I am so excited when my Paper Pumpkin surprise arrives in the mail each week! Even better is when I can use part of the kit to create something entirely different! The Paper Pumpkin for April 2015 features the base that this sweet greeting is built upon. That kraft sleeve is the Paper Pumpkin part. All other goodies are from the 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up annual catalog or the 2015 Occasions Catalog.

Y’all know how much I love vintage (as does Shelli Gardner, co-founder and CEO of Stampin’ Up!), so I couldn’t wait to put all these beautiful elements together. image

And the fact that there is not a specific sentiment means this beauty can be personalized for any occasion.

As far as supplies are concerned, I had them all listed here with links to my store, but there was a glitch and I lost all of the text in this post! So sad when that happens!  I will gather those items and list again, complete with links. Meanwhile, visit my store here! 

Thanks for stopping by! God bless.

I’m always excited for the Scrap It Girl Favorite Things Friday! It gives me a challenge to create something fun.

20140508-221929.jpg
Today I’m blogging from my tiny crafting corner in my RV, somewhere on the east coast just steps away from a long pier where manatees and dolphins frolic in the sea. It’s a sweet spot, if only for a while, then it’s back to reality!
Speaking of reality, let’s get back to it!
This Friday’s assignment is to use our favorite embossing folder.
Mine is Beautifully Baroque from Stampin’ Up!

It adds such elegance to a card.
I used it with Graphic 45 paper, the Place in Time collection.
Here’s my finished card.

Hope you enjoy it and maybe get a bit of inspiration to join the fun! If so, just click HERE and add your creation!
Thanks for stopping by, be blessed!

The Design Team at Scrap It Girl has a fun challenge: choose our favorite journal, calendar or notebook for the Favorite Things Friday Challenge.
Was this ever easy for me! I love this mixed media travel journal that I actually made a few years ago on a scrapbooking trip.

20140206-224008.jpg
It’s my favorite.
I have a lot of great memories creating this too. I met new friends and also learned new techniques.
My absolutely most favorite page is this one, where the kid leather glove (an estate sale find) holds tickets.

20140206-224508.jpg
Here are more pages:

This started out as just a plain mini clipboard I picked up several last year when they were on clearance. I’m hosting my Christmas Open House next weekend so I thought I’d have a few ready mades available for purchase.

First, I pulled out my mini clipboards.

20131012-002007.jpg
I had to remove the hardware, which wasn’t easy! I used these to accomplish it.

20131012-002150.jpg
I inked the sides of the clipboard with Stampin Up’s Early Expresso ink and I used Sookwang double stick tape to adhere some of that awesome Seasons of Style Designer Series Paper. (See previous post for the same paper used in the wreath project). My Stampin Up 1″ stitched grosgrain ribbon provided just the right finish.

20131012-002649.jpg
I cut a few sheets of copy paper so this clipboard would be ready to use. Voila! A sweet little gift idea in just over an hour.

20131012-002902.jpg
And yes, it has a little stand in back. How stinkin cute!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed weekend!

I saw this fun wreath online and had to make one to display at my upcoming Christmas Open House! If you are local, it’s Saturday Oct 19!

20130930-214911.jpg
This wreath is made of Stampin’ Up Designer Series Paper and ribbon, a styrofoam wreath and floral pins.

20130930-215330.jpg
I LOVE this paper! Not only is it durable enough to cut into strips and curl, it is fun and right on trend for the holidays. Cool thing though, it can really be used all year long for cards or scrapbooking!
Love it too? You can find it HERE

The ribbon is also Stampin’ Up. It’s 1″ stitched edge Cherry Cobbler grosgrain and I use it for cards but I think it’s perfect for hanging the wreath. Besides, the red in the wreath matches perfectly! You’ll find it right here!

The wreath came from Hobby Lobby. The label says it’s a 12″ white “extruded” wreath and cost $4.47. The pins, also Hobby Lobby, $4.99 for a pound. (I put the wreath sticker on the pin bag).

20130930-220855.jpg

Ok, here’s how to make one:
Order your paper and ribbon from my site here(thank you very much!).

Cut paper into 1 1/8 X 6 1/2 strips. I used my Stampin’ Trimmer

20130930-221143.jpg
Curl the ends of the paper strips. Tighten or loosen the curls as desired.

20130930-221449.jpg
Place the paper curl on the wreath and pin it down. It works much better if you just position it, hold it in place, then pin.

20130930-221747.jpg
I put the ribbon on like this so it would hang flat, then tied a bow at the top.

20130930-222048.jpg
Now all you have to do is cut, curl and pin to your heart’s content! It won’t take long to create this beautiful wreath to share as a sweet gift or to make your home even more special this Christmas! I love it so much I’ll be making a fall one next!
Thanks for visiting my blog! God bless you!
