Happy Friday! In going back through my recent projects, I found a few from the Tea Boutique that I hadn't shared yet. This is one of my favorites. The soft yellow background was made using our blending brushes to add just a little bit of yellow ink. I love how this softens the white background. If you haven't gotten your own Tea Boutique Suite, now is your chance to get it and get a Sale-a-bration freebie too. For every $50 you spend, … [Read more...] about Cup of Friendship
On Monday I shared one the new Stampin Up planner kit that you get for FREE when you sign up to be a demonstrator during Sale-a-bration. One of the perks about joining Stampin Up, is of course the discount you get on all your purchases. Personally, I think one of the best perks is our Events! Stampin Up knows how to host a great event. Stampin Up held an online event in June called Creativity Now. This was a three hour event that was … [Read more...] about Creativity Now
For the second year in a row, Stampin Up is having Sale-a-bration again during the Summer. Hooray! We always has a really great special for those that are interested in joining Stampin Up. And this time is no different. I absolutely love this year's special, the Making Plans planner kit. The kit comes with the planner, three notebooks, and the coordinating stamp set. This is what the inside of the planner looks like and some of the … [Read more...] about It’s A Plan!
Today's card was inspired by Stampin Up's Paper Pumpkin add for July. I'm really looking forward to seeing what the July kit will look like. Here is our sneak peak for the theme. In the meantime, this is my version of that Paper Pumpkin ad. My card uses the Vintage Bottle Shaker dome. And I've added a rolled up message inside the dome. The message is tied with our linen thread. I don't know if the Paper Pumpkin kit will include the … [Read more...] about Message In A Bottle
It's officially Summer, which means that it's time for a vacation! I definitely wanted to use a vacation theme for this month, but couldn't decide what kind of vacation I should make. Road trips are always fun. I love traveling by airplane. And I know that cruises are super popular. I came across this paper in my stash and new it would be perfect for a cruise theme. So Cruise it is! Several people have asked what I do with the samplers. I … [Read more...] about June Sampler-Bon Voyage
I've got one last project for you using the Butterfly Kisses Suite. I saw an idea online using one of the wing dies from the suite to make some hearts on a card. I thought it was a pretty clever idea. I die cut nine of the wings out of our watercolor paper. Then I water colored each one in each of the nine colors I picked out. I love the rainbow look. It's so colorful and happy. These are the nine colors I used. I love stretching … [Read more...] about One Last Butterfly
We are down to the last week of the January to June Catalog. I can't believe we're at the end already! There are so many great things on the retiring list. You can see the list here: Everything on the list is while supplies last. So, once it sells out, it is gone. Also, the brand new bundles in this catalog will all be retiring as well. The stamp sets and dies/punches may carry forward in the Annual Catalog, but they will no longer … [Read more...] about One Week Left…
Last week, I shared some bright butterflies. One question I got was, do I need this Suite if I'm not into the bold colors? Well, I'll leave that decision up to you... but here's a much softer option using the same Butterfly Kisses Suite. Oh my goodness, the soft purple and yellow is just so pretty together. This gives a really different look to the stamp set. The pattern paper is from the same pack as the bold stripes. I love that the pack … [Read more...] about A Really Different Look
