Lovely Lace Wedding

Hello!  This is my last wedding card of the summer.  I made this one for my cousin Kathleen.  I actually was inspired by a DOstamperSTARS challenge, a couple of months ago, that I was not able to participate in because of my knee surgery.

I cut the embossed layer down to 3 3/4" x 5" then ran it through my Big Shot with the smallest of the Oval Framelits.  Next, I put the piece into the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder and ran it through my Texture Boutique Machine.  I didn't have a gold stamping pad so I used my Gold Stampin' Dazzle Marker on the stamp. It worked just fine in a pinch!

Stamp Set:  Label Love
Ink:  Gold Stampin' Dazzle Marker
Paper:  Whisper White, Gold (retired)
Big Shot:  Ovals Framelits Dies, Lovely Lace Embossing Folder
Punch:  Boho Blossoms
Extras:  Pearl Basic Jewels

Hi!  Today is the day that the new Holiday Catalog launches.  This really has to be the best one yet!  lol  I know I say that all the time, but I really mean it.  They have some great little gift bags and boxes, new Framelits and of course terrific stamp sets.  Take a look here.

Endless Wishes Petite Cafe' Gift Bag

Hi!  I love these new poly-lined (food safe) Petite Cafe' Gift Bags!!!  They are so fun to decorate and will be perfect to hold holiday gifts.
The bags measure 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 8" and you get 10 for $5.95.  I used White Craft ink and the Endless Wishes stamp set to decorate the bang and the tag.
The tag base is made using a sheet from the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack.  I punched it out with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.  I stamped with Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow inks.

Kinda Eclectic Mini Notebook

Hello!  I had a couple of people ask me how I made the mini notebook I shared on Thursday's blog posting so I thought I'd make a tutorial so you can see how easy it really was.
First, I removed the spiral wire from the notebook. (I used a needle-nose pliers to straighten out the end that was twisted in.)  Next, I cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock 4" x 6" and applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue to one side. Then I placed it on top of the notebook cover and pressed firmly.  You could use a Bone Folder too.
I used my Paper Snips to cut off the square corners. The next thing I did was to take my 1/8" paper punch and punch out the holes in the card stock using the original cover as my guide.   I stamped the cover before putting the notebook back together, this way the wire doesn't get in the way of stamping!  I used the Kinda Eclectic stamp set with Crumb Cake and Blackberry Bliss inks. Here's the finished notebook.  I punched out a Blackberry Bliss butterfly…


Hello!  Loved the colors in this weeks challenge.  I decided to use the 2014-2016 In Colors for my project. So, I found these great 4 x 6 inch 50 page notebooks at Walgreens this week 7/$1.00.  What a deal!  Just couldn't pass that up, and they are so fun to decorate!  I cut a piece of Lost Lagoon card stock the same size as the cover and used my Multipurpose Liquid glue to attach it.  Then I stamped it with a couple of stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set using Mossy Meadow and Lost Lagooon ink.  Next, I used Chocolate Chip, Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist inks with my new Fall Fest stamp set.  Look how nice they are cut out...that's because this set has matching Framelits!!!!  Yep, they're called Fun Fall Framelits Dies, boy do they save a lot of cutting time.  I used the Liquid Glue to attach these as well.
Here's a close up, I took three strips of Linen Thread, tied them into a bow and glued it onto the leaves.  This project took me all of 10 minutes, super qui…

Just Because Tiny Treat Box

Hello!  Well, it's been awhile, but I finally got a little stamping done.  I love, love, love these Tiny Treat Boxes that are in the new Holiday Catalog.  They are only 2" x 2" x 2" and the decorating possibilities are endless!  Hopefully you'll be seeing quite a few of these on my blog.  They are a nice size for putting little candy treats in.
First, I used my Dots Stamping Mask and my White Craft Stampin' Ink Pad to decorate the box.   Next, I decorated the top using the Flower Patch stamp set and coordinating Flower Fair Framelits.
Supplies Stamp Set:  Flower Patch, And Many More Ink:  Wild Wasabi, Calypso Coral, Whisper White Craft Paper:  Whisper White Big Shot:  Flower Fair Framelits Punch:  Word Window Extras:  Glue Dots, Tiny Treat Boxes, Sponge Dauber, Dots Stamping Mask
Thanks a lot for stopping by.  I really am hoping to get out of this stamping slump I am in so I can show you the great new products in the Holiday Catalog.


Hello!  This weeks challenge was a color one.  Here's the card that I made for my brother-in-laws 70th birthday.
I used the Banners Framelits and my Big Shot machine to make the banners.  The speckles on the Tempting Turquoise layer were stamped with a stamp from the Work of Art set.
