SOTM Club March Tag

Happy Friday My Blogger Friends!
10-Short Days till my daughter arrives!
Today I am heading out for my Scissors and the City Retreat......And meeting up with 5-of my Phoenix GalPals.  We are spending the entire weekend at the Tucson Hilton Garden Inn and we will be doing some SERIOUS PaperCrafting ALL WEEKEND LONG!  My goal is to work on Twoie's 1st year album.....And hopefully have it done by the time my daughter arrives.
My share for today are my Stamp of the Month Club Thank-You tags that I made for March.
The stamp set for March was the "Big News" set.  I used the 'WooHoo' stamp and created three colorful banner flags and added a stamped 'thank you!' between each banner flag.
The colors are bright and fun ....... And I'm loving the way this tag turned out.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you the gifts I made for my Scissors and the City gals ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

So happy for you!

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends
11-Short Days till my daughter arrives!
We had a blast at Stamp Camp yesterday.......And the ladies walked away with SEVERAL new stamping techniques to try out when they got home.  I think the most favorite technique of mine was using Embossing Folders to stamp with.  Hopefully......I can share some of those techniques with you in the next couple of weeks.  My share today is a pretty congrats card I made last month for my downlines who reached specific sales status.   Well.......I liked the design so much.....I changed up the sentiment and created this darling 'So happy for you' card.
Talk about bright and happy......
This is my Calypso Coral version......
The sentiment was stamped with Bermuda Bay ink.....
And some punched butterflies were added to the card - Which had pearls added to the center of each butterflies body........And I used my Blendabilities to color in the three pearls.
And here is my Bermuda Bay version.



How fun is this 'WooHoo' stamped tag!
I leave you today with both samples Side by Side!

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you a fun little tag I created ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Gift Basket Donation

Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friends
12-Short Days till my daughter arrives!
It's Stamp Camp today.....And I have 4-FABULOUSLY FUN TECHNIQUE CARDS to teach my Camp Gals.  I'm so excited to share some fun techniques with these gals and hope to share those techniques with you later in the month.  My share for today is an amazing gift basket I donated to a local charity last month.  Let me share that gift basket with you now.......
My neighbor asked me if I would be willing to donate my time and talent for a local charity.......And this is the fun gift basket I made up.
I wanted to do something a little different for this donation.......So we are going to do an "Sit, Snip and Sip" card making class.
So the "Sit" portion of this donation was this darling little chair basket that I found at Pier 1.  The "Sit" portion also refers to the guest actually sitting and creating 4-lovely cards........
The 'Snip' portion of my gift basket is the actual card creation.  Here is card #1.....
This is card #2......
Here's card #3.......
And this is the final card #4.
And the 'Sip' portion of my gift basket is of course a bottle of Wine (and chocolates).
So to secure the card samples to the chair......I attached them with clothespins that were covered with Washi Tape.
I wrapped the entire basket up with clear plastic......and topped it off with a PRETTY RED BOW!  I heard that the event was a HUGE HIT and brought in lots of money for my neighbors charity.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a fun little tag with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Saddle-UP! Gift Bag

Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends
13-Short Days till my daughter arrives!
Today I have several things on my plate.  As I get ready for an upcoming Stampin' UP! meeting ....... And put the finishing touches on my April Stamp Camp tomorrow .......... I want to share with you a darling little gift bag that we created at my last Saddle-UP! Event.  
This bag was not only serving as a darling little project idea for my Saddle-UP! Event ........ But also served as a way for the ladies who attended my event to take home their 20-completed projects.
We used the 'Chalk Talk' set and Coastal Cabana ink to create this beautiful tag for the front of our bags.......
And the 'Petal Potpourri' set was used to create the beautiful flowers for the front of our bag.
We used Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay to create our flowers.
The bags were a HUGE HIT and the ladies were able to fill them up with all their completed Saddle-UP! Event projects.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share my Downline Thank You card from last month with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Sheltering Tree Tag

Happy Monday My Blogger Friends
14-Short Days till my daughter arrives!
Today I have a fun gift tag idea to share with you.  It's one that I created for the ladies who are in my Stamp-of-the-Month Club.  Each month......I make a special tag for everyone in this club as a way of thanking them for being part of this special club.  Our stamp set for April is the 'Sheltering Tree' set and here is the tag the ladies received from me.
This tag uses Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede ink for the stamped tree image.......
And I added Cherry Cobbler Chevron Ribbon for the top of my tag.
The bicycle was stamped with Smoky Slate and Cherry Cobbler ink.
For that little extra WOW FACTOR..........I added a single Cherry Cobbler heart that was punched out using the heart border punch..........And then I added some Crystal Effects over the top of the heart to give it a glossy finish and help make it STAND OUT BIG on my tag.
DARLING little tag for a truly AMAZING stamp set.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a pretty gift bag idea with you   ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
