One of the best parts of spring is the new life that emerges arounds us.

Flowers are beginning to bloom.  The grass is getting greener and there's often a fragrant smell in the air.

Ahhh, spring!

One of my very favorite sounds are the baby birds chirping in their nest. We have a very large oak tree in our front yard and their little voices are another sure sign that spring is here. 

That tree is situation right outside my stamp room window.  It was those baby chirps that inspired today's card!

I've included a video tutorial along with pictures and cutting dimensions for today's card below.  

What tell tale sings of spring are emerging around your house?

I love creating 3D projects. I enjoy them just as much as I do creating hand stamped cards.  I especially like that I can create themed projects for parties or holidays that are one-of-a-kind.

Today's video tutorial uses the Basket Bunch Bundle. If you missed it, this Bundle was part of my Studio Stamps in the Mail (SSITM) this month.  Although ordering for this month's SSITM has ended, the tutorial for the cards are available in my Project PDF Tutorial library HERE.  

I'm having so much fun with this Bundle because the images and verbiage are versatile.  Photopolymer images make them easy to stamp, and, coupled with coordinating framelits for every image, you'll never fussy cut anything!

Today's video will also teach you a new way to create a bow.  I call it a "tuxedo bow".  With this bow, you'll never have to worry about it being too big, having uneven loops or being lop-sided.  

Be sure to scroll down and see the pictures, cutting dimensions and supplies I've included for this project.

Sweet Tasty Trucks

Mark your calendar for tomorrow - Tuesday, February 21st!  

Stampin' Up! is releasing THREE (3) NEW Sale-A-Bration products that you are going to love!

Stampin' Up! found food trucks interesting enough to design a Sale-A-Bration stamp set around them.  The stamp set is called "Tasty Trucks".  

Turns out that food trucks are a 1.2 billion dollar industry!  And, they aren't going away anytime soon. The industry is growing by over 12% a year. Why?  Easy, it's convenient for the customer.  

The average food truck brings in $290,000 a year in revenue.  The average food truck meal is $12.40 and 55% of their business come from street/corner locations.  

The average cost to convert and set up a food truck is $85,000. That doesn't include the necessary additional expenses like pots, pans, paper products, licensing and permits. That racks up another $5,000. That's more than a year's salary for most of us! 

Today's card features the Tasty Trucks stamp set.  The beauty of this food truck - it serves up lots of fun themes and delicious options.  Take a look at the video tutorial below. 

Don't forget to scroll down to see the pictures, the supplies and the cutting dimensions I've included.  

I think this stamp set will have your appetite ready for more Sale-A-Bration freebies!

I've only eaten from two food trucks and both were in Hawaii. The food was AMAZING!  Sitting outside at a picnic table, with a delicious meal served on a paper plate - yes please...hello food trucks!
