Copy the Catalog!

The Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog is great for copying ideas.

I found this card on page 125. I changed the image stamped on the background to "Eastern Blooms" instead of "Kind Thoughts" from page 122, since I didn't have that one.

I used some Soft Sky paper with the new In Colors: Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red.......and you could easily copy this card and use the Baja Breeze for the blue card piece.

Have you noticed all the stamps that fit into the new Square Scallop Punch? This same design could be made with a variety of stamped images with all those choices that fit that punch.

Happy stamping,

Scallop punch Sunflower card

Here's a fun "Happy" card from a stamping class I taught this week. The Stampin' Up! Round Scallop punch was cut to resemble a sunflower. Leaves were cut free hand out of a folded piece of green cardstock and ran through a crimper. Super easy and fun fall colors too!

My inspiration for my card was this "happiness" card made by Patty Bennett.

Happy stamping,

Grad gift scrapbook to college!

I'm sharing a graduation gift I made for my daughter's high school graduation this past May. We have scrapbooked together to make pages for her albums throughout the years and I snuck this one in without her knowing...and put it in the front of her Senior year album. I love the saying I found for this page: " All our dreams can come true....if we have the courage to pursue them." by Walt Disney. And this poem:

We're so glad you're our daughter
Especially on this wonderful day
For it's your graduation

And we love you more than words can say

And perhaps this photo album

Will in some way help to show

We're proud of all you've said and done

And we just wanted you to know

So as you turn these special pages

May you feel our joy and love

Today, tomorrow and always

That you're so deserving of

O.K.......get the box of Kleenexs out! :-) .....she has left for college!!!

I used Stampin' Up! embellishments on this page: chipboard letter "A", ribbon, ribbon slide, brads, punch, cardstock & DSP. I did a colored pencil drawing of her from one of the senior pics I took of her. So this is a special page for her album. I'll have to make a similar page for my son in a few years....I was smart enough to buy the poems for both son & daughter....and as long as I don't lose it in my messy stamp room I'll be good to go!

Enjoy, Jennifer
