A Muse Studio:

You're Invited!

This card looks fairly CAS, but I used four different stamp sets, two different embossing powders, and four different papers. This is a fun way to use up scraps. I started by embossing the circles from Clever Girls in A Muse Studio's fabulous white ep. Then I switched to onyx ep and embossed two of the flowers from that set. The large flower is from Charming Gardeners. The "you're invited" sentiment is from Hey Cupcake.

Stamps: A Muse Studio-Charming Gardeners, Clever Girls, Hey Cupcake
Paper: A Muse Studio- Sage, Fern, Cherry Polka Dot, Ocean
Ink: A Muse Studio-  Versafine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: A Muse Studio- Sky Stitched Grograin, Onyx & White Embossing Powder

Still packing...

 In between every move I completely forget how long it takes to pack. Will it never end? Luckily, as I get older, I get better at maintaining my sense of peace, even when there is a moving van snafu.
 I made these last week, back when I had time to stamp. Those were the days...
 I still love to get my Artistic Outpost stamps out every now and then. They are wonderful.
 Another acetate overlay card. I've made several of these lately.
This is a CASE from my Stretch Your Stamps class. I should say here whose design it was, but I honestly don't remember-great stamper, though!

Hope you are all having a great summer!!

Fun little gift box...

Have you ever thought of starting your own stamping business? Maybe you just want an excuse to get out with the girls more often. Maybe your stamping wish list is longer than your wallet can handle and you just want a discount. Or maybe, you crave a career change, like me. I've done the first two, now I've moved into wanting to run a successful business of my own. I want to work with and support a team of women as we all work towards our goals. I want to help other women reach their potential and step past fears and insecurities that are holding them back. I want to be the kind of leader that helps every woman have the kind of business she wants, whether as a hobby consultant or a business woman.

Right now, the A Muse Studio Holiday Hoopla Starter Kit is only $99. You'll get hundreds of dollars of product, plus ANY free stamp set of your choice. Is there any reason why you couldn't give this a try for a few weeks to see if it's something you'd like to do? I'll be here to support you every step of the way!

A Muse Studio has these things for consultants called Ready To Roll Workshops. You can just check the pdf and copy the projects, which is super easy because all supplies and instructions for creating the item are right there. You can even buy samples already made, and the supplies all bundled together. It's an incredible time saver!

Anyway, this box template is from a RTRW. It looks nothing like the original and uses none of the same supplies, but the box is fun, fast and easy to make and can be made to suit any occasion. I went crazy with dies on this one and used flower set 1, banner die, and the cupcake companion die set. a|s carries a lovely selection of top quality felt and packs of buttons bursting at the seams.

If you'd like to learn how to make this box, just let me know! I'd be happy to do a Paper Party for you and your friends!
