Love Free Ribbons

Great time to buy some Stampin, Up! supplies, for each $60.00 you spend you receive a reel of the gorgeous In Color Ribbon. Now what to choose first is my question as I want them all.

Well I have to be realistic as I don’t work full-time as I want to craft heaps, so I could just go place myself a small order now, like the $60.00 and Hey, I will get a free ribbon, next which color is my favorite? How do we choose when they are all so nice?

Well for me, Pink is my just favourite color, so looks like I have chosen.

Sketch Journal for Ten

As the weather is starting to get slightly warmer, decided that it was time to invest in a new water cooler, so had gone shopping for one, instead found this cute little Sketch Journal in KMart and thought I could have a go at covering this with the beautiful new “Fan Fair” paper on page 165 of the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue for 2012-2013, its one of my favourites and I knew that Teneale also liked it, she had covered a tin that she puts on the table when people attend her classes. So thought I could make the journal to match.

Now we call her Ten, so was able to use the Broadsheet Alphabet in the clearmount set #1205858 on page 145. Cost is $60.95 and the greeting from the “Trust God” stamp set, #126702 which is $27.95. The greeting I used was “God has given us two hands – one to receive with and the other to give with” – Billy Graham.

Both the name and greeting were embossed with the New Espresso Embossing Powder. Just a little suggestion of you buy a cheap book with a plastic cover, PLEASE emboss your paper before attaching to the cover, the heat gun just loved trying to curl my front page.

Hope you enjoyed looking and as Teneale didn’t feel well, am sure me popping in with a little gift made all the difference to her.

Blooming with Kindness

Another card using the gorgeous stamp set “Blooming with Kindness”  this time I used the Crumb Cake Cardstock making the card a one layer wonder, I used an aquamarker to drag the color in the flower giving it a little bit of a washed look.  What do you think, I personally love it.

Was in a class the other night and my friend Mari asked why we used craft card stock all the time, we had to tell her that the crumbcake is the most used one and that it had replaced Craft……….not sure she was impressed with us.  I personally love this colour cardstock and its great to use for male cards.  Reminds me I have a male card to make for my husband as its his birthday on the 3rd October.

If you’re wondering what the colour of the ink is it’s from the new In Color range called Primrose Petals, beautiful pink I think, do you.  I also used the roller from the current Holiday Catalogue after making my Bloom with a post it note.  You can find the roller called “Timber” on page 33, #129717 for $10.95 plus postage.
