Stampin' Up! Great Friend Stamp set

Hi there! If I have done this correctly, today should be Friday!?!? Today is rehearsal dinner for Jeff and Mandy's big day tomorrow! I am so excited for them and now not only will I have a great brother-in-law but a sweet sister-in-law as well! Yea!!

Here are some cards I made using Bashful Blue, Old Olive & Perfect Plum colored cardstock as well as the Patterns Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! The first two cards are stamped with the Great Friend stamp set and the last on is done using the On a Pedestal set. I normally do not use blue when I create cards, especially a light baby blue, but I saw this color combination and it made me feel happy!!

Thanks for looking and happy Friday!!

Stampin' Up! On Board So Tweet Chipboard

Here are two cards that I created from Stampin' Up!'s On Board So Tweet Chipboard and the Sunny Day Simply Scrappin' Kit. I just love the colors and the three dimension-ality (???) it gives to the cards...not to mention that the birds and owls are so in right now (are they still??) and so cute!

I have only 5 "Mini Card Kits" left that I've put together if you are interested in creating these cards. The kit is $5 and comes with everything you need (2 white cards, patterned and solid cardstock, the chipboard pieces and a picture of each card) except the stamped messages or adhesive. (The stamped words are from the Stampin' Up! Pocket Silhouette set)

Here is a pic of what you get in my "Mini Card Kit"...
(and to quote Ruth B. "It is a fun project"!!)

Leaving for California....

Hi there everyone! Just wanted to let you know that I am leaving for California today (at the crack of dawn- the best time to travel...I love getting up and out early for traveling days!) I have never done this before but I've tried to have a post set up for each day I am gone (I know ambitious seeing as though I hardly post on days that I am home. Sorry.) So I hope it works and I hope you enjoy looking!

Here are some pics from our last California adventure...

And here is a photo of the front page of the 4x6 "brag book" I made them for some of their wedding photos. I used Stampin' Up! Simply Scrappin' Love Stories kit which is now discontinued :(

I am having a great time creating cards using Mojo Monday card layouts!

Here is my creation for this week...
(I hope that rotating the sketch isn't breaking the rules!!!???)
I just love this color combination as you can tell from my last Mojo Monday card. This time I used the Stampin' Up! Good Friend Set along with the Cottage Wall designer paper series. Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive & Orchid Opulence colors are so them!
Thanks for checking out my card! :)
