New Stamps...

New stamps have been coming in from Rubber Soul and Inkadinkado. Below is a card that I made from the "Lemonade Stand" and "When life gives you lemons" stamps from Rubber Soul.

Here is a close up where I added some Stickles to the lemons...

Now the inside saying was printed on my computer. The way things have been going lately, I could really use a pitcher of margaritas!

Changito graduates

My friend Kelsey just graduated from Villa Maria and is on her way to Los Angeles, CA for fashion school! I tried to use Villa's school colors for her graduation card.

I used my JustRite stamps for the 2009 on top of the books and Cuttlebug "Congrats" for the background.

Cheers for Changito

I needed to make some "fun" type of Birthday cards for some summer birthdays coming up. Good thing Changito seems to be gender neutral!

I used some of the Doodlebug green glitter for the pom-pom to sparkle it up a bit. I made the bullhorn polka dotted by using the masking technique.

If you stamp onto a scrap piece of paper and cut out very close to the line it looks like you actually colored it that way! Just cut it out and stick it onto your stamped image.

New products

Just in time for graduation cards and scrapbook pages are more custom school papers. Some of the schools in stock now are....
Penn State, McDowell, Fairview, Girard, Harborcreek, Grover Cleveland, Villa Maria, Strong Vincent, North East, Iroquois, and General McLane. I even have some Pittsbugh Steelers and Cleveland Browns paper too!

A new line from My Mind's Eye called "Just Dreamy" arrived a couple weeks ago. This line has 40 different papers with tons of matching embellishments.

Doodlebug just released way too many cute stickers and papers. There are Zoo and Jungle themes, Nature/Camping, Birthday, and summer fruit like Strawberries and Cherries. Too adorable to pass up!

My Super Hero!

In the theme of Father's Day I thought this cute pup from "The Cats Pajamas" would be perfect. I have a new clear ruler from Tim Holtz that doubles as a paper piercing template so you can pierce holes straight and evenly spaced.

For this card I pierced every other hole. Its a nice effect when you just need to add a little something. Here is the link to the YouTube video that shows the ruler in action...

I have been carrying the "Fergie" frog stamps for a while now but just hadn't gotten the chance to use them yet. I was inspired to use him with the "Distressed stripes" Cuttlebug folder thanks to my blogger friend Michelle (Thanks Michelle!)
The distressed stripes folder is new to the shop for those of you that have almost all of them!
