A $50 purchase isn't hard when you look at page 38 and 39 of the 2016 Occasions catalog which has products that would perfectly compliment this stamp set! The Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack is great!
Since the theme of January's Stamp Class was Valentine's Day, we made a cute airplane card that would be great for your significant other or even for that little boy in your life...

The Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Pack has some adorable patterns and would be a great addition to your Valentine's Day cards!
In this Valentine's Day card, I used all three of the products I mentioned above. I created two versions of the same card by layering the two hearts I die-cut oppositely. One, the Rose Red heart is on top and the other card, the Whisper White heart is on top.
You'll also notice that I punched the corners of each card with different sides of the Curvy Corner Trio Punch. Which one is YOUR favorite?

Here was my personal swap... I decided I wasn't going to buy a thing, but I didn't have enough to make all the same color, so I made 5 different colors based on which cardstock I had the most of... smart, huh? :)
This swap used Tangelo Twist, but I also made Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Rose Red and Lost Lagoon. Shame on me for not getting pictures of all the colors, but all the cards had the same layout just different color butterflies and base card.
Any color for base and butterflies, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla

|Here is the tag we made at the Stampin' Up! 2015 Convention.|
|And here, I have mounted the tag to a card to create another something special. The Old Olive cardstock layer has been scored in a grid pattern and then distressed by crumpling the paper and rolling the corners and edges. Kind of a cool effect!|
Here are more samples of the "Your Presents" stamp set that will be available on September 1, 2015. As I mentioned in the previous post, this is a year-round stamp set. The two handmade cards are what we created at the Stampin' Up! 2015 Convention as our Make-n-Takes and I just love the varied ideas on the same stamp set!
Part of the fun of Convention is getting the awesome bag and the free goodies as well as cheering on our fellow demonstrators and their accomplishments. This year, in addition to the bag, we received a whole pack of the upcoming Holiday Catalogs! I won another stamp set and all attendees received a newly formulated Basic Black Archival Ink stampin' pad. I have used the stamp pad already and I LOVE the full BLACK color of the image! I know you'll love it!
I have put together a sample using the stamp set we got with our bag at check in called Your Presents. Although featured in the Holiday Catalog with a holiday themed card, this stamp set can be used all year long for birthdays, anniversaries or baby showers. A technique that goes really well with this stamp set is the kissing technique which is the process of stamping one stamp onto another stamp and then putting that down on cardstock.. so fun and the possibilities are endless!
Let me know what you think!

I have a really good friend (and downline) who despises torn washi tape. She will cut the edges straight and then place even though the card has torn washi-tape. I have been planning how her birthday card would look for almost a year now.
You can guess my inspiration, right?
It HAD to have TORN washi-tape... and not just a little.
I have to say that it actually turned out really cute (in my eyes) and I was really excited to give it to her today.
Happy birthday, Pam! Lots of love and birthday wishes to you!
