Here is another card I made using the On My Couch stamp set from Paper Trey Ink. I stamped the chair on Heidi Grace paterned paper and cut it out, as well the pillow.

July classes (Registration until FRIDAY -July 31st)
Sunny Day Purse Class,
For All You Do Stationery and

Here is a card I made for this weeks Mojo Monday challenge. Instead of circle I used the cut out butterfly. I really wanted to use this set but I was stuck with color combinations. The humid weather is getting to me and I don't have much inspiration for creating. So I remembered while ago I saw on Andrea Walford's blog she used the same color combination, so I decided to go with very vanilla, kraft and chocolate chip. I usually don't do monochromatic that much, but in a bit I will post another monochromatic card.
Scroll down for comlete list of supplies.


Supplies:
stamps: simple friendship
ink: chocolate chip
paper: kraft, very vanilla, chocolate chip, bella bleu dsp
other: photo corner punch, paper piercer, corner rounder punch, doodlebug sugar cookie brads, chocolate chip ribbon, crystal effects

As I told you the other day I was working on a new project and template. It is the first project on the left side, the tote. While working on it I realized that the tote can be made into box with a little bit of modification. The box in the middle is 5.5 tall, 4.5" wide and 2" deep, it can be a perfect box for cards(A2 size), the second box is little smaller it's 5" tall, 4.5" wide and 2" deep.Those can be perfect for packing gifts. I made a set of cards using the Inspired By Nature set to put in the first tote. The tote is 1.5" deep, 7.25" tall (with the handles) and 4.5" wide.
For the first one I used Inspired by Nature set, for the second one I used Paradise stamp set and On Your Birthday and for the third I used Season of Friendship.
As well I put together printable templates for 4 variations (or more) of the template and step by step instructions for the tote with the cards ( instructions for both) and the box on the far right
You can purchase it by clicking add to card button for $5.95.
The templates will beging being emailed tomorrow (july 28th) morning, since I have few errands to run today and tonight.
