Card shares.....

Shares from the "Celebration" book, I got this paper FREE, so I have been using it for my "Thank-you " cards to my customers.

This is a baking powder can that I just         couldn't throw away,
 I am so my grandma's granddaughter!! So I covered it in DSP and embossed the pink paper,used the "Big Shot" # 113439 to cut out the Bird & Leaves# 113465 which is going to be retiring with the new catalog release July 1. So if you like this, hurry to order. You can go here: http://www.bridgetmartinelli.stampinup.net/
Baby card for my cousins shower.. Congrats Gina!!! Stamp set   #113500 Fun & Fast Notes. This set is a wonderful set includes, birthday, thanks, christmas, wedding, congratulations, get well. For the background on the pink paper I used "Elements of Syle"# 120045 clear mount. I love it cause you can make up your own desinger paper using stamp, to make it one of a kind. Great for that altered look. Again you can find this all on my website: http://www.bridgetmartinelli.stampinup.net/

May Workshop- New Summer Mini Catalog Debut

Summer Mini Workshop- May
We all had a great time, here is my presentation.We did three cards, Fathers Day, Happy Birthday, Vintage. All got a special "Thank-You Treat" favor. We had a drawing for prizes, dessert & snacks.
I always enjoy every ones company so much, thanks to all who attended!

                Here is the Father's Day card, stamp set "King of the Grill" # 120066. We used the new "Silver Foil Smooch Spray" #118771to give it a smokey dirty look. The "color catcher" spray box # 121093 worked really good to keep things from getting sprayed on, well I guess if you pointed the hole in the right direction! ha.. took a while to master, but all loved the results. For the roof in red we used the "Crimper" #101618.
The Happy Birthday card is using the  "Builder Wheels" that are featured in the  "Summer Mini" , "So many stars" # 118620, "Happy Birthday" # 118619, "Candle Crazy" # 118618, the handle to hold them all together"Jumbo Handle" # 103661, "Wheel spindle and Spacers" # 119895, I also used the "Uninked triple Cell Cartridge" # 121206, which you can ink up with ink refills of your choice for any color combo. Very simple & bright!
Last but by all means NOT least....Vintage card.  "Elements of Style" #120045 clear mount. Used "Smooch Spray" #118772 in Vanilla Shimmer. So pretty, also used the crimper for the background banner and the "Eyelet border punch" # 113692. Everyone kind of did their own take, some used the other colors of "Smooth spray" . Which is what it is all about, creating and making it yours!

Puppy dogs & Roses

Here is Roscoe & Easton
Both very spoiled!
Roscoe is the recue dog, actually so was Easton.
They are great company and bring life back to the house!

Here are some pictures of roses from my garden.
Finally roses, with the weather they struggled through.

Graduation shares

Graduation day: Fresno State University
My baby Marcello has graduated. Profession, "Strength & Conditioning Coach", he is off to intern with the San Jose Shark team, and to live with some of my cousins. Exciting times. We want to thank all for who share in their lives to make them  what they have become, godparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, & friends. Thank-You!

My oldest Giancarlo also completed his teaching credential and now is looking for a "Physical Education/ teaching/ coaching" job. Any takers out there? Go team - go!!! It looks like we will continue cheering for a team, with their careers! Very proud!

Here is another grad card I made for a friend graduating form UC Merced.  Let's just pray that things get better out there for all these graduates and that they are able to find jobs. Proud of their hard work and dedication.
