Really Good Greetings

This week I’ll be sharing some more of the great convention swaps that I received. I hope you are enjoying them. So without further ado…. Here is another great card that I received from Wanda at convention using the Really Good Greetings stamp set. There are a lot of fresh, fun greetings that come in this set that I think you’ll really enjoy. This card uses one of my favorites and isn’t it great it fits right inside one of our Chalk Talk Framelits?

Really Good Greetings convention swap 2013

I just love the way Stampin’ Up! items coordinate together. It is one of the things that initially drew me to Stampin’ Up! when I began stamping all those years ago. I quickly learned that I saved money because I wasn’t always trying to find something that would work together with something I already had like I did when I purchased things at my local big box store.

If you love the Flower Shop stamp set as much as I do you’ll want to check out my video with hints on how to assemble your stamps so they line up easily with the coordinating punch. Click HERE to see that post.

Luau Beach Bag Tutorial

Here is a cute little Luau Beach Bag treat holder that I made for everyone who attended my Luau Catalog Launch last weekend. If you forgot yours – don’t worry I’ll be tucking it in with your order.

I thought that the In Colors this year went perfectly with a beach theme so I pulled out my NEW In Color Collection Designer Series Paper Stack (item 130136). The colors are so yummy – they remind me of the summer or sherbet, how about you? And don’t you just love the new patterns? The chevron in particular is right on trend and I thought was perfect for this little bag.


And if you haven’t already seen it you’re going to fall in love with the new 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim that comes in all 5 In Colors this year! Isn’t it just too stinking cute? I’m finding I’m reaching for it all the time to use in my projects.

I had a lot of fun making these little treats that contain 2 pieces of chocolate for everyone. So without further ado here is my Luau Beach Bag Tutorial Video.

Memorable Moments

My daughter turned 18 on Monday and so I wanted to make her a special card using some of my sneak peek products that I just received from the NEW 2013-2014 Catalog.

Here’s what I came up with. I think she really liked it too since she specifically noticed our NEW Washi Tape that I used to make the candles and commented “it was cool”.

Memorable Moments (1)

I wasn’t sure about this product when I first saw it, but I think I’m really going to like it. It’s quick and easy to use and I love the feel of it.

The stamp set I used for the sentiment on this card is the Memorable Moments stamp set (item 126680/126682) currently found in our 2012-2013 Catalog on page 139. The set has such a pretty font and I like the way I can customize it for almost any occasion using the set of numbers that it includes.


Stamp Set: Memorable Moments (item 126680/126682)

Inks: Melon Mambo

Paper: Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Whisper White

Accessories: Gingham Garden Washi Designer Tape (sneak peek item 129314), Bird Builder Punch (item 117191), Woodgrain Embossing Folder (item 127821)
