With Gratitude

It may be almost 100 degrees in sunny North Carolina but supposedly fall is just around the corner... so I'm trying to get into the spirit by demonstrating this fabulous new fall set-- With Gratitude. It's very reminiscent of Autumn Leaves but I love the font of the wording in this set... can be somewhat formal... but doesn't have to be. Another one of the reasons why I bought it is so I can use it for masculine cards. This is just an all around lovely set. Hope you enjoy the samples...

Love these 3x3's

Use to be that every card was 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 but not anymore... now we have all of these fun new sizes. I especially like these little 3x3's-- they are perfect for gift tags or just little thank you notes. They don't take much time or much stamping. Even people who proclaim themselves "not creative" can do these cards. And, they are so small and cute. Take a look at this set of cards. The first four use the Garden Whimsy set and the last one uses the Pick a Petal set....

I loooove Halloween and was so thrilled to see this cute Halloween set in the new catalog. I loved Booglie Eyes, but just about used that set to death last year.

Just Like You

I have to say this is by far the cutest Ronald McDonald House set we've ever had. Just Like You can be found on page 105 of the new Catalog. The Flowers for You designer paper was made to coordinate perfectly with this set. This set is $25.95 and for every set that is sold, two dollars is donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

I am the new Lead Volunteer for the Chapel Hill Ronald McDonald House and we will be restart our activities at the end of this month. We will be going to the house once a month to do stamping activities with the guests. They've also asked us to donate stamped notepads to have in each guests room. If you are a Demonstrator in the Chapel Hill Durham, NC area and would like to help us out, please e-mail me at If not, I would encourage you to sign up in your own area. It is such a rewarding experience and takes a very little amount of time.... just an hour a month.

This is a sample of what I did with my clubs last month-- it's a 4.25 x 4.25 size--

Sets: Just Like You
Ink: Versamark, Basic Black, Regal Rose
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Ice Circle Brad, White Taffeta Ribbon, Flowers for You Designer Paper, Scallop &
1 3/8 inch Circle Punches, Dimmensionals, Dazzling Diamonds, packing tape

Technique: Punch largest circle punch out of tempting turquoise, then punch scallop border around circle. Mount turquoise scallop border on piece of celery and punch circle out of celery. Put piece of packing tape with sticky side up on back of celery over open circle. Then sprinkle dazzling diamonds over top of tape. Glitter will stick to tape and make a window.
