Friends: Lost and Found

Just one layout to share today. As I mentioned previously, I've been coordinating my high school reunion for the past couple of months. When I started this, I was recently reunited with one of my friends who moved away a couple of years before we graduated. She flew in for one of our planning meetings and we got to spend some time together. I used Dream Street Paper's "Fresh" collection as well as lots of vintage trims and buttons on this page as well as some Melissa Frances stickers.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Cards with stamping

Today I have more cards with stamping.

I needed some cards to send to some high school reunion friends (yeah, I still have that project going on), and I wanted something quick and easy, yet cute. I had to be able to duplicate them easily. I used Cornish Heritage Farms stamp set "Cute Curls" designed my Kim Hughes. I just love the little lady bug. I used my Stampin' Up marker to color the bug red.

This one uses Stampin' Up! Papers (Bella Rose and Bashful Blue Designer Series). The stamps are Stampin' Up!'s "Dreams Du Jour"; ribbon is Stampin' Up!'s Pink Pirouette (you won't believe how much you get on a roll!) The flower is from Prima.

This card uses papers from Making Memories (Noteworthy and Flower Patch) and Stampin' Up's "Best Yet" stamp set.

Last one - mostly cardstock and a strip of My Mind's Eye paper. I used the "Best Yet" stamp set again on this one. Lots of ribbon, trim and texture. Cardstock is Stampin' Up's Kraft and So Saffron. Ink is SU's Chocolate Chip. It's so dark and "chocolatey". :)

In case you didn't know, I've been a Stampin' Up Rep for 6 months now. If you like SU! products, you can order directly from my My Demonstrator Site.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a wonderful weekend!

Some Stamped Cards

Enjoying the month of June, here! We had a nice shower last night, and tomorrow I'm picking blueberries. They will probably be nice and plump and juicy. I can't wait to make a fresh blueberry pie.

Here are a few cards I made using some of Hampton Art's new stamps.

I used Hampton Arts' printed cards and envelopes, along with their Kelly Panacci line of Friends and Artsy Edges stamps.

This one uses Hampton Art's You and Me clear stamps, and their Kelly Panacci line of Artsy Edges and Frieds stamp sets (both are clear also).

This fall card uses some wood mount stamps. I colored the images with Stampin Up! markers.

Thanks for stopping by!

June Cards!

The first of June brings new cards made with the CupCardsToGo Card kit. This month the kit is called "Debonair" and is full of masculine things. Well, I didn't get very masculine with it - but I guess that shows it's versatility. Be sure to check out the gallery at the CupCardsToGo website!

Here are a few of the cards I made with the June kit:

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
