Archive for the ‘Thank you card’ Category

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.

This card is a go-to favorite design of mine so I decided to share it for the Scrap it Girl June Challenge: Things With Wings. 20140601-151046-54646715.jpg I love it so much! It uses some of my favorite tools and supplies. Here is my card: 20140601-151204-54724975.jpg And a few close-ups: 20140601-151234-54754431.jpg 20140601-151231-54751917.jpg 20140601-151230-54750707.jpg 20140601-151233-54753107.jpg See why it’s a favorite? And it’s great for most sentiments- get well, happy birthday, sympathy, etc. Here are some of the products I used: (all from Stampin’ Up! Just click my “contact” button to email for details on ordering!) 20140601-151410-54850097.jpg The butterfly stamp is called Swallowtail. It’s a large stamp that can be used in a variety of techniques.

Another stamp set is Itty Bitty Banners I used my Big Shot (this thing is FABULOUS!) with Bitty Banners Framelits and Pretty Print embossing folder (retired item).

To achieve the shiny gold effect, I used Gold Stampin’ Emboss powder, VersaMark stamp pad and (another favorite) my Heat Tool and the cute little Embossing Buddy (not pictured… he was being shy)

My ribbon – OHHHH. I LOVE THIS RIBBON! is: 1/2″ Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon.

Choose inks and cardstock colors to achieve the look you want!

So that’s my share- want to get in on the challenge? All the deets are here: Scrap it Girl! and yes! There’s a prize! Thanks for stopping by! God bless! Kathy Bo

Hearts, hearts and more hearts! That’s my thing all year long, so when the fabulous Scrap It Girl gave this challenge to those of us on the Design Team, I was just thrilled to share this card:

Be my Valentine!

Be my Valentine!

You can see this card in the previous post but now I can share the details!
I created this simple but sweet card with products from Stampin’ Up, and held a workshop where several ladies enjoyed making it. Here are some of them “loving” the creative process: image
What do I love most about this card? Well, hearts are my “thing” all year long – I have a heart on my pillow so when we change pillowcases I know which one is mine, I draw a heart on my take out cup or leftover box and I even have a heart on my toothbrush! It’s not so much about “mine” as it is that hearts just make me happy! So of course I ❤️ the heart!

Here’s what I used to create the card (and it’s a standard A2, which is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2″ card.)
Stampin’ Up:
Card stock: natural, real red
Stamps: the heart came from the Best of series: Best of Love
the sentiment is from Delightful Dozen
Ink: real red
Embossing folder: Beautifully Baroque
Sizzix Bigz Die: Top Note
Ribbon: Very Vanilla 1/2″ seam binding ribbon

Look for these items in my Stampin’ Up store

And if you LOVE hearts like I do, or if you just want to enjoy a fun challenge, play along here and you may receive something sweet!

Thanks so much for stopping by! God bless!

Category: My fave craft storage idea!

This was soooo stinkin’ easy because I love, love, love this desk!

20140131-233949.jpg
I have two of these desk tops- if you know Ikea, you know that you buy separate components to make what you need. I think “IKEA” in Swede means “genius”!

I store my punches beneath the glass so I can see them at a glance. It’s perfect for pondering my next project!
I have repurposed some Stampin’ Up! shipping boxes to serve as trays for my punches to slide in. One day I hope to find someone who can make some that look nice!
I also store 12 X 12 paper and my go-to cardstock beneath the glass in the other desk. The two desks butt up to one another and create an island in my small studio. Even better is: two desks means two chairs! My crafty friends and I enjoy creating together with a Lazy Susan full of tools, right in the center of my desks!

Here’s the paperwork that came with the desks and supporting units.

20140131-235626.jpg

20140131-235634.jpg

20140131-235644.jpg
I’m so glad I kept up with this paperwork because these are the nicest desks I’ve ever owned, and if anything ever happens to them I will at least have something to go by if we have to find replacements.

Well, I tried to find the glass desk tops online but it seems Ikea doesn’t carry them anymore. I DID find this on Amazon, though!
I challenge you, dear reader, to choose one of your favorite things you enjoy most about your crafting area! Share it below and inspire us!

That’s it for today, y’all have a blessed weekend!
