Royal Blog Tour

The Royal Blog Tour was certainly a HUGE success!  Thank you all for stopping by!  I’ll be posting my Blog Candy winner on Thursday, July 30th!  Stay tuned!


Wow!  The Royal Blog Tour is finally here!  I’m excited to be able to show you some samples from the new Stampin’ Up! set, Wedding Sweet!  This set was on my to-buy list even before my son announced his engagement a few weeks ago.  Now, I’m sure I will be using it a LOT! This first sample shows the elegance of the Wedding Sweet set used in a frame to commemorate the wedding of a family friends’ daughter!  It shows off the elegance of this set by using Black Craft embossed on Shimmer Paper.

My second sample shows that this set isn’t just for weddings!  Here is a cheerful Thank You card appropriate for any occasion!  It uses two of the stamps in Wedding Sweet.

My final sample is a playful Note Card!  I will be using a variation of this for my swap card at Convention this year!  This sample uses three out of the six new In Colors along with the large stamp in Wedding Sweet!

If you like what you see today, make sure to put my Blog in your favorites and visit often.  You can also subscribe to my Blog and get my new posts in your email so you don’t miss anything!  See my subscribe box in the upper left corner. 


I’m also offering BLOG CANDY in celebration of the Royal Blog Tour!  You’ll receive the Stampin’ Up! stamp set, Sweet Dreams, shown here AND one of my Wedding Sweet swap Note Cards!  This Blog Candy is available to anyone who leaves a comment telling me which project is their favorite with their email contact information.  U.S. residents only, please.


Once this path hath reached its end, thy royal coach will travel back to the Royal Blog Tour – Home Castle where more paths await thee!

I like the thank you note the best and maybe it’s because of the dp… or at least I assume that’s dp?? It really helps make the card.

Loved the wedding framed pictures with the idea of using a stamped image in one of the openings. My son just got married and this is a very clever idea!!

My favorite project is the card where you used the large stamp from the Wedding Sweet set with 3 of the new in colors. I saw this stamp set and thought of so many other project possibilities besides wedding. Your projects are great. I can’t wait to come back and see more. Thanks for sharing.

I really like the wedding frame. I love when we can incorporate our stamps into other projects. great job on all your cards

Jul 28, 2009 - 11:07:20

My favorite one is “The More The Merrier”! I love your unique choices of color scheme for this Christmas card! I’m always looking for other colors rather than always using the same old red/green combo, so I really enjoyed seeing how you did this one! I may wind up borrowing your colors to do my own cards this year! lol!

Thanks for inviting us to enter for your blog candy.
