Gecko Galz February Sample

Just a couple Valentine cards .......it was hard to pick cuz there were so many images to choose from. 


This image was from "ValentineWishes1"  and the paper is Gecko Galz "Oh Cupid Paper" Just love the hearts and little arrows ! I hate the fact that the card base looks orangy - it is a pale pink ! lol
I did mat the image with a pale pink also and popped it up.


As you can see....I really liked the heart and arrow paper because I used it again !! Same color pink (I matted the image and the card front) on this card but it actually looks pink ! White card base and a lovely red sheer ribbon that I got from Joanne's - they were having a 50% sale on their ribbon so I stocked up on some sheer ribbon !

Here is your free digital stamp for February:
It's a cutie !

Gecko Galz - February....the month for "LOVE" and Valentines

Our customer challenge is "Hearts and Kisses" and here is my project:


one of my favorite card types is the easel card. I love that you can set it up and show it off. The paper I used was from my paper scraps. The Hugs and Kisses stamp is from Close To My Heart ( I am a consultant with them so I have lots of stuff from them) and the little square piece that I popped up to hold the card front up was something I did ages ago with a Sizzix die. Ribbon is from my ribbon stash. The main image is from Gecko Galz collage sheet Valentine Wishes 2. Oh and the little heart stickers were my find at the dollar store.

January Gecko Galz Sample

January is the start of a new year and it has already been crazy. We are looking forward to a move hopefully mid year so I am trying to get things organized and somewhat packed (but not enough that I can't be creative. I got one sample done but hope to do better next month and the months to come. decided to find some new years images and since my files were not put away by subject, I have been trying to get my files organized also. I have been on the design team for a few years so I had alot to go thru !!!!! But I did find one I wanted to use, it is from a older product. Very simple but works for starting a new year.


Just thought I would throw in one more card I quickly did..........the card front paper I used is from the Carnival Paper Pack and the image is from a Gecko Galz freebie on Pinterest.  If you would like to join in on some of the challenges but don't have any images click on the Pinterest in the line above and it will take you to some freebies on pinterest from Gecko galz.
Here it is:

January Gecko Galz Customer Challenge " All That Glitters"

Here we are starting a new year and what a way to start it by being creative. It is hard for me to get all glittery when creating because I am what they call a C&S person........which is clean and simple. I love all the glittery and shiny projects our team comes up with and I try so hard to do the same but I always end up with more simple. My brain just says less is more !!!!! So here is my sample for the challenge:


Come join us by being creative this month and get your glitter on !!!!!!

Christmas Tag of the day and December Sample for Gecko Galz

My favorite time of the year and I make all my Christmas cards (I sent and gave over 65 cards this year) and I make all my gift tags. I love this time of the year and as usual, it is so easy to create with the Gecko Galz products. The first tag is my feature tag along with a few others I made (as you can see I go alittle crazy when the subject motivates me !


These are all simple tags that I use up my scrap papers with. Most of them are inked with brown ink and the backs are stamped with To and From. Add some ribbon and a bow and they are done.
Here are a few more:




Here is my December sample, I made a card.


Hope you enjoyed all my samples I love making them and sharing them with you. 

Here is my December free stamp for you:


Have fun creating !
