Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop April

Welcome to the April Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop. This month is all about Kids which is great because I have a few of those and am always needing ideas for their birthdays or their friends birthdays. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's creations because they're always awesome! As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number #13 on the Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop - Kim R. of Stamping with Kim. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below. 

I decided to go with a Super Hero theme because I have three boys and they love all things super heroes. When the Occasion's Catalog was released one of the first stamp sets I ordered was Cool Kid because I knew it would come in handy with my boys. I may have had Captain America on the brain as far as colors went because I chose to use Real Red, Pacific Point, and Daffodil Delight. It is Bright and cheery. I used the Starburst Framelit as a layer because it most resembled those burst you see with the words POW! in them. This card is perfect for the next little boys birthday party we attend.
Items Used:
Stamp Set- Cool Kids
Paper- Fresh Prints DSP, Pacific Point, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Ink- Basic Black, Pacific Point, Real Red
Tools- Big Shot, Starburst Framelits, Circle Framelits
For my second project I decided to make this cute little matchbox that I used my Punch Board to make. I saw a video on YouTube by Diane Dimich on how to make the matchbox and you can view it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApIzFP9m_fY These boxes are easy to make and only require a 6x6 piece of card stock or DSP. I can use these for party favors with candy or to tuck a special little gift into. 
Items Used:
Stamp Set- Cool Kids

Vase of Flowers

Here is another project to help you fall in love with the Spiral Flower Die.

I found these cute little vases at my local 99 Cent Only Store. Two came in a package so they were only 50 cents! I made 5 flowers with card stock and Fresh Prints Designer Pack and attached them to floral wire. I placed them in the vase and added some Chevron Burlap Ribbon. I thought I would add a couple of stamped images from the Language of Love stamp set to the front of the vase. What a cute little gift for your friends or family. I took one to my sister to put on her desk, I'm so glad she loved it.

This project was one that my Stampin' Up! downline made at our Crafty Night Owls team meeting in January. If you are interested in joining Stampin' Up, I would like you to be apart of my team the Crafty Night Owls. If you join Stampin' Up!during Salabration you will only pay $99 for $150 in product and all the business supplies you need to get started.

Roses

Like I previously mention, I'm in love with the Spiral Flower die. I make 56 flowers and glued them to a 4 inch foam ball and then put it on this 4 inch white vase. I looks absolutely beautiful and these flowers won't die!

If you don't own this die, I think you should purchase one today! Don't forget we are in the middle of Sale-A-bration so if you spend $50 on merchandise you will be able to choose a free item from the Sale-a-bration catalog. Contact me for more info.

Mason Jars

I had some mason jars up in my cabinet for about a year, I finally decided to do something with them. This was the project we created at Stamp Club in January.

I have to admit that I am totally in love with the Spiral Flower die. I can't stop making those cute little flowers. The Fringe scissors have to be another favorite of mine too. I love the look of the finge flowers and the scissors make the process so quick and easy. Since I'm confessing my love for craft items I will tell you that I also love the chevron burlap ribbon, it is so nice and easy to work with. I will have to buy more and hoard it, I mean use it on everything!

Stylin' Stampin' Squad January Blog Hop

Thank you so much for joining us for our January Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop!  Love is in the air and our talented group of design team members have a Whole Lotta Love Goin' On as we are excited to be sharing some NEW Occasions Catalog goodies and some Valentine's Day projects with you this month!

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog!  We are always excited to hear from our followers!

You should have just left stop number 8 on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad  blog hop Jamie H. of Unique Ink. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find  the full blog hop lineup below.

For my first project I decided to use one of my favorite sets from the Occasions Catalog, Happy Congratulations. It is such a cute set and I used the color pallet from the Fresh Prints DSP stack.

There are so many cute prints in the Fresh Prints DSP stack but I chose to use some of the polka dots sheet. I tend to lean toward polka dots when ever they are available because I love them. The card layout was something I saw on Google images, I failed to follow the link to see where it came from so I apologize for not having that info.

Items Used:
Stamp Set- Happy Congratulations
Paper- Fresh Prints DSP, Crumb Cake Card Stock, Real Red Card Stock, Coastal Cabana Card Stock
Ink- Real Red, Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, Basic Black

For my second project I decided to make a new Scrapbook page for my frame. I've had a Christmas page in there for a year now and I figured it was about time to update it with something more versatile since it is displayed in our living room.

I decided to make some of those fringe flowers with the new Fringe Scissors from the Occasions Catalog. Now these flowers are a little bulky so I probably wouldn't make them for a scrapbook page I was going to put in my scrapbook but since my frame is shadow box type of frame, it was worked just fine. I also used the Spiral Flower die to add some small flowers to the page. I love the colors and the combination of flowers. I planned to use a picture of my husband and I but I forgot to print it, so I used a picture of my boys with my niece and nephew. I love the way it turned out and it will be proudly displayed in my home for a while.

