The scrapbook page, card, and gift bag were all made with the Stampin Up Bag w/Scallops Bigz xl die -- the ideas for the above came from (I tried to put in a link but it did not take me to the correct page so you will have to type in the address) -- -- lots of great ideas and tutorials -- we did the gift bag at the Tuesday workshop and I did the card and scrapbook page as examples of what can be done -- I managed to get my kittys to cooperate (that doesn't happen very often) and they allowed me take some cute photos.

Excuse the background on my flower pots -- I have looked for some plastic easels but no luck so far -- the flower pot on the right is one I made to use as an example for my SU workshop on Tuesday ( some of the ladies from my Scrapbooking group joined our regular workshop group and we had a great time!!) -- the flower pot on the left is one I made from the left over packet from the workshop -- a little bit different -- I did I boo-boo so had to cover it up -- I think I like it better -- gives the flower pot a little more color -- I found the Flower Pot tutorial on -- what a great site!!

I had planned to do a Bear Card using punches for the July SU workshop but the bear and I are not getting along (note to self - don't just print the PDF file - watch the video also!!!) so instead we are going to make the flower pot card above -- my friend, Donna made this one and sent it to me for a RAK -- we are also doing a gift bag with a Sizzix die but it is a long die and I did not realize I needed the extended cutting pads -- so I must send an order off to SU today and will post a photo of the finished bag after I get the needed supplies (2nd note to self -- read the directions!!!)

This is the Father's Day card I made for my husband -- love the background (I watched a video on Stamp TV that showed how to do it -- just love that website!!)

I made this card for my husband for our 43rd wedding anniversary (June 4th) -- I think I found the tutorial on the Scor-Pal site (love that Scor-Pal!!!)

I can't believe it has been so long since I posted -- these cards were made from a kit that Ecstasy Crafts had for sale in May -- it was 3-D but the pieces were punched out instead of cut out -- much easier!!
