This toilet paper tube mini album is also for my Jan. 7th class. I demonstrated these for another group of customers in November and they enjoyed them so much that I thought I would demonstrate them for my regular group next week. All supplies are SU!, the papers are from their Merry Moments collection. I filled mine with black and white pictures of my 2 great-nieces from Christmas 2008. I printed the pics in black and white to showcase the colors in the papers. I think it worked! I really like these little TP mini albums, I love the little journaling tags and what a great way to recycle!
This card was lifted from joyk on Splitcoaststampers. I changed the colors and patterned papers a little to make it a bit more gender-neutral, but the basic design is all hers. All papers, stamps and inks are SU! This is my first attempt at a Stair Step card and I can't wait to see how my customers like them!
I lifted this card from Splitcoastampers too - from gbarron. I was looking for a way to showcase my new SU! "With All My Heart" clear stamp set and I fell in love with this card. You can't tell on here, but the paper is glittered, It's brand new and it's really nice in person. The scalloped edge really adds a lot of interest. It showcases the backside of the double-sided paper. It's a bit tricky to do, so I hope my customers don't struggle with it. Again all supplies are SU!
Here is a baby card I made for our neighbors whose baby girl was born on Christmas Eve. All papers are SU! I didn't have any pink patterned papers for the flowers so I stamped my own! I also used a SU! textured plate for the dots. Used a lot of pop dots on this one too!!!
Here is my take on the Card of the Month for January. January's challenge is "Tangerine with Tearing" I chose to do a Criss Cross Card. The striped and dotted papers have been in my stash forever and I thought they went perfect with the Tangerine/Orange. Let me know what you think!

Here is a purse I made for Dylan's girlfriend for Christmas. All the papers are SU! - Raspberry Tart, I think. Used my Gypsy to tinker around and get it just the right size to hold a gift card. Added her name, using Gypsy Font to personalize it a bit. Hope she likes it : )
Wouldn't have been possible to make big enough without my Expression - thanks to my hubby again for getting it for me for Valentines Day! Between that and my birthday Gypsy I'm one happy, lucky gal this year!
Here are a couple cards I made recently. One is a birthday card for my niece and the other is a birthday card for a friend. I made both using my Big Shot Movers and Shapers dies. First time I've used it - so much fun to play around with. I love the little window!
All of the papers are SU! The tree stamp is also SU! and the kitty stamp is a Penny Black.

Here is my first attempt at a Word Book. I always wanted to try one and thought the upcoming birth of my new great-niece would be the perfect opportunity. We draw names for Christmas in my family and I have my youngest niece to buy for. She is pregnant with her first child and baby "Bella" is due January 9th, 2010. Please feel free to leave a comment if you like.
