I cannot believe that....

school is getting ready to start! We're already into August! You know, when I was a kid we didn't start school 'til after Labor Day! Oh how times have changed. Are you little ones heading back soon?

Phyllis from BossKut was kind enough to send me some great photos of some of their designer's projects using the new shapes. Look at these adorable gift boxes...

Here they used the new Butterfly Flourish and the Blossom Flowers. You could make these boxes for any occasion and fill them with candy, toys or even pens and things for the teacher!

Now here's a peek at a layout using the new Bride and Groom.

This could easily be used for layouts for prom and holiday parties as well.

And here's a layout using their new Wedding Cake.

You could easily alter this shape to make a layered birthday cake or even a Valentine cake! Imagine the possibilities!

My kids had a birthday party to attend yesterday and those who know me know that I do NOT buy birthday cards...even for children! Why buy a card when I can make one especially for that person?! Here's the card the birthday boy received yesterday...

I used the Sassafras Lass Bungle Jungle Kit and the hippo from the Clear Stamps. Then I made layers of grass under the hippo using the Quickutz 2x2Grass. I mounted the stamped image using Spellbinders Square and Scallop Square Nestabilities. For the balloons, I used a mixture of cardstock stickers from the kit and made some using the Quickutz Nesting Balloons. After cutting the number 4 candle I added shimmer to the flame using my Copic Spica Glitter Pens. The 'happy birthday' was stamped with my Sassafras Lass Make a Wish Acrylic Stamps. This card really came together quite quickly too.

Well, we sure hope you had a great weekend! Thanks for starting your week off with us! I'm still working on my Boss Kut Paper Dolls projec and I just know you're going to LOVE it when I'm stay tuned! Have a great day and we'll see you back here Wednesday!

What do you (or anyone else that wants to chime in here) use inside all these great cards? I love making my own cards and have also done a bunch for bazaars and fund raisers, but I am always at a loss for sayings on the inside. Seems like if there is a saying you can always add to it if you want w/ a handwritten note. But if there is no saying it becomes more of a notecard, and you are pretty much 'forced' :) to write something.
