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.

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!!!
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.
Check out the other versions HERE. These were so much fun to make- And what a great gifts. I made another version with Urban garden paper too. FUN!!!
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.

I am attending a Team meeting tomorrow for Stampin Up! Its about 100 Su Demonstrators from the area. So much fun! I volunteered to be a display stamper- I got to make a bunch of projects for the display boards featuring flower Brads. this is a 6x6 scrap page.
all supplies are Stampin Up!

Paper: Baja Breeze, Rose red card stock and designer prints paper, whisper white
Ink: Kiwi kiss, rose red
Accessories: 1/2" circle punch, curly label, scallop circle and photo corners punches. Rose red wide double stitched 1" ribbon, Flower Brads and dimensionals
To get the ribbon medallion you need to sew the ribbon on. punch holes around the punch out and sew the taffeta on with the large needle from the crafters tool kit. I hate to admit that I made that medallion over a year ago, and just now made it into a card. (sigh)
Here is another card I made with the flower from Cheap talk.
