March SOTM: Floral Happiness

Welcome to the March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! Spring is almost here...the flowers are just beginning to bloom and our March Stamp of the Month, Floral Happiness is blooming too. If you've arrived here from Angel's blog, you're on the right track. If this is your first stop, following along is simple. Just click the link at the bottom of each blog post to be directed to the next talented consultant's blog (we've got almost 60 creative ladies sharing this month)!

The March Stamp of the Month is a gorgeous base and shade stamp set with a collection of adorable "Happiness is..." matter what happiness is to you, this set has it covered (well, almost!)

This standard sized card pairs Floral Happiness with our new For Always paper packet. For Always is a gorgeous black and white neutral set that can be used on its own, or add your favorite color for a little pop. This time I chose to add a little Ruby for an elegant look! The two Slate stripes are made with the brand new Slate Washi Tape.

Time to hop along and see what Shirley Ross has created to share with us!

Remember, the Floral Happiness set is available through March 31st for $17.95 or just $5 when you place a $50 order. Head over to my website today to get yours!

New Product Blog Hop: Spring/Summer 2013

Welcome to the Spring/Summer 2013 New Product Blog Hop!

Have you checked it out yet? The brand new Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book is filled with amazing new products for all your papercrafting needs. I am simply in love with this book and all the goodies it features! We have over 30 incredibly talented consultant who are equally enamored with this issue and just can't wait to share some of their very first creation using all new products!

If you've arrived here from Wendy Kessler's blog, you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, following along is easy. Simply follow the links at the bottom of each blog post until you arrive right back here.

Nothing shouts spring nearly as much as the gorgeous new Chantilly My Reflections kit, my favorite of the Spring/Summer Idea Book. Chantilly features blooms and blossoms, as well as paisleys and birds in a fun, cheery color palette.

To create this 8" x 3 1/2" card, I paired the Chantilly papers with the new Perfect Fit-Birthday stamp set (B1417). A little ink distressing using Sweet Leaf ink makes the paper pop just a bit, and the fun Baker's Twine Hemp, found in the Wooden Accents Mini-Medley Collection ties it all together!

Here's another card featuring Chantilly and the Perfect Fit-Birthday stamp set. The Cotton Candy frame is cut on the Cricut using Close to My Heart's Artiste cartridge and stamped with the new Perfect Fit-Frames 2 stamp set (D1586)

Be sure to check out the Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book HERE or contact me (or your own consultant) to get your copy. You won't want to miss this one!

Time to hop along and see what the amazingly talented Alissa Chilton has to share with all of us - I know you won't be disappointed!

February Workshop: For Always

The Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book is out and more popular than ever! You can check out the online version HERE!

If you're like me, the online version is great, but there are times I love to just cuddle up with a warm blanket and my favorite beverage and look through the real thing! If you don't have your copy yet, be sure to contact me. If you are local, you can pick it up, or I can drop one off at your home. If you are not local, I am happy to mail you a copy. Mailed copies are $5 to cover the cost of postage, but I include a $5 coupon to be used on your first order!

Once you see this book, you'll want to make plans to join us for my monthly Scrapbook Nights! Most dates are available now on the Workshops/Events page.

We're starting off with the For Always kit...I simply adore the classic look of this black and white set. It's gorgeous on it's own, but add your favorite color for a bold, fun look!

Join me as we create these TWO gorgeous pages using For Always on Monday, February 18th (6:30pm - 9:00pm). Details can be found on the Workshops/Events page!
