Vintage Vogue (Stampin' Up stamp set)

My Stampin' Up stamp set "Vintage Vogue" and ink pad (Cherry Cobbler).

Just for your information: the "sweet" card on the left is made by me joining a Stampin' Up workshop.

Hi there! How are you today? Technically it's Fall here, but it looks and feels like Summer! Here are some cards and a scrapbook page I created using my Stampin' Up stamp set "Vintage Voge" (and also SU cardstock, ribbon and embossing folder). It really is one of my favorites, and I am so glad I bought it! Today, I'll try to organize my scrapbook room ... YEP, there is a crop weekend coming up soon, and I am looking forward to it!!!!

I'd like to share this quote with you:

REACH high for stars lie hidden in your soul,
DREAM deep, for every dream precedes the goal.
- Pamela Vaull Starr -

Have a wonderful Friday!

Hugs, Laura

Getting ready for the Holidays ... a lunch bag card and much more ...

Hi there! Welcome to my blog! I hope everyone is doing well. Today I'd like to show you some christmas cards, which I've made a couple of weeks ago. For the rest of the day I'll try to get some work done in the backyard, because it looks like summer here. I hope it will stay like this for a while, because the kids are having an extra long weekend because of Columbus Day (Monday). Last week it really looked like fall, it was raining a lot and it was cold outside. Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful day!

Hugs, Laura
