March Stamp Club Cards

We will be making these four cards for my upcoming stamp clubs. They are all based on the same design/sketch. I want to show the gals how you can create several different looks with just one layout. All supplies are SU! unless otherwise noted.

Smile card: Die cut blooms, Eastern Elegance rub-ons, lots of dots wheel, white embossing powder, red striped ribbon, sizzix leaf die cut. Colors are pumpkin pie, bashful blue, real red, certainly celery, and kraft. DSP from the new mini is used for the blue dotted strip of paper
Easter card: Basket made with small tag punch and 1 1/4 circle punch. DSP is retired from last year. Eggs in basket are from Loads of Love Accessories set. Colors are so saffron, pretty in pink, and creamy caramel. Ribbon is pink taffeta.
St. Patty's Day card: Hearts from the Simply Said set and stamped with certainly celery and wild wasabi make the clover. Greeting is from one of the retired All Year Cheers. Paper and ink are wild wasabi and so is the double stitched ribbon. DSP and brade make flower center. White card base is from PTI (Papertrey Ink).
One of a Kind card: Uses One of a Kind stamp set and matching Berry Bliss DSP. Paper is close to cocoa and flower stamped on pretty in pink. Ink is ribbon are purely pomegranate. The flower center is inked with rose red and cocoa markers, stamped, punched, and covered with crystal effects to create a pebble. I was trying to create a look similar to the build-a-brad, but I don't think it turned out as well as b-a-b because the marker ink sort of faded.

Not such a good blogger...

As it turns out, I'm a much better blog reader than blog writer! I really had good intentions to keep a blog so I could post cute projects for my SU! customers to enjoy, but posting going on. Well, here's to turning over a new leaf (hopefully). I made this little notebook a couple of months ago inspired by Michelle Wooderson's cute notebooks found here. It's for all those little logins and passwords that I've created at various websites. I realized this was a need when I was locked out of my online banking because I couldn't remember how to access it. I plan to add tabs to help me find what I need. I'm going to print up the websites, logins, and passwords on return address labels and just stick them in the book. The main image is Clickabella, paper stamps, and accessories are SU!, and the image is colored with Copic markers.
