Fabulous Friend Julie Masse

Hi all!  I’m back today with a new Fabulous Friend Julie Masse.  I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Julie several times, and she is truly one of the sweetest souls around!

Before I show off her DELIGHTFUL project, let’s get nosy:

What is your signature move?  Is there one style or technique that seems
to adorn your every creation?

I don’t know about a signature move but I love to add bling to most every project!  Anytime I see the opportunity to add a “Jewel” I go for it!  With the different colors and sizes available now it’s fun to add a little touch here and there.

What’s your favorite MFT set and why?

Favorite MFT?  Isn’t that like asking what child you love the most?  Ha!  I first fell in love with WTG and her cute style! Of course, when Pure Innocence came out I fell in love with those as well – along with the rest of the known stamping world!  I think currently I just love Little Loveosaurus, it’s such a fun little boy set and different from other boys sets out there!  I love the “RAWR” stamp!

Any funny stamping stories?  Glitter mishaps??  SPILL!

I can remember not long after I got on my first design team we had regular team challenges.  I don’t remember what the challenge was but I will never forget that I was totally stumped and in the end made about the ugliest card I’ve ever seen!  It wasn’t the stamps fault (lol!), in fact it was a cute old MFT set with a turkey.  The person (who shall remain nameless) I had to send it to didn’t let me live it down for quite some time – she kept it on her desk, a constant reminder of what NOT to do when stamping!  Thankfully the turkey card got lost and can only haunt my dreams! :)

Check out this adorable Beach Bum card!!!  EEK!  And the Cloud Trio Die-namics, and the tie dye bathing suit….oh heavens!

Please hop over to Julie’s BLOG and let her know how much we appreciate her time and talent!!!

WSC – Earth Girl

Happy Wednesday!  I am back today with a new Wednesday Stamp Club, and today’s challenge is to keep it earthy!  In colors, or textures, or even by using the new Earth Girl felt, buttons or WTG Goes Green stamp set.

For my card, I created an anniversary card for Camster who will be stopping by tomorrow, coincidentally on her 9th wedding anniversary.  And since I don’t have to mail the card, chances are good she will get it!  SNORT!

I used Grow Love, My Fave Cork, Jumbo Scalloped Die-namics die and Earth Girl Buttons along with a Fossil Scalloped note card.

And now how about some GOOD NEWS??? The Cloud Trio, Jumbo Scallop and Grosgrain Texture Board are back in stock!!  You can find them all in the Die-namics category.

Need even more good news?  Today ONLY (06.09.2010) is a 4 for $50 day!  Need to catch up on some recent MFT Releases?  Now’s your chance!  Valid on in stock sets only.

Fabulous Friend Jessica Fick

I am so excited to have Jessica Fick as today’s Fab Friend! I can’t wait to show off the amazing scrapbook page she’s created, but first…let’s get nosy!!!

What is your signature move?  Is there one style or technique that seems to adorn your every creation?
Hmmm… I love to embellish – thus my blog name, “i Embellish!”  White space and I aren’t very comfortable together, so I love to fill my projects with ribbons, buttons, brads,  stamped images, and paper punches, etc.  Lately my ‘go to’ embellishments are buttons and favorite ‘technique’ is sewing, since I finally got a sewing machine that works!  Patterned papers are another weakness – especially anything by October Afternoon or Basic Grey. 

What’s your favorite MFT set and why?
I simply adore the Pure Innocence line of stamps!  They are like trading cards to me and I MUST have them all!  I love anything ‘cute-sy’, so I’ve fallen hard for all the Jolinne and Fred the Bear images as well.  While I love to make cards, I also really enjoy scrapbooking so these adorable images are perfect embellishments for the books that I make for my family and friends! 

What do you hoard?
What do I hoard?  Hmmm… as crazy as it sounds – embellishments!  I have SO MANY containers filled with certain ‘special’  embellishments like charms, decorative brads, eyelets, etc. that are just waiting for me to use on a project, but when it comes time to stamp, I always reach for my ‘stand- by’ favorites such as buttons or plain brads that I never actually get around to using the items from my stash!  Periodically, I like to challenge myself by pulling out a container or two of my neglected supplies and only use those items to embellish a mini scrapbook or a set of cards.  

And, don’t even get me started on my patterned paper stash… yikes!  Let’s face it, some papers are just too pretty to cut and actually use, aren’t they!?

When Jess first emailed this over, she asked if it was OK as it wasn’t a card. I opened it up and after wiping the drool from my chin immediately said “YES!”, it’s more than OK. Seriously.

Jessica used Jolinne Sweet Spring on this page, but the focal point is someone ever more beautiful:

Now, after drooling with me over this gorgeousness, how about stopping by her blog and leaving her some love?
