Thank you...

Most of the ladies that came to my bridal shower have received their thank you cards, so I feel like I can post these pictures now.

I had a lot of fun making these.

Paper: Pretty in Pink CS, Basic Black CS, Whisper White CS
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Pink Passion
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Garden Greetings
Accessories: Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Dimensionals

The moment you've all been waiting for!!

Well now, the moment you've all been waiting for!! However, I know most of you have received your invites already, so it will be old news, but I still want to share!!

First of all, I must apologize for those of you who received invitations that fell apart when you opened them. Some of the adhesive we bought was not very good, and we tried to re-adhesi-fy the ones that were falling apart, but I don't think we found all of the invitations in need.

In all, we made 145 invitations!

So I have to say that I used mostly Stampin' Up! products. The only supplies that were not SU! product, were vellum, envelopes, and eyelets. We also bought adhesive when we ran out of SU! adhesive, which wasn't the best decision we've ever made.

I got inspiration from MoonlightStamper, visit her blog to see her beautiful work!

Here is a collage of Jamaal's Mom, my mom and dad, and my Aunt all helping me with the invitations. Embossing, embossing, embossing....we are your local experts on embossing....

Here is a photo of the front of the invite.

Embossing on the front of the invite...so much work, but so worth it!!

Congrats on your Baby!

I made a card for my cousin who will be having a baby soon (or possibly has already had a baby...I'm just waiting for the word).

This card is very very simple, I used the Petal Party Simply Scrappin' Kit and two stamps, one from Sale-a-bration, and another from last catalog's hostess stamp sets. It is all on Whisper White Cardstock. And if you're wondering, I used Pink Passion ink. (I used a marker to color only the carriage from the hostess set stamp)

There are a couple new promotions going on right now.

1. The new Occasions Mini is out...and you need to see all the lovely stamps in there!! :D It is amazing. And if you spend $40 on products in the Occasions Mini you get any one item on the "Under $10" page in the Spring/summer catalog, Free!! (You just can't beat free!)

2. If you have been thinking about becoming a SU! Demonstrator, even if just for the wonderful discount...now is the time! SU! is offering a payment plan on the starter kit, but to do this you will need to fill out paperwork, and not complete the agreement online. Contact me if you would like to do this.

3. And the free catalog promotion is still going on! Thru April 30th, if you place an order online with me, you will get a catalog free! (that is a $9.95 value!) :D And if you spend $40 on the Occasions mini products...you'll also get a free item from the "under $10" page!

Happy Stamping!
