Heartfelt Love Notes

My sincerest apologies for not posting for several days.  I had one of my infusions last Wednesday followed by some devastating news on Thursday – one of my friends who had been battling ovarian cancer died.  She was a few years younger than me and was about to be a “memaw” for a second time.  I have been in the dumps since hearing this terrible news.

So when my January Paper Pumpkin kit arrived this last week I at least had something to look forward to.  This month’s kit is called Heartfelt Love Notes and provides you with enough supplies to make 16 love notes (eight each of two designs).  I pretty much followed the instructions included with the kit, but I see I put my labels on the opposite card bases than the directions indicated.  (Oh well!)

Each card measures 3.50″ x 5.00″ and the kit includes an envelope for each card.

Watch the below video from Paper Pumpkin that shows how to assemble the kit as well as what’s on the inside once you untie the ribbon!

You can send these cards to your loved ones (or friends) as is or you can include a little treat inside the pocket (perhaps a piece of chocolate!).

If you have not yet subscribed to Paper Pumpkin, keep in mind that the 3, 6, 9 or 12 month pre-paid subscriptions qualify for Sale-A-Bration benefits.  Ask me how you can subscribe and take advantage of getting FREE stuff during Sale-A-Bration!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper.  Until next time, stamp on my friends.

Painted with Love

Getting back to projects from the fabulous Amy Storrie’s group meeting, I am sharing with you today a collection of “narrow” note cards in a box made using the Sure Do Love You bundle from the Painted With Love Suite.  If you love pink and gold foil, then you will absolutely fall head over heals “in love” with this suite of products!

Here is today’s parade of photographs of the box and each card secreted inside:

Of course Amy managed to choose yet another product bundle that I do not have … I’m tempted to add this to my list of must haves because the box is so easy to make (and it can be made smaller or larger with some tweaking).  First world problems!

Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that were used in this project which can be added to your shopping cart with a quick click on the thumbnails below:

If you have any questions regarding any of the measurements or techniques used, do not hesitate to ask.  Most of the “work” is done by the gorgeous DSP!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper.  Until next time, stamp on my friends.

Myths & Magic in a Box

Wizards, dragons. knights, mermaids and unicorns — oh my!  That is what you will find when you venture into the world of the Myths & Magic Suite!

I really want this product suite, but since I do not have any kiddos of my own I am having a difficult time justifying buying it, other than it is just so darn cute!

Thankfully Amy used a few of the products from this oh so cute suite for one of her projects.  And here it is:

Inside this silver gable box is a little snack cake.  A piece of the Myths & Magic DSP measuring 12″ x 2″ is attached around the box.  (NOTE:  Amy’s original design had the ribbon tied around the box parallel with the DSP; I altered the ribbon to tie horizontally and held it in place on the sides and bottom with mini glue dots.)

Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that were used in the design of the box which can be added to your shopping cart by clicking on the thumbnails below:

If you have any questions regarding any other design elements of this project do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper.  Until next time, stamp on my friends.

Petal Palette Home

I was so looking forward to attending the Stamped with Joy group meeting today to spend some time with my sister stampers at Amy Storrie’s newly remodeled home in Denton but as luck would have it I caught some kind of germs from someone (a/k/a my husband!) and I was not up to going.

Thankfully I am part of a fantastic group of stampers and one of them volunteered to drop off my bag of materials on her way home (not really on her way so that makes it extra special) and Amy sent me photos of what the projects should look like.  Fingers crossed I can figure them all out.  If not, I will be bugging Amy with lots of questions (her projects are fantastic by the way!).

Lucky for me many of Amy’s projects use the Stampin’ Blends so I am going to have a lot of fun as I work my way through the 15 (yes, I said 15!) projects she had prepared for us using the new products from the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.  Here is the first project I chose to complete:

Now how cute is this home décor item?  It uses just about everything offered as part of the Petal Passion Suite – a suite that I absolutely love but do not have yet (I smell a new order on the horizon!).  This was a really quick and easy project that delivers a big WOW factor.

Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that were used in the design of this project which can be added to your shopping cart with a quick click on the thumbnails below:

To make a project like this, you will need:

  • 5″ x 7″ frame
  • Basic Black cardstock cut to 5″ x 7″
  • Designer Series Paper cut to 4″ x 6″

I attached my piece of 4″ x 6″ piece of DSP to the Basic Black cardstock with dimensionals to give it more depth.  The letters are also attached with dimensionals.  I removed the glass from the front of the frame and put it behind the cardstock.

If you have any other questions regarding this project, do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper.  Until next time, stamp on my friends.
