Hello There


                                                          TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS
Hi all,

I was quiet this weekend. It was busy weekend at home. First thing Saturday I had two back to back dentist appointments cleaning and old fillings replacement. To be honest, I am glad I found my current dentist, I enjoy going to the dentist now (hope I don't jinx it LoL). Then did a run to Target and then in the evening we all went out to get some shopping done for picture day at daycare and then went out to dinner, yet with a 2.5 yr old and 1 yr old (we went to Panera, nothing fancy LoL)
Then today I was busy doing the videos for the Creativity by mail program and as well church and grocery shopping, so got no time to edit some pictures to post. Finally I did edit one.
I made this one again for the display boards and I used the Hello there hostess set along  with the decorative masks. I like how it turned out.

For all things and ink swatch kits

                                                          TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS
Hi all,

I have couple things to share today. I have been busy working on a system to have swatches from all the inks I own (and you can add piece of card stock on the back of each pocket). I went with little page protectors with 2"X2" pockets and just used rings to hold them together. I printed little squares with all the color names, and some I wrote by hand.

I ordered bunch of these protectors so I have some extra. Do you want your own kit? I have little kits prepared that include:
5 page protectors (each fits 20 squares, one side, you can use both sides)
3 binder rings 
50 inserts with all current SU! colors printed on Whisper White card stock.
The price of the kits is $10 which includes shipping within the use. (if you are viewing this via email the paypal button won't show up, just go to http://ilinacrouse.com to order your kit)
                                                 

                                                 

                                                 

As well last night I posted the new Class by Mail - Holiday Home --> details are HERE

And now onto today's eye candy. I CASE-d these simple notecards from the Stampin' Success magazine and whipped bunch of them in no time. I used some items from the new Holiday Mini catalog.

Hi all,

Last night I promised that I will post today the details for the new class by mail. So here we are.
The new class by mail features a new stamp set from the new Holiday Mini catalog called Holiday Home and matching framelits that are not really required.

In this class you will receive:
-pdf instructions how to put the box and cards together (no video)
-supplies to make the box and 5 cards (you can chose 10 cards if you like)- envelopes are included
-12 6x6 sheets of the new dsp from the Holiday mini (so you can chose if you like different cover for your box, or different design dsp for the cards) called Nordic Noel
-in the notes please let me know if you want the cards with punched stars background or embossed stars background, or a mix of both.

The registration is open until September 1st, and materials will be mailed around September 8th , depending when I receive the order from Stampin' Up! with all your supplies.

The price is $23 for 5 cards, and $30 for 10 cards (US shipping addresses only) (10 cards option doesn't double the amount of dsp)

Honeycomb Hello Mushroom


                                                          TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS

Hi all,

Another quick post to share another sample I made for the Display Boards.
I used the set Honeycomb Hello along with Kinda Eclectic (butterflies) to decorate the mushroom box.
I used Neutrals and Subtles dsp stack for the mushroom, and fringe scissors to make the grass going around.

It's way past bed time, so I am keeping it short.

Tomorrow night I will announce new class by mail. I have posted a sneak peek on my facebook page

Seasonally Scattered Scrapbook Page

                                                          TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS
Happy Monday!

It's still Monday, right? It's 11.43pm....
This will be just a quick post (it's been busy day like every other Monday), but I still wanted to share.
I made this page for the Display Boards at Convention using the Seasonally Scattered stamp set and I added the "You" from Work of Art set. I used the Project life dies to cut the journaling cards, as well as the pictures and the "title"

If you follow me on facebook I have been posting some sneak peeks there, I still need to take decent pictures to share them on my blog :)

Hope you like it.
And in meantime I am preparing new class by mail.

Creation Station - Kinda Eclectic




Hi all,

Welcome to another Creation Station blog hop.This week we feature the Kinda Eclectic  stamp set. This is one of my favorite stamp sets from the main catalog. It has so many possibilities.
I have 2 projects for you today. First is a 3-d letter A box, that I made for my daughter Anna. But it can be perfect as a teacher's gift, as well to decorate your and your child's desk.
The second is a simple card that I made. I stamped the images on Very Vanilla card stock and immediately I embossed with Clear embossing powder.








Well....that's all I have for you today, but there is more inspiration right around the corner - head to the next blog by Kathy Kartak. Or put it in reverse to see Jen's creations for this week.

Seasonally Scattered in Gold

                                                          TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS
Hi all,

Happy Saturday. It's been busy day here and I am already falling asleep. LoL.

Anyway...today I have another display sample to share with you. For this simple card I used the Seasonally Scattered set that I embossed in gold, and then I adhered to some gold printed vellum and added individual sequins from the gold sequin trim.

Pretty simple, yet effective :)
