Happy New Year!!

Relaxing in the Oasis


Fun With The SOS Stampin' Gals!

Hi, Everyone!!  I am probably going to transition to my Stampin' Up Blog over the course of the next few months.  In the meantime, I'll continue posting at ReeCreations.  (It all depends on my getting comfortable with the new site!)

The wind was blowin', the air was chillin', but it was warm and cozy in the Stampin' Oasis last Tuesday evening as the SOS Stampin' gals created up a storm!  Ladies, I'm always so proud of you, your creativity, your helpfulness to all in the group, and your being up for the challenge of what I throw your way!!

Our time together is sooooo limited so I try to help you to get your hands on as many techniques and products as possible!!  Motivated, happy stampers that you are, this is never a problem!!  I thank you!!!

Here is a picture of two of our three projects.  I loved the gift bag we made so much (even though I confessed that I wasn't liking it much while it took me 2 hours to really get the design to work!), that I gifted a lovely lady with it the very next day.  If you want to see it, go to Joyce's Kaleidoscope  blog where she has a lovely picture of all three of our projects.

We had fun with bits and pieces from my scrap files for a card inspired by my Success Magazine using lots of circles, bitty punches, and embellishments!  Paper was popping everywhere!! LOL

We also created the "tissue paper" technique card that was featured in this month's Success Magazine too!  What a gift of inspiration!  I made a few more of these this morning to use as thank you notes for Christmas gifts!

Yesterday I got up early to "play" with the new petal punch and stamps!  I love how the Blushing Bride ink is just right for the image on the Pretty in Pink Cardstock.  Voila!!  A lovely Florida Hibiscus!  Oh, the colors we'll use!!!

More Fun:  Pictured here are the 2 projects for a friend that loves sea turtles.  One is a 2-year pocket planner and the other is a coordinating checkbook cover.  I love the earthy quality of turtles reminiscent of Native American art.

Thank you, Joyce, for the treats and Happy Birthday to Barbara, Kris, and Donna!!

Life is Good!!  Happy Stamping and Happy New Year!!
