The warehouse must be swamped with the new catalog orders since it's taking them a little longer for my goodies to ship out! Please contact me if you need the new catalog or you can always download the catalog. (look on the sidebar for the catalog)
In the new catalog they have brand new colors so I wanted to share it with you! I am still very sad so many of my favorite colors have retired but I'm starting to like some of the new colors. I'll share some cards I've made with the new colors later!

Valentines Day Picture Frame

When I saw these small square black frames at the Target's dollar section I just had to buy them. They were only $2.50 for three of them and I thought it would make a cute little gift for someone special! I opened the frame and put the ribbon through the side and used the Sending Love Specialty DSP from the mini catalog for the inside. The ribbons are 1/4" grosgrain ribbon in real red and 1/2" striped grosgrain ribbon in pretty in pink.

Valentines Day Card

Here's a simple card I made using the new sets from the ocassions mini catalog. I used stamp-a-ma-jig to get the dotted heart perfectly over the smaller heart. I decided to get the wood mounts but if you get the clear mount stamp sets you wouldn't need to use the stamp-a-ma-jig on this. You can just stamp the big heart first and use the clear mount stamp to get the center heart on there perfectly. I also used the sending love specialty DSP for the small strip on the bottom.

Stampin' Up Supplies:
Stamp: I {Heart} Hearts, Well scripted
Papers: Pretty in Pink, Real red, Very vanilla, Sending Love Specialty DSP
Ink pad: Chocolate chip, Real Red
Accessories: Real Red grosgrain ribbon, Stamp-a-ma-jig
