Lovin' Clear alphabet sets

As National Scrapbooking month is winding down
I decided to make a couple of scrapbook pages to share with you.

I used 2 of the stamp sets that Stampin' Up! has on sale for
30% off until Tuesday May 31th.
I used the Word play set ($20.27/ clear) 
and Sweet Shoppe Alphabet Lower(16.77/ clear).

This is what I am lovin' about clear alphabet sets, 
you can put your letters all on one block, line them up
and stamp everything at one time.

These photos were taken when Brad was 4 and Emily was 8 months,
it's really hard to believe it was 24 years ago.

I will place my last order for the 30% off select stamp sets,
on Tuesday in the evening.  Email or call me with your order
so you don't miss these great buys.

Thanks for looking, Cindy

Best Deal of the 30%off Sale

Stampin' Up! has 6 stamp sets on sale this month for 30% off to 
celebrate National Scrapbook Month.
I think the best deal of the 6 sets is the stamp set Word Play.
The clear stamp set is priced this month at $20.27.
This set includes 12 large stamps, they are so big you receive them in 2 cases.
These stamps are great to highlight a scrapbook page with that special message,
or add to your next card.
A beautiful card for a June Wedding.
This message will be great in any graduation card, or scrapbook page.
Maybe this is the card you will need to send to a friend in June.

When the current Stampin' Up! catalog come out last July
this was the 1st set I purchased now you can get this set at 30% off,
what a DEAL!!!!
Contact me to order your set before May 31st when the set goes back to it's regular price.

This summer I will be posting a few pictures from my garden,
my 1st picture is my White Peony's, when they are in bloom
you know its getting close to Memorial Day.

Scrapbook page My Digital Studio style

This scrapbook page was made using My Digital Studio by Stampin' Up!

I love to make scrapbook pages, most of the time I have a great idea but
by the time I round up all the supplies I need,
I get distracted and my page never gets finished.
That is why you will love My Digital Studio (MDS) as much as I do.
This page was from a pre-designed template that took me a total of 5 minutes to make.
I only had to add a picture stored in a file on my computer
and in my journal box the date of the wedding.
Brad, Lauren and Emily were perfect for this page.

May 2011 Technique class cards

Floating Reinkers Technique
This card was cased form Gretchen Barron, I was so inspired 
with her card I made a couple changes to mine and wanted to share it with you.
When you come to class this month you can choose
to make your flowers in Elegant Eggplant or Poppy Parade.
You will have a hard time not getting addicted to making
more and more flowers after learning this fun technique.
We will be using the new Fabulous Florets stamp set, 
shimmery white card stock, black embossing powder, 
water and reinkers to make our flowers.

Fun Flowers
We will use our Big Shot Fun Flowers die to make this card
along with the Elegant Soiree Designer Series paper, Baja Breeze
seam binding and a antique brad in the center of our flower.
I love this combination of Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla
  and Soft Suede cardstock, I hope you will also.

We will be making these cards at both
the Bodacious Babes Card Club, and Technique Thursday classes
at either 11am or 6pm. You won't want to miss making these 
beautiful cards so RSVP so I have enough supplies ready.

Thanks for looking, Cindy
