...and you're gonna LOVE it! Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's - it's all in there.  It's fresh and right on trend, too!  The catalog goes live on August 1, but in the meantime, let me wet your whistle with a few fun treat projects:

 Muslin Bags, cute, right?! Stamp, sew, embellish, the sky's the limit and you'll be a hero when your send your little one to school with these treats.  Fill 'em with small raisin boxes for a healthy treat or pencil eraser tops for a non edible treat.  I'll keep the Reese's here, k? ;)

June is wedding month...bring on the bling!

Sparkle, tulle and vellum - a perfect combination for the new Mr. & Mrs. - So quick and simple!

Stampin' Up!'s new circles framelits combine with each other and, oddly enough, the Holiday Ornament framelit dies for the perfect bling rings.  I literally threw this together in ten minutes for the Paper Players Bring on the Bling Challenge #150.

Some other goodies I used for this card are the Rotary Date Stamp from the This & That Epic Day suite, the Label Love stamp set (Mr & Mrs.) and some basic rhinestone jewels.  Bling, accomplished!

got scraps?

Boy, do I ever!  You'd think I was born in the depression era; when in fact I'm really just a super thrifty gal  craft hoarder.  Anyway, got some scraps?  Make a whimsical birthday card!

I used Stampin' Up!'s new Circle Framelit dies in a very random pattern on Whisper White card stock, rolled it through the Big Shot and then pierced the outside using the circles template from the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack.  Adhered my leftover Sycamore Street (Sale-A-Bration) scrap squares (or oblongs) directly behind the circles then framed that with Island Indigo Cardstock on a Whisper White base.  The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.

Now there's one idea for the plethora of scrap paper and cardstock we all have lying around well organized and filed by color, pattern and size.

To order these or any other Stampin' Up! products, please visit my online store, open 24/7.  Thanks for looking in,

cheerful fun birthday - fsm#89

How fun is this card? I'm pretty sure it's my favorite, so far.  Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabana combine with banners, polka dots and lots of white space to keep your focus on the sentiment.

To stamp the sentiment from the label love happy birthday to you stamp, I masked off each portion I wanted to stamp with a post it note, using a sponge dauber to ink the words only. This would have been much easier, had I had a collection of Many Marvelous Markers.  I'm totally ordering myself a set this month!

My inspiration for this card was a sketch at Freshly Made Sketches - and while it's not exactly the sketch, it uses all the elements.  Use sketches as a starting point and jump off where ever you feel comfortable!

I'd love to teach you how to make a fun, cheerful card while you earn free products from Stampin' Up! - Give me a call, a click, or send me an email if you'd like to host a fun girls night in.
