Bye, Bye! Inque Boutique!

I am very sad! As many of you know, Darice, a large craft company known for making cheap products, had purchased Inque Boutique a couple of months ago. Well, now they have pulled the Inque Boutique website down, where I had about 500+ layouts, cards and projects on, and so did many others, I might add. I have also heard they will not be producing any more Inque products. It is very sad to see such a great company go down the tubes like that! I personally will not be purchasing any more of their products, unless they continue with IB.

So, with that being said, I thought I would post a few LO's, cards and projects throughout the week, that was made with IB products(stamps, paper, felt, etc). In honor, of my favorite company that is no more!! LOL as I wipe away the tears! {giggle}

Today, will be Baby Day!

Here is a baby girl card I made with IB stamps,paper by Making Memories, My Mind's Eye and Bazzill, a Prima flower and some adhesive pearls.

Here is a baby shower card I made with IB stamps,DCWV papers, lace ribbon and some mini button brads.

Here is a layout I made with IB stamps, Bazzill CS, Silver EP, buttons, ribbon and crystals.

Baby Shower favors using IB stamps, Melissa Frances label, crocheted flowers, pearls, ribbon, rope and a tin heart.

Card made with IB stamps, gold EP, Bazzill Basics CS, sheer ribbon, safety pin, brads and a Marvy Uchida photo corner punch.

This card is one of my favorites, I used IB stamps, DCWV paper, part of a Jolee's Boutique fence sticker, satin ribbon and some brads.

Sorry for such a long post! I have plenty more! I will post some Birthday cards and projects tomorrow!

Have a Blessed Day!

Hugs, Melissa

You do beautiful things with the IB, I too loved their stamps. The whole buy out thing is sad and was news to even the DT members that was found out second hand. :0(
