Itty Bitty Banners Baby Card

Wow!  What an amazingly productive crop weekend!  I went with a list of 11 things, knowing I wouldn't accomplish them all.  But I managed to finish 8 of the 11 plus a couple other things that weren't on the list!  I'm quite happy with that.  Now just to find a few minutes to unpack and take some pictures so I can share them with you...

Today I'm sharing a card that I received from Lorna Raczynski using the retiring Itty Bitty Banners stamp set.  Isn't this an adorable baby card?  And what's great about it is that you could whip up a bunch of these in no time.  Switch out the pink pirouette for soft sky for a boy or pear pizzazz for a gender neutral baby card. 

Quick post today - I need to go get everything unpacked.  Have a creative day!

Note:  The Itty Bitty Banner stamp set is only available until June 2nd or while supplies last.

Another Thank You by Stampin' Up!

Good morning!  I'm always in need of thank you cards so when I see a cute design I usually make up a dozen or more.  These cards were CASEd from one that Dawn Olchefski had posted on her blog.  If I remember correctly she used a different color and a different greeting but the layout is the same.  This is a super simple design that can easily be changed to suit any occasion.  It was one of the card design options at this months card buffet but with a birthday greeting instead of thank you.

I was quite surprised to see the word bubbles framelits on the retiring list - I love this set.  And guess what they are on sale for 50% off!  A steal of a deal at only $15.48!  Order yours online today before they are gone.

Have a creative day!

Birthday Bash Designer Washi Sheets by Stampin' Up!

Good morning!  I'm so excited for this weekend.  I'm heading out to a crafting retreat.  I'm so looking forward to spending the weekend getting my craft on and enjoying the company of friends and meeting a few new friends.

Today's project is all about the Birthday Bash Washi Sheets.  You may be wondering what those are and where I found them.  They can be found on page 11 of the Occasions Catalogue in the lower right corner - easily overlooked!  And what they are is a 6"x12" sheet of washi paper (adhesive sheets).  You can easily punch them, die cut them, stamp on them, cut, tear - pretty much whatever!  So fun and if you love washi paper you will love these as well!

Have a creative day!

Playing with Paper Pumpkin Kits

I'm here to share, once again, how much I love my Paper Pumpkin kits.  I love that they give me a quick option to create a cute project.  But I also love coming up with alternate designs using the supplies in the kit.  Today I'm going to share a couple things that I did with the February 2015 Paper Pumpkin kit.

The first photo is the project created as it's meant to be.  A cute little accordion fold card that tucks into a little box.
 The kit includes these fabulous felt letters.  After using the letters on the first project, I used the negative piece of felt and created this long and narrow card.  And then made a matching envelope.
And for the last project, I cut the accordion fold card into 4 mini cards and used the stamps and inks that came in the kit to create little thank you notes.  Then of course coordinating envelopes are needed so I used our envelope punch board to create those.  So fun!

I'm headed to a crafting retreat this weekend and you can bet that a couple of my April kit - which by the way is adorable - is coming with me.  Be sure to follow me on instagram (@sherrystamps) if you'd like to see what I'm creating throughout the weekend.

If you are interested in giving Paper Pumpkin a try, you can sign up here.  There's no time commitment, you can give a try for a month or two and see what it's like.  If you decide it's not for you, just put your subscription on hold or cancel it and there's not penalty.  FYI - I've heard that May's kit is FABULOUS and one you won't want to miss.  Be sure to sign up before May 10th to get May's kit!

Have a creative day!

Flashback Layout

Good morning!  Have you had a chance to go through the retiring list yet?  I spent some time going through yesterday and I can't believe how much is leaving us!  As I was looking through photos trying to figure out what to post today I came across this layout and almost everything I used on this layout is retiring!  Crazy!
  • Point & Click stamp set 
  • Flashback DSP
  • Petite Pennant Builder Punch
  • Perfect Print Alphabet Die
This was one of the layouts we did at scrapbook club this month.
A tip that I provided this month was to put a strip of vellum over a busy piece of dsp if you'd like it muted just a bit.  If you look closely, you can see there's a small piece under the title.  I initially had the title right on the dsp but it got lost because of the business of the pattern.  By simply adding that little piece of vanilla it softens it just enough to make the title more noticeable.  Such a simple trick but makes a huge difference.

Have a creative day!

Sun and Sand Layout

Good morning!  Hope your are having a great weekend.  I have a layout to share with you today.  This was one of the options for scrapbook club this past week.  I love how it turned out.

The photos are of Jordyn, her beach volleyball partner and their coach back in 2013.  Her coach is a huge influence in her life, so I thought it would be nice for her to add the journaling to the page.  I did want it to be a bit on the private side so I used the mini treat bag to create a little journaling pocket. Another great use for this little gem.

Recognize the big ampersand that was used for the title?  It's actually one of our embossing folders!  I ran it through and then cut it out.  The volleyball was cut using my Silhouette Cameo.

Have a creative weekend!
