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!

Paper Pumpkin Craft Time & Bunny Buddies

Tuesday was our monthly Paper Pumpkin Craft Time for open crafting – if you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin with me this time is for you – It’s my way of saying thank you for choosing me as your demonstrator.) So we spent the morning crafting together and sharing alternative ideas for the March kit.

If you haven’t seen the March kit it is super cute!

The kit always have a quick video in case you don’t want to read the instructions. LOL!

And I love the fact that Stampin’ Up! shares alternate projects for the kit if you don’t like the instructions included.

I’ve even seen the muslin bags whip stitched across the bottom to create a sachet filled with potpourri! Cool right?

So today I thought I’d share with you my alternate project that I made with the kit. I love to give little 3d gifts but don’t tend to use 3×3 note cards as often so I simply took one of our 2″ x 8″ Cello Bags (141703) and put some pencils I had picked up as basket stuffers for the kits and voila!

Cute? I’ve taken some quick shots to show you how I did the ears. I simply punched out a face using the punch 1 1/2″ Circle Punch (138299) and Whisper White Card stock and stamped the face I wanted. There are all kinds of cute combinations you can make with this kit. Then stamped the ears I wanted to use.

I fussy cut the ears and then stamped the floppy ear onto one of the stickers and cut it out before adding it to the ear.

A couple of the glue dots to attach the ears onto the face and added it to my note card that I turned so the opening went over the cello bag. The staple is covered by the bunny. I love the baker’s twine in the kit, so I tied a little bow to put on this little bunny with another glue dot.

The kits always come with lots of stuff that can be used for additional projects! AND these kits are great for all ages!!! Since they contain everything you need except scissors they are great gifts or even kits to take on the road so you can craft. It’s a surprise each month so there are all kinds of different kits.

If this sounds like something you or someone you know would enjoy why not subscribe today? During the next 36 hours (or until March 31st at 11:50 pm MT) you can not only purchase a prepaid subscription to get started, but you can earn a free Sale-a-bration item too!!!
