big bloom!

We had a stunningly great day at the beach today. I did get some things ready to post while we are gone!! Here they are. If you have emailed, I will answer all of them by Friday!!!!


I have loved using this stamp set! Here is one of the projects we did at June camp.

Petals galore!

A Doodle Book!






Another June camp project - that used a ton of stuff!!! Doodle This, Office Accroutrements and coordinating paper, spring mini punches and the booklet itself is from the long notes from the Spring Mini.

My Office









Taking a break from card pictures ~ here is a view into my office area. I have a ton of tables in there, but usually end up standing while I stamp on the ledge that overlooks the first floor. It is amazing how much stuff you really can fit into a small area!

It uses Baroque Motif - a new stamp set. New colors - rocky river, sky blue, purely pomegranate on vanilla cardstock.

The flowers are held together with one of the new crystal brads.

In Full Bloom



Days are winding down to get the retiring sets. Here is another one that I will miss using.


On this card, you can not really see - but I stamped on the shimmery white cardstock (so elegant) and then 'watercolored' with Stampin' Up!'s metallic pencils. It gives it great shine. Not so sure about the pin, made it a couple of years ago, glad the trend didn't last long. There are hat pins in the new catalog - that is a look I can go for!

Scrap Your Summer!



I have my vacation scrapbook ready, now we just need to go, so I can take the pictures. I love to scrap ahead!!


This is a fun flippable book made from coasters. We will be making it at the end of the month. Check the calendar for details.


June Camp - this Friday!!!


Don't miss it, way fun projects!

Earlier this month we did a 3d card with the chickens - now that you know how easy it is - try another with the frogs!!!

June Projects




Here are two projects for June....I have spent much more time reading (I have read about 4 novels since school let out, my summer indulgence) and playing Mario Party on the GameCube (with the girls:) than I have stamping....even with the new rubber calling my name, I can't find the time to stamp!

I got a package...


full of NEW colors, new stamps, new chipboard, new hostess sets....

new, new, new!

I hope to get a minute today to play with it and get a sample or two posted. Watch for those AND a project or two from next week's camp. If not today, definately before Friday!

I finally came up with the final four projects. Some sets (like Petal Prints!) didn't get their final farewell project..... so sad!
I realized that since we are doing TEN projects I needed to throw in a couple that were exceedingly quick, so two of those are here. In the end, the white card simply stamped and colored with Pure Color Pencils (using The World Over) ended up being one of my favorites! Sometimes simple is just elegant. My very favorite is the Mixed Bouquet in yesterdays post.
