The Very Best

This is the LAST day of Sale-a-bration!  Make sure you get your order in if you would like to take advantage of FREE stamp sets!

I am trying out a new (to me) stamp set on this card, it is called Wild about Flowers and is in the Catalog and Idea book. 

I used the Stripes impressions folder and ovals collection framelits  as well as the Ornate tag topper punch to get all my pieces together on this one.

You are...

As promised I have another sample using the A Nice Cuppa stamp set and again it is paired with the Cups and Kettles framelits.  This time, I used part of a Project Life card for one of my layers.  It comes from the Memories in the Making collection.

I added some lemons to the card after I cut it down to 3 3/4" x 5" and then added it to some Watermelon Wonder card stock.

A little bit of Corrugated paper and another half of the Tea lace paper doily completed the card.

Coffee and Cake

I did a little playing around with the A Nice Cuppa stamp set lately (I have another card to share Wednesday).  For this one, I paired it with the Balloon Celebration stamp set and Wildflower Fields designer series paper (SAB 2016).  Remember, this paper is soon no longer available!

I chose a Night of Navy card base before adding my die cuts and other elements and then added a piece of Whisper White to the inside.

A little more stamping and a little bit more of the designer series paper and it was completed.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter!  Wishing you all a wonderful day however you may celebrate.
For the Easter card I have to share with you today, I chose to use the Kinda Eclectic and Suite Sayings stamp sets.

I have added a piece of English Garden designer series paper behind the sentiment and cut the two corners of my Hello Honey layer with the Curvy Corner Trio punch.

Hip Hip Hooray

I was initially a hold out on the Party Pup-up thinlits dies, but I recently decided I wanted to give them a shot. So, this is the first creation made with them, using some Mint Macaron card stock that was embossed with the Large Polka Dots folder and then die cut.  

I added a couple Stampin' dimensionals behind the pop up part of the die cut to keep it up and then added some sequins.

Berry Baskets

Although these baskets aren't Easter themed, I thought I would share them before Easter because they could easily be adapted!  These were the make and take I shared with some friends last weekend, I gave them a few different options for card stock colors and designer series paper pieces.

On this one, I used the Apple of My Eye stamp set and cut out the apple before adding it to a 2" circle punched from some Bermuda Bay card stock.

For this one, I used the You're so Sweet stamp set and just used a paper snips to cut it out.

On the inside, I added some shred and candies that were in some cello bags.

Sweet Friend

A friend had some of these adorable little coffee cups in her store at the retreat and I had to buy a few to play with.  I actually took one apart to get a template for the designer series paper that is wrapped around this one.

I pulled out a stamp set I rarely use called Six Sided Sampler and my hexagon punch and quickly made a little tag that I placed on top of the designer series paper and the Pool Party glitter ribbon that I wrapped around the cup.

There will definitely be more of these in my future!

Flower Girl

Before I left for my scrapbook retreat last weekend, I tried to do a little picture organizing (tried being the operative word!).  I went through a big stack of pictures and made lists for the kids and asked them to go through their albums to see if those events were already in their books or not... It was actually a good way for them to spend a little time away from the electronics and they enjoyed looking through the albums (I guess I will have to try that again!).

This big event for Maddie was not in her book yet so it is one of the projects I put together over the weekend.  It was a very important day for her and everyone made her feel SO special.

I started with Mossy Meadow 12 x 12 card stock and added some Birthday Bouquet designer series paper.   
The photos are matted on Watermelon Wonder and I added some Metallic Glitter tape (SAB 2016), simply pressed clay blossoms, sequins and some flower trim I had dyed with some Pink Pirouette reinker.

The title is stamped with the Layered Letters alphabet stamp set.

What I Love...again

Since I used the What I Love (SAB 2016) stamp set on a project yesterday I thought I would share the video that Stampin' Up! put together about it.  

I just had another super fun weekend stamping and scrapbooking retreat where I put together lots of projects that I will share with you soon, but thought I would take a day off from samples to share the video today - hope you love it!

What I Love

Today's card is another simple one and has been used in my Stamp A Stack rotation for a little while.  It uses the Sale-a-bration stamp set called What I Love.  The stamp set has 3 layers for the flowers and I used Watermelon Wonder, Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette for those colors.

Oh, Hello

I have to say that the stamp set I used on this simple card is really one of my least favorites in the Sale-a-bration flyer.  There is no special reason why, it just doesn't speak to me, LOL!  

I simply used a Whisper White card base and stamped my sentiment and chick on it and then stamped the chick on a scrap paper and colored it with markers and cut it out.  It is added to the card base with Stampin' dimensionals.

They Say...

I really like the patterns in the Wildflower Fields designer series paper (SAB 2016) as well as the color combinations - Basic Black, Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Old Olive and Whisper White...

For this card, I chose one of the patterns and went with the colors that are in it.  I added some balloons on my piece of Whisper White by using the Balloon Celebration stamp set.  The sentiment is stamped with the Suite Sayings set and punched out with the Note tag punch.

Titan Basketball

This is another layout that comes a year or so after the fact, LOL!  I tried to tie in the team colors and used some Silver foil sheets, Project Life pieces and Color me irresistible specialty paper.

There is nothing fancy about the layout or the elements, but I do like the way it turned out.
