Just Believe Make & Take

We made this card at Convention this year. I think this is going to be one of my favorite stamp sets! We used a circle template made with the Big Shot and Circle's #2 die and sponged color into the circle, then stamped the image and greeting.

Altered Notebooks

One of the traditions of Convention is making gifts for those who attend Convention with you (especially your downline). This year, two of my fabulous Sparklers - Gloria and Nancy - attended with me.

Susan, Gloria and Nancy

Along with the Bag Tag and posted several days ago, I made these altered note books for them. I used Pear Pizazz card stock and In Color Prints DSP on Gloria's and Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Sunny Garden DSP on Nancy's. I die cut their initials with the Serif Essentials alphabet and the Big Shot.

Make & Takes

I'm sitting in the hospital surgery waiting room with my dad. We've spoken with the physicians who operated on my mom and she has been taken to recovery. We are all breathing a huge sigh of relief - the surgery went well and no further treatment is expected! So thank you for all of your prayers and good wishes!

While we have been waiting, I was scrolling through my hundreds of photos from Convention and came across the photos of the projects we made so thought I would take the opportunity to post.

Supplies used: Not Quite Navy and Bashful Blue card stock; watercolor paper; Old Olive, Pear Pizazz, Not Quite Navy and Bashful Blue markers; Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Button.

Color the stamp with markers and lightly spritz with water. Stamp onto watercolor paper. Allow to dry. Stamp greeting, tear watercolor paper and Bashful Blue card stock as shown. Adhere ribbon and button to bottom and then adhere this piece to Not Quite Navy card. Stamp envelope.

The Story

This quick and easy scrap book page was made with the Newsprint DSP. I used the "The Story" sheet and trimmed it down a bit and mounted it on a sheet of 12" x 12" Basic Black card stock and mounted the photos on Basic Black card stock as well. The Hydrangea is from the Level 1 Hostess set Because I Care.

Owl Punch

One of the new punches in the Idea Book and Catalog is this Owl Punch. Isn't he cute? Angie made this owl card for our Open House Display board. I liked him so much I CASE'd him for our Convention bag tags.
Supplies: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla card stock; 2 Step Owl Punch, 2 Step Bird Punch, Ribbon Border punch; Chocolate Chip Classic Ink and Elegant Soiree DSP.

Speaking of Convention, this is the last day. It's hard to believe! It always goes by so fast! I'll post the make and takes during the next week.

Hostess Club Project

One of our projects this month was making a note card set. The first photo is the note card holder using Pear Pizazz card stock and ribbon and Greenhouse Gala DSP. We colored the images of the stamps with markers.

We filled the note card holder with four stamped noted cards and envelopes (sold in a set of 20 for $5.95). We trimmed 1/4" off of the front of the card and adhered a strip of the DSP to the inside so it peeks out.
