A Beautiful Day

here in WA state.  Actually the last few days have been really nice.  Even put the top down on my miata and took a spin - love the wind in what little hair I've got-lol!

My craft room is finally cleaned up - now I just have to do some major organizing.  Look what I found when I was picking up!

This is one of my favorite cards.  I used barely banana card stock and dsp strip, oval scallop punch, handsome hunter, tango tangerine and yoyo yellow classic ink.  The stamp set is Inspired By Nature (one of my favorites).  It is a three-fold card with a band that fits around where the two sections meet.

One of my hostesses wanted to use the sock monkey on a card.  As much as I like the sock monkey, it's hard to come up with unique ideas.  I used chocolate chip, riding hood red, whisper white and barely banana card stock; basic black classic ink and various markers.  The cupcake and pennant are popped up with stamping dimensionals and corners are rounded with our corner punch.  The buttons are from our latte collection with gold cord and attached with glue dots.  She was very happy with it.

This was cased from one of SCS's galleries.  The only thing I changed were the colors.  The card stock is tangerine tango, kiwi kiss and barely banana.  I stamped with classic basic black, used various markers, scallop punch, crimper and flower assortment designer brads.  Thank you to the original designer.  It's was perfect the way it was so I didn't change it.

Type at you later.

Happy Belated Mom's Day

Hope everyone had a great mom's day. Got calls from my kids who live out of state, a really cute card from the son who is living at home and we all went out to dinner. Best of all was the quality time spent with my family.

Below are the explosion boxes, inside and out, I demoed at my May club. Definitely got some ooos and ahs from them. Both patterns were found on the SCS. I used just some simply scrapping kits for my embellishments.

This is the first explosion box that was demoed. I liked that it had a lot of room for pictures. I used certain celery and blue bliss cardstock with a simply scrappin kit.

This is the second box I demoed. It is a little smaller and only one layer with the corners cut out. I would use this as a card, maybe with a small gift inside. I used so saffron and blue bliss cardstock with a simply scrappin kit.

Great Saturday!

I had a start on cleaning my craft room but had my stamping club Saturday. So, I'll start all over again next weekend-lol! The club went great - we did the projects below and I demonstrated two different types of explosion boxes made from simply scrapping kits. They all took advantage of Stampin Up's May paper special - purchase 3 - get one free. We had a great time!!

Take care.
