Easter Bunny Treat Box!

Here is a cute little treat box for Easter. I made it with the Lots to Love Framelits Dies. They are one of the new die sets in the Occasions catalog. This die set is used for lots of different things besides the box it is made to make.
I found this idea on facebook from Monica Gale . She has some great ideas. I added the carrot and the feet to it. I also added the Jelly Beans on the inside and put some  acetate in the front to make a window out of it.
Anyone that comes to my class this coming Thursday the 22nd will get one of these little bunnies or if they place an order between now and the end of March. I do have limited supplies tho!
Happy Stamping!

Spring Class At Main St Today!

These are my cards for Main St Stamp and Stationary this afternoon. I am using dies from Tonic Studios. The one above is kind of dome shaped. It is a fun card and then I used the die flat on the bottom card. I have used some fun papers from Graphic 45 and the birdhouse die is from Memory Box.
Happy Stamping!

Orchid Builders Day 2!

Here is my second card using the Orchid Builder Bundle. I was inspired by a card I saw on Facebook but I didn't have the same supplies they had so I went with what I had.
Its kind of interesting when you leave home to stamp. At the retreat I had limited supplies to work with so I had to make do with what I had.
I used the new Simple Stripes Textured Empbossing Folder with Soft Sky Cardstock. Then the white is embossed with the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder that you can receive for free with a $100 order. It is a Sale A Bration item.
I colored my Gold Edged Ribbon with one of my blends. I just love coloring this ribbon. You can have any color you want. Use all the blends. If you want a color that doesn't have a blend, mix some re inker with alcohol and put it in a spritzer or even an empty Wink of Stella pen.
Speaking of Wink Of Stella, I used it on my orchids. You an really see the shimmer here but in real life it is shimmery. I stamped the flowers with Berry Burst and then colored them in with Wink of Stella making the ink run a little giving the flowers a pink look.
I used the Happy Birthday die with Gold Foil paper and put a strip of Bundle of Love Specialty paper across the back. I have used Pink Pirouette cardstock cut out with the Stitched Shape Framelits.
For a little bit of extra bling I added some Glitter Enamel dots!
Happy Stamping!

Orchid Builder #1

I bought this set awhile ago because there was a specific card I wanted to make. I cant remember what it was. I decided to take this bundle to the retreat with me last week and make something with it.
So I challenged myself to make three cards with it. This is one of them.
I used some of the Cake Soiree designer papers. I only had a few ink pads with me, so I swiped one out of a project kit and borrowed one. I also had all the new Stampin Spots. So that gave me enough to work with. That's the thing about packing for a crafting event. Its so hard to know what to bring.
I brought tons of stuff and didn't have everything I wanted!!
I had also thrown in the Lovely Words Thinlits and decided to use those also. I really liked how it turned out.
The ribbon is the Silver Edged Ribbon. I just love it and you can make it in lots of colors. I used the Old Olive Blend on this to make it a nice green to match the centers of the flowers and the leaves.
It is so gorgeous in every color I have tried with it!
I was really excited to read yesterday that it will be carried over to the new catalog!!
Happy Stamping!

Strawberry Pie!

I've seen a few cards with the pie. This is my version. Its really fun to make and no calories!!!
It is made with the new Basket Weave Embossing folder, which you can receive for free during Sale A Bration with a $100 order. This includes the Blossoming Basket stamp set. They come in a bundle.
I have also used the Stitched Shape Framelits and the Layering circles to make this pie.
Since I used the strawberry paper design from the Tutti Frutti paper pack I decided this is a strawberry pie!

Tutti Frutti Cards And Envelopes!

Here are three cards I made using the Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes from the Sale A Bration catalog. If you place a $50 order you can get these card bases and envelopes for free! (Envelopes are not shown here). I used the card bases on all three cards.
On the blue card I used the Friendships Sweetest Thoughts stamp set, the yellow card is made using a new Sale A Bration set that is available starting February 16th. At first I didn't really like this set but then I started casing the card right out of the new Sale A Bration catalog and decided I really like it.  I think that both the blue and the yellow card would make great Easter cards also!
The green card I cased from Pink Buckaroo Designs . She has some great ideas on her blog. It is made using another Sale A Bration stamp set called Beautiful Peacock.
If you would like to purchase any of these products you can order them thru my online store here .
Or you can just contact me to order. If ordering online please use hostess code 7KYRWZPK . If you are ordering more than $150 do not use the hostess code as you will receive full hostess benefits yourself!!

These are my projects for my next class coming up on February 8th. The first two cards are made using the Birthday Wit stamp set. Its a fun and little bit silly stamp set but I really like it. I have used the Bubbles and Fizz papers on one of the cards and the top card is using the Picture Perfect papers.
The bottom card is made using the Bubble Over Bundle. These are all fun to make!

On February 16th some new Sale A Bration items are coming out. There is a stamp set and a bundle with a stamp set and embossing folder that are all pretty cool! Also some a new paper pack!

I used these beautiful papers from Kaisercraft. I think they are perfect for this project.
This stationary box has 6 cards with envelopes, 4 little 3 x 3 notecards and 6 tags. Plus it has a little notepad and pen and a little pocket for a book of stamps!

Popcorn Style Box!

I made this box with the Lots to Love Framelits. There are lots of different uses for that little box die.
I love the old fashioned look of this box. Now I just need to find something to go in it that fits the look of the box!

Lots to Love Card Box!

These are the new Narrow White Notecards from the Occasions catalog. I made 4 of them to fit in the Lots to Love Box. I made the box with Pool Party and then decorated the front to match the cards. I don't have any greeting or sentiments on these but they could be personalized however you want them. This little box is easy and fun to make either with cardstock or some yummy designer series papers. I used the Perennial Birthday stamp set for this project, stamped with black ink and colored with Stampin Blends.
I made 4 notecards to fit in the box, no dimensionals just the bows and they just fit. I stamped the envelopes and add designer series papers to the flaps.
Happy Stamping!

Painted With Love Notecard Set!

Don't you just love these papers?? I sure do! These are the Painted With Love papers from the new Occasions catalog. I think they are gorgeous!!!
I made this notecard holder from a video I found on You Tube by SuNN Stampin. She has some great videos.
It has 4 note cards with envelopes. I has some of the gold inserts left over from Rockaway Retreat so I added them in the envelopes. I think they go great with the papers.
It has a magnetic clasp to hold it closed. The original was plain on the outside but whenever I use this paper I always seem to go to the Sunshine Wishes Die set. I am not sure why but I love it with these papers!
So if you would like to make this notecard set come to my class on January 25th and we will make it!!
Happy Stamping!

Here is a cute little project I found on Pinterest. It is just adorable. I made it with the Apron of Love Bundle.
It holds one hersey nugget. I think I will use it for a pillow gift at Leavenworth at the end of February. There are two dates for Leavenworth retreat this time. There is a weekday one and the original weekend one. If you are interested in going to a retreat you can find all the info at Crafty Person .
The retreats are really fun.

I made this card using the Apron of Love Bundle. Its a fun bundle, its also fun to combine it with the Crafting Forever stamp set. I used the scissors stamp and the sentiment from it on this card and everything else is from the Apron of Love set.
I don't make one layer cards very often but decided to give it a try. I am fairly please with how it turned out!
