Celebrate the New Year!

My friend Carol from FL taught me to make this sweet FABRIC FLOWER! I paired Calypso Coral with Black for a big pop! The fabric is the Designer Collection called "Timeless Portrait." The musical background is the standard wheel "Music Notes," cut and layered with the NEW "Labels Collection" Framelit Dies coming Jan. 4th in the Occasions Mini Catalog.

How to mail this?? Look carefully and you will see Stampin' Up!'s Padded Envelope. They are a "MUST" for your treasured artwork! I use a lot of them!!

The sweet narrow Coral ribbon is in a "free bundle" coming during Sale-A-Bration!! I have LOTS of new items from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog so stop in frequently!! Happy New Year!! Celebrate!

Many Occasions

This creation works for so many needs. I stamped a sympathy message inside, but birthday, anniversary work, too. The flower image is from Love & Sympathy stamp set of three.

I used the NEW Labels Framelit Die coming Jan. 4th for the center layer. The lovely Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper is the perfect background. I scrunched the seam binding ribbon and attached it with glue dots.

Don't forget to register for the Jan. 14th VALENTINE CLASS by Jan. 4th!

Jungle Cruise

We all headed out for a "Jungle Cruise" in our backyard - our 2 daughters, son-in-law, hubby and me. We saw an otter, black vultures, two young racoons, oprey, and a great blue heron. No alligators this trip, but this is Alligator Creek. We have sure enjoyed our kids' visit!! 
There is nothing better than "TOGETHER!"

Matchbox Bigz XL Die

I needed a unique way to give birthday money to our new son-in-law. The Matchbox Die is PERFECT!! I stamped the palm tree from Plant Hope because it's soo Florida.

Just pull the ribbon tab and the box easily slides out of the sleeve. The Die includes three labels. I put one in the bottom of the box with a birthday message.

I love this versatile little box!! You will, too!

Romantic peek...

A Sneek Peek at "Bordering on Romance" stamp set coming on Jan. 4th! This set has coordinating embossing folders and dies! Here I used the new Edgelits Die to cut around the row of flowers! EASY!

Gorgeous new Designer Series Paper called "Twitterpatted" - love it!! Get ready for the AMAZING Occasions Mini Catalog beginning Jan. 4th!

Coming soon...

Rue Des Fleurs stamp set of eight is available Jan. 4, 2012 in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I love the "supporting" words in this set!! The Designer Series Paper is called "Attic Boutique," so lovely!

I dotted the flowers with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. Then I took a short piece of Crumb Cake Seam Binding and wadded it up in my palms. I held it scrunched up for a moment and it holds the "wrinkles." That was my embellishments with a small flower and pearl! So easy and vintage.
