BUNNY BUDDIES!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Oh my gosh … I got home from work yesterday and found the best thing in my mail box! No bills … just my Paper Pumpkin.  It is so stinkin’ cute!

Check it out, watch the video ~

Our Paper Pumpkin Bunny Buddies are bursting onto the scene just in time for spring! Every March kit comes with nine bunny cards and bags. Watch their personalities emerge as you customize each one with a face, ears, accessories, and a pompom cottontail. They are simply “ear”-resistible!

Stop back tomorrow and check out my alternative to the kits projects … not sure how I’m going to top these cute bunny bags!

Till then … Have a great day!

    

Celebrate Every Day …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a fun card to share with you that is full of color and full of layers, yet super simple to put together! Oh yes, and I’m going to tease you again with that pretty Sale-a-bration Glimmer Paper that will be released on the 21st! It’s less than one week away!

To create this card I pulled out my “Celebrate Every Day” Project Life Card Collection. I don’t just use my Project Life for my scrapbooking … I use it for cards and more. There are so many fun patterns and verses. Both of the “cards” came directly from the kit, no trimming or cutting!

Here’s a short video that shows your everything that you get in the Card Collection and Accessory pack.

Memory keeping has never been so easy! With the Celebrate Every Day Project Life Card Collection and Accessory Pack, you can quickly and easily create photo pages, cards, and more.

I am somewhat attached to those cute little heart embellishments too, they are from the Sending Love embellishments found on page 15 of the Occasions Catalog.  Hearts aren’t just for Valentines. It’s one of the most treasured ways to express your feelings without saying a word ❤

I used the Tombo Glue to adhere the Glimmer Paper to the base, and the flower card to my Glimmer paper and the Heart embellishments to that card.  It works really nice without the worry of the card falling apart.

Let me know if you have any questions about the Project Life Card Collections, we have more in the annual catalog! They are fun and easy to play with.

Thank you for checking out my blog …

I hope your day is a good one!

What did we do “before” the … BIGSHOT!?

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

What DID we ever do before we got out BigShots? Some of us did the fussy cutting and the dry embossing but it was a lot of work! Today I’m here with two great video’s that will explain how easy the BigShot is to use and some great tips! It will explain “when” to use each of the plates “magnetic” and “precision” and which cutting dies to use with them. Then I’ll share 3 cards that I had made.

Say hello to your crafty friend—the Big Shot. It’s a manual, multipurpose die-cutting system that you can use to quickly and easily create die-cut or embossed shapes, tags, and 3D items. It’s portable; no electricity required. And we offer a huge array of dies and accessories to make your crafting fun and easy.

So In Love … Happy Anniversary

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared with you the “So In Love” bundle, what did you think? Pretty right!

Well today I’m going to share a simply beautiful card that I created using the “So In Love” bundle. I began with with the largest of the dies and knew I just wanted it to highlight my designer paper.

000_4031

I knew I was going to use the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper so I chose the Very Vanilla cardstock as my base and cardstock to be die cut. I used the Precision Base Plate and die brush to cut and discard of the inner pieces with ease.

Next, I layered my designer paper onto my base, and then my die cut piece onto the designer paper.  I then added my “Happy Anniversary” greeting which I stamped in Crumb Cake on my banner.  I added the pretty little “Falling in Love” embellishment to anchor my banner and create and eye catching effect.

How simple, and how pretty is this.  You could use this card layout with so many of our pretty designer papers, and there are plenty more greetings to use in this stamp set.

Hope you enjoyed … Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Have an awesome day!

So In Love …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a quick post but it’s packed full of stampin’ tips and samples from the So In Love bundle. We’re going to start with a video …

Carrie, from the training team at Stampin’ Up!, shares some beautiful project ideas and tips for using the So in Love Stamp Set and So Detailed Thinlits Dies from the 2017 occasions catalog.

I also want to share some additional projects that were created with this fabulous bundle …

so-in-love-2

Here you can see the foliage stamp was used to create the background, then the flower was added to compliment the foliage and add some dimension.  A pretty bow and an banner with the “just for you” greeting completes this card. 

Look at the jar in the background … it was wrapped with one of the delicate bands created from the dies. Below the die cut band was used again to turn this simple bag into a beautiful gift bag.

so-in-love-1

If you love pretty, delicate items … this is the bundle for you.  I can image all sorts of beautiful cards and gift packages that you could make for Wedding’s, Anniversaries, Mother’s Day … or a special friend.

Let me know what you think!

More on Birthdays

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share another video that highlights a birthday card kit!

Stampin’ Up! trainer Brandi and her daughter Lily Jane, share some tips and tricks for the Birthday Bright Project Kit–a brand-new kit in the 2017 occasions (spring/summer) catalog.

I thought it was so cute to see Brandi’s daughter Lily Jane showing us how to make this card.  You’re never too young or old to stamp!  My granddaughter started stamping when she was 4 years old … and I have many stampers that are well (shhhh) we never tell a women’s age!!

This kit is awesome and the cards are so cute!  Twelve cards with envelopes and 12 gift tags and the cute storage box… wow! Don’t forget the envelope template … how neat to have that for all your future mailings.  I now have this on my next order!! Let me know if I can order one for you, or just click on the pictures below and you can shop directly from my on-line store.

Thanks so much for checking out my blog today.

I hope your day is a good one.
