Scrapbook pages

I am so excited to post my first scrapbook pages for you.  I would love to get together a scrapbook club, so if you find my designs pretty and want to join please let me know.  Here are the pages....

It is a dual page spread.  The last picture is a close up of the right hand page.  I love this new flower punch it is in the current Occasions catalog.  The name of the punch is Blossom petal XL.  The stamp set is Build a Blossom.  The other larger flowers are from the Cherry Blossom embosslits on page 215 of the catalog.  The butterfly and the smaller flowers are from the God's Beauty stamp set, regretfully it is retired.  However there are other butterfly sets that are in the catalog and a gorgeous new butterfly stamp in the Summer Occasions catalog called Strength & Hope.  Wait until you see it!  Gorgeous!

Well I hope you enjoyed the first scrapbook pages.  They put me in a springtime mood.  What do you think?

Retired paper

I love Stampin' Up paper, some more than others.  The paper I was heartbroken to see go was Cottage Wall.  I probably brought most of the stock in this beauty.  So, it's time for me to start using it since that it what it is here for.. Right?  Here are a couple of project made with Cottage Wall, Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzaz!

The first picture is a recipe box that I made with instructions by Jill.  It uses the From the kitchen of stamp set, which is found on page 134 of the catalog.  It is a great set to own if you like to give gifts of food and want to enclose recipes.  The second and third pictures are of a little metal box that I brought from Michaels.  The flower on the top is made from the Flower, Daisies #2 die found on page 207.  I saw the flower on line somewhere and at some point I hope to find the demonstrator who I found this from.  (If you find this please give me a notice and I will link back to your blog...)  The last picture is of a purse that I made from another template from Jill.  She is great!  The cards are made with Flight of the Butterfly stamp set on page 102.  It is one of my favorites!  The envelopes are even stamped to continue the theme.  Adorable huh?

Wouldn't you love to receive the last picture as a gift?  I know I would!  Have a great day.  Thank you for stopping by!

Another Stamp Camp from Jill

I will say it is really nice to go to my up-line's house to make projects.  She is wonderfully talented.  Plus it is fun to chat with the other demonstrators and laugh!  Here is what we made....

It is a card holder and the most adorable monogram cards.  I love it!  Don't you?

Thanks again Jill!  You rock!

Thanks Jill!

So on Friday night I went to my upline's house for a class.  We made the most adorable picture.  I am thinking about giving one to each of my friends as a gift.  I love it that much!  Tell me what you think!

Happy Belated St. Patrick's Day!!!

Wow!  It took me a long time to post something.  I do apologize!  Hopefully, I will be on a roll now.  So, St. Patrick's day just passed and I would like to share what I made for my daughter's class.  I was snack mom the day before St. Patrick's day so I got Irish green and white cupcakes for the kids and I gave out a pot of gold to each kid in class.  I think they turned out cute.  Let me know what you think!
