A couple of quick cards

Since I see some of you are working with your October kits now, I thought I would share a couple of quick cards that I made last week using some of the remnants of my October Sugar kit. I didn't have a lot left, but I love these papers so much that I wanted to use every last bit. Then of course there is that doily! I had used one on another card, and this one I used as a mask previously. Love them!

Member Monday!

Kristin was scrapping up a storm this weekend. Check out these pages that she created for a couple of the challenges. She used her October kit here - isn't it gorgeous! I love the chevron bottom and that title cluster!
I love the punched circles on this one. Isn't that clever how she embellished each one?!

Happy Wednesday!

Ellen here with a Sugar Kit tip....
With the Holidays quickly approaching, I thought I would share a quick card with you that I created that can hold a gift card.

You can never have too many of these! AND I used the November Sugar kit.
I just made my card an inch bigger along the bottom, used a border punch and then folded it up. 
Use some twin or ribbon to help keep it closed.  EASY!

Here is the inside. I just used some tape to tack down the card. You don't want it falling out the sides ;)

This layout by shykiwi stood out right away because of her use of the photos.

SIX 4x6 photos (trimmed a bit) on one 12x12 layout!
How cool is that?!?!

I also got to work with the fabulous November Spice kit!!! Here is what I made

For this page I cut apart the green paper and pop dotted the border to add some dimension...The cuties are my boys!

I love to fussy cut and for this card I ct the reindeer out of one of the papers....

I also love to make flowers and used the leftovers from my layouts to create the flowers!

LOVE this paper...I added the snowflakes from the kit and a few gems from a previous kit and voila! The sweet baby is my Goddaughter with her grandfather (my brother)

And to wrap it all up I finished with this card!

Using New Stamps

Some of you will be getting this Prima Marketing North Country Stamp in your November Spice Kit.

I thought I would share with you a tip I learned from the talented Tim Holtz. When you use your stamp for the first time, ink it with an archival ink. It doesn't matter what color, just ink it up and stamp it off on some scrap paper. Now your new stamp is primed and ready for whatever inks you want to use on your projects.
