Girlie Girls © Flip Up Book

I made a Circle Flip Up Book from a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers that you can find HERE. I used two stamp sets from the Girlie Girls © line from Clear Artistic Stamps--Bubble Time and Hearts and Lace.

Here is the book unfolded:

And here is the book after it is all folded up:

If you would like to see photos of all of the pages, you can go to my gallery on Splitcoast Stampers by clicking HERE.

Have a good Tuesday!

Thanks Santa!

In my quilting group we did Secret Santa, which was so much fun! My Santa was Betty from TN, who sent me this gorgeous table runner. The hearts are embroidered, each one a different pattern. It's just breathtaking, the photo doesn't do it justice! She also gave me a pretty Bible bookmark. Thank you so much Betty!

Mom's Quilt

My first bed quilt! I've been working on this quilt off and on for about two years now, and just finished it two days ago. I gave it to my Mom for Christmas and she just loved it! The quilt is made of 20 different blocks, all from Quilter's Cache. I used different shades of blue and yellow, along with a white-on-white.

I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas.

We're On Vacation!

If you're wondering why you haven't heard a peep from me this week, it's because we are in Orlando having fun! But, of course, we take our computer everywhere and stay connected.

We are having lots of great "Kodak Moments" down here, it being the holidays and all. I thought I would share a few with you right away.

You'll Love These Stamps!

Here are the two new stamps sets released last night from Clear Artistic Stamps. I think just about everyone knows a "girlie girl" or is one herself!

And there are two great deals involved:

First, if you purchase both sets, you receive a pretty pink gift bag.

Second, Clear Artistic Stamps is offering FREE SHIPPING for the month of December!

Have fun girlie girls!

Finders Keepers!

If you've been following the story on In The Cottage Studio, you know that Belinda has some new paintings that she has made into stamps--and they are being released Tuesday! The stamps are part of the new Girlie Girls © collection, and you can tell by the name that they are really cute.

And now you're wondering, "Why is there a picture of a rabbit at the top and what's that got to do with new stamps?" Well, Belinda's studio is being overrun with rabbits (sort of a Beatrix Potter situation) and she is terribly distracted. She hid the new paintings from me and the other designers so we wouldn't show them on our blogs before Tuesday.

But, well, I sorta found one of them sorta kinda accidently and I sorta "borrowed" it and somehow it ended up on my blog.
Do you see where it is? (pssst--look on the side down near the bottom) Isn't it great?

I hope Belinda doesn't see this! Maybe she'll be too distracted by rabbits to read my blog this week.
