My Bag O' Scraps Giveaway!

Hey, Stampers!!
My scraps were literally exploding out of their folders so I knew something had to be done!  I started pulling out extra pieces to give away and before I knew it, this is what I had!! 


 I'm in the process of bagging and distributing them to my local stampers this week! 


  Now, my stampers can have some fun, new toys and I can have well-organized baskets of scrap folders!!

There's nothing like a little organization!!
Happy Stampin'!!

Father's Day, Pretty Spring Card and a Preview!

Hey Stampers!
We're getting set for Father's Day and of course we could not have a class go by without getting our "girl" on!  Here we are creating to our heart's content!  There are always lots of laughs, fun and camaraderie!! Love these gals!!

Next week it's a complimentary card for a Brighton gift bag. Happily, it screamed Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay and the Mosaic Embossing Folder!!  There's a preview down below!

Email me!
Happy Stampin',
Ree ♫•*¨*•.¸¸♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪


 I also love that they are all confident enough to follow their own creative instincts and think outside of the box if the spirit leads them!
 Love those Happy Watercolor (soon to be gone forever-sniff!) smudges and that pretty Crisp Cantalope ribbon, paper and ink!!
 A different kind of smudging with this card--We sponged around the edges with Crumb Cake ink.

Art Gallery Cards With Ree on Monday!

From one extreme to the other!!  We enjoyed making these large purse cards (Thank you for the inspiration from your demo-ing how to make larger tags with the punch, Trudy.  When I saw it, I thought, "Purse!"  and so here is my design.  We made them into "brocade" with embossing and they can have either a message or gift card holder inside.  An elegant birthday or wedding gift!!

 The small purses were CAS'd from a youtube video that I found!  They feature wrapped Hershey Nuggets and would make perfect little pick-me-up gifts or shower favors! Toooooo cute!!








Welcome, Gail!  Good job, today!!!








TAL Explosion Box Class and Mother's Day

We also made Explosion Boxes at this weeks TAL class at the Titusville Art League!  We had a terrific time there and then we enjoyed a fabulous lunch together at Caffe' Chocolate to honor our friend, Mary, who is moving back to Ohio for the next 6 months!  We will miss you, sweet Mary!!  More great ideas!!






I presented mine to my sweet daughters at our family beach Mother's Day picnic!  I filled them with wonderful pictures of their children, my grands!!
