So easy.

ABC storage

My sister is one in a million! She found this little clear box with containers at Meijer and thought of me. She took all amuse products and decorated it for me to put all my tall alphabet letters in for storage. I can now cut all different colors and have them on hand for when I need them. Love this and look at the beautiful bow she made out of our cardstock. Shari you never cease to amaze me!
 Thank you for such a wonderful gift!

snowed out projects

Our stamp club has been snowed out twice in trying to get together. So this month's workshop we decided to go ahead and do a catalog workshop. Everyone sent their orders and then when they arrived we would get together and make the projects and pick up our orders...well guess what...more snow arrived and put a damper on that idea. So I made each of their projects for them and then delivered their orders and projects in time for Valentine's day. Thanks to all for going with the flow of things. A special thank you to my fellow consultants Chelsea Comer and Kamila Younkman for their inspirational ideas. The group loved both cards.

Love machine...

This cute Valentine was created by the amuse studio team...they are a very talented group. 
This little robot is perfect with the sentiment. Love how they popped the balloons for more dimension!

thank you

As some of you already know, one of my favorite stamp sets from amuse studio is the floral duet. I love it's simplicity and style. You can create beautiful cards with ease. I took sheer onyx ribbon and bubble gum and layered them across the bottom of this card. Added a few cut out floral duet flowers and then stamped my sentiment. Simple and easy.

Happy 50th!

I will be needing several 50th birthday cards this year. I love how this one turned out. I used the cupcake companion stamp set along with onyx sheer ribbon that I curled down the card using glue dots to keep it in place. The word celebrate was added over top the ribbon by used three layers of dimensional dots. I wanted it to really stand out...though you can't really tell in this picture.
