August Stamp of the Month- Framed

I am so excited about the August Stamp of the Month- FRAMED!  This stamp set coordinates with the ALL NEW Artistry Cricut Collection- YAY!

PLUS, it's great for ALL OCCASIONS!  

Is it too early to start making Christmas Cards???  

The first project I did with FRAMED was to stamp the frame and then color in the word "Thanks".  Since I received the Stamp of the Month BEFORE getting the Artistry cartridge, I hand cut each of these.... Boy am I glad to have that cartridge now!  

Then, I created a bunch of Thank You cards for my daughter to write after her birthday party.  I used the Paper Fundamentals papers in a couple different colors, which I LOVE, and some shimmer trim in white and pink, gotta have some sparkle!  These cards were super simple to mass produce (20) in one afternoon!  

Did you know that you can get Framed, the August Stamp of the Month for only $5 with a $50 purchase??  So when you order Artistry, you'll have to pick one up!  Plus it's another great stamp set that coordinates :)

Santa Clara Scrapbook Expo Recap

Guess who was at the Scrapbook Expo in Santa Clara this past weekend?????  ME!!!!!

I was so excited to partner with fellow consultant Kristina Baldwin to do this show!  Let me tell you all about it!

Thursday we spent the day setting up and getting our booth to look like this:

Then we got to work!
Myself, Kristina, Deanna and Denise (Not pictured: Deb)

We had a fabulous time meeting new faces, seeing friends from all over, doing make & takes with hundreds and serving our fabulous customers!  

I LOVED being at Expo this weekend, and especially enjoyed meeting new friends who live near me!  I look forward to seeing my Expo friends SOON!

Check out the awesome make & take that Kristina designed!  I love the 3- color stamping that we did using sponge daubers.  The paper fundamentals, dots and sparkles and shimmer trim allowed each person to make theirs unique.  

I created a little gift bag with Artiste to show how you could attach the tag to a gift bag :)

And then I created this card to show how you could even put a tag on a card.  
Supplies used:
Blossom Paper Pack
Zoe Paper Pack
Happy Everything Stamp Set
Paper Fundamentals Whimsy pack
Flamingo Dots
Aqua Dots
Mini Clothespins
Glacier Twine

Stampers With An Attitude Blog Hop- Zoe

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!  

Who are the Stampers with Attitude????  This is the team led by my upline Kimberly Moss!!!

If you are coming here from Wendy's Blog you are on the right path. 

This month we are featuring the the Zoe Paper Pack. #ctmhzoe

I absolutely LOVE that Close To My Heart has released a paper pack EARLY for us to use in August!  This paper pack is so versatile.  The colors are summery, and fun!

Today I have TWO Cards to share with you!

This first card features the Zoe paper patterns in a starburst fashion.  (CLICK HERE to learn how to do starburst cards)

I used the August Stamp of the Month, Framed, along with some *new* Coral Shimmer Trim on the card.  I did sneak in a piece of patterned paper from Wanderful as well (blue dots).  

This second card is inspired by a card I received from Close To My Heart in the mail.  To create the grey chevron paper, I stamped it using the In The Background stamp set.  Then I stamped "thanks" from You Mean The World To Me Stamp Set.   To finish the card off, I added some white sequins with sparkles in the center.  

Want to see more??  Keep hopping along and check out all the other fabulous work done by my teammates :)  

The next team member on our blog hop is Aggie- check out her fabulous Zoe projects.  Be sure to leave a comment too :)
