Sweet Summer 12x12

The new Doodlebug lines are so adorable that I was dying to make some new pages with it.

This is using the new Fruit Stand line.  I connected the title "sweet summer" above with green/white twine, and pop dotted some of the fruit.

New Style of Crop Parties

I wanted to try out something a little different for crops, we are going to try "Mini Crop" days!

Work on your scrapbooks or card making and spend the afternoon with friends.

Where:  Hoss's Steakhouse
When:  April 27th from 9 am - 4 pm.
What:   Pice includes morning donuts, coffee, tea, etc.
             Lunch is all you can eat soup, salad, and dessert bar.
             Drinks included throughout the day.
             Chinese auction, door prizes, and a coupon to use at the store.
Cost: $15

I wanted to try something different since so many people told me that they have a hard time getting away for the entire day.  This way you can get some crafting done and still have the evening free.

Space is limited so sign up soon!

When I saw this stamp I just had to have it, I have a brother and a Brother-in-law in the Army.

Im a little late getting this card in the mail since my brother's birthday is this weekend, but its the thought that counts sometimes!

My brother-in-law is recovering from a severe head injury so I wanted to send him a Get Well greeting.
"Guy" cards can be tough sometimes... its hard not to jazz them up too much with flowers and gems!
I punched the top of this one with a star border punch.  I did add 2 sparkly red gems, but that goes with the red, white, and blue theme.

April Card Class (2013)

In this workshop we will be stamping 5 all occasion cards with envelopes.
There are a lot of new dies and embossing folders coming out so this was my chance to use them.
The card above uses the Bumble Bee Borders embossing folder.

Its hard to tell in the photo but the Mason jar and firefly are cut out with a metal die.
This stamp set has a set of matching dies to coordinate. 
There are also glittery wings on the fireflys.

This Flying By set is also another one with stamps and dies to match for the paper airplanes.

We will be using a new technique to make your embossed images stand out with ink.
(Sorry, this one was hard to photograph)
