More Pennent Fun!

Here is another birthday card using Pennent Parade and the Pennent Punch, we talked a few days ago about the Color Coach and this card I also used the color coach to create.

This is such a great card and it even has a masculine look to it! Its hard to find and make cards for the men in our lives but I think that they would actually like this and enjoy the color combination!

Only a few days left until the catalog premiere! Who is excited to get their new catalogs!

I cannot wait to share all the goodies with you that the new catalog has to offer!

Dont forget to take advantage of the last chance lists and products from the old idea book, they wont last long and after June 30th you cannot order anymore! Shop my website

Pennent Parade Birthday

A few days ago I used this set and punch to create a great design for scrapbook pages, and now today and tomorrow we are going to use it on some cards! This set really is so cute and great to use for any occasion. This is a simple birthday card, I used the pennent parade stamp set and pennent punch! Both products are in the new catalog! The DSP is Just add Cake from the new catalog as well!
I hope all these great ideas are getting you excited for the premiere of the new catalog! Leave me a comment and tell me what new products you like so far!

My Friend

Check out this new card! I am using new products from the New idea Catalog!

How many of you have the Color Coach? This is such a great tool and allows you to use color combinations that you wouldnt think of on your own, this is combination on the new card for Island indigo, the colors it suggests are Baja Breeze and Rich Razzelberry. I used new paper from the idea book and the My friend stamp set in the new book. I also used the lace border punch to create the border at the top and bottom.

This card is so simple but I love the colors together and I love how simple it is. The my friend stamp can be replaced with other sentiments to meet your needs! Just a hint but there are some great new inside verse and sentiment stamps in the New Catalog!

More ideas to come, have a great Thursday!

Delicate Card

I wanted to try something alittle bit different to share with you....

You can always do the same old card but why not change it up!

I love this new paper from the New idea book called Flirtacious! I think that it is so girly, I cannot wait to make a few scrapbook pages with it, definitly matches addies personality!

This card is 4 1/4 x 11 score at 2 3/4 on both sides, fold over....

For the band 2 x 11 with a small peice 2 x3 to cover the gap. Wrap it around the card giving alittle space to slide on and off....

I used the new punch from the catalog called the Lace ribbon border punch.

I think that this makes such a pretty card and I hope that you will give it a try next time you make a card! You can start ordering new products July 1st, if you are in my area join me for a new catalog open house July 16th from 10-12pm. To join my mailing list email me  or comment me and leave your email address.

Delicate Doilies Box

I wanted to make a cute little box with this great new paper from the new idea book! I just love this paper I think it is precious! I made a simple 3x3 box, I havent decided what will go inside yet but I thought it was cute none the less...

This paper has great diecuts in the paper pack! You are going to love it, you can start shopping from the new idea book July 1st!

Its been so hot down here, which always makes a pregnant woman miserable but a 4 year old gets bored fast, so we went out to the splash pad and had a great morning just playing in the water....

Thought I would do alittle summer share photo:
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Friend

Here is another sneak peek for you of a new set and even some new paper! This paper is really beautiful and takes a look at color combinations that you wouldnt expect. Colors like Night of Navy, Poppy Parade, Rich Razzelberry and several others. This new paper would be great for scrapbooking pages not just cards! These cards are also made with a new set from the Idea book called my friend. I will use this set over the next few weeks as I share ideas from the new catalog! Make sure you check back over the next few days for ideas....With a new baby on the way the blog will be set with great ideas for you, but not to worry when He arrives I will be sure to post a picture for everyone to see!

Delicate Stash...

With the new baby due I figured I should build up my card stash! So I stamped all of these at once, this is a great thing to do when you really like a design and simply use the Teeny Weeny Wishes set and make different themes for each card using the label punch!

I used the Delicate Doilies set and the new incolors to create these cards! I just love them, they are simple but so pretty!

Here is more with the other incolors, there is definatly a favorite color for everyone out of the in colors this year!

My current project....

With a new baby due anyday, I have taken on a new project, call me crazy but I have a new determination to get it done before he gets here, either that or all of this mess is going to put me into labor! I know I promised new project ideas from the the new catalog and you will start seeing those tomorrow but first I wanted to share my mess....

My current undertaking is catching up on my scrapbooks, Im working on 2008 until now...lets just say I have bitten off more than I can chew....over the last few days Ive completed alot including Ethan's baby book, Addies first trip to the beach book, almost done with 2008 and still alot more to go...I need some cheerleaders!

Here is my work table, how I find anything Im not sure it is a MESS!

Currently today working on 2008, yes that sweet face in those pictures is addie, its been a nice trip down memory lane looking back at the last few years and seeing how much she has grown!

The overall mess....Im almost ashamed to show you this mess but hey as every scrapbooker knows behind every good scrapbook is a BIG BIG MESS!

So over the weekend we celebrated addies 4th birthday alittle early before brother gets here, she really had a great time at her Minnie Mouse party! Thought I would share a picture of my sweet girl!

Well check back tomorrow for some sneak peek projects!
