Enchanting Note Cards...





I posted a set of note cards a little bit ago.  HERE is the original post if you would like to see it.  I made another style as well.  This time using the Sale-A-Bration paper, "Everyday Enchantment."


Isn't it fun?!  I know you can't get this paper anymore, but  you could do this with other fun papers that you love!  Here is a side view so you can see how thick the tin is...
And opened up you get this...

Here is a picture of all the cards...
And then just one card up close...
These sets would make great gifts!  Who doesn't need this?!  :)  I did sell these at the Boutique I did a week ago and I did and did sell out of this style.  This paper is AWESOME and makes any project cute!!!

Hope you enjoy!  Thanks so much for visiting!

Mother's Day...Times Two...

Have TWO Mother's Day cards to show you today!  Thought you might need a bit of inspiration as we prepare for one of the most important days of the year.  :)  (At least I think so...I LOVE being able to show appreciate for my amazing Mother!  And now as a Mother...I think I deserve a day of celebration as well.  :) )  So here is the first of two cards to share...


I love this fresh and fun color combo!  It's Basic Gray, Melon Mambo, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, and some Whisper White.  Here is a close-up so you can see some of the details...
LOVE this flower!  It is from the Button Buddies stamp set, punched out with the Scallop punch!  Can't get any better than that!  And that Shimmer Concord Grape brad in the middle....LOVE these!  And that scallop-y Melon Mambo ribbon....my goodness!  Then I used the Labels Framelits to make the frame under the flower and embossed it with the Lattice embossing folder.  LOVE that look!

Second card up for show that is similar but a softer look...
I know...it's using retired paper from Sale-A-Bration.  Well...you probably have lots of it that you still want ideas on how to use it...right?!  And if you didn't get the paper...well...that's just crazy talk!  Of course you did!  :)  (he he)  So I just did a strip of it down the middle of a Sahara Sand card base.  Then added some Poppy Parade scallops on the side.  (Poppy Parade is a retiring In Color!  Get it while you can!  The In Color stuff sells out quick!  Some already has started to sell out!)  And that Pleated ribbon on this card...yum!!!  Need this ribbon in every single color!  :) 

Here is a close-up...
Some Blossom flower punches, a circle punch, a Sale-A-Bration brad (another thing I am SURE you have!  :) ), and YUMMY flower!!!! 

Hope you enjoy both of these cards!  Thanks for visiting!!!

Always In My Thoughts...

Time to share another 12x12 layout!  I made this layout awhile ago...but never shared it.  I guess it's about time!  I really liked it so I made some extra for the Boutique I did.  (Are you sick of hearing about that yet?!  :) )  I really LOVE the paper on this.  It's the Domestic Goddess paper.  Yet...you so do NOT have to use it for kitchen stuff!  Just the patterns in the paper are SO much fun for SO many things!!!!  Here it is...

Love the flower punches...the stamping in the corners (it's from the "BFF" stamp set), all the patterns you see, etc.  Here is the first page...
With some close-up's of the focal points...

Love a little bling with the Rhinestones!  :)

Here is the 2nd page of the layout...
And some close-up's...

I used the colors that coordinate with the paper.  Basic Gray, Calypso Coral, Pool Party are the main ones.  LOTS of products on these pages are going away!  So get them while you can!  Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you enjoy!!!

Decorate With Stampin' Up!

I made something for the I just Boutique that I just LOVE!  (Oh...and for those of you that asked...the Boutique went pretty well.  We didn't have as big of a turn-out as we had hoped but it went well for the amount of people that came.  I didn't sell out of anything though...so if you see something that I post that you want to buy let me know!)  This is what I made that I just LOVE...
Isn't it SO much fun!!!  I made this one with the Cheerful Treat Hostess Designer Series Paper.  I have others with different designs that I will share at a later date.  :)  This one I didn't sell so it's going in my stamp room!  :)  I love how easy these go together with some fun Decor Elements, punches, Big Shot (for embossing the flowers), big fat striped ribbon (that I LOVE!!!), and some retired buttons.  I believe these buttons are on the Clearance Rack still so you may be able to order them on my WEBSITE.  But here are some close-up's...

Those flowers are embossed with the polka dot folder and then I sponged all the edges to make them pop.  Then this particular pack of Decor Elements has four total words.  (It's the Inspiration pack in Black...Small size and it IS retiring so get it now if you want it!)  So I made two frames with it.  (And just FYI...the frames measure about 13" x 5" maybe...or somewhere around there.)  Here is the one with the other words...and it looks the exact same...
I will share the other designs of these later.  I hope you enjoy!  Thanks for visiting!!!

Who Needs A Post-It?!

I am one of those people that LOVES Post-It's.  They are the best.  I am always looking for a Post-It pad and pen.  If you are too...here is your solution...
How much fun is THIS?!  I have made these quite a few times before so if you have followed my blog for awhile this will be familiar to you.  But how fun is this CUPCAKE one?!?  :)  Open it up and you get...
Your Post-It's!!!!  Keep that pen in it's holder and you always have a Post-It and pen when you need it...
I have been LOVING this cupcake stamp set.  I wasn't sure I would use a whole lot when I got it but I just had to have it.  :)  But I actually have used it quite a bit and think it's so much fun for cards, treats for people, any 3D item, scrapbook pages, all sorts of stuff!  LOVE it!

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you enjoy!!!

Raining Notebooks...

