The pencil bundles are for my son's Kinder- garten class- mates. He's thrilled every time he gets a new pencil, so I'm sure the others will like these. I put Dazzling Diamonds glitter onto of the eggs to add a little sparkle. I was glad I got to use more designer paper scraps for this project. This was made with the NEW stamp set, An Egg-cellent Easter, from the Occasions catalog...too cute!
My kids' grandmas are getting these See's Candy Boxes for Easter...I'm jealous! haha I used my NEW An Egg-cellent Easter stamp set, from the Occasions Mini Catalog for this, along with the new Scallop Oval Punch. I put some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter onto the eggs for a little shimmer, and a rhinestone brad is attached to the ribbon and tag.
These are baskets for my nieces and nephews. I used what I had left of retired Designer Paper Packs that I earned as part of my Hostess Benefits. They are already 6"x6" so I didn't have to cut any paper. I used ribbon instead of paper, since 6" would have been too short of a handle. The ribbon has remained standing, so it was a success! I filled them with candy, except for the babies...you can see one got a shirt and the other is getting size 2 flip flops.

Here's another card, using the NEW Oval All stamp set and coordinating Scallop Oval Punch. I also used the "A Perfect Day" Rub-ons and Die Cut Blooms. It may be hard to see, (unless you click on photo to enlarge) but the Bashful Blue cardstock was embossed with the Big Shot and Texturz plates...love those...too darn easy and cute!

I'm trying to come up with SIMPLE and QUICK cards for a Stamp-A-Stack, so this really couldn't get any more simple! :) I used the new set, Oval All, along with the coordinating Scallop Oval Punch...both are available to customers in April. The flowers along the Kiwi Kiss cardstock are from the set Simply Said, which remains one of my favorite sets. The other cardstock colors are Pacific Point and Baja Breeze and Whisper White.

My family is still growing, so my mom asked me to update her frame with the newest baby. So, I added Baby Violet on...I had left extra space knowing there would surely be more grandkids...I only have room for one more now! I know that I won't be adding any more grandchildren to the family myself! :) I also changed out the background paper, since I had plain cardstock on the previous frame. I like this Designer Paper instead. The heart is from the Simply Said set, and the "Wonderful" is from the Wonderful Favorites set, and I used the Big Deal set to spell out Granny. I crack up that my Gaby is the only one colored brown...she's the darkest and people always comment on that! This is such a fun Mother's Day gift for grandmas. It's also a cute idea for teachers...put the teacher in the center and stamp a bunch of kiddos! Click on photo to see it larger.

I love making tags...someday I'll have a TAG class. :)
I seldom use my Tangerine Tango...so I pulled it out for a bright birthday tag. I also used Riding Hood Red and Bashful Blue. The tag is 3"x3.5". I still love my Party Hearty set. I used the Color Spritzer Tool and Bashful Blue marker to add a bit of color onto the Whisper White cardstock, but that's hard to see in the photo. This is the last project that my Technique Club will make this weekend...I can't wait for my goodies that I preordered from the NEW Occasions Mini Catalog...just in time for my customer workshop next Friday! Have a great weekend. Tomorrow's my hubby's b-day (and my 3 yr. anniversary as a SU! demonstrator!) so we're going to The Melting Pot for dinner...it's a fondue restaurant...yummy!

I demonstrated this bag this weekend at a workshop. It's very similar to the bag in the Sale-A-Bration brochure. I love the ribbon...it's out of the SAB brochure as well. The Yummy stamp set seems to be one of the favorites from the SAB brochure.
