I'm so bad …..remember last winter going into Spring …when my computer crashed twice …and I had to stop blogging for a while …. well when I got the new laptop I didn't re install My Digital Studio…and to really really honest … I couldn't Find the disc… Well … since my creative re-organization of my craft room … I found it … So that will be today project …..but in the mean time …I thought I would show you some of the great Halloween downloads , that have come out recently …..
Are they not the greatest …..I'm defiantly purchasing Piece of Poison Download …all my stamp set that say Trick or treat have retired ….and with the download I can make Hybrid cards …..
Ok tomorrow I will giving you the details of the Christmas Extravaganza stamp Camp on November 5th …..
See you tomorrow
I have a treat for you ….If you live in the Georgia Coastal Low Land area….. On November 5th, I am having a Holiday stamp camp …..I'm still working on the details ….and next week some time I will have it ALL for you …..but today I thought I would share a sneak peek …of my favorite project….. a Tri-Flip-Fold scrapbook…..
I love Morning Mocha Designer Series Paper…..I also love how this album has a Christmas feel without screaming Christmas…..perfect for gift giving…….
are you ready to see a sneak peek of some of the page layouts?…….
In this Holiday Extravaganza…..everything will be cut and scored for you….with a packet of direction with Photos of every layout …..and there are 14 layouts…..and notice …there isn't any bling … you will get your own set of bling …..to do or place where ever YOU want…..I will have a sample of this book with bling at the camp …for those who would rather not have to think…..I like to give every one their choice of personalization ….
So be on the look out for more pictures of different projects and the other good stuff …..
It's Saturday…that means I will be getting my Silly on today…and I have the perfect stamp set for this …It's called Not So Serious…..and I will be playing with this set this weekend…
Here the first card I made just playing around …
I have to admit, I'm not quite finished with this card….It still needs a little bling …..but I'm making it for a very special friend and sister demo …and I want her to be surprised when she sees it …..
All I did was stamp the images in Stazon Black, and used my Stampin' Write Markers and an Aqua Painter to color in …. the best part of this stamp set is …you don't need to be perfect…..and it gave me the freedom to make all the cute little mutts …any color I wanted …..
If you would like me to teach you this super duper easy way to water color … let me know and I will set up a class …..
Have a great weekend everybody …don't forget to get your silly on …..see you Monday
I'm still embossing …and the stamp set Charming, is so Perfect for this ….it has to be one of my favorite sets…
It is truly simple easy peasy card…..I used Basic Black and daffodil Delight Card Stock…….I embossed the Black layers with just versa Mark and Clear Embossing Powder…
For the focal point layer , the background is again just Versa Mark and Clear Embossing Powder…the Flowers are Black Craft Ink and clear Embossing Powder…..
Designer Jewel Rhinestones of course…and to be completely Honest …I didn't have and Daffodil Delight Ribbon….I used the Very Vanilla 1/8 Taffeta Ribbon and used my Daffodil Delight Stamp Pad to Color the Ribbon to Match.. It the coolest that you can Die Stampin Up Ribbon If you need to ….
That's it …put your layers together and your done …..I love that the card is clean and simple and very elegant, but still has a soft almost whimsical side too …
i will be at the Hinesville Farmer's Market Today, so come by and visit …I will be also be Accepting payments for classes …..

Now to make
Last Sunday was my 18th wedding anniversary to my very sweet prince of a husband …and to celebrate 18 years ….. I made a little Scrap page …that will eventually get framed …..
Are you ready to see me in a picture? I know …..Me showing pictures of myself is very rare…..
I know pretty scary…..I look at the photo from 1993, taken 3 days before we got married and it was taken by his stepmother ….who I just met with his father about an hour before the picture was taken …..anyway… I look at that picture and think … Who in the World are those kids…and are they old enough to get married? lol…..
I used the Notable Ornate Stamp Set ….. and the Size of the page is new to me at 8 x 8, but Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, were the main colors …with some Pretty in Pink accents… Some victoria lace and Baja breeze seem binding ribbon …just for fun …..and of course it wouldn't be me …if I didn't have pearls and rhinestones… Even with all the girly stuff … my husband loves the page …and it was his idea to frame it …..
