Home To Roost

Good morning everyone! I have a brand new product of the week for you. It is another Sale-A-Bration set…there is only one more month of Sale-A-Bration left to go. But not to worry, there will still be plenty of amazing products and offers to take advantage of once it is over. Until then, let’s keep Sale-A-Brating with this new Product of the Week. I decided on Home to Roost this week.

This is one of the NEW cling mount sets, and it clings to the clear blocks like a dream. If you have not gotten your hands on a cling stamp yet, you have to try them. Take a look at a couple projects that Stampin’ Up! created using this cute set.

I will have some adorable little projects for you over the next few days, I am sure you will fall in love with this set like I have.

Product List

Painted Seasons Bundle

Hi everyone! Today was supposed to be my Live Paper Pumpkin Event, but due to being under the weather and not having much of a voice, I had to cancel. As a result, I have a different video and project to share with you.

The above video showcases the Painted Seasons Bundle and the coordinating framelits that will be available on Friday March 1st! Below I have a sneak peek of my Paper Pumpkin projects that feature some of the items from Painted Seasons.

I hope you like the cards, and I can’t wait to share all of my alternatives with you on Friday, depending on weather or not I am feeling better. Happy Stamping!

Painted Seasons

Yesterday I shared with you the beautiful painted seasons bundle that is available for FREE with any $100 order during Sale-A-Bration. It is a beautiful, versatile set and I absolutely love it!! I don’t think I could possibly be anymore excited about a stamp set and matching DSP. Here is that beautiful bundle again!

Today I have some pretty cards to share with you. The idea for these cards came from Libby Fens. You can see her cards here. I changed up the colors a little, used a different punch, and different greetings. This just shows how many different ways you can use the paper.

For these cards, I started with an 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ card base. Score the card in half at 4 1/4″. Cut a 1 3/4″ strip off of the side that will be your card front, this strip will measure 1 3/4″ X 5 1/2″. Score this piece in half at 2 3/4″ and adhere one half to the back of your card. Each piece of DSP is 5″ X 2″. One gets adhered to the card front and the other to the inside. The piece that you put inside will go on top of a piece of Whisper White card stock that measures 3 3/4″ X 5″. I used the Pretty Lable punch for my greetings.

Product List

Don’t forget about the February Hostess Code…you have until Thursday to place an order so you can get your FREE package of Rhinestones.

Home To Roost

Hello! I have a cute little note card for you today. I made it with the Home to Roost Sale-A-Bration set and the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.

20190207_043320.jpg

This is a cute little set that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it. You can earn it for FREE with a $50 purchase.

20190207_043343.jpg

I water colored the rooster using my water color pencils and aquapainter.

20190207_043336.jpg

My tag with my sentiment came out a little too big, but I undid some linen thread and attached it underneath, and I was happy with the overall appearance.

Hope you liked my little card today, and I hope you have some time to stamp today!

Be Mine Valentine

Good morning everyone! I’m here to show case my January 2019 Paper Pumpkin alternatives.The January kit was titled Be Mine Valentine, and it was designed to coordinate with the Animal Expedition suite in the annual catalog (don’t have the current catalogs? Contact me today and I will get you one in the mail). This kit came with everything you need to create 24 adorable Pillow Boxes to fill with Valentine treats! This is the reason I love Paper Pumpkin. The only thing I have to add each month is a clear block (which I got for FREE in my first kit) and a pair of scissors.

01.19_PP_KITCONTENTS

So, I usually create one or two of the intended projects, this way I can show you what they look like and any tips or tricks for making assembly easier.

01.19_PP_YOUTUBE

Once you are done with the kit, you have a stamp set and an ink spot that you can continue to use over and over again. This is why I will think outside of the box and create some alternative projects that you can make. The February kit is going to be adorable. In case you missed it, here is a little sneak peek!

Sign up for Paper Pumpkin here by February 10th, and I will enter you in a drawing to win a new, unopened January kit! Below are my alternative projects for January!

20190207_044227.jpg

This first one uses the chameleon cut out, the stamp set, and a few of the epoxy hearts. I used Pool Party card stock and ink and a piece of the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper from my stash of stuff.

For this card, I used Flirty Flamingo card stock and ink and Melon Mambo ink. I used one each of the kangaroo and chameleon cut outs and a few of the heart cut outs.

20190207_044419.jpg

So this one uses almost all of the kit items except for the card base. I used Melon Mambo card stock for my base. The layer that the heart is on id a piece of one of the pillow boxes. I flipped one of the hearts from the kit over and colored it with my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write marker.

I want to remind everyone about my By Mail Note Card class for this month. You can email me to register for the class up until the 15th of this month. This months note cards are going to use a Sale-A-Bration item. The So Hoppy Together stamp set.

149725G

There are 2 purchasing options this month.

Option #1: PDF Tutorial only ~ $15

Option #2: PDF Tutorial and Pre-Cut Notecard kit ~ $35

This option includes the PDF, a full package of Note cards and envelopes, a bolt of the Braided Linen Ribbon, and all of the pre-cut and pre-measured items to make 2 each of 5 designs and an adorable little box to hold all 10 cards. Plus you will have ribbon and Note Cards left over to make more! E-mail me at sugarandscrapsmail@gmail.com and let me know which option you would like!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This final card is the one that I showcased in my video. I used an 8 1/2″ X 11″ piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock. I cut a strip of the Animal Expedition DSP 2 1/4″ X 5 1/2″. I punched a 2″ circle out of Whisper White card stock. Stamp your image and sentiment on the white circle and color in your image. I used my Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Berry Burst Stampin’ Write Markers.

A few other pieces of info before I let you go today. Sale-A-Bration 2nd release starts February 15th and there are some really cute items. There are also some coordinating products that are going to be available starting March 1st. These items will coordinate with the Sale-A-Bration items.

Happy February!

Happy February! There is so much happening this month and I can’t wait to share it all with you.

There was so much I wanted to do kast month, and I just and no creative spark. This month, I am going to try a back to basics approach and I am going to adopt the Stampin’ Up! #simplestamping mind set. I have been so focus on making elaborate, detailed cards that my creative juices are not flowing. The idea behind simple stamping is that you create using only stamps, ink, and paper. This should help me get my ideas flowing again. Don’t worry though, I will still be using my other items too. Especially with all of the NEW Sale-A-Bration items that are debuting shortly!
