Mini Pizza Box - Spoiler Alert!

That time of year is coming.  Each spring and fall I hold a scrapbooking crop.  People come from all over and work on scrapbooks, make cards, I have a make-n-take... there are door prizes and raffle baskets and awesome food. 

My Spring Scrapbooking crop is coming up next weekend, May 3rd and 4th.  May 4th is National Scrapbooking Day!  And at each event, I always provide a table favor for each guest.  Just a small gift inside; we have done candy, nail polish, soaps, candles, just a small something to say thank you for attending and to let people know where their assigned spot it. 

This time I decided to use our adorable Mini Pizza Boxes, decorated with Rich Razzleberry card stock and Velvet ribbon, Share What You Love Designer Series Paper, Pearlized Doilies, and a Gold Faceted Gem.  You can get quick links and product pics below.   The Share What You Love DSP will be retiring soon and it is gorgeous.  One side features pearlized elements in the flowers and/or leave.  So pretty!

So the box below still needs a label punch added with the guests name but I will do that when setting up.  I am excited as we will have about 75 ladies this time.

Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Paper

So I just do not know where the last week and a half went.  Here we are with the Easter holiday over and in six days, it will be May!  My mom sure was right... time does go by faster as you get older.  And guess what?  I don't like it!!!  

Before we know it, the 2019-2020 Annual catalog will be here so I wanted to show you something that will be retiring.  Our Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.  Look at these quick and easy cards I put together in no time.  The best part is the paper is white on one side and Petal Pink on the other so I did designs showing both and changed up little elements here-n-there.


(note:  picture above with dark leaves, leaves/flowers came from Wonderful Romance stamp set still available.  Unfortunately, the dies are already out-of-stock and retiring.  That is also where the oval die came from.  You can replace with a standard Oval die or Stitched Framelit)

Sea of Textures for Father's Day

Okay, I need to start by sharing how excited I am that the GLITTER ENAMEL DOTS will be carrying over to the 2019-2020 catalog!  These are the best enamel dots ever.  The are sparkly, colorful (one sheet has four bright colors), and they are not bulky, so excellent for mailing.

Sea of Texture's Bundle is retiring!


I have had a late love bloom for the Sea of Textures Bundle (stamps and dies).  I think it was the octopus image that scared me away but the sand dollars, netting, and coral are great. I got the card idea from one of my Team members, Sandy Bennett.  Thanks Sandy!

Coastal Cabana is my card base and ink used on the Pool Party piece of card stock to add texture.  The Pool Party card stock is cut 4-1/4" x 2-1/2"

Whisper White card stock is also cut 4-1/4" x 2-1/2" and ran through the Big Shot with Wood Textures embossing folder.  Ha!  Ha!  Did you notice my lines are at an angle?  My card stock slipped in the folder and I never noticed.  All well... adds more dimension I guess. 

Soft Suede card stock is 4-1/4" x 1-1/2" and stamped with the Soft Suede Ink.

Elements:  long coral is Pool Party card stock, small coral is cut with Soft Suede and Calypso Coral card stock, Netting is Crumb Cake and the Sand Dollars are Whisper White sponged with a little Soft Suede ink.

Easter Lily... okay, I know, It's a Daffodil 😊





I know this is a retired set (You're Inspiring) from the 2018 Occasions catalog, but I had a special request for a spring flower Easter card so I decided to share with you.  You can use any stamp image you would like in place of the daffodils. 

Both cards were colored with Stampin' Blends!  The yellow part is a combination of Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody, both dark markers.  I used the Light and Dark Old Olive for the leaves and stems. 

The top card is stamped in Black Memento Ink on Whisper White Card Stock and then colored in using the Stampin' Blends.

The bottom card is colored on the Backside of Vellum!  I heat embossed the image using white embossing powder and color on the opposite side with your Blends.  Love that technique! And it is forgiving on coloring in the lines. 

Happy spring and Happy Easter!

First Steps - Baby Boy & Girl

These sweet baby cards... I fell in love with those little toes!  Very cute set.  Check out the full set to see all the phrases and Hand Prints too. My supply list is below. 

I used the Rectangular Stitched Framelits.  These are great and they mat each other so no guessing on cutting your paper the correct size.  Just chose two framelits and cut.
