Celebrate Scrapbook Page

Although I know I should do more, I don't do much scrapbooking. But when I do, it is EXTREMELY simple and 6" X 6". Here is a page I made for a workshop a while back. It was inspired by these pages. I like the way it came out. Now I just need to add some pictures!

This page uses the Celebrate Everything stamp set. This set is retiring and will no longer be available after today. It's a great set, though, and I will probably still use it on many things.

Click here if you'd like to place a last minute order before this year's catalog is retired!

Hi Everyone! I love looking at other people's creations and then using what I have in my stash to put my own twist on it. Here is my 'girl' version of the baby bib card. Next, I'll show you the 'boy' version. I was inspired by the bib card here. This card was SO easy with the Big Shot!

Blogging is hard work!

Wow! I have to say that I am very impressed with the people who's blogs I follow that can post everyday. I've found that to be a little harder than I expected. It's most likely because it's summer and I've been doing so much running around. I had hoped to post at least 3 times a week, if not more. We'll see!
This card is one that I CASEd (copy and show everyone) from Dawn, again. Get used to it! I love her work - she inspires me a ton! I used different stamps & accessories, but you can definitely see where the inspiration came from...

The trick for stamping the flowers is to ink up the entire stamp with Pretty In Pink, remove the ink from the stems with a Blender Pen and then use a Sage Shadow marker to add the ink to the stems. Huff on the entire image and then stamp it! What a nifty little trick I learned at convention a few years ago.

Gift Card Holder

I've been a blog lurker for a few years now. I really appreciate all of the ideas that people post online as they have helped spark my creativity so much. I have a few blogs that I visit on a daily basis and here is one (of many) projects that I've made that was inspired by someone else. Dawn has a video (thank you!) on how to make this easy gift card holder. I loved the concept and just changed the embellishments.
I didn't do much decorating on the inside, but it would definitely be nice with a sentiment and some sponging. I did this for a workshop and just had time to decorate the outside. You can't see it too well in the picture, but the "Birthday Wishes" is stamped using Shimmer Mist mixed with a few drops of classic ink refill and then applied to the stamp using a sponge dauber. I sponged the smaller Pretties flower using a sponge and the Lavender Lace ink pad.
Paper: Lavender Lace, Whisper White
Stamps: Sincere Salutations
Inks: Lavender Lace refill/ Champagne Shimmer Mist
Punches: Scallop Trim Border
Accessories: Pretties,

Vintage Vogue Tea Bag Holder

I love getting FREE stamp sets! I got the Vintage Vogue stamp set in January at the Phoenix Regional Seminar. I had a blast meeting up with Stampin' friends that I've made over the past few years and I'm looking forward to seeing them again at Convention this year.
After I received this set, I wasn't exactly sure what to do with it since it is not quite 'my style'. But after using it on several different projects along with seeing what else can be done with it, I'm starting to love it. And did I mention it was FREE?
If you're interested in becoming a demonstrator, NOW is the time!

Graduation Card Money Holder

Sorry for the long delay! I didn't have much computer access over the last week.
I made this card for my cousin who recently graduated from college. I loved that it fit perfectly in Stampin' Up!s small open ended envelopes. I actually started with the measurements of the envelopes (6 3/4" X 3 1/2") and worked backwards to determine the measurements of each piece of cardstock while making sure it could still hold the money. You can't see it real well in the picture, but there is a 6 1/2" X 3 1/4" piece of Night of Navy cardstock behind the Whisper White tri-fold.
Stamps: Celebrate Everything
Papers: Night of Navy, Whisper White
Inks: Night of Navy
Punches: Scallop Circle, 1-3/8" Circle, Scallop Edge, 3/16" corner rounder
Big Shot, Serif Essentials Alphabet, Paper-piercing tool

Mother's Day Gifts

These are the projects I did in a Mother's Day Class a few weeks ago. It really was simple to make and I was super happy with the results. I started with an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of Creamy Caramel and the flower pot directions HERE but did a somewhat simplified version. It was easy using the Big Shot and the Flower Folds die. I used the leftover Creamy Caramel and made the triangle box. I love it when I have no cardstock wasted! I went a little crazy with the shimmer mist/alcohol mixture, too.

Paper: Creamy Caramel, So Saffron, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Always Artichoke
Stamps: Well Scripted
Inks: Regal Rose
Punches: Scallop Edge Punch, 1" circle punch, Large Oval Punch
