Wood Words Tutorial

This card was hands down everyone’s favorite at my Catalog Kick Off this month and so I thought you would enjoy seeing it too.

This stamp set was one of the first that I got from the NEW 2017 Annual Catalog. I couldn’t resist the little Wood Crate Framelits Dies (143730) that were part of the bundle when I saw them. After all I LOVE 3d items that I can use as gifts filled with a few goodies.

If you haven’t seen the Copper Trim it is fantastic. I’ve used it in bow form here, but you can see just how versatile it is on my card HERE. And I’ve already used loads of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack (144177)!

Want to see just how easy this card is to make? Here is a tutorial showing you how it was made.

So Many Shells Tutorial

Today’s card is one that I made for my team Shoe box Swap this past Saturday. The So Many Shells was a stamp set I couldn’t pass up with it’s wonderful shell images. You know me I can never resist a set that is beach themed!

The sentiments in the set also cover a wide variety of needs which is always a bonus. Isn’t the font lovely?

So here is the card I created.

I stamped the Marbled Background onto Vellum to give it more of a translucent water feel to it. And I love the Copper Trim! Tug and pull and it turns into what looks like a net! Perfect for this project.

I hope you’ll enjoy making this card too. Here is my FREE Tutorial for the card.

Catalog Kick Off Fun!

Saturday we kicked off the 2017 Catalog launch with a fun event where we made 3 cards using new product and stamp sets from Annual Catalog. I love these events since they are always a lot of fun – after all who doesn’t love a new catalog, right? LOL!

Today I thought I’d share some photos of the class room and what everyone received when they attended. I had lots of great cards to share on display that I’ll also be sharing with you on my blog. I totally revamped my chalk board displays and even added a little shelf since one of them needed repair.

Along with some of our new products

Want to see what greeted everyone at their places? I made these cute little name tags using the Daisy Delight Bundle.

Everyone who attended received a NEW Catalog, of course. Along with a 2017 In Color Swatches and Bookmark to hold their spot, chocolate, and a special little post it note flag holder. (I’ll be sharing some videos later this week on these projects – so watch for them in the up coming days.)

Mean while here is one of the cards we made using the Ribbon of Courage stamp set (143852/143855).

This set is also has coordinating Framelits Dies, Support Ribbon (143749) to make it easier to use yet! You get get both in our money saving bundle (145341/145342) and save 10%.

This set not only contains two different ribbons, it also contains some wonderful sentiments. Customize the ribbon with the color you need and you have a wonderful card to share with a friend or loved one.

I’m including a FREE Tutorial for you for this card

Suite Sayings

I made this bold, quick and easy card for recent Thank You’s that I sent out, but the layout is one of those versatile layouts you can use for any occasion!

I had fun with lot’s of with the different bold patterns in the Moroccan Designer Series Paper.

Don’t you love these type of layouts? Simply change the sentiment and you have a great birthday card! For this one I used the Tin of Cards Stamp Set (138946). I’m really sad to see this set go since I love the size and font used for the sentient.

I left off the ribbon from this one since I needed a masculine birthday card.

Fun & Flirty Flip Flops

What says summer more than a new pair of flip flops? Today’s card uses our fun bold Designer Series Paper, Festive Birthday to create these fun cactus flip flops.

Seaside Shore Flip Flops (1)

I’ve had several of you ask me how I created these when you saw my shoe box card HERE.

So I thought I’ve put together a video tutorial on how they are made. And I included some tips to make things easier.

Want the pattern? Well I’ve made one up just for you!

Flip Flop Pattern Printable PDF

So, what kind of flip flops do you like? Plain, bright and colorful, or wild patterns? Why not leave me a comment and let me know.

What’s Happening Here?

On a personal note I thought I’d share with you what is happening with all this wood my son, Johnathan and I  brought home on June 20th. (Click HERE to see that post).

June 20 2016 wood for classroom

I’m excited to say my guys are making great progress on the project… my classroom!

June 2016 Classroom storage (4)

Johnathan is always happy playing with his “toys” in the garage. (He built his garage cabinetry that you see in the background over his winter break.)

June 2016 Classroom storage (1)

Over the weekend they finished the 12 x 12 paper storage unit.

June 2016 Classroom storage (2)

and the base cabinet too! Wow that was fast!!!

June 2016 Classroom storage (3)

I can’t tell you how excited I am to get painting! And you know how I dislike painting. LOL!!!

Right now, I’m trying to decide a new paint color for the classroom walls. After all, with this great cabinetry going in I need a new coat of paint, right?

I’ve got it narrowed down to two choices at this point.

classroom paint swatches

A more bold one and a safe one. I’m trying to decide how crazy I want to be LOL!!! Pool Party or Sahara Sand ???? Hmmm…. what do you think? I’ve changed my mind so many times already, but these are the two I keep coming back to since I love the Island Indigo display item I already have.

What color would you choose?

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Seaside Shore (141622/141625)

Inks: Melon Mambo (115320), Crumb Cake (126975), and Soft Suede Classic Ink (126978)
