Twice the Fun…

Recently a friend of mine became a grandmother for the first time…with TWINS!

We have all enjoyed waiting with her for the arrival…which happened this past weekend six weeks early.  Both babies are doing well and she is beyond words excited to welcome this little girl and boy to her world.

To celebrate their arrival I will be giving her this frame to proudly display their first pictures…

This frame will hold three 4″ x 6″ photos, but I chose to add their names to the center panel.

Their cute little names were cut from Designer Series Paper Birthday Memories with the Little Letters Framelits Dies.

This little retro “cutie” was cut from the same DSP using a framelit for her…

And this little foxy friend carrying his welcoming banner was also cut from the same DSP with a framelit.

This was a fun project completed in an afternoon thinking how amazing it will be to bring home two little babies.  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper, Thick Whisper White Cardstock plus Water Color Paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Birthday Delivery, Lovely Friends
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Little Letters Framelits, Birthday Friends Framelits, Blue & Pink water colors, Large Round Brush, Journaling Pen and frame from Big Box Store

Digits

  • Cut letters for name from DSP and another set from Thick Whisper White Cardstock and glue together with multipurpose glue.
  • The water color paper was cut to fit inside the center panel.  Wet one half of paper with water and apply water color.  Let the paper do most of the work for you.  Don’t worry about making the color solid.  A little variation in color is more interesting.  Once this half is dry repeat for the second color.  Let this dry completely before working with it.
  • Draw placement line for name (and maybe a date if you aren’t having twins) and add letter/numbers with multipurpose glue.  Stamp in center is from Lovely Friends.  I selectively inked just the “and” from one of the stamps and used the scroll from another.
  • Cut a set of balloons from DSP (just the balloons) and add to this panel.  Draw strings with a black journaling pen.  This panel was glued inside the center panel.  I then reinserted the piece of paper that came with the frame.  I would have cut a piece of cardstock, but it would have taken a 12 x 12 piece of Whisper White cardstock and I didn’t one…
  • The little girl, fox and banner were cut from the DSP using coordinating framelits.  Also cut the same images from Thick Whisper White Cardstock and glue together.  Fussy cut a set of balloons including strings from DSP.  Glue this cutout to a piece of Thick Whisper White with multipurpose glue and “fussy cut” .
  • Add all of these pieces to the frame front with Strip Adhesive.

Hope this post inspires you to create some home décor as a gift or for your own home.

My Mother’s Day weekend was filled with flowers…

Aren’t they gorgeous?  And babies…

A really special day…hope yours was too!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

Dedicated to those of us who have lost our moms…

Come get inky with me…Be HaPpY!

Surprise Post…

Today’s post happened completely unplanned…While sitting and going over my sketches and deciding on what DSP and color combinations to use, I was simultaneously opening the last piece of chewing gum from a box pack when BOOM! the box caught my attention.  My attention span is super limited!

The box started looking like a business card holder to me…which would probably only occur to me, but hey, look what came from that idea…

Here’s the box unglued…

Does that look like a business card holder to you?   Stay with me here…

Here the box has been glued with multipurpose glue to the new Fresh Floral DSP in Lemon Lime Twist.  Cut around the box with snips.

Glue a piece of coordinating DSP to what was the dark green area of the inside of the box and trim around the box again.  Can you see it yet?

More multipurpose glue was added to the flaps and then folded up the box and just held it in place for a bit.

Add your business cards and maybe a little bling…

All ready!  These would make a sweet gift for your downline that has decided to take their demonstratorship to a business level!  I love this new green but I can totally see this in that Berry Burst too!

If you have any questions or comments, let me know.  There really isn’t a Stuff ‘N Digits for this project, but once that idea jumped in my head…everything else left!

Thanks for stopping by today…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

just another reason why so many cute shoes are necessary.

Get inky…Be HaPpY!

Daisy Gift Bag…

Today’s post is another gift idea that would work for most occasions (just in case you get caught behind the ball rather than on it).  This would be the perfect gift bag to have on hand…

How pretty is that paper?  This bag is 3-3/4″ wide, 2″ deep and 9″ tall…

Glamour close up…

Side view showing embellishments.

