Knockout Betty

Well I am very sorry to say that this will be my very last post
as a member of the Simply Betty Stamps Design Team.
While I have only been on the Design Team for a short 6 months,
I have been honored to be on a team with some fabulous DT members.
It is with sad news that Betty has decided to dismantle her Design Team
due to personal and business decisions.
Unfortunately, I will no longer be a part of that wonderful team.
But as my last post for Simply Betty, I would like to post up
this new Tuesday Solo - Boxing Betty.
I wanted to keep it really simple and just focus on the words and the image, so I used some really pretty DCWV paper to back it with.
Thanks for the Good Times SBS Girls!

YeeHaw!! It's time to hit the waves!
LOL!  It's really time for a new release over at Simply Betty Stamps.
Today is the first four of a new 50 stamp set.
Yep 50!  One to represent each state!!
How cool is that?!!
For my project I got to work with two fabulous states:
Texas and California
I decided to make bookmarks because I love bookmarks!
You can never really have too many.

For this bookmark, I used some denim paper from my stash,
and the red polka dotted paper is from Miss Caroline Dilly Dally paper pad.
I made a cute little belt out brown cardstack and added a couple of brown crystals, and some great fibers.
Love this image!

Aren't these images fabulous?!!
For this one I used some great paper Echo Park A Perfect Summper paper pad.
Added a pretty sunny brad and some great fibers andwe're set!

Merry Christmas with No Red or Green

Merry Christmas!
OK, so we're getting an early start!  You can never start too early!!

Today All Dressed Up is sponsoring a new challenge over at

Their theme for this new challenge is
Christmas - No Red or Green

Hope you'll check out their Design Team's fabulous projects
and join them in the challenge.
It's a great way to get started for Christmas!

Since I have already done some Christmas shopping, I decided
to make a little gift box for one of the gifts.

I used an adorable image from All Dressed Up Stamps
called Little Skater.

I also used some fabulous paper from Michelle R Designs.
This is actually a cupcake box, but it works for small gifts as well.
It is from the Merry & Bright Paper.
