Yes, the Keller house is exciting with gymanstics drama (good drama), dentist drama (not so good drama!), and just plain loving all around!! And of course, we craft through it all!!!
Ohhh I'm excited to show you our stamp club projects from last week!! And I have some Paper LOs to show off also!!
Let's get started!!
Our first project uses Stampin' Pastels and Blender Pens. We embossed the outline stamp from Bloomin' Beautiful (111490 – $25.95 – on pg 87 of the spring/summer catalog!), then colored it with pastels using our blender pens! Awesome technique!!
Our second card used bleach…yup, just household bleach (clorox to be exact) on a paper towel set inside a small stamp box. We just used it like a stamp pad. We learned while doing it that your bleach has to be fresh for it to remove the color from your cardstock!! Neat technique!! This card uses the "Good Friend" set (113740 – $28.95) on page 93 of our catalog! Love those little birdies!
Our last card was just a fun card using the companion set to Good Friend called "Cheep Talk" (113204 $26.95) on page 92 of the catty! We also used the small oval punch to make the little vase! Love that. The technique we learned was inking up chipboard. Easy, fun and very coordinating! 🙂
After everyone left for the evening and I was cleaning up, I grabbed some of the leftover supplies and created some other cards using this color scheme and stamps and chipboard. Love these samples:
Now, in our stamp club, I was the hostess for February and I got some really neat fun FREE stuff!! We all LOVE free stuff. I want to show you one of the things I got for FREE!! Did I mention it was FREE??? I got the Circle Cutter…it is FABULOUS!!! I did this fun LO using Emma's stamp set she ordered in Feb called Just Jawing (111660 $25.95) page 71 in the catty!
and here's the LO…it's about Quentin's qualifying Pommel Horse routine at his State Championship Meet!
I also used that FABULOUS coordinating paper called Rockabilly Specialty paper. You gotta get this!!! Check out my web site to order any of these products I've mentioned!! Sally's Stampin Site!
Here's a sneak peek at what you will see next week on my trendy tuesday spot!
is that not the cutest??? I can't wait to dress it up using the Big Shot and some FABULOUS new Designer Series Papers from Stampin Up! yay!!!! Be sure and sign up for my wonderful newsletter (on the right) and put me on your blogroll to get blog update notification! yay!!
So, to leave you today, I'm gonna show off two LOs I did today just using my stash. This is a marvelous way to save money and get all inspired in your craft space. I grabbed some photos that had been laying around for a while on my desk and I grabbed some paper that I hadn't used in a while (Basic Grey paper) and I actually dug down into my embellishment drawer (that i hadn't looked at in a while!! yikes!!!!) and created!! It was mighty therapeutic and wonderfully mojo-inspiring!! yay!! I hope you like these LOs as much as I did creating them. The second one has two pics of Quentin…one from July of 2000 and one from today. I love this boy…
(thanks, Maggie, for the flowers!! 🙂 )

…and one last note…Pray for me on Friday…I'm having oral surgery…an implant. It will be fine, but it never hurts to ask for extra prayer!! LOL!! 🙂 Happy Stamping!!!!
