Designer of the Month



This month I had the honor of being highlighted as Designer of the Month for Clear & Simple Stamps. Here is a link to the article on their blog & I encourage you to sign up for their monthly newsletter that highlights their specials and challenges we hold. I know my friend we are going on vacation with next week will get a kick out of this-he ribs me all he can about my blogging and stamping :-)















I created an ensemble with the new set that was just released yesterday called New Year. I had a New Year's party in mind when creating with this set. The first I created was New Year's invitation in which I highlighted the martini glasses as my focal point and added the Happy New Year and 10.9.8.7 on the bottom so when you open the invite you see this.

Next I created a little table setting card to put out with a cute little phrase by Oprah. I wanted to keep the scheme of all my creations the same for this setting so I used all the same papers and colors.












I created a table piece with the Basket of Thanks template from Clear & Simple Stamps this month. They are a lot of fun to make and can be used for any occasion. I also did a little medicine container filled with some M & M's for people to take with them.

Lastly, a thank you card to send out to all those who attended the party, thanking them for being a part of our lives and for helping to welcome in a New Year with us.

Hope you enjoy my creations today and make sure to check out the Clear & Simple blog for the interview.
