Tickets of Thanks

I’d mentioned in a previous post that I was attending the Stampin’ Up! regional event in Dallas on Saturday.  As usual, Stampin’ Up!  put on a great event!  There were great demonstrations, tips, and stamping.  And of course there was swapping!  Here is one set of  swaps I made for the day.  I made 28 of them, and I’ll be happy to not use my paper piercer again for a while.  🙂

A Feminine Thank You

I absolutely love the Tea for Two Suite in the Spring catalog.  It is so feminine and Spring-y.  There are lots of fun elements too — flower trim, lace doilies, pearls, etc…  And I adore the colors!  So I decided to play with this suite yesterday on a gloomy, gray day.

Feminine Thanks

A Row of Butterflies — FabFri09

It’s time for another Fab Friday challenge after having been on a short break for the Christmas holiday.  Mindy has a great sketch challenge for this week.

I immediately thought of snowflakes when I saw this sketch, but my heart wanted to do something more Spring-y.  Maybe it’s because of all of the cold and gray weather we’ve been having lately, and I’m looking forward to Spring already.

A Row of Butterflies

Here’s another card with some fun new products from the Sping catalog.  I used the new Bitty Butterfly punch, which layers perfectly with the Elegant Butterfly punch in the annual catalog.  And I also used some of the new Delicate Details Lace Tape, which comes in two designs and has a self-adhesive backing, so it’s easy to attach to your projects.

Here’s a closer look at the tape and butterflies:

Oh, Hello! Spring Catalog — Sneak Peek

I received my pre-order for the new Spring catalog last week and I have been good about not playing with it, until now.  I made myself promise that I wouldn’t get into it until I finished my Christmas crafting, because I knew that once I went down the Spring road it would be hard to come back to Christmas.  I’m close, but not quite done with my Christmas stamping, but I just couldn’t resist today — I felt like I needed a little treat.  Oh, discipline is so NOT fun!  🙂

I wanted to play along with the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches, and I thought this new stamp set, called Oh, Hello would be perfect (plus, I just really wanted to play with it).  There are also a couple of other sneak peeks with this card — some new oval framelits dies, some new dsp called Tea for Two, and another set of new framelits which has some cute banner shapes.  So save your Christmas money — the new Spring catalog goes live on January 3.

Enjoy your Sunday!  Thanks for stopping by!
