A Plethora of Inspiration

Flowering Fields, Frame, Stampin' up!, BJ PetersLove the Flowering Fields stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration catalog - time is winding down for you to get it for free!  Don't delay, get your orders in now!  I loved watercoloring this frame - and there's a few touches of my BFF - Wink of Stella too - just the right glimmerific touch. 

Bloomin' Heart, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Stylish Stripes, Curvy Corner Trio Punch, Wow!  Check it out!  Zoom in on the Fun Flower punch. . . . did you figure it out?  I punched a Bloomin' Heart thinlit and adhered it to the Calypso Coral cardstock and then punched it out!  I wish you could feel the texture - it's amazing!  I love the contrast of the Gold Foil and the Gold Glimmer paper together.  Yummy!

Botanical Blooms, For the new two, Everyday Chic, Stampin' Up!, BJ PetersIf you are a contrast fan, this card is for you!  The Everyday Chic designer series paper pack needs to be in your craft room because the Black & White designs affords you an easy ability to provide contrast.  Here I've added the customer favorite Botanical Builder Framelits in Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz.  Super yummy!

Love Blossoms, Stampin' Up!, BJ PetersSpeaking of awesome designer series paper - Stampin' Up! is the leader in providing awesome paper choices that make crafting easy!  This card showcases the Love Blossom Designer Series Paper stack.  These paper stacks are the best value in the catalog!  48 sheets 4 each of 12 double sided designs for only $8.00!  My customers tell me they love the subtle heart designs on one side of the paper and beautiful all occasion patterns on the other. 

Botanical Builder framelits, Botanical Gardens designer series paper, memory keeping, scrapbook, Stampin' up!, BJ PetersOh, the beauty!  Of course hubby Jim is wonderful - and cute, but the beauty I am speaking of is reflected in the scenery of the Botanical Garden we recently visited.  As soon as I started taking pictures, I knew the Botanical Garden product suite was the absolute perfect match for these pictures!  Stampin' Up! nailed this product suite!  My customers hopped on the Botanical Blooms bandwagon and made this Botanical Blooms class one of my biggest sellers! 

Botanical Builder, Botanical Blooms, Botanical Garden, Stampin' Up!, BJ PetersI'm so in love with the 3 dimensional Botanical Builder framelits that I wanted to make a Berry Basket of flowers.  Well, as you can see, the Berry Basket actually turned into a wheelbarrel!  LOL!  Some days are like that in the craft room! 

Botanical Blooms, Botanical Garden, Berry Basket, Stampin' Up!, BJ PetersThe Berry Basket does make a cute wheel barrel don't you think?  But, with the addition of the Botanical Builder framelits. . . . . .

Botanical Blooms, Botanical Builder, Stampin' up!, BJ PetersIt's out of this world gorgeous!   And just to think the framelits really do all of the work! 

I hope that you enjoyed this plethora of inspiration that I saved up for you!   I would love to hear what your favorite project is. . . .leave me a note, will you? 


Stampers Dozen Blog Hop - Back to School

SchoolWelcome to the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop for August 2014!   Yea!  This months theme is Back to School and I am featuring a great simple project that is a mommy - or Grandma in my case mini-scrapbook. 

I used 1 sheet of 12 x 12 Real Red cardstock and cut it in half - the 2 (6x12) piece are tied together for the scrapbook!  Simple.  Quick and Easy!  Get those pics off your cell phone and into this cute brag book.  And while you're printing - consider a Project Life by Stampin' Up! page - more quick and easy! 

School 2I used the Little Letters framelits on the front.  I love these letters - and if you don't have a Big Shot - check out the deal this month!!!  You can also see that I used the file tab framelits.  Perfect for this project.  Are you wondering what the DSP is? - It's Flashback from the regular Stampin' Up! catalog.

School 1Here you can see the file tab edges.  You could easily add the names of your kids or grandkids on these tabs!   If you need more pages - that's easy too - just add another 6 x 12 page!  It is tied together with Pool Party cotton ribbon.

School 3Here you can see how I added a strip of the Flashback DSP to the edge of the pages before I cut with the file tab framelits.  Love it! 

Here's a quick reminder of my upcoming classes;
