Beautiful Lace - New for 2011-12

I am back from Seminar and can not wait for you to see the new TAC catalog! Just let me know if you want one. I am offering the new book for $5 or FREE with a $35 order from the catalog. If you are a current hostess I have your free copy here. I'll see ya on July 11th or 12th for hostess club.

My sample today features Beautiful Lace, a brand new Nina B set. The sentiment comes from Brighten Your Day. That pretty pink and black paper is from TAC's Uptown Girl Fly With It Collection. Notice the little Scor-Bug detail on the main panel? I thought it looked like a pull chain and reinforced the lamp image.

I am still catching up AND I have so many ideas for the new catalog year so this post is going to stay short and sweet. Peace out.

TAC Favorites Blog Hop

Thank you for hopping by today! This blog hop is all about FAVORITES! I had such a hard time narrowing down my favorite TAC product or stamping technique. I finally settled on this card. I decided on this card because it represents my two favorites from the 2010-2011 catalog. Funny Farm and Funny Farm Phrases were my favorite stamps debuted in the soon to retire publication. My favorite TAC SWIC collection ( is Emma.

I pictured an outside/inside view of this card so you could see how funny the those Phrases are! They are perfect with the animals that look like they are up to no good. If these stamp sets make you smile and you want to have them for your own, than you need to order them before I leave for Seminar. They just got the retirement ax. I am so sad, I thought I had another year with my mischief making buddies!

June Kit - Details

These card are SO MUCH MORE AWESOME in person! I just can not seem to get them to photograph right. Maybe it's the time of day I am trying to take pictures. I will try again tomorrow morning. I just wanted to get these posted since I promised yesterday I would be back today with more details!

Here are the other two designs you will be able to make with the June Card Kit. You really need to see these in person!

The June Kit is just $38 (plus shipping if I need to reship to you) and here is what it includes:
-Fun Flower Pots Stamp Set Retail Value of $19.95
-10 6x6 Sheets of Emma Soar With It Collection Pattern Paper
-8 A2 Cardbases from Emma SWIC Cardstock
-5 yards of Emma Soar With It Collection Ribbon, 1 yard each style
-Antique Copper Hardware, 20 assorted pieces
-8 - 4 1/4x 5 1/2 Ivory Cardstock
-1 - 4 1/4x 5 1/2 Yellow Cardstock

I used Ordinary Greetings on all four cards. If you don't have the stamp se,t I highly recommend adding it on. It is a casual sentiment set that is not too big and not too small. It's my favorite TAC greeting set. I was sad to see it on the retirement list...however, that's a bonus for you since it's 30% off right now.

I used VersaMagic Ink on my samples. You might want to check your ink pads and make sure you have colors that will work. If you want to add ink to your kit just say so! I am going to offer 10% off any ink pads ordered with the June kit. I used Jumbo Java, Gingerbread, Brick Red, Thatched Straw, Tea Leaves, Pink Grapefruit, and Aspen Mist on my cards.

May Kits are HERE, June Kits are AVAILABLE!

If you ordered a May Card Kit they are arriving daily! I am cutting and packing and printing as we speak! If you didn't get one and you want one, just email me! I can get the stamps for a few more weeks. You can see my May Card Kit in this post and more samples here and here.

My May kit was such a smashing success, I decided to go ahead right away with a June Card Kit! Here are two of the four cards this kit will make. The kit has enough paper and embellishments to make two of each design with leftover supplies for you to make your own designs.

I will be back tomorrow with the other two cards and the details. Don't delay if you want this kit because the stamp set, Fun Flower Pots (a TAC Level C hostess set) will be gone for good in just a couple of short weeks!
