TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS
Another quick post to share another sample I made for the Display Boards.
I used the set Honeycomb Hello along with Kinda Eclectic (butterflies) to decorate the mushroom box.
I used Neutrals and Subtles dsp stack for the mushroom, and fringe scissors to make the grass going around.
It's way past bed time, so I am keeping it short.
Tomorrow night I will announce new class by mail. I have posted a sneak peek on my facebook page

It's still Monday, right? It's 11.43pm....
This will be just a quick post (it's been busy day like every other Monday), but I still wanted to share.
I made this page for the Display Boards at Convention using the Seasonally Scattered stamp set and I added the "You" from Work of Art set. I used the Project life dies to cut the journaling cards, as well as the pictures and the "title"
If you follow me on facebook I have been posting some sneak peeks there, I still need to take decent pictures to share them on my blog :)
Hope you like it.
And in meantime I am preparing new class by mail.

Welcome to another Creation Station blog hop.This week we feature the Kinda Eclectic stamp set. This is one of my favorite stamp sets from the main catalog. It has so many possibilities.
I have 2 projects for you today. First is a 3-d letter A box, that I made for my daughter Anna. But it can be perfect as a teacher's gift, as well to decorate your and your child's desk.
The second is a simple card that I made. I stamped the images on Very Vanilla card stock and immediately I embossed with Clear embossing powder.
Well....that's all I have for you today, but there is more inspiration right around the corner - head to the next blog by Kathy Kartak. Or put it in reverse to see Jen's creations for this week.

Happy Saturday. It's been busy day here and I am already falling asleep. LoL.
Anyway...today I have another display sample to share with you. For this simple card I used the Seasonally Scattered set that I embossed in gold, and then I adhered to some gold printed vellum and added individual sequins from the gold sequin trim.
Pretty simple, yet effective :)

I had a lot of requests from people that are not in the US and who couldn't get the class by mail, so I made the instructions and templates available for this class by mail.
The cost is $6 and you will receive: video instructions (links to the videos), list of supplies and dimensions, templates, and additional instructions. (note: the last part of the video is wonky, as it's made using my phone(my camera battery died) so I provided you with additional picture instructions on how to put the box together.
You can purchase it using the Add to card button, once you check out you will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your download.
Do you want to get this file for free? If you place an order $25+ (before shipping and tax) by Sunday August 17th using the hostess code CYFKCKXW you will receive this file for free. ( SHOP HERE)
Thank you so much for your interest.

Today I have another sample to share that I made for the Display Boards. This one uses bunch of Project Life goodies: The PL Calendar set, Point and Click set, The Everyday main kit plus the accessory kit. Then used the SOmething to say set and the scalloped tag topper punch to make the tag.
I really love how it came out.
Not really a PL person, the PL kits make great addition for your cards, trust me! I LOVE them.

I am slowly getting back into regular routine, after the party and then prepping for over 25 kits for the Kinda Eclectic class.
Today I have another Display Sample to share with you that I made using the Kinda Eclectic set, along with Dictionary background stamp ( I absolutely love this stamp, I misplaced my original one, so I had to order new one immediately, that's how much I love it).
I used versamark and gold ep for the butterflies, the dictionary stamp and some of the background, along with Encore gold ink pad.
Hope you like the page

It's been crazy week in our house, as we prepared for my baby's 1st birthday party which was today. So no creativity was going on in the stamping department. We are finally unwinding now and I decided to do a quick share. This is a card I made for the Display boards for Convention. I used Work of art set and stamped one image at a time using versamark ink, then embossed it with embossing powder, for the next image I used different color and so on. At the end I decorated with some cotton ribbon and rhinestones that I colored using my Blendabilities markers.
Thanks for stopping by!

Today I have a simple card for you. I used the new alphabet thinlits to cut out the falling letters, as well as Hello sentiment. Then added some sequins and Hip notes set for the "YOU".
So, sweet and simple for Wednesday.
Come back tomorrow for more eye candy :)

I didn't post yesterday, so I am posting two cards today.
Yesterday was kinda hectic, it was my baby's 1st birthday, though we didn't have the party yesterday, it was still crazy day. As well my mom is in town to help me prepare for Milena's birthday party, so I was busy spending time with her, too.
Now, onto the cards. Both cards are colored with the new blendabilities markers. I love them. The first card uses 3 stamp sets: Dictionary, Blended Bloom and Forever Florals. And the second one is hybrid. I printed the flower from the FOrever & Always MDS kit and colored it with my blendabilities, then cut out and adhered to my card. For the sentiment I used Hi There stamp set.
Note: Today is last chance to register for the Kinda Eclectic class by mail. I have extended the registration as some people missed the deadline. I will be placing the supplies order tomorrow and ship the kits on Saturday.
