July Thank You Gifts


Every month I like to include a little thank you gift for anyone who places an order with me.  If they order online, I will mail them a card, otherwise it's tucked into their bag when the order arrives.  So I'm always looking for cute little gift ideas that don't require too much time.  Some months I have to make a lot, others not as many. 

This month I decided on a tag using the beautiful new Watercolor Wings stamp set.  I LOVE this stamp set - the butterflies end up looking so beautiful!  I encourage you to try playing around with different color combinations - it's amazing how good they look.  This combo is soft sky, lost lagoon and pear pizazz.


Have a creative day!

Sprinkles on Top - Convention Swap


Good morning!  One of the stamp sets that I loved in the new catalogue is the Sprinkles on Top - I just love the little donuts - they are adorable.  So I decided that I would use that set for my convention swaps.  I'm participating in an organized swap and really wanted to use a set that would be a little less main stream.  I love getting swaps using sets that I don't own or maybe wouldn't buy myself.  It gives me and my customers a chance to see something a little different when they come to class or visit my blog. 

I ended up making 60 of these and didn't finish them until Monday (left bright and early Tuesday morning).  Nothing like cutting it close.  Lots of little pieces went into this swap.  It's easy to forget just how time consuming all the little things can be when you are making 60 of them!  But they are done and I'll be coming home with 60 different cards!  Woot! Woot!

Have a creative day!

Hello Life Mini Note Cards


Getting tired of seeing Hello Life kit projects?  Today's my last day of sharing but this doesn't include all the projects that I created with this one kit - I had a few more cards, a couple of gift packages and another 3x3 card!  Way to stretch a kit!!


This first photo is of some of the 3x3 cards I made.  Again everything apart from the bases came from the kit!  I love mini note cards - they are so quick and easy to whip up!

And then I also created a little shaker card...


For this one I did add the piece of black dsp because I had already created another shaker card using the heart shaped piece that came in the kit.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing how you can take a kit and create something completely different using its contents!  Have a creative day!

Hello Life Tags


Continuing on with the Hello Life projects... today I have 4 tags created using the 'polaroid' type pieces.  Once again everything came from the kit apart from a few scraps of white cardstock.  For these projects I used the Perfect Pennants stamp set.  Wouldn't these be cute on a card front?  It's amazing how much you can make with just this one kit.

Have a creative day!

Hello Life Cards

Good morning!  I'm so excited... only 1 more sleep until we leave for Salt Lake City and Convention 2015!  I still have a ton to do, but I'm happy to say that I was organized enough to have a full week of blog posts scheduled!  That's more than I have been posting while at home.  I likely won't post to my blog while I'm gone but I will be posting on both Facebook and Instagram (@sherrystamps) if you'd like to follow along.

I have got a fun series of posts for this week - with a couple interuptions to break it up:)  The series focuses on the Hello Life project kit.  This kit includes all the supplies to create this fun home decor piece on the left.  However, you can use the pieces in the kit to create so much more if you'd rather not have the decor piece.  Today I'm sharing some of the cards that were created using the kit.


The only additional supplies that were added to the kit were a few scraps of crushed curry cardstock and a package of whisper white notecards!  I created 12 cards plus the rest of the projects I will share with you later this week and still had some supplies left over!!!


I love kits for the ease of the projects but sometimes it's fun to see what else you can create using the supplies in a kit.

Have a creative day!

Baby Shower Invitations


In June I had a client contact me to make some shower invitations for an event she was planning.  She's a good client - I made her wedding invitations and several of her friends' invitations and this is the second set of shower invites that I'm making for her and they are for one of the brides whose wedding invites I made.  So fun!



So she gave me the color scheme and said she wanted to include a little elephant and maybe some chevron.  Apart from that she was pretty open to ideas.  So I created three different ideas (I will share the others in another post) - this was the one she chose.  I love the grey and yellow - perfect for a gender neutral shower - they don't know whether the baby is a girl or boy:)

Thanks for making my blog a part of your day!

Fancy Folds Class - in person or to go


Good morning!  I hope you had a great weekend.  Mine was fabulous - I actually had some time to prepare for some upcoming classes!  It's nice to get back into stamping, seems like it's been awhile. I actually have some things to share with you now:)

Every summer I run two classes - a fancy fold class in July and a Christmas in August class in August.  Sometimes I will add a couple more but you can count on those two classes being on my calendar every summer. I love experimenting with various folds.  Sometimes you get in a rut creating the same types of cards which is one of the reasons I add a fancy fold class to my calendar every year.  If you are looking to create some fun folds - none of them are difficult - I'd love to have you join me.

Empty Stamp Containers - Great for holding cards!


I have discovered lots of great uses for our empty stamp cases - especially the wood mount cases.  They make great storage for rhinestones, pearls, in refills, Stampin' Spots that you receive in the Paper Pumpkin kits etc.  But I love this idea that I'm sharing with you today.  It has a handle added to the top!  Such a cute way to gift a coordinating set of cards!  We made this a few months ago at one of my uplines events.  One thing she did mention is that when you buy the handles, you'll want to take them to the isle with the screws so that you can purchase shorter screws.  The ones that come with the handles are just a bit too long.

Have a creative day!

Masculine Bow Tie Card


I was going through my photos this morning and came across this card that I created for Father's Day and don't think I've shared it with you.  I love how cute the shirt looks with the bow tie, which was just done using the Bow Builder punch!  So cute. 

If you'd like to learn how I created the shirt, I've pinned a video on my masculine card board that shows you how to make the shirt and a regular tie.  So fun for masculine cards.

Thanks for stopping by today!
