SCALLOPED TAG TOPPER PUNCH CELEBRATES WITH THE SPIRAL FLOWER ORIGINALS DIE!

I love so many of the new products in the Occasions Mini Catalog, and here are two of my favorites.  "That Michelle" and I made this beautiful tag.  We used lots of new products from the Occasions Mini Catalog, including the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, the Spiral Flower Originals Die, and the sentiment from the Happy Watercolor Stamp Set. Then we added some Sweet Sorbet FREE Designer Series Paper available in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  When you order the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the Happy Watercolor Stamp Set, you can get FREE Designed Series Paper too!

GOTTA LOVE "THAT MICHELLE"

I have been seriously missing my play time with "That Michelle", and finally, today, we were able to get together again.  AND she is still just as talented and "over the top" as always.  Truly love what she does!!
This is such a beautiful little heart candy holder.  The roses were "just scallop circles".  I don't about anyone else, but when I punch a scallop circle, it does not come close to resembling these beautiful flowers.  Thank you so very much, Michelle, I love it!!

CLOCKWORKS!

Sometimes it is very difficult for me to come up with a masculine card.  I think this happens for a lot of reasons, but most specifically for the big reason that I love flowers, butterflies and ribbon~~none of which are masculine!  Having said that, however,  I will confess to having two favorite stamp sets that make it super-duper easy to whip up a masculine card.  One of the stamp sets is Clockworks and the other one is Wetlands.  For this card, I have combined one of the sentiments from Wetlands with the Clockworks Stamp Set.   I think the color combination of Old Olive, Sahara Sand, Basic Gray and Black lends an even more masculine feel to this card.  AND even better is that the sentiment on this card can easily be changed, and the card can be used for many different occasions.  This stamp set also works with four different circle punches to make assembly extra easy.

ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD FILE FOLDER CARD!

Sadly, I am way behind in sharing stuff with you.  I have lots of goodies stacked up and ready to share, so here we go!  This is a card Keri shared at one of our Demo Diva get togethers before the holidays.  I know, SERIOUSLY, way behind in sharing!