You could definitely make this bag 12″ tall, but I used the extra DSP to make that border which is actually the flip side of this paper in the new Incolor, Tranquil Tide.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Tranquil Tide Cardstock, plus Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Tranquil Tide and Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Delightful Daisy and Label Me Pretty
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Gift Bag Punch Board, Hole Punch, Delightful Daisy Punch, Pretty Label Punch, Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and 5/8″ Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon and Linen Thread

Digits

  • Cut DSP 9″ on one side.  Follow directions on Gift Bag Punch Board for Large Bag.  Fold on all score lines and attach with Tear Tape or Fast Fuze.
  • Using Scallop Framelit from Seasonal Layers Thinlits cut one side of the 3″ piece you cut away from 12″ DSP paper.  Attach to top of gift bag with Tear Tape and score on existing score lines.
  • Punch two holes at top to thread ribbon through and tie in a knot.  Trim ends.
  • Stamp two daisies on scrap Thick Whisper White CS in Tranquil Tide and punch out with Delightful Daisy Punch.  Curl petals using bone folder.  Attach flowers with dimensional being sure to rotate the petals.  Add to bag with dimensionals.
  • Stamp border (Archival Basic Black) and sentiment (Tranquil Tide) on scrap Thick Whisper White.  Trim close to border with snips.  Punch another label from Tranquil Tide CS, punch both layers with small circle punch then layer together with dimensionals.  Thread with Linen Thread and loop around daisy.

Think I’ll go back through my DSP stash that is retiring and make up some of these bags to have on hand…

Today Sweetums and I are winging our way to New York City to meet up with our son’s family and surprise Lyla for her tenth birthday.  Our flight this morning was at 5:45 a.m.!  And I know we will be too excited to be tired.  I’ll post pics when I get home Monday.

You have a great weekend whatever your plans are!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

Found this pillow while shopping last week.

Hope it brought a smile.  Stay inky…Be HaPpY!

Wood Crate Notes…

This package today is the sweetest and most perfect hostess or small remembrance gift to have on hand….

all packaged up and ready for giving…

Glamour close up showing what looks like a stencil…

What’s inside…

The envelopes have coordinating pieces on them but I forgot to take a pic of that.  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you though…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Wood Texture Designer Series Paper Pack, Thick Whisper White Cardstock, plus Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Night of Navy, Tranquil Tide, Calypso Coral, Old Olive and White Craft Ink
  • Stamps:  Daisy Delight, All Things Thanks, Flourishing Phrases, Feather Together
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Daisy Punch, Wood Words Framelits Dies, Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit (retired), 3-1/4″ square White Envelopes (non SU!)

Digits

  • Cut two Wood Crate pieces from Wood Texture DSP.  Stamp flowers on one side using White Craft ink.  Assemble crate using Tear Tape or Fast Fuze.  Takes two minutes to make.
  • Cut four 3″ x 6″ pieces of Thick Whisper White.  Score at 3″.  Punch three with Daisy Punch.  Cut three 3″ squares of DSP and attach behind card fronts on three of the note cards.  Add sentiment on all four card fronts.  Fussy cut the one yellow daisy from DSP and attach with multipurpose glue.  Inside there is another piece of DSP coordinating with the card front 3″ x 1/2″ attached at the bottom inside the card with SNAIL.
  • I had 3-1/4″ Whisper White notecards left over from earlier SU! days and used them.  However, if I had not had them, I would have made coordinating envelopes from the DSP using the Envelope Punch Board.  Easy Peasy!
  • For the packaging, I used 6″ x 8″ cello bags, filled the bottom with brown “grass” and tied the top with ribbon from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit.  The tag was made using the Wood Words Stamp Set and Framelits stamped in Calypso Coral.

Hope you enjoyed this hostess gift post and found something here today to inspire you in your creative journey!

Birthday Delivery Spinner…

It just doesn’t get much more fun that this…the last weekend of this month Sweetums and I will be traveling to NYC to surprise our g’daugher, Lyla (the littles), for her 10th birthday!  She knows nothing about the trip or that we will be at the airport when she arrives.  Can you say excited?

So you know there has to be the most special birthday card, right?

Cutie Pie, right?

Glamour close up…

Side angle…

From the top…

Making this card was the most fun…here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Pink Powder Cardstock, plus Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Real Red, Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Birthday Delivery
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Birthday Friends Framelits Set, Copper Thread, Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pen, Thin Tipped Glue, Tear Tape, Stitched Ovals Dies

Digits

  • Cut the Powder Pink card base 4-1/4″ x 11″.  Score at 5-1/2″.  Cut another panel 4-1/4″ x 6″, score at 1/2″ on long side.  Attach the shorter panel to the double panel with Tear Tape. Basically you have six panels counting front and back.  Five panels are decorated.

