Day by day

The Day by Day My Paper Pumpkin kit arrived at the perfect time for me to create a quick gift for a friend.  I pretty much made it as designed but used other stamps to make it more themed to the month of year.

Mini Calendars

I love calendars and especially love the little calendars that have the rip off pages that fit nicely on a standard card front that can be displayed all year.  I made these for my famiy, friends, coworkers, and customers.  The design was simple and I used various sheets of the Share What You Love DSP.

Happy 2019

Happy 2019.  Today’s post is the cover and the January calendar pages that I embellished for my friends annual desktop calendar that I get her each year.  I purchased the calendar from Shutterfly.com like I always do but this year I made it special and embellished each month with various Stampin Up products.  Each month I plan to post the calendar page for the month.

Happy Christmas

 

I try and make a handmade ornament every year and when I saw this on a fellow demonstrators blog I knew I had to make it.  I bought the wood slices from Amazon and used the glitter embossing paste from Stampin Up to make the ice rink.  I stamped the Spirited snowman #148075, colored him and hand cut him out.  The sentiment is from the Merry Christmas Thinlits #147912 and the coordinating Merry Christmas To All stampset #147912.  Love this sweet ornament and I even kept one for myself!

Starbucks Anyone?

Book folding has  become a passion for me and believe it or not it requires little supplies and is much easier than it looks! Recently I made this book fold book for my friends birthday who loves Starbucks.  I even covered the book with a Starbucks bag.  As I folded each fold I wondered if the Starbucks logo had a meaning.  Turns out, in 1971, Starbucks (then a mere fledging coffee shop on the Seattle waterfront) was looking for a logo, something that would embody the seafaring history of its home city. … Heckler “pored over old marine books until he came up with a logo based on an old 16th-century Norse woodcut: a two-tailed mermaid.”  So now you know!

Anchor Card

2018_09_13IMG_3365

Todays card is an alternate design for the Stampin Up April 2018 My Paper Pumkin Kit – You;re My Anchor.  I Punched a hole in the box lid from the kit and then added left over elements from the kit to create a card that fold flat to fit in an envelope.
