Catalog Post Its!

When we went to Onstage in April they gave these cute little post it note holders and I thought how fun it would be to make them for customers. But they were like three or four folds. I can't remember which. I was worried that they would cost a lot. 
But then I decided to try and make my own and this is what I came up with. I thought they would be adorable to give with the catalogs or just as customer appreciation gifts.
They are really easy to make and this way they can make notes or mark pages in the new catalog going live NEXT week!!!
I am so excited! I just can't wait to order out of the catalog! Yes I have pre ordered out of it but just selected items and not the things I am DYING to get my hands on!
I may have to expedite the shipping but haven't decided yet since that costs quite a bit!
Anyway, (sorry, I got distracted!!), for this cute little project, I used the new Crafting Forever stamp set,  and Pick a Pattern designer papers.
I also used some linen thread and those cute little paper clips that are being discontinued. I better hurry and order some more, I hope they aren't already gone!!
Happy Stamping!

Best Birds!

I was having fun playing with the Best Birds Stamp set and dies again. I also used lots of new products. The paper is from Color Theory DSP. The branches the birds are sitting on are from the Lovely Laurel Thinlits and so are the little decorative punches on the sentiment. Which the sentiment is also punched out with the new Pretty Label punch and the ribbon is a new ribbon also. The little flowers are stamped and cut out with the Birds and Blooms thinlits, then colored with Water Color Pencils using a Wink of Stella. I then added some Glitter enamel dots.
I love the little family of birds.
Happy Stamping!

Lovely Friends!

Here is a card that we saw done at Onstage in San Diego. But I changed it up a little bit to add my own touches. The laurel branches and the banner in the center are kind of floating there and pop up when you open the card.
I made this card with the Lovely Friends bundle. I also used the new border punch again called the Ticket Tear Border Punch. I think it adds a fun touch.
Happy Stamping!

Hello Friend!

Well, here is another card with no ribbon and this one designer papers. I will be so glad when June 1st gets here so I can order some STUFF!!!
I used Lemon Lime Twist, Flirty Flamingo and Basic Black for this card. I really like the Lemon Lime Twist and Flirty Flamingo together. For some reason when I see the two colors together I think they look more like neon colors then they really are.
I used the Lovely Words Thinlit dies again and also the Better Together stamp set. There is one little advantage to not having all the matching things. It makes me think outside the box which is definitely not one of my specialties!
Happy Stamping!

Freshly Made Sketch Challenge!

I made this card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week. I decided to turn the sketch sideways for my card.
 I used the Lovely Words Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits and Circle Shapes for the dies. Also the new Ticket Tear Border Punch. I am so glad there are two border punches in the new catalog. I have really missed having border punches.
There is also a die in the Seasonal Layers Thinlits you could use as a border also.

Of course I didnt think I wanted the stamp set that goes with the Lovely Words Thinlits so I used a phrase from the Weather Together stamp set which will also be carried over to the new catalog.

Since I ran out of Lemon Lime Twist ribbon already I didnt use ribbon for this card but I think it is okay without it.

For the dsp on this card I used the Eastern Palace DSP which you can get in a big bundle this month. You get the stamps, dies, dsp. You can even get three of the new incisors!!! And much more!

I love that the Lovely Words Thinlits pair up with the other dies!!

Happy Stamping!

Sketch Saturday Challenge #452

This card was made for the challenge at Sketch Saturday . I used some new Stampin Up products for this card. Actually all new products! Three new in colors, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig. The ribbon is one of the new in colors ribbons also. Its funny I had used all of my new ribbons on a project for my Catalog Premier Extravaganza coming up, except I got one length of ribbon wrong and got two left over pieces that were the perfect size for this bow.
My card is also using the Color Theory Dsp, Glitter Enamel dots (one of my favorite new products), and the Lovely Friends stamp set and dies.
Happy Stamping!

Best Birds!

I finally got to use this set! It was my free set when I went to the Leavenworth retreat! I purchased the matching dies for it also. It is a very fun set. I colored it with my SU watercolor pencils and Wink of Stella.
I wanted to make a card that is with current products but products that will also carry over to the new catalog.
This card was made using the Creative Challenge sketch on Facebook for the Crafty Person Inspiration Club-Crafty Person Stampin Up Team!

Birthday Banner!

Here is my birthday banner for my class coming up in June. It has 16 panels so it is a fairly big banner. It could be made into two smaller banners if someone has shelves to put it on or a small table.
I used the new Delightful Daisy DSP coming out in the new catty next month. I love these papers.
Its hard to get a closer view of the banner because it is so long!

San Diego was awesome. We got to see some great new products coming out in the new Catalog in June. Also got to bring some home with us and pre pre order some products!!

Swirly Scribbles Easter Card!

I thought I was done making Easter cards and then found this card on Pinterest . It is so cute. I just loved it and decided I had to make some. I changed mine up just a little.
I love the Swirly Scribbles die set. It is so versatile, it seems like you can use it for every holiday.
I did it in two colors. Sweet Sugarplum and Pool Party. I didnt have enough Pool Party for all of them so thats why I went with two colors. I also used the Basket Builders Framelits for the grass and eggs.
I used the Sale A Bration glimmer paper for two of the eggs and Blushing Bride glimmer paper for the other one.

Easter Treat!

I made these cute little Easter Candy boxes. I found something like it on Pinterest and this is my version of it. The sentiment is actually the tip of the box. I sure love this little Easter bundle. It is so easy to work with and fun. All the images are from this stamp and die set. I spent quite a few hours in the last few days with this set working on the Easter class for tomorrow.
Everyone that comes to my Easter class is going to get one of these cute little Easter treats!

Easter Flowers!

This is one of the cards we will be doing at the Easter Class on March 23rd. I saw a card on pinterest that you can see here and it gave me the idea for this card. Her card was a totally different layout but so beautiful!
 I used the So Succulent bundle for the flowers and a die from the Detailed Floral Thinlits for the sides of the cards. The sentiment if from Suite Sentiments stamp set. I have also used the yummy new  glimmer papers that are only available until the end of this month as a Sale A Bration set. They are gorgeous. They are 6 x 6 and come in three awesome colors. You can get them free with a $50 order.
If you would like to get these gorgeous papers for free, leave me a comment to place an order or go to my online store to place an order!!

Bella & Friends!

I was just saying the other day that I haven't used this set yet and I have someone that keeps asking me for dog cards. So I decided to use it. This is Bella & Friends and it comes out of the main catalog. I saw a tag I liked in the catalog and decided to go with the layout of it for my card.
I had fun coloring this cute little dog. I used the new watercolor pencils and a clear Wink of Stella.  The Wink of Stella blended so smoothly with the watercolor pencils. I haven't been a fan of watercolor pencils in the past but I really liked using them this way!

Nailed It!

When I saw this card done in pink I just knew I had to case it! The original card came from Debbies Designs . She has some adorable cards. I changed it up just a teeny! This card was made with the Nailed It bundle. Comes with stamps and dies and if you also order the Hexagon Embossing Folder you would be eligible for one of the free Sale A Bration sets.
Free is always good!
