Doodle-y Doo!

As a scrapbooker I am a big fan of Stampin' Up! alphabets -- they allow me to say anything! So I couldn't wait to get my hands on the Doodle Alphabet in the Spring Mini Catalog.
Here I used it to make nametags for Easter treat buckets for our preschool 3s. I colored them quickly with watercolor pencils (101879). When you're stamping fewer than 15 you can take the time to make the details in each and every letter really POP! The Spring Fever Promotion makes this alphabet a bargain at 50% off. If you ordered it -- you would love it! I do. But hurry -- Spring Fever ends with the month of March.....

One cute crab!

I love the new Crab and Company set in Stampin' Up!'s Spring Mini Catalog. I saw a card very similar to this in the gallery at Splitcoast Stampers and did my own version. It's that awesome Cool Caribbean Cardstock, accented by Taken with Teal and Whisper White. I stamped the images in Black Staz-On Ink (101406) and used blender pens (102845) and ink pads to color in the creatures.

Crab and Company is just one of the sets you could select at 50% off during the Spring Fever Promotion that ends March 31st!

Happy to Scrapbook -- Quickly!

It doesn't get easier than this! See the word "together" on this page? I didn't stamp it. Didn't sticker it. Didn't rub it on. It's printed on that fabulous Petals and Paisley Designer Series Double Sided paper. A little cardstock, a little designer paper, and a teeny tiny bit of stamping. Not even 15 minutes worth of scrapping.

The paper and the stamp set are part of the Stampin' Up! Spring Fever Promotion. Catch it before the end of March....

Everything's Coming Up Polka Dots & Paisley!

The UPS Man has been busy delivering the fabulous Stampin' Up! Spring Bundle of Polka Dots and Paisley to many of you. So I'll be posting some samples now of things you can make with this great set.

This is a very simple card but a favorite color combination of mine -- Cool Caribbean, Basic Black and Whisper White. Only one ink involved here -- good old Basic Black. That and my "go-to" Black & White Gingham Ribbon. Ta -da!

If you haven't ordered the Bundle it's a great value -- stamps, coordinating wheel, great patterned paper and another Spring Mini item at 50% off. Read about it here and place your order with me before March goes out like a lamb!
