Vintage Vogue for Fabulous Friday

Hey it's Friday!! This month has been just clicking along and so busy on top of's my week over at Sisters in Stamping blog and I picked Retiring SU! stamp sets. Here is my card for this week--

I used one of my all time favs, Vintage Vogue (boo hoo). We made this card at the Mother Daughter Class a couple of weeks ago. Here is a picture of the book mark--

I used Elegant Eggplant and Certainly Celery combo (again!! I know but they just go so nice together).

Still reeling from the retired list. e-mail me if you are placing an order and I'll update you on the availability of the Accessory list.

Thank-you for coming by today, see you next week!

Happy Stamping, Karla c(:

Fabulous Scrapbooking Pages

Hello! Today on the Sisters in Stamping blog we are focusing on scrapbook pages. Here is my 6x6 page for this week--

I used one of the sets (that I love dearly-boo hoo) that will be retiring the end of May called Inspired by Nature. I used Always Artichoke, More Mustard and Chocolate Chip Markers to color the flowers. 
I recently started teaching a Mother Daughter Class. Last month when we made a scrapbook page one of the 8 year olds asked, "what am I gonna do with this?" Legitimate question I thought, and I said something like, "you could put magnets on the back of it and hang it on the refrigerator."

Later I had a AH HA design moment, what if at the next class I had them put magnets on the back of a page protector and they put their monthly 6x6 scrapbook page on the frig in it? So there you have it-- every month they come to the class they have a new page for the frig, and the beginning of a Album of their own. Here is the back of the page protector, we trimmed the binder side off and placed sticky magnets on each corner.

Thank-you for stopping by today. Hopefully you'll be able to come by next Friday, it's my week and I've picked retiring stamp sets as the theme.

Happy Stamping!

Fabulous Mother's Day

   Our focus this week at the Sisters in Stamping blog was Mother's Day cards. Here is my card for this week--

Used a stamp set called Packed for Mom (pg.39, Occasions Mini Catalog). I ruffled some vanilla seam tape along the bottom of the Concord Crush piece and added the punched flowers with the pearls to make it a little feminine. Although I used white embossing powder on the image, it looked like Very Vanilla which ended up being nice because I think it softened the card measurably.
Thank-you for stopping by this week! Make sure you come back next week the Sisters are doing some scrapbooking...

Happy Stamping! Karla c(:

PS. Just a reminder, the Occasions Mini Catalog expires on April 30, only a couple more weeks to make a purchase.

Late Fabulous Friday?!

Considering I completely forgot that yesterday was Friday, so my post is a day late this week! I think it's the Easter break that has my brain in a tizzy--well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!! Here is my card for this week--

I took some inspiration from fellow stamper Pam Clyde. I used sponge daubers to make my pretty polka dot back ground and then a aqua painter and the same colors to color in the cute little chick. It is so happy and colorful in real life!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you check out the Sisters in Stamping blog for more cute Springtime projects!

Happy Stamping, Karla c(:
