Girl Scout cookies in snow

Sorry, it's been days since my last post.  My daughter is in Girl Scouts and it's cookie time!  We spent the last week busy selling cookies at booth sales and filling orders too.  I am the Cookie Manager for the troop, it's  a big job to manage all these cookies, but the end is in site!  Only a few more days of cookie sales and it will all be over till next year.  

What's your favorite cookie?  Mine is Thin Mints.    

I got so busy with all the cookie stuff I totally forgot to make sure I had enough projects scheduled on my blog.  I did so well with the first half of February and my "12 Days of Love" posts (see Feb. 1-12 posts), I wanted to keep the momentum going.  But the month did not end with as many posts as I wanted.



So instead of a project post today, here's a picture of my daughter and her friend braving the snow last Sunday out in the cold.  It looks white behind us, that's the snow!  Signs also make a great shield to keep the snow off you!


The girls have been great!  We ended up with too many cookies and had to add a few booths to our schedule to help sell all those wonderful cookies.  These 2 girls each did 6 booth sales this year!  Some in nice weather, and some like this photo were cold!  But we sold the cookies and they had a great time!  
Have a wonderful day!!

Just Thinking in Primrose Petals

I like the Just Thinking stamp set in the Stampin'Up! Spring mini catalog. You can find this stamp on page 21, and it works great with the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies.  There's tons more great products in the Stampin'Up! Spring mini, check it out  HERE.

Have you tried the Core'dinations Card Stock?  I love using it with the embossing folders! I used the Primrose Petals Core'dinations card stock on these cards.  This sandable card stock is great for an antiqued, distressed look.  It's great for tearing too!
I remember seeing a great idea on someone's blog using one of the embossing folding then cutting it into 3 pieces as the back ground like in these cards.  That's where I got the idea.  But I cannot remember who's blog I saw it on, it was so long ago.  Sorry.

Swallowtail card

I love the Swallowtail stamp!  I made this card for my husbands birthday last month.  I really love using embossing powder and creating a watercolor look with the Aqua Painter. You can find this stamp (page 18) and more great products in the Stampin'Up! Spring mini catalog.
You can make this card at my card class on March 15!  Contact me to attend.  
Plus I am offering a bundle for March.  Pre-order your bundle by March 8, and save $6.  Attend the class March 15 and get more for free too!   Contact me for more information.
I used VersaMark on the Swallowtail stamp, then Early Espresso Embossing Powder, heat set and color using the Aqua Painter and Classic Inks.  


For the inside I stamped the Swallowtail in Tangerine Tango, stamped off first to make it lighter.  I had some left over cards from my Movers and Shapers Curly Label die and Big Shot so I thought it would be fun to put a note in the label on the inside of the card.  I used the Ciao, Baby stamp set (page 16) from the Spring mini and when I ordered $50 in product I got the Petite Curly Label Punch FREE! 

Swallowtail and Word Play (front), Friendly Phrases and Ciao, Baby (inside) stamp sets, Tangerine Tango, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla card stocks, Tangerine Tango, Early Espresso and Daffodil Delight Classic inks, VersaMark, Early Espresso Embossing Powder, Aqua Painter, Big Shot (with retired Movers and Shapers Curly Label die), Petite Curly Label Punch (FREE during SAB)

Stippled Blossoms card

Here's a card I made for my Aunt's birthday.  I had a few nice compliments on it too while it was sitting on my stamp table.  I hope she likes it.  Have a great weekend!



You cannot really see the glitter, I don't think the photos do it justice.  But I put some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter in the middle of the flowers.

