A Few Simple Cards for August

I had some cards to send so I got to pull out some of my favorite stamps a few weeks ago!
This set from Lawn Fawn is perfect -- there are other sentiments and images, but simple and to the point was perfect for my brother's (LATE) birthday card.

I love when I get to pull out things I haven't used in awhile -- like my poor neglected scallop die, which added just the right "something special" with dots on mermaid to match the mermaid card base (and mermaid stamped zinnias)!

I wanted simple -- but the Glossy Accents flower centers added just enough "bling" for a customer thank you!

I think I'll get to stamp a bit this weekend -- and possibly with some friends! I'll share my creations next week. I also have some pages to share of our late July trip around North Texas -- as soon as I get my Cricut back to finish the titles. It's nice to have a machine that could be useful at work -- except when you need it at home at the same time! I let the Marketing Committee borrow it to create titles and images for the Library's bulletin board on campus -- I can't wait to see what they've come up with (but I hope they finish soon, I have pages to title!!) I was able to get quite a few pages assembled during a one-day retreat in Austin last month with the Heart of Texas Scrapbook (HOTS) Club. I met some lovely scrapbookers and with Austin only an hour away I think I'll join them more regularly.

I hope you are having a fabulous week.

Happy Stamping,

Holiday Catalog By the Numbers

I hadn't sat down to count things up, but these are some pretty impressive numbers -- even more so if you add the digital files (there are 19 of those!) If you hadn't had a chance yet, be sure to take a peek at the holiday catalog!

Happy Stamping!

But, one of the things I am most excited about is the digital cut files for the holiday catalog sets! I love dies, of course, but if I have a lot of something to cut for a project I'd much rather let my machine do it for me!

Holiday Hoopla ends October 31st. Start planning your cards and projects now because the holidays really ARE just around the corner!

I'll be back to post some cards I made -- but I couldn't wait to share all of this with you!

Happy Stamping!
