Fun Projects

These are a few fun projects from my table in the past week or two.

First is the very versatile Kraft Tag A Bag bags.  I embossed it with the Softly Falling embossing folder.  I used Flirty Flamingo cardstock and ribbon.  The Sunshine Wishes thinlits makes the die cut heart that I placed on piece of vellum.  I filled it with chocolates and gave it to my friend, Becky.

Next I made a card for the weekly team stamping challenge.  This was sketch challenge and I enjoyed making my version of it.

This feautres the Swirly Bird thinlits and the butterfly is in the Sunshine Wishes thinlits.  I used the Rose Wonder stamp set for my sentiment.  I am rather fond of this and hope you like it too!

Thank you for viewing my creative projects!  You can attend my local classes or order a class kit for out of town use.  Also you can order supplies from me or through my online store here.

Happy Birthday Balloon Bouquet

I made this for my Birthday Card Buffet classes.  There is so much fun in this combo of In Colors: Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, Cucumber Crush and Tip Top Taupe!

It is important that spacing and placement is planned.  So I had a tutorial sheet with steps for each card design to coach my stampers.  First they stamped the sentiments.

Then the balloon strings.  Next come the stamped balloons in three colors.  They also stamped and punched out balloons in each cardstock color.  This is an exploded arrangement to see how it will come together.  Yes, that top balloon is practice stamping on the worksheet - not part of the card.

The Balloon Celebration stamp set and coordinating Balloon Bouquet punch are a fun combo


You can find these and a few more balloon styles at my online store.  Please use the hostess code below when your order is less than $150.  You can contact me with your order or shop online HERE.  Contact me if you would like the free tutorial sheet for this card.

Occasions & Sale-A-Bration 2017 Swaps #5

I apologize for the delay.  If you follow me on social media you probably know that we have had kids sick with influenza for the past week.  I am so behind in everything in life - because family comes first and taking care of my little girl is my highest priority.  Let's catch up!

Today's Team Swap was made by Lou Ann Scott.  She combined some really great products on this card.

The Sealed with Love stamp set goes so nicely with the Love Notes framelits - of course it is a bundle so you can save 10%! The Layering Squares framelits scallop looks stunning under the Stitched Shapes framelits.  Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack is the paper with patterns on the mini envelope, hearts and card bottom.  The embossing folder is called Falling Petals and looks wonderful as heart or flower petals.  This is a great Valentine's Day card and I hope you have enjoyed all these inspiring ideas for today's holiday!

Please remember that you can find all of these products in my online store.  Here is February's ordering information:

What are your creative plans for today to show love to your friends and family?  Please leave a comment for me.

Thank you for joining me today!

Occasions & Sale-A-Bration 2017 Swaps #4

It is Team Swaps Monday !  This cheerful Valentine is made by Carol Hepler.

This cute card uses the "Love Notes" framelits that coordinate in a bundles with the "Sealed with Love" stamp set.  The "Sending Love" Designer Series Paper stack makes a fun layer.  Embossing on the card front is from the "Happy Hearts" TIEF.  Do you see the "Stitched Shapes" framelits used on the whisper white square layer?  That stitched outline is such a lovely touch.  The "Decorative Label" punch with the bottom sentiment is a great tool for a quick shape.

Her Valentine has many special touches to show the receiver that they are special to her!

Cloud Nine

I love hot air balloons!  They are so peaceful in the whispery gushes of air as they float and meander the sky.

This is a simple birthday card from my birthday buffet class.  I wanted it to be suitable for any age and gender.

There are so many things you can make with this bundle.  I love the design ideas in this video. Four layouts that are super fun to use, flip, repeat, mix it up!

You can find many of the supplies below.  And you can get the Carried Away Designer Series Paper and Card Tin from Sale-A-Bration: select 1 free item for each $50 you order!
