Out of Town

I have been out of town and will be gone until October 2, 2009. A couple of family members are having surgery and we have gone to be with them. One surgery is over and went well. The next one is scheduled for Tuesday and we hope it goes well also. See you when I get home.

Acrylic Album

I think I have all these pages in order now. I just got this completed and don't really know for sure what I'm going to do with it. It might be a gift for a family member after I add some photos. This is all Stampin' Up! products and I really enjoyed making it. I also used some punches, ribbon and various trinkets from my stash.
This is my first time using those wonderful thick Window Sheets and Stampin' Up! Scallop Square and the Big Shot. They are just so easy to cut. I used both the Merry & Bright and the Icicle Rub-Ons from Stampin' Up! The card stock is both Real Red and Soft Suede along with the Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Here is the cover:

Next set of pages:

Last page and Window Sheet back with Snowflake from Icicle Rub Ons. These are so easy to use and really do add a lot. Hope you enjoy this project. Have a great stampin' day!!

While I'm still here

Here are 3 more that are all Stampin' Up! Back later with more details.

Using blue for Christmas

I keep getting further behind but needed to get another card posted. This is all Stampin' Up! products.
Card stock: Brilliant Blue and Whisper White
Ink: Brilliant Blue
Stamp Sets: Serene Snowflakes and Delightful Decorations
Accessories: Sponged edges, Shimmer Paint, Ornament Punch, Merry & Bright Rub Ons and retired Silver Cord.
I sure hope to have some time later today to get around and see all the wonderful work I have been missing. Since the weather has been so nice outside I have been really busy in my flower gardens. Trying to get caught up there. Can someone please give me the secret for staying up to date with everything. Have a great day my friends!

Here we go again........

Yup, another Christmas card! I just love the new Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Paper from Stampin' Up! I used the Petals-A-Plenty Impression Folder and Shimmery card stock for my base card. A slice of that new paper and a simple Merry Christmas from Christmas Greetings along with that wonderful star from the Holy Family stamp set. Simple,easy but I think elegant. Added the Whisper White Organza ribbon and it is finished.
