I just can't get enough of these boxes! I made another one with the Parisian Breeze Textured Cardstock weight DSP. Did you notice that on page 158 of the catalog all the DSP is textured cardstock? And the Rockability DSP has printed glossy designs on each sheet!

I was trying to figure out how to use the new Oval Scallop Sizzix die cut on a card and this is what I came up with. I started with some Kiwi Kiss and the Bella Toile background. Then, I used the Bella Rose DSP and ran it through the polka dot Texturz plate. I stamped the roses and leaves on the same pink dsp from Bella Rose and cut them out to pop them up. I added some ribbon and the "thank you" from the set as well.

I saw these cute, cute, CUTE purses on my friend, Lynn's blog and had to go make them immediately the cuteness was so strong! Check out her blog for great pictures on how to make this cute purse! I decided to make some to give to friends. I used the Candy Lane DSP and the Love You Much set. I will definitely be making more of these!

I really love all the great samples in the Sale-a-bration catalog, so I recreated some of them and used the layouts for others. I love the Polka Dot Punches set. It's so cute and easy to make great cards with its stamps and coordinating punches! I love not having to cut out flowers and hearts!
Of course the new so saffron ribbon and certainly celery poly-twill are must haves. They are so beautiful!
I finally used one of the hat pins from the Pretties Kit for this card. I think it adds a nice finish to this card.
It took me a couple of tries to make the flower for this card but I finally figured out that using a 1" x 12" strip and scoring it every 3/8" works the best.

Here is another card that made using the Sizzix Texturz Plates. It's so fun to run them through the Big Shot and then feel the cool textures! I also love this new stamp, Elegant Thank You. It's one of the "Items under $10" in the very back of the catalog. It's a collection of stamps and notecard sets that you can purchase individually. I love simple cards. I love how they look and how easy they are to put together! Thanks for stopping by!

As soon as I saw the butterfly in Simple Friendship in the new catalog, I knew I had to get it! I love the butterfly! I also had to get all the new Sizzix texture plates. It's hard to tell from this picture, but I used the swirl texture on the baja breeze. It adds a lovely texture and dimension to the card.

I love these little boxes you can make from the new Sizzix die!! They fit the little hershey's nuggets perfectly! I used the Yummy sale-a-bration stamp and the Candy Lane DSP to embellish this cute little box. I wrapped the nuggets with the Candy Lane DSP and tied some riding hood red taffeta ribbon around them. It was hard not to eat them while I was wrapping.

I somewhat organized my stamping area and so I thought I would take some pictures before it got disorganized again. Above is my stamping desk and shelves, all from IKEA. I used IKEA's wood dvd holders to hold my ink pads, IKEA's pot holder racks for my punches, and IKEA baskets for other stamping items. I have two files cabinets under my desk, one for paper and the other for forms, magazines, and ideas. To the right of my desk is my cutting area where I have my paper cutter and more baskets holding envelopes, chipboard, reinkers, and paper scraps.
