Welcome to the May 15-16 Blog Tour. We are so glad you have decided to join us for this inspirational tour of the Spring Summer Idea Book and Catalog. I hope you will sit back, grab ya a cup of Joe, and enjoy! The set I will feature today is “Cheep Talk”. The set is new to the line and coordinates with several complimentary stamp sets. The entire set and pricing are as follows:

Cheep Talk 

I just love birds. Sitting at my kitchen table with a warm cup of Joe and watching the birds at the feeders in the mornings is just grand. They are such delicate creatures and so enjoyable to watch. The birds in this set are the cutest. By adding a flower in her hair, I created a his and her bird set. May and June have more anniversaries than any other months for me. This one was created to fill this need. This first card also follows the MOJO86 sketch. Hope you enjoy.

Together Forever

My second project is another card using the lovely bloom in the set. The inspiration for this card came from the bright yellow flowers blooming in my neighbors yard. I can see them from my breakfast room window while enjoying coffee and watching the birds. The sentiment was added using the Bright Delights Rub-Ons directly to the ribbon. Didn’t that work just great?

 My favorite flower is a bright yellow daisy. This bloom reminds me of them. The little corduroy button fit perfectly in the center. Isn’t it just “cute as a button”? The card follows the MOJO82 sketch.

The final project is in honor of National Scrapbooking month. Don’t forget the Stampin’ Up special this month on designer paper. When you purchase 3 packs, your fourth one is free.

My family and several couples went on a camping trip this past fall. We went to Black Mountain and had a great time. Rob was our official photographer and gave each family a cd of all the pictures he captured on the trip. I decided it was time to do something with all of the lovely pictures. I also had a pattern someone shared with me for a flip book I had been itching to try out. I married the two and this is the result!

It turned out magnificantly. This set works great for scrapbooking any type of outdoor pictures. The bright Good Morning Sunshine Designer Paper pairs with it in grand style. See me tomorrow and I will share how I put this together. Hope you enjoy this one and will try it out for yourself.

This is the outside front cover…

Flip Book Cover

This is a view from above of the book partially open. There are 7-9 pages available for decorating. I was able to put over 25 pictures in this one book.

This is a close up shot of the first page of the book. The “Petal Pizazz” stamp set works well with Cheep Talk, and compliments it wonderfully. The letters were cut with the Big Shot using Billboard.

This is the back side of the first flip out page.

The birds were so cute singing over each set of pictures. The limb is awesome. It can be used from the right or left direction and the birds perch upon it either way. The following is a shot of the second fold out page.

Hope you enjoyed this great project. It would be a neat idea for a stamp class. The possibilities are endless. I can see it as a brag book for a new mother or grandmother, graduation gift filled with pictures of all their school days photos, or maybe a special trip or summer vacation book to share with friends. Just let your imagination run wild!

    I’m getting off and staying off at this stop! LOL! I’m totally inspired! The fact that “Cheep Talk” is my favorite stamp set might have a little to do with it. I just love that darling anniversary card. How sweet! That flip book is so awesome! I’m so terrible at scrapbooking. I think it’s because my organization drives me nuts. I have to have every event in order. If I could take just one event and make a gift like this…let’s say for my sister-in-laws wedding in October, then I might actually finish something. I can’t wait to see how you did this! I’m so glad you joined this tour. Your creations are one of a kind!

  2. What an inspiration – love your work! Loved this set, got this set, haven’t used this set much = now I’m excited to get it out. TFS
