One of my coworkers asked me to come over to her house and stamp with her 14 year old daughter and friends at her birthday party. I had designed a treat bag and a card with a bookmark with the new Happy Heart Day and Ginger Blossom Designer Paper which will be available on January 2, 2008. We only made the treat bag.
This stamp set is available as part of the Valentine Bundle
Cardstock: Regal Rose, Real Red, and Ultra White
Inks: Black Stazon, Going Gray Stamp Pad, Regal Rose Stamp Pad.
Accessories: Regal Rose Marker, Certainly Celery Marker, Real Red Marker, and dimensionals, white lunch bag, perforated tool from the cutting tool set.

At work we are having five days of Christmas festivities. We are in groups of six and we are preparing breakfast or lunch or even breakfast and lunch. Needless to say we are going to gain a few pounds but it is fun. Yesterday it was my groups turn to prepare and one of my coworkers mom fixed all of our food down to the dessert. So I thought it would be nice to make here a card using the new Ginger blossom designer paper that will be released on January 2, 2008. I made two cards since and I am going to let the group pick which one to give here.
Cardstock: Cameo Coral, Ruby Red and Ginger Blossom Designer Paper
Stamp Sets: Sincere Salutations and Wonderful Words
Accessories: Crystal Clear Embossing Powder & Heat Tool

Happy Holidays To You All:
In my department at work there is over 40 employees and I wanted to be able to give everyone something for the holiday. So, I said why not give them stamped monogrammed cards. The layout is very simple and easy. I was able to get three cards from one sheet of 8 1/2 by 11 piece of paper. The measurement of the card is 3 1/2 by 4 1/4. I took a picture of three cards to show you that you can place your monogram where ever on the card.
Stamp Set: Typeset Alphabet (retiring on December 31)
Ink: Certainly Celery Ink
Cardstock: Ultra White, Certainly Celery, and Certainly Celery Designer Paper
Accessories: Scallop Punch and 1 3/8 circle punch.
These cards can be made to order.
Thank you for looking
