Celebrate the Good Stuff...with a Fun Gift Bag!

I really love the Picture Perfect Party Suite.  (And just you wait!  I still need to tell you all about an event I just had.  I used this whole suite to plan the "party"!)  I love the colors, the fabulous paper, the stamps, etc, etc.  It. Is. So. Much. Fun!!! 

Well...today I want to share another fun idea using this suite of products...it's a fun gift bag!  This would be great wrapping for a birthday party you need to attend (gift cards would be perfect in here!) or could also be used as a favor for any party you are throwing!! 


Colors: Bermuda Bay, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White
Cardstock/Papers Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Picture Perfect Party Designer Paper
Stamps: Picture Perfect Birthday
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, Triple Banner Punch
Accessories: Linen Thread, Tutti-Frutti Sequins, Delicate White Doilies

I have to admit...I pretty much love this.  And just saying, the sequins from the "Tutti Frutti" suite go perfectly with this suite also! 

Can we talk about how much I love these little noise blower stamps?!  Cause I do...I love them so much.  😍😍😍

I have to also say how much I love the background.  I just took the "happy birthday" sentiment from the same stamp set and repeatedly stamped it on the bag.  So much fun!

I hope you enjoy this fun project!  Please let me know if you have any questions!

Bitty Birthday Bow Box...

Say that post title 10 times fast.  😂  I don't think I could.  Hee.  But look how cute this bitty box really is...

Colors: Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White
Cardstock/Papers Berry Burst, Whisper White, Picture Perfect Party Designer Paper
Stamps: Picture Perfect Birthday
Tools: Big Shot, Layering Circles Framelits, 1 1/2" Circle Punch, Triple Banner Punch

These are the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog.  They are 2"x 2" and just OH SO CUTE!  This one was SO quick to make!  I just stamped the box pieces from the "Picture Perfect Birthday" stamp set--a few punches and some Designer Series Paper later...and VOILA!  A cute treat box!

PCC Challenge 281: A Magical Sketch...

Well hello there!  Who is ready to participate in another challenge?!  I hope you are ready to play because this week we have a fun sketch challenge that's ready for you!  😀

First up...my card...


Colors: Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Pool Party
Cardstock/Papers Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Pool Party

Stamps: Magical Day

Tools: Big Shot, Magical Mates Framelits, Lots of Labels Framelits, Petals & More Thinlits, Sparkle Embossing Folder
Accessories: Silver Baker's Twine, Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape, Rhinestone Basic Jewels


Now check out the sketch...


Such a fun one with so many possibilities!  And I have to tell you...this is actually a double inspiration card.  I saw a house today...yes, a house...that I kinda fell in love with.  And it just stuck in my brain.  So when I went to create, I guess it came out in card form.  Because the house just happened to be cream with white trim and a Pool Party door.  😊😍  Funny where inspiration strikes sometimes. 



I hope you enjoy this card!  Head on over to the Paper Craft Crew blog to play along!  Can't wait to see what you make!!!

Let me know if you have any questions!

One of a Kind Unicorn...

I am mixing some of my favorite NEW LOVES into a card I am about to show you!  Have you seen the "Myths & Magic" Suite in Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Catalog?  Oh how I loved it the moment I saw it.  BUT...have you also seen the Brusho in that same catalog?!  Oh. My. LOVE!!! 😍😍😍 Seriously...this stuff is pure magic.  I will include a video at the bottom of this post that shows you more about it.  But first, let me show you the card I made combining both of these products...


Colors: Soft Sky, Whisper White, Orange
Cardstock/Papers Shimmery Whisper White, Soft Sky, Basic Black
Stamps: Magical Day
Tools: Big Shot, Magical Mates Framelits, Triple Banner Punch, Heat Tool

What do you think?!  I will be sharing MANY MORE things made with this Brusho because I can't get enough.  It is SOOOO easy, SOOOOO magical, SOOOOO fabulous, and SOOOOO much fun!!!!

I used Shimmery White cardstock to do the background.  Although it is hard to photograph...


...trust me, it is so shimmery in real life.  😍  I'm officially in love.  Hee.  


Here's the video with some Brusho tips...


I hope you enjoy!  Please let me know if you have any questions!  I would love to help you get any Stampin' Up! products you may use.  😀

It's challenge time!  And it's a themed one!!!!  Have you seen Stampin' Up!'s Sale-A-Bration brochure yet?!  Oh WOW!  It has some FUN FREE products in it!  Let me know if you don't have a copy and I will be sure to get you one!  This weeks' TGIF Challenge is all about Sale-A-Bration!!!  And I used one of my favorite FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp sets for this challenge, Party Pandas!


Colors: Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist
Cardstock/Papers Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper

Stamps: Party Panda

Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Lots to Love Box Framelits

How FUN is that panda?!  I love him.  :-)   I made this box using the Lots to Love Box Framelits, just altered it a bit.  You cut out 4 pieces, instead of 2 for the normal sized box.  Makes this such a fun box, for when you need a larger sized box!

I so hope you enjoyed this fun challenge today!  Now head to the TGIF Challenge blog to see what the other designers have made and to participate yourself!!!
