I have had some pages partially done and I finally got to finish them! I had inspiration from my NEW Serif Essentials Alphabet dies for the Big shot. I am going to get so much use out of these! It was well worth the investment. The rest of the pages were made using the Tailor Made Simply Scrappin' Kit which is retiring. Be sure to order it now! You only have until June 30th to take advantage of the retiring products. Many are even discounted. Don't miss out! Click HERE to shop my online store.

Here is my creation for this week's UDI inspiration challenge. This was a really hard one for me. I don't have any of the monkey stamps so I was looking at my new Greenhouse Gala DSP (available July 1st!) and thought of jungle. Well, monkeys live in the jungle so I went with that. I used my Punched Posies hostess level 2 stamp set and punched out the flowers. We have a lot of anniversaries coming up so I added that as my sentiment. Be sure to check out what the other UDI team members came up with this week.
Stamps: Punched Posies (hostess level 2 set), Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Greenhouse Gala DSP, Whisper white, Baja Breeze,, Certainly Celery
Other: Paper Piercing tool, Mat Pack, Chocolate Chip 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Certainly Celery 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Fancy Flower punch, Word Window punch, Large Oval punch

Father's Day is tomorrow and this is the card I came up with. This was also a club project in June. I have seen these cards but I wanted to make one that would fit in a standard invitation size envelope. I used the measuring tape from Totally Tool to make the "d" and the "a" is from Jumble Alphabet. I used the retiring Close to Cocoa and Ruby Red card stocks.
MEASUREMENTS: Take a 5 1/2" x 12" sheet of card stock. Fold it in half at 6". Then score in from each side 4 1/4". Make a "W" with it and add sticky strip along the back bottom holding it together. Use the Word Window punch to punch out a space on the inside that is large enough to hold a gift card.
HAVE A WONDERFUL FATHER'S DAY TOMORROW!

Sarah Anthony for sharing her tutorial so freely. I used a different DSP and so different colors but the ideas are all hers. I used the Island Oasis DSP and the colors that coordinate like So Saffron, Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise and Old Olive.

This is a class I am holding tonight. I saw this great idea made by Sarah Anthony. She was very kind and shared her very detailed tutorial with me. I love it when such creative people share so freely. I chose to use Island Oasis DSP and the coordinating colors. I have some customers that can't wait to make this tonight. For our class, we are also making 4 birthday cards, also from Sarah Anthony, to fit inside the box. This would make a great gift or a great storage box for those birthday cards. I will be showcasing the cards the rest of the week.

I know I have not been keeping up with my blog like I planned, and for that I apologize. Life the past two months has been much busier than expected and I have been using the time normally used to set up my blog on other business endeavors. I am going to work on getting back on track because my life is beginning to slow down again. I have many pictures that have been taken and lots to share with you. I just need to get it all set up to post. Check back on Monday because I WILL be posting normally next week! Thank you for continuing to support my blog.

This Thursday snuck up on me. We had some crazy weather yesterday afternoon and we may have experienced a mini tornado in our backyard. Shutters were pulled off our house, a cedar tree split in our backyard and a large tree was completely uprooted. There seems to be a path of uprooted trees through our neighborhood.
Anyway, back to the UDI inspiration challenge. I tried to do a more modern take on ice cream with this challenge.
