Today's feature is Confetti Wishes - the go-to paper pack for celebrations of all kinds. This is a pretty straight-forward card using just one stamp, A Little Gift. I stamped it on the white base piece and then once on the back of the patterned paper (the stamp has quite a bit of detail that I didn't want to show) and once on canary cardstock (just to get that little strip in the middle!). Then I cut the pieces out and glued them to the white base pieces. Top it off with some of the green and blue epoxy bubbles and it's done. Super simple!
Sweet Salutations and the embellishment is a Durables triangle stud. Quick and easy :)
Here's an up close look at the patterns in this pack. Bright and fun, you can mix and match with other paper packs to get the most use out of every inch!
Last on the list, is the Confetti Wishes PDQ workshop. Here are the layouts. This workshop is being held on Monday, October 13. Class size is limited so reserve your spot early. Class fee of $20 is due no later than September 15th.

Today I'm showcasing the Chalk It Up paper pack. Sure, it's great for all those school themed occasions but there's so much more you can do with this paper! Take this card, for example:
I noticed the words Nice and Epic and decided to go with a thank you card. The sentiment is actually two stamps that I thought complemented each other, You Mean The World To Me and Shooting Star. A touch of Teal Shimmer Trim and a little star from the Scaredy Cat assortment and voila! Don't let a theme limit you! Here's a picture of all the patterns in this pack.
Most of these patterns have limitless possibilities! Mix and match with other paper packs (yes, that is not only allowed but highly encouraged!).
Finally, here are two layouts that I'm offering as a PDQ Workshop (pretty darn quick). With different layouts than the kit in the idea book, this one is ideal for scrappers who want to save even more money and time! There is no stamping involved at all. For only $20 you will receive a half pack of Chalk It Up paper, one coordinating Complements, one coordinating Assortment of embellishments and a handy cutting guide. You keep whatever is left over! Bring your favorite adhesive. If you'd like to create these, let me know!

If you aren't able to make it to my house to see everything in person, here are a few pictures of it all! These display boards showcase all nine new paper packs in the Annual Inspirations idea book. I'll be posting each one by itself in the upcoming days. There's still time to stop by so give me a call!

Ack! I do this to myself every time - plan an event and then have so many ideas that I want to incorporate that I don't know where to begin. Does this happen to you? My open houses are coming up quickly and I'm busy getting everything ready. I know I can't display EVERYthing in the new idea book but that doesn't mean I don't want to. New paper kits, new color lines, new stamps, new accessories, new...oh, you get the idea! I sure hope a lot of friends drop by. Okay, back to creating. I just had to share my excitement with someone.
