Video Tutorials by Beate & Becca, Samples by Lisa & Green Challenge

Hi Everyone, here's a card to remind you of warm summer days ahead!  

Beate Johns from Splitcoast designed this wonderful little tri-fold card and she gives step by step instructions HERE on her video showing how she created it using our Seaside Clear Art Stamp Set. She's is so talented but she really does make it look easy.

How about this exquisite card Beate created with our Floral Art stamp set! Details HERE

A wonderful bow can add the perfect finishing touch to so many projects and Becca (the queen of bow tying) recently built a very cool little tool that allows you to easily tie beautiful bows and she shows you HERE in this video exactly how she made this pretty double bow to accent this image from our Little Blessings Scraps. She has so many great helpful tips and tutorials on her site! 

Look at this pretty card Becca made using our Cupcake Party Stamp Set. Details HERE

Design Team Alumni member Lisa Zappa is probably the fastest card maker I know. Once she gets in the zone there is no stopping the girl! Here are just 6 of the 10 cards she sent me recently. I will post the others soon but look at how fun these are!  She used our Little Boy Stamp Set to create 3 of them, including this awesome one where she stamped and cut out the kite and added some string for the little boy to fly it. 

On this card Lisa stamped the same boy but gave him blonde hair and stamped the toys to fill his wagon and the airplane for him to fly. I love the bright fun papers and Copic Markers she  used.

Lisa stamped the other boy on this card with the puppy and ball and used the grass, flower and frog stamps from the set to create the scene.

She used 2 images and one of the fun sentiments from our new Farm Fresh Creative Scraps on this card, inking and stitching around the edges of the mini sheet music background to add some rustic charm.

On this card Lisa used one of the big images, a sentiment and one of the faux milk caps from the Farm Fresh Scraps. Love how the bits of raffia look like straw straight off the farm.

The only stamp Lisa colored on these cards was the rooster which has the B&W checkered frame frame. The black zig zag border she sewed and checker border stamped across the bottom ties it all together.  

Now I want to tell you about the fun 'Make a Wish - Green Challenge' that Lori Lynn Washburn is hosting over at Splitcoast this week. You can get the details HERE and join in and post a sample using any of our products with some green. Check out the wonderful samples others have started posting in the Gallery HERE.   

I forgot to tell you we had a great show in Victoria on Vancouver Island on the weekend and thankfully we had no problem finding help. A big thanks to Marilyn Mclldoon and Lane Mikoda for their help and to all the fabulous new and past customers for your support!

Our next show is Creating Keepsakes in Portland, OR March 25 & 26/11

Wishing you joy & creativity
