The Geisha Girls Have Arrived!!

Simply Betty Stamps has some fabulous new stamps out today.
Geisha Girls!
They are only going to be for sale for a very limited time,
so you don't want to miss out on these.

For my trifold screen card I used some gorgeous paper from Michelerdesigns.
I also used a template from craftsuprint.

For my first bookmark/tag, I used some scraps of paper that I had that I thought would just be the perfect compliment my Geisha girl.

The paper on this tag is from a DCWV Mariposa mat stack
 that my daughter got me for Christmas.
The bottom of the tag/bookmark is from the edge of one of the papers that I cut out, and then added a little bit of red ribbon to.
Please check out what the other Simply Betty DT girls have made.
They have some outstanding projects using these lovely girls.
Also there is a great sale going on for a very limited time on the

New Simply Betty Stamps!!!

Today we are having a new set of commissioned stamps available
over at Simply Betty Stamps.
They are all pretty terrific. 

I used some really pretty black & white Damask paper
and added some pretty lace.
I also used my glitter pen on the scroll work on the dress.
I used a template to cut out the bright blue paper to add a little pizzazz to it.
I thought this might make a great bookmark to keep around.

I used some really cute BoBunny Camp A Lot paper for these 2 projects.
I just layered some of the different papers onto my bookmark/tag.
I LOVE this paper!!

Let's Do Lunch!

Simply Betty Stamps has a great new Tuesday Solo stamp... Diner Janet.
She is just terrific!
I decided to make a cookbook bookmark.
She seemed just perfect for this.
And perfect to go as a gift with a cookbook.
I used some fabulous paper from The Paper Studio "Hey Baby".
I added a chalkboard with Today's Special written on it and a cute doily.
I also added 2 different border die cuts, and some cute musical notes.
Hope you will check out the new stamp and
what the other DT members have created.
