I Love Our Life Together

Flirty Flamingo; how I need to use this color more!  Especially when you can combine it with free product from Saleabration!  I used the Grapefruit Grove foil sheets which I earned for free with a $50 product order.  Just a hint of foil paper under the All My Love Designer Series Paper teamed up with the die cut heart from Sunshine Wishes is striking.

 8 single-sided sheets: 4 sheets Grapefruit Grove, 4 sheets Lovely Lipstick
* 12" x 12" (30.5 x 30.5 cm)
* Acid free 
* Lignin free

Here are the dimensions to re-create this card:

Flirty Flamingo card base cut 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2
All My Love Designer Series paper cut 4 1/4 x 3
All My Love Designer Series paper cut 1/2 x 4 1/4 for inside panel
Grapefruit Grove Foil sheet (2 pieces) cut 1/2 x 4 1/2
Grapefruit Grove Foil sheet for the heart from Sunshine Wishes
Whisper White panel for inside cut 4 x 5 1/4
Whisper White scrap for the die cut banner from Stitched Labels
Flirty Flamingo scrap for the stitched square

The stitched square in Flirty Flamingo sets the heart aside and ties it all together as well.

I used the Stitched Labels framelits banner and trimmed it down to a size that did not make the banner appear to be too heavy.  I also set the banner to the right side so it did not cover up the shine of the foil sheets.

The Pearl Jewels are added to the top and bottom of the card at opposite ends and one small pearl is added to the banner on the left side.  Another goal of mine for 2019 is use what I have.  So if you have embellishments, rhinestones, jewels that you haven’t used and are hoarding, add them to a project.  I’m hoping my bin is empty at the end of the year.  I’ve got a long ways to go but am determined to reach that goal of using up my stash.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card.  Let me know by leaving a comment in the box below.

Craft Fair 2019 Series Episode 1

One of my goals for 2019 is to share some of my Craft Fair Projects.  Today I'm sharing my first post for 2019.  We will make mini post-it note holders.  I have found these really successful year after year.  For 2019, I have completed over 300 of these holders!  Yes that's quite a bit.  I like to use up my pretty paper along with scraps of card stock that is too small for card projects.  This is a great product to use up your stash.  It's also a great teacher, co-worker, bus driver, or a gift to whoever is on your list.  I like to leave these on my co-workers desks as a nice little surprise.

You can get 14 holders out of one 12 x 12 sheet of pretty paper.

Cut your 12x12 paper 5 x 12; you will get two of these.  Then cut the remain strip 2 x 5 twice.  There is a small scrap that is left which I save to use to create magnets.

Your score lines are 1 1/8, 1 1/2, 3, 3 1/2 along the 5" side.  My only caution is if you have a directional pattern you just need to remember to cut your paper the correct way.

Once you have everything cut and scored, just fold along each score line with your fingers.  It's not necessary to use a bone folder; your fingers will do all the work for you.
Add tear tape on the backside of the sticky note and then adhere to the pretty paper along the score line (check out my video below so you can see in detail).
Once you have the sticky note in place, add the Velcro circle to the smaller section and then fold down and secure.

Stamp an image on Whisper White card stock and punch out with the 1" circle punch.
Punch out a coordinating piece of card stock with the 1 1/4" circle punch and then adhere these two together.

I use my ATG tape runner to add adhesive to the backside of the circle.  It's quick and easy for me to do this.  If you do not have ATG, then tear tape will also work but it's a bit slower.

Add the circle to the top section and press down.

For the sticky notes and Velcro, I purchase them at  ATG is purchased locally wherever I can use a discount coupon.

The remaining supplies can be found on my online store by clicking here.
For step by step instructions, please click on my YouTube video below.



I hope you enjoy my Craft Fair 2019 Series.  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you would like me to make.
Happy Stamping and creating!

Valentine's Treat Bag Using All My Love Suite

Here's a quick and simple treat that you can make with just a few supplies from All My Love Suite.  I used the Meant to Be Bundle along with some of the paper from All My Love.
Here are the dimensions of the paper:
Whisper White cut 5 x 4 and scored at 2
All My Love Designer Series Paper cut 5 x 1 3/4 and another coordinating piece cut 5 x 1/2
You will also need a scrap of Lovely Lipstick for the Starburst Circle and stitched heart and a piece of Whisper White for stamping.
I used Lovely Lipstick ink for stamping.  The bags are from  but you can also use the clear envelopes from my online store as well.  The item number is 102619.

When I mass product products to sell or for gift giving, I love the ease of a punch!  It's super quick.  The treat bag uses the Starburst punch along with the 1 3/4 inch circle punch.

 Here's the treat bag with a mixture of candies.

The stitched heart with the pearl makes a cute embellishment.

Meant To Be from Occasions Catalog 2019

I'm starting to play with some of the products from the Occasions catalog and Saleabration brochure.  In today's card, I use products from both.  I created a #simplestamping card, which will be one of the cards offered at my January 30th card making workshop.  It's a three tiered card with pretty paper and ribbon and a bit of sparkle with rhinestone accents.  It's "meant to be" a Valentine's Day card, but a simple change of the sentiment can turn it into a birthday or Just Because card as well.
Here are the dimensions you need to create the card.
Crumb Cake card base cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
Early Espresso cut 4 5/8 x 3 1/4
All My Love Designer Series paper (3 panels) cut 1 3/8 x 3
Whisper White panel for inside cut 4 x 5 1/4
All My Love Designer Series paper cut 1/2 x 5 1/4 for inside
Lovely Lipstick scrap for the flowers
Whisper White scrap for sentiment
Early Espresso scrap for Starburst circle
I love how you can see the paper through the Organza ribbon.  

Here is a closeup of the Organza ribbon you can select from Salebration.  A $50 product order is all you need.

And who doesn't like our pretty paper?  The All My Love Designer Series paper will work great with your Valentines Day card making projects.

Here's a close up of the ribbon and how you can see the paper right through the ribbon.

Spotlight on All My Love Suite from Stampin' Up!

The All My Love Suite from the 2019 Occasions catalog is by far my favorite.  Forever Lovely and Meant to Be can be bundled with their coordinating framelits.  You save ten percent when purchasing as bundles.  The suite can be located on pages 4-6 of the catalog.  Take your time reviewing this suite as there is so much product that it's easy to miss some.  You may get overwhelmed by the beauty.

Here is a short video that covers All My Love Suite:
