Last Minute 2009-2010 In Color Fun!

I have really enjoyed the In-Colors over the last year! They all work wonderfully together, and fortunately my favorite 3 will be core colors in the new Idea Book & Catalog!

I saw some cards similar to these quite a while back, and decided to put a little bit of a spin on them! They'd be great little note cards for that special teenager in your life!

115314 Pg.155 09‐10 In Color card stock (12" x 12") $ 8.95
115315 Pg.155 09‐10 In Color card stock (8‐1/2" x 11") 25% off $ 5.96

You can go HERE to purchase the assorted 09-10 In Color card stock bundles! The Bermuda Bay individual packages of card stock are sold out or they'd be on the list I just provided.

Many, many fun things are going to be leaving us in just a few days. The last day to order anything on the Last Chance List is June 30.

Happy Stamping!

Oh, the things people come up with!

Good day everyone! It's been a while since I posted anything, life has been kinda crazy lately! 

I was looking through my emails last night and came across something really cool. A lady that belongs to one of the same groups I do came up with a program to try out different color combinations with all of our Stampin' Up! colors! She has been gracious enough to let us 'Grab' her button! So without further ado, here it is!


I hope to have some more goodies for you to look at by the end of the week! Until then, happy stamping!

Stampin' Addicts Blog Hop!


Hi everyone! I am so excited to be part of the Mega Blog Hop! This is my first time participating in a hop and I have had a blast! As you all know, the Last Chance Lists came out last week and we have to say goodbye to several wonderful stamp sets. One of my favorites is one of those sets. I chose Just Jawing!

You may have just come from Carmen's post on the hop where she made some amazing projects with Just Basketball, Just Soccer and Just Baseball. I welcome you now to mine! (If you didn't come from Carmen's post, you can still see every blog that participated. They are all looped in a circle, so if mine is the first one you've seen, go on around until you come back!)

So, let's get started! For this project I got a spiral notebook that looked like the cover was our Crushed Curry color and decided decorate it so it looks young and fun! This is what I came up with:
Papers: Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Razzleberry Lemonade and Whisper White
Inks:  Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry inks and Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Marker
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, Large Heart Punch
Big Shot: Top Note Die

This second project was a lot of fun! I used a pasta sauce jar and turned it into a cute container for just about anything!

Papers: Noveau Chic Designer Series Paper, Real Red cardstock
Inks: Classic Black
Accessories: Black 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Brad

I looked at my previous two projects and noticed that I had not yet used the cherry stamp or the You Rock stamp!  So I used just those two and came up with this:

Paper: Real Red, Whisper White
Inks: Real Red
Accessories: Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Brads

Feel free to make any comments on any of my projects, the feedback is most helpful! Thank you for coming to look at my projects, and now you should go check out 
Barbara's creations that she made with Bloomin' Beautiful!
