Flowers and Stamps

We all have wonderful paper flowers and with the Cricut, you can cut more!  I found this cute little trip to spruce up your flowers – Stamp on them!!

Choose a stamp set – I’m using “Cup of Good Cheer” B1404.  Ink your stamps on your favorite ink pad – I’m using one of my favorites, Chocolate – Z2111.

Randomly stamp over the flower.

I added a few more extras – a red paper flower with a button tied off with our baker’s twine (Z1702).  Add to this cute flower to a card:

And you have a fantastic card for a friend!!  Don’t you just love our new glitter paper (Z1830 and Z1829) – I sure do!  It’s available now!!

Studio J Special (for men too!!)

I love the February Special from Close To My Heart (CTMH):

 “February is sure to be a month of digital delights because you can purchase any Studio J®
layout for only $5—that’s a savings of $1.95 per layout! This is a
great opportunity to try Studio J for the first time. Create adorable
baby layouts with the Wishes and Fishes kit (shown), or use the new
Express Collections with collections of 10 ready-made layouts plus a
front and back cover that are easy to use and professionally designed.
Preserve your memories at a low price for a truly digital delight!”

Guess what?  My wonderful husband made a trip to CA to see his siblings.  He decided to try his hand at digital scrapbooking!  I’m so excited for him and he’s pleased at how easy  it is to create wonderful pages.  All he has to do is copy his original projects and go back to change the journaling for each of his siblings.  He’s able to create a wonderful keepsake, personalize for each of his brothers and sister!  It will be treasured forever.

Jeff getting started out…..He’s not sure about this!! 

After a few pages, he’s doing great!  Jeff is an IT and he’s surprised at how “user friendly” Studio J is!!

Now’s the time to try it out!!  I’m offering a special drawing!  Anyone who orders 5 Studio J layouts in the month of February 2013, will be entered to win one of 5 Studio J 5-Pack for free!  So order 5 and you could win 5 more layouts for FREE.  This offer is through me only!!  If you need help creating, please contact me!!
