Be Square....

I am finally back from seminar and I have LOTS of fun things to share! It was a really fun weekend with lots of projects, fun and creativity! One of the new sets we were able to get out hands on was my FAVORITE set in the catty! How lucky am I? It is called "Be Square" and it features 5 different adorable owls and 3 sentiments! (I will show more later for sure!) So here is my first card using this set......

The sentiment is from the new set called "Sunday Stroll". I used Kraft cardstock and TAC's Brown Cardstock. The faux stitching is with Tombow White Gel Pen! Sure adds a fun little touch!

And one more bit of news for all my customers! We no longer have "GWP's" (Gift With Purchase), we have "PWP's" (Purchase With Purchase)! These new stamps are larger in size and can be purchased for $2.95 with every $30 purchase! Here is an example of one of the new stamps! I am loving it!!
Wanted to share one more picture with you! Here are me and some of my favorite people! Left to Right, my WOSFF, Barb Foster, Sarah Gilreath, Amy Kolling and me! This was one picture out of LOTS that actually came out. My camera did not work so well in the dark! I traveled to seminar with Jen Carter and am still trying to "fix" some of the pictures of her and I!

Anyway, let me know if you are interested in a new catalog! They are $4.95. Email me or call and I can save one for you!

Stay tuned this week for more fun projects using the new stamps!

TAC Mini Blog Hop Day3

Ok! Last day of our TAC Inspiration Blook Blog Hop!

It has been fun to share just a few of the new sets that will be featured in the new catalog! The first card uses another of the Angels in the set from yesterday! (I will edit as soon as I get the catalog!) I just love all three angels that come in this set, along with all the senitments!

This card is definitly different than my usual. But I really like this "tree" stamp that I turned into a flourish! This set is called Flourish Trees of Hope! There are serveral trees in this set along with several words....Pray, Love, Hope, Discover, Imagine, Explore and Dream!

New TAC Inspiration Book Mini Blog Hop-Day1

Here we are the first full day of The Angel Company Seminar! I just wanted to hop on here and share my swap with you! It is nothing fancy but it does use 2 of the new sets. In fact they are SO new that I can't even find the names to one of the sets. SO, when I do, I will get back on here and edit this post! The postage stamp set is called Friendship stamps! It includes 3 other images that are really cute!

I used TAC's Olive Cardstock, White Ultrasmooth and Lily Anna White Grosgrain ribbon. I also added a few touches with my Scor-Pal and Scor-Bug! I had to mark the occasion by using our Seminar set as well!

Here is my "roomie gift"! I just made simple mini-pizza boxes and then stamped one of the new images on the top! Nice and simple since I am running out of time! I added a little bag of cookies inside!

Barb, Melisa and I are going to be sharing some sets with you over the next few days! Stay tuned for more new Angel Company sets!!

Don't forget to check out their blogs too!

A quick card.....

Just a quick post today! I made another card using one of Dawn's color combos. If you follow my blog you can tell it is a favorite! (I think I have made several with this combo!)

This just uses TAC's Ordinary Greetings and an old GWP stamp! It made the cutest background!

That's all for today! Thanks for looking!


Cutie Patootie Robots!

Recently, my super WOSFF (Web-O-Sphere Friend Foever) Barb and I exchanged some stamped images! She sent me some adorable new robots! So I had to make a card for her. I have to say I really like these guys!

I totally "borrowed" the wire idea from Barb! You can see her adorable card HERE!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a great weekend!


Paper Wings Color Combo

I am the host for the Color Combo over on Paper Wings. Many of you have asked where these challenges take place, so I thought I would post them here as well, so you can play along!

Here are today's colors:

This is the card I made using TAC's Scarlet cardstock, Bazzill Brown and TAC's White Ultrasmooth Cardstock.

I got the inspiration from this card here. I just love the colors! If you are inspired by these colors, whip something up and post a link in a comment or email me so I can see!

Also, you can still order from this current catalog until June 25th! HERE is the discontinued list! All stamps on the list are 25% off!!

Here is a quick sample using 2 of the June sets! I used the cloud in Punk Princess to make the tree and the adorable little bird is from "whooo"! The birds in this set are so cute!!

This is a gate fold card I made using the simple guides on the scor-pal. I love the colors! Bright and summery!

