I love this stampset. It was one of the first ones on my wishlist when the new catalog came out. Kindness (truly does) Matter!!

Today's pocket was made with the new Occasions Alphabet stampset. Can you believe mine hadn't seen ink yet?!!

I'm trying to decide whether to order the new petite pocket die for the Big Shot and in the meantime I received my preorder of the new simply scored tool that debuts in the Holiday Mini on September 1. So I thought I'd try making my own pocket envelopes for giftcards, notes, etc.

I wanted to post a recent project with the Strength & Hope stampset as it is only available for a few more days (until August 31st). This is a very special stampset where a portion of the proceeds on every set sold go to the Breast Cancer Research Fund, so if you haven't gotten your stampset yet, contact me to order one...you'll be supporting a great cause and the stampset is really beautiful.

This is another one of our stamp camp projects. I used the scallop envelope die for the big shot with some of the new flirtateous specialty dsp to creat the base. The tag is stamped on naturals ivory with stamps from the Clearly for You stampset and the flower is from the new blossoms bouquet triple layer punch and the lace trim border punch. I used a large pearl jewel in the centre and the ribbon is whisper white taffeta. Oh and the chocolate is 'dark chocolate with raspberry' by ghiradelli:)

This was the fun flowers bookmark we made in wisteria wonder at Stamp Camp this weekend. Once you cut the flowers with the fun flowers big shot die you crumple them up then sponge the edges with the same colour of ink, then you layer them with dimensionals and circle punches (that you don't see) and attach a ribbon at the back. To finish them off we added a tiny tag made with the tiny tag punch and stampset (image 'love') and with the angel from the charmed stampset stamped lightly in the background. This is then tied onto a button along with a crown charm with linen thread and then attached to the centre of the layered flower with a glue dot:) We used the new ruffled ribbon for the tale of the bookmark too:)

Another one of the projects we made at yesterday's stamp camp. Although I've seen these totes in several places on the web, Amy has the best directions for how to make them so here is a link.

It feels like I've prepared all summer for today, my first ever stamp camp, and with it 5 projects for my participants. I might have been too ambitious!;) But I'm sure we'll have fun.

Again, some more mocha morning dsp, and some first edition. Add to that some crumbcake and very vanilla cardstock, my new favourite frames impressions folder, my new favourite colour, wisteria wonder, and the brand new Creative Elements stampset and voila!:))
