Words of encouragement

I was going through my stamp collection and came across the Encouragement stamp set from Jaded Blossom and knew exactly what I wanted to use it for.

I made these simple treat bags for my niece’s dance group. Just a little pick-me-up when they go to their next competition.

Until next time…have fun creating!!

I forgot to take a picture of the inside (darn) but it does say Happy Birthday to you.  I also added a strip of the gold washi tape from Sale-A-Bration to the bottom of the card.

I am sure she will love it.

Happy Birthday Kelly

As you already know I have busy with my new craft room.  I did manage to make my sister a birthday card for her 41st birthday in March.  So I used the new Balloon Bouquet Punch from Stampin Up to help me out.

Here’s what I came up with…

The card is a full 8 1/2″x 11″ piece of card stock folded in half.  The Designer Series Paper is from the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack

Here is the inside of the card…

I cut out 41 balloons in total.  I also used some Wink of Stella on some of the balloons.  The sentiment comes from a Sale-A-Bration set called Perfect Pairings (unfortunately it’s no longer available).

Easter Treats

Oh does it feel good to blog again.  I have been fortunate enough to get my own craft room and we have spent time painting and putting it together.  It’s now set up so I can craft and blog but it is still a work in progress.

I saw this awesome idea from Pootles and just had to make my own version.

IMG_0495.JPG

Here’s how I made this project…

Designer Series Paper 11″ x 3 1/2″

Score on the long side at 1/2″, 1 1/4″, 9 3/4″, 10 1/2″

Score on the short side at 3/4″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/4″, 3″

I used the Word Window Punch from Stampin Up to punch a window.  You could use anything that will fit in the space.  I also used the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and added a rhinestone to the center.

I would love to see your version of this project.  Feel free to link it up here or post it on my Facebook Page here.

Until next time…have fun creating!!

Happy Birthday to You

It was my cute little niece’s birthday recently and I naturally had to make her a birthday card.  I used a lot of products from the birthday collection from Stampin Up.  They are fun and super easy to use to create cards.

I loved it so much that I had to make my mother one for her birthday as well….

Happy Anniversary??

Before I get to my project I need some feedback.  I am lucky enough to be getting my own craft room!!  As exciting as it sounds, it’s also overwhelming.  From paint colour to set up…etc…..it’s a lot to think about.  I am looking for any tips or suggestions for those that have craft areas.  What do you like about your space that is working for you?  What would you change?  I appreciate all of your help.

Now on to my project….

A family member had a birthday coming up and as a paper crafter it’s hard to buy a card (not that I haven’t done it).  The problem is that this card was for a male.  I’m sure I am not the only one who has a hard time making cards for men.  Here is what I came up with…

Here is the inside…

And an envelope to match….

Not too bad if I do say so myself.

All Wrapped Up

I decided to package up the treats for the people that work with my daughter….word on the street is that they love treats.

I also made a simple tag using Stampin Up punches and My Creative Time’s Sweet Wishes set.

I put about 8 or 9 of the treats I made the other day into some plain white Chinese Take Out Boxes with some shredded paper.
