Playing catch up...

This is a little embarrassing to admit, but I completely forgot to post last week! I guess life really is what happens while you're making other plans :) I have a few projects to post this week in order to catch up, so it'll be a long post - but definitely worth it! I'm always inspired by the creativity of our divas.

Need a great idea for a birthday card? Check out these adorable cards from Kristine Memmott:

Have I mentioned before how much I love pink and brown? I especially like the popped up pink frosting on the cupcake!

Stamps: Party Hearty and On Your Birthday
Ink: Chocolate Chip and Pretty In Pink
Paper, Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White and Sweet Always DSP
Accessories: Chocoalte Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals and So Saffron and Regal Rose Markers, Scallop Edge Punch

Ok - I love this color combo too! I'll be so sad when this year's In Colors retire.

Stamps: Party Hearty,
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze
Paper: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Baja Breeze Double Striped Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, 1/4 “ circle punch, glue dots, crystal effects

Here's a great card from Brenda Taylor:

I really like the sponged look on the whisper white cardstock - such a great idea Brenda!

Always in my Thoughts stamp set

Bordering Blue, So Saffron & Whisper White card stock

Basic Black & Bordering Blue ink pads

Stampin' Up! Background I & Scallop Note die cuts for big shot

Basic Black ink pad

SU Markers & Sponge

*I sponged the bb onto the white note die cut, to make it less white

And in honor of the last day of Sale-A-Bration (sniff, sniff) here are some cute projects from Alicia Tomicich-Wiley:

Here's what Alicia had to say about her projects:

I absolutely loved the cute purse Becky Roberts created and was so excited when she had a tutorial on her blog (http://inkingidaho.blogspot.com/2009/03/top-note-purse-instructions.html). I've made various ones since then, but this is one we made this month as our club project. Everyone made three of the little 3x3 cards to fit inside. I ended up creating the same thing to give as a hostess gift with a couple extra of the 3x3 cards in it. She absolutely adored it!! Thanks, Becky for another fun project. :)
