Here is one of the projects we did at the crop I attended last Saturday there are no pictures in it. Was fun to put together. The paper is not Stampin'Up! Actually the Vanilla, and Old Olive are. The book uses several dies and the Round Tab punch. It was quite easy to put together especially when it was all pre cut and scored, so it fit perfectly.
At the crop we had one class included in the registration fee and we could pay for any others we wanted to do if there were enough sure glad I purchased this one..

As I mentioned the other day I went to a fund raiser crop for a fellow demonstrator who's house had burnt down.. Had a very good time managed to get three months done on four calenders. I make them every year and give one to each of the kids.
The water bottle here with the Crystal Light and the little triangle box were in our goodies packets. Aren't they cute. The holder is done with the Friendly Words roller (114696). The small laugh stamp I think is a retired one I don't own that. The pink box uses the big shot and die Flower Daises #2 (114520) isn't it cute. I will post some more of what we did in the next few days.
It was absolutely a beautiful day today, I managed to get all my flowers planted and even made a rhubarb pie. Til next time.

This is a cute card that my sister showed me about five years ago. It uses a retired set but the idea is fun. The grad hat is adorable tassel and all. I remember doing it at stamp club and the girls loved it, looked all over town to get tassels I think most finally went to the city and found them there.
I promise to get back to current stamps but sometimes it is nice to use the ones we love and that is why we bought them... thanks for looking
