Sticky Note Holders

Hi there! Sorry I've been missing in action for a little while. There's been lots to do these past two weeks with school wrapping up for the year. Soon, though, I will have much more stamping time - can't wait!

These little cuties are quick and fun to make. Angie Juda originated the idea, and you can see her video tutorial for them on her blog. She punches a hole through hers and adds a ring to make it a keychain. The cover measures 3 1/4 x 2; score at 1 9/16 & 1 11/16.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Tart and Tangy, Tiny Tags, For All You Do
Paper: Rose Red, So Saffron, Whisper White, Real Red
Ink: Real Red, Garden Green, Close to Cocoa, River Rock
Accessories: Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Old Olive 1/4'' Grosgrain Ribbon, Chocolate Chip 1/4'' Grosgrain Ribbon, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Polka Dot Embossing Folder

Retiring Favourites

This card features some of my all-time favourite products that also happen to be on the Last Chance List. The big flower is from Embrace Life and the sentiment is from One of a Kind, both of which will be retiring at the end of June. The cardstock is Cameo Coral, which will also be retiring. Get these items now while you still can!

This is a super simple, yet striking, card that can be made in under five minutes, and is great if you want to make a whole set of matching cards as a gift. I got the idea from the fabulously talented Becky Jensen. See her original card here.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Stamps: Embrace Life, One of a Kind
Paper: Cameo Coral
Ink: Whisper White Craft, Signo White Gel Pen

Altered Composition Book

I {heart}...the smell of freshly brewed Stumptown coffee in the morning. Trust me, it's worth the trip to Portland to pick up the beans.

I {heart}...diving into a good book on a lazy summer day.

I {heart}...the arrival of the UPS man, who bears my Stampin' Up! goodies.

I made this altered composition book as part of my entry for the Iron Stamper's Competition I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. I used a plain old composition book from the dollar store, and dressed it up by covering it with designer paper, cardstock and embellishments. I cut the paper to fit and sanded the edges slightly. I adhered the Pretty in Pink satin ribbon to the front and extended it inside to make a bookmark, weighing it down with flower diecuts and a filigree brad. This would make a great gift as a journal for a teenager, or even for a new mom to capture precious memories of all the things she {hearts} about her baby.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Paper: Love Sparkles Simply Scrappin' Kit
Ink: So Saffron, Regal Rose (for sponging the flower)
Accessories: Filigree Brad, Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon, Birds and Blooms Sizzlits, Scallop Trip border punch, Scallop Trim corner punch, Sanding Block

Clean & Simple FTL 92

This week's Clean & Simple layout was just what I needed! Unfortunately, I haven't had a whole lot of time to stamp lately, and I find that it's best to start simple when my mojo needs a jumpstart. I thought I'd make use of these three In Colours that will soon be retiring; they work well with the Tropical Party stamp set, don't they? The card is 3x3 and I popped up the smaller flower with a dimensional. This definitely qualifies as a five-minute card, but it could easily be stepped up with brads in the centre of the flowers, or some ribbon knotted around the width of the card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Tropical Party, Flight of the Butterfly
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Dusty Durango, Whisper White
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango
Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch
