Make Your Dreams Happen

Make Your Dreams Happen

Hello Friends,

In honor of Martin Luther King  and his I Have a Dream speech, I've made a simple, but sweet Make Your Dreams Happen Card.  The sentiment is from the Sunny Days Stamp.  I stamped on vellum so that you could see the fun patterns and shapes through the sentiment.  The Hearts are the Be Mine Framelits Dies and the happy Designer Paper is Gingham Gala Designer Paper from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.

Stamping on Vellum Tip

Because vellum is a nonporous surface, the ink will dry considerably slower so drying your ink with a heat or setting it aside to dry is a good idea.  Stazon ink is also made for stamping on non-porous surfaces.


Dream Card by Robin Feicht

For a patriot feel, today's colors are Real Red, Blueberry Bushel, Balmy Blue and Whisper White.  For more inspiration using the Be Mine Framelits Dies check out the 2 posts below.

Hello Friends,

If you were here yesterday, you know that I made a card with the Be Mine Framelits Dies from Stampin' Up! and that I was so impressed with the dies that I wanted to try a Scrapbook Layout.  You may also notice that today's You Make Me Smile Scrapbook Layout looks a lot like yesterday's card only expanded with a picture of my granddaughter, Sadie.

Scrapbook Design Tips

There are just so many beautiful dies in the Be Mine Framelits die set.  I simply cut a variety in mostly Whisper White with a touch of Flirty Flamingo and Vellum thrown in for good measure.  The white on white looks so classy with just a pop of color.

Are you one of those people that struggle with choosing which side of the designer paper to use?  Here's a thought.  I used both sides of my All My Love Designer Paper making my title bar.  I cut Sadie's name with my Large Letter Framelits Dies, then used the reverse side of my paper to make my band.


You Make Me Smile Scrapbook

Sadie's surprised look picture looks adorable all by itself, but to add just a little interest, I ran the picture through my Big Shot with my Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.

Here's 2 Tips for using vellum on your Scrapbook pages.  Because vellum is a nonporous surface, stamp with Jet Black Stazon ink.  I used a sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.  The second tip involves ninja tricks for securing vellum without leaving telltale adhesive marks.  Tuck the vellum behind something that is solid like I did with my card stock.  Then place your adhesive on the vellum behind the card stock.

Speaking of hearts, I want to thank you for all your thoughts and prayers for my Dad.  He is doing well after a 5 Bypass Surgery.
