The sistas love this set! Hee Hee!

In the spirit of our last sista meeting, this card had to be posted as soon as possible. We had a great time with the sistas at Lynnae's. It was wonderful! As I get the pictures together I'll be sure to share. Keep posting! Sera

More bags

I realize this is an odd picture. Here are more of those bags. Heidi demoed this for us at our post convention party in August as well. Those are some directions on how to do the bag on top. I'm sharing these in case my bags don't turn out! The designer paper is so nice to have so the inside is decorated as well as the top. I'm demoing this for a group this month- I hope you like the sneak peek ladies! Sera

Cupcake Bag

I've been looking to try this bag (cereal box bag) for a long time. I came across this photo that I took at our upline's upline meeting in September. I have no clue who made it, if you know her, let me know and I'll send her a thank you! This is one of my all time favorite sets, and sistas you're loving the cupcake too, even as our mascot! So I'm putting together a Valentine bag inspired by this... I'll share once it's complete. I need to make some cards (a gift set) and if you look at this closely, it looks as though you can switch the card out as it's in a cello bag. Love it! Valentine stamping is my absolute favorite!

Happy SU! Anniversary Heidi!

I cannot get this picture to go the other way, and I've even blogged it before. Sorry everyone! It look awesome either way! Congrats to Heidi and her four years! Sera

Oh Baby!

I saw a post on 'from my ink pad to yours' showing how to make a stencil from cardboard (she used a cereal box and I used the back cover of a note pad). Check it out here. I loved the idea of how you could take a simple one layer card, emboss a square (or other shape) on the front, stamp an image inside, add a little embellishment, words and BAM! you are done with a simple WOW project. I did struggle with leaving the embossed square alone ... PLAIN (big surprise there!). So, I used my glue and drew a line around the embossed square then added dazzling diamonds. With the extra bling, I'm entirely satisfied with this simple single layer card and can't wait to pop it in the mail for some new grandparents I know. This card uses curvy verses and fast & fun notes ss, basic black, pink pirouette & regal rose inks and pink gingham. ~Angie

Found another one!

I'll stop with these after today! For now at least. This one was fun and using retired "in colors" is always a good thing! Short post today... I have to go back to work of all things and the kids are back to school... I'm ready! Sera

Baby gift bundle

A friend from work had a baby boy about a month ago and a bunch of us put "baby" items into this huge basket and sent it to her recently. Here is part of my contribution. Please note that it was packaged very nicely (not shown). There are ten thank you cards, matching envelopes and some 3x3 love notes as well. I used our punches three hostess set and some retired DSP paper, bashful blue of course. The slot punched was used for the corners (dusted off that retired punch) and a bunch of bb ribbon from all sorts of RO we used to have. That large oval punch is very nice, and these nice/plain/tasteful cards were a simp! Sera

Happy New Year!

Hello everyone and happy new year, sistas! Here is a quick snapshot of the Noel also made. The felt ribbon really ties nicely so this gift was a snap! Have a great day! Sera
