Bloomin’ Love Note Holders & More

Today’s projects are some that I made for my daughter and her college friends. After all who doesn’t need post its when you’re writing all those college papers, right? I know my desk is littered with all kinds of notes – over the years them become my to do lists. LOL!

Bloomin Love Post it note holders (3)

I found these cute little note pads at my local dollar spot and knew they would be perfect for the kids. This first one is an easel holder. I wanted to make it look like the  notes conversation hearts  – so I chose one of the sentiments and stamped it onto So Saffron card stock and then punched it out using my Sweetheart Punch (133786).

Bloomin Love Post it note holders (4)

I used the soft Wisteria Wonder pattern from the Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper Stack (140567) to add a bit more umpf. And keeping it soft, I teamed it up with the Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride card stock. The colors once again reminded me of the conversation hearts that have been around forever.

This second little note pad is a bit more elegant and holds the second post it note pad that came in the package – since it only had two little hearts in the corner of the pad I went a bit bolder and used our Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper (140655) and pulled the colors Watermelon Wonder and Mossy Meadow for the card stock base.

I then used my Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp. I added a third color, Early Espresso, for the words and of course once again the Watermelon Wonder and Mossy Meadow from the In Colors.

I love punches, they make things so easy and my 2″ Circle was perfect for this sentiment. If you’re new to stamping our circles and scallop circles are a great place to start – they’ll make quick and easy focal points such as these!

And the final project for today is a card that uses the Bloomin Love stamp set.

Bloomin Love Stamp Divas Swap 2016

It’s raining once again here in North Georgia so it was tough to get a good photo. I hope you can see the richness of this Gold Embossed heart.  Maria used the soft Blushing Bride card stock and teamed it up with our Basic Black for this classic look.

So which is your favorite?

Bloomin’ Love

Have you seen the Bloomin’ Love stamp set in the Occasions Catalog? It’s got some great images and a coordinating Thinlits Die that is gorgeous. While this set is great for Valentine’s it is also wonderful for other occasions such as anniversaries and weddings.

Here are two cards I received in my recent swap that use the Bloomin’ Love suite of products.

This first one is from Joanne – simple and sweet. I love the bit of Pink Pirouette Seam Binding that adds more texture to the card.

Bloomin' Love SC Occasions Swap 2016 (1)

I’ve given you the full supply list below.

And this second one is from Marni  – Isn’t the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper lovely? I find I am reaching for it time and again. I can’t get enough of this stuff.

Bloomin' Love SC Occasions Swap 2016 (2)

Marni also used the sequins from our Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit (140551) to add a bit of bling.

Then stop by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing more cards with you that use this suite of products.

Bear Hugs & What I Love

Do you love bears? If so, I think you’ll love this cute card that I received from Marilynn in my recent swap. It uses our Bear Hugs Bundle (140822/140823) found on page 40 of the Occasions Catalog.

Bear Hugs 2016 SC Occasions Catalog swap

This card is perfect for Valentine’s Day since it was teamed up with our Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack.  I like the fun addition of the Silver Glimmer Paper for the bow time and skirt too. What do you think?

And this second card is from our exclusive Sale-a-bration selection of stamps. The What I Love stamp set (141276) is a photopolymer set that includes 10 stamps. It is considered a two step stamp since you can build layers of color to create more depth.

What I Love 2016 SC SAB Catalog Swap

Two step stamps are a lot of fun to play with because the color combinations are endless and allow you to create a ton of different looks from just one set of stamps.

Laura used Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant to create this lovely blossom. And can you see the elegant Venetian Crochet Trim (134581) peaking out from behind the Modern Mosaic (129984) embossed layer? What a great way to use this trim!

Hello Life Valentine Petite Cafe’ Bags

Have you seen the Hello Life stamp set found on page 31 in the Occasions Catalog? I find myself reaching for this fun set time and time again. The images are a great size for all kinds of projects!

Here is a Petite Café bag that I created for my daughter and her friends for Valentine’s Day during my weekend retreat.

Hello Life Playdoh treat bags (2)

Can you guess what the treat contains? There is a funny story attached to this treats and everyone at the retreat thought it was rather funny what I was placing inside when I showed them what I was working with!

I chose our Petite Café Bags since they were shape “forgiving” and my little treat was an odd shape. Here is the completed bags – one for each friend.

Hello Life Playdoh treat bags (1)

Want to know what is inside? Well of course I had to add a little bit of chocolate since who can’t use a little chocolate in their lives, right? But the “big” item my daughter picked out while checking out the clearance isle in our local Wally world…….

Playdoh

Yep…. Play-doh! Would you believe? I was shocked when she got so excited about this find on the shelf. But apparently she and college friends are going to have a blast with the Play-doh. She picked out a different color  for each one to have during those stressful college days! LOL. I’m hoping she’ll take some photos for me. I’d love to see the group and what they end up making together! (Isn’t it great – It’s fun to see that little glimmer of the young child she used to be – my kids loved spending hours playing with the homemade play-doh on our kitchen table. Sigh… they grow up sooo fast!)

And today, I thought I’d share a personal photo of the view out my window, or lack there of! LOL  Believe it or not their is a beautiful hillside view the fog is hiding.

Fog

I don’t know what the weather is doing in your neck of the woods, but here in Clarkesville it’s like pea soup – Thankfully I didn’t need to go out today since visibility is awful – but I do have to say I miss the sunshine. One thing about living in Wisconsin growing up, it may have been very cold, but it seemed like it was always bright in the winter. I guess it was the snow reflecting the light, but then it’s been a long time so maybe it is just my childhood memory isn’t really that accurate. Anyhow – seems like a good day to stamp since I feel like cocooning!

Groovy Love

I’m hoping everyone had a wonderful New Years Day and will find 2015 a healthy, happy,  and prosperous one!

Well my New Years Eve was rather crazy since I had to handle last minute unplanned appointments for follow up tests – so I didn’t get to post the project as planned. Bad news for my plans, but good news for me. LOL

The house was also filled with quite a few young adults who had come to ring in the new year with our children. Some of the gang crashed overnight in my classroom on the floor! Here they are around the breakfast table on New Years Day – It was a very late night but lots of fun and they worked up quiet an appetite the night before. (That is our son, Johnathan on the right.)

New Years Day Party

So instead I’m playing catch up and I’m going to share our project that we made at the Customer Appreciation Day  with you today.

Groovy Love Customer Appreciation Day

This card that I cased uses the Groovy Love stamp set (134243/134246) that you can find in our Annual Catalog (on page 110). The set has some fun trendy images that coordinate with our Sweetheart Punch (133786) so it’s fun and easy to use.

And do you see the Fun Frames Embossing Folder (133727) that we used as a back drop? We simply ran our card stock through the Big Shot without any tabs and then sponged it lightly with Crumb Cake ink to make it pop! Love the technique and the vintage feel of the card.

For my little bow I simply layered the Crochet Trim, Strawberry Slush Baker’s Twine and then pulled a few strands off my Burlap Ribbon and wrapped it around the two and tied my bow. Love this Burlap Ribbon it can be used all kinds of ways!

What do you think? Great for Valentine’s Day or what?
