Happy 40 & some MOJO

Today is my hubby's 40th birthday!  This is the card I made for him.  I used the Gorgeous Grunge 2 130514 Stamp Set.  We received this set at convention and I LOVE it.  It adds a lot of fun texture to your project.  I also used the Yippee-Skippee w131341 Stamp Set (another get set from convention) and the Remembering Your Birthday w 131347 c 131350.  Oh and I also got to play with some Witches' Brew Designer Washi Tape 132156 and Epic Day This and That Designer Washi Tape 131269.  

I LOVE you Adam, Happy Birthday!   

Here is this week's Mojo Monday sketch.
And my take on it.  I just had to use the little bike that came in this month's My Paper Pumpkin.  If you have not already signed up for My Paper Pumpkin do so before the end of the month and use the code PUMPKINDEAL to receive your first two months for 1/2 price.  That is only $10 a month.  Such a great deal.
I also used the Really Good Greetings Stamp set w 130330 and the I am Me DSP 130138.

If you would like to be a part of the Hostess Group.  Let me know.  It will be starting in September.

Paper Pumpkin Starter Kit

My friend Jaeme got her Paper Pumpkin Starter Kit today.  Check out the adorable card she made.
These kits are so fun.  You can follow the instructions given or create your own by adding a few of your own embellishments or stamps like Jaeme did here.  

Thanks for sharing Jaeme.

Happy Stampin'!


Here are a couple of the pages that I made using the Birthday Basic DSP 130145.  I cased them from All I Create.  I don't have the adorable Cycle Celebration 130270 stamp set yet but it is on my list and coordinated with these pages well.  

Also look what came in my mailbox today!  So excited!  I look forward to this time of the month.   
My Paper Pumpkin arrived and I LOVE the little bike that came in it.  SO cute!  So far I have only made the one card, but am going to step the next ones up.  

 Do you have your Christmas cards ready yet?  I am planning this super fun class coming up this next month.  So quick and easy.  I whipped up these cards in less than an hour.  I used the Season of Style Designer Journaling Tags 132808 from the holiday catalog.  I add some cardstock, ribbon, bakers twine, a couple of sheets for DSP from the Season of Style Stack 132181, some Rhinestones and a doily to make the perfect quick card class.  I made 8 cards here but there are plenty of little pieces left of make some scrapbook page embellishments or maybe even some more cards.  Come to this class and you will also have access to my stamp sets (3 sets where used here) and my embossing folders (I used 2 different ones but have many more you can use).  The cost for the class is only $12.00.  If you would like to purchase more cardstock to make more cards I will have that available.
(some of the above cards were CASEd from Sandra Low)

Have a wonderful weekend and happy stampin'!

We have been running a little behind on thank you's.  My son Joshua turned 7 a couple of weeks ago and we really needed to get them written.  So I decided this week I would see what projects I could make using the Birthday Basics DSP 130145.  I LOVE the colors in this paper.  They are so fun.
The colors listed on the website are incorrect right now.  The coordinating colors are basic gray, bermuda bay, crisp cantaloupe, gumball green, raspberry ripple, summer starfruit, very vanilla.  

Here is the cute little Thank you notes that I helped Joshua make.  

I also made up a few cards that I CASEd.  The top two I found on Becky Robert's blog and the bottom one is my version of a card I found on "all I create".  

Remember if you would like to place an order this month and it is under $150 use hostess code 4BTNMGQR and you will be entered to win the hostess benefits for this month.  I will draw the hostess on Friday August 30th so make sure you get your order in before then to be eligible.

Orchard Harvest Treat

I am trying to use up what is left and my mom found these little treats on split coast yesterday.

I think they turned out pretty cute.
So here is what you do...Mom this is for you.  

You cut a piece of paper to 8 1/2 x 2 3/8.  
Score that at 3 1/2 and 5.  
Punch a 2 3/8 inch scalloped circle from the same color.  
Punch a 1 3/4 circle from a coordinating color.  
Cut your accent DSP to 3 1/4 x 2 1/8 and tape it to one end.  
Punch a 1 1/4 inch circle from the center bottom of the paper.  
Place 10 kisses in a cello bag and staple to the back (the side without DSP) top.  
Fold on score lines.  
Score your larger scallop circle about 1/2 - 3/4 from one side and fold.  
Tape the smaller part to the back and the larger part to the front.  
Tape the smaller circle in the middle of the larger one and embellish as you wish.  :)  

Clear as mud right!

Orchard Harvest

I know this is sad a year after having purchased this Orchard Harvest DSP I am finally getting around to using it all up.  Here are the cards I have been making.  I made 4 of each and found each of them on Pinterest.  LOVE LOVE LOVE the Perfectly Preserved set that goes with it.  I so miss this stamp set.

Here is the scrapbook page that I cased as well last year.  
Have a great day and Happy Stampin'!
