Great new bag

I just recieved a new bag from a new company. You can see their website here . I picked the 8 Days a Week bag (see picture). It is very nice. I have my mini catalog in the clear space on the front but you can put pictures or any kind of artwork there as well. Please check them out if you like bags. They have backpacks, bible holders and other things as well.

NSD make and take

Here is the two page 12 X 12 layout that my NSD guests will be making. My husband took the picture and didn't get the importance of showing the whole layout! I have to teach him better... :)
Anyway, I used the stamp set Bloomin' Beautiful and stamped on watercolor paper. Then I colored in the flower and the bee using ink and a Auquapainter.
Stamps: Bloomin' Beautiful
CS: Sky Blue, Chocolate Chip, Watercolor, Wild Wasabi, Afternoon Tea

First Papertrey stamp set

I bought this stamp set from Papertrey Ink to use for thank you cards for my sons baptism. Well, I totally forgot and didn't make the cards. Shame on me. I did try out the set the other day though. I stamped the cross and the saying in Close to Cocoa craft ink and then embossed with clear. The background paper is a discontinued one from Stampin' Up!. I can't remember the name of it.

I will never give up my rubber stamps that are wood mounted but this set was very easy to use. I did really like being able to see exactly where I was stamping. :)

Recipe: Stamps: Everyday Blessings (Papertrey Ink), Ink: Close to Cocoa Craft, CS: Vanilla, Creamy Caramel, Other: Clear Embossing Powder, Ribbon, Tiny crystal.
