Flying Home

The Flying Home is a image set that is filled with sweet little images perfect for all kinds of occasions.

and while it doesn’t have any sentiments included in the set, this makes it perfect for pairing up with the sentiments of your choice.

Today I’m sharing with you one of the cards we made during my Occasions Catalog Kick Off. It’s a total case since I loved it just the way it was. There is a bit of fussy cutting for the nest and butterfly, but that’s well worth it I think.

And as mentioned I’m including a Tutorial for the card so you can make one too! I just love how easy our Stampin’ Blends make coloring this card!

Lots of Lavender Sachet Video Tutorial

I recently held my Occasions Catalog Kick Off the end of December and so I thought I’d share the projects that we made with you over the next few days along with the tutorials for them.  Today’s lavender sachet was their gift for attending.

Everyone was great about the fact I wasn’t able to finish assembling them myself due to a last minute procedure the day before, so it became a third project for them. LOL! I’ve got such a great group of stampers!

We had a lot of fun using the new products and stamping together. Everyone who attended not only made 3 fun projects, but also got to see the fun new products from them for the first time.

Want to see how they are made? I’ve whipped up a quick video tutorial for you and also a printed tutorial too!

Merry Music Post It Note Holder Tutorial

So today not only will I be sharing the tutorial for the Holiday Catalog Kick Off Make n Take, but I’ve also got a little video for you sharing some basics for this stamp set.

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
