This Robot stamp set is really growing on me! It is super cute and I happened to get some robot paper that inspired me to create my own background paper using the various robot stamps. Adding a little glitter to his big heart was a nice touch. 🙂

So, I’m not “too” far behind with my Project 12 layouts (see the sidebar button for Project 12) having only March to go after this. What I have realized is that I need to take more pictures!

This layout was super fun to put together. I used all my fav products – BasicGrey, glitter and stamping. The BasicGrey paper is from the “Blush” collection, remember that one? An oldie but goodie with the great tones of red/pink, brown and turquoise. How yummy!

I used a new Sizzix die that I got on clearance at Michael’s for like $3.99 or something silly! Its’ the heart beauty in mint glitter. All of the heart stamps are from various Ippity sets, just so pretty! Gotta love that Becky Fleck sketch too.

We traded cards at Rubber Stamp Chat in March (yes, I’m terribly late) for the theme of “Girl Scout Day”. I was never a Girl Scout and honestly don’t know much about the organization. I do know that many are proud to be associated with it and have made lasting relationships with friends from their Girl Scout Days.

So, March’s 1:1 card swap was about Girl Scout Day! I used my best imaginatory powers plus a Girl Scout cookie box from a friend (thanks Cindy) to create this fun card. I had fun with the colors and loved the cheery feel to the card.

Supplies:
Girl Scout cookie box
Prism cardstock

I just loved these pics from DB’s trip back home last year. So peaceful and serene. The location is the coast of Maine in June. Nice weather and cool at night. He had a great time and these shots he took are great! I had to do some stamping in there using Ippity and Unity stamps. Needed some glitter and heat embossing too. 🙂

Hello there! I love the Card of the Month (COTM) classes that I teach at Cherry Blossom Studio because they use one of my favorite products (BasicGrey) and the cards are great! We always incorporate some 3-d thing like brads, buttons or ribbon which makes it fun and interesting.

I’ll be teaching Capella on May 10th and June 11th from 7-9pm.

I’ll be teaching Max & Whiskers on May 17th and June 14th from 7-9pm.

Go to Cherry Blossom Studio to sign up! For just $25, you’ll make 12 cards AND keep all the extra supplies for yourself!
