Scallop Circle Flower

Today I have a video showing you how to make a scallop flower using the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. I’ve used the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack in the colors Real Red, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry.  This paper is on the retired list and available while supplies last.

I used DSP from Painted Blooms (in the Occasions catalog) for the flower below.

Polka Dot Tag a Bag

Polka Dot Bag

I sat down at my craft table to create a project with our Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bags and I saw a flower sitting on my desk that I made months ago. I tried using it to create a card many times but it just never worked for me but I think it looks pretty cute, front and center on my bag.  The bag is big enough that lots of different treats would fit inside.  This is a very quick project to make and who wouldn’t enjoy a little surprise like this to start off their day?

As I mentioned, I used the Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bags (#135503).  These are currently on the Retired List as I write this and they are discounted.  The bags are 5″ x 8-1/4″ and come 10 to a package.  Normally they are $3.95 but they are 50% off and just $1.98!  The Chevron Tag a Bag Gift Bags (#131370) are also on the retiring list and they are discounted 40%.  I will post both in my product list but please note that the sales price is not reflected on this list.

Are you wondering how I made the flower?  I used the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle punch and did some folding!  I will either make a picture tutorial or a video in the next few days and show you how I did it!

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the flower to the doily and tucked the sentiment behind. I went back and forth about whether to attach the doily to the bag but in the end I decided not to and used a clothespin to keep the bag closed.

All accessories on the retired list (which includes the bags in this project) are while supplies last.  All stamp sets will be available until May 26th!  Here’s the updated lists!

Thank you for stopping by!

Glue Dots


Petal Potpourri

Thinking of You

I’ve always loved  Elegant Eggplant and Rose Red together but it’s a combination I haven’t used recently until today!  I stamped one of the four flowers available in the stamp set, Petal Potpourri, with black Staz-On ink on watercolor paper.  I love watercoloring but it really does take some time to master, at least for me.  I wasn’t completely happy with the way the flowers turned out but I drive myself crazy with how picky I can be!

I put some ink from my stamp pad onto my clear block and picked up the color with my Aqua Painter.  I felt the center of my flowers needed a little pizzazz so I added some glue with the 2 Way glue pen and then sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds glitter – first time I’ve used glitter in a long time!

On the product list below, please note that if you are interested in purchasing the stamp set AND punch, a bundle is available at a 15% discount!

Window Card & Butterfly Framelits Update

You Make My Heart Happy

It is hard to tell by the top picture but this is a window card (it’s easier to see in the bottom picture).   I should have changed my background when I photographed it but I realized this too late – after I already sent the card off!

You make my heart happy inside of card

The sentiment comes from a photopolymer set called Lovely Amazing You (#140594).  It can’t be found in any of our catalogs but I do have it in my product list below. I stamped two flowers from the set Petal Potpourri and punched them out with the Flower Medallion punch.  I thought the card could use a little sparkle so the centers have a 1/2″ circle of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.

Update on Butterfly Thinlits Dies

After a (very) long migration, the Butterflies Thinlits Dies have landed in the Stampin’ Up! warehouse and are now available for purchase! Because the wait has been so long, you can take advantage of two special offers through April 30:

More Covered Notepads


I’ve been working on covering more 3 x 5 notepads! If you place an order with me in April, I will send one of these out to you along with a thank you card! Use the hostess code below when you place your order and I’ll send your goodies off to you!

Hostess Code:  TE2QBSYT

I covered my notepads with paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper Pack.  We have these paper packs in each of the color families.  The paper measures 12 x 12 and there are 40 sheets with 2 each of 2 double sided designs. My favorite design is definitely the dots!

In my supply list I’ve not only listed the Petal Potpourri stamp set but the bundles as well.  If you purchase the stamp set along with the punch, you’ll receive a 15% discount!

I used the Painted Petals stamp set to color the flowers on the note tag punch piece.  Using my Stampin’ Write markers, I colored directly onto the stamp. Not all of our markers are sold separately but Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry can be purchased individually.  I also used Bermuda Bay but it can only be be purchased in the Brights set (which also includes Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry).   The stems were colored using Garden Green, found in the Regals Collection of markers.

If you have any questions about the notepads or placing an order, please don’t hesitate to email me!
