3x3 Card

I just love cards of different sizes. I used a 3x6 piece of paper folded in half to make a 3x3 card. This is a great size to give with a gift, quick Thank You note or a hand delivered invitation.

I used the Pewter Hodge Podge Kit, 5 petal punch and some rub ons. Very simple and fast!

Dare to be Fabulous!

Gift Bag

This gift bag was featured in our "On Stage" magazine (one of many tools Stampin' Up! gives to us.) I love it! plus I have a ton of 12x12 paper I wanted to use up-- who doesn't collect paper ;) If you like what you see here is a link to the instructions and pattern so you too can make it~

Very important: do you see the tape in this picture? It is sticky tape and your project will not work without it. The bond on this tape is very, very strong and perfect for any creation that will have any amount of movement to it. It is found on page 186 of the current catalog. It is only $6.95 for 10 yards! Great deal, great bond.

I so enjoy working with our papers. Look how beautiful it all lines up.

The finishing touch is the Jumbo brads. I adhered them using the Crop-A-Dile.

Here is the end result:

Thanks for looking and have a Fabulous day!


Question to comment

what did you use to make the swirl holes in the paper?

I used the new punch that will be available August 12th to purchase. Here is a picture of it.

This stamp set is a Hostess level two set. It is called Spring Solitude. Card stock is Choc. Chip and Cameo Coral. I embossed the image with black embossing powder. This creates a small "wall" around your image so when you apply the bleach it stays in that area. You apply the bleach with a paint brush. Just move it where ever you want it to become white. I stamped the Thank You in Whisper White Craft ink. Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks, Sue

I used the "Home" Simply Scrappin' Kit-- This kit is retiring so act fast if you want to order it and begin working on your project. I also used our clear envelopes to place the pictures in.
Here is another view of it. Can you tell I am very proud ;)

New Punch

Yep you guessed it. This is our new Punch. When you attend my Open House in August I will be showing you how to use this fabulous new tool.

This just gives you a better idea on how your paper will look after it is punched. The Baja Breeze (light blue paper) is there so you can see the scallops on the Pacific Point (dark blue) paper better. There you go you also have two new buzz words. Baja Breeze and Pacific Point are two of the new In Color papers.
Have a Fabulous Day
