Here are this month's projects.  I must say that I absolutely LOVE both of them and I'm sure you will too!  This month, they are both quite easy compared to last month.

Do you like that little tag?  Momma printed out a nice card idea and noticed the tag.  It's familiar to our punch, but shorter!!???  I'll show you how to do this (okay, not all that tricky – but very cool!).

Stampin Up's new firm foam stamp pad has an added benefit: you can emboss with this ink – IF you act quick.  The new ink is a bit thicker and stickier than the old ink.  Oh, SU recommends not mixing the new ink with the old pads (or the other way around) as the new ink has a new formulation.  This month, I'll have these inks right next to the embossing powder so you can get that clear powder on quick!

I hope you don't get tired of vintagy/neutral/bling type cards!!!  I can't get enough of them!!!  This card does have a hint of pink on it.  Guess where the inspiration came from???  A set of tins from Michaels!  At my going away party, Janice gave me the cutest gift… a great purse/container thingy with a metal latch and silky rope handles that said bling all over it!  The set of tins match this Bling theme.  I was looking for color themes and zero-ed in on one of the tins in the set.  This card and that tin are BFFs!

Ahhh… the hardware!!!  Doesn't that 'make' this project???  You'll find the frame (and stamp set) in the new mini catalog.
