Watercolor Wings Spring Frame & New Weekly Deals

I love using my stamping products for home decor and gift items since it gives me a chance to create something extra special. So I wanted to share this fun frame that I made to hold that special photo from Easter this month.

Watercolor Wings Butterfly frame

The base is just one of those inexpensive wooden frames that you can find for a dollar. How did I make it? Well first I used our Stampin’ Glue Sticks to adhere a layer of our Cucumber Crush paper from the 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack to the wooden frame. The Stampin’ Glue Sticks are perfect for this type of project since it has square edges that will fit into corners easily.

Next I made some flowers using our Spiral Flower Die. Sooo quick and easy. Run your Bone Folder down the card stock after cutting it out, roll and adhere. Yep that is it! I did sponge the edges a bit to give it a bit more depth and added a touch or two of the Dazzling Details on the edges to make them look dew kissed.

I made two butterflies and adhered them only in the center so I could bend the wings and give the butterfly a 3d look. And I added a bit more of the Dazzling Details on both pieces to add a bit of shimmer.

I think my daughter will enjoy this little item for her Easter basket. How about you? What do you think of this little frame I made?

Blue Mountain Weekend Retreat Recap

The end of May my friend Anna and I held our first retreat and it seemed to be a hit with those who attended.  It’s taken me a bit but today I thought I’d share some pictures and projects from the retreat from May 29th.

As everyone arrived we had a special name tag on their table along with a New 2015-2016 Annual Catalog, In Color bookmark, flags to mark their pages and a pen decorated with the Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack to use with their wish list and of course a special coupon.

And of course everyone needed a little something chocolate as the night went on. After all we needed to keep our strength up as we crafted into the wee hours of the night. LOL – sounds good at least, after all do we really need a reason for chocolate?

Blue Mountain Weekend with Jini and Anna (2)

This little bag was a lot of fun to make and they are quick and easy once you know the trick. The Pansy Punch that I used is part of this week’s Weekly Deals.

Blue Mountain Weekend with Jini and Anna self closing bag

I’ve made a video tutorial to share how I made these Self Closing Bags using some of our new Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper. Why not check it out? The complete list of supplies used in the tutorial is listed below for you.

Of course, we really enjoyed making these little goodies and pampering our guests and so we’ll look forward to doing another retreat soon. So that’s great news if you missed our first retreat. We’ll be setting a date sometime soon – Just watch for more information coming soon and of course, you can always keep up to date with what’s happing when you join my Monthly Newsletters list.

Sprinkles of Life & More

Are you ready for the NEW Stampin’ Up! 2015-2016 Annual Catalog that kicks off tomorrow? Are you ready to see some of the new products? Well check out these two cards I made using the NEW 2015 In Colors – I think you’re going to love them!

Sprinkles of Life (139971) is our 2015 Ronald McDonald House stamp set. What is great about that? Well for each stamp set you purchase Stampin’ Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House AND you get this great set!

Sprinkles of Life

Can you see the dimension to the ice cream cone? Well that was created using the NEW Tree Builder Punch (139971) that coordinates with the Sprinkles of Life stamp set. Cool right? And who doesn’t love a punch! The Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper (137783) add a touch of interest too and will be gone after tomorrow.

I’ve used three of the five new 2015 – 2017 In Colors on this card – Cucumber Crush , Watermelon Wonder, and Tip Top Taupe. Oh, how I love saying that last color…. it’s just fun to say. Try it … Tip Top Taupe, it just rolls off the tongue! And I think you’ll fall in love with the warm brown too when you see it just like I’ve have.

Want to see more? Well my next card has a totally different look and it uses the soft Mint Macron from the 2015 In Color Collection. I think this color will be great for creating a vintage look.

Buterfly Basics Feel Goods

I’ve used the new Mint Macron Dotted Lace Trim (138428) and the fantastic 2015 In Color Blossom Accents (138383) along with some pearls and the Typeset Specialty Paper (133704) to create this card. And I think the sentiment from the Feel Goods stamp set (129681/131916) makes this a great card for a any young lady who is graduating this month.

Great news – You can see these and a lot of other fantastic new products tomorrow for the first time in my Online Store. Want a catalog of your own? Why not place an order with me and I’ll include one in your order for you!
