Do you ever have this problem with your "Framelits"?  You reach for your Framelits so you can create that beautiful card you've been waiting all day to put together, and your Framelits are all tangled and stuck to the tape on the packaging.  Here is the answer to that problem.

Magnetic Vent Covers!!  These magnetic pages are perfect for storing your Framelits.  Three (3) sheets, 81/2" x 11" for $5 at Loews.  Simply cut out the magnetic sheet with your scissors to the same size piece of card board that comes with the Framelits.  Lay your Framelits on the magnetic side and slide it right back into the envelope that your framelits came in.

Wa La!!  Isn't this great!  I did this to all 25 packs of my Framlits. I wish I had done this several years ago.  They are so easy to pull off and put back on and store.

Another card using the For All Things (135155) stamp set.  I stamped the Very Vanilla background using Cajun Craze ink and I used a green pen for the dots.  The piece of Very Vanilla in the center was cut using the Labels Collection Framelits (125598). I stamped the leaves using Cajun Craze, Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss ink and then fussy cut them and attached them to the card.  The button is the new Gold Basic Metal (133763) buttons from the Holiday catalog.

I created this card using the new For All Things (135152) stamp set from the new Holiday Catalog.  I used Stampin' Up's! Burlap Ribbon (132140) to make the little bag for the flowers and tied it up using the Linen Thread (104199).  Easy peasy card!!

Kate Liechty created this card using the Perfect Pennants stamp set on page 16 of the catalog.  She also used the Banners Framlits on page 231 and the new Washi Tape on page 190.  This is such a fun and festive card.

Chris G made this card using the new Petite Petals on page 125 of the catalog. She colored the pearls to match the flowers.  Very pretty.

Mary Skinkis created this card using the Everything Eleanor stamp set on page 69 of the catalog.  This is not a new stamp set but one not to be forgotten.  I've always loved this set.  Very pretty card.

This card was made by Mary J.  She used the Work of Art stamp set on page 165.  

I hope you have enjoyed looking at these cards, and hopefully they have given you some new ideas.

Angie Lunden created this beautiful card using the new Friends Who Know stamp on page 114 in the catalog.  She used the File Tabs Edgelits on page 229 on each edge of the card so they interlock, and then she used a bellyband to keep the card closed.  I love this idea.

This card is so beautiful with all the colors.  Arlyne Dagostino designed this card using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set on page 165 of the catalog.  She then stamped the butterflies using the Papillon Potpourri on page 149 and punched them out using the Elegant Butterfly punch on page 219.

MaryAnn Kasper made this fun birthday card using the Age Awareness stamp set on page 50 in the catalog.  She also used the really fun Beach House Washi Tape on page 190.  This is a really cute birthday card.

I hope you enjoyed these cards, and I will see you tomorrow for some more.

For the next few days I thought I would share with you some of the swaps I received at convention last month.  I made 100 swaps and received 100 swaps back and I love every one of them, but I have picked out some of my very favorites to share with you.

 Judy Cash created this card and she used the new Work of Art stamp set on page 165 in the catalog.  She also used the new In-Colors ink and card stock on page 179.  I love these colors together!  

Belinda Mansell made this card using the Work of Art stamp set and the new For Your Country stamp set on page 153 of the catalog. I absolutely love this card!  

Jo Ann Bernard created this card using The Open Sea stamp set on page 131 of the catalog.  This is not a new stamp set, but I never get tired of seeing it and using it.  Jo Ann embossed the background and stamped the ship and added a piece of the new Moonlight designer paper.  She also added a piece of the Early Espresso Bakers Twine to tie it all up.  

Is this card gorgeous or what?  Dawn DePalma used the By the Tide stamp set on page 131 of the catalog.  Again, not a new stamp set but a real treasure to use.  I love how Dawn used the oval Occasions Paper Piercing template on page 218 to frame the sea fan.

I hope you have enjoyed these cards and they have given you some new ideas.  I'll post some more of my favorites tomorrow.
