Labor day weekend was full of LABOR in the bunker...as it began it's transformation from a bunker to a true studio. My DH who is super-duper-mega darling...in case you didn't know, helped me revamp my cabinets and countertops, added new lighting and I have been a paintin' and cleaning and organizing. Things are getting put back and are starting to straighten up, but I still have some work ahead of me. I have found some time to stamp, just not time to post my newest creations. So....without further adieu....here are two RAKs that I sent to my Bellaholic friends. In case you were wondering....I LUV the Bellas and their Fellas and the Fellas and Bellas together. Whew. So what do you think?
Remember when I told you that August through December was jam packed with Birthdays. I wasn't lyin'! =) So I had to stamp some more birthday cards for family and I have posted those here as well. The first card is made with the text boxed set from Paper Trey. If you haven't checked them out yet....you should. Where have you been under a rock or something? Sheesh! Anyway...this is one of the many stamps you receive and I LOVE LOVE LOVE their stamps. They have the cutest stuff. I embossed the chipboard star in gold and then rolled it in dazzling diamonds. The "W" is from the new Outline Alphabet by SU and the definition stamp is from the Define Your Life set. Love those too.
The next card also uses Define Your Life and the coordinating Defining Alphabet. We did this similar technique at convention and I fell in love with it. I am quickly becoming and avid scrapbooker and both of these were must haves. The little stick guy was created from the All In The Family set also by SU. If you haven't seen this set yet....it is DARLING! You can create various stick figures from baby's to kids to mom's and dad's. It even includes a dog and a cat and you can also get accessories such as soccer ball, present and a tutu to go with them. Again....so cute. Love it!
The last card again uses Define Your Life and Defining Alphabet as well as Circle of Friendship which I placed behind the clear button. The punch is from Party Punch (Level 1 HS) which was punched out with the label punch. Also a very cute set that makes good use of your punches. The notebook border was also created with the notebook punch. I pierced the corners and viola. I also used some of the new 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon on this card. It was hard to let it go....because as you know I am a hoarder...but I have come to grips with it now. Hee hee!
In my spare time I whipped up some save the dates for my BIL and future SIL. I will post those later, as I haven't had time to photograph them yet. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, don't forget about the Chinese Auction on Sunday afternoon from 1-4. There will be some fun stuff for you to bid on, a make and take and for one day only 50% off my retired stamps. Come on over if you haven't got plans.
Until later....Happy Stamping!
