I created this magnetic fridge notepad as a thank you using Baroque Motifs. These are really fun to make and they make great gifts!
I just love this quick and easy Note Tote (holds a post it note pad inside) and coordinating card! I used the Simply Said stamp set with pretty in pink and apricot appeal. Start with a 3 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock and score at 5 1/2" then 1/2" on each side of that center mark. Then fold on the score lines. Use the word window punch to create the handle for the top and use the corner rounder for the top corners. Thanks to Michelle Wooderson & Beth Silaika for this great idea!
I love this beautiful satin ribbon from the new Holiday mini catalog! I got both the purely pomegranate and chocolate. This ribbon is going to look so great on all my cards and gifts!
My cousin got married last Saturday as well, so I toned down the pink and created this card with Baroque Motifs and the Three for You flower punch. I stamped the large swirl in certainly celery on vellum. Then, I colored the flowers from the punch and the Pretties Kit pretty in pink with a sponge dauber. I find it to be less messy than using markers or ink pads. I added some bling with a rhinestone brad and some softness with the white organdy ribbon. I found some small pink pearls and cut them in half and added them to the centers of the flowers for an elegant touch.
More babies! My college roommate had her fourth girl! She named her Kathryn! So I made a quick and simple baby girl card for her. I used the I'm Here set again with pretty in pink, certainly celery and lavender lace.
I got on a roll, so I made another baby card. This time I used bayou blue and soft sky along with some white taffeta ribbon. I love all the new ribbons!
My cousin just had her first baby, a boy. So I made a quick card to send her along with my favorite sleep book, Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by Dr. Marc Weissbluth. I used two of my new stamp sets, I'm Here and Word on Word. I like the combination of the soft sky and bayou blue. I added some double-stitched ribbon to finish the card.
This is a box that we created out of one piece of cardstock at our monthly demonstrator meeting. The step-by-step directions with pictures can be found on the splitcoaststampers web site under Resources, Projects. We used The Snowflake Spot set with certainly celery and bravo burgundy to create a fun holiday look. We stamped the large snowflake in certainly celery first and rotated the stamp and stamped with bravo burgundy to create the dimensional snowflake. We added some glitter on the ends and in the middle for some bling.
This set has a matching classy brass template and on board blossoms chipboard that coordinate as well! I've seen some darling cards with dragonflies and larger ladybugs created from this set.
This is the first project we did at my Hostess Appreciation Party. We used the Three for You Punch box that is this month's special!

Ok, I know it's corny but I had to say it.
I made these notepad holders from dvd tins as my gift to my hostesses from the past year. You can purchase them from Effectuality. I used the Double-Line Doodles set and the Prints Designer Paper Series.
Here is one of them. I used the rose red and more mustard colors along with the scallop punch.
Here is what it looks like inside. I rolled up a bit of matching paper and stuck it down the barrel of the pen.
I love the baroque motifs set! This is a card I CASEd (Copied And Stamped Exactly) from Stampin' Up!'s Stampin Success Magazine. I love the new In Colors colors of soft sky, purely pomegranate and groovy guava. I embossed the sentiment to make it stand out a little more. And for the row of mellow moss dots, I used the 1/8' hand held punch and then tweezers to carefully stick them in place! The final touch, a little bling with a new rhinestone brad. Whew! A little bit of extra work makes this card simply stunning!
This is a punch book that I created last year! I updated it with all the new punches that came out this year. All the pages are on a ring, so I can easily determine whether or not a stamp will fit in a punch.
Here is the slit punch.
Of course I still ordered some purely pomegranate double-stitched ribbon on my next order.
Recipe: wild wasabi & purely pomegrante cardstock; wild wasabi, purely pomegranate, so saffron, bashful blue classic ink, white craft ink, scallop punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, 1/2 circle punch; Hugs & Wishes stamp set; In the Spotlight stamp set.
I started with an 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 square of blue bayou and scored 2 3/4 from each edge. I stamped the large swirl on each side. Then I cut out each corner box and folded up the sides to create the box. I punched holes in each corner and tied the sides together with wild wasabi double stitched ribbon.
Then I stamped the square image off on scrap paper to get a lighter wild wasabi and then stamped it on 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 whisper white cardstock. Next, I stamped "cherish" in chocolate chip on top of the square image.
To finish off the box, I put some chocolate in a cello bag and tied it off with some more wild wasabi ribbon and a tag using the new scallop punch and the 1 3/8 circle punch. This is an easy fun project that you can make too!
I love the new scallop punch and how it perfectly matches the stamp from In the Spotlight from Stampin' Up!'s NEW Fall/Winter Collection 2007 on page 20.
