Amazing Life Scrapbook

This bright fun scrapbook page was one that I created for my Stamp Club and also used for a class at a Spring Scrapbook Crop that I was a Vendor at.  I used the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper – the same as my Birthday Bingo cards – to make this happy layout – plus I have a couple of cards too.  For my Stamp Club I created the left page of the two page layout.  I also used those supplies to create two cards for those members that would rather have cards instead of the page.  Last week I shared the two page layout and the cards in a Facebook Live. 

You can view my April 22, 2019 FB live video HERE.   Be sure to catch my next FB live video on Monday, April 29th. 

I started with a Night of Navy 12 x 12 piece of card stock.  Trim a piece of Whisper White to be 11 x 11.  The cake image and Yay! were just randomly stamped in the background using Night of Navy ink.  Next I added Pineapple Punch little dots and colored the flames in too.  I chose two patterns from the Happiness Blooms Designer Series paper and cut strips to cover the left side of the page.  Cut one at 1-1/2″ and the other at 1″ wide.  The photo frames/mats are cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies – since they will layer inside each other you can actually cut all the pieces with one pass through the die cutting machine.  To finish the page I added a fun tag for the title at the top.

Supply List

  • #147003 Neutrals 12×12 Cardstock (Night of Navy)
  • #124302 Whisper White 12 x 12 Carstock
  • #148750 Amazing Life stamp set
  • #150624 Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies
  • #150624 Amazing Life Bundle (stamp set + Framelits dies)
  • #148795 Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper
  • #148805 Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots
  • #146973 In Color 2018-2020 Cardstock pack (Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover)
  • #147110 Night of Navy Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #147141 Pineapple Punch Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #147024 Call Me Clover Dark Stampin’ Blends
  • #146336 Medium Night of Navy Baker’s Twine
  • #143717 Starburst Punch
  • #133782 2” Circle Punch
  • #138292 Banner Triple Punch

The second page of the layout is similar with an accent piece in the bottom corner featuring the cake.

For my stamp club members that don’t want to make a scrapbook page they have the option to make two cards instead.  They used the  same supplies which is more than enough for two cards.  Because the cards are smaller the strips of Designer Series paper where changed to be 1″ and 1/2″ and the tag was shortened a little bit.

The inside of each card has a piece of Whisper White that is stamped with the cake like the background on the scrapbook page.  I hope you like the projects.  The Amazing Life stamp set is retiring and so is the Happiness Blooms Designer Series paper – be sure to get those now before they are gone for good.

Fun Fold Birthday card

Now here is that 4th card from the Birthday Bingo.  I thought I had posted it but do not see the post.  It’s a fun fold card that shows both sides of the Designer Paper.  The Happiness Blooms Designer Paper is what this whole set of cards used.  It is bright and cheerful and I love it for birthday cards. I posted the other cards already and I filmed a FB Live video showing you how to make all 4 of them.  You can view my April 15, 2019 FB live video HERE

The main part of the card is actually a 4″ x 12″ strip of the Happiness Blooms Designer paper.  It is scored and folded and then glued to a piece of Night of Navy and a piece of Whisper White is added to the inside for you to write on.  The front is decorated with the Piece of Cake stamp set, Night of Navy Baker’s Twine and Enamel Dots. 

Supply List

  • #148610 Piece of Cake stamp set
  • #148795 Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper
  • #148802 Happiness Blooms Cardstock Pack
  • #148805 Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots
  • #100730 Whisper White Cardstock
  • #147110 Night of Navy Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #104430 Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • #143717 Starburst Punch
  • #133782 2″ Circle Punch
  • #146336 Night of Navy Baker’s Twine

When you flip it open you get to see the other side of the Designer Paper.  It’s a fun style of card!

 

Here is a look at the full set of cards and the box.  Bingo was a ton of fun and I’ll be planning another one sometime this summer.

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.

Supply List

  • #148610 Piece of Cake stamp set
  • #148525 Cake Builder punch
  • #150579 Piece of Cake Bundle 10% savings
  • #148795 Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper

  • #147156 Subtles Stampin’ Write Markers (Calypso Coral)

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.

Let’s Eat Cake

It’s time for cake!  The Cake Builder Punch is back in stock and you can order it now!  That means the Piece of Cake Bundle is also available to order.  Did you know that when you order as a bundle it saves you 10%?  And we only have bundles when the items are introduced in the catalog.  Meaning that once this catalog ends even if the products carry over (and the punch is for sure) they won’t be a bundle any more.  So save your money now and order the bundle.

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

I used the Piece of Cake Bundle and the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper for my Bingo event at the end of February.  It was a birthday theme and we made some fun cards.  This one is Lovely Lipstick, Night of Navy and Whisper White.  I randomly stamped the Happy Birthday all over the white panel.  What I do is take the stamp – ink it – stamp, stamp, stamp – and then repeat.  That gives you the varying degrees of color in the background. 

Supply List

  • #148610 Piece of Cake stamp set
  • #148525 Cake Builder punch
  • #150579 Piece of Cake Bundle 10% savings
  • #148795 Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper
  • #148802 Happiness Blooms Cardstock Pack
  • #148805 Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots

  • #146336 Medium Night of Navy Baker’s Twine
  • #141897 Wink of Stella Glitter Brush
  • #104430 Stampin’ Dimensionals

The inside is finished to match with a coordinating strip of the Designer Series paper.  The cake plate on the front is punched from the Silver Foil. 

There is a little bit of Wink of Stella on the candle flames but I don’t think you can really see it in the photo.

Hop on outta here

I have some more updates about Sale-A-Bration products.  A couple of things have hopped right outta here and others are moving fast.  So if you have something you want you better hop on over to my online store and order it right now! 

The Organdy Ribbon that was back at the beginning of the week sold out about a day later – I told you to hurry.  And the Hop Around Framelits that coordinate with the So Hoppy Together stamp set – well they hopped right on out of here too!  So the moral of the story is don’t wait order today.  Rumor has it that the next thing that will sell out is the Call Me Cupcake Framelits that go with the Hello Cupcake Sale-A-Bration stamp set. 

I had this cute Hoppy Birthday card to share with you today.  It will be an option in my Quick & Cute cards class at the end of the month. 

I used the dies on the frog and the lily pad but if you have decent fussy cutting skills you can cut out that frog with paper snips.  And to make a lily pad use a skinny oval shape and cut a notch out of one end.  The little flies I stamped directly on the card and added a little “movement” with my black marker.  Birthday comes from the new More Than Words stamp set. 

Supply List

  • #149725 So Hoppy Together stamp set (SAB Free with $50 order)
  • #150073 Hop Around Framelits Dies (sadly they have sold out)
  • #150069 More Than Words stamp set
