Happy Birthday Gorgeous Part 2

I like this new thinlit. The Happy Birthday Gorgeous thinlit is fantastic.  It's large enough to take up the majority of your card front but versatile enough for you to create behind and around it.  I had to try a pop up type card with the new in colors and some of the Party Animal embellishments.  You'll notice the honeycomb balloon embellishment that's from the Birthday Delivery suite.  These balloons are just like the circles in previous catalogs, that kept selling out, and they come in 3 colors.  Love them too. 

I know you will want to make some of these new supplies yours and if you're interested in shopping I invite you to go to the Shop Now section of my site.  It will directly link you to Stampin Up! where you can purchase these wonderful products.  Tomorrow is the day we've all been waiting for, the new catalog is in effect.  You'll be able to order all of these products by midnight tonight so happy shopping and as always happy crafting!


Apples for Teachers

I was trying to come up with something cute for my daughter's teachers for the end of this school year.  She's a middle schooler and so she has several teachers that she would like to thank.  One of my favorite boxes is the Curvy Keepsake Box by Stampin Up!  You can make several with ease and they are just precious!!!  I filled these with Dove Chocolates.

These little apples came to mind so I let my creative juices flow and wala this is what I got.  I used the Wood Words stamp for the greeting "Thanks a Bunch" and I used Cucumber Crush to match the ribbon.  I did purchase the ribbon from a wholesale store but you can find similar products at Hobby Lobby and JoAnn's fabrics and maybe even Micheals. 

If you would like directions for these cute little apples please message me and I'll get them to you right away.  If you need a Curvy Keepsake die for yourself please feel free to use the Shop Now section of my site it goes directly to Stampin Up! and you can purchase right from there. 

Happy Crafting!


Happy Birthday Gorgeous!

I wanted to use some of the new in colors from Stampin Up! So I began playing around with my tools and the new Happy Birthday Gorgeous set.  I love the size of this thinlit and the font.  It's a real show stopper for any card or package.  This new color combo is stunning it's Tranquil Tide and Berry Burst and together they are wonderful!  I did use some older DSP that is the gold stripe, I had some laying around and it felt like a good match.  I also used the older In Color sequin embellishments and they matched well, I was surprised.  I also used the new Birthday Delivery paper and thinlits to create the hat and the balloon.  That set is over the top cute!  I can't wait for you to get your hands on these new products!

If you are in need of a demonstrator I welcome the opportunity to help out.  You can do your shopping on line here in my shop and I do host monthly card making classes if your in the area and interested in attending.  We can even do virtual classes if you're not in the immediate area.  Send me a message and we can talk about all of our options.   I look forward to connecting with you!

Birthday Delivery New Set from Stampin Up!

This is a throw back set that can be used in a variety of different ways.  The paper alone is worth buying, and the framelits set because there is something very special about this combination (framelits and paper)... you can actually cut out the characters out from the paper with the framelits!!!  Oh wow it's fantastic and you can create all kinds of different cards and birthday pieces. 

The coordinating ribbon is also wonderful but is unfortunately on backorder at the moment.  Hopefully that will come in soon and we can play with it too!

So I created this little crate from the Wood Words Suite and put mini, itty bitty, baby Golden Books in the crate for a package set!  These are 3"x3" mini cards and I was able to use the brand new balloon embellishments on the doggie card.  They just introduced these balloon embellishments at On Stage as well and I'm going to use them everywhere so expect to see them again. 

All of these amazing pieces will be available on Thursday and never fear you can shop right here!  Just click the Shop Now button on my site and it will take you straight to ordering from Stampin Up!.  If you are in need of a demonstrator please consider using me I am eager and happy to help in any way I can!

Happy crafting!


Wood Words Barn Card

Can you say shiplap and Chip and Joanna Gains?  Everytime I watch their show I see some kind of barn wood that I fall in love with.  This brand new set is wonderful!  Can you tell I've been playing with the new Wood Words set from Stampin Up!? I can't help it, I love the whole barnyard homey feeling I get when I put ink to paper while using this set, browns and neutrals are wonderful with their rustic feel. I should have done the wood stamp over the crumb cake "wood" for the barn but you can do one and then send me a pic.  I would love to see what you create!

Here is my latest creation using the Wood Words set.  I thought a barn door was appropriate with that little rooster sitting a top the roof. 

You can purchase this set on Thursday of this week yay!!!  It will be available in the Shop Now section of my site then.  Below are the supplies needed and if you would like instructions please send me a message and I'll get them out right away!
