You Make Me Proud

It’s graduation season!  We have what I think is our last graduation happening today.  Ryan’s is graduating with a Master’s degree from Purdue University.  And we are so very proud of him.  Today’s card is perfect for this occasion. 

It’s easy to get a masculine feel with the Wood Textures Designer series paper.  We’ve had this great stack of 6×6 papers in our catalog for the past two years.  But now it is time to say good bye!  If you love it be sure to order another pack before its gone for good.  The Friendly Expression Stamp set is also on the retiring list.  It has some nice big greetings in it and I’ve used it throughout the whole year for different things.  I’ve been in a splattering phase lately – I use my Stampin’ Write Markers to get the splatter effect – sometimes you just need to add a little something and splatter can be just the right thing.

Supply List

  • #146673 Friendly Expressions stamp set
  • #144177 Wood Textures 6×6 Designer Series Paper

Beauty in Bloom

Today I have another scrapbook layout for you.  This page was my May page for my Stamper’s Club.  I don’t think I’ve shown the April page yet so I’ll have to do that one later this month.  I’ve used the 2017-2019 In colors on this page.  They are really the perfect set of colors for flowers and the title I used on this page is Beauty in Bloom.  Don’t miss out on these beautiful colors – they are retiring!  We can only hope in a few years they might bring some of them back.  Definitely some of my personal favorites. 

I shared this page on a Facebook Live this week.  I showed how I used the Stamparatus for the stamping, a second page, and two alternate card ideas using the same supplies.  You can view my May 6, 2019 FB live video HERE.   Be sure to catch my next FB live video on Monday, May 13th.  

Don’t miss this versatile stamp set – Jar of Love and the coordinating Everyday Jar dies.  That is what I used for this page, the two page layout and my cards.  And it is retiring!  So are these colors and the Brushwork Alphabet that I used for the title.  Everyone had the option to choose whatever title they wanted since the letters were individually stamped.  We had a variety of spring & bloom titles.  Watch the video to see how I set up a template and used the Stamparatus to stamp all the pieces. 

Supply List

  • #141587 Jar of Love stamp set
  • #141772 Brushwork Alphabet stamp set
  • #141490 Everyday Jars dies
  • #146276 Stamparatus
  • #145453 2017-2019 12×12 Card stock
  • #147147 Powder Pink Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #147145 Lemon Lime Twist Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #147146 Tranquil Tide Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #147143 Berry Burst Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #147144 Fresh Fig Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #147003 Neutrals 12×12 Card stock
  • #147107 Pool Party Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #132708 Memento Pad
  • #124302 Whisper White 12×12 Card stock
  • #146927 Share What You Love Artisan Pearls
  • #138401 Gold Metallic Thread
  • #104199 Linen Thread
  • #143741 Garden Trellis Embossing Folder
  • #143263 Big Shot Die Cutting Machine

I focused on a lot of retiring products when making this page.  On last hurrah!  So hurry and get them before they are gone for good – the 2017-2019 In Colors, the Jar of Love set and dies, the pearls, the embossing folder and even the Big Shot!

Here are the two alternate cards that my club could make using the same supplies. 

The first card has the same stamping as the scrapbook page – I just added the greeting.  For the second card I stamped directly on Crumb Cake card stock with the medium sized jar and the other little spray of greenery.  Then added the words.

For my Facebook Live video I added a second page so it would be a two page spread.

I used the same supplies just stamped out the medium and small jars and then divided the flowers and leaves between the two of them.

Well Written Blooms Birthday

I had planned on saying that this was the 4th card from my Birthday Bingo event, but as I scrolled back through my posts I can only find where I shared 2 cards so far.  So I guess this makes the 3rd one of the set.  And I’ll have to share the 4th one with you in another post.  Plus since I posted the others I filmed a FB Live video showing you how to make all 4 of them plus the box that I stored them all in – or use it for a gift for someone.  Would it be weird to give someone one a set of birthday cards as a birthday gift? 

You can view my April 15, 2019 FB live video HERE.  I show you how to make this card plus three more.

This one is quite quick if you use the Adhesive Sheets on your paper before you die cut out the words.  By the way the adhesive sheets are retiring so be sure to order them now before they sell out.  I used the Happiness Blooms Designer Series paper and the Enamel Dots on this one.  That was where the color scheme came from.  Die cut the words from the Well Written dies – these will be in our new catalog by the way.  And so will the enamel dots – you can see here that I used the dot on my i in birthday.  That’s easier than trying to keep up with the one that gets cut.  If you use the adhesive sheets all you do is peel off the backing and stick your words on your card.

Supply List

  • #148795 Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper
  • #148802 Happiness Blooms Cardstock Pack
  • #148805 Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots
  • #100730 Whisper White Cardstock
  • #143263 Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
  • #148534 Well Written Dies
  • #144106 Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets
  • #146336 Night of Navy Medium Baker’s Twine

This card actually has no stamping on it.  Just the die-cutting and assembly. On the inside is a piece of Whisper White card stock and a matching strip of the Designer Paper.  As we near the end of the Occasions Catalog and the Annual Catalog there are many retiring products.  Be sure to order what you want now before it is gone – the Designer Paper, Navy Twine and Adhesive sheets are some of what is retiring. The link to get to my online store is below.

Another Piece of Cake

About a month ago I held a Birthday Bingo event and it was so much fun!  Everyone that attended made four cards featuring the Piece of Cake Bundle and the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper.  My last post was one of the cards and today I’m sharing another one. 

UPDATED: You can view my April 15, 2019 FB live video HERE.  I show you how to make this card plus three more.

I love the new Dot to Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder that is part of the Happiness Blooms Suite.  It can add a fun background to your cards.  All the cards we made used the Night of Navy classic ink.  And for this one I used the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker to color in the dripping frosting on the cake.

  • #148610 Piece of Cake stamp set
  • #148525 Cake Builder punch
  • #150579 Piece of Cake Bundle 10% savings

On the inside of the card I added a Whisper White layer and a strip of the Designer Series paper that was on the front of the card.

Love You February 2019 Scrapbook layout

Let’s take a look at the scrapbook layout I created for February.  It’s a love, heart themed page but doesn’t actually say Valentine’s Day so it could be used for any number of things.  My monthly stamp club created the left page and then I added the right page and showed them both in my Facebook Live. Be sure you watch my Facebook Live video from Sunday, March 10th and you can see both of these pages plus some bonus tags. 

Watch the video here – Facebook Live March 10th

The Meant To Be Bundle and All My Love Designer Series Paper were perfect for a February scrapbook page.  I used strips of paper in varying widths and lengths.  This is a perfect way to use up scraps left from other projects.  The hearts stamped in the background are 3 different ones from the Meant to Be stamp set and I mounted all three on one block so they could be inked and stamped together. 

Supply List

  • #147003 Neutrals 12×12 Card stock
  • #100730 Whisper White Card stock
  • #46970 Lovely Lipstick Card stock
  • #150587 Meant to Be Bundle (Meant to Be stamp set + Be Mine Stitched Framelits)
  • #148576 All My Love Designer Series Paper
  • #148583 Heart Epoxy Droplets
  • #147116 Crumb Cake classic ink
  • #143263 Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
  • #148534 Well Written Framelits Dies

The Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies have so many different elements and they even fit perfectly on some of the hearts on the Designer Series paper.  You also have the option to add stitching on some of the solid hearts with the stitching dies. 

I scattered the little hearts from the die cut and the epoxy hearts in with the background stamping on each page.

With some of my left over scrap pieces I also made tags.  These go on the orders that customers pick up from my house.
