Patterned Occasions

Good Evening Ladies!

I bet you thought I forgot about you!  Well not so, I would rather be doing what I LOVE to do and sharing that with you anytime!  First no time, working overtime, then computer problems.  Hopefully, we're back on track.

So I better get going.  Today, I wanted to share with you my Shoebox Swap card from our meeting this month.  Sale-A-Bration is one of the Best Times ever !!  Who doesn't love to get FREE products?  The Patterned Occasions Stamp set is one of the choices that you have. 

 
 
I love the New Fold on this card!  Something different and really easy to do. 
 And yes, it still fits in the standard A2 envelope. 
 

I saw this FUN fold on Sandy Hancock's blog, so I had to give it a try.  Sandy has some directions on her blog, you can check them out by clicking ( Here ).   I just love that this set has so many Occasions to be celebrated !!!  So give this one a try!

Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango along with Sahara Sand and Whisper White for cardstock.  The Sycamore Street Designer Paper has lots of fun patterns to play with.  The Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack was used with an added bit of bling on the punched flower.

A Big Thank You to Sandy for sharing !!!

I want to Thank you for stopping by today and your patience while I was MIA!!

Happy Stamping !!!
Sue

Valentine Gifts for the Grandkids

Wow, I was busy all weekend trying to get everything done.  Package is in the mail today for arrival on Wednesday !!  Whoot Whoot!

So here are a few things on the way for Valentine's Day !!

 

Let's start with their cards.  I saw the "Sending a Kiss" card at my Upline's house (Susan Campfield)  recently and also on her blog.  So I changed it up a little bit by using different cardstock colors and added a smidge of More Amore Designer Series Specialty paper.   Couldn't figure this one out at first glance, but the kiss is made with the Blossom Petals Builder Punch.  You can check out Susan's blog by clicking ( Here ).


Next up is the Adorable Raccoon Valentine Treat Box:

 

Isn't this just the cutest thing ever!!  Well I fell in LOVE with this little Raccoon when I first saw it at our Quarterly Meeting.   Kimberley Morris is the original creator of this adorable project and she does have a video with all the details.  To visit Kimberley's blog, just click ( Here ).




This is the "Billion Dollar" Candy Bar Holder.   I looked all over for these Candy bars.  They're seasonal of course and they are made by Russell Stover.  Finally found some at Walgreens, but I had to go to 2 stores to get the number of them that I needed.   This is very similar to my other Candy Bar Holders that I've made.  I had to adjust it just a little bit as this is a bigger Candy bar.

Recipe:
Cardstock is:   3 1/8" x 10 1/4"   Score @ 5 and 5 1/4" on the 10 1/4" side.   Then score 1/4" on both of the 3 1/8" sides.  Cut the middle flap on both sides up to the 1/4" score line and then add some sticky strip to both sides to close. 
Designer Paper is:  2 3/4" x 4 3/4"
Decorate as desired. 




These gorgeous "Be My Valentine Hearts" are my take on one of Erica Cerwin's Hearts a Flutter Project Planner ideas.  They are super easy and will be so much FUN to give as a Valentine.  The Candy Hearts can be found in with the Wedding Favors @ Michael's.  Who would of thought that there are so many things there to have FUN with!!   I used the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle, the Heart Punch and Small Heart Punch.  Add a little Baker's Twine at the top and some Red Glimmer Paper.   You can check out Erica's blog and some of her other projects in her Planner by clicking ( Here ) .

Thanks to Susan, Kimberley and Erica for sharing their creativity with us!!!


Thank YOU for stopping by so I could share some ideas with you for your Valentine's Day gifts!

Happy Stamping and have a Happy Valentine's Day  !!!

I had a little bit of an issue getting these to all fit, but you get the idea.


Here's a closer view for you.  I separated them out so you could get a good closer look.
These 3 x 3 Mini Cards are so easy to make and you can actually add the same to a regular size card too!!  They make the perfect card to go along with any gift!!



I believe that I saw these cute card on the Tour De Freaks January edition.  The Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper is also one of the choices available during Sale-A-Bration.  Along with the Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack.
