My Stampin' Up! Classes

Beautiful paper bows are so Worth the Wait!

Have you seen the new Gift Bow Bigz L Die in the Holiday Catalog? Love it! You'll never have bow issues again, worrying about making the sides even. This is the smaller of the two bows you can build with the die. You need two of the curved pieces and one small rectangle. I use a bone folder to curl the ends of the bow before adhering them together.

The Coastal Cabana bow tops off a cute punched baby card that uses the single Worth the Wait stamp. I stamped the image once in Baked Brown Sugar and once in Coastal Cabana and used the largest scallop circle punch, along with the 1-3/4" Circle punch to create a window of sorts. I even fussy-cut the turtle. I embossed the top Whisper White layer with Perfect Polka Dots, and adhered it to the Whisper White card front with dimensionals.
I've had tons of fun the past few days, and haven't been home much. I got to stamp for hours with my bestest bud, Kim, as well as other demonstrators this weekend for a stampin' retreat. My niece baked many dishes for us, and prepared fresh guacamole and taco meat for a taco bar. It was wonderful!

Here's my vintage share today. It was thrown in with other items I purchased at a garage sale. Do you know what it is? (Hint: It's not a mini waffle iron, which is what my hubby guessed. lol)

Well, after pondering the two spouts and the patterns, I've discovered it's a vintage WMF Ritter Citro - a lemon wedge squeezer/juicer for tea or fish. Cool, eh? And I've just been using my fingers to squeeze lemon juice into my water!

All of the items used to create the card above may be ordered at your convenience through my Online Store at I have a great deal for you this month - order Tag It from me by August 31 and you'll get your name entered into a drawing for the Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder in the Holiday Catalog.

I love your use of the bow on the card. Such a cute baby card! And as for your vintage find...I wasn't too far off :)
I guess in the day, dainty women didn't use their fingers to squeeze the lemon into their water. Thank goodness those days are over, huh? Love you!
