Fabulous Five for July!

Fabulous Five for July a day early!   This set is the new
Apple Blossoms.  It is a beautiful set, just kinda funny that
there is all these natural leaves and flowers and then an apple!
Sooo.... I made most of the cards with the natural leaves and such
and one apple card,   I am going to now offer the Fabulous Five each
month as a class that you can  purchase for use for your workshops and
camps.   The class will give you the directions to make the Fabulous Five.
You will be given the colors and stamp set information so that if you need
to order these items you can do so thru me or if you are a demonstrator you
will know what you will need.  
Tomorrow the 2010-11 Idea and Catalog will go live so if you need one please
email me so that I can get one out to you!   xoxo

Pike Place Market and the Columbia Tower

What a great day with the girls!  We headed down to Seattle to
spend the day at the Pike Street Market, a fav here in the
city.  There is sooo much to see and do.  It is always so
much fun to see the fish market throw the fish and then go
and buy the yummy mini donuts.  Today they had lots of
sampling for the customers.  I felt like I was in Costco!
We also went to visit an old friend of mine who has
Lopriore's Pizza and Pasta restaurant at Post Alley,  it was
so fun to see him and he spoiled us with his yumo Alfredo
fare.  We then went up to the Columbia Tower where
my husband happens to work.  We took the girls to the 73rd
floor which is the observation deck where as you can see by
the photos a 360 degree view of the city and Elliot Bay.  It was just
breathtaking.  The girls absolutely loved it!  It was
a great day!  xoxo  Check out the
picture of Shelby holding the Space Needle in her hand!

More Because I care

A bit more of the DSP Newsprint accompanied by the
stamp set Because I care.  This red is the new Cherry
Cobbler,  such a beautiful rich color.  The green is also
new and called Pear Pizzaz.  Enjoy!  xoxo

More Greenhouse Gala

Here are some more quick and easy Greenhouse Gala cards
I put together.   The first is your basic card size but instead
of just adhering down the whole piece I took the corner and
rolled it ever so slightly and then attached it. Very easy to
do and a nice little touch.   The other card is same basic
card size just torn each piece diagonally and then
set down with adhesive.  Have fun trying these.  xoxo
Only one more week till you can order all these
beauties!   xoxo

Fabulous Five for June!

Here is this month's Fabulous Five.  If you are new to my website I will
explain to you what fabulous five is.  It is where I take a stamp set
and try to make 5 different things with it. Today I am  using the stamp set
First Day, it is featured in our Summer Mini catalog.  Kirstin came over
today and brought this set and we just went to town creating.  What a
great idea wrapping a bottle of anti bacterial soap for a teacher!
And they turned out so cute!  The last two pictures are of a small
memo pad I found at the Dollar tree,  I covered it with
basic black card and then stamped it and added some of the
cute images from the stamp set.  Very easy!  Let me know
if you have any questions.   xoxo

this is what I have been up to! phew!

Been absent the last few days buried deep into
getting things ready for my Daughter's 9th grade
graduation party.  It's theme is "An evening in Paris"
I have been making 250 bags, filling them with yes
you are reading this right 1000 pieces of chocolate
Eiffel towers that I have made!  I am now officially
a chocolatier!  My friends would say otherwise that
I probably ate as many as I made!  Ha!
But here is what I have been busy doing as well as
year end recitals which I am very sure many of you
have been doing as well.  I will post some of those
pics after I edit them.  The second picture is of the
invitation that I designed for the school to send out.   I am getting a bit of reprive today as Kirstin my stamping buddy is coming over so that we can get out all the new SU! goodies and play!   Yes,  I will post what we come up with!  xoxo
