Never Enough Notecards

Thanks for stopping by today. We have some great notecard sets and holders to share with you. You can never have enough notecards on hand so these are perfect to make for yourself and even better to make and give as gifts. With the Christmas holiday quickly approaching (you know it is), you can get a head start on those handcrafted gifts you want to give.

First up, we have Debbie's purse tote and notecards using the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack. Be sure to check out her blog for more information.

Next we have Rachel's folder type holder that has 8 notecards using the Tmeless Elegance Designer Series Paper (a black and vanilla paper that she added color to). Head on over to her blog for more details.

And here is our guest designer Cindy Blekas' notecard holder featuring the Bohemian Designer Series Paper.  Be sure to stop by her blog to get all the details and see the cards she created for the inside.

As always, thanks for visiting. Come back next week when we share some great masculine card ideas with you.

A Parade of Ribbon

Hello and welcome to another Fabulous Friday post! We are showcasing ribbon this week, it's an inexpensive addition to any project. The best thing about Stampin' Up!'s ribbons is that they are all color coordinated to their inks and paper.

You really see that with Debbie's card, her 1 1/4" Bermuda Bay Striped Grosgrain Ribbon matches perfectly with the rest of her card. Click here for directions on creating her card.

Rachel's project uses 3/8" Basic Black Ribbon for the handles on her cute little gift bag. She used another ribbon on her bag-- can you spot it? Here is a link to her blog.

Lastly, here is Karla's project. She used the new InColor ribbon 1" Delightful Dijon Dotted Lace Trim. You can go to her blog to take a look at it close up.

Thank-you for dropping by today and checking us out and, have a happy Friday!

Some New In Colors

One of the best things of the new catalog is the new in colors. There's always a lot of anticipation while waiting to see them unveiled.  The colors this year are yummy sounding. See below on the bookmark, they will be listed in name order. 

First up, is Debbie's card that uses several of the colors. A very pretty card to let someone know you are thinking about them. Check out her blog here for more information.
This is Karla's card that she created for the InColor challenge. Here is a link to her blog to help you create one of your own.

The next card is made by Rachel and it uses two of the new in colors. This card is great to make a set of notecards for a teacher. Start working on them now so you are ready with back to school gifts.

Here's a bookmark Rachel made that uses all of the new in-colors. The "h" is cucumber crush, the "e" is delightful dijon, the first "l" is watermelon wonder, the second "l" is tip top taupe, and the "o" is mint macaron.

Enjoy creating with the new colors. You're going to love mixing them with all of the other great colors we have.

Thanks for stopping by,
Debbie, Karla & Rachel
