Simply Scored Diagonal Plate

I finally had a chance to stamp this week.  Hooray!!! I know it's only March 23, but it feels like the end of this catalog is coming quickly.  In designing my club projects I knew I wanted to use  a Stampin' Wheel and I wanted to used up some of the In Color paper that will be retiring on May 31. I seem to have an abundance of Blushing Bride Card Stock so this is what I came up with:

Colors: Blushing Bride, Basic Gray, Very Vanilla.  Stamps: Very Vintage Jumbo Stampin' Wheel, and Vintage Vogue .  Accessories: Basic Gray Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Very Vanilla 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Neutral Buttons, Pearl Jewels.

And one of the things I really wanted to play with was the new Simply Scored Diagonal Plate.  I knew my club gals would love to learn an easy way to make their own envelopes to match their card.  Here they are together:

We just used the same wheel to decorate the inside of the envelope.  They turned out so cute!

One of the things I love about the diagonal plate: it comes with instructions on how to make four different sizes of envelopes to match common card sizes.  And using those measurements, you could come up with your own for other sizes as well.  If you haven't had the chance to use or see this fun new product, here is a video produced by Stampin' Up! that shows it in action:

I finally purchased a Canon DSLR camera last week.  I'm hoping it improves the pictures that I put on my blog.  Tell me what you think.

Very nice - and what a great way to use the wheels. Time to dust them off!
