Strawberries and Mustaches!

Won't find those two words together often... will you?
Today's post is about some of the great new catalog items.
When I saw the picture of the strawberries on page 99 of
our new catalog I couldn't wait to try and make them!
They use the Flower Folds XL Bigz Die and I found a
great tutorial HERE on how to make these little cuties!

I made lots of them and filled them with some new
Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon as a little gift for my
club girls! Just another great reason to join one of
my clubs - free stuff! Who doesn't love that?

As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me!!

And now for the mustaches!!
Stampin' Up! has so many cute ala carte stamps
and when I saw the Many Mustaches I had two
thoughts run through my head!

1) My son will love these! (He's got a thing for mustaches)
2) The evil villian- mustache ditty we used to recite at camp!

An old picture of my Jack on his 4th B-Day, but a favorite!
We had tons of mustache fun that day. His favorite question to
ask was "Have you seen a young boy any where around here?" LOL!

So, this card is based upon a thing we did every year at camp
when I was a kid! At lunch someone might yell out "NAPKIN CALL"
then we would all scrunch up our napkins to look like a
Bow Tie shape and do the following:

Hold the Bow on your head and say (in a high pitched girl voice)
"I can't pay the rent!"
Hold the Napkin like a mustache and say (in your Villian voice)
repeat girl
"I can't pay the rent!"
repeat Villian
Then, while holding your napkin as a bow tie say (in your Super Hero voice)
"Oooo My Hero!"
"Curses! Foiled Again!"

So, I had a personalized stamp made with the phrase
Curses! Foiled Again! made. You can find all different
options on page 172 to choose from. And I accompanied
that with a sentiment from the Smarty Pants Stamp Set
to finish it all off! I was tickled with the results and hope
you like it too! If anyone else remembers the crazy
napkin call, I'd love to hear from you. (Most people I tell
this story to just don't understand what I'm talking about!)

I hope I gave you some good ideas today and you enjoyed
the projects. Thanks for stopping by and come back soon!

  1. LOL I have never heard of the napkin call, but I wish I had. What a great memory, and an awesome card too!

  2. LOL I HAVE heard of the Napkin Call, Jenny! You made me smile this morning...thanks! Adorable picture of Jack and I do love that strawberry. :-)


  3. I went to camp a lot as a kid and Never did the Napkin call, But it was always good times. I remember one time the guys at my table put Salt in the Suger.. that was gross, and I was the only one to use the Sugar that day. Love the Card. You should add a Follow Button to your side bar, you can do that in Design.. then Add a Gadget.
