Notebooks Galore...

I love notebooks!  And I love making my own.  I always need a place to quickly jot a note down it seems.  Today I want to share a fun notebook idea with you.  Here it is...

This was made with the Oval Accent Bigz Die.  I made quite a few of these notebooks and I used the "Print Poetry" Designer Series Paper stack that is in the current mini for all of them. This is a fun pack of paper to use.  Love all the patterns!  It's gone on May 31st so get it before it's gone!  :)  Here are some of the notebooks that I made using this paper...

These were hard to take a good picture of.  There is a window sheet that cover the front and back covers.  Then the flower accent is adhered to that window sheet.  Here are a few pics of how it is all put together...
Since this is a Bigz die and can cut so many sheets at once...these were fairly quick to make.  I just used plain white printer paper as the inside sheets of the notebook. 

Hope you enjoy these!  Make one on your own and see how easy they are!  Thanks for visiting!!!

May's Club Project...

Thought I posted this already!  But here is the project we made at club this month...


It's a box we made with the Two Tags Die.  YES!  This die is retiring!  Will NOT be in the new catalog that starts May 31st!  And it could sell out!  So get this die for sure before it's gone!  Very versatile die...for so much more than just tags!  This box was fun to make.  And you could easily fill it with someone's fave treat.  But we made 4 tags using the "Button Buddies" stamp set.  This one is also retiring.  I LOVE this stamp set!  So many fun images for ANY occasion!  Here are the pics of the tags...

And here are some close-up's...
These tags all open up so you can write your message on the inside.

This was a fun project to make.  Hope you enjoy it as well!  Thanks so much for visiting!

May's Club Card...

Here is the fun card we made at our club meeting this month...

Lots of fun things on this card.  The Designer Series Paper is from the International Bazaar pack.  (LOTS of fun patterns in that!)  And LOVE the Soda Pop Tops!  We smashed them down in the Big Shot and then used the Collage Curios stamp set for the middle.  Added some Crystal Effects in the Soda Pop Top and a fun and shiny element...


LOVE that Distressed Dots background stamp!  SO SAD it's on the retired list!!!!  Get it before it's gone!
 Hope you enjoy this card!  Everyone seemed to have fun making it! 

Thanks for visiting!

Who Needs Some Brightness?!?

This card is a very bright card.  I love it!  I guess I was thrilled by the sun we were finally getting when I made this card.  :)  A few weekends ago I went to an AMAZING event at the Stampin' Up! home office about 45 mins away from my house.  (Yes...I know...how lucky am I?!?!?)  It was a Regional they hosted there and for the FIRST TIME ever...they even passed out the BRAND NEW catalog to us!  WHOOO HOOO!!!  It was an amazing day!  What does that have to do with this post?!  Well...this is the card I swapped there!  :)

So here it is...

Turns out I didn't get the best photo but the color combo is Pacific Point, Melon Mambo, Pool Party, and a bit of Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade and Daffodil Delight.  Oh...and some Whisper White.  :)  And in read life...this card is SPARKLY!  I used some fabulous shimmer spray I made (OK....SHIIMMER PAINT...that I use to make the spray....is RETIRING!!!!  STOCK up before it's gone.  I am SOOO bummed it's leaving!!!) on the whole card so it's quite sparkly in real life.

Here is a close-up of the center...


Hopefully you can see some of the shimmer.

Another thing I am bummed about that is retiring....this phrase stamp set!  It's called Friendly Phrases and it's one of my favorites!  Love it!  So sad it's leaving us.  :-(

Here is another shot of the whole card...maybe this one is better than the one above?!


I hope you like this card!  Oh...the center of the flower is one of the smaller Soda Pop Tops that are in the Mini that I just smooshed by running through the Big Shot.  (Just use your multi-purpose platform opened up to no tabs, then put a cutting plate, your soda pop top, and another cutting plate and run it through.  Voila!  Smashed Soda Pop Top!) 

Thanks for visiting!!!!

HELLO BABY!!!

Who needs an idea for a baby card?!?!  I have one for you...

Too fun...right?!  I used the Designer Type Photopolymer Set.  I made a background using all the letters on one clear block.  Then just stamped a few times on the card base and embossed with clear embossing powder. 

Then used that Whale cut out with the Clearlit die that is in the mini that I LOVE!  Here are a few more close-up's...


Hope you enjoy!  Meanwhile...Stampin' Up! has come out with TWO MORE Photopolymer Stamp Sets!!!  AND an online class you can take!!!

Patio Party...LOVE YOU!

Hello there!  Today I just wanted to share a quick card with you that I made using the Patio Party Designer Series Paper.  The paper takes center stage in this card...



The paper is on the bottom and then the butterflies are also made with the paper.  Gotta love the color combo and cheeriness this card brings!  (At least in my opinion.  :) )

Here are a few close-up's.  I used the embossed frame from the Designer Frames Set embossing folders and then the large oval punch to make the middle that frame the butterflies.  


Then I just love the dotted ribbon and the polka dot patterned paper.  Too much fun!!!

Hope you enjoy!  Thanks so much for visiting!
