We made three 4-1/4"x5-1/2" cards and three 4"x4" cards.
These two 4x4 cards were my favorites:
Above, the designer paper from this Simply Scrappin' Kit is punched out with teh 1" square punch (pg 183, #124094) and the white cardstock is punched out with the Postage Stamp Punch, (pg 182, #122344).
I can't remember if I've shared this tip... but for the small greeting above, i wanted to give options in the class, so i mounted FOUR small greetings on one clear blog, and each person stamped all four and punched out the ones they wanted to use.
TIP: mount 4 greetings on one block ... not only does this give you options, but it helps keep the block from tipping over with just one small greeting on the block!
Punches used: Word Window (pg 183, #119857) & Modern Label (pg 183 #119849)
One of the retiring accessories from Stampin' Up! this season is the very lovely Tea Time Simply Scrappin' Kit. I enjoyed making some cards with this kit... the card below was for my nephew and his wife who just had a new baby girl..the colors for the shower and baby's room are green and pink, so I thought this was great paper to use. The "family" stamp and the scripture stamp are in retired sets that I've kept. .I thought they went well on this card.

I had a great time playing with my Elegant Trio Stencils. I combined the stencils with the GUEST BOOK Simply Scrappin' Kit to whip up several thank you notes. The GUEST BOOK SS kit has a wedding theme, but you certainly don't have to be making wedding invites or a wedding scapbook to use this amazing kit!

Idea from Shelli Gardner's workshop of a lifetime posts.
The Guest Book kit has Very Vanilla TEXTURED cardstock in it... steciling on textured cardstock comes out really neat:
After sponging thru the stencil with Cherry Coblber ink, I stamped the script stamp from the CHARMING stamp set (item code: 116519) in Basic Gray ink right over the stencil.

Thank you for all your kind comments about this book... I truly wish I had something like this from my mom, which is the reason I really wanted to get this done - to pass on to my son. Someday he'll appreciate it :)
