Treat Bags!

I've been having so much fun with the new Mini Treat Bag Thinlit (#137547, $39.95)! Although it works with any of our paper, my favorite paper to use is the Typeset DSP (#133704, $12.95). It's thinner than regular DSP, and works great for this particular bag.

Here is my favorite way to use the bag - as a card! You can see the slip of Blushing Bride cardstock peeking out of the top. Just slide it out and write your note! This whole "card" will fit in a standard size envelope to be mailed!

Here's another version... same thing, only folded over and stapled. (There's one of those yummy flat Ghirardelli chocolate squares tucked away inside!)

I'm sure you'll be seeing more of these Treat Bags - it's a favorite of mine!

Here is a fun masculine Valentine set that is available in the new Occasions Catalog! It's called "Wood You Be Mine?" This card was designed by my talented upline, Amy Taylor.

Don't forget to make your man a homemade card this Valentine's Day!

Lotus Blossom

Lotus Blossom has to be my favorite set from the new Sale-a-Bration brochure - it is simply gorgeous!! ...and the fact that you can get this set for FREE makes it all the sweeter! Remember that for every $50 spent (before tax & shipping), you get to choose an item from the Sale-a-Bration brochure for FREE! And with our new Occasions Catalog, spending $50 is a piece of cake! Both of these new catalogs are shown below. Click on the image to view the catalog.

Here are a few cards I've made so far using my FREE Lotus Blossom set:

It's a two-step stamp set, which simply means you create the flower using layers. It's three layers, but you only need two colors of ink to make the blossom, because you can "stamp off" on the third layer making it a little lighter than the second layer.

This last one is a CASE straight out of the Sale-a-Bration brochure on page 6...

Have you gotten YOUR free set yet?! Sale-a-Bration only runs through March 31st, so don't delay!

Happy New Year!

It's been a long time, but I'm happy to be back! I'm not good with keeping resolutions (who is?!), but I do INTEND to be better about keeping this blog updated. ;) I also plan to have at least one workshop each month, and to send out my monthly newsletter again... sheesh! that's a lot of intentions!

This month, my workshop will focus on NON-card projects! For instance, we will be making this adorable penguin box made from the Curvy Keepsake Box framelit. It's so simple and completely adorable!

I hope you have big plans for a terrific 2015!
