September Card Class

My card classes for September are coming up!  We’ll make 4 cards with envelopes to match for just $10 (or FREE with your $20 order that day).

Here’s what we’ll be making:

Create With Cheryl Golden Leaf

This elegant card uses the Leaflit Framelits.  Simple card & so pretty!

Best Thoughts

Best Thoughts is a Hostess Set.  We’ll do a little watercoloring with aquapainters.  Cased this card from Elaine Schader.  Thanks, Elaine!

The Open Sea

I’m always running short on “Man Cards” and this one using The Open Sea is my favorite masculine stamp set!  Thanks to Stampin’ Georgia for the great idea!

Doggie Punch Art

When I saw this adorable card made by Susan Campfield, I had to give it a try.  It’s actually very quick to put together using the Hearts Framelits.


Swiffer in the lilikoi

Had to show off my puppy, Swiffer!

Create With Cheryl Pretty Petals

I promise I’ll try to do 2 simple cards this time!  Here’s a very quick one using Pretty Petals DSP stack. Thank you, Cindee Wilkinson, for the great idea!  I used a 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 sheet of DSP, cut a 1″ strip from it & turned it over (the orange flowers is on the back side).  The Old Olive CS piece is 3 3/4 X 3 3/4.

See the doodling underneath?  That’s stamped from the Tin of Cards Stamp Set.

Hope you can squeeze this fun class into your schedule!

Gift Cards using BYOP

Made some different gift cards this week using the set BYOP (*buy your own present!).  It contains lots of clever sentiments to go along with your gift card.  CASED this idea from Beth McAlexander.

That gorgeous DSP is on the clearance rack for just $5.19!  Regular price $12.05.

Build a Birthday

I’m having so much fun playing around with my new stamps!  For this card, I used the new set:  Build a Birthday!  

IMG_9110I love how this cake fills up the whole front of the card!  I used scraps of Cherry on Top DSP Stack for the cake.

Scrap dimensions:

2 3/4 X 3/4

2 1/2 X 3/4

2 1/4 X 3/4

Found the idea for this card here .

Thanks for checking in with me!  Hope you get to do a little stampin’ today!

Sprinkles of Life

Today I’m going to show you a few cards I made with a new stamp set called Sprinkles of Life, which will be available June 2 from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog!  Proceeds from this stamp are donated to help Ronald McDonald Houses. Sprinkles of LifeI’ve used lots of new items on this card, including Cherry on Top DSP Stack, and a few of the new In Colors:  Mint Macaron, Cucumber Crush, and Watermelon Wonder.  Don’t you wish you were on the Naming Committee for the new colors?!!

IMG_9042I’ve covered up the lace a little too much, but take my word for it, it’s GORGEOUS! Sprinkles of Life 2 Sprinkles of Life 3I think this one’s my favorite, possibly because of the mint chocolate chip ice cream on top! Sprinkles of Life 4This card is a totally different look, but I still used the Cherry on Top DSP Stack and Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set.  One of the best things about this set is the coordinating new punch!!  It’s called Tree Builder Punch and I’m pretty sure YOU NEED THIS!  Ha!  Found the sentiment from Bloom with Hope, a hostess set that’s soon to be retired!

We’ll be making one of these cards at our June Club.  Leave a reply below if you have a favorite!

Creative Blog Hop!

I’m so excited & honored to be nominated to participate in the Creative Blog Hop! Anne Matasci, my upline and super-talented crafty person, nominated me. Thanks, Anne! Where to start? I pulled out some things that I’d been wanting to play with for a long time. I’ve had the French Fry Box for a couple of months, thinking I’d use it for Christmas, but just didn’t have time to open the package! Now’s my chance!
These were so quick & simple to put together!! I cut a small piece of Best Year Ever DSP (FREE SAB item!) to line the back of the boxes. The stamp set is from Cycle Celebration punched out using Decorative Label & Large Oval Punches. I just love the Calypso Coral Pompom Trim!! It’s held in place using 2014-2016 In Color Clothespins (which happen to be on the Weekly Deals this week).IMG_8018 The tag is from the FREE Sale-a-Bration set called Big Day.
And, finally, a matching card:
IMG_7970 I love the colors in this DSP! One great thing about using DSP (Designer Series Paper) is that it takes all the thinking out of which colors to choose…just use any colors in the DSP and you have a perfect color combo! Here I’ve used Crushed Curry, Pool Party, & Chocolate Chip. IMG_7972For the tag & the inside of the card I’ve used Amazing Birthday Stamp Set.
The buttons & ribbon are also FREE through SAB! Sale-a-Bration is Stampin’ Up!’s most popular promotion and is running now through March 31st. For each $50 you spend, you can choose a FREE Sale-a-Bration item!

Part of the Creative Blog Hop is to answer a few questions about yourself, so here goes…

1. What are you working on?
I have a couple of fun projects I’m working on now. I just started working at a Podiatry Office (shout out to Island Podiatry…woohoo!). We’re just setting up shop and I’m the nurse/receptionist/office manager all in one. I think the office needs a personal touch, which would mean… decorated clipboards & pens, pretty tissue boxes, a container for sugar-free candy, a woman’s foot & man’s foot for the bathroom key, maybe even a ‘Happy Feet Banner”. Any other ideas?? I could really get carried away with this idea!
The other project is Disney-related. My daughter, Malia, has just started an internship at Disney University, a life-long dream of hers!! I want to send a Disney-themed goodie box to her & her roommates.

2. How does your work differ from others in your genre?
That’s a tough one. When I make a card, I want the receiver to be pleasantly surprised when they open it! So I try to make the inside very special. I always stamp the outside of my envelopes, too, so that they are excited to see inside. Once I even had the Mail-lady knock on my door to see where all the cute mail was coming from! She ended up signing up to be a demonstrator with me!

3. Why do you create what you do?
I’ve enjoyed making things since I was a kid. I remember decorating my room with mobiles, ornaments, and banners I had made. I love having small gifts to give to friends & coworkers…filled with goodies. The ideas are endless with Stampin’ Up! One of most unexpected things I’ve gained from stamping are the close friendships!

4. How does your creative process work?
I usually start copying an idea from Pinterest (yes…I’m addicted!) and end up changing it around using the things I have available. Or it can begin with something I like (a napkin, postage stamp, dress in a catalog) and I’ll use those colors or theme. I’m definitely a messy crafter!!! Creative chaos seems to be my theme & it makes me happy!

Now I’d like to nominate 2 bloggers to continue this blog hop!

The first one is Lauren Winemiller. I met her at Convention & she swapped with me, giving me a cute little, teeny bag with the tutorial. You’ll enjoy all the cute ideas on her blog!

The second person is someone I stumbled upon while browsing Pinterest. Michelle Long is very creative and I ended up pinning a bunch of her creations!

Also, please go to my friend, Crystal Kondo’s blog & check out her post. She & I were both nominated by Anne for today and I can’t wait to see what she’s come up with!!
