Fancy Flower Mother's Day Card

Hello,

I'm so looking forward to today!! I will be at the Thames Centre Community Showcase at the Dorchester Arena. I hope you can join us today so that you can check out what all the business in Dorchester have to offer. There will be product demonstration ( I'm presenting a card on stage at 1pm), food fare, free samples and so much more!! There is something for everyone in the family. The event is from 9 am to 4 pm.

I thought it would be fun to show them a card that you can make for Mother's Day. My inspiration for this card came from the Stampin' Success magazine. Now, I did change mine up.

Fancy Flower Book Mark

Happy Friday!!

I finally got around to making a few of these book marks last night. This book mark came together fairly quickly thanks to my favourite tool the Big Shot Machine. I used the new Fancy Flower die to make them.

My book mark uses the fun Fancy Flower Die along with the Trinket Keys embellishments. Now, I have to let you in on a secret...this is the first time that I used them...and they are so cute!! Remember you only had 1 more day to order product from the Occasions Mini catalogue.

Sew Sweet- Stamping 411 Sketch #200

Hello,

I had a chance last night to play along with this weeks sketch over at Stamping 411. They are celebrating their 200 sketch!! Wow, that is amazing...thanks for the inspiration ladies!!!

As I continue to show you some of my favourite products from the Occasions Mini, I thought it would be fun to use the Sew Suite line. This fun line is every sewers dream!! From buttons, to pom - pom trim, to fabric to stamps, there is something for everyone!!

One of my favourite products is the Designer Series Paper. I love the bright fun patterns in it!

Recipe: Wild Wasbi, Chocolate Chip, and Very Vanilla card stock, Sew Suite stamp set, Basic Rhinestones, Sweet Stitches DSP, Scallop Border Punch, Melon Mambo Pom Pom Trim, Just Believe stamp set, and Black ink.

It's hard to tell from the photo, but I paper pieced the dress. First I stamp the image onto the DSP, and then I cut them out.

So head on over to Stamping 411 and take the challenge today!! Can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Have a great day,

Anne


Nature Walk 3 by 3 Card

Hello,

I have to say that I wish I had bought these products sooner. I'm talking about the beautiful Botanical Gazette line in the Occasions Mini. This fabulous line has the Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper along with the Nature Walk stamp set. I looked at this stamp many times and thought that I really didn't need another nature set. Well, I saw a few samples with it and thought I would give it a try. I'm a glad that I did.I think that you could use this set for any occasion.

I made this fun 3 by 3 card with my friend Heather. I always forget about the collage stamping (using a multiple of images on one project). Oh..check out the new Baker Twine that will be available in the new Summer Mini. Love it!!!
