I had an opportunity to do some scrappin' this weekend and here is what I got done. These top three layouts are SUO (Stampin' Up! Only) products, although much of it is retired. The last layout is not. These are various layouts from 2003 (yes I'm behind and yes, I'm OK with that). I'll be brief and just list the supplies used on each one. Oops, just noticed the title on this one is done with stickers that are ancient and not SU.
Stamps: By Land
Colors: (left to right) Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: I used circle punches for the tires and the stop light and my paper snips to cut out the vehicles
LOVE that flocked paper! Too bad I'll have a page protector over it!
Stamps: Whimsical Alphbet
Stamps: Whimsical Alphbet
Paper: Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Christmas Cocoa DSP
Accessories: Epoxy Brads in Pink
Stamps: Doodle Alphbet
Stamps: Doodle Alphbet
Paper: Crumb Cake, Dashing DSP, Real Red
Accessories: Top Note die for the Big Shot, variety of SU buttons, Photo Corner punch
Besides the black pages and the gray mats for the pictures, nothing on this is SU except the title which was made with the Billboard Sizzlit die and the Big Shot. I've got more journaling to do on this one... not planning to leave that whole bottom right corner plain like that.
Thanks for looking! I hope to get much more done this weekend to share!

I won't mention any names, but recently someone told me she didn't really think Thank You notes were necessary for gifts and she certainly didn't expect to receive them. Well, first of all, when I was growing up and thank you notes were mandatory and I still do my best to write them and make my kids write them. Second of all, I'm a card maker. SO, needless to say that certain someone is getting the most THANKFUL thank you note I could come up with. LOL! Don't worry, she'll see the humor and will also know she is appreciated.
My large Thank You stamp that I repeated on the background is a very old retired set called Word on Word. I always liked this set because the way the rubber on the stamp is designed it makes the shading on the bigger letters so the smaller ones on top can be easily read, plus it only needs to be inked in one color!
Anyway, the yellow circle was initially going to be on the inside but changed my mind. The sentiment is from the stamp set Full of Life. Added some ric rac ribbon and a glimmer brad to finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by today! And be sure to stop by my new facebook page if you'd like!

I know it's a bit early for spring thinking, but I can't help myself. I can't just make wintery cards all winter! I made this one a few weeks back actually, I think for a MOJO challenge or something like that, but never had the time or capability to upload it.
I've always liked this stamp set but don't use it as often as I should. It is A Flower for all Seasons.
Thanks for stopping by! Stop back again tomorrow for a Diva challenge.

Good morning! I promised a few Christmas thank you note ideas and here they are. I used the Black Magic technique I learned from Splitcoast Stampers. Even though it is some work, it does turn out quite pretty.
For this technique you stamp an image with white craft ink then let it dry (or dry it with a heat tool). Then you color over the various areas with colored pencils and in my case I also used the old Metallic Pencils from SU- they have an amazing shine. Finally, top it off with white gel pen details.
So will you try it? Here's a link to the tutorial for a few more specific details. Thanks for stopping by!
Stamps: Serene Snowflakes, Short & Sweet
Accessories: Modern Label punch, white gel pen, Metallic pencils, colored pencils, Scalloped Trim border punch, Big Shot

Hello and welcome back to my humble stamping blog. I'm happily adjusting to my new laptop (that arrived just yesterday) and anxiously awaiting fun filled posts in this new year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and enjoyed your New Year's Eve. I bet many of you are ready to get back into your regular routine by now. Without further rambling I'm going to post several of the last Christmas cards I whipped out just in time, which I was unable to share with you before.
Thanks for stopping by,
