This set is one of those that is great for year round use. Just change out the images and sentiments to create cards for almost any occasion.

Chalk Talk

Are you ready to see the new Chalk Talk Bundle (item 132731/132730) in action? My friend Kathleen created this card recently for our Blue Mountain Stampers’ Weekend Retreat, and I had a lot of fun stamping it since I always enjoy Kathleen’s cards. (Kathleen was my demonstrator before I became a Demonstrator myself.)

This card has such a great vintage feel to it, doesn’t it? And I really like the way the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper (item 130140)  is highlighted on this card, especially the little strip across the bottom. Are you wondering what pack of Designer Series Paper the Pistachio Pudding strip came from? Well it isn’t Designer Series Paper at all – So how did I create it for this card? It was so simple. I simply stamped the image from Chalk Talk on the piece of Pistachio Pudding card stock randomly and then added the small strips of Soho Subway Designer Series Paper to the top and bottom of the stamped card stock. Isn’t that cool?

Mosaic Madness

Today’s card is one that I created using the Mosaic Madness Bundle (item 132734/132733) from page 123 in the 2013-2014 Catalog. In addition to the bundle I used the coordinating Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder (item 129984) for the background to add a little texture and interest.

I love the fact that you can purchase things that you would already purchase together in Bundles and save 15% too. There are lots of new bundles in the 2013-2014 Catalogs, so why not check?

Coordinating products is one of the things that drew me to Stampin’ Up! in the first place. I’m never disappointed since it seems like whether I have something brand new or something that I’ve had in my stash they’ll work together well.

On a personal note, here is a quick up date for you – Kaitlin and I arrived safely in Houston yesterday afternoon after a peaceful flight where we were surrounded by clouds that looked like fluffy cotton balls. (No rain, yippee.) On the plane Kaitlin taught me how to play a game on my mini, Fruit Ninja and how to use Photo booth too. What a hoot – Here is a photo of the two of us. Aaah, a bonding moment for sure.

Photobooth on plane

We spent a nice evening with my sister and her husband at a local Mexican restaurant here in Cypress, El Gallo, and then a quick dip in the pool. It is a bit warmer here in Houston than back in Clarkesville so it was a great way to finish up the evening.