Love - Day 12

Day 12 of 12 days of Love... 
Today is the last day of my 12 days of love!  I hope you have all enjoyed the fun and beautiful ideas.  I know I enjoyed sharing them all.  So today I have more than one, I have 3 to share.  
I LOVE the More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper (page 10 of the Stampin'Up! Spring mini catalog).  I was playing around with some letters from my Big Shot die and my daughter came over and arranged them on the card.  I liked it so I made the card around it.  
Real Red, Primrose Petals and Very Vanilla card stock, More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper, Big Shot and Alphabet Typeset Bigz Dies, Fashionable Hearts Embossit, Scallop Border Punch, Dimensionals
Here's a fun and easy card with Pretty Postage, but I could not resist using one of the stamps from the "Best of Love" set.  See more about this great stamp set that brings back some old favorites and new ones HERE, only $14.95! 
Pretty Postage and Best of Love stamp sets, Real Red and Very Vanilla card stock, Real Red Classic ink, Big Shot, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder,Postage Stamp Punch, 1-1/4 " Square Punch, Wide Oval Punch, Small Heart Punch, Dimensionals


I had some extra swaps left from a beautiful card I made a while back, but I needed a different saying on the card fronts.  So I trimmed down the card front and adhered it to a Very Vanilla card, and added the punch along the front where I cut it down.  I thought it turned out nicely.  Hope you enjoy all these fun ideas.

Love - Day 11

Day 11 of 12 days of Love... 
Yes, this is a very big box of Skittles.  It's for Ashley for Valentine's day.  These wraps are easy to make, it's really just a bigger version of the conversation hearts wrap I posted on Day 7.  See them HERE.
I LOVE the More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper (page 10 of the Stampin'Up! Spring mini catalog).  I used one of the sheets with the little hearts, then cut apart one of the big lacy hearts from one of the laser-cut sheet of hearts (you get 2 sheets of hearts in the pack!)
To make the wrap around the box, just measure the boxes 4 sides, make your score marks at those measurements, be sure to add an extra 1/2" to 1" so when you fold it all up, you can glue that short edge.  
Punch your 2 holes at the top, run your ribbon through and push the box of candy down inside (with the ribbon under it).  Tie off the ribbon at the top and now when you pull up on the ribbon the box of candy comes up too.

Love - Day 10

Day 10 of 12 days of Love... 
Yesterday got away from me with my daughter's volleyball and Girl Scout cookie booth sale.  So I didnt get my post scheduled last night.  Sorry this cute card was not posted this morning, but here it is now.  I hope you enjoy!

Mary Brennan made this fun card for our demonstrator swap last month.  I love the big hearts you get in the More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper (page 10 in the Spring Stampin'Up! min catalog). You get 2 laser-cut sheets of hearts, one red, one pink. They are so much fun to use.  The Paper Doilies are also available in the Spring Stampin'Up! mini catalog, page 5. 

Tune in tomorrow for another Love idea during my 12 days of Love.  You'll love all the ideas.  Have a great day!

I really enjoy using the set You Are Loved, it's perfect for this time of year!

Love - Day 7

Day 7 of 12 days of Love... 
Here's a fun craft to decorate those boxes of conversational hearts for Valentine's Day!  
It's easy to wrap the boxes of hearts you hand out, and fun for kids to help.
I used the Hearts a Flutter Bundle to decorate these boxes.  


I know I've said I love the new Hearst a Flutter stamp set and coordinating Framelits, but I have to say it again.  You can do so many fun things with this bundle (page 11 of the Spring Stampin'Up! mini catalog).  And the More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper works great with these too.
Card stock measures 4" x 7"
Score at 2-1/2", 3-1/4", 5-3/4", 6-1/2"
Cut and score card stock.  Use Sticky Strip along edge, then put together. Use 1/4" Circle Punch at the top on both the front and back.  Use ribbon under the box as you put it in, so when you pull up on the ribbon the box comes out.  Decorate the front.

All Stampin'Up! Supplies:  Hearts a Flutter stamps, Pool Party, Primrose Petals and Very Vanilla card stocks, More Amore Specialty DSP, Primrose Petals and Pool Party Classic inks, Big Shot, Hearts a Flutter Framelits, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Core'dinations card stock - Primrose Petals, 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon - Pool Party, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Dimensionals