Thanks for looking! Call or email me to place an order! Don't let those discontinued sets get by! :)


Father's Day Blog Hop

Father's Day is pretty close here so if you are needing some last minute gift or card ideas, this is the place to be! Some Angel friends and I are having a Father's Day Blog Hop!

Check out my Father's Day card....sorry Dad! You will see it in person very soon! :)

I used TAC's Script Background on the Aspen cardstock. The paper I used is the Willoughby Collection from The Angel Company. I was so happy to see that one of the tags that comes with the set, fit perfectly as a "tie"! How cute is that? And then a sentiment from Tag Tidbits!

I made this shirt using my Scor-Pal. So fun and easy! I got the directions from my Scor-Pal group. Go HERE to learn how to make your own "shirt" card!

Heather's Sketch

Just a quick post today using Heather's Sketch!

Super simple, super fast! I love these colors. If you are a follower of my blog, you know I can't get away from red and kraft! Throw some brown in there and I am a happy camper! :)

This would make a good "love you" card or just about anything! Without the sentiment, it makes it kinda universal!

Thanks for stopping by today!


9 Years of Wedded Bliss....

June 3rd was my 9 year Anniversary! My husband gave me a fantastic gift card to Hobby Lobby, as well as a night away from the kids, with dinner and shopping! So, I had to make him a card! I realized that in all my stamps, I don't have any anniversary sentiments. So, I picked TAC's You Are. I think it fits pretty well!

I think I did an ok job of making this "somewhat" masculine card! He liked it!

The background is TAC's Script Background stamp. I just love that stamp!

I told myself again to be careful with the ribbon! I know I use it on EVERY card. Of course, this one couldn't have a bow but I did sneak some brown grosgrain on there! :)

Thanks for looking!


Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #8!

Time for another fun color challenge! I love the colors Dawn picked out this time! That chair looks super comfy doesn't it?

I made two cards for the challenge. Here is the first...

This card uses 2 Angel Company sets. One is a Level A Hostess Set from the Magalogue called Floral Labels. The second is a Stamp of the Month.....that I can't find the name of right now so I will get back with you! :)

Can you see the embossing? I used Versamark to stamp the image and then clear embossing powder so I could stick with the "brown" in the color challenge! I was really happy with how it turned out!

Here is the second card! Same exact stamps and paper, different layout! This time I had to use my ruffle I came up with for the Scor-Pal Blog Hop! I think it adds alot to a card!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a great weekend!


Stamps: TAC Floral Labels

Paper: TAC Kraft, Brown Bazzill, TAC ASpen

Ink: Burnt Umber Palette

Misc: Bright Pink Flower-Paper Studio, Brown Button-PTI, Brown Ribbon

The set comes with the word "tweeeeeeeet" but I cut the eeeeeee's off to and made tweet! I thought it was kinda cute! :)

TACâ„¢ Promos

Anyway, to grap one of these sets, email me at llwillison@hotmail.com and I can get a June order in for you!


A little addition to the "leaf" how to....

I am sure somebody has made a flower like this before but I just figured out! Ok, maybe I am a little slow! If not and this is new to you, come join in my excitement! I do have a Cricut and I can cut out many styles of flowers that way, but I always want to stay true to my Marvy's! So with a little inspiration from my "leaf" how to and from Julie's "Dahlia" flower, I came up with this.

Basically do just the same thing for the flower as the leaf from the other day! I punched out 5 circles and the punched each into 2 leaf or petal shapes.

Here, I just took ink and a sponge to give color to the edges of each petal.

I skipped a step in pictures but all I did was punch out a small pink circle and attached all of the petals to the back. Once they were glued down I took a bamboo skewer and curled the petals under. This is just a picture of how I did that. You can see the finished flower off to the right.

And here complete with leaves! I used the pink Mega Marvy Circle punch for the leaves on this one. The petals are made from the blue Jumbo Marvy.

I also attached another small circle with a pop dot. I ran that circle through the CB using the Swiss Dot Embossing Folder for some added dimension.

For the tag on the card I cut out a white scalloped square and stamped the sentiment on the bottom.

I used my Scor-Pal to fold the tag in half!

Here is the finished card! (Complete with crooked stitching!)
This really was a "challenge" card for me. I use ribbon on EVERYTHING!!! I put a big ole' bow on every card I make and I just had to try one without! This card is completely made out of cardstock. No embellishments. Just completely handmade! :)

Thanks for coming by today! Hope you have a great day!