Here is just a quick look at a card I design using Mr. Snail , from button buddies… this card was a reject for the FREE CLASS I'm Having on August 23 and 24th …..
He didn't quite make the cut … he is cute, but I wanted something a bit more for the class… He won't be forgotten, he will find a new life as my August Workshop Make and Take….. I have a few dates open of August so If you would like to Meet Mr Snail and have a great time with all your friends making your own Mr. Snail …..Contact me Today to set up your workshop…It's easy…to have a workshop …and I'll even make it easier by doing it in MY HOME… no cleaning for you …..
All you have to do is get started is email me at Sherry@sherrystampinbella.com , and I will get you on your way to a fun night of stamping, friends and free Stampin Up Products…..what are you waiting for ?
Happy Friday….another week done, and time to get the weekend started …
Today is the last day of my Button Buddies Stamp Set series… are you ready?
What a challenge this was… the baby rattle image… As you know … I'm not a baby person …my kids are 17 & 15, and I'll take teenagers over babies any day….
This 3 x 3 note card, is pretty much me just coping the sample picture out of the catalog ….See the catalog does have reproducible samples in it …the colors are Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade, and of course the button with Baker's twine that I colored with Lucky Limeade…
This one, I used the same gender neutral colors, and was thinking sort of a bouquet of rattles. I punched out the top of the Lucky Limeade rattle top …wrapped the ribbon, and added the button at the bottom,
Again So Simple …Even me, the non baby person could create a cute little note card ….. Whew… I made it …done with the baby ones,…. Moving on…
The little pumpkin is just so cute…. and perfect for all those fall events …What I really like is the image is perfect for not only cards but all sort of projects…what I mean is … I love, love love Halloween, it has to be one of my favorite holidays ….. but in today's world, schools are switching to "Fall Harvest" and on Halloween dressing as your favorite Book character….. ok whatever…..But the little Pumpkin fits into both of those themes ….. very cheerful and cute…..
So this little guy here, I left him plain, and it really worked for me….. So I left him floating …he is so easy that your kids could even stamp their fall thank you notes or party invitations themselves with this little pumpkin…
This one would be fun to make with your kids…This time, I stamped the little guy and wrap a ribbon around, to kinda make it look like he was sitting on a wall… stamped the image again, on different piece of Whisper White Card stock and punched out the pumpkin part out and used a dimensional, to pop him up on the wall … and of course used two small buttons in the corner…..
fun or what ?….
Check this bookmark out ….. perfect for School …I just stamped the pumpkin in a line…but so not perfect, I wanted to give the feeling of happy little pumpkins reading their way through a good book …..
I have to say … this series was a challenge… I can't remember if I ever made a collection of card using EVERY image in the set….Whew .. I did it…
THANK YOU, … for all the wonderful comment and emails, I read each and everyone and try to respond …the comments and emails mean so very much to me …I really can't thank you enough…
Since I had such a positive response to my Button Buddies, I have decided to offer a FREE CLASS using this stamp set….Actually two class times to choose from …

So What are you waiting for ?Email Me Now at Sherry@sherrystampinbella.com, and reserve your spot in this exciting new club …
I'm still loving the 2011 In Color Combo Island Indigo and Pool Party…Can ya tell? I've been working on my August Workshop samples and projects for those who attend to make. and experience the fun of rubber stamping and card making ….
These 3×3 note/gift cards feature the New stamp set Button Buddies, this set is so cute, and just like the name implies every image in the stamp set coordinates with Stampin' Up Buttons…
I made the cards in stages… I went from Simple to over the top.
This is the very simple card …just the flower image in Daffodil Delight punched out and layered over the New In Color Ruffled Ribbon in Island Indio…it so cute just like that …
this little gem, I took up just one notch…Changed the Base layer to Island Indigo but left the matting in Pool Party…and the greeting this time I stamp on Whisper White and punched it out…
This little baby….. FULL BLING…..
went back to Pool Party as a base card layer, and added the Island Indigo layer…..
