I made 81 of these 3 x3 cards for a Convention swap and while I am unable to attend Convention this year (sigh) my sweet Sideline Rose volunteered to swap these for me. I used my stand by Vintage Vogue with Baja Breeze Ink and the awesome seam binding ribbon in Pear Pizzazz.


This is a set that I have not used very much and I have no idea why-I love it. The beautiful blue that you see is brand spanking new In Color in the new catalog premiering July 1, 2011 called Pool Party and trust me it is even prettier in person-don't you just love the name too? I also used an old stand by Vintage Vogue, which thankfully has not been retired. This is my invitation to my catalog premier party on July 9, 2011. If you live in the RI/CT area and would like to attend, send me an email-we would love to have you!


I LOVE the bright pink color in this new designer series paper from the brand new catalog released July 1, 2011! The center lace is actually a 12 x 12 sheet of paper that you can cut into 36 pieces-it is also double sided if you want white. The lace on the side is a brand new lace punch and is quickly becoming my new favorite! Wait until you see the new catalog, you won't be disappointed. If you do not have a demonstrator and would like a catalog, feel free to email me! Have a good day.


These ice cream cones are all over the web and I just love them! I participate in a monthly punch art swap and this month's theme was summertime-what is more appropriate than an ice cream cone! I used the large scallop punch to create the top and cut them in half. I am very happy with how it turned out. The DSP is a sneak peek from the new catalog -(notice the purple :)


My Dad loves fishing and goes any chance he can (now that he is retired!). I saw these cool fishing vest cards on Splitcoaststampers and thought I'd try it. I added some lures to give it a 3-d effect-plus I figured he could actually use them! He got a kick out of it. Have a good day!

anyone who knows me knows I LOVE purple-my bedroom is purple, etc. When Stampin' Up! retired several light purples, I was bummed! Now, I am happy as they brought back the most beautiful color purple-like a shade of lilac and it coordinates perfectly with concord crush. This card uses brand new designer series paper and the wisteria wonder cardstock and ink. Hopefully will work on some more new projects to show! If you live in the area and would like to come to my open house, send me an email. I would love to have you.


That is all I am going to show you. It officially doesn't post until July 1, 2011, but I received the o.k. to give out the advanced order catalogs to my customers on 6/20/11. You will NOT be disappointed, it is amazing! Lots of new stamps, embellishments, designer paper is to die for! I am planning an open house in July where we will case projects from the new catalog. More to come on that later.
