Seasonally Scattered

Did you know that there is only one week left to take advantage of the Holiday Catalog? Yep, so make sure you got everything you wanted from it before sit is gone! One of the great sets in this catalog is called Seasonally Scattered. And one of the stamps is this great "love" stamp! 

Seasonally Scattered, Gorgeous Grunge, Heart Framelits
I paired it with Gorgeous Grunge. I thought they went nicely together! I used my Heart Framelits to create negative spaces in the cardstock.

I also used the Heart Framelit to cut out the Love stamp. I added a few extra dots below the stamp to get the whole thing filled in! :-) Make sure you check out the Holiday Catalog one last time to get all the things you want before it's gone!

Hey, Valentine!

Good morning everyone! Well, did you survive Christmas? I love Christmas, but I also love when it's over!! We took down all the decorations yesterday and the house seems so bare...

I have been spending lots of time with all of my preorder goodies from the Upcoming Occasions Catalog (January 6!) I love this sweet lithe stamp from a set called Hey, Valentine! Perfect for playing with those Blendabilities.

Hey, Valentine, Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper, Heart Confetti Punch, White Jute Ribbon
I actually made 20 of these for a swap. The went pretty quickly! There are several sneak peeks on this card. New DSP, a new punch, new ribbon and the new stamp set! All of these will be available to order on January 6th!

Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities with Crystal Effects. 
Here is a close up view of the little fox. Isn't he cute??
I added Crystal Effects to the little hears after I colored them.

If you need a copy of the Occasions or Sale A Bration catalog please let me know and I will send you one!

Valentine Eiffel Tower featuring Seasonally Scattered

I've got a confession y'all.
I've packed away every single Christmas stamp I own. Gone. Sealed in a box with packing tape. Even the DSP. It's gone too. Not to see the light till at least July! 

I just couldn't look at them anymore!! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas. But, I feel like Christmas happened months ago... I feel like it should have at least.... I'm ready to move on to something else!!

So, today I am. I am showing you a project that I made in MAY! Can you believe it? I made it a very long time ago for the summer Convention. But, I think it's pretty timely now. It features the stamp set called Seasonally Scattered that is in the current holiday catalog. You can only get it through jan5. 

Seasonally Scattered, Silver Cardstock, White Embossing Powder
This is actually a box that holds candy!  It was a little tricky to get those "sprinkles" on the white, but with a little masking, it worked out well. 
Valentine Eiffel Tower Candy Box

The stamp was stamped in Versamark and embossed with White Embossing Powder on Strawberry Slush Cardstock. 
Versamark, White Embossing Powder, Strawberry Slush Cardstock, Big Shot, Banner Framelits
Finally, I punched the letters out using the Big Shot and Banner Framelits. 

You can see the Back to Black DSP that runs down the sides. 

If you'd like to make this Eiffle Tower box, you can find the tutorial in last year's Whole Lotta Love Project Planner (see details below.) Iy you are ready for Valentine' projects as well, check out all my past Valentine posts. Speaking of Project Planners, I am working on a new one! Well, in my head I am... Hoping I can get a new Valentine one done before the new year begins! So, please forgive the sporadic posts in the next couple of weeks!

Fancy Friday, Fancy Tags!



Hello and welcome to your next stop on the Fancy Friday Blog Hop! 

It's the Friday before Christmas and we are focusing on TAGS! Hopefully at this point, all you have left is to wrap those presents, so I have a few Fancy Tag ideas for you.



 I usually stick to traditional Christmas colors. But, to tell ya the truth, I'm pretty sick of Christmas colors at this point! So, my favorite combo of Strawberry Slush and Pool Party is what I chose for these! 


These tags are a mix of things from the Holiday Catalog and the upcoming Occasions Catalog! That paper is a sneak peek! It's actually from the Sale A Bration catalog! It's spritzed with Strawberry Slush ink. So exciting to see it change from white to pink!

Again, more SAB paper. And, you see the "string?" It is a piece cut off of some new ribbon that will be in the Occasions Catalog as well. It pulls apart so easily and really is fun to work with. 

Don't forget about the wrapping paper. It is in the Holiday Catalog, but really can be used all year. I am stocking up on it before it is gone! More paper from Sale A Bration as well here!


Ok, I hope you feel inspired! I know I am ready to put Christmas behind us and start with the Occasions Catalog goodies. It's awesome y'all!! Just wait till you see it!

You're off to my friend Jane Lee. I can't wait to see what she has for us! 

Local Friends! BINGO is just around the corner!
Last day to RSVP is December 23!!