I added a button from the brights collection of buttons and tied it with the new Baker's twine…because you can't have naked buttons.
I again punched the greeting out but this time I added a punched layer of matting and popped it up with dimensionals …Of course it wouldn't be full Bling if I didn't add a Designer Jewel Rhinestone …..
Now, I want to share with you the cost of making these cards… and why….
it seems that the economy has hurt everybody in one way or another…and with cell phone and internet there is a loss of personal contact…..I really think that getting back to friends and family in a more meaningful way will kill two birds with one stone…..How?….. Making Hand made cards and either snail mailing them or giving in person is less costly and they person who received the card has a physical, in hand reminder of you…and that is priceless…a text,email, or even a quick cell call can't have those long lasting feelings…..
I hear all the time I can't afford to make my own cards and the price of the cards in the store are $3.00 and up….. Let me tell you the First card I showed you… the very basic card… cost me 25 CENTS and that does include an envelope…..and the Last Card I showed you …. the full blinged out card is only $1 including the envelope…..
Now you are going to tell me the start up for this would be too much … well no …in the grand scheme of things …for you personally maybe….But what if I told you… I could get you started for under $50.(if you don't have anything) and keep you going for $25 per month .. for 6 months, and learn how to make this investment work for you, to include all your Christmas and Holiday Cards, Thank You cards for your Holiday Gifts…..and even a few Christmas presents …..would you consider it ? What If I added 2 hours a month that you could learn and create these projects in a Child FREE, grown up atmosphere…..and a few things to Surprise and Delight You…..Sounds Good …..Doesn't it?…
Well …..Tomorrow I will show you just that …. I will be announcing my Royal Stamping on a Not so Royal budget Club …….. I'm so excited to be able to offer this to you …I can't hardly wait till tomorrow …I will tell you that the First Meeting of this Club will be in August ….
So if you are interested email me at SHerry@Sherrystampinbella.com and I will add you to the club….
See you tomorrow I can't wait….
It was so great visiting with all of you at the Hinesville Farmer's Market yesterday, making some new friends too… I'm telling you… yesterday was a blast, I can't remember the last time I had that much fun at Farmer's Market …

Look at this baby…..I used the new In Color Calypso Coral…and the Paisley Petals DSP.
First of the Sun was not working with me when I took the photo
Don't recognize that paper from the pack … It's the middle section of a piece that has a large flower print around the outside…I really liked the Herring Bone pattern and couldn't wasting it …
The Flowery two tone paper behind the sentiment, that is the other side of the paper…The stamp set, is Perfect Words…I have to say that is becoming one of my favorite sentiment stamp sets
Of course you know me, I just love adding pearls …It's very hard for me not to put a pearl on a card …
Wow this is a long Post today….
So remember … my Classes fill Quickly, so sign up today…Or If you are interested in joining the Hostess Club … All you have to do is email me at Sherry@herrystampinbella.com ….and I will do the rest …
Have a great weekend !!!!!
I told you I was working on water coloring…well here it is ….Super,super simple and will be my workshop card for the Month of July …
Isn't it sweet …..and fast as well …..I left off a sentiment on purpose…because I couldn't decide if I wanted the card to be a thank or sympathy or what …this card lends it self to just about everything. The base of the card is Concord Crush and our fantastic water color paper… and of course the punch, which for the life of me at the moment, I can't think of the name …and if you look close …there are even a few pearls in there. The stamp Set is On the Grow from the Summer Mini Catty.
If you think you can't water color … you are wrong …with water color crayons and a blender pen you can create this and all sorts of beautiful water colors …..let me show you how….. I have classes and clubs just for this sort of thing …..
All you have to do is contact me and you are on your way
See you tomorrow …
Here is another super fast card….Featuring Stampin Up Designer series paper Springtime Vintage….
Doesn't this card just remind you of the perfect Sunday Morning Cup of coffee…..I used the Stamp set Morning Cup….I also water colored the coffee cup Images…..Would you like to learn how to watercolor ? Think you couldn't do That? ….. next week I will be Posting my Spring classes and I will have a complete series on all the ways you can watercolor …..or at least give the illusion of water coloring …..
