Bitty Birthday, Q & A, and Zoe

First the card:

I had an extra pre-cut criss cross pennant die card.  I forgot how much fun these are!  

The cake is Bitty birthday.  My SU birthday sentiments are on the way so they words are non-SU

Q & A:  I will happily make a tutorial for the scallop envelope box in my "Are you Connected" post.  Stay tuned...

SU makes the scallop envelope die.  Its exclusive to Stampin Up!

Leave a comment here with any other questions or needed tutorials and I will do my best to answer them.

and for those who don't mind a bit of personal stuff....

ZOE:  I am off to pick up my new puppy in a few minutes.  She is a black mini poodle and her name is Zoe.  For those of you who follow me here- Yes, I already have 2 dogs, Lexy and Jake.  they are Standard poodles (the biggest) and they are 60lbs each.  I needed a lap sized little dog and a sweet little poodle came into my life at the right place and the right time.  I will share a few pictures of our day soon.

I will have to keep her away form the SU card stock.....you know I swear its laced with beef.  (wink)

A little rose red DSP, crochet Fleurette and a sponge and markers.  How cute are these.  For the box I used 2 scallop envelope die cuts.  I adhered the edges as far apart as possible so the cards would fit.

Its teacher Appreciation week- these are perfect!!!

Stamps:Note of Thanks Mini note kit,
Paper:  Note cards included in the kit
Ink: markers
Accessories: Brads, scallop oval punch, markers, Fleurette, sponge, scallop envelope die, rose red ribbon

Tutorial: Ribbon cinching

Remember this card? it was in my 5th Avenue floral card kit a while back.   
So many of you have asked me how to do this.  Try it!  

Assemble the entire front panel of the card.  Then, spread the back of the brads and put your ribbon inside.

Fold the one of the brad backs to one side to hold the ribbon.mark with a pencil where you want the brad to be on your card.  then punch it with your crop-a-dile.
Push the Brad through as shown, then separate the brad backs

tuck the ribbon under the panel.  then attach the entire panel to your card base.  

I like this with the wider ribbons.  looks great with rhinestone brads too!  Have fun!!!


Sincere Salutations with Flair class

This is the class I am holding this weekend at my house.  There are several color choices this is the one with the manchester paper.

Unfortunately I am unable to post the box specs. I purchased them from Lauren Meader's timeless templates. they are copyrighted.  I altered her specs to make it work for my supplies and paper.  Even the altered version can only be given to the class participants.  Sorry, its the rules.
