Happy Make a Card Monday!

Hello Stampers!  It's Make a card Monday!  Today I decided to show you a technique on my video.  This is a technique that I actually showed you a sample of last week.  We will be learning the Baby Wipe plaid technique.  

Here is a card showing the technique:

Make a Card Monday - Easter card

Hello Stampers!  It's Make a Card Monday!  Today I decided it was time to make an Easter card.  Stampin' Up! doesn't have any cute Easter sets out now, so I decided to make one using the We Must Celebrate stamp set from the Occasions catalog.

Here is the card that we will be making:

We Must Celebrate, Inkin With Dink

In the video I will show you how I made the card.  I will also show you how I cut the stamp set apart so that each animal is a separate stamp!

Here is the video:



In the end of the video I announced that I would be giving one of these cards away, so leave me a comment and I will draw and give away one of these cards!  You have until 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday to leave your comment!  Thanks for stopping by!

Alternate craft project & Sale-a-bration feature

Hello Stampers!  If you are a real crafter at heart, you will understand that I certainly have other crafting loves besides my card making.  I like to scrapbook, quilt, paint, and lots of other papercrafting.  Every month I get to be a participant at a Silhouette class.  I love it because it is a class that I don't have to plan, prep, or clean up after!  So fun!  My March class was this last week so I thought I would share with you the project that we made this month.

Easter project, Inkin With Dink

Isn't it fun?  It was a fun class!  We pinted the background of our canvas using the freezer paper method!  I haven't ever tried that method before!  Now I may have to try it on a card too!  The other pieces we cut out using our e-cutter machines.

Thanks for stopping by to see  my latest craft project.  

Well, unfortunately, Sale-a-bration is about to come to an end.  I have decided to showcase the Sale-a-bration products in my blog posts for the rest of this month.  Most days I will feature one or two projects using a Sale-a-bration item.  Come back tomorrow and see some projects using the Avant Garden stamp set!  It is a beautiful stamp set!

Honeycomb Happiness samples

Hello Stampers!  Did you know that Sale-a-bration is wrapping up?  That's right!  There are only 4 more days to get some products for FREE!  Over the next 4 days, I'm going to be showcasing some of the products that you can receive for FREE during this time.

Today we are going to be looking at the stamp set, Honeycomb Happiness.  

This is such an adorable set, and it coordinates with the Honeycomb Embellishments from the Occasions catalog.  The little chick image is cute for Easter, or any occasion.

IMG_6433-001 This is the Easter basket that we made at our February team meeting!

IMG_6434-001 This shows how you would mail the Honeycomb embellishments.  Simply adhere it unopened and then you could add a little note that they needed to open it up when they received it!



Thanks for checking these out!  Come back tomorrow and we will look at another item!

Happy Easter!

Hello Stampers!  Happy Easter!  I hope that you have all had a great day with family!

Even though my girls are getting older, I can't help but make some cute Easter things for them!  This year I was checking out Pinterest and found the cute Easter baskets made out of movie theater boxes of candy.  So, I decided to give it a try!

IMG_6463-001 They were super simple and turned out so cute. 

For each box I just used 4 boxes of candy and hot glued them to a piece of cardboard from one of our designer series paper packs.

Of course I had to make a cute tag too, so this is what I came up with:

IMG_6464-001 The bunny is made with the Friends & Flowers stamp set from the Occasions catalog and the coordinating Festive Flower Builder punch!

Sale-a-bration is almost over, so this week I will be featuring the Sale-a-bration products that are available!
