Framelet storage

This is how I used to store my framelets. They are all together but take up a good chunk of space. 

Since I don't have Lot of space I had to come up with something better. So here is what I came up with! Makes them my h easier to look through and way more portable!
It's a 6x8 three ring binder and takes up so much less room than the box! 
Until next time

First timers!

I love to share my passion for card making with others and I especially love sharing with those who have never stamped before.  This past month I had the opportunity to share with these three lovely ladies. Diane and Nora ( on the two ends) were brand new but Amy in the middle had stamped before. All three did an excellent job ! I look forward to stamping with them again real soon!

Thank you cards

Every month I try really hard to make thank you cards for my club girls. Some months I get them done and some I'm just not so lucky! This was a lucky month!
The set I used is called oh hello and the ink is crisp cantaloupe and early espresso

I have to admit, when I saw this in the new catalog/idea book, I wasn't so excited about it.
But... after watching this video. I think I NEED it now! lol  And I think YOU need it too! So here is what I am going to do. I am going to post a hostess code. The same as last month, anyone who makes a $25.00 or more purchase using this hostess code will get their name in the drawing for the hostess benefits once the party reaches 150.00 min.  As an added bonus,. if this months party total is over 250.00. I will have a second drawing and that winner will win this cool new tool! (the rotary attachment, not the entire cutter)
So here is the code  WQYB7P6P  I will keep this party open until the end of the month. Also, if your order is 50.00 or more, you will be entered twice for the hostess benefits, 75.00 will get you three chances and so on and so forth! So take a peek at this video and then go grab your catalog and go shopping! Just click HERE to start shopping!

Until next time,

Bridal Shower

 My Niece Holeigh is getting married in October. This past weekend she had a bridal shower. This is the card I made to go along with her gift.
I searched the internet for inspiration and thought that I had found the perfect card. As I started to re-create the card I had found, things started to change, a little tweak here and a little change there and in the end, the card ended up looking NOTHING like the card I have found for inspiration. So I guess in a way, the internet card HAD inspired me... just in a different way that I had intended.  lol and I am totally ok with that!
This is the inside of the card. I wanted to bring a little bit of color to the inside of the card so I added a half layer and some ribbon. Finishing it up with a couple of punched hearts that I had run through the big shot with the same embossing folder as the main layer on the front of the card.
Items used for the card:
Stamp set- Express yourself, Yippee Skippee
Card stock - whisper white and blushing bride
Punches - Scallop trim border 118402
Elegant Butterfly - 127526
Bitty Butterfly - 129406
Word window-119857
Modern label-119849
Embossing folder-
Beautifully Baroque -130917

My room mate gift for Anna

 This is the gift that I made for my room mate at convention. Although I did not come up with the original design or pattern, I did put my own touches in it!

I used one of my favorite sets for this project. A Secret Garden. Along with the framelets that goes with it. The framelets sure do make things go so much quicker. And add the magnetic platform and oh yea baby!!! lol

The inside has a little surprise too. A mini pad covered and decorated slightly differently then the outside but definitely compatible. It fit just nicely in the pocket on the inside cover!
Big thanks to Anna, my room mate for making my first convention so memorable! You Rock!

My Swap card

This was my swap card for convention. I only joined one organized swap and did not make any extra cards for general swapping. I had a lot of fun making this card. If you look close, you can see the paper piercing in the two right corners and along the left side of the card.  Sorry about the little bit of glare on the card... It had a clear envelope on it when I took the picture... silly me, I know!
The set I used is called Perfect Blend and is the perfect set for me because I just love coffee and drink it every morning in a cup that looks very similar to the one on this card!
So, if you don't own this set yet, click on my shop now button and get it.. then when it comes, grab your set your paper ink and don't forget the coffee and come stamp with me!
Until next time,
