Still Catching Up: Nurses Week

Yes, that's how far behind I am! National Nurses Week: May 6th to 12th :) Although I work in the healthcare industry we don't have very many nurses at our facility, so for nurses week, we kind of dropped the ball and celebrated a week later! LOL Anyway,  I was "volun-told" to make Nurses Day cards. Of course I was happy to, I have a great appreciation for all the hard work that nurses do. So many of my family members are nurses and I'm SO thankful for them! They never cease to amaze me!

We have a total of 4 nurses at our facility, I made each of them a card for the staff to sign. If you notice, all the cards are the same, but all different at the same time! :)

Also, if you like any of the patterned paper that I used, they are only available while supplies last on my online store. We'll be making room for the new Designer Series Paper packs that are going to be released on July 1st! Click here to visit my online store :)

Catching Up

Hi Everyone,

It's been a while since I've posted any pictures of the cards/projects that I've made recently. Life has been pretty hectic, but I'm hoping to get a start on building up my inventory or cards and other items. I'm super excited that Stampin' Up! will be releasing their new catalog last month, but it also means that I need to use up my Designer Series Paper that will be retiring at the end of the month! :)

Here are some cards that I made from Mother's Day (Yes, that how far behind I am! Don't worry, I gave it to them on time!) I have fallen in love with the color Rose Red, so you'll be seeing it in a lot of upcoming cards :) I used the Mother of Mine stamp, Sweet Summer (Sale-A-Bration set), and a hostess set from the Occasions Mini called Something to Celebrate. ENJOY! :)

Administrative Professionals Week

Good Evening Everyone! :)

Sorry it's been so long since my last post. So many things have happened since then! I've been doing a lot of wedding planing :) and I had my VERY first Stampin' Up! workshop. I was so exciting, I can't wait to have another one. Also, I am going to be starting a "craft club" of some sort where once a month or so people can come over and make projects that I would prepare. It would be $15 for materials or you can recieve the materials for FREE if you place a minimum order of $20 :) Please let me know if you're interested, we can even take turns "hosting" so that we all get a chance to recieve hostess benefits! :)

Other Stampin' Up! news, the Occasions Mini catalog is officially over, but the new Summer Mini catalog is out! Check it out on my website along with the promotions for National Scrapbooking Month! Stampin' Up! has some awesome stamp sets 30% off. Check it out here: www.regalcrafts.stampinup.net

LAST week was Administrative Professionals Week. I truly believe that the organizations we work for would crumble without all the administrative support that is provided. At the place where I work, we have an AMAZING admin, without her, I don't even know how we would function! I made her a little card and a post-it holder that also has a holder for a mini pen. Thanks to all the Administrative Professionals out there for all that you do!!

THIS week is  Nurse's Weeks, I still need to make something for that... Not really sure what to make yet though. Whatever it is, I better hurry before it's over!

Have a good night!

1am Birthday Card

Good "Morning" Everyone!

I'm SO sleepy but I really wanted to post this before I forget again. I made this birthday card for my Aunt last week. I couldn't figure out what to make so it was taking me forever to put together a card. I finally put a card together around 1am! Needless to say, I was a little sleepy, so don't look to closely because I don't think anything I put on this card is straight! lol I think I'll try this same layout again, but this time when I'm not so tired.
I used Whisper White for the card and ribbon. The card base is Pear Pizzaza. The top strip is Elegant Eggplant cardstock, and the one that runs perpendicular to it is from the DSP Lap of Luzury. The stamp is from the set called Engraved Greetings.
I'm so excited for my first workshop this Saturday. My upline will be doing a demonstration and a quick card. Then I'm going to take over with my own card. I'm so excited that I already got all my stuff prepped for my card :)

Anyway, tomorrow is going to be a busy day, so I better get some rest. Good night everyone! :)

Bright Colors

Good Evening Everyone!

On Friday I mailed out a card for my fiance's mom's birthday (her birthday was yesterday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!). I had the hardest time making this card, though! I was on the phone with my fiance trying to get his input on what to make, but he fell asleep!!! All I got form him was that his mom likes bright colors. So I figured hot pink was safe! haha :) Here is the card I made for her:

I designed this card around the color Melon Mambo :) I LOVE this color!
This whole card is made from Stampin' Up! products, that's why everything coordinates. I used Whisper White for the card, it's a regular A2 size card. For the base I used paper from the Designer Series Ice Cream Parlor, I used Melon Mambo cardstock for the next level, then Whisper White again for the center piece. I used a stamp from the Valentine Defined stamp set on the Whisper White then sponged on some Pear Pizzazz ink on the bottom. Finally, I used the wish big stamp from the Short & Sweet stamp set, and some embossing powder and my heat gun to make it shine :)

If you haven't already done so, please leave a comment, become a follower, and RSVP for my FIRST workshop on April 23. Please check my Stampin' Up! website for more information :) regalcrafts.stampinup.net

I hope you all enjoyed the card!

Have a good night! :)
