March Craft Day

Thank You to everyone who came to our March Craft Day. I thought it was a lot of fun. I look forward to this day each month. Hope you do, too. :-)
Here are a few samples I had of cards we made:

As a gift from me, everyone who came could take a Decor Element flower home with them. (And a tile if they wanted one:) Hope to see all of you back for craft day next month and hope those of you who couldn't make it will make it next time :-) Happy Stampin'!

Choo Choo

Here's a simple card I made using a new stamp set and Stampin' wheel that will be coming out in the mini catalog next week. I do enough little kid projects and cards that I thought I needed this set, as I have nothing like it :-) Have a Wonderful Weekend! I'll see some of you at our craft day on Saturday!

Another Petal Pizzazz :)

One last version of the Petal Pizzazz card. I used Spinkles in the background with Versamark and I tried a new color combo--Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango, and Apricot Appeal with Black and White. Have a Great Day!

Petal Pizzazz

I saw a similar card to this one in the April issue of Stampin' Success by Stephanie David and just had to case it. So here is my version of the card. A little more simple than hers, but my supplies are more limited. Of course, Mother's Day is in the near future (hint, hint to my kids and hubby :>) Have a Happy Stampin' Day!

A Little Carried Away

Does your work space (play space :) ever look like this? Too many projects out, old and new, too many ideas going on at once. I was having so much fun with all my new stuff I got for my birthday that I got a little carried away. I'm going to get this mess organized, then I'll have some space to finish some of these projects. I'll post some of them when I complete them. :-)

Wild About You

Sticking with the same color scheme, here is the next scrapbook page. I used the Wild About You stamp set. The designer paper and ribbon I used are from the Sale-a-bration promotion(you can get these for free, check out the Sale-a-bration promotion!). I used a challenge sketch for the layout. The Late Nite Stampers group is an awesome group to be a part of to get great ideas. There are so many wonderfully creative people. If you would like to join this group, here is the link:

Fifth Avenue Floral

I love the new Fifth Avenue Floral set. It may be hard to see these gorgeous flowers on this page. I tried them out this week and turned it into a scrapbook page. I'll see what else I can come up with using this set. Happy Stampin'!
