Grapefruit Grove- In-color week

  Grapefruit Grove is today's new in-color.  Wouldn't it be fun to be one of the people to name the new colors. I often wonder what the guidelines are to help determine the name.

Have you seen the new Delightfully Detailed laser cut specialty paper.  It is lovely.

One sheet is 12 by 12 with a variety of flowers and leaves that are lightly connected.  It was very easy to snip an area to place on the card for today.

This is one of the 5 cards you will be able to make in my in-color card class.

Would you like to be able to receive my email announcing all my classes?  Just fill out the form on the right hand side of this page and your email will automatically be placed on my email list.

Tomorrow I will feature a card made using Pineapple punch, a bright yellow.

Lovely Lipstick-In-Color Week

 Have you seen the new in-colors?  They are bright and bold and lovely shades.  Since I am a ROYGBIV girl I will be featuring them in color order. In case you are not familiar with ROYGBIV it is a way to remember the colors of the rainbow. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.

 In addition to featuring each color this week, I will be sharing some of the new stamp sets I have purchased.  The set today is called Vivid Vases and includes a matching punch.  It was designed by Mary Fish one of the 24 Million Dollar lifetime winners.  Each person with a million dollars in lifetime sales, visits the home office and gets to help design a stamp set.  Doesn't that sound like fun.

Tomorrow I will be featuring a card made with Grapefruit Grove.  Try and guess what the featured stamp set might be.

Share what you love-Fun fold Friday

  I love making cards that have a fun fold to them.  This card is one that my friend Dina showed me how to make last weekend.  We got together to share ideas and get each other inspired.  I know the weekend helped me.

Once you fold the card stock, add the designer paper, and a focal point you can open the card and place a message inside.

Does it look hard to make this card?  I know when I first saw it I thought it looked hard, but it is really easy.  And best of all it will fit in a normal sized envelope.

I have a technique club that meets once a month and this was one of the cards they made this month.

Next week I will be featuring the new in-colors.  Check back for a video of how to open and make the best use of the new ink pads, a card made each day with one of the new in-colors, and information about an in-color club I will be starting in June.

Would you like to get a notice in your emails each time I create a new post.  Just sign up to be put on the email list in the spot you see on the right hand side of this page.

Have a convinced you that this is a great bundle to have in your stamping stash?  I hope so.

Share What You Love Suite-Template Thursday

 Does this card look similar to one you have already seen this week?  I featured this layout on Monday for a  Make it Simple card.  We made these cards at a Butterfly Friends meeting recently.  

I like how this template shows off several of the designs from the Share What You Love designer paper.

My post yesterday showed a really great box that will hold all these cards and envelopes to mail them in.  This would be a great gift to give a friend.

Tomorrow, I will share a card with a fun fold that my friend Dina showed me how to make last weekend.  Looks so much more complicated than it really is.

Share What You Love Suite-Wednesday Wow

Nothing like a clear box with some great cards inside.  I made this set at a recent Butterfly Friends meeting.  

The belly band was wrapped around the Acetate box an used the Pearlized Doilies and the Velvet ribbon.

The box had enough room for 4 cards and envelopes with room to spare.  This would WOW anyone you gave it to for a gift.

Tomorrow I will share the simple template that was used to make the cards that fit inside this box.
