A Curly Congrats!

I have been making cards for a customer and she needed a Jack and Jill/New Home card so I pulled out my retired Good Neighbor set and used some new items to make this card.I used some new In Colors for this card...Pear Pizzazz and (a favorite) Concord Crush. I LOVE the new paper pad you can earn as a level 1 hostess gift. The patterns are different from the last few and are just great!!

I also used the new 1/2" Stitched Poly Ribbon in Concord Crush. I definitely need more!! I like how if feels!!

Sesame Street Punched

I have been making cards for a friend and she needed a birthday card for a little girl. Her invites were Sesame Street so I instantly knew I wanted to try these punched characters!! I have seen lots of them at SCS and they were SO SO easy!! (I am almost thinking of them for my son's 3rd bday but we have a month to decide!)I thought I might have to pull out some retired paper but was surprised at how I found them match well!!

Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie and Pacific Point cardstock
Basic Black marker
Pacific Point ink
Curly Cute stamp set (a newbie and just arrived an hour before!)
Scallop Circle, 1/2in circle, 1 in circle punches

Thanks for looking!!

New Catty Party Goodies!!

I hope you all had a wonderful, relaxing Independence Day!! After a few days of the beach, pool and cookouts I was ready to relax and get stampin!!

I made these "beach" totes today for guests attending my New Catalog Party!! The theme is Luau and I am LOVING the Tropical Party stamp set!!
I got the ideas from this blog Creations by Patti...

Also see blog post here about the New Catty Party!!

I loved the idea of the lattice embossing folder as texture for the totes...looks just like a beach tote!! I will be putting a little something in there!!

You don't wanna miss out!! There is only 20 totes available and first come first served!!

ps. you won't want to go home without your "stamp and save" punch card either!!
