Happy January!  I want to quickly show ya what we made in our card club this week.

(Speedy-version blogging — the 2 year old is almost done with lunch!:) )

The new small pack of paper in the occasions catalog is darling.  You can’t go wrong with these colors/prints. It’s called Fresh Prints dsp (designer series paper). (click any links to check details out in my online store.)

That stamp set is a newbie … a cute newbie.  The stamps and framelits can be purchased in a bundle to save some $, too — check it out here!

Have you ever tried a telescoping card? I know most people  in my club hadn’t, so we just had to play with these! I haven’t made a tutorial of my own (yet?), but they are everywhere! :) Seriously so easy and quick.  Just find a combination of coordinating shapes (in a variety of sizes) to piece together, and you are set.  I decided to use the floral frames framelits here and the 1-3/4″ circle punch.  That’s it!

All opened/unfolded. (Untwisted?) Love that flower?  Me too.  It’s from the regarding dahlias stamp set. The other 2 stamp sets we used there are perfect pennants and yippee skippee. :)

I loved a simple layout used by Julie Davison, so I changed it up a bit for our last card.  Simple is always a favorite!! :) We used the You’re Amazing stamp set and, again, my new favorite paper – Fresh Prints dsp.

Oh, and the banner pieces and coordinating punch?  Those are a teaser from SALE-A-BRATION!!  Our biggest sale of the year starts Jan 28th!  Both of these items (the banner stamp set of 10 and the punch) are just 2 of the items you can earn for free during Sale-a-bration.  !!!

Thanks for popping in!  I have a messy 2-year-old face to go clean! :) Go check out the rest of the BRAND new occasions catalog — HERE!
