Baby Bear Baby Shower Treat Bags

Hi everybody! I want to share a fun little project I did recently for a lady who means so much to me- my Housekeeper!! If it wasn't for this amazing lady, I'd be living in filth! I am not good at keeping things clean (I'd rather be stamping!!!) and so she comes every other week and helps put us in order. She is so good to us and when she asked if I could make little goody bags for her son's baby shower- I didn't even hesitate! I don't normally do custom orders anymore because I just don't have the time, but for her- I found the time!

Her son and his wife are having twins- a boy and a girl! And, their theme is Teddy Bears! So, I knew Baby Bear was the perfect stamp for this project. And, I didn't even own it! I've been on the fence with this set, but I knew it would get it's worth when I got to work on 50 bags! 

I did use up some retired products I have (RIP Brights Color Stack- my all time favorite paper!!) The pink paper is from the current Bundle of Love DSP. And, these Kraft Bags were recently on the clearance Rack and I think I pretty much bought all that they had! I love them too! Unfortunately, they are no longer available.

I'll be recreating this project, along with two other baby themed projects tomorrow during Facebook Live. Make sure you join my group page so you can join me live! Everyone is welcome!

Petal Passion Fancy Folds Class To Go

Petal Passions is over the top fancy! You can’t make a boring project when you use these gorgeous products! Thats why I designed a Fancy Folds card class around it! In this class, you will learn five simple Fancy Fold techniques anyone can make. They will make your cards look like they were professional made and wow the recipients! . 
You will need Memento Black, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette, Pool Party and Berry Burst ink pads. You will also need Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party and Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends. I recommend that you use Fast Fuse and/or Tear & Tape to assemble your cards. You will also need Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots. If you need any of these supplies, you can order them here on my Stampin' Up store page. 

Each class kit will arrive at your front door sorted and organized by project. I will do all the scoring, punching and cutting for you (other than what needs to be done with your new Framelits.)  
  This class to go has four options:
Option #1 $80
This is the full Class To Go Kit. It includes the Petal Passion bundle (a $62 value!), a bolt of Whispeer White Organza Ribbon, a Sale a Bration item of your choice and all five Make and Take materials. When you choose this option, you are getting the ribbons for free! You will also receive the full PDF tutorial. Email me for the registration link.

All class kits and included product will be ordered and prepared together after the deadline. This is a preorder only and per SU policy, I do not have products on hand ready to ship.

Sweet Stampede Blog Hop- Petal Pallet

Hello everyone! I am so super excited to bring you the first ever Sweet Stampede Blog Hop!! My team, or those who have purchased the Starter Kit from me, are called The Sweet Stampede. We have come together this month to have our first ever blog hop! I hope you will take a minute to hop around and see everyone's flower themed projects! A special thank you to Britney who put this all together for us! Your hard work behind the scenes means a lot to me!

My card features the Petal Pallet stamp set along with the cute sentiment from the Big on Birthdays set. I actually cut one of these larger stamps in half (gasp!) to have this smaller sentiment. It's ok to cut your stamps! They will go back together like a puzzle on your blocks! You can see a complete supply list for all the products I used at the bottom of my post. 

Ok, time to hop along! Next up is Krystal.  Make sure you go all the way through and check out the other ladies who have joined in this month! Thanks for stopping by!

Sunshine and Rainbows Saturday Afternoon

Hey everybody and happy Monday! Whew am I glad Spring Break is over! I could use a little bit of peace and quiet around here.... LOL!

I have a cute little card for you today I made just for fun this weekend. I saw a card very similar to this online (made with products I don't own) and I knew I could recreate it with the Sunshine and Rainbows Bundle from Stampin' Up!
The colors I used for my rainbow are Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo. I also brought in a few clouds from the Up & Away Thinlits as well as a few hearts. I hope you like it! It was a fun Saturday afternoon project!

Facebook Friday- Picnic With You

This week, I'm making three projects using the fun Picnic With You Bundle. I've had lots of request for this fun bundle and I was happy to play with it. I also was able to incorporate a few of the new items on Stampin' Up's third release of Sale A Bration items! If you can't join me on Facebook, I'll come back here and add the recording once it's ready. 

EDIT to add recording:

For the first card, we're making a fun layered picnic basket. 

The second card involves a window and a flower basket. 

And the their project is one of Stampin' Up's Mini Silver Gable Boxes that I've embossed. I used the little wine glasses from the stamp set to create the fun tag. Wouldn't this be a great GNO treat box! 

They have all the products I used and measurements for each project

Springtime Foil and Basket Weave Embossing Folder- Stamp Club to Go

Good morning my friends! It's Spring Break here in Texas and I am taking most of the week off to be with my kids and my parents who are in town visiting. SO, if you email or call me, it most likely will take me a while to get back to you! Please be patient! 

But, I have a quick post to show you this month's Stamp Club To Go card project! 

The card this month features the beautiful flower from the Springtime Foil DSP, which is one of the new Sale A Bration options. One of the patterns is covered in these beautiful flowers. I paired them with the branch from the Petals and More Framelits. 

I actually colored all of them with the Pink Pirouette Blends and then cut them out with my scissors. Great work for sitting in front of the TV!  I then mounted them on a frame cut with the Layering Square and Stitched Shape Framelits. Last, I added a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock that has been embossed with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder, also a Sale A bration item. 

The flowers are all unique, so each card is a little bit different as you can see! I loved them all! 

Now, as you might not know, I have a monthly Stamp Club To Go program. It's a 6 month program where I send you three complete projects each month and you place an order each month. One month, you receive Stamping' Rewards! 

I am starting a new group in April.  If you are interested in Stamp Club to Go, you can find the details here. You can see the past projects by scrolling through all theses posts. 
Let me know if your interested!
