Baby Booming

I went to another friend's baby shower yesterday. The card I made was a onesie that was inspired by Lauren Meader. My friend is having a baby girl, so I chose to do the cuffs in a hot pink with a light black accent in the center.

Oranges, Limes, and Lemons

This is my first attempt at participating in a blogger's challenge, so forgive me if I don't do this post "correctly." :) I've seen this challenge on several blogs, so I finally decided to give it a try. Can you tell that I'm really ready for summer? My last few posts have been very bright and "summery." Is that a word? It is in my vocabulary. Enjoy!

Yikes stripes, fruit striped gum!

Things have been a little wacko-busy for us this weekend. We are in the process of getting a few things in order for our move next month, so I apologize for the lack of posts lately. I promise to be back in the swing of things tomorrow. Thanks for hanging in there with me. :)

Checkbook Covers

I held a workshop last night for a woman who had been involved in SU about 10 years ago. Back in the day, SU sold checkbook covers and that was the project she had made at a workshop. So when she was reintroduced to SU at a workshop I held, she immediately wanted to hold a workshop, but really wanted the project to be another checkbook cover. Since SU doesn't sell the covers anymore, I did some research and found some online for a decent price. So last night we made checkbook covers and the ladies LOVED them. They were such a hit, and most of them were surprised you could do things, such as the checkbook covers, other than cards with the SU product. It went over so well I think I will offer that option when I do workshops in the future. Everyone can use a good checkbook cover now and then! :)

I pre-cut different options of the Parsian Breeze Specialty DSP for them to choose from so they could customize the cover to fit their own taste. I used my personal favorite stamp set "Heartfelt Thanks" for the covers. Here is the sample I made:

Good Morning Sunshine

This paper makes me so excited for summer! I can't wait until it's sunny and warm everyday. Time to dig out the flip flops, the capris, and tank tops. Woo hoo!!

Bella Rose

I love the Bella Rose DSP! It's so pretty and this stamp set coordinates with it perfectly! I borrowed the set from one of my club members and tried out-I absolutely love it and plan to buy it soon. Not sure if you can tell, but I added Stickles to the roses and leaves to make them sparkle a little bit.

Another milk carton gift

I wrapped up another month for my club, and made another Milk Carton set for this month's hostess. The stamp set I used for this one is from a catalog a long time ago and I actually bought the set on eBay many years ago. I was happy to have something girly to use for her box set. I put some goodies inside each box.

DSP Galore!

In honor of National Scrapbooking Month, SU has a promotion going on for the month of May: for every 3 pack of Designer Series Paper you buy, you get one pack FREE. I love FREE stuff, especially paper, so I definitely took advantage of this deal. The order arrived yesterday, so I challenged myself to make one card from every pack of DSP I got before I could go to bed. Most are CAS (clean and simple), as it was getting late already when I started this project. These are the cards I made and their coordinating DSP.

Good Morning Sunshine DSP (sorry for the yellow tint from the lighting):

Bella Rose DSP:

Parisian Breeze Specialty DSP:

Thank you

Here's a quick thank you card I threw together with some scraps I had leftover. I absolutely love this color scheme and have been wanting to try it out since I first got my catalog. Not sure why I waited until now.

April Showers Bring May Flowers

It's been raining like crazy here in Oklahoma the past two weeks and yesterday the sun decided to finally show its face. For that I am so grateful! It motivated me to make a card with flowers. This is a result of sitting in meetings for three weeks straight--my mind did a lot of thinking about card ideas. :)

Purses for mom

I hosted a card day this morning with some of my club gals and this is one of the cards we made. I thought since it's Mother's Day month, I wanted us to do something girly to celebrate. I've seen these little purses all over the place, so I wanted to try them for myself--super easy!!

And I want to wish everyone a Happy National Scrapbooking Day!! Go celebrate and buy yourself some scrappin' stuff! :)
