March Madness

Today is a GREAT day for the Dayton Flyers!
I could not resist a card today in honor of all Flyer fans.
The air plane stamp is from the old Amuse Art Stamps and the cloud paper is part of our new 6 x 6 paper pack. The letters are our tall alphabet die.
The Flyers are part of the Elite 8 playing for a chance to go to the Final Four...let's do it Flyers!

happy easter

My friend took a class with a SU gal and made this framed piece of art that is interchangeable for each holiday. It is simply beautiful with all the cute Easter designs that sparkle and are layered. She can change it out of the frame each holiday. Love it!

This is such a great treat for all your little chicks at Easter. The amuse studio gals came up with this idea and I couldn't help but steal it. We made these at Sunday's workshop and they were a big hit.

happy spring

hello spring...
you could use any sentiment for this card. 
I used the grass from snail and company stamp set, cut all colors from the new flower dies and added a little gem to the center.
A very simple and quick card. Love this!

Spring workshop

Finally spring has sprung...well at least in our stamp club! Snow arrives again tomorrow!
We had a small group this time due to illness, work and school committments,
but we still had a great time!
Look at those beautiful spring ink colors on the table....ahhh!

Each person received a little treat bag with our new bunny die on the outside along with a sample of each of three of the new colors of cording. 

I love stamping a design on the area worksheet and this little fella is from the color me happy stamp set. We created a few projects using this wonderful stamp set...a must have for your Easter card making!

Our projects of the day. The tails treat and the color me happy card were ideas found over at amuse studio blog and the hello spring was a great addition using our new spring flower dies. Love those!

We enjoyed an evening of stamping, friendship, and good eats.
We missed you Jeanne, Regina, and Colleen. 
Casey you were a great hostess...thanks ladies, you're the best!

candy jar lid toppers

I made a few extra holiday magnetic toppers for a small candy jar that I sold at my craft fairs last year. I was asked to have other holiday lids for the upcoming craft fairs this year and so I made two for our holidays coming up. I love how the little bunny is peeking out from behind an array of flowers. Love that new 6 x 6 paper pack! I still need a few more holidays to make the set complete....stay tuned.

Love always...

I have been in the simple and easy card making mode lately. I love how our new 6 x 6 paper pack makes it that much easier. The heart is from our heart trio die set and the words are from "at first sight" stamp set.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I mailed a few St. Patrick's Day cards out this year and here are the two I made 
using fern and onyx as the card base.
The shamrock punch is from Martha Stewart.

you make....

I LOVE this card! 
It was as easy as can be to make. 
I simply stamped the sentiment from hand scripted, cut a heart from bubblegum cardstock using our heart trio die was that simple!

easter treat bag

Look how cute this Easter treat bag turned out using amuse's new crepe paper! I just love everything about this...and it is so simple to make. I used our new bunny die, added pop dots to make it dimensional. I stamped my sentiment and added the crepe paper and instantly had a great gift/treat bag.
You can find these small bags at Michaels.

It was a disaster zone after working on wedding invitations.

A very simple card...thanks for the inspiration Chelsea!

Spring guide correction...


Spring Accessories Catalog & Inspiration Guide Correction
The following catalog correction affects two crepe paper colors: Ocean and Saffron.
Due to a manufacturing issue beyond our control, we feel the crepe papers listed as Ocean and Saffron in the Spring Accessories Catalog are no longer an accurate representation of the color.
When these items were arrived at HQ, it was evident the color had shifted significantly from what was originally ordered. We tried our best to correct it with the manufacturer, but feel the colors are still not a good reflection of the Signature Colors listed in the catalog.
While the item numbers in the catalog for both items will remain the same, please make note of these name changes to more accurately reflect the color of the product:
Bermuda, instead of Ocean
Melon, instead of Saffron
Once again, there is no change to the item number.  We do everything we can to avoid these types of corrections, but ask for your understanding and apologize for the inconvenience.
