Be Mine Scrapbook Layout


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.

Be Mine Stampin' Up!

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.



Have a fabulous day,

Good-bye Holiday, Hello Occasions

Meant to Be Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Today marks the very last day to order retiring stamps and other products from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  If there is something that you don't want to miss, today is your last chance.  But that also means that tomorrow, January 3 opens the all new Stampin' Up! Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs.  To wet you whistle, today's Blog Post has 6 Sneak Peeks for the 2019 Occasions Catalog set to begin tomorrow.

Today's card could be a Valentine or it could be a Wedding Card or it could be an I Love You Card or it could be an Anniversary Card.  It's made with the Meant to Be stamp set, the Be Mine Stitched framelit dies, the Rectangle Stitche Framelit Dies, the All My Love Designer Series Paper and the All My Love Card Stock Pack.  There's also one more Sneak Peek on the inside that I will share later in today's post.

Meant to Be Card by Robin Feicht

Occasions Sneak Peeks 

Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies-We have all seen fun heart dies before, but the new Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies rock my world.  Just look at that fancy dancy heart frame!  And the heart frame next to it will cut out both a solid heart and a a Stitched heart outline.  See them both in the Crumb Cake Card Stock above.  Just look at that fun scalloped stitched edger.  Ooh, La, La!  There's so much more in this set of 16 dies.  These are just 3 highlights.

Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies-The possibilities are endless with this 13 piece Rectangle Die set. Large to small, you'll want to use them all.

Meant to Be Stamp Set- The Meant to Be Stamp set can be bundled with the Be Mine Stitched Framelits die.  Love all the pretty coordinating images and the fun fonts.  And best of all the Meant to Be Stamp set is a new Clingy, Cling stamp set.  No more stamps falling off block with Cling Stamp set.  They are the same quality red rubber as the old clear mount stamp sets, but the new cling design will delight you with a cling stamp that won't fall off your blocks.

All My Love Designer Series Paper and All My Love Card Stock Pack meansHearts and florals in classic romantic colors (Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lipstick, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White and Balmy Blue).  The Card stock pack has 8 sheets each of Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick.  You can also cut out some images using the Lovely Flowers Edgelits dies.


This Meant to Be card may be all hearts and loveliness on the outside, but inside I just had to have a little fun with the last Sneak Peek of the day, the Hey Love stamp set.  Isn't the smiling Ape hugging the heart just so stinkin' cute?  Those of you that are familiar with our family history know that we started with 6 rough and tumble sons.  Over the years with have added 5 beautiful Daughter-In-Laws, 9 Grandsons and  5 Granddaughters, but our beginning were very masculine and the lovable ape is a humorous way of remembering how it all started.  The photo was taken at our first wedding.  Pictured left to right:  Bryan, Ben (the groom), Jonathan, Bob, Andrew, Jeremiah.

Note:  The happy anniversary stamp is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.Freshly Made SketchesA Big Thanks to Freshly Made Sketches for today's card sketch.  It was a great jump start for today's card.


Have a fabulous day,

Christmas Pines Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

The Christmas Pines stamp set has been around for a few years now, but it's such a drop dead gorgeous stamp set that you just know that when it does retire it will land on Ebay and go for some outrageous price because it's a must have set.  And it's one of many Big Catalog stamp sets that is 10% off yesterday and today for the Stampin' Up! Online Extravaganza Sale!

Feicht Christmas Tree Adventure

Christmas Pines was on my mind this weekend, since we made our annual family trip to our local Christmas Tree Farm.  And this year, our kids and grandkids made it up from Georgia to join in the adventure.  If you are ever in central Ohio this time of year, I highly recommend Kleerview Christmas Trees.

Feicht Grandchildren

It's so much more than just going to buy a Christmas tree.  It's a family adventure.  It's a ride in the wagon up to the Farm House to see all the fun new Christmas decorations.  It's hot chocolate, baby farm animals and Santa with his real live reindeer.  Here's 5 of my precious grandchildren on the ride up to the farmhouse.  I will definitely be scrapbooking some of these pictures with the Christmas Pines stamp set.

Anyway, let's get back to today's card.

Christmas Pines Stampin' Up

Card Design Tips

My pine branches were stamped with Mossy Meadow ink.  I also cut with my Pretty Pines Dies more greenery in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive.

The pine cones were also cut with the Pretty Pines dies.  

I heat embossed my sentiment in gold on Merry Merlot card stock and cut it with my Stitched Shapes dies.  The bow was also cut with the Pretty Pines dies from Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper.

I splattered the whole thing with Merry Merlot Ink and an Aqua Painter.

If you look closely, you'll spot a fun new product from the upcoming Occasions Catalog.  Do you see it?  It's Old Olive Linen Thread!  Be still my beating heart.
