Congratulations Baby!

My neighbor had a baby girl this morning so I whipped up a quick card for all the neighbors to sign.  I love the new Baby Bundle stamp set and any pink/brown combo!  I'd love to hear what you think.

This card is actually a full sheet of Chocolate Chip card stock folded in half to make a 5-1/2 by 8-1/2 card so all the neighbors can sign.  I added a panel of Pink Pirouette and a smaller panel of Chocolate Chip.  The stamped image was too small for this larger card so I stamped it on copy paper and enlarged it to 140% on my copier and printed onto Very Vanilla card stock.  Then I colored it in with markers.  The inside bottom border also uses stamps from the Baby Bundle stamp set and the Congratulations is from the Whimsical Words stamp set that is now retired.  I also used some yummy satin Chocolate Chip ribbon that is retired.  I sure hope the new family likes it!

Busy, Busy, Busy

We had a very relaxing 4th of July weekend away at the beach with friends.  It was so nice to get away and spend some time in the sand and sun.  I forgot my camera so I need to get pictures from the other ladies who came with us so I can do a few MDS pages of our weekend!  We are also preparing for my parents to come visit us here in Japan.  They will be here in two days and I can hardly wait!  In the meantime, I have to prep for Stamp Camp and do a sample baby thank you for a friend of mine.  I will try to share some cards very soon.  I hope everyone is having a great summer.  I know we are.

Color Renovation Color Kits


With all the excitement of Stampin’ Up!’s color renovation, you might be wondering what the best way is to update your existing Stampin’ Up! products. Wonder no more! With the new color kits, you can get all of Stampin’ Up!’s new colors (and just the colors you need) without the expense of replacing products you already have.

Be sure to check out the Color Renovation Color Kits offered by Stampin' Up.  This is a great way to add the new colors to your supplies without breaking the bank.  For example, the Card Stock and Classic Stampin' Pad New Color Kit for $34.95 is actually less expensive than buying the six ink pads individually PLUS you get a 24-pack of colored card stock (4 each of the 6 new core colors).
