Do you need a break from this weird, winter weather? I think that today's the first day in about five days that we haven't had fog but we still don't have sunshine. So if you're looking for something to do come to the Paper Palace (my house) on Thurs to make cards. Or you can go to Penny Lane on Monday. We'll be making 8 cards, 2 each of 4 different designs, with envelopes. And the cost is only $15.00 or free with a minimum order. Or if it's your first time then the class is free. Don't want to come by yourself then bring a friend. The more the merrier. The only thing I ask is that you let me know that you're coming so that I can have everything ready. That's right, I do all the prep work and you just stamp and assemble. So if the weather is getting you down come and have a fun break with me.

Card class is coming up this week and here's one of the cards and envelopes that we'll be making. Come to the Paper Palace on Thurs or to Penny Lane next Monday and I'll show you how I did this card and envelope. Just let me know that you're coming so that I can have everything ready.

I'm sorry if you're getting bored with this stamp set but I love it so much. And here I've paired it with another stamp set out of the Occasions catalog. Mediterranean Moments is a great set and as someone who has been to Italy it's very authentic. And it works great with Beautiful You. Here I stamped the girl and then masked it and stamped the background. After I finished this one I thought that I should have made the umbrella red. I think that would really pop the image. I can hardly wait until next weeks card class when you'll get to use this set.

I've got more "Beautiful You" cards to show you but I decided to change things up a little with a valentine's day card. Do you like chickens? Then you're going to love the "Hey Chick" stamp set that is in the Sale A Bration catalog. And the best part is that it's FREE. That's right, free when you place a $50.00 order of other Stampin' Up! supplies.
Let me know if you want this set. You can place an order at any time or come to my next card class and order something then. The next class is Jan 26th. Come and enjoy some time away from home.

I am so in love with this stamp set. It's the best. On this card I used the new thinlit die called So Detailed. There are three dies in the set and they're all beautiful. It doesn't show up much in this picture but I used the stitched framlit oval behind the image. I used our new watercolor pencils to color the dress. I'm having lots of fun playing with the pencils and I haven't even broken out the watercolor paper yet. The back ground paper was lots of fun. It's just Whisper White card stock that I painted with a drop of re-inker and a couple of drops of water. Put the drops on a clear block and mixed together. Used my aqua painter to apply to the paper. That probably wouldn't be a good technique for a class because it takes a while to dry but it was really fun to do and I like how it turned out.
Let me know if you need anything or you can always order from me on my Stampin' Up! web page http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/lynnschulz/

Here's one more card made with Beautiful You. Thanks to Fran Ward for this beautiful card. She did the background with other stamps and the dress is paper pieced. It's it beautiful.
Just remember that you can get this set out of the Occasions catalog and if you get it and need ideas just go to Pinterest and look. There's lot of ideas on there.

Here's the third image of a woman in the set "Beautiful You" I used the new water color pencils to color the image but it's hate to see in this picture. The flowers are from a FREE stamp set called Avant Garden. How can it be free you ask. Well, it's out the Sale A Bration catalog and you can get it free with a $50.00 order. Or you can pick one of 11 other free items.
