Pretties Kit

DOstampers Make & Takes

Laurie shared this really cute gift card purse card at the last DOstampers meeting.  Ain't it cute?


Supplies:  Big Pieces stamp set, Cutie Pie DSP, Whisper White, Certainly Celery cardstock, Bashful Blue Cardstock & Ink, 1 3/8" Circle, Scallop & Word Window Punches, Celery Grosgrain Ribbon, Clear Rhinestone Brad (from Pretties Kit) 


The 2nd make & take was a take-off from Leadership this past January.  The cute little tri-fold card is so quick and easy.  The clever part of this card is the way the front tucks under the ribbon.

Leadership Flower Fusion Projects

As some of you know - I was fortunate enough to attend the Stampin' Up! Leadership conference in Palm Springs in January.  I had an awesome time learning new creative techniques and making new friends.  Over the next couple of weeks I'll share some of the awesome samples that were on display. 

Here are a few showcasing Flower Fusion Accents & Elements, and Bali Breeze Designer Series Paper.

Card also showcases the new Fine Cosmo Glitter!


Binder Clip Display Board - also showcases Pretties Kit


Isn't this a cute Scrapbook page.  She put her journaling into "fortunes".  How clever!

February's Scrapbook Club Project-Squash Book

Don't you just love the Berry Bliss Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!?  Didn't this Squash Book Mini Album turn out adorable?  My Scrapbook Club Members thought so!  See below for some basic instructions:


Fold three 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 pieces of cardstock as shown below:

  • Fold in half
  • Open and fold in half (in the opposite direction)
  • Open and fold in half diagonally (corner to corner)
  • How-to video for the folding


Assemble them together as shown below:


Decorate as shown below:




Then add Berry Bliss Designer Series Paper to a couple of coasters and adhere them to your book.  Decorate with the "One of a Kind" & "Boho Backgrounds" stamp sets, punches (Scallop, 1 1/4 & 1 3/8 circles, Boho Blossoms), a half-back pearl from the Pretties Kit and some of the beautiful Purely Pomegranate Double Stitched Ribbon.   Now just add pictures!

Rescued Tin = Beautiful Gift

OK - here it is...the rescued tin.  I have a customer who's husband was going to throw the tin away.  Sandy rescued it and gave to me.  I guess most of my customers know of my affinity with altering tins!  My best friend, Pam's birthday was fast approaching so I decorated it for her and added some cards/envelopes (which fit perfectly inside the tin).


Here's the newly re-purposed tin.  What do you think?


Ain't it gorgeous?  It's based on the card in yesterday's post.  Though I added Crystal Effects to the small blossoms.  Below you can see the CE on the flowers.  Pam loved it!



My Favorite Embrace Life Sample #3

I think this is my favorite sample of the Embrace Life stamp set.  I love the stamping on the Ginger Blossom DSP layer.  If you look close, the black "fern-like" images are actually stamped on the DSP.  I saw this idea on Splitcoaststampers (great place for creative ideas).  This card was fun to watercolor too.  Plus I added a bit of bling with a clear rhinestone brad from the awesome "Pretties Kit".

Watch for my next post.  It will feature a similiar design on a discarded tin that one of my customers rescued for me - thanks Sandy!