Items Used:
Stamp Set- Baby Prints
Paper- Fresh Prints DSP, Crumb Cake Card Stock, Real Red Card Stock, Coastal Cabana Card Stock
Ink- Real Red
Other- Big Shot, Fringe Scissors, Spiral Flower die, Large Rhinestones

Now make sure to hop on over to Kim R. of Stamping with Kim blog to see more great projects!

I am alive

OK so it has been a while but I am alive. Back in October I had our third little guy, Brycen Cole. He came a little early but thankfully he was just fine. I decided to take a little break and gave myself till January to get adjusted and back to creating. Well it is January, well January 8th to be exact and I've gotten back to work. I stayed up the past couple nights, first cleaning up my craft room and then creating. I have Stamp Club this week and I have the monthly Blog Hop I participate in so ready or not I had to get to it.

I wanted to create something simple to begin with so that I could feel productive and get my creative mind working. I decided to use the Sweetheart Treat Bags which includes 12 heart sacks, 12 die-cut labels, and 12 pre-cut pieces of Pool Party Baker's Twine. I decided to decorate by using some hearts from Hearts a Flutter Stamp Set and the little flag is stamped with Follow My Heart Stamp Set. AfterI filled the bag with some candy, I tied the bakers twine and added my embellishments. Cute, simple, and fast.

Well that is all for today, make sure to come back tomorrow for the Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop.

October Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop


Thank you so much for joining us for the October Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad  Blog Hop! This month we are focusing on the Fall season. It’s the time of year when fireplaces start crackling with warmth and we dig out our sweaters. This month’s blog hop will showcase many of the Stampin’ Up! products that are available to make  Autumn themed creations. We hope you enjoy seeing how we use the products to create our projects and feel inspired to come up with some great projects of your own.

You should have just left stop number 11 on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad blog hop – Annie Lee at Love Me Cards. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn’t work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below. 
 For my first project I made a box that can hold a rather large amount of candy or a small gift. The box is 6 inches by 3 inches. I used the Sweater Weather DSP to decorate the box along with the Wonderful Stamp set and coordinating die. I almost forgot that the sentiment comes from the Photopolymer Stamp Set Another Thank You.

It was rather simple to make and easy to decorate. 


My second project is a quick Thank you card. You can never have to many of those laying around to send to those helpful people in your life. I used the Gently Falling Stamp set, Beautiful Baroque Embosiing Folder, and the Photopolymer Stamp set Another Thank You, and some chrochet trim

I hope you are inspired by these Fall projects. Make sure to continue on through the entire Blog Hop, you won't be disappointed.

August Blog Hop

 
Where do the months go? It once again is time for the Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop. This month we are focusing on the New Holiday Catalog. That catalog is packed with great ideas and great products. 

As I sat there staring at my new products I just couldn't decide what I wanted to make or what theme I should go with since this Catalog has Halloween, Fall, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Oh it is my favorite time of the year and I can't wait to start decorating my house. Which for me begins in mid-September because I decorate my house with lots of Fall decor then Christmas decor comes up after Thanksgiving.

Well I decided to share two projects and my first is a Thanksgiving themed project. Now this is an easy peasy project. I used a Decorative Window Gift Box and added a bow which was made with the Gift Bow Bigz die and some Sweater Weather DSP. I wanted to add a sentiment or something so I pulled out the Tags for You Stamp set and stamped the Happy Thanksgiving on some Whisper White card stock and punched it out with the Label Bracket Punch. I did shred some Crushed Curry card stock and crinkled it up and put it in the box, now to decide on what treat to put in the box.

Items Used: Decorative Window Gift Box, Gift Bow Bigz Die, Sweater Weather DSP, Tags for You Stamp Set, Bracket Punch, Chocolate Chip Ink Pad, Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Marker.



Now my second project is a Christmas project. It's never to early to get started with those. When I first saw the Holiday Catalog I just knew that I would be ordering the Santa's List Stamp Set. It is just one of those classics that I couldn't pass up. I also paired it up with the Season of Style DSP stack, and the Expressions Thinlits dies.

The thinlits come with three words, Thankful, Merry, and Love. They are so pretty and the words are larger than I originally thought. They will be great to use on Scrapbook pages too.

Did you notice that my envelope also matches my card? Now you can do this too. In the Holiday Catalog you will find Envelope Liners Framelits Dies. How awesome are these. It literally took me 30 seconds to add the liner to this envelope. What a fun little detail to add to your envelopes.

Items Used: Santa's List Stamp Set, Black Stazon Ink, Chery Cobbler Ink, Crumb Cake Ink, Cherry Cobbler card stock, Crumb Cake card stock, Whisper White card stock, Early Espresso Cardstock, Blender Pen, Expressions Thinlits, Season of Style DSP stack.

Now that you have seen my Holiday Catalog creations make sure to hop along and get inspiration from all of these wonderful SU! demos. Next on the list is Tonya's blog.
