In Color Sneak Peek

Time for another little sneak peek at one of the NEW In Colors available June 1st!!
I was busy yesterday making cards for a swap I am participating in using new items from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  Those that attended our On Stage event earlier this month were able to pre-order some items so we had time to make some samples to share with you before the catalog is available.
Lemon Lime Twist Swaps
I am really liking this year's In Colors. 
The first card I made is using one of my new favorite colors -- Lemon Lime Twist.
It is such a bright fun color -- it makes me feel HAPPY.

The In Color designer paper has great prints that might look familiar -- they are some of our favorite prints from this year's Floral Boutique paper.
You also see a sneak peek of a new Daisy punch and a fun new embellishment -- Clear Faceted Gems.  I used words from a new stamp set -- Wood Words.

Here's a fun card I saw on display at OnStage.
Lemon Lime Twist No Bones
I love the combination of the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and the No More Bones stamp set.
You get another sneak peek here with another new punch -- Circle Tab -- love it.


Perfect Mix - No One Measures Up

Today's card makes me think of my mom. 
She always has home made goodies for us when we go to my parents house.
She makes me home made noodles (she even makes gluten free ones for me now).
She bakes the best apple pies, brownies & cookies.
The Perfect Mix stamp set is full of fun baking and cooking images and I love the little sayings in the set too.  I like to cut the words from the images to give me other options with the stamps.

Perfect Mix Recipe Tin

Last night we had a fun class.
Everyone received the Perfect Mix stamp set and a Tin from the Sale-a-Bration brochure.
I had stocked up on a few extras knowing that I wanted to do a class like this.
We decorated the tin to be used as a recipe box.
Recipe Tin
Very sweet and simple with some ribbon wrapped around and of course plenty of circle layers to give the tin a pop of color.
We stamped the oven mitt with Melon Mambo stamped off once and the words with Memento ink.  The Stitched Shapes circle framelit added just the right touch.
Recipe Tin Closeup
The tin comes with little file tabs perfect for sorting different recipe categories.
We added the Pop of Pink Washi Tape for a little color to each tab.
Recipe Tin Tabs & Card
I used Thick Whisper White cardstock cut 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" for the recipe cards.
I cut 36 cards for each box and we added 1/2" x 5 1/2" strips of the Pop of Pink designer paper to the bottom of each recipe card. 
Recipe Cards
Then using Melon Mambo and Memento ink we stamped spatulas, eggs, mixing bowl, measuring spoons, oven mitt and mixer on each card.
I stamped Memento on the Melon Mambo designer paper cards and Melon Mambo on the Black designer paper cards.
It was a quick and easy project to do and many of the ladies were using their tins for upcoming birthday and bridal shower gifts.  Wouldn't you like to receive this fabulous gift???

You can use any designer paper and color scheme to create your tin.
Some of my ladies used the Moroccan Nights designer paper, Washi Tape and color scheme.
A couple of others used the Floral Boutique designer paper and Washi Tape.
