Out For a Spin

Good morning stampers!  I still can't believe it's 2010 and that CHA is just a few short weeks away!   I'm really going to try and post at least once a week, but I am MEGA busy. Beate and her sketch team are all busy too, so we are all taking a break until after CHA.

I've been working hard on finishing up our new CHA release and I'm uber excited about it!  I can't wait to show you all what we have coming this year!

January is filled with birthdays!  I have five family members and four friends who all have January birthdays.  I hadn't had a chance to play with this awesome set that came out in our last release called Out For a Spin.  Now, I'm addicted.  How much fun is that bicycle!  Kisa and I will be doing our class at Memories of  Time this Saturday featuring this set.  We'll show you those projects (designed by Kisa) soon.

This card is a Joy Fold, designed by my good friend Valerie Stangle.  Instead of using ribbon for the closure, I used my all time favorite Snap Magnets by Basic Grey! One is hidden under the main image, and the other under that heart.  I LOVE hearing that little snap noise as it magically snaps closed!  They are super thin, and small, so you can hide them under paper, or just about anywhere.  The heart is from a very cool new punch I got made my Fiskers.  Two handles and a little squeeze and it pops right out!  Plus they come in nesting sizes... pretty cool!

You might have to click on the first photo to see it, but the seat is covered in Sparkly Fluff and all the black dots plus the end of the handle bars are covered with my Black Sakura Glaze pen, so they pop up off the page.  I also stamped the birthday sentiment onto a scrap piece of the designer paper and popped it up with a foam dot so it really looks like it's flying. :)