  • Let’s start with the one just above.  In the center panel place a Whisper White layer 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ with a DSP layer on top 4″ x 5-1/4″.  One panel done!
  • The panel with the oval opening has a Whisper White layer 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″.  The DSP layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Attach layers together and to card front with just a smidge of SNAIL.  Run through Big Shot with the smaller Stitched Oval Framelit to cut all three layers at the same time…it works, I promise and your layers will be perfectly aligned!  Take layers apart.  With the Scalloped Oval Framelit, cut just the DSP layer.
  • Let’s make the cutie pie girl.  Cut the figure from DSP with matching die.  Stamp on scrap Whisper White the back of her.  Color with watercolor pencils and a Blender Pen and cut out with matching die.  Cover both pieces with Thin Tipped Glue and let dry completely.  Once dry add multipurpose glue to backside of one piece, lay a 10″ piece of Copper Thread top to bottom then add second piece on top.  Add an acrylic block over it to hold it in place until completely dried.
  • Now add the Whisper White panel to the card front with multipurpose glue.  Lay the girl in the center of the oval with copper thread extending over edges.  Add multipurpose glue and attach DSP layer on top.  Add weight and let dry completely.  Trim Copper thread at edges.  Give the girl a few turns and watch her spin!.  The flag was stamped on scrap Whisper White and cut out with framelit.  Add to card panel with multipupose glue.
  • Now let’s work on the opposite side of all three panels.  Starting with the center panel there is a layer of Whisper White 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached with SNAIL.  The DSP layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached with SNAIL.  There are three balloons cut with framelit attached to background with dimensionals.
  • The panel that serves as the “stop” for the easel is a piece of DSP 2″ x 4-1/4″.  The Stitched Oval Framelit was used with Pink Powder CS attached with dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped on scrap Whisper White and punched with the new Pretty Label Punch and attached to the oval with dimensionals.  The gift box was cut from DSP with Framelit and added with SNAIL.
  • The Belly Band that holds the card together is 2″ x 11″ Whisper White scored at 4-3/8 and 9-1/4″.  The DSP layer is 1-3/4″ x 11″ attached with SNAIL.  The Whisper White oval was the one cut from the card front stamped in Real Red.  The cake was cut from DSP with Framelit and attached with SNAIL.  Wrap closed card and overlap ends.  Add Tear Tape to close Belly Band.

This card took a little time…like starting it last night and letting the pieces dry well then finishing this morning.  Honestly it takes more time to photograph and write up that it does to make it.  But you should definitely give one of these spinner cards a try…fun!  This bundle is the perfect place to start!  All supplies available June 1st!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and taking a peek.

Over the weekend I participated in the Crazy Crafters International Blog Hop as the Guest Designer.  Did you see it?  I can’t tell you how much fun I had discovering which one of my posts were picked to CASE and how they were tweaked.  Some amazing designers in that group for sure!

Next weekend I’ve been invited to join the Autism Matters Blog Hop.  That post will go up Saturday and I hope each of you will stop by.

Now that the retiring list has been published, my studio is upside down with retiring stamps and products being pulled and for sale.  There are some absolute favorites in there for me, but boy of boy do we have some awesome stamps and products coming in June!

Hope everyone had a wonder Easter weekend sharing it with those you love.

Stampin’ Peeps in the House…

Despite the fact Sweetums and I just returned home late last night, today was the day for stamping here at the studio!  And what a day we had…it was a full house with no room to spare.  Why did I not think to make a picture?  …cause I was running around like a nut!

We had three”newbies” which the regulars immediately took under their wings to make them feel at  home.  My classes are not “101” classes by any stretch, but everyone finished with big smiles on their faces.  Just one reason I love this job!

I was going to show an Easter bunny card, but one of my “peeps” brought me a beautifully wrapped gift and I just had to show it to you…

Look at that sweet succulent place card holder!  It is made in a peat pot…how cute is that?

Wonder if I could talk her into six of them?  Just kidding… But this gives me lots of ideas (like I need that!) for ways to use this bundle.

Patty used moss to cover the surface of the pot and three succulent plants to fill the top.  Wouldn’t these make the perfect hostess gift?

Thanks so much Patty for your thoughtfulness…

Sweetums and I had a quick (and I do mean quick) trip to St. Petersburg this weekend to play with “the littles” and celebrate Sweetums’ birthday in style.  We got to see soccer practice with Lyla and baseball practice with Jameson…things we miss.

This Oh So Succulent Bundle on page 21 of the All Occasions Catalog is a classic…with no end to the ideas of projects you can create.  The Bundle #145184 is a “keeper” at $48.50.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

ummmm…ok.

Come get inky with me…be HaPpY!

Little Lyla’s Sampler…

The very best thing about being a SU! Demonstrator is I have all these tools and materials at my disposal to make a gift for my soon-to-be g’daughter, Lyla.  She will looovvveee this!

She is all about this color combination and she loves bling.  Lyla will be turning the BIG 1-0 in a few weeks, but I’m going to give it to her this weekend when I see her…eekkk!

So to answer the one question I’m sure will come up…the frame was purchased at Hobby Lobby for less than $10 and is 8″ x 8″.  Perfect size!  And it can hang on the wall or stand alone.

all her favorite colors!

Now I didn’t color this carton, but have colored others (which I’ll show you in the next days) with a spritzer filled 3/4 full with rubbing alcohol and ten or so drops of reinker.  They look adorable as you will see, but I also love this natural color too.
