Retired Simply Sent card

I was going through some bags and organizing when I came across an unmade card from a stamp camp... likely from last year (I can't remember).  This card was made using elements from our retired Simply Sent collections.  We don't carry Simply Sent kits anymore but we still have the Simply Scrappin' collections where you get all the elements to make scrapbook pages... easily convertable to cards!  See page 165 in the 2012-2013 Idea Book and Catalog.  What?!  Don't have a catalog?  Let's get together!  I have one for you!

Punched Circles All Occasions

Simple and elegant!   Although this one is made for a baby shower, imagine leaving out the saying on the bottom and making a bunch of these.  When it's time for an event, just stamp the words you need from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, punch out with the Word Window Punch and just add the phrase you need!  Perfect for many occasions!

Easter Basket Weave Scrapbook Page

I've always loved the look of a paper basket weave and when you use Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Paper, how can you go wrong??  Each pack of paper is meant to coordinate perfectly with each other, one page with another or front of one to the back of the same one.  The colors coordinate perfectly with Stampin' Up!'s cardstock and what's great is if you don't have the time to come up with a color combination... Just pull out a sheet of Designer Series Paper and pick two of the colors... Instant color match!

Head or Tails? Scrapbook Page

I saw these two pictures in my collection and laughed.  All of my kids (dogs are included in that group) are sitting perfectly and in order from the top picture to the bottom picture, too!  The top picture is all of their "heads" smiling at the camera... The bottom pictures:  Their "tails"!  LOL!  I thought of pennies when I named the page and then began the color scheme...
