Silhouette Card

I really love silhouettes, I have created them and have them in a few areas in my house.  I loved this silhouette image of the little kid on a swing.  So finally I used it:)  And of course with one of my favorite color combos!  One of the times that I think very vanilla and whisper white work on the same card.  
Colors: Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, and Basic Black

Artisan Facebook Eclectic Card

I love the Vintage look, and I think that I am starting to really love eclectic and collage style of stamping. I kinda love the idea that imperfections are part of the design:)  I created this card for the Stampin' Up! Artisan Face book page( and then used it for a class as well) Be sure to check out the page and let me know what you think.  The Artisan Team is so talented and I am sure you will love what you see!

Sale-a-bration Scrapbook pages-part 1

So the end of last year I was asked to do leadership display boards.  It was SO much fun.  New product before anyone else had it!  What could be better?  
Well somehow I NEVER showed you my scrapbook pages.  I have to start off by saying I think scrapbooking is a weak point for me.  I see these amazing pages out there, but mine just tend to fall a bit short, maybe that's why I "forgot":)  Well even though SAB is over, I thought you might want to see.  I will be showing you a few more over the next few days.  Don't worry I will go back to the current stuff after that!

Club Card

Hello Everyone!  I hope you are all having a wonderful day.  Life has been pretty busy lately-go figure, right?  But today I took the day "off", I say that lightly considering I have been cleaning and taking care of the kiddos all day.  But I took today more or less to catch up on the house.  So far so good.  

Anyways, I wanted to share a card I did with my club last month.  I wasn't originally "sold"on this set or paper, but of course when the paper was about to go away I started to use it and regretted not digging in sooner.  The stamp set is Apothecary Art, now one of my new found favorites:)  I just love how easy it is to use!  
And was thrilled to find out it will be back in the upcoming catalog.  Love it too?  You can still order it!  Stampin' Up! extended the stamp sets that are carrying over from the occasions mini and made them still available for purchase!

Club(s) 3 -d projects

Hey everyone!  Here are the projects I did for the 3-d item at club this month  I decided to do a similar project to the tutorial I had created for Craft Project Central last month.  Why not kill two birds with one stone, right:)
Here is the project we did for my standard club.  We turned the 3x3 card box into a tea box, added a few bags of perfectly coordinating Tazo tea, and stacked the tea cups up!

For my advanced club we did a larger tea box.  I toned down the pearls a bit but other then that it is the same as my tea box from he tutorial.  Visit Craft Project Central to purchase it!  

Have a great day and don't forget ALL May comments will be entered for a chance to

Club(s) Gifts:)

So my new round of club(s) started last week and we had a blast...
I have a lot of new members so now I have two clubs going, which is very exciting since it is probably my favorite type of event.  It is a great deal since the class is practically free:)  All you have to do is commit to an order each month for the length of the club.  My two current ones are 8 month clubs and I am currently taking names for a third club to start in June!  I need a minimum of 6 (max 8) members to get is going...I am half way there, so if you are interested in joining email me right away with "club" in the subject line and I will add you to the list!!!  This is the best way to learn new techniques, make great projects, and best of all get lots of product of your own!  Plus earn FREE merchandise!!!  Check out my stamp club page with the link at the top of my blog(right under my page title) to get all the details and just email me with any questions.

So enough about that and on to the pictures...
 Here is my Hostess gift to all of my members.  The first club I always "welcome" everyone with a handmade gift from me.  This round I decided to alter notebooks!  I figured if nothing else they could write down ALL the stuff they wanted to buy in them:)  
Above is a close up
And here is the second set, sorry I didn't show you the detail as much of this set:)

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!  All comments in May will be entered in a drawing for BLOG CANDY!!!!!
Also be sure to Check back later this week to see the projects we made at club!

Parks and Rec Cards

As I have posted many times before, I teach a parks and rec class (almost) every Tuesday evening at my local Parks and rec.  Each class we make 3 cards, 3 different designs.  I do my best to give them variety and try to take request:)  This time around we made a feminine, sympathy and masculine.  A good mix:)
