Open Sea Calendar

This was my travel week for my real job so I didn’t get to do much stamping. I miss stamping while I’m on the road.

I worked on this last night in my Open Stamp class. I actually changed it around from the one I did last night – so if you were here last night, you’ll see how much different it came out –  and this one came out so much better.  Enjoy!

Post it Note holders & a cute little frame for a baby.  I’m a little disappointed SU doesn’t have any baby DSP this year. I’ll have to use last years paper for these projects.

New owl from the Owl Occasions stamp set in the Holiday Mini.

Love the new Dots DSP!!!

My baby is too old for this cute frame 😦

Just got back from a quick vacation to the Big Apple. Did all the touristy things there was to do. Now I just want to stamp! It’s fun going away on vacation, but I miss my stamps 😦

This is a quick and easy card to do if you need something fast! The new stamp pads work awesome on it. I bit the bullet and bought all new ink pads. They were worth the investment!

Happy Fourth of July!
