Flowers, Flowers, Flowers

  Spring, the time of year when all the flowers are beginning to bloom everywhere around you. So bright and fresh and you just want to be outside to enjoy them. We thought we would share some great stamped and paper flowers with you today in the spirit of all blooming flowers.



  This is Rachel Yurkanin's card using the botanical garden framelits to make her card. Black and white and a pop of pink. Check out her blog for more information.


  Debbie created this CASE'd birthday card with matching stamped gift box featuring the retiring Summer Silhouettes stamp set and Hello Honey In Color that is perfect for adding a small gift (jewelry maybe?!).  Please hop over to her blog post here for more details about this project.



  And last but not least is this great card designed by Karla Anders which also features a retiring stamp set - Vivid Vases.  Be sure to visit her blog post here to get more information about her card.

We hope you are able to get outside this weekend and enjoy some of the beauty around you.

Thanks for stopping by,

Today the Sisters In Stamping wanted to share projects featuring items from the Weekly Deals promotion and Clearance Rack products.  Whether you've just had to cough up some bucks to ol' Uncle Sam, or getting a tax refund, it's a great time to check out what's on sale!



Debbie Naylor used Clearance Rack products to create an awesome dry-erase board with Into the Woods Designer Series Paper and embellished the frame with a fabric flower she built using the Flower Frenzy Bigz L die.  The Bigz dies are great for cutting images using alternative materials or bulk cardstock with your Big Shot.  Visit Debbie’s blog here to learn more.


Rachel Yurkanin used the Baker’s Box Thinlits Dies from the Weekly Deals promotion to make this super cute birthday favor box.  Read more about this brightly colored box on Rachel’s blog here.


I used the Stars Framlits Dies from the Weekly Deals for this fun birthday card.  I also pulled a few embellishments from the Clearance Rack using the 2013-2015 In Color Sequin Assortment and some Lost Lagoon ribbon.  Head over to my blog here for more details!


Thanks so much for dropping by for a visit on this Fabulous Friday!  Be sure to contact your demonstrator and check out all the great sales going on, especially those on the Weekly Deals since they will be going away for good on April 18th.  Have a fantastic weekend!

Coffee and Tea - Perfect for Any Occasion

Welcome back to another Fabulous Friday!  We are heading into allergy and flu weather, so tea is a must in helping you feel better.  But regardless of how I'm feeling, nothing beats my first cup of joe every morning!  Whatever the reason or occasion, there is always room for coffee or tea!  Let's see what our designers came up with for their coffee or tea inspired projects.



First up is Guest Designer, Cindy Blekas, with this simply beautiful birthday card - what great colors!  Visit her blog post here to see the products you'll need to recreate this project.



Rachel Yurkanin's cup is overflowing with love!  This little pick me up is filled with a cup of soup, tea, cough drops, hand sanitizer, and tissues.




I brought in a K-cup carrier made from a single piece of cardstock.  This makes such an easy gift for coworkers or teachers!  Check out my blog post here to learn how to make your own. 



This Tea-rific card by Karla Anders (visit her blog here) uses stamp set A Nice Cuppa and the matching dies.  Beautiful!



Debbie Naylor created this set of coordinating K-Cup favors - super cute!  Be sure to hop over to her blog post here for more information about her design.

We hope you enjoy this week's project inspiration.  Just as a reminder, time is running out for Sale-a-bration.  If you still haven't gotten everything on your wish list, contact your demonstrator and make sure you don't miss out on this amazing opportunity!
