Bloomin' Bouquet Project Kit

Available while supplies last, the Bloomin' Bouquet Project Kit comes with the petals, stems and buttons to create a baker's dozen of these adorable flowers. Check it out in my store at www.shoppingwithbarb.com

Paper_Flower-30

Mother’s Day. Teacher appreciation. Just because. Say thank you with this no-maintenance bouquet. There’s no watering, no weeding—just enjoying. This easy-to-assemble kit comes complete with the petals, stems, and buttons to create the flowers, as well as four different tags to make this the perfect gift for any occasion. All you need is some paper, ribbon, or a vase to add the finishing touches to the bouquet.
 
As if that weren’t enough, the kit contains a “baker’s dozen”! This means you can create and give (or keep) a dozen flowers, and have a bonus flower left over to pass along to someone new! Give it to someone you wouldn’t normally think of: a teller at the bank, a grocery store clerk, or the librarian at your local library. Anyone you encounter on your way that you’d like to give a little “thank you” to—and introduce them to Stampin’ Up!

VIDEO - Book Card

Going through some old projects, I came upon this card.  Does anyone remember Groovy Guava!! 

Bookcardold
It was part of a class I held a few years ago.  I loved the basic construction of the card so I recreated it using my current supplies and will mail them out in May as my Green Card for April orders. Green Cards are my thank you cards for those placing Online orders with me.  The card isn't green, but you can reuse it.

More with the Bombs Away Birthday Photopolymer Set

Yesterday, I announced the second photopolymer set from Stampin' Up!.  It is called Bombs Away Birthday (see and order it HERE) and it includes some really fun sentiments.

Bombsaway

Today, I wanted to share another project from Dave, a concept artist with Stampn' Up!  He came up with a way to give an iTunes card and I love it!!

He wrapped an old cassette tape with a belly band.  Dating myself here but I have this cassette tape!!!  I was a huge Wham and George Michael fan in my younger days.

Cassette1

He slipped the iTunes card inside....Clever!!!

Cassette-2

He also included a second stamped card inside...fun, fun, fun!
