A New Design

Tangerine Tango...I have fallen in Love!!!
This is a beautiful color to work with and I had fun!! I will definitely be using TT more often.

Stampin' Up Supplies:
Stamp Sets: Short and Sweet, Boho Backgrounds
Card stock: Tangerine Tango, Baha Breeze, Kiwi Kiss (below), Pixie Pink (below) and Whisper White
Tools: Heat Gun, White Embossing Powder, Versamark, Large and Small Oval Punches and Baha Breeze Ribbon, Misc. Wired Ribbon

My New "Favorite Green". Green is one of my favorite colors. I was crazy for Wild Wasabi, I felt it should have stuck around. In our demonstrator survey, I suggested we keep a few In Colors each year, but I Stampin' Up! had other plans that didn't include Wild Wasabi...I was crushed!! The recovery has been MUCH easier since I have discovered that Kiwi Kiss in totally ME!! I love it, it's my New Wild Wasabi!! Much like WW, I feel the need to use it in every project!! So, when I made the card above, you know I HAD to do one in KK as well! I lve this stamp too!! If you don't have BoHo Backgrounds yet, you gotta get it!

Cuttin' More Hair

I played Beautician again!! Today, it was for my niece Dana!! She wanted a little off the length and a few layers cut in...these were the results!

Lucky Me!!

I am one lucky girl!!! I hardly ever "get" the gift!! This time I did...My friend Bekki of Bekki B Stampin' made this beautiful recipe card for me. She made this as the main course for our June Life Group Meeting and it was YUMMY! So yummy I told her I have to have the recipe!! So instead of just jotting it down on a scrap of paper, I got this! Yipppeee!!!

Paper Bag Albums

A Christmas Themed Paper Bag album I made last winter using Stampin' Up! Winter Bright - Simply Scrappin' Kit! Crazy for those kits!!

I LOVE these little Paper Bag Albums!!! They are so fun to do, not as quick as a card, but not as long as working on a big scrapbook! I used SU! Designer Paper and the Boatloads of Love Stamp Set.
Did I mention what great gifts they make? Well, they do!!! On this one, I used: Stampin' Up! of course....Crew Girl Simply Scrappin' Kit and A Little Birdie told Me

I think I feel like making another!!!!
