    February’s Second Girl’s Night Card, Enjoy the Moment.

    February’s Second Girl’s Night card. Here is February’s Second Girl’s Night card… Did you miss the first one?? Check out Sunday’s post here. I wonder … did you miss this stamp set in the Mini?? It is called Enjoy the Moment. I love this and really think of fall when I originally saw it. Why?? because that is when I collect seed from the dry flowers in the garden. That really is what these images are. Seed pods of all sorts. The largest image is poppy seed pods. That is usually the first pods you can collect. Mid summer usually. I know, ANYWAY… This card came together pretty quick cause…

    February’s First Girl’s Night card, love that DSP!

    February’s First Girl’s Night card I had fun at February’s First Girl’s Night. I do an online version, grab yours for this month!! A little information… You will make two of two different designs (4 cards total). Last month you would have gotten two of these, and then Tuesday you will see the second design. You get all the punched out pieces, die cuts, enough twine and cardstock pieces to make two. You need to add your stamps, ink and adhesive. Sadly, however, the Berry Delightful DSP (designer series paper) was only for Sale-a-Bration which ended on Sunday night (2/28). I sure hope that you did not wait. Insides!! Erica…

    Clock is Ticking Down To say the Clock is Ticking down is an understatement. Sunday is the final day to take advantage of what Sale-a-Bration has to offer… whether it is the FREE products with purchase or the Bonus items with your joining of my team. It really is the… LAST DAY!! The clock above is truly ticking down… All orders and joining needs to be done my 11:50 pm on Sunday. With that clock ticking, You can still create beautiful works of art. Just as we did Wednesday night for card class. I sure had fun because we played this or that. I pulled a few choices and everyone…

    Weekend of Treat Holders, no I did not plan it…

    Weekend of Treat Holders I figured why not, Weekend of Treat Holders. These little cuties are from the Winter Creative Escape in January. I warned you I made a TON of samples. These little Mini Curvy Keepsake treats used the DSP , dies and felt flowers too. I actually was super surprised by what would fit inside. Two little snack size Hershey’s fit without fighting it. First, Purple Posy cardstock and just stamped on the large cactus. The felt flowers, I will admit were a struggle. I used the Multipurpose glue on some and then Mini glue does on the others. I did prefer the Mini glue dots, just because…

Just to help you out… You will want to just two slots each time. TIP: The two stamps that I used here are smaller. Meaning, that using a full sized ink pad gets kinda messy. You may just want to…
