February 21 - Cousins Page

I absolutely LOVE the Simply Scrappin' kits from Stampin' Up!, especially the Happy Day kit. The colors are so FUN and you know me and flowers - mmmmm, mmmmmm! :)

If you want to do quick and easy pages then a Simply Scrappin' kit is definitely the way to go, and at only $19.95 they are a great deal too.

Been quite sick so I have to get to bed (and hopefully the doctor in the morning) but I just wanted to share this quick layout with you before Sunday has come and gone.

Hope you had a fantastic weekend and that your week ahead is wonderful too!

February 20 - Flower Card

We made this card at card night Thursday and I loved it so much that I'm going to use it for the workshops I have in Feb. & March. It is an odd size, but fits just fine in an A2 envelope!

I used the Petal Pizazz stamp set (one of my favorites!) and the new large flower punch in the Occassions mini catalog. I LOVE not having to cut elements out by hand! The background was heat embossed with Irredecent Ice embossing powder on kraft cardstock.

My March calender is filling up quickly but if you'd like to book a workshop please call or email me at and I will get back to you with all of the information! It's a fantastic way to earn a LOT of free Stampin' Up! goodies and have fun with your friends in the process!

February 6 - Hello Butterflies Card

I was going through some of my scrapbook paper tonight while I cleaned my scrap room and came across a piece that I loved. Mostly I loved the circles and the colors and I wanted to try to make my own. All it took was my 1" circle punch and the following colors of cardstock: Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Gable Green, Only Orange and Orchid Opulence and Kraft for the butterflies. The Hello stamp is from the Tiny Tags set in the new Occasions mini catalog as well as the Beautiful Wings Embosslet die. Oh, and my sewing machine - what would I do without the zig zag stitch? :) It took a little longer to make than I had anticipated but I am happy with how it turned out. Hope you're having a great snowy (well at least it is here!) weekend!

If you're on Facebook be sure to become a fan of the Holly Stamps page! :)

My Digital Studio Page - Week 3

Oh no! I'm ashamed to admit that it happened, I fell behind with my digital family album ALREADY! After only 2 weeks - Yikes! :) But I'm not giving up yet and I'm a little more caught up tonight since I managed to get my week 3 page finished. And now that I'm thinking about it - I only have 49 pages to go (UGH!). ha ha!

Hope you are having a fantastic week - enjoy it!
