Small Post it note holders

     These small Post it note holders are made in three of the 2014-16 In Colors from Stampin' Up!  They are Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist and Blackberry Bliss.  The sentiment was stamped in the matching colors and with the Label Love stamp set.  The matching pens are from Staples. 

Note pad holders

     These two note pad holders each hold two 3" x 5" note pads.  They also include a matching gel pen from Staples.  The bases for both of them are made from Baked Brown Sugar from Stampin' Up!  The white card stock, stamp sets (except the trees on the green one) and the toppers to close the bags are all from Stampin' Up!  The top one is stamped in Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist classic inks.  The images and sentiment from it are from For All Things stamp set.   The bottom pad is stamped with Mossy Meadow classic ink on Natural White card stock.  The sentiment is from a retired Stampin' Up! stamp set called Occasional Quotes and it says, "We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give".

Another beach card

     This is a Double Dutch fold using Pacific Point card stock for the base, Whisper White card stock for the stamping mats, sand piper stamp from Wetlands stamp set.  The background on the top flap was made by rubbing masking tape on Baked Brown Sugar, Marina Mist and Soft Sky classic inks. All of these products are from Stampin' Up!  The birds were stamped with black Stazon Ink. The sentiment is punched out with the Word Window punch with the mat under it punched out with a Modern Label punch from Stampin' Up!   I had these two beach cards on display at a recent Trade Show.  They can be ordered as is or customized with different sentiment.

Beach birthday card

     This summer my husband and I went to California to help our son and daughter-in-law move to their new home.  While we were there, we spent some time at the beach with them and saw sand pipers for the first time.  I came home inspired to make beach cards!  This one was done with a navy card base and whisper white card stock, turquoise and navy ribbon.  The sand pipers are from the Wetlands stamp set from Stampin' Up!  The sentiment was also from that set.  The tag die cut is from Spellbinders.  The envelope was also stamped with this set in Baked Brown Sugar ink (my favorite).
