Shirt and Tie for Dad

I love this Elegant Soiree designer paper, the stripes seemed perfect for an Oxford style shirt. Baja Breeze cardstock and ink with gold brads and one non SU star brad to use as the tie tack. All other supplies are Stampin' Up.
This card was easy to do with a standard A2 size card. Score across the top down 1". Make a mark in at 3/4" on each side on score lines and at top fold at 1". Score from the 3/4" mark to the 1" mark on both sides and fold over toward center to create collar. Add a tie for a more formal look :)

On My Mind

All supplies are Stampin' Up. I used markers on the Upsy Daisy image, Paisley Petals designer paper, Soft Suede and Whisper White cardstocks, half pearls, and Baja Breeze taffeta ribbon. I love this ribbon for it's ease of tying bows and knots. I hope that they will carry a lot more colors in the new catalog!

Friends 24-7

This combines the color challenge (Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, and Perfect Plum) and the Mojo Monday sketch. Most supplies are Stampin' Up, designer paper is Carol Wilson Fine Arts. Stamp set is Friends 24-7.

Live, Laugh, and Love

For today's CAS sketch I used all Stampin' Up supplies. The base is White, then Apricot with the French Filigree in matching ink. White Swiss Dots embossed over that. Fifth Avenue Floral with On Your Birthday sentiment stamp sets.

Round Red Roses

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
I missed VSN at Splitcoast since we were gone for a little mini holiday. I did manage this one which called for 3 R's in your project. I used Riding Hood Red, roses, and a round shape. You could add retired too since I used the Sweet Nothing scrapbook kit for the paper, sticker, and sentiment. The roses are from Both Way Blossoms, a stamp I had never used before. All supplies are Stampin' Up.

Charming Simple Delights

All supplies are Stampin' Up: Charming flower with Simple Delights flourished emblem. Paper is new Paisley Petals with Soft Suede and Very Vanilla, taffeta ribbon and half pearls. For the flower I used Cajun Craze, Olive, and Soft Suede markers and the edges were inked with Groovy Guava.

I also wanted to share my shabby chic project with you that I did for my new stamp room. The wood divider/organizer was a super cheap Goodwill find that I painted an ivory color and added some pretty porcelain knobs to.

New Stamp Room

Pretty soon I will be back to posting every day! My stamp room is finally finished and I may never leave it. The color is so warm and delicious, it reminds me of a Creamsicle. Billy picked out the color, he has a wonderful eye for colors and design. The shelves were painted from the original pine to this color called Snowdrift. Now is my perfect opportunity to get everything organized exactly how I want it. And try to keep it that way!

All supplies except for white cotton thread are Stampin' Up. Paisley Print and Springtime Vintage designer paper with Baja Breeze and Soft Suede cardstocks. Perfect Punches for sentiment and half pearls to embellish. Punches used were scallop oval and scallop border. Layout is Mojo Monday #189.
