Pretty Acrylic Frame

Yes! I had a blonde moment.  I am reposting this post but this time I am adding the photo of the adorable post-it note frame.

Today is the final day to order  from the summer mini http://204.228.150.61/catalogs/flash/en-US/20110314_kk34dsh_SummerMini/index.html.

Today I am cleaning up from a summer of creating and getting ready to switch gears to the fall season and the new Holiday mini catalog that is available starting tomorrow. One of my favorite challenges is to use paper scraps and embellishments from my table to create a card or item.

I used retired DSP to create this beautiful acrylic  frame for a birthday present.  All items were on my table including the post -it notes and frame.  I love the way this turned out

Stay tuned tomorrow when we can reveal the Holiday Mini and you can begin ordering from it.

Hello Blossom

We got new neighbors and I wanted to welcome them to the neighborhood.  I made a loaf of pumpkin bread wrapped in saran wrap and tied it with a scrap of retired Christmas fabric and an adorable tag using the Hello Blossoms stamp #123102 for 7.95.  This stamp is only available until Augsut 31 in the summer mini http://204.228.150.61/catalogs/flash/en-US/20110314_kk34dsh_SummerMini/index.html This is when I am glad I have lots of supplies on hand and can dress up an ordinary loaf of bread!

Summer Mini-Going Going Gone

Just as summer is fading fast so are the items in the summer mini.  Check out the  link to the summer mini that ends on 31 Aug.  http://204.228.150.61/catalogs/flash/en-US/20110314_kk34dsh_SummerMini/index.html and let me know if there is anything you need.

My favorite DSP in the mini is the nautical expedition paper.  I loved it so much that I bought the paper and the MDS digital download.  Here are the coasters that I made using the Bighsot, the nautical expedition DSP,  Staminup cork sheets and window sheets.

Who’s Counting?

131 shopping days until Christmas.  Yes and believe it or not the stores are already filled with Christmas decorations which makes me crazy.  But the good news is there are only 6 more days until the new Stampin Up Holiday mini catalog is unveiled and ready to buy from.  Of course since Cammie and I are both demonstrators we already have some of the product in our hot little hands and have begun to create new stuff.  But until then I want to share my favorite card I made last year (only 2 were created).  Please be warned that not all the product on the card is SU but it could be easily adapted.  I love this card because it looks simple but it was not.  That is why I only made 2.

Birthday Cake card

I had to take a break from the pink and black wedding samples because today is my friend Kim’s birthday so I am posting one of the cards I made her for her birthday today to honor her on her special day.  This card was demonstrated at convention by the very creative Carrie Cudney.  As soon as I saw it I knew I had to make it.  I made it using scrap paper and made multiple versions since I had the candy on hand.

Started with a whipser white card base #100730 $8.50

Layer 1: Piece of DSP (not sure of the name because it is retired and a scrap) but it coordinated with the rest of the card.

Layer 2: Pumpkin pie cardstock embossed using the Perfect Polka dots textured embossing folder #117335 $7.95

Layer 3: Created a cake stand from whisper white cardstock #100730 $8.50. The base is from Large oval punch #119855 $15.95 and cutting in half. Stem and plate are a 1/4 ‘ strip of cardstock and the decorative edge of the plate is created by cutting 1/2 of the blossom bouquet triple layer punch. Wrap Hershey miniature candy in Just add cake DSP #124339 $10.95 to create the cake.  Attach  3/8″ Taffeta ribbon around the candy.  Add candles and flames to create a sweet card!

Happy Birthday Kim!!! Hope your day is the sweetest ever!
