Print Poetry for Pals Paper Arts…

So excited to be using some new items available in the Spring Catalog in just a few days on January 3rd !! I used the Hearts A Flutter stamp set with coordinating dies and the Print Poetry DSP- a great value to get a lot of different designs to play with when making a card or craft. I used the Sketch challenge from Pals Paper Arts #149.

Some tags for wrapping…

Some friends and I got together to make some quick gift tags last week…the bottle tags were changed very little from Mary Fish’s tags… I added some branches to the hat and  a felt ribbon scarf to the Snowman that came from Connie Plaumann, and the Do not open ’til Christmas tags were a CASE from Linda Heller. Thanks ladies for the great ideas!!

A musical birthday…

Okay, so here’s the story…I am unexpectedly visiting a family member who needed me in another state. Upon leaving, I  threw a few stamping items in my carry-on so I could keep myself busy in the downtime. Well, I forgot my clear blocks so I improvised with the C plate from my Cuttlebug to stamp my Happy Birthday stamp. Of course, I did not have my usual library of stamps to do a challenge so I stopped into the two national craft stores around and literally could not find but ONE item connected with music for Dynamic Duos # 33 –black and gold!! I used a 40% off coupon on this musical score stamp (3.50)  that I really didn’t think I liked and  picked up two .75 rolls of  black and gold ribbon .  I headed home and thought what can I do with these things? While  perusing my usual challenge sites, I saw retro sketches # 42.   I created my own DSP by stamping on SU Very Vanilla paper with the musical image, bordered the image with the gold ribbon, made a bow with black ribbon, and tied on a loose gold button and the rest is history….In the end, I was happy with the results and fell in love with the musical score stamp;)

A Sneak Peek from the Spring Catalog 2013…

Here’s a sneak peek at the new SU Hearts A Flutter stamp set with coordinating dies ready for order January 3rd from the Spring Catalog- they even come bundled for extra savings!  I also used the current You Are Loved stamp set for the sentiment. These two sets are just perfect for Valentine’s Day that will be here before you know it! I am submitting this to Addicted to CAS #3 for its SWEET challenge.
