Hi,  I'm super excited about the new catalog and decided to stay up late so I could show you some fun projects.  But, before I show the pictures, please make sure you read the post below.  It has all the details on ordering from the new catalog (on line orders are unavailable from now until noon on Monday, Mountain Time….my Stampin' Up! website will also be down until noon).

The first picture is of the Good Friend Stationery Box we made at Leadership….I love those birds… both the stamp set and the Chipboard!!  It's the Good Friend stamp set and the Chipboard is So Tweet. (cute name too!)

Next is the card that we made to go in the box…..again I totally love it…but maybe it's just me & birds :)  Wait until you see the owl 🙂

Good Friend Card 

I'll be honest, I've not had the best relationship with the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  But… it works great with this stamp set.  If you're like me….I've had a hard time remembering how to use it.  But, this stamp set is perfect for the Stamp-a-ma-jig and now that I've got it….I won't be forgetting how to use it!! 

I'm so excited I need to do a video….but I need to come up with my own card first. 

Moving right along….after I assembled my Good Friend Stationery BoxI decided to tweak the measurements and find a way to make the box using one sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock.  I made one using solid cardstock and one using Designer paper (I'll show you the designer paper one later this week).  I also made it a little thicker so I could add some candy 🙂

Owl Stationery Box   Sorry, my picture doesn't do it justice…by the time I was finished it was dark outside & I need to take another picture to show you the side view…I'll do that later today. 

And, I forgot to show you the candy inside. I usedmy favorite "Ferrero Rocher".  This will make you laugh….that's my favorite chocolate candy…but I'm clueless on how to say the name :)))

I'm working on the video and will post it tomorrow (Tuesday)…..if all goes well. I have to take Chase to the doctor and have some tests run….he has an ankle that keeps hurting him, we thought it was growing pains (the doctor agreed) but now it's getting worse and waking him up at night.  I'm a little freaked out!!

Thanks for stopping by….have a great day!!

P.S.  I loaded 116 photos in the Leadership Display Boards photo album…you can find it on the right side of this blog….enjoy!!

p.s.s Stamp Club is tonight for my Monday night group 🙂
