Cheep Talkin'

Been another long week for me personally! I won't bore you with the details but I have Crohns Disease and it decided to make a presence back in my life after living without for 5-6 yrs! Never heard of it? Your probably lucky :) but to bring awareness (not a disease that people like to talk about) you can visit http://www.ccfa.corg/ I know there are many of you who suffer from some form of IBD...we are not alone!

Anyhow......back to the fun stamping...have I told you how much I LOVE the Cheep Talk set? So fun to work with....I just love it!!! Below are some pages/cards we made at our March Club Gathering! I wanted something bring and Springy.....sorry for the poor quality pictures lately..I have had to take them at night and they are just not turning out....

This page probably looks familiar to you...if not check a few posts ago...I did this same layout with the Sweet Always paper. I used the Rainbow Sherbet DSP and went with the colors in the paper for my main element and background! We also used the 3 flower punch to add a flower to the branch.
These were the 2 6x6 pages the girls who came with their moms to scrap for the Mom and Me scrapin club. We used the 1 3/8 in circle punch and the scallop circle punch to make the border. on the right page we also used the 3 flower punch along with a rhinestone brad.

Here is what the card club made this month.... Same idea as the page just transferred to a card! We used some green glitter for his him some bling!

Just Hockey....

Well here is what I was up to this weekend! Julian hockey is coming to an end and they had an end of season party for the kids on Saturday after their scrimmage yesterday. We were all asked to bring something so I brought some cheese and pepperoni snacks (wish I would have taken a easy and kids love them) and then the cute treat bags below for the team. I put a couple GS Thin Mint cookiesin there...thought they resembled hockey pucks! I almost only put one cookie in each bag and saved the rest for me but I resisted! LOL At the brunch the kids were presented with a certificate and a metal...the picture to the left is Julian right after he rec his...he was trilled with the metal...he wore it the rest of the day and told anyone who would listen about it!
So the details.... I used 2 stamp sets for the bags...Sporting Goods and Just Hockey (retired) I also used my Big Shot Top Note die (perfect size for the small cello bags). I know your wondering why I picked the colors I did? Unfortunately those are the team I went with it! I snapped the picture as I was running out the door to hockey so the pics are not great but I wanted to share!

Another Good Egg...

It was so late last night when I posted the Good Egg Scrapbook pages and Glitter Window Technique that I forgot about this super cute card we did at my last Card Class! The idea was not my own...there is various versions of it around! You can't tell in this picture but we used the small Polka Dot texture plates on the pretty in pink cardstock. We colored the Egg in with our Stampin Pastels and cut it out! I am off to start my day! Hope your day is great!

A Good Egg Easter ideas...

Well it is very late but I wanted to post these quickly! These are some more Easter samples for you! These were done at our Scrapbook & Card club this month! The pictures are not the greatest I have ever took but the lighting stunk and the camera was not the best one!

The first is the 12x12 page. We used the FREE Sale-A-Bration Delicate Dots DSP across the top along with the scallop edge punch. We also wheeled the new wheel "Egg Hunt" from the sneak peak to the Occasions Mini (see here) We used versamark in the cartridge so it is hard to see in the picture. We cut a top note to put the cute lil' chick on and left some room for journaling on there!
These pages are 6x6 and the pages the girls did that came with their mom's to scrapbooking... The ladies have the option to bring their child to scrap each month!
This cute card was the card clubs technique for the month. The technique we used was the Glitter Window.....Hard to see in this picture...

Here is a close up so you can see the sparkle...not a great picture because I took it late and with my daughters camera and not my good one..

Have fun getting ready for Easter and if you need some supplies or just want some new Easter sets/supplies you can order anytime at and then just click "shop now" in the upper right corner!

Cheep Talk!

I really LOVE this set! I have so many plans for it! This was a card we did at my last card class. I also demonstrated it at Kim's party last Sunday! It uses Cheep Talk set of course, it also used my fav DSP, Sweet Always along with 5/8in grosgrain, 3 flower punch and silver brads. Don't you wish there were pink birds? I do....with this stamp set I can have any color bird I want! Yep I can ! LOL

I also thought I would share this scrapbook page. My good friend Tricia Bloomfield shared with me once the idea of taking a card and opening it up and using it on your scrapbook page! I had forgotten about it til is PERFECT! This is exactly what I did below at Kim's workshop. Kim was so awesome, she had pictures and journaling on it in no time! I wish I would have taken a picture of her page after she put the pics and journaling on! Kim is an awesome scrapbooker! Anywho.... it is perfect because you have your main decorative element and a mat for a picture! Just add your pictures around and some journaling and your done!I added a 3x12 strip from the Sweet Always DSP to tie it all together and you have a fast and beautiful page! What do you think?

