Stamp Club February- Rose Garden Scrapbook Page

Good morning everyone! We had a wonderful time last night at Stamp Club! I am in LOVE with this month's scrapbook page! I seem to really struggle with scrapbook pages lately... I don't know why because it is my first love when it comes to paper crafting! I'm out of practice and I need to get back to it!

This month's page features the beautiful Rose Garden thinlit. 
I wanted to do something Valentine related, but not Valentine specific. So, I went with my favorite color combo- Melon Mambo and Basic Black! 


We used the Wink of Stella Brush and the Happy Patterns mask to add a little sparkle to the back ground. Then, we added the Melon Mambo to some Timeless Elegance DSP and tried it out. Isn't it FUN!!?? The black and vanilla striped DSP adds a modern feel the page. 

And when you are part of my Stamp Club, you get to choose if you want to make the Scrapbook page or an alternate card version. I know not every one is a scrapbooker, so I came up with an alternate choice for this project. Still the same products and look, just in a card version!


Here they are together!

Now normally, I show you all three project we make in one post. But, I have a video to go with our 3D project and it's not done yet, so that will come Monday. And our card is part of a new Class to Go, and it will get it's own post too, so come back next week!!


So all my  Stamp Club To Go members are receiving all three projects in the mail next week. If you are interested in joining us in March, I can put you on my waiting list. If I get enough to form a new group, we will start on March 1st! 
If you are interested in joining my Stamp Club To Go, you can read all the details here.

Tissue Slider (Video Tutorial)

I recently saw a commercial on TV showing a cue little tissue gift you could order for a friend. I thought it was brilliant! But, it was ugly... LOL! So, you know I had to come up with one that was WAY cuter! 

The outside looks like this...

And then you slide it open and it looks like this. You can write your message on the inside part. We've got LOTS of sniffles here in South Texas right now. This would be perfect!!


And then, I thought about a friend who recently lost her mother. I was thinking how I just couldn't find the words to tell her how I was feeling and didn't want to upset her more. So I said nothing. Ugh! So, what if I just wrote her a little note and put it on a pack of tissues? 

The sentiment says it all. I think it's a very thought full gift (if I do say so myself! Ha!) 

So, not hard at all, and I think I will make some up and keep them around. I am going to the Post office today and am going to see how much they would cost to ship. 

So, check out the video and make some yourself!

Bear Hugs Tea Gift


I just can't get enough of the Ber Hugs Bundle! Those two little bears are so fun to play with. I also have had fun playing with the Honey Pot image. It really lends itself to cute gift ideas. 


I made this tag to attach to a Honey Stick and a tea stick. This makes a fun and quick gift to give to a friend. I thought it would be good for someone who wasn't feeling well! And it was quick and easy! 

If you like this project, don't forget about my Bear Hugs Class to Go! The deadline is quickly approaching!
