More Square Cards

Again here are some more cards using up retired pattern paper. I also got the set Four Square when Sale-a-bration was on. I really like the stamps that are in it. When I was cutting the squares I ended up with all the extra polka dot ones. I wasn't sure that it would work with just one pattern but I really am happy with it.

Using up Scraps

I have really been trying to use up as much stuff that I can before I buy any of the new stuff when the new Stampin' Up! catty comes out. I am very pleased how these turned out. It is hard to see in this picture but I did pop the sentiment as well as 3 other squares on each card. It just adds a little something to a very simple idea. Enjoy!!

Thank You Cards

I got this set when Sale-a-bration was one. It is called Very Thankful and I love this particular stamp out of this set. It is really hard to see in the picture but I ran the bottom the the card through the bigshot with a embossing folder. I really like how these turned out. I was thinking that they would be a nice teacher gift.

Rock Star Card

I saw a card like this done but in different colors and really liked it. The colors were a bit girly and since I have 2 boys I decided to change up the colors. I am not really liking the way this card turned out. Something is missing?? I might try again later with different colors.

Easy Birthday Cards

I am so excited about how these cards turned out. I always have so much patterened paper scraps left and am never really sure what to do with them. I can't remember what the set is called that the stamp is from but is really love it. I always seem to be short on Birthday cards and this is a quick and easy way to make one up.

Love the Robot

I really love this card. One of the girls that I went to the retreat in Alberta was making these cards. She had small sheets of metal that she was running throough the bigshot with an embossing folder. What a really cool look. I was very excited when she gave me one. Thanks Lori!

I'm Back

Well I can't believe that it is May already! I really don't know where the time has gone. I have just been so busy with work and my boys and unfortunately something had to give. I feel like I sorta got my mojo back at the beginning of April though. I went back to Alberta for a Scrappin' Retreat. It was WAY fun!!! These are 2 of the make and takes that we did. Hope you enjoy. I promise it won't be so long in between posts anymore. See you soon! :)
