Bon Voyage Pick A Pennant


Hi everyone!  Here is a list of the supplies I used for my sneak peek card yesterday.  Pick A Pennant is a new stamp set that will be coming out in June (Item 146499.)  It’s also going to be sold as a bundle with the matching Playful Pennants framelits – unfortunately I don’t have those yet so I had to fussy-cut the banners… luckily, it wasn’t that fussy and took no time at all!

This was a fast and simple card to make. The stamp set wasn’t a favourite of mine and had I not received it at OnStage, I’m not sure I would have purchased it.  However, after plying with it for this card, I’ve changed my mind!  I’m really grateful that I have it and can see a lot of opportunities to make some wonderful, personalized cards.


PCC292 Sketch Challenge


Paper Craft Crew

Sketch Challenge #292


Hi everyone!  Today I’m posting my submission to the Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge.  This is the first time I’ve played along with PCC and I really enjoyed working with their sketch and coming up with my design.


I’ve included a project supply list below if you’d like to see all the items I used to create my card.  I added the chair from the seasonal layers thinlits set, however, the florals in the eclectic layers set would have worked just as well.  The touches of nature elements were a great fit and I love how one side is natural while the other side is white.  The overlays I hadn’t played with before and I really liked how the design fit with the rest of the elements in the card yet was subtle.  I think had I used a normal DSP for the banner it would have been too much.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Paper Crafting May 2018 Blog Hop



I hope you are enjoying our Father’s Day themed blog hop. I’m hopping with fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada. You may have arrived from Sandra’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to use the stamp set: Guy Greetings.  It’s such a versatile set and has greetings not just for Father’s Day but also congratulations and birthday.  There’s a variety of images as well, all with a touch of nostalgia.  This stamp set is unfortunately being discontinued so if you don’t own it yet, I’d strongly suggest picking it up before it’s no longer available.  Come back tomorrow for a list of all the products I used for each card.

Ink & Share April 2018 Blog Hop


Hi everyone.  Welcome to the Ink & Share Blog Hop for April 2018.  This month we are focusing on the Occasions Catalogue and all the amazing products that are available until May 31, 2018.  Feel free to download a copy of the catalogue by clicking on the image found on the right hand side of my blog.

I found it so hard to choose just one product but I decided on Hold on to Hope bundle and the silver gable boxes.  As I was going through the Occasions catalogue I really liked the box that was pictured below the stamp set bundle.  I decided that I was going to CASE (copy and share everything,) the gift box from the catty and create a coordinating card.

The box and the card were really fun to make and super fast.  I do think if I were to make the set again, I would use the berry burst ribbon on the box too.  What do you think?img_0197

Coffee Cafe Card and Bag Recipe


As promised, see below for the recipe for the card and gift bag.  I’ve also added a great instructional video from Stampin’ Up! on how to use the gift bag punch board which I found extremely helpful.  A little more helpful had I watched it before doing the first gift bag.. upside down!  So, note to self and others — consider the pattern and which way you want it to be, BEFORE you punch and score. :-/
