Triple whammmmmmmmmy post...






                        

                                 Happy June 1st!  Sorry I have been missing in action lately...with the end of the school year comes soo many activities....sigh.  My baby is graduating 8TH GRADE!!!!!!  SAY IT AIN'T SO!  Also he is doing summer basketball , which means a lot of too and fro.  SHUTTLE SERVICE ANYONE?  I simply can't think straight for the time being.    Besides Summer looming right around the corner...the first of June means a fun challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon!  The first challenge of the month is a "flower" theme....which of course makes me happy!  I focused on old fashion roses using several different images that had the nostalgic bloom on them.  I am back to my old tricks of using a manilla folder.  I love how sturdy they are and they simply make a great base for all the bits and bobs I always have to add.    I used several lovely ribbons from RRR .  On the front I layered both the pink velvet and the Estelle lace together. I also used the pink velvet on some of the tags to pull everything together.  For my bows on the pocket...which I always like really full.. I used the pink wrinkle ribbon in the 1/2 inch size.   All the tags are tied with pink twine and topped off with pink seambinding which I had to mess with a little bit...like always and wrinkle it up and distress it with some ink.   Make sure to check the RRR site for more inspiration from the other ladies and we would love to have you join the challenge!  Remember there is a prize!  Ok in other news.....







        I am sooooo jacked to share that I am guesting this month over at Wplus9stamps!  I love love their stamps and dies.  I had so much fun getting to play along this month.  Today is the kick off to the new releases that will be ready to buy on June 5th.  Today we get to share "Fresh Picked" and  the matching dies.  I HEART this set so much!  Perfect for Summer.   I may have fudged a bit and used something from another set...but hopefully it is all good!  The flower you see is also made from another die set that it yet to be shared...I decided to make a mini pocket using my strawberry patch die and stitched up the sides...decorated it with a cute handmade bloom and tag..and a little this and that. The inside I stamped a bunch of mini tags to be used on gifts or whatever and tucked them into a mini glassine envelope decorated with one of the strawberries from the set.  I also made mini cards for fun with the strawberry with one of the sweet sentiments and the leaf stamp.  It makes it so easy because they have  matching dies....easy peasy to create!  Well hope you enjoy my take on the new set!  Check out the other girls from the design team and their fab creations!
