New Catalogue Open House

I held a New Catalogue Open House the other night and had a lovely group of ladies join me.  The make & takes were a Thank-you card and little gift...all ready to give!  The card was inspired by one of my favorite crafters, Tessa Wilde and the little box was right out of our Stampin' Up! demonstrators magazine, Stampin' Success.  It's made with the Bitty Box & Envelope Big Shot Die and is the perfect size for a little gift like maybe jewelry or a couple of Ghiradelli chocolates!
The color combination, Poppy Parade, Pool Party and Calypso Coral is so cheery!

I just {love} this paper ...

The original Vintage Inspired Card Box and cards, seen here, highlighted the lovely blues and greens in the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper.  Since the paper pack comes with some really pretty pink and green patterns as well, I wanted to make a pink version! 

{so cute}

We'll be using some fun new embellishments found in current Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini, the Beveled Window Panes and the Trinket Keys {so cute}! As well, I'm highlighting the Clearly for You stamp set and Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper ... my current favorite!  It's going to be so much {fun}!

My poor neglected blog ... finally a post!

It's been forever since I last posted something crafty ... all I can say is that it has been a long and trying winter ... it's March and I woke to hear the radio announcer comment that it was -20 degrees (C) outside ... urghhhh, when are we gonna get a break? Enough about that and on to something fun ...

I had a lovely group of gals over this past Saturday for a card class. 
Sale-a-bration was the theme ...  This first little beauty was something from the Stampin' Up demonstrator site ... I jazzed it up a little by adding the large scallop square.
The next two cards are cased from Julie Davison and Gretchen Barron's blogs, respectively...such talent!

Our last little project was something I designed ... I'm not much of a 'sticker' fan so I wanted to do something with the Quick Accents page that comes with the Sale-a-bration Designer Paper Pack ... this is what I came up with ... kinda' fun!
