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!

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!

Baby Sprinkle

Duck decoration

It was a busy weekend for me! As I mentioned last week, I threw a Baby Sprinkle for my daughter, Erin, on Saturday.  She is expecting her second child, a little boy in April!  I can hardly wait to meet my grandson! I haven’t had a chance to post to my blog recently as I’ve been busy preparing for the Sprinkle! Over the next few days I would like to share some of the items I made!

My first picture (above) has nothing to do with Stampin’ Up! but I thought it turned out so cute!  I placed ducks in small containers that I filled with blue pebbles.  I found this idea on Pinterest.

Here are the favors that I made!  We gave each guest hand lotion, hand sanitizer and a chocolate cigar wrapped up in one of our Tag a Bag Gift Boxes.  It all fit inside perfectly!  I used paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper Pack in Pacific Point around each side of the box. The box comes with an acetate sleeve that slides right on so it isn’t necessary to use ribbon but I wrapped it up with a bow (non Stampin’ Up!).  Using the same paper that I used on the sides, I cut out a 2″ circle and used that as my base for the sentiment which comes from the set Painted Petals.

I also used My Digital Studio (MDS), digital software, for the Sprinkle.  I’ll share one of those projects tomorrow! Have a great day!

Amazingly Amazing

My card today uses several more stamps from the stamp set Painted Petals. I practiced stamping the flowers on my grid paper.  I tried stamping the flowers then the stems but then I tried stems first and then the flowers which worked better for me.  I read where another demo cut her flowers apart so that she could have a little more versatility with that particular stamp.  I’m still trying to decide if I would like to do that! I’m leaning towards getting my scissors out!

My sentiment is also included in this set (there are three sentiments altogether in this set).  I’ve had so much fun with this stamp set.

My supplies are listed below and clicking on any of the pictures will take you directly to my online store.

Have a great day!

Another Joy Fold Card

Today I have another Joy Fold card.  This time I embossed my side panels with Daffodil Delight cardstock instead of using Designer Series paper.  I did use the Painted Petals stamp set again and used my Pacific Point and Garden Green stamp pads.  To get the look of two different colors of blue, some of my flowers are stamped directly from the stamp pad to my paper while others are stamped onto my grid paper first and then applied to my paper.  This technique is called stamping off.  I couldn’t resist using the one of the beautiful Something Borrowed Embellishments.  If you didn’t see my post from Monday, click here to see how the card opens up.

Joy Fold Card

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a nice weekend and that your day has started well!

Today I have a Joy Fold card using lots of new products! You can see how the card opens up in my picture below.  I really love the watercolor effect so I think that’s why this stamp set appeals to me so much.  It’s called Painted Petals and I’ve matched it up with the Painted Blooms DSP.  The base of my card is Wild Wasabi and the insert uses my favorite In Color, Blackberry Bliss.  To hold the card closed, I used one of our beautiful shiny Something Borrowed Embellishments.  If you love bling, you’ll really like these!
