Two cards, one sentiment, and a FUN bit of news!...

Hey everyone!

FOR THE RECORD....I have a fun card for you today using "For the Record", actually...as in, Echo Park "For the Record" 6x6 Sampler pack from Claudia & Company!

And speaking of Claudia & Co., I have some fun news!!!   I will now be bringing you a fun MONTHLY post as your friendly:

Sampler Pack Designer :)

Im giving you a little sneak peek of something I'll be doing ONCE a month-on the 3rd Thursday of each month to be exact!  Every 3rd Thursday of the month, I'll be showcasing a different 6x6 Sampler pack and showing you FUN WAYS TO USE IT!!!!!!    I am SO excited about this, and one of the BEST parts is being able to work with Claudia again!   Claudia & Co. is one of the BEST online stores out there that offers not only the best in paper and supplies, but she also sells TGF, Unity, and other fun stamps including her own SUPER fun line of Digital images too!  Seriously ADORABLE stuff, so make sure you stop by the Claudia and Company STORE and I'll see you back here with lots more later!

Today's first card uses the new Cheeky Beach stamp by The Greeting Farm and the 6x6 Sampler pack from Echo Park's "For the Record" line:

Isn't she dreamy?  She is DEFINITELY warm and toasty!  Speaking of which, that's where the fun came into play....  I had a li little idea I had to use the same sentiment on two totally different cards :)   Today for Farm Fresh Friday, we are using our Christmas stash! WHAT?  Yep, you're not in some warped time zone, it's MARCH and time to use up those pretty papers!  Speaking of pretty-I LOVE this Tinsel and Twig collection so much that I'm actually glad I can still get it-I will definitely want to use it again!  But I did have a few scraps left over, so using this week's SCS Sketch Challenge, here is my card using Beanie Anya:

I LOVE these Sampler packs.  What a FUN and AFFORDABLE way to be able to try out so many of the latest and greatest paper lines out there w/out breaking the bank, first of all...and second-there are always NEW ones being put into the Claudia and Co. store...and honestly?  I'm not really a fan of having to store 12x12 papers and have been known to cut all my 12x12 into this 6x6 size anyway!.  I really like these packs because there's just enough paper before you want to move on to the next paper trend!  Best of all, they're priced at just over $3-some being even less than that!

I have to say it was fun to provide TWO takes on the "warm and Toasty" sentiment this week and even MORE fun to share w/ you my fun little announcement!    And for even MORE fun..I've got a SUPER weekend planned...can't wait to kick it off!

HAPPY WEEKEND everyone!