Well my last post said it had been a long day, this one should be titled...Been a Long WEEK! Shew! I had such good intentions but then I got sick... I am better know (thanks for asking :) thank goodness! I have so many things to share! A few more things from our last group demonstrator meeting, a couple things from my last card class and some workshop projects I did at Kim and Heather's parties!

Still time but not much! It really is my favorite time of the Stampin Up year for FREEBIES! On to the sharing!

This little gem was a card we did at my last card class. The card uses the Sale-A-Bration set called Botanical Blossoms. Not my orginal, but I can't remember where I CASED it from! I am so good at copying and tweeking but not so good at giving credit where credit is due! So if this looks like something you made let me know!
This cute little treat was made by my friend and upline, Anne Miller. She shared this at our last demonstrator meeting. Super cute little treat using the Top Note Big Shot Die, makes the perfect topper for the our small cello bags.
This is a cute card that was shared at our last meeting. I am not sure who the designer was, but it was great She used the free sale-a-bration set Polka Dot Punches, my favorite sale-a-bration set this year!
Now this was a way cute basket shared by Tamie Ackerson at our last group demonstrator meeting.
Def adorable! she used the free Delicate Dots DSP that is also a free sale-a-bration set! She used one of my favorite new stamp sets cheep talk! I can't stop using this set! perfect for cards and scrapin! Stay tuned for tomorrow's post...I will show you a card and scrapbook page I did with it!

Anyway I have been stamping and scraping alot lately! So much fun... so keep checking back I have lots to share! Last night we had our demonstrator monthly get together and here was one of our make n takes!
Isn't it just the cutest! This little box is made from the Big Shot new die, Box #2. This thing was amazing. It is all one piece and you just need a tiny little bit of sticky strip to hold it together! It comes out of the Big Shot cut and scored! We used the FREE Sale-A-Bration DSP Delicate Dots and then stamped the Bunny from the new set from the soon to be released Occasions Mini Catalog, called Eight Great Greetings. Actually the Mini catalog is not being released until April 1st but Stampin Up! wants to let you in on these great sets to prepare for your Easter projects so the sets below from the Mini Catalog can be ordered now!!

Sale-A-Bration Ideas.. Lovin the FREE Stamps!

This is my favorite time of year....ok anytime anything is FREE is my favorite time, Right? LOL Here are some samples I came up with. A couple were from my last card class. With every $50 you spend you can choose from 1 of 4 free stamps sets, a ribbon bundle or a huge pack of designer paper! What is best is that is if you spent $100 you can pick 2! So it is every $50 and no limit! Whoo Hoo! Hostess are lucky this time a year because they can earn them for FREE on top of everything else they get for hosting! I have a few dates left for March if you want to get in on the FUN! Don't have time? Ask me about a Catalog party!

The first one uses 2 of the free sets. Polka Dot punches and Congrats, both FREE during Sale-A-Bration. I also used the Delicate Dots designer paper. Don't you just love the Flag look? Granted you can't send it in the mail this way but it would be super cute on top of a present or just to sit on a co-workers desk... I also used the paper piercer along the the bottom of the scallop. Really simple card and prettier in person for sure!

This next one was one I was not sure about until I got it and started to play with it! The set is called Botanical Blooms and is also a FREE Sale-A-Bration set. I used the scallop circle die in my Big Shot with my Delicate Dots designer paper (also a FREE SAB prize) Don't you love the vase? I used the large oval punch and cut the top off at an angle and the bottom off. I put a some dots on there with my White Gel Pen (LOVE that thing!) for decoration and also put a white do in each of the scallops.

While we are talking about FREE stamp sets I thought I would share a couple cards I made with new hostess sets...

This first one is cute... it is a 3x3 card. The cupcake is from Darling Dots (level 1) and the phrase is from Sweet Little Sentiments (also Level 1). I used my White Gel Pen on the scallops for some added decoration. I also put some Crystal effects on the Chocolate part of the cupcake but it doesn't show up in the picture.

This last one is also a hostess set called A Little Somethin', which is a Level 2 set. I think of all of them this is my favorite. Why??? Because it works so well with all the punches! You seen the heart in my post from the Valentine treats. this card uses the star from the set which fits in the Lg Star punch PERFECT! It is a MUST have in my book! I also used the new texture plates on the kraft paper for the background. But of course I can not get that to show up in my picture well. If you click on the pic to make it bigger that may help you to see the background.
