WOWSA.....Fabulous Folds Card!

OK.....I love math but I'm certainly not an glad there are people willing to share their ideas!!!  This is such a cool unique!!!  I'f you make one of these, I'd love to see it!!  Please leave a comment with a link to it!
Don't forget Sale-a-bration is in full swing!!  For every $50 you spend you get to choose a free Sale-a-bration product!  There are some really cool stamp sets, cardstock, embossing folder, even a punch, etc.  Also remember that if you spend $150 then you start earning hostess dollars also!  So with a $150 order you will get to choose 3 Sale-a-bration items PLUS you receive $25 in hostess dollars (more hostess dollars the more you spend) to either spend on specially priced hostess items OR on anything in either of the catalogs!

Sweet Strawberry Crush

Does this not look delicious?!?!  I had a few ladies over for a Stamp and Stack and decided I wanted some cute fun Valentine snacks for them.  I found these glass bottles of Strawberry Crush and thought how cute!  I made these fun tags for them by using the Two Tags Die and punching a circle out for the neck.  I cut the cute bottom edge with the Apothecary Accents Framelits by just inserting the edge of the tag in the framelit.  That cute ticket is stamped from the new stamp set called That's the Ticket in the spring catalog.  I punched it out with the ticket punch which coordinates with this stamp set beautifully. 

I also made these cute treats!  Isn't pinterest amazing.....I found this idea here .  I used the Lovely Letters Alphabet stamps and the super cute Owl punch along with the scallop circle and circle punches to make these.  There are sweet yummy Dove Chocolates under those letters!

Fat Quarters Challenge

Hopefully some of you took advantage of the 99 cent fat quarters on the SU clearance rack!  A sweet friend of mine gave some to the ladies in a quilting passion group she is part of and she challenged them to make something with it and bring it to share.  You aren't going to believe what beautiful things these ladies made with these fat quarters.  First up is this GORGEOUS tree skirt:

Next is this AMAZING quilt:

How about this hot pad BEAUTY:

Thank you ladies so much for sharing your awesome talents with me!  I just can't get over what you did with those pieces of fabric.  Your projects are AMAZING!!!

Happy New Year!

I apologize for being absent for so long.  I'm sure all of you can relate....we were just so busy with the holidays and all the normal "busy-ness" of having three kids!  I hope all of you are enjoying wonderful holidays and that your 2013 will be the best year yet!  I wanted to pop in and share this cute but uber simple card I made.  I used some of the super cute papers from the Festival of Prints papers from the holiday catalog and I just punched 1" squares out of them.  I mounted them on some Lucky Limeade cardstock which I had cut a border on with one of the Finishing Touched Edgelits Dies.  The Happy New Year sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and it was cut out with the Bitty Banners framelit.  That beautiful sentiment along the bottom is from the retired Heard from the Heart stamp set which was just recently on the Clearance Rack for a REALLY good price!  I can't believe all the goodies on the Clearance Rack over the last couple of weeks!  I don't think Stampin Up has ever had stamps on there....I've been able to get really good deals on ink, cardstock and dies but never stamps!  There are some really cute sets over there....if you haven't checked them out you really should as there are some awesome deals which are going fast!