Don't you ALWAYS need a cute notebook handy for something?!  I am always looking for paper to make a "quick write" on...and so I try to keep notebooks around for such an occasion.  I decided to make some notebooks for the Boutique I just did.  Here is one I made...
I used the Clear Mount stamp cases.  I LOVE that Stampin' Up! sells these separately so you can buy them and make as many of these as you want!  :)  Here is a picture of the inside...
I made a quick view calendar in here as well so you could always keep track of the date.  Then here is a side view so you can see the ribbon I tied on the side...
People liked these notebooks a lot.  And I am glad...because I do too!!!  :)  I used the Raining Flowers stamp set for this one (LOVE LOVE that set!) with the Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper.  It coordinates nicely with the 12x12 Scrapbook layout that I posted a few days ago.  :)

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you enjoy!

Flowers, Flowers, Everywhere...

 How fun is this little flower treat?!...


I made these flower treats for the Boutique. I think they are super fun and cute!  I am going to make some bouquets of these for some special mothers I know!  I may fill them with different treats, but I loved the Smarties cause they are wrapped candies!  That's always good when selling to strangers, right?!  :)  Here is a close-up of the flower...

I used a fun die that I haven't used in awhile.  I forget the name...Blossom Party maybe?! And I spritzed with Shimmer Spray I made.  (Use about 12 drops or so...and just add more if it's not shimmery enough for you...of Shimmer Paint to 2 ozs. of Rubbing Alcohol in a spritzer bottle.  Shake it like crazy, and then spritz away.)  Love how they sparkle!  Here are some other colors I made...   









And I had a lot of different colors.  Here are just some more...

 Hope you enjoy!  Thanks for visiting!!!!

Happy Mother's Day...

Tomorrow is the Boutique I have been prepping for! Yay! Excited to see how it goes. Since it's a Mother's Day Boutique...I figured I better have some Mother's Day cards! :) So here is one that I made a few of...
This one is easy to do and turns out quite cute. I got the idea from a group swap I was in. I used the Island Floral die to cut out all the flower pieces and the leaves behind it. That is one fabulous die! Then I put a flower brad in the middle. The background is embossed and sponged to make it pop. LOVE this color combo. It's using Crumb Cake...my FAVE!!!! And then Pink Pirouette, Lucky Limeade, and Early Espresso. Gotta love that Baker's Twine! Here's a close-up...
Hope you enjoy! Thanks for visiting!!! Wish me luck tomorrow! Would love to have any visitors come see me! :)

Cheerful Treat Card Tin...

Here is another item I have made for the Mother's Day Boutique I am doing this Saturday. It's a tin with coordinating note cards inside. Here is the tin...
I used the FABULOUS Designer Paper from the Hostess Section of the catalog called, "Cheerful Treat." I LOVE LOVE this stuff! The colors are SO much fun! Here is a side-view of the tin...And when you open the tin you see this...

Here are all the cards in the set...I made five coordinating cards just using different Designer Series Papers from that pack. Then I used the little Scallop Rectangle Sizzlet (I can't remember the exact name) and the Big Shot to make that little rectangle. Then paired with the butterfly embosslit...does it get any better?! :) Here is a close-up of the embossed butterflies...I hope you enjoy! Thanks for visiting!!!! Wouldn't this make a great gift for any woman in your life?!

Cherish...

I have been stamping LOTS these days. :) I am still getting ready for the Boutique I am doing on Saturday. (If you are in the Kaysville, UT area....it's at the Luv 2 Dance Studio on Sportsplex Drive from 10am-4pm...would LOVE LOVE to have you come see me!) I decided I was going to have some pre-made 12x12 scrapbook layout there to sell. Here is one that I made...
(***Note: it is very hard to photograph 12x12 layouts so sorry these pics aren't the best! Anyone have tips for me...I would take them! :) )

Isn't this fun?! I got this idea from a fellow demo friend, Melanie. She's very talented! Would give you a link to her blog...but she doesn't have one! :( But she does post on a blog that is done by my upline. (Sorry...can't link you there because it's a password protected training blog.) I tweaked a few things...but basically...it's the same as her's. I just loved it!!! Here are some more up-close pics...This is the first page of the 2-page spread. I used the Tasteful Trim XL die with the Big Shot to get that fun scallop border. The Designer Series Paper that you see is from the Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper. LOVE this stuff! :) Here is a close-up of the Rosette...I made that with the Rosette die and the Big Shot. OH MY GOODNESS...I can't even begin to tell you HOW MUCH I LOVE the Rosette die!!!! It saves lots of time and is SO WONDERFUL!!! :) The scallop is cut with the Big Shot as well. You can also see how I splattered the "cherish" title with an Early Espresso marker and my Color Spritzer tool. (Yes...I probably use this tool just about every day of my life. :) ) It's just all about the details to me...so I like to add little things that help things pop....especially in scrapbooks!!!!

On to page 2...
The stamping is from the "Raining Flowers" stamp set. Love that set! It's so much fun and the flowers are all fabulous. I don't think you can really see...but the Wisteria Wonder 12x12 pages are the textured cardstock. I LOVE using this stuff...it adds such a cool detail...and again...it's all about the details! :) I just pulled the colors I used from the Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper...Early Espresso, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade. I also added the Concord Crush ribbon (that WILL be retiring soon because it's from the In Color group that has been in the catty for it's 2nd year this year! So get it while you can! This ribbon is AWESOME!!!) because I liked this color with it as well.

Hope you enjoyed this layout! Thanks so much for visiting!

April Club Project...Part 1

Last night was club and I had a blast! I love my club gals. We even had a new friend join us last night! (Hi, Jolie!!) It was a great night. Today I am going to show you the Mother's Day purse we made...

Isn't this fun! It's using the largest Labels Framelit die. Here are a few close-up's...We used a strip of the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper. And the flower and the leaves are both stamped with stamps from the "Mixed Bunch" stamp set in the Occasions Mini. Then just cut the Pear Pizzazz flower into individual petals to use as leaves for the flower. Then we just made a box to go between the two Labels...And added some pleated ribbon...
Hope you enjoyed! And club girls...I will send out your PDF instruction sheets today!
