I carved my own Undefined swimming stamp back in July, shortly after convention.  I did not really have time to create with it until this week.  Why?? The kids went back to school and I got my "stamp" back on.  And boy do I have some really cute projects to share!!!

so here is the stamp I carved.  If I can do this anyone can do it!!!

and here are 2 quick note cards:

Thankful for you!

The key these thinlits is to put wax paper between the die and the paper on the first cut.  Then there are little holes on the die that you can use your paper piercer to poke out the die cut.  I used a very thin glue pen to glue it down.  

Stamps: A Round Array
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze, Sweater Weather DSP
Ink:Chocolate Chip
Accessories: 7/8" scallop punch, Ribbon border punch, Expressions Thinlits dies

And for the Coaches

Summer Swimming has come to a close-- and I get the month of August off!  The kids do too, but this blog is all about me!

Here is the Gift card holder and oh how I love the lined envelopes.  I used all the different patterns on the inside.  So easy when all the SU dsp coordinates!  Perfect Blend is a great set since on the inside was a pocket and a Dunkin Donuts gift card.  I totally cased this from a card Becky Roberts made.

Then I made a huge batch of Cinnamon almonds to share.  Here is how I packaged them:

Treat pouch using the Pop n Cuts card base:  (score at 5" & 6")

Medium cello bag on the inside:

Have a great day!
