A Stampin Up box?
It can't be a new order...I'm on a spending freeze!

OK, well maybe an itsy, bitsy, teeny, tiny order...

I scored some clearance rack ribbon!! Six spools should have been $60 - I got it for $19!!! Plus the new postage stamp punch, tiny silver brads, "snow" in a jar and gold Smooch.

AND a new embossing folder, felt Christmas embellishments and shaker card circles...

Close up of the felt pieces! Love 'em!!!

...AND six new stamp sets:
Field Flowers

Forest Festivities

Merry Winter

Polar Party

Snow Much Fun

Warmest of Wishes

But that's *all* I got, lol!!

I saw the cutest little post it pad desk set online HERE, and just had to try it out! I knew Beth was coming over to craft, so we decided to make them together! Very easy too!

Here's mine:
I'm giving mine to Bella's teacher from last year.

And here's the one Beth made:
Hers is prettier!!!
Give it a try! If you do make one, let me know so I can take a peek, OK?

**************************************************

I wanted to take some shots of Bella in her Brownie uniform, but for some reason, she wouldn't cooperate very well!! She kept making goofy faces and wouldn't stand still. Plus her hair looks a hot mess. *sigh* Maybe next week???

But here she is anyway...
Goofy kid!

And.....

...in case you were wondering...


...there are only 33 more days til we leave for PARIS!!!

I love the little 6x6 purse/gift card holder...love it!

And the pop-up cards! Holy cow! Really amazing. The Rich Razzleberry paper isn't too shabby either. :)

Rita said...

You've been busy making cards! The pop up birthday cake is awesome! And another box of goodies to play with, too! Waffle paper? Never heard of that. The desk sets are cute. (I like yours better.) And Bella looks like a happy camper! Can hardly wait to see all the pics from your Paris trip! :):)

Heatherlyn said...

Those are the CUTEST cards EVER!!!! Seriously, and how can you top that pop out cake! But the little purse looking one and the bones one were adorable too!!! Sigh, I might have to figure out how to make those. Seriously I've got to organize my closets but there are so many other more fun things to do!

The Blue Zoo said...

You make the coolest stuff!! =) And your little Brownie is adorable.

blueviolet said...

Goofy or not, Bella's adorable! And oh my gosh, her teacher is gonna go crazy over that Halloween card!

Deanna said...

Love that goofy picture of the Bellagirl. I had to sew patches on grand Dakota's shirt this past week. Busy, busy, busy!

You got lots of goodies. I can't wait to show off mine once I get them. I found a new tool yesterday that I have fallen in love with. It punches holes, sets eyelets, brads and stuff with just a squeeze. It is truly amazing! I have fought with eyelet punches for years and they always win. This one... OMG... I am in love lol.

Catch you soon and again... thank you so much for all of your help!

Lots of very nice cards there. Those 3D pop-up cards are super cool.
