Love You to Pieces Scrapbook Layout

Hello Friends, 

It's time for  a Scrapbook Layout.  I just received a batch of pictures back and I have been waiting for the opportunity to make a Love You to Pieces Scrapbook Layout with the Love You to Pieces Stamp Set and the Puzzle Pieces Dies.  I had a selection of pictures of 4 of my Grandchildren frog hunting in our backyard that almost perfectly matched the Best Route Designer Series Paper.  Oh the joy on their faces when they scoop up a frog.  It's precious!

Love You to Pieces Stampin' Up!

I stamped my Puzzle Pieces Title with  Mango Melody and Blueberry Bushel Inks and  with my Love You to Pieces stamp set.  Various pieces of Best Route Designer paper set the stage.

Frog Hunting Scrapbook Page

For my journaling, I used the Make a Difference stamp set and my Stitched Shapes dies.  The little frog embellishment was cut from the Animal Expedition Designer Paper.  Hint: The Animal Friends Dies perfectly matches the frog on the limb.

Mother's Day Card & Scrapbook Layout

Stitched All Around Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Mother's Day is this weekend, so I thought that I would share with you the card that I made for my Mother and also a scrapbook page honoring her.  I used something old, something new, nothing borrowed, but something blue.  Sorry, I just couldn't resist. 

For something old, I used the spectacular, retiring Petal Passions Designer paper and my beloved Pink Pirouette card stock which is also retiring.  The Petal Passions Paper looks fabulous left black and white, but today I had a fun coloring it with my Stampin' Blends.

And for something new...

Stitched All Around Stampin' Up!

.....I'm sharing a Sneak Peek of the hot new Stitched Around Bundle.  The man in brown made a delivery to my house yesterday much to my delight.  As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I was able to place a preorder last week so I was able to order all the new color ink pads and one of my favorite new bundles from the 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Catalog, the Stitched All Around Bundle.  Love, love, love all the stitched shapes and did you notice the little embossed space above my Mom's picture?  It's an embossing piece that included in the Stitched Labels Framelits!

I'm finding that our 6" x 8" Albums are a really nice scrapbooking size.  They are just a bit bigger than a card and a similar shape, so it's a lot like making a card, only I'm saving a memory instead.

Stitched All Around Stampin' Up!

Nothing borrowed, but something blue.  My blue is the new Medium Night of Navy Baker's Twine.  You're going to like the medium twine.  It's more substantial than the regular Baker's Twine, but not so bulky as the thick Baker's Twine.  I also colored a few of my flowers blue.

Bottom line as far as shopping goes, if the Petal Passion Paper or Pink Pirouette Card Stock is on your must have list hop on over to my Online store and get it before it's gone forever.  And if you're dying to get your hands on the fabulous Stitched All Around Bundle,  it will be available with the launch of the 2018-2019 Catalog starting June 1.

Celebrating 12 Beautiful, Cute, Happy Paper Crafts of 2017

Beautiful You Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Do you have any idea how hard it is to pick just 12 of your favorite paper crafts from a whole year's worth of Paper crafts?  I'll attempt to do that for you, but I wonder what your top 12 picks would be.  I had January narrowed down to 3 Crafty picks.  They were a beautiful, yet cute card filled with hearts, a miniature envelope and an arrow or an adorable love you lots baker's box with a happy frog.  I ended up choosing the Beautiful You Card for its simplicity and beauty, plus it's happy.

 Note:  I'll be taking a week or so off to spend with family, so hopefully you will enjoy these 12 plus favorite Paper Crafts of 2017.  See you again in January.

Penned & Painted Get Well Card


Let's stroll on over to February, the month of Love, for my next crafty pick.  Wow, February's Gallery was gorgeous!  It was hard to choose, but I settled on this crisp, red and white Penned & Painted Get Well Card.  A close second was another lovely Penned and Painted Card

You've Got This Handmade Card

March's Card was really chosen for me.  This is card card that truly is more beautiful in real life.  All my local ladies requested that we make this card at classes and clubs.  Click here for some close up pictures that are sure to dazzle you and for details on how to make this card.


Nailed It Stampin' Up!


For April's Card, I went with my favorite masculine card of the year.  April must be the month for handsome cards.  But I would be remise if I didn't mention the 2 runners up.  If you like interactive cards, you'll appreciate this honey bee spinner card.  And Swirly Bird in a bow tie Card was in the running for its cuteness factor.


Hand Stamped Spring Card

 My May Top Pick was chosen for its happy factor.  It's just so light, bright and cheerful.  Find Out More About this happy spring time card here.  May runners up were this handsome Lighthouse Sketch Card and this something to crow about card.  I love all the eclectic elements and the bold uneven polka dots of the crow about card and the Lighthouse card is plain sharp.


Dalsy Delight Stampin' Up!

The hands down winner for June is these lovely paper daisies.  My daisies in a garden pot received loads of compliments and it features the Stampin' Up!'s hottest punch in 7 years, the Daisy Punch.  Plus, it's a great project to walk into summer.  Find out more about making this beautiful 3-D Daisy arrangement here.  By the way, the daisy stems were fashioned with raffia.


A Little Wild Stampin' Up!

Since we are taking a trip down memories lane, I choose this Life looks beautiful on you card because it reminds me of the Incentive Trip that Joe and I took to Thailand with Stampin' Up! this year.  The idea for this card was sparked by a painting made by a Thailand artist.  Of course, we brought the painting home too.  Get all the details.


Painted Harvest Stampin' Up!

In my mind, August was a tie between this Night in Bethlehem Card and this Painted Harvest card.  I chose the Painted Autumn card because it seems to fit better for an August Paper Craft Winner.


Vintage Leaves Stampin' Up!

For September, this bright and beautiful Vintage Leaves card won first prize because it practically shouts hello fall.  But, I also like this Altered Altoids Tin because it takes a common item and repurposes it into something beautiful and useful.  But this Mason Jar card also says autumn in a beautiful way.

Handmade Christmas Card & Gift Box

My October favorite pick has 3 much loved components-Pretty Pines, Buffalo Plaid Paper (Merry Little Christmas Designer Paper) and a Mini Pizza Box.  Plus, there's the coordinating card and treat box.  Find out more about this October loveliness here.

Smitten Mittens Stampin' Up!

My favorite Paper Craft for November is also in the running for my favorite project of the year, subject to change, of course.  Love the sweet mittens and the navy gingham ribbon and the pretty pines nestled on the mini pizza box.  Get all the little details.


Smitten Mittens Memory Keeping

 Since we are taking a trip down memory lane, I chose a memory keeping moment for my December Crafty Pick.  This scrapbook layout warms my heart.  Get the sweet details.

Would you have chosen the projects differently?  I love to hear from you.  Express your thoughts in the comments of this post.
