Leftover Vintage Squared

Have you made anything fun with leftovers lately? I’m not talking aobut food. I’m talking about the leftover supplies you have from making a card or other paper crafting project.

Those of you who have been around me at all know I like to sneak a little chew in every now and then.

Not tobacco! I sometimes like to she a little piece of cardstock between my teeth & my cheek.

I was helping Ann clean up after the Yuba City Stamp Club was over here the other night. I found a piece of cardstock that was a pretty nice size and just too pretty to chew.

And this is what we made with it!

How to Make a Quick Flower Gift Tag

Before we share today’s video, I must bark that we were inspired by something that the Stampin’ Up! artists came up with. We just had to make it a little different.

I can see this tag on a nice sized gift. You could make it smaller if your box is small, but I like those medium sized boxes. Not too big. Not too small.

We’re featuring one of the latest IN Colors,

I Love This Color Combination!

Ann says this color combination is very close to the blue and green that she had in her roiom when she was a girl. It’s our new favortie blue/green combo with Lost Lagoon and Stampin’ Up!’s latest green: Mint Macaron.

Of course, my favorite huMAN liked it because anything with blue gets two thumbs up here at Central Bark.

We have a dear friend of our family whose daughter is graduating high school and then in the fall will be off to college.

Yep. It’s an exciting time as they make their first steps into adulthood.

Not Your Every Day Wedding Card

Is anyone you know getting married? A couple of my human friends are.

And you know what that means!

Time to make a card!

This one has something old and something new, but nothing’s borrowed or blue on it. I hope they like it because there’s not another one like it in the world!

I’m Going to Miss The Herd, Aren’t You?

I don’t think we used this stamp set enough, but I see us using it a lot in the future. The From the Herd stamp set is full of different types of greetings that would work for any occasion.

Goodbye Chalk Inks and Paper!

Goodbye Chalk Inks and Paper!

It’s a very busy time around Central Bark these days. All the travel laundry is put away and I’ve settled in my bed.

And not only are there lots of good things on the Stampin’ Up Retired Lists, but there’s a bunch of nice stuff in the Occasions catalog that’s not coming back.

And the Chalk Inks and the Chalkboard Paper are not going to be here when next month rolls around. DARN!

Hello, Goodbye!

Hello, Goodbye!

There are some stamp sets that I just hate to see go. Especially when I like the way the font looks or I can envision lots of things to do with it.

I’m really going to miss this one because the state flower of California is the California Poppy. It looks a lot like these – except for the color.

And with rubber stamping, we can change the color if we want.

Quick & Cute Thank You Card

We’re going to make this one quick and cute – like me – because Ann & I are studying the new Stampin’ Up! catalog that Stampin’ Up! released online to the demonstrators this morning.

We were so excited that didn’t even go to bed!

I think that we may have found what color
