Now I'm heading over to post on SCS, and then, out to enjoy this beautiful spring day! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Sweet Always Birthday

One of my customers fell in love with the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set and wanted to use it in planning her daughter's 13th birthday party. She made her invitations using the set paired with the Sweet Always paper. Today Katie and her friends headed to Great Wolf Lodge for an overnight stay. What a great way to celebrate a birthday!

As a party favor, I planned a mini scrap book project using coasters. They will take pictures while they are there, print them, and go home with a finished album to help them remember the day! As a matter of fact, they should be working on them right about now! Here are some photos of the booklet. I hope you like it! I was very pleased with the result.

Sweet Always Summer

I think Soft Summer is one of the prettiest sets in the occasions mini catalog, don't you? And I love it combined with the Sweet Always paper! I'm really going to miss that when it retires in July! I love the dots, and the color combination is one of my favorites. Maybe SU! will update it by making it browns and blues. What do you think?

Here is the recipe for the card.
Stamps: Sweet Summer
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red
Papers: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Sweet Always DSP
Accessories: Vintage Brads, 1 3/4" circle punch, scallop from Stampin' Up! pennant die

Color Inspiration... in reverse!

I was recently in a card swap to showcase the new stamps from the Occasions mini catalog. I chose to do Scene in a Garden, and here is my card.

Here is the recipe:
Stamps: Scene in a Garden, Fundamental Phrases
Ink: Basic Gray, Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Always Artichoke, black Staz-On
Paper: Whisper White, Going Gray Baja Breeze Walk in the Park DSP
Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, scallop oval punch, oval punch, blender pen, aqua painter painter, pop-up glue dots

Imagine my surprise when several weeks later I spotted this display in Target! When I was making the card, I wondered where I might find boots in Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze. Now I know, and yes, I bought a pair!
