a little more love!

I have a little more LOVE for you this week, using the NEW Sweetheart paper, and Affection stamp set (plus one of those cute pink buttons!) You can create lots of cute mixy-matchy flowers and hearts with this stamp set. And isn't it about time to whip up some Valentines? Even if you don't have these new products, the layout of this card (and last week's) would be pretty easy to duplicate using other adorable stamps and papers!!!! So give it a try! And if you do, be sure to link us up to your creation! We would love to see it!!!!

Wings Workshop on the Go Kit

Wings Workshop on the Go Kit
from the new Spring/Summer 2011 Idea Book

The new Wings WOTG kit includes a stamp set and papers I really like.  The kit also has a color brochure for creating scrapbook layouts and cards.  The card above is not one of the cards in the brochure, but it does use the supplies in the kit.  This is a fast card to create!

new! new! new!

I received not one. . .but TWO boxes of CTMH goodies in the mail on Tuesday! (Plus two different magazines with my cards published in them!) It was a BANNER MAIL DAY, that is for sure! So what do you think I did? I sat right down to play of course! On this card, I used NEW patterned paper from the Sweetheart line, along with a NEW stamp set, called Affection. This paper pack features the colors Tulip, Baby Pink, Cotton Candy, and Black.

Love it. Love it. Love it.
Next week I'll have something else NEW to share with you! I have so many new goodies to play with, I can hardly stand it! (Not that I'm bragging or anything! Well. . .maybe just a little!)

Have a terrific weekend!

You Color My World

A few days late, but HERE I AM! Mr. B was sick for the first part of this week, and of COURSE, right about the time he was getting better, I got sick. I think I am finally on the upswing though, and I am happy to be stopping by today with another card using the brand new Wings paper. I also used stamps from Priceless Love. I shared a Valentine card using these stamps, a few weeks ago - and I TOLD you it could be used for so much more than Valentines! (Believe me now?) ;)
I love handcutting the little butterflies from this paper. I added just one little one to the top of my sentiment, and I folded up the wings a bit, and only added adhesive in the center. It adds a fun little bit of dimension.
I have NEW PRODUCT coming to me soon! I can't wait to play, and I can't wait to share my creations with you!
Have a terrific weekend!

Happy New Year!

Have you seen the new paper, Wings? The base of this 4.25x8.5-inch card is Vineyard Berry, and then I layered some of the new Wings patterned papers, topped off with Vineyard Berry pleated ribbon, from the Level 2 Assortment, as well as a black button from the Mini Medley Accent Collection. (You can find both of these things on pages 6-7 of the Inspirations Product Sneak Peek! Speaking of which, have you checked out the Sneak Peek online yet? You will find gorgeous products and ideas using the new Wings kit. The color combo of this kit is GORGEOUS - Vineyard Berry, Juniper, Sweet Leaf, and Black. Simply stunning! I'll be back next week with another card using this paper!

Happy January! See you next week!

(card details: sentiment stamp "Life Is Good" from the Treetops stamp set. The butterflies were hand cut from one of the patterned papers in the kit. Brown twine was from my stash.)
