Squash Book...

A while back I attended a class, hosted by my friend Kerri-Leigh Grady. She put these great books together for us... and I've been promising her this tutorial. Now that I've put it together I wanted to get it on here.

This is a 4" x 4" book that can be used like a scrapbook, etc... and super easy to tuck in the purse or briefcase! It makes for a great brag-book for new grandparents, pet lovers, etc.

Pretty darn rad, eh? (Yes, I said rad.) If you'd like to try it out for yourself... check out the tutorial here.

Another Baby Shower gift...

Lately it seems I only find time to stamp when I need to make a gift for an event. This past weekend it was a baby shower for my friend Lisa... expecting their first child. They've waited so long for this... and I am so excited for she and Justin! Such great friends who deserve what they've longed for ... for such a long time.

So the card on the top is the card that went w/ the gift... and a close up shot, of course. And the 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card was her THANK YOUS for the baby shower. Adorable, eh?! I hope I get one in the mail!

Details, details...
