Pretty Package!

Janets Gift Bag 1

Today I have for you a darling gift bag!  It’s made with the “In The Bag” Paper Pumpkin Kit from earlier this year.  Did you know that if you’re a My Paper Pumpkin subscriber you can purchase past kits?  And, guess what?  Yep, you can still purchase this kit!  It comes with blue circles instead of the Crisp Cantaloupe ones you see here.  I just switched them out, cutting my own circles with the Circles Collection Framelits.

Janets Gift Bag angled

The little clothespins holding the letters come with this kit.  You get lots of clothespins, several sets of alphabet circles, the bags, and the grosgrain white ribbon handles.  The bright orange clothespins I used here are from the September My Paper Pumpkin kit.  The tissue is my own, but I thought it went so well with the bag!  This is my favorite Paper Pumpkin kit so far!  You always need gift bags, and these can be personalized and stamped (if you like) and they’re just SO cute :-)

If you haven’t signed up yet for My Paper Pumpkin, you’re really missing something.  It comes right to your doorstep once a month and has everything you need to put together a fun project.  You can purchase the kits month by month, or you can purchase a prepaid subscription so you don’t have to worry about it!  Once you sign up, you can then purchase the available past kits, like this one!  Click the picture below to sign up ~ and be sure to designate me as your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator!

A Sweet Cup of Coffee!

Coffee Cup envieCome on in…may I offer you a hot cup of coffee?  You know, I would so love to have each one of you over for a cup of coffee and a little stamping.  Wouldn’t that be fun?  (If you live in Southern California, call me, seriously!!)

Anyway, on to today’s card.  I’ve seen several of these cards on Pinterest (here’s a link to one by Vicky Hayes, a Stampin’ Up! Artisan), and just had to make one.  Do you believe this cute cup is made from the Curvy Keepsake Box Die?  Isn’t it darling?

Coffee Cup cu

The steam coming up out of the cup was drawn on Basic Black card stock with the Chalk Marker.  I found some online examples of drawings of steam coming out of a cup and just tried to copy what I saw.   The little heart is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals ~ for added sweetness!

Coffie Cup 1

Would you like to see a bit more sweetness today?  Here’s a photo of my little Elie right after her shower.  She brings such joy into our home.  She’s only 1-1/2 and still has lots of puppy spunk, but who can resist this precious face?

Elie Oct 2014Thanks for stopping by today!  Now, go have a sweet cup of coffee!

Paper:  Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, and Crumb Cake card stock, 2014-16 In Color Designer Series Paper; Tools: Curvy Keepsake Box Die, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Scallop Edge Border Punch; Other Goodies:  Chalk Marker

Beautiful Birthday Blossom for the Pals!


Welcome and thank you for stopping by!  Today is a new Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge and this is a fun one.  Here is this week’s sketch:

PPA225 Sketch

A friend of mine is having a birthday and I made this card for her.  One of her favorite colors is orange, so I decided to use Calypso Coral, White and Gold.  And I added a bit of vellum :-)

PPA225 envie

One of my favorite embossing folders is Lovely Lace, and there is a paper in the Gold Soiree Designer Series Papers that has the same pattern!  They look great together, don’t you think?  I trimmed the flap of my envelope with the same paper.

Fall Burlap Bouquet!

Sweet Posies 1

Hi Friends!  Happy Monday!  Here’s a pretty burlap bouquet to start off your week!  It’s made with some goodies from the October Paper Pumpkin, can you guess what those items are?

Sweet Posies angled

The little burlap bag was cut in half, then lined with the Tangelo Twist sequin trim.  The clothespin and the “sweet” stamp ~ all of these items are from this month’s Paper Pumpkin!  Lots of fun stuff in there!

Sweet Posies InstaThe Pansy Punch and the Petite Petals Punch made quick work of the bouquet, with a single sequin in the centers.  I scrunched up the Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist card stock after punching and then pulled the petals forward with my bone folder.

Beautiful Cards by Bunny!

Bunny 1

Today my Guest Stamper is my friend Virginia Belmain ~ we call her “Bunny.”  And she makes beuuuutiful cards!!  Here are four of her recent cards ~ I knew you’d love to see them!

Bunny 2

Doesn’t she make gorgeous flowers?  She’s used the Flower Frenzy Big Z die and the Petite Petals Punch on the card above.  I love the bow!

Bunny 4On this card she used the Decorative Label Punch for the sentiment.  She punched it out of the two different colors.  The background punched label is cut in half and separated just a bit.  Then the two halves are affixed to the back of the yellow label so they frame it perfectly.

Bunny 3

Don’t you love Bunny’s cards?  She doesn’t have a blog, but she will see any comments you leave here :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
