Baby Bumblebee Card

Check out this sweet card that I received as a swap from Donna Wizniuk!  Isn't it adorable?!  She used the Baby Bumblebee stamp (137153) from the occasions catalogue (only available until June 2nd).  I think the debossed hearts on the right are such a nice touch. 

Tip:  The stamp and greeting come as one image but if you'd like to use the bumblebee without the words simply cut them apart before mounting them on the wood block.  Mount the image on the block as intended and then mount the words on the end  of the block.  This allows you to use them separately without having to mask or use markers!

Have a creative day!

Celebrate Today Graduation Card

Good morning!  I have another swap to share with you today!  This one was created by Susan Paterson (I believe).  Graduation season is upon us and this makes a great graduation card for either man or woman - girl or boy.  The silver embossed images just step the card up a notch - love it!

Have a creative day!

Today and for the next few days I'm going to share a few swaps that I've received over the last few  months.  It's been busy catching up since returning from Hawaii and then also preparing for my Out with the Old, In with the New BOGO Event.  I have been playing a bit with some new product but not as much as I'd like - hoping to change that real soon so that I can share some of the fabulous new products!

Todays card was created by Lorna Raczynski - such a soft sweet baby card.  She used the foiled vellum - which I haven't used enough.  I loved that she cut the diaper shirt from silver foil cardstock!

I'll include a supply list below.  There is one item that is retiring - the Sweet Baby greeting from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set.  It will only be available until June 2nd or while supplies last.  If you'd like to check out the most up-to-date retiring product list, you can see the pdf here.  Remember these items are only available until June 2nd or while supplies last.

Have a creative day!

Paper Pumpkin - First 2 months at 50% off!

You all know just how much I love my Paper Pumpkin kits!  This weekend I challenged myself with May's kit to come up with alternate designs using JUST the contents in the kit.  This months kit is super cute as it is so wasn't hard to work with:)  Here are the projects that were intended to be created.

In the kit you received enough supplies to create 6 of these cards and 4 gift bags!

I didn't alter the bags much, I really loved them just the way they are.  But I did create several different cards.  I've shared those alternative projects on my private facebook group for those of your who subscribe to Paper Pumpkin with me or are on the Treasure Stampers team.  There are 6 alternate projects posted there.

From now until June 10th new subscribers can get 50% off their first two months by using promo code SAVE50.  If you are in Canada and would like to subscribe, you can do so here.  I'm also offering a little gift to all my subscribers (new and active) from now until the end of June.  Not only will you receive access to the private Facebook group but I will send you a decorated wood mount stamp case for you to store all the ink spots and/or stamps you will receive in your monthly kits! 

Hope you have a creative day!

Travel Journal - a look inside

Good afternoon!  I thought I'd share with you how I documented our Hawaii trip.  Awhile ago, I shared with you the travel journal I decorated using our Let's Get Away Project Life cards and accessories.  The notebook is actually the kraft journal from the occasions catalogue - I LOVE these notebooks and I'll share why in another post.  I've been stocking up on them because I noticed that they aren't continuing on in the new catalogue.  Anyway, I digress... back to the travel journal.

The first few pages were used to keep track of some of the things I thought we might want to do or see while we were there and of course places to shop (because I love to shop on holidays).  I pretty much used the first part to take notes while I was doing research before we left on the trip.

You can see that the edges of my pages are covered with washi - I did that to reinforce them and to pretty them up.  I knew the book would be flipped through many times and I didn't want the pages to tear.  As far as supplies, I didn't bring alot with me - I had a few different colored pens, the Let's Get Away accessory pack, a few stamped images, die cuts and stickers that were travel themed.

I borrowed my mom's Instax printer so that I could print the odd photo from my phone along the way.  So some of the layouts include polaroid photos.  I also included other bits and pieces - like the logo from a great coffee place (I saved the sleeve and just cut out the logo) and then a tag from something Jordyn and I bought.

I includes some receipts.  And some Hawaiian themed stickers that I picked up in a local shop.

I also included the itinerary from our trip to the Polynesian Cultural Centre.  Because it was only open to Stampin' Up!, the itinerary was personalized for us.  I thought that was cool so had to include it.

One of my weaknesses is cute sticky notes.  I picked up several different styles while we were away, so I had to include a few of those in there as well.

The other thing I did was once the trip was done, I added a random observations section.  This is where I noted things that we noticed about Hawaii that we don't generally see back home.  One thing was selfie sticks - I cannot get over the number of selfie sticks!  The ABC Store even had a whole display dedicated to them.  They even had 'selfie spot' signs indicating that this would be a great place to take a selfie!  Maybe I'm just not going to the right places - but I don't think I've ever seen anyone around here use a selfie stick.  However, I guess it's not really touristy either.  I don't know, that just really stuck out to me. So the random observations section was where I noted little things like that.

I loved this way of documenting our trip!  And any trip that just Marcel and I take will be documented like this in the future.  However, because this was a family vacation, I will also document the trip in our 2015 album using Project Life and traditional scrapbooking.  You will definitely be seeing more of this trip!

Have a creative day!

Your Perfect Day Wedding Card

Good morning!  Wedding season is upon us so I thought I'd share a card we created at my upline's recent event.  It uses the Your Perfect Day stamp set from the Occasions catalogue.  I love how it looks embossed in the pewter embossing powder!
And check out that beautiful vellum flower added to the cake! It just adds a nice touch of elegance.

Have a creative day!


Supply List:
As I was looking through the catalogue putting together the supply list, I realized we don't carry pewter embossing powder anymore!  But silver powder would work wonderfully as well:)
