Mother’s Day Idea …

Hello my Stampin’ Friends,

Oh my … sorry I missed a post but I’m having technical difficulties with my internet services lately.  Seems to be a lot of technical difficulties in my life lately!   LOL   Yes, I laugh (now) … life really is too short.

So I am sharing a quick post from our “Inspired By” blog from Stampin’ Up! and Senior Staff Writer; Cindy B.

I loved her fabulous idea, and I love how she doubled her flowers!!  We made flowers at our Spring Retreat, now I’m going to try it this way too!  Not to worry … I’ll be sure to share with you!

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is fast approaching—so I thought I would make a few Mother’s Day projects to let my dear mom know that I am thinking of her!

This picture was taken of my mom in Northern Michigan in 1933–when she was three-years-old.  She loves remembering her happy childhood in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.  Her Finnish grandfather, a dairy farmer, used to let her ride with him in the morning as he delivered milk to the neighbors in his Model T. She still thinks of him all of the time!

To make cute tags for your Mother’s Day gifts, just scan and print favorite pictures of your mom on Whisper White Cardstock, then punch them out. (To give her an especially fun surprise, try to find pictures that she hasn’t seen for ages!)  The frame for my mom’s tag was made using the Chalk Talk and Papillon Potpourri Stamp Sets. To make a glittery jar for flowers or some other gift, just paint the lower half of a mason jar with Mod Podge. Then sprinkle on some gold glitter and let it dry. That’s it!

I made the roses using the Big Shot and Stampin’ Up!’s new Spiral Flower Originals Die. To see a wonderful demonstration showing you how to make flowers using this die, click here! (To make fuller flowers, use two spiral flower die cuts layered on top of each other.)

Here are a couple of more fun ways to conceal sweet surprises for mom on her special day.
