I Think You Are:

Hello, hello!
I whipped up a card using journaling cards, and a sticker from the My Crush "Besties" assortment.  These are awesome little bits and pieces to use in a book, but they can be a lot of fun for cards too!
I added some twine, a paperclip, plus some washi tape along the bottom.  (The yellow washi snuck it's way onto this card, but it was from my stash, not from CTMH. Gasp! sorry!) 

Don't be afraid to cover up or alter what doesn't work for you.  The background card, with the stripes along the top actually had text on it, which didn't work with my card, so I simply covered it up.  Make products do what you want them to do! It's okay to cover something up with a sticker, or layer something over it!! 
Thanks for stopping by today!

National Stamping Month: September 2013

September Stamp of the Month {Poster Tidings}

When I was in Fort Myers, I had the treat of sneak-peeking all of the Stamps of the Month from the current catalog.  I whipped up some projects to show them off to you, and I am pleased to introduce Poster Tidings, September's SOM.  (Because yes. . .it is SEPTEMBER! eeeks!)

This stamp set is composed of two large stamps, perfect for filling most of a 4.25x5.5 card.  (They would also make terrific tags or layout embellishments!!)

I was going for a chalkboard look on this first card, and I added some of the new Ruby chevron ribbon.   

 And on this second card, using the 2nd stamp set I created a fun fall card.  I added some of the Trinkets Wood Shapes.  You can add color to these cute little embellishments, but I love the look of the bare wood, especially for fall!

Remember you can score the September Stamp of the Month, Poster Tidings, for just $5 when you spend $50 this month!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
